Likewise when folks tire well match ed in athletic tests a whirlwind bout is the result In The Medina Sentinel contest the workers appear pretty well matched. Under the rules, and in conformity with postal laws, when a tie takes place a publication is bound to award an identical prize to those tying. Mrs. Levi Fleming demonstrates she is a real worker, by coming in for another $5 prize inside of two weeks, but she was tied in point of cash business by Mr. Ed. Loomis of Medina. The Sentinel offered $6 in cash to the contestant turning in the GREATEST AMOUNT of cash sub scription business for the week end ing Tuesday noon, Sept 13th. But it was a hair-raising finish to a hotly contested week. Mrs. I. H. Brotts, of Seville, missed the prize by just a few subscriptions, being but $4.50. behind the tied contestants. Running fourth and fifth were Mrs. John Kemp of Valley City, R. F. D. 1, and Mrs. Chas. Case, of Medina, R. F. D. 7. There was but or year ly subscription, a dinkly little ?1.50 difference between these two workers. Are these leaders well bunched to gether? We- would say uh-huh, and likewise yes. But there were others. Mrs. Catherine Carr, of Valley City, was right up in the running. and next to her ran Mrs. Harry Ken dall, of Seville, who had but a $1.60 lead over 'Miss Eva Tunquist of Hom erviUe. R. F. D. 2.

Officials of the Medina Mfg. Co. announce that they will launch upon the market about Oct 1 a new wash ing machine, designed by their en gineers and which has been in - the experimental stage for the past two years. According to the company their new product comprises several im portant improvements over other similar machines and has been pro nounced by experts to be the most serviceable and least expensive wash ing machine that has thus far been brought out. Several of these machines have re cently been completed, one of which the company states it will give away during the annual fair here next week. The machine is driven on ball and roller bearings, thus gaining a mini mum of friction, while a separate pully attachment renders it particu larly adaptable for use in farm homes. The favor with which the machine 1 has appealed to a number of dealers and agents who have examined it and witnessed it in operation and their expressed desire to handle the output, justifies the manufacturers in the belief that the ultimate pro duction will prove a great and grow ing adjunct to their present business. Notwithstanding the present indus trial depression in this and every other section of the country, the Me dina Mfg. Co. has been running right along, altho of course not with nor mal force. At the present time the force is about 30 per cent of normal. S. S. CONFERENCE IN MEDINA OCT. Each Township Planning to be Represented.

Asserting that the Constitution is the greatest governmental achievement since crea tion, and that he believed it to have been as much inspired as the bible.

