every one in the room maintained
a death-like silence a pretty fem

teacher's attention, but in a most
dignified and quiet manner. The'
teacher judging from the vague,
uninterested look on the maiden's
face, that perhaps she wished to iir
quire as to what day school would
close next spring or something less
definite. Instead to the dismay of
every one present she (Vera

The moving pictures at the
Methodist church last Sunday eve
ning included several reels of war
and victory films produced by the
Photographic Department of the
United States Army. The over
seas scenes were of those sections
and activities which the 37th
Division soldiers had a part. War
with its mud and grime and end
less hardships was vividly .por

panorama the victory parade in
which the soldiers in the streets of
New York celebrated the fineness
of peace. All were striking pre

the most strenuous obligation of
good citizenship to war for the
preservation of human rights and
liberties. And the American
army still needs men to serve the
nation in these heroic tasks. In

"Well, I don't agree with you
on that oldest subscriber business
by a long shot," said Mr. Mahr.
"The fact is, I came to Perrysburg
on the 13th of March, 1854 and in
the following spring I subscribed
for the Journal and have taken it
ever since, which will make it 65
years next spring. Now that looks
to me as though I had VanHellen
beat by some several years."
All right, friend Mahr, you hold
the medal up to the present time,
but there's no telling how soon
some other citizen will produce the
"figgers" to put you in the dis
card. Who's record is better than
Mr. Mahr's, is what the Journal

faithfully in the gravel pit filling
the trucks and wagons, while ten
or twelve, each on the cross streets,
leveled the new roads.
Sufficient gravel was placed on
these connecting links to a better
route through Perrysburg to make
it passable ror the coming winter,
