In Two cur a Yuuu Athlete ISe. oi.ie u lltyi'ul W r-k. We do not desire to have tliose who are in the habit of smoking cigarettes think we are cranky upon the subject. Uut we do know w h it w e are talking about when we condemn the use of this subtle and slow poison. We propose to always raise our voice against this dan' ger, and believe the proper course to pursue is to present "living pictures' as it were. It is but a short time ago since we commenced to call the attention of our readers to this curse, and today we submit No. 7. If these warnings cause one young man to quite the use of cig arettes, we believe we have saved one life. Some two years ago, (!eo. Cavill, of Lansing, Michigan, then 23 years old, of splendid physique and an athlete of con siderable ability, commenced smoking I cigarettes, and in a year was smoking between four and live boxes each day. He was attaekd by spells of dizziness, but gave the warning no heed. Some months ago he was forced to take to Iiis bed, from which he never arose, death occuring last week. From the beginning of his illness he suffered in tense agony, most of his tongue siouh ing otT and the inner lining of the stom ache beirg almost wholly destroyed. A rieHHMiit A Hair.

The lecture was very in teresting. 1'roin Mri;i;i. A letter received from F. Croup, who a short time ago went to Fitzgerald, Ca., is full of interesting news of that section of the country. It seems, ac cording to C. F. a little dillicult to fall in line with the natives after a sojourn for so many years in Iloosienlom. The natives in that section are called 'Crackers," and although they can tell a notherner several blocks away they designate them as "Yanks." Fitzgerald is a town of some ."iooo population now, and out a few months ago was without any repre sentation as a town. The weather is exceedingly tine, and Croup says he is satislted with the change. Ankle llrukeii. Word was received Tuesday that Ceo. Wallace, an aged resident of tins county living six miles south of this city, had met with a serious misfortune by having Iiis ankle broken at the joint. Mr. Wallace was assisting removing a wagon box and in some way twisted it in such a manner as to produce the result above spoken of. Dr. Knott at- j tended the patient. A New .feulery limine. Mr. C.

A. and guests, to the number of ir0 gathered in Association hall last night to do hon or to the school teachers of our city. Teachers to the number of IT were pres ent, and also a goodly number of ex teachers. The hall was decorated with a profusion of Hags, and the stand was covered with plants and llowers. A large palm graced the president's table, (lathered around it at t lie base of tne platform and on tables at the front and sides, other plants of green and llowers of white ami deep carnations nodded and smiled at each other under the electric lights. President Kedd called the guests to onter at 8 o'clock, and stated that this was the teachers' night, that the Y. M. C. A. was in concert with the school, the forum, the pulpit, the press, and all agencies that wrought for the proper expansion of spirit, mind and body; that it recognized in the teacher one of the mightiest educative forces, and that here tonight both could halt for an hour and exchange salut ations and get in closer social touch. The first half of the evening was of a social character with music and recitations by a num ber of the teachers ail of wh eh was much appreciated. President lledd seemed to be an experienced host, and everyone was made to feel welcome. After refreshments, whice were of the bestand well supplied, the audience was called to order ami the 1 'resident presented a circular lette r sent out trom Chicago, addressed to all organi zations, asking that an expression be taken and forwarded to the proper com mittee, upon the folowing questions: t. Do we wish the governments of the I'nited States and tJreat P.ritain, by for mal treaty, to establish arbitaration as the method of concluding al! ditl'eran ces which may fail of settlement by diplomacy between the two powers? 1. What is our opinion of war as a made of deciding controversies be tween the I'nited States and (real P.ritain? Fxpressions were given by Messrs. C. 11. Reeve, li. (i. Thayer, Prof. Chase and others. The talks were full of line points, and the subject proved a most profitable one with which to occupy a part of the evening. During further discussions a motion was carried that a committee, to consist of Messrs. C, II. lleeve.J. W. Parks, D. McDonald and Jacob Martin.be appointed to formu late resolutions as expressive of the sense of the meeting.

