Cuyahoga Falls Company . Sued
Judge N. D. Tibbals informed a
DemocBat reporter yesterday that
the Woods -will case would be heard
again at the next term of Common
The heirs to the estate have been
unable to reach any agreement as to
terms of settlement, although sev
eral attempts have been made to
make a distribution that would be
satisfactory to all parties concerned.
This seems impossible.
The case has already been heard
twice, the jury disagreeing both
times. On the first trial the jury
stood 8 to 4 to sot aside the will. Tho
last time 7 jurors voted in favor of
setting it aside and five lo sustain.
The costs in th first trial amounted
lo 327.52 and in the second to $680.35,
making a total of $1,007.87. The pe
tition was filed Oct. 29, 18. Since
that time 24 other pleadings have
been filed in the same action.
Motion to Vacate.
In the case of Michael -vs. Philip
Stein, the defendant has filed a mo
tion asking the court to vacate the
default" jffdgment. He allege that
previous to the date of taking the
fault judgment he made an agree
ment with the plaintiff by which he
was to pay him a certain amount at
stated periods. He says that he has
lived up to' the terms of the agree
ment and that he had no notice that
any judgment was to be asked for.
The defendants in the case of Mary
C. Shaffer' vs. A. C. McKnight et al.
have filed a motiou asking that the
plaintiff be ordered to give security
for costs. They have filed another
motion asking that her petition be
stricken from the files, on the ground
that it is not properly verified.
Action For Money.
The Principio Forge Co. has filed a
petition in Common Pleas court ask
ing judgment against the Falls Hol
low Stay Bolt Co. for $716.88, alleged
to be due on account.

Two weeks ago a strange dog came
into the yard and attacked the ca

tempted to part the animals. They
were in a fierce fight. The strange
dog caught the man's hand in its
teeth, lacerating the flesh to such an
extent that it bled freely. He paid
but little attention to the wound and
it apparently was about healed over.
Thursday his hand began to swell.
The unfortunate man was soon
seized with convulsions, which con

He suffered frightful agony, having
all the symptoms of the rabies. The

Akrox, Ohio, August 5, 1899.
To the Citizens of Akron :
The Akron Free Carnival and Street Fair, for the benefit of
every man, woman and child in the city, will be held Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13, 14, 15 and 16.
The work of arranging for and securing attractions, exhibits,
decorations, etc., has now progressed to such a point that we can
promise a Free Show, the equal of which has probably never been
given or attempted anywhere in the United States. It will be an
honor and credit to your city and its enterprise.
The task of advertising and making known wlutt we are to
have still remains largely to be done. Those having this work in
hand are exhausting every effort and means to make the Free Car
nival and Street Fair, with its myriads of attractions exhibits and
decorations, known in every nook and corner of the territory within
a radius of 100 miles, and their efforts will continue without cessa
tion until the last minute.
There is a way in which every person in the city can help in
this work, arid we appeal to every citizen to do his or her share.
Briefly stated, it is as follows : Your committee has prepared and
has had printed a neat circular, giving particulars of the Free
Carnival and Street Fair. We now wish that every citizen form
himself or herself into a committee of one to send a circular to
every person of their acquaintance who might be induced to come
to Akron during the Carnival and Fair.
The circulars will be supplied to all who request them, either
in person or by mail to the citizen who is not in businesss to
everybody, to the ladies as well as to the men. We solicit and appeal
for everybody's enthusiastic interest and assistance.
Show what you can do for your city.
If you can send out a hundred of these announcements, do so;
if only one, send that one, and do it at once.
Business men who have a large volume of correspondence in
the territory that will attend the Carnival and Fair, are urgently
requested to supply themselves liberally with the announcements,
and to use them on every possible occasion.
Don't lag don't drag attend to it at once don't wait to be
called on. Help your committee and your city by attending to the
matter yourself, and without delay.
Applications for the announcements may be made to H. L.
Snyder, secretary, room 313 Everett building, either in person or
P. E. WERNER,
Chairman Executive Committee.

In the August number of The
Message and Deaconess, a monthly
paper published in the interest of
foreign missions, at Oak Park, 111.,
is a letter from Miss Alice Means,
an Akron young woman who about a
year ago left here for Morbadad,
India, to do missionary work. Miss
Means' sister, Mary, is also in India
where she has been about fouryeais.
The young women both resided on
South Maple St., and are well
known in this city.
Miss Alice Means' letter is written
from Moibadad, India, and is as fol

I attended a Christian wedding

giving her hand to the groom, but
finally did it and everything passed
off pleasantly. We got a glance at
her face later in a corner where no
