The Independent for Saturday Night and Sunday Reading Plenty of Time to Read the News and Lok up the Good Things that Wide Awake Ad vertisers Have to Offer. Our readers will get the first issue of the Saturday Semi-Weekly Inde pendent to-day. The publishers of this paper have heard many commenda tory expressions and received many congratulations on the enterprise which is now giving Iniepknii:xt subscrib senbers two papers a week at the price of one. Whether the Semi-Weekly Inde pendent will te profitable from a bus iness view or not remains to be proven. It is not expected that it will be largely so from the fact that so few semi weekly papers are published, which, if such papers were to be considered as large paying or even fairly profitable investments, would nt be the case. But, as we have said before, we believe a liberal policy leads to the greatest ul timate success, It is so with liberal advertisers. It is so with broad-gUage, open-hearted, liberal minded men in all walks of life the world over. This suc cess may not be made up of thousands or millions of dollars but dollars do not constitute the whole of success. "We shall feel largely repaid for our added labor and expense by simply feeling that the result is worthy of ap 'preciation and is appreciated according to its merits. The Saturday Issue of the Semi Weekly Independent will reach its readers at a time When it can, by many, be best appreciated. It will reach the firesides of the homes into which it en ters on Saturday and will be at hand for Saturday evening and Sunday per usal when it can be read most leisurely and with the best satisfaction to a great many. Independent advertisers, who are widely recognized as wide awake Progressivebusiness men, will also re ceive careful and more deliberate atten tion for the same reason. The tendency of this will be to enlive'i the trade of the lore part of the week. The subscription price of the Semi Weekly Independent will continue the same as was that of the late veekly edition. Iteaders who have friends eith er near or distant may have sample copies sent them by simply sending ui their addresses. Xot lVea-I Yet. It is hard to fathom a woman's heart. Especially is this true when it is set upon a certain object, and Sf that object happens to be a man. Tfoe Winnamac Republican tells a httfe story, that in the past has been repeated with differ ent people as the (participants, It says: "It is hard sometimes to fathom the motives thatcontrol some people. For instance t&ere is a widow living not many ue'fles from here who is waiting to marry a man who has a divorce suit in the court at the present writing. She is drawing a pension of 312 per month, an amount that enables her with what work she can do, to live in comfort, if not in ease. The man she is waiting to marry has been married twice, his first wife was compelled to leave him on ac count of his brutality and failure to provide the commonest necessaries of life for her support. But a short time after she had secured a divorce he was married to a girl in her teens, who was compelled to leave him in a short time alleging the same reaaons. Now comes this woman who is ready to leave an assured support and marry him after he has shown himself incapable to sup port a wife. Verily, the fools are not all dead yet. Leo-Hetty. Last Thursday, occurred the wedding of Mr. Thomas B. Lee to Alice Betty, both of Bourbon. The ceremony took place at the Presbyterian parsonage, Kev. Breckenridge olliciating. The bride and groom are both well known, the latter having large lumber interests in Wisconsin. They will reside in Bourbon for the present. Fiftk Jubilee Singer. Through the efforts of the Kp worth League, the Fisk Jubilee sinners wil give one of their excellent entertain meuts in the opera house on the even ing of December 11th. The reputation of these colored singers is world wide and there is no doubt will draw a crowded house. TO LOCATE IN PLYMOUTH. Tadaypaly Veeraragava Hy. n -i t, d l'raliinaii. I.eet urer autl l'hjuiuii Move- I'utuilv Here. Tadaypaly Veeraragava Hoy, who has been in this inty this