Preparing For Battle Royal With Ohio
Match Company of Wadsworth.
Mr. George P. Prindle,Washingtou,
D. C; C. B. Churchill, Waterbury,
Conn.; Charles Baird of Akron, able
attorneys, and Mr. O. E. Robinson,
Baltimore manager, are at the St.
Nicholas preparing to participate in
the legal battle royal, the suit of the
Diamond Match company of Barber
ton, Ohio, against the Ohio Match
company of Wadsworth, Ohio, which
will be tried in the Federal court at
Cleveland, says the Cincinnati En
quirer. Mr. Charles W. Baker of Cincin
nati, is associate counsel for the
Diamond people. Mr. Robinson, the
Baltimore manager of the Diamond
Match people, claims that the Wads
worth (Ohio) company has clearly
miringea upon tfte patent machin
ery, etc., of his company, and will
be mulcted to the tune of f 1,000,000.
He says that 18 other concerns
tackled the Diamond concern, only
to go to the wall. The Diamond
plant at Barberton turns out daily
16,000 gross of matches, or 130,400,000
matches every 24 hours. The com-
Eany has a plant of like size near
iverpool, England, and is putting
in plants all over the globe, confi
dently expecting within the next
year or two to control the match
market of the world.
A word to Ohio's Democratic edi
tors Tvho are cleaving each other,
meat-ax fashion, because they can
not agree upon a man to nominate
for Governor: While you are butch
ering one another to make a Hanna
holiday, do not mistake the applause
of the Republican galleries for the
sober approval of the rank arid file
of the. Democratic party. It is no
credit to any party that its leaders
of thought should neglect the party's
principles to quarrel over the ambi
tions of individuals. Least of all
should the leaders of the Democratic
party be engaged in such small business.

A performance, probably unequaied
in turf history, was made on Satur

a mile in 2:11J to wagon, driven by
her owner, Mr. W. M. Cummer.
Temper is the smallest trotter that
was ever on tho turf, standing barely
14 hands and weighing 700 pounds.
In her trip she trotted the quarter in
32, and was then taken back, but
being driven out from the three
quarters, trotted the last quarter in
31, the time'of the last half being

breeding that raced considerably

HOW TO MAKE
PEACH ICE CREAM
One pint of sweet cream, oue pint
of new milk, one heaping coffee cup
ful of sugar. Place over the fire until
it comes to a boil. Cool, and add one
quart of peach pulp, which has been
rubbed through a sieve. Freeze until
stiff. Anyone who has a small freezer
can make Peach Ice Cream, or you
can order it from Model Bakery by
giving the order a few hours before
wanted. Our Ice Cream,this season,
has been most satisfactory. The com
pliments have been frequent and
very gratifying. You will only need
try it to be convinced that it is made
from pure cream and best flavoring.

Mammoth Combinations For Freight
Trains Ready by December.
It seems that the whole story has
not yet been told concerning the new
engines of the Erie, says the Cleve
land Leader. They have now under
order from the various plants some
thing like 44 new engines. Of these,
20 are from the Brooks works atDun
kirk, and are of the mammoth com
bination type, which are the largest
engines on any road in the country.
These are similar to the great combi
nation engines which are now being
run on the Mahoning division exclu
sively for the purpose of hauling
heavy ore trains from the lakes to
the furnaces, and the coal trains
from the mines to the lake's. The
new engines being similar to the
ones now in use, will be put into ser
vice on the main line, where they
will haul the heavy freight trains
that have to make the big grades.
A few things are just being learned
about the engines that are being
made in the shops at Meadville.
Five of them are new and are design
ed for fast passenger business, being
very similar to the Atlantic type, of
which the road has already a supply.
These tre to have a 78-inch drivers
and are to have boilers that will car
ry constantly 200 pounds pressure of
steam to the square inch. The ten
ders will carry 6,000 gallons of water.
The engines will be able to run from
Marion to Chicago, a distance of 2G9
miles, with but two stops for water.
The cylinders will be 18x26. The en
gine without the tender will weigh
124,000 pounds. The tender will car
ry 12 to 14 tons of coal.
Four of the nine engines now being
built will he remodeled, being made
into the Wooten type of boilers, and
will be similar to those now oper
ated on the Mahoning division. They
will be used for freight purposes
In addition to all of these engines
there are the fifteen pabsenger en
gines of the Atlantic type that are
now under the process of construc
tion, and will be out in a very short
time. It is estimated that all of
these engines will be on the road be
fore the first of December.
Of the Koplin Family at Lakeside-
A very pleasing event at Lakeside
park Thursday was the fifth annual
reunion of the Koplin family. The
family descendants began to arrive

full of pleasure and enjoyment to all.
The reunion was attended by about

A most sumptuous dinner was
served by the women. The feast
was spread on seven tables in one of
the park pavilions, and was replete
with everything calculated to delight
and indulge the appetite. Supper
was also eaten in the park.
After dinner the assemblage was
addressed by Rev. Edwin R. Wil-
liard, pastor of the Grace Reformed

ber of the Koplins are members.
