M. was held Monday night on which occasion there was work In tho blaster's degreo and Installation of officers. Tho retiring Master, W. E Escott, acted as installing officer and just prior to commencing that part o tho ceremonies tho members present ed him with a Past Master's apron as a token of their good will. Past Mas ter E. L. Blue was called upori to make the presentation and spoke as lollows: During tho past two years, yoa havo filled tho station of Master of Phoenix lodge, enjoying honors, bear ing burdens and performing the du ties with credit to yourself and honor to the lodge. It Is my pleasure to perform a very pleasant duty, which Is to present you with a token of tho good will and brotherly fellowship of tho members of the lodge. Tho lamb skin or white apron is tho emblem of purity and tho badgo of a mason, moro ancient than the golden fleece or Roman eaglo, moro honorable than tho star and garter or any other badgo that may bo conferred upon you, and when worthily worn, it leads to tho attainment of higher and greater honors to bo conferred by tho Great Master of tho Universe, when our labors in the earthly lodge aro over.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy the Best Made. "In my opinion Chamberlain' Cough Romcdy is tho best mado for colds," says Mrs. Cora Walker of Portervillo California. There Is no doubt about its bolng the best. No other will euro a cold so quickly. No other is so suro a provontivo of pneu monia. No other is so pleasant and safe to tako. There aro good reasons why it should bo preferred to any other. Tlio fact is that few people aro satis fled with any other after having once used this remedy, For sale by Wn. Comstock & Son, druggists, Tho Circuit couit has affirmed the decision of tho lower courts which fined "Slick" Overly for fishing with a soino iu tho Maumeo river. Overly had raised tho question of tho jurisdictionof tho courts, claim ing that tho fishing wns done on the Lucas county sido. Attorney E. G. McClelland and Prosecutor Ladd held that it was done on tho Wood county side. Overly claimed that tho fishing was done in tho main channel of tho rivor between Island No. 1 and tho Lucas county side, be ing moro than half way to the bound ary of the latter county. Tho prosecution hold that where there are two channels in a Btream, which divides two political bodies of land, tho center of tho main channel is tho boundary line not tho mere center of tho river. As Overly was shown to have fished south of tho center of tho main channel between Island No. 1 and Lucas county they claimed he was in Wood county ter ritory, and the courts havo.just up held them in their opinion. Tho case waB a peculiar one.

On Monday afternoon prisoners were arraigned in Common Pleas court and answered to tho charges against them as follows: William Linder, charged with shoot ing Rssa Colo on Nov. 1-J, with in tout to kill, pleaded guilty to tho charge. James Hardee, alias Clios. Baker pleaded not guilty to tho chargo of forgery. P. J. Chaso is his attorney. Al. Bartz, charged with assault ami robbery upon John W. Shaw pleaded not guilty.

West, who is said to have stolen a suit of clothes, a bolt of silk lining, and a pair of shears from Henry Neiman, pleaded not guilty to a charge of iarcouy. Much sentiment exist among Wood county people against tho Board of Pardons, ou account of their action in tho Downing case, and there is talk of asking for the removal of tho Board. Sheriff Reeco will probably havo petitions circulated in various parts of tho county asking for the removal of tho Boird. Ever since tho mysterious pardon ing of Bill Downing, there havo been many daily expressions to the sheriff that have led him to take this step. Tho officers of this county were led to believe that the application for the pardoning of Mr. Downing would not bo heard for month, but tho very day thoy received this intimation, the board paroled Downing through tho solicitation of somo of his Toledo friends. The county officials want to make it possible to adequately punish pickpockets and others, when once they havo caught them. This latter is hard enough without having all their work undone in so short a time. Joseph M. LaPJant has commenced suit for divorce from Mary LaPant He says they were married in Toledo in 1892 and have a thirteeu-year-old girl living. Ho alleges that his wife has wilfully absented herself from him for more than threo years and has disregarded her marital vows and duties. Marvin Kuhns Marries Widow. Marvin Kuhns tho life prisoner pardoned from tho Ohio penitentiary by Governor Herrick Christmas day, was married at Albion, Ind., Satur day afternoon to Mrs. Kate Hogaus, a widow. She is believed to bo the woman who worked so hard to secure Kuhn's pardon. Tho latter will em bark in business at Churubusco, where the officers shot him down in 1900 when ho was captured.

Only 82 Years Old. "I nra only 82 years old and don't expect oven when I got to bo real old to feel that way as long as I enn get Electric Bitters," says Mrs, E. II. Brunson, of Dublin, Ga.
