Death Calls Orville MOON
Orville MOON, 19 year old son of Rev. and Mrs. F. C. MOON, died at 8 o'clock Sunday evening, after a week's illness at his home on south Main street. He had been ill for about a week, his affliction gradually developing into a serious case of pneumonia, which baffled his physician and caused a most untimely death.
He was born in Liberty township, Jan. 21, 1893, where he lived till three years ago, when the family moved to their present residence. He graduated from the Rochester High School in May, 1913. After attending Normal school at the college, he was one of the first of the young teachers to obtain a license. In the fall of 1912, he began teaching at school No. 8, known as the South Mud Creek school, and was most successful in his work. He was appointed by Supt. BECKER to teach in the new district school, which is to open soon, near Germany, and as Mr. Becker says, had a bright and successful future before him.
He will be buried Tuesday, on his twentieth birthday, in the I.O.O.F. cemetery. The services will be held at the Baptist church, by Rev. G. C. CHANDLER and Rev. Lee FISHER, of Flora. The deceased leaves his parents, five sisters, Mrs. Zona BERGER, of Peru, Mrs. John COOL, of Argos, Mrs. Bert LEEDY, of Walnut, Mrs. Clyde WALTERS, of South Bend and Myra [MOON], who mourn his death.

Erie Train Kills Joseph Hunter
Joseph HUNTER, a well known Rochester citizen, was instantly killed at Leiters Ford Wednesday evening by an Erie freight train which backed upon him without warning. He was cut and mutilated in a horrible manner. One leg was cut completely off, and the head was crushed.
The fatal accident occurred at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Mr. Hunter, who has been an employee of the Erie company, had just taken his supper at the BRUGH hotel. He started to walk to the Erie depot down the side track near Leiters elevator. The west bound local had just pulled in and was in the act of making a flying switch in order to place an empty car on the side track. Mr. Hunter was in the center of that track and because of the noise from the engine and rattle of the cars on the main line, he did not hear the approach of the empty coal car, which without warning ran him down, dragging him fifteen or twenty feet.
Three men, Alvie SUMMERS, H. CAMPBELL and Fred BRUGH, witnessed the accident, but were unable to give a warning to Mr. Hunter. They yelled at the trainmen, who were unable to stop the car. With their assistance, the trainmen carried the remains to the Erie depot. The coroner, Dr. F. B. LOWE, was notified and accompanied the body to Rochester, where Undertaker Val ZIMMERMAN took charge.
The accident which caused the untimely death of Joseph Hunter, or as he is better known, "Joe" Hunter is deeply regretted by everyone who knew him and who appreciated his efforts to do better. For some time he had been employed by the Erie extra gang and through hard and diligent work was getting good results. He had been assisting in the double tracking between Germany and Leiters and had been boarding at the farm home of Geo. MYERS. Wednesday he had to seek another place to board and it is supposed that he was on this quest when the accident took place.
The coroners inquest was held today in Leiters Ford. As there were only three witnesses of the accident, the hearing did not take long.
It was reported today that the Erie company would be held responsible for Mr. Hunter's death, as it is against the law to make a flying switch.
Joseph Hunter, who was 55 years of age, was born on a farm east of Rochester. When twenty years of age he married Catherine NEW, to which union there was born one child, Edward HUNTER, who now resides in Plymouth. His present wife was Effie GILBERT. To this union were born six children, four of whom survive him, Eugene [HUNTER], Rex [HUNTER], Mrs. John SLAYBAUGH and Leone HUNTER. Mr. Hunter was a member of the Christian church. The funeral services will be held Saturday, interment at I.O.O.F. cemetery.

"Bink" Stinson is Manager
After considering three or four offers, Frank STINSON, better known as "Bink," has accepted a position as general manager of the shop end of the ROCHESTER MACHINE CO.
Mr. Stinson is well fitted to take care of the work, having managed shops all over the country, and having recently been employed as laboratory man by the Rayfield Carbureter Co., in Chicago. He was in the racing game for several years, and still holds the record for a $1500 stock car, making two hundred miles in one hundred eighty-six minutes, in a race run in the Indianapolis speedway, July 4, 1910.
Since the new machinery has been installed in the shop, the owners have an equipment with which any part can be duplicated, and the force of seven men is easily capable of keeping a car in a first class shape. They will soon be prepared to alter any motor in such a manner that kerosene can be used instead of gasoline, the more expensive fuel. The idea is Mr. Stinson's, and he guarantees it to work.

John N. Bryant Called by Death
Grief came to the home of Frank E. BRYANT, president of the INDIANA BANK & TRUST CO., Tuesday night, when a message was received announcing the sudden death of his father, John N. BRYANT, in Palo Verde, Arizona. Heart trouble was the cause. Mr. Bryant was well known in this city and county and his death comes as a distinct surprise and shock.
Mr. Bryant has been in Arizona since the latter part of October, having gone there upon the advice of physicians, in hope of benefiting Mrs. Bryant's health. The climate had proven a great aid to her and it was thought that the two could spend the summer in Rochester. Mr. Bryant, who was seldom ill, fell from a low haystack the first of last week, spraining his ankle, but the injury was reported not to be serious. His death, which occurred some time Tuesday afternoon, was therefore a great shock to his son's family.
Mr. & Mrs. Bryant were making their home with Mrs. Almeda BYBEE and her son, Delman [BYBEE], both formerly of Fulton county. They first went to Phoenix to live, and intended to return there this week. Delman Bybee starts east with the body tonight, and is expected to arrive here Sunday or Monday. Arrangements for the funeral will be made at that time. Mrs. Bryant may not return to Rochester until spring. In such an event, Mr. & Mrs. Frank BRYANT and their family will go to Arizona to stay until her return.
John N. Bryant was born in Newcastle township, near Talma, January 20, 1845, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Peter BRYANT, now both deceased. He was 68 years old at the time of his death. In 1871 he was united in marriage with Hannah BYBEE. To this union were born three children, two of whom died in infancy. After engaging in farming and carpentry for a number of years, Mr. Bryant moved his family to Rochester in 1894 and resumed the latter trade in the city, plying it up until a few years of his death. His home was on south Jefferson street. He leaves besides his wife and son, a brother, Rudy BRYANT, of Newcastle township, and a sister, Mrs. Simon BYBEE, of North Judson.

Macy is Stirred by Love Affair
Macy, Ind., Feb. 1 -- It has been learned here today that Marvin BRIGGS, teacher at the Five Corners school near here, and son of Albert BRIGGS, has during the past week, kept himself and pupils locked in school, fearing to face his sweetheart, whom it is said, is determined to marry him. The girl in the case is Miss Garnett SNOWBERGER, daughter of Lee SNOWBERGER, who lives east of here.
Briggs and Miss Snowberger have been seen in each other's company for several years and a marriage announcement has long been expected. Briggs, however, denies that he ever bound himself in any way and is evidently much annoyed by the attentions paid him by the young lady. Last Friday he went to Peru, to take a teacher's examination, catching the train at Wagoner's as he had learned that the girl intended to meet him here. She discovered his ruse the next morning, went to Peru, and came home with him after creating a scene there, it is said.
They were met at the train by Briggs' brother and Mrs. SNOWBERGER, each in separate rigs. After an argument, Briggs decided to accompany the girl and her mother to their home, telling his brother to ask his parents to come after him. When Mr. & Mrs. Briggs arrived at the Snowberger home later in the evening they found difficulty in getting their son. During the course of the argument, it is said, the girl struck Mrs. Briggs, blacking her eye. Then when the three Briggs attempted to drive away, the elder Snowberger thrust the girl into their buggy. The result was that she hit the father on his hand and scratched Marvin's face, before she was put out of the vehicle. The Briggs then left.
The young man resumed his teaching Monday, but on Tuesday morning found his school house locked, and the key gone. He had difficulty in getting in, and since has kept the door securely locked, whether he was there or not, evidently thinking the girl had been there on Tuesday.
It is rumored that each family has made advances for settlement, but nothing as yet has transpired. Briggs, it is said, is firm in denying that he is bound in any way to marry the girl and declares he won't.
Miss Snowberger is well known in Rochester, having been a student at Rochester college some years ago.

Monday evening, he was detailed to take an engine, the second back of a double header, to haul a very heavy and long string of cars. The extra heavy load caused his death, as the coupling between his engine and the tender broke, near Jessup, Ind.
When the accident happened, Kaley was shoveling coal into the fire box and before he was aware of the break, the engine and tender parted dropping him through on the rails. The on coming freight cars cut one foot completely off and mangled and crushed the other.
He was taken at once to a hospital in Terre Haute, where both legs were amputated Thursday, but the loss of blood left him in a very weakened condition. Complications set in and the efforts of several physicians were of no avail.
Wesley A. KALEY was the son of Mr. & Mrs. Jacob KALEY of Leiters Ford. For five years he had charge of the schools at Talma, Ind. Several years ago he married a daughter of Phillip BERGER.
Mr. Kaley was an exceptionally clean young man and was highly respected by everyone.
The funeral services will be held in Logansport.

