November 18,  2017 - Frank's marbles and Fred Becker=

FRANK'S MARBLES & FRED BECKER - BLACKSMITH

SHOPTALK: On my home desk this week are “Frank’s” marbles. Frank is my friend, Vermilion artist Frank Homitz – and he didn’t lose them. He gave them to me.

Actually he made them. He’s been making marbles for quite some time now. I didn’t know they were so popular until he started showing me some of those he’s made and sold.

They are pretty. And they are unusual. How many people to you know that can make them?

I REPEAT MYSELF:On the shop desk this week (again) is an old pic of Fred Becker in his blacksmith shop. It was located next (west of) to Walker’s garage on Liberty Avenue – long ago. Today the area is part of the Ritter Public Library.

The school, by the way, was where a former Vermilionite named Phoebe Goodell Judson received her education. Phoebe and her husband Holden went west to the Oregon Territory back in the mid 19th century.

Becker’s building was originally located where the Vermilion township hall is today. It was a school and meetinghouse. It was moved from that site to a place near today’s Vermilion Boat Club along the river when the townhall was to be built.

Later it was removed from that site and place on the site west of Walker’s garage. Later it was razed to make room for a used car lot. Eventually the library assumed ownership of the entire area.

JOIN US (AGAIN): Officially beginning on the Friday following Thanksgiving will be our First Annual Photo Exhibition / Gallery at the Vermilion History Museum.

We will be selling 8x10 and 4x6 photographs. Most of them are prints made from NEWS editor Pearl Roscoe’s glass negatives. Some are made from his film negatives. And others have been acquired from various other local sources during the last decade or two.

Whether you’re a Vermilion native or not this collection is both informative and entertaining.

The exhibit will last until Christmas. Come on in and enjoy it.

Historically,

EVERY PIC TELLS A STORY: I suppose that by itself this picture would be of interest to some. I came across it while sorting through some digital pix during the week. It’s obviously a photo of the aftermath of a river’s ice breakup floods.

In this particular case it was taken along the Vermilion River. No date was given for the photo. It could have been the Great Flood of 1913 – but that’s not a definite. The title of the pic was simply “Flood”.

I’d never paid close attention to any of these pix before – but taking a better look at this one is particular I can say that it was taken at the site of Cloudy’s Ferry franchise near the mouth of the Vermilion River.

I’m also guessing that the water had receded when this photo was taken allowing the photographer an ability to walk across the jagged ice field and get this photo.

This would be in the vicinity of the Vermilion Yacht Club today. This is the reason it’s so important to keep the river open after it freezes. Otherwise these ice chunks would wreak havoc on the very expensive homes that now occupy the area.

I have seen some other pics of this area taken about the same time as this that show a fish tug stranded nearby.

KALEY: 1845 – 1938: During the past several months I’ve been reviewing histories of Vermilion’s old Congregational Church that eventually evolved into the UCC Congregational church in our community. There are two: one written by Lucy Morgan (1855-1932) in 1918, the other by Elizabeth “Betty” Trinter (1917-2008) in 1993. These histories parallel the development of our community from pioneer times to the start of the 21st century. They are, in short, very interesting documents, full of interesting stories of the yesteryear and equally interesting people whose lives they document.

One of the people mentioned in both histories – one that caught my interest was a fella named John Albert Kaley. He ministered to the congregation here from 1895 to 1903. Among those persons who had served this church Kaley stood out because at one time he had the distinction of having served the longest pastorate in its history – eight and a half years. It is a record that was eventually eclipsed by two others: Rev. Earl English (1927-1956) and Rev. Louis Bertoni (1962-1996). Nonetheless, Rev. Kaley’s tenure seemed remarkable when one considers that the average stay of a Parson during the church’s then 75-year history was less than three years. So who was this guy? What made him different?

