"SPANISH WAR VETERANS - ORGANIZED IN SHELBY LASY NIGHT; OFFICERS CHOSEN AND CHARTER APPLIED FOR - A meeting was held last night in the I.O.O.F. hall at 7:30 to organize a camp of the Spanish-American war veterans.  Chairman Fulton called the meeting to order and Rev. Hackenberg gave the address of the evening.  He gave a splendid patriotic talk to the veterans of the Spanish war and urged them to join this organization as a tie that would bind these men of former common trials and present like interests together.  The membership fee was fixed at $1.00 and the dues at $2.00 per year, to be paid quarterly.  The name decided upon was Shelby Camp United Spanish War Veterans.  The number will be given them by the headquarters office when the charter is sent.  Following this officers were elected as follows: Commander, W. J. Fulton; Senior Vice Commander, Freeman Conley; Junior Vice Commander, Clyde Conley; Officer of the Day, Joseph Wert; Officer of the Guard, Guy Wooley; Trustee for one year, Frank Hannrahan; Trustee for two years, Charles McGregor; Trustee for three years, Fred Stiles.  The following officers were appointed by the Commander: Adjutant, Charles McGregor; Quartermaster, Herb Beth; Chaplain, J. C. Prewitt; Historian, Guy Frankfather; Sergeant Major, Frank Bender; Quartermaster Sergeant, Sam Moffatt; Color Sergeants, S. L. Sellers and William Karg; Musician, Charles Lannert.  A committee composed of the following was appointed to arrange for the institution of the camp: Clyde Conley, Chas. McGregor and Guy Wooley.  It was decided that the camp meet the third Tuesday in each month.  Here are the charter members of the Shelby Camp U. S. W. V.; W. J. Fulton, F. E. Conley, Guy Frankfather, Clyde Conley, Fred Stiles, Chas. McGregor, Guy Wooley, E. L. Eckis, J. E. Wert, S. L. Sellers, Frank Hannrahan, Herb Beth, J. C. Prewitt, J. M. Stewart, C. H. Lennart, Frank Bender, S. L. Moffatt, and George W. Heiser.  David Young was made an honorary member of the camp, he being on the point of death and unable to attend the meeting but signified his willingness to enter as a member.  At 10:30 o'clock lunch was served and the meeting adjourned until the third Tuesday in next month.  The entire minutes and charter application will be sent to A. F. Rupnow, the Department Commander in Cleveland who will be here at the next meeting to muster the local camp into the organization.  Now that the Spanish War Veterans are organized in Shelby a new military remnant is formed and another movement for better government and better laws.  It has taken Shelby Spanish War Veterans a long time to get together on this subject and now that they are organized a few of them will have to be mustered out of the camps they formerly belonged to before they are recognized as a member of the Shelby camp.  The local camp expects to increase their membership to over 30 within two meetings."

"FRED HOLLENBAUGH SHOT IN THE FOOT BY A RIFLE BALL LAST SATURDAY - Fred Hollenbaugh, the son of Henry Hollenbaugh of North Broadway, and aged about 16 years, is at home with a serious wound to his foot.  Last Saturday he and a brother went hunting.  In the woods they met a youngman whom they did not know.  The young man had a rifle.  The three boys sat down on a log and were talking about their prowess as dead shots.  The young man with the rifle after telling how good he could shoot aimed at a piece of a stick and was about to fire at it.  As he pulled the trigger he closed his eyes and the gun was pulled out of its true aim at the mark.  It pointed at the foot of Fred Hollenbaugh and was discharged in this position.  The bullet was only a .22 short, but it had sufficient power behind it to bury it in the flesh between the third and fourth toes.  Fred managed to walk back to town and Dr. Love was summoned and extracted the bullet.  It has made a sore foot for the young man, but barring blood poison or tetanus, he will be able to get around in a few days and to go to work a short time later."

"CONTINUED ILL HEALTH - CAUSED FRANK L. HOLLENBAUGH TO ATTEMPT TO END HIS LIFE THIS MORNING - Frank L. Hollenbaugh, aged 66 years, living on the Shelby-Plymouth road just north of Marsh Run shot himself this morning about 7 o'clock.  While Mrs. Hollenbaugh was at the barn he secured a revolver and stepping in front of a mirror in the living room he placed the muzzle on the revolver to his temple and pulled the trigger.  The bullet entered his head at the temple and came out above the eye.
He fell to the floor and his daughter who was in an adjoining room hearing the report ran to the living room.  Seeing her father on the floor with the gun in his hand she realized what had happened and ran to the barn for her mother.
When Mrs. Hollenbaugh entered the room Frank was still conscious and told her not to bother about taking him to the hospital.  The Sutter invalid coach was quickly summoned and the injured man was in the hospital receiving attention with half an hour after the accident.  The bullet was found on the floor of the living room having past through his head.
At the hospital he is conscious only a part of the time and there is not a great deal of hope for his recovery.
Mr. Hollenbaugh has lived in and around Shelby practically all his life and was a highly respected citizen with a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.  His rash act is due to ill health and being despondent over his condition.  He has been sick since last fall and was at the hospial several weeks for treatment.  He did not improve as he hoped and the work on the farm caused him to worry.  His continued ill health and worry caused him to take this rash step to end it all.
Mr. Hollenbaugh is a member of the Shelby Lodge No. 350 F. & A.M., and served the local lodge as Worshipful Master for several terms. He had many staunch friends in Shelby who realize that his physical condition brought about his attempt to take his life."

"LANDED IN JAIL - While on her way home from Shiloh Tuesday morning about 9 o'clock, Rose White, the 15-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. N. White, a prominent farmer living about a mile and a half south of the village, was accosted by a tramp who made an indecent exposure of his person and was about to make a criminal assault but was frightened off.  The girl ran home and notified her parents, who telephoned to Shiloh.  The fellow had gone towards town and on arrival there was arrested by Marshal Dickerson.  He was identified by the girl and at first claimed innocence but later changed his plea to guilty.  Squire Pittenger bound him over to the grand jury and the marshal took him to Mansfield the same afternoon.  The fellow gave his name as Charles Morgan."

"THE AUTOMOBILE - FACTORY WILL DOUBLE ITS CAPACITY AT ONCE - The demand for the Darling automobiles manufactured by the Beardsley & Hubbs company, has been so great, that the company have concluded they would be justified in enlarging their capacity from 2 or 3 per week to 6 per week.  This will necessitate more room and an increase of the force from 40 men to 150.  Our Shelby men have promptly taken enough stock to guarantee the enterprise plenty of cash to swing the business and everything looks exceedingly favorable for a big winter's work.  The factories of Shelby without exception are all very busy.  Orders are plenty and if the coal strike does not compel a shut down, the winter of 1902-03 will be one eminently satisfactory to all our enterprises."
