Beautiful Maumeo Valley Blotted
WHOnsightly Bill Boards.
Tho spirit of commercialism seoms
to have no respect for tho beauties
ot nature's work.
This fact Is proven by tho recent
erection of unsightly bill boards along
the lino of travel between Perrys
burg and Maumce.
We had hoped tho beauties of the
Maumeo valley, made sacred by tho
heroic sacrifices of tho early settlers
who baptised nearly every foot of
this valley with their life's blood,
might bo spared tho humiliating
spectacle of being converted Into dis
play advertising for Madame Raw
bono's Corsets and Dr. Physic's Pills,
but at last tho almighty Iovo of
dollars has placed its destroying
fingers upon our peaceful and beautl
ful valley and branded it with tho
seal of commercialism.
FOOT BALL GAME.
Hardly a cleaner and harder
fought gamo ot football has been
played for several .years than that of
Oct. 13, by the Perrysburg team. Wo
might mention the fact that we used
two men who have not played or
practiced before this year and an
other who had never played a game.
All three Chas. Finch, Wm. Jules
and F. Canode played a lino game
and wo must credit tho whole team
for great work. Walker made good
at quarter, it being his first attempt
In that position. Mr. Whitman made
the touchdown and F. Finch kicked
the goal which mado the score 7 to
0, tho final result of tho gamo.
Thanks to the good fans last Sun
day. You did good work. Come
stronger next time. We're giving
the best we can give In tho line of
football, 'Wo expect to h'avo a good

THE LAST CHAPTER
GoinR Away is Pleasure, Coming
Home is Happiness.
After leaving Colorado Springs,
Colorado, wo wero on our last day ot
wild and romantic scenery and tho
next morning our eyes were greeted
with scenes moro homelike, because
of our ontry Into tho splendid agri
cultural section of western Kansas,
where fields of beautiful corn waved
their tassels In tho air and spoko of
peace and (prosperity. "Bleeding
Kansas!" No moro is that epithet of
derision applicable, for Kansas
bleeds no more, but blooms Instead
Such Holds of graln'and stacks of al
falfa; such beautiful orchards ot rip
ening fruit! Ono would hardly be
lieve that not so very many years
ago hundreds of families were slowly
and mournfully "trecking" their
weary way back from tho land which
was epectcd to be found "flowing
with milk and honey," but where
milk was sour and honey bitter, and
the "Kansas or Bust" signs on the
big immigrant wagons going out
were changed to "Kansas and Bust
ed" on a one-man push cart coming
back. It was the old story: the man
who stayed there and was tough
enough and had money to hold out
long enough eventually became rich.
On every hand there is evidence that
Kansas is indeed a good section ot
these United States.
Passing through Missouri we
found a continuation of those splen
did crops and when the grand old
state ot Illinois was rolling by, land,
crops, homes and towns all seemed
to tako on a moro homelike appear
ance and I put my head through tht
vestibule car window to sniff the air,
like a hound dog, in hopes I might
pick up a stray breath from Ohio.
Leaving Chicago our journey wa3
short, and our purse was also short
after partaking of a dinner on tho
Lake Shore diner, and if any person
is inclined to complain about the
"high cost of living" I would advisu
him to take a full sized meal on a
Lake Shore dining car and he will
never again complain about the
prices he pays for "living" in Perrys
burg. To my friends on the farm who
may feel that Ohio land is too high
priced to bo mado to pay, let me say
that unless you havo youth, backed
up with courage and strength, don't
leave Ohio to go west expecting to
pick up cheap land and turn million
aire in a few years stay In Ohio.
Don't permit tho tales told about
tho wonderful fruit ot Oregon and
Washington make you dk. satisfied
with your Ohio orchard. Remembei
there, is no .fruit grown in those
states that equals the same kind ot
fruit raised in Wood county, Ohio.
The western apples are monstrous
and beautiful fruit, but my friend
Alvin Phillips raised better fruit on
ills farm a few miles east of Perryfe
burg, that for quality Is far ahead
of any apples I saw In the west, and
if the farmers of Ohio will put forth
an effort to cultivate, and caro for
their orchards as do the Oregoni and
Washington orchardlsts they will find
that an aero of apples trees will
bring them more clear profit than It
would If devoted to any other crop
When I consider how muck Ohio
fruit trees aro neglected, I feel that
tho owners of those orchards aro vir
tually guilty of criminal carelessness.
There is now and will long continue
to be, a ready market and a good
prlco, for all good fruit particularly
apples and Ohio orchards, if proper
ly treatod, will produce tho finest
Much effort has been made during
the past ten or more years, to induce
Ohio farmers to go up into tho Alber
ta and Saskatchewan countries of
Canada, and somo of those who have
gone have been successful, whilo oth
era havo failed. Chances to make
money in that country depend upon
luck, energy, money and ability to
hold on, to work and wait, and theso

