Bellefonte Man Slain in Ohio Holdup.
William Herbert Benner, son of Mr.
and Mrs. John Benner, of this place,
was found dead on the pavement,
about three hundred feet from his
lodging place in Barberton, Ohio, Sun-
day evening at 9:15. His body was
still warm when found and there was
a bullet wound just above his heart.
While there were no witnesses to
the tragedy the police and American
Legion of Barberton are convinced
that the young man was held up and
shot by bandits who fled immediately
on finding that their victim carried
nothing of value.
Immediately upon receipt of the
news on Monday morning the young
man’s father and two brothers went
to Barberton and brought the body
home on Wednesday night. It was
met at the station by a body of the
American Legion and carried on a
flag draped caisson to the home of his
William Herbert Benner was 30
years, 5 months and 25 days old. He
was born and spent his early life on
a farm in Benner township. On April
24, 1918, he responded to his country’s
call and went to Camp Lee, Virginia,
where he was assigued to Battery F,
314th U. S. field artillery and went to
France with the Unit, there to serve
with such distinction for thirteen
months that he was awarded the “D.
S. 0.” medal. For the past six years
he had been an assistant foreman in
the steel mills at Barberton and was
home to spend his Christmas vacation;
having returned to his work on Dec.
28th. He was unmarried though his
engagement to Miss Alma Pletcher,
of. Howard, was recently announced.
They were to have been married in
He is survived by his parents and

Evangelical church this afternoon at
2 o'clock and interment made in the

Mentally Deranged by Illness Mrs.
Davis Takes Own Life at Lemont.
Lemont is in the shadow of a trag-
edy that occurred there Monday after-
noon, some time before tive o’clock.
Mrs. Annie Behrer Davis, who had
been subject to intermittent mental
aberration ended her lite by hanging
herself in the attic of the home of
her brother-in-law John Grove.
Mrs. Davis ‘had been making her
home with her brother, Jacob Behrer,
who lives near Paradise, in the Buffalo
Run valley, and only last Thursday
went over to Lemont for a visit with:
the family of her brother-in-law,
with whom her only daughter lives.
She seemed to be normal and there
was nothing in her manner to indicate
such a tragic act though she had
been in ill health for some time. But
when she was missed, Monday after-
noon, and could not be found either in
her room or about the grounds of the
Grove home, a search was made with
the result that her lifeless body was
found hanging from a joist in the
attic, where she had hanged herself
by standing on a chair until she had
fastened a-rope to the joist and about
her neck and then stepped from the
chair. It was evident that she had
committed the tragic act some time
before she was found as life was
quite extinct. 2
Mrs. Davis was about fifty years
old and was married to Rev. Davis,
a minister of the United Brethren
church who once held a charge at
Houserville. He is now located in
California. Surviving her are her
daughter Miss Hilda three brothers,
John, in Indiana; Charles, of Danville
and Jacob, of Paradise, and five sis-
ters: Mrs. John Grove, of Lemont;
Mrs. Charles McCormick, of State
College, Mrs. Palmer, of Milton, Mrs.
John W. Hartsock, of Buffalo Run
and Miss Sara, in the west.
Interment will be made in the Pine
Hall cemetery this afternoon.
Aged Farmer Killed in Fall
Ira C. Ohl, a well known farmer of
Walker township, was killed early
Wednesday morning by a fall from a
bedroom window of his home at Palo
‘Alto, in Peck’s gap.
Details of the accident are missing,
because no one witnessed it. The old
gentleman was occupying a room by
himself and when his wife went to
arouse him about 5 o'clock in the
morning he was not there. The open
window suggested an accident and
going down into the yard she found
him lying on a stone walk, uncon-
scious. A physician was summoned,
but the man was dead when he ar-
rived. He had suffered a broken
shoulder and other injuries from the
Deceased was 79 years old and had
been twice married. His first wife
was Lucinda Bierly and to them two
children were born, Nora E., deceased
wife of Edward Vonada, and Lawrence
¥. His second marriage was to a Mrs.
Winkleman who had two children and
later three sons were born to this
union, Claire, Charles and Clark.
