          SHELBYVILLE, Ind., May 18. -- County Auditor Fagel issued a call this afternoon for a special meeting of the County Council on May 20 to consider an appropriation for paying attorneys to assist Prosecutor Henry in conducting the trial of  Thomas Shaw  for the murder of  Mrs. Dora Marlin  here on the night of April 3.  The case is set for trial May 22, but it is believed the defendant will ask a change of venue owing to the feeling here as the result of the murder.  The prosecutor says he is ready for trial and the attorneys of Shaw assert they are ready.  It is rumored Shaw will have a prominent Indianapolis attorney.  After killing Mrs. Marlin, Shaw shot himself twice in the chest, but has recovered fully.  His family is prominent and relatives visit him at the jail almost daily.

          Wilbur Shaw, of Indianapolis, is here for a visit with his father, James Shaw, at the Espy House.  Wilbur is a bright, hustling lad, and inherited some of the "hunting fever" from his father.  They took a trip to the country yesterday and the boy's duty was to hold the dog to keep him from tearing the birds in retrieving and to stop his work [the article continues but my copy stops here - PMF].

MAY  LOSE  SIGHT  FROM
OAK  POISONING
-------------
MRS. EMMA  SHAW, OF  THIS  CITY,
TAKEN  TO  HOSPITAL  FOR
TREATMENT

          Mrs.  Emma  Shaw,  wife of  James  E.  Shaw,  who is now in the west, may lose the sight of both eyes the result of accidental poisoning from oak ivy.  She is now at the St. Vincent hospital at Indianapolis taking treatment under Dr. Morris, a specialist in such cases, and it was said today that it was believed the sight of the left eye could be saved, but that there was little chance of saving the right eye. Mrs. Shaw was taken to the hospital yesterday evening and at the time she left this city she could not see with either eye, so the report of her condition today is highly encouraging.
          Mrs. Shaw has been making her home for some time with her sister,  Mrs.  Frank  Goodrich,  north of the city, and the incident that caused her suffering occurred one week ago last Monday.  She and Mrs. Goodrich were out walking over the farm when Mrs. Shaw unthoughtedly pulled some vines from a fence they were passing.  Later she rubbed her eyes and they began to smart and pain her.  It was then that she realized the deadly nature of the vine she had handled, tho she had thought nothing of it at the time.  She has suffered terribly during the past few days and local physicians who had attended her advised an immediate trip to the hospital.

          County Superintendent Shaw was in Indianapolis Friday.  Mr. Shaw is very much interested in the bill before the Legislature that makes his office an elective one by the people in place of an appointive one by the trustees and fixes his salary at $3 per day for the days he woks in place of $4 per day.  Under this bill the county superintendent must be a teacher of experience and be able to pass the highest grade examinations.  So far as the patrons of the schools are concerned they think this bill is a good one, but for some reason the superintendents don't see it in that light.

          "Sweets to the sweet"  is a pretty expression we propose to change into "sweets from  the sweet,"  since receiving yesterday morning a bounteous supply of New Year's cake at the hands of  Misses Minnie Shaw and  Fannie Dixon.  If any thing could enhance the pleasure with which this gift was received, it would be the fact that it was delivered in person by the fair young donors themselves.  We wish them "many returns," not only of the happy New Year, but also of their visits to our office.
