Jack LAWSON, 23, animal attendant at the local circus winter quarters died early Monday morning in Woodlawn Hospital from injuries received New Year's day when Sampson, 500-pound male lion attacked him while he was engaged in cleaning the cat's den.

Following the attack, the injured man was rushed to the hospital where it was discovered that he had suffered badly lacerated hands, arms and limbs. Anti-tetanus serum was administered and many stitches were used to close the wounds. Physicians in charge innovated a close check-up for signs of infection, but in spite of this "pasteurella" of lion fever developed.
Lawson entered the cage after other attendants had driven the big cat into the tunnel which connects the cage-blocks to the training arena where Clyde BEATTY was at the time forming his cats in the new animal act ensemble.
As Sampson, the lion which last winter was responsible for Beatty's broken ribs in an attack in the arena, left the cage and entered the chute, Lawson stepped into the cage. A trap door which holds the cats in the chute failed to work, and Sampson, becoming frightened wheeled and went bounding back into his den.
Lawson was able to fight the big cat off for a few minutes with the handle of his broom, but a piledriver blow by the cat broke the stick in his hands, and he went down beneath the tawny form of the cat.
The frightened screams of attendants brought Beatty from the arena, gun in hand. A few flashes from the pistol drove the infuriated beast from the victim, and Beatty, assisted by other cage attendants dragged him to safety.
Lawson, whose home is listed as Lock Springs, Missouri, came to the COLE BROS-CLYDE BEATTY circus last winter. He was on the animal training staff during the summer season, and left the employ of the circus when the season closed at Macon, Ga., November 6.
During the engagement at Flint, Mich., in November, where Beatty appeared for three days, Lawson applied again for a place on the staff. Since return of the animals to winter quarters here he has been retained as a cage-man. He was to have gone with Beatty on a vaudeville tour Jan. 16.
It is probable tha the body will be returned to Lock Springs for burial.

Logansport, Ind., Feb. 18. -- Evidence submitted at the coroner's inquest Monday morning failed to establish the exact time that Elmer Glen KINZIE, 34, Twelve Mile man, met death beneath the wheels of a Wabash train last week. The dismembered body was found along the tracks east of the east city limits of Logansport Friday morning by members of a track crew enroute to work.
That the body had remained on the ground for sometime after the fatality was established by the fact that feet and hands were found to be frozen.
Charles T. HARVEY, 1221 North third street, personal friend of Kinzie, testified at the inquest that he believed he was the last acquaintance of the Twelve Mile man to see him alive. Harvey recalled seeing Kinzie walking along the Wabash railroad track, near Eighteenth street about 2 o'clock Thursday aftenoon. At that time there was an east bound Wabash freight train that had been "cut" at the crossing to permit traffic to use the street, Harvey pointed out. Kinzie was dressed then in the clothes found on his body, Harvey declared.
Details of the injuries, which were numerous, suffered by Kinzie were listed by Glen WISEMAN, of the Miller and Chase mortuary; and presented in typewritten form to the coroner at the time Mr. Wiseman testified at the inquest. The mortuary employee identified articles found in the clothing of the train victim.
Charles HARRELL, 823 Spear street, at whose home Kinzie retained a room, stated at the investigation that Kinzie had been at his room Tuesday and Wednesday. He also pointed out that a young man delivered a suit case to the Harrell home early Thursday evening stating that Glen Kinzie would call for it later in the evening. He did not call.
Others listed to give statements for the coroner were Courtney E. MURRAY, 901 Race street; George BEELER 500 Culbertson, John BECKLEY, 814 Wheatland avenue; Charles TYLER, 529 Barrett street, members of the section crew; Ben HARRIS, Wabash agent, and Vince CARSON, policeman.

Milwaukee police late this afternoon found Mrs. Alice CASEY, mother of Lester CASEY, at 1605 West Juneau Avenue, Milwaukee. A sister, Miss Eunice CASEY, is on her way to this city to claim her brother's body, which is being held in the Val Zimmerman Funeral Apartment.
Lester CASEY, aged 29, Milwaukee, Wis., died in the Woodlawn Hospital at 4 o'clock Wednesday morning from injuries which he received Saturday evening when he was struck by a tractor and trailer driven by Lewis KELLY, employee of a Logansport trucking company.
Dr. Dean STINSON, county coroner, stated that death was due to concussion of the brain and to a gas bacillus infection which developed in a wound on the right arm which Casey suffered when he was struck by Kelly's vehicle.
The accident occurred eight miles north of Rochester in Road 31. Kelly was south bound in Road 31 and Casey was hitch-hiking in the same direction. Kelly was not held by officers who made an investigation of the accident as Casey violated the Indiana state laws by walking with traffic and not against it.
Kelly told officers that he was blinded by the lights of an on-coming car and did not see Casey until he was upon him. Kelly stated he swerved his tractor to avoid striking Casey but that the trailer hit Casey throwing him into the ditch. Casey suffered internal injuries and fractures of the skull and clavicle.
Sheriff Boyd PETERSON and members of the Indiana State Police have been trying for the past three days to obtain some trace of Casey's relatives or friends. Milwaukee police resorted to the use of the radio in that city in an effort to obtain information about Casey but all efforts up until the time The News-Sentinel went to press were unsuccessful.
Casey it is thought was a traveling machinist. He had a Cutler-Hammer Employees Mutual Benefit Association policy in his clothing which was dated in Milwaukee on August 8, 1935. He also had another insurance policy in his clothing.
This was an individual certificate policy and was one written by the Equitable Life Assurance Society on May 26, 1930 through the A. O. Smith Corporation of Milwaukee. This policy was number 0184-10265. An additional rider of $100 was attached to the policy which was dated November 30, 1930.
Casey also had a marriage license on his person which was issued in Milwaukee on January 2, 1929. His bride was Edna SCHILLING, who at that time resided at 548 Reed street, Milwaukee. One of the witnesses was Otto ZASTROW, 2526-B North 15th street, Milwaukee. The justice who performed the ceremony was Carl HAMPEL.
Casey has a son named Donald Lester CASEY, who was born on August 8, 1929, a birth certificate which he had in his pocket disclosed. Casey also had $28.15 in money in a wallet and a Chicago and Milwaukee railroad ticket stamped on March 5.
It is believed that Casey has attended Berlin College in Wisconsin as he had a program for the home-coming at that college on October 26, 1935. Cassey kept a very minute account of all of his expenses in a book which was found in his pocket. The last entry in this book was February 21, 1936. In this book was also an itemized account of the expenses incident to the birth of his son.
Casey was 5 feet 10 inches tall, weight 170 pounds, light hair, gray eyes and was dressed in a blue mixed suit and black overcoat.

