They walked right up and they
turned around and walked right back
again. If you were at the Fair Ground
Sunday afternoon you will need no
explanation of this statement. Deak
yne had the goats of all the members
of the Cincinnati Reserves and he kept
them tied all afternoon. He had thir
teen strike outs to his credit, everyone
of the visitors fanning at least once.
He only allowed three hits and but for
two errors behind him in the first In
ning would have easily had a shut out.
He also led his team at the bat with
three clean singles and fielded his posi
tion cleanly. It was Deakyne Day.
Things looked bad for Hillsboro In
the first when Eppsteln first up came
through with a 'single and errors by
Reece and McCall let in two runs.
The visitors, however, were then
through for the day and dutifully ate
out of Deak's left hand.
Hillsboro tied the score In the second.
Fisher led off with a two bagger.
Rogers sacrificed him along to third
and he scored on Hecker's single. A
sacrifice by Reece advanced Hecker
and he scored on Dcakyne's single.
Four hits in the fifth counted three
more for Hillsboro and this being
enough and to spare the way Deakyne
was going, the boys did not bother to
make any more.
Giotlesch started to pitch for the
visitors but retired after the bonbard
ment in the fifth. Stlgler who replaced
him did not allow a hit or a run.
Klump, shortstop ot Reserves, and
Manager Stanforth had an argument
over one of the balls. Klump took one
of the balls which was in play and put
itin his pocket. When Umpire Richter
asked for the third ball Manager Stan
forth said that Klump had it. Klump
claimed the ball belonged to the Re
serves, but this was admitted incorrect
by"the manager of the Reserves.
The game next Sunday will be with
Winchester. All who saw the great
13 inning game with this team a few
weeks ago, which was won by Win
Chester 3 to 2 will look forward with
great pleasure to the second struggle
between these teams.

Court of Appeals.
Five new cases were filed in the
Common Pleas Court during the past
Charles H. Dudley asks for a dlvoroe
from Anna H. Dudley on the grounds
of gross neglect of duty. The parties
were married July 9, 1899, in Clinton
county and have three children, James
Logan, aged 12 years, Wllmer Mat
thew, aged 10 years and Charles
Henry, aged 8 years. The plaintiff
says that the defendant for the past
two years has kept up a clandestine
correspondence with other men ; that
on August 15, 1914, she left him and
their children and he has been In
formed and believes that she has been
consorting with other men and that
she practically confessed Illicit rela
tions with one man whose name he is
willing to give to the court. He fur
ther says that since his wife deserted
him he has been compelled to place
the children In the Children's Home.
He asks for a divorce and the care and
custody of the children.
Lorenzo S. Rhoades and Mary S.
West, as executrix of the will of Geo.
K. Rhoades, deceased, against Ardelia
Holladay, as executrix of Henry
Rhoades, deceased, Is an action for
$125. The plaintiffs say that under
the will of Henry Rhoades a legacy of
$200 was left to Philip Rhoades ; that
said Philip Rhoades assigned $125 of
this legacy to George K. Rhoades, de
ceased, but that the executrix, al
though she has the money in her
hands refuses to pay it to the
plaintiffs. Mrs. Holladay interpleads
in the case admitting that she has the
money, but that in addition to the
plaintiffs, Katherine T. Rhoades and
Victoria Brock Patton, claim to be en
titled to this money. She says that
she has the money and asks the In
structions of the Court to whom to
Vance Durbin asks for a divorce
from Ida Durbin. The parties were
married in Clinton county, Aug. 14,
1914, and have no children. The plain
tiff says that the defendant has been
guilty of gross neglect of duty In that

that she has been guilty of adultery
with Arlle Thompson.
Peter Yochum against Henry Yoch

