Nam's Mail. Mr. W. Peterson, of the pos ollice, placv as comfortab!: uul attractii-e as of this city, is an all around pracücal may be. man. lie has demonstrated this in j What is now needed lor our' last more ways than one. He is the only ! growing city, is some place lor the man in Plymouth, one or two skilled j proper presentation of public e'ileitain mechanies possibly excepted, that ; ments. There surely can be found m can make a key for a Vale lock without Plymouth a sullicient number of inen a pattern. Where he has opportunity j who will form a stock company for the to observe he has a quick eye to detect ! purpose of erecting some suitable place the necessities of improvement and a for these entertainments. While this ready suggestion as to how improve- movement would be a great help to our ment may be accomplished and now, by a single bold stroke of genius he is to revolu. ionize the methods of locking and unlocking Uncle Sam's mail bags. The present met had of locking and unlocking mail bags is the same as it was years ago and while the postal de partment has undergone wonderful im provements in almost every way within the last few years post masters and rail way clerks have to handle the same to day as they did years ago. Mr. Peterson's device w ill greatly expedite n.2iU;3 in this respect with the result of an almost incalculable saving of time when the whole department is con sidered. The United States has millions of dollars invested in mail bags and a strong recommendation for Mr. Peter son's device is that its adoption will not necessitate discarding or throwing away the bags now in use. The present mail bag can be adapted to it with but slight alteration. A New Km iia'ii;'. While looking over our exchanges this week we came across, one of an unfamiliar nature. When we examined its contents we discovered it was the Daily Evening News, of Dunkirk Indi ana. Deing aware of but one person in that city who had previously been in Plymouth, we were not very much sur prised to see the name of Sinalley Pros, at the head of the editorial page. J. It Smalley, formerly of this city, is no doubt one of the proprietors as he seemed to have a sneaking desire when he left Plymouth to encase his form in in editoriil chair. The News is a well conducted and interesting local paper, and by the appearance of the apvertis ing, an appreciated auxiliary in Dun kirk. The lNDi:rr.M)i:NT extends well wishes. A Word to I lie Vouiijj 3l-n. Young man, don't get too foxy. If you happen to get in possession of a few dollars, act just as you did befoie you got them. Don't swell up and burst. If you have a good share of brains you won't do this; you will re member that neither money, clothes, nor good looks makes the man, and that worth is as often garbed in a ragged coat as in broadcloth. Don't stand on hotel steps, dangling your watch chain, and talk "Hoss." Those who load themselves with airs are the smallest kind of potatoes, and the fewest in the hill. A fat job often spoils young men of weak minds; they immediately com mence to dress line, and take pride in cultivating an aldermaniac corporocity and a sporting air. Sensible people are always disgusted with such actions when they deign to notice them, which is very seldom. Tapfr Walls. Mr. J. W. Maxey has introduced into this city a novelty in interior house finishing. Instead of plastering he is using a specially prepared manilla wall and ceiling paper in a house just being linished in his addition in the west part of the city. The paper leaves a smooth even finish, looks well and from the maimer in which it is applied appears desirable in every respect. It is claimed to be superior to plasteimg in many wavs. 'WANTED."

J jivo ill its piWer, without the expciulilmeof its own personal lands, uiadt; iho city, it would also be a paying invest - ment to those who would enter into the enterprise. We believe this is one of the most im portant subjects to be settled at this time. There is not a town in the state of Indiana the size of Plymouth, that is not the possessor of an opera house that gives its location prestage. And we will venture this assertion: No strang er has ever entered the prehistoric structure known as the Centennial opera house, but lias been astounded. This is important. The Queen City oi Indiana, with its magnificent business blocks, its beautifully shaded and graded streets, its magniticent manu facturing enterprises, its intelligent and han Jsonie women, its broad, liberal and progressive business men, who all are interested in the welfare of this community, cries out against tins antedeiuvian imposition. Let some one set the ball in motion, and see how quickly this matter will be adjusted. Tin Last I.--ture. The good results from the lecture given by Mrs. Trego while in Plymouth will live, when she with us, have been carried to the other shore, where the white ribboned host are gathering one by one. " The good we do, lives after us, the evil lies buried with us.' As a union we publicly thank Pro. Smith, of the M.F. church for his kind invitation to Mrs. Trego, to preach in his pulpit on last Sunday morning. Her lecture in the opera house on Sunday evening was given to the largest audience ever gathered in our city for a lecture. The close attention, the death like stillness which reigned through the vast crowd, was commented upon by the thinking ones present. As we looked around over the mass of faces, we wondered if there was one home in our city not rep resented. "The bread has been cast upon the waters," and we have the in finite promise Fiat "After many days I we shall find it." Wednesday at 1)::0 o'clock the ladies waiting room at the P. F. W. & C, depot was filled with W C. T. U.. women, to bid Mrs. Trego good-bye, (Jod speed, as she left us, first for her home in Deleware, Ohio, then to other Fields of labor. She was given the Chatauqua salute, and we parted to meet again we know not when. Pres. Sitt. Thanks are due to the ministers w ho assisted us in the devotional exercises of these meetings. P. S. Sin pri'tl. Monday noon a few of the friends of Mr. David I lew gathered at the resi dence o" Vdcf Mcl aughlins, on North Walnut street, where a birthday dinner had been prepared in honor of Mr. How's fi'Jlh, anniversery. In the eve ning the party all left for Win Murphy's farm residence near Pretty lake, where an oyster supper had been prepared and a good social time is reported. Iiir! pVur!

If the nianagetnerr. ,i the Centennial barn iecehed tt.e x;jer encourage ment f i oni the . w'.'.i r :' the property, a radical change :o o;il.4 would be in augurated in the diatter. Yet it seems to us that some means could be divised to protect those who give their good money to bo allowed to sit on an uncom fortable chair two or three hours, to protect them from the mischievous pranks of the -gallery gods." At the en tertainment, Wednesday night, at times when the lovers of music were giving . the closest attention to some passage of ; music mat was oi great interest to them they were disturbed by the boys in the gallery in more ways than one. There is noe lasing the fact that this could be prevented, and the responsibility should be located and attended to. Mn-t llavt Horses liol. At South Fend the humane otlicer has commenced giving notice to the farmers, that if they expect to be allowed to drive their horses upon the streets of South Pend, they must get their horf.es shod. While this in some respects looks like discriminating against the country folks, jet it is a matter of human sympathy for the beast. I'nll'l 1 I list to l.lM k.