Albert Augustus (Gus) TATMAN, passed away at his home on East Rochester Street, Akron, Ind., Wednesday morning. The deceased had been in a srious condition since last Saturday evening from a complication of diseases. Mr. Tatman was well known throughout the eastern section of the county, where he followed the occupation of farming until advanced years forced his retirement.
Albert Augustus, son of Elijah and Elizabeth TATMAN, was born in Claremont county, Ohio on September 22, 1855. He removed with his parents to Wabash county, Indiana, when quite young and later settled on a farm in Henry township. On August 5th, 1880 he was united in wedlock to Mary E. DURNBAUGH, who preceded in death a number of years ago.
On June 7th, 1921 he was united in marriage to Mrs. Mary WATKINS, who survives. The deceased was a member of the Chili Baptist church.
The survivors are the widow; a son, Chester TATMAN, of Akron; a daughter, Mrs. Bertha ROBBINS, of Brockway, Mont.; and the following brothers and sisters: J. F. TATMAN, of Claire, Mich., M. R. TATMAN, of Oakdale, Calif.; Mrs. Josephine MEISER, of Dover, Mich., and Mrs. Dorothy ALLEN, of Dover, Mich. Seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild also survive.

Burton died in the Cass County Hospital in Logansport at 2:40 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
Edgar BURTON, 29, farmer living three miles southeast of Fulton near the Cass-Fulton county line, is in a critical condition in the Cass County Hospital in Logansport from wounds which he allegedly received Tuesday afternoon shortly after 3 o'clock when he was stabbed with a knife in the hands of his father-in-law, Joseph MUSSELMAN, aged 67, of Fulton. Musselman is being held in the Fulton county jail pending the outcome of Burton's injuries.
Musselman is alleged to have attacked his son-in-law when they quarreled over possession of hogs the younger man was loading onto a truck to be hauled to another farm he had just leased. Musselman is charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, preferred by Sheriff Boyd PETERSON. The case had been filed in the Fulton circuit court. High bond will be demanded by Prosecutor Dale POENIX.
Doctors in the Cass County Hospital have been waging a desperate fight to save Burton's life. They have succeeded in stopping the blood flow from a deep wound on the left side of the chest just above the heart. The flow of blood was checked through an autotransfusion and a second transfusion in which a pint of blood was supplied by Fred BURTON, a brother, who lives on a farm near Fulton. An autotransfusion is one in which a man's own blood is used for the transfusion and is very rarely resorted to.
The attack took place on the Mussselman farm of 200 acres and which has been tenanted for several years by Burton, who is the husband of Musselman's only daughter. It was witnessed by Earle MORRISON, employed by Burton and his two small daughters.
When Musselman appeared at the farm and saw that Burton was moving he is said to have put in a claim on the hogs and also stated that Burton owed him money. The men are said to have argued and Burton demanded that his father-in-law apologize for an alleged abusive term used some time ago.
Burton in a statement which he made to Prosecutor Dale POENIX last night in the hospital at Logansport and in the presence of witnesses related that Musselman while he was arguing with him took his pen knife from his pocket and while he (Burton) had his hands at his side, slashed him several times with the knife and then sunk the blade into his body. The left lung is believed to have been punctured.
Burton said that he grabbed the knife and with sheer strength broke the blade and in so duing cut his hand badly. Unfuriated at this turn of events, Musselman rushed toward his automobile which he had driven to the farm from Fulton shouting that he would kill Burton and drew an axe from the car and started to brandish it in the air.

Burton by this time had called his farm hand Morrison and both got into his car and drove away before Musselman was able to employ the axe. Morrison drove Burton to the office of Dr. Donald MILLER at Twelve Mile. Dr. Miller, who is the Cass county coroner, after an examination, ascertained the seriousness of Burton's wounds and ordered him moved to the Logansport hospital.
After the stabbing affray, Musselman drove to Logansport, but was met at the hospital by a brother, who told him to leave before trouble was caused. He then returned to the farm where he was met by Sheriff Boyd Peterson who brought him to the jail here.
Musselman who it is said is possessed of an uncontrollable temper at times, pleaded that he struck his son-in-law in self defense. This version, however, it is said is not substantiated by Morrison, who parted the two fighting men. An examination made of Musselman's body at the jail showed no marks of violence.
Musselman is quite wealthy. His is the owner of several farms in Liberty township and a house in Fulton. He lives with his wife in Fulton. He is to be closely questioned late today by Prosecutor Poenix, Sheriff Peterson and state police.
The incident Tuesday afternoon was the outgrowth of recent controversies between Musselman and his son-in-law, neighbors and friends say. The men have been known to quarrel over money matters in the past.
Prosecutor Poenix stated this afternoon that in event Burton should die, he would ask that the Fulton county grand jury be called. Musselman would be indicted for murder.
Reports from the hospital at Logansport late this afternoon were to the effect that Burton was in a critical condition and little hope was entertained for his recovery.

Mrs. Mary J. PHILLIPS, former resident of this city succumbed at her home in Chicago Wednesday morning, according to meager details received here today by friends. The deceased was the wife of the late John C. PHILLIPS, who at one time was Fulton county auditor.

Miss Edna CASEY, Milwaukee, came to this city today to claim the body of her husband Lester CASEY, who died in the Woodlawn hospital Wednesday from injuries which he received Saturday night when he was struck by a truck driven by Lewis KELLY, Logansport.

John R. BARR, 75, a pioneer citizen of Rochester and Fulton county, passed away at 6 o'clock Saturday morning, at his residence, 315 West 9th street, this city. News of his sudden demise came as a most severe shock to a host of his friends throughout this community.