Splendid Reception Given to Rev,
and Mrs. Webster.
On Frfday evening last tho mem
bers of tho M. E. church and congre
gation assembled at tho church In
large numbers to participate in a re
ception that had been planned in
honor of the return to Perrysburg of
Rev. and Mrs. E. J. Webster, tho pas
tor and his wife, who have been in
charge of this pastorate during tho
past two years.
The reception was planned chiefly
by Dr. D. R Canfield and his wife,
who were ably assisted by the ladies
of the church and the heads of tho
various departments in tho church
As the Sunday school orchestra
played the opening number of the
program Rev. Webster and wife were
escorted to the pulpit by six little
girls who, in their white dresses With
faces wreathed In happy smiles, mado
a most charming escort.
The members of tho choir also
formed a part of the escort, and wero
seated In their usual places just back
of the guests of honor.
Dr. Canfield, as chairman of the
meeting, opened tho program by
REV. E. J. WEBSTER.
briefly stating its object, calling at
tention to the high esteem in which
Rev. Webster and his good wife are
held in the hearts of the church and
congregation, and stating that it was
deemed but proper and due them to
be received In this manner and made
to feel that their return to the church
for another year was highly pleasing
and acceptable to the members.
He then introduced Mrs. Tannehlll
who read a very Interesting paper
setting forth some of the trials and
duties of the pastors wife.
Mrs. Wm. Mills, as president of the
Ladies' Aid society, was introduced
and gave a brief resume of the la
bors performed by that society, and
closed her address by reading a few
verses of poetry which demonstrated
very fully how much tho average
church depended upon the Ladles'
Aid for divers and numberous boosts
along tho road of prosperity.
Miss Ila Simmons in charming
voice gave a vocal solo that elicited
much applause. Tho piano .accom
paniment was ably rendered by her
sister, Miss Lillian Simmons.
Charles Schneider, ono of the Sun
day school workers, mado a very In
teresting talk on what has been ac
complished In that department of tho
church work, and spoko very encour
agingly of the future.

On Friday evening one of the most
pleasing social meetings of the year
was held at the Presbyterian church
parlors, the occasion being a recep
tion given by Rev. G. H. Lowry and
his Bible class to which members of
the church the congregation and
their friends and acquaintances were
The entertainment consisted of a
reading by H. M. Hoover, descriptive
of the battle of Gettysburg in which
he as a Union soldier participated.
Several musical members were
rendered in a most pleasing manner
and then, when the coffee and dough
nuts were served everybody pro
ceded to get sociable and have a
The meeting was planned chiefly
for the purpose of getting acquaint
ed and renewing old acquaintances
and Rev. Lowry announced a special
penalty to be Imposed on every
person who failed to speak to every
other person present. Whether it
was the fear of being penalized or
whether the real spirit of good fel
lowship had come along with the
audience no one seems to know but
the fact remains that it was a meet
ing that was a delight to the large
audience present, and we hope Rev.
Lowry will continue to call these
"get together meetings." Surely
Perrysburg Is in need of just such so
cial affairs as they have a tendency
to promote friendship which is not
only good for those attending, but
is beneficial to the entire village.
BIG BREAK IN CANAL.
With a roar that was heard a mile
away a large volume of water, freed
by a break In the east bank of the
Miami & Erie cannl five miles south
of Waterville, poured across bottom
land on the farm of Thomas Jeffries
to a depth of 10 feet into the Mau-
mee river eight rods dlBtant. Sunday
morning at 4 o'clock.
Tho break In the bank was 75 feet
wide and 15 feet deep. The keeper
of tho lock at Grand Rapids was no
tified and tho cannl gate there was
closed, thus shutting off further flow
of water Into that section of the canal
where tho break occurred. The water
continued to pour through the open
ing in tho bank until the water In
the canal was less than a foot In
Monday morning tho canal authori
ties started men to work to repair
