B. O. BIstlino of Bradner, was In
tho city and unexpectedly announced
his withdrawal from tho' race for the
Republican nomination for county
clerk, says the Sentinel.
His many friends will bo surprised
to learn of this action, as he was be
lieved to have an excellent chance
notwithstanding the sterling qualities
of his two competitors. He says he
will always be found in the front
ranks fighting for the success of tho
party and wishes to say that both his
competitors are good clean" men and
that tho party will make no mistake
in nominating either of them. His
past good party work Is a guarantee
that he cannot In tho future help
throwing off his coat when his ser
vices are needed.
Mr. Bistline has purchased a fruit
farm east of Bradner on which he has
had his eye for some time and whoso
earlier purchase would havo kept
him out of tho race entirely. Ho will
devote his attention to raising fruit
and poultry and to looking after his
oil interests which he feels will take
up all his time.

SEARCH AND SEIZURE
Warrants Issued and Several Places
Raided by Officers.
A slot machine, some poker chips
and four hands smelling strongly of
whisky were the fruits of a raid by
the sheriff's office Saturday night
upon six places about the county,
says the Sentinel.
The raid was made under the
Bearch and seizure law, warrants
having been issued, by Probate Judge
Nearlng. The officers engaged were
Sheriff A. C. Roach, Deputy W. C.

L. E. & B, G. Electric Ry. Has Trou
ble in Tontogany.
Adam Eddmon of Tontogany, has
filed an Injunction suit against tho
L. E., B. G. & NJ Ry. Co.
Eddmon asks that tho company be
restrained from building their tracks
and operating their cars on Broad
street from Lincoln street down to
the further end of his property on
Broad. He recites the passage of
the original ordinance, tho contro
versy between the two companies,
tells where the track is laid and then
charges that everything done so far
has been Illegal, and then he asks
that the company and tho village of
Tontogany be restrained from carry
ing out any of their plans.
Man comes Into the world without
his consent and leaves it against his
will. During his stay on earth his
time is spent In one continuous
round of contraries and misunder
standings. In his infancy he is an
angel, in his boyhood he Is a devil;
In his manhood he Is everything from
a lizard up; in his duties he Is a fool;
if he raises a family- he Is a chump;
If he raises a check he Is a thief;
and then the law raises Cain with
him; if he Is a poor man. he -is a
poor manager and has no sense; if
he is rich, he is dishonest, but con
sidered smart-; if he is in politics he
Is a grafter and crooked; if he is out
of politics, you can't place him, as
ho is "an undesirable citizen;" if he
goes to church he is a hypocrite; If
he stays away from church he Is a
sinner; If he donates to foreign mis
sions, he does It for show; if ho
doesn't he Is stingy and a tight-wad.
When he first comes Into the world,
everybody wants to kiss him before
he goes out they all want to kick
him. If he dies young, there was a
great future before him; It he lives
to a ripe old age, he Is In the way,
only living to save funeral expenses.

None but Undertakers Allowed to
Prepare Body for Burial.
Relatives, neighbors nor frlenda
will no longer be permitted to pre
pare a dead' body for burial, accord
ing to a law recently passed by tho
Ohio legislature, and one which is
endorsed by local licensed undertak
ers. Under the provisions of the newly
enacted law only licensed undertak
ers can prepare the body for burial.
The undertakers permitted, to per
form this duty must havo qualified
under a state examination in sanita
tion, the law of circulation and pre
paration of bodies for burial.
Theso provisions, according to the
Interpretation placed upon tho law
by local undertakers; prevent any
person other than a licensed under
taker from preparation of a body.
The law Is intended to prevent the
spread of contagious disease through
disregard to the laws of sanitation.
Again, under the qualifications re
quired for a license the chances of a
body being burled alive are reduced
to a minimum, because the test which
Is required by the licensed undertak
er will show conclusively whether
there is a spark of life left in the
HOME ORATORICAL CONTEST.
For some weeks the contestants
have been at work preparing for the
contest and Friday night will find
them "fit for the fray." This contest
is a new feature for Perrysburg
schools and the students are enter
ing into It with great enthusiasm.
The Corinthians and the Ionians are
the rivals for honors Each society
is preparing new yells for the con
test evening. They hope to cheer
their side to victory, If enthusiastic
support will do It. .

