From Townline Comes a
Strange Story
Of Love Interrupted, Jeal

Letters Furnished to County
Detective Burlison

Either Knave or Fool.
Jealousy and poison !
This is the evil combination that
has caused hearts to ache at Town
line. The wedding has been postponed
and it is a question whether Cupid
or his old time enemy will gain the
victory.
Early last week Mr. G. E. Roborts,
an energetic grocer and farmer who
lives near Townline, got a license to
marry Miss Sadie Smith. The bride-to-be
is a Northfield young lady,
aged 23, a blonde, and fairly good
looking. Her mother is a widow.
After the license had been obtained
the intended bridegroom received a
letter, postmarked Hudson, threat
ening him and his cattle with de
struction if he did not ceaso his at
tentions to Sadie Smith.
A day or so later a note was re
ceived enclosing Paris green.showing
more plainly what was going to
happen to Mr. Roberts and his cat
tle. "
About the same time Mr. Roberts
found some of the poison mixed with
his cattle feed.
Even this did not cause the intend
ed bridegroom to falter in his pur
pose to marry Miss Sadie Smith un
til the following clumsy note, written
In capital letters, was found' on his
front porch Friday night:

County Detective James Burlison
of Akron, was sent for after the re
ceipt of these letters. He spent
Monday at Town Line and succeeded
in locating tho supposed author of
the letters.
He is a young man who has been
trying to force his attentions upon
Miss Smith.
When Detective Burlison advised
Mr. Roberts to marry Miss Smith at
once, he replied that he guessed he'd
"wait awhile and see what would
turn up." Meanwhile Miss Smith is
remaining at the Roberts home for
protection. Mr. Roberts has laid In
an armament of three revolvers and
will protect himself and property at
all hazards.
Detective Burlison says the author
of the letters has violated. thepostal
laws, in addition to being liable for
attempting to poison stock. The De
tective will return to Northfield to
resume the investigation after a
court ease in which he is a witness
is disposed of.

He was originally indicted more

Detectives' Story.
The case of Detectives Doran and
DeCelle of Cleveland against the
Commissioners of Summit county has
brought out many points of interest
relative to the arrest of Romulus
Cotell for the murder of Alvin N.
Stone and wife of Tallmadge in 1896.
Tee officers seek to recover $1,000 re
ward offered for the arrest and con
viction of the murderer. The defense
sets up the claim that the plaintiffs
worked upTntKrcas"e"TuTder a special"
contract. Detective James. Doran
was the first witness called in the
case. He carefully went over the
different steps which led np to the
capture of Cotell over three years
ago. He recited the way in which
the murderer escorted the officers
about the Stone premises thinking
ho was performing an act
of kindnes to the detectives
when. in reality he was
forging a chain of evidence which
was to convict himself of the hor
rible crime. Attorneys Collisterand
Hogau of Cleveland and Grant &
Sieber of this city represent the
plaintiffs. Young & Wanamaker
and C. S. Cobbs aro conducting the
defense. It developed Tuesday that
the county would attempt to prove
that the Cleveland defectives were
no more instrumental in catching
Cotell than Detective Burlison.

Rapid Transit Company Connot Get
Necessary Material.
Delay in securing material has
greatly retarded progress in the work
of straightening the A. & C. F. R,. T.
company's line between Akron and
Cuyahoga Falls. Grading has been
completed in the big cut in the hill
north of the Fair grounds. Material
is expected daily, as it has already
been shipped.
Two car loads of rails for the line
through the cut arrived Tuesday
morning.
The delay in seouring brackets for
the poles has also been a great draw
back, but it is thought this material
will be seouried soon and the new
wires strung.
The Barberton line is now in ex
cellent condition, the recent exten
sive repairs having converted it into
an almost new line. President T. F.

EMPLOYES
The article to which the postal
employes refer appeared in the
Democrat Nov. 2 and was published
upon tho authority ofone of the
local government employes. It was
as follows:
"Local Republican politicians are
not at any pains to conceal the fact
that there is an unfriendly feeling
between Postmaster Ebright and
Congressman Dick. Postmaster
Ebright wanted sone of his old com
rades, ex-Marshal Wm. Mason, ap
pointed janitor at the postofflce
building, but Mason was turned
uown Dy jjick to maKo room for a
favorite of the local Republican Ma
chine. Several days ago Postmaster
Ebright posted a notice in the post
offlce that none of the employes of
the Akron postofflce should,pay any
attention to circulars sent out by any
campaign committee 'soliciting funds
for political work. This has; inten
silled the feeling between Dr. Ebright
and the Machine politicians. It is
needless to say the sympathy of the
people is with Pontmaster Ebright."

