Surprise for Ye Ed.
(Stark County News.)
Iast Friday we were happily sur
prised to meet an old friend. Prank
Reddfngs, who with his family was
motoring from Elm wood to the home
of his sister. Mrs. Florence Chasteen,
near Sheffield, to remain till Sundav
evening. Anybody who knew Mr. and
Mrs. Redding would readily recognize
them s they have not changed notice,
ably since leaving CastletOTi 15 years
ago. They are the parents of seven
children, all boys wiih the exception
of the youngest, and the father states
that Rot-coe Is now taller than he him
self, which est us amazed when we
considered the six feet two inches and
more the boy had to grow to get there.

What Ye Ed Knows.
A good many editors are said not
to know much, says an exchange. The
trouble Is they know a lot of stuff
they dare not tell. They know who
drinks the beer, and they know the
ladies who deviate from the straight
path of rectitude, and the boya who
smoke in the alleys and dark places,
and the 1rls who are out auto riding
until the rooeters crow for daylight.
They know the fellows that are good
ray and they know the fellow who
can't get trusted for a tobacco sack
full of salt. They could guess at once
why forno fellows are as they are, and
they could guess pretty closely what
they do to make themselves so. Even
in a town like this they know enough
to make one of the red-hottest, rip
nnorting. high-geared, triple action,
chain-lightning editions you: ever read,
but they also know that it is best for
the community and themselves to let
the law take care of humanity's de
velopment and publish only such news
as w ill do to read in the house. Edi
tors generally pursue this policy and
thereby live longer and get more en
joyment out of life.
Hodgson's Melons Are Fine.
The Times-Record acknowledges a
half-dozen mammoth watermelons
from W. R. Hodgson, the New Boston
melon man. The largest one weighed
44 pounds, and none weighed less than
35 pounds. Another melon, weighing
54 pounds, fell from the wagon In the
west part of town and was cared for
by neighboring children, who promised
to save the seeds.

Frohman had personal charge of the
production and in it he utilized all of

MISTAKE SAVES BOY'S LIFE
Wrong Man Answer Phone; Consent
to Necary Operation
Trenton, N. J. Benjamin Van Zant,
a 14-year-old boy of Oxford Valley, Pa.,
whose leg was amputated at McKinley
Hospital after being accidentally soot
while carrying a gun, is recovering
and a curious incident has become
known in connection with the case.
After the lad wm brought to the hos
pital it was found that to save his
life the leg would have to be ampu
tated. The permission of a, parent
must be obtained before a minor's
limb can be amputated and the sur
geons telephoned to the boy's father,
presumably. He hastened to the hos.
pital. The lad was then under ether
and on the operating table. The man
gave the necessary permission.
The boy's real father arrived at the
hospital and it was discovered that the
wrong person's consent had been ob
tained. It is not known yet who the
other man was. The father was sat
isfied, however, that the surgeons had
done the right thing and he had nc
complaint to make.
