The Keliison Divocce Case.
We have refraimed from giving any
of the evidence or any particulars of
the suit of Flora Keliison versus
Charles Keliison which attracted a
large crowd Friday and Saturday. It
is a pity that so much that was un
necessary was told in court. People
from all parts of the county go home
saying that if all the testimony is true
nobody could live with either of them,
when the facts are that both are prob
ably about as good as the average
citizen. The case was tried by Judge
Adair of Columbia pity. Martindale
and Stevens represented the plaintiff
and Hon. C. P. Drummond was Mr.
Keliison 's attorney.
At the conclusion of the arguments
of attorneys Saturday evening, Judge
Adair cieciaeu mat 3ir. Keliison was
entitled to a divorce on his crossbill
and allowed Mrs. Keliison $200 to pay
costs and attorney fees.

One of Plymouth's Oldest, Most Prom
inent and Respected Citizens
Died Sunday Night
After a long and at times very pain
ful illness, Nathan II. Oglesbee, died
at his home in this city at 11:40 p.
m., Sunday Nov. io, aged 75 years
and four months.
Deceased had been for almost half a
century one of Marshall county's most
prominent citizens, and his cjath will
rill with sadness the hearts of hosts of
friends in every section of the county.
He was the son of Jacob and Edith
(Woolman) Ogle.:bee,who were natives,
respectively of Virginia and New
Jersey and their parents were among
the earlv settlers of Ohio. Maternal
ly Mr. Oglesbee was a descendant of
John Woolman, the eminent Quaker
of England, who is a conspicuous
figure in the early history of the
Friends' church.
Nathan II. Oglesbee was born in
Greene county, Ohio, July 10, 1826.
He was reared on a farm, received a
good common schcol education, learn
ed the carpenter trade, and came to
Laporte county, Ind., in 1854, where
he followed his trade until 1856 whpn
he removed to Plymouth and engaged
in the merchantile business. He sold
goods here with success for about four
years although during that time his
store was twice almost completely de
stroyed by tire. -
He always took an active interest in
political affairs and in 1858 was elect
ed treasurer on the republican ticket
over a large democratic majority, was
re-elected in 1860 and his official rec
ord is one of the best in the history
of Marshall county. .
He went into the army in 1863, was
appointed captain commissary of sub
sistence and established supply depots
throughout the south.
At the close of the war he returned
to Marshall county and engaged in
the lumber business in which he was
very successful.
He was also a member and director
of the Indiana Lumber company with
headquarters at Nashville, Tennessee,
and later operated a large mill at
Simpson, III. Failing health com
pelled his retirement from active bus
iness about eight years ago, and he
resided for several years on his farm
south of town, returning to this city
about a year ago
He was twjee married, his first wife
was Mary A. Walm who died in Ohio
in 1853. His second marriage was
solemnized with Lydia Doolittle of
Plymouth," in 1857, whose death
occurcd in 1877. She was the mother
of three children; Rtf!o B. the pres
ent editor of the Plymouth Tribune,
Walter, who died a few years ago, and
Jeanne, who has remained at home
and cared for her father durinjr his
long illness. '
Funeral services were held at late
residence of deceased, on South Michi
gan street at 2 o'clock p. m., Tuesday,
conducted by Rev. Geo. A. Little, of
Cicero, and Rev. O. S. Thornberry, of
this city r.nd the remains were
interred in the family lot at Oak Hill
In the death of N. II. Oglesbee the
county loses one of its oldest, best and
most enterprising citizens.
He was an honest man, a man of
positive opinions true as steel to his
friends, but always ready to deal just
ly with foes as well as friends.
Landis Sees Roosevelt
Congressman Charles B. Landis of
Indiana, an active opponent of civil
service, called on President Roosevelt
Saturday morning. The congressman
went to the white house with fear
and trembling, for he had bitterly at
tacked the president both as a civil
service commissioner and as assistant
secretary of the navy oh account of
his strenuous ideas on the subject.
When he introduced himself to Mr.
Roosevelt the president1 said: 4 'Oh,
yes, you are the congressman who has
criticised my attitude on civil service
so severely. Well, I am glad to meet
you; I admire you for it, because it
shows that you are a man of Ideas.
You are - the -sort "of a mar. Hike to
