From the Warren, (Trumball County, Ohio) Gazette, of November
A few days ago, two brothers, belonging
in Sheffield (Portage county,) left home to look for some horses.
They separated at the foot of a small hill, and soon after one of
them heard the other crying for assistance; he ran to him and
found he was attacked by a Bear; the man was standing, and the Bear
on his hind feet tearing out his bowels! Four balls were shot
through the Bear before he relinquished his prey. The man was
dead before his brother got up to him.

At Canfield, Trumbull county, Ohio, there was a
severe frost on the night of the 21st May; corn and potatoes were
killed to the ground; most, if not all of the fruit was killed;
grape vines looked as if they were scorched by fire. It
is hoped the wheat escaped, as but little of it had eared out.

HORRID! - Mrs. Louisa Stone, of Trumbull county,
Ohio, in a fit of insanity on the 14th of May, drowned three of her
own children. She was in a state of gloom and melancholy, and
declared that she had committed the unpardonable sin. Under
this impression, and believing that, if taken off at their present
tender age, the children would be happy, and believing also, that
having committed the unpardonable sin, no injury would follow to
herself - while her husband was gone to meeting, on Sunday, she
drowned the little innocents in a spring.

Son of Wealthy Ohio Man Kidnaped on Way to School.
NILES, Ohio, March 2, (AP) - As thousands of police hunted
the kidnappers of Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr., Northern Ohio
officers pushed Wednesday night their search for the abductors
James DeJute, Jr., 11 son of a wealthy Niles contractor.
The father, with the entire force of Trumbull County
police officers, hurried the boy, while the distracted mother
awaited a ransom note from the two men who carried the boy off in an
automobile Wednesday morning.
James fought off the kidnapers once, but the men
grabbed him again, his cousin, Anne May Mellina, 12 of
Ashtabula, told police.
Spurred by a $1,000 reward offered by the father for
the arrest and conviction of the kidnapers, neighbors, farmers and
police of surrounding counties were on guard with the Trumbull
County deputies in the search.
De Jute believes the child is held for
ransom as he told officers he had no known enemies.