It was rumored on the streets Satur that the linn of N ussbaum Si Mayer had assigned. It was but a short time after wards tint a reporter of Tin: Indk pkx iu'.nt discovered the actual facts in the case. The firm has been unfortun ate for some time, owing, to a large ex tent, t the continued illness of Mr. N ussbaum, who at the present time is very ill. When the linn realized their position, they at once made preparations to se cure their creditors. They proceeded to give a mortage for 817,2K) to the First National l!ank and other creditors, the mortgage upon property which invoices some J?'il0o0. The people of Plymouth truly sym pathize with this old established firm of some thirty-live years standing and it is beleived that they will in time easily meet every dollar of their obliga tions.

ANOTHER "SCRAP." A ;;r itiiiiitoti.tn Caused Ity Too Mut li Liquor and a lelii t Filit. For some time it seems there has been bad blood between two parties in Plymouth, and on several occasions the peace of our community has been dis turbed by bloody ami noisy brawls. Saturday night it seems these two factions were making the rounds, the principle actors being Fred (Ireenburg on one side, and Lib Cross and Will Schroder on the other. The row ac tually commenced on Laporte street, where it is is said (Ireenburg gently tapped (toss on the nose. The final scene occured in the alley back of P.ar ney Oeker's saloon, where an attack upon (ireenburg was made by Cross and Schroder who it is said used brick bats and stones, and no doubt would have commiied murder if not separated. It is said that no effort was made to separate them until Ira Lower appeared upon the scene, and his efforts did not prove elleetive until he secured a revol ver. Then he arrested Cross and Scho der and put them in jail. They were arranged on a charge of asault and battery with intent to kill, but the latter clause in the accusation has been striken out so as to give (ireen burg an opportunity to prosecute them when ho is able to get out. It is said that he is very badly injured, and for a while it was thought internally. The trial is set for the loth. Tin: lMi:rr.Nii:NT does not desire in jNpeai.. narsniy 01 any omeer id this city, but if the reports are true, night watchman Henne'J, was present when the light was m progress and did not oiler to interfere until Lower came up. While we have the greatest respect for Mr. iennett,and believe him an excel lent man in every respect, yet we do not believe he is the man for the posi tion he now occupies. Mr. Bennett is a man who does not grapple with that kind of characters, and we believe our council should put a man in the posi tion of night watchman who will handle this tough element without gloves. The reputation established by Cross and Shroder need not be mentioned by I'iii: I N'D r.i'KN hknt, for they are too well known and for the benefit of all law abiding citizens they should receive the full benefit of the law. Lib Cross, who was connected with Saturday night's trouble, says the light was caused by (ireenburg striking him without provocation; that he was on his way home when he met the big lighter, who hit him. lie says he does not desire to bear the blame for the misdemeanors of his brother, whose reputation as a "scrapper" has been placed on his shoulders. In the Toil. Charley Linkenhelt has again placed himself in the clutches of the law by an eiTort to siash things in Mike Speisshofer's saloon Monday night. It is said that Fred (ireenburg, who figured in Saturday night's light, was with him and narrowly escaped being arrested. Liukenhelt's trial occurred yesterday afternoon. It is time these nightly turmoils were stopped, and there should be no "let up by the ollicers of the law until those who create these disturbances are com pelted to cease this imposition upon the law-abiding citizens of our city. If man does not want to be classed with law-breakers, he should steer clear of their company, for if, like poor "Dog Tray," they are found associating with those who create strife, they must ex pect to receive condemnation.