The funeral services for the late Edgar BURTON, aged 29, farmer living southeast of Fulton, who died in the Cass County Hospital in Logansport, Wednesday from knife wounds allegedly inflicted by his father-in-law, Joseph MUSSELMAN, 68, Fulton, last Tuesday, were held from the United Brethren Church in Fulton, Saturday afternoon.
Over 1200 persons attended the services. They filled all of the available space in the church and the basement of the edifice and the overflow crowd stood in the church yard. Two state policemen were on duty to police the crowd and to keep an aisle open so that the family and pallbearers could pass. It was the largest funeral held in Fulton since that of the late John STANLEY, state policeman, who died of wounds he suffered while in the line of duty.
Mr. Burton was a member of the United Brethren Church at Fulton and was the teacher of the Boys Class and the leader of the Fulton Boy Scout Troop. The members of the class and scouts headed the funeral procession into the church.
The pallbearers were Raymond KIRK, Byron KENT, Ralph HELT, Elgy RENTSCHLER, Lloyd WERNER and Earl MORRISSEY, who was employed on the Burton farm and who was one of the witnesses to the slaying. Many beautiful floral tributes were sent by Mr. Burton's many friends.
Rev. J. W. LAKE, pastor of the Fulton church, read the scripture from the fourteenth chapter of St. John, 1 to 21 verses. He then lead in prayer. Rev. H. W. FRANKLIN, Decatur, former pastor of the Fulton church, gave the funeral oration, using as his text the sixty-eighth verse of the sixth chapter of St. John, whose subject is "Whom Shall We Go To."
The male quartette composed of Guy NELLANS, Don POWNALL, Clyde CHAMP and Carl NELLANS who were accompanied by Mrs. Guy NELLANS, rendered several vocal selections. Burial was made in the cemetery at the north edge of Fulton.
Joseph Musselman, father-in-law of Edgar Burton and his alleged slayer who is being held in the Fulton county jail, was denied permission to attend the funeral of his son-in-law, although he had requested that officers take him to the church. His wife did not attend the services.
In the meantime, the Fulton county grand jury which was convened Saturday morning by Judge Robert MILLER at the request of the Prosecutor Dale POENIX, started its deliberations. It was necessary for the jury commissioners to draw a sixth member of the jury after it was found that Albert McGRIFF, who was drawn as one of the regular panel, had moved to Marshall county to reside. Carl BIDDINGER was selected to fill this vacancy.
While it is not known what the grand jurors are investigating, it is believed they are conducting a probe into the death of Mr. Burton. Persons who were noticed to enter the grand jury room on the second floor of the courthouse, in the main, came from Fulton and the south part of Liberty township.
It is hardly possible that the grand jury will conclude its deliberations before Wednesday or Thursday. Musselman is being held in the county jail on charges of assault and battery with intent to kill, which were preferred by Sheriff Boyd PETERSON after the affray at the Burton farm, which it is said, had its inception over trouble about the division of hogs on the farm after Burton had notified his father-in-law that he was leaving his farm as a tenant.

The badly decomposed body of Emory KOROS, aged 51, was found late Sunday afternoon in his modest six room home at the edge of a large huckleberry marsh, two and one-half miles northeast of Leiters Ford, by South Bend relatives of the victim. It is thought that Koros had been dead for ten days and that he was murdered. The farm is better known as the S. L. EDINGTON place.
The body was found by Margaret VanSLAGER, 2010 Kimble Avenue, South Bend, a niece of the dead man, and her husband Steve VanSLAGER, when they drove to the Koros home Sunday afternoon to visit their relative, who lived alone.
Mr. VanSlager knocked at the door and received no response. He noted a sickening effluvium as soon as he opened the door in the Koros home. Investigating the [odor] VanSlagers found the dead body of their relative lying on the floor of a second story bedroom.
Mr. VanSlager called Dr. Dean STINSON, county coroner, who with Sheriff Boyd PETERSON and Prosecutor Dale POENIX, drove to the Koros home, where they conducted an investigation.
The officers found that a terrible struggle had taken place in the room. Under the body of Koros was his .22 calibre rifle loaded, but which had not been fired. Over the floor of the room was scattered the box of shells of the same calibre as the rifle.
Blood about the room indicated that death had not been instant and that Koros had thrashed around following the firing of the fatal shot. The body was moved to the Lukenbill Mortuary in Leiters Ford, where Dr. Stinson conducted a postmortem.
The examination showed that Koros had died from a bullet which had entered his back below the left shoulder and had emerged through the chest. The bullet had clipped the heart. The bullet had been fired from a gun of much larger calibre than Koros's rifle, thus disputing the theory that he had committed suicide.
The three officers in their reconstruction of the crime believe that Koros was shot as he went to get something out of the closet in the bedroom of his home. His assailant then in an effort to cover up the crime by giving it the appearance of suicide placed Koros' rifle under his body. A number of good fingerprints were taken from the rifle.
John HORVATH, 1012 Kimble Avenue, South Bend, a nephew came to this city yesterday. Horvath operates a tavern in South Bend which was held-up several weeks ago by bandits who obtained a large amount of money. Horvath and Mrs. VanSlager were given permission to move the body to a South Bend undertaking parlor. The body of Koros was in such condition that it had to be placed in a rubber bag to be transported.
Koros was born in Hungary and had been in the United States for thirty-two years. He had resided in South Bend and bore the reputation of having accumulated considerable money. He was for a number of years the collector for "City Life" a Hungarian newspaper published in South Bend. He had worked in the Studebaker plant in South Bend in 1928 and 1929.
Authorities are seeking evidence to support any of three theories that he had been murdered -- that Koros fairly wealthy was shot in a robbery; that he was killed in revenge for some as yet obscure personal grudge or that he fought with some associates over some enterprise thought by officers to have been connected with the illicit liquor traffic. No money was found on Koros or in his home. A few letters written in Hungarian were on his person.
Koros was known as a heavy drinker. In his home Sheriff Peterson, Coroner Stinson and Prosecutor Dale Poenix found a number of empty liquor bottles and a fairly large amount of cracked corn. Reports that the farm had been used for production of illicit liquor were received by officers also it is stated. Search of the marsh about the Koros home was being made Monday in an effort by officers to find any clue that might lead to the solving of the mystery.
Koros came to the farm about one year ago to reside. It is said the farm, which contains 80 acres a large amount of which is covered by the huckleberry marsh was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. VanSLAGER. Koros associated little with his neighbors and seemed rather a man of mystery.
Koros, it is said frequently entertained parties of friends from South Bend, who were Hungarians. Another thing which puzzles officers is that a man who had been so prominently identified with business enterprises in South Bend, as had Koros, why he should come out to a little farm on an infrequently traveled road to reside.
Sheriff Peterson and Prosecutor Poenix went to South Bend today where they were to consult officers there about Koros in an effort to learn something of his past. They also planned to question Koros' friends thinking perhaps they could give them some light as to who might have slain the former South Bend Hungarian.
The place where Koros lived is not far from the farm where Mrs. Mary SINGER and her son Alonzo [SINGER] were murdered one year ago by Charles CLARK of Kokomo. During the past year local officers have had much work to do in connection with murders. The Robert FINKENBINER murder trial was one and the alleged murder of Edgar BURTON by his father-in-law Joseph MUSSELMAN, was another.

