W. Smith. It now transpires that Elder W. A. Blake, who suddenly left here for the West about two week? ago, was compelled to leave by the irate father of a young lady of Stilesville. to whom the lecherous elder made ba^ proposals. When the young lady's fcither learned icts he came to Danville with and wamei Blake to'^quit.''

Harmon, the man who was cut and stabbed by Smith Jones, at Clayton, is still in a rather dangerous condition. His wounds are serious, and while he is likely to recover if some unexpected complication dosen't arise, It would not be strange if the shock would yet cause his death. Elder A. J. Frank sustained a painful injury in one of his knees a fei^daysago. He was attempting to climb over a high picket fence, and his foot caught between two pickets, suspending him till relieved a minute later. He thinks he wiÙ be able to attend to his church duties next Sunda)^ Bowen Bros, have secured the services of Frank McVey as trainer the Driving Park. 'Mv. McVey is recognized by good horsemen as one of the best traii»ers in the cotxntry, and as a colt handler he has few equals. We are informed that they are prepared to take a few outside horses to handle this fall. A terrible sensation is leaking out of the details of the recent M, E. Conference. It appears that •'Rev." Pettit, who preached here during the revival last season is strongly suspected of having poisoned; his wife to death with stiychnine a few months ago. Also, that he has since been li\nng with a courtesan. The scoundrel was quietly warned to leave the conference and quit the pulpit. He Report ofWater-WorksCoBiÉfee Sent to Greeiicastle Angnst 19lh, 1SS9, Read at a Regnlar Meeting of the Danrille Town Coim-cil, Sept. 6, 1SS9. Pursuant to the orders ot the Board, William Daggy and Isaac Piersol were selected as a part of the committee to examine and investigate in reference to water works. The committee thus constituted visited Greenca.stle on Monday, the 19th day of August for that purpose. We found that Greencastle, so far as we are capable of judsfing, has a very efficient system of water works costing in the neighborhood oi $ 100,000. That they {¡fet their water from Big Wahiut about two miles from the ciiy. That they raise it from the well through a twelve-inch main, by two powerful engines, to a standpipe situated in the highest part of the city. The standpipe being twenty-two feet m diameter and 140 feet high, and standing on ground about forty feet higher than the business part of town, which gives them a pressure at that point of about iSo feet. We found that the water was conducted from this twelve-inch main and from the standpipe through^ ten, eight and six-inch mains to all parts of the city, generally there being a main about every other street with an occasional • one along the cross streets and in all cases some one of the mains were connected at the ends so as to lorm a complete from the college, and is getting or expecting to get $600 from the 1. & St. L. R. R. and $500 from the Monon, yet the superintendent told us that the cornpany was not making expenses and interest on her bonds. G. W. Reichard, T. J, Gofer, Isaac Piersol, William Daggy. Com, did so; and the gallows is thus far | circuit and leave no dead ends as they He has skipped the j ^re called. We are infor|ned that these dead, cheated, coufatry. Mr. F. E. Sturgis, crayon artist, has been doing some elegant work in Danville and other neighboring tow^s... He recently finished a portrait of the late F. Ml Davis, of North Salem, iu liquid crayon, which brought from^the relatives of the deceased a letter tull of ratitude and congratutations. d'-s. Davis, among other gratiful expressions, said: "It is an ideal crayon portrait. We cannot imagine a more natural likeness." Mr. Sturgis is located in the old Mansion House rooms. In Danville our public school accommodatians are simply barbarous. In several rooms there are more pupils than seats and most of the rooms are so crowded as to render them very unwholesome. It is the refinement of cruelty to treat innocent children in this way. All this trouble arises from the lack of school funds. Yet Danville has more rich men in it than the average county seat. It is plain that^there is something rotten somewheie. The assessors lists should be overhauled. The new schOv-»! books are gradually coming in. Supt. Gossett received last week a shipment for Eel i^iver township, marked to "Henderson county. Ind." The box had taken the rounds of the State. When opened it was found that lifteen first readers, five element-ary geographies and fifty com-Ifte geographies were short. Co copy-books came with that shipment. Several of the books were badly soiled and unfit for use. Last Monday the copy-books arrived. Up to this week'most of the townships are not supplied. The schools of the county have been dragging along for two weeks. Sam Moore, sr.. returned from Glasgow, Iowa, where he has been for ten days, attending a reunion of his regiment, the 30th Iowa Infantry, He saw his comrades together for the first time since the war. He found only 130 sur-viors of the regiqaent, eleven