ROLLED THRU SCREEN , ON SECOND FLOOR Death Resulted From Fractured v Skull, in Cleveland v Hospital on Wednesday. A distressing accident, almost tragic in the circumstances attending it, oc curred the home of Comity Y. M. C. Hi KILLED A. Secretary E. Barnes on the night of July 4, by which his thirteen-months-old son sustained injuries which resulted in his death on Wed nesday morning. The' child had been ill for several days and Mrs. Barnes had kept t on a bed stationed by a chamber window, the latter screened to secure a more free ciriulation of air during the pres ent excessively hot weather. About midnight on Monday Mrs. Barnes ex amined her" baby and finding it ap parently asleep, returned to her own - bad in a room adjoining. A moment or two later her attention was attract ed to a peculiar sound, outside ""Th house. Instinctively hurrying'to .the child's bed she was horrified to find it vacant, the broken window screen gum luuK icsuiuuuy oi wnar nan happened. Mrs. lvin Beck residing next door, was the first to respond to. the mother's frantic ca for help, and the child was taken to the office of Dr. HP. H. Robinson, wheVe - it was , found to have sustained a serious frac ture of the skull.- The c&ld was thlr taken, to Fairview hospital, Cleveland where at first the surgeons thooghl the life yof the child; might be saved. Later, however, it was discovered that death wis certain. Mr. names was away at thetime attending a Y. M. C. Av summer con ference in "Wisconsin. There was no way to get in touch with him as lie was euroute hme. Trains entering Cleveland were watched by Cleveland Y- Mi C. A. men and luckily on Tues day morning he was intercepted as he alighted at the union depot. Thus he was enabled to see his son while the III lei was yet alive. Jt should be stated in justice to the mother that the screen through which the baby fell was fastened with nails, as were all the other chamber win dows. Atd the only plausible explana tion is seems is that the child was siezed with convulsions during which, it kicked the screen'1 with sufficient violence to displace the fastenings. WEEKLY CROP REPORT The wheat heads are generally light owing both td, their being poorly fill ed and to a greater percent than usual qf light and shriveled grains accord ing to reports received by C. J. West, Agricultural Statistician, kom corre spondents thruout the state. With threshing only, just begun in a few parts of the state it is as yet too early to estimate closely the effect which the. apparently poor quality of wheat wu nave upon the yield, but such re ' ports as have been received are high ly unfavorable. The regular monthly report will 'be issued July 8th. It is estimated that, 65 percent of the filds of the state are affected by rust and that this has resulted in considerable damage. , ' Oats has been adversey effected by the; dry weather in many parts of the -stt&lf so that, the condition has general1 ly gone backward dtfflng the past week.

Both are colored and were attending a dance of their own race in the negro settlement in the south east part of the village; 1 Mclleane admits cutting his wife.but seejcs to mitigate the offense by claim ing that he was drunk at the time. Jealousy, however, appears to have been the basis of the .quarrel, Mc lleane taking his wife to task for the alleged acceptance, of the attentions of another maw. t S The husband further claims that the wife was thp first An Hraur the I f ,. Lin an attempt to cut him, and that he himself sustained a slight cut n the hand in taking the knife away from his wife.

A death occurred in Medina this week of unusual sadness, because of its removal from life of one who was just budding into manhood, and whose youthful habits and activities gave promise of a useful and successful future. , ' Kenneth DeVere Sedgwick, sot? of Albert L. and Charlotte Bloe Sedtr- Mrkk, died at the family home, , 324 -South Elmwood street, on Sunday niorning, July 3, at 11:05 o'clock: fol lowing a period of ill health of several lip's.

Kenneth received his educa tion in the Medina schools and would have graduated this year had not ill t t . i i neann prevented. During the pastorate of Rev. Collier in 1913, Ije united with the Methodist church, to which he gave generously of his talents as long as able. He was devoted to the study of music.and as a violinist had become remarkably proficient, being a prominent member of the Community orchestra, in whose tmalconcert of the season a few weeks ago he participated. At times he had been associateefwith Wie Boy Scouts and the Medina" band. He at one tjime in the employ of the A. I. Root Co; , ) The young man was of a gentle and lovable nature, considerate of his friends and loved ones, and popular with the people of the community. - Fune'ral services were held Tues day afternoon at 1 o'clock at the Methodist church, conducted by Rev.

There are 216,700 chickens in Me dina county o which thirty per cent, or 65,010 are culss. These cull hens will not lay for at least six months of the year. During this time they will consume at least sixty cents worth of feed. If all these cull hens were disposed of it would mean a sav ing of feed cost of $39,006 to the farm ers of the county. If these cull hens are sold in July or August instead of the good ones beisj; sold in the late fall, when th market is at the very bottom, as the general practice, it would mean is a gain of at least twenty eents per hen o - j r-- or $13,002 for the entire county. Thus it can be seen there is a possiblity of savins' a totaf of $52,008 providing ev- ery flock in the county is culled.

