From the Warren, (Trumball County, Ohio) Gazette, of November 1.
     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.

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 of 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.
