We trust that our people will do everything they can to encourage the lecture course managed by Prof. Pigdon. It •hould be remeinbered that the person who undertakes to serve the people in this way has a hundred dfficulties to overcome, and many hundred people, of different temperaments; to please.

After the regular skating the band started up with a waltz and all the young people took part. Rink closed at ten o'clock. "World Making"—A scientific lecture, explaining the Birth of Worlds, their growth. Maturity, Death and Destruction—a literal translation of the gospel of the skies. Yet this lecture is adapted with wonderful skill to popular audiences, it will be delivered this (Thursday) evening at the Danville courthouse by Its author, Hon. Samuel Phelps Leland. , During the series of sermons which the ,pastor of the Christian Church has been delivering, and will continue to deliver for some nights to come, he invites all persons who are sincerely seeking information on the subject of Christianity, to propound any question on which they are really and earnestly seeking more light, and he will give attention to the question, either privately or publicly, as the querist may desire. "Squire" Walters and Quart Rust, Jr., had a rough-and-tumble fight in jail last Sunday night, in which Rust came out best. During the cold weather two of the boys generally sleep in the cell, and Walters, having got in first, concluded he would allow no one else to come in. Rust undertook to invade the cell, and a fight resulted lasting several minutes. Sheriff Bryant appeared on the scene and stopped it. The Blue Lodge of F. and A. M. held their annual election last Tuesday night, with the following result: O. E. Nichols, W. M.; J. W. Beck, S. W.; A. N. Towles, J. W.; W. J. Robinson, Treas. Geo. C. Harvey, sec.

Harlan, stewards; Rev. J. H. Hull, Clajilin; J; -Bi Barton, Tyler and ;D. W. Hawkins, organist. Deputy U. S. Marshall, Wm. B. Tucker, Jr., late of Ft. Worth, Texas, was murdered on the 8th instant by a man named Boswell. He was shot in the back in the most cowardly manner. The murderer is under arrest, and the father of the victim, William B. Tucker, Sr., has employed the best legal talent to prosecute the slayer of his son. The father is an uncle to Dan Tucker, of Danville. Uncle Dan had another cousin shot and killed in Kentucky recently, while in the act of quelling a mob, as deputy sheriff of Casey County. His name was Charles R. Tucker. Wm. Stewart, better known as "truant Wallie, the Sunday fisher," tells a goose story that has a tendency to paralyze the oldest inhabitant. He says he bought a goose on Monday belore Thanksgiving, and after weighing it, fastened it to a broad board, and placed before it a peck of shelled corn. The goose was not released until it had eaten all of the corn. And on weighing it Thursday morning the goose had gained in flesh just six pounds. Now, this is a goose story, and we suppose after it was cooked it must have-made a barrel of gravy or enough to swim itself. Next. Some little boys who were in the woods Thanksgiving Day afterward told that they were met by a party of young men from Danville, one or two of whom undertook to frighten the lads by pointing shot-guns at them. If this is true, we hope the next grand jury will catch the miscreants and recommend for them the severest possible punishment. The habit of pointing guns at people is a dangerous and murderous sport, and the law properly defines the act as a misdemeanor. Many an innocent person has met death as the result of this idiotic practice; and yet there are smart Alecks who do it every time they get gun or pistol in their hands. The act should be defined as criminal and punished accordingly. Hannibal Morning Journal: The au-dience room of the Christian church was filled last night with eager listners to Rev. Mr. Chase, who delivered an eloquent ser mon upon "Faith." The main thought in the sermon was that faith consisted simply in believing that Jesus Christ was the Son of the Living God, and that he had lived, been crucified and risen from the dead. The sermon was clear and logical as well logical, and was pronounced by all who heard it a masterpiice. Mr. Chase's meetings are grow^g in interest, and in attendance, and last night his effort was rewarded by one confession of Christ He preaches to night upon "Repentance." "The public is cordially invited to attend these meetings. Now is the time to advertise lor Christmas trade. Look out for ten thousand beautiful Christmas presents at Huston's grocery. Christmas is coming! and Santa Claus will make his head quarters at Huston's grocery. Mrs. J. B. Harlan, who has been lor two weeks very ill with pneumonia, is reported as mending. Charley Howell has bought out Allen & Son and will run a first class grocery at Keetei's old stand. Children ahoy ! Go to Huston's grocery for Christmas toys. We will describe them fully ngxt week. Any of the nuigazines advertised in the Republican may be obtained by applying to John Dunbar, at the City Shoe Store. Thin hair thickened, baldness cured, and gray hair made to return to its youthful color by the use of Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Renewer. Hustons' Grocery, on West Main St., is well stocked with staple goods, and will soon be brilliant with a rare display of Christmas toys of every description. Prof. Rigdon informs us that Hon. Samuel Phelps Leland will deliver an address at the College Chapel at i :30 p. m. to-day; admission, 15 cents. Those who hear him will be sure to attend his lecture to-night. It is wise to provide against emergencies which are liable to arise in every family. In sudden attacks of cold, croup, asthma, etc.. a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral will prove a never ftiil-ing remedy. The last year's minutes of the Teachers' Association represented Dr. T. W. Johnson as saying in his lecture delivered on that occasion, "that immortality is a myth." Tnere is not a word of truth in this, the leading purpose of that fine lecture being an effort to prove just the contrary. The false entry ought to have been corrected. We know that certain preparations of cereals are best adapted for certain morbid conditions of the infantile system, and that others are of therapeutic value in specific diseases. We also know what is the best general type of food for little folks. Many articles in the market may approach this type, but that which comes nearest is Mellin's Food. Newton M. Taylor sold his residence to Samjjel Williams and left last Monday for Philadelphia, where he will engage in the publication ol a new law journal, to be known as The National Law Review. His family will remain here and at Terre Haute for several weeks, before bidding farewell to their Indiana friends. In losing Mr. Taylor, Danville will be deprived of one of its best citizens. He is an at-torner of ability and principle, and was as popular a man as ever lived in the county. He came within a very few ballots of receiving the nomination for representative of Hendricks County at the Republican conveniioa of ielS6. His larnii)' are highly respected here, and his excellent wife will be much missed by her neighbors. Everybrdy wishes them happiness and prosperity in their new home. A new broOiTi sweeps clean, but an old remedy that is reliable in practice is better than all theoretical new ones. Warner's Log Cabin Hops and Buchu Remedy is an old-fashioned household medicine.

