day Evening at 7:30
Thanksgiving day is for all
Americans and should appeal to
us all without distinction as wor
shiper of our God, as lovers of
our country and as friends of man
kind. In the midst of our coun
try's unrest there is much to call
forth our fervent gratitude. The
Lord of tho harvest awaits our
praise. Let us respond, whole
heartedly, in the spirit of Whit
"I have no answer for myself or
Save that I learned beside my
'All is of God that is and is to be :
And God is good.' Let this suffice
Besting in childlike trust upon his
Who moves to his great'ends un-
thwarted by the ill."
Dr. W. H. Phelcy will conduct
the service. The Rev. AV. H. Spy
bey, pastor of the Methodist Epis
copal church, will offer the prayer,
and the Rev. 0. D. Swank, pastor
of the Evangelical church will
preach the sermon. There will be
special music and joyous congre
gational singing. Ther is no more
fitting way to end what we trust
will be a perfect day for all.
In our last week's issue there
appeared a report of what had
been accomplished by volunteer
citizens in repairing two of our
cross streets. To give- credit to
those that furnished trucks and
teams to haul the gravel from the
river bed, we gave the list of all
who so contributed, but the com
mittee we interviewed must have
had sleeping sickness or else their
"forgettery" was -working over
time, because they failed to give
us the name of "Charles Maddy."
Charles furnished a team and
wagon and worked all day as hard
as anyone, therefore deserved
"honorable mention" also.
Mr. E. L. Gay was accused, of
not being on the joh, but wishes to
state that he furnished a truck
and two wagons in the afternoon.
, Ohp you can't beat tho citizens
of good old Perrysburg any time.

Journal for big advertisement con-
Today is Thanksgiving. Tills day is peculiarly an
American holiday. Our forefathers, viewing with solicitous
concern our future, wisely set apart for them and us, a day
to be dedicated to the thoughtful Consideration of the many
blessings that attend us as we -journey along the road of our
national existence. So, in the mad rush of daily life, it were
well that we stop to take an inventory of our possessions
and not too much to covet that which we deem expedient
to our happiness; but which on the contrary would add to
the burdens we are already called upon to bear.
Our possessions are many. Our harvests have been
great. In great measure, we are enjoying the pursuits of
life, liberty and happiness. Famine and disease, for the
most part are strangers in the land. The boys have returned
home from war. Peace draws nearer, and while discontent
reigns in remote places, Jhe signs tell us that our great
country will soon be its self again.. In the knowledge of nil
this, it were well that we give thanks; that we render to
each due credit for what he is and does, to make this na
tion, this state, and this community a snfe and a fit dwelling
place for our fellowmcn ; and that Ave fail not to render to
tho Almighty all thanks for His beneficent care and pro
tection, with which He has safeguarded us and our great
nation. D. R. CANFIELD,

CATCH TIRE THIEVES

Laurel, Indiana, Identifies
Four young men giving their
residence as Toledo and their
names as John Nord, Harry
Stewart, Robert Dawson, Harry
Levcrsig, were picked up in Per
rysburg early Sunday morning
and proved tobe tho right parties
who stole a machine load of cas
ings and inner tubes at Laurel,
Indiana, Friday night.
The machine was loaded with
stolen tires and inner tubes and
lay out on the Dixie Highway
near the Bert King farm all night
Saturday. Early Sunday morning
the young men bought gasoline of
Mr. King and started on their
way, but when their machine
"threw a tire" as they rounded
the curve at the jail corner in
Perrysburg they were forced to
stop and were nabbed by the
town's const abulary, who had
been on the lookout for them.
Their loot consisted of 12 new
casings and 46 inner tubes, which
were identified to tho number,
size, etc., by the owner, J. E. Hoff
man, & Son, of Laurel, Ind. who
came here Tuesday and claimed
their property. The Hoffmans
operate a garage at Laurel.
The four bandits were bound
over in Judge Cook's court to the
county officials at Bowling Green,
where they await trial.
Five other tires, supposed to
have been stolen, were not found
when a check up was made. Just
how these were disposed of could
not be learned.