Rev. Kaley was the third of eleven children born to Charles and Elizabeth Kaley in Lewisburg Pennsylvania March 31st 1845. On March 28, 1863, three days before his eighteenth birthday, he enlisted in the Signal Corps of the Union Army during the War of the Rebellion (aka. the American Civil War). Most of his service time was spent at Washington D.C., New Orleans and Memphis Tennessee. He later noted that during those years he successfully made his way through “Ray’s Arithmetic”, saying that it was “a feat performed by perhaps no other soldier during the war”. [NOTE: Ray’s Arithmetic was published in 1834, just three years before McGuffey published his First Reader. It sold for six cents, and dealt in the main with mental drill. The problems required that the student think rapidly and accurately.]

In later years he would tell folks that while taking a three-month Signal Corps training course at Georgetown near Washington he “almost” shook then President Lincoln’s hand. Accompanied by a friend he went sightseeing at the White House and came across Lincoln on the grounds telling a story to a crippled man in a wheelchair. Being mere Army Privates they kept to the background trying to muster the courage to introduce themselves to the “Great Emancipator”. To his eternal regret their nerves failed them – they were so awed by the great man’s presence.

While he admitted seeing little action during the war, “my business being to wave flags by day and torches by night,” he did have some personal memories of Generals Grant, Sherman, Burnside and other Civil War heroes, as well as some famed persons from a later generation – namely William McKinley and famed Ohio Senator Mark Hanna.

Following the war he attended and graduated from Wittenberg College in 1872 and from Yale Theological Seminary in 1875. On April 7, 1885 he married Miss Carrie Hoyt at Hastings Michigan. The couple had three children by the time they arrived in Vermilion in 1895. During his ministry he served parishes from Vermont to Ohio. During his ministries he’d travelled extensively in Europe and Asia. While in the Holy Land he traveled more than a thousand miles on foot. And though he retired from active church work in 1911 he hardly stopped working.

In an interview published in the Honolulu Advertiser twenty years later [Note: Kaley obviously kept travelling.] the feisty veteran of both corporeal and spiritual battles slapped a table with his hand proclaiming that when some “reach seventy or seventy-five they conclude that they must take things easy, sit down and twiddle their thumbs.” Their children tell them “Now you mustn’t do this or that, Dad! You know you’re not as young as you used to be. That’s all wrong. I never worked so hard in my life as I did last year and I believe I have as much promise of twenty-five more years of life as I have had at any stage in my career.”

And that he nearly did. Well into his ninth decade of life, while living in Elyria, he was at it from seven in the morning till ten at night working on inventions in his workshop or writing one of his several books. He was also extremely active in the local chapter of the G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) veteran’s organization. Until one year before his death he still marched in the Elyria Memorial Day Parade. He recalled that once on a visit to Gettysburg an Indiana woman asked him to mount the marble platform that had replaced the one where Lincoln spoke on November 19, 1863 and recite the Gettysburg Address for her. He had by that time earned some recognition for having delivered the address several times on Cleveland radio broadcasts.

At 11:40 p.m. December 13, 1938 the Rev. John Albert Kaley took leave of this world and went on to his final ministry. He was 93. And just as War Secretary Edwin M. Stanton, upon the death of Lincoln, is thought to have said, “Now he belongs to the ages,” so too does Rev. Kaley. There are others, however, who believe the phrase was “…belongs to the Angels”. In the case of Reverend Kaley, as well as President Lincoln, perhaps it is both.

PARSONS – COOPER

MARRIED – Wednesday, Nov. 10, 1909, at Chicago Ill., Mr. Alva Parsons, formerly of Vermilion and Miss Mae Cooper of Chicago. The young people will make their home in that city. Mr. Parsons is the son of John Parsons of this place and has the best wishes of a host of friends.

May Build A Church

A report has been circulated about town that the Church of Christ has purchased the house and lots on the East corner of Ohio and Division streets of J.J. Fay. Upon inquiry it was found that the rumor is only partly true. Negotiations have been made for the purchase of the property but the deal has t as of yet not been closed but will be, in all probability, shortly. The property is an ideal one for a church and parsonage. The church is reported in prosperous condition and recently an indefinite call was given Mr. Murray the present pastor, at an increase in salary.

