The Doctor Away From HomeiWhen
People areoften very much disap
pointed to find that their family phy
sician iB away from home when they
most need his services. Diseases like
pain in the stomach and bowels, colic
and diarrhoea require prompt treat
ment, and have in many instances
proven fatal before medicine could be
procured or a pnysician summoned.
The right way is to keep at hand a
bottle of Chamberlain's Colic and
Diarahoea Remedy, No physician can
prescribe a better medicine for these
diseases. By having it in the house
you escape much pain and Buffering
Catch Gang Believed About to Do
Shortly after midnight Friday
night noises near the hand-crir
house on Railroad street attracted
the attention of the village police
force, and upon investigation it
was found several strangers were
helping themselves to the tools in
the building. When ordered to
throw up their hands the thieves
began firing on their command
ants. Many shots were exchanged
and the hand-car house looked like
a seive the next morning. None
of the shots took affect, however,
as none of the bandits were left
behind in their flight. They made
a safe getaway, for the time being,
but later in the morning a machino
load of "Preservers of Peace and
Property" heavily armed with
high-power rifles, sawed-off shot
guns, etc., were ordered to
"halt!" as they rounded the bend
in the river road near the Secor
farm, and upon doing so connected
with what is believed to be the
gang who were driven from the
vicinity of the railroad an hour
before. The desperadoes were
somewhat surprised when they
saw the "arsenal" dismount from
the auto and with no trouble sub
mitted to arrest. Five young men
comprised the gang taken, one
dressed in the U. S. army uniform
and the other four wore navy out
fits, A Cheveolet five-pasenger auto,
answering the description of one
stolen at Erie, Pa., was found in
They were placed under arresf
and held in the village callibouse
until Biwling Green authorities
took charge of them.
A PRICELESS RELIC
The Fort Meigs Commission
has been the recipient of an im
portant relic of Perrysburg 's early
days. The donor is Mr. Fred
The gift is the old iron safe
which stood sr many years in the
office of the Exchange Hotel, and
which contains the register of the
hotel for many years back. I
This relic will be added to the
many that have already been re
ceived by the Fort Meigs Commis
sion and will form a nucleus for
the museum to be built at the fort
in the not distant future.
Appropriation has already been
made by the state for new cases
for the relics.
The commission will be glad to
receive from other citizens relics
of whatever nature which pertain
to the early pioneer days in the

FARM BUREAU PLANS TRD?
TO EXPERIMENT STATION
The Wood County Farm Bureau
has planned the annual trip to the
Experiment Station at Wooster
for Friday, June 20th.
The party Avill go by' auto to
Wooster on Thursday afternoon,
spending Thursday night in AVoos
ter, visiting the Experiment Sta
tion Friday, and returning to
Wood county Friday evening. The
distance is approximately 125
miles from BoAvling Green.
The value of a trip to the Ex
periment Station is realized only
after making the trip. Those who
made the trip a year ago Avill, for
tne most part, return this year.
.Because of the necessity of mak
ing sleeping reservations in AVoos
ter, those Avho expect to go are re
quested to notify the county agent
by June 17th.
Cleaning the Sea of Death Bombs
No Small Task.
Carl. Grimes, who spent four
years in the U. S. navy before the
war, has been receiving letters
from an "Old Buddy" on his ship,
who is now overseas and his last
letter tells of his experience
sweeping the ocean of the mines
and death bombs scattered by the
Germans during the war.
Bobolink, Kirkwall, Scot.,
April 2, 1919.
Dear Friend Carl: Well Carl,
we just got in from mine field
Ihis morning, but I don't think
we will get back in the next time
wc go out for tlits ship won't
stand many more jars of the kind
she has had the last two clays. I
was knocked off my feet from two
explosions', and three mines rolled
along our bottom and shot up to
the surface when they got astern.
"We have some kind of electric
gear that keeps them from going
off .when they come in contact
with our bottombut God help us
if that gear ever goes on the bum
while we are sweeping. It did for
about an hour yesterday morning
and we stood by The life rafts until
it got going again. There is
enough T. N. T. in one of those
mines to blow up Perrysburg.
We sighted 28 German floating
mines and sank most of them by
rifle fire. The Gorman mines have
four horns on them, that's how Ave
tell them and you have to hit one
of the horns square on the end be
fore they will explode, pretty hard
to do with a rifle but we can sink
them easy. In the last two days
between the 11 sweepers we blew
up 280 mines and ruined about
$10,000 worth of sweeping gear.
Pretty expensive work, not count
ing the loss of lives and ships
when they start going up. For I
know all of these ships will never
go back to the States. You
probably won't hear from me
again for two or three months for
while we are sweeping I work
from 4 a. m'. until 10 p. m. with
hardly time for meals. Guess I'll
ring off. From vour old shipmate,
GOOD PRICES FOR WHEAT
Farmers of Lucas, Fulton, Ot

mately the folloAving prices' for

$2.12 to $2.15; No. 2, $2.09 to

everything under No. 3 to be sold
on merit. This Avas agreed at a
Avheat grading and marketing con
fernee held at Toledo Thursday,
June 5, .attended by 200 farm
bureau officers, threshermen,
graindealers and millers from
those counties. The price is based
on the government guarantee of
$2,39y- at NeAV York Avith alloAV
ance for the margin of the local
grain dealer, the freight to market
and the terminal freight changes :
It Avas further agreed that the
crop should be bought on grades
established by the fedral bureau
of markets, and that elevators not
already equiped for this purpose
should purchase the necessary ap
In order to aA'oid exhaustion of
the country's storage facilities,
since the guaranteed price offers
no incentive to hold grain, it Avas
further recomended that the farm
er bo allowed in addition to the
minimum price a storage charge
of one cent per bushel for each 15
days beginning July 1 and con
tinuing until October 1 Avhen the
increase should be one cent per
bushel a month for the next three

against accepting any price sub

late and consequently rejected.

WOMEN SELLING W. S. S.
Ohio women have "hopped off"
on their June campaign to instill
the happy habit of thrift and
further the sale of War Savings
Stamps. In every county in the
state, hundreds of women are
making house to house canvasses
to secure pledges for the purchase
of AVar Savings Stamps during
Announcement from Washing

needs five millions of dollars to
pay its Avar bills has caused the
Ohio AVar Savings Committee to

Grand Reception and Elaborate
Banquet Given Soldier Boys.
Although there are about a
dozen of Perrysburg boys still in
the service overseas, it Avas deemed
advisable by the Red Cross Auxili
ary at their last meeting before
disbandment to give a reception
for all returned Porrvuburg boys
who had been in the service of
Uncle Sam before they scattered
to the' four Avinds. If they were,
to Avait till all Avere homo it would
be probably a year before the re
ception could be given without
slighting those who are now over
seas, consequently a largo portion
of those that arc noAV at home
would be scattered beyond reach.
Lt. Colonel Geo. P. Greenhalgh
gave a very pleasing address in
which he paid a high tribute to
the enlisted men and non-commissioned
officers, for their noble
Avork in winning the Avar. Mean

as enlisted men, and they, and not
the officers, Avere entitled to tue
most credit, in the great struggle
Hon. Judge BaldAvin of Bowling
Green pleased the audience with
one of his ahvays interesting
speeches and he also paid a high
tribute to the boys in khaki. Mr.
