Getting Rid of Colds.

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
Lof making loans for one or two
years, the Federal Farm Loan Act
provides for long time loans which
are paid off by small semi-annual
payments Thus the worries and
uncertainties of frequent renew
als are done awayAvith.
The -Federal Farm Loan Act
provides 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.
rwill be at my homo on the farm
three miles west of Perrysburg on
Saturday and will be glad to ex
plain the details and accept appli
cations for loans. If you want
further information, come to see
DONALD R. ACKLIN-
Dreadful Cough Cured. '
A severe cold is often followed by a
rough cough, for which Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has proven especially
valuable. Mrs. F. W. Olsen, Marys
ville,. Mo., writes: "About two years
ago my little boy Jean caught a severe
cold and coughed dreadfully for days.
I tried a number of cough medicines,
but nothing did him any good until I
gave him Chamberlain's' Cough Rem
edy. It relieved his cough right away
and before he had finished taking one
bottle he was cured. I think it is just
fine for children."
Cables Improve With Age.
It Is found that the insulation re

with the age of tho .cable, when It He's
in the ground, because the moisture
it possesses appears to be dried out.
LETTERS FROM THE "VETS"
ANXIOUS TO GET HOME
One Yank GoeB Over Top Six
Times Before Huns Get Him.
IS BEST FRIEND
In a letter to a friend, Albert
Reed, employed by the Perrysburg
Union Delivery before entering
tho service, tells how he was
wounded by a German machine
gun bullet on his sixth dash "over-the-top."
The bullet passed through his
leg about !six inches above the
knee but fortunately no bones
were injured. The wound, Reed
says, is getting along jine and
doesn't bother him much; also
there are many nice nurses in the
Edmund Schuster writes- that
the Y. M. C. A. has flunked out on
furnishing them with paper. "The
K. C.'s have sent me paper from
Paris, but as far as any regiment
is concerned, wo all think that
the 'Y' is a frost.' The K. C.'s
havn't done much either, but one
good point in their favor is that
they gave everything away. The
'Salvation Army' is the best out
fit over here."
Paul Schroeder received this one
from Ross Schuster:
Jan. 26, 1919.
Dear Friend Paul: Still the
days grow into weeks and no mail
from you. No doubt when the
armistice was signed you thought
most oi us would be home by now.
The u. S. government has a
mighty big job on its hands trans
porting the army home, so large a
job that it will be nearly a year
before all are home.

that each day that passes brings
our landing day at Hoboken one
I left Hoboken eight months ago
tonight at six thirty on the trans
port "Von Steuben," formerly
the German "Princess .Wjlhelm
II." It was armed with 21 large
guns. We had a convoy of ten
other transports and 13 destroyers
and the battleship "North Caro
lina." I was in Paris June 15.
Dutchmen raided the suburbs,
we left on the 16th at noon.
Our division went into action

of Soissons and eventually hear
Chateau-Thierry and up north' of
Fere-En-Tardenois to the Vesle,
where wo were relieved by the

A Bank Preference
A savings bank book is the best kind
pi business and personal reference. It is
evidence of habits of industry, self-denial
. Saving regularly indicates proper con
sideration for future welfare as against
whims or follies of the hour. This is a
stepping stone to the social virtues which
are held in esteem.
As a proof of business reliability and
social desirability a savings account is con
vincing. Interest at the rate of 4 paid on both
Savings Accounts and Certificates of Deposit.
