The United States Marino
Corps was first called into exis
tence by an Act of the Continental
Congress of November 10, 1775,
and gallantly served throughout
the Revolutionary War. It was
disbanded at the close of the war,
April 11, 1782, but was re-organized
and permanently established
July 11, 1798. From that day to
this its officers and men have been
zealous participants in every ex
pedition in which the Navy has
engaged, and in many trying cam
paigns they have won distinction
with their brethren of the Army.
It is the gallant little corps that
has so ably assisted in fighting
America's battles in every corner
of the globe for more than a cen
tury; its members are the first
men on the grojund in case of
trouble with a foreign power, and
the first men into battle in case of
hostilities. They have at all times
served their country faithfully,
both in peace and war, and have
reflected great credit upon them
selves as a Corps and on the na
tion which they represent. Ever
have they lived up to the letter,
as well as the spirit, of the motto
of the Corps, "Semper Fidelis."
Marines serve on both laud and
sea, but are trained, clothed, and
equipped very much as are sol
diers of the land forces.
The military and naval services
of the United States are divided
into three separate and distinct
branches, the Army with its du
ties on land, the Navy .at sea, and
the Marine Corps which serves
both on land and sea. The Ma
rine Corps is a separate organiza
tion entirely, and is' under the di
rect supervision of the Secretary
of the Navy, and usually serves
with the Navy. In time of war
or other public necessity the
On Tuesday afternoon, Mr. John
Moser was badly injured by having
his right hand caught in the gear
ing of a corn shredder.
He was immediately brought to
the Rhcinfrank hospital where it
was found necessary to remove two
fingers. Efforts to save the other
fingers may be successful, but the
entire hand is so badly lacerated
that it is questionable.
Porrysburg defeated the Spencers
In a hard - fought and well - played
gamo Sunday afternoon to the score
of 14 to 3.
The Spencers played a fast game
and kept the locals on the jump.
Perrysburg played a kicking game
and kept the ball In the visitors ter
ritory all through the first half. The
Spencers were the first to score from
a fleld"goal by Rice.

WHY NOT SMILE?
Are you angry? Is your lip
cracked. Are you afraid of
wrinkles? Are you suffering
from an ingrowing grouch? None
of them? They why don't you
smile? History tells us of men
who trained themselves not to
smile, because they wanted a stern
expression of countenance. The
savages also prided themselves on
not showing any sort of emotion

"The ways of Providence and
the verdict of a Petit Jury are
past understanding" has often
been said, and in the verdict of
the jury in the recent trial of John
Henry Willey charged with mur
der in the second degree, the very
trite saying has been proven true.
Much surprise was manifested
when, after 22 hours deliberation,
the jury returned a verdict of
guilty of manslaughter.
Willey was charged with killing
Mrs. Ella Kimble at her home
near Bradncr on February 12 1915.
Attorney B. F. James for the
defendant, made a motion for a
On Friday morning,x Judge Mc
Clelland granted .the new trial.
Thirteen reasons were given to
the court as to why the defendant
should be granted a new trial and
after reviewing these Judge Mc
Clelland made his decision says
the Sentinel. He stated that the
defendant was either guilty of
homicide or not guilty of anything
and should have been acquitted
instead of receiving an assault and
battery verdict. The court fur
ther ruled that the verdict was
not in harmony with the evidence
introduced in the case and the
jury's verdict was set aside. Mr.
Willey was again released on
$5000 bond for his appearance at
the next term of court.
The maximum penalty for as
sault and battery is S200 fine and
six months in the work house or
jail and the costs of the case.
One hundred and seventy-one wit
nesses were subpoenaed by both
sides in the trial and the costs will
probably run from S2000 to S3000.
Judge McClelland will probably
hear the new trial but chances are
that the case will not be held un
til the next term of'court.

war heroes of Europe are not smil

heroes themselves are smiling. A

indicate a good heart nor a clear
conscience. A thief seldom smiles.
The woman of the streets smiles
with her lips, but her eyes are hard

On Monday evening at about
5:30 o'clock, while M. T. Graves
was driving on West Front street,
near Mulberry, his light one-horse
wagon was badly busted and his
load of two barrels of cider "went
rolling on the ground." It was all
because "Bill" Williams drove his
automobile into the rear of the
Graves vehicle, because his head
lights were not burning and Bill
couldn't sec the Grave before him.
Louis Marti, who was a passenger
m the auto, was thrown- out on
the street and mixed up with the
cider, but "Bill" scooped him up
and took him home. Nobody was
hurt, but the wagon wa.s turned

Scott Field 18 to 0. The defeat
was mainly do to lack of practice,
owing to the bad weather and to
the injury to Pangratz, which
made him practically useless in
offensive work altho he was able
to play. He is the Hi's star,
plunging full back and his brilliant
line-bucking has been a strong fac
tor in the local teams work this
season. The high-school's home

How to Prevent Croup.
It may be a surprise to you to learn
that in many cases croup can be pre
vented. Mrs. H. M. Johns, Elitla,
Ohio, relates her experience as fol
lows: "My iittlo boy is subject to
croup. During the-past winter I kept
a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in the house, and when ho be
gan having that croupy cough I would
give him one or two doses of it and it
would break tho attack. I like it bet
ter for children than any other cough
medicine because children tako it will
ingly, and it is safe- ana reliable."