Beloved Pastor is Laid to Rest
. . . . . respects to Rev. R. B. SEAMAN. . . . . . . .
The deceased was born near London, England, August 4, 1851. In the spring of 1854 his father disposed of his holdings in England, and came to America, settling in Chicago. Scarcely a year elapsed when he was obligated to return to England to attend to some financial affairs. His parents had formed the acquaintance of an English lady of refinement by the name of Mrs. Anna SEAMAN, and to her care he was entrusted during the brief time their presence was to be required in their old home. Reaching England in safety, and having settled their business affairs, they started the return trip to America. The vessel was wrecked in mid-ocean and all on board were lost.
In the year 1856, Doctor Seaman was placed in the Chicago Orphan Asylum, where he was admitted under the name of Robert BROWN. One year later Mrs. Seaman adopted hm as her own son. As her financial condition was precarious, he became, at the age of 8 years, a cash boy in the dry goods store of Potter PALMER at the princely salary of $1.50 per week. Another year elapsed and he was "articled" to a farmer in Putman county, Ill. After 5 years of farm life he came back to Chicago. His foster-mother had moved to New York city, and he obtained lodging with a family that made fair promises, but turned him into the streets as soon as the money he had saved on the farm was exhausted. Day after day he tramped the streets of Chicago, hunting work, which he could not find.
Winter was coming on and he resolved to seek employment in a new field and traveled to Niles, where fortune favored him and he was offered his board and schooling for doing chores around a tavern. While there he received the greatest shock of his life in a letter from his adopted mother in New York, informing him that she was not his real mother, as he had supposed, but had merely adopted him. She told him that his real name was Robert Brown and advised him to assume his proper name as it might, at some time, be a pecuniary advantage to him. Carried away in a burst of grief, he burned the letter and resolved to carry the name of Seaman to his grave.
At the age of 20 he began the arduous task of working his way through a preparatory, collegiate and theological course, which was accomplished after nine years of strenuous effort. In one of the darkest days when it seemed inevitable that he should have to give up his work on account of being unable to secure employment, he received an appointment as lighthouse keeper at Grosse Point, Ill., at a salary of $400 per year, and he was enabled to prosecute his course of study.
In 1877 he graduated from the Northwestern university receiving the title of Bachelor of Arts and in 1881 he received the honorary degree of Master of Arts.
In 1879 Doctor Seaman was married to Miss Martha EWER, of Seneca, Ill. To this union were born three children, Amos [SEAMAN], Grace [SEAMAN] and Maud [SEAMAN], wife of Professor C. MELVILLE, of Worcester, Mass.
The following out of town people were here to attend the services; Merritt B. TABER and wife, of Sioux City, Iowa; Doctor & Mrs. William BOND, of Goodland, Ind.; G. CLYMER, of Lafayette, Ind.; Benton HARRISON and wife, of Peru; William HARRISON and wife, of Peru; Mrs. BORING, of Evanston, Ill.; Mrs. WATERMAN, of Los Angeles, Cal., Rev. George DICKEY, of Chicago; Rev. Reub. WILLIAMS, of Normal, Ill.; Mrs. Lou LaHOTE, of Milford, Ill.; and Mrs. PETERSON, of Chicago. . . . .

Prof. J. F. Scull Called by Death
The hosts of friends and admirers of Prof. James F. SCULL, for 20 years superintendent of schools in Rochester, were shocked to hear of his death at his home near Germany, at six thirty o'xlock this morning. He was 77 years old. Arterial sclerosis was the direct cause, according to his physicians. He had been ill about ten days.
Since his retirement from active work, about ten years ago, Prof. Scull has lived in Rochester, Indianapolis and Germany. The last named move was made partly in hopes of benefitting his health, which had been failing for some time. It was thought that his outdoor life in the country was doing him much good, until the appearance of this serious illness a short time ago.
Prof. Scull was born in Hamilton county, Ohio, Nov. 30, 1835 and moved with his parents to Rush county, Indiana, when but six months old. He was always identified with Indiana and Indiana interests and counted himself a true Hoosier. His father, John SCULL, ran woolen mills in the new home. The boy spent much of his time, when not in school, at work in the industry of his parent. He entered Asbury college (now DePauw university) at Greencastle when about 16 and upon graduating took charge of a Methodist preparatory school at Danville, Ind. This was about 1859.
When the war broke out, the school was closed, and Mr. Scull returned to his father's home, all of his brothers having gone to the war, and remained at work in the mill until peace was declared. In April, 1860, he had married Miss Emma YOUNG, of Yountsville, Ind. and about 1866 the two returned to Danville, where he again took up his work in the schools. While there he was associated with C. M. SIMS, the well known Methodist, who died but a few years since.
After a period of several years in Danville, his work was recognized and after receiving better offers, he taught in several different places in the state, coming to Rochester as superintendent in 1882. Not long after coming here, Mrs. Scull was called by death. He served in the city a full score of years, becoming a strong and recognized figure in the community as well as the state. He was retired in 1902 and shortly after was married to Mrs. Addie KENDRICK. After a brief residence here they removed to Indianapolis, where they spent several years, returning to this community about three years ago to take up their residence on a farm near Germany. Prof. Scull had a cottage on the Tippecanoe, his favorite fishing stream and the great majority of the summer days were spent along the river, whose every crook and turn he knew so well.
Until this winter, Prof. Scull's health was never seriously threatened. Shortly after the first of the year, he was attacked by a combination of liver and heart trouble. Ten days ago, he was stricken fatally and slowly sank to his death. Arrangements had been made Tuesday, to take him to the home of his daughter in Crown Point, but the seriousness of the case prevented.
Besides his wife, there are six children surviving, all by the first wife. They are: Mrs. W. A. SCHEDDELL, of Crown Point, Dr. Eleanor SCULL, of Crown Point, Mrs. W. E. UPHAM, of Texas, W. F. SCULL, of Crown Point, James SCULL, of Columbus, O., and J. A. (Hart) SCULL, of Haines, Alaska. There are also a brother and a sister, Rev. J. F. SCULL and Mrs. Alice WHITINGER, both of Rush county. Mrs. UPHAM is at present in Crown Point. Bert, who is with the regular army will not be able to return home.
The arrangements for the funeral were not complete this morning, but it was the desire of the family that the services be under the auspices of the Masons, of which he was a long time member. The time planned is Saturday. Burial will be made in the I.O.O.F. cemetery. . . . .

He is a brother of the former maker of a now famous auto truck, (who is now consulting engineer with the Studebaker Corporation) has been in the automobile business all of his life, having been in this country but four years. He is a native German.

Doctor Rannells Called by Death
Dr. Jacob Newton RANNELLS is dead. The well known physician passed away at his home on Jefferson street Tuesday evening at six o'clock. Death was not unexpected as the attending physicians recently notified Mrs. Rannells and other relatives that life could not be prolonged over a few days as the afflicted man was suffering with a cancer of the stomach. Although conscious of the outcome Dr. Rannells remained in a very cheerful mood and endeavored to divert the thoughts of his wife and relatives from his condition.
He had been in ill health during the past winter but refused to take to his bed until two weeks ago. He was then taken to the Woodlawn hospital and several eminent physicians from Chicago were called to attend him. After a consultation it was decided that an operation would not help him as he was removed to his home last week. He gradually became worse during the last few days and was unconscious a large part of the time. Death came as a relief to his suffering.
Doctor Jacob Rannells was past 52 years of age and was born in Rochester, Indiana, October 14, 1860. His parents, Mr. & Mrs. John W. RANNELLS, moved to this city from Ohio and were well known residents of this section.

While his parents lived in Rochester, Jacob Rannells worked in a store at Twelve Mile, Ind., for about a year. After that he went into the office of Dr. AGER at Perrysburg and took up the practice of medicine where he remained for a year. In 1884 in the ---- with Doctor W. S. SHAFER, he took a two years course in medicine at the Rush school of medicine in Chicago, where he graduated with honor in 1886. He then came to Rochester in the company of Dr. SHAFER and in partnership, the two opened offices. They soon became well known and had a clientage which extended all over this and surrounding counties.
On April 27, 1893, Dr. Rannells was married to Miss Katherine BECRAFT. Their married life has been ideal and together they worked hard and patiently only to be separated when they were beginning to enjoy the fruits of their toil.

Dr. J. N. Rannells was one of Rochester's energetic and representative citizens and was a well known figure in business and social circles. Honest and upright in all his dealings he had gained the love and respect of every one. He will indeed be missed. He was a member of the I.O.O.F. and K. of P. lodges.

Local Men Are Well Impressed
An AUTOMOBILE FACTORY for Rochester seems assured as local men were well impressed today with the truck which was displayed on the streets. The car was driven down from Indianapolis by the promoter of the factory in six hours over some very bad roads.
The machine is thirty-five horsepower and is capabe of carrying a 1500 pound load. The gears are patterned after those of foreign makes and are completely covered. This method will do away with the claims which make so much noise and will also prevent dust from getting into the gears.
The local men who examined the truck today were convinced that it was a salable machine and promised to take stock in the company. One man was so well impressed with the proposition that it is said he may invest $7,000.
The man who owns the machine and who will have charge of the factory has had many years experience in building automobile trucks. It will take $15,000 to float the proposition. A meeting will be called this evening to consider plans.

Rochester is Given Credit
[ROCHESTER highly praised by Peru Journal for assistance during flood]
Captain Henry BAILEY was at Rochester during their relief work, and tells us that the alacrity with which Rochester raised funds, confiscated boats and loaded freight cars was wonderful.
The list of dead corresponds exactly with that published in Monday night's Sentinel. The bodies of Delight SHIELDS, Peter KELLOGG and (----) FRIEND have not been recovered and the OYLER boys, whose sister is now at the home of James COPLEN, are still missing.

Carnegie Medals for Knight Boys
CARNEGIE MEDALS for "Tid" [KNIGHT] and Charles KNIGHT, of this city, are recommended by the Peru Journal, which pays especial tribute to these two members of the rescuing crew, as well as to "Red" MAY, who lost his life. . . . .
Charles and Tid Knight, brothers, of Rochester, were two others of the great heroes of the flood. Born and raised on the shores of Lake Manitou, these two are past masters at the art of handling a boat. There was no current too swift for them to go with their boat and they saved many from perches and roofs. They arrived on the first relief train from Rochester, and did not cease their untiring efforts until assured that all were saved. To the reader their lifesaving efforts do not seem as great as they really were. The Knights sent their boats where no other less skilled boatsman dared. Wherever a cry for help went up and was heard by either of the Knight boys, it was there they would send their boat, no matter what the odds. And the gulding hand of thir Maker seemed to be ever protecting them, for no fatalities resulted where the Knight boys were. They bore their honors modestly and took orders from no one.
After normal conditions are restored in this city, a commission will be organized to get into communication with the Carnegie Hero Fund Committee and to secure some such national recognition of the heroic services of May and the two Knight brothers. If ever a man deserved a hero medal and money reward, it is this trio and although May does not live to enjoy the honors that will be heaped upon him, still he has a family who will be the beneficiaries of the commission. . . . .

