Preaching is not the easiest
thing in the world. To preach the
gospel so that at all times the faith
of real everyday life is followed
is difficult. Excursions into litera
ture are so tempting, sociology,
psychology, history, philosophy
are so inviting. And yet he must
keep close to Me. A father said
of his son one day: My boy says
he gets all the literary things he
wants at the university and all the
civic things ho' wants at the clubs,
so he would like to find a church
which 'sticks to the things that
help a man through the Aveek.

trophies be allotted to the Thir

since this part of the country is
historic, the placing of somei relics

The question of permitting the

Main street has been recently
brought up for consideration, and
if this were permitted our town
would be stepping back 20 years,

But on the contrary, Perrysburg

and it is planned to have all
wooden poles removed from

This modern improvement will be
a great credit to our village, not

arrange all necessary procedure

made in the near future.

Forgot 'What Ho Needed.
From the Republican Mfc Gilead,
Ohio: The editor had an -interesting
experience some time ago, when a
young gentleman came to this office
and asked for a copy 'of the Morrow
County Republican. He i scrutinized it
carefully when a copy was handed him,
and then said: "Now I knowl" "What
is it you are looking for?" we'inquired.
"My wife sent me after a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, and I
forgot the name. I went to several
stores and the clerks named over
everything in the line on the shelf ex
cept 'Chamberlain.' Ill try again, and
I'll never go home without,-Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy." Thef Republi
can would suggest to the proprietors
of stores that they post their clerks,
and never let them substitute. Cus
tomers lose faith in stores where sub
stituting is permitted, to say nothing
of the injustice to makers of good
goods and the disappointment of customers.
