Many of the boys are getting old and
cannot stand the trip to these re
unions and must forego tho pleasure
enjoyed by those who do go. Many
of the wives and families' were pres

of the exercises, making the day one
long to bo remembered.
The roll of dead was called for tho
past year and the names of four, as
follows, were announced: A. D.
Launder, Co. B; Lewis Kah, Co. F;
Joseph Phillips tfhd Robert A. Larl
more, Co. G.
The committee on resolutions re
ported as follows:
Comrades, another year has come
and gone and at our annual roll call
tho names of Comrades A. D. 'Laun
ders, Lowis Kah, Joseph Phillips and
Robert A. Larimore have not respond
ed. Theso comrades have gone to tho
eternal camping grounds. They were
brave soldiers, true comrades, who
stood shoulder to shoulder with us In
tho fore front of battle In tho great
struggle for tho supremacy of tho old
flag, and for tho life of this nation and
liberty of Its citizenship.
Resolved, That we will miss from
our ranks and annual reunions, yet
ire can cherish their memories by
remembering their valiant services,
their devotion to their country, and
loyalty to the Stars and Stripes.
Resolved, That while wo bow In
humble- submission to the will of tho
Great Commander of nil in ordering
theso comrades from our ranks; wo
feel deeply tho loss.
Resolved, That wo extend to fami
lies of theso comrades our heartfelt
sympathy and point them for comfort
and consolation to that same Com
mander who took them from their
homes and firesides and who dooth
all things well.
Col. L. G. Hunt reported tho follow
ing special sentiment on tho death
of Comrade Robert A. Lariraoro of
Company G: k
Comrades, it Is almost Inorodiblo,
yet it is too true, that our comrado
Robert A. Larimore, and his amiablo
wifo were murdered in their homo In
Smiliury, O., a few months ago by a
frond Incarnate. No braor soldier
than R. A. Larimore over enlisted in
tho army; no grander Christian gen
tleman in war or peace walked tho
earth, always practicing tho princi
ples of thO golden juIp, no man in
tho Twentieth Ohio, or In the army
can over say aught against Robert A.
Larimore. That such a man and Bol
dier of his country should be tho vic
tim of tho murderer's hand is a sad,
sad ending of a noblo life. Comrades,
I ask that theso words bo mado a
part of our records.
Letters of regret were read from
Lt. Henry O. Dwight, now a minister
In tho American Blblo House, Astor

Capt. Sklllen says he has met the
enemy and surrendered for tho ilr3t
time in his life. "L attended an old
friend's funeral some time ago and
listened to a good funeral oration and
whllo there wondered what the good
man of God would say of him if he
was tho other man. I had a struggle
to get to the church and afterward
went to the doctor's office and came
homo with powder and pills and
dopes and squills and retired to the
room Valentine's day 159 daya ago,
and have never been out since and"
never expect to go out alive." He
asked that the boys write him a fare
well letter. Tho letter was written
to him and signed by every comrade
present expressing sadness and bid
ding him good-by.
The next reunion will be hold at
Hiawatha Park, Mount Vernon, Ohio,
and the date will be named by the
president and secretary. It will be
later in tho season as the date of the
Sidney reunion was at too busy a time
for many of the boys to attend.
Shoit talks were made by nearly
all comrades present and quite a
number of the ladies. Songs were
sung and three, of the old comrades

Studebaker "40." iAIr. John G. Todd
of this city was official marker in Mt.
Veinon and stationed himself at tho in
tersection of the north side of the
square and Main street. The cars
came in on the Wooster road and
down Main street and tho nnme of
the car and the tlmo of arrival was

the record was kept by Mr. Todd.
In this event there were a greater
number of cars than has ever been

the party and the music rendered by

Of Minnesota In A Lively
Minneapolis, Minn., July 27 A live
ly nnd Interesting tension Is predicted
for tho Democratic State convention
which will meet In Oie auditorium
here tomorrow to nominate candidates
for governor, lieutenant governor, sec
retary of state, treasurer and other
state officers to be voted for next No
vember. The convention will be com
posed of over 1,000 delegates, and a
majority of them are already here.
Although the outlook for Democratic
success in Minnesota this year is not
regarded so bright as It might be, still
tho pnrty leaders generally entertain
a feeling of confidence and believe
that with the right candidate for gov
ernor they will stand an even chance.
Since the death of Governor Johnson
the Democrats have lost control of tho
Btate House machine, as all the other
state officers are Republican, and the
the state is normally Republican by
The liveliest discussion in tomor
row's convention is likely to be over
the county option issue. Many of the
party leaders believe the Democrats
this year should seek to secure con
trol of the legislature on a county op
tlon issue, which the Republicans havii
rejected. On the other hand, there
are many influential Democrats who
arc opposed to a declaration In favor
of county option, chiefly becauso they
believe that lt would cost tho party
tho large German vote and arouse bit
ter opposition on the part of tho brew
ery and liquor interests. The intro
duction of the subject in the conven
tion is certain to precipitate a spirit
ual debate, but tho county optionlsts

the candidate for governor, in spite of
the former governor's refusal to be the
party standard bearer. Mr. Llnd has
flatly declared that he will not accept
the nomination and has fled to the
Pacific coast in an effort to escape the
importunities of his friends. But not
withstanding his refusal tho prevail
ing opinion seems to be that the form
er governor will be named and that he
will be persuaded to accept tho nomi

is made the chief Issue of the cam
paign. Mr. Lind is pronounced in fav

believe there is no chance of his ac
cepting the nomination unless there
be a county option plank in the plat
form. Congressman W. S. Hammond Is re
garded as a strong reserve candidate
for the head of the ticket. He is mak

You cannot net a eood
waterproof roof for your building
from a poor roofing.
The roof of your building is the
most important part of it and ;
unless your roofing is right, there will
be no peace of mind for
those who live under it.
A roof that leaks causes no end of
trouble, besides a lot of damage.
The best way to protect yourself from
these unnecessary troubles, is to
use Malthoid Roofing.
Malthoid Roofing is made in the
largest and best equipped
roofing factory in the world.
The men who make it have been

which will give perfect satisfaction,
no matter how it is used,
where it is used or
under what conditions.
The makers of Malthoid Roofing
guarantee it to be a perfect roofing ' , -
to give perfect satisfaction and to
last as long as the building it covers, ,
provided it is properly laid and
ordinary care is taken of it.
