A SPLENDID CORPS OF FIRST CLASS SALESMEN. Ker Hamlet of I lit- 1'niteri State to Ite Viitel in the Future ami a System l.atui-liel Tliat will Ciivethe Plymouth Works l'M'stitft Above all Others. The Plymouth Cycle Manufactur ing Co., has recently been arranging their work so as to materially increase its output for the coming year. When the company was lirst organ ized it was doing well in its own estimation as well as in the estimation of every one else when it made an aveiage of TOO bicycles a year; but during the present year, through the management of Mr. M. W. Simons, the output as stated will be largely in creased. The Plymouth Cycle Manufacturing Company will manufacture f,X bi cycles for the lb'.Mi trade, and already ! has a arge list of unsolicited applica tions for agencies from all parts ot the United states. This company manufactured ifjO bi cycles for the trade of lS'Jo. The fac tory is three years oldwitha better pros pect fur a profitable business than ever before. The cap icily of the factory has increased largely in two years. Friday four salesmen, who are all ex perienced men were siarted. The trav eling salesmen representing this m dustry are Marion Ulack, of Port Wayne, whose terntoiy lies along the Northern Pacific Kail way to the Pacific Coast; Mr. W. C. Dowdy, rf Coshen, Ind., to all points in Illinois, Iowa, Wis consin and Minnesota; W. II. W. Pel tier, of Fort Wayne, to Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennsee: and W. Daniels, ot this city, who goes to Pennsylvania, New York, and all Eastern " and New England States. Each man will cany three complete high grade bicycles, lb'.Ml models, to gether with a beautiful line of highly finished nickel plated patts showing the detailed mechanism. These sales- men are men oi experience ana ail say the samples are the mst perfect they ever saw. Two years ago the factory was only able to turn out seven bicycles a day, but now it produces forty, an in crease of thirty-three. Every depart ment has been strengthened by the au dition of new machinery and skilled mechanics. The entire mechanical department is in charge of Mr. (Jeorge Khngerman, of this city, who superseded M. D. Smal ley as supermtendant. Mr. Khngerman is a thorough mechanic and the results he has shown m organizing each depart ment testifies to Iiis executive ability. Mr. Kiingerman leiurned last Saturday morning from a trip to 2sevv York City and New Haven, Conn., in the interest of the factory. The product of this factory is largely shipped by express and it can readily be seen that the business of this con cern aids largely to increase the receipts of the two express companies represent ed in this city. Although this is, as we all know, a dull season in all business lines, and especially m the bicycle trade, the fact that this factory is shipping bicycles in small lots nearly every day testifies to the popularity of the Snialley wheel. One shipment was made last Friday of twelve machines to Charleston, S. C. The proprietors enjoy the distinc-ion of having numerous solicitations Iroin foreign countries for (heir goo is, bu as they have not been able to supply the demands in the United States, they have not taken up foreign tratle as yet, except io the extent of tilling some in dividual orders in France, Russia, Cer many, England and Australia. Reports received from these sales have been highly satisfactory, not only as to fin ish but as to durability. In this connection we might say that the Plymouth Cycle Manufacturing com pany has received many flattering and unsolicited testimonials regarding the stanchness and easy running qualities of its wheels. Space will not permit detailed mention of tests, but we might cite Mr. Chas. Knudson's celebrated rides from the door of the factory to the City of Mexico, much of the way on railioad tracks, through swamps, deep sands and over rocky and uneven roads Without a single accident Also the much talked of feat feat of (Jeo. Wolf, wh started from the Auditorium Hotel in Chicago and rode to New York City, a distance of U00 odd miles, materially reducing the best time ever.made o i this trip. This was accomplished without damage to the wheel in the slighest particular and Mr. Wolf found a ready purchaser In New York City at a considerable ad vance over the retail price of $100.00. Many other testimonials could bo cited with reference to severe tests given to the bicycles where tripa from 1,000 to 3,000 miles have been made in quick time and without accident oi any kind which goes to prove the su p rior excellence of the goods manuf actured by this concern. And this is i especially notable in view of the fact j that the bicycles submitted to the hard est tests have been selected, at random from stock all ready manufactured and were not especially made for the I time, o for the occasion, j There will be three kinds of finish j furnished to patrons the coming year; j these will be in Maroon enamel, I black enamel and the justly cele ! brated Aluminum finish which is the ! invention of Mr. (Jeo. (Jrass, who lias chaigeof the Enameling department of the concern. The size of the tubemg used will be la inches in the diamond, 14 in the head and ;3 and ;lt' inches in the upper and lower rear forks. A superior style of changeable sprockets will be used enabling wheelmen to have three kinds of gearing if they choose. Three heights id" frames will be made which will enable customers