Tne Merchant of Venice.
On Friday eveuing, January 26. at the
High School Gymnasinm the second
number of a series of illustrated talks
will be given. This time Superinten
dent Sherman will take up the subject
of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice.
Superintendent Sherman is especially
well fitted to handle any literary theme
and in presenting this comedy of
Shakespeare, he has secured about 20
lantern slides more than half of them
being first class colored slides of the
finest kind. The use of these to illustrate
his explanation of thecomedy will be a
rare treat to all lovers of good literature.
These talks are designed as educa
tional advantages for the" students but
all persons are always welcome and
parents would do well to accompany
their children and see what a splendid
opportunity for true development of
higher literary taste is offered by our
schools. The students, their friends and
the friends of education; in the city are
invited. A small admission, 10 cents,
will be charged at the door and the pro
ceeds will be devoted to the use of the
school in the purchase of lantern slides.
This is a new move in the edncational
affairs of ourcity andjeserves the pa
tronage of all.

Pat Ducey and his mother Anna Ducey
were struck by a moving box car here
today and narrowly escaped death, the
former sustaining a broken arm and the
latter a broken wrist besides being bad
ly bruised.
They were driving across the railroad
near the depot when the accident oc
curred. An engine was switching on
tbe siding backing a string of box cars
toward the crossiug. A coal shed shut
off the view of the moving cars, and Mr.
Ducy bad driven on to the track before
he saw them. The team had got across
but the car struck the wagon and threw
its occupants violently to the ground.
Had the car struck them an instant
sconer both of them would probably
have been killed. As It is, no serious
results are anticipated.

From the World
At twenty minutes past five o'clock
Sunday evening searching parties found
tbe dead body of little Cecil Frease in
the ice pond near the house. Early in
the afternoon the little fellow left the
house saying that he would be back in
a little while. Time past but he did not
return, but no uneasiness was felt by
his mother because she thought he had
gone to one of tbe neighbors to play.
When it was discovered he was not
there a search was at once instituted.
Inqniry was made at the near neighbors,
and finally a general alarm was given.
This was four o'clock. Parties went to
tne rrease home and as tne child was
in the habit of playing about tbe creek
some of the men went there. They
found the boy's sled on the ice and
noticed a hole in the snow and slush in
a partially open place where men had
been putting up ice the day before, j
Prod poles were secured and a search
was made in the water. Soon Mr. Carle
ton strnck an object and after a couple
of trials the little body was brought up.
The indications were that life had been
extinct for three or four hours.
