proved very successful. The church
was well nilea with parents and

in a manner befitting much older
heads and winning the hearty ap

UNION MAN HAS
VERY CLOSE CALL
Frank Eaton, Residing Southeast of
Union is Badly Shocked as Result
of Lightning Bolt Striking Barn
Frank Eaten, one of the farmers
residing southeast of Uaion had a
very narrow escape from cath about
5 o'clock Monday afternoon when a
bolt of lightning struck, the barn on
the fariH and kucoked him uncon
scious for several hours. Mr. Eaton
was coming to the barn with his
horses having completed work in the
field, and seeing the storm clouds
rolling up decided to tt the ani
mals in shelter before the storm
burst. He just reached the barn
when a sudden lightning bolt struck
the structure and hurled Mr. Eaton
some distance and rendered him un
conscious and several of the horses
were also knocked down by the ef
fects of the lightning. The roof of
the barn was splintered somewhat by
the lightning but fortunately the
building was not fired from the ef
fects of the bolt.
Mr. Eaton was carried by members
cf the family to the house and Dr.
J. F. Brendel'of Murray called to
look after the case and it was not
urftil five hours later that the patient
regained consciousness and is still
feeling the effects of the shock, but
is thought that he will suffer no
serious effects from the experience.
The Ball Uame Last Sunday
There was a good siza crowd of
interested base ball fans present at
the opening of the game last Sunday
when Umpire Fred Clark called
"Play ball!" The game was between
Union and a team from Eagle, and
during the early stages thereof gave
nromise of being an . extraordinary
battle, neither side scoring during
the first four innings. In the fifth
inning, on account of the dense foli
age the ball became obscured and
was not found until two runs were
cored by the visitors.
Throughout the game was an ex
'tllent one and the final tally was

DEMOS SEE SUCCESS
LOOM UPON HORIZON
Vice President Marshall Thinks the
Republicans are Not So Well
Pleased with Harding
San Francisco. June 1".. That the
republican leaders are less well pleas
ed with the nomination of Senator
Warren G. Harding for the presi
dency tonight than they were last
Saturday was declared by Vice Presi
dent Thomas R. Marshall on his ar
rival here tonight to attend the
democratic national convention.
The vice president added that he
was not a candidate for the presi
dency but. on the contrary was about
to retire from politics. He declared
that the republicans were in error
if they assumed the election of Sen
ator Harding was a foregone con
clusion and said that President Wil
son did not want a third term, but
couid be nominated and elected for
one if he did.
Of Senator Harding's candidacy
the vice president said:
"The republicans are not so well
pleased now as they were on Sat
urday night. Personally I have high
regard for Senator Harding. I would
do anything for him except vote for
"The republicans are making the
mistake of their lives in thinking of
the November election as a fore
gone conclusion and of the democrats
as a disorganized, defeated party.
They are going to find us very much
alive in November."
Lavish Expenditure Decried
Mr. Marshall decried lavish ex
penditures of money in connection
with presidential campaigns. It was
"disheartening" he said, adding that
he regretted "the republicans were
not the only guilty ones."
ttOf the democratic convention and
his own part as . a delegate in it.
the vice president said, "I am here
to promote peace and ood will
among the delegates at this coming
convention." He said so far as tht
convention was concerned ' there is
no Irish question." and of prohibi
tion enforcement he declared that
"Nothing is so detrimental to -the
country as the passage of laws and
the ignoring of those same laws."
Mr. Marshall's reference to his re
tirement was in answer to an inter
viewer's inquiry whether he wus a
candidate for the presidential nomi
nation. It was:
"I am an old man who has torn
his hair for Bryan, slaved for Parker
and done his hardest for Wilson,
and I am about ready to retire from
RENEW PUSH FOR COX
Columbus. O.. June 1 ."-.Now that
an Ohioan has been chosen the stand
ard bearer of the republican party.
Ohio democrats are redoubling their
efforts to obtain another honor for
the buckeye Mate by having Gover
nor James M. Cox selected by the
San Francisco convention as the one
to lead their party. No sooner had
Senator Harding's nomination bfen
assured than former Governor Camp-,
bell, an Ohio delegate at large to
the democratic national convention,
began preparation cf a circular let
ter to all democrats setting forth
why Governor Cox should be nom
inated. "Governor Cox can carry Ohio.
What other candidate con match this
certainty with even a probability?"
the letter declares.
