Was Bern And Raised At
Tho Now York letter In the Cincin
nati Enquirer on Sunday contained
tho t following nrtlclo concerning , a
Knox county, Ohio, man who has
"madovgood" In Now York City:
Colonel WiUon W. Butler, a high
up official of tho Canadian Car and
Foundry Company of Montreal, has
been in Now York this week confer
ring with railroad magnates of ovory
section. This statement doos not
mean so much to Ohio readers of tho
Enquirer until a llttlo story of a young
man's rise in tho world Is told. Col
onel Butler was a country boy in Dan
ville, Knox county, Ohio, near Mt. Ver
non, when less than 30 years ago he
yearned to know more of tho world
awa.y from tho banks of tho Kokosing.
Ho had a short service as clerk In a
Country storo and then went with tho
Z. L. Whlto store, in Delaware. Thoro
ho met young Sam Glover, nephew of
a leading merchant. They talked It
over, ns twenty-year-old lads will, and
dcclded-to make their way In Cincin
nati. Thpy had no capital and never
had been In so largo a city, whoro
they arrived in 18S2 and put up at tho
old Indiana House. Both secured em
ployment quickly at ?30 a month. But
ler was in Shilllto's, while Glover
yearned for electrical circles. Both
kept going up steadily and today,
while Glover has made a place for
himself In Ohio, his chum, Butlor, has
done remarkably well in railroad and
manufacturing circles, putting him
self In tho millionaire circles with a
rfipldlty that has startled his old-time
Delaware comrades. Even so, Colonol
Butler's success has not spoiled him
and he remains as calm .and consider
ate as when ho Was behind the coun
ter in Olive Green or at Shilllto's.

Football Scores All Over Toe
Wooster, O., Oct. 31 Woostor won
her first game of tho season Saturday
by defeating Kenyon 21 to 0, Tho
Woostor boys went Into tho gamo like
fiends, and tho touted Kenyon ginger
and aggressiveness was not very much
In evidence. Both teams wero very
light and about equal in weight. Eid
er kicked a perfect field goal from the
30-yard lino after flvo minutes of play.
Woostor opened up and, by a sories of
forward passes from K. Johnson to

score at tho end of tho first half 9 to 0.
In the second half McSweeney Inter
cepted a forward pass and got away
for a 75-yard run and a touchdown,
making the score 15 to 0. After the
next klckoff Mackintosh recovered a
punt and ran 45 years for a touch
down, making. tho final count 21 to 0.
Wooster used a variety of tricks and
passes that had Kenyon guessing all
the time. Tho tackling of Mackin
tosh was a feature of tho gamo. While
McSweeney was the particular star,
Hackott, Johnson, Elder and Whlto
and tho entire lino wero right there
every minute. Ueinhelmer .was the
star lor Kenyon.