Family Did Not Call Physician
Leiters Ford, Ind., April 2. -- Mrs. Sarah BIDDINGER died here Tuesday evening it is said without medical attendance. The family, it is rumored, belong to a certain religious order which does not believe in medical practice.
A post mortem examination conducted by Dr. Milo KING, of Rochester, revealed the fact that the woman had been a victim of pneumonia. She was past 60 years of age and was the mother of several children.

Nevertheless, it is rumored she was refused medical attendance and during the past two months when the woman was ill, the family constantly prayed for her. She died Tuesday night at their home in this town as the result of her illness.

When death occurred Jonas BIDDINGER, the husband, notified the coroner, Dr. LOUGH, who after an examination said that he was unable to arrive at the cause of the death. He notified Dr. King of Rochester, who performed a post mortem examination, assisted by Doctors OVERMYER and SLONAKER.
Mrs. Biddinger's death created considerable comment in this town and the people are very indignant over the fact that she died without the care of a physician. It is understood no action will be taken.

Popular Woman Called by Death
Mrs. Otto HITZEMAN is dead at her home in Ft. Wayne. Mrs. Hitzeman (nee Nettie WARD) died Thursday afternoon at four o'clock. Her mother has been with her for several weeks and her father Willis WARD and brother, William [WARD], were notified Thursday to come at once. They arrived a few minutes before she passed away.
The body was brought to Rochester this afternoon where the funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at two o'clock p.m.
Mrs. Hitzeman's death was a shock to the entire community. In the full bloom of life and happiness, as she was but 26 years old and married 3 years ago, her death was very untimely. Mrs. Hitzeman was one of the most popular girls of Rochester. A leader in all social affairs, she made friends with everyone by her jolly ways and sweet disposition.
Mrs. Hitzeman was a graduate of the Rochester college where she spent several years taking a course in music and commercial work. About 3 years ago she was married to Otto HITZEMAN, a prominent young business man of Ft. Wayne. Their married life has been very happy and the death of his wife has completely prostrated Mr. Hitzeman.
Death was caused by improper circulation of the blood. About 10 days ago Mrs. Hitzeman gave birth to a child, who lived for several hours. The mental shock connected with the death of the child hastened the death of the mother.

Will Commence to Build Cars
Arrangements to begin the construction of two ROCHESTER-MAIS COMMERCIAL CARS were practically completed at a meeting of the directors this morning, when J. A. MAIS, who has been on a trip to Detroit, Chicago and other cities, made a report to the board. The shop, for the present, will be located in the ROCHESTER GARAGE AND MACHINE SHOP, with offices above.
That his brother, A. F. MAIS, who designed the first Mais truck, had two draughtsmen at work on designs for the car to be made here was only a part of the good news brought by Mr. Mais. A F. Mais is with the Studebaker corporation and will be able to put the results of his experimenting in the car. He said that the demand for the light truck was heavy.
Mr. Mais told of his visit to the Northway motor factory at Detroit, where he ordered two 25 H.P. engines, of his arrangements for McCord radiators and other necessary parts. Two axles have been shipped from the Torbensen factory at Newark, N.J. The internal gear driven feature of this axle is to be one of the strong points of the car.
The cars to be built will be exactly alike, it having been decided to construct the larger machine later. Work will probably commence at the first of the week. Mr. Mais will move here at once and assume charge of the work. Few men will be employed at first.
It was decided to collect 50 per cent of the stock subscription, as the company desires to do all business on a cash basis. The machinery on hand in the Rochester Garage was the big inducement to locate the shop there.

Fulton Ave. He was taken ill with a nervous chill, following a day spent in his garden, Monday and slowly sank to his end. His only daughter, Mrs. Ella BRACKETT, was at his side when he died.

Mr. Mercer was one of the county pioneers, having lived here nearly 60 years. He was very well known in the city and the country. His death marks the passing of another of the older generation, among whom the toll of the reaper has been heavy this winter.
Thomas H. Mercer was born in Greene county, Ohio, June 2, 1820, was 82 years, 10 months and one day old when he died, and was the last of a family of ten children. He came to Fulton county in 1854.

City Loses Big R.R. Tie Factory
"For every dollar they took from me, I will take ten thousand dollars from Rochester in the way of wages," was the statement made by Charles VANDERWATER, Erie section man, this morning. Vanderwater was arrested for intoxication, Saturday night, and though denying his guilt, declares he paid his fine like a gentleman in order not to raise trouble.
He says that he is the inventor of a new concrete or cement railroad tie, which in time will be adopted by all railroads because of its efficiency and durability, and that he has made samples of the tie which were favorably commented upon by a number of railroad companies. He said he had been asked if he would take $80,000 for the patent, but refused as he thinks it is worth more. Two companies, among which are the Erie and Wabash and have asked to use the tie, [sic] but the contract has not been signed because of a disagreement as to the location of the factory.

Mr. Vanderwater wished very much to locate the factory in Rochester, because of the excellent quality of the gravel here, and was holding out for that reason. He said this morning that after that treatment he received in Rochester, he would rather lose his patent than see Rochester benefit by it.
The tie he claims to have invented is in three pieces, consisting of the tie proper and the parts used in holding the track to it. According to his statement, he has tested the tie for three months on his section at Akron.

Good Hotels at Lake Manitou
Several years ago there was a crying need for several modern up-to-date hotels on Lake Manitou, but in answer to that demand there have been built and improved three of the best hotels in the state. The COLONIAL, on the north shore, FAIRVIEW, on the east shore, and the WEST SIDE hotel are now equipped with all modern improvements which should satisfy the most fastidious.
The COLONIAL, which contains 60 rooms, was built last summer by O. A. DAVIS and is situated on a very pleasant part of the lake. Electric lights have been installed in every room and the hotel is equipped with baths. The resort is again under the management of Frank SLEVIN, the well known hotel man from Indianapolis. He was here last season and during the summer months every room was occupied. Mr Slevin has had several years of experience and gives excellent satisfaction.
The FAIRFIEW hotel which is owned by I. M. WILE, will be conducted by Harry PAGE, an experienced man in the business, from Champaign, Ill. Mr. Page comes here with excellent recommendations and will no doubt enjoy a large patronage of this popular resort. The location of Fairview is ideal, as the banks are the highest around the lake. A launch will be installed to carry guests across the lake.
Frank MOSS has announced that the WEST SIDE hotel will open the season with a special dinner Sunday, with music by DAVIDSON's orchestra. All winter Mr. Moss has been working on the building and grounds and has the rooms all decorated, the walls in white, the woodwork in a pretty dark green, and the floors nicely varnished. Gas has been placed in all the rooms. There are three suites to accommodate families.
The grounds have been cleaned up and Mr. Moss is contemplating building a pier out from the front of the hotel instead of the side as it has always been. He has also been figuring on grading the grounds and erecting a fountain on them. His water plant is operated by a gasoline engine and has enough pressure to throw the water forty feet. It would make a pretty fountain.
Each year the fame of Lake Manitou spreads a little and each year witnesses more improvements on her shores. Today it is doubtful if a more popular body of water can be found in the state. . . . . . . . .

Crushed by Rock Weighing 3 Tons
Kewanna, Ind., May 22. -- As the result of a peculiar accident which happened to John RAFFERTY, a well known farmer, living west of here, he now lies at the point of death in his home. Rafferty was caught and held in a hole he was digging by a three ton rock which fell upon him, from the brink of the excavation. Doctors agree that his chances for recovery ar slight.
He had decided to bury the stone which lay in one of his fields, and had dug a hole about three and one-half feet deep, by the side of the obstruction. Occupied by his work at the bottom of the hole, he did not notice the rock, the great weight of which suddenly caved in the brink of the excavation, permitting the stone to fall upon the man working beneath.
He was pinned in the hole, being caught about the waist, and remained in this position for almost two hours, at the end of which time, he was able to attract the attention of his brothers.

After a great deal of effort, he was extricated from the painful position, in an almost exhausted condition. He was badly crushed and bruised about the hips and kidneys.
His life now hands in the balance, and it is thought that if inflammation sets in, his chances to live are gone.

Nose Broken as Result of Fight
Frank LOWMAN, proprietor of the LAKE ERIE restaurant, has a broken nose and other marks about the face as the result of an altercation which he had Thursday evening with Chas. BRACKETT, manager of the PROGRESS WHOLESALE GROCERY COMPANY. Only one blow was struck by Brackett which landed directly on Lowman's nose. The victim of the attack will file suit for damages.
The trouble arose as the result of some business dealings that Mr. Lowman had with the company which lead to remarks from both sides. It seems, according to Mr. Brackett, that Mr. Lowman had made remarks about him derogatory to his character. He called at the Lowman restaurant Thursday evening, and asked for the proprietor. Mr. Lowman was not in so Mr. Brackett waited until he arrived. When they met both started to talk about the trouble and according to Mr. Lowman, Mr. Brackett became very offensive. One word brought on another and finally, Mr. Lowman opened the door. Mr. Brackett took offense at the implied invitation to leave and on reaching the door where Lowman was standing, gave him a right cut to the face, knocking him against the wall and rendering him unconscious for several minutes.
Three railroad men were present, and picked Lowman up and took him outside of the restaurant. Doctor KING was called, who found that his nose had been broken. His young daughter, Arline LOWMAN, was present when the attack occurred and added a melodramatic touch to the affair. When her father fell to the floor she stepped over his body and shook her fist in Mr. Brackett's face saying, "Don't you dare strike my father again.
There seems to be two sides to the affair. Mr. Lowman claims he refused to buy any more goods of the firm because they refused to fill a small order which he gave to one of the salesmen some time ago. Mr. Brackett said that Lowman made remarks about him which were slanderous and without truth. The case will be aired in court. Lowman says that he intends to file suit for damages and also a charge of assault and battery.
About three o'clock this afternoon a warrant was issued for Charles Brackett, charging him with being drunk in a public place. Mr. Brackett appeared and plead not guilty. The trial was set for Saturday morning at ten o'clock.