James HORNER, aged 80, a former resident of this city, died at his home in Chili Sunday evening after an illness of several weeks due to heart and kidney trouble.

The slaying of Emory KOROS, aged 51, farmer living north of Leiters Ford whose body was found Sunday afternoon by his nephew Steve VanSLAGER of South Bend, is still shrouded in mystery. Death is believed to have occurred ten days prior to the time the body was found.
Services for the deceased were held in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in South Bend Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Because of the badly decomposed condition of the body, the St. Joseph county coroner, refused a permit for a church funeral service. A graveside service, attended by relatives was then held.
Sheriff Boyd PETERSON and Prosecutor Dale POENIX were in South Bend all of Monday in an effort to uncover some leads which might solve the mystery surrounding the death of Koros. The local law enforcement officers were assisted by South Bend city and county officers. A number of Koros' friends were interrogated.
No definite clues as to the slaying have been found and investigators see the possibility of one of three motives, robbery, revenge, or a liquor party aftermath. That the victim was robbed after being slain is evident for no money was found on his person.
Koros, a former collector for a Hungarian newspaper, published in South Bend, was reputed quite wealthy and was thought to have had much money hidden around his humble farm home. Relatives could not find any money when they searched the home after Koros' lifeless body had been found, thus giving credence to the theory that he had been murdered and then robbed.
Koros has lived near Leiters Ford for the past year. He was a bachelor and lived the life of a recluse. He associated little with his neighbors and frequently entertained parties of Hungarians from South Bend.
Mr. Koros was born in Hungary August 16, 1884 and settled in South Bend 32 years ago. He leaves a brother, Joseph KOROS in Hungary and two cousins, Mrs. Margaret VanSLAGER and Joseph HORVATH, both of South Bend.

"In the measureless realm of time, how brief is our earthly stay," for it is written that a thousand years are but a day in eternity. The City of Rochester is today bereft of the temporal presence of an esteemed old citizen, whose daily walk in life was one of continuous honor and rectitude of character. It is this writer's province to proclaim this truth, since the subject of this brief eulogy lived next-door neighbor for a period of over forty-six years. That experience qualifies the statement of his exemplary citizenship beyond any question of doubt. Conviction is that our regret is counterparted by glorious advent to life celestiale, a thought to assuage family grief in the knowledge that his gain should be our glad admission of triumphant entry in that "house not made with hands."
Peter J. STINGLY, son of Frederick and Anna E. MADARY STINGLY, was born at Basil, Ohio, January 18, 1856, entered higher life at his home, 1222 Madison street, Rochester, Ind., 315 a.m. May 19, 1936, aged 80 years, 4 months and 1 day.
The deceased came to Fulton county with his parents and located in Liberty township, near Fulton, when he was a child of ten years. His boyhood comprised the duties and interests incident to farm life, and common school of pioneer days in Liberty township. He attended High School at Logansport and later took a course in business and penmanship in Hall's commercial school at Logansport, walking from home to school at intervals. It is a matter of interest that he taught his first term of school in Liberty township in his young manhood and continued as teacher for a number of years.
March 21, 1880, Peter J. STINGLY and Mary A. EIKELBERNER were united in marriage, at the home of the late Andrew OLIVER, near Mud Creek, road 25. To their union two daughters were born, Mrs. Guy A. FISH, South Bend and Mrs. Walter MASON, residing in the home. Two granddaughters, Mrs. Arthur WILSON and Elizabeth FISH, and one great-granddaughter, Joyce Ann WILSON of South Bend. No other near relative, except his wife and one nephew at Peru, survive.
Mr. Stingly was an honored and respected member of Fredonia Lodge No. 122, Knights of Pythias, thus continuing faithfully to the last.
For a number of years he was a member of Citizens' Band, until his length of years and business interests precluded his pleasure in that line.
About the year 1888 he was elected as Fulton County Surveyor on the Democratic ticket, which trust he filled with great credit to himself and satisfaction to the electorate. At a succeeding election he was succeeded by a Republican in a party "land slide," following his service of six years, after which he purchased the abstract business of the late Hugh M. [STEPHENSON] and Rome C. STEPHENSON, in which he prospered up to time of his demise. In all activities and contact with business and social life he was popularly known as an honored citizen, a gracious neighbor, loving husband and indulgent father, of whom no greater compliment can be voiced than to say he was a noble man.
Funeral rites will be conducted at the Stingly home at 2:30 o'clock, Thursday, Rev. T. J. STOVALL in charge. Interment at I.O.O.F. cemetery. Friends desiring to witness the remains are welcome to call at the home up to the hour of funeral ceremony.