week, comes here with l he intention of making it his per manent home. He has alreadv sent for his ibrary and stock of medicines which are expected here within two or three days. His family will be moved here later. Dr. Hoy is temporarily located at the otlice of Heilder & Heeve and is making his home with John S. Heilder until some more permanent arrangement is determined upon. A?cc to J)r. Hoy he is the only high os. ahmin, with the exception ofNarent ii .sherdram, who was con verted to c'r i i.anity by Dr. Dull', of Scotknd, wiio has ever visited the United states. He claims to have been a graduate of the Allopathic school of medicine in India and to have gradu ated later in the Electric school in this country. lie was in the line of priesthood in his own country but was converted to Christianity by Dr. Scudder. of Hrooklyn, over twenty-two ago since which he has l een one of the faithful in the Presby torian church. His wife is a Scotch Canadian and is also a m mber of the I Vesbyterian church. Dr. Hoy is a gentleman of wide intel lectual attainments and a master of (Ireek, Latin, and Sanscrit. He is well read in histcry literature and science. "Had Eyes." An umbrella mender located himself in our city Tuesday anil proposed iö Celebrate the occasion by tilling himself up with -Injun tire water," and Dy night was in such a shape that it was necessary to move his location from off the streets to the calaboose, where he became worse and began to climb the walls, and tried to kick the stove over. There were a few more of the box car sleepers in the same place and from the looks of the poor umbrella mender's eyes this morning there must have been a time which might put one in mind of a pugilistic content. The umbrella man was badly beaten and gave his name as J no Ediuger, of Snyder county, Henri. That Snow Ordinance. The city council at its last meeting passed an ordinance regarding the cleaning of sidewalks, that should meet the approbation of property ovncrs, as well as those who are com pelled to travel upon them to and from business. There is a tendencey among a few of our citizens who think the council in passing this kind of an ordinance have went to far regarding the clean ing of walks. The fat of the matter is the ordinance as passed if properly enforced will be a great benefit to our city. There has never Deen a time during the winter season when snow has accumulated upon the walks, that as soon as the sun shines a short time, traveling upon the walks is in a degree dangerous, and a greater por tion of the time pedestrians are com pelled to take the middle of the streets to iirsure safety in travel. Then there are a large number of citizens who clexn their walks which proves but very little benefit when their next door neighbor fails to do the same. It is a good ordinance and our city council is to be commended for passing it, and our city will now be superior in that respect to any oi our sister cities. leerttl its Motlier. Tuesday forenoon about 11 o'clock while the freight train No. 80 was mov ing east a Mr. Sylvester Lovel a farmer living a few miles south of town had just driven up to Thayer's Elevator and a five months old colt had accompanied its mother also, and the colt seeing the train running by ran after it crossing the river bridge, then on to the Michi gan street viaduct and not being able to cross the bridge it ran down the bank, crossed over to Sophia street still keep ing up with the freight and meeting it at the Novelty Works crossing, and then followed the train down the track jumping cattle guards and crossings, until both train and colt reached ln wood. At times the colt would be close enough that the brakemen could hit it with a broom, but it paid no at tention to the shouts of tho men who tried to stop him. At Inwood the colt was caught and put in a barn. Mr. Lovel was telegraphed that the colt was safe dnd to come after it, which he did a little later on. From tho time the colt left its mother until it reached Inwood, a distance of six miles, the time was about thirty minutes. "A F1HST CLASS DEAD BEAT. on . I i:,d,. .

