TWO CASES REVERSED
By Circuit Court-New Cases
Filed-Drennan Case Settled-Other
The Circuit Court handed down de
cisions in the cases It had heard during
Its sessions here on Thursday after
noon. Four cases were heard and the
Common Pleas court was reversed In
two of them and sustained in two.
In the case of C. S and A. M. Powell,
plaintiffs In error, vs. The State of
Ohio, defendant In error, the verdict
of the lower court was sustained as to
A. M. Powell and reversed as to C. S.
Powell. The Powells were tried before
Judge Newby and a Jury In the Com
mon Pleas Court, charged with assault
with Intent to kill on George G. Willis,
marshal of Greenfield. A. M. Powell
was found guilty of assault and battery
and sentenced to 50 days In the worl;
house and fined $100 and cost. C. S.
Powell was found guilty of assault
with Intent to kill and sentenced to
four years In the penitentiary.
Tho Circuit Court held that the
charge of Judge Newby to the Jury
was erroneous and prejudicial to the
rights of defendant C. S. Powell.
Judge Newby charged the Jury that If
they found that an Intentional assault
had been made and made with a deadly
weapon ; that the Jury could find from
the making of the assault and the use
of the deadly weapon the Intent to
kill. This the Circuit Court held was
erroneous and remanded the case to
the Common Pleas Coifrt for a new
trial. The demurrer to the petition In the
case of Henry A. Pavey vs. Fred T.
Pavey et al was overruled.
The decision of the Common Pleas
Court refusing an Injunction in the
case of Drustlla Patton vs. Mary L.
Dickey et al was sustained. The case
was dismissed at the costs of the
plaintiff. This case was for the posses
sion of the Harper Hotel in Greenlle d,
Mrs, Patton claiming that her lease
did not expire until March 1, 11)13, the
defendants the owners of the property
claiming it expired March 1, 11)12. The
decision means that Mrs. Patton must
give up possession of the premises.
The decision of the Common Pleas
Court was reversal in the case of
Joseph Hibbset al vs. The Ohio Bap.
tlst Convention. This case was for
the construction of an Item of the will
of the late Temple G. Hoggard In
which about $1,000 was loft to the
needy white Baptist churches of Ohio.
Joseph Hlbbs, Ernest Schumacher
and Earl Gruver were named as trus
tees of Uie fund. Tho question was
whether they should manage and dis
tribute the fund or whether it should
be turned or, or to the Ohio Baptist
Convention to manage and control.
Judge Newby held that the trustees
should turn the money over to the
Baptist Gcnventto n for distaibut i o n.
Circuit Court placed a dllerent inter
pretation on the language and held
that the trustees wore to hold and
manage and distribute the fund.

Burn the Chinch Bug-.
The wet and cold weather of the
past fall and winter has greatly favor
ed the abatement of the chinch bug
plague In Ohio, and If farmers gener
ally will now proceed to destroy the
remnant of bugs which have survived
the winter, wo can reasonably hope to
get through the coming summer with
less damage than occurred last year.
Owing to the lateness of the spring,
the bugs will hardly commence to fly
freely before tho last ten days of April,
and If farmers generally will practice
concerted burning over the hibernat
ing retreats of the Insects during the
coming two weeks, many of the sur
viving insects will bo destroyed.
Burn over road side borders, along old
fence rows, over bramble thickets,
along the borders of woods and over
grassy borders around fields and gar
densIn short burn everything In tho
shape of dead ground-cover that will
burn. Persuade all your neighbors to
do likewise or your own work, no
matter how thoroughly performed,
will afford only partial relief and that
only for the early part of tho season.
If you have not read Circular 115 of
the Experiment Station on the Chinch
Bug, send for It at once.