SURE TO ASK
The Kind oi
Coffee When
Made.
Postum is Well
"Three great coffee drinkers were
my old school friend and her two
daughters.
"They are always complaining and
taking medicine. I determined to
give them Postum Food Cotfee in
stead of coffee when they visiteitme,
so without saying anything to them
about it, I made a big pot of Postum
the first morning, using four heaping
teaspoons to the pint of water and let
it boil twenty minutes,stirring down
occasionally.
"Before the meal was half over,
each one passed up tho cup to bo re
filled, remarking how fine the coifee
was. The mother asked for a third
cup and inquired as to the brand of
cotfee I used. I didn't answer her
question just then, for I had heord
her say a while before that she
didn't like Postum Food Coffee un
less it was more -than half old-fashioned
coffee.
"After breakfast I told her that the
cotfee she liked so well at breakfast
was pure Postum Food Coifee, and
the reason she liked it was because
it was properly made, that is, it was
boiled long enough to bring out the
flavor. I have been brought up from
a nervous, wretched invalid, to a fine
condition or physical health hy leav
ing off coifee and using Postum Food
Coffee.
"I am doing all I can to help the
world out of coffee slavery, to Postum
freedom, and have earned tho grati

NEW SYSTEM
For Sewer Tax Levy.
All Property Will be
Liable to Taxation.
Question to be Discussed
at Meeting.
Firemen Have Asked For
crease In Salaries.
In-
Policemen's Day May Be Lengthened
City Council.
At the meeting of City Council
Monday night, Mr. Paul said, in re
ferring to the present system of tax
ation for sewer purposes,, that at
least 25 per cent of the city property
is not contributing to the general
sewer tax fund.
He further suggested that a sewer
tax be levied on the general tax du
plicate, bo that assessments could
be made on all property liable to
taxation. Under the present system
some of the railroad, street railway,
telephone and other companies,"
said Mr. Paul, "are not liable to tax
ation for sewer purposes."
Mr. Fiebeger was of the opinion
that it would be practical to so ar
range the system that the entire city
would contribute to the sewer tax.
He also suggested a meeting of the
Sewer and Water Course committee
with the City Commissioners to talk
over matters relating to such
change.
Mr. Homan also urged a meeting
betweeu the two bodies, and told of a
vaiu effort he had made to get the
Commissioners to meet at his home
to discuss the 'matter. "I even of
fered to serve refreshments if they'd
corne,usaid he.
Consequent to these suggestions,
a meeting will be held in the City
Commissioners' room Thursday eve
ning. Continuing on the subject of the
sewer system, Mr. Amer said:
"There is a good deal of irregularity
in the system. Some persons are
assessed in one district and pay in
another."
Commissioner McGarry admitted
that.therejwas consideraple irregular
ity in the system, yet does not con
sider it a proper solution of the
problem to place a general sewer tax
on the entir city, at least at tno
present time.
Commissioner MoMillen is opposed
to making the sewer tax.general. He
said that those living in the suburbs
would be forced to assist in paying
for improvements that did not ma
terially benefit them, and conse
quently would bo unjust. As to be
ing in a district he stated that he
was so situated that he was not
obliged to pay a sewer tax in fact
had not done so for several years.
Replying to Mr. McMillen, Mr.
Brady said: "Well, if you have
been lucky enough to get yourself
comfortably situated you're not
likely going to withhold your assist
ance from procuring conviences for
others. I am not immediately bene
fited by sewers and, we want them
in our district, too yet I .have been
paying to secure them for other
people." Mr. Brady is disposed to
regard kindly the Idea of making the
sewer tar general.
The discussion of the sewer system
was occasioned by the reading of a
resolution to construct a main trunk
sewer in districts 1, G, 8 and 9. Upon
motion of Mr. Paul tho resolution
was laid over, pending the com
pletion of other sower improvements
ultimately until the committee
now at work to revise the sewer sys
tem presents its report.
The Firemen, too.
Members of Akron's fire depart
ments', cotemporaneous with the de
mands of the police officers, want an
increase in salary $180 a year to
each member. The petition asking
the increase was signed by Captains
J. B. Denious, Department No. 1;
Chas. M. Smith, No. 2; Frank Bico,
No. 3; John T. Mertz, No. , and
Chief B. F. Manderbach.
Mr. Paul presented a motion, wliioh
was carried, to act upon this peti
tion in conjunction with that of the
police forco. Botli petitions will
'likely bo disposed of atnoxt Monday
night's Council meeting.
What the Policemen Get.
Mr. Carleton of the Police commit
tee, reported the following terms de
cided upon by tho committed and
tho Commissioners: Policemen to
work 13 hourf a av, Instead of the
S. E. Phinney & Co.

