In speaking of enterprise, we are re fering more particularly to manufactur ing interests, and will remark, if there is anyone in Plymouth that has came to the conclusion that they are no benefit to a commnity, it would repay them to take a day oil", utilizing the time to go and scan the different enterprises estab lished in our midst. These are industries comparatively in their infancy with a rapidly increas ing patronage. The promoters uf these life-giving enterprises are doing an ex tensive business, employ large numbers of workmen, and men who live here, spend their money here, and help to stimulate the financial and social ele ments of Plymouth. We need more manufacturing indus tries in Plymouth. If we wish to see our beautiful city tollow up the extra ordinary advantages it has already at tained, everybody happy, with plenty of money to buy the necessities of life, business on the boom, all our citizens with plenty of work to do, and each one so busily engaged in their different avo cations that they cannot spare the time to meddle with the business of some else, do not obstruct progress. (Jive your assistance to any efforts that may be put forth to make our city the habi tation of thrift and industry. Talk that way, and be willing to use your money in helping forward such worthy causes. If in the near future, parties should visit our widely known city, which they will to learn of our advantages, which are second to none, give them the benefit of what you know. You will thus show them that you area wide-awake citizen and that you are in terested in one of the prettiest, best and most widely known little cities among the thousands that dot here and there the most rapidly developing state on the American continent. Rut if you cannot do this, and would prefer to throw cold water upon any or all of the undertakings and advance ments that might be induced to come our way, why well, get out of the way of your more energetic neighbor any how. If you have business out of town at that time, or even a day latter, it would be better for the community at large for you to attend to it at that time. ' Uut we hope and try to believe Ply mouth has not one man within her co porated limits that is "built" that way. This matter does not only interest those who are property owners, but it is of vital interest to every man who has to depend upon his labor for livelihood as as well. There is not the slightest doubt that by next spring, such opportunities will be ottered. Will we as citizens use our best endeavors to advance the interests of Plymouth V Hand Crushed. Fred I Iyer, a brakeman on the local freight train, No. 1Ö0, L. E. k W. If. R., had his right hand caught between the deadwood of a box car and an oil tank orrthat road, while coupling cars near the depot in this city at 12:10 p. in. Tues day. The back of his hand and fore arm were badly mangled, but luckily no bones were broken. Dr. Wilson dressed the wound and Mr. Ilycr was able to proceed to his home in Michigan City. From the statement of the injured man, it is learn ed, that the two cars were so situated at the time of the accident as to render it very ditlicult to properly effect a coup ling. The crew of the train were in a hurry and in endeavoring to make a quick coupling, I Iyer got pinched. It is hoped with due care no penna nent disablement will result, although the injury is a most painful and com paratively dangerous one. I Iyer had been braking on this train for the past live years. A Plain Statement. As stated to our patrons when the first issue of the Independent appear ed in Plymouth, we intended to issue weekly for live weeks at least, over 1,800 copies. The alloited time will not expire for two weeks, and the probabili ties are that we will continue to send out the same number as sample copies Hut it is our intention the coming week to solicit subscriptions. We have not as yet asked this favor, believing that our duty lay, in first show ing to the people what kindof a publica tion we intended to give them before soliciting their suffrage. We have done so, and in this attempt leave to their judgment as to w hether the Independ f.nt is worthy of their support. The few issues presented to you is a criterion as to the future complexion of this paper. Whether it has come up to your standard of journalism for a weekly, and whether it is entitled to your assistance in the way of subscrip tions, we unhesitatingly submit to those who have done us the honor of perusing its columns. The policy of the I x dependent has been outlined in its previous numbers, and though it may not be in accord with the majority of our Marshall coun ty citizen?, we are constrained to say, it is not antagonistic to any man who may differ with us. Our entire effort will be to give an unbiased version of all local events, ar d keep as near as possible to motto: "If you cannot speak well of the man, say as little as possible." Therefore, during the coming week a representative of the Independent will make a personal canvass of the city of Plymouth. If we have satisfied you reader, as to our ability to present a good local home paper, your assistance will be gratefully received. Hi Henry's Minstrels. A crowded house greeted Hi- Henry's Minstrels at the Centennial Opera House last Monday evening. The performance was fully up to the standard of excel lence which has made Hi Henry's name famous in amusement circles during his 10 years before the public. Every act was good, the company one of the strongest small companies on the road, and the costuming elegant and appro priate. Every feature of the performance was good and judging bythe continued ap plause met the hearty approval of the audience. It is matter of regret the accommodat ions of theoperahousearesolimitedand of such a poor nature that it is utterly impossible to do justice to an entertain ment of any kind. Hi Henry was un able to use the gorgeous silk plush dra peries which he carries for his lirst part. The scenery belonging to the house would disgrace a barn and is devoid of any pretei tions to artistic beauty. It is bad enoug l to have to endure the sight of such ja mdiced apologies for scenery even wh;V listening to a lirst class show and what ine result would be with an inferior company can better he imagined than expressed. The ventilation of the opera house also need some regulating. Taken all in all the opera house in its present con ditions is a disgrace to the city and the only wonder is that the citizens of Ply mouth ever get a chance to see a thea trical company here. The management of the house could confer a favor upon their patrons if they would take some steps to restrain the whistling and stamping with which the gallery gods emphasize their applause. Some good man with a hickory club might have a salutary effect upon these persons be havior. Old Residents Dead. .Sunday morning, Oct. 28, C. II. Logan, aged 75 years, passed away.

WORDS OF COMMENDATION. Rays of Sunshine Gleaned From Our Exchanges, Commenting upon the the Independent.

The new paper is a nice, neat appearing, six column quarto, full of home news, and editorial matter of the populist pursuasion. The News gladly accepts it as a new exchange. In fact while the News sincerely be lieves that the populist fad will have a short life, not unlike many other of like character in the political arena or more properly among the has beens- yet it also believes that it is these little "side shows," so called, which keep new ideas before the American people and keeps them from falling dead under the heels of old political hobby horses ridden to their death by the old political organi zations. In other words, it is allired re freshing to read something new, even if that something'does not co-inside with one's own ideas. Nappanee News.

We consider our judgment was nor at fault.

It makes no difference to the average newspaper man, how far removed another publisher may be from him in his views politi cally, they, as a rule, are generous enough to give an unbiased opinion of the impression created, when a new pub lication is placed upon their editorial table as an exchange.