OUR FIRE ALARM(?)
At least three or four times during
the last week or two there has been
occasion to ring the fire bell our re
gard for truth prevents our calling it
an alarm and on each occasion we
will venturo to say that not moro
than 20 -persons outside the Immedi
ate vicinity of4the fire hall realized
that it was an alarm to . call out the
firo department. The "dinky" little
bell sounds about like a farmer's
dinner bell or a bell on ono of tho
C, H. & D. engines. If any disas
trous firo should occur during the
night half the town might burn up
while the other half slept on in bliss
ful Jgnorance of the conllagratlon In
sofar as thero being any danger of
their being aroused from their slum
bers by tho "rattle-box" now doing
service in tho capacity of a flre
Wo believe that tho council should
see to It that more adequate and ef
fective means be provided for calling
tho firemen togother in caso of flre.
At the fire one evening last week one
man and two boys were compelled to
tow the hose cart to tho scene of the
fire because others failed to hear the
alarm(?) and such delay some time
might provo disastrous and far moro
expensive than action taken In tho
right direction at the present time,
When Earth Passes Through Tail of
Mlany questions have been asked
regarding the great comet that Is ex
pected to be nearest the earth on
May 17, and the following questions
and answers were among those asked
and answered by Rev. Fr. Hllllg of
Toledo, and published in the Blade:
When will we be nearest to the
On May 18, about 8 p. m., standard.
The head of the comet will then be
about 12.000,000 miles away from us,
that Is about half the distance of
Venus from the earth when the two
are at their nearest approach. There
will be a transit or tho comet across
the sun's disc, because sun, comet
and earth will then be in a straight
line. The comet's tall will then
brush over the earth's face provided
the tall be over 12,000,000 miles long
and half a million miles across at
die earth's distance.
What will happen when we collide
with the comet's tall?
Nothing In particular! There Is
as little danger in that collision as
there Is In colliding with the odorl
ferlous particles emanating from the
highly perfumed dress of a person
that has crossed the sidewalk a few
seconds before you arrive on that
spot. The matter of the comet's tall
is thinner than, .the residue of air
contained In a globe after exhausting
it witb. the most efficient air pump.
Even if tho cometary matter were
the most poisonous gas some of It
13 highly poisonous cyanogen It
could not hurt us, firstly, because It
could hardly descend through our
dense atmospheric envelope of 80
and more miles thickness, and, sec
ondly, because it would be diluted in
the air so as to become absolutely
Will the fact that we pass through
the tall be noticed at all?
Perhaps and perhaps not. The
earth has passed through a comet's
tall on one or two former occasions
without any sensible effect. The
most that we may anticipate Is a pe
culiar luminosity of .the sky on the
evening of May 18, or perhaps a me
teoric shower. However, this predic
tion has less than half the probabil
ity with which the weather-man an
nounces his probable showers.

tho most pleasant drives to bo found
anywhere and is traversed dally by
hundreds of people In carriages, auto

of these persons aro strangers to our
little village and aro perhaps out
looking for some desirable place to
locate. Then each property owner
should deem it his duty to assist na
ture In her works of art In making
more beautiful tho property along

fact as the well groomed lawns and
beautiful flowers and foliage will tes

their part and their lawns are neg

of the rest.
It requires no great amount of
labor and expense to make the sur

It is evident that Mr. Roosevelt
will not talk for publication about
homo political affairs before lie Bets
foot on American soil, but when,
with a clean slate and with undimin
ished popularity, he returns' to this
country, can he be silent? No not.
though he should be speechless' sn&.
penless. His very looks, actions,,
greetings and meetings would ha
subject of political controversy. Mr
Roosevelt cannot help acting not as
actors act, not with stage effect, but
from an inherent necessity of out
giving and' speaking out. As a dis
tinguished writer once said of him,
"He does not wear his heart on his
sleeve, but he wears his mind) there."
No one needs to ask twice what Mr.
Roosevelt thinks, and when Mr.
Roosevelt acts, no stage smaller than
a continent or a planet will servo
him. In the complete Isolation en
joyed by him for the last twelve
months after eight years of tho most
energetic political activity event en
joyed or endured by an American
statesman or president, -with: tho ex
ception perhaps, of Abraham Lincoln,
it may be assumed that his reflec
tions In the solitude of African veldt
and forest have led to conclusions
with reference to the welfare and the
progress of his country that will find
expression sooner or later in our
national laws and politics.
