NEW PEACE ARMY
Our army of volunteers is fast
filling up, is the report from Re
cruiting Headquarters. The United
States Array Recruiting Office at
416 Adams street, Toledo, Ohio, is
being overworked in its efforts to
""answer all the questions of appli
cants' who are seeking admission
V the great peace army of the
jn United States or to go overseas
yy with the voluntcor force of 50,000
men recently authorized. This
splendid opportunity is being of
fered to all Americans, and the
character and appearance of the
men being accepted at this station
and its sub-stations promises to
make our future army a far supe
rior force than it was before. The
choice of a particular branch of
service, the choice of almost any
place in the world in which the en
listment can be served and the
choice of the length of service (one
'I "jOr three years) is the cause of this
J (large number of applicants, but
whatever is their reason we will be
able to look forward with pride to
this coming army of ours if the
good work continues. The recruit
ing office reports that there is va
cancies for 10 men in the Motor
Transport Corps, Panama and that
man will be -accepted for service
in all the branches and depart
ments of the army including the
Air Service, also that men will be
accepted, in addition to the 50,000
authorized for the A. B. R, for
service in the Philippine Islands,
China, Hawaii and Panama.

Perrysburg, for many years used
as a law office by our late D. K.
Hollenbeck, is being1 moved from
its location, on the lot adjoining the

Mr. R. C. Pew has purchased the

As space this week, won't permit,
a very interesting history of the
building will follow in next week's

In spite ot the rainy weather
for the pasttwo weeks our evange
listic meetings have been well at
tended and a great interest mani
fested by all. People who have
been attending these services do
not want to miss any as they are so
instructive and helpful. Just what
each person and home needs at
this critical time when so many
changes are taking place. The
Easter day service was a most
blessed day. After the Easter
program was given the Evangelist
made a sympathetic and touching
appeal to the young people to de
cide for Christ and as a result to
this and the efforts of the per
sonal workers, the inquiry room
was well filled With anxious boys
and girls desiring to have Jesus to
be their Soviour by a personal ex
perience. So determined were
these dear young people that they
tarried and prayed until they be
came satisfied that the Lord had
pardoned their sins and they were
made happy in Him. "We are look
ing 'forth .to a still more blessed,
week as each service is getting
better. How instructive all these
services have been both afternoon

Are you helping Perrysburg go "over the top'' in this

Americanization is, after all, only education for good
citizenship, whether by a native-born or foreign-born.
Never let over one trouble weary you. Some people
have three : past trouble, present and future.
Our times are so fast that the man who says that it
can't be done is interrupted by someone doing it.
Some people have so many feelings that they are
always having some of them stepped on.
The person who has ability and uses it for the good
of others is worth his weight in gold.

ELM TREE IN U. S.
The largest elm tree in the
United States is in Rathbone, near
Marietta, according to -tree ex-
500 to 700 years old. The tree has
a spread of 165 feet and has five
Kmbs branching out from the main
trunk as large as ordinary trees.
Another famous tree in Ohio, a
sycamore, was located about 1 mile
below Beverlv on the Mnskinciiin
river. Records collected by the
flpnnrftnpnf nf T?ni,nsti'V nt ("lliin

early French traveler made notes
of the tree because of its amazing
size. His record shows that in

STORE EGGS TO AVOID
HIGH WINTER PRICES
With eggs going into storage at
1 39 and 40 'cents a dozen, poultry
specialists ot the College ot Agri
culture say that eggs are. almost
sure to be high in price next win
ter. To avoid these prices the con
sumer will find it profitable to buy
eggs now and preserve them in a
solution of water glass. '
The following method is practi
cal for the housewife who desires
to preserve a case (30 dozen) of
eggs for winter use :
Obtain three pints of water
glass (Sodium Solicatc) at a drug
store and mix it with 27 pints of
cool boiled water. Place fresh,
clean eggs carefully in a 10-gallon
earthenware jar. Be sure that
none of tho eggs are cracked, old,
After putting the eggs in the
jar, place a large plate over them
and pour in the water glass solu
tion until the plate is submerged
under two inches of liquid. If one
desires to preserve the eggs from
day and day, the solution may bo
nut in the iar and tho aaas nlncerl
(herein as gathered until the jar
is full. Tic heavy paper over the
top of the jar and move it careful
ly to a cool place where it may re
main until one is ready to use the
eggs. Remove them from tho solu
tion as needed and wash with cold
water. If one desires to boil them,
prick one or two small holes in
each egg with a needle. This will
prevent the contents from break
ing the shell.
