Grant the following 6plendid endorsement in Tuesday's edition of the Akron Germania: Judge Grant for Justice of the Supreme Court. It is announced through the Democratic press, that Judge Grant, of Akron, is a candidate for Jus tice of the Supreme Court. We must confess that the Democrats could not find a better man for this office,-even though we cannot agree with all of his political ideas. . Judge Grant is a man of strong, honest mind and unbiased judgment, with a profound knowledge of the science of law. Whatever may have been the cause of his leaving the Republican party and joining the Dem-" ocratic ranks, it was not from a selfish motive, not for political honors, but for the reason that, with his political convictions, he was no longer at home among Republicans. And to these convictions he gave public expression regardless of personal in terests or those of others. And although his former political friends threatened to treat him as an out law, he went right on his own way, giving abund ant evidence that he was willing to sacrifice every thing for his political convictions. Judge Grant may have been too severe in his attacks upon the Republican party; his political judgment may sound harsh in the ears of our fin-de-siecle people who adiiere to the principle, "alles verstehen, alles-verzeiheu," and it may hurt the feelings of the party fanatic, but to the non partisan, independent citizen he appears to be, for these very reasons, particularly qualified for the .judgeship. Judge Grant may not be what they commonly call a .smart politician, but he is decidedly fit for the bench, and on account of his superior know ledge especially for the bench of the Supreme Court of Ohio. We would recommend his election to this office whether his name was on the Republican or Dem ocratic ticket, for we consider it a pressing duty of the people to look for incorruptible and upright men for their judges and keep political corruption out of the administration of justice. ENTHUSIASTIC Concerning Judge Grant's Candidacy Are His Many Friends -What They Judge C. R. Grant is very well pleased with the enthusiastic man ner in which his friends at Akron and cities throughout the state are receiving the announcement of his candidacy for the nomination for Supreme Judge. Many of Akron's leading Democrats have cheerfully volunteered their support and .prom inent members of the bar in the, Western Reserve are congratulating him upen his determination to enter the race Jor the nomination, at the same time assuring him of their energetic support. "An Ideal Candidate." The following communication ex plains itself: To the Editor': The announcement in your paper that the friends of Judge C..R. Graut have "-prevailed upon him to allow his name to go before the Democratic State convention as a candidate for Supreme Justice, will please every one who wishes to see the triumph of the principles of right and justice. His eminent ability, long experience and profound knowledge of the law and the constitution, coupled with a steadfast adherence to principle, an abhorrence of political trickery and a desire to have the will of the people carried out, in preference to the will of politicalbosses, make him an ideal candidate for the office of a judge. These qualifications are a guarantee to the people that Judge Grant, if nominated and elected, will interpret the law and the constitu tion as the people intended they should be, and not to meet the ex igencies of any corporate or party demand. Respectfully, O. S. Skevkks. Mr. Seevers, the author of the WESTERN STAR. . Mr. and Mrs. Orris Ream spent Sunday with friends near Paxton.

He announces that his .fellow work ingmen are more than pleased with the candidacy of Judge Grant and will do all in their power to bring about his nomination. Tired of Bossism. Simon B. AVearyr one of Akron's well-known manufacturers, writes the Democrat that "if the Demo crats of Ohio will make up their en tire ticket from men as well quali fied for the various places by educa tion, experience, and force of charac ter as Judge Grant is qualified for the office of Supreme Judge, Hanna ism will loose its foothold in Ohio at the elections next fall. Thousands of Ohio's Republicans are thoroughly out of patience with the corrupt methods by which they have been deprived of a voice or control in their party's affairs, and they will quietly but resolutely repudiate these methods at the ballot box." By Acclamation. Ex-Sheriff Wm. Williams an nounces that as he has interpreted party sentiment, Judge Grant will be given the endorsement of Summit county's Democratic convention by acclamation. The Democrat received communi cations from two of Akron's well known independent Republicans late this afternoon giving reasons why Judge Grant should be nominated and why they will support the Dem ocratic ticket in the event that the State convention does the right thing in its declaration of principles and selection of nominees. These com munications will be printed with others that have been received throughout the week. Copley held their anniversary. The Star was well represented. The Sunday school of the U.