Within scarcely over 24 hours following his demise, which occurred at his farm home in Aubbenaubbee township, three o'clock Tuesday afternoon, Henry H. MOON, 84, was laid to rest in the Moon cemetery late this afternoon. Mr. Moon's death was attributed to complication inherent with advanced years. The funeral rites which were followed to the letter of the decedent's request by his son Frank W. MOON, were similar to those of the early pioneer days.
Following the services which were held at the Sharon church, four neighbors of Mr. Moon carried his body which was laid in a home-made yellow pine casket to the adjacent Moon cemetery which was founded by the deceased's father in the year of 1851. There in the Moon family plot where lay his ancestors and deceased members of the Moon family, the casket was lowered into a home-made pine box, as relatives and friends paid their final tribute to one of the few remaining home-spun type of pioneers of Aubbeenaubbee township.
Through Mr. Moon's request a neighbor, Rev. William S. RAINEY, who several years ago retired from a Baptist pastorage in Kentucky, pronounced the funeral oration and reviewed the interesting life of this early pioneer. The outline of Rev. Rainey's sermon was most simple in its theme and bore out the expressions of a close friend and neighbor rather than that of the clergy.
Henry H. Moon, who succumbed on the farm on which he was born 84 years, 5 months and 22 days ago, was the son of William and Melinna (LEE) MOON. His early boyhood and youth was spent on the farm. For seven years he resided in Rochester where he followed the occupation of a painter. After this brief stay in this city he returned to the home place, which is situated about ten miles northwest of Rochester, where he has since resided.
In the year of 1877 he was united in wedlock to Catherine WENTZEL, the ceremony being performed at the home of the bride's parents by Rev. JONES, who at that time was minister of the Methodist church.
Mr. Moon was a staunch Democrat throughout his entire life served as trustee of Aubbeenaubbee township from 1909 to 1914 inclusive. He took an active interest in the affairs of his community and his political party, and his word and opinion on the affairs of his township were held in high regard by his neighbors and friends.
Mr. Moon's father who was one of the earlier settlers in the western sections of Fulton county passed away in the year of 1891 and his mother Melinna (LEE) MOON preceded in death in 1899. Other members of his immediate family who preceded him in death were, three infants, a brother George W. [MOON], who died in 1916, a sister Ellen LUNSFORD who passed away in 1917, Sidney R. MOON, of Rochester, who succumbed in 1933, Dewitt C. [MOON], succumbed in 1929, and Mrs. Mary Jane BRUCE, who succumbed in 1930. Henry H. Moon was the last member of the family of William and Melinna Moon.
The survivors are the widow, Catherine MOON, a daughter Bell MOON and a son Frank W. MOON. The latter had asssisted in the management of the Moon farm during his father's illness which extended over a period of several months. Frank W. Moon is well known in the Democratic circles through the old 13th and present 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, as he was twice a candidate for the nomination of congressman of these districts. He was defeated in primaries, however, on each of these occasions by Messrs. PERKINS and DURGAN.
The four pall bearers who bore the light weight pine casket to the grave were John JAMISON, Sr.; John JAMISON, Jr.; Ira BUTT and Leonard SHRIVER, all friends and neighbors of the deceased.
Although in following out the request of the aged man for a simple pioneer funeral the brevity of time did not permit news of the death becoming current through the columns of the press a large number of friends had gathered at the Moon home early Wednesday morning as the news of the passing had been telephoned throughout the community. Mr. Thomas HARRISON, undertaker of Kewanna, had charge of the funeral arrangements.
In an interview with Gilbert CORBETT, who supervised and assisted in building the pine casket he stated he did not receive the request of building the coffin until rather late Tuesday afternoon. He then drove into Leiters Ford, secured the yellow soft pine boards, and returned to his home immediately started the construction of the coffin. He was assisted in the carpentry work by Lamont GUYER, Ira BUTT, Simon HICKLE and W. M. LUNSFORD.
According to Mr. Corbett the casket was completed at 9:30 o'clock Wednesday morning. The interior of the casket which was trimmed in snow-white, long cloth was done by Mrs. Corbett, Mrs. Hickle and Mrs. W. M. Lunsford, all of whom were neighbors of the deceased pioneer.
Despite the limited time Mr. Corbett had in making the coffin the wood-work and designing presented a most trim appearance and carried through the lines of simplicity which were so desired by the one who was to take his eternal rest in it.
A photograph which was taken of the home-made casket just after it was completed in the Corbett barnlot, will appear in an early issue of The News-Sentinel.

Ill health was held responsible for the death of William Frank WAGONER, aged 78, well known resident of this city residing at 606 North Main Street, who committed suicide by hanging himself in a room of his home sometime during Tuesday night.
Wagoner's body was found by his uncle, William EWING at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning, when Mr. Ewing went to call on Wagoner as had been his daily custom. Mr. Ewing called Dr. Dean STINSON, coroner, and Sheriff Boyd PETERSON, who cut down the body.
Mr. Wagoner was better known by his many friends as Frank WAGONER. He had evidently planned his death with much precision. He placed a stick over a register in an upstairs bedroom. Around this stick and down through the register he dropped a rope which had been made by twisting wrapping cord.
Mr. Wagoner then placed the noose about his neck, stood on a chair and swung off. He could have saved his life had he so desired as the foot which touched the floor was trailing. Death was due to strangulation, Dr. Stinson held.
The deceased lived alone. He had been in ill health for the past five weeks at which time he suffered a sun stroke while cutting Canada thistles on his farm near this city.
Mrs. William EWING had taken Mr. Wagoner's supper to him last evening at 6 o'clock. She was the last person to see him alive. Wagoner at that time conversed with Mrs. Ewing about his financial affairs.
Mr. Wagoner had no financial worries as he was the owner of a large farm and $290 in money was found in a pocketbook which he had secreted in his bed. It is believed that he has other securities.
The deceased was a life long resident of Fulton county. He was born on a farm near Athens on July 1, 1858. His parents were James and Jennie WAGONER. His father was a Dunkard minister. He was married to Kate HARE. This marriage was dissolved by a divorce.
Mr. Wagoner, for a number of years was the night watchman at the Rochester Bridge Company. Since the closing of the plant, he had never had any regular employment. William Ewing is his only immediate survivor.

