The affliction has been increasing for some time and it will probably continue until or. Fairl Anks and his associate physicians apply their remedies and then our fellow journalist will suddenly be rid of the disease. For some time editor Bradfute has Licen printing Quot specials Quot from Indianapolis about the Junior senator. Real Are telegraphed to newspapers but Bradfute s Quot specials Quot Are taken red hot from Ordinary envelopes or Are clipped from morning newspapers. Yesterday Beveridge s advertising manager sent a Quot special Quot to the Telephone that the Junior senator would not and could not accept Railroad passes of any kid. The Quot special Quot continued As follows Quot the senator is modest As to this particular distinction and is careful not to advertise the fact that he eschews passes but there Are very few Public men in Washington who do not know what bothers us is How would the Public know about his urfi sing Pas ses if Beveridge did t Tell it. And As for Beveridge s modesty that is the Best joke of the season. If there is a Man in the United states that likes advertising better than any one else that Man is the Junior senator from Indiana. There is one Quality about Beveridge that All must admit and that is his judgment concerning the selection of an advertising manager. The present one is a Dandy. He keeps the world informed in regard to All his chieftain s words and deeds and some of these Quot specials Quot Are so much on t in Barnum style of advertising they Are positively charming.

He will leave Here saturday for Princeton to attend to some parole and will go from there to the school to take up his regular Wark. Not Likely that the Indianapolis Southern will touch Linton. According to civil Engineer Hazel Rigg of the Indianapolis Southern some business men in this City do not want the Indianapolis Southern to change its route to run through Linton because it would cause the line to miss the Midland Coal Fields. Speaking of this matter the Bloomfield Democrat says Quot chief Engineer Hazelrigg of the Indianapolis Southern arrived last night with a corps of men to make the Survey from Here to Linton to decide on the possibility of running the line through that City. While the people of Bloom Field have no objection to the route being changed in fact Many would rather have the Road to go to Linton than Over the other we understand that Many prominent people of Bloomington Are making serious objections. Much of the mining property around Midland is owned by Bloomington capitalists and when they were working to secure the subsidy for the i. S. It was with the tacit understanding that the Road was to make Midland a Point on the line. It is generally understood that if Linton secures the Road they will have to offer the i. S.