The State of Ohio on the relation of
W. P. Cordrey against the Board of
Education of Marshall Township
School District and Frank M. Main is
a suit for mandamus. Cordrey lives
In Marshall township and has three
minor children. He says that the
school In the sub-district lr which he
resides has been abandoned and that
his residence Is' more than two miles
from the nearest school; that the
board of education has undertaken to
provide transportation for the pupils
In the sub-district abandoned ; that It
has failed to have the conveyance pass
on the free turnpike near his residence
and that the driver of the conveyance,
Frank M. Main, has refused to come
or pass a point convenient to his resi
dence. He therefore asks that the
board of education and the driver be
commanded to come to a point conve
nient to his residence. The matter
was presented to Judge Newby Mon
day on the pleadings and he issued an
alternative writ commanding the de
fendants to either pass the residence
of the plaintiff as requested or on next
Monday to show cause why they do
not do so.
COURT OF APPEALS.
The case of Abraham Well and
Isaac Well against the Connecticut
Fire Insurance Co. has been taken to
the Court of Appeals upon petition in
error. This case Is based on an Jnsur
ance policy of $2000 which the plain
tiffs held in the defendant's company
covering wool In a barn In New Market
belonging to Charles V. Purdy. The
wool was destroyed by lire on July 12,
1912. When the case was tried in the
Common Pleas Court Judge Newby
instructed the Jury to return a verdict
In favor of the de f endant on the ground
that the plaintiffs had not complied
with the terms of the policy.
Two of the ablest advocates of wo
man's suffrage on the American plat
form will deliver addresses on this
subject in Hillsboro today.
One of the meetings will be held in
the afternoon at the Washington
School bullulng at 3 o'clock. The main
address will be made by Grace Living
stone, a social worker of New York
City. This meeting Is for women only.
At night at 7 o'clock Mrs. Myron 13.
Vorce, of Cleveland, secretary of the
Ohio Woman Suffrage Associa ion, will
deliver an address on the Court House
lawn. Every one is cordially invited
to attend this meeting.
The following sketch of the life and
works of these famous women will give
an idea of what may be expected at
these meetings :
"Rose Livingstone calls herself a
social worker', but In New York she
Is known as the 'angel of Chinatown'
for her splendid work of the past seven '
years among the unfortunate victims
of commercialized vice. No use to
disclaim the existence of white slavery
in Rose Livingstone's presence. She
knows. She does not try to reach
hardened cases. Her work is among
the little glrlsT Time and again she(
has been able to tind a child who has
been abducted and restore her to her
friends before the awful blight await
ing her has fallen. 'The girl who dls
appears' is no myth, as Rose Living
stone will tell you. She has traced
many of these to the evil resorts of
New York and Brooklyn and some-
times, alone, sometimes with the help,
of police and city detectives she has
rescued them. Night after night she
labors for these little victims of a hor
rible social order. When she saves one
she is very happy. Two or three years
Rose Livingstone became convinced
that commercialized vice would never
be abolished until women have the
vote. Since then she has spoken for
woman suffrage wherever and when
ever she has a chance. As Ohio was
her childhood's home, she Is much
Interested In the sutirage campaign
here and Is giving six weeks of her
time to it."
"The corresponding secretary of the
Ohio Woman Suffrage Association,
Ethel Rldgley Vorce, is easily the most
popular speaker for suffrage In the
state. Equally at home in a small
parlor meeting or before a turbulent
street crowd, In a hall or a church,
Mrs. Vorce's services are always In
"Mrs. Vorce has had a varied expe
rience. Born in Detroit, educated In
Canada, having lived in Europe, and
having engaged In work of various
kinds, from newspaper reporting and
settlement work In New York, to sing
ing In a stock Opera Company, keeping
house for her father and brother from
early girlhood, her mother having died
when she was but two months old, the
problems and responsibilities of life
have presented themselves to her in
many ways. Always a suffragist as a
matter of simple justice, she early
recognized woman's need of the ballot
as a matter of self-protection and as a
means of service to the State.
"Mrs. Vorce, since her residence in
Cleveland, which dates from her mar
riage to Myron B. Vorce In 1902, has
been active In public affairs.
"Mrs. Vorce's most distinguished
qualities are her keen appreciation of
justice and her unfailing sense of

You have been criticised for publish
ing the statements and views of Dr.
Brown, who brings (is he has an un
doubted right to do) his facts and de
ductlons concerning the uiiparelleled

Doubtless the Cincinnati Enquirer has
been savagely criticised for publishing
the articles of Mr Herman Rldder who
presents such facts as suit him and
opinions which are as German In sym

mucti more doubtful authority.
President Wilson has reminded us
that we are a people of mixed strains
of blood and that whatever way the
struggle ends American hearts will
bleed In sympathetic anguish. Our
sympathies we can not help but our
opinions we can keep to ourselves, and,
probably, In the interest of truth and
fair judgement, we ought to do so until
we know who is responsible for this
horror of tiie ages. What are the re

day and tiie other Sunday. Both of
these cases were in a violent form.
Four other children contracted the
disease, but in a mild form, Two of
them are well and the other two are
considered out of danger. M rs. How
ard, matron of the Home, and Dr.
Russ, the attending phjslclan, both
state that they do not consider the

there is but slight danger of It spreading.
Prof. L S. Ivlns, an Inspector from
the olllceof state superintendent of
schools, was here Thursday and Friday
of last week.
In company with County Superln-
: tendent W. II. Vance he visited a.
( number of the school of the county
and expressed himself as delighted
with the way in which Prof. Vance
and tha district superintendents were
installing the new school laws.
Prof. Vance says that all of the
rural schools have been graded and
that all the teachers and district
superintendents are co-operating Ira
their work and that a spirit of mutual
help and assistance and great Interest
prevaoes all or the schools.
He will hold meetings of the teach
jers and district superintendents of
each district, when the needs of each
I school will be discussed. By this inter
1 change of ideas it is hoped that many
beneficial suggestions will be secured
whereby the elllclency and standing of
the schools may be raised.
I Later Prof. Vance Intends to ho d
1 public meetings in school houses a.
over the county. The purpose of these-
meetitl s will be to better Infnrm th
people of the purpose and intent of
the new school system and to show
what Is being done and what is hoped
to be accomplished in the schoois
At these meetings a Ilo'ind Table wl
be conducted when Prof. Vance wl t
answer questions In regard to the
schools thus informing the patrons of
the school of the reason for changes
made In the conduct of the schools anrt
also securing their ideas In regard tx,
how the schools should be conducted
These meetings he also hopes wl i
arouse a greater interest in the schno s
among the people generally.
Moving Picture Show Last Sunday.
The lirst moving picture show eer
held In Hillsboro on Sunday was the
one at the Forum last Sunday evening
Only one show was given and tl.9
attendance was small. Whether th;3
was due to Its not having been adver
tised or because the peopie are opposed
to Sunday shows is impossible to dete--mine.
Whether the Forum will be
open regularly on Sunday evenings wl
undoubtedly depend upon tiie patron
age it receives and the amount auct
force of ihe opposition encountered