of his own company, and three officers. Uncle Sam had a glorious time with the boys. He relates some remarkable facts about his regiment —or rather reaanant of it. Of the 130 survivors - only one drinks Hguor, and he is a Democrat During his stay with Ae regiment Sam nev;er heard a single oath or improper word spoken. The solitary pemixTaticsiirvivor, he says, was a gppd soldier, but he declined to meeti mdi 6is comrades at zei^on. ;' / ^ I- < , - ~ ^... ends, as they are called, containing nothing but dead water, invariably fill up with mud, and even when they aae clear of mud, that the water not being allowed to form a current, does not give the pressure that is obtained when the water can escape into other mains. The unanimons verdict was liave no dead ends; that they would not do. We foimd that the city had. contracted with the water works company for eighty-five hydrants for which they agreed to pay the company $4,500 or $53 apiece, to secure the city against fire, which were located At intervals of 400 or ^00 feet, that for protection between these hydrants and along the cross streets, and on streets having no mains on them they rely upon conducting the water through hose, of which they have 1500 feet. The fire department informed us that there was a loss of pressure equal to ten per cent for every 50 feet of hose through which the water was carricd, rendering the service iess cfficiont the farther you were removed from the fire plugs. We learned that hose cost from S5C to $1.10 per foot; that it is insured to last ©ae year but with considerable repairing it might be made to last for three years with careful handling and drying out after every use; that in order to utilize the water from the hydrants it would require 1000 feet of hose and a hose reel and a place to keep it and some one to look after it. We find Greencastle to be a city of 5000 or 6000 population with a valuation of $2,500,ooo,a tax paying capacity of nearly five times that of Danville. The water works company furnish water free to the fire department, the city offices, the public schools and four public drinking places for man and beast, one public fountain, and water for the purpose of flooding the sewers and gutters. We found the people generally spoke favorably ot the water works and the service they rendered, thii> can be accounted for to some extent from the fact that the cit} was compelled to rely to great extent upon cisterns, for her water supply. Be-wde the $4,500 the company receives from the dty/it gets, $6ckq from tiie 'Vandalia K, ^^ and considerable Now a few suggestions ot my ewn: the town of Danville has less tr.an $600,000 taxable property. The highest amount that can be assessed and collected for tlie expenses of the town is fifty cents on the $100,which %vill produce less than $3,000 of revenue. We now have an assessment of thirty-five cents and can barely get along with that, to pay for lighting streets, improvements and other necessary expenses. In fact we havè increased the tax for next year to forty cents, within ten cents of tUe limit in ordei that we might have more revenue for repairing the streets. Now then, it we accept the proposition here offered it will cost us to start with, $1,200, and it we stop here we are in no better condition to fight fire than we are at present, and to make hydrants for which we pay $1,200, ot any value to the town, we are compelled to go tarther and provide hove, a hose reel and some place to keep it, and employ .«onie one to look after and care for it, which will cost the town at least another thousand dollars and will make the expenses for fire protection •ilone $2,200,0r more than two-thirds the utmost limits of the town's revenue. Then the question is present, can the town afford to pay that sum, and how will she procure the means to pay it? It the town accepts this proposition she has either to abandon her streets or to borrow from a thousand to fifteen hundred dollars annually to pa/ for this luxury, and this is the question that is presented to us and the people of the town. : Which will we adopt ?

The organizing of the Sons of Veterans camp took place last Frida}-, The boys, not expecting a turnout of the ditierent camps, were almost at a loss to Mnd room for them, but finally managed to pack them in the G. A. R. Hall w^here they proceeded to the work of mustering in T. W. Blair Capt. of the Col. E. S. Walker Camp, No. 129 of Ft. Wayne, an instituting officer took charge of the meetisg. Not being very many boys in this vicinity, the}"- started with twelve charter memb.^r«, but enough to swell the ranks to 25 or 30 are expected in a short time. The camp was named in honor of Col.

Thi' is a mark of distinction for Dauviile, and shows plainly that Gen. Griffin intends that the new administa-tion shall be conducted on strictly business principles. Capt Homan was at the time of his selection to this high position, the Division Quarter master of the Sons o£ veterans under Col. Ge®. C. Harvey. It was through his well known business qualities and the recomendation of Col, Harvey that ., Capt Homan was selected.
