RUNAWAY HORSES SMASH AUTOMOBILE ? Jerking loose from a post to which they had been hitched in the alley back of the Zeigler store Monday morning a fine team attached to a hay wagon belonging to Max Koehler, a farmer living out in the Center Road, ran away, going up Court street at a furious pace. As they swung east on Liberty street, they ran into the big Chamlers car of E. T. Spitzer which was nosed in against the curb in front of the Savings Deposit bank. They hit the car with a tremendous crash, turning it over on its side. One of the horses became entangled in the car and was unable to rise until the ma chine had been righted by bystanders. No serious hurts resulted to the team but the car suffered several injuries. The top was wrecked, the windshield smashed and the radiator badly bent in. An overhauling will be necessary to determine the extent of the damage. As the team dashed up Court street the bridle of one horse was seized by Ford Cannon who attempted to stop the runaways. The bridle broke which probably saved Cannon from injury, as the horses are of the heavy draft type. Mr KnoliW cava hp t.iAH the VinrRrx to a post but one is of a nervous dis position and it is thought that it jerk ed loose and frightened the other. He will settle for the damage to the car. healthIfficers report gratifying The county health officer's report for May has been completed by Dr. R. A Brintnall and shows some Interest - ing figures. There is a total of 46 con tagious diseases in the county for that month. This does not include the cases, included in the April report or those that have developed or been lo cated since June 1. Measles predominates, there being 22 cases under observation. In addi tion, there is one case of German measles. One case of tuberculosis is reported for the month.11 Diphtheria, smallpox and scarlet fever have four cases each and there are two cases of chickenpox and one of mumps. Seven cases of syphilis have been found. The June report, thinks Dr. Brint nall, will show even a smaller number of cases. According to the health of ficer, June is generally a healthful month. At this season of the year, the tone of the body is much higher, due to the lack of decaying vegitation and the absence of climatic changes The. more even temperature and tne diet occasioned by the season's offer ings, partially immunize the body against the reception of disease. TO OBSERVE FLAG DAY . The G. A R. and W. R. C. will ob serve Flag Day June 14 with a picnic dinner in the dining room oi tne l. u. O. F. hall All old soldiers and their families are cordially invited. LIVING COST INCREASE IS LOWEST IN UNITED STATES The Bankers' Trust Company of New York has received from its London correspondent a detailed ana'ysis of the cost of living in various countries as prepared by the British Board of Trade. The percentage of increase in the cost of food, fuel, clothing, etc., is much greater in Europe than America. The following comparison was given: Per Cent -United Kingdom 130 France: Paris . 197 Other Towns 220 Italy: Rome 193 Milan 282 United States 96 Denmark 296 Belgium 142 Norway 201 Sweden 159 Germany 356 The date from which the rise is cortfputed is 1914, except in Ger many, where it is 1910. BODY MANGLED BY BIG CIRCULAR SAW Mrs. J. I. Schaefer, wife of a prom inent farmer living in Montville town ship was seriously injured about four o'clock Monday afternoon when her dress became entangled in a buzz saw, about thirty inches in diameter. The flesh was cut and slashed from her legs and parts of her body were horribly mangled. She is in a serious condition. Mrs. Schaefer was assisting her husband, who was fixing the saw pre paratory to cutting some wood. He had just tightened the belt on the saw which is gasoline driven and turned away. Mrs. Schaefer, in stooping over, drew too near the saw the teeth of which caught in her dress and jerked her toward it. The bouncing of her body against the rapidly-whirling saw provided opportunity for several hor rible mutilations. Mr. Schaefer stop ped the engine as soon' as possible and the injured woman was carried to the house where she was later given med ical attention. Her parents had just left on a trip. A wire was sent and they will doubt less return this week. DIED OF HEART TROUBLE Mrs. S. H. Albertson, of Remsons Corners, died Monday of rheumatism of the heart after a long illness.

