Our friends, the versatile and highly , 'advertised members of the Dr. .Jones! j medicine company, traveling vendors i 5fr4- 00 'ol nea'm lotions, entertainers of the) j dear, kind public and incidentally illus- j trators of the message treatment as i applied to the human physiognomy, are I no longer with us. They have packed) their grips like the Midway Arabs and as silcntlv slid outside the municipal 1 corporation. j Thus falls the closing curtain upon the last scene in the warm, rosy-tinted little comedy which has had all the community agog for the past week. It's all over now. .Justice has been sat islied. Noble Kohr has ceased his noble roar (copyrighted), the erstwhile guests of the local bastile have shaken the figurative dust of Plymouth from their generous goloshes, a long string of officials have a little old wad of I'ncle Sam's greenbacks stowed away in their inside pockets for fees and costs, etc., and town wiseacres can take their fami ly thermometers out of the icebox and change the street corner discussion around to the topic of Urother Carlisle's latest bond issue. It took just alout 'steen minutes in the circuit court yesterday evening to settle the whole business. The defend ants had been moving toward an early trial. That is, those outside of jail had. The other two hadn't moved a great deal, seeing as it wasn't their move yet. The last move they made, they jump ed a man, and it got them into trouble. Attorney Kellison had been engaged to assist the State in the circuit court, and the hearing was finally arranged for l'uesday evening after supper. Dr. 1'. I.. Jones, one of the proprietors id' the combination, came down Satur day and began arranging to end the trouble as rapidly as possible. This Doctor .Jones is considerable of a lawyer himself, and he knew about what the probabilities were. He canvassed the situation pretty thoroughly, noticed the differences in general opinion as typified in the street corner conversaziones and then hunted up The prosecuting witnesses to discuss the matter in a business way. The immediate result of this work on the part of the doctor with the very un common name was soon apparent, lie had a common-sense way of looking at things and he also had money to burn a wet log with. Between 5 and t o'clock there came a lull - a quiet moment or two in the cir cuit court. Then the business was call ed up. Mr. Kohr was some place inside the corporation, and in the left hand pocket of his vest lay nicely folded away five large, long, pretty fclu bills. lie had met Doctor .Jones sometime previous. Farmer Kiddle, "whose house had been smashed into and turned topsy-turvey generally during the sensa tional melee of last week.was also some place around looking at the pictures on fifty dollars worth of Uncle Sam's long green art publications. .Mr. Kiddle had also run across Doctor .tones somehow. Doctor Jones and the rest of the de fendants were on hand, with their at torneys, Martindale and Stevens. The Doctor had a bankful of money left to throw at the snow birds. Judge Capron was shown that the prosecuting wit nesses and injured parties liad been set tled with and were satisfied. The State was willing to agree to a nominal line, and the defense was willing to square up and say "quits." So they plead guilty, a line of one dollar and costs was assessed by the .Judge. It was promptly settled, the costs of the hearing in the lower court were paid, the prisoners were discharged, Marshal Myers pulled his moustaches out another half au inch and the band played on. That's how Jones he paid the freight, and it cost him something between three and four hundred dollars to pay it, at a low estimate. And the first train out of town had the troupe aboard bound for pastures new. When the people who had read the announcement of the evening trial in Tu k Daily Indkimindknt arrived at the courtroom, the whole atTair was a reminiscence. Look at tin I nn He lliitl ( Smith r.-ul Tritnne. "den." Kandall, who endeavored to make a hero of himself by marching at the head of a hoboarmv from Chicago : to the national capital, has more com mon sense now drilled into hint by the diamond like point of experience. This may be putting it a little stronger than the "general" deserves but he ought to have more sense for he has had the kind of experience which so often makes a sane men sensible when noth ing else will. Not satisfied with march ing at the head of a hobo army he con ceited the idea of establishing an ideal town on the steppes of northern Mich igan where wealth would comeeasy and wheie the citizens would enjoy the fruits of common labor and never the acquaintance of the trials and fail ures of life. The result of the first year's work at this ideal town of Hiawatha where municipal co-operation was to be king proves the best laid plans of foolish men too frequently are utter failures. The sole result seems to be 1,000 bush els of potatoes worth 10 cents