Objects To Tobacco.
Editor News-Herald I am sur
prised that a citizen of Columbus
would come to Hlllsboro seeking Infor
mation relative to the sin of selling
tobacco. If he would attend church
where he ought to learn our duty with
reference to such sins, I am sure he
would go away without the informa
tion desired as our pulpits are silent.
It Is better to preach against the Jews.
They never attend.
I have found it very hard to con
vince the man that has the appetite
that it is a sin to use tobacco and it is
equally as hard to convince the man
that ltls wrong to sell it when there
Is a dollar in it
It would almost require the quake
and thunder and smoke and flame of
Sinai to convince them of the sin
against God and the human race by
the tobacco business.
Warren Houseman, of near the
Point, was arrested Monday, charged
with maliciously cutting the belts on
the threshing outfit of Harry Kneisley.
Houseman was taken to Balnbridge
and confessed that he committed the
offense. The value of the belts cut
is estimated at from $75 to 8100.
Kneisley and Houseman are rival
threshing machine men. The Knels
ley outfit was on the farm of the Free
Bros., between the Point and Baln
bridge, having made the set Saturday
and expecting to begin threshing
When the men went to the machine
Monday morning they found all the
belts badly cut. A telephone call was
sent in for the Martinsville blood
hounds,, and they were brought to the
scene and put on the trail. They went
directly to the home of Houseman
near Cold Spring.
When Houseman confessed to the
offense the only explanation he gave
of his act was that it was "simply
At the perllmlnary hearing House
man was bound over to the grand jury
and his bond fixed at $2500. This he
was unable to give and he was taken
to Chllllcothe and placed in jail.
Until this trouble Houseman had
always born a good reputation in the
community and his parents are highly
respected. The people of that neigh
borhood have a great deal of sympathy
for him and think that he must have
been temporarily unbalanced when he
committed the crime. Jealousy of
Kneisley as a business rival is thought
by some to have been the cause of the

- All Sorts Defeat Normals.
The Hlllsboro All Sorts played a
team from the Normal School Tuesday
afternoon at the Fair Ground, the All
Sorts winning by the- score of 10 to 5.
"Mickey" Carroll was on the mound
for the All Sorts and the Normal Boys
dould not touch his slants, speed and
curves. Only four hits were made oil
him, three of them being mixed with
three errors in the sixth inning being
good for four runs. "Mickey" did not
allow a hit until the sixth inning.
Emery caught him.
Bunn and Hughes were the battery
for the Normal School.
The All Sorts think they have some
team and are looking for games. Any
one desiring to book this fast aggre
gation will address Trimming Depart

think they can beat all comers with
their "trimming battery," banking
heavily on the fear that their elon

Five new cases were filed In the
Common Pleas Court during the past
John Abe Moberly against Sarah A.
Gossett et al is a suit for the partition
of 89 acres of land In Clay township.
There are slxtv-two defendants. The
plaintiff says that he and the defend
ants own the land as tenants in com
mon, as heirs of Abraham Roberts, Jr ,
deceased. The plaintiff says that he
is the owner In fee simple of the undi
vlded one-two hundred and fifty second
Dart of the premises. He asks that
his share be set off to him In severalty
and if this can not be done that the
land be sold and the proceeds divided
among the parties according to their
Cyrus Shaffer asks for the partition
of 94i acres of land In Hamer township.
The defendants are W. W. Falrley,
Leonard Fawley, Herman Charles,
Homer Duncanson and Bertha Fawley
Williams. The plaintiff says that he
and the defendants own the land as
tenants In common, each owning an
undivided one sixth part. The plain
tiff further says that he secured his
interest by devise from his wife, who
was an heir of George Fawley, de
ceased, and that the defendants are
heirs of George Fawley, deceased.
Robert W. Brown against The Balti
more & Ohio South-Western R. R. Co.,
is a suit for $205 92 damages. The
plaintiff says that on March 16 1914,
he shipped a car load of hogs from
Lynchburg to Charles Perslnger at
Johnson's Station in Fayette county :
that he had sold the hogs to Perslnger
for $922 70 upon the agreement that
they should not pass through the
Union Stock Yards In Cincinnati ; that
contrary to his agreement with the
Railroad Co. the hogs were taken to
the Cincinnati Stock Yards and Per
slnger hearing of it refused to accept
them ; Ithat the plaintiff was then
forced to sell the hogs for $764 03,
which with freight paid and other ex
pense in tracing the hogs made his
loss $205.92. This loss the plaintiff
says was due entirely to the failure of
the defendant to comply with its con
tract and on account of the negligence
and fault of its employees. He, there

A meeting of J. W. Evans, O. N.

the contributors to the Hospital Fund

The trustees then passed a resolu

checks to subscribers for the amount
they had paid over twenty five per
cent, of their subscriptions. These
checks will be mailed by Mr. McMullen
within the next week.
