The case is an outgrowth of an au to collision,. on the center road east of Brunswick on July 3, when machines driven by Krussel and Spector came together, both cars being put out of commission and the occupants slight ly injured. Almost simultaneous with the filing of the suit against Krussel, the tat ter's wife brought action in the Cleve land courts against Spector for $25, 000 damages for alleged injuries sus tained at the time of the collision, in which she states that Specter's fiancee-was driving the Spector car, her inexperience causing her to become confused and to turn the car into the path of Krussel's car. Spector and his lady friend, Lily Warhof tf Cleve land, also a sister, Eva Spector, who were the occupants of Spector's car, deny that Miss Warhoff was driving. They testified that Krussel was driv ing at a reckless rate of speed and made no attempt to turn out until wihln a few feet of Spector's car. The Specors were represented by F. W. Woods and Krussel by Attor ney Miller of Cleveland. ELECTION K IN WADSWORTH Two Republican Candidates Claim the Nomination for Mayor. MANY MEDINA VOTERS BALLOT FOR WOMEN Local, Democrats Drift in at Polls During Day in At tempt to Make Showing. The biennial August farce, or more commonly known as the municipal primary election, as predicted, passed off in Medina with all the solemn still ness of a summer night. The four election booths gave out sepulchral tones for most of the day, excepting at the remote intervals when the few Stalwarts "invaded to avail thmselves of their elective rights, or the explos ion of a match betokened the exting uishment of the pipe of a judge or clerk. But in Wadsworth enough noise and excitement prevailed, and does yet, ti offset the painful lack of sound and fury at home. The trouble came through the con test for the mayoralty. The present incumbent, F. W. Boyer, Republican, had as a party opponent for the nomi nation J. C. Whitlam. The friends oi both men Were active in their be half all day. When the ballots were counted, the summary sheets disclos ed a Victory for Whitlam by a differ ence of 14 votes. Not satisfied with the count, Boyer retains Attorney Frank Woods to rep resent his interests before the election board at Medina and Whitlam follows suit with Attorney Sadler of Wads worth. When the election board counted arid tallied the 'ballots Wednesday morning they found a shortage of sev en ballots in Boyer's favor and other discrepancies that would give the elec tion to Boyer by two votes. The dif ference arose oyer the votes in Pre-1 cinct E. At first the board of elections ex pressed the opinon that they had no choice in the matter but to-decide ac cording to their finding. 'But when they expressed this opinion it called forth all the latent energy that At torney Sadler could conjure ,in which he declared that the board had no right to determine the validity of cer tain ballots where there was a clear ly drawn issue to the question. At this juncture the board asked the attorneys to withdraw while the form er discussed the matter in executive session, in which Prosecutor Seymour participated. Thursday morning it was decided by the board to refer the case ,to the De partment of State for adjudication.

The annual seven-day session of Redpath Chautauqus opens tomor row, Friday, August 12, In Medina at the high school grounds for its program of varied and excellent fea tures in music, comedy, magic, opera, lecture and science which offers the best in education and inspiration.

Tickets are on sale in the stores and can be secured at the ds from the committee cheaper from the ticket office. Mansfield, Bucyrus and Gallon pa trons of the seven-day Redpath Chau tauqua are enthusiastic over this sea son's; program as offering a balanced course with many features. New York casts are offered in the opera Pinafore and in the comedy "Nothing But the Truth." 'Miss Eleanor Board man, widely photographed Eastman Kodak girl, has the lead in the com edy which is said to be the cleanest, funniest and most wholesome three act laugh that Broadway has produc ed in many seasons. But the old and ever popular light opera "Pinafore," Redpath is present ing a New York cast of 22 people with special scenery, an orchestra and elab oral costuming. The music and the f clevr-xon;edy of this satire .on the English navy is always good, and pa trons will want to see it Tuesday. On the opening night Edwin Whit ney, a versatile entertainer and reader from Boston and a previous visitor in Medina, will read the comedy so full of optimism and fun, "In Walked Jimmie." Mf. Whitney has read the "Fortune Hunter" 'and "Turn to the Right" in past seasons and is now scoring successes with this play with 12 characters in whose presentation and impersonation he uses no scenery or costumes.

