Rebec -a Bturington was the last surviving member of the family of The late Richard Barnngton, Sr., and Elizabeth Barrington. Endowed from birth with a normal mind and coming of a clan among thhe best bal anced in the community, Rebecca Barring', n was thrown into mental disorder throufrh fright. Her case Is a pathe !c one that of a little child lost two days and a night in the vir gin willerness. On a summer day she wandered from other children of the family while gathering berries in the woo li. i'e other children came home et noon without her. A search ing pa; was quickly organized and scoured the woods where they had been. ':ght came on ,the little girl still mi-.sing. A large per cent, of the adu't male population of the vil lage wai enlisted in tne search which was prolonged through the night and till dusk of the following evening. Crouched behind a fallen tree in the district towa'd Moulton, the child leaped mid rap when the late Henry Hopson ,a member ot the hunting rarty dvtie acjoss her hiding place. A sharp effort was necessary to over take an J capture the fear-struck caildisli wanderer. The shaken men tal faculties never adjusted them selves, ileassurances on the part of the family. Oiends and playmates failed cf bringing back the poise which f.h wilderness shock had over thrown. The lapse of years brought no relie?, there was in fact tendency to addad weakness as maturity came on.

St. Marys Leader The dead body of John Lets, a god twenty-one years lucking two monthB, was foi'nd b Noah Flnke at 11 o'clock Sunday night, April 8th, 1917. The ro nala lay at the edge of the Orenvlile road. Just east of the L. E. & W. MIn"ter branch right of way of the Western Ohio coal storage yard. The forehead, near the hair line, is penetrated to a depth, of seven inches O' more, causing heavy hemorrhage from the brain cavity. Powder burns on the foreliead and under the bat rim give oviueuee cf close range shooting. Death1 wns doubtless ln r.taneous. A new thirty-two caliber Iver-Johnson five-shooter revolver filled with ch lridge3 excep.t for one empty shell lay under Mr. Lels' left hand where he had fallen. Thero were no witnesses to the tragedy, wbich fact leaves room for a degree of uncertainty as to how the f vtal incident was performed. There li no evdenco of any struggle prior tr. or after the shot was inflicted. Numerous friends, including the grief-siricken financee of the lament ed young ruin, can scarcely biing themselves to helievo the self-destruction theory. All reports con cerning him up to within a few mo units fore (he shot, was heard in dicate ho was in perfect mental bal !uce and happy over his intended niarrlao wlieh had been set forward from March 22nd, 1917, to this (Monday) afternoon, April 9th, 1917.
