Miss Ida Weimer one of the Young lady operators at the Telephone Exchange was made the victim of a Baniul and Arnost Faul assault last night. She had left the Exchange at 812$, and walked Down Walnut Street to third where she turned into College Avenue. She proceeded Down College Avenue on the Way to her Home which is on the Railroad and the third House South of first Street on the West Side. The girl walked across the old College Campus which was the usual route she Folk wed and when near the Southwest Comer of the grounds and in the full Glare of the first Street electric Light she w3m struck with a a Kory club. The by it a made a two Inch Gash just Over the left ear and Laid Bare the Skull. Miss Weimer wore a heavy Felt hat which probably saved her life. The dub crushed her hat and broke her hat pin. Miss Aheimer had noticed a Man following her when she was on College Avenue. He would quicken his Steps As she walked faster but when the bks a was struck she did one was get a Good party vote to carry Indiana. Her assailant. Marshal Johns and Fiker Morgan at once bin to search for the fiends and traced a couple of Lobos to the Yards and placed them in jail. The tramps were questioned this morning and released after the it ricers were satisfied that neither of them were implicated. Why was miss Weimer so brutally assaulted what was the motive this question is puzzling the officers. The Young lady did not have her pocket Book with her and the pay for her week s work was not due until tonight. Marshal Hohti is the opinion that the brute attacked the wrong person. The Young lady is 33 years old and is a girl of Good character. She has been employed by the Telephone company since last april and has been a splendid operator. Her Mother is dead and she resides with her aged father and step another. She is the Only daughter and has a brother. Miss Weimer Lias passed through the Campus every night since she has been with the Telephone company and was never before molested. It seems strange that her assailant would make his attack in the most open and Best lighted part of the a conservative forecast As to the result of the coming state election is Given in this morning s Indianapolis Sentinel by Louis Ludlow who was recently Here. After having visited every county in the Tate the writer says Quot with the election Only ten Days off it May be stated conservatively that no one can forecast the general result in Indiana. Those Republican leaders like senator Beveridge who have be ii chasing rainbows up and flown the state have no basis whatever for tie claims they arc making. It is Well enough to be candid even in making Liol tical prognostications and Tipul that Republican themselves Are nut taking the Rosy assertions of their leaders at All seriously they Luok us ii or. Beveridge s "30,000 majority Quot pre it fiction and similar forecasts of the Republican state committee As the usual Campaign guff. After visiting a Large majority of the counties in the state and attempting to size up the conditions accurately casting aside political prejudices it is the opinion of the Sentinel correspondent that the democracy is in a fair Way to make gains All along the line Towin in a very considerable number of representative and senatorial districts which Are now in the control of the republicans and to add from one be aia quote Quot a congressmen to Indiana s not know any one was near her.

The experience was s most remarkable one and it came about in this Way on the farm in the Edge of Bloomington where or. Blair has lived All his life was an old Covenanter graveyard the ground for which was Given originally by or. Bur s father. In the Early Days the Pioneer settlers were always neighbourly but never More so than in times of sorrow and the helped Bury one another s dead. Or. Blair was a participant in near All of the Early interments. Recent a it was decided to abandon the graveyard and it was then that he in his old age performed the melancholy duty of taking up the bodies of his friends and associates of the Early dais. The first burial had taken place fifty three years previous to this time. Or. Bur says that he observed Many remark Aue things and what Strudic him particularly was that the human hate will grow after death just As Long As there is any substance in the body. Among the caskets which a opened was that of Rosanna Ratney whom he had known Well. She had died thirty three years be Bre the Dis interment and her Haic Lead grown until it reached blows the shoe soles and turned up clean Over her feet in the Bottom of the coffin. The body of prof. Jamea Wood bum sr., which had been buried thirty years presented exactly the same appearance As when it was interred. Even the shirt front waa immaculate but when the air strode the body it crumbled into Dost. Or. Buur. Remarked that the Beard on the face of his brother in la Iii lad grown a Quarter of an Indi.

He always found in every grave some Remaina of the body except in the Case of two men who were notorious drunk aids and in the Graves he found not a particle of hair flesh or Bones.