a bushel, and more experience than they know what to do with. The inhabitants, numbering some fifty families, are m a very hard way, and to cap the climax "(Jen." Kandall has gone to Chicago. The man who had an idea that all the fools are dead may now change Iiis mind "(Jen." Kandall still lives. Wailed Jul I lie Same. The democtatic convention Wednes day brought among other visitors a party of eight well known politicians from Knox, headed by the genial auditor "tins" Kuosman. It is a rest of denous winding way from I'lymouth to Knox by railroad, and the party be gan to look around for a quick way home. First they wired the agent at Hamlet to know if he could get the Pennsylvania train to stop to let them off there, and also hohl the 'A-l freight for the 1'ennsylvania tram. The agent alter some dilliculty male the proper a'Tj'.ngements and wired back to that effect. Hut meantime the eight Knox men had given up and gone around over the Lake Kne road to alkerton, and thus were on the very II-1 freight when it got to Hamlet. There it stop ped accornding to orders to await the Pennsylvania. After a wait of an hour and a half or so, the fretting Starke county men asked one of the blank blank they were waiting there all day for. The reply was, "For a party of eight from Pl mouth on the Pennsyl vania train, who want to get to Kno. It is said a slight blue cloud still hovers over the village of Hamlet, a last Meeting reminder or the unpaiii mentary remarks indulded in all parties concerned about that time. Wit lit Ulm Aani. In a second article on the lecture of II. (J. Thayer at the college in Valpa raiso, the Evening Messenger says--"The lecture was one of the most in structive as well as one of the best ever delivered in our city. For more than one hour Mr. Thayer held the undivid ed attention of one of the largest and most critical audiences ever assembled here. At the close of the address one felt that he had actually taken the journey through the ancient city of Kome, so realistic were the scenes as described. The lecture was scholary and showed great care m its prepara tion. One of the best evidences of its appreciation was that immediately at Its close arrangements were commenced to secure Mr. Thayer to deliver another lecture in ourcitv."

The thirteenth district democracy, or its representatives, met in Plymouth Wednesday afternoon to clasp hands over its record and to cheer itself up so much as might be for the future. The attendance was very fairly good, and several of the old lead-horses were present to assist in the courage-inspiring whistle. Chairman Conrad of Warsaw called the gathering to order m the opera house about 2 o'clock. Fditor John K. Stoll of South Kend Times was chosen permanent chairman, and made a time ly address crowded full of political wis dom upon assuming the chair. , Editors (Jprrell,of the Starke County Democrat, and McDonald, of Plymouth, A cre made secretaries. When it came to the selection of a district chairman, the lot fell upon Peter J. Kruyer of this city, who thus becomes the head of the district organi zation and a member of the state cen tral committee. In the meantime, a committee on resolutions had been named, ami its report was read by its chairman, the eloquent young ex-Congressman 1. F. Shively of South Kend. The resolutions were about of the usual sort, although one plank favored silver coinage. The la'ter wis adopted with only one dissenting vote m the house and that belonged to Attorney Martindale. In order to give the proper finish to the proceedings, speeches were made by Messrs. Shively.Supreme Court Keportcr Sidney Moon and others, before the meeting was formally closed.

"SCRAPPED" THE MARSHAL. A ul (Jet Free Hoard of ltreal ami Water lor A u hile in C'oiiii:iieiiee. Life is not a path of roses day by day for the police force of a small town. It's all right so far as dress parade busi ness goes, but there are other times when it is not all it is cracked up to be. Marshal Myers on Tuesday arrested a strange fellow, elderly but remarkably lively wanderer, for an over indulgence in the (lowing bowl. He stopped in jail over night, was discharged next day ami immediately began to "bowl up" again. Finally Wednesday it became necessary to take him into custody again. This time the festive old boy was feeling quite jubilant and he began to think he was a regular whole Doctor Jones combination all by himself. He had gotten as far along in the program as kicking the oilicer in the face a couple of times, when there was a change in the bill and the strang er commenced to see shooting stars and ring-tailed comets and things. Justice Keeves looked him over this morning and proceeded to slam up about thirty dollars worth of line and costs against him. He did not hive the amount handy, and for the next month or so, mail matter addressed in care of SheritT Smith or Chaplain Klack will be pretty sure to reach him in safety. LA PAZ.
