THS MEDINA SENTINEL VOLUME THJRTY-SIg COUNTY DEMOCRATS HAVE GOOD CHANCE TO WIN OFFICES IN FALL Nomination of Senator Harding at the Chicago convention has practically made certain the nomination of Gover nor James M. Cox at San Francisco. The republican Old' Guard knows the value of having a candidate from Ohio. It lost Ohio in 1916 and lost the presidency. This year it has selected the Old Guard candidate who is strong est in Ohio and it is folly to underesti mate the strength of the Marion man as the party's candidate in Ohio in November, especially in Ohio. A glance over the lineup of propos ed Democratic candidates makes it plain that none can meet successfully the situation in Ohio except Governor James M. Cox. The Buckeye chief executive can win over Harding in pivotal Ohio and the San Francisco convention will tumjto him on an early ballot. Democratic circles in Ohio are pleased with the Chicago results as they have good reason to be. , With the national ticket so promising it is up to the state and county to put forward good men who will sweep in to office. Especially in Medina County is there a noticeable apathy among tho i democrats, lhis should not be. A (Tuesday acting In a suspicious man meeting should be held at once and ner.

The list of women elected to serve as delegates and alternates in the National Conven tion at San Francisco, June 28 exceeds the expectation of the most sanguine of the women. The most coveted honor of delegate-at-large has been conferred on twenty five women.. Twenty-three are alter-nates-at-large and more than three hundred will go to the convention as district delegates and alternates. Each State is sending women who have dem onstrated their ability in public ser vice. Beginning in their local clubs, most of them have developed extraor dinary political acumen through the long campaign for suffrage. Many i ed from the truck and sustained per have been prominent in welfare work, ; manent injuries to different parts of and, through the knowledge of what I hjs body- He was unconscious for the vote means as a power for bring- eleven days, he says. ing about needed reforms, have allied themselves with the Democratic party, which stands for progress that will make liberty and quality more than mere Words. Ohio made its tribute to the women by the election of one delegate. Mrs. A. B. Pyke, of Lakewood, is the woman to be honored. At the time she was chosen her election was widely exploit- a iw- Hi v ed as the first in which a woman was accredited to the Democratic National Convention, but South Dakota disputes this claim. However, the example of Ohio is believed to have encouraged other states to show just consideration to the women of the party. BUSINESS MAN OUT FOR COMMISSIONER C. J. De Armitt announces in this issue as a candidate for the of fee of county commissioner, subject of the republican primaries in August. Mr. De Armitt is a Medina business man, having conducted a general store in this city for the last twelve' years. He has been a fair dealer with the pub lic at all times and has a wide ac quainttance over the county. He is re tiring from business, now holding a closing-out sale, and says that if he is chosen by the vors, he will devite much of his time to the office. He is especially interested in good roads, he says, and will do all in his power to perfect our road system. fljjLlg con nected with the Home BuildingTpci ation recently formed here for thejrar pose of building more homes to ac commodate the constantly-increasing population.

FISHER GIRLS GET INTEREST IN STORE The S. S. Oatman grocery and meat market on South Court street which has been conducted for many years by Mr. Oatman, took in two new mem bers this week when the Misses Natlie and Marcella Fisher, grand daughters of Mr. Oatman were given an interest in the store. Mr. Oatman's age precluded his giving much of his time and attention to the business so the girls will hand le this feature. It is understood, however, that Miss Marcella will not be active in the new management, that duty continuing with Miss Natalie who for the past three years, has been serving as bookkeeper, general man ager and buyer for the store. She will be the active head of the new con cern.

VICTIM OF WRECK SUES GOVERNMENT Isaac Zelezneck has brought suit in the court of Common Pleas against John Barton Payne, representing the U. S. Government for the sum of $100, 000 as damages for injuries received August 22, 1918 when a train on the Lake Erie and Western struck a track which he was driving across the cros sing about two miles east of Spencer. He alleges that undue carelessness on the part of the government's agents who were operating the trains at that time was responsible. The track in on a down grade at that point, he says, and a bad curve exists there. The weeds prevented a clear view of the track. No whistle or bell was so(unded, he alleges, and the train was running about 40 miles an hour, Zelezneck alleges that he was hurl- NOBLE CHARACTER I D A DOPC rwrk nrn nncirr Mrs w S'XnZl Court street died Sunday at Fairview hosnital.