Much has been said in this county since farm bureau work started two years ago about cooperative effort among the people of a community as a means of obtaining things unobtain able to individuals. It has remained for the townships in the north part of Medina County to put this anto prac tice and now they are beginning to see the results of the effort, says County Agent Salisbury. For over a year the farm bureau men in Liverpool township have been meeting regularly and have been at tempting to do some of the things that need the solid backing of the entire farming community. One of the im portant steps was the securing of the means of weighing materials purchas ed in carlots and distributed to far mers in small quantities. This called for a wagon scale owned by the farm ers and located at the shipping station. The matter was handled thru a com- COOPERATION AMONG COMMUNITIES GAINS SUCCESS, SAYS COUNTY AGENT SALISBURY MAYOR WILL MISS RIDE IN AIRPLANE Mayor H. H. Hartzog has been in vited to attend the inter-city airplane races and demonstrations to be held in Cleveland, July 2 to 7, inclusive. The committee states that if a suitable landing field exists here, an aviator will come after the mayor and take him to Cleveland for the show. It is believed that Mayor Hartzog is well content that no landing iield is at this point. The purpose of the air show is to convince the public that civilian avia tion is safe, though expert air pilots will include sensational stunts. May ors Day will be July 3 at which time Mayor Hartzog will have the oppor tunity of making a flight. OVER FIVE HUNDRED AT SUNDAY SCHOOL MEETING The Medina county Sunday School Convention held at Wadsworth last week had a total registration of 569.

Complaint has been made that two lit tle girls, one aged 7 and the other 10 years, were subjected to indignities by Frazier who is now in the county jail in this city. BRUNSWICK CADET IS PERFECT SOLDIER Clarence Rhode of Brunswick, a freshman at the Ohio State University at Columbus, has been signally hon ored by a regular army officer who recently reviewed the cadets. The Brunswick boy was proclaimed a splendid type of soldier and was re commended as a standard for emula tion by the officer. Cadet Rhode act ed as the orderly of the Colonel in specting the cadets for the entire day. Commenting upon the action of the army officer, the Columbus Citizen of Columbus, has this to say editorially: "Step one pace forward !" sharp ly ordered the regular army of ficr, in a gruff voice, addressing a fine-looking, up-standing young student in khaki who stood at atten tion in the front rank of the cadet regiment at Ohio State University, while it was being put through a I severe federal inspection test. The young man, in tear and tremoiing, expecting fully to be called for something amiss from a military standpoint in his attire or deport ment, obeyed with alacrity. But it was no reprimand he was to receive. Instead of this he was being singl ed out for a rare compliment. The army officer, surveying him intent ly from head to foot, and speaking loudly, declared the young man to be a splendid type of what a real soldier should be, and he com mended him to the regiment as an example to be emulated.

The success with which the Liver- pool men were working attracted others and this spring the Brunswick and Hinckley men developed organiz ations in their townships for similar purposes. Recently the county agent suggested that it would be a worth while thing for the men to secure a power ditching machine if they were to properly tile drain their farms. Im mediately they became interested and it was soon found that there was con siderable interest in the problem. The result of this activity is the assurance that a tile ditching machine will be purchased by a group of farmers in these townships for their own use. This is one of the best developments PROMISES BIG TIME AT LAKE JULY FIFTH The American Legion is shaping thngs up for the monster celebration which will be held July 5 at Chippe wa Lake Park.