Beauty Proves a Fatal Asset
Divorce proceedings are likely to follow a recent separation of Mrs. Chas. WILKERSON, formerly Miss Mattie WINES, from her husband, following a violent quarrel between the two, which took place in Denver, Col., recently, according to a local relative of Mrs. Wilkerson.
It will be remembered that Miss Wines, who was a beautiful Rochester girl, originally married Howard HARTER, an Akron banker. They were divorced after living together for some time, and Mrs. Harter married Charles WILKERSON, of Logansport, son of a wealthy man, who it is said, spent a small fortune on his wife. The couple recently moved to Denver, Col.
Mrs. Wilkerson, because of her striking beauty, attracted much admiration and it is said the husband became jealous.

15 Tons Butter Made in 6 days
BEYER BROS. CREAMERY manufactured last week enough butter to last the city of Rochester eight months. The exact figures are 30,160 pounds or a little over 15 tons. These figures show a wonderful increase over former years. The growth is the result of the effort of B. F. WEBSTER, the new superintendent, who took charge of the plant the first of the year.
The local firm has to meet heavy competition in their field from Chicago firms, but notwithstanding they are now receiving cream from points 65 miles south and 100 miles east. They have kept men in the field since the first of the year to look after new business and as a result the amount of cream received has increased over 30 per cent for the same time last year. For instance on last Saturday Beyer Brothers took in at the local station from customers who haul their own cream, over 1000 pounds of butter fat.
In order that the Sentinel readers may understand just how the creamery makes butter, a representative visited the plant. The cream is received at the station in large cans and before it is poured into the receiver it is stirred thoroughly and a small amount taken out which is taken to the testing room. . . . .
As many as eight churnings have been made at the local creamery during the present rush in one day. The bu tter is then packed in large tubs and shiped east to market. Local dealers can purchase as much butter as they desire.
Another improvement has been installed this season which was needed badly and that is a can washing machine, which scalds and thoroughly dries the cans. The cans when they leave the machine are as clean and free from any odors as when they were first made. . . . .

Peru-South Bend Line In Prospect
Another interurban is attempting to come through Rochester, if anything is to be judgled from the following letter received by P. M. CRUME, secretary of the Peru Commercial club, from an Indianapolis man. The letter says in part:
Dear Sir: -- On Sunday, June 22nd I am expecting to be in Rochester, Ind., with Mr. J. A. MAIS, vice-president of the ROCHESTER MAIS COMMERCIAL CAR CO. I have thought that this would be a very good opportunity to hold a little informal meeting to discuss the merits and plans for the proposed INTERURBAN railway from PERU to SOUTH BEND.

Threatened to Explode Bomb
An explosion, which might have caused considerable damage, was perhaps avoided Wednesday morning, when Chief CHAMBERLAIN, summoned by Henry PFEIFFER, took from a Kokomo man, who assisted in the fireworks display Tuesday night, a BOMB, which he was attempting to explode near the BEYER BROTHERS offices on west 9th street.
The man was suffering great pain from a nail wound on his hand, caused during his work recently, and had indulged in enough firewater to make him ugly. Going to the paint shop in the alley by the Beyer offices, he secured a piece of fuse from the stores placed there, and biting the latter in two, attempted to insert it in a gas pipe bomb he had been ordered to get swearing frightfully all the time and vowing that he would blow up everything in sight. Mr. Pfeiffer called officer Chamberlain, who took the pipe away from the man and gave him a short time to get out of town. Whether the pipe was loaded or not, is not known. . . . . His actions gave the Beyer office force a great fright. It was learned later that his home is in Kokomo and that he had visited the city a number of times before, but his name was not ascertained.

Damage Suit Is Heard In Court
The attention of the Fulton circuit court was taken today with the damage suit of Sarah A. BUSHAWN vs. Otto McMAHAN. The greater part of the morning was taken in impanelling the jury.
The complaint, which is an interesting one, is as follows: On Sept. 14, 1910, Otto McMahan sold a piece of land in Liberty township to the plaintiff, one of the agreements being that he was to clean the ditch, known as the Thomas R. BUTLER ditch, which runs through the land, within 30 days.
Though the weather permitted, the ditch was not cleaned within the time agreed upon, and Edgar McCARTER, trustee of the township, ordered the ditch cleaned, sending the plaintiff a bill covering the work, amounting to $112.72.
In order to pay this, the plaintiff had to borrow the money or lose part of the land, and to cover the damages she has sustained, she asks for $200.
Mrs. Bushawn, who is 72 years aold, was on the stand the first of the afternoon, as was A. T. DURBIN, who assisted her in obtaining the money.

Caroline BURNS HUTCHINSON was born in Wayne county, Indiana, July 22, 1832, and died June 12, 1913, aged 80 years, 11 months and 20 days. She was the daughter of Abner and Elizabeth BURNS, and her early girlhood was spent in Kosciusko county. She was married to Durastus W. HUTCHINSON, of Buron county, Ohio, June 16th, 1858, by Dr. Allen L. BAILEY. They started their married life at Sevastopol, later moving to Yellow Creek Lake. In February 1868, they came to the present homestead, where they have since resided, eight children were born to this union, one boy, Charles Wesley [HUTCHINSON], dying in infancy; six sons and one daughter, namely, William T. [HUTCHINSON] of South Bend, Jesse [HUTCHINSON] of Ohio, John W. [HUTCHINSON] of Chicago, Ill., Abner M. [HUTCHINSON] of Marion, Ohio, Mary Elizabeth [HUTCHINSON] of Elkhart, Ind., Jerry V.

[HUTCHINSON] of Athens, Ind., who with the husband and father together with 15 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, one sister, Mrs. Rebecca ALEXANDER, of Nowata, Oklahoma, and one brother, Martin BURNS of Rochester, Ind., survive.
She united with the Christian church in Kosciusko county early in the spring of 1858, being baptized by the Rev. Wm. PECK. When she moved to the present home in 1868, there was no church of her denomination in the community. On April 5, 1876, the Bethlehem Baptist church was organized and the deceased became a charter member. She has been a consistent Christian woman to the end. A faithful wife and mother, a kind and obliging neighbor, always ready and willing to administer unto the sick and sorrowing, it can truly be said of our departed sister, "She hath done what she could."

Declares Costs Were Once Paid
That he had paid $25 for cleaning out the ditch on the farm he sold to Mrs. Sarah A. BUSHAWN, that he had received a receipt for the same, and that the work had never been done was testified to by Otto McMAHAN on the stand this afternoon, in the damage suit filed by Mrs. BUSHAWN against him. The greater part of the day was taken up in hearing evidence.
McMahan stated that he had given the money for the cleaning of the ditch to George BUSHAWN, son of the plaintiff, and that he had never done the work, as he had agreed to. After two years, the defendant said, the trustee of the township ordered it cleaned at the expense of the owner, who was then Mrs. Bushawn. She was compelled to pay the costs with borrowed money and thinks she should be reimbursed by Mr. McMahan. The defense in the case seems strong and the outcome is problematical.
George Bushawn was on the stand late this afternoon.

Daughter Finds Body of Father
The gruesome sight of her father, Matthias PEARSON, 65 years old, hanging dead at the end of a rope, greeted his youngest daughter, when she entered a shed on their farm, three miles northwest of Akron, early Wednesday morning. He had committed suicide.
Pearson, who had been in ill health for some time, went to the shed about six o'clock in the morning, placed a ladder against a beam, climbed up and affixed a rope, then put a noose around his neck and jumped off. His neck was broken by the fall. Alarmed by his absence and suspicioning something wrong, his daughter sought him and came upon his body, just as his life was flickering out. Horrified, she hastened to the house, from where the alarm was given.
Dr. A. JOHNSTON, of Akron, was immediately called, but found after his arrival that he could do nothing. Despondency over financial matters and his continued poor health are assigned as the reasons for the deed. Mr. Pearson was in Dr. Johnston's office only Tuesday, seeking a tonic. The farm on which he lived was owned by Mr. GARDNER, of Akron, Pearson renting the place.
Mrs. PEARSON collapsed when she learned of the suicice and since then has been inconsolable. There are five children, all married except the one who lived at home part of the time, and who found the body. Mrs. S. WHITTENBERGER, of south of Akron, is the oldest daughter. There is a son living near Akron, a daughter in Bourbon and a daughter in Chicago. Funeral arrangements are to be announced.

Canning Plant Busy With Peas
The ROCHESTER CANNING FACTORY is now running full blast, the pea crop having arrived at the cutting point. Load after load of the leguminous product is being brought in daily, and the force at the plant is extremely busy.

The two lines of machinery have been put in, enabling the plant to turn out the cans just twice as fast as here-to-fore. . . . .

After eight years of most patient suffering, Mrs. Levi [Mellissa] YOUNG died at her home on west Eighth street this morning. Every community has those afflicted, but perhaps no one in this city has endured with greater resignation than Mrs. Young who for 12 years has been afflicted with creeping paralysis. For eight years she has been unable to move from her bed, except when assisted to her chair, where she spent the greater portion of that time. Her friends and neighbors have marveled at her cheerfulness and although compelled to suffer with intense pain at times, she never failed to have a pleasant word for everyone who called.
The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon, at 1:30 o'clock at the Methodist church.

Additional Locals
Lyman BRACKETT, today, drove Roy DENISTON's Chalmers, which was damaged last week in an accident, to Detroit, where the body will be repaired.

