I'., Jacox received a telephone 1 message from South P.end this morn I nig asking him to look out for a ! brown horse with one white hind foot anil a cropped tail. Ora .Jacoxhad I hardly stepped out on the sidewalk j when lie saw the identical horse and j buggy passing by. j The proper otllcers were notified, and j the man, who gave Iiis name as Kose, j I was arrested by ollice Klinger, and i placed in jail. His horse and buggy ! we-1 hikt'ti to .hicnv' bnrn ivliAr nnon examination, it was found to be in a very bail condition. On the spokes of the wheels on the left side of the buggy 1 were found large blotches of blood, and j on the cover was sound other indica j tions that where the buggy and its occu j pant had been.a legitimate business had I not been practiced. Mr. John K.Shanks I a South liehd liveryman, arrived here at noon. The following is his story ot the affair. This man Kose came into his barn, and hired a horse and buggy, for the supposed purpose of I going out into the country a short dis tance to be gone but a few hours. The man not returning last night his suspicion were aroused, and he tele phoned to Plymouth with the aboe re- ' suits. On further investigation, pieces of wool were found on the buggy and a two-bushel sack marked, "Deedle." It was soon discovered that a man of the above name resides near Lakeville and is a raiser of sheep. This clrw was followed until it was learned that this man Pose had sold thirty-four sheep pelts at Sehuetheis' tannery.

James McDowell, of Logansport, passed through Plymouth Monday with a silver mounted pair of bracelets on. This is the fellow, who a few days ago got badly mixed with Logansport liquor, and then went home. When he arrived there he desired his aged mother to give him live dollars. She refused to give it to him; the brute then beat her almost to death. It did not take a jury long to mete out the proper pun ishment to him only five years. t;liiniiiy 011 1 in. Monday-night while the wind was playing hide-and-seek around the corner of the houses the chimney of Mrs, S. Pearman was discovered to be on tire. A number of neighbors rushed in and in a short time the lire was extin guished. It is reported that when Melvin Chase and Frank Petcher arrived on the scene they thought heroic measures should be used. After due delibera tion salt was thought of as an elfective remedy. Chase being the youngest he was called upon to scale the roof, while Petcher acted as director. Securing a crock full of salt, Melvin cautiously approached the chimney along the comb of the roof, having some trouble to hold on to the salt and at the same time keep his coat tail in the proper place. After an effective dose of salt down the chimney he at tempted to slide the vessel containing the salt down the roof, while Petcher tried to catch it as he would a ball. He didn't catch it, but his head did. Vehicles Titled. When you talk about wheels and de sire to discover the largest, geared to run the fastest, we would refer you to the city dads of Anderson, Ind. It is currently reported that they have under consideration an ordinance for the tax ing of vehicles that appear on their streets. For instance, if the unfortunate fanner (he always seems to get it in the neck) desires to go to town Saturday and dispose of a couple dozen eggs ho will be met at the suburbs by a collector and be required to pay a small sum into the city treasury, unless, perchance, he has previously called upon the city clerk and deposited a sullieient sum of money which would entitle him to a license to come into town in his wagon as often as he wanted to, Sunday in cluded. Of cource the farmers could avoid this little ineonenience by walk I ii tr into the sacred nreeinets of this i . i great city, or, to more thoroughly meet I the new condition of affairs, use pack I mules. i It is saiii that the fanners in that 'section have astonished the j "pluggers" by informing them itv that j j they will boycott the place and do their j trading elsewhere. It is also asserted I thai the livery men and other lines of j : carriers are loolish enough to object to 1 this new mode of raising revenue, which ! informant says was introduced into the council chamber by an aspirant for the position of pound-master ofthat citv.

He dashed into the room, seied the girl and began be aboring her with the whip, broke it and then kept up his pounding with the butt until the lady fell fainting to the lloor, he meanwhile saying he would kill anyone who intertered. Afterwards he picked up the senseless girl, put her in his buggy and drove home. The surgeon was called, who pronounced her injuries serious. Iler clothes were saturated with blood, two lingers .ere Light fully lacerated and her condition is critical. A Keiiuirkitble lln. Korr.r.o.N, Feb. 7. IV.'.-Special to Tin: Daily Indkpkxikxt. Since the report of a few days ago regarding the great production of eggs from some 2S hens owned by Upton Stansbury.of Ply mouth, there has been brought to our notice a most peculiar freak of nature, so it would seem to the casual observer, but to the person concerned it seems as only a result of st udy and labor. Mr. Chas. Spencer, a prominent bar ber of this place, has been engaged for the past four years in raising thorough bred poultry. He has at last succeeded it: producing a most remarkable pullet noted for its peculiar striping.thestripes begin just back of its ear lobes passing around the body and changing from red, white and blue, each color being very distinct. Mr. Spencer claims to have produced this pullet by cross breeding with the lied File, Leghorn, White Wonder and lllue Andalusian. lint what seems the most strange is that the pullet has just laid her llrst egg which is striped the same as herself with circles of red, white and blue, but this has been satisfactorily a -.'counted for by Mr. O. I. (Jreer, and Mr. Wm. Iludi, both of this place. After making close examinations of the coops and the parks they found that Mr. Spencer had placed some two years ago an old bar ber pole in the coop for a roost and this pullet has always used the same for roosting. This, with the nature of the hen has caused some curiosity. A Country Social. A very enjoyable social event oc curred at the elegant country residence of David Staley, just north of In wood, on Friday evening last. Quite a number of intimate friends gathered at about S o'clock, and perpe trated a very pleasant surprise on Miss Mary Staley in honor, of her 17th birth day. An excellent program of music was well executed by the accomplished musician, .Miss Hertha Staley. After partaking of light refreshments the participants of the happy occasion de parted for their homes, wishing their hostess many birthdays as happy as the one just spent. III. Koy lHscoters ; I'miid. Dr. Hoy says that the longer he lives the more experience he gets. He re cently rendered some slight medical as sistance to Alouzo (Jrenner a stout, short young man about 22 years of age, a young man whom the doctor now says has had according to his own state ment two or three wives. When (Jrenner represented that he was poor and wanted a home the doc tor says he gare him shelter and food and per mouth for his service.

