Prosecutor Hatfield won a victory
in probate court Saturday morning
when Judge C. R. Nearing found
Eugene Helwig of Walbridge guilty
of keeping a place where liquor is
sold. Sentence was deferred until
motion for a new trial can be filed.
Mr. Helwig keeps a restaurant at
Walbridge. The place was searched
by Sheriff Heald and Deputy Skibbie
on March 1 and they found five bot
tles of beer in a valise in a room ad
joining the restaurant. The defense
was that this room was for the pri
yate use of Mr. Helwig and his wife
as a clothes and other Btore room and
that the beer was for his own con
Prosecutor Hatfield suggested to
the court that whatever fine might be
imposed should be suspended, as be
believed-Mr. Helwig had been suf
ficiently punished and the lesson of
not keeping liquor about a public
place had been sufficiently impressed.
The attachment suit of Eli Cookson
against John Avery which was begun

Executions have been issued to
Sheriff Heald against Roger Brothers
and George Carmack in the ten liquor
cases in which the Suprsme Court
upheld Judge Nearing and in oue
against Carmack in which his insol
vency plea was rejected. The amount
of the first is 5171719 and that of the
latter is $100 with costs of about $75.

Another life has been added to the
toil the Maumeo river takes from
those who seek pleasure in boating.
On Sunday, while sailing near Per
rysburg opposite the car barn, Wil
liam T. Wing and John Eddis, his
nephew, in turning, their catboat up
set. Both men succeeded in climbing
on the upturned bottom of the boat
where they remainea a short time but
feared they could make no one hear
them and Wing decided to swim
ashore, but had swam only about 60
feet, when he shouted to hia nephew
that he was becoming exhausted. Ed
dis called to him to return to the boat
and he started back. Wing had tak
en only two or three strokes on the
return trip when he began to flounder
in the water and call for help. Hasti
ly taking off the rest of his clothing
Eddis plunged into the water and
started to swim for his uncle. Before
he had gone more than four or five
feet the younger man was so chilled
that he was almost powerless. Real
izing that he could not keep himself
afloat more than two or three min
utes, Eddis turned and made his way
back to the upturned boat. Before
the youth reached the craft his uncle
R. E. Messenger heard the call for
help and with Smith Stickles started
in a rowboat to assist Eddis, but the
boat leaked so badly they had to put
back to shore and their crafs was al
most swamped. Messenger and
Stickles then got a canoe with which
they rescued Eddis.
Wing was a single man, aged
and a veteran of the Spanish war.

At a meeting of the Council Mon
day night it was decided to pave
Main Street. The park plan was
voted down, but the decision to pave
the street was unanimous.
This decision places a great load
of sorrow on the shoulders of the few
who usually shudder at the mere
mention of a public improvement,
and who have interposed every possi
ble effort to kill the improvement.
We believe an excellent opportunity
for an artistic arrangement of the
street plan has been overlooked, but
the Journal is so thoroughly patriotic
in its devotion to Perrysburg interests,
and so exceedingly anxious to see the
village progress and improve that we
feel like congratulating everybody
upon the fact that the chronic ob
structionist has lost out in the effort
to block progress, and, at last, Perrys
burg's Main street will be elevated
from a mud hole to a real street, pass
able at all times of the year.

Much of the seed corn in this com
munity is in poor condition and will
not grow according to the instructors
from the College of Agriculture, Ohio
State University, who accompanied
the C. H. & D. agricultural special
and lectured at Perrysburg, Tuesday
forenoon. Threo samples of corn
collected at Perry.sburg and tested by
the College of Agriculture only show
ed a germination of 72 per cent, 66 2-S
per cent and 33 1-3 per cent respect
ively. These tests are considered by
the College men to be very low and if
corn of this kind is planted will give
poor stands and low yields.
The agricultural special train
which is making a four-day trip over
the C. H. & D. railrord started from
Toledo Tuesday morning carrying a
party of agricultural college men and
railroad officials. The men from the
College of Agriculture are: O. M.
Johnson, W. H. Darst, O. M. Kile,
H. E. Eswine, C. S. Wheeler, W. E.
McCoy, W. W. Brownfield and T. L.
Instruction on corn culture and
soil improvement by means of lectur
es and illustrated literature is being
given at 33 different towns along the
way. The lectures are given on
board the train. The train was met
here by a good sized crowd of farmers
and others interested in agriculture.
The three steps necessary to insure
a good corn crop, according to tho
instructor from the College of Agri
culture in his lecture on the agricul
tural special, are: (1) Early, thorough
preparation of the soil; (2) careful
selection and testing of seed ears; (3)
constant shallow cultivation of the
crop. In discussing these three
points, the instructor emphasized the
importance of early plowing for com.
This, he said, would allow the land
to settle before planting time; would
favor the rapid decay of organic
matter; and allow the soil to absorb
The selecting and testing of seed
corn is one of the most important
means of insuring a corn crop.
Field selection is the most desirable,
but where this was not done last fall,
the best looking ears should be select
ed from the crib and tested for germ
ination. Directions for making a
home made germinator were given
the farmers cautioned against plant
ing any ears that do not show strong
germination. Poor seed causes im
perfect stands, which in turn means
low yields. With a perfect stand
and evflcy stalk bearing a twelve
ounce ear, it is' possible to get over
100 bushels per acre.
Persistent, shallow cultivation dur
ing the growing period is very desir
aole, cot only as a means of keeping
down weeds, but in conserving soil
moisture. Deep cultivation cuts off
the corn roots and injures the crop.
For every dollar the man spends for
acid phosphate or floats to reinforce
barnyard manure he can expect five
dollars in the crop, said the next
speaker in his talk on soil improye
ment. He pointed out that it pays to
fertilize tho corn crop, and that all
fertilizers should contain phosphorus.
As to whether they contain nitrogen
or potassium depends on whether
manure has been used and clover has
been one of the crops in tho rotation.
The corn crop probably makes tho
bestTU8e of manure. It should ba
applied to the sod to be plowed for
corn, as soon after harvest as possible.
The earlier applied the better the
results. Manure is high in nitrogen
and potassium and should ba rein
forced with acid phosphate or floats.
Eight to ten tons of phosphated
manure, lime if needed, clover in the
rotation and fertilizer high er in phos
phorus than in nitrogen or potash on
the wheat, such as a 5-10.5, were
