Quite a nuuiberofvisitoiscamointown on their wheels Sunday, Uut had to take Uw train for home. .Rev. W. T. Barnes, of New Castle, Pa., tuts been called to preacii ot the Disciple church in this place. One hundred and fifty tickets were sold for tne excursion to (Cleveland over the Big Four last Monday. About all of the pole3 have been placed in position to receive the wires to be used for electric light purposes. The members of the fire deparment re sponded promptly to the eall to go to Spencer, Thursday evening. A committee from the electric line at Mansfield arrived in town Tuesday morn ing to go over the Penfield.andLaG range route. It is an uncommon occurrence for the lino and costs assessed against an indi vidual in court to foe paid by private subscription. On account of tl heavy fall of rain the excavating ia tii reserroir for the electric light plant has been abandoned for a few days. The engineers on tlie railways enter- J lag this place use the steam -whistles al together too freely for the comfort of the people in the town. Upon an examination it is .ascertained that there is a statutory provision re quiring streets to be paved inside ot cor porate lines where electric car lines pass. One 'hundred and eighty-two tickets sold to Cleveland this morning. The train contained twelve coaches cud every seat ww taken before the train arrived here. A letter has been received frwu the electric railway men at Mansfield which stated that a delay had been canned in proceedings by some unexpected litiga tion. P. B. Warwick will be electrician at the electric light plant, C. N. Cunning ham business manager, and James Cur tiss will hav charge of the work around town. The council .convened in adjourned session Monday evening and passed an ordinance compelling the Big Four Co. to place electric lights at the five street crossings. A party of young people held a picnic in Cole's grove, northwest of town, Fri day evening. The vehicle that conveyed the jolly crowd was labeled with placards advertising different branches of trade. A. P. Dimock called and stated that R. E. Baird did not request his son to dis continue practicing on the horn the evening the trouble arose, but had at another time requested him not to play. The W. & L. E. Ry. Company has en tered into a contract with the Valley Ry. Company for an Interchange of traffic from Valley Junctlonto Cleveland. This being the case, the branch from here to Cleveland will not bo constructed right away. 'jzzzzzzzzzzzzzzztzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz:zz The town of Spencer was visited by fire Thursday evening. See full report of it in the correspondence from that place on the first page. It has not been eighteen months yet since their large and com modious school house was entirely con sumed by fire. A brakeinan was killed yesterday on tho W. & L. K. near Hartland by being knocked down while passing under a bridge while walking on ton of tho train. His name is Bly and ho is from Canton. It was his first trip over tho road and proved to be the last one. A motion for a tiew trial for J. I). Gawn was overruled by Judge Nye, Tuesday, and Gawn was sentenced to serve eighteen months in tho penitent iary. He was found guilty of setting fire to, ami burning a school house irt district number six, in Amherst town ship, on tho night of October 10, IS'Jo. R. H. Baird appeared in Justice Perk iu's court and paid the assessed value of the horn, which was $8, and the costs, which were $i. The action was then dis missed. The horn was tho property of the M. E. Chnrch and had been used a number of wars. The committee were J. V. Houghton, S. E. Wilcox and Chas. Mason. Baird was fully re-imbursed for the amount he phid for the lmru by the business men. Suicide of H. WHilner of Lodi There appears to be some suspicion that tho telegraph operator at Lodi did not commit suicide, but was put out of the way by parties interested in an in heritance to tho amount $fi,000 that the deceased was soon to come iu possession of. The following is taken from the Lodi Review: An examination of the room revealed tho fact that Herman had eaten his lunch as urctal and apparently up to this time performed the duties of t5io ofiice punct ually. He was suspended by the neck by n pair of white overalls, -attached to the lattice above the doorway. Within easy rea&i was a tablo on oao hand and a desk on the other, neither showing any evidence that he madi the slightest struggle to save himself, even had he cliacged his purpose and tried to do so. These indications of passiviness, to gether with the fact tint ho might also easily have caught the top of the door as a means of rescue, have occasioned a theory that ho may have been a victim of foal,play. If it was a case of suicide it was 'Certainly a case of surprising self control and a determination on his part to 'die. On the whole, ct is a mysterious affafc, the incidents of -which we shall proliably never know. Jkfinoi'liil to the Pioneer Wnmcii. Tim memorial to the pioneer women of the Western Resene -will contain 230 sketches of about four pages each, from the pens of as many writers, on tiie earlient pioneer women in .nil townships of the Western Reserve.
