He is a great Roamer having been All Over this country before adopting the sea for a Liv Hood and since he became a Sailor he has been around the world several times. He is a plucky Young Man and has a Good record As a Seaman. Buy the Best. Price of horses advancing. The Law abstract and insurance. H. D. Billings was born in this county and is Well and favourably mown Here. He was absent for a considerable time at school and after graduating and being admitted to practice he was engaged in the Law at Crawfordsville for a ime with his father. He will devote himself to the Law business that comes to the firm while or. Stephens will look after the abstracts and insurance. John c. Stephens has been a resident of the county since 1860. I an item will be found in he has always been an Active Busi another column Over the signature Ness and professional Man and of Wesley Harper concerning the dabbled considerably in politics old Wayne Mutual life insurance serving As county auditor one term. Co., of Indianapolis it seems the firm owns a splendid set of that the senior Harper who died abstract books the Only ones in several months ago was not Origi the county containing All convey Nally insured in a company of the ances from the original entry. Present name. His policy was changed from time to time and finally at death he was in the company above named. These various companies through which his policy was handed Down from time to time were operated on the hereafter be found at the office of j assessment plan. The insured Felt i t it it to a -r.-. Death his family would receive the full amount of his policy $4,000, but he had been in Robert Braden who retires from the firm will remain a citizen of Williamsport and will engage in the practice of his profession. He has secured desk room and will Stansbury amp Rossiter or.

He will also write fire and Cyclone insurance and look after collections. Or. Braden is a Bright Young Man and is Well and favor Bly known in this part of the state and Over in Illinois., and any business entrusted to his care in any of the lines he represents will receive his prompt and careful attention. Farmers who have pinned their Faith to horses Are about to reap the Reward of their belief in the horse. Recent sales show that Good horses quot Are scarce and the Price for such horses is advancing the present War demand for horses will Aid greatly in advancing prices still higher and the Lucky Man who has continued to Breed in the face of a falling Market is assured of a substantial Market. The curfew failure. Sure ? for eleven years and the amount received in full settlement is said to not amount to As much As the premiums paid in. This has very much the appearance of being a skin game though of course the company May be Able to show that they Are dealing with policy holders in a perfectly fair and honorable manner. Nothing like straight life insurance in the Good old tried and True companies though. Towns throughout this and other states from time to time have passed curfew ordinances but they seem to never be heard of after their passage. We have yet Tosee a newspaper article commending the plan. The Law seems to be inoperative or nearly so. It is not enforced and no heed is paid to it either by the authorities or by the children on the streets after night. The movement to substitute Law for parental discipline operates As it might be expected. A jangling of Bells occurs at 8 or 9 o clock As the Case May be which May have the effect to frighten the timid children into the House. But if it has any other effect it Isi not known. The children of whom the ordinance was enacted Are not to be driven from the Street by noise nor is there any Secu tion of the ordinance As a Rule Exi cent in some extraordinary where it is enforced against Cert individuals because no other finance will reach them. This As might be expected. It is another Law to disregard and effect is evil upon the bad child who learn that Law May be Ginoi