NOT SECURED Results of the county-wide Salvation Army drive held last week have not yet been determined, accordiing to W. C. Smith, treasurer for the drive. He safle that $109 was gathered in here last Friday but we are still $141 shy of our quota. The various villages of the county had an allotment of $250 each, the townships, $125 each. The toteJ, county quota was $3000. It is very 'probable that the full quota win have been made when all reports from various chairmen are received. Joe Seymour was head of the county drive. THREE HURT IN INTERURBAN WRECK Hyde Weaver of Seville, an em- P1". of the Cleveland Southwestern . ... . loves . , nfiA . . , perienced lesser hurts when a north bound milk train and a south bound worjc train met in collision at Stroack er Curve, three mile north of Medina, about 7:30 o clock Thursday morning A HaT,,, rfnnhlp m,rvp exists it. this point and the two trains were moving rapidly. As they came togeth er, Weaver, who was conductor of the milk train, was jammed between the milk cans, crushing the bones in his left leg. The motorman, Fairchild, leaped from the car just beiort,the trains met. Bill Holtz, a member of the work train crew also jumped to safety. About 8 men were on the work train and 3 on the milk train. Two of the section men, of Berea, were taken to the hospital at Cleveland with Weaver after the trio had been given emergency treatment by physicians of this city who were rushed to the scene. The cars were badly damaged but traffic was not delayed. MORE BOOZE SEIZED August Sanich of Wadsworth was fined $200 and costs for having five gallons of raisin jack in his posses sion which the officers seized as he was about to disjose of it, it is alleged, to John Muich, a restaurant keeper at that place. The jack wa'S valued at $100. in the county agent work that has tak- en place. When we start permanent fam jmproVements we are building ., j np uie community ana the common wealth and are developing better cit- izens. It is hoped that this work may snread to other townships. Do farmers need brass bands? Many people Would say at once that they do not, yet the farm bureau men of; Brunswick thought differently about the matter. In consideration of these feelings they are aiding in the support-of a band at that town where concerts will be given occasionally. Farm Bureau men of Liverpool were interested enough in streets lights in the village of Valley City that they took it upon themselves to aid finan cially in securing the same. While they do not live in the village never the less it is their town and they ex pect to aid in its development so far GRADUATING CLASS MEDINA HIGH SCHOOL NUMBERS FIFTY-FOUR OVER BILLION DOLLARS PAID TO SERVICE MEN Up to May the Bureau of War Risk Insurance settled a total of 127,151 insurance claims, represent ing a total value of $1,131,552, 173.45. At the time of this comp ilation, only 5,119 claims were pending, and in most of these cases the beneficiaries reside in foreign countries where disturbed condi tion render communication lm possible. Up to the same time, the number of applications for conversion of War Risk Insurance into Govern ment Life policies numbered 133, 242, for amounts aggregating more than $400,000,000. Regardless of how long a service man's insurance has lapsed or been cancelled, and regardless of how long he may have been out of the service, a special ruling permits re instatement at any time up to July 1, this year. WILL SPEAK ABOUT SALVATION ARMY A very interesting talk was given to the Kiwanis Club at St. Paul's parish house last Friday by Corporal Mabelle Musser, late of the U. S. Marine Reserve Corps. Miss Musser is a Medina county girl whose talk was most entertaining, being a narra tive of many good things that occur red in the service. The attendance prize last week, a novelty smoking set, was given by Dawson and Leland Longacre and passed into the keeping of Frank Sedgwick. This week the luncheon will be held at the Church of Christ and the Seymour and John R. Moore. These gentlejnen jrifl tell. of Jibe work of , the speakers will be M. G.

LEGION BUYS CAR FOR COUNTY NURSE The local post of the American Le gion, through its financial committee, is raising funds for the purchase of a Ford Coupe, valued at $935, which shall be at the service of Miss Con stance Hanna, the county Red Cross nurse. Miss Hanna will use the car I ln maicing ner wips aooui we county 1 L 1 A 1 A A1- - J attending at the homes where con- tagious diseases exist. This is a splendid move on the part of the Legion boys an act that evi dences their continued willingness to be identified largely with community development as well as having been such strong factors in making the world safe for democracy. It is believed that the county will take over this car and maintain it in the regular health department, re imbursing the boys for the unselfish outlay. ELEVATOR MEETING A meeting in the interest of the co operative elevator movement was held Thursday evening of this week at Brunswick. T. D.Phillips of the State Bureau of Markets, outlined the steps necessary in the proper organizing of the cooperative elevator. A large crowd were present. A similar meeting was held at Litchfield Wednesday night. as they can. Recently the committlees of the three townships on the north met and found that they had many problems that were in common. To meet this need they appointed a special com mittee of five men from each township whose duty it was to investigate every possibility toward the improvement of conditions of interest to their district. Of the many things that they have taken up the most important from the standpoint of finance is the possi bility of a cooperative elevator. A pro position will oe troroly gone into. Other farming communities should pattern after the aggressive men in the groups just named. If there is a problem affecting your community, you and you only can solve it. Get together and stay together in this work of developing the farms of Me dina County. Forty-one of the fairer sex and thirteen of the sterner classification for June 1920 to the future country.