Albert W. BITTERS, aged 76, veteran published and editor of the Rochester Republican for many years died at his home, 1216 South Madison Street at 4 o'clock Friday morning, from a kidney infection. He had been in ill health for the past six months and unconscious for two days prior to his death.
Mr. Bitters' end was hastened by over-exertion while marching with members of the A. H. Skinner Spanish-American War Veterans Post of this city at the state convention of the organization at Vincennes in June. Largely through Mr. Bitters' efforts the 1937 encampment of the veterans was brought to this city.
The deceased was born in Peru on August 19, 1859 and was the son of Thomas Major and Marie BITTERS. He came to this city in 1873 when his father purchased the "Rochester Union Spy." This paper later became the Rochester Republican and in turn was merged with The News-Sentinel.
Mr. Bitters, according to his autobiography which is part of this obituary started his work in a newspaper office at the age of fifteen when he became the "devil" in his father's plant. Mr. Bitters was noted for the strength of his convictions in the penning of his editorials. He was an ardent Republican and staunch believer in prohibition. He twice served as postmaster of the Rochester postoffice.
Mr. Bitters was possessed of a keen mind as to dates. He could recall readily incidents of an early day. He was the publisher of a two volumes of biographies of residents of an earlier day in Rochester and Fulton county under the title of "Home Folks. Persons who own these volumes prize them highly as they give a clear picture of Fulton county since it was created in 1829 as a governmental unit.
Mr. Bitters was married to Miss Emma SHELTON and they celebrated their fifty-third wedding anniversary on April 10. Survivors are the widow, son Harry BITTERS of this city, daughter Mrs. Talmadge DILLON, Hyattsville, Md., sister Mrs. Marguerite MILLER of this city who was associated with her brother in the publishing of the Rochester Republican, two grandchildren, John Allen [DILLON] and Virginia Alice DILLON and a nephew Earle A. MILLER of this city.
The deceased was twice master of the Rochester Masonic Lodge and he made the tenets of that organization his creed. He was a regular attendant at all lodge meetings and either as master or in other ways he assisted in the raising of many young men of this vicinity to the degree of a Master Mason.
Mr. Bitters was a member of the Rochester Chapter No. 70 of the Order of Eastern Star and the Past Matrons and Past Patrons Association of said chapter. He also was an honorary member of the A. H. Skinner Spanish-American War Veterans Post and a member of the Indiana Republican Editorian Association.
An autobiography of the deceased publisher and citizen which was compiled for the 10th anniversary issue of The News-Sentinel of December fifth, 1934, is now republished as it not only presents exacting obituary data but also gives an insight into the inimitable writings of the ex-publisher.
"I was born at Peru,Indiana, in a little cottage within a stone throw of the Miami county court house, August 19, 1859, son of Thomas Major and Maria V. E. (ROSE) BITTERS. Father was a native of Hampton county, Penn., and Mother of Fairfield county, Ohio.
"October 9, 1973, Father bought the Rochester Union Spy, weekly newspaper, of William H. MATTINGLY, and on 13th of that month I commenced my trade of printing, at present date recording over sixty-one years from office "devil," stick and rule, press and type, to editorial pencil in 1905, seving the old Daily and Weekly Republican in that capacity until October, 1923, my sister, Mrs. Marguerite MILLER, associate editor, when the machinations of politics crucified the paper and actually buried its title. Providence has graced my way with health and strength, that it is my distinction to have experienced more than two-thirds of the entire newspaper history of Rochester, during my years of service at printing. From 1859 to 1934, it will be observed in the parlance of our popular American game, I am safe on third base, and trying to steal a point on Father Time to make a home run before I quit this mundane sphere.
"In 1880, temporarily out of a job, my penchant was toward the profession of medicine, and was accepted as a student in the office of the late Dr. Cornelius HECTOR. However, financial reverses prevented entry in Scudder Medical College, at Cincinnati, so I shed both my coat and aspiration and returned to first love, the art preservation. The printing office practically constitutes my university, college and public school education, for ne'er a day was spent in school since May, 1879, leaving sixth grade at age of between twelve and thirteen years, thus my training has been in the school of hard knocks, taught by abrasion against the rough spots of life.
"During 1888 I was employed as job printer in the Rochester Sentinel office, then located over Dawson's drug store, Uncle Tully BITTERS, editor. While there employed, April 10, 1883 Miss Emma E. SHETON and Albert W. BITTERS were united in marriage, our golden wedding celebrated last year. We have ten children, Harry S. BITTERS, at our home, and Mrs. Clarence A. DILLON, Washington, D.C. Their children, John Allen [DILLON] and Virginia Alyce DILLON, represent our hope and pride in our declining days.
"In November, 1921, I was appointed Postmaster, commissioned and assumed the post on January 1, 1922, serving out more than two commissions, the first bearing the signature of President Warren G. Harding, and the second by President Calvin Coolidge, covering nine years, three months, eleven days, retiring for Howard W. DuBOIS. Since leaving the postal service, my job has been working for Doolittle & Setmore, the most arduous task in all my active life.
"My affiliations are memberships in Rochester Lodge No. 79, F. & A. M., Rochester Chapter No. 70, Order Eastern Star, and Past Matrons' and Past Patrons' Association of same Chapter. Politically, I am a steadfast Republican of the Abraham Lincoln type, unafraid, nor ashamed to declare my lack of confidence in the "New Deal." Socially, I am proud of the many friends held near and dear, of all differing convictions, and feel that no enemies seek to do harm to me or mine. For these and every other blessing I am thankful to Almighty God, for peace and tranquility of our humble home, and respect of our neighbors, relatives and associates."
The exact date and time for the funeral arrangements had not been completed at the time The News-Sentinel went to press as word was being awaited from the daughter Mrs. Dillon. In all probability the services will be held from the Madison Avenue Christian Church Sunday afternoon with burial in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. At Mr. Bittersd' request the Rochester Masonic Lodge will be in charge.

ALBERT W. BITTERS
[editorial]

Early today, under laden skies, Albert W. BITTERS, prominent citizen and dean of the Fulton county newspaper guild, signed the journalistic "30" to a useful and interesting career. A career so fraught with trials, adversities and measures of success, that Albert W. Bitters during the past score or more of years was looked upon more as an institutional force than as an individual.
Mr. Bitters possessed that enviable and rare trait of garnering facts and data concerning local, state and world-wide affairs and assimilating and retaining an ever-growing store of knowledge which made his counsel of invaluable worth.
In his newspaper career, Mr. Bitters, the publisher, grounded his feet solidly in whatever cause he deemed just and his virile writings left no room for doubt or quibbling as to where the author stood on civic, political and religious issues. His pen was always an unerring force for the betterment of Rochester and Fulton county and although adversities, which were experienced in the publishing field in later years, finally terminated his beloved newspaper, The ROCHESTER REPUBLICAN, the services of Editor Bitters were constantly solicited by his successors. His brilliant and home-spun style of journalism was thoroughly appreciated and always revered by the people of this community.
A few years after Editor Bitters relinquished the helm of the old Republican newspaper, a belated reward in the form of an appointment to the postmastership of the City of Rochester was bestowed upon him by the Republican party. In his two-term regime in this important post, his duties as a government employee were carried through in a most efficient and courteous manner which brought highest commendations from government officials and townsfolk, alike.
In all of Albert Bitters' buriness, fraternal and social activities in a community where he spent over three score years, it is just to say he was a gentleman, a champion for all less fortunate than he and a public-spirited force which never faltered under greatest of pressure.
A man has been called, one whom will be sorely missed by the entire community. And thus,

Albert W. Bitters, may the "30" which we publishers affix to your earthly associations never signify and "ending" to our memoirs of your honorable, courageous true American-type citizenship.

