series of talks on vocational guid
ance which the principal Is en
deavoring to procure for the high
school. The talk given by Dr.
Pheley was very interesting and
helpful tocL bringing out many
useful things and examples from
his own lite.
He emphasized many things
which make up a sucessful busi
ness life among which were at
tractiveness to others, courtesy
and a pleasing personality.
Last Friday afternoon P. H. S.
suffered defeat at the hands of
Prairie Depot by a score of 12 to
7. This was caused principally by
being out-weighed by our oppon
ents and also by the bad playing
on the whole by the team. Prairie
made her touchdowns in the first
and second quarters while ours
was made by our captain and.
Quarterback Thornton. Dibling
then kicked a goal, making our
total seven points. P. H. S. plays

THE LETTER WE RECEIVED
Dear Louis : I noticed you were
not present at the Civic meeting
last Thursday evening and won
dered why till I realized what
Thursday night meant to j-ou. So
knowing you would like to know
what happened will try to slip the
information to you. Funny how
some of our busiest men can find
time to attend a meeting, where
the only things discussed is the
welfare and betterment of this old
There is the president, Dr.
Rheinfrank, he, besides a hospital
Full of sick to attend to, chases
over a hundred miles of territory.
And our mayor, Dr. Canfield, how
the devil does he do it? As near
as I can understand entire world is
after him and the council to find
ways and means to make a fifth of
a million improvements without
the fifth of a million. He should
be appointed treasurer of the
United States. McAdoo's accom
plishment in the late war is noth
ing compared to what the mayor
is doing. Then Mr. Pew was there
as usual. Of course there's noth
ing to occupy his time or attention.
I might mention also Messrs.
Neitz, Munger, Franej', Averill
and twenty or thirty others.
Well, Louis, the Civic Associa
tion went on record favoring the
bond issue to fix our citv build
ing. If it don't carry I under
stand our mayor and council, also
fire department will have to find
new quarters. If they have to
move what do you think of that
old shop of Mladenus' for council?
Anyway it would be better than
the present room; it's not damp
and foul. That takes care of the
council, Louis, but what shall we
dr with the new fire engine. I
guess George Munger, Jr., will go
bugs if the engine he worked so
hard for has to stand out in the
street, don't you?
And what about the volunteer
firemen ? Of course they get paid
for their time, three dollars a fire,
is it not, Louis? That is enough
for any man who risks his life per
haps or ruins a forty dollar suit
of clothes; he's only in the hole
thirty-seven dollars. What do
they want a fire house for? Let
them drain their hose by hanging
them from a tree, even if it should
be zero weather. Of course if the
bond issue don't pass wc could
buy a tent for the council and
Shell nole avenue was under
discussion and while I did not get
all that was said because George
Munger gave me a cigar and was
busy keeping it lit. Not one of
those things he gave us, Louis, but
a really cigar? It appears that a
plan is under consideration where
by that beauty spot will be
marred. By the way, Louis, is
that includetLjn the five and one
half miles of paved streets you tell
about in that classy pamphlet you
left at the house jfor me to send
out in my letters?
The town seems to be suffering
for a lack of funds I heard that
the tax valuation is only two mil
lion. Ever try to-buy a piece of
property here, Louis? Appears
to me the tax valuation should be
somewhere around twenty million.
Just one thing more, Louis, the
Civic Association moved and sec
onded that a minstrel show be
given for the amusemnt of the peo
ple. Details will be worked out
later. I bet it will be a dinger.
Well, Louis, that is all I can re
member. If you see anyone who is
interested, tell him to be there
next time. Yours,
P. S. One 'thing more. I never
saw such a harmonious body of
men. When a motion comes up
for vote, the ayes have it.
LIVE HOGS HIT LOWEST
PRICE IN 212 YEARS
Live hoc prices fell below the
$15 level Monday,' when a drop of
2d cents per hundred pounds for
pork in the hoof, set the work on
heavies at $14.75. This was the
lowest price in about 2. years.
Receipts at the Toledo stock
yards were liberal.
In some instances, the cut in
prices was even greater, as in light
yorkers, where a drop oL' a half-
dollar was recorded.
Catle, calves, sheep and lambs
moved slowly and the top prices
on the best grades were lower.

The fact is, the dry people of
Ohio are very well pleased with
the present legal status of the dry
question. Last year Ohio adopted
stale wide prohibition by "means
of amending the state constitution
to that effect. Our state legisla
ture last winter enacted the neces
sary laws, known as the Crabb
Act, to put state prohibition into
effect. Hence as far as Ohio is
concerned the drys are in splen
On December 28, 1917, congress
proposed an amendment to the
Ignited States constitution provid
ing for national prohibition. In
order to adopt the amendment it
required that the legislature of
three-fourths of all the states (be
ing thirty-six states( ratify the
amendment. Six years was the
time allowed in which to obtain
the ratification by the required
number of states. However, on
January 16, 1919, in less than one
year and one month the necessary
thirty-six states had ratified the
amendment, which is to become
effective January 16, 1920. Not
only was the amendment ratified
by the necessary thirty-six states
but before July 1, 1919, 45 of our
states had ratified it, making the
ratification in the United States
almost unanimous because the
three states that did not ratify
were three of the smallest states
in the union Rhode Island, Con

ests have come to realize that un
less they can secure the repeal of
the prohibition amendments to
both the state and national con
stitutions the dajs of their exist

liquor interests are endeavoring
to have the voters of Ohio adopt
two amendments to the state con
stitution, either of which if
adopted will not only repeal state
prohibition, but will permit the
sale of any liquor containing 3.45
per cent or less of alcohol as com

Youth and Hope
linger longer with those who acquire
the savings bank habit.
Age is not wholly anaatter of years but as
much of mental attitude, optimism and buoy
ancy. Discouragement, cynicism make a man old
before his time make a young man old.
There is nothing more inspiring than a young
old man; there is nothing more contemptible
than an old young man.
Those who have used their spare earnings to
provide for reserves or to plan for the future will
have a brighter outlook on life. They will re
main young with passing years.
Start the savings bank habit early and you
will not only live longer, but you will be younger
when you are old.
