George M. Tuttle, trustee of Milton
Sutliff, deceased, late of Trumbull
county, has commenced a suit
asrainst Acnes Cassidy et al. for
$1,500, with interest, alleged to be
due on a promissory note. The pe
tition claims that a judgment has
formerly been awarded the plaintiff,
but has never been paid. It is also
claimed that property in East Akron
and land in Boston township was at
tached by the Sheriff, and that it
has since been conveyed to a daugh
ter, Grace Carron. It is also alleged
that Andrew Cassidy afterwards as
signed to Squire Geo. W. Forbes.
The prayer of the petition asks the
court to set aside these transfers on
the ground of fraud and have the

Tells Why the County Commissioners Should Grant
the Annexation Petition Would Help Make
Akron a Greater City.
The County Commissioners have
not yet taken action upon the annex
One. of the members of the Board
informs the Democrat that it has
been practically decided to annex
nearly the -whole of the South Akron
territory described in the petition,
but only part of the North Hill and
West Hill territory.
Mr. N. B. .Steiner, president of
Akron's Chamber of Commerce, and
one of the city's leading advocates
of annexation, said today:
"In the first place, the territory
proposed to be added to the city is
a part of the city. Being a part of
Akron in fact, the territory should
also be a part'of Akron in name.
"There is now practically no or
ganized government in the outlying
territory. The people can not go
forward with public improvements,
because they have no local govern
ment through which to proceed. At
thn hearing conducted by the Com
missioners nearly all of the opposi
tion came from the large land
holders. There are a large number
of mechanics who own homes in the
territory who could not attend the
meeting, but who strongly favor an
nexation. Speaking for the South
Side, those who favor annexation are
in the majority 3 to 1.
"Another good reason in favor of
annexation is that a large city can
sell its bonds at a much better ad
vantage than a smaller one. Loans
are made only upon city property
and it matters not how close you are
to the corporation line, if your prop
erty is outside, large loan companies
turn their backs upon you.
l i Resides, the surrounding territory
can not now be built up except as
the people, godhead blindly and.un
syBtemUoglly. The' streets are un
dulating arid every man builds to
suit himself. Finally when the ter
ritoryMs joined to Akron, street
grades will be established and the
damages awarded property owners
will far offset the increased taxes,
fear of which seems to be such a bug
"Another reason: (With the corpo
rate limits extended, houses will
rent more readily. People want to
live where they have lights, sewer
connections and sidewalks. They
also want their children educated in
line with the regular High School
"But what I consider most essen
tial of all," continued Mr. Steiner,
"is that Akron show some signs of
progress when the Decennial census
is taken next year. If it can be
shown that our city has grown
largely in population, which it has
Leases Covering That

the following leases have been re

Sarah J. Burtch, Coventry, 82 acres;
Henry "Saurs, Coventry, 138 acres;

L. 0. T. M.
Will Entertain Their Highest Officers
of the Lodge at Akron.
Mrs. Lillian M. Hollister of De
troit, Supreme Commander of the
order of the L. O. T. M. of the world,
will be in Akron on next Tuesday.
She will be accompanied by Miss B.
M. West of Poet Huron, Mich., Su
preme Record Keeper.
Mrs. Hollister will be tendered a
reception in McPherson hall in the
evening by all the local lodges. A
business meeting will be held at the
Buchtel hotel at 2 o'clock Tuesday
if we include the growth beyond the
present corporate limits, many new
residents and new industries will be
attracted to Akron. Cities are con
stantly bidding against each other
for possession of all the factors that
go to make a great municipality, and
if Akron expects to fare well in this
regard she must neglect nothing that
will enable her to compete with
rival cities of her class. To this end
the Commissioners should look with
favor upon the annexation petition.
They should act wholly with regard
to the public good; not as personal
or political influences or considera
tions may dictate."
Mr. Steiner was asked what would
be done if the Commissioners reject
the annexation petition. He replied :
" I believe the South Side would in
corporate, but the Commissioners
could block that too."
"It has been my experience that
local Democratic officials have al
ways favored annexation more than
the Republicans," said Mr. Steiner
in conclusion. "For some reason the
Bepublican officials seem to fear
that there may be politics mixed up
with the annexation project, so they
hesitate to act. Consequently the
city and the citizens have to suffer
for it. Several years ago we attempt
ed to have South Akron annexed.
There where 17 or 18 factories in
South Akron whose owners lived in
the city. These owners would influ
ence their respective members of the
Council against annexation, and the
rest of us, although residents and
property owners of South Akron,
were powerless. This time the Coun
cil was with us, but the County Com
missioners are taking their own time
to decide the matter. However,
from all walcanjearn Jbeyarein-r
dined'to favor the annexation pro
ject." Why They Oppose It.
Attorney Edwin F. Voris, counsel
for the citizens living in the southern
suburbs of the city who are opposed
to annexation, said Friday afternoon
to a reporter for the Democrat:
"The parties whom I represent
own farm property; arid it will be
farm property for many years. Tak
ing this property into the city will
confer no benefit on the owners, but
will impose upon them a serious bur
den in the shape of largely increased
"There is no school building in
Akron convenient of access from
this property. It is too far from any
engine house to have annexation af
ford fire protection, either.
"Briefly expressed, the above are
most important reasons why owners
of this property oppose annexation."

Our annual Memorial service will
be held at the Grand Opera House,
Sunday, Dec. 3d, at 2:30 p. m. sharp.

Caused By Coffee.
"Careful inquiry in the school
room developed the fact that those
children who are habitually given
coffee to drink have sallow complex
ion, are nervous, more or less irrita
ble and very sluggish intellect or an
over-wrought and abnormal imag
ination, results of extreme nervous
ness. My own experience with cof
fee drinking kept me afflicted for
some years with severe and con
stant headaches, with extreme ner
vousness at times.
"I was compelled to abandon cor
fee altogether and was quickly re
lieved of. the headaches and other
troubles. I was fortunate enoueh to
secure a package of Postum Food
Coffee, but my first attempt at mak
ing it was a failure. After another
trial and following directions (which
are very easy, by the way) I secured
a delicious drink, far superior in my
mind to coffee. I have continued to
use it from the start and my im
provement has been steady with no
ill effects at all."
The above was written by a school
teacher, Miss E. Barnard of Oxford,
It is an easy matter to leavo off the
coffee habit, if Postum Cereal Food
Coffee is used in its place, particu
larly when attention is given to its
proper preparation. The whole se
cret of the preparation is in allowing
the,Food Coffee to boil long enough
to bring out the taste and food value.
