In an article for the February Cosmopolitan, he dis cusses the situation and does not mince matters in saying what China must do in this emergency. Two other noted foreign authors contribute interesting articles to this number. Rosita Mauri, the famous Parisian danseuse, gives the history of the ballet, and Emile Ollivier tells the story of the fall of Louis Phil ippe. From every part of the world, drawings and photographs have been obtained of the instruments used to tor ture poor humanity, and appear as illus trations for a clever article, by Julian Hawthorne, entitled, "Salvation via the Rack." Mrs. Reginald de Koven, Ana tole France, W. Clark Russell, Albion W. Tourgee, and William Dean Howells are among the story tellers for the Feb ruary number of The Cosmopolitan. Obituary. Hon. John Dempster Thayer, state senator, who died at his home in War saw, Monday morning, Jan. 28, 185, re sulting from a second stroke of para lysis, while in the performance of his senatorial duties, was the son of Rev. Geo. II. Thayer and Hannah Gnflin Thayer. He was born at Euclid, Onon doga county, X. Y., May 21,1840. He moved with his parents to Peru, Ind., in 1847, where he attended school under the tuition of his father. In 18 lil he moved with the family to Marshall county, near Bourbon, and worked on the farm during the summer, and taught school during the winter. He then came to Plymouth and lived with and worked for his brother, Henry J. Thayer for a year, lie then attended the University of Notre Dame, South Btiid. In 18) he went to Green Castle where he attended Asbury University, lie had excellent opportunities for storing his mind with valuable in formation and improved them to the fullest extent. On June 27 lbOl, he was united in marriage with Miss Sarah Erwin, of Bourbon, and to them were born four children, three daughters and one son, Mrs. Mattie Henda, of Anderson, Miss Jessie, Miss Matie and Mr. Henry 1). Thayer, of Warsaw. Mr Thayer moved with his young family to Warsaw in the year 18C4, where he has continued in business, and raised his family up to the time of his death. lie always took great interest in the growth and welfare of the city he chose for his home, and at one time served as a member of the board of ed ucation, lie was interested in and be came a member, of various social and charitable societies of the city, such as the Masonic fraternity, Odd Fellows, etc., and he became a presiding otiicer in each. In 1872 and again in 1S78 he was elect ed by his fellow citizens to the lower house of the legislature of the state of Indiana and made a useful and honor able representative. In l'.t2, without sonciiation on his parr, he was unani mously nominated by his political party as state senator for Kosciusko and Wa bash counties, and elected to li 2 1 the honorable and distinguished position. While making his last address of the campaign, he was suddenly stricken down by a paralytic stroke and was un able to stand or utter another word. For several weeks his friends dispaired of his recovery, but with faithful at tendance of physicians and nursing he recovered so far as to attend the session of the senate, but not able to do the work, or carry out the plans he so much desired to do. During the last two years he so far partially recovered, that he felt he would again try and till his position and was appointed chairman of one of the most important committees, and also on others. In endeavoring to serve his friends ana perform his duties, the strain on his nervous system was so great that he was again stricken down almost unaware by his nearest political friend, and he was brought home to die, as a result of his earnest endeavor to serve his constituents. From the time he left the capital city he was never conscious more than for a moment. Thus has been cut down an industrious legislator and useful citizen. It is well known that Mr. Thayer was a devoted friend to all those whose cause he espoused, and an enemy of no man who loved the right. He was recog nized as a good public speaker and his voice was always raised in the cause and betterment of humanity.

