nic at Meyer's lake. The question of

ing. Only a half day will be lost by
reason that It is always closed on Sat
urday afternoons anyway. "I am In
favor of shutting the building for the
day," said Commissioner McDonald,
of Alliance, Thursday morning. "I do
not see how such a resolution would
work any hardship upon people of the
county who have business to trans
act In the structure. I do not know,
however, what opinions aro held by
Commissioners Hay and Burnhelmer."

Cheyenne Canon, Col., Aug 17.
After enjoying the trip to the prairies
it is no unwelcome diversion to rest
among the Rocky wonders, climb to
dizzy heights, drink the panacea of re
storing health amid the regions of
perpetual snow, and write your postal
card out In a snow storm in August,
as wo did on Mt. McClellan. Where I
now sit the inspired artist has en
deavored to explain the majesty of
the rocks, laugh of the rill, and
beauty of the falls, and yet pen or
brush have failed so utterly to give
any idea of what sights can be seen;
that my meager effort shall lend Its
energy to induce others to come and
see tho undescribable Rocky scenery.
This morning we ride on a' tally-ho,
run, walk, or climb, singing tsuch
couplets as "Holy, Holy! Lord God
Almighty," "Rocks and Rills and All
Creation Praise God's Name Forever
More," "My Country," etc. And now
rest at Brinn's Inn, and in less
majestio regions than Inspiration
Point or Seven Falls we laugh when
our hand moves and writes.
At Helen Hunt Falls,
God help me to think some thought
And say some word sublime
For'Mn this stream and rocks galore
Thy handiwork doth shine.
Tls great to sit at "Helen Hunt1''
The Falls all men adore,
And feel its spray fall on your face
Soft as a mother's lore.
How sweet to think our souls may
Besides God's crystal streams,
And sit down beside the Rock
Thar rich in mercy gleams.
God wo would write some useful line,
Some spray of heaven's lore
To fall from hearts In smiles
On those who clamber near our shore.
But already "All aboard" greets our
cars, and aa we pity the hores. we
race with a Kansas attorney across
to the divide on foot, where at an
elevation of over 9,000 feet, we rest
at Mrs. Captain Jack Ward's cabin,
a gold prospector just think how a
woman can live and be perfectly
happy If she chooses but we did
not win the race with the Kansas at
torney. Perhaps this was due to his
having learned to scheme while run
ning for Congress, for by looking
ahead, Kansas cut through a gulch
and gained one-fourth of a mile on
Ohio, so while defeated, we sang out,
Here's to Kansas, she won the race,
though we very much wish to be In
her place. The mountains are beau
tiful with flowers at this season. Ex
cursion trains are run up the Colorado
Midland for gathering them, and who
can afford to miss the sight and fra
grance of the armfulls of Columbine
and other mountain flowers brought
by the tourists on their return.
Expenses are not necessarily high.
We have a fine room at'Manalean at
a moderate rate and more than we
can eat at 25c a meal.
Here the wealthy and weary alike
forget their burdens whllt they drink
from soda and iron fountains and
nature's bower while they discuss the
greatness of their Maker.
At the close of day wo are sad
only In this all lovers of nature in
our dear home city have not been
with us in our rambles.
From one who heartily believes
that lovo of country and duty to kin
compels you to travel or commit a
sin. MRS. A. J. DE HOFF,
Gallon Ell Boblltt of Sunbury ham
let, who died at the age of 96, left a
remarkable line of 220 living defend

Subject Has Been Going
.About Streets Freely
Thought to Have Con
tracted the Disease
While Serving in the
Philippines Will be
Kept Under Guard.
Washington, Aug. 23. A well de
veloped case of leprosy has been dis
covered in a lodging house on Penn
sylvania avenue, conducted as a mis
sion by the Salvation Army and
within two squares of the capltol. The
subject, John R. Early, came to Wash
ington six days ago from Lynn, N. C,
and had gone freely about the capltol,
eating at various restaurants, ming
ling with people, and using the street
cars. The case was discovered by a
physician called to attend Early for
some minor ailment. He observed
three suspicious looking white spots
on the patient's forehead and ques
tioned him. Closer inspection con
vinced the physician who promptly
telephoned the health authorities of
the District of Columbia. An ambu
lance responded and carried Early to
an isolated quarter of the district
where a closer inspection was made.
