All of the boys were in high spirits and anxious to arrive at the camp where thoy will go into training. A good-sized crowd seen them off, and the good wishes of their Lome folks, which means the whole county, goes with them. It is to be regretted there was one slacker in the original list. HIGHEST COURT IS APPEALED TO A case that was supposed to be dead beyond resurrection, when the Ohio Su preme Court decided against the plain tins in tne case of Albert Palmer et al vs. the State of Ohio, has been revived The decision of the State's highest tri bunal affirmed the finding of the Court of Appeals for this countv. and was handed down early in last Inlv.

Mercer's county's first ten in the service of their country in the selected armv will loner linger fondly in the minds of our people. The Dayton News well says in a leading editorial, "the men who are departing to' become soldiers in the army of the United States deserve all the honor that can be bestowed upon them. Upon the National Army will fall a heavy share of the burden of responsibility apportioned to our country in the effort to make the world safe for democracy. In bidding these men God-speed we can do no better than to quote some of the words of the Preident. addressed a few days ago to the National Army man: "You are undertaking a great duty. The heart of the whole county is with you. . . The eyes of all the world will be upon you, because you are in some special sense the soldiers of freedom." Following are boys to answer to the first call: Edward Sanner, Ft Recovery Albert Mullenkamp, Burkettsville Charles O. Ellis, Celina James H. Riley, Rockford Russell Leiser, Rockford.

J WEEKLY Italian forces who are" battling their way toward Trieste, the great Aus trian pert In the Adriatic sea, made further gains on the Isonzo front dur ing the week. A number of Austrian positions were taken, with prisoners, bringing the total for the offensive up to more than 27,000. The Italians also captured additional trench elements on the Careo and withstood success fully violent counter attacks by the Austrians on the slopes of Monte San Gabrlele. German armies are closing in on Riga, the great Russian port on th Baltic. The city Is beset on three sides and Its capture Is believed Im minent. After a heavy bombardment (he Germans captured Uzhall bridge head and crossed the Dvlnsk river fifteen miles south of Riga, and shaped their course northward. Field Marshal Von Mackensen's J rive against the Moldavian lines aorta of Fokshanl does not seem o be gaining the force which' it prom ised to attain for a time and press 4ispatehes have reported the Rou manians hopeful of retaining Molda via In spite of heavy Teutonic pres sure. In Macedonia the entente troops at tacked at several points. Berlin re ported repulses for Italians, Serbians and- French in attempts upon the Germane-Bulgarian lines. In Flanders the British guns are again' thundering tne threat of re newed infantry thrusts against the German lines. The French, while com-, paratfvely quiescent in the Verdun region, are giving another display of their successful dashing tactics In the Alsne region. A feature of the week was the re jeotloa by President JWllnon of the WAR REVIEW , pope's peace proposals. The presi dent, anion other things, said: "We can not take the word of the present rulers of Germany as a guarantee of anything that is to endure, unless ex plicitly supported by such conclusive evidence of the will and purpose of the German people themselves as the other peonies of the world would be Justified in accepting." Petrograd officially announced on Sept. 3 the evacuation of Riga, the biff Russian port on the Baltic sea. and Its occupation by the Germans. The civil population retreated east ward. Behind them the Russians in the retreat from Riga are laying the country in waste, burning villages and farms. Russians still defending the western bank of the Dvina river around Dahlen seemingly are In dan ger of being caught between the two fast-moving bodies of the enemy and made prisoner. Berlin announced the capture of thousands of prisoners and 150 guns in the drive against Riga. As a result of Monday night's raid over the Chatham-Shoerness area, ol England, German airplanes killed 107 persons and wounded 86. Chatham Is a British naval base and Shesrness Is a naval and military depot. Most of the victims were marines. London reported, Sept 5, another air raid, the Germans dropping shells on the southeast coast and in the London district . In the capture of the Duenamuende fortress ait the mouth of tne Dvlnts river the Germans secured Intact the big coast defense guns. Rome announced on Sept. 6 the re sumption of the Italian offensive against Austrian positions on tht Balnstzza plateau and to the northeast of Gorlzla. Enemy positions near Oerogia were taken. Artillery engagements continue on the. western front. A rather Innocent looking adver tisemnnt In the Standard of last Frl day, bearin gthe ear mark of Allen Ripley Foote, who has been serving mammon raithrully and well these many years, appeared under the cap tion of "Government Seeking New Sources of Taxation." This time he is serving the whisky and beer trust. If you want to reach the interests he is working for, all you have to do is to write to "American Progress" 332 C Rteet, N. W., Washington D. C, If you do not happen to have a Daily Standard, hunt one up and see how sources too cowardly to fight In the upon do their work. Remember, first, it is paid matter at s much per, and then you will start off with a betlnr view point. Mr. Foote is much concerned about business being tax ed certain business. Keep that in mind too. Notice that he is worried about the single tax. Then he wor ries about the loss of liquor revenue. It is not the first time he has held up the single tax scarecrow when some thing was likely to happen to the whisky truBt, beer trust, or some other privilege If mammon. But this time fc! is fighting prohibition. Fun ny way to do it, isn't It But it is the way the Interests work the game. This sort of advertisement in, the form of reading matter is offered to every paper in the state that will sell Its columns for that purpose. The Democrat ha sbeen asked for its rates on the same stuff. But don't let this misleading stuff get you off the track. The whisky trust and the beer trust want ylur aid this fall. They think the single tax will scare you to death and make you forget the fight against booze. Whila the people will never get the single tax until they want it, it would seem that it must be a good thing when you see worshipers of mammon so deeply concerned about it. However, those who favor state wide prohibition should get wise to the game. Ask the papers that print it if it isn't paid fir and if not, what they ate running it for. Before the campaign ends, patriot ic slush will be worked in it and through it to a finish. Manager Turner, of the local Dry forces, as well as the township chair man, should watch for this beer and whiskey soaked advertising. It will be -.Ussuised in other ways. CLOSE CALL FOR AUTOIST8 AT i:ik;kwatkr park Druggist WillHhlre Hight had his shoulder dislocated and Fred Barr, well known local merchant, was bad ly n'laken up lust Tuesday, when an automobile drjven oy tne latter was struck by a W, 0. traction car at the Edgewater Park crossing.

