ers that ever since her marriage in
Hastings, Mich., on Dec. 8, 1917, her
husband has grossly neglected her
in tailing to provide the necessaries
of lue, and that his neglect and abuse
has likewise been visited upon their
minor child. But the crowning

W. E. Case of Akron, formerly of
Medina, met with an accident last
Friday night in which he nearly lost
his life, by being run down by an
automobile on the Cuyahoga street
hill in Akron.
Case and his son, Bryan Case, had
stopped to change a tire on their au
tomobile. The elder Case was stand
ing at the rear of his machine when
another car, driven by W. H. Still
wen, pi cuyahoga rails, ran mt
him. He was pinned between the
two machines.
Mr. Case was rushed to the City
hospital where- examination revealed
internal injuries and severe bruises
and lacerations of the scalp. His.
condition soor after being removed
-to the hospital was reported as criti
cal, but Word has since been received
that slight improvement is noted and
that Mr. Case will probably recover.
The sixty-first marriage anniver
sary of Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Waltz,
Lafayette road and Elmwood street,
will be celebrated on Friday of this
week, Dec. 30, by a reception given

in the afternoon from 2 to 6 o'clock,
to which all friends are invited. Par

Women's Relief Corps. Mr. Waltz

companion is 88. Both enjoy fairly
good health notwithstanding their ad
vanced age. The Sentinel congratu

James Nelson, colored, committed to
jail about a month ago in default of
payment of a fine of $300 and costs
imposed by Justice W. P. Ainsworth
lor uiegai possession ot booze, was
liberated Saturday morn'.ng by an or
der of County Auditor Washburn. "Si
multaneously Mavor Hartzog ordered
Nelson to leave town immediately.
Nelson's similarity of features to those
of a crook sought by Cleveland police,
a picture of whom is in possession of
Sheriff Bigelow, prompted the latter
to communicate the fact to the city
police department, and two detect.ves
were sent here Friday to give Nelson
the "once over," but he proved to be
the wrong man. Nelson was arrested
on Bronson street, near the foundry,
in possession of about a quart and a
half of whisky. His release was con
sidered the cheapest way out for the
Elmer Cook of Seville was arrested
there at 12 o'clock Wednesday night
by Sheriff Bigelow, charged with
stealing tires from various machines.
He will probably be given a hearing
The family circle of Henry Harris,
colored, of Bronson street, is again
complete. Ruptured a few weeks ago
when Mrs. Harris eloped with John
Washington, also colored and a board
er in the Harris household, it has
again assumed its original form, the
errant help-meet having- returned and.
presumably, become once more a par
ticipant in the Harris bed and board.
Henry Harris loves his wife. He
says so. And that is why, ever since
his wife deserted him, he has left no
stone unturned to find her and, if pos
sible, prevail upon her to return to
him. The first indication of Success
developed about two weeks ago, when
he learned from a fellow Ethiopian
that Mrs. Harr s and Washington were
in Mansfield, living there as man and
wife. A description of the two were
sent to the Mansfield police depart
ment by Sheriff B gelow, with the re
quest that a search be made for them.
Nothing coming from this, the un
daunted husband took the matter into
his own hands, and "then the fun be
gan." Harris says he went to Mansfield on
Monday of last week, visited the po
lice department and prevailed upon the
chief to detail an officer to accompany
him in a search for the missing couple.
Before starting out, however, Harris
says the officer took him into a room
where was displayed guns of every
description and uniforms of all s'zes.
and told him to hold up his hand.
"Ah done hoi' 'em up alright," says
Harris, "but suah wond'd whether I
had got into a police station aw ah
den o' thieves." Harris' fears were
allayed when he was informed by the
officer that he had just been depu
tized, and that he was to don a uni
form and select the biggest gun Ik
could find.

son of Cleveland delivered an eloquent
and convincing address in the interest

As the two walked out of the sta
tion and circulated about the main
streets, Harris admits it was the proud
est hour of his life. They had
proceeded far when Harris saw
wife and Washington emerging from
a movie theater. Harris and the of-
ficer followed them to their apart-
ments. A rap on the door brought
Mrs. Harris to the door.. When asK
ed if she was Mrs. "Washington," she
replied that she was She called to her
"husband," who when he saw the po
liceman, reached for a gun. The of
ficer was too quick for him and cov
ered h m with his revolver, Harris
simultaneously stepping forward and
placing the muzzle of his weighty
weapon under .Washington's nose,
"Ah wanted to kill him," says Harris,
"bijt jus' couldn't mak up mah min'
to," not knowing until late that the
officer had carefully removed thfl load
from his gun before leaving the police
Neither h's wife nor Washington
recognized Harris until they were on
their way to the station in the "black
Maria," when he says the woman gave
him a worse tongue-lashing than he
ever got from her before. Washington
and the Harris woman were locked up
for the night and Tuesday morning
were fined $25 and costs and ordered
to leave the city immediately. The
fines and cpsts were pa d by Wash
ington and Mrs. Harris reluctantly
accompanied her husband back to Me
dina. Harris says he will never forget his
wonderful experience, and it is prob
able that all future episodes in his
lif he will date from the one supreme
hour when he was clothed in full
police regalia and armament and
technically at least a full fledged guard
ian of a great city.

Fred P. Clark, born and reared in
Medina, and where he spent the great
er part of his life, died Monday morn
ing of this week at his late home,
816 Wall street, Akron, following a
j brief Illness. Mr. Clark suffered a
