BREEDING EINE ANIMALS
Horses of Lewis Manor Farms Win
The recent importation of horses by
the Lewis Manor Farm, Perrysburg,
is well worth the attention of the
farmers and breeders in this neighbor
hood and a visit to these farms to see
the stock will be a pleasant surprise
to many. These horses are well worth
any man's time to see, whether in the
market or not.
The Belgians are a splendid type,
with the best of feet and legs, plenty
of bone and quality, and have weight
enough to suit anybody. These horses
show for themselves that careful at
tention must have been made in select
ing them as they show strong indi
viduality of their breed.
The Shires are as good as I have
ever seen and fit to show in any class.
They are of excellent blood lines that
show careful and conscientious mat
ing. Most of these mares and stallions
are only two years and three years
old, which was a great surprise to me,
as most of them must weigh a ton or
The hunters are the first that have
over been imported to this country, and
are certainly magnificent horses, show
ing great staying and jumping power,
and built to carry a man the right way,
and quite exciting to see the way they
take the many different jumps at a
Mr. Lewis deserves great praise for
his skill in securing such splendid
stock. It is coming to be recognized
by all up-to-date farmers that it is just
as cheap to raise good horses or horses
of good blood, as to raise the ordinary
kind, and it is well known that good
horses and the colts, such as Belgians
and Shires, bring prices far in exces"s
of the common kind.
There is no reason why this county,
with its rich soil, should not become
famous, as well as profitable, with its
blooded stock. All the horses on the
Lewis farms that are for sale should
bo bought by the farmers of this coun
ty, and none of them be permitted to

Two suits have been brought in com
mon pleas court in which Frederick
W. V. Colina is the plaintiff and Donald
R. Ackhn is the defendant. In one
suit the plaintiff seeks dissolution of
a partnership and the appointment of
a receiver pending the final hearing.
He says that in March, 1912, the two
entered into an agreement whereby
plaintiff was to look after stallions and
other horses belonging to the defend
ant; that he as to receive half of the
profits from the former and one-third
of the profits by reason of selling the
latter at an advance over their cost
when purchased in England; also that
he was to receive a shire colt born in
1912. He asserts he has fulfilled his
part of the contract, but that the" de
fendant has refused to. abide by the
terms of the agreement and that it is
impossible for them to settle. In a
second suit Colina asks for $15,000
damages from Acklin for slanderous
statements alleged to have been made
by the defendant againsthe plaintiff,
35,000 on each of two counts, and $5,
000 for making a similar statement to
plaintiffs wife, thereby causing a great
nervous shock to her, according to the

WANTS A DIVORCE.
Wm. Dnnniels has brought suit for
divorce from Libbie Danniels on tho
ground of willful absence for three
years and gross neglect of duty. They
were married at Perrysburg June 26th,
1901, plaintiff says, and have two
children, aged ten and six, after whose
care and support defendant agreed to
look under an agreement entered into
after her departure, according to

Because he afforded no shelter for
a bunch of swine, nor a place fit for
them to eat or sleep, Humane Officer
Gangwer swore out a warrant for the
arrest of Gust Kries, who resides on
the Winchell farm, south of town.
Numerous complaints had been made
to the officer, and upon making an in
vestigation he found the hogs covered
with mud. part of which had frozen
to their backs, and that they had
nothing but a mud-hole for a bed.
The feeding place was muddy and
that mud to a depth of six to twelve
inches covered the space in which
they were penned.
The case was tried before Justice
Plummer last Tuesday, and the ac
cused entered a plea of guilty, and
was assessed a fine of $5 and costs,
which amounted in all to $10.75. The
fine was made light on account of the
man having sold out and intending to
leave this section. Also that he was a
renter and was not provided with ma
terial with which to build a decent
place for the hogs. Risingsun Unique.

Judge Baldwin presided at the trial
of the Gporge H. Phelps vs. The Ohio
Oil Co. case in Findlay.
The Findlay Republican said:
"The trial of the $100,000 damage
case of George H. Phelps against the
Ohio Oil Company, the Solar Refining
Company the Buckeye Pipe Lino Com
pany and the Standard .Oil Company
came to an abrupt close in common
pleas court Friday morning when
Judge Frank A. Baldwin of Bowling
Green, presiding in the trial, directed
the jury to return a verdict of 5 cents
for the plaintiff.
Judge Baldwin's action was taken
on motion of the defendants who asked
several days ago that the court direct
a verdict of nominal damages for
Phelps. The costs will be taxed against
Phelps' contention in the case was
that the Standard and its three former
subsidiaries had entered into a com
bination whereby competition was so
stifled that he had been unable to sell
the product of his oil leases for the
sum he would have received had there
been no "combine."
DEATH OF JOHN BENCH.
Monday, January 29, occurred the
death of John Bench, one of Perrys

road. Ten years ago he purchased the
fine farm and home where he resided
until death claimed him.
