FREE DELIVERY. PLYMOUTH ENTITLED TO A FREE DELIVERY OF MAIL. The Latest Report From the Postal De partment. Shows That Our City is Un title! to This Additional Distinction. While a great many of our people have not been aware of the advance ment made by the Queen Citv of Indi ana, still, a large number have noted with no small concern her rapid iraprov ments the past year, and take pleasure in pointing with pride to our rapidly developing territory. Plymouth to-day has arrived at that point, where her postoflice receipts for the past year entitles her to free deliv ery service. To more fully place this matter before our readers, we quote portion of an article taken from the Chicago Times-lerald of Saturday. It in part says: "A. "W. Macken, superintendent of the free delivery service of the postal department, announced to-day that the receipts for the fiscal year at the follow ing named postoflices had exceeded 10,000, thus making the ollice eligible for the free delivery service. Illinois, Batavia, I3elvidere, Dekalb, and Ke wanee; Iowa, Crinnell, Lamars, and Red Oak; Wisconsin, Kenosha, and Merrill; Indiana, Attica, Bloomington, Hammond, Plymouth, and Wabash." The superintendent follows up this statement with the announcement that it does not indicate that these otfices will all take advantage of a free deliv ery service, but it is their privilege to establish within a year if they feel so disposed, a free delivery service. This is surely a position, our citizens may well be proud of, and we will ven ture the assertion, that one year ago the thought that our city would grow to the proportions necessary to give her such a prestige, was little dreamed of. Of course there are reasons for this advance ment, and the material increase of postal service in our city is one of the actuating influences that has given us this modern improvment of postal service. In other words, the great man ufacturing industries in this, the Queen City, of our home state, has been the direct cause of our ascendency. There is no doubt in the minds of our prominent citizens that the enormous mail matter sent out and received every day by such institutions as the Indiana Novelty Works and the Bicycle Factory has bsen the important factors in the increased revenue in our postoflice department. It is not known as yet whether our postmaster, Mr. J. Jilson, under whose management this wonderful growth his taken place, will take advantage of this opportunity or not, but he will no doubt follow out the plan which he may think the best for the business interests of Plymouth. A Sad Spectacle. Several days agothe personal effects of the mother ol Charles g. Parnell, the late Irish leader, were sold at public auction at her home in New Jersey. All the things that were sold under the hammer to pay her doubts and satisfy her grasping, heartless creditors. In noting the occurrence the Kansas Chief makes the following comments: Are the people of New Jersey desti tute of hert and patriotism ? It has been asked, connot the friends of the Irish cause spare something from the vast sums raised for the Irish cause, to keep the mother of their greatest cham pion in comfort, in her old age? Why the friends of Ireland ? What are the people of the United States made of? Why are the Sons and Daughters of the Revolution, who make such a parade of their ancestry, and spend thousands of dollars commemorating events of the Revolution? Mrs. Parnell is an Ameri can, and the daughter of Commodore Stewart, once commander of Old Iron sides, and who took part in some of the naval victories that humbled England on the soas, m the war of 1812 ? Why turn the aged daughter of this man over to the tender mercies of the friends of Ireland? Where are the friends of America? Why permit this old lady to go the poor-house, and to weep oyer the niggardly prices paid at auction for priceless relics of her gallant father, and family heirlooms that have come down from latter days? Let the heathen wear their old clothes for an other season, and give her the money. Let some of the Revolutionary heroes go a year longer without monuments They will not mind it. DiMeitHes in Food. And now comes forth a physician to inform us that potatoes are unhealthy. We are also informed that milk con tains germ of tuberculosis, rice will swell up like dried apples and Johnny cake will cause heart-burn, mince pie has hobgobblins in it and beefsteak is liable to give a fellow the lumpy -jaw. If the scientific investigators keep on we will be afraid to eat oyster soup after awhile for fear the oysters might have had consumption. Ex. We have very little fear regarding oysters hairing consumption, for in Indiana they are generally proof against that disease. What we would fear is that the oyster might be contaminated with "salt rheum." ART FOR