The single standard democrats of the state of Indiana who have been laughing at the efforts of their free sil ver brethren have awakened to the fact that there is something in those efforts and will call a meeting to be held in Goshen in the near future to devise some means of turning the tide of pub lic opinion. TWIN LAKKs. April 21, lS'JG. Rev. Rothenberger will preach at this place next Sunday at 2:30. Miss Tyrone JJeldon entertained a select few at dinner last Sunday. Miss Lowry and a gentleman friend from Rutland attended church at Triiity Sunday night. C. II. and Dora Grube visited at Mr. Sherwood's, last Sunday. Mrs. Samuel Clapp is yet quite poor- iy. . Tro of our young men have made an agreement not to shave their 'upper Up' prior to July 4th, by which time it is predicted they can appear in such a way that the "new woman'' can never reach. Miss Rna Strahecker writes that she is well pleased with the country in which she recently located. A Mr. Wright hai moved into the Lawrence property which was recently vacated by Mr, English. One of our fair sex spent the greater part of last Sunday in preparations to make a "mash" on a certain person whom she had never seen before, but to her sorrow when seeing him to find him an old bald headed geatleman. The mash was dropped. Some of our young people ara meet ing with good success in the way of subscription gor the purpose of buying a clock for the Twin Lake Sunday school. Mr. and Mrs. A. Miller entertained Tisitors for a few days the fore part of of the week. William Hampton, of Plymouth, call ed on his cousin, Wm. Nichols, last Sunday, making the trip on his wheel. For the benefit of the public I would say that the assistant post master of this place is not at his place of duty on Sunday, as he has of late been else where engaged from early Saturday night until late Sunday night. There seems to be great attractions at this place for pedagqgues from and near Donaldson. J. W. Nichols made a business trip to South Rend last week at which time he bought a good supply of men's hats which are attracting much attention in our hustling city. Mrs. Susie White visited at this place last Tuesday. A small strip of wheat covering one of Mose Holm's choice lots which faces Main street is in a poor condition owing to the severe tramping it received last fall duridg the erection and removing of the public office. Miss Milla Sherwood will preside at the organ the night of our commence ment. Surely the committee on music have done well in securing her aid for the occasion. Some person with 'but little respect for himself and less for others has done some writing on the church, concern ing a lady and gentleman in our com munity. If the person or persons who did this writing can be found out they will not be dealt with lightly. Dr. Viets was called Monday and Tuesday to see the infant daughter of Lafayette Sours which was quite sick. It is much better at this writing. A. A. Miller informs U3 that his daughter, Lizzie, is now. the wife of Fred Collins, of Green Hay, Wis. The West township teachers bad a business meeting at the Fertig school- house Wednesday evening for the pur pose of making arrangements for the commencement which will be held at the Twin Lakes church Saturday night May, 9th. Messrs Holloway, Miller and White, ot Plymouth, should bear in mind that this is leap year and that they could never get Twin Lake ladies to accom pany them to ice cream festivals on Saturday night, by only giving them a moment of warning. The three gentlemen surely enjoyed the drive however. A FRENCH SQUIRE. nil Coteljr Velvet Cape, Cilovea and Ter fumes. The squire's shoes were of a very plain and solid make, little better than those provided for his laborers; and such was his economy that he bought leather and had them resoled by a cob bler living at the chateau, says the Gentleman's Magazine. He was much more particular about his headgear. Felt hats were brought by sea from Rouen to Cherbourg. Gomberville paid 25 francs for his own, while those of his servants were not more than a third of that price. Hi3 rich velvet cape cost nearly 40 francs. The squire had a peculiar weakness for perfumes, which he distilled on the spot, such as rose water, Damascus water, "eau a la node," etc., and he did not think it beneath his dignity to go and gather the pinks at a neighboring monastery. He was also very fastidious with re gard to his gloves, and would pay 12 francs a pair for them. A word may be added as to the arrangements for the table at the chateau. The flour was ground and the bread made at home, although wrhen there was not time to do so a loaf of twelve pounds would be bought from the baker for 3 francs. He paid a higher price when he expected friends, and especially the cure of Cherbourg, who was somewhat of an epicure. There is littte said about pastry, except ttie "gateau des rois," so essential to the festivities of Twelfth Night or Epiphany. The des serts consisted of cheese, honey, fresh and dried fruits, oranges and grenades from the south, with a great variety of wines. Generally the preference was given to solid food. Sometimes oxen and sheep were slaughtered at home. sometimes choice morsels were bought at the town, and wonderfully cheap they were. On one occasion the half of a calf and a pound of candles were pur chased for 5 francs. Kids were much in request for special entertainments. Pork was then, as now, a favorite ar ticle of diet among the peasants. One day, when going to the chase, he rose at 4 o clock and breakfasted on pork and herring himself. The fact speaks well for his digestive powers unless he had reason to repent of the indul gence. Special luxuries were occasion ally provided at 'ids table, as when the servant of a neighbor