GIVEN HEAVY FINE
FOR SECOND OFFENSE
Homer Farmer Finds Liquor
Business Doesn't Pay.
Victor Crudis of Homer township
was arrested in Lodi last Saturday ev
ening by Sheriff Bigelow, and is now
in jail in default of payment of a fine
of $500 and. costs imposed by Justice
C. E. Knapp of Lodi for violation of
the Crabbe law.
Tipped off that a violation was ex
pected to be made, Sheriff Bigelow
lay in wait near a camp of foreigners
in the neighborhood of Eshelman's
Corners. When what was thought to
be the propitious time had arrived, he
invaded the cam pand found the
booze. The men in the camp testifi
ed that Crudis had brought it there
for sale, the price being set at $4.
This is Crudis' second offense. Al
so a farm hand working for Crudis
was prosecuted for a liquor violation
a few weeks ago, although Crudis
himself was not implicated.

DEATH OF L, C. BURNHAM
L. C. Burnham, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank T. Burnham of Medina, died at
Mt. Carmel hospital, Columbus, on
Friday of last week, at the age of 52
years. Mr. Burnham was born and
raised in Medina and well known to
most of our people here. He had re
sided in Columbus for several years.
Besides his parents there survive the
widow and two daughters, a brother,
Arthur Burnham and a sister, Mrs.
Arthur Van Epp, the latter two of
Medina.
Funeral services were held at the
home in Columbus on Monday of this
Week, and burial made in Green Lawn
cemetery, Columbus. ' .
Mr. Burnham was oast master of
Magnolia lodge of Masons, Columbus,
a 32d degree member of the Scottish
Rite, past patron of Crown Chapter
Eastern Star, and past commodore of
the Buckeye Lake Yacht club. He
had been associated with the Colum
bus Mill and Supply Co., for 24 years.
LOCAL TALENT RECITAL
Not a large, but an appreciative au
dience greeted Leo and Regina Bar
tunek in their organ and voice recital
given at the Methodist church Tues
day evening. These two talented
young people were assisted by Miss
Morlsc ran A. f J1t TJT

presented and Medina people will
gladly hear her often.
Miss Bartunek's best number was
the "Ave Maria" by Bach-Gounod, in
which she was accompanied by her
brother on the piano. The orsran
playing by Mr. Bartunek evidenced
decided ability in the use of that in
strument, although his friends would
have welcomed a group of pianonum-
berg, his work with the latter instru
ment beinar well known. H5
work was shown in the selections
"Christmas in Sicily" and "Melanchol-
ique," two new organ pieces of ex
ceptional beauty. The whole pro
gram was of a high order.
PRIMARY ELEC

This Time.
SAME
OFFICIALS
WANT JOBS AGAIN
Montville Township to Hold a
Special Election for
Bond Issue on
Monday.
lext Tuesday, Aug. 9, will be held
the primary elections in Medina coun
ty and which, as usual, will probably
be productive of about as much excite
ment as might be found at midnight
in Windfall.
In Medina there will be only the
Republican ticket to be voted, and
even that is incomplete, no names ap
pearing for marshal .assessor or
board of public affairs. The pleasure
of local Democrats will be confined
for the most part to looking on.
Both parties have tickets in the
field in Wadsworth, although the
Democratic ticket is incomplete, there
being no candidates for village
clerk, treasurer, marshal or assessor.
A special election will be held in
Montville township next Monday to
determine the question of a bond is
sue for $10,000 for a school building.
The township favors a school building
as wa sevidenced at a previous elec
tion for a bond issue, which carried
about two to one. But it was found
that the amount of the issue was de
cidedly inadequate, hence the coming
election for another issue.
The Republican ticket in Medina
village is as follows:
Mayor H. H. Hartzog; Clerk W.
P. Ainsworth; Treasurer F. P. Hard
ing; Council F. P. Bagley, L. W.
Bfyden, Hobart Edwards, C. M. Fenn.

BARGAIN DAY NO. 4
PROVES A SUCCESS
Satisfactory Sales, But Not So
Many Here.
Monday was "bargain day" in Me
dina ,the fourth of a series being held
by the Medina Advertising club com
posed of sixty or more merchants,and
like the previous three sales days
proved successful.
It is generally agreed that there
were not quite as many visitors to
town as on some of the other days,
but those who came were liberal in
their purchases and it seems to be the
prevailing opinion thatthe trade was
reasonably well divided, and so far
as is known the merchants are well
satisfied with the result of the day.
The next "bargain day" will be
held on Monday, Sept. 5.
MRS. ELIZABETH HAUTER
PASSED AWAY TUESDAY
Mrs. Elizabeth Hauler, 72, widow
of the late William Hauter, died
Tuesday evening of this week at the
home of her son, Oscar H. Rothaker,
631 South Court street. Funeral
services will be held from the home
Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, and
interment made in Spring Grove
cemetery. The deceased was a na
tive of Switzerland, but had resided
in this country for more than 40
years. She is survived by two sons
and a daughter.
Charles Schwartz, residing near
Grafton, had both legs so severly cut
by the blades of a mowing machine
that it is feared amputation will be
come necessary.