Abram J. WHITTENBERGER died last Saturday at the farm home east of Claypool at the age of 82 years, 6 months and 3 days. The remains were brought to Akron, Monday afternoon. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. JONES, of Anderson, and interment in I.O.O.F. cemetery. He is survived by four children and aged companion. Mr. Whittenberger was the eighth son of Wm. & Joanna WHITTENBERGER, one of the families that came to Akron the first day of July, 1836, when the Red men were the only residents. The subject of this sketch resided with the parents until young manhood, but kept in touch with his locality all his life, as pioneer memories and family ties were firmly rooted in his affections. Of this remarkable family of ten brothers and one sister, two brothers yet remain and attended the funeral. They are Hiram [WHITTENBERGER], the youngest of the ten, a resident of Larwill, Indiana, aged 78, and Daniel [WHITTENBERGER], of Akron, aged 88. It was a pathetic scene to see the aged brothers bending in sorrow over the beloved brother who mourned with them April 24 of this year, when their brother, Thomas [WHITTENBERGER], was laid to rest by the side of . . . . Abram's tomb.
One noticeable feature of this funeral occasion, was the friends and I.O.O.F. lodge were conveyed from Claypool in automobiles. The historical biography gave an account of the pioneer families cutting saplings, making their own road as they traveled from Medina county, Ohio, in 1836. Also in 1849 Mr. Whittenberger and brother Thomas, Wm. SIPPY, George McCLOUD and another comrade journeyed to the Pacific coast and located at Marysville, California. They made the journey with an oxen team over the Rockies, through the prairies and the desert land. Two of this company lived to return to the beloved homeland. Mr. McCloud died and was buried in the desert. It is truly remarkable that one lifetime should be long enough to witness such changes in the way of travel from the brush cutting to the automobile. Mr. Whittenberger was a man of very even temperment, always extending hospitality and assistance to every one, and when in health, was unusually active in church and lodge matters.

Is Rival of Local Creamery
BEYER BROS. have many competitors in butter making, especially among farmers wives, but Mrs. John DOWNS, south of Rochester, probably makes more butter than any other woman in the community.
She has done away with the old fashioned hand churn, and has hitched her churn to a gasoline engine, which every morning assists her in making 15 or 20 pounds of the necessity. Every step in the manufacture is in accordance with the latest improved methods.
Sixteen cows are milked just for butter making. The butter when made is formed into bricks and packed in cartons the same as the creamery product. Every Saturday the butter, about 120 pounds, is delivered. As Mrs. Downs' butter is better than ordinary, she receives more than the market price.

John DUNN, plumber for ROBBINS & RITCHEY, has left the city for a few days vacation. A matrimonial venture is rumored.

Mrs. Clara HUNT was born in Pennsylvania August 19th 1852, the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. George BOOKS. When very young she came with her parents to Ohio and later they moved to Indiana. In 1876 she was married to William HUNT to which union were born John [HUNT], who now lives in Bushnell, Illinois, and Louis [HUNT], of this city.

Wanted to See Wife Dead
"The happiest moment of my life will be when I look on your face in the coffin," are the words Mrs. Omar CONGER alleges her husband has spoken to her, as well as names and epithets too vile to mention in a complaint for divorce filed today.
The suit was filed through her attorney Henry BIBLER. It states that they were married May 28, 1898, and lived together until the fifth of this month, on which day the defendant left her and their adopted daughter, Mildred [CONGER], 12 years old. For two years Conger has not provided for her, and in order to obtain food and clothing she has had to take in washings. He also gave notice to various grocers and butchers about the city not to allow her to have supplies unless she paid for them.
She asks that a divorce be granted, that the adopted daughter be given into her charge, and that she be given $500 alimony. She also asks that an allowance for her support be given her until the case is decided.

As he grew up, he learned the trade of a cabinet maker and following a general trend, he came West in 1856, when he was 22 years of age. Here he met and married Miss Aletha SMITH and to their union were born these children, Minnie [BARKDOLL], who is dead, Schuyler [BARKDOLL], of Detroit, and Trude [BARKDOLL], who lives here. Some time after the death of his first wife, he married Miss Sue STRADLEY. To them were born John [BARKDOLL], Nora [BARKDOLL], George [BARKDOLL], Elsie [BARKDOLL] and James [BARKDOLL], all now deceased, except James, who lives in Denver, Colo. Mrs. Barkdoll died a good many years ago. One sister, Mrs. Chris. HOOVER, is living. There are a number of grandchildren living.

Has Lived Near Akron 77 Years
Akron, Indiana, August 30. -- Daniel WHITTENBERGER, one of Fulton county's most honored pioneers, is a resident of Akron. Mr. Whittenberger was the fifth son of Wm. and Joanna WHITTENBERGER, was born in Beaver county, Penn., April 24, 1825; emigrated to Medina county, Ohio, in 1831, with the parents; later the family moved to the "far west," locating in what is now Akron, in July, 1836.
Eight families composed this colony. They loaded their scanty household possessions on wagons drawn by oxen; they moved some cows and hogs, and on June 1st, 1836, commenced the journey for the new home in the "land of promise." At the expiration of thirty days, at 4 p.m., they unyoked their oxen, put the bells on them and turned them to grass. The journey had been a tedious one, the traveling facilities somewhat different from those of today. One of the colonists, Dr. Joseph SIPPY, had visited the route the preceeding summer, seeking a location, where they might establish homes for their large families. Dr. Sippy was a man of great courage and discerned large possibilities in this section of mammoth timber, hazel brush and wild berries. He was the recognized leader of the colonists, viz: Alfred [WELTON] and Asher WELTON, N. COGSHALL, Henry BRISTOL, Moses WORDEN, Starling CROSBY, Alfred FRAGG and Wm. WHITTENBERGER.
Upon the arrival of the company, Mrs. Whittenberger, a sister of Dr. Sippy, was somewhat discouraged, thought the outlook for providing food and raiment for her ten sons was not flattering and propounded the following questions to her brother. When he had announced "this is the place," she said, "Why, Joseph, where are we? Where have you brought us? When can we get back home? How will we support our children? Where will we get something to eat? Have you brought us here to starve?" Joseph replied, "Why, Anna, we will go back to Egypt, there we can get flour and plenty to eat. The "Egypt" referred to was Goshen, the journey had been through southern Michigan touching White Pigeon, Goshen and Warsaw in this state. The journey from six miles on this side of Warsaw was made over ground where wagon wheel had never rolled and the company cut saplings and brush, in order to reach the destination. The idea of retracing to "Egypt" was not particularly joyful as it would require at least one week to go, buy the wheat, get it ground and return with the flour.
The company cut poles on their arrival and stretched the canvas brought for that purpose and pitched their tents or wigwams upon the ground about where the Exchange Bank and M.E. church now stands. Logs were put together with pins; the doors were made from the boxes brought with them in which their goods were packed. Daniel remarked these were his first lessons in the carpenter trade that he plied when he grew to manhood.
The next year wheat flour was scarce, but a good corn crop provided them with Johnny cake baked on the hearth before the fire in the huge fireplace; this corn was ground at the Pottawattomie mills, established for the Indians by the government. This was before the birth of Henry township. Mr. Whittenberger remembers when a meeting of prominent pioneers was called near Mr. Zion for the adjustment of a disputed strip of land adjoining Kosciusko, Miami and Wabash counties; his father attended and when Henry HOOVER suggested the tract be named "Henry" township it met the hearty approval of all present and the cheers were loud and long. It was a great event. The first mail route was over the Indian trail to Ft. Wayne, touching North Manchester, Liberty Mills, and Roanoke. Hiram WELTON and Wm. WHITTENBERGER, Jr., were the mail carriers. They made the trip on horseback every two weeks. This was considered a great advantage for Newark and Wesley P.O. Alfred Welton was the P.M., prior to this. Any mail for the pioneers came to Rochester, so there was general rejoicing over this convenience.

In the summer of '38 a log school house was erected, the following winter there was the advantage of subscription school. Daniel could not attend for lack of shoes; the elder brothers had secured footwear and were in attendance. Shoes could not be procured nearer than Michigan City, consequently Daniel and his younger brothers, must remain at home until father could provide shoes for them. In '39 all of them went to school and the parents fully realized what it meant to provide for ten sons. The noon day lunch, at school, consisted of a square of Johnny cake. Perseverance was the family watchword and they were rewarded by six of the boys becoming teachers in "Deestrict Skules." Daniel well remembers his first application for teacher's license. He was conscious of his rural appearance and said he "trembled." He succeeded, however, and taught a school for $15.00 per month and board "around among the scholars." He remarks, "No one knows what we had to go through."
At night they studied from the light of a "tallow dip" candle and firelight. As years rolled on, Daniel was preparing for general usefulness; he served an apprenticeship with his brother Jacob in the first cabinet shop, at the same time was deputy postmaster for Jacob. When he was fifteen years of age, Lot N. BOZARTH, County Clerk, Auditor and Recorder, tendered him a position as assistant. He says his bashfulness prevented him from accepting the same; says he preferred playing with the Indians and was as friendly and fond of playing with them as Uncle Del WARD. Daniel helped work on the frame of the POTTOWATTOMIE MILL, erected by SMITH and TABOR, at Rochester. Before it was completed he went to Morrow, Ohio, to spend two years learning the carpenter trade, after which he returned to Akron and has lived there ever since. There are several houses in Akron that he built after his return in 1851. On February 2, 1852, he was united in marriage with Miss Fanny McCLOUD and together they journeyed through life until March, 1907, the death angel summoned the beloved wife. Three children blest their home, Charles A. [WHITTENBERGER], Scott [WHITTENBERGER] and Mrs. Laura VICKREY. Charles went to the great beyond in September, 1908.
Mr. Whittenberger has lived a wonderful life -- 88 years of age last April, and is strong seemingly, as forty years ago, with the exception of deafness.
He has always been identified with progression, high standards and his work in the church has been freighted with much good. He has helped to build three Methodist churches in this place. He was at one time Justice of the Peace in Henry township; invited to accept the place, his commission was under Gov. Morton. His correct principles and industry, and even temperment, all these years won scores of friends, many, many, that long since passed to life eternal. It has been his privilege afforded by his long life to assist many less fortunate than himself to a higher plane of life. He has seen Akron transformed from a wilderness inhabited by the wild men to a town of enterprise equal to that of many cities. He witnessed schools established by subscription, until we have a high class commissioned school of learning. The log huts pinned together have been transplanted by spacious residences. The Indian trail has given way to public highways. He rode to Akron on the first wheel that ever came in. He saw the steam railroad come, and the automobile appear. In 1852 his home was established in the hazel brush on the spot where he now lives and the Indian trail past their place is now the Winona interurban. The road from which he cut saplings in the 1st day of July, 1836, is now a paved street. Mr. Whittenberger quietly remarked the paving allotted to him is only 374 lineal feet for farm land. He stated he had no particular objection to the paving of the streets, if the town was ready No sanitary measures have been taken, no fire protection of any kind, only one public well and not a single bucket in case of a conflagration. Not a very unreasonable suggestion, it is thought by many.
Mr. Whittenberger's grandparents were Revolutionary soldiers and it is with honest pride he points to it. He looks after his own business affairs; his activity and clear ideas regarding same are worthy of emulation. In summing the events of his life, he said -- "In all my crooks and wanderings, I have been moderately successful, and am possessed of a few thousand dollars, with which to provide the comforts of declining years."

