call attention to the event Shortly after 10 oclock the baud started for the addition on College Hill followed by a procession of car riages containing investors and men and boys on foot Almost four hundred people were present when Auctioneer Flanagan started the sale A few pieces of personal property were sold first and then began the sale of lots The crowd proceeded to each lot and saw at every sale what they wercjbiding1 upon The prices were low considering the excellent bar gains offered but after awhile the bidding grew better Meanwhile the band sat under a shade tree close to the lunch

70 for SSO He took the second too at SI05 A full list of the lots sold cannot be given at the present writing Mr Hogle is to be com plimented for his earnest ellort toward arousing interest in Logansport real estate Ap preciating the Daily Reporter as the leading advertising medium he spent more than S100 in advertising in two weeks and the result was such as to prove strong encourage ment toward the future in real estate Hogles addition is a very important one to the city and there is little doubt of a rapid rise in prices Those who got in on the ground floor today will have reason to congratulate themselves in the near future With the ex tension of the street car line to the limits of the city the rise in values will be very rapid because the ad dition is not over a mile from the court house Record Day Died This for One John H Brown died at 7 oclock last evening at his home on Elm street from the effects of one ounce of Paris Green taken with suicidal intent The deadly poison got in its work when the victim seemed to be almost out of danger and appar ently recovering His demise was peaceful not being marked by any of his struggles earlier in the day The physicians attempting to save his life were met with every ob stacle Brown declaring he would die and refusing to take any anti lote He was forced to submit to medical treatment however and though his stomach was washed out repeatedly after death the poison was found in the lining of his stomach and throughout the entire body The deceased was twentysix years of age and a member of the Cigarrnakers union

Come in Detroit the editor of the Reporter noted the fact that both Barnum Bailey and Ringling Bros great circuses were posted to appear in that city on very close dates in August This looks some thinglike a circus war and on that account has some bearing ou the circus situation in Logansport While Barnum Bailey have been advertised for some time no date has been fixed and it is very likely that the circus vill fall somewhere between the 20th and the last of August It is thought that the reason why they are delaying the announcement of their date is in order to watch the progress of the Kingling Bros circus and thus be prepared to beat them in It is very likely that Logansport will get both circuses this year on account of the antagonism between them DR PRICES LEG BROKEN Bad Accident
