Made To Hold Up A
Twice In A Night
Henry Monroe Has An Ex
While Returning Home On
Got Away From One Bold
Hold Up Man
Only To Be Accosted
Evidences of hold-up men have
again como to light In Mt. Vernon In
different portions of the west end of
tho city. Since tho outbreak sever
al months ago, no hold ups have been
reported until on Monday night when
severarattempts were made by one
man to arrange his plans for a suc
cessful hold-up. Mr. Henry Monroe,
residing on South Jefferson street,
and whob employed as conductor on
tho Mt. Vernon Electric Ry., often
works on a night run and does not
get home until a late hour. This was
the case on Monday evening when Mr.
Monroe was going homo at about
11:30 o'clock and had reached Adams
street, where he Intended to turn
south, he saw a man standing In the
shadows This did not look good so
Monroo went on down a block further
to 'Jefferson street and the man had
passed down the allow parallel with
him and was waiting at that end of
the alley. Passing on west another
block, Mr. Monroe borrowed a revolv
er of a friend and when Harrison
street was reached, he turned south
and walked down tho middle of tho
street and sure enough, tho man was
there and ordered Monroe to halt.
Being In tho middle of the road with
a good gun In his hand, he evidently
thought that it would be too easy
a way for a man to get his money so
he ran swiftly and did not heed bis
calls to halt.
This was not the end of the hold up
business for the night and the conduc
tor encountered still another foot pad
before he reached home. South Har
rison street Is a very dark after Gam
bler street is passed and it was here
that the second man made an attempt
to get In his handiwork. Monroo was
very watchful after his first experi
ence and It was not long until a man
was seen to be standing behind a largo
square post, which Is used by a family
residing near there, as a braco for a
wlro clothes line. It was necessary to
pass near tho man so with revolver, In
hand, tho conductor inarched along
apparently without the least thought
of molestation. Tho hall from tho
man camo as soon as he was opposite
and ordered Monroo to throw up his
hands. Not wishing to part with his
ready cash, ho did throw up his hands
but not in tho way that tho robber ex
pected, Tho revolver was brought to
a level with the man's body and was
discharged. The aim was bad and tho
bullet did not find Its mark, but It
had the desired effect. Tho would-bo
lobber whirled and ran with all his
speed and escaped and no further at
tempts wore made to get him. "

Troubles Caused The Presi
dent Of Berea College
To Resign His Position Ant)
His Abandonment Of The
Ministry For Law
Surprised His Friends
Throughout The State
Until Oomestic Troubles
Came To Light
Tho question of a wife or a career
was at tho back of tho resignation of
Itov. Dr. Robt. L. Waggoner, as presi
dent of Baldwin Unlvorslty.
This became known Monday when
it was learned that Dr. Waggoner had
enrolled as a member of tho Cleveland
Law School and that ho had been In
marital difficulties for threo years.
When Dr. Waggoner accepted the
presidency of Baldwin, ho said:
"In accepting tho presidency of
Baldwin UnUeisity, I do It with an
eye single to God's 6rk and His call
ing. While to mo It means much, I do
It, looking to Him and to you for as
sistance In making Baldwin Universi
ty a power for good in the commun
ity." Dr. Waggoner spoke to tho mem
bers of his alma mater" as they gath
ered at the alumni banquet table in
tho parlors of tho English Methodist
Episcopal chuich in Berea, O., on the
night of Juno 10, 1908. And while all
others were overjoyed as the words of
acceptance fell from tho speaker's lips,
ho alone looked sad, for he was think
ing of ono who from the first had
urged him not to tako tho position
tendered him by the trustees of the In
stitution. That one was Mrs Lillian
Mcacham Waggoner, his wife.
Tho election of Dr. G. A. Reeder of
Mt. Vornon, former superintendent of
tho Cleveland district of the North
Ohio Conference, to succeed Dr. Wag
goner came as a surprise to even the
outgoing president's most intimate
friends. "I believe my stepping down
will bo for tho best Interests of the
school," was the only commpnt Dr.
Waggoner had to make when asked
concerning his lesignation.
When In tho spring of 1308, Dr. Geo.
B. Rogers resigned as president of
Baldwin, the efforts of tho trustees
and members of tho alumni were di
rected in tho choice of the "one best
man" for the position. That man
ought to be a giaduato of tho institu
tion, they so,id. Session after session
was held, and finally tho cholco fell
upon Dr. Waggoner. Tho lattor was
then pastor of tho First Methodist
Episcopal church of Tiffin, O., which
charge he had filled for five years.
Mrs. Waggoner liked the social at
mosphere of that city and was not de
siious of leaving. Dr. Waggoner's
salary as president was less thanhls
salary as pastor of tho Tillln church.
Ho sought a chamber in a rela
tive's homo In Berea and there, on his
knees, ho asked guidance. And while
ho piayed came a tolegtam from Tif
fin urging him not'to accept. It was
signed by his wife. Ho visited tho
home of her mother In Berea and talk
ed tho mattor over with her.
Tho faculty, alumni and friends of
tho school had alroady seated them
selves at tho banquet tablo but tho
chair provided for Dr. Waggoner was
vacant. After wrestling In prayer,
which lasted for hours, he decided his
placo was at tho head of tho unlvorsl
ty, and when he entered tho banquet
room ho was greeted with a mighty
From that day on Dr. and Mrs.
Waggoner lived apart. For several
months she continued to resldo at Tif
fin. Then their household effects wero
placed In storage In Berea and Mrs.
Waggoner took up her residence with
her mother. They wero seldom seen
In each other's company.
Shortly after tho opening of school
Dr. Waggonor took up tho study of
law In tho Cleveland law department
of Baldwin University. For two years
he continued to teach and study.
Slnco his retirement from tho uni
versity he Is devoting all his tlmo to
his senior year in law. Ho has giv
en up his residence In Berea.
Dr. Waggonor was a member of the
class of 1892 at Baldwin. Among the
pastorates filled by him wero thoso at
Brooklyn, Lakowood, Wellington nnd
Tlflln. Ho is Jtnown throughout Ohio
as an able platform speaker and lec

least temporarily, abandoned his tnln
