The junior high school declamatory contest held in the auditorium of the high school Thursday afternoon was of more than passing interest in that it was the last exercise held by any of the classes of the school while Prof. Edgar L. Morphet was principal, and for that fact that an addiitonal number were present to attend the con test and also the farewell reception which was afterward tendered Prof. Morphet. First and second honors were awarded to girls and boys in the contest, Pauline Jones winning first place and Eunice DeWeerd second, for the g,irls, while Hugh Winslow was first for the boys and James Nolder second. Immediately following the contest the reception was held in the gymnasium which was attended by the faculty and students. The faculty and spokesmen for the different classes paid Prof. Morphet the high tribute his three years' work and association with Fairmount school deserved in the talks given, and Prof. Morphet responded with words of deepest appreciation. On Thursday morning Prpf. Morphet visited the school for the final leave-taking. Just before his departure the fire alarm was sounded with the result that the building was vacated and Prof. Morphet in leaving, marched between two lines of students whose lusty school yells were sj-mbolie of the godspeed they wished for him. The Kiwanis membership was out and a number of friends par- icipated in this pretty farewell tri bute paid to him. Prof. Morphet was driven to Upland and caught the Pennsylvania train for Grass Creek, the home of his parents, where he made a short visit. STATE PRESIDENT W.C.T.U. HERE Mrs. Elizabeth Stanley State Presid ent of W. C. T. U., Speaks Before Fairmount Audience Mrs. Elizabeth Stanley, state presid ent of the W. C. T. U., spoke Thursday evening in the Friends church. The address was strong and forceful and it is to be regretted that a larger audience was not present to hear her. Her subject was along the line of law enforcement and she urged her audience to not negject their franchise privileges, to attend the primaries and to see that the right men were put into office men who would support dry measures and who would pledge themselves to enforce the laws. Mrs. Stanley made a number of talks before the different unions over the county and in all of them she asked the members of the W. C. T. U. to take advantage of the ballot in promoting the cause for which the unions stand. POST MORTEM IN ACCORD WITH CORONER'S VERDICT. A post mortem was held Friday over the body of the late Orlando Gossett, well known Fairmount resident who was found dead in his home on East Third street Wednesday afternoon. The coroner and several phy sicians were present, but the autopsy disclosed nothing other than in ac-. cordance with the coroner's verdict rendered the day before. The fun eral was held Saturday afternoon from the residence with Rev. S. Adel-bert Wood in chargo and burial was made in Park cemetery. ORLANDO GOSSETT DIED OF CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE Coroner Phil Lucas was In Fair-mount Monday and held an inquest over the body of Orlando Gossett who was found dead in his home on East Third street Wednesday afternoon and rendered a verdict of death induced by cerebral hemorrhagic. Mrs. Gossett, who was visiting relatives in Covington, Ky., when notified of the sudden death of her husband, reached Fairmount Monday noon. John A. Jones.

The race for the nomination for sheriff on the Republican ticket was 1 r.arrowed down last wv-ek when Frank C Tukey, former deputy sheriff, and who has been making an energetic canvass of the county for the Republican nomination for sheriff, announced that he had withdrawn from the race. This announcement came as a surprise in political circles, as the race for sheriff was exrocted to furnish one of the most tr..ereur ey est in the primary. While Mr. Tukey s withdrawal will eliminate him as a . , , contender in the primary, his name will appear on the ballot, his an- nouncement having been made after; the time limit for withdrawals naa expired.
