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.

Memorial on the Death of Arthur
D. Senour.

PLYMOUTH tent, no. 27, k. o. t. m.
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, )

from car midst, our dearly beloved and
highly respected brother, Arthur 1).
Senour, and
Whereas, By his untimely death,
his family has lost an affectionate hus
band and father, the community an
honest and upright citizen, and Iliper

was a constant exercise of the highest
and noblest principles of our order.
Therefore, be it
Resolved, That while we deeply feel
the loss of our estimable and worthy
brother, long shall continue in our
midst the silent influence of his upright
and exemplary life, and while we can
not comprehend the dispensation of
Providence that has called from us our
brother in the noon-tide of his usefull
ness, we do most humbly submit to Di
vine decree.
Resolved, That we, the members of
Iliperion Lodge do hereby extend to
the atllicted family and sorrowing
friends of our beloved brother our sin

that the sweet consolation of Divine
grace may sustain them in their sad be
reavement. Resolved, That we set aside a me

our brother's memory with these resolu

these resolutions, and that a copy of
them be furnished the family of the de

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.

Burbee's Farm Annual for 1895.
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.
A Thrilling Story of the Period in
Five Chapters.
"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."
"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.
"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."
"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
"My boy,"' said the squire, "none of
them will call you a coward now. James
my son. shake hands with a true hero."
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. And even Rill Jones, the
school bully, realizes that one can be
brave without being a brute.

L. P. Rrock, Ionia. Mich.: "Every

John A. Duncan. Kansas City, Mo.:
"Coin's Financial School" is doing