Successful Joke Played by Their Friends. An Advertisement Brought a Large Return. Boy's Brought the Felines by the Score. The social crowd, of which Mr. Sam L. AVarner, bookkeeper for the Klages Coal fc Ice Co., and Miss Jes sie C. Why telaw, until recently cor responding clerk for the Werner Co., are members, Is famous for its joke playing. Mr. Warner, it is said, is one of the most prominent and suc cessful jokers in the crowd. Nothing pleased him better than to'conduct a series of jokes on members of the crowd when they got married. Not long ago a prominent young attorney was married. AVhen he and his bride returned to their hoino the house was decorated with old shoes and placards galore. Such signs as "Law by the Bushel," and "Boy Wanted," weie conspicuous, and sundry and various syles of di lapidated baby carriages were in evidence. Th with that good je joKe was enjoyed nature characteristic of the crowd. I But by andyay. Cupid sent an ar- row into MrTAVarner's heart. AVhen it became known that Mr. AVarner and Miss AA'hytelaw were to be .married, the members of the crowd lost no time in racking their brains for the very best jokes to be played on their leader. "I have it," said one. "AVhy, AVarner himself told us the very best going. It was played success fully on a Cleveland newly-married couple. It was advertised that cats were wanted at the residence of the young couple, and all their friends saw that they were supplied. Oh ! It's immense! That's what we'll do" and they did. This want ad. in Tuesday's Demo crat brought good results: AV ANTED A good cat to catch mice. Call at 114 Arine St. and bring cat with you at 9 a. in. AVednesday. It is said that along about the hour named, certain individuals car rying mysterious looking packages approached the residence and deliv ered their burden. When the pack ages was untied out would jump -a cat. By and by little "boys, who read the Democrat, were seen in the neigh borhood. They didn't care how they handled the cats, just so they got them there. AVhile one carried a squalling feline by the tail, another shut off the squall by. grasping Thomas or Tabby,,as the case might be, by the neck. Then it was whispered to the boys that a certain young man was pay ing 5c. per cat were the same deliv ered in good order at 114 Vine st. Business began to get brisk, and cat owners in that neighborhood also began keeping an eye on their favor ite cats. No unusual sight,Jit is said, was to see a crowd of boys and dogs after some scared feline. , But the boys were successful in landing quite a number and now thero are some fine specimens in the cat corral of the yard at 114 Vine st. It was all a huge joke, and all con cerned are laughing jovially jover it. Mr. Warner says his telling; about the Cleveland affair was in his case "bread cast upon the waters." It returned in AVednesday mornings' joke. Mr. AVarner and Miss AVhytelaw were united in marriage at the bride's home AVednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev.A. E. Scoville, pastor of the Baptist church, officiating. The house was beautifully decorated, large wreaths of daisies being con spicuous. The newly-married couple will leave this evening on a wedding tour. This afternoon a one-horse ice wagon was driven back and forward on Vine st. On.it were signs adver tising the AVnrncr-AVhytelaw mar riage Mr. and Mrs. AVarner say they will get even with their friends in some way. SERIOUS INJURIES Conduc tor John A.

SURPRISE Will Follow Report of the Committee. Prof. R. S. Thomas Made a Partial Statement Tuesday Night. Prof. R. S. "Thomas made part of of his statement to the School Board Investigating committee Tuesday night. The work of the committee was not completed last night as was ex pected and undoubtedly the closing session will be held tonight. Prof. Thomas will then complete his statement. The examination of F. G. Frese, J. Kelley and J. C. Meriam, principal of the Spicer school, was completed last night. After tonight's meeting it will take some time before the committee will be ready to make its report. They will review the whole matter first.' More 'facts have been gleaned at each succeeding meeting and there is hardly any doubt about that when the committee makes its report the general public will be surprised at some of the findings. Beware of Food Samples. Quite recently in New York two deaths occurred from poisoning by the use oi powaers sent to the vic tims'by mail. In Leavenworth, Kas., the other day nearly every doctor in town was called to attend the chil dren who had gathered up, eaten and been made ill by samples of an arti cle left at houses by canvassers for advertising purposes. Alum baking powders have always been favorite articles for this sam pling business. Yet there is nothing more liable to lead to danger than the practice of using the various samples of baking powder left at the door. They are presented by irresponsible parties, in appearance a.re not distin guishable from arsenic,'- and indeed, in Indiana some time since one pack age was found, after it had caused the death of the housewife, to have been mixed with that poison. It is safer to refuse all samples of food or medicine offered at the door. Pure cream of tartar baking powders sell upon their merits, and are never peddled or sampled. .a.? settlingVage Question. The wage question between the A. & C. F. R. T. Co. and its employes is not yet settled. No conference has as yet been held by the committee of three owing to the fact that the man selected by the employes AVm. Graham, of the firm of Graham & Baum, is a witness on the Martin embezzlement case now being heard in court. Mr. M. H. Howe of Cuyahoga Falls, selected by the company, de clined to serve on the arbitration board. "The rumor that he was removed because the men objected is false," said Frank E. AVelton, member of the executive board' of the local union, to a Democrat reporter to day. Mr. O, C. Barber has now been se lected by the company. He and Mr. Graham will as soon as possible meet to select another man and the wage question will be duly settled. Both sides have signified their in tention of abiding by the decision. Quiet at Cleveland. The reports today from the street car strike in Cleveland were that the cars were running on the principal streets without interference. The cars are well protected by the police. AN IMPORTANT QUESTION. Bten If It DU1 Spoil the Story & Little. "My little girl," began the man with a fondly fatherly manner. Two men among the listeners got up and went out. "My little girl," repeated the man as he waited for the others to settle down again, .when three arose and went im softly. Only one man remained by the stove and he had a lame foot. "My little girl," said the man for the third time in a hurt tone, but with a fine determination, "is so cute and says snch unexpected things that we sometimes wonder if it is good for her to be so bright. I don't think we are at all prejudiced becanse she is onr child, but really she is the smartest child for her age I ever saw." The man with the lame foot nodded, as if the statement were similar to others he had heard. "Why, do you know," continued the man, "that only this morning as she was stndying her lessons, which she is alow about learning, as all bright chil dren are, she laid aside her book with an air of having had enough of it, and, tnrning to her mother, she said, 'Say, mamma, why isn't children born edn cated?' Now what do you think of that?' And the man with a lame foot laughed right out and asked how old the child was.. Detroit Free Press. No VI. 11)1. Slarn.