THE HOLIDAYS. llaiul Painted ami Decorated China in ariety and Quantity Previously l"n eiialetl in I Iii- t it y. The holiday stock of china, the ar rangement of which for display has just been completed by Mr. V. E. Leonard of "The Fair," is not only a credit to Mr.' Leonard but. as an indication of the taste and culture precedent to a demand for such goods, is a compli ment to Plymouth and her people. It is a stock that commands attention on its merits of quality, beauty and variety of artistic designs, probably the largest, best selected stock of china evir shown in this city. It includes a line of hand decorated toilet sets to sell from l.3 to 818.00. Fine banquet lamps are show with onyx tables in brass and new designs. In the hand decorated china some of the most delicate tracery in exquisitely beautiful designs is shown. There are gold, bronze and color decorations in almost endless variety in dinner sets tea sets, after dinner coffee setQcracker jars, sugar bowels, fancy cups and saucers, salts, peppers, celery dishes olive dishes, nickel trays, etc. China sets are shown in open stock from which may be purchased such pieces as the buyer may select witiiout the neces sity of buying an entire set, the advan tages of which are readily apparent. Lramps of all kinds in metal, china and glass are exhibited at prices rang mg trom zo cents to as many or more dollars. Many novelties, suitable for comparatively inexpensive paterns and without which no dining table is com plete are shown on the same artistic or der at prices that must make them tempting to all holiday shoppers. It is not too much to say that "The Fair" as at present arranged is certain ly one of the most attractive and taste fully decorated stores in northern Indi ana. It is a store that speaks well to strangers of the prosperity and general advancement of this city beyond and above the average in cities of this class and Mr. Leonard should be liberally en couragedto further develop his busi ness on similar lines. AN KNJOYABLE KVKNINK. A N umber of Our People Kiijoy a Pleas ant Time at the Culver Academy. Editoi; of the Independent: Rah! Rah! Rah! Au-bee-nau-bee Rah! Rah! Rah! In response to an invitation by II. II. Culver, of tin Culver Military Acad emy of Culver City, Ind., a merry crowd of young people boarded the south bound 2:io train Saturday noon for Culver City. At the depot we were met by a re ception committee who escorted us to a steamer, and we had soon crossed the water and were landed at the Academy grounds. After being shown over the inklings we were invited to witness the foot ball game between the Elkhart High School and the Academy teim The sides were very evenly matched, Culver gaining slightly until in the last half when an Elkharter succeeded in getting the ball, and midst the cheers and encouraging bugles' blasts made a most remarkable run to the goal. I t A. 1 J M A . nen me excitement oi the game had subsided we retired to the parlor and refreshed ourselves with excellent music. At 5 o'clock a most elegant supper was served, to which all did justice. The large dining room was prettily decorated wiih flowers, chrys antheums predominating. From the dining room sweet strains of music greeted us and we trouped to the gymnasium where the gallant major, cadets and visitors tripped the licrht fantastic to the exquisit music rendered by Elbro's Orchestra of South Bend; Mr. and Mrs. II. II. Culver leading the (J rand March. The Academy with its hundred win dows fronting the lake and lighted by the myriads of electric lights, made from the pier a most striking picture We prepared to take our leave with re gret, wishing we were cadets of the Cul ver Academy, and wishing the Acad emy and the jolly Mr. Culver the best possible success. Cheer after cheer for the oflicer of the day, Major Tebbetts, and Mr. Culver echoed and re echoed and found a ready response in 'each heart. What's the matter with Culver? lie's all right. Who's all right? Culver. The Elkhart team could not refrain from glorying a little at their victory, and yelled Dickory-dickory-dock The mouse ran up the clock, The clock struck four Culver didn't score, Dickory-dickory-dock. As the train pulled in we remembered it was near the Sabbath, and with a lasting rememberance of the Academy, its cadets and teachers as well as the kind-hearted founder, and with a last cheer we said farewell to our friends, feeling that of all pleasant places we had ever been, Culver Academy was one of the most pleasant. Those present from Plymouth were: Mr.and Mrs. II. Logan, Mr. and Mrs. Hugs, Mr. and Mrs. Z. Tanner acted as chaperons. Misses Lottie Leonard, Cora Leonard, Mamie Iloham, Nellie Disher, Daisy Howell, Mamie Southworlh, Myrtle Mizely, Hattie Lauer, Meta Behrens, Grace Axe, Myrtle Ilutchings, Blanche Wolfe. Messrs. Ed.

