Placed In One Grave.
Immense Crowd Attended
Of Mrs. Catherine Wise
and Ruth Swartz.
Mother Made Appeal to Akron
Important Statement of Dr. E. A.
An immense crowd attended the
funeral of Mrs. Catherine "Wise and
Ruth Swartz, at Greentown, Tues
The bodies of the two victims of
the frightful tragedy, enclosed in
plain black caskets, were placed side
by side in one grave in the quiet
The services, which weie an
nounced as private, were held at the
home of Mrs. Isaac Byerly, about
one inilo north of the village, at 2
o'clock. It was impossible to keep
the people from crowding into the
yard and hous. They a ero allowed
to view the remains of both mother
and daughter. Rev. Rutledge, pas
tor of the Methodist Episcopal
church, preached the funeral ser
mon. The bodies wre followed
to the cemetery by" the
largest funeral procession in
the history of the village.
It Js estimated that there were 3,000
people present, a large majority be
ing drawn through idle curiosity.
, No New Developments.
There are no new developments in
the case today. The village is full of
rumors, but none of the stories are
confirmed. The coroner has not pre
pared his transcript of the case.
It is generally believed that he will
make known the name of the man
who is responsible for the downfall
of Huth Swartz. He has the state
ments of several parties in relation
to this matter. No arrests have been
Visited by Mrs. Catherine
Makes a Statement.
Yesterday's DBsrocRAT stated that
an Akron physician had been called
upon by Mrs. Wise of Greentown in
company with her daughter, Euth
Swartz, last week. Mrs. Wise had
claimed that the doctor had stated
that he would send drugs to her for
the relief of her, daughter. This was
not satisfactory, but the mother came
back home and waited for the ar
rival of the drugs. They did not
come. "Finally," continued the ar
ticle, "she succeeded in getting the
doctor to make a trip from Akron to
Greentown. The doctor came,
smoked a cigar, declined to use in
strument'', refused to leave any
medicine and went away."
The physician above referred to is
Dr. E. A. Montenyohl, of Akron.
He denies the part which refers to
him promising to send drugs tc Mrs.
Wise. He said she was in a very de
termined mood and insisted upon an
examination. He told her that he
could not give a positive assurance
as to the girl's condition, but that
her suspicions were probably well
founded; that she had been enceinte
for about two months.
Offered Large Sum.
In conversation with a JDemocbat
reporter Dr. Montenyohl saidi.
"Mrs. Wise calied.on me the. flrst-j
Probably showers and thunder

of last week, Tuesday, shortly before
dinner. She repeatedly asked mo to
perform a criminal operation and
offered me $100 for the work. I re
fubed, telling her that f 1,000 would
be no more of a consideration. The
next I heard from her was last Fri
dav night. She sent a telephone
message for me to come to Green
town. I went. When I got there
she asked my advice regarding the
proper medicine to use, if she want
ed to attempt to perform the opera
tion. I declined to give her the in
formation. Then she asked me if I
would attend to the girl after she
(Mrs. Wise) had performed the
criminal operation. I ans-neredher
saying that it would be legitimate
business, but that I didn't want the
Accused School Teacher.
When interrogated as to who was
responsible for the girl's misfortune,
"Mrs. Wise told me last Tuesday
that it was a school teacher. Fur
ther than that I did not learn."

the Sherbondy Family
Crowd. Good Program.
The annual reunion of the Sher
bondy family and their friends was
held in the pleasant grove on Sher
bondy hill on Saturday, Aug. 5, and
to say that all who attended it en
joyed themselves and were pleased,
would be putting it very mildly.
There were piescnt 175 people, and if
it had not rained there would have
been double that number there. It
was raining when the hour arrived
for dinner and was still raining when
the last number on the program was
finished. S. A. Lane of Akron was
present and gave us one of his inter
esting lectures, vi hieh aie always en
joyed at such gatherings. The com
mittee of arrangements had provided
a large tent where the tables were
spread for the dinner, and several
small tents where the cooking was
done and the good things to eat were
stored, so the rain did not spoil that
part ol the program.
The tables were loaded with all of
the good things that the ladies only
know-how-io-prepara, and there was
abundance of them for all and as
many more, so none went hungry.
After dinner the tables were re
moved for the program, Avhich con
sisted of several very choice selec
tions of vocal and instrumental mu
sic, and the talks of S. A. Lane and
Gerald Brown, who served in the
late Spanish war. Mr. Brown
gave us a very nice history of the
war, and the experience he had in
getting to the front, and the return
to ills native sail. Ho was listened
to very attentively. After the pro
gram, then came the election of of
ficers for the coming year. Mr." Jay
Sherbondy was elected president;
Grace Wert, secretary ; Nellie Sher
bondy, corresponding secretary;
Walter Hawkins, treasurer.
The following committees were
also elected to serve: General ar
rangements. Thomas Sherbondy,
Perry Hall and Joseph Sherbondy;
music, D. Hiltabiddle, Dowitt Sher
bondy, William Wert and Abbie
Sherbondy. There were piesentfrom
the far west Mrs. Mary Cahow and
her daughter, Miss Anna Cahow,
who is spending the summer with
lelathes lieie. The time chosen for
holding the next reunion was the first
Saturday iu August, 1900, arid the
place was the same. A vote of
thanks was extended to those who
took part. They all returned to their
homes well pleased with the day and
the way it was spent.

The show at this popular lesort
this week is. as usual, one of high

BOOM THE FAIR.
Arrangements Are Progressing Suc

Communities, like individuals, iu
these days of progress, must hustle
if they are to keep up with the pro
cession. That is why Akron will
give a grand free carnival and street
fair on Wednesday, Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday, Sept. 13, 14, 15
Akron's citizens are positive that
they have the best big little city on
earth, and want the world, and all
their neighbors to know it. Akron
people want all their ont-of-town
friends to come and see them on the
above dates. When individuals en
tertain guests, something to amuse,
instruot and edify the callers is pro
vided. When communities enter
tain, the custom still holds and this
explanation is in brief the reason
why Akron will giv6 a grand $30,000
free carnival and street fair.
The Executive committee in its ar
rangements for the big event have,
among a multitude of other con
veniences, securen tor the occasion a
one-fare rate for the round trip on
all railroads running in to Akron.
Do not forget the wish of the ex
ecutive committee that every citizen
do all in his or her power toward
the success of this event, which is of
so direct interest to all, and which
cannot fail to be fruitful of bene
ficial results. Call on Secretary H.

hearty demonstration of approval.
Ray L. Royco, the prince of charac