JJrooke of the 'lymouth Kepubliean called the meet ing to order and proceeded to do busi ness along republican lines. Major Kendall was chosen as temp- porary chairman, and Mr. Ilrooke secre tary. Mr. Kendall said there was not hue for speech making, and that they should proceed to business. At that juncture a preamble was read, which bristled with republican ideas. It was unanimously adopted. A motion was made by .1. V. Parks, hat the club be known as the ' Itepub- lican Club of Plymouth." Kditor lirooke moved an amendment, to the orginal motion, striking out the one word Hepublican and inserting McKinley." V. F.. lJailey thought they should first adopt the preamble then proceed to take a name. Alter the adoption of the preamble, Mr. IJailey said that in his estimation Republican" was the proper name to give the club. While ex-(iovernor Mc Kinley was favored by the greater por tion of those present, to be the standard bearer of the party, he .lid not think it advisable to name the club after him. He therefore moved that it be named "The Republican Club of Center Township," instead of Plymouth. Hrooke moved the old amendment, the inserting the name of McKinley in stead of Republican. The amendment was lost by a decided vote. The or lgnal motion prevailed. The club then proceeded to elect ollicers. The name of Upton Schilt was offered for the posit ion of president of the club. lie was unanimously elect ed. (Ieo. (iross was elected secretary. A finance committee consisting of Y I. Kankin, 1). L. Dickinson and .J. W, Parks was elected, who will have charge of the working end of the club. . Johnson was afterwards elected vice president. To make a progressive movement, a collection was taken up, after which some republican thoughts were present ed by A. Johnson, .1. W. Suier, Judge Hess, W. K. lJailey, .1. W. Parks and Hon. M. W. Simons. J. A. Yockey, of Polk township was call upon and talk ed a few moments along the line of Re publicanism. It was decided to hold the next meet ing next Friday evening, the place of meeting to be announced later. When the call for signers was made some sixty names were enrolled. A Compliment.

ESCAPED FROM JAIL TRANSFORMATION SCENE AT THE COUNTY 13 AS TILE. rim-. Henry. Who Wan 1 n ttr et ated for vtealiujr h llat. and A No Held itut-. Makes His IN ape. ft Ever .since the late unpleasantness when the representative of Southern Confederacy took a notable trip in peticoats, it has been 'considered de grading for a man to be discovered with woman's apparel on. Uut it seems, according to the evidence secured, that Chas. Henry, w ho made his escape from the county jail Friday night,had no such scruples. As near as we can learn, the facts are these: Friday evening a sister of Ilenrv called at the jail to see him, as had been her custom since his incarceration. Shortly afterward another lady, who was sup posed by the jail authorities to be the sweetheart of Henry, also desired to see him. She was aiso admitted. The old gentleman who acts as turn key claims when they desired to leave the jail the two went out together, lie that as it may; upon investigation it was found that Henry had made good his escape. The only feasible grounds as to how he made his escape is, that in the upper part of the building, where he was confined, no light is burning; ami the turnkey being an old man, and the hallway dark, it is conceded an easy matter for the prisoner to slip by. Another theory is, that one of the women was let out by one. of those con nected with the jail, and that was Henry. When the others desired to go out and Cue old man opened the door, the two women walked out. Sheriff Smith feels very keenly the position m which he is placed and will not spare time or money to put his prisoner behind the bars again. Chas. Henry was arrested last New Years day for Mealing a hat, and, although he desired to be tried during the last term of court and intended to plead guilty, yet the necessary papers . were not tiled the reason being that they desired to hold him as a witness against the men now in jail awaiting trial for the robbery of the liergner store at Donaldson. Sulleii I .! h of Mr. .ImcoI Kitar. Rourbon Mirror: The startling an nouncement was made about the noon hour yesterday that Mr. Jacob Rtvar, an agetl and highly respected farmer residing about four miles west of this place, had suddenly expired. Mr. Kivar, it is ail, had not been in good health for a few days, but had been able to be out doors a short time before he died, that on coining into the house he hid laid down and when one of the family went to give him his medicine found that his life was extinct.

Not hutisiicd with the exhibition made of themselves at the opera house Thursday night two of the "stars" connected with the Howorth aggrega tion got into a little altercation at the Windsor hotel Friday morning. A lively tilt was experienced for a short time. The cause of this little unpleas antness is said to have originated through one of the male members of the company having a date with some girl in Plymouth, and the other fellow "heat his time' and took the held.