TAT THE FOUNDRY Presence of Sheriff, Mayor and Deputies Forstall Outbreak. DISGRUNTLED GROUP BLAMED FOR TROUBLE Threats of Personal Violence Prevent Many Men From Returning to Work. That a riot was not enacted Tues day morning at the plant of the Henry Furnace and Foundry Co. is doubt less due to the presence there of Sheriff Bigelow, Deputy Hange, Mar shal White, Mayor Hartzog and oth ers who had been deputized for the occasion. The foundry company, which had shut down about two weeks ago when a strike of some of its men seemed imminent ,had expected to open up again Tuesday because of an expres sed desire of a number of the men to return to work. Before the shut down a group of the employees had become dissatisfied with the present superintendent, John Kemp, to whom they attributed cut in wages. When it became apparent to the company that there was likely to be a walk-out, they promptly shut down the plant without waiting for it. In doing so, however, the company announced to the men that they could come back to work if they were will ing to accept existing conditions at the plant. At the time and ever since it has been known to the company that many of the men out of work did not return because of fear of a certain group who precipitated the trouble and who, it is reported, have threatened vio lence to any of the men who retimed. Two or thre men, in defiance of m murn tQ wQrk and un(kr - of olence, appeaied t0 the company to afford them protection to and from their work. Particularly was this condition evidenced when on Monday Deputy Sheriff Hange was de tailed to escort Charles Dix and Wal ter Pinkerton from the plant to their homes. , Many of the former negro and Huu garian employees have informed the company they are anxious to go to work, but are in mortal fear of thi disgruntled gang who are responsible for the trouble. Two men whom the authorities be lieved to be members of the group who have been threatening the men who returned to work were called to his office by Sheriff Bigelow Monday nighe for a conference, but the men denied having tried to intimidate any one. It was on the strength of in formation that had come to them however, that the officers appeared at the foundry early Tuesday morning At that time Sheriff Bigelow prompt ly addressed the seventy-five or more men who had gathered, not only ap pealing to. their common sense, but emphatically warning them against in terfering with any one who desired to return to work, giving the latter as surance that they would be accorded the fullest protection, night and day should it become necessary. Despite this assurance, when the Sheriff had finished, the men quietly- slunk away, none of them possessed of sufficient courage to enter the plan and resume work. The company states that the atti tude of the men in remaining away from work is causing no annoyance to them so far as business is concern ed, as what little work the company has at this time can be easily hand led from their own factory. Never theless, they state, there is enough work to keep the plant going and they would be glad to give employment to such a number of men as they can use providing these men peaceably return to work. . About 18 ofi the former employees held a conference Tuesday afternoon and decided to return to work Wed nesday morning, regardless of any untoward conditions their actions might precipitate. Sheriff Bigelow received a tele phone call from Seville Tuesday even ing thai several employees on the road work there after receiving their pay were flourishing revolvers and making themselves generally odious. The Sheriff went to Seville, but the men had left before his arrival. NEAR DEATH IN CLEVELAND OF MARY H. McCABE Native of Medina and Known Here. Well The many friends here of Mary Hobart McCabe, where she was born and resided many years, will regret to learn of her death, which occurred at the East 79th street hospital, Cleveland, last Friday, Sept 9.

Funeral services were held at the residence of Wm. H. Hobart on Sun day afternoon, conducted by Rev. R. K. Caulk of St Paul's Episcopal church, and interment made in Spring Grove cemetery NABBED BY OFFICER, MAN CONFESSES THEFT The suspicious actions of a man around a box car near the Northern Ohio depot late Friday night attract ed the attention of Deputy Sheriff Hange, who accosted him and after gaining a confession that he had stolen a bicycle on the public square earlier in the evening, lodged him in jail. The man gave his name as Edward Tucker, 19, and the resi dence of his parents as Ravenna, O. Tucker had recently been working on the South Broadway improvement, but having tired of the job, he stated, had decided to go to Akron. For the last two or three nights he had been allowed to lodge in the fire sta tion in the town hall, thus Officer Hange recognized him when he met him in the railroad yard. A bicycle he had with him Tucker stated' was loaned to him by an em ployee of the Princess theater. When Hange suggested that Tucker's state ment would have to be verified, the latter winced and came clean. Tucker was arrested in Medina about two years ago on word receiv ed from Ravanna authorities that he had run away from home. LEACH-LINCOLN Miss Florence Fitch Leach, daugh ter of Mrs. Frank H.

BEACH GETS OPTJON ON CHIPPEWA LAKE That Chippewa Lake was likely to be disposed of soon by the Chip pewa Lake Community Company, was announced exclusively in the Sentinel about three weeks ago. That the transfer is about to take place seems probable since a meeting of the Community Co.'s stockholders last Friday night, when A. M. Beach, manager of Chippewa Lake park, was given an option upon the lake for $45,000. As was previously stated by the Sentinel it is the purpose to organ ize a stock company to handle the lake proposition and to carry out many enlargements and other changes on the lake grounds desired and needed. Mr. Beach holds a.24-year lease on the lake from the Community Com pany, and title to it is necessary be fore the new company can be or ganized. The Medina band will give a complimentary concert next Monday evening for the benefit of the clerks in business places.