IN MEMORY OF ALBERT W. BITTERS
by A. B. Green

Each day we live, life becomes more of a mystery. In the sudden passing of Brother Albert W. BITTERS from our midst, Rochester and community has lost a true friend. It will not be the same not to meet his smiling countenance and anjoy the hearty greeting of his hand clasp. It can be truthfully said he was a man of high ideals and sterling worth. While we have in every community some who are builders and others who would tear down the moral fabric of society, Albert W. Bitters never faltered in championing the cause he believed to be right .
No night was too dark or road too long that would prevent him rendering assistance to a friend in need. He was a Master Mason and exemplified its teachings in his daily life. He was also historian and an able advisor of the Order of the Eastern Star. When special public notices were needed, it was his pen that furnished the copy and always in a pleasing way.
It can be said he wrought faithfully the work placed upon the tressel board of life. To say he was without faults would be untrue, he was human, none are perfect, but he always tried to do his best. His death was untimely and his brethren mourn.
Now that life's toils are o'er, and his frail bark has touched the shore, we believe the Eastern Star has met the Western Sun, at the close of life's day with a race well run.

HE IS NOT DEAD
by Marguerite Miller

In the passing of my beloved brother, Albert W. BITTERS, many things come to me of his worthwhile life, some things so fine and beautiful he kept carefully hidden except to those who could understand.
I am deeply grateful for the many loving things said of him by his multitute of friends; of the flowers sent with expressions of respect and reverence; of the comforting sermon delivered over his earthly remains; for the songs and music that made the last hour seem less sad. But to me he left an unspoken and unwritten message of the place to which he was going.
It was not of a place far away, or one of mystery, but a place of home going, of such unparalleled beauty and supernal glory as only our Heavenly Father can prepare for His children when they grow tired of this life and want to go back home.

He often said "I am not afraid to die." And once he said "There will be but one question I will dread to answer: 'Albert how did you spend your time? Did you help others to know of the Life Beyond? Did you fear to talk of the Great Adventure all must take? Were you too busy with the trivial things to show some pilgrim the Way?'"
How well I can answer these questions, for he did tell many of the things he knew of the Life Beyond, but not until he was asked, not until he knew there was a burning desire in the mind of the one seeking truth, then he would say:
"Why there is nothing to fear, for death is but the natural sequence of this exursion of life. It is the taking off your old coat and putting on a new one to enter a room more cheerful - where life is a song. We are in the world now but our sight is too clouded to see its wonderous beauty, and our ears too dull to hear its music. But when the Death Angel calls we slip out of the body and become conscious of what we were not conscious of before, we are finer and have greater understanding."
So when this brother of mine closed his eyes in sleep, I know he awoke in that etheric world that Holmes has said "Has a Light never seen on land or sea," and where many called to him, "Good Morning, Albert."
It was a wonderful Home Going! What a reunion with those he had followed to the very door to the Beyond. What rare adventure is now his, to walk among the stars and see the operation of God's great workshop? What companionship with rare souls of literature and art, of invention and discovery. Ah! This is the day when his dreams have come true. Where has he gone? To the Golden City and who knows but tomorrow or the next day we too may journey on. Time goes so fast.
Do you remember what the Death Angel said in that wornderful story "Death Takes a Holiday?' He said, "Do not fear me, for when you know me I am beautiful and some day I will take you by the hand and lead you to the very gates of Paradise and what is Beyond is too wonderful for words."
Albert has gone through the gates and found that beauty. That is the message he sends as I write. So the peace that passes all understanding is now mine.

Citizens of Rochester and the surrounding country were shocked when word was passed around that J. F. DYSERT had died, the end coming Saturday evening at near 6 o'clock, at his home on West Eighth street, after a somewhat busy day, for although he was not feeling as well as susual, he went about his daily affairs and at about 4:30 o'clock was at his place of business, the RACKET clothing store. The end came after all human help was exhausted and medical skill had failed to relieve his intense pain.
Joseph F. DYSERT, son of the lage George W. and Sarah Ellen (REEBUCK) DYSERT was born in Mercer county, Ohio, January 23, 1869. He grew up and was educated in the public schools of Rockford, Ohio, and in early manhood entered the clothing business with his father. In 1893 he was elected to the office of county clerk of Mercer county on the Independent ticket and served two terms. During this time he was united in marriage with Miss Laura A. PONTIUS, of Rockford, who until the hour of his death was his faithful companion and advisor in all of his subsequent business life.
In the latter part of February, 1907, Mr. and Mrs. Dysert became citizens of Rochester, he purchasing the GUTHRIE clothing store located at that time in the room now occupied by the Farmers & Merchants Bank and later moved to the present location in the Masonic building. Realizing his health was not up to standard, he called to his assistance two young men, Chas. PYLE and R. C. JOHNSON, who became partners in the store and relieved Mr. Dysert of much of his previous duties in that respect. But he could not be idle, the urge to do and to be was ever present, so he became the builder of what was then known as the K. G. theatre which is now occupied by KARN'S Coffee Shop and KARN'S Hotel. His business expansion did not stop there, he bought property in several different cities east and west, and acquired farm lands in Fulton county in which he took great interest. His latest venture was to remodel the Boston Store after a destructive fire laid that room and others in dire waste. Today the Boston Store is housed in a building that would be a credit to a much larger city and J. F. Dysert was the leading spirit who changed the map of Main street, in that section of the street, from that of a country town to the present metropolitan appearaance.
In everything he did for himself, he did something for Rochester that would add to its attractiveness and create a better impression on strangers visiting the city.
Few people really knew Mr. Dysert, for there was a side he never willingly displayed, a side that had to do with generosity and high ideals. There-although he had men constantly employed in one capacity or another, he never took advantage of the so-called depression, he hired them for their worth and paid them what they earned, always giving a little more than demanded. Few knew that during the World War a large-sized check went to the American boys fighting in Belgium. The writer of this article was told this as a profound secret, having stumbled on the truth in her capacity as a newspaper writer. Few know of other transactions of like character, for his right hand carefully guarded good deeds of the left. All was done in an unasuming way as part of the day's march.
There was a humorous side of the deceased that enjoyed a joke or a good yarn, and his ability as a character reader and imitator was almost uncanny. As for religion he claimed no other guide than a fervent desire to do right for the sake of right doing. Honest himself to the last penny, or moment of time, he demanded the same of others. Loyal in friendships, he appreciated the same loyalty from others. In fact his philosophy of life made him a four-square citizen, fearing neither the present nor the future, for out of the mass of life's mysteries, he wove for himself the fabric of idealism, of beauty as he saw it in a beautiful sunset, or the outworking of a plan that meant a better building or a finer place to work. In all of this he was silently conscious of Divinity in its highest manifestation in man and nature, in the good he found in living.
Politically, J. F. Dysert was an outspoken Republican, yet he sounded the depths of all political parties, and held fast to what he believed was fair and honest.
A good citizen has gone onward. He has left a monument of more than brick and stone, he has left with us a masonry of an active life that constructed but never wilfully destroyed; of one who asked no reward, expected no praise, wanted no eulogy. One who only asked to live to make the world more worthwhile, a better place for better men. His farewell here was "Good Night," his salutation There will be "Good Morning."
The survivors are Mrs. Dysert, a half-brother, O. W. DYSERT of Toledo, Ohio and two nieces also of Toledo.
A short service will be conducted Tuesday morning at nine o'clock at the house, Rev. STOVALL in charge, then the remains will be conveyed to Rockford, Ohio where the funeral proper will take place at 2 o'clock Eastern Standard time, with Rev. T. L. STOVALL officiating. Interment will be made in the Rockford cemetery. -- By Marguerite MILLER.

