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
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.
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.

"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.

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.

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."'
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.

ionl Mother.
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
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.