COURT NOTES

Claudie Irene Hauff, who has been living with her grandparents Martha and William Mason, in Vermilion Tp., since the death of her mother, was given into custody of her father, William Hauff, in the courtroom of common pleas Thursday. Hauff had made application for a writ of habeas corpus. The parties were brought together by Judge Reed and an amicable settlement of the differences existing soon was arranged. Mr. Hauff was married some time ago and is now in a position to give the little girl a good home. The child is about two years old.

The Lake Shore Electric has filed a motion in the Court of Common Pleas, to require Alonzo DeMaris plaintiff in a personal injury damage suit, to make his petition more definite. The company wants to know among other things just how badly DeMaris was injured. DeMaris was the motorman on one of two cars that came together just west of Vermilion several months ago.

Will Sweeney Ill

The following from Norwalk will be of interest here. As a result of a blood clot on his brain, W. B. Sweeney, a traveling salesman from Continental was taken very ill Monday evening at Hotel Langstaff. He was unable to move any part of his body. Tuesday morning he was able to go home.

Mr. Sweeney formerly lived at Vermilion. Inquiry from relatives today elicited the information that he is still ill from the effects of it. He suffered a similar attack some two years ago. Mr. Friday visited him at Norwalk and remained with him until the arrival of his wife from Continental. He suffered two more spells while on the train going home.

ACCEPTS THE CALL

Rev. A. G. Lohmann has accepted the call to Crestline, Ohio, and will begin his duties there 1 December. Many of Mr. Lohmann's congregation will be sorry to lose him as their pastor but will wish him success in his new field of in of labor.

It is reported that a call may be extended to Rev. Pretzer who was pastor of this church for 12 years and consequently well known and highly respected by the townspeople as well as by his own members. Should the call be extended and accepted Rev. Pretzer and his estimable family will receive a royal welcome we are sure.

Earl Leinbach has purchased him a new horse.

Florence

Mrs. Frank Krapp has gathered about 40 bushels of walnuts.

The price of turnips has doubled in this vicinity during the past week in the still advancing. The last report was three small ones for five cents.

Repairs on the Congregational church will be begun very soon. The steeple is to be remodeled, the chimney built and a furnace installed. The outside of the building will be painted and the interior renovated.

WEST VERMILION

Albert and C. Kishman are having a good catch of whitefish at their fishing plant.

After being closed for two weeks on account of measles, our school opened again Monday.

Plans are being drawn for the new Sailors Home to be erected on the land donated by A. R. Rumsey. As soon as completed work will commence on the erection of some of the buildings.

[NOTE: This is a very interesting note. More about it appears below. I don’t know if this ever really materialized – but I’ll look for more about it.]

A. R. Rumsey has had Bertillion system of weighing and measuring installed at the park.
[NOTE: Bertillon system: A system for identifying persons based on bodily measurements, photographs, and notation of data (such as markings, color, and thumb line impressions)]

The Curfew Ordinance

There is an ordinance of the village of Vermilion known as the curfew ordinance. The enforcement of this law has, during the past year or two been a dead letter and this brought about partly because there has was no bill or whistle which could be used to sound the hour. The firemen objected to the use of the fire bell thinking it should not be used for any other purpose than calling the firemen. Of late there is but a tendency for boys and girls of 14 years and under to run the streets at night and some depredations have been reported, whether committed by them or not, they are blamed for it. There is a certain cliché of little folks who seem to think that no better fun than ringing doorbells and doing other things to annoy. There is legitimate fun enough without acquiring the habit of disregarding the rights of others.

Believing it to the best interest of the community, that this curfew ordinance be again enforced, at a recent meeting of the Sorosis the subject was discussed and finally a committee appointed to call upon the Mayor and ask for the enforcement of the ordinance.

Next to the enforcement of the ordinance and what will be required as an aid, is some signal. What bell is there to be rung or what whistle to be blown? Who will furnish one?

One thing is certain it would be a good thing to keep children off the streets evenings unless they are with some older person.

[NOTE: Another interesting piece of the yesteryear. Were this the only problem our community faces today we’d be very happy.]

