Sunday Movies on the Ballot
Vote on the question of whether or not our town will permit Sunday movies occupies the spotlight locally in the general election to be held Tuesday. Close to a thousand voters are expected to go to the pools. Ministers of town have been opposing the issue from the pulpits and through the press, and in another column the theatre operator states his stand. Pre-election opinion is that the issue will be defeated by a two-to-one vote.

Died From Indigestion
Issac Graybill was discovered dead about nine o' clock on Saturday evening at Burkholder's restaurant. He was found on the floor of the bathroom with the hot water spigot running. He had been complaining for some months of indigestion. For eight years he worked on his father's farm, and he served 17 months overseas in the World War. Since that time he was an automobile salesman for Frank Burkholder. His death was a shock to many friends who knew him.

Hallowe'en Highs and Lows
Hallowe'en was again celebrated in various ways, but of all ways the most despicable was the throwing of flour and cornstarch on any and everybody who chanced along. Isn't it soon time for the town council to do something to curb the unlawful pranks of some young folks. It is all right to celebrate Hallowe'en decently but it's all wrong when maliciousness has full bent.
Linden Hall's Hallowe'en celebration was ideal. Pumpkins, cut-outs of course, were the most amusing feature. Miss Mary Huebener's was decided by ballot to be the prettiest. The girls reported loads of fun.

John Wilkes Booth Lives in Egypt
The old, old story that John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln, is still alive is revived by a story told my a resident of Birmingham, Alabama, who has now in press a book on the life of the arch-assassin. This biographer produced a letter bearing an Egyptian postmark, from Booth. He goes on to say that on the night of the shooting Booth had hired an Irishman to impersonate him for $1,000. The man has a horse outside waiting, and when Booth left the opera house he mounted the animal and was taken across a creek. There the two men changed clothes, and Booth, disguised as an Irishman, returned to Washington. The fugitive is said to have spent some time in Kansas, Tennessee and Louisiana. From there he went to Japan and made himself known to the American legation, which fact can be substantiated by General Richard Hubbard, minister there.
Booth is now in the service of the Khedive of Egypt and owns over 100 camels. In the book he will produce a remarkable letter from Andrew Johnson, showing that Booth did make his escape. He also shows letters giving the adventures of Booth since he left the United States.
