JULY 26, 1915

The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 92 years ago:

Lad mangles finger

Walter Clark, the eight-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. D.D. Clark of Peru, mangled the little finger on his left hand so badly with a hatchet this morning that it was necessary to amputate the digit at the second joint.

Concrete road opening up

Half the concrete has been laid in Lorain County on the Kipton section of Main market Road No. 1 and the work is going fast. Slag is being used instead of crushed stone and the road does not promise to be up to the Huron County standard. Autos may now run about a mile on this end of the new concrete which cuts just that much off the detour. Take the turn to the left (north) at place where road is blocked - plainly marked throughout. It will also be good news to motorists that the steel reinforcements for the bridge on the concrete road between Wakeman and Collins arrived today and is being put in place. The bridge will be open for traffic Sunday.

Death of young man at E. Norwalk

Clement Landoll, son of Peter Landoll, of East Norwalk, died at the family home Sunday evening at 8:30 o'clock, aged 1 years. Death was due to tuberculosis.

Funeral services will be held in St. Paul's Catholic Church Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock. The boys' choir will chant the requiem high mass.

Three attend suffrage league

Three Huron County suffragists went to Bowling Green Saturday to attend the second meeting of the league of five counties Wood, Sandusky, Seneca, Erie and Huron.

Wood County and Bowling Green were worth going to see with their many park-like roads, extensive fields of thrifty corn, county buildings, surpassing, in solid, elegant architecture, her sister counties: clean, paved, pretty streets and handsome homes - and school and city buildings proving that the builders know how to get commodiousness, beauty and safety all together.

The meeting was held in the Epworth parlor of the Methodist Church. Every county of the district was represented, thirty members of the league being present. Mrs. P.M. Hendershott of Tiffin, chairman of the league, presided.

Huron's report was simply that the 1,406 signers of membership cards were being catalogued into townships and precincts, and that as soon as this is done, precincts will be canvassed to find all who care enough for the movement to take hold and help.
