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

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
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

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

this community, cries out against

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.

Mr. David I lew gathered at the resi

Walnut street, where a birthday dinner
had been prepared in honor of Mr.

farm residence near Pretty lake, where
an oyster supper had been prepared and
a good social time is reported.

ihco Wf tiavv been located ir
Plymouth, one 1 the iat annoyances
that has ajeomnanie.: entertainments
at the optra house, i-- the order kept in
the gallery, it is hard matter to locate
this blame regarding this crying evil.
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.