So owing to the numerous remedies of fered we have decided to give our read ers an insight into some of the ideas ad vanced by those who are prepairing the way to solve the important problem. Geo. Y. Wells, of Chicago, an enthusi ast on the single tax theory, gives a num ber of good pointers, the principal one, is to make the tramp work. He also claims, that the honest men of yester day, out of employment, finds the sweet ! crust of charity more preferable to a James M. Clayton, of Chicago, bo-J day's work of honest toil. Also "that it lieves he has got the whole business j is not the duty of society to furnish food down pat. He says this country is pro- j and clothing, and shelter, but to pass such laws that every human being shall have equal access to natures oppor tunities; and only this is the solution. ducing tramps through the workings cf the democratic party. That the party now in power legislate against the work ing men, and until the masses of the toiling millions learn that high protec tion is what this country needs, so long ! And last but not least, upon this great problem, comes our friend John W. will we have a large surplus of this kind j ijailgher to thc froIit with an illtm.st; ing article in regard to this gigantic question. John does not minci" matters of people. The higher the tariff tlu better for the American workingman. Entertainment. The members of the U. 13. church are making extensive arrangements io give a fine 6upper at their new church on South Michigan street. The time set for this event, is on Wednesday evening Feb. 6th. There will be a musical pro gram in connection with this entertain ment, which will be of an exceedingly interesting Lature. A substantial sup per will be given for twenty-five cents, and oysters served in any style desired. The proceeds are to be used in purchas ing furniture for the church, and any one interested in the good work should attend and contribute their mite in this worthy cause. Death of Anderson G. Lewis. Word has been received here that An derson G. Lewis, a former resident of Plymouth, and a brother of Eugene Lewis, died at his home in Senica, New York, last Tuesday. Mr. Lewis resid ed in this county, on the banks of Pretty Lake years ago, and was only known by the old settlers who resided here up to and previous to 1858. Mr. Lewis at his death, lacked one day ot being 52 years of age. lie also thinks it would be good policy in rt),ard t his .,illio!l" on t!.is il;1.)()lt for the democratic parly lo taU care ot j nt Slllit,.. i,t ce, ,it v-,t r. this class of people. ! and says, the icpublican party caused" j the whole "di'g-goned" trouble. He says O. D. Fellows, of Wheatn, Illinois, j that passage of script ure: "Whatsoever has his linger upon the exact cause of j 3"e -'w, that shall ye also reap," came to all this trouble, and we are constrained J his mind in thunder tines. "Thirty to say, he gives a forcible argument. He i yars of infamous criminal legislation says the saloon "is the propagating j built up more than a war tarilf in time place, the breeding ground, the hot-bed I 01" peace." "If they had not of the tramp." Whi'e enjoying a lucra tive position, he will spend a few mo ments each evening in a saloon, where he hears it remarked that "working for a living is neither necessary nor credit able; that a man who can get along without work is better that the man who works for it." He will continue these associations until at last he will begin to think he is imposed upon by "the boss," and quit work. Then he comes to need money, he can get no work, people have lost confidence in him ; and presently he not only finds himself out of money and out of employment, but out of the saloon. And becomes a tramp. Lem. A. Wood, of Burlington, Kans., thinks the solution of this problem will never be reached until the populist party comes into power to enact laws, bene ficial for the country, give the people a sound currency, etc. Then factories will be opened and every man out of em ployment can secure good wages and live in a home of his own and everything will be "hunky dorey." Alice M. Cushman, of that beautiful suburban town Englewood, says: The extension of suffrage to women will en tirely do away with this bum element. Just how, 6he fails to make clear. But thinks if they were allowed to vote, they would not be corrupted, and thus would see that honest laws were passed. Arthur Wagstaff, of Evanston, 111., believes if we theorize upon the tramp question until dooms day, we will not succeed in obliterating the nuisance. "And until the world recognizes the Christian religion, the riddle will never be solved." From Hannibal, Mo., comes the true solution, who is known as "the tourist He is on the road, and is supposed to know something about it. Among other things 1 e gives as a knock out blow, is this assertion: "When the so-called Christian people of this country take a tumble to themselves and pay more attention to Christ's teachings and less to those little spasmodic efforts at charity and try to give every man a chance to make a liv ing for himself and family, then will the tramp nuisance be abated." The next one who had a sure recipe been stopped in their mad career, they would have turned this whole nation into a population of tramps shuttling from the castle of one baron where they hid been permitted to sleep, to the pal ace of another where they might hope for food." "That they could never have succeeded in making the working man any worse than by their "American plan." John in the last paragraph of his letter rips out the following: "And so the tramp is here. When the nation drifts back as it is surely drifting to that time when the differ ent elements of our body politics ar more equitably adjusted, then trampism will diminish; and it will finally disap pear, except in those cases where the disease was too deeply implanted for other eradication than that of death. And in time the grim reaper will re move even the last representative of that race which troubles us to-day. In the perfection of democratic times there will be no tramps." But still with all this waste of time and powder, there is no preceptible di minishing in tramps since Sunday last Argos Snaps. The entertainment given last Friday evening by the scholars of thejntermed iate department, was well attended. George Ripple, of Warsaw, made a short visit with friends in this vicinity the first of last week. Mr. Fred Drake, of Cincinnati, it back visiting friends here, also his par ents at Rochester. He returns next Sunday. The telephone line which T. Yanvac tor recently erected at this place has its headquarters at C. Z. Rowe's jewelry store. The baby of Frank Belviles died Sun day afternoon. Elias Davis made a short stay in Chi cago Sunday. The high school of this place gives a grand entertainment at Huffs opera house next Saturday night. The infant child of J. Bixler died Sunday from the grippe. It is presumed that a telephone ex change will soon be in order. Wm. Everly, of Plymouth, was is town Monday on business. Husey& Son have sold their dnif store back to Isaac Reed. A son was born to Mi. and Mrs. Hart man last Thursday. Mrs. Wm. Schoonover and sister, Tb ited in Plymouth Wednesday.