Tli Sjuaii, ( oiHi i t. Monday night the people of our city turned out enmasse to spend an evening with the (Jertrude Sprague Concert Company, at the M. E. church. The large auditorium of this church was packed, every seat being tilled and chairs placed in the aisles to accomma date a large number. With the exception of the necessity to use an organ instead of a piano, the latter being an actual necessity to com pletely give the musical numbers the uesired effect, the concert was a success, and highly appreciated by all present. While some of our people were in clined to think it was not up to the standard of the original Schumann Quartet, yet as a whole the entertain ment was of the highest musical order.

She was born near Plymouth, Ind., but when she was 11 years old her par ents, Mr. and Mrs. Zibe Truex, moved to Elkhart county, where she soon gain ed many friends and associates and where she was loved and respected by all who knew her. Iler health began to fail in the win ter of IH'M i3, and in the spring, being exposed to and taking the measles they left the germ of consumption, which caused her death. Her parents did all in their power to restore her to her former health, but efforts were no avail, she dropped and faded as a blossom and has gone to take up her dwelling with the angles. During the last few weeks she was confined to her bed, where she received the most careful at tention of the family and neighbors. Iler suffering was borne with true Christian fortitude. On Tuesday be fore her death she gave up all hope of recovery, putting her whole trust in the Lord as her only helper in the last few days of her earthly sojourn. Friday morning, Jan.

Whhli Control Over $M,ODO, ooo.ooo oi Ca-Mtrtl- $:'.r..Oio.ooo An imal l ;ii on Consumers. l ioin M.iit laj's New York World:-- A new trust, greater, richer, stronger, more important than any other trust now in existence, has been formed. Involving thousands of miles of rail road and more than 2,000,UuiJ,ÜX) of capital of the Vanderbilts and J. Pier pont Morgan, it is far ahead of the w ildest dream of wealth and monopoly which the late Jay Could ever con ceived. J. Pierpont Morgan is the master spirit and originator of the new trust, the magnitude of whose opera tions makes the protits of a gold ring seem insignificant and trilling. The anthracite coal mining and railroad companies sold last year W.uuO.üüO tons of coal at an average wholesale price of ."3.oS. It is proposed by the new trust to raise the price to St a ton. On decreased production an increased profit of $:i3,UU0,(XX is assured and will be divided among eleven companies. The great Coal trust begins opera tions today by advancing the price of coal 'A7i cents a ton. This increase is only the fust step, but it means over ? 1 ". h HJ.OOt i increased cost to consumers and an even greater profit to the trust, as many middlemen and selling agents are to be dispensed with. The new trust is a giant, compared to which the Standard Oil, the Sugar, the Tobacco and the Leather trusts are mere pigmies. The magnitude of these interests since the monopoly of anthra cite coal mining has been added to the enormous railroad interests already centralized is so vast and far-reaching that bankers and railroad men cannot estimate its ultimate effect. Excluding bonds, the new coal and railroad trust stands for nearly Sl,lX)0,Un),UX capital ! and 2 4, ":() miles of railroad. This cap ital stands for two and a half times the entire bonded debt of the United States. The advance in the price of coal made today by the trust is the first step. It is proposed soon to pet about 'JO cents a ton more for coal than last year's prices. I.at Nijiht. Lecture. From Saturday's Daily. The lecture under the auspices of the V. M. C. A. last night was a successful affair and was the first event of this kind that has been in the city this win ter. The hall was tastefully decorated, was well filled, there being about two hundred present. The lecture was the chief attraction, as the subject was one of the most important now upon the public mind. The lecturer, Hon. Chas. 11. Peeve, discussed the Monroe Doc trine, its origin and its present applica tion to our own country and Oreat Brit ain. His talk was closely followed throughout. Many of Mr. Peeve s old friends who had heard him on various public issues for years back were pre sent. At the close of the lecture a song was rendered, and brief talks were made by Judge Capron, Mr. Cilmore, Mrs. Har riet Ault, Mrs. II. (J. Thayer and Presi dent Hedil, attesting their appreciation of the occasion, which the V. M. C. A. was giving for the benefits of its mem bers and the people of Plymouth. Acknowledgment. To Tin: Daily Iilti-:nif.nt: The Press Superintendent of W. C. T. U. desires to make public acknowledg ment of the kind favors extended to her by our honored citizen, C. 11. Heeve, it the receiving of two complimentary tickets to the lecture given by himself before quite a select and cultured audi ence in the V. M. C. A. hall on Friday evening. The subject was one of inter est to the public citizens of the present day. It was handled with ability and in a clear, concise manner, everyone present being able to fully understand the doctrine referred to, references running back of the Monroe admin istration for fifteen or twenty years, including over sixty years of the past history o! our government. When we remember Mr. Reeve's age, it is a source of wonder to us, his remarkable rententive memory, to be so explicit in explaining the con ditions existing at the time of the Mon roe administration, and a close scrutiny down the line to the present adminis tration. It certainly was an intellectual feast to the young men of the Young Men's Christian Association. Pklss Sit't. Subscribe for the Ixdltedent.
