The Murder Trial On Saturday evening, July 25, 1891, Mentor Headlands was the scene of a most inhuman murder. William Wood, a young farmer of thirty-five, living alone in the last house on the lake road which is terminated by the Mentor Marsh, was doing his evening’s milking in the barn, which stands at the rear of the house, when he was attacked by an unknown person. He fled and his attacker fired at him. Eugene Brooks, Wood’s nearest neighbor heard the firing and cries for help. He counted four or five shots than all was still. He hurried to his neighbor’s house and did not find Wood. There was a long and tedious search for the body of Wood, and it was discovered in a lot east of the house Sunday afternoon. In the searching party early in the morning was Herman Tennstett, a German in the employ of Charles Schwind. His absence from home the previous night led to suspicion, and he was taken into custody by the Sheriff. The

prisoner’s life at the home of Charles Schwind, the deception he practiced in seeking the hand of Miss Agnes Schwind in marriage and the subsequent discoveries made by the diligence of Sheriff Button and the Prosecuting Attorney Harper will all be in the trial which begin tomorrow.

New case: Tydvil M. Huntington vs Francis M. Huntington, alimony and injunction. A Golden Wedding in Perry Mr. & Mrs. Harry N. Carter were married May 10th, 1842. Laura Hutchinson married Harry Carter in LeRoy. About two hundred guests assembled in the cheese factory for their golden wedding anniversary. Mrs. Carter was born in Columbia Co., N.Y., in 1816. Mr. Carter in Litchfield, Conn., in 1816. Their married life has all been spent in Lake Co., and nearly evenly divided between LeRoy and Perry. One daughter, now Mrs. Collins, of Ashtabula, has blessed their home, and she, with her two children, were present at the golden wedding. Mrs. Jameson, the only sister of Mrs. Carter, came from Mansfield, O., with her son, Mr. Charles Jameson. Mr. C. W. Jacques, of Ashtabula, Mrs. Carter’s nephew, and Mrs. Jacques were also present. The Demands of Justice Meted out to R. K. Paige On Monday morning, March 21, the Painesville Savings & Loan Assoc. closed its doors. Today its cashier and responsible manager is under a sentence of ten years in the penitentiary. Much local history has been crowded into these seven weeks. They have been days of great intensity of feeling, bitterness, and anguish, and have brought suffering to homes where happiness reigned supreme. Painesville has never seen the like, and we trust may never see it again. Capt. Burrows made a statement regarding the affairs of the bank to explain how this thing came about. When deposits were made in that bank they were, used with apparent prudence in the affairs of Hulbert & Paige. Paige of that firm was a brother of the defendant. The manufacturing in which he was engaged seemed calculated to support a prosperous business. Money deposited in the bank would be loaned to Hulbert & Paige, say $20,000 - $25,000 at a time. Hulbert died in 1876 insolvent and at that time the firm of Hulbert & Paige was indebted to the bank in the sum of $75,000. From that time on,

it was impossible for C. C. Paige to fail without carrying the bank with him. As it would be necessary for the Paige Mfg. Co. to have more machinery and so on, it would also be necessary to borrow from the bank to prevent failure. When the bank actually did fail, this indebtedness amounted to nearly $250,000. Now in addition to that and for the purpose of retrieving his loss, Mr. R. K. Paige invested large amounts of money in a mine near Leadville. The investment was not successful. About $150,000 was lost in this way. It may someday be profitable; it is at present worthless. What Mr. Paige did at last brought him to this unhappy pass; he did it for the purpose of preventing the calamity that has compassed the ruin of many homes. He used the paper of the Paige Mfg. Co. till the mine should make some return or the Paige Mfg. Co. should be reorganized to make it pay. May Real Estate Transfers Painesville - S. R.

Delos is connected with the City Press Association of Boston in whose interests he made the venturesome journey on the Fourth in company with the aeronaut, Prof. Rogers, and his assistant. He is now in the hospital in Boston and has given an account of his trip. The balloon arose and was swept by a strong wind from the west. It was evident we were heading for the harbor, so Prof. Rogers said we would land on Thompson’s Island. To fail at this would mean to be carried out to sea. The escape valve cord refused to work. It was then a question of life or death. Finally, the valve opened, but then refused to close. Suddenly we heard a noise overhead and a rent appeared in the balloon which soon increased to the length of a yard. The balloon descended like an arrow, a moment later we struck the water. I was able to get out of the basket. I started swimming for shore and felt sick from the gas. I heard the Professor behind and supposed he too was swimming. Whether Prof. Rogers died from the effects of the gas or the fall I do not know. Goldsmith is 20 yrs. old an expert yachtsman and swimmer. Unionville Mr. & Mrs. A. J. Bancroft spent some time in Cleveland last week. Mr. John Hall Sherwood has returned to his home in this place, after spending the past year in Boston.