to obtainjeadily any particular height desired. The narrowest tread on the market will be produced also. The above features, together with the adjustable handle bar which was m- j venetd by Mr. Klinganian coupled with high grade workmanship and the use of the very best of material to be obtained will produce in the bicycles built by this company for both ladies and gentlemen the highest uniform grade with few equals and nr. superiors '.;n the market We should add that tandem bicycles for both ladies and gentlemen will be produced by the coming season. Men tion should also be made of t lie Matter ing success during the past year ot rac ing wheels oi this company's production, entries of which were made in four hundred racing events, three hundred and seventeen of which were taken by the Smalley, giving it state champion-. ships 1 lo'.g distance lecordsin many cases. Nine distinct models w ill be produced in lh'.M.. Notable among them will be the finest ladies bicycle ever produced in the United States which will be culled the "Pearl Queen.' The choiest positions have been as signed to . he Plymouth Uicycle Manu facturing Co., at the New York and Chicago cycle shows, whicn occur in January W. Tie Chicago date being January 4th to llth. It will be well worth the whil'3 of people to see the display this home institution will make at this show. Mr. M. W. Simons, the president of the company is well known in this city and vicinity and by his energy and push has placed this factory among the lirst of the land, with the quality of its pro duct unexcelled in the world. Warning No :t. A case of cigarette poisoning, which will be attended with fatal results with in the next twenty-four hours, is lepor tel fjjoni Converse. The victim is Pearl Pence, the 17 year old son of John Pence, and one of the brightest young men in the town. Jle began smoking cigarettes four or five years ago. and the habit grew upon him until lie be came a slave to it. His health bjgan to fail, and he stopped using the weed, but his system had become so saturated with the nicotine poison that lie was be yond the reach of medical aid, and yes teiday the physicians said that life could be prolohgeil for oniy a short time.- Ninth Uend Time. Went Crazy. It is said that David E. Pearson, of Laporte, was so affected.by the earth quake of last month, as to have lost his mind, lie beleiveii at that time, that (Jabriei was about to blow his horn, and it played upon his mind to such an ex tent that he is now hopelessly insane.

As we contemplate with considerable satisfaction the position our city now occupies with the remainder of the world, it seems that the time for active movement all along the line id' commer cial progress should be pushed with vigor. It appears since the announce ment of the position that Plymouth is now entitled to on the map of postal service, she has in .Teased, not only in size but has a greater responsibility upon her shoul"is for her future wel fare. There should never be no look ing backward, hut with eyes to the front, taking advantage of the benefits that have fell like showers of blessings upon a favored community. Plymouth to-day stands head and shoulders above any city of equal popu lation upon the (J lobe. Her natural re sources are abundant for every need aud with her net-work of railroads reaching out in every direction; giving easy access to east, west, north or south markets, is surely one of the prominent features of her ability to oiler .anu- lacturing enterprises a lucrative held for sustenance. It has been truly said that "the con stant dropping of water, will wear away the largest stone." That is the kind of spirit that is needed to place a city in a position she is deserving to occupy in the commercial world. Nocomniunitv ever succeeded in moving along pro - gressive lines without utilizing the ad vantages she fortunately possesses. In the cutagory of" commercial progress there are two predominating features that lends prestige to any community. Agricultural and manufacturing. With us the first we have, and m all re spects equals any other locality; in the second, we have some of t lie best manufacturing interests located among us and can oe compared favorably with any other city in the state of Indiana. Ik'.t they are not suflicient. We need others, and they are to be secured if the proper effort is put forth. The lNin:ri:Dr.T since its location at Plymouth has ever held to the text of advancement along this line', and will always be founel ready to use its columns for the upbuilding of home in dustries. The Haulers Koliun. On Monday October 28th Messrs. Nelson McLaughlin, Joseph Vanvac tor, W. W. Wright, Wm. Zehner, David Zehner, and Dr. Uurkett of this city and vicinity, accompanied by C. II. Uurkett, of Evanslon 111., left for Penbine Wis., on a hunting expedition which the gentlemen had looked forward to with the thought of a few weeks enjoyment anel better health. After a ride of several hours they arrived at their destination, and took up their abode with a half breed who gave then: the best quarters possible; and from what we can learn the fun began there at their landlord's expense and abode. Of course after so long a ride they all must have been very hungry and when they sat down to the table to eat, we can inmiagine how they all looked dressed in true Davy Crockett style. The victuals or grub as you might say was not of the best but they all ate