Medina SENTINEL VOLUME THMTY-EIGHT MEDINA, OHIO, THURSDAY, .SEPTEMBER 8, 1921. J No. 3. TOT? g" -Af Si. m I:. II 150,000 EXTRA 0TE OFFER ENDS TUESDAY Real Race for $1114 in Prizes Now On With List of Competitors Nar rowed Down 39 Names To Be Fast Stepping From Now On. Mrs. Levi Fiemming of Chippewa Lake romps in a winner this week. She grabs off the $5 offered the contestants turning in the great amount of cash subscription business for the week ending September 6th, noon. For the period ending September 6th results were decidedly bad for all hands concerned. This contest needs a dose of "pep" or "ginger" or some sort of stimulant. As a result of the lagging efforts a person could enter RIGHT TODAY and by diligent efforts win out over those that have been in the race from the very beginning And another thing, some of the candidates seem to be overconfident. Overconfidence has lost more races, caused the "other fellow" that plods right along, to win that which we thought we "had cinched." Occasionally a contestant says "I have seen everybody right around my home section." Well, the whole county, state, and nation is yours to work in. But really, the county has not been "scratched" yet, and when one works over the section around tee's home, then branch out a little farther and take in other . portions of the county in your canvass. Medina, Medina Rural Roues, Lodi and Routes, Leroy, Spencer and Routes, Mallet Creek and Routes, Brunswick and Valley City and Routes could stand a ouse-to-house canvass with good results. Now the contestants really secure REAL RESULTS in the way of subscriptions during the .period ending September 13th will pils up a tremendous vote, for 150,000 EXTRA VOTES are given with each $22.50 turned in. By making the MOST of this big vote offer a REAL WORKER is going to progress far on the road towards winning the $694 Chevrolet Touring Car or other big prize. The list of contestants has been radically pruned. A lot more allegated workers are scheduled to go soon unless they WAKE UP. This is a race for WORKERS. The prizes offered are so valuable that any person who does not wish to give SOME TIME and more than a pref unctory effort to the contest is wast ing his or her own time, and ours, too. "There is no royal road to know ledge" wrote an ancient Greek phil osopher. He had been . trying to teach some little, loafing, future Grecian king his lesson that morn ing. It takes WORK to accummulate wunom. H'.froSM And it takes WOKK to win a prize in The Medina Sentinel's auto con test . One of the biggest troubles the Con test Manager has is to make folks understand that "sitting" at home thinking about it" will not bring a priae. To secure subscriptions one must get out and meet people -must J ask them to subscribe to The Medina Sentinel, or if they are already sub scribers get them to pay up any in debtedness and to renew for a year or so in advance. One lady came to The Medina Sen tinel office Tuesday and turned in ten one-year subscriptions. , During the conversation which fol lowed she said: '.'You know I WAS ONLY OUT ONE AFTERNOON ABOUT TWO HOURS AND GQT THESE TEN NEW SUBSCRIP TIONS. IT'S EASY." Now that lady won't win the Chev rolet auto unless she "wakes up." She has all kinds of time not a great deal of housework to attend' to children to clutter up the front yard and bother her, and the use of a car to get about over the country, and she has that knack about her .which makes getting subscriptions EASY. We know other ladies who .are busy 8 to 10 hours a day in an office and others are busy housewives. And) any one of these will likely poll a bigger vote than she who works two hours a week. For these oth ers USE EVERY SPARE MINUTE and they find a lot of MINUTES when they try. 1 Knowing the value of your time and how to use it is what COUNTS in this life. We all have exactly the same num- ber of MINUTES in each HOUR the same number of HOURS in ' each DAY and each WEEK we live. The WAY we USE these minutes, hours or weeks is the differenc be tween success or failure in life, He or she who gets the most returns out of each hour of life lives the most. Money, healthy learning isn't our cap ital in life it is our minutes hours days, and we all waste this capital more recklessly than anything we possess. For when our alloted span is done we head the procession to the cemetery, but we don't know it, for bar life is done. Today we have "tomorrow" (Continued on page 6) CANDIDATES NOMINATED Following are the candidates nom inated in The Medina Sentinel's Au tomobile Contest up to NOON, Wed nesday, Sept 6th.