His friends wish him many happy years in the sunset of life.

[photo of Mr. & Mrs. Samuel STAHL]

The oldest couple of Fulton county live in Leiters Ford. Their picture is produced on this page and the reader can easily see that the years have not rested lightly on them. Their hair is as white as snow and the eye has lost its color, but nature's compensation, the contentment which can only end a life well spent, has taken its place. Samuel STAHL will be 92 years old his next birthday and his mate, with whom he has lived for 64 years, will be 86. They live alone in their home in the small village, do all of their own work and Mr. Stahl makes daily trips to the post office. They have all that they want and are perfectly happy and only occasionally, as Mrs. Stahl said to the reporter who visited them, are they ever discontented. Then they want to move back to the farm as she does not like town life.
Samuel Stahl is the only survivor of the Mexican war living in this county. He was born near Canton, Ohio, April 25, 1822, and enlisted in company K, third Ohio. After the war, Mr. Stahl returned to Ohio and September 11th, 1850, he was married to Mary RUFNER, his boyhood sweetheart. They were raised practically together as their homes were on adjoining farms in Ohio. In 1856 they moved to Fulton county and on July fourth of that year, purchased 180 acres just east of Leiters Ford. The county, as all old settlers know, was very wild. Game abounded and deer were plentiful. Their younger days were spent in hard work clearing the farm, which today is one of the best in the county.
While living here five children were born, four of whom are living, Mrs. William LUCUS, Mrs. A. C. CAPRON, of Rochester, Mrs. Nancy SALES, of Leiters Ford and Benjamin STAHL, who lives three miles southwest of Leiters.
Mr. Stahl has been a democrat all his life. His first presidential vote was cast for Buchanan.
Mr. Stahl says that he owens his long life to his regular habits and which were taught to him by his father. His grandfather, Jacob MILLER, lived to be 103 years old. Mr. Stahl uses tobacco, but all his life has only been a moderate user of liquor. He never took a drop of medicine until he was past 70 years of age.
Mrs. Stahl, who was born April 23, 1828, comes from a family who lived to be very old. Her grandmother, Mary FREEBERGER, died at the extreme age of 104. Her grandfather, John FREEBERGER, lived to be 99 years of age. Her father, John RUFNER, was 93 years old when he died. The aged couple can read and write without the aid of glasses. They are of German descent and member of the Christian church.
As an example of the poor methods of communications of 1860, Mr. Stahl said that when he moved to this county he lost track of his mother and to this day does not know where she was, when she died or anything about her after he left Ohio. He said that all of his letters were returned to him.

Pass Eighty But Are Still Active
Two of the best known old men in this county are William WARD, better known as "Uncle Dell" and Chris HOOVER, called by all his friends "Chris." [photo of "Uncle Dell" Ward] Active as most men at the age of 50, at their places of business every day, Uncle Dell Ward, who is past 87 years old and Chris Hoover, who will soon be 85, take a lively interest in current affairs and are deeply interested in local politics. "Their active interest in everything, their close attention to business, have not allowed them time to get old" as Mr. Ward expressed it.
"Uncle Dell" Ward was born in New York state, February 29th, 1826. He has been a resident of this county since 1831. He is the last survivor of his family. [photo of "Chris" Hoover]
Christian HOOVER was born in Pennsylvania and moved to this county when he was 21 years old. He has been in business in this city for over 60 years.

Says Long Life is Due to Habits
So you want to take my picture? Well, just tell them for me that the old dutchman is feeling fine and expects to live many years longer. Such was some of the answers given to a Sentinel representative who talked to Conrad MEHLING, 92 years old who lives in Richland township and who visits Rochester very often. Only the replies were made with a decided German accent. [photo of Conrad Mehling] Mr. Mehling was born in Nassau, Germany, and did not come to this country until he was 19 years of age.
There are several principles that Mr. Mehling is proud of, that he has been a life long democrat, a good Christian and a non user in the past 25 years of either tobacco or liquor. He says that his long life has been due to his temperate habits, his trust in God which were instilled him by his parents in Germany and later by his good wife, Katherine, who died several years ago.
For a man of 92 years, Mr. Mehling is very active, reads withut glasses and takes an active interest in current events. Mr. Mehling came to this country in 1851 with his wife. He first settled in Ohio, where he stayed for two years and later went to South Bend, where he helped to build the old court house, as he is a stone mason by trade. He then moved to Winamac, Ind., where he bought 120 acres of land for $400. After staying there for two years, he sold his farm, and with 50 other German families, moved in the neighborhood of what is now Germany, Ind. They made the trip over land with ox teams. He is now the last of the German families who settled in the vicinity of Germany. Mr. Mehling has two children living, Mrs. Katherine MILLER, who lives in Union township, and who is 70 years of age, and Henry MEHLING who lives in Henry township.
Mr. Mehling united with the Presbyterian church when he was 14 years old. He says he never forgets his prayers. Mr. Mehline is a great friend of the ZIMMERMAN family, in this city, and spends a great amount of his time while here at Val ZIMMERMAN's store.

James S. AULT, son of Mr. & Mrs. O. S. AULT, was born in Rochester, Indiana, August 1st, 1893. Here he lived for a period of sixteen years, when his parents moved to Washington. After coming to Everett, Washington, he entered the high school and specialized in manual training. The confinement in the class room and dust attendant on the work of the machinery, impaired his health and he was compelled to discontinue his studies, a victim of the great white plague.
James was popular with the young people of Everett, especially in the school, where he was best known. His friends remembered him when sick, and gave proof of their interest in many ways. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and during his sickness often expressed his appreciation of the early religious training received in his home. A few days before his death he partook of the sacrament. Five weeks at a saanitarium brought him no relief. He rapidly declined from the very first appearance of his trouble, and died at 6 p.m. Wednesday, August 27, 1913. The funeral was held at Chalacombe's undertaking parlors on Friday, August 29, at two o'clock. . . . . The burial was in Evergreen cemetery.

Former Marshal Leaves Wife
The desertion of his wife by John DODGE, former marshal of this city, and her action in seeking refuge with Rochester friends, have called forth many expressions of sympathy for the woman, whose story is a common, yet most lamentable one.

Fight for Life Proves Futile
Hugh FOGLESONG, a student of Indiana University, a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, and a young and popular man of this city, died at the home of his parents Thursday night at 12:00 o'clock, as the result of injuries sustained when a can of oil exploded, burning him from his neck to his feet. The accident happened Monday night, September 15th, and the victim made a brave but futile fight for life.
Tetanus set in Wednesday, and it with the effects of the burns brought about the end. Anti-tetanus serum was administered Thursday night, but in vain.
The death of Hugh Foglesong, who was but 22 years of age, is one of the saddest that has happened in this city in many years. When the fatal accident took place he was preparing to enter college for his last year's work.
A diligent student and a popular young man, he had a brilliant future in college as in the local schools he made many friends, was a lover of music and an excellent athlete. He will be missed by everybody who knew him.
The accident which caused Hugh Foglesong's death happened late Monday night when he returned in a drenching rain with his companion, Lyman BRACKETT. In attempting to start a fire in a stove, Hugh poured some oil out of a can into the grate. When the oil reached the coals in the fire place, a terrible explosion took place throwing the blazing oil over the young man. He ran from the house into the back yard where with the aid of his companion the blaze was extinguished but not until all the clothes over the upper part of his body were completely burnd away.
From that time on everything possible was done to aid the injured young man to recover. Night and day since the accident took place the attending physicians and nurses have made a continuous fight to prolong life. The interest and wishes of the entire community have been for his recovery but complications set in which the physicians could not combat and he passed away Thursday night after long suffering.
Hugh I. Foglesong was born at Roann, Ind., December 20th, 1890, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Henry FOGLESONG. After living at Plymouth and Walkerton for several years he moved with his parents to Rochester in 1903, where he entered the public schools. In 1909 he graduated from the Rochester High School and later entered Purdue University where he remained for two years. The next fall he entered Indiana University at Bloomington Ind., and before his death had plans completed to finish his course at Indiana during the coming year. He was studying for a degree in chemistry.
He was enrolled as a member of the Presbyterian church, the Emanon club at Purdue, and the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, at Indiana. He is an accomplished musician and during the past summer played at a local theater. He was also a member of the Purdue and Manitou bands.
The funeral will be held at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. S. A. STEWART, officiating. Those wishing may call at the house Saturday morning or Sunday morning between nine and twelve o'clock.

Mrs. Elsie D. SHAW, of Chicago, and Mrs. Alice LEININGER, of Angola, are here to attend the funeral of Hugh FOGLESONG. They are his mother's sisters.

