For some time past the press through out this section of the state have been publishing notices in regard to the glove contest that took place in the opera house last Tuesday night. The result was, that ere the story had made the round,becanie an o iU 1 1 a'prizj li We are here to announce the whole al legation untrue. The reports have, not only caused the mayor of our city to be severely criticised but the citizens of our community at large, for allowing such an exhibition of brutality. To put to rest any controversy that might arise in regard to our position, we wish it to be distinctly understood that we are opposed to prize lights in all form, but there are other people in this country who are American citizens, who do believe in them, and it is their priv ilege. Neither would the Indlt end en t give space in its columns to an nounce a prize light, and would use every means in our power to suppress such a bruital exhibition, Although we did not attend this glove contest, we have heard enough in re gard to the same from citizens who .vere there, to believe it was just as ad vertised. If two young fellows in our city should put on a pair of boxing gloves in one of our stores, which is fze quently done, and spar ten or fifteen minutes, comments detrimental to the sport would not be heard. Again, if we were compelled to witness a ten round glove contest or a game of foot ball similar to some we have withess, in which one player was crippled for life and another to-day occupies quar ters in an insane asylum, we would take the glove contest. It is not the brutality in a sparing match the intelligent and conscientous man object to, but the moral lesson so prominently brought forth, by the as sociations there assembled. Death of Arthur Glass. The greater portion of our citizens have recollections of Arthur Glass, who for some time was operator at the Van dalia depot, ?M will be sorry to hear of his demise, .d, as he was familiarly called, died Jan. 22d, 1SU0, at the Wil son Surgical Institute, at Indianapolis, Where he had went for treatment. The direct cause of his death was throat and pulmonory trouble, from which he had been aillicted for some years. Arthur Glass was born Nov. 12, ISM, at Carelton, Ind., and following the in clination of a desire to advance in this wcvld, went to school, applying himself diiligently to his studies, soon was pro ficient in all branches of a good school education. After leaving school he learned telegraphing, whose faint but important tick lie listened to in his line of duty, until sickness compelled him to abandon his profession, and finally listen to the tick of the -death watch.'' While residing at Greenville, 111., he was united in marriage to a Miss Ada Plant, Dec. 1, 1SS'. This union brought the loving parents two bright children a girl and boy, who are left with the wife to mourn the absence of a father. Mr. Glass was a man who won a host of friends where ever he was known, and his many old fiiends in Plymouth, will regret his early death. What Is An Ad. The life blood of modern business.

The committee to whom was referred the official announcement of the death of Sir Knight Arthur 1). Senour respect fully beg leave to report this memorial. Hackneyed phrases of condolence never yet have given comfort in the home of trouble and we are not going to try their effect now. Past Commander Senour was a man whom to know was to love. Courteous in his manner, refined and dignified in his deportment, his suavity and kind ness won the hearts and commanded the lespect of all who approached him. Although young in years when his earthly garment was laid in the grave we do not measure his worth in years a . a m ... . out in deeds which continue to live. His history as a K. O. T. M.. is writ ten in the journal of our Tent and his memory will be cherished by us all. He became a member of Plymouth Tent, No. 27, K. O. T. M. at its organi zation in the year 1880, and 'continu ously held a membership therein until his death, Feb. 5, IV.",. lie served one term as Record Keep er from which ollice he was elected as Sir Knight Commander, passing from that to the honorable position of Sir Knight Past Commander. He performed the various duties of his office to the credit of himself and satisfaction of the members of the tent. We should not mourn his departure for life's work with him was so well done but we do, andshoulddrop the tear of sympathy with his beloved wife and children over his grave. We ask that a copy of this memorial be forwarded to the family of Sir Knight Senour and that it be entered upon the journal of this Tent as a trib ute of respect for his memory. We also ask that a copy of the fore going be sent to the city papers, and al so to the Rourbon Mirror for publica tion. John C. Rutleu, ) C. 11. McLaughlin C . om. Fit an k Wood. ) In Mermorian.

Ckessnek, Committee. Wm. F. Young. The Glove Contest. For the past three weeks through the medium of hand bills and lithographs freely displayed, has been announced the ten round glove contest between Greenburg, of Peru, and Witsel of Grovertown. The match as announced took place at the opera house Tuesday night of this week. Refore the event of the evening took place, a four round contest between Walter Rutcher and Grant Harris, gave a few points. The contestants are half brothers. In the ten round contest when time was called and the opponents entered the ring, it was conceded by those who have an eye to this kind of pastime, that Greenburg as far as appearance, was conserned was the best man physi cally. We are informed that the ten rounds lasted forty minutes, and decided in favor of Greenburg, who it is said gave his opponent every opportunity to show his good points as a boxer. Sher iff Smith with two deputies, Marshal Meyers and night watchman Rennett, were present to interfere if anything like a prize fight took place, as had been reported was to be the case.

