M WATER METERS
f MUST RF INSTALLED
Price Of $9.55 Each Not to Hold '
Good After Present Suppy
To Water Consumers:
By the action of the Board of Public
AffairB you were duly notified through
the Perrysburg Journal recently that,
beginning on or before July 1st, 192,
all consumers of water within the vil
lage must provide themselves with
meters; that 'on and from that date
flat rate service will bo abolished and
water sold only through meters.
Tho Board has carefully investigated
meters and their cost. This investiga
tion shows prices of meters gradually
advancing with no indication of a re
duction.' Therefore, tho Board has
purchased from the Union Meter Co.
fifty (50) meters, which will be sold
at actual cost of nine dollars and fifty
fivo cents ($9.55) each. This price
cannot be -secured and will not be
guaranteed for tho future. The above
price was secured only upon ordering
the quantity of 50. We may be able
to secure 50 more if ordered imme
diately. Tho Union and Thompson meters
have been approved by tho Board and
no other will be allowed except as they
may hereafter be 'approved.
Those who 'desire to partake of this
meter at cost plan may do so by
prompt action. The first fifty (50)
meters now ordered will be sold to the
first fifty consumers who deposit $9.55
each and furnish the undersigned the
necessary information, givinir property
owner's name, house number and lot
number. No other than the Superin
tendent of Water Works isauthorized
to install a meter and anyone so doing
will be acting in violation of law.
By order of Board of Public Affairs.
G. B. LOWNSBURY, Clerk.

William Fox will present "Check

TAKE MUCH INTEREST,.
IN BUILDING ASSii
Meeting Well Attended With
Prospects of Early Organ
ization in View.
Tho building and loan meeting of
last Friday, night was well attended
and much interest was manifested in
The address on building and loan
associations by Mr. K. D. Haymaker, '
of Defiance, was very instructive and
interesting and educational and it was
to be regretted that every man in town
did not hear his talk. As a result of
this meeting a committee consisting of
John H. Wilson, Dr. H. R. Roether, A.
L. Cocanour, Geo. J. Munger and E.
L. Clay were appointed to investigate
more thoroughly and report at the
next meeting of the Civic Association,
which will be held on Thursday even
ing, February 12.
If enough interest is shown at this
meeting by a sufficient number of
people in town a building and loan as
sociation for Perrysburg will probably
be organized. But it is a big job and
is not a one-man job, nor a job for a
committee, but will need the united
effort of a large number of citizens
and every one who is interested should
get busy at once and lend their serv
ices and co-operation. Come out to the '
pext civic meeting if you are inter
ested, whether you are a member of
the civic or not. Don't wait till the
opportunity is past but act now. It is
up to the citizens of Perrysburg.
Saw His Shadow
There can be no doubt that, if the
ftround hog was out Monday,-he saw
his shadow, and according to the be
lief of some we are sure to have six
weeks more of winter. '' But the
ground hog's prestige as a weather
prophet is somewhat overshadowed
this year, by the actions of thewild.
geeset for Sandusky reports a large
flock flying north'over the lake, last
Friday afternoon, and according to
lake sailors, this is a sure sign of an
early spring. Robins, also said to be
a forerunner of spring, have been re
ported at Fremont and Norwalk.