Bailey to Mary Parish Death of Mrs. Thompson (The Milwaukee Journal) Mrs. Emeline L. Thompson, wife of A. M. Thompson, a former editor to the Milwaukee Sentinel and for years a prominent figure in state politics died at the family residence 785 Cass street, this morning after a long illness. Mrs. Thompson was born at Barre, Vt., in 1822, and moved with her parents to northern Ohio when quite young. There she was educated as a teacher and followed this calling for many years. At the time of her marriage, she was at the head of the female department of the Western Reserve Teacher’s Seminary, Kirtland, Ohio. In 1850, she came west with her husband, settling at what is now the town of Hartford. Mrs. Phebe Antisdel Cady Mrs. Cady, who died at her home in Madison, July 11th, was one of the very earliest settlers of Lake Co. and Madison’s oldest resident. She was born at Willington, Tolland Co., Conn., Sept. 29, 1800, and was a few weeks short of 92 yrs. old. In 1812, her father, Mr. Curtis Antisdel, decided to seek a new home in what was then the far west, and early in the fall of that year the family set out with ox teams and wagons on the long journey to the Western Reserve. They reached the lake at Erie and finished the journey on its ice-covered margin, reaching Madison, their destination, early in the spring of 1813. Here Mr. Antisdel bought land which has since become the Dewey farm, on the South Ridge. Any roads that existed at this time were just narrow paths through the forests, marked by “blazed” trees. This blazing, consisted of simply hewing off

immense chips from the standing trees. Ten days before her sixteenth birthday, Sep. 19, 1816, Phebe married Mr. Joseph Cady, of New York and moved to her husband’s farm near the western border of Madison township. For a few years, they lived in Perry and LeRoy, but returned to their Madison home and spent the remainder of their married life there, only excepting a year passed with Mr. Cady’s aged parents in New York. They were married over fifty-one years. Mr. Cady died in 1863. Eight children, seven of them sons, were born to them. Those surviving are Curtis T. Cady, of Lansing, Mich.; and Oscar H. and Newton J. Cady, of Madison. The only daughter, Mrs. Sarah A. Merrill, is now living in Nebraska at the age of seventy-five. Of Mrs. Cady’s brothers and sisters, only one is left, Mrs. Mary P. Wyman, of Perry. After her husband’s death, she lived some years at the old home, but then went to live with her son Newton, in Madison village, and several years since moved to Mr. Cady’s present farm, one mile east of Madison. Eight days before her death, she suffered internal injuries from a fall from which she could not recover. (A poem is printed that she composed on her 89th birthday.) Perry Mrs. C. F.

brother. Funeral services will be Thursday at the Cowles House.

A Bad Fall David Graves, who lives on the Brink farm on Elm street, while feeding his cattle Wed. evening, fell from the hayloft to the floor below, 8 or 10 feet, and was severely injured. He struck the back of his head. Dr. Axtell believes he will recover, though for one so advanced in years the fall was a very bad one. Samuel Brewer Injured A splinter thrown from a buzz-saw struck him in the breast. Mr. Brewer was building an addition to his building and had a buzz saw in operation. As he was feeding in a board, it caught in some way and was thrown back, striking him a terrible blow to the chest. No bones were found broken and the only danger is from internal injuries Instantly Killed One of those shocking accidents which causes the blood to congeal occurred at Madison last night. Mrs. Mark Ernst, stepped from the midnight train to her death. No. 2 east bound express and No. 13 west bound Chicago pass each other just west of Madison depot. The difference in time at the station is one minute. It happened that the Chicago mail was a trifle late last night and No. 2 had to stop this side of the station to avoid it. Mr. & Mrs. Ernst, of Thompson, supposing they were at the station, left the train at this point. There appears to have been neither brakeman or conductor on guard to warn them of their danger. In getting out in the dark, Mrs. Ernst walked on the south track directly in front of the westbound mail. The rest need not be told. She was instantly killed and her body horribly mangled. Mrs. Ernst is a cousin

of Mr. E. D. Keener, of this place. Her maiden name was Settie Bowers. Her husband is the proprietor of the Thompson House at the center of the township. They have three small children.

