Residents of, tho north part of
tho city arc just now agitating
the matter of lowering the tracks)
of the Big Four and Erie railroads,
through the business, or central
part of the city and doing away
with tho dangerous. crossings at
Oak, Prospect, Main, State and
jGieenwood streets. Tho residents
of the west part of tho city aro
considering a viaduct for Kenton
Avonuo to obliterate tho danger
at that crossing of tho samo
roads. Both propositions will ho
ptescnted to the city council with
in a short timo and with it will
rest the decision.
There :! io question leg.ndiug
tho necessity or propriety of both
improvements. The crossing at
Kenton Avenue is a very danger
ous ouc because of the number of
railway, tracks and tho obstruc
ton of tho view by buildings and
striugs of cars., , Tho up-town
crossngs aro scaicely less danger
ous becauso of the heavy grade and
the buildings on all ides of the
tracks. Tho public is entitled to
better protection at all of these
crossing, and the eiy best protee
tion which could bo secured is the
oeihead street crossing. Tho
lailway crossings in tho up-town
section have been a gieat factor
m retarding the growth o tho
city to tho north, tho direction in
which tho city really should glow,
because of the lay of the laud.
the Kenton Avciiuo crossing bus
retarded tho growth of tho city
toward tho north west to tho samo
or an even greater extent and tho
indications arc that witlrln a few
yeais Marion will need both locali
ties' to luko care of tho growth
which sho is enjoying. Mai ion is
destined to bo a great city and
tho sooner such material improve
ments aio made tho hotter for tho
city ii nd all of tho peoplo.
These proposed improvements do
not affect only thoso persons Uv.
ing norm aim west, but overy
peiwou ciu 'Miinoii should bo in
terested in securing better protee
tion at 'the railway crossings.

JUST THE SAME
Federal Judge Holds That
Divorced Woman Have the
Same Rights as Widows
Toledo, O., M'arcli 12. -A di
vorced woman, whoso husband is
living is to be classed a widow.
The appellation s "grass widow"
won't do. Such as. the interpreta
tion given a decision rcndeml by
Judge' R. W. Taylor, hi tho
United States District Couit, in
tho interesting case 'of Ella E.
Mrs. Giles, on Juno 23 last, was
adjudged a bankrupt by tho Fed
eral Court. Harry LcvUou was
appointed trustee." Petitioner asked
that she bo allowed as exempt, un
der tho Ohl wtatutes, her house
hold goods and a lot wmth about
$400, bituatcd Tin North Toledo.
Fordyco Bclford, United States
Bankruptcy J?cfcree2allowed the
hirst named exemption, hut uphold
the trustee in his 'finding that tho
bankrupt waj not "eut.itlcd to
piopoity under the state laws.
As a reason Mr. .Bclford certi
fied to Judgo Taylor'' that "fcho
was denied tho right to tho real
estate because she is not a widow,
and because sho is uot an unmar
lied female, having :'n gocd faith
tho care, maintenance and custody
of any minor child or children of
a deceased relative, as' required by
Judge Taylei' holds that Mrs.
Giles is entitled to tho exemptions
asked for. 'It 'theieforo follows
that "grass widows" so-called,
can henctit under the Ohio ototutos
which lesclvcd into an interesting
question for tho Federal Court.
