Bert Beerbower has accepted the offer made him by the hotel in South Bend, and left to take his new position this week. It is said that the Ft. Wayne Journal has twenty-two libel suits on its hands. That paper must be doiug a rushing business. February 21st, 22d and 23d, occurs the farmers institute, in Goshen, Elkhart county. An elaborate program has been prepared.

The Soldier's Colonization company will hold a meeting at the Drake school house, eight miles east of Plymouth, Tuesday night. Go to J. V.

Their line of crape tissue paper is of the latest designs and colors. Mrs. Sullivan, mother of J. J. Sullivan, was taken suddenly ill Tuesday night last. At the present time she is reported much improved. The prohibitionists of Kosciusko county, met Feb. 14, to reorganize. This being St. Valentine day, good results are liable to follow. The "Tansil Punch" cigar has a great reputation, and holds its own against all comers. They can be found at the People's Drug Store. Miss Jennie Fisher, of Argos, has been spending several pleasant days the past week with her old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hughes.

The People's drug store in connection with their excellent line of tissue paper, have a large line of wire shades, ready for use. Give them a call when in need of this line of goods. Mr. Price, of Maryville, revenue col lector of this district, was in our city Tuesday, adjusting the revenue loss with J. A. Anderson. He made this of fice a very pleasant call. Messrs. IlardenbrooK and Liebold, of "XValkerton, were Plymouth visitors Tuesday evening. They came to see the glove contest. Mr. Liebold is an em ployee of the Walkerton Independent.

Between fifteen and seventeen hun dred valentines were handled at our postoilice yesterday. This, outside of the regular mail matter did not even show an increase of work, to an ob server. Wm.

