THE DEMOCRATIC BANNER
Of A lit. Vernon Man Found
Dead In Mansfield
Edith Emerson, A Stenogra
pher, Dies Tuesday
And There Is A Mystery
About Her Death
Coroner Is Called To Make
. An Investigation
Hi- i I
Tody Found On The Bed
MIbb Edith Emorson, aged 25 years,
a stenographer In the ofllco of tho
Ohio Brass company, was found dead
in hor room at tho homo of Mr. and
Mrs. Curtis Hardgrovo, 265 West
Fourth street, at 1:45 o'clock Tuesday
Tho cause of death is not known
and Coroner Maglott Is making an In
vestigation. Miss Emerson came hero
from Monroeville ahout nino. months
ago and was for a tirao a stenographer
In tho ofllco of tho Ideal Electric com
pany, later going to the Brass works.
Sho mado arrangements to secure
board and room at tho Hardgrovo
'homo about a week ago and went
thero at 11:45 Tuesday to got dinner.
Sho ate hor dinner, but complained of
having a headache and went to her
Mrs. Hardgrovo asked her If it was
in tho naturo of a sick headache, but
sho replied that it seemed to bo a
nenjous headache. Mrs. Hardgrovo
heard nothing moro from tho young
lady, but whilo getting ready to go
down street In tho afternoon sho went
to tho girl's room and found her lying
faco downward on tho bed. A hur
ried investigation led Mrs. Hardgrovo
to the belief that tho young lady was
dead, but sho summoned Dr. Brown,
thinking that life might not be ex
tinct. When tho physician found that Miss
Emorson was dead Coroner Maglott
was summoned and an investigation
lis now In progress.
Miss Emorson had had no callers
slnco tolng to tho Hardgrovo homo,'
but remarked a day or so ago that sho
would havo to call up hor gentleman
, friend and tell him of Lor change In
address, 'as ho probably would not
know where to And her.
She stated that sho had been taking
stomach medicine given her by a local
physician, but nothing In the naturo
of medlcino had yet been found in
hor room and nothing was found to
indicate that she had taken anything
after reaching her room Tuesday
Tho circumstances in connection
with tho girl's death aio regarded as
peculiar and a very thorough investi
gation will bo mado by tho coroner,
who Is not ready to advanco any theo
ry at this tlmo as to tho probable
causo of her death.
Sho leaves an Invalid mothor at
Monroovillo and a brother who lives
at Mt. Vornon and Is a traveling sales
man. Tho girl was fully clothed when hor
body was found on tho bed, hor dress
bolng tho Bamo as that In which sho
returned from tho ofneo at noon.
Wo onco hoard of a man who could
llvo very comfortably on ?2 a week,
but ho was a FIJI Islandor.

Entertainment Given By The
Chicago Glee Club
The last number of the season of
the High School lecturo courso was
given In tho high school auditorium
Tuesday evening. The entortalnmont
waB furnished by tho celebrated Chi
cago Glee Club which hns a flno
reputation all over tho country. In
splto of tho threatening weather, the
room was almost filled before tho first
number was announced. This was a
very successful finish for tho lecture
courso which has been a thoroughly
good ono from tho start to tho finish,
ovory entortalnmont being extremely
interesting and highly appreciated by
ovoryono who attended. This season
has been so encouraging thnt It Is
very probablo that a great effort will
bo made to securo a courso of entor
talnmont for tho next, year that will
If possible, excel that of this year.
Tho Chicago Gleo Club is composed
of only four Blngors who evidently
havo, almost reached tho mark of per
fection In harmony and melody. Each
part was excellently rendered, the
first and second tenors and tho first
and second basses all blending In ono
making tho most inspiring harmony
Imaginable. Besides this, tho solo
work was pleasing In tho cxtromo.
Tho bass was tho feature of tho enter
tainment. Seldom Is a bass of such
merit hoard in Mt. Veronn and those
who hoard him should consider tho
fact that they havo had tho opportun
ity to hear something out of tho ordi
Tho trombone quartet work was a
featuro as it was practically now in
this city and Judging from tho storm
of applauso given on Tuesday oven
lng, it was much appreciated.
Tho character acting was very en
tertaining, tho idea of tho plot being
takon from tho rustic IndlanaHoosIer.
In all It was probably tho most pleas
ing entertainment of tho soason.

roturns recoived from returns receiv
ed from tho official crop and llvo stock
correspondents of tho department, In
dicates tho condition of wheat and
Condition compared with standard
average, 83 per cent.

No Calamity In 1910 Wheat Crop"
Official correspondents of this De
partment estimate tho present condi
tion of tho growing wheat plant at
83 per cont compared with a standard
average. This Is a decline In con
dition of 10 per cent since tho issu
ance of tho last report, Dccombor 1st.
In comparison with condition on cor
responding dato last year It shows an
advanco of 21 per cont. Seeding gen
erally was lato, and fear was express
ed that an early winter would cause
serious damage. Tho plant, however,
mado remarkable growth during tho
month of November, and went into
winter in flno condition. Throughout
tho severe weather It was well pro
tected by a heavy covering of snow,
and whilo a fow correspondents noto
damage by lco covering tho fields aft
er tho disappearance of tho snow, its
dccllno in condition Is attributed
chiefly to tho extromo drouth pre
vailing during, the past month. The
plant is suffering badly for want of
molsturo, and warm rains during April
would greatly Improve ltB appearance.
Of tho harvest of 1909, It Is estimated
that 16 per cont of tho crop remains
In producers' hands.
Winter barley and ryo show the
same growing condition 88 por cent
compared with an avorago.
Tho condition of corn in tho crib
is estimated at 95 per cent compared
with an avorago. Ten per cent of tho
crop remained unhusked during tho
winter, and it is estimated that this
suffeied damage to tho extent of 12
Fruit prospects aro oxcellont, being
estimated at 90 por cent compared
with an average.
Farm work generally Is well ad
vanced. Many correspondents report
oats seeding aB noaring completion
and corn plowing in progress.