Iii Maine Mentioned, While there are a great many candi dates in the field for honors to be be stowed 'along political lines, there are others who do not make pretentions to seek an otlice and yet the political light ning hunts them out. While in Laporte last week we heard the name of one of our prominent citizens mentioned as a probable candidate for governor of In diana. We were, at that time, too timid to present the matter to our leaders, but as the Mishawaka Enterprise of Nov. 2Uth broaches the subject we will quote the following: "Among all the numerous names pub lished as likely condidaets for governor on the Republican ticket next yeart none will meet with greater favor in northern Indiana than that of Hon. Henry (!. Thayer, of Plymouth, whose name is being prominently canvassed in Indianapolis.' Doing UnsiiK'ss Along the Line. Some sneaking cur relieved a clothes line belonging to the editor one night last week. Anyone that will steal from people who are compelled to work so hard for a living are so infernally ornery that Old Belzebub will have to put them in his dry kiln,when they reach his domain, for they would be so completely saturated with this world's meanness as to put out all Old Nick's fires. Churubusco Truth. Hindoo Dot-tor Will Write. Wre will begin next week a series of articles from the pen f tne liev Tadaypaly Veeraragava Hoy, one of the only two high caste Brahmins that have ever visited America. These arti cles will touch upon life, religion and coustoms of the Orient and will un doubtedly be of deep interest to our readers. The first and second articles will be under the title "Ancient and Modern Hindooism."' Killed. Last Saturday while Lewis Meyer a prominent lawyer of South Bend, was in our city on business, he received a telegram of the death of his little four year old boy, who had been playing out in the street with his little sister, and attempted to follow tho little girl across the street. The boy ran under a street car and was killed instantly. Mustered Out. The Bremen militia company has been mustered out of the state's ser vice. The last act of the boys shows where their hearts are, for they do nated the money left in the treasury some 383.00 towards rebuilding the Itadiator works of that place. ltrakeman Hurt. Last night at Valparaiso while a brakeman on the Pennsylvania railroad was trying to couple some cars, he in some manner had his hand badly mashed. His hand was dressed by the railroad surgeon and he will lose none of his fingers. Al'out tl Same'. The editor of the Democrat of this city occupies about the same relative position to local democracy that Cleve land does to the national democratic party. A BABY SHOW.

A deep thinker has given some force ful words regarding the importance of good mothers. lie advises the abandonoment of club and the substi tution of training schools for mothers, lie says: We do not need Anvthintr j o in the world so much as good mothers. As well expect the housekeeper to run out a good batch of cookies if she makes them of saw dust and alum, as to expect the children to develop into good citizens without the right sort of mothers The right sort of a mother knows where her boy is all day. She spends time entertaining him rather than entertain shallow-leaded callers from everlasting to everlasting. She tells him stories, reads to him and picks out tunes with him on the piano. She is "chumy' with hin, too, and has his complete confidence. She does not alio a her girls to go to the depot to see the trains come in, nor does she allow them to spend nights away from the guardianship of their own home. She is watchful at the same time she is kind and loving alwiys, but never languid in the performance of those duties which the vast responsibility of motherhood has p'accd upon her. (jive us better mothers and the world will soon be lull of better men and women." The ltaliy. A writer in a neighboring paper says he cannot see why a fond mother will take a baby to church and o'her public places, to annoy and worry others. He thinks they ought to be left at home. They may be, but every mother cannot leave her baby at home, unless she stays to home with it, and as it is, a majority of them do not get away from home often enough. "There is no place like home'' we admit but often a wo man has been shut up all week in that come, and she generally feels like go ing to church on Sunday, even if she has to take her baby along. If it is noisy, it no doubt worries the mother more than any one else, but we say if she has no one at home with whom she can safely leave it, while she attends divine worship, she should take it along, in preference to remaining at home. If either husband or wife have to stay at home and keep the baby, we suggest that the former perform that duty. Tlie Tramp Question. The city councils of neighboring cities have adopted a plan of dealing with tramps that has proven successful and might be employed with equally good results if our authorities would see lit to adopt the plan. When a tramp applies for food he is sent by the citizen to the city marshal, who has in structions to furnish each tramp one meal, plain but substantial, if he will first earn it by pounding rock for two houis on the city's rock pile. If tho tramp refuses to work he is driven out of town under the threat of arrest for vagrancy. The average tramp does not like the scheme and gives the town where it is in operation, a wide berth. The annoyance to citizens is thus great ly lessened and on the other hand it is a good test of the sincerity of the men who ask for food and claim to be look ing for work. If a man is h.mest and out of employment he can at least se cure food at all times. TaineRville, O., druggists say nothing has been offered in that town for y.ara which is so popular and gives such uni versal satisfaction as Brazilian Balm.