Harvey, author of "Coin's Financial School," was a pleasant caller at this oflice Saturday last. He also transacted business here connected with the Plymouth Wagon Co. We should all be interested in our country's financial condition. To be competent to judge upon this matter, and to vote intelligently, you should read "Coin's Financial School." It is for sale at this oflice for 30 cents. It is the duty of every public spirited citizen to help turn every wheel which will move a cog in the machinery of progress. But it is as much a duty to try and put a brake on every project which is likely to damage the city. A physician has recently said, that a great many cases of hacking coughs and spitting of blood resulted, not from tho approach of consumption, as believed, but from chewing and swallowing mi- nulo pieces of wooden tooth picks. ! The members of tho St. Thomas Guild, who are always on the alert for something that will please and entertain their host of friends, have arranged for a unique entertainment at the Rectory 1 this evening. The invitations given out were neat and to the point, and designat ed m befitting language their mission. It is expected that the recipients be pres ent, and as far as enjoying a delightful evening that is an assured fact. At Valpo the prosecuting attorney is after those fellows who have their horses tied to hitching racks during the cold weather and at unseemly hours. One man last week was fined Sl'J and costs. This move in that city has a tendency to create the proper respect for dumb animals. W. E. Peterson and his daughter Gertrude, will sing a duet at the Sun day school convention at the Presby terian church next Monday evening. Miss Gertrude although only thirteen years cf age is considered a very fine ocahst. Frank Nicholay has refitted his har bor shop in quick order. He has now one of the best appointed shops, neatly carpeted, and all the necessary fixtures for comfort and promptness of work. His old friends and new ones as well are desired to give him a call. The Lake Shore road has issued an order that it will not take for transport ation corpses of persons that have died of contagious diseases, nor to take for shipment the body of any persons less than twenty years of age where the physician's certificate is for heart fail ure only. An exchange says women who work over gasoline stoves should know that an ounce of alum in the rinsing water will render anything rinsed in it almost uninllamable. If the apron and dresses are rinsed in alum water and then ironed as usual the danger of their catching fire while at work over the stove is much lessened. We have received this week a copy of the regular session of the fifty-ninth general assembly of Indiana, giving in details the senate calander of all bills and joint resolutions that are pending before that body. We are under obli gations to R. B. Oglesbee, principal sec retary of the senate, for this favor. J. K. Houghton and Harry Corbin have been to Indianapolis this week laying in a new supply of law books. While their loss through the fire was considerable the boys show their pluck and courage by once more prepairing to tackle the stern realities of life. We predict for them unbounded success. W. J. Rankins, the newly elected county treasurer, accompanied by his wife, departed Thursday afternoon via. the Vandalia line for an extended trip taking in such points as St. Louis, Los ngelos and San Francisco, Cal. They will remain several week, returning home by the way of Salt Lake City, Utah. A "pink tea" party was given by Mrs. Geo. W. Marble, one day last week to a number of their little daughter Georg ie's friends. The event took place at the Marble residence and was in honor of the fifth birthday of Miss Georgie. The time was spent very pleasantly, the program consisting of recitations, songs, music, dancing and laughter. This month will be marked by the second triennial session of the National Council of Women, which opens in Washington on ihe 17th, continuing two weeks. The council embraces eighteen separate organizations and represents a constituency of more than 000,000. The convention will be fraught with interest to every woman in the United States. The longest distance a letter can be carried within the limits of the United States, is from Key West, Fla., to Ona- laska, an island situated west of Alaska territory, a distance of 0,721 miles, and all for two cents! It is said there is a man in Kendall county so economical that he went to Key West and sent a letter to Onalaska, in order to get his money's worth. The dedication of the new United Brethern in Christ church will take place Feb. 21, 1803. Bishop J. Weaver D. D., of Dayton, Ohio, will conduct the dedicatory services. The preaching service will begin at 10:30 o'clock. The services will be of unusual interest. The general public is cordially invited to come and help the worthy enterprise with their presence and otherwise. The Walkerton Independent informs its readers that John Baugher is con templating moving his saw mill to that place, and that he is figuring on the ad visability of purchasing a large track of timber near there. Of course we do not know whether this will prove true, but if it does, Walkerton will get for a citi zen, a wideawake, hustling, progressive business man. The Monticello Press has changed hands, W. J. IIulT now being its editor and publisher. The outgoing publishers Reynolds & Botts, have made tho Press a very creditable sheet, but tho new edi tor being an old newspaper man prom ises some important changes in the near future. We are glad to welcome Broth er IIulT back in the troublesome path of journalism. We had the pleasure of seeing the de signs of a beautiful modern house that will be erected by Jas. II. Brink on his property east of Mayor Swindell's resi dence on the south side. The plans are for a two story and attic structure, of the latest modern designs. It will be complete in every detail, with steam heat throughout. The cost of this hand some residence will be about 83,500, and the work will be commenced as soon as the weather is fit. We are informed that this residence of Mr. Brink's is but one of the many costly structures that will be erected in Plymouth this coming season, and it will not be long ere Plym outh will be the metropolitan of our pro pressive state. The Mirror, of Bourbon, gives its readers a pointer last week, in regard to the prospects of that place being the lo cation in a short time of a manufactur ing establishment that will employ sev eral hundred hands. Editor Mattingly informs the people of that vicinity that it is a hard matter io keep such a grat bananza locked up within his breast, but is doing it all right. No book on the financial issue of the United States, has been received with such favor as "Coin's Financial School." Its arguments are irreputable, and it presents them so clearly that an unpreju diced mind can easily realize the truth fulness of the assertions made. The Independent has them for sale, and will send it post paid to all parts of the United States on receipt of 30 cents. Mr. Henry Schulthiess, our popular butcher, of LaPorte street, without inti mating to his numerous friends his in tentions, went to South Bend Saturday last, and ere the sun had set Sunday had become a full lledged benedict. He was married to Miss Minnie Bos worth, a young lady well known and highly es teemed in this city. The newly married couple returned to Plymouth Monday, and have been Utterly overwhelmed with congratulations. What has become of the old-fashioned man who used to refuse to "lift" a news paper from the postoilice? Kansas Chief, We remember him well. In the old days he would stand close up to the hand pressman, occasionally asking the ques tion, "When will you come to my pa- . -V- 4 1 - I ' per.