Bicycle Riding on Sidewalks Should
HIT BY STREET CAR
Electric Car Demolishes Wagon
and Injures Occupants.
There Is an ordinance on the village
ordinance book which prohibits riding
bicycles upon the village sidewalks
and provides a penalty for so doing,
but for some time past the ordinance
has been permitted to become a dead
one, until the practice of riding on the
watts has become a nuisance both to
peaeatrlans and riders of bicycles by
reason of collision.
The condition on Front and Second
streots is at all times such that riding
on those streets is not at all disagree
able, and it is high timo that the law is
enforced ard riders given to under
stand that their presence on the walks
will not bo tolerated.
It might be proper for the Mayor to
give notice that the law is to be en
forced and thus give everybody a
chance to avoid arrest, aud then give
the Marshal strict orders to arrest ev
ery violator of the law.
Recently there has been several in
stances in which nccidenta have been
narrowly avoided, and it is well to
stop the practice before somothing
serious should happen.
On Monday afternoon an accident
occurred near Rossford which was a
narrow escape for two men and a
Jacob Hoffman and John Gross of
East Toledo were driving across the
Maumeo Malley track near RosBford
when'thev were struck by an electric
car. The one-horse wagon was mash
ed to kindling and both men thrown
from the rig and badly bruised.
It was at first thought that Hoff
man was seriously injured, but when
brought to the Rheinfrank hospital
for examination it was found that he
wob only bruised and that none of his
injuries were serious.
Mr. Gross was only shook up and
remained with the remains of the rig
while Hoffman was brought to Per
rysburg for examination and medical
assistance in cobo it was needed.
It was a narrow escape and was
caused by driving on the track ahead
of the car.

Leaving San Francisco wo traveled
south over the coast line of the South
ern Pacific, which lino traverses the
hill a and through the canonB of the
coast range of mountains until we
reached DelMonto, Monterey and Pa
cific Grove, three beautiful resorts on
the Pacific shoro whore eternal sun
shine, caressing ocean breezes and en
chanting scenery abound and make
the visitor feel that at last he has
reached either the new Paradise or a
second edition of the Garden of Eden.
While enjoying this pipe dream and
thinking myself on the original spot
whore our first parents got wise and
thereby lost their job on Easy street, I
read that an Englishman bad discov
ered that the original, sure enough
spot where the Garden of Eden was
located is in India near the junction
of the Euphrates and Tigris river, and
thus 1 am rudely awakened from my
dream, but still think there are enough
beauty spots In the United States for
a full dozen Gardens of Eden, and
right here in this place is one whose
beauties of scene and climate will long
linger in the mind of one who is fortu
nate enough to once visit here.
Paciflo Grove is the place where my
friend, E. P. Averill and his wife
spend a portion of their winters, and
the wisdom of their choice can only be
appreciated by those who have visited
This place was originally a colony
started in 1800 by religious organiza
tions, who established here a Pacific
coast Chautauqua, and the Bteady in
crease in growth of the colony has
made it a charming place which is rap
idly becoming known as an education
al and art center. Off by the bay, on
"Lovers Point," is the Japanese tea
gardens, where tea iB served by the
Japanese after the style of their own
country, and here also Is located the

How can a black cow, fed on green
grass, give white rnilk? The Bible
doeB not relate all the miracles. How
can a citizen become progressive and
keep in touch with the world that
moves? The man who is willing to
spend a dollar where it will return
him more than one hundred cents
worth of benefit is keeping step with
common sense and marching to the
music of good investment. The man
or woman who travels and goes away
from home once in a while often finds
a bargain counter.
Last year, at the Ohio btato Fair, a
farmer purchased one hog that paid

times over, besides improving the

A. P. SANBLES,
In discusing a meeting at Bloom-
dale in which the ministers discussed
tho proposed amendments relating to
the Liquor License, Capital Punish;
ment and Woman Suffrage, the edi
tor of the Derrick says:
The subjects were handled very
interestingly by the ministors, but
merely on one side of tho questions.
The one thing that stands out
boldly regarding the Con. Con. is
the hurry to vote on the amendments
proposed. People should remember
how the proposition wus put to the
voters to call a convention for the
purpose ol amenaing the constitu
tion, at the election a couple years ago.
We venture to say thousands voted j
for the question and did not know
they did, owing to the arrangement
of the question on the ballot.
There is no reason for hurry. Fully
a year should be given over to the
consideration and discussion of the
proposed amendments before voting.
It is doubtful whether two per
cent of the voters of tne state under
stand them, or the motive for their
adoption. It is characteristic ol
Americans to act quickly and repent
It i3 the opinion of the thoughtful
and sincere thinkers of the state, un
prejudiced by the excitement of the
moment over a single idea involved,
that the little "African in the wood
Dile" is too much in evidence to war
rant a h rried consideration and vote.
Somo of the apparently innocent
appearing amendments, according to
reliable, authority, depend upon the
passage of some other amendment to
make them effective, often for vicious
The initiative and refejenUum
amendment is probably the basis for
more evil legislation than any other
On tho part of the writer our opin
ion is, unless we have more time to
consider these amendments, more
definite understanding of the object
back of them, three fourths or maybe
all will receive our little veto.
When in doubt, or not positive that
you fully understand tho purpose of
the 12 amendments proposed, vote
NO. There will be no great loss if
not adopted, and .20 years to ropent if
they prove defective.
