Surnames mentioned:
Cowles Maynard McNaughton Chamberlain Morley

Geauga County

1.) A hurry call came to Sheriff Cowles from Hambden on the evening of the Fourth. The call urged the sheriff to hurry up, as a "drunken man is killing his family!" The sheriff hurried up, but when he arrived at Hambden he found no trace of bloodshed and no evidence that anybody's life was in jeopardy. He did learn, however, that a good citizen had been to Painesville, and walked a little unsteady. The sheriff also found the unsteady man's wife and children enjoying themselves with the crowd, well and hearty. So the hurry call was altogether too previous, and the sheriff rode home to Chardon pondering on the wild whims that come into some people's heads as soon as they get their mouth to a telephone.

2.) Married-At the residence of Justice M. L. Maynard and by him July 2, Mr. Ralph McNaughton of Claridon and Miss Ethel Chamberlain of Hambden.
3.) Upwards of forty members of the Chardon Research club spent a delightful day at Bass Lake on Friday, 6th inst. They had much to say in praise of the excellent dinner provided for them by the manager, John Morley, and of boat rides enjoyed on the beautiful lake.
4.) On the evening of the Fourth the Chardon people made some fine displays of fireworks, balloons and other Fourth of July ammunition, but it was noticed that the cannon cracker or bombs were not in evidence in Chardon on the Fourth. That's why we had no accidents.
