0. W. H. Wright.
If the Democrats of tho Eleven
th district nominate Judge O. W.
H. Wright, of Logan, for congress
they will have an excellent chance
for carrying tho district next fall.
There are many goad 'Democrats
m the district, lut it is very
doubtful if any of them could poll
so largo a vote or t unite so many
elements oppose!! to bossism as
Judge Wright 'will be able to do.
The bossera dislike him for his
fearlesB3burso while on the bench,
and went into a boss-owned and
lywa-ridden legislature and had
him gerrymandered off the bench.
Tne people u tne UiBtrict came
near electing him as a rebuke to
the bosses. Giye them another
chance and they will do tho work.

The Aged Minister Struck
by a Car.
WOUND NOT SERIOUS
"Father" Hart is Beloved
The following article appears in
the Sc. Louis Globe Domoorat,
accompanied by a picture of Rev.
C. O. Hart, formorly of Logan:
"Rev. C. C. Hart, aged 87, of
Webster Groves, one of tho oldest
Presbyterian clergymen in the
United States, was saved from
certain death by Motorman,
Robert Gilroath of the Suburban
railway, whose car knocked the
aged minister down at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon at Gore and
Lockwood avenues. "Father"
Hart, as he has been all'ectionally
called in Webster Groves for the
last twenty years, suffered a severe
scalp wound. In view of hiB ad
vanced years, the nervous shock
will probably result seriously.
He was taken to the home of Dr.
Marshall Baker, who happened to
be out at the time. Dr. C. W.
Carter was summoned."
"Rev. Mr. Hart had spent a lit
tle time at the annual firemen's
picnic and barbecue, talking of old
days. He is almost deaf and can
hear only with an ear trumpet.
His vision is also considerably im
paired, due to old age."
"Ho left the picnic to go on an
errand before returning home."
"He attempted to cross tho
street. Motorman Gilreath no
ticed the aged man stumbling
across the tracks, apparently
oblivious to his danger. The mo
torman at once put on all the air,
ringing his gong with all his
might. He managed to slow the
car to a great degree."
"The motorman, seeing that a
collision was inevitable, leaned
over the motor through the vesti
bule and pushed the old limn aside
The minister was struck on the
head in falling. A bad scalp
wound wns indicted. Mr. Hart

Governor Harris has confirmed
the appointment, by Mayor Yaplo,
of Messrs. Valentine Blankenship,
Republican, and Henry Gartner,
Republican, to be members of tho
Hoard of Public Safety in this
city. These appointments were
made by Mayor Yaple several
months ago, but the City Council
declined to confirm them.
The municipal code requires
that these appointments must be
made by the Mayor, but must re
ceive a two-thirds vote of Council
to confirm them. If council fnils
to confirm the Mayor's appoint
ments they go to the governor,
after 30 days, who then fills the
vacancies that may exist.
Mayor Yaple's appointments not
being confirmed the matter went
to Governor Putticon. Owing to
his ill health the late governor
took no action in the matter,
either in regard to this city or any
of the others in which similar con
G vemor Harris ignored politi

The month of July, now past,
has been marked by a longcontln
iled period of heat, which, while
not coUBingthe mercury to register
any high mark, was still sufficient
to be felt nnd to effect physical
conditions, Accompanying this
heated term came frequent heavy
rains, making the month closely
approximate what is known as
"the rainy season" in tropical
As a result of these climatic
conditions there has been an un
usual and marked amount of cer
tain forms of illness, notably of
stomach and intestinal disorders,
dysentery, flux and kindred ills,
which have prevailed in a very un
usual degree. Much of this illness
originates from imprudent eating,
rendering the system peculiarly
liable to climatic effects.
With the other sicknesses there
has been and still is much of what
one physician denominates as
"summer grip. This Is marked
by intense cerebral headaches and
vomiting. One doctor recently
answered nine call in one evening
and found them all to bo this last
named illnesB. All physicians
unite in recommouding special care
in eating, bathing and with regard
to exertion during the heat of the

A corps of surveyors have been
camping nt the Fair Grounds for
several days, running a line
through from Newark, via Bremen
and Logan to Portsmouth, pro
spective to building a traction line
connecting up this territory of
Ohio. The engineers would not
talk much, but it could be gleaned
from their work that they have
much expectation of the proposi
tion being pushed to completion.
They were not only getting a pr-
liminary through line, but were
making notes on grade lines, esti
mating the probable cuts and fills.
They represent a company that is
not wanting for money to push the
line if thoy believe it is paying
territory. Let 'em come. We

of the Phonies.
During lait week there were two
fellows come to town that had a
slick scheme to oiler. They repre
sented themselves as traveling for
the Cleveland Credit Indemnity
Association. They waited upon
merchants and asked if they bad
any accounts to be collected. Any
accounts that were absolutely
"cold," they would take and fig
ure on them. One merchant made
them out three-hundred dollar
worth of very bad ones. The
agent took them to his room and
then reported several hours later
that he had investigated the ac
counts and that his house could
allow the merchant .'200. 38 cash
guaranteed at the end of six
months for the accounts regard
less of whether they made any
collections or not, but in order to
insure such proposition the mer
chant was required to pay $34. 2C
premium on the risk, jr.st like an
insurance indemnity. The mer
chant begon to suspicion and mis
trust the scheme, and looked in
rating journals for their standing,
The smoothe individual then re
torted that no insurance company
is rated. He then offered to take
half the premium $17.00 in cash
and the balance be deducted ,from
the $209.38 at the end of six
months. The determination on
the part of the merchant to tele
graph their "house" in Cleveland
for information made them squirm,
and they beat a retreat, not until
the merchant had told them what
"d n swindlers" they were.
They left town, but it is not krown
