Jacox some three weeks ago, was discovered in a livery barn at South Pend, where they had left the rig to be called for by the owner. The horse was in good condition and had evidently been well cared for. Mr. John J. Guipe and daughter, and Mrs. Harry llumrichouser of Pierceton, Indiana, were visiting Mr. and Mrs. llumrichouser of Plymouth, this week. Mr. Guipe is a prominent citizen of Elk hart, Indiana, and was for many years a member of the board of education of that city. The true hero in agricultural circles, says the Tazewell county (111.) Tribune, is the feller who can husk and crib one hundred bushels of corn per day. These are the boys who can take the prettiest girls to dances and spelling schools this winter, and who will take the cake at all the kissing bees. In the face of the alarming reports received from Walkerton, of the spread of small pox in that district, it is only right that every known precaution be taken to avoid if possible any chance of infection in other cities. A petition was forwarded to Dr. Wilson of this city, signed by fourteen citizens of Tee garden asking that the board of health take means to isolate Andrew J. Keck and wife, who came to that place after being exposed to infection at Walker ton. Dr. Wilson at once took vigorous and etlicient measure with a view to public protection.

It is possible that an amature opera company will be organized in the near future amongst the musical talent of Plymouth.

Are you aware that the Independ ent has a lirst -class job depart Li-?nt in connection with its oilice.

Warner and Kyser the liverymen ot Argos are anxiously looking for the re t urn of a snu ot h t ongued st ranger claim -ing to hail from Mentone, who hired a horse and buggy from them last Thurs dav ostensiblv to drive to Donaldson.

Wednessday was Halloween and gave the small boy an opportunity which he was not slow to improve. Many gates were missing on Thursday morning and the top of the llag statt upon which the weather signals are displayed was found decorated with a large wheelbarrow Halloween like taxes and the date for paying your subscription for a paper comes once a year and time honored cle mency compels us "to grin and bear it." About two and a half miles west of Tyner City where a wagon road is be ing built, the road bed for live hundred feet has suddenly sunk out of sight. Some thirty loads of gravel were placed on this spot last week, and on Friday that portion of the road was to all ap pearances as solid as any. Saturday morning it was found sunk and in its place was a slough ten feet deep. No cause has been discovered that could' account for the phenominon. C M. Welch left his safety bicycle in the rear of the store on Tuesday even ing, and when he looked for it Wednes day morning it had disappeared. He mourned the loss of his "bike" and camo to the conclusion that the same route as Louis Suits wheel which was stolen last week, but by the exercise of a great amount of detective ability, he finally located it where some of his friends had left it for safe keeping. It cost half a dollar to square the storage bill. Shrewd advertisers do not stop in dull times, but spread printer's ink thicker than ever. In rushing times money is plentiful and people are more likely to hunt you out, regardless of special bar gains, but in duller times they scan a dollar closely. They as closely scan the paper to see where that dollar will go the farthest in goods purchased. This is so manifest that great advertisers and prosperous merchants do not re lax their advertising pressure in dull times. Nathaiuel Andrews, an account of whose injuries by a Pennsylvania freight train appeared in last weeks' is sue of the Independent, ded at s p. m. Saturday. Dr.Wilsonaftt r amputat ing his arm gave every attention possi ble to the case, but the shock to the system was so great that the patient could not rally and gradually sank till death released him from his sull'ering. The man's brother who lives in South Pend, when telegraphed to refused to do anything and diil no'even attend the funeral. The remains were interred Sunday in a pauper's grave. Such treat ment as this injured man received at the hands of his relatives while slowly dying among strangers, is hard, to say the least, and a brother who is capable of such action must be wholly without a heart. No matter what the (lead man's past may have been, it would seem that Christianity and common humanity would have prompted any relative pos sessed of (me spark of kindred feeling to have at least come to the bedside of his own brother. Such inhuman action will receive its own reward.
