LETTER OF CONSOLATION
To Mother of One Who Paid the
, Many are the heartaches of the
"War Mothers whoso sons will
never ' ' come hack. ' ' But to know
thqt all, the sacrifices of young
manhood were not in vain gives
new hope and renewed strength to
those suffering the -great loss.
A letter from.a comrade of the
fallen hero brings to the bereaved
parent contentment in knowing
that her. son was ever in the right.
Jan. 17, 1919.
Mrs. Win. Wellstead,
.Having received your letter
some few days agojregarding Mil
lard's sickness and death, I will
say there was nothing extraordi
nary about his illness. You know
how pneumonia works. I will say
that I personally have heard him
speak of his mother often ts only a
son can speak of his parent. He
had many friends among my boys
and was well thought of by one
and all. I was not with him at the
time of his death for he was moved
to a hospital several days before
I was grieved to hear of, his
death, he being the first onellost.-
As to bis spiritual welfare, I
firmly believe he was prepared.for
the end when he went' to- the. Jios
pital. . , ,
I assure you, you have my heart-,
felt sympathy in losing a son.soj
noble as he. However, millions of
mothers are suffering the loss of a
beloved son, more in France than"
America", but thanks to a higher
power it is all over.

comes president in place of Robert
W. Pew, retired. Frank Reis be
comes secretary in the place of G.
B. Lownsbury. The retiring pres
ident and secretary made appro
priate addresses after which con
siderable business was accom.;
plished. The committee on pro-.
posed achievements made its rer
port, and below are some of. the
things the Association will' at:
tempt to bring about for Perrys
burg the coming year:
A new directory for our city,
Sustain the council in paving

To father the organization of a

posed deep water canal from To-

Dreadful Cough Cured.

rough cough, for which, Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has proven especially

A Civic Center like this, where
unselfish men gather together,
should be in every community and
town in the country. It can be
compared to the old New England
"Town Meeting" where everv
man was a member, where all the
laws and the usages of the com-
munity was determined upon,
where war or peace was set in
motion. Those old "Town Meet-
ings" admitted everyone to their
deliberations. They could keep no
one out. Individually, they were
the organizations that made
America free. They were far
reaching in their influence. They
determined national as well as
local questions. Tt was to. them
that tho country listened. Your

A LETTER TO OHIO FARMERS
Farmers' everywhere are be
coming more and more interested
in the Federal Farm Loan Act be
cause they know that it gives them
the only kind of a farm loan 'that
is suited to their needs. Instead
"dl making loans for one or two
years, the Federal Fann Loan Act
provides for long time loans which
arc paid off by small semi-annual
payments Thus the worries and
uncertainties of frequent renew
als are done away with.
The Federal Farm Loan Act
prvides for the establishment of
land banks all over the country to
attend to the business of making
farm loans. I represent one of
these land banks and if you are
interested, I want to hear from
you. The act prohibits any com
mission being charged, and under
our plan loans are made 'direct to
farmers with no association to join
and no stock to buy.
I will be at my home on tho farm
tlree miles west of Perrysburg on
Saturday and will be glad to ex
plain the details and accept appli
cations for loans. If you want