- murinem Jiiuianmn. The last named individual is not yet out of date. Nappanee News. Well, we should say not. We bought a load of elm wood of him several days ago. Mr. Wm. W. Jones, met with a very painful accident Thursday last at Thayer & Son's elevator. In passing from one of the outside doors to the oflice, he walked into one of the wheat hoppers, striking his left side against the edge of the hopper. The fall resulted in the breaking of a rib, which has been quite painful. Notwithstanding his injury Mr. Jones continues to be around doing his regular work. This is what Peter Cooper, who died worth millions, said of newspaper ad vertising: "In all towns where a news paper is published every man should advertise in it, if nothing more than a card stating his name and the business he is engaged in. It does not only pay to advertise but lets the people at a dis tance know that the town in which you reside is a prosperous community of business men. Never pull down your sign while you expect to do business. It has been said, a conversation took place between two old, respected resi dents of Plymouth a short time ago in which the predominating idea was, that no man coming into the town a stranger, was capable of giving advice m regards as to what was the best policy to follow in the way of improvements. That in their forty odd years of residence in the county they were better qualified to ad vise the people in regard to these im portant points. Maybe you are right gentlemen, but we don't think so, and we know whereof we speak. As requested by Mr. Silver, the coun cil attended in a body the test of the lit tle tire extinguisher he is agent for, Tuesday evening in front of Ketcham & Wilson's store on Michigan street. The test proved entirely satisfactory to those present, and no doubt at the next meeting of the board a few of them will be purchased. There is not the slightest doubt that this extinguisher is the best thing on the market, and a fire before getting under headway is soon extinguished by this machine. In last week's issue of the Michigan City Xews, a short time before going to press, it became reported, that according to appearances near the ferry boat some one had fallen, or had been thrown into the river. All kinds of rumors flew thick and fast, and thoughts of murder, predominated. At the time prepar ations were being contemplated to drag the bottom, but was abondoned. Since that time the News has discovered a man had fallen into the water at that point, but had saved the coroner a job by crawling out. Do not fear of offending us by giving us items of news. We want it all, and desire to mention everybody little or big, who are visiting with friends in our city, or are visiting in other places. It is just such items of news that makes a home paper interesting. We are a great many times mortified by learning, when to late, that we have given an item of news wrong. But if the parties interested would have given us the item, such er rors would not have happened. So re member us in the future, and receive our heartfelt thanks. Success depends entirely on resolu tions, but only proper resolutions pro duce success; therefore resolve to do all that your mind or body, or both is cap able of doing; carry out your resolve and the thing is done. As you grow stronger in mind and body, make your resolves in proportion to your etrength, carry them out and your life will be a grand success. Some people waste mon ey because they resolve to do more than they are capable of carrying out. Such resolutions fail of success. Wc all see these failures constantly occurring in our midst; we can not rectify them as much as we might wish to, but let it teach us a lesson, to base our resolutions on our ability to do.and then do it, for we all want success. The project entered into by Hiperion lodge for the establishment of a National Home, spoken of last week, begins to assume tangable form. Although up to this time, few letters have been for warded and the movement fairly launch ed, yet man- letters have been received to date. Words of encouragement have been received from different states in regard to the enterprise. It is a good cause and will meet with success. We will keep our readers and those interest ed in this efl'ort posted from week to week. A point to be observed by knights here, is, when sending out letters, let them be as far removed from Plymouth as possible. Several have received more than one already. And now Michigan City is receiving her share of the green goods circulars. For several years past this same scheme, with the same circular, purporting to be cut from a newspaper, has been doing the same kind of business. And yet these fellows are to sharp to be caught, and there is not the slightest doubt they catch "suckers" quite frequently. Yet the man who receive such a communi cation and acts upon the advice given by these smooth rascals, deserves to be defrauded, for if he answers the letter, and meets them which is one of the agreements, he does it believing he will receive something by which he will be enabled to defraud the government to his advantage. But not so. They may show him their specimens, but when he unpacks his ill-gotten gains, a goodly supply of saw dust is found. A gentleman who has probably been duped by a 'traveling merchant" writes: If our local merchants or grocers would let the people know about the prices of their goods through printer's ink as the traveling grocers and the for eign merchants do by flooding the country with price lists, catalogues, etc., there would not be so many duped farm ers or complaining merchants. The ad vertiser who put their goods before the people and keep them there are the ones who will sell their goods. They may say, when too late, "1 would have duplicat ed that bill of goods," but they should have let the farmer who sent away and bought advertised goods of a foreign merchant know of it before he bought. That's the business of it. It is little use for the iocal editor to waste his lungs and sprain his spine in trying to boom a town when the citizens all stand around with their hands in their pockets and indifferently wait for something to turn up, says an exchange. If the capitalists or business men do not put their shoulder to the wheel and do a little boosting it is useless for the editor to try to boom things. He can write "boom" articles till he gets baldheaded, but if the citizens themselves do not take hold and push, the town will for ever stick in the mud. Of what use is it for the local paper to suggest im provement and new enterprises if the suggestions are never acted upon. One man can't boom a town. It requires the concerted action of all citizens. When one man shoulders a town and at tempts to carry it there are always a lot of cranky kickers ready to jump on top of the load. Unity of action is what is needed. Ilion. Wesley Freeland is prostrated with la grippe at present. Mrs. Washington Horn was taken vio lently sick while attending church last Sunday evening. Death seemed near, but she is improving at present. William Morical received a telegram Saturday evening informing him of the death of his daughter, Viola. The be reaved family have our sympathy. Our section men were ordered out last Thursday night at 'midnight to re patr track near Argos. Boys we do not envy such a call. Revival meeting at the Union church conducted by Revs. Roupe and Jordan. No assessions to the church as yet, but in every otuer way the meeting is a suc cess.
