High-Spots Anti-Horse Thief Associations Flourished in This Section Years Ago; Other News of the Day. RITES MONDAY FOR HURON MAN John Slyker Third in Family to Die Within Month. (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourth of n series of "HlRli Spots" bawd on Items in the news of local and national character In other years of Sandusky's history. Others have appeared on this page In recent Sunday Issues.) In this day of the motor car and the ali-plane, to say nothing of other modes of fast transportation, It, is cause for a smile to recall the days of the old horse-thief protective associations which flourished in all parts of the country only a few years ago. They were active all through Flrelanda-In Norwalk, Monroeville, Fremont, Klpton-everywhere; even the Islands had their organizations, or representatives authorized to act In case of emergenoy. It's fun now,-to glance over yellow and musty pages of newspapers doted a few years back, and read where one neighborhood or another "was aroused last night by the reported theft of a fine horse from the stable, (or the hitching post) or Frank So-and-so." At Klpton, for Instance, one night in 1887:- Two men took a carriage with two horses, drove to Monroeville where they made preparations to put up for the night. ' They "became suspicious, however, that the marshal was looking with question on their presence, and hastily left town." And one cannot but wonder, in reading that, Just how much time it required for the same marshal to become "suspicious" and becoming so, to act. Maybe he didn't have his bicycle or roller skates with him. Speaking of automobiles: Remember the first vintage Forda that P. J.

ULnuu ,XJ 1 "u n,,l"u He leaves his widow and two sons, lights that burned oil; brass brace-rods that connected windshield with fenders and hood. That was before the day of the side-door; driver and passenger sat very primly and sometimes unsecurely, the latter especially, If a curve was rounded at too great a Bpeed. The steering wheel and shaft occupied a nearly vertical position, and the bulb horn, with Its "honk-honk" noise, was effective only In proportion to the amount of energy applied to the bulb. A longshoreman, or carpenter could "work" quite a "honk" from the thing; conversely, Milady, with her deilcate white hanaa could get scarcely a squeak. These Fords- runabouts, they were called,-sold for $600. So much for that. During the same year, 1907, San-dusklans were Interested In the announcement that President Roosevelt, in all probability, would be a guest at Cedar Point at the national convention oB veterans of tho Spanish American War. Mrs. William McKlnley, wife of Ohio's martyred president, died on May 25, that year, and the grief of a nation was laid at her door In Canton. A glove and mitten factory was projected here about the same time -by C. O. Truax of Fremont. The Order of Owls, described as something unique In fraternal secret organizations, was chartered by the national chapter, headed by Illinois men. The brand-new steamer New York arrived for service of the Cedar Point company, between here and the Point. "Tho latest and finest boat of Its kind afloat," said descriptions appearing In local newspapers. Harry Thaw, who shot and killed Stanford White, was facing a continuation of his trial, following disagreement of a Jury aa to his guilt, and the press of alienists that he was insane.
