His head was badly mashed and he was otherwise bruised. He was taken out and removed to his home and medical aid summoned. The physician pronounced his condition seriouB.- The residence of Edward Whitman caught fire Thursday and caused quite a panic for a few minutes. Soot in the cook stove flue caught fire and set fire to the wood work about the flue. The tpost damage was done by water thrown over the house in extin-gi^hing the^fire. They burn gas in \he cook stove but formerly burned coal and the soot left in the fbjie caught fire from the heat of the gas fire. Today is the first day of March. If “March comes in’ nice it goes Six children, out bad,” goes the old saying. “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” but we can’t help the bad weather we have been having, so there! And for those born on March 1st many dangers beset them.* For instance, a large, wide woman with this for her birthday should not step on a cake of soap left at the top of a flight of stairs. If she does, it signifi^ a sudden reverse, probably followed by a series of revolutions. And the man born this date should be extremely careful when walking under a safe that is being hoisted to the fourteenth story. There Is scarcely an instance where a safe has fallen fourteen stories on such a man without injuring him considerably. Judge Bretz gave William Crec-elius, of Logan township, probably as severe reprimand as was ever heard in the Pike county court house one day last week. Crecelius was a member of the regular panel of jurors and was left on when the case of State ex rel Maude Gideon vs Floyd Chew for bastardy was tried. The jury voted twenty-six times and each time Crecelius voted a slip of paper on which he would write the word “blank.” As an excuse for voting that way Jwenty-six-times the juror said he could not make upi his mind as to the guilt or innocence of the defendant. Judge Bretz told him that his excuse was no excuse at all and read the statute to him showing him how he had laid himself liable to a heavy fine and imprisonment and further told him that he thought he really should fine him but said that he would leave the matter to Prosecutor Carpenter and the next grand jury. During the reprimand the other members of the jury were present and heard what the»judge had to say. Most people who heard the harsh words from the bench say they would prefer to have been sent to jail for thirty days than to have been compelled to take the reprimand. What the prosecutor will do in the matter is not known; It is said that a son of Crecelius was once indicted on the same charge and that the old man had to dig up $400. He is said to be a religious crank and it was thought that he laid himself liable to contempt through ignorance of the law. He told Judge Bretz that if he had had to vote either way he would have voted “no.” The matter has been left with the prosecutor and it is up to him whether he presents the matter to the next grand jury. and in a way calculated to do the town the most harm. The truth about the situation has been bad enough let alone the outrageous misrepresentations that have been put before the public. The story has been printed that we have sixty cases, the business houses have been closed by order of the health authorities and hundreds of people were detained in the pest house. The truth of the matter is there has been sixteen cases at one time with six of them in a pest house. Every one of the cases has been quarantined and a watchful eye kept on them. There has never bee^ a single place of business closed by order of the health authorities. Alvin Traylor closed his hotel of his own free will and went down south on a visit. Greed for sensational “dope” causes many papers to light in on anything they can think of or can get the least suspicion regardlq^s of how it acta on other people. These sensational articles have scared the people living in the country near Winslow so that they are afraid to go near the town and many are afraid to talk over the telephone for fear they will contract the disease “from some one’s breath,” as one fellow put it. We can not think that the articles are malicious, done with the intent of injuring the business of the town but rather think that it is the thirst for sensational stuff that prompts the articles. People are very afraid of small pox and such articles do the town a wonderful amount of harm. There is nothing of ^truth in them. The town is as safe for outsiders to visit as any other town tn the state as there is not a place in town where one could get It without breaking Into a quarantine. There iias not been a new case for more than a week and in a few days all cases will be ready .to turn lose. There has not been a death nor any one bad sick. Our neighboring papers should not jump so readily at street talk but should investigate rumors and see if their source of information is correct. tive, Joseph D. Barker. Committee— Township chairman.