Washington, Oct. 31 Expedition of
tho malls by tho extension of the use
of automobiles In tho postal servlco Is
being advocated by tho postofflco de
partment. Heavy automobile express
wagons aro bolng substituted for tho
old typo horso-drawn wagons used In
transporting the malls between rail
way Btatlons and postofflces and their
branches. Tho postmaster general to
day signed contrncts for four addition
al automobiles to be used In tho mail
collection service at Cleveland and for
throe additional automobiles to bo
similarly used at Indianapolis. v
Tho motorcycle Is being extensively
used in tho transportation of malls In
suburbnn towns whereresldences aro
widely scattered and long distances
havo to bo traversed rapidly In order
to lnsuro prompt service.
One of the plans for tho re-organization
of the rural delivery servlco, Is
the substitution of light automobiles
for horso carts, permitting delivery
and collection on several routes In the
same timo It now takes to traverse
ono and resulting In more effective
and less costly service.
Battery Used At llucyrus To
Start A Horse
Bucyrus, Ohio, Oct. 31 Samuel
Ciills has balky horso which the av
erago man would call a misfortune.
No so with Sam. Mr. Crllls says he
feels quite like an automobillst when
he starts for a drlven that all that
he has to do Is to pour a llttlo gaso
line on the cushions of his buggy to
furnish tho amell. and like the autc
Ist he can usually figure on walking
The balky horso is so bad that It
isn't used exefpt on extraordinary oc
casions. Sam Jr., doesn't share his
father's contented spirit, "while sitting
in the buggy for hours waiting for the
horse to get busy again, and ho isn't
like his mother, who always takes her
knitting along when she starts to
drlvo behind "Old Balky."
So he has pecured a storage bat
tery and connected It up under tho
buggy seat. When the old horso balks
now It's easy to complete the circuit
and touch tho nag with tho wire. The
horse "starts on the spark" overy
timo and starts on "high speed" at
Household And Sadness Pre
vails In This Home
Washington C. H., Oct. 31 At At
lanta, Pickaway County, near here,
there is a stricken household and the
sadness of that homo cannot be fully
appreciated except by persons who
have passed through similar exper
iences. Several weeks ago the three daugh
ters of C. C. Morris, who runs a gen
eral storo in tho village, were stricken
with typhoid fever. They wero Ber
tha, Gertrude and Margaret, and they
thought much of ono another. They
were in different rooms, and each took
the greatest interests tho welfare of
tho others, asking tho nurses frequent
ly how tho others were getting nlong.
About two weeks ago Bertha, tho old
est girl, died, and fearing that It might
kill tho others to hear of tho death of
their slBter, tho fact of tho death was
kept from tho sick ones, and the body
was taken to a neighbor's houso and
tho funeral held at tho church. When
asked by tho other sister how Bertha
was they wero told that sho had been
taken to their grandma's to be taken
care of, and they never knew that
sho was dead. ,
Now another chapter Is added to
tho story. Night beforo last Gertrude
dlod and was burled yesterday by the
sldo of her sister. The news is kept a
secret from Margaret, tho youngest
one, who lies In a critical condition,
as It is feared tho shock would bo too
great for her to bear. Tho task that
tho family and nurses havo had to
endure In keeping tho secret since tho
death of Bertha has been almost un
endurable, as tho sick ones havo ask
ed frequently how the others wore and
they havo urged tho nurses not to for
get to glvo them their medicine. Ger
trude was laid away nover knowing
that Bertha was dead.
When James Walter Steeplcton
stepped from tho door of tho Ohio
penitentiary at Columbus at G:30
o'clock Friday morning after having
served a two-year term for criminal
assault, ho was met by Sheriff George
C. Smltley and re-arrested and taken
hack to Zanesvillo to face Indictments
for bigamy and perjury, growing out
of his marriage hero on Juno 10th,
1908, to Miss Mlna Elben of Utica,
Steeplcton was Indicted by the Mus
kingum county and grand Jury In April,
1909. Ho was at that tlmo serving tho
sentence for criminal assault from
Licking county which terminated Fri
day morning. Tho Elben girl's father
from Utlca lodged the Information
against Steepleton for the local grand
Jury. Tho penitentiary authorities
wero notified that ho was wanted at
tho expiration of his sontence.
According to Information In the
hands of the prosecuting attorney
Steepleton secured a marriage license
in tho Muskingum probate court to
marry Miss Elben who was then but
lo years old. He made oath on that
occasion that the girl was a resident
of Muskingum county and that the
girl -was eighteen years of ace. Far
this reason ho was Indicted for per
jury. Tho record of tho marriage license
office at Slstersvlllo, W. Va., shows
that ho was married on August 31,
1901, to Bertha May Lightner by Rev.
H. B. Bowden. At tho time of the
grand Jury investigation here this wo
man was living at Empire, O., and was
brought hero and testified aeainst
her husband and Miss Elben, or Mrs.
Steepleton No. 2, was alsb a witness
on tho occasion.
It seems tnat Steepleton was llvinjf
in Newark at the time of the second
marriage and that he attemnted to
securo the marriage license here but
was refused. He then went to Zanes
vllle, and secured the necessary paper.
Steepleton pleaded guilty to the

a fainting spell, she fell forward Into
tho open fireplace, and tho husband
returning homo after several hours'

with head and ono arm burned off.
The woman was found on tho bed
with all the clothing burned from her

made by the child. The husband is

A very unfortunate flro occurred
Just north of tho city on Saturday ev

lng to Mr. Frank McCormlck of thla
city, was burned with all of Its con
tents. The houso was situated near

unfortunate part of the flro was., tha
fact that several hundred pairs of pi
geons were burned to death as the
flames obstructed the openings,
through which they could escape. The