J. F. DYSERT
[editorial]

Rochester and community have suffered an irreparable loss through the sudden demise of one of its foremost citizens, Joseph F. DYSERT. "J.F." as the deceased was familiarly known to his legion of business associates and friends was a public spirited, progressive type of citizen who proceeded in his methodical-like manner, to do things, big things, for his community, and sought no fan-fare after having accomplished his varied tasks.
Mr. Dysert possessed the keenest of business acumen and constantly forged ahead with his plan for civic improvement in uncanny wisdom which yielded ideals into realism and his constructive program was not confined immediately to his home vicinity, but extended throughout numerous sections of the United States.
During his residency in Rochester, he kept in constant touch with all things pertaining to the city's welfare, and gave unstintingly to every worthy project, yet he abhored the giving of any publicity in this regard. He took a firm stand in political as well as civic affairs and his associates were never in doublt as to where he stood. In all his vast commercial activities, Mr. Dysert found time to enjoy the acquaintance of not only his business associates, and his neighbors, but with those in all walks of life. He was a friend to mankind, and thoroughly enjoyed contact with his fellow-man. Joseph F. Dysert and his work will long be remembered in this community.

A shiny new rifle in the hands of its 13 year old owner brought sorrow into the home of the John STRAND family who reside on a farm fourteen miles west of this city near Monterey when Evelyn STRAND, aged nine, died in the Woodlawn Hospital at 6 o'clock Monday morning.
Evelyn was accidentaly shot by her brother Sunday afternoon shortly before four o'clock. The lad had secured the new rifle Saturday and Sunday afternoon he was shooting at various targets in the yard at his home.
Evelyn and her four sisters were playing within the house. There was a crash of broken glass and the girl fell to the floor writhing in pain. Her parents rushed to the side of the screaming child and soon learned that she had suffered an injury in the abdomen but at first did not realize what had happened.
An examination of the window to the room in which the Strand children were playing cleared the mystery as a hole through the glass bore evidence that it had been pierced by a bullet.
Dr. A. J. KELSEY of Monterey, was called and after an examination brought the injured Evelyn to the Woodlawn Hospital where an operation was performed immediately. It was found that the bullet had pierced the child's intestines in twenty places.
Lowell [STRAND], who with his parents and four sisters are the only immediate survivors of the dead girl, recalls having fired his gun at a target in the general direction of the Strand home but did not realize until attracted by the commotion within the house that the bullet had gone astray and struck his sister.

Charles N. HILEMAN, of near Disko, and his wife Emma [HILEMAN] were dead today, both deaths occurring within a day's time.

Mrs. Hileman died Saturday morning following an illness of several months due to intestinal trouble. On Sunday morning her husband, while attending to duties about the farm, was stricken with heart attack and died almost immediately. The previous death of his wife and subsequent grieving is believed to have hurried death.
Emma Hileman, who was 65 years of age was born in Ohio, the daughter of George and Elizabeth SNURE. Her husband, a life long resident in the Disko community, was born near Disko, the son of Adams and Lucinda HILEMAN. Emma Snure and Charles Hileman were united in marriage in January, 1892, at Disko.

Star City, Ind., Dec. 18. -- Selecting his wife's birthday for the act, John F. BIRD, 76, ex-farmer and late garage employee, ended his life in the barn at the home of his son, Inman [BIRD], here Thursday afternoon by firing the charge of a shotgun into his heart.
The tragedy was discovered by the son when he returned to his home about 5 o'clock and found the body of his father crumpled in a chair in the building where the aged man's furniture was stored.
Dr. C. E. LINTON, Pulaski county coroner, was summoned and estimated that death had taken place approximately three hour previous.
For a number of years Mr. Bird operated a Pulaski county farm and later was a bookkeeper in a Binns garage at Winamac. His health failed a few years ago and since the death of his wife he has made his home with the son, Inman, here.
Mrs. Inman BIRD reported to the coroner that shortly before 2 o'clock she and her baby went for an automobile ride but that the aged man preferred to remain at home. She said before that hour Mr. Bird had been playing with the baby and appeared in excellent spirits.
Failing health and brooding over the death of his wife are believed to have lead to the tragedy.
Going to the barn where his furniture was in storage, Mr. Bird secured his favorite chair, placed it on the floor and seated himself within it. Indications are that he placed the loaded weapon between his knees with the muzzle of the gun against his chest and then used a small stick with which to push the trigger.