present schedule of 10; to do all or
dinary special work besides. All
old officers to get $75 a month. New
men, for the first year, $G0: second
year, $70; third year, $75.
Mr. Carlton further stated that
this could not exactly be considered
as a raise, from the fact that the
time of the day's work was increased
one-fifth.
Two Bridges.
Mr. Brown of the Bailroads and
Bridges committee, reported in favor
of constructing a bridge across the
Ohio canal at Falor st. Upon mo
tion of Mr. Brady the report was ac
cepted. Mr. Fiebeger of the General Im
provement committee, referring to
the advisability of putting a bridge
across the canal at Campbell st., said
that he believed the convenience to
be necessary, but that under the
present condition of the city finances
it would not bo proper to proceed
with it at the present time. Mr.
Brady 6aid that he and Mr. Fiebeger
had looked over the proposed site
for the bridge and recommended that
the location be removed to the west
ern part of Campbell st. The report
was accepted.
Narrowing Water Street.
Mr. Paul moved that the petition
to narrow Water st. be acted upon
favorably, and that the City Solicitor
be instructed to proceed in providing
the necessary arrangements to se
cure the improvement. Seconded by
Mr. Hpman and carried.
Special Grade on Mill Street.
An ordinance to establish a special
grade on Mill st. from Main to How
ard sts. was referred to the Street
committee.
Mr. Homan asked the City Solici
tor if council had any right to grant
a request to change the grade. Mr.
Esgate replied, "Yes."
Continuing, Mr. Homan intimated
that the City Commissioners had
been in the habit of granting re
quests that council should, at least,
be brought before council.
Street Car Service.
Bomarks were made by Messrs.
Fiebeger, Thompson, Paul, Brown
and Carlton relative to complaints
heard about the street car service.
Beference was made to open cars

INCREASE
In Consumption of Coal
Is Marked.
Twenty Thousand Tons Are Consumed
- In Akron Every Month.
James P. Loomis, secretary and
manager of the Akron Coal com
pany, said to a Democbat reporter
Tuesday that the company would
have the new field, nearDoylestown,
in operation within 30 days.
The Erie Railroad company ex
pects to finish the side track from
the Doylestown station to the field
this evening" and work of laying
track will begin promptly.
The coal shaft is now sunk to a
depth exceeding 200 feet. Every in
dication is that coal will be obtained
at a depth of 800 feet. The develop
ing of this new field means much to
tho local coal trade. Withthe in
crease in Akron's population and the
new industries being located here,
there is a much greater consumption
of coal at present, than at any other
period within the history of this city.
"There are 20,000 tons of coal con
sumed in Akron each month," said
Mr. Loomis, "an increase of 333 per
cent over the amount demanded two
years ago. There is a shortage in
the local supply at present, due to
the scarcity of cars for shipping."
At the Grand.
The Wilbur Opera Co. played to a
largo house at the Grand Monday
night, every available seat being
taken. "Mascotte" was put on in a
superb manner. The stago settings,
living pictures and specialties were
high class and the audienco demon
strated its appreciation by frequent
applause.
Tho choruses, too, were excellent.
The opera was continuously sisling
with wit and humor. Sovernl jokes,
touching local people and affairs
assisted in making tho evening one
of cemploto pleasure. The company
will play every night "this week.
Every evening will see a nianjjo pf

LET LOOSE.
A Cantankerous Mule
Charged On Hunters.
They Beat a Hasty Retreat. Retiring
In Bad Order.
Officer Joseph Kempel tells a good
story on saloonkeeper Albert Berro
din, 805 South Main st.
Mr. Berrodin and a friend started
out for a hunt Friday. Taey trav
ersed the wilds of the big swamp
near Turkeyfoot lake and expelled
the life from a generous qaantity of
game. Starting homeward, a large
and aggravatingly cantankerous
mule was espied. Nothing was
thought of the mule at first sight,
but when Balaam began beating an
ambidextrous tattoo on space with
his hind feet and started after the
I Akron hunters they retreated in bad
older, with the mule following after
like a wild, resistless prairie fire.
It gained on the hunters, and JMr.
Berrodin fired a charge from his
shot gun in the air, hoping to fright
en the mule. This only increased its
pace, and Mr. Berrodin, upon whose
person the mule was in closest prox
imity, dropped the valuable gun and
jumped a six-rail fence in time to
escape.
By this time, one of the dogs ar
rived on the scene. It took in the
situation at once, and also a crack on
the jaw from the mule's hind feet.
Before it had time to yelp out
"Foul," the excited mule grasped
the canine by the neck with his
teeth and darned it about the swamp
for some time.
When the dog was finally released,
at a time when the mule tried to