Attempts Death Near Old Home
Roscoe COOK, 33, formerly in the grocery business here, and a brother of Mrs. John McCLUNG, who lives southeast of here, slashed his throat in attempt at suicide on a Winona interurban car just after it had left Peru, late Friday afternoon. The wounds inflicted were not fatal and Cook was taken off the car at Akron, and removed to the home of his mother. Despondency brought on by ill health is thought to have caused the deed.
It will be remembered that Cook and his brother, Theodore [COOK], ran a grocery store, south of the public square some 15 years ago. At the time of the Spanish-American war, Roscoe enlisted, served his time and then came here. After that he went West, where he married, and worked as a telegraph operator. Recently, ill health caused him to cease work. Early in the week he left his home in Nebraska and started to Indianapolis, where his brother is in business.
On reaching the city, he was unable to locate Theodore, and telephoned to his mother, Mrs. Mary COOK, who resides at Akron, in an effort to learn the address. She was unable to understand who was speaking or what was wanted. Her son then left Indianapolis, going to Peru, where he took a Winona car for Akron. Soon after the car had left Peru, the motorman, in passing through, noticed blood by Cook's seat, but thought that he had the nose bleed. A traveling man convinced him differently, and took away the razor. First aid was given until Akron was reached, and there the man was placed in a physician's care.
It was found that the throat was cut from ear to ear, but that neither the jugular vein or the wind pipe was severed. He will recover. Mrs. John McClung was hurried to his bedside in a motor car and the Indianapolis brother was notified. Mr. Cook is said to be suffering from cancer of the stomach, and it is thought that this, coupled with his disappointment at not being able to find his brother, brought about the deed. His wife and several children are in Nebraska.

Charles Caffyn Dies in Nebraska
Charles W. CAFFYN, ex-county auditor and well known resident of this city died Friday night in Lincoln, Neb., according to a telegram received here this morning from Mrs. CAFFYN, who was with her husband at the time of death. Mr. Caffyn was past 70 years of age.
The news came as a shock to local relatives, as they have been under the impression that Mr. Caffyn was gaining in health. A few weeks ago he left Rochester to consult physicians in Minnesota. After staying there a few days he and Mrs. Caffyn went to Lincoln, Nebraska, to visit his sister. Here he seemed to get better and the telegram received this morning by his daughter, Mrs. AWALT, was very much unexpected. Death was caused by anemia.
Charles Caffyn has been for many years prominent in local affairs and for two terms held the position as county auditor. He has always taken a prominent part in politics.
Deceased was born in Decatur, Ind., November 12, 1842, the son of John and Sarah CAFFYN. His early education was received in the schools of that county and later he attended the high school at Kokomo for two years. His early life was spent on the farm. In May, 1886, he was married to Josephine ELAM. To this union there was born one child, now Mrs. May AWALT, who survives him. Mrs. Caffyn died in 1882 and a few years later Mr. Caffyn married Emma AWALT, who survives him. One child was born to this union, Walter CAFFYN.
After moving to Rochester, Mr. Caffyn engaged in the dry goods business for several years. Of late years he was engaged in the contracting business and with Marion CARTER, of this city, did considerable work in the South.
The funeral arrangements have not been made, but the body will be brought here for burial. His son, Walter, and daughter, Mrs. Awalt, are here at the present time.

Flagstaff Has Some History
Rochester's CITY HALL is now adorned by a FLAGSTAFF which once graced a World's Fair building in Jackson park, Chicago.
The story runs like this. Some 13 years ago, Marshal Jack CHAMBERLAIN had occasion to purchase some materials of the Chicago House Wrecking company. He made a trip the the Windy city to get the timber, and the man who attended to his wants called his attention to the flagstaff which was being put in order, telling him where it had been used.
The Marshal kept the 12 foot piece of pine until the othr day, when he donated it to the city, for the purpose of capping the city hall tower. On special occasions, Old Glory will blossom forth at the peak of the old staff, which looked down on countless thousands in Chicago more than a score of years ago.

Reminiscences of County Bar
LeRoy ARMSTRONG, formerly a reporter on the Sentinel, and now a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah, where he is still engaged in the newspaper writing, learning of the recent death of Hon. M. L. ESSICK, has recalled to mind and written some things about the deceased dean of the Fulton County Bar. A letter to the Sentinel says:
Long, long time ago I sat for the first time in the Fulton county court room and listened to the arguments of lawyers. I may be pardoned if I place my old, very dear friend SLICK at the very top of the worshipful administration. His sonorous voice, his calm assumption of mastery, his keen distinction of the crucial point in the case, his eloquence in debate, his winning against handicaps, his loyalty to friends -- these may excuse my indication of partiality. But it doesn't lessen my sorrow at the death of Mr. Essick.
There were -- doubtless are now -- many able lawyers in Rochester. George HOLMAN was one of them. Just coming into his own as I left the town. JAMISON and CALKINS were earlier leaders of the bar there, but they passed on. And there was Enoch STURGEON, who died before he should; and Col. [Kline G.] SHRYOCK, picturesque to the last; and Enoch MYERS, who wouldn't have had his cross eyes corrected for any money; and Milo SMITH, whose black and white plaid necktie lives in my memory; and Isaiah CONNOR, whose red whiskers betrayed him at last, and turn[ed] gray; and in the long ago Isaac Washington BROWN, who practiced at the bar before he heard the call of the bird and the hum of the bee, and there were others: BIBLER and MONTGOMERY and METZGER, who may seem like veterans to the rest of you, but who were not admitted to the practice in the heroic days when Essick was strongest.
I remember him as a droll fellow, with a high pitched and drawling voice, but a twinkling eye and a keen sense of humor. I reported the VANDERKARR trial away back in the seventies, one of the few murder trials for the blemishing of the county, and wanted a few lines of biography about different lawyers in the case. Essick came up to the office of CALKINS and SLICK while the latter lawyer was giving me data. Slick, speaking of Calkins, said, "He was a member of the Legislature," and there Essick interrupted him with his inimitable drawl: "Where he once distinguished himself by seconding a motion to adjourn." Calkins was sitting at the window, smoking, and he burst out with a laugh so loud that he startled Jonathan DAWSON, on the sidewalk below. By the way, I printed Essick's interruption in my report of the trial and Calkins never forgave me.
Absolute honesty is the Essick quality which left his personal impression on me most deeply. It wasn't cant or pretense. It was in the fibre of the man. He was a good lawyer, a good soldier, a good citizen, and the influence he exerted will not pass away. It is worth while to have lived such a life as his. I don't suppose any other sort of life is worth while. -- LeROY ANDERSON.

Letter From Former Citizen
The writer of the following letter will be remembered by many of the older citizens of Rochester. He organized the CITIZENS BAND and at one time was known as the best cornet player in the state.
Kansas City , Mo., Sept. 30, 1913. -- My Dear Friend Mr. Vivian ESSICK:
I wish to share a part of your sorrow, because of the loss of your dear father. He was one of my warmest friends. I might call him a life long friend, for I knew him so many years. I knew him in the year 1866, when he bought the printing office from FULLER. I was a printer then and worked at the Sentinel office, and in spite of our difference in politics, we were always good friends. He loved music and we often in after years talked of the great happiness one could get when absorbed in the higher classics -- he was always a listener when it was possible at any of my concerts and I never wondered at your being a musician. I have lost many of my Rochester friends -- until it would seem your father surely must be the last of the older citizens. When I read the weekly papers, I see none but strange names any more, when but a few years ago I would know every stranger who came to town. Now I believe should I walk upon the main thoroughfare things would seem so strange I would perhaps ask the first person I met to tell me who I was. I hope you are still playing in the band of which I claim to be the father, and that you will give to them (all) my best wishes particularly all who knew me. From yours, etc. J. G. PEARSON.

Wife Sent Money at Man's Request
Eliza SELDON vs Robert SELDON for divorce.
The above complaint was filed in the Fulton circuit court some time ago and will be brought to trial next week. It is supposed the defendant will not appear and Mrs. Seldon will get her divorce. He is now in California and she is working every day as dish washer at the AMERICAN CAFE.
But behind this suit and which is not entered in the complaint, is a story of a man's ingratitude which is seldom equaled. Robert Seldon will be remembered by many people in Rochester as a paper hanger and painter, a stout hearty man well able to work. Becoming tired, it is supposed of his hard working wife, he took $50 of her money, about a year ago, and went to California, promising to send for her.
After seven months, he, it is said, wrote to her, saying that the state was no good for work, and that he wanted to come back, asking her to send him the money. As she worked every day, saving money, to go to California, she had over $50 which she sent to him at once. He never came back to Indiana, and is supposed to be in California. Soon after Mrs. Seldon filed suit for divorce alleging desertion.

Up until the past two months, Myers had made his home in Colorado Springs, but since that time has resided in Pueblo, Colo., being connected with the Elite photography shop there. A month after he left the Springs, a friend there had a letter from a woman who signed herself a registered nurse, telling of his death from pneumonia.

Suicide Rumor is Dispelled
The rumor which has been current that Mrs. Ira WALTERS, of Leiters Ford, committed suicide, was dispelled this week when after a post mortem examination no poison of any nature was found in the body.
Mrs. Walters, a resident of Leiters, died at the Woodlawn hospital, September 16th, after a short illness and at that time the attending physicians were unable to find any cause for her death. It was rumored in her home at Leiters Ford, that she had taken morphine. Several of the internal organs were then analyzed in South Bend, but no trace of anything that might cause death was found.
The case is a most peculiar one and physicians frankly say that they do not know what caused her death. Friends who are acquainted with the family and the trouble that occurred, say that Mrs. Walters died of a broken heart. But physicians hold that no person ever died of grief. The cause of Mrs. Walters death will probably always remain a mystery.

Rochester-Mais Company is Dead

At a meeting of the officers, directors and most of the stock holders of the ROCHESTER-MAIS TRUCK CO., Tuesday night, it was decided that bankruptcy proceedings should be started at once and a receiver appointed for the now defunct company. The action has been pending for a long time and will come as a surprise to few.
The company was started early last spring and began building trucks under the supervision of John MAIS. However, only a very little stock was subscribed and when the company began business they were barely able to buy sufficient machinery and material for the building of the first three trucks and after one truck had been built and taken upon its trial trip operations were ceased on account of a lack of money. Since that time there has been nothing doing, although there was still material for another truck.
At Tuesday evening's meeting the bankruptcy proceedings were decided upon and as soon as all of the stockholders have agreed to the procedure the action will be taken. The assets and liabilities of the company have not yet been determined, but Secretary E. A. MILLER stated that there would probably be about $700 in assets and about $1,700 in liabilities.

