Some ten candidates were installed into the mysteries ol' the 'Orient" ami became loyal subjects to the great Casha, who was present to graciously receive them. Never betöre in the history of Plymouth has such a j gentlemanly yet jolly crowd assembled toother, and not mit il t tie small hours of the morning crept in upon them, did they desist irotu their labors, and rest upon the laurels they so heroically won. At 7 ::J0 the west bound Pennsyl vania train brought in thirty Princes from llouibon with their "Mascot." Re 1 aning immedially to the hall, they be gan preparation for the work. The en tire ceremony went off without a hitch, and the lioo Princes present were unan imous in pronouncing it the greatest "least" they were ever enabled to wit ness, with such an array of talent in conferring this realistic work. Among the prominent Princes of our city who were present, and who took great delight in listening to the charges given to the weary pilgrims as they journeyed on tow aid the rising sun, were Or. (i. R. Reynolds, Mayor Swindell, L. Tanner, J. C. Jilson and a number of others w J o are old wheel horses as assistants around the sacred person of the Pasha. And it is said they were so wrapt up in the .symbols representing this order that they laded to attend the excellent lunch pre paired tor the occasion. Never for one moment did the scene of intellectual magnilienee become dim from the time the old arm chair with its glistening ar ray id' sparkling jewels and royal purple under its magnificent canopy top, was placed upon its throne, to the time when the last weary pilgrim found rest under the shade of the palm trees in the beautiful gaulen of the Orient. The Rourhon team executed the lloor work in an excellent manner, led by Mr. .lohn Colvin, post master of that place, and assisted by a corps of competent otlicers, ami also by Argos Princes, a number of whom were present. Music was furnished by the mandolin t .i i orcnesira, mm unring the evening an excellent lunch was served. It was about l::fti when the secret work was completed, and all the Princes went home al ler vowing to attend every ses sion in trie future that presented itself. Those who were made lull-pledged Princes last night were: Otto Albert, Win. .McLaughlin, John McKinney, Hid I.Iain, Prosper Hall, Carl Reynolds, P.ert Logan. L. II.

The I t-sl Organ Muh, II ill, llounliui; al Ihe Comity's lltptMist un the .bvt ('barge. List Tuesday the Inium'knuknt wrote up a man by the name of Wilber S. Hill, wherein he was charged with the crime of forgery. Since that time some very interesting events have I taken place which will bring this man's name more prominently before the public, and show him up in such a light as to entirely remove every shad osv from the minds of our people as to the kind of a man he is. P.ver since his sojourn in Plymouth he has been boarding with a family on the south side by the name of Siple. Jacob Sj ple has a daughter aged 17 years, w hose comely appearance attracted the eye of this organ peddler. Ret ween the times he occupied imposing on th people in attempting to sell organs, he has util ized every hour in whispering words of love and devotion into the ears of this unassuming girl. The climax of Hills cussedness occurred about January .'Id, when he persuaded her to go with him to Wal nut, where he informed the confiding girl he would make her his wife. It seems that he had eoueoeted a well matured plan to seduce this trusting woman without one compunction of conscience, and this was the first im portant step in that direction. When they arrived at Walnut they went to the hotel. Whether he reg istered as man and wife we have as yet failed to learn. Rut this much has been learned. After arriving Hut he told her that owing to surrounding cir cumstances they would be compelled to occupy the same room, to which she indignantly refused. Rut he finally . hot Morj . Here is a local ghost and story, which, while it constituted a very exciting night scene m the life drama of those who played leading parts, has not yet been made generally pub- he. A week ago Saturday night, a certain belated pedestrain, while passing the residence of W. K. Railey, on the south side, saw what he verily believed to be a ghost. To an Indki'KNDknt reporter he described the apparition as being very tall, and clad in a long w hite (lowing robe which Muttered in the midnight bree.e. lie said the ghost was march ing around Mr. Railey s residence with stately measured tread, with itsga.e steadily fixed upon a point in the sky directly over the house. The ped estrian stood spell bound for a few seconds but recovered and hastily de parted, lie never stopped running un til he got home, lie was thoroughly couviuctd that no man could be out in his night shirt at midnight with the thermometer not many degrees above zero and live, and as he heard of no death in the immediate neighborhood he became absolutely certain thai he had seen a materialized spirit from the w orld of the departed. There is another chapter to the story however by which the iMMTF.Nor.NT hopes to undeceive him and set his mind at rest. A week ago Saturday night W. K. Railey was rudely awakened by a dis turbance on his metal roof. A large metal roofed dow window forms a sort of alcove in Mr. Railev's bed room Against the top of this window leaned a ladder, set there some time previous when roof repairs were made. When Mr. Railey heard an unusual noise on the roof at the head of the ladder his natural inference was that a burglar had just climed the ladder and was crossing the roof to gain entrance to the house by a second story window. He listened a moment and was convinced. Step by step he heard the burglar move over the roof. He arose, grasped his revolver and went to the window. After waiting a moment the better plan seemed to go out on the porch where, he believed the burglar, being alarmed, would at tempt to descend. Rut from the porch the steps retreated to the window. Hastily returning to the window Mr. R. thought he would wing the burglar as he came low n the ladder, but the steps were heard to again approach the porch. To make sure that he would not come down by the ladder, Mr. R. removed that moans of escape and returned to the perch. Now all was still. Mr. R. now concluding that the burglar was enter ing the house by an upstairs window, re turned to his bed room, sieed a lamp, and with lamp in one hand and six shooter in the other boldly climed the stairs: but when ho reached the second Moor all was still and nothing had been disturbed. Completely nonplussed but determined to solve the mystery he re turned to the ground lloor ami went out doors again toreconnoiter. Clad only m a w hite night robe and goose Mesh he walked stealthily three times around the house without making any dis covery. The burglar, howover.could still be distinctly heard on the roof. Mr. Railey was finally compelled, by. the wintry zephyrs, to return to the house for a fresh supply of animal heat, most of his natural supply having been exhausted. He proposed to go out again and lind that burglar but on Mrs Railoy's advice he concluded to goto bed and let the burglar burgle. With the first gray light of dawn he was out to solve the mystery. 