Russell Newhouse and two other boys were working with the discarded gasoline tank from an automobile in the woodshed at the new House Home last evening when the tank exploded. It was filled with water it is understood and was enclosed in such a Way that the steam could not escape. The explosion occurred when the three boys were standing around the vessel but by exceeding Good Fortune none of them was injured. The top of the tank went crashing through the roof of the Shea and the boiling water splashed Over the boys but they were dressed in their Winter clothing and escaped scalding. The loud report caused alarm All Over the neighbourhood on West fifth Street. The boys who so fortunately escaped injury Are being congratulated on the fact notice whatever to be Given to examination. Ninety s being drilled for Field duty win probably Start out Over state some time next week. Indianapolis Jan. 4.�?Over ninety Field examiners met yesterday in the chamber of the House of representatives to receive instructions from state examiner w. A. Dehority. The afternoon was spent in a discussion of the Law in its relation to the duties of the Field examiner. The school of instruction As the state examiner has named it will continue in session today. The Point of the Law most discussed was with regard to notice. The statute is very explicit on this Point stating specifically that no notice of any kind is to be Given the official to be examined. The comings and goings of the Field examiners Are to take place in the greatest secrecy possible. The officer is to have no earlier notice than the appearance of two examiners at his front door. The question came up that in event the officer to be examined happened to be out when the examiners called whether the fact of the Call would not give notice. The state examiner expressed it As his opinion that it would not unless the Field examiners stated their business and he saw no necessity for this. The chief duty of the Field examiners it appears will be to know everything and Tell nothing. It will probably be the first of the coming week or later before any of the examiners Are assigned to Board re elected. At the annual meeting of the stockholders of the Central state Bank this afternoon All of the old directors were re elected.

Permitted Little Niece to Pinch it out of his forehead swelling soon followed until his eyes were closed Peculiar Case. James Pattee is recovering from a most Peculiar though severe Case of blood poisoning and is Able to explain Why so. Much pain and trouble resulted from an apparently slight cause. On Christmas Day or. Pattee was a guest of relatives in East Conners Ville. A Little Niece who was in his Lap espied what is called a quot Blackhead quot the nest of one of those Small insects which sometimes infest the human skin. The child asked him if she might remove it and her Uncle consented. She worked busily with her Pudgy Little fingers and soon triumphantly exhibited her quot Blackhead quot capture. Soon afterwards the place on his forehead where tie insect had been removed began to swell. In a few hours there was a Large Lump on his forehead. A continued to grow More painful and he finally had to quit work. By sunday last his face had became so swollen that his eyes were closed. He then called a physician who managed to reduce the swelling and soon or. Pattee s face will be As Well As Ever. The mysterious is what it was that caused the inflammation. The child was clean and in her Holiday attire so it seems that nothing contaminating could have come from her hands. It was possibly one of those or. Hurty germs that Are forever making trouble that May have blown into the slight wound caused by the removal of the quot Blackhead quot at the wrong moment. However All is Well that ends Well and or. Pattee will soon be As sound As Ever. Nineteen sheep killed by Overta Nln of a a or at Griffins station.

For the same p or Iod last year the receipts were $6,66.5.93 showing a gain of one thousand fifty two dollars and fifty two cents. For the months of october and november the gain was somewhat above $200 for each month though these Are the months when Many lines of business cease their activity until warm weather comes again. The big gain came in december when Uncle Sam received from his people in Fayette county fully $600 More than he received from them during the preceding december. Much of this gain of Cours. Is due to the unprecedented Christmas business which in itself is the Best kind of a Prosperity indicator. Then there were the one cent Stamps that everybody s wife or Mother or sister bought to put on Post cards to Send through the mails. This item of itself swelled the Post office re enu a appreciably while nobody paid Cut hardly enough to mention. Mrs. Wetherald willed a her property to her daughter mrs. Martin. The will of mrs.

Total county debt Many interesting items jury expense for year was very Castle cite inherits a Deb May put it beyond two per cent. school Bonds issued away Buck in 1805 still hanging Over it Amo int is $30,000�?total tax bles about $20,000 Sciort. Newcastle ind., Jan. 2.�?mayor Forkner and the new City Council at the outset of taking up the business affairs of the City of Newcastle find themselves facing a vexing financial problem which is puzzling lawyers and financiers to solve. A the solution will Settle whether Newcastle is beyond the Legal bonded debt limit As provided by Law. In 1895 a school building was erected and Bonds to the amount of $30,000 were issued to pay for it. These Bonds were issued by the town Board and not by the school Board. In the time before a City charter was voted these Bonds were regarded As a school debt and not a town debt. It now seems that they Are the latter and the mayor and new Council have inherited the Burden. The bonded debt limit of any City under the statutes is 2 per cent of its assessed valuation. The valuation of Newcastle property is a Little More than 4,-006,000, so that the debt limit would be about 80,000. If the $30,000 Bonds Are City Bonds then the bonded debt of the City is More than $100,000 and beyond the limit prescribed by Law. If the $30,-000 Bonds Are school Bonds then the City is on the Safe Side financially and is within the Legal on walk. Some school girls were probably the first to discover a lot of new tacks sown on the walk across the fill especially near the River Bridge. Auditor j. L. Kennedy has completed his report for the year ending Friday last and it shows the county in a healthy financial condition despite the fact that there have been Many heavy items of expense the past year that there was no liquor Revenue and that the collections had been on a lower basis by 5 cents on the Hundred dollars last year than the year before. There is a marked saving also in some instances. The Asylum Cost this year is $287.60 less than last and the outside poor expense Bill shows a saving this year Over last of nearly $500. The county was hit hard this year with jury fees the total Cost being $2,314.60 or More than three times what it was last year the amount then being $789.00. Court costs Are also larger by $174.19 than they were last year. There is also an item of quot fees and mileage quot $429.72 that does not appear in last year s report at All. The total receipts and balances for the past year were $253,905.47, while the total disbursements were $229,920.06, leaving a balance on hand of $24,185.41. The total debt of the county is $12,500, consisting of a Bond to the congressional township principal fund of $9,120.00 and one to the permanent endowment fund of $3,-380.00. As is known the county would save nothing in interest if this debt were out of the Way As in any event the county must pay interest on school funds where Money is not loaned. But doubtless the county will soon be Able to wipe off the slate the last Vestage of debt though this year s taxpayers will profit by an additional Cut made in the rate last c.