Omer Engle Again Assaults Woman
Akron, Ind., Nov. 29. -- The citizens of this town almost witnessed a lynching here Friday afternoon when Omer ENGLE, a former resident of Akron, attempted to assault Mrs. Hattie BRAKE, a young woman, who is cooking for a gang of laborers on the Erie. Engle was saved from death by several men in the mob who promised that he should receive his just dues in court.
This is Engle's third arrest upon a charge of the same nature. Several months ago he was arrested and fined in Rochester where he attempted to assault Miss Vera METZ. Several years ago he was arrested at Winamac on a similar charge. He is a single man about 30 years of age. He is well known over the county and in Rochester.
After the attempt at assault which occurred along the Erie tracks Friday afternoon Engle fled to a near-by woods where he was captured and held. Several men went for a rope but before they could return other men brought him here where he was lodged in jail. The woman was not injured but badly frightened as the result of her experience. Engle will be given a preliminary hearing before Justice HOOVER Monday and then taken to Rochester where he will be lodged in jail to await trial in the circuit court.
The dastardly attempt took place while Mrs. Brace was returning from Akron where she had been buying some groceries. She was walking along the track when a freight approached and while it was passing Engle jumped out of a box car, as the train was moving very slow. He started to approach Mrs. Brake and attempted to grab her. She started to run and fell down, all the time screaming for help. Engle then drew a gun and threatened to kill her if she did not keep quiet. Noticing some men running toward him Engle stopped his efforts and ran for the woods.
There were about 50 men in the gang and they at once surrounded the timber and easily effected the capture of the man. He at once denied everything and said that he was married and had three children in Akron. His captors threatened him with hanging and two men started after a rope. In the mean while the mob held him in the woods and gave him some punishment which he so richly deserved. Cooler heads prevailing, he was then taken to Akron and lodged in jail where he will be given a preliminary Monday.
Mrs. Brake was hysterical after the assault and was taken to a near-by farm house. She is about 28 years of age and is very pretty. Feeling is very bitter here against Engle.

Two Couples Wed
Frank THOMPSON and Tressie NICODEMUS, both of Akron, were married this afternoon at the clerk's office by Rev. A. S. WARRINER.

Fall of 20 Feet Proves Fatal
Sylvester A. SPOHN died at the Woodlawn hospital Friday night as the result of injuries received when he fell a distance of 20 feet while painting at the ROCHESTER CANNING FACTORY one week ago last Thursday. His death was directly due to tetanus which developed Thursday.
The death of Mr. Spohn is a great shock to his relatives and friends. The accident which caused his death was totally unexpected and under any circumstances could not have been avoided. He at the time was working with his son-in-law, Charles HENDRICKS, on a scaffold 20 feet above the ground, the board upon which they were standing being fastened to two ladders. One round of the ladder broke letting the scaffold fall.
Mr. Spohn was picked up unconscious and at the hospital it was discovered that his left leg was broken in two places. Mr. Hendricks escaped with several severe bruises. One week ago the attending physicians set Mr. Spohn's broken limb, screwing vanadium steel into the bone for supports. This operation proved fatal as infection caught in the bone soon after and despite the use of anti-toxin, he passed away suffering with tetanus. He was past 60 years of age.
During his life as a painter, Mr. Spohn has suffered some very bad falls. Several years ago he fell off of DENISTON's elevator and was confined to his home for several months. One time he fell while painiting a high bridge and his fellow workmen for a while thought that he was dead.
Sylvester Spohn was born in Rochester, July 29, 1853, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Henry SPOHN. After living on the farm for 25 years, he learned the painters trade which he followed until his death. He was first married to Sarah DAVIS who died after five years. No children were born to this union. Two years later he was married to Mrs. Anna MANN. One child was born to them. She is now Mrs. Nellie HENDRICKS.
Besides his wife and daughter, Mr. Spohn leaves three brothers, two sisters: Isaiah [SPOHN], Richard [SPOHN] and Sidney [SPOHN] and Mrs. Amanda MILLER of South Bend and Mrs. Jacob BROWN of this city. He was a member of the United Brethren church. The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon at two o'clock at the home. All friends who wish to call may view the body Sunday morning after ten o'clock.

Samuel Hughston Called by Death
Samuel HUGHSTON, 62, one of the best known horsemen in the county, and who has been connected with local livery barns for 32 years, died Wednesday night at his home on Jefferson street, after an illness of six weeks. His death was due to heart trouble.
Mr. Hughston, known to everyone as "Sam," died as he had lived and even in his last hours worried about the horses whose care had always been his constant thought. His reputation as a horseman was country wide and many a fast young driver has been warned by Sam to take better care of the animals or suffer the consequences. For the last 10 years he has been employed by CLARY & ONSTOTT.
Samuel Hughston was born in Chillicothe, Tennessee, February 22, 1851, the son of Mr. & Mrs. James HUGHSTON. In 1865 he moved to Rochester, where he lived for several years and then he moved to Illinois, where he stayed for two years, later moving to Kokomo, Ind., and in 1875 moving to Rochester. For several years he lived on the SHEPARD farm, north of Rochester. April 7th, 1877, he was married to Mrs. Alice ZARTMAN, whose maiden name was EVANS.
Besides his wife, Mr. Hughston had no living relatives.

Bridge Company Plant is Rushed
The securing of a contract for 562 tons of structural steel to be used in the erection of a Chicago school building, pushes the total amount of work ahead of the ROCHESTER BRIDGE COMPANY to something like 1,600 tons -- enough to keep them busy until March 1, 1914, if they take no more orders, which isn't probable.
The Chicago contract was secured Wednesday in the face of very strong competition, which makes the success of the bid all the more a matter of satisfaction to the local concern. Plans and specifications were taken Tuesday night, and by dint of an all night session, the estimate was ready at the required time Wednesday afternoon. The steel work on the building will be worth about $30,000.
The company now has over three million pounds of work ahead of it. "I doubt," said manager A. L. DENISTON, "whether there is a plant west of Pittsburgh with as much work in front of it as there is facing us. This latest contract is as big as any we ever had."

Stricken While Working on Farm
While working at the barn Thursday morning, John WHITE, a well known farmer living west of Rochester, suddenly suffered a stroke of paralysis and as a result died at nine-thirty o'clock Thursday night. He was 65 years of age.
Mr. White's death was very sudden. He was loading hogs at the barn when he was stricken. Mrs. White was the only other person near and she was unable to take her husband into the house until she secured the aid of several of the neighbors. Even with the help of two men, great difficulty was experienced in taking Mr. White to the home as he weighs 219 pounds.
Having lived for 38 years on the same farm and known over the county for his deep convictions, especially along political lines, the death of Mr. White is a loss to the community. He has always identified himself with the democratic party, and took much interest in local progress.
John L. WHITE was born in Owen county, Indiana, Aug. 19, 1848. About 34 years ago he moved to this county. In 1878 he was married to Caroline CASTLE. Eight children were born to them, seven of whom are living: Bessie SCHEUERMANN, of Mesick Mich., Clarence [WHITE], Raymond [WHITE] and Francis WHITE of Morris, Ill.; Mrs. Arthur MYER, of Rochester and Florence [WHITE] and Marie WHITE who are at home. He leaves one brother and one sister, William H. WHITE of Big Rapids, Mich., and Mrs. William BICK, of near Athens. Mr. White was a member of the Evangelical church.

Former Rochester Man Buys Town
A clipping from an Oroville, Cal., paper, states that two men have purchased a whole town for 12,000 dollars, one of them being a former resident of this city. The clipping states that the whole town of Keddie, Cal., has been sold, Robert F. KOONTNER having disposed of his store, blacksmith shop, postoffice, justice of peace office, butcher shop, numerous cottages and a controlling interest in the Oom Paul gold mine near there to C. C. PHILLIPS and Oscar SAGESE, of San Mateo county. These buildings, with the Western Pacific depot, comprise the whole town. The consideration is said to have been $12,000. C. O. Phillips will be remembered by many Rochester people, having taught the eighth grade at the South school building for many years. He moved to California about fifteen years ago, and has been prospecting since then.

Father Reads of Son Near Death
William ROSS, a former resident of this city, where he was blacksmith for many years, was horrified Saturday evening when he read in a Chicago paper at his home in Tippecanoe, Ind., that his son, Harold ROSS], a 19 year old boy working in the city, had attempted to commit suicide by jumping in front of an elevated train. The paper stated that the young man was fatally injured.
It was the first word that Mr. Ross had received concerning his son's accident and the news which came in such an informal way nearly prostrated the whole family. Mr. Ross came at once to Rochester, arriving here early Sunday morning when the telegraph office was closed and was unable to get a message through to the city.
Compelled to stand the suspense he waited for the early morning train which carried him to Chicago. Word was received from the father this afternoon that his son would live, though seriously injured. He dispelled the belief that the young man had attempted suicide and said that the injury was entirely accidental.
It seems that the boy who works in the postoffice in the city, took sick late in the evening and attempted to go home without hesitation. While waiting for his train he walked to near the edge of the platform and fell in front of the fast moving car. The city paper evidently did not attempt to sift the story.
His parents at home could hardly believe that their son had attempted suicide as he held a good position in the city and had no cause for worry. They were much relieved to hear that he will recover.
Harold Ross is well known here where he attended school for several years. His father moved from this city to Athens where he opened a blacksmith's shop.

Our Son's Death
Fredrick R. WALTZ was born January 5th, 1902 and died December 24, 1913. The accident which caused his death happened at the farm home while his brother, Jesse [WALTZ], was cleaning a new gun, which he had received for Christmas. Fred says to Jesse, "I can work father's gun" and with that remark, gets the gun from the bedroom. He places the gun to his shoulder and not being able to operate it in that position, he placed the butt on the floor and starts to push back the slide. The gun was a six shot hammerless and not being able to push the slide far enough back for the spring to catch, the gun was discharged when the slide came back the load striking him in the temple, killing him instantly. His brother, Jesse, grabbed him and carried him into the well house and then ran for help.
The funeral was held at the Christian church, Friday, December 26th. -- William WALTZ and family.