The attendants were Lenore Gels, RED CROSS RALLY SPLENDID SUCCESS A magnificent crowd was drawn to this city last Sunday on the occasion of the county Red Cross rally, and what is more gratifying it was a very patrtotic one and in sympathy with the movement that called it together, and there was not one dissenting voice heard in the big as semblage as the speakers drove home some telling points for which America stands in the world-wide conflict for de mocracy. There was only one disappointment in tne great rally, and that was the ab sence of Gov. Cox, who promised Chair man Scbunck of the county Red Cross organization that he would come, and was allowed to name his own date. He sent Mr. Schunck a ttlegram just a few hours before the meeting, which the Chairman read at the opening. The Chairman was probably the most disap pointed person at tne rally on this ac tus introductory PALMER REUNION TO BE HELD AT BURDGE'S GROVE The Palmer family reunion will be held next Wednesday, the 12th, at the H.

Of German parentage, with a knowledge of German laws and Ger man intrigue as few men of that nation ahty in this country possess, outside those in its service, he spoke plainly of tne duty men ot loreign birth owed to the country of their adoption in this time of stress. If among Mr. Goeke's listeners there was any person who thought he would find some crumb of comfort or an apol gy for the German government in the present crisis from Mr. Goeke because of his parentage, the mind of that indi ual must have undergone a sudden re vision. Nobody nas ever questioned the Americanism of Mr. Goeke, but he ad ded immeasureably to his popularity with an audience the greater portion of which had never heard him before last Sunday. There were straight jabs at those who came to this country to live in a freer atmosphere, where they and their children were on a level with every I Dayton News, Sept. 5 With a report submitted to officials upon a survey made of tne road beds of the divisions of the B. & O. S.W., form erly the C.H.&D. , rumors are again in circulation concerning alleged proposed extensive changes and modern improve' ments. Not the least of these is a change from steam to electricity as the motive power for operating the lines. Officials have not given out anything concerning the proposed improvements, but it is said that Vice President J. M Davis and other officials have been made familiar with all of the needs of the system. Plans to convert tne Delphos division into a traction line between this city and Delphos has long been considered, and providing a sale of the division is not upheld by which the line would be abandoned, it would not come as a sur prise in many circles if it were announc ed that electric cars were to be put in operation on the division.

Our friend Dan Boley, of Washington township, while at the hub Tuesday looking after some business matters, left us a couple big Bryan dollars to push his subscription ahead. Dan says he has some good corn this year, and then some that looks like it had the yellow ian' ders." Democratic Central Committeeman J, E. Snider, of Blackcreek township, was in town Tuesday filing petitions with the board of elections of men aspiring to township offices. He was down this way to get a plasterer for a lob he is com pleting and incidentally making himself useful. Edwin G. Knepper, writing from Ft. Benjamin Harrison, lnd., says he is en joying the work in the training camp He is with First Battery, F. A., Second Training Camp. Mr. Knepper is a well known teacher, and until his resigna tion to join Uncle Sam's new army was superintendent of the Fourth Supervis ion District of this county. Henry Diener and wife, of Toledo, who spent a few days here last week vis iting relatives and friends, returned home Monday. Henry is working in the wood-working department of the Ohio Electric Co., and is much pleased with his situation and Toledo in general. John Rabe, the well known Washing ton township horse-breeder, was in town Tuesday looking after some business matters, and was among our visitors.'

Loramle, Newark and Daytor, has retuned home. sympathies go out to an autocratic eov ernment the very antithesis of the one under which they chose to live and it seems going much out of their way to do so. Unly one fault could Mr. Goeke find with the administration's war prog ram, and that was for exempting any sect from their duty to the government in its hour of peril, and there were no signs of dissent with the statement from his audience. It is to be regretted more of the big crowd could not be reached by his voice, for they would have carried away with them the praise that was on the lips of those who did for his patri otic and clean-cut exposition of democ racy that the world is yearning for and it is to he hoped will be achieved by the downfall of German autocracy and the spirit of conquest. Mr. Goeke spoke of Red Cross work in his town and county, and they surely are doing tnings over in Auglaize, com pared witn wnicn we seem to be la?' gards.

The interior of the Heston home re sembled a shambles, the blood of three people spattered over the furniture, on me floors, walls and bed. The murder and the suicide sent a thrill of horror through the entire county. Remarkable bravery was shown by Mattie Allen, who wrestled a gun away from her lunatic stepfather after her mother had been shot.