Music lovers of Medina will have many treats during the week, both of instrumental and vocal programs and the closing number by the Proctor Stolofsky Concert Company is said by some Ohio newspaper critics to be worth the price of the season picket.

LIGHTNING STUNNED TWO GRANGER MEN Storm the Most Widespread and Devasting that Has Visited Medina in Years. -One of the most violent storms that has invaded this region in a long time passed over the northeastern half of Medina county last Saturday night about 5:30 o'clock, grazing Medina vil lage ,and carrying destruction in its wake. The storm appears to have been far reaching in its scope, devastating ter ritory for miles beyond Cleveland along the lake shore. Much damage was reported in the vicinity of Strongsville, and approach ing this way it blew a barn off its foundation on the Smith farm east of Stony hill; uprooted or otherwise de stroyed nearly a thousand trees in the maple grove of Irwin Wilkinson in Hinckley; upset tombstones and broke down trees in the cemetery at Ben nett's Corners, and unroofed the store. In Brunswick the big orchard of Richard Fritz was nearly destroyed, besides several large trees in the front yard were blown down. The top of the barn on Calvin Brant's farm was displaced, and on the farm of Georg. Strong the shingles were torn from the house , several trees uprooted, and a large shed blown several feet from its foundation. At Remsen's Corners the barn of Seth Dean was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. In Granger lightning struck the barn of L. H. Renner, knocking down Mr. Renner and Harry, also several cows. Neither of the Renners was injured, nor the barn destroyed. In Medina from the covered bridge east for a couple of miles no less than thirty-seven telephone poles on the Ohio State Telephone Co.s line were, snapped off like pipe stems, delaying service in that direction until tlie following day, when a temporary cable was placed in operation. The storm was made up of the com bined elements of wind .rain and elec tricity, during the height of which the barn of Homer Watkins, about sixty rods west of Fenn's Corners, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. The building was a new one and the mow filled with hay which also was consumed. The stables not having been finished the live stock were not in the barn at the time. The Medina fire department responded wit its chemical apparatus, but arrived too late to be of any service other than protecting the dwelling and other farm buildings from the burning barn. A huge stack of straw not far from the banuwas destroyed. The barn was insured. GORED BY BULL Bert Roth, residing about a mile south of Sharon Center, was attack ed by one of his bulls last Friday, the animal goring one of Roth's arms and breaking his shoulder in two places. His condition is reported as improv ing. wm SWIPED By BAD STORM FIREMEN'S DAY WEDNESDAY Departments From Cities Com ing.

Wise of the Medina de partment is busy rounding things up for the big event, and predicts the most successful convention held in some time.

GROWING MILK SURPLUS TO BRING LOWER PRICE Present indication's are that there will be a surplus of milk in the Cleve land territory for many months to come. However, daily we hear of producers who are increasing their herd. Everv irfcrease in the nnmW of cows producing milk for this mar ket will undoubtedly result in a cor responding decrease in the price of milk . Surplus during 1922 will be based in the average shipments during the last six months of 1921. If however, the basic milk thus determined exceeds the demand for whole milk the basic amount will be cut to meet the de mands. Thus if in March, 1922, the demand is only equal to 80 per cent, of the basic milk as fixed by the ship ments for the six months, then each shipper will be allowed only 80 per cent of the basic amount. August prices for milk all over the country are practically the same as July. ' The future prices depend ab solutely on producton and consump tion. Producers declare that production will never become profitable until a large per cent, of the farmers know, more about the cost "of production. That there is a very great need for! cow-testing associations n Ohio, near ly every herd having some cows pro ducing at a loss. '