brought him an Indian cock and hen he was so pleased that he gave the messenger a pour- boire of 4 francs. This little circum stance is not without interest, as show ing thai the turkey was not then un known in France, and throwing doubt on common tradition that this bird was first introduced there by the Jesuits and served at the royal table of Charles IX, 1571. Fish appears often on the squire's board, as his chateau was near the sea, and the rivers also furnished a good supply. BERRY'S HENS WERE SLEEPY. Kode Seventeen Miles 1'ercihed on a Wagon Keacb Without Waking- From the Portland Press: Linn Ber ry has a big chicken farm in West Bux ton, and has several hundred hens. He brings many eggs and chickens (dead and dressed) to Portland. He loads his wagon the night before and starts at 3 a. m. He has only to hitch up the horses and drive o'i. It is a drive of seventeen miles to this city. He reached here at just about sunrise. As he approached tbe United States hotel to deliver some produce someone shout ed at him and asked him If he had brought his hen? to market roosting on the crossbar vnder the wagon. He paid no attention, supposing the man was guying him. But when he stopped at the hotel and others called his at tention to four hens roosting under the wagon and just waking up, it was doubtful whidh was the most aston ished, Mr. Berry or the hens. Two of the latter were panic stricken and started down Federal street. One was caught on Temple street and the other got down almost to Exchange street before it was carvured. The cook at the hotel bought the four hens for $1 and took them home. How many hens were asleep under the wagon when Mr. Berry started from home he can't tell. but It is very possible that there were more than four. The Postal Staff and the Cats. The cats are invariably treated with great kindness by the postal staff. Kit tens are born in all sorts of odd cor ners, even occasionally under a desk or table in the sorting office. One cat has successfully reared during the present year a family of six in the reg istered letter department, but this, vf course, Is exceptional. They are gen erally born in the kitchens, as there are plenty of old wornout coats about which make a comfortable bed. As eoon as they are old enough some one requiring a cat takes one home to the domestic hearth. There is often a keen struggle for their possession and a man will feed both mother and kit ten on milk and watch them with an anxious eye, only to find in the end thaA he is a day too late, someone havinp forestalled him and quietly disappeared with the coveted pet.

A Russian steamer, hailing from Odessa, says the Savannah News, has for some time been engaged in the Med iterranean trade, principally carrying passengers between Leghorn and Mal aga. On one of the recent trips it en countered an adventure which will nev er be forgotten by either the crew or the passengers. The passage had been a stormy one, but the day of the occur rence was unusually fine. Though a rather heavy sea was running, most of the passengers were on deck. Suddenly the lookout called: "Hurricane cloud leeward." At once there was great consterna tion aboard and a number of people sought safety below. The captain, how ever, after glancing at the barometer, gave it as his opinion that it was no hurricane cloud. The black mass that they saw hovering near the horizon was, he thought, a particularly dense vol ume of smoke from some steamer. But the solution of the mystery came much sooner than they had expected. The threatening mass grew larger and larger and soon was seen to bear down in the direction of the vessel with ter rific speed. Everybody, both crew and passengers, became frightened at the mysterious cloud, which seemed to move with great rapidity, notwith standing that a perfect calm prevailed. Then came the solution. The vast cloud that they had seen was composed of swallows. The forerunners, a small detachment of some 10,000, swooped down on the deck, to the bewilderment on the people on board. These were soon followed, not by thousands, but by hundreds of thousands. The birds literally overwhelmed the vessel. The man at the wheel lost his bearings and the wildest disorder prevailed. The birds poured into every available open ing, hatchways, windows, and every where else. They got tangled in the ropes and sails and clustered about the rigging. Even the smokestack was so filled up at one time that the fires were nearly extinguished. The most amazing part of the whole thing was that the birds did not evince any disposition to leave. To heighten the confusion, the steam er had got out of its course and ran ashore. However, on account of eo- ing very slow, no material damage was done, though the passengers were bad ly frightened. When the crew had re covered from their amazement they began to clear the deck and the vessel in general of those unexpected and not at all welcome guests. The captain ordered the men to use shovels and whatever else they could to throw the birds overboard. After getting fairly in shape the vessel pro ceeded on its voyage, having been de layed for nearly elgnt hours on account of this singular experience. The cap tain could not offer any theory as to where the vast army of swallows came from. All he said was that the birds were exhausted from a long flight dur ing the storm of the previous day and ought rest on his vessel. Streptococcus Pyogenes. Dr. Marmorek. a Viennese physician, now with Dr. Pasteur in Paris, fraa discovered ths bacillus, the presence of which causeä st'ptto diseases. He has named It "Streptococcus pyogenes." and states that it is the active cause of inflamed wounds, rtöultlng sometimes In lockjaw or running sores, "proud flesh' and blood poisoning.