The Indiana Farmer will be seat the balance bt this year free to yesrly flub-«cribers. tf.. Conducted by the Ladies ol the W. C. T. U.Deacon License to the Sunday School. His pastor held up high license; the deacon, as superintendeat of the Sunday School, gravely inquired : " Why not teach it to the children? As the old trees are bent why not incline the twigs.?" So he look the glowing sermons and translated them into his homespun style the little folks could readily understand, as follows: "Dear boys and girls, you know it's very naughty to to driuk beer and whisky; so, too, it's naughty tf> sell them without a license, o»* with a cboap license; but when the State orders high license, and the town makes every saloon-keeper pay his'$500 out of what he gets for making drunkards, of course you see as easy as rolling off a log how it isn't naughty any longer to 8.^)1 beer and whisky, but a real nice, respectable businpss, like selling sugar or hymn-books. You knotv, too, that yourcare-ful pap.as don't like to have a §50saloon close by their stores, but with a $500 oue each side they know that all good folks will like to buy things of them. So when bad fellows driuk aad avvear and fight and roll into the gutter 'fore the high-li saloon, your high-li pas know that's a blessing, and they must thank God every day that blessings fall so thick about them. You see it all clear, don't you, children? If not, you must be patitnt, and remember that some day your eyes, like pa's, will see things as you want 'em to. Of course your mamas never visit the wife of the $50 saloon-keeper; but quick as he grows so respectable that he pays his town $500 a year as its share of what he takes from the drunkard and the drunkard's wife and babies, why then, sure, your mamas go right over and visit his wife, finding her 'just lovely' and asking her home to tea, don't they? You see a change of $450 in license works a great change of heart and manners in the rumseller and all his family; at S50 he's a brute, at $500 a gentleman. Why, don't you remember iLa.1. a lew years ago sixty-four Chicago preachers prayed to the legislature for high license and got it? And don't you know that now, in higp-li Chicago, the saloons are so 'restrained' that nobody drinks to excess; that the police courts are closed, the jail to rent, anci 'nr-i^ic asylum kept for Prohibitionists? You keep on seeing il, don't you, children? May be, though, you don't see why, if its awful wicked for a $50 liopnao to fill a man's boots with snakes, \his heart with double fists, and send him home to pound his wife and kick his little folk«—if this it! ftwfiil wiiiWarl mpv Vie you don't see how it's all fair and respectable for a $500 license to do the same thing. But it'll come clear to you when you grow up, and read the Bible that side up, as some men do now. Then you'll see that what's all wrong standing alone, is all right standing on $500. May be, too, you don't now quite see how, if it's wrong to drink liquors at any license, it's right as can be to sell them at any license. But when you get big, an' study the 'conomy of gov-'ment you'll see how the country gets $100 for every fellow it kills with drink 'revenue from the saloon ;' an' you'll hear how it's sweet to be killed for one's country. 'Revenue,' you- see, takes the sin out of temptation. One thing more, sweet ones: Dou't forget what a help high-li is to poor towns. Why, quite often it builds thena a jail and fills it. Isn't that real good of it? A poor house, too, and fills it. So if any of you die a drunkard, or his wife, it'll be a great comfort to you to remember that you've paid to support your town and country almost one sixteenth of what they've paid to kill you. You must remember, too, that it s because temperance is wrong that high license is right. It's so much, you see, like prohibition, giving men all the liquor they'll pay for; prohibition not a drop for love or money. So high-li is called a half-loaf-better'n no bread, if 'tis poison. And if some 'crank' calls that ' a lie of the first water,' tell 'em every license is the fast friend of such wnter; it never forsakes a fellow till he'.= iiead. My young friend,you've often b^i n told, too. that of two evils choose the least. Certainly! 'Cause if yeu choose neither, the devil may get miffed and go way off, leavin' you-dreadful lonesome. Now, good-by, children ; and if you want to be constable or go to Congress, and have the taxes collected in a tumbler, don't object to to being ruined, only charge high for it." Thus put, every child, I think, can see the foolishness of high license. And if the child can .see the fooi ia ii, why shonlfl her father want to be that fool? —J, C. Ambrose in Union Signal. ;