The health department of Washing
ton have officially pronounced the
case one of leprosy. The patient is
about 35 years old, has a wife and
child in Lynn, N. C, with whom he
lived until he came to Washington
nearly a week ago. He had no
knowledge of the serious character of
the disease until informed by the phy-'
sician. He says the first symptoms
appeared about eighteen months ago.
He believes he contracted the disease
while serving as a soldier in the
Philippines. He was a private in the
fifth regiment of the New York vol
unteers, which served in the provi
sional army In the Philippines. He
enlisted in that regiment at Platts
burg barracks. Slnco he quit the ser
vice Early has worked In New York
and other, cities at clerical work and
Is a member it the Salvation Army,
having seen service in the organiza
tion in New York city.
Early has been placed in a tent es
pecially erected for his isolation In
the rear of the Bmall police quaran
tine station near the district jail on
the bank of the eastern branch of
the Potomac. He will be kept there
under guard until cold weather comes
when if necessary a house will be
built to make him more comfortable.
He has been supplied with bed clothes
and clothing and utensils necessary
for living. His food ia carried to
him and poured into vessels supplied
for his personal use. He does his
own washing. The room from which
he was taken was securely locked as
soon as the discovery was first made
and has been fumigated under direc
tion of the health department.
Every place in which he is known
to have been has been fumigated.
Even street cars in which he rode
have been disinfected. Early came to
Washington to personally urge a
claim for a pension for himself as a
former soldier and visited the pension
office several times. The authorities
In North Carolina have been notified
of the case and requested to conduct
an Investigation to determine the
movements of Early In and around
Lynn and -to take precautions for the
prompt apprehension of any suspected
cases that may arise from contact
with him.
A number of persons visited the lo
cality where Early Is Isolated today
and newspaper men talked with him.
He appeared remarkably cheerful un
der all the circumstances. He asked
the health department to keep from
his wife information as to the char
acter of his illness. This being im
possible he expressed a desire to re
turn to his wife and child to be per
mitted to die near them if it would
not subject them to the disease. "If
this is not possible then I am per
fectly willing to remain right here
or anywhere else the authorities may
say until the end comes," said he.

Chicago, Aug. 23, George W. Fitz
gerald was arrested late last night at
his home on a charge of stealing $173,-
000 from the Chicago sub-treasury.
The arrest, It Is believed, solves tho
great sub-treasury robbery, which for
nearly two years has mystified the
keenest detectives of the government
secret service.
Tho warrant was sworn out at mid
night before Judge Arthur H. Chet
laln, by Herbert F. Young general
manager of the Young Secret Service
company. The detective manager act
ed under instructions from Assistant
Treasurer William Roldenwelck, in
charge of tho Chicago sub-treasury.
Fitzgerald was bundled Into an auto
mobile and taken to the office of the
Young Secret Service company. There
he was sweated for two hours. He
was taken to the county Jail at 2
o'clock this morning. He was turned
over to the federal authorities today.
Oil Case to be Carried
to the United States
Supreme Court
Chicago, Aug. 23. If the plans of
the government carry the Standard Oil
case will be carried to the United
States supreme court by a "short cut''
method. This is revealed in an ob
scure paragraph of the petition filed
with the United States court of appeals
for a re-hearlng of the reversal of
the $29,240,000 fine.
Judges Grosscup, Seaman and Bak
er are asked by Attorney General
Bonaparte to certify the entire pro
ceedings to the supreme court. Here
tofore it has been generally supposed
the only method by which the depart
ment of justice could get a hearing
of the oil case before the highest
tribunal was through a petition for
a writ of certiorari. That proceeding
would mean a delay until the inter
mediate court had disposed of the re
hearing plea.
The government, however, seeks to
facilitate matters through an imme
diate certification of the case to the
supreme court. It is pointed out to
the judges of the court of appeals
that their opinion leaves in doubt the
question of the defendant's "guilty
knowledge." They are told that the
statute provides that they may at
any time certify to the supreme court
any questions or propositions of law
concerning which they desire con
In view of the fact that the question
of the defendant company's "guilty
knowledge" is the most important
point involved In the reversal of Judge
Landls, the certification of the propo
sition practically would amount to
an appeal of the entire case.
