MILES OF EVIL DENS Offering Allurements to Innocent Girls Effort to Protect Them. It has come to the knowledge of the W. C. T. U. that keepers of infamous houses in St. Louis have a capital of $300,000 to secure new victims for their nefarious business. A corres pondent of the Christian Herald says: "There are miles and miles of evil dens that cover their dark deeds with a sign "Restaurant," or "Girls Wanted to Work." Many an innocent girl has entered these apparently re spectable places, only to be drugged and dragged to a living death. A school teacher was rescued recently by an uncle who found her in enforc ed slavery." May God move every Christian Heart to aid in sounding the alarm. No girl ought to go to St. Louis un accompanied by a proven friend, un less true and tried friends are to meet her. XX Encouraging. St. Louis, April 24.

CLAY TOWNSHIP Commencement, the Most Successful Ever Held. The commencement of Clay town ship schools was held at Greensfork last Friday night under the direction of Mr. B. II. Linderman, township trustee. There were two graduates from the high school and eleven from the common schools. The occasion was one of the most enjoyable, the M. E. church being filled to the doors. President R. L. Kelly of Earlham made the class address. His address lay along the lines of growth into the intellectual life giving Lincoln, Glad stone and Bismarck as beacon lights. Supt. C. W.

ACCOMPANIED BY DAUGHTER His Views on Civil Service and His Estimate of President Roosevelt. Hon. William D. Foulke, who is in the city preparatory to leaving for Europe, is looking the picture of iVfi TL- Isn wiring a button, "I am for Richmond.' ' "How is civil service getting on?" a Palladium reporter asked of Mr. Foulke. " Civil service is getting on fine," said Mr. Foulke, "in fact it is better cared for by far and lived up to by President Roosevelt than by any of his predecssors. He is a prince of good fellows and treats everybody alike. If any man in office goes wrong the President is after him hot footed, and does not stop to think what party he belongs to. If he is found guilty he is punished and that's all there is to it." "How do you like the President a? a citizen," we ventured to remark? "He is certainly a splendid citizen and a great leader among his friends" said Mr. Foulke. "He is of power ful build and very athletic. Just to show you how strong he is I will re late a little incident. Some time ago a party were out horse-back riding, and one of the ladies in the party met with a mishap and fell down a cliff. At this juncture the President came along and seeing the lady was at a loss to know how to get on her horse, picked her up, dead weight, and placed her safely on the animal's back. This feat required great strength." tXTs The State Convention at Lafayette Next Firday. The state convention of the T. P. A. will be held at Lafayette next Fri day.

PRESBYTERY THIS BODY ACTS WITH REFER ENCE TO THE RESIGNA TION OF REV I. M. HUGHES, D. D. From His Long Pastorate in the First Church of This City. We the ministers and elders of White Water Presbytery assembled this 19th day of April, do with great regret accede to the request of Dr. Hughes and the First church of Rich mond for the dissolution of the pas toral relation between them. We appreciate his long and useful pastorate and his successful services during this time. We do also appre ciate the fact that he has been a pow er in the Presbytery, having been a member since its organization, and during these years giving of his wise counsel and earnest service for the advanceemnt of the Lord's Kingdom in this part of Indiana. We trust that the same wise counsel and ear nest service will be retained to us still for many years to come and that his influence and power may be a pos session that White Water Presbytery may never outgrow. We, therefore, in acceding to this request for the dissolution of the long and useful pastorate, do so with great regret and with prayer for God's blessing upon pastor and people in his good providence for years to come.

VINDICATION FOR CASSATT IN THE MATTER 0F INCREAS- ING THE CAPITAL STOCK OF PENNSYLVANIA. FIFTY DIVIDENDS Show the Effects of the P., C, C. & St. L. Business, Which is Outgowing the Road. A financier, in speaking of Presi dent Cassatt's administration of the Pennsylvania and the attacks which have been made on the property by hostile interests, says the bear raids on Pennsylvania have about spent their force, and the public is begin ning to realize how unjustly to the management the criticisms of its policy in increasing its capital stock have been. The Pennsylvania shows, in spite of the adverse conditions of the late winter, earnings of 9 1-2 per cent, on its entire Cjapital stock, new and old, and in spite of the fact of its new capital has not of itself been bringing in a cent of revenue beyond a merely nominal banking increment. If the great railroad system has in a given period declined, and under con ditions of the most unfavorable char acter been able to carry the burden of an inactive capitalization of fully one-fourth its entire capital stoek there need be no uneasiness as to its position. The truth is the business of the railroad is growing so rapidly that it is unable to handle it all. Its history of fifty consecutive years of cash dividends has shown the wisdom and conservatism of this policy, and the present showing is a sufficient refutation of the claims of the bears and a satisfactory, assurance to its stockholders of the safety of this policy as to the future. When the contemplated improvements are car ried out the road wrill undoubtedly show earnings of fully 15 per cent, of its entire capitalization. WILL NOT CONFLICT Dental Association Meeting and May Festival. The opening of the Dental Associa tion's meeting and that of the May Musical festival occur on the same night, Wednesday, May 4.

They will hold their banquet at 10 :30. So it will be seen the two meetings will in no wise con flict. RAINS IN KANSAS. (By Associated Press.) Kansas City, April 25.