'Fids time he succeeded. He found on the roof, with teeth chattering, and sniveling from head to foot (.'hilled to the very bone a black cat, the opera house last night to w itness a public installation of otlicers for the ensuing year and to participate in the intellectual ami material feasts which had been so well prepare i for them. At 7:'?o o'clock a rap of sir Knight Maxej's gavei brought the assembly to order. The primary object of the occa sion was stated to be that of installing 1 the newly elected otlicers of the tent. Incidentally there was to be music and feasting and merry-making to the heart's content of the most expectant. The program was opened by orches tra music and prayer by Sir Knight Landis, followed bv another musical selection. In the absence of (Jreat Commander Sir Knight Meredith, Sir Knight Adam 11. Wise ollieiated in his stead ami di rected the installation of the following otlicers: M. C. Walls, Past Commander. W. R. Haskitt, Commander. Josiah Hoffman, Lieut. Commander. il. (J. Love, Chaplain. J. R. P.oyer, Sargeant. Daniel Jacoby, Master-at-arms. Joseph Arney, 1st Master of the (iuards. F.J. Oilier, 2nd Master of theOuards. C. K. Nyhart, Sentinel. 1. A. Kitchy, Pickett. Sir Knight Wise was then installed as record and finance keeper by (Jreat Lieutenant Commander of Indiana, Arthur Hison, of La Porte. After the orchestra bait most ex quisitely interpreted another selection of music addi esses were delivered by Sir Knights Hison. Wise and (Jreat First Ouard Joseph A. Vockey. These gentlemen spoke eloquently of the grow th and benefits of the organization. Tliü banquet was served m the V. M. C. A. hall where tables were spread and plates were laid three times before all were served. Taken all m all the oc casion was without doubt one of the most successful of its kind ever given in Plymouth and is said to have been the most largely attended banquet ever given by any society in this city. "THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER." ;. I'.t-iili Williams, of the Nwrtlieru lu tlitiiiiuu, uu the Country Journal. The following is from the pen of one of Indiana's most noted journalists and is worthy of perusing more than once, so that the full import of its meaning is indelibly stamped on the mind of the reader. After speaking of the numerous papers in Northern Indiana, he confines: "What is more, their subscribers owe them much, for no class of men labor more unceasingly or vigorously and un selfishly to forward the interests of those among whom they are located and have their homes. In this partic ular the public owes the conductors of their respective home journals more than can be told. Their efforts never cease and so much is d ine by them free of charge that their big city com petitors exact pay for to the last far thing. "It never will be known how much the country in general owes the well conducted, active, aggressive, wide awake country newspapers, for they have been the pioneers in every worthy local work that would in any way be of advantage to their own people, and one and all should receive a generous, un grudging support that would lift them above the line of the w orry and engross ing effort to barely 'make ends meet with not a dollar more, thus taking them away from duties that would enable them to improve, beautify and brighten their respective journals, rath er than to le foi ever vexed about the wherewithal that will be required on the coming Saturday night when the weekly expenses fall due. The general public would be surprised to see how much their respective home papers would improve were this worry about the finances of the journal lifted from the shoulders of the publishers by promptness on their part. Forty-eight years in a new spaper ollice has enabled us to learn this much, if no inure." G. W. HOLMEN CHOSEN. At (lie Ki'Miltli:iii District (mi veuWoii lleM at South lliil Yvterl:. ii. W. Holmen Wu Fleeted Ch;iii iiiau. Tuesday a jolly crowd of repub licans arrived home from South Rend, bubbling over with enthusiasm, and claiming to have met with a refreshing shower of political allluence from the gathering of notable politicians in that city. They were loud in their praise of .south Rend, when referring to the treatment received. As stated Tuesday by the 1ndi PFMU'iNT, this meeting was for the purpose of electing a chairman for the Rtth congressional district. The con vention seemed in perlect accord, and unanimously elected il. W. Holmen, of Rochester, to that honored position, ami it is said that Mr. Holmen will without doubt support John K. How dy, of Rushville, tor chairman of the Indiana repubhem state committee. The counties represented in this district were St. Joseph, F.lkhart, Kosciusko, Fulton, Marshall, Pulaski and Starke, and every delegate was present. The meeting was held in the (Jood opera house, and at was called to order. It was announced that owing to a tire which had occurred at his home, it had made it impossible for R. R. Ogles bee, the retiring chairman, to be pres ent. Wilbert Wood, of St. Joseph county, was elected chairman of the conven tion. Fred A. Miller, of the South Rend Tribune, was chosen secretary, and also all republican tnlitors present as assistant secretaries. The committee on resolutions was appointed, Win. Kendall, of Plymouth, representing Marshall county in this body. The resolutions presented by this body were purely repuolican and with out any beating around the bush an nounced the position assumed, empha sizing the fact that "it was a party of protection protection to labor, pro tection to industries, protection to all alike and believed in reciprocity, the handmaiden of protection." They also gave a touch to the Monroe doctrine and declared that they would always sympathize with any nation struggling Court Note. Jennie Rerkeypile vs. Moses Rerkey pile.

Lately she called upon him for when he treated with disdain. She told him she would have his pension cut olT, the announcement of which he treated with contempt. She placed herself in communication with the pension department, and the result has been that Hampton has had his pension cut down to $11 a month.