THE SAILORS HOME

Plans Under Consideration

Plans are now being prepared for the construction of the buildings for the Sailors at Rumsey Park. The home will be constructed of the cottage plan and will be an institution of considerable magnitude. Already a large sum of money has been provided. We hope to be able to give a full description of the proposed home in the near future.

The city was placed under military law Friday.

RUGBY

Hunting season is opened and rabbits are being caught. Hunters are here from Oberlin, Lorain, and Elyria. Mill Hollow is noted for a fine hunting place.

There is a very dangerous place where people have to cross the river these dark nights and high water. There had ought to be lanterns placed at each side of the water to light the way for the passersby.

AXTEL

Miss Rose Sprunk is busy clerking at Charles Sprunk’s store.

Mr. Merritt is entertaining several hunters at present.

There must be a lot of shooting around the L. J. Washburn place as about 11 owners make it their headquarters.

The many friends of Mrs. E.J. Aubill will be grieved to hear that she is at present feeling quite miserable suffering considerable pain.

Accidents Of A Day

The following accidents were reported as a result of the first day of hunting season:

At Wooster, Jerry Vitaro had returned from the day shooting and set his gun down in the kitchen at his home. A three-year-old son got a hold of the weapon and discharged it. The load struck his mother in the breast causing her death in a few minutes.

Robert Bowman of Cleveland while near Creston, shot a chicken and stuffed her into a pocket of his coat before the hen was dead. The chicken in its struggles caused the revolver in the pocket to go off. The bullet struck Bowman in the hip, breaking the bone.

Will Brown, 17, got excited when he saw a rabbit jump up and started to run after it. About the same time, his father L.C. Brown shot at the rabbit, the larger part of the shot catching the boy in the face in breast. His injuries are not serious.

Carelessness of hunters nearly proved fatal to James Walker at Findlay when a bullet took off a small portion of his ear. The identity of the shooter is unknown. He was husking corn in the field.

Hmmmmmm....

THE MISINFORMATION HIGHWAY: Two decades ago the Internet was lovingly referred to as “The Information Highway”. And for a time that might have been true. But times have changed, and the information highway has evolved into “The Misinformation Highway”.

No small part of the problem is the thing called Social Media. It has expanded the reach of conspiracy theorists that have begun targeting [no pun intended] national tragedies.

One conspiracy enthusiast, for instance, refers to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut as a “hoax.”

“I do think there’s some cover-up and some manipulation,” the enthusiast said. “I’ve watched the footage, and it looks like a drill.”

Nice try, Bud. Tell that to the families of the victims. And it would be nice if it ended there, but it doesn’t.

Now some are claiming that the Las Vegas shooting victims were actors – that the whole thing was a fraud.

Well, of course it was. The “fake news” people – left-wing liberal loons – are just trying to provoke the government into repealing the 2nd Amendment so they can take away our guns.

Yikes!

Common sense, human decency and truth count for nothing along the “Misinformation Highway”. Anything and everything is game.

Was a time when we might’ve viewed all this as some type of satirical drama: But it’s not.

It’s real.

But nobody’ll ever believe it.

That’s probably because the reality found on computers and cell phones is not as compelling as the immediate posts from misinformed hitchhikers tweeting from their tents along the “Misinformation Highway”.

Fini.

VERY INTERESTING:Lucky John Sherod. I wonder if he guessed the hours or days?

VERMILION ARTIFACT #276

VERMILION GRAIN MILL:: This cool item is a thermometer that you would attach somewhere on the outside of your home. It was compliments of, of course, the Vermilion Mill & Supply company that once occupied the site of Vermilion’s Mill Manor nursing facility.

I’m unable to guess the age of the object. Judging from its condition it had apparently been outside for years on someone’s home. I believe this came from Roy Kneisel compliments of his daughter.

OF COURSE

"Grandpa, I'm really proud of you," said the modish young lady. "What's to be proud of?" asked the old man.

The young lady replied, "I noticed that when you sneeze, you've learned to put your hand in front of your mouth."

"Of course," explained Grandpa. "How else can I catch my teeth?
