A Fact which many good people overlook, or forget, in deciding where to get their EYE GLASSES and SPECTACLES, is properly fitted glasses are absolutely essential to correct the defects of the eyes. Improperly fitted glasses are most as bad as none. Did you know that J. R.

SAD ACCIDENT. Frank Moyer, an Employee of the Indiana Novelty Mfg. Co., Meets With a Painful Injury While at Work, and Dies Short ly Afterwards. On Tuesday evening Trank Moyer, while at work at the Indiana Novelty Manufacturing Company's factory had two lingers of his right hand cut off by a circular saw. He was taken to Dr. Wilson's ollice where his hand was dressed, Dr. Jackson assisting. During the operation and dressing of the injured hand, Moyer showed signs of weakness, and everything that medical skill could suggest was re sorted to to relieve him. Hut it was dis covered that acute congestion of the lungs had set in, this probably being superinduced by the fact, that Moyer after being injured had walked to the Doctor's ollice through the cold night's air with only an overcoat thrown around his shoulders, and had, as we under stand, been subject to lung trouble for some years. Everything possible was done for him but in about three hours he died. The remains were taken to Uunnel's store and his friends and relatives noti fied. The deceased lived near Donal son, was 20 years of age, and had a wife and two children. He had only been working at the Novelty works a few hours when the accident occured. It was in every way a sad accident and one under ordinary circumstances would not have been attended by any great danger. In the prime of man hood and just entering upon the duties of a new situation, commencing work on the eve of a new year, it seems doub ly sad that the angel of death should claim such a one as he, and leave be hind the mother and two small children to mourn the loss of a husband and father. The remains were taken to Donal son for interment and as the casket was taken from the undertaker's store and shipped on its last journey, the small crowd which accompanied it, and who had known the deceased, must have re alized the full truth of the fact that "in the midst of life we are in death." Relief to Nebraska. The call last week issued to the citi zens of Plymouth and vicinity for help to relieve the want and distress in Ne braska, gave gratifying results yester day as the last box of sweet charity, packed by the loving hands of tender hearted wives and daughters of Indiana who, with that generosity that so be comingly adorns their every action, re sponded to the appeal for succor, was prepared for shipment. As the last article was placed in the car, it displayed the interior filled to the roof with the substances brought in from all parts of the county. It would be superfluous to thank the don ors, as each individual's heart has re ceived that offering by the deeds of charity. We are constrained to give an item ized list of the articles shipped yester day to Lexington, Dawson county, Ne braska, over the Pennsylvania II. 11.: Overcoats, 2Ü. Dress coats, 103. Vests, 128.

Expounders of the Gospel as Citizens. We never could see any sense in the j doctrine that because a man has adopted j the profession of preaching he should drop his citizenship and his interest and active labors in politics. The state and municipality does not relieve him from taxation, or from the penalties f r transgression of the laws or any of the duties of citizenship imposed upon any other person. The hope for the perma nancy of our institutions rests in the justice and foundation on the eternal principles of right. The church is the most potent power in all the land for the inculcation of not only morality and righteousness, but of a true liberty lov ing spirit and right political principles and action. Every man's religious du ties should be identical with his political duties. A preacher is entitled to the privilege, and no citizen is more urgently and strongly bound, from his peculiar calling to teach, that men should be gov erned in their voting by the precepts of that gospel all Christian preachers ex pound, as that they should be so in their business or in their daily intercourse with their neighbors. Such proper preaching is consistent and practical, because it has a tendency to infuse mor ality into every branch of life and action. To impress upon men their moral re sponsibility in patriotism and civil life as well as in religion is not a duty which any faithful preacher has any right to evade, or put in practice only on Thanks giving days. It is notorious though that the majority of the pulpits in this land are deplorably silent on everything which savors of politics or even of na tional or municipal morality. Once in a while a preacher is found who is ready to denounce political immorality and to thunder out maledictions against the corrupt practices of politicians in gen era!, Hut the preachers of this kind are so Tire and the denunciations so general, that the shot are so scattered that they do not even scare the enemy. Neither do they teach directly what is right po litically. It seems to be the rule with the average preacher to avoid all ap pearance of any political exhortations These diffusions go all around the world. and their preaching on men's political duties are all in the abstract. It is the duty of the honest preacher to some times preach politics. Preach it as did Isaiah and Jeremiah, and there will be purer politics and purer religion. Farewell Sermon. Iiev. Lattimore preached his farewell sermon at the Presbyterian church last Sunday morning to a large and appreci ative audience. His sermon was com posed mostly of a review of the past year, covering not only religious, but moral advancement. He dwelt to a large extent upon the deaths of promi nent individuals, not only in America, but the old world, with a short review of their past life, and the benefits the world at large derived from their efforts during life. The effort of the reverand gentleman was very pronounced, and was filled with plenty of food for thought. A sermon of deep and earnest study, and an able, and logical discourse. At the close of the services he announced the vacancy of the pulpit, also giving a de tail account of the work done during his pastorate here, nearly seven years. Ilev. Latimore will be missed by those who have met Sabbath aftc Sabbath to hear him expound the Scripture, and it is to be hoped his new home will be as pleasantly surrounded as the one lie leaves behind. Small Troubles. Most of us can endure the great disap pointments which fall to our lot in life with a certain degree of fortitude and complacency because