The Xenla Herald published an arti
cle last week, stating that Congress
man S. D. Fess, of Yellow Springs,. Is
candidate for the Republican nomina
tion for president In 1910. The follow
ing extract Is from the article : I
Dr. Simeon D. Fess, president of the
Mann Institution, Republican Con
gressman from the Sixth district and
next to Mann, of Illinois, tne noori
leader of the House Republicans, has I
fired his ambition with desire to go to '
the White House.
Boiled down, condensed, succinctly
stated Dr. Fess Is candidate for the
Republican nomination for President
in 191G. This candidacy, too has passed ,
the embryo stage. I
It has begun to seethe and roar and
has already gained the size and vigor
of a spring freshet rolling down the

Deaf-Blind-Mute Enters College.
Leslie F. Oren, the deaf-bllnd-mute
boy who is so well known, not only here
at his home, but everywhere, has ef
fected plans whereby he will be able
to enter Ohio State University for a
course of study. Superintendent J ones,
of the State School for the Deaf, has
secured the services of a young man,
who has completed the course at the
University, who will give young Mr.
Oren all his time, acting as interpreter
Leslie will be the first student of the
kind ever In the University, or for that
matter, perhaps, the first blind-deaf-mute
student in any regular college
anywhere. As local people know, he
was given full courses In special schools
for the training of students deficient
in sight and hearing, and last year
spent several months in Wilmington
College, where a cousin, Oren Dickin
son, served him as interpreter. He ls
of course, an unusually bright young
man, and has done wonders In over
coming the natural barriers to an edu
cation. His career In the big State
School will be watched with great

Sunday evening at the Methodist
Church, Dr. Slutz will begin an unu
sual series of sermons on the following
subjects. There will be six sermons In
the series as follows :
1. The Solo.
2. The Duet.
3. The Trio.
4. The Chorus.
Some of the sub-heads for the ad
dress this coming Sunday evening are
as follows. "The Banner of Love",
"Thou Shalt Not Flirt", "The Profit
and Loss of Matrimony," "Taxing
Bachelors", "Eugenic Marriages."
Nearly half a hundred letters have
been sent out to local bachelors and
bachelor girls asking them the follow
1st. In your estimation why are
there so many who never marry, and
why do so many marry rather late in
2nd. Do you believe that it would
be just for the government to levy a
special tax upon the unmarried f
3rd. Do you believe that laws
should be passed in all the states en
forcing eugenic marriages ?
Most of these letters will be ad
dressed to bachelors and bachelor
girls and some of the replies will be
read during the address.
There are a good many in and about
Hillsboro who have been singing a
matrimonial solo for some time, and
it is safe to say that there will be a
large crowd on hand to hear them
"get theirs." There is a rumor to the
effect that Dr. Slutz will perform all
marriage ceremonies at half price
