Fortune» »nit the wotkmab r mk«. iA «noe address Tbvk * Co. Some weeks ago The NewEba noted the fact that the Andrews School Furnitare establishment, of Chicago, had extended an invitation to the the township trustees, school boards, and county superintendent of schools of De Kalb county, to visit the Lake City, and that these servants of the people over there had decided to accept the invitation, and would soon start upon their junketing tour, at the expense of that corporation. In noticing these facts we took occasion to express our views in regard to the matter, and say that if the trustees of Noble were ever favored with such an invitation that we trusted it would be spumed with the contempt that it deserved. Our com -ments were widely copied and favorably noticed by a large number of the newspapers of Noi^em Indiana. We are sorry to say that our advice is not to be hè^ed by these officials, or some of i^em,at least ;yet we write this article, hoping that even at this time it may cause some of them to hesitate before luscepting, and thus placing themselves in a position that some ugly charges that may be made in the future cannot be easily explained or denied. Supmntendent Denny informs us that such an invitation has been received by him, and that it will be accepted by at least himself and some of the trostees, if not by all. Now, our objecti(Hi to tiiis can be stated very concisely in few words. This manufacturing company knows that in the arrangement they will not be the losers, as Uiey have no interest in the matter whatever aside from a pecuniary one. They reaeoD, and correctly, too, that the man who con*; sentsto come to Chicago as theii| guest, and at their expmse, will neo-essarily feel under more or less obligations to them, and with this feeling to operate on his mind, can, when piuchasesof school furniture are be made, easily pursuade hi that the furniture of this estab] meat is equal to, or a liUle su' to that of any other man' The trustee who purchases fkom company, i^ter accepting fv this kind at their hands, is the charge of making such solely in consideration of such and will find it difficult to the minds of the people of that I opinion. Suppose two men were at disagroement, rathw, in a involved a large amount or money, and it was finally that it should be settled by chosen from dbtai^ this agreement was that <«e of the parties pose to the arbttraton thib ti<ni to the fees th^ were by the terms of the party woukl faruiah pOTta^oQ for the trip posai «ma aooepied. party think otherwise than that tiiese arbitrators had acted very nojostly, by accepting such a prc^wsal? L^ our school officers stop and think a moment, and we feel assured thttttiie invitation of this school famitare establishment will be dedined tlmnlrtt. SOMETNIIIC WONDEIFOL In Reffard to DeteotiTe Norrie, the Man who Gi^tured Jack Ryan. The Noble Ck>unty Train Wrecker. J. T. Norris, of Springfield, O., a detective, does a trick that probably no other man in the country can imitata He takes a silver coin, usually a dollar, and places it on his tongue between his teeth. With his tongue he strikes it against the tooth with the sound of a telegraphic instrument, the opening and the closing of the circuit being exactly imitated. Norris used to be an Operator, and by means of the coin can telegraph so distinctly that any telegraph operator can read the message. In this manner he telegraphed fifty words a minuta A Bepublican reporter wrote out a message on a Western Union blank and handed it to the detectiva The two operators in charge at the Southern took down the words as fast as Norris produced them with the coin. The message was rapidly sounded and written down, and all three copies coincided exactly. Mr. Norris can stand up before a telephone and in this novel manner tel^raph a message which any telegrapher can read with great facility. But the most wonderful thing is to see him tel^raph vrith his eyelids. The dots and dashi^s of the telegraphic alphabet he in^-cates by more or less rapid opening and shutting of the eyelids. In this manner he can converse with an expert without uttering a sound.—^JS^x-change. While here working up the 4rain-wrecking case referred to in the headlines of this article, we witnessed an exhibition of Mr. Norris* wonderful skill in telegraphing by the means of a silver dollar placed u^n his tongue. He requested Mr. / Huston, of the Main street drugstore, to write out a message, which was ; done, and in the manner referred t(> above It was rapidly telegraphed to and read by Mr. Frank Copper, B. & O. agent» who stood on the oposite èide of the room. We saw no exhibjition of the eyelid performanee,but have no reason to doubt his efficiency m described, as he is fearfully and/wonderfully "HOT H008IER8." •<k>L BeU. firom HeUviUle,'' is what Jason Brown Characterised Ool.

Never in a d^ocratic national convention since that at Charleeton, South Carolina, in 1860, which broke up in the disruption of the democratic party, has there be^ as much ill feeling and bitterness displayed, as at the convention which was in session at Chie^ja Crimination and recrimination seemed to be the order of the day hi open convention, while behind the aeeesB, in the secret caucus of the iK)v«nl state delegations, the most tttMlNit scenes were enacted, and the most violent language used in leafMBk to the opposing candidate» Md UMir supporters. If the poet was not off his base, in the quotation about the Gods which we have iiUiorporated into the head-lines of this article, then does destruction, complete and overwhelming,await the democracy, and her doom is sealed, as a madder set of men never before were congregated together in a political convention. It seems that even our usually iHppy Hoosiers were not exempt 'lom the infection of madness that ruled the hour, and as an illustration of the general feeling pervading the Convention we reprt^uce from the Indianapolis Journal a passage of "hot" words that passed between that blatherskite, Jason Brown, of the south part of the state, and Col. K M. Johnson, of Goshen. The reporter says that "at an early hour tJiis mormng there was an exciting scene in the Indiana headquarters. Col. Johnson, of Goshen, and Jason B. Brown became involved in a po-itical argument, Brown accusing Johnson of trying to work up a boom for Hendricks instead of McDonald among the Indianians. Both men became much excited and used harsh language, Brown being particularly abusiva 'Who are you, anyhow?' he demanded. 'I am Colonel Johnson, of Goshra^ he answered. I don't care if you are Colonel Hell, from Hellville,' said Jas(xi; •you cur; I will cut your throat' Friend interfered, and such sanguinary results were prevented." JUST THE THING.

The special edition of the B. & O. Bed Book, devoted to the histcny of the Bepublican party and its antecedents, is an almost indispensible jpublication to those at all interested in the develq>ment of the campaign of the year. Qrest <»re is manifest^ in the compilation of data, and while everything is stated in the most concise manner, the information is so clear and explicit as to be readily com^nrehend^ The chapter devoted to the origin of the party and its national outcome from the dismemberment of prior parties is of exceeding interest, as is also the points showing party policy as expressed through Congressional adion. Thecondexu^ proceedings of the national conventions of the various parties from the earliest period of the country's his tory to the present, is of no ordinary value, and it is a thing never befme attempted in such form of publication. Indeed, it would be difiScult to tell all of the important information gathered together and shown so intelligently in this littie book. Those who desire so invaloaUe text-book for handy reference, matters grow interesting, will not delay long in endosing a two-cMit stamp with their address to C. K. Lord, Baltimore, this being the only requisite to secure a ojpy. In addi tion to the data having ¿rect bearing on the one party, there is a vast amount of infcnrmation given as re gards both parties, and with the Bed Book at luuiid no one need be at loss for an authority to settle almost any question in politieal hii^iy whidi may oome npi.