BELIEVE NEW METHOD WILL INCREASE YIELD! Medina Farmers Generally Ex pected to Follow in Foot steps of Pioneers in Progressive Step. At a meeting of the Montville town ship Farm Bureau, 'Monday night, June 27, forty farmers unanimously decided to do away with the many kinds' of wheat now raised and to all produce one pure bred variety. They decided upon the Trumbull, which is a strain selected from the Fultz Var iety. A canvass of the township will be made in the near future to determine the amount 'pi see'd needed for this fall. As has already been stated the Trum bull wheat is a selectiorf from the W Fultz. At Wster for a ten-year j few men wcre engaged, and the stage average Trumbull has yielded 38.3 f action so small, that the game was bushels or 2.3 bushels more than the j lacking in the power to thrill. How original Fultz. At the, Germaiitown j ever' witn t,le mns at hand, tha Station for an eight year average worL" was well done, and there was Trumbull has yielded 27.4 bushels, j ,T,uch of interest for any one who whereas the original Fultz yielded 24.0 ; tinew ,itt,e or nothing about actual or a gain for the TrunfUttll of 2.8 I warfare. bushels. At the Carpenter Station I Concerts were given throughout the of eight years work it -yielded 27.1 or ! da' bv the ladies' band of Barberton, a gain of .4 bushels; and at the Miami i numbering about forty pieces, and Station of 5 years work it yielded 36.4 their work was enjoyed by all. There or 4.1 bushels more than the Fultz. j was a ,arSe crowd of listeners at each It can therefore be seen that it Is ! possible to increase a yield Of wheat about two and one-half bushels' per acre by raising one of the pure strains of wheat. Thus if a farmer raises 10 acres of wheat each year it means 25 bushels more wheat, which will help materially to pay some of his taxes. The action of Montville farmers in deciding to standardize their "chief product is regarded a progressive step, and one that will be taken by; the other farmers of Uje county before long. WAGON CRUSHES BOY Dwight, 10-year-old son of Mr. and j Mrs. Harry Holcomb of York road', met with a serious injury Wednesday noon, which required his immediate removal to a hospital. While driving a load of milk to Me- j dina, he became overcome with the i heat and fell from the spat tn the I ground, the wheels of the w'ogon pass ing over his body and breaking three ribs. The lad was tajjen to St. Joseph's hospital, Lorain, where an X-ray" ex amination was to be made 6n Thurs day to determine as to whether there were any internalInjuries. Rev. R. K. Caulk of St. Paul's church left 'for Sf. Michaels, t Md., Wednesday, in response to a telegram which stated that his mother was ex pected to die. GREAT III B WOE 4TH But Attendance Was Only Half As Large As A' Year Ago. LEGION BOYS ALL- BUT FACED DEFICIT Excellent Program Faithfully Carried Out as Promised And Day Was Free From Disorder. The American Legion celebration at Chippewa Lake on the Fourth of July was carried out according to promise, and seemingly no pains had been spared b ythose who had the af fair in charge to make the occasion pne long to be remembered. Nature, too, contributed her full share for a one, and that was its financial respect. In this it was a failure, the receipts barely covering the expenses, altho the. exact result is not yet known. With the weather conditions so pro pitious, and the program of sports and entertainments so varied and attrac tive, it was confidently expected that the crowd of visitors would closely approach in number, if not equal the enormous crowd that gathered at the park on the F5urth last year, a con servative estimate of which was plac ed at not far from 18,000 persons, and which netted a profit to the American I Legion of several thousand dollars. I This year the crowd was not to ex j ceed half that of a year ago, neither j was there the same generosity mani- fested by the crowd In its expenditures ; with the result that at one time dur- ng the day it seemed that the big gala I occasion must end with a goodly-siz-; ed deficit. Monday was the hottest day thus I far this season, and it is not unlikely that the terrific heat may have had no small part in keeprng many persons i at home who otherwise would have been at the park, as well as acting as a depressant upon many who were there. This was indicated by the facr that hut comparatively few people were on the park grounds the first half of the day; indeed not before one or two o'clock, and a great many not coming until evening. The sham battle put on by veterans of the 37th Division from Cleveland, assisted by some Medina county vet erans, was begun at 4 o'clock in the" afternoon and lasted for about three quarters of an hour. So far as man euvers were concerned, the battle is said to have been.realistic. But so 0 tncir concerts, and the generous ap plause attested the pleasure of the audiences. Throughout the day many availed themselves of the opportunity of a ride in an aeroplane, the field being located at the southwest cqrner of the lake. 11 No aecidents were reported, al though four or five of the men who took part in the sham battle became temporarily overcome by the Heat and -equired medical attention. The grounds were well policed by a large- number of armed deputies, and I there was no drunkenness or rowdy- ism apparent 3;t any time. as might be expected in anv i crowd .there were pickpockets, i .- e- one man being relieved of his purse con- taming, $27. The thief was observed as he was getting awav. but a hie-h- powered caj; was awaiting hfcn, into which he leaned and sned awav Kf chase could bp taWn Raymond Emery,, a Medina boy, held the winning number on the Ford automobile, offered by the American Legion.