it, with some trouble. Of course it is a little hard to get used to some peoples way ot cooking but they gained llesh, especially Dr. Uurkett who says he is six or seven pounds the better of the half breed. We might say here that Mr. McLaughlin look sick while there only a few elays and had to come home, lint with all the little mishaps ami the loss of one of the company they report a very pleasant time and the remain ing six returned with a "deer" a piece, While hunting in the vicinity of Pen bine there were in the neighborhood of one hundred sportsmen hunting and camping. During their three weeks stay three men were accidently shot one by a trap gun which was set for deer and the other two were shot by hunters. Deers were quite plenty Lut hard to get, and required a great deal of labor and ambition to capture them. According to the rail road statistics there are about four thousand hunters in the state of Wisconsin at bresent. At Penbine while tha hunting party were waiting for the train to bring them home some parties tried to steal a couple of the deer which were shot by our hunters and the act was dis covered by Dr. Uurkett. W. W. Wright was the most successful of our hunt ers who killed three of the deer From the time of their departure at Penbine until they reached home last Saturday evening they were just thirty-six- hours on the road. Several of the deer were placed on sale at a couple of the butcher shops here. The ItiiufV-e Murder. The Columbia City Post, brings to light some very interesting evidence re gardiiigthe Dunfee postoilice, the post master of whL-h, was cruely murdered some several weeks ago. It has un earthed a paper that shows during the month of April, charges were preferred against Postmaster Singer, charging him as being unfit to handle that post office properly. While the Post shows a disposition to be very conservative re garding the matter, it believes in delv ing to the bottom of the affair. The young man wh preferred einiges against Postmaster .linger is but 2i years id' age, and the Pot de clares appearances go to show that the latter was dictated to by some one else snd the fellow who did the writing was only used as a cat's paw m "raking the chestnuts out of the lire." While this is given out for what it is worth, it miht be proper N Mate that A. M. Ihi. e, the correspondent to the postoihce department at Washington, i the same person that was troubled with a horrible night mare the night of the brutal murder. He is reported as saing that in this d:e:im h; "beheld young Vetter in the act of biaining the ,(or o!,i lliau witIl tlie ,nu.deroiisclub." meiauer was ;ne oi tnose who was arrested on suspicion. '-Murder will out," and ho doubt tne brutes that , robbed Mr. Singe: covered. of his life will be dis- ii .ii i. From Wednesday's Daily. This morning about ::!) W J. 1 Holmes who is working for Koihen- burger u IbMivu kt r met with a serious accident which might have proved fatal, Mr. Holmes was busy sleeping out the office and straightening things up for the day. A meat honk was hanging under some aprons on the east, wail and not knowing this he stooped over, in a hurry to pick up a coal oil can which was sitting just under the hook, and in so doing struck his head on the hook which entered his head just above the left eye'. A bd cut was the result and if the hook entered a little farther death would have been the result. He was immediately taken to ihe oilice of Dr. Knot, wh ) dressed the wound. u I inprov erneut. James DeLoney's new residence at the corner of Washington and Plum streets is Hearing completion and when eione lie will occupy it himself. The cottage when finished will be a model building o the latest designs. It will be quite an improvement to that part of the city. The adjoining new resi lience belongs to Dr. Durr and will be an equal addition as well. The new ad dition properly belongs to Logan broth ers. These lots for a long time were used as a null yard, and a part of the old mill structure still stands, but will bo moveel away in a few days when the lots will be put on the market. Henry Uurns, of Chicago, will occupy Mr. De Loneys' residence on West (larro street as soon as vacated hv the latter. Howard ii l.oOii Iii- Ii rip. The once woild renowned shot, Cap tain Uogardus, who was with Ueve ridge's Wild West Show when it ap peared in Pekin, has lost his grip and is fast becoming a sear ami y ellow leaf. In the coldest at Lincoln, III., for the srlUO gold medal, Fred Cilbert, of .Spirit Lake Jowa, was thy successful man. He made eighteen straight. Dogardus and --Tramp"' Irwin were in the shoett, but each miss -d a target. Williams lost two. (Jilbert is a phenominal shot, making runs of forty and fifty straight targets with eue. The gold badge, that he has just won at Lincoln must be held against all comers for two years, shooting every two months, if challenged. Pekin Times. A i rr. I. Monday afternoon Chas. A. Carson and Harry Anderson both farmeis were arrested by marshall Myers. The first for drunkeness, anil the latter for pro voke. Carson paid his line and drovo home while Anderson w as placed in jail, but this morning Carson drove back to town and after leaving his horse out in the cold for a long while he paid tho other man's fine anel both left town in a hurry. That Iistrit Meeting. The forth coming district meeting at Laporto of tho Knights of Pythias, seems to increase in interest every day.
