Radcliffe the genial pastor will have occasion to be over- joyed when he enters his pulpit next Sun-day and its quite probable that when he lifts' his eyes above his audience to behold the magnificence of mans work that his thoughts may elevate to the Grandeur of that city on high with its gold paved streets. There is no just reason why a church house should not be in keeping with the times and now that the Greentown M. E. church is one that will out-rank almost any church in a city of this size, is certainly most gratifying to both pastor and members, and in reality Greentown herself is proud of such elegant houses of worship. CHICKEN THIEVES. Their Work in Eastern Howard on a Wholesale Scale. After several months untnolestful-ness, the farmers of Eastern Howard who chance to have a surplus of poultry are again the victims of chicken stealing on a wholesale scale. That is the work of robbing the hennery is done by two or three big lazy galoots who have a wagon and coops along to haul them away in, the task of carrying off two or three dozen big fat hens being too laborious for a single nights work, and in some instance: the thieves are too selfish to leave enough behind for the irate farmers wife to begin the raising of another brood. Farmer J. H. , Uphaus was in the city Friday and said that he was the loser of nearly three dozen while others tar him had shared a like fate. I the farms of Amos Ball and ' R.

GREEN fOWN GI Greentown, Indiana, Thursday, June 23, 1898. 1110 38 The Gem is more than pleased to make mention of the fact today that the interior of the M. E. church has recently undergone a radical change, which has not only- made this noble edifice the most beautiful in appear-ance, but added to the comfort of Another Revolutionary if" rising Quelled. Cape Hay lien special: Anot • - er revo - lutionary uprising in Port au I ' rane has been quelled after a fierce ba tile. The revolt broke out Friday nig it and the streets were quickly filled • i th rioters. Troops were called from the a rmories at the beginning of the outbreak and their appearance was the signal ice a battle. Before the revolutionists bro • and ran under the tire of the soldiers two men had been shot. Many arrests v ere made. ae office , n and the' ptati, n . e is a, to have made a speech durtn which 11€ elated tthhee Americans never an ilex the Philippine Islands while Williara re-mains Emperor. It is said the Germans proposed to re-move the Spanish wounded soldiers to a hospital ship under the German flag , but Admiral Dewey is reported to hay o re-plied that hitherto mediation tad a' ways been British, and it must remain so. Millions of Hoppers. Fessenden ( N. D.) special: - Wells, Eddy and Foster Counties are all te net up over the discovery of myriads of g rass-hoppers in the fields. The last few warm days have hatched them out b Y the millions. Where they have appear : d and are old enough to do any damag e they have eaten away patches in the grain, some places measuring from one tc i forty acres, leaving the ground as ba re as a street. The County Commissioners , in the different counties have taken the matter in hand and are exerting every j pssible effort to exterminate the parasites. + • at Die scan ports ostensibly for New York, but really to carry provisions, arms and ammunition to Cuba and attempt to avoid the blockade and effect a landing. This matter has been communicated by the Cuban representative at Mexico to the Cuban junta in Washington for the purpose of informing the American Gov-ernment of the scheme. The measure has already passed the Chamber of Deputies and as effort will be made by the Cuban sympathizers in Mexico to secure its de-feat in the Senate. The purpose of the act, it is stated, was not known to many of the deputies, and it is believed that had it been the bill would not have passed that house. The Villa- Verdes is the vessel which was fitted out several months ago on a filibustering expedition with supplies obtained in Mexico for the relief of the Cubans, but was captured by the Gov-ernment before it had left port and com-pelled to unload its cargo. Weary Willies Must Wat. Led on by the success of the 200 men who recently took possession of the Santa Fe freight train east of Newton, Kan., and directed its course to Central West-ern Kansas in search of work in the har-vest fields, sixty men attempted the same * method of procedure at Newton and fail-ed. There were points of difference in the two expeditions which caused their re-sults. The first expedition was really looking for work and had numbers to back It. The second was composed wholly of tramps, and, instead of looking for work, was really trying to get beyond the har-vest fields, and in danger of being pressed into service. The men made a rush for a freight train as it left the yards. The trainmen and yardman resisted and city officials aided them. The tramps were thriven out of town. Twenty of the men who went through on the captured train the other day have returned and joined a railroad contractor's gang until harvest is well on. Most of the others are waiting for harvest in various parts of Central and Western Kansas. Shot by a Pretly Or'. Burglars broke into the grounds of Mrs. Margaret Long in Murray Hill avenue, Pittsburg. They were about to enter the house by way of a balcony, when Miss Elizabeth Long awakened. Procuring a revolver she Crept to a window. In a tree near the porch she saw- several dark objects. When they came within range she fired. At the first shot there was a yell of pain and a man dropped to the ground. Another man jumped from the tree and assisted his- apparently wounded compan-ion to escape. One K lied and Co w I lured. The Iron railway engine, the John Campbell, blew up on the incline above Ironton, Ohio. Engineer Robert Royer was killed, Conductor Charles Myers had his head cut and was seriously injured, Fireman Andy l'eit was terribly scalded and Brakeman Nobble was fatally in-jured. Pennsylvania Tone Destroyed. The town of Spartansburg, fifteen miles north of Titusville, Pa., suffered a severe see ; chine.

F nave July grain to d .. e maelstrom and prices droppes 2 cents or more at a jump, losing 13 cents in the first two hours and keeping up- the break until it had slumped 20 cents to 92 cents. Liquidation Was heavy all over the pit and there were rumors of heavy losers. Miners in Fear ef Pirstea. The first boat from Dawson, is expected at San Frapeisco about July 4, but it is not likely that any miner will trust his gold on a vessel unless she is escorted by a government steamer. There is a very general impression around Dawson that Pirates have banded together to attack a gold- carrying vessel on the high seas and loot her. Minirg Claims Are Sold. Three hundred thousand dollars was paid by a Minneapolis, Minn., syndicate for the Glenwood Sunset grpup of mining claims in Ruby basin, near Deadwood, S. D., containing ninety- five acres, owned by P. L. Gibbs of Deadwood and Charles Waite of New' York. The price is con-sidered large for undeveloped property, but it is surrounded by good paying ground. Tea Rushed Is. A special to the Detroit Evening News from Montreal says that 315,000 pounds of tea, fifteen carloads, were rushed across the border to Malone, N. Y., the other night in order to avoid imposition of the new 10- cent war revenue tax. Heavy shipmenta, though on a smaller scale, are reported from Toronto to the United States. Judge Gerald Is Acquitted. Judge G. B. Gerald was acquitted by a jury at Waco, Texas, of the charge of murder ft having killed W. A. and J. W. Harris, b thers, who were publishers of the Wac Times- Herald, in November last. Th tragedy was one of several growing o,: t of IV. C.
