Judge Rowley passes away

Judge Arthur E. Rowley, 67, eminent attorney, a notable figure in Huron County public life, and a citizen greatly esteemed and beloved by all who knew him, died in Memorial Hospital at 2:30 a.m. today.

Throughout the county, and in many other communities, the passing of this excellent man brings poignant grief and profound regret.

For two years he has been in ill health. But his condition did not appear serious until Thursday morning when cerebral meningitis suddenly developed. He was rushed to Memorial Hospital that day.

Mr. Rowley was born Jan. 16, 1867 in Fairfield Township.

Judge Rowley was one of the founders of Citizens National Bank of this city and served as a director and a member of the finance committee since the bank was organized.

The decedent served two terms as mayor or Norwalk, and at one time was chairman of the Huron County Democratic Executive Committee.

Strange malady attacks cattle

Veterinarians of Norwalk, Wellington, Ashland and Willard are puzzled over the development of a fatal cattle disease in this district. Ben Enger and George King, Greenwich Township farmers, have lost two cows as a result of the malady. Cows afflicted refuse to eat and milk dries up. Weakness increases and death follows.

The animals suffer much and kept sinking to the ground and rising as long as strength permits.

Veterinarians believe the disease is caused by a parasitic condition but are not able to say whether the animals become ill through drinking water or the eating of plants.
