the suit of Katie B. Chllds vs. Earl
Chllds. It Is .an action for divorce.
The parties were married June 13,
1006 and have two children, Robert
Zella, aged 5 years and Hazel Elizabeth
aged 2 years. The plaintiff alleges
the defentlent has been guilty of
gross neglect of duty in that he has
failed to provide her and her children
with common necessities of life. She
also alleges that he has been keeping
company with dissolute women and
receiving vulgar postal cards from
them. She, therefore asks for di
vorce, reasonable alimony and the
custody of the two children.
DR. COLLEY LEAVES
Hillsboro, Going- to Westwood
New Preacher From Pennsyl
vaniaAppointments. The Cincinnati Conference of the
M. E. church, which held its annual
meeting at Troy, closed Monday
evening. The appointments were an
nounced Monday evening.
Dr. J. R. Oolley, who has been pas
tor of the nillsboro M. E. church for
the past four years, will not return,
having been transferred to Westwood.
This Is one of the best appointments
in the Conference and will mean a
material increase to Dr. Colley as It
pays $2400 a year. Dr. R. O. Matthews,
of St. Paul's church, will temporarily
take Dr. Colley 's place. He will preach
here only three or four weeks, how
ever, as he has been transferred to the
New York Conference and appointed
to the First Church at Elmira, N. Y.
The regular pastor for Hillsboro will
come from a Pennsylvania conference.
Dr. Colley, who returned Tuesday from
conference stated that Bishop Ander
son personally guaranteed that the new
pastor was an ideal man for Hillsboro,
one who would fit in here perfectly.
The bishop said that he was not only
an able preacher but an excellent
pastor. Dr. Colley did not know tiie
name of the new pastor.
Dr. Colley stated that while his new
appointment was an excellent one, he
hated to leave Hillsboro and had urged
the bishop to allow him to remain
here. While the people of Hillsboro,
not only of his church but generally,
will regret to see him leave, as he lias
proved himself not only an able preach
er but a good citizen in every way,
they will rejoice that he has secured
such a fine charge and a deserved

Burglar .Robs Walter G. Smith of
$275 Saturday Night
Clue to Thief.
A burglar made a rich haul at the
Smith home on E. Main street SatUr-
day night, securing about $150 in cash
ana siuo in checks. The money was
taken from the pocket of Walter G
Mr. Smith had trone home about 10
o'clock Saturday night. He had, as
was his custom, taken home with him
the money and checks which had been
received at the drug store that day
and not banked. He had placed them
In his left trouser pocket.
Mr. Smith went to bed shortly after
he got home and did not awaken until
morning. He had hung his trousers
over a chair near the bed. When he
was dressing Sunday morning he
fonnd that the money aud checks
were gone. He at once started a
search out no trace of them or of how
the burglar had gained entrance to
the house could be found.
None of the other members of the
family were disturbed by the burglar
although Mr. Smith's mother and his
brother, Kirby, were in rooms just
across the hall.
I had often heard about the "Stroup
Reunion" so last Thursday I conclud
ed to take a day off and attend one of
them. It looked somuch like it would
rain that I hesitated to go, but having
been told that it never rained on Stroup
Reunion day, I concluded to chance
it. The traction car on which I went
was packed full. It stopped at the
road leading to the place and we all
got off and walked over. I was aston
ished to see the crowd, "the woods
was full of em." It looked like
Chautauqua, the day Mr. Bryan was
here. All sorts of people, old folks
sitting around, middle aged ones walk
ing about, young men and maidens all
dressed in their Sunday clothes, little
children running around eating ice
creams and candy, and babies, oodles
of them. There don't seem to be any
race suicide in this neck of the woods
Some of the babies gurgled nnd some
of them cried, babies can't talk, so
they cried. That didn't disturb any
body, Just seemed to add to the general
hilarity. Cal Stroup was master of
ceremonies. Everyone knows Cal
Stroup and likes him, that Is why they
call him Cal. I reckon it would hurt
his feelings if any one would call him
Mr. Stroup. The first speaker intro
duced was Mr. Cox, democratic candi
date for governor. He talked princi
pally about the Constitutional amend
ments, taking them up one at a time.
He made a very good speech. Then
George Garrett was Introduced. He
said he didn't want to talk, only did it
because Cal Stroup insisted upon him
doing so. He made a snappy short
talk, just jollied up the crowd, al
though they didn't need jollying. I
was about 15 feet from the speakers
and it was all I could do to hear them
on account of the talking going on all
around. No one talked loud, but the
general effect was a steady roar that
no speaker could talk against. It was
a reunion you see and they all re-uned,
they did that. There were no formal
introductions nor any formalities of
any kind. Every one shook hands with
every ona else and talked and laughed.
It was good to see every one having
such a happy time. Readers, If you
have a grouch or the blues, think
every thing is out of joint and people
are getting worse, just go to one of
these re unions and mix in. You will
find that there is a lot of good cheer
and good fellowship in this' old world
after all. Epsilon.
The Golden Reunion of the 7th Ohio
Volunteer Cavalry vill be held at

' It is hoped to have a rear sure
enough hugler present who can blow
all calls, even the old "Quinine" call
The committee in charge" promise a
big time and say there will be some
thing interesting doing day and night.

day and Monday with relatives here.
At Election on Constitution
al Amendments Which
Was Held Tuesday
SMALL VOTE WAS POLLED
Woman's Suffrage Beaten and
Initiative and Referendum
Carries Unofficient Vote
Poled in this County.
Returns throughout the state are
so incomplete on the different amend
ments to the Constitution submitted
at the election Tuesday that it is im
possible to give anything but an esti
mate on the result in the state.
There seems to be no doubt but that
Woman's Suffrage has been defeated
by a large majority and that the Inla-
tive ana Keierendum has carried. It
looks like the $50,000,000 Bond Issue
for Good Roads was defeated, but this
is in doubt. The proposal for Primary
Election has carried as has also the
Reform in Civil Jury System. The
result on license or no license can not
be even speculated upon as the re
turns from the country districts are
so late In coming In.
About 50 per cent, of the vote was
out In the county, something like
4,000 votes being cast.
The result in Highland county on
all the' different proposals, all but 4
voting precincts havincr been heard
from was as follows :