we are apt to re ceive the sympathy of the world, or of our sincere friends at least. Then there is something in the knowledge that we do not suffer for naught, that there are others who have passed, or are passing through liko troubles and disappoint ments. A large misfortune of any kind rather exalts the victim, and gives him a sort of prominence which is to a de gree consoling. Hut it is the little foxes which destroy the vines. The little har rassing, nagging, every day disappoint ments arc the wearing ones, and they receive no sympathy from any one. Who has any words of consolation for the merchant who by some blunder has lost a good trade he had set his mind upon? Who cares for the editor who has of fended a good patron he has spoken many kind words about, by some unin tentional blunder in his last issue? Who does anything but hugh at us when our hopes of a tine time at an excursion are all blasted by an inopportune storm, or when our last photograph makes us look ten years older and a great deal uglier than ourselves? Who cares when we! get the mitten from the girl on whom for weeks we have doted and dreamed, or when all our election bets have been lost ? These are the woes and the cares which wear out one's soul, which de stroy his peace and make him grow old with fretting, became theie are some of them mixed in with our everv dav life. llitenipered remarks. When a man un tier like circumstances would us? more Hible words wrong end first than can be counted. A Piano at a Nominal Price. Chicago's largest music house, Lyon S: Healy, has moved into a magnificent new building. They have a number of slightly used and second-hand pianos returned from World's Pair renting, etc. etc., which they have determined to sac rifice rather than to try to make room for. These instruments comprise square pianos at 810, 80Ö, sk), 100 and 125. Upright pianos at 8125, 8110, 8150, 8105. 81'.0, 82(H), 8225, 8210 and upward. Grand pianos at 820, $250 8300 and upward. Nearly all originally sold for from two to four times their present price. Almost all prominent makes (in square and uprights) are rep resented, including among numerous others Chickering, Knabe, 8teinway, Weber, Decker, Steck, Fisher, etc. This is an opportunity that will not occur again, as Lyon & Ilealy have not moved for twenty years. Immediate attention is therefore necessary. A good plan would be to order a piano, leaving the selection to Lyon & Ilealy. However they will send a list and full particulars upon application. Any piano not prov ing satisfactory may be returned at their expense. Address at their new salesrooms, corner Wabash Avenue and Adams Street, Chicago. Distance is no obstacle in taking advantage of this re markable chance to obtain a piano, for in proportion to the saving to be made the freight charges are insignificant. If you do not already know them by repu tation any banker will assure you of Lyon & llealy's entire responsibility and record of over a third of a century for honorable dealing. Write today so as to avoid disappointment. Hold On. Don't let go. If you have a slight hold, take a firmer one, and if you tire hold on until you are rested. Never let go. If you are in the right, stand up to it even if you have to stand alone, and make it a very lively racket if any one attempts to put you down or put you aside. Grit is always winner. It has chosen for its motto ''Never say die." If things don't come to pass, bring them to pass; if things march too slowly, tighten your grip and make them tread faster. If they are in a good humor? you wear a frown; if they lrown, then you laugh. There is no such thing as defeat for a persistent spirit, which has the right as an inspiration. You will often find that the moment of despair is apt to be the dawn of day- Hut don't repine; don't complain; don't ask favors; but push; persist, move on; straight forward, and you will soon stand on a sure and firm footing. Hold On! A New Industry. Plymouth is to have a foundry. Isaac Anderson will move his plant here from Uourbon, and has associated with him John Langdon a former resident of Plymouth. The foundry will be located west of the Pennsylvania tracks, the first load of lumber for the building be ing hauled their yesterday. Although this business will be com menced on a moderate scale, its loca tion here is a good thing for this city, and we hope to see this new enterprise grow to large proportions and good success. The Charity Ball. The charity ball at the Opera House on New Year's Eve was well attended, some thirty-live couples being present. Hansens Orchestra furnished the music w hich was well selected and finely ren dered. W. W. Hill served a sumptuous sup per, to which nearly all the dancers sat down. This charity ball will long be remembered as one of the most pleasant events of the year. Female Piety. Some of we lords of creation are not apt to justly appreciate the troubles and trials of our wives, who are left at home all day to look after the household affairs and duties. It is tho little vexa tions of every day life, which produce the wear and tear of the system and nerves. The busy house wife hears the door bell ring. She washes the dough from her hands, pulls down her sleeves, removes an old calico apron, takes a hasty look in the mirror, and goes to the door to lind a patent medicine dodger on the tloor. Yet nine out of ten of these patient women go through such experiences day after day and make no Installation cf Oftcers. On Tuesday evening .lan. 1. 1Y.5. the following named iiieers of Miles II. Tibbits IJelief Corps were installed by P. S. Houghton: Pattie II. Armstrong, Pres.; Elizabeth j onsler, S. V. P.; Cas sie Engle. .1. Y. P.; Mary Wiho Secry.; Mamie Kleinschmidt. Treas.; Kmma Force, Chaplin: Nelli Force. Conductor; Louisa Uottsett, Guard. After the in stallation icfreshments were served to over one hundred invited guests, which was followed with speeches, recitations and music. The president Mis Hattie 1. Armstrong announced that the clock had tolled the h"iir oft, requested that all present should join in singing Amer ica; then followed the benediction by friend Landis. In leaving the hall it was the opinion of all that the grandest corps on earth were the corps of noble pa'ro.ie women of America who Mere willing at all time to lend their aid for the advancement of all laudable objects. Death of Jar. Moore. On Saturday evening last Jas. Moore died at his residence in this city, at the age of 55 years. He had resided in Plymouth for many years, and for the past twenty years had been an active member of the Plymouth lire department, during which time he held the position of chief for over two years.