The painting of horses, the mutilating of their manes and tails, the taking off and hiding of axle nuts from wagons, and the cutting of screen doors, the breaking of window glass, etc. is not considered fun by the average Mentorite, and it is well that the perpetrators of such evils deeds are not known.

A Mysterious Fire Thursday night there was a burning bed at the house of Thomas Rooney on State street, north of the warehouses of S. R. King.

John Muller and William O’Leary had the fire out before the fire department got there, who procured buckets and thoroughly drenched both Rooney and the bed with water. The origin of the fire is a mystery and circ*mstances would seem to point to foul play. He had left his lamp in the kitchen, but found this lamp in his bedroom when he was aroused. He said he had five ten-dollar gold pieces wrapped in a handkerchief and concealed in the bed. The gold is missing. The bed was thrown out of doors and the red handkerchief was this morning found tied around the door knob. She Took Them In On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of last week, ten or our leading merchants were neatly taken in by a modest appearing young lady who worked a bold game. The scheme was this: The young lady would go into a dry goods store and say that Mrs. Prentice, wife of G. H. Prentice, the road master at the Lake Shore, desired to purchase a certain article but was unable to

come to the store and wanted the young lady to take the specimens of the goods to her for inspection. In each case, the young lady promised to return the goods or the price later in the day, which she failed to do. The request was a common one and no one suspected anything wrong, and had not even asked the young woman’s name, though she was a stranger. The baggageman at the Lake Shore assisted a young lady to get her many parcels on the late train Sat. night. One article, which was especially noticed and she desired to have checked, was a bamboo easel, and this finally led to the arrest of Miss Edith Knapp, of Geneva. Marshal Barber, went to Geneva Wed. and had no difficulty tracing the girl with the easel to the home of W. M. Knapp, where she was arrested. Wm. M. Knapp, the father or the girl, came with her. He was formerly employed by Road Master G. H. Prentice, and lived in this city about two years. He is now in the employ of the Nickel Plate in Geneva as a flagman.

Proudfoot, went out hunting for rabbits. Hale had a rifle and was working in some briers, when his gun, in some way discharged, the bullet struck Mr. Quincy, who was sitting 4 or 5 rods distant. Getting down from the fence, he exclaimed, “who struck me?” and started for the house a short distance away. He walked about 100 yards when his strength failed him and his companions carried him the rest of the way. Physicians were called and could not find the ball which entered the side below the shoulder and passed inward between the ribs. Mr. Hale is a dangerous associate. It was he who shot Mr. Proudfoot’s son in the face with a revolver last spring, and it is only a few weeks ago since he accidentally dislocated a shoulder for Chas. Cole. There is some talk of teaching him a lesson for his carelessness. Mrs. Will Hodge and children are boarding for the winter with her parents, Mr. & Mrs. George Rose.

Dec. 28, 1892 Court of Common Pleas Lee Corbett vs Thomas Corbett. Alimony Anna V. Williams vs William Williams. Divorce, alimony and custody of children Henry L. Lobdell vs George W. Kniffin. Appeal from Justice of the Peace John Thomas vs. L. A. Thorp. Appeal from Justice of the Peace Patrick, Mike, and Thomas Cribbins were indicted on by the grand jury for burglary and larceny on freight cars Two indictments were found against Merrill Herroon, one charge him with marrying Maud Donnelly while one Ella Scott was his lawful wife. All three alleged wives were present at the trial. The defendant did not attempt to make a defense but relied almost entirely upon a technicality. This point of this technicality was that Ella Scott, was the lawful wife of Herroon when he married Maud Donnelly, had been previously married to one Greenfield, from whom he had been divorced in Monroe Co., Michigan. The defense made the point that the State should have offered in evidence a complete exemplification of the record in this divorce case, instead of the decree of divorce merely. The name of the first wife of Herroon was in the indictment as Ella Scott, this name should have been Ella Greenfield. Madison F. T.
