Mr. T. H. Groves Tells of
He Left His Train and Worked All
Night Rescuing Bodies.
An eye witness to the terrible rail
road wreck at Patterson, N. J., was
Mr. T. H. Groves of this city. Mr.
Groves returned to Akron Saturday.
To a Democbat reporter he said:
"It was one of the most horrible
sights I have ever witnessed. The
two trains were telescoped at the
Patterson station. My train was
standing on a nearby track. I saw
the collision and went to the assist
ance of the unfortunate people. "We
worked all night chopping out the
injured and sending them to the
hospitals, Six persons were killed
outright and more than a score were

Akron Grows Faster Each
Twice as Many Permits Issued This
Year as Last.
From March 20 to November 1, S33
building permits have been granted
by City Clerk Isbell. In the same
period last year, but 160 were grant
ed. Only 220 permits were granted
for the whole of last year. The num
ber this year will doubtless be more
than twice that.
During the month of November 25
building permits were granted.
In the past week "permits have
been granted as follows: C. M.
Brainard, frame dwelling on Yale
st.; Beading Manufacturing and
Building Company, frame dwelling
on Balch st. ;"Thomas B. Carmichael,
frame dwelling on Gage st. ; Laura

Hibbs Set a Trap He
Sam J. Hibbs of Dean st., who is
one of the most enthusiastic mem
bers, of the Akron Poultry and Pet
Stock club, has been missing some
fine chickens of late.
On Friday night two fine Pekin
pullets were killed. Each was to
have been exhibited at the bench
Bhow ; they were valuable birds. In
dications were that a .skunk was the
slaughterer, and Mr. Hibbs set a
trap for the odoriferous assassin.
The trap was set near the hen-house
and when visited Monday morning
it was not empty. "One of the big
gest skunks I ever saw was there,"
said Mr. Hibbs. "I'll bet it weighed
at least 15 pounds."
A shot gun was secured, and that
particular skunk will now kill no

Members of the Akron Poultry
and Pet Stock club held a well at
tended meeting at the club's rooms
Odd 'Fellows' temple, Saturday
evening. It was decided to change
the number of specimens for first
entries for prizes at the bench show
from six to four, and second from
four to three.
Dr. J. W. Lyder read an excellent
paper on "White Minorcas."
It is expected that the White
Minorca club, which has members
throughput this union, will have a
large number of specimens at the
bench show. It is estimated that
all together, 1,500 birds will be ex
hibited by poultry breeders and
fanciers. The members of the club
tendered a vote of thanks to the
Daily Democbat for the attention
and space given the doings of the club
in its present enterprise in arranging
for the show.

Will be Devoted to the Ninetieth
The session and trustees of
the Presbyterian church North
Springfield have officially an
nounced that only the forenoon of
Dec. 9 will be devoted to the celebra
tion of the ninetieth, anniversary of
the organization of this, the second
oldest church in the Cleveland Pres

up to the annual business meeting of
the congregation. It seems, to a
good many, that this was a matter
for the congregation to decide, but
then there is nothing like having
some one to decide matters.
So despite the fact of circulars
issued and previous notice, .we send
this as official.