Always fresh and original, Rurpee's Farm Annual for 18UÖ, is even better than ever before. The cover is most ar tistic and beautiful; lithographed in ten colors, it shows on the front an attrac tive bouquet of the new sweet peas, now so fashionable, while on the rear is a bird's eye view of Fordhook Farm, where many of Rurpee's seeds are grown and where there were conducted the past season more than six thousand trials of vegetables and llowers grown from seed. This catalogue is really a complete book on seeds, as it contains 174 pages, besides several colored plates and special circulars. The illustrations, 400 in number, are all true to nature, being mostly engraved from photo graphs, while tho descriptions of both new and standard seeds are noteworthy for their accuracy. Messrs. W. Atlee Rurpee & Co. make the nominal charge of 10c. fur the Farm Annual, which is less than actual cost of publication, but will be pleased to mail a copy free to any of our readers who intend to pur chase seeds this spring. It contains much useful information which cannot be had in any other form, and we strongly recommend all who have oc casion to buy seeds to consult the cata logue of these well known Philadelphia seed growers. TRUE COURAGE. A Thrilling Story of the Period in Five Chapters. CHAPTER I. "Coward! Cowardly calf ! Cry-baby!" These were the shouts that greeted Willie Green, as he stood wiping the blood from his lip which had been cut from a blow given by James Reans, the rich 'squire's son. "Why don't you pitch in and lick him V" asked Rill Jones, the school bully. "You are bigger'n him!" "Eecause my mother told me never to fight," said Willie. "And, besides, did not the teacher tell us at Sabbath school that it was wicked, and that he who conquered himself was the greatest hero? I mean to be a hero." C1I APTEll II. "Did I not do right, mother?" asked Willie Green. "You did, my son," as she fondly wrapped two or three of his curls around her worn and wasted hand. "Resides, if you had given way to your temper the 'squire might have foreclosed the mort gage he holds on our little home and turned us out adrift on the cold, cold world. It is as much as I can do now to meet the 12 per cent, interest. They wept in each other's arms. i'HAPTEIl III. "Fire!" "The cry rang out on the still night air, arousing the sleeping villagers to action. The ollice of "Squire Reans was in llames. Strong men threw water on the blaz ing building with pitchers, pails, tubs or anything that came to hand. And still the llames arose. "My safe! My safe!" shrieked the 'squire. "There are 11, 010,000 worth of securities in it. Am I to be ruined ?" "No use, "squire," said one of the men. That there safe weighs a thousand pounds, and besides, it is red-hot." III APTEII IV. "Stand back! If the men will not act, let a coward try!" It was the voice of Willie Green. Willie Green, whom his thoughtless schoolmates had called a coward be cause he had the moral courage to ab stain from rude fisticuffs. He rushed through the crowd into the blazing building. In another moment he returned with the great red-hot safe in his arms and dropped it in a near-by cistern. The 'squire's fortune was saved. "My boy,"' said the squire, "none of them will call you a coward now. James my son. shake hands with a true hero." CHAPTER V. Willie Green works for the 'squire now. lie only has to work eighteen hours a day after school and gets .? a week. The 'squire has reduced the in terest on Mrs. Green's mortgage to 11 2' per cent.

Markson, Rig Rapids, Mich.: "1 have long been in darkness concerning j money, but have just read "Coin's Fi nancial School" and assure you of one more convert to free coinage."' J. M.Clark, Charlevoix, Mich.: -Coin's Financial School' is the 'age of reason on the financial question." W. W. Field, president First Nation al bank, Odebolt, Iowa: "1 have just read 'Coin's Financial School,' and 1 deem it the clearest and most common sense exposition of the monetary ques tion I have ever read. The book is timely and will be a great educator of the people. Remonetize silver and at the same time place a prohibitory tariff upon the foreign silver, and the wheels of industry will again turn and prosper ity smile upon the country." L. P. Rrock, Ionia. Mich.: "Every body is asking: What shall we do to be saved ? and the little book. "Coin's Financial School,' ably and admirably points the way. I wish it could be read by every farmer ami producer in Amer ica." O. P. Eversole, Ft. Wayne, Ind.: "I have just read with great interest 'Coin's Financial School, which is the best illustration of the subject I ever saw." Dr. Chas. A. Dittler, Jackson. Mich.: "I have just finished reading 'Coin's Fi nancial School,' ti e first copy to my knowledge, that has appeared in this part of the country. The book is im mense, and I help to spread the light." General Henry E. McCullough, Rock port, Texas.: "I have been studying the financial problem for several years and reading everything 1 could get on the subject, and I have learned more from 'Coin's Financial School," than I gathered from all other sources. I took it up and read it through like a girl would a love story, and am now study ing its teachings." 1). C. Dunn, Osmun, 111.: "I have read 'Coin's Financial School' with pro fit, and it is now going the rounds among my friends ami acquaintances. 1 am a full-iledged binu-tallist now: nearly every one here, regardless of party, is for bimetalisni. I am an old Union soldier and a farmer." H. M. Harden, Woonsocket, S. D.: 'Coin's Financial School" puts the the money question in a form to be un derstood by all. I am much pleased with it." John A. Duncan. Kansas City, Mo.: "Coin's Financial School" is doing more good for the cau-e of free silver a:id humanity than any work ever pub lished. The silver issue has been so thoroughly misrepresented that a state meid of this kind has long been needed. Allow me to congratulate the Inter Ocean for its good work." Joen M. Curnow, Vulcan, Mich.: "I have read 'Coin's Financial School, and urge every man to get one, as it should be reavl by every voter in the United States. Its arguments are beyond dis pute1." Edwin Revins, Leon, I ova.: "1 have leaned to the side of silver, but eiid not know but there might be something in the arguments of the gold monometa! lists. 'Coin' has dispelled that illusion. The lo 'ii who engineered the gigantic crime of 1S7Ü through congress ought to be treated as public enemies.