The thousands of people who have gathered daily at Denver to see and re ceive healing power, met with disap pointment yesterday when they learned that Francis Schlatter, the man who no doubt is endowed with great magnetic power had diaappeared the night before. The beneficial results, reports of which preceded him from Mexico, created a desire to see him among the people of Denver and the surrounding country. His appearance there and the efl'ect of his touch to the enormous crowds that have visited him daily have given news paper reporters a rich harvest, and the Chicago dailies have been giving to the general public column atter column of sensational matter regarding this man. There has been a great deal of contro versy regarding the power this man posesses, and the majority of those who take the troub'e to read up accounts of his work look upon it with suspicion There seems to be no doubt as to the numerous cases of cures brought about by coming in direct contact with him Whether the power manifeste 1 is given through a higher power, or through shrewd manipulation of an electrica battery or not is a question unanswer able; but he does the work and let it be from whatever source it gains notoriety every day. Speaking about this so-called Messiah healing the people at Denver, Col., the editor of the Columbia City Post says he would have to see his .work to be convinced that he was not a fraud. The Rochester Republican puts it in the following manner. It is a question whether its theory is correct, but it wil bear contemplating. It says : "lou couldn't see any more than other people see. He takes his pati ents by the hand for a few moments and a large number of the applicants say they are greatly benefited by one treatment and many profess to be healed. If there is fraud or humbug it is with the persons treated and not with the magnetic healer who says nothing, asks no one to be treated, makes no promises and does not charge for his services. Magnetic healing is as old as the human family, and prob amy always win be, when the very good and pious people will denounce it as the works of witches and wizards. The professional physicians speak slightly of it because it is not in line with materia medica and medical ethics and the preacher gives it the go-by be cause it might be the works of their mysterious devil who is "the prince and the power of the air." Human magnetism is the power that works all miracles, and all magnetic men and woman can accomplish wonders if they have the nerve to withstand the an athe- mas that are hurled against them." INSTANTLY KILLED. (Jeo. Snyder of Itreinen, Mangled to Death This Morning. Special to the 1xik1'EN1knt. From Monday's Daily. Shortly after noon tö-day (Jeorge Snyder aged 70 years an old resident of Bremen, was killed by a through train while attempting to cross a bridge at that place. He saw the approaching train but thought he had sufli;ient time to cross the bridge. He was thrown sixty feet and instantly killed, both legs being broken head mashed and bowels Utterly torn out. Cornorer has been notified. Mr. Snyder has re sided in Bremen for over thirty years and raised a large family, several daughters stillliving, some ot whom are in Bremen. At the time oi his death Mr. Snyder was residing with one of his daughters of that place. Anti-toxine. It has been conceeded by a large num ber of the medical fraternity that there must be something more than faith in the use of anti-toxine. It is true that the people are too fast in taking any thing and everything that is brought to the print, and especially if coming un der a high sounding name. But with anti-toxine there seems to be no doubt that in almost hopeless cases of diphtheria it has proved an in valuable remedy. We note from one cf our exchanges where anti-toxine was administered last to little Tommy (Jalagher, a Wabash diphtheritic patient who was given up by the doctors and was considered as fatally ill. The next evening he was so apparently better that he was pronounced out of danger. The little fellow's recovery since that time has been remarkably rapid. This kind of reports comes to us every day and surely proves that this newly discovered remedy is doing a wonderful work. Stole Canned Fruit. Some miscreants entered the cellar of John Wolford's on North Michigan street, and carried away several cans of their choicest fruit. Mr. Wolford says f the parties will bring back the fruit he will pay them for their trouble. ELECTRICITY IN THE HOME. In Its Various .pliati-e4 It Will l: lieve Women from Muck lruli;.T .

"I've brought that one million dol lars," said the man, as he fumbled in his pockets. Before Secretary Hedges could make any inquiry, the visitor patted him again playfully, and whispered In his ear: "I've had the mayor made a duke." "A what?" asked the secretary. "Shall I tell him myself? Better break the news gently. Tell him that the million will help him keep up ap pearances, said the man.

Mars, as described by Percy Lowel must be a positively ideal place fo strong men. In the first place th Martian man might be three times a big every way without discovering it except by interplanetary comparison. "If he were on earth he would weigl twenty-seven times as much as the hu man being, but on the surface of Mars 6ince gravity is only about one-thin of what it is here, he would weigl but nine times as great. Therefore the ratio of his supporting powers t the weight he must support would b the same as ours. Consequently h would be able to stand with no more fa tigue than we experience. Now, con Eider the work he might be able to do His muscles, having length, breadtl an( thickness, would all be twenty- seven times as strong as we, and coulc accomplish twenty -seven times ai much. But he would further work up on what required, owing to decreased gravity, but one-third the effort tc overcome. His effective force, there fore, would be eighty-one times as great as man's, whether in digging ca nals or in other bodily occupation. As gravity on the surface of Mars is really a little more than one-third that at the surface of the earth, the true ratio is not eighty-one, but about fifty; that is; a Martian would be, physically, fiity fold more efficient than a man." Plausible Argument. Between the passenger offices of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis railway and the freight depot there is a little spot of green sward that th public has few opportunities of observ ing. A tall fence shuts off the view from the street, so that it is only when the large gate has been left open through mistake that passers-by get a chance to see the little park. Several days ago the gate was stand ing open, and two countrymen who happened to be passing stopped for a closer inspection. "What do you suppose that's for?" said one. "Don't know, unless it's where the railroad grazes its stock," was the re ply. "Pshaw; railroads don't have no stock," said the other In disgust. "You bet they do," said his com panion, "because I read in a paper about them watering their stock and I guess stock has got to eat as well as drink." Baltimore American. The Japanese In Formosa. It is not the Black Flags who are now opposing the advance of the Jap anese in Formosa. It is the Hakka yeomen and peasantry the men who have been accustomed all their lives, and their fathers before them, to till the fields with a gun beside them, pre pared for savages that might drop upon them at any moment on a head hunting foray. These men, who till now have only had matchlocks, have been sup plied with good arms and plenty of ammunition, and have been filled with dreadful stories of what the Japanese will do to them. They have no or ganization or discipline, but they are brave and determined and can carry on a guerilla warfare for an Indefinite period, fighting, as they believe they are, for their hearths and homes.
