and every member of the cast was let

Every member of the oast and the
various committees have put forth
every effort to make these nights the
biggest events of the season and all
indicaions point that their efforts will
be rewarded. The Ft. Meigs Grange,
under whose aupices the play is being
given have every reason to feel en
couraged as the success of "The Run
aways" is already assured.
Music will be furnished by the high

John Hufford was born in Per
rysburg township June 28, 1864,
and departed this life April 26,
1919, at the age of 72 years, 9
months and 28 days.
He was married to Miss Mary
White October 23, 1890. To this
union were born five children, four
sons and one daughter. One son,
Frank, and the daughter pre
ceded him in death.
He was born, raised and lived
in Perrysburg township and died
at his home in the 'village of Per
rysburg after an illness of which
he suffered for the past six months.
Those who mourn the death or
such a faithful companion are
his wife, three sons, Bert, Charles
and William, two brothers, three
sisters and seven grandchildren,

Perrysburg has always felt
proud of her records anywhere.
Every drive, whatever it may have
been, has always been most pat
riotically carried "Over the Top."
In each of the four preceding Lib
erty Loan drives Perrysburg has
more than subscribed her share.
This time, without a doubt she
will again do justice to that record
of which we are all so proud.
Maumee is to be congratulated
for having more than subscribed
their quota early in the drive, by
going over the $98,000 mark last
A comparison of figures as sent
out by the Federal Reserve Bank
will very easily explain why Per
rysburg is a little slow in making
her quota as compared to our
friends across the river:
Bank Deposits $434,000
Victory Loan Quota. 66,100
Bank Deposits $896,000
Victory Loan Quota. 136,500
Subscriptions amounting to over
$100,000 have been reported to
Chairman W. J. Veitch up to the
time the Journal goes to press and
belore the final close of the drive
Perrysburg as always before will
without a doubt be again over-the-top."