The petition dwelling on this feat
ure, adds the question involved is
vital to shippers and railroads.
"Suits are now pending In practi
cally every circuit court of the United
States," says the government lawyers,
"and this is a point upon which emi
nent judges differ. In fact, it is a
question expressly left open for the
supreme court, under these circum
stances we respectfully suggest that
this court may certify this question to
the supremo court to the end that a
final decision of this important ques
tion may be obtained."
Highland Park, Aug 23. The ten
days' encampment for the worship of
God came to a close on Sunday night,
amidst scenes of great interest and
profit. All the services of the past
ten days have been leading up to this
last Sabbath as a climax, and a great
amount of spiritual power was mani
fest as a result. An immense throng
of people was present, and thousands
wero touched by the gospel messages.
From early morning to late at night
the grove resounded with song and
praise. The preaching of Rev. W. H.
Fouke in the morning and afternoon
was a means of great power upon his
hearers. Both messages were eloquent
and full of spiritual fervor. This man
of God has again won his way into the
hearts of the attendants of the High
land Park meeting.
The morning prayer service was led
by Rev. H D. Shultz, of Cleveland. It
was a fitting beglning for the day. At
9 a. m., Rev. J. A. Grimm conducted a
service of prayer and song and tes
timony. The Sunday school, Rev. P.
E. Smoke, superintendent, was very
interesting, more than a thousand peo
ple being present. At 6:30 Rev. Wil
liam Davis conducted a Young People's
service on the hillside, and in the
evening Rev. M. M. Rader, of Canton,
preached the closing sermon. A fellow
ship meeting followed, and farewells
were iiald until next August. Thus
came the close of the meeting.
The annual meeting of the Board of
Directors was held on Saturday, and
elected the following officers: Presi
dent. Rev. J. A. Grimm, of Freeburg;
vice president, Rev. M. M. Rader, of
Canton: secretary, Rev. W. S. Harp
ster, pf Columbus; treasurer, Rev. G.
W. Brown, of Falrhope.
Sisters Solicit a Fruit Shower.
Every good housewife in Canton
will do well to remember the Mercy
hospital during Oio canning season
by putting up a few extra jars for
tho sick.
The sisters are not in a position
at present to do anything in this
line on account of their small quar
ters and depend upon tho charity or
the people wnom they trust will re
spond generously.
Any donations however small will
be most gratefully accepted and may
be taken to tho hospital at any time.
While on Way to Church
Last Evening Did
Mrs. E. Genet
Masslllon, Ohio, August 24. Whllo
on her way to attend the ev
ening services at the Faith Lutheran
chapel, on South Grant street, about 7
o'clock last evening, Mrs. E. Genet, of
503 North Mill street, dropped dead
on West Main street. A physician was
immediately summoned while she was
taken by friends Into a residence
nearby. Upon the physician's arrival
it was found that death had been In
stantaneous, due to heart trouble.
Gorden & Holllnger's ambulance was
called and the remains were taken to
tho home of the deceased on North
Mill street.
Mrs. Genet had been in the best of
health all day and upon feeling no
111 effects decided to go over to tho
West Side church. She was sixty-six
years old and is survived by several
children. Late last evening the fu
neral arrangements had not been
Thought to Have Been Located at Orr
ville Officers and Owner to
C. J. Mllner's horse and buggy,
stolen from a hitching post in front of
David Harris' saloon, corner of Third
and Court streets, last Thursday ev
ing, after it had been hired by Mich
ael J. Bolar, was found Sunday night
In Orrvllle, where a man was trying
to dispose of It. The man who stole
It had the horse in the stables con
nected with the Rest house at that
place and the low price which he of
fered It at led the proprietor of the
stable to surmise that It was stolen.
The description of the horse and run
about was sent to this city and Mll
ner was satisfied that it was his out
fit. He reported the matter to the
police and late Sunday evening Chief
Smith prepared an affidavit and placed
it in the hands of Captain Patterson,
who accompanied Milner to Orrvllle.
Mllner asked that the man be arrested
and held until the arrival of Captain
Patterson, but he did not know that
this was done, as the man was not
present when the message was sent to
this city. This Is the second time that
this horse .has been stolen from tho
local llverman.