She was always happy and' when, at the age of twenty she became a bride, she brought to W. J. Kings bury, a strong faith and love and a helpmeet who has stood for all that is beautiful in life. Only those near to her knew how she grieved for her son, Glenn, who was taken from her last January by an accident. She was not rebellious to her Lord for the sad blow but the load seemed heavier and her heart sadder as a result of her boy's demise. She was a faithful member of the church since childhood and was deeply interested in all good works. She leaves many sorrowing friends upon whom her splendid character is so firmly impressed. ABOUT SCHOOLS "A school can be no, better than the teacher and the community." "Our schools should offer the best possible opportunities to all the children of Medina county. In some cases the dollar and nothing else stands in the way. The strictest economy in the long run demands that we now decide to invest more ,than ever before in the youth of the county." "The schools must run, the peo ple want them to run, the people are able to have them run and they will have them run." D. W. Pearce.

MEDINA COUNTY FARMERS ATTEND MEETING AT EXPERIMENT STATION In spite of the apparent failure of the weather man to supply a good brand of weather for the annual trip to the Ohio Experiment Station at Wooster, Medina County farmers to the extent of two hundred with their families , motored down state Wed nesday and spent the day in studying crop conditions there. The day proved to be a very fine one for such an outing. The weather was fine until the rain came during the late afternoon. However, many" were on their way home and so were not in conevnienced seriously thereby. At one o'clock a party of men were con ducted over the entire experimental plot department where a study of var ious fertilizers conditions is being made.

COUNTY OIL WELLS SHOW PRODUCTION The shallow sand of the Medina oil fields has developed a wonderful pro duction. The wells are being drilled close together, especially around Chatham, the most important produc ing point in the county. Eighty-six wells were completed during May in the Central Ohio area with 53 oil wells with a product ion of 2,336 barrels, 27 dry holes and six gas wells. When compared with April these figures show a decrease in completed wells of 13, seven less oil wells, 117 barrels less production and nine less gas wells, while in dry holes there was an increase of four.

CHANCE lMEETING LEADS TO ARREST Crile Wise, son of Dr. and Mrs. W. D. Wise, of Akron, returned to his home this week after having been held in jail several days in connection with a Dartmouth college shooting affair. The killing was the result of too much liquor. Robert Meads, of La Grange, 111., and a fellow student, Henry E. Maroney, of West Medford, Mass., engaged in an argument which terminated with the shooting to death of Maroney. Young Wise met the slayer at the Hanover station and rode with him to Boston where they were both arrested. Wise was held as a witness in spite of his declaration that he knew nothing of the affair prior to his being eaken into custody. The Wises were residents of Me dina until a few years ago when the doctor left to study abroad, taking up residence in Akron upon his re turri. s Sixty panes of glass in Lodi green houses were broken by the hail storm at that place last week. Miss Sarah E. Handel of Lodi has just finished a one-year course at tne State Normal School at Kent and will teach the seventh grade in Lodi school next season. I studied was of special interest to all present as that is a problem being studied thoroughly by many in this section. One could not help but be convinced of the value of applications of this material for successful crop culture. Mr. C. G. Williams of the Station, who conducted the party, stated that this was the first thing to be done to the surface of the soil for satisfactory results in production. The condition of the hay crop was perhaps most noticeable for where lime had been omitted grass had almost failed for many years and bids fair to keep up this reputation during the present season. The ladies were conducted thru the experimental baking and milling de partments, the florist houses and to other points of interest on the grounds. When time came for departure many were heard to say that the day had been well spent and that a return trip would be made at some future time for further study of the problems THOUSANDS WILL ATTEND CELEBRATION BY LEGION BOYS ORRVILLE MAN SHOT ASSAILANTS ESCAPE Joseph Chaterella, an employe of the railroad at Orrville, is in the hospital in a serious condition wth two bullet wounds in his body, the result of a shooting that occurred recently in that town. Chaterella was working in his gar den when three men approached him and, after a short conversation, one of the men began firing with a 32 calibre revolver. Three shots were fired, two taking effect. One entered the left breast and came out at the shoulder; the second entered the lower part of the abdomen, passed through the body and came out just above the left htp. His assailants ran in the direction of a moving freight train and were not ap prehended.