Alleged The singular propensity oftentimes evinced for constructing a huge eleva tion from the diminutive mole-hill was once more manifested in Medina last Friday, the mole-hill and mountain in this case being respectively a bon fire and two law suits, the hill-build ers being M. J. Bensinger and C. A. Waite, East Washington street neigh bors. Last Thursday night Bensinger started a bon-fire. When the fire was well under way, Waite appeared with a bucket of water and put it out, whereupon Bensinger picked up a stick and threw it at Waite, striking the latter in the back. From now on the hillock rises rapid ly. Waite has Bensinger arrested for assault and battery, the latter retal iating by having Waite arrested for trespass. Friday morning before Justice of Peace Ainsworth Bensinger registered a plea of guilty and was assessed a fine of $1 and costs, amounting in alt to a little more than $7. Later in the day Waite reluctantly entered a aim ilar plea and paid a fine ing to that of Bensinger's. MEMBERS ENTERTAINED AND THEN GET IOLTED Local Kiwanians listened to a brief address last Thursday by State Direct or of Education Vernon M. Reigel, also witnessed a demonstration by Miss Ann Sharp of New York city, in which she showed by the aid of a phonograph and other musical instru ments, and six little girls from the Medina schools, how the sentiment of music and its rythm may be readily taught to children. President Root of the club causr general consternation among the members when.following the announce ment that the season for straw hats was past, 'he appointed Albert Whit ney and Tom Ferriman a committee to gather all straw hats worn by mem bers that day, bring them into the room and there deliberately stamp them to shreds. The order was promptly complied with, but the hats proved to be an odd lot supplied for the occasion. For a few moment' great beads of sweat appeared many foreheads. on SQUIRREL SEASON OPENS SEPT. 15 The open season for hunting squirrels is near at hand and game wardens are sending out warnings that violatons of the law will be prosecuted vigorously. The season runs from Sept. ISth to Oct 20th, both days inclusive. Game wardens are warning hunt ers that only five squirrels may be killed by a hunter in any one day and that for the sale or purchase of squir rels is a fine of $25 to $200. - The duck season opens on Sept. 16th and runs to Dec. 31st, both days inclusive. Ducks may be hunted on any day of the week in this period except Sunday from one half hour before sunrise to sunset. Not more than 25 ducks may be shot in a day. GAS AND FUEL CO. CRB7PLES CITIES Lima and neighboring cities have had full measure of trouble the past jveek by reason of the Medina Gas & Fuel Co. peremptorily shutting off the supply of gas for those cities. The Medina company's action followed re fusal of Lima to pay 45 cents per 1000 feet for the product. Fifteen thous and or more consumers in Lima alone are affected. The State Utilities Commission promptly ordered the Medina company to resume its ser vice, but the latter has refused to do so and says it will contest the question in the courts first.

HINCKLEY FESTIVAL ONE BIG SUCCESS i Nearly 3,000 Attended Annual Event. The number of people that attend ed the Labor Day festival. and home coming at Hinckley Center Monday has been variously estimated at from 2,500 to 3,000, either of which figures is probably not far from the correct one.

The extensive program of entertain ment previously advertised by the Committee in charge was carried out to the letter ,and was so carefully ar ranged that there were no lapses, but something doing all the time. And while there was always something to suit somebody, there was one thing that exactly suited everybody, and that was the barbecue, which provided toothsome fillers for sandwiches for all comers. Ball games and other sports were pulled off at stated intervals during the day and were witnessed by large numbers. The Medina band was pres ent and the excellent work of this or ganization was the subject of frequent favorable comment. A martial band added zest to the occasion, while a de cided feature of the afternoon was the singing and playing of a colored quin tet from Cleveland, whose numbers were repeatedly encored. The speaker of the day was Senatci J. F. Burke of Elyria, whose subject was "The Ideal American." It was a most excellent address and well and forcefully delivered. Senator Burke was presented by Hon. A. R. Webber of Elyria, a native of Hinckley, and who is always ,"on deck" when the townsliip of his birth plans to do any thing.

PRECIPICE Charge Commissioners With Neglect in Not Providing Proper Safeguards at Bridge Two suits for damages aggregat ing $6,600 were hied against the Medina County Commissioners last Friday, respectively by Mrs. Anne Durling and her husband, Arthur G. Durling, of Wadsworth. The for mer sues for $6,000, the latter for $1,500. The suits are the result of an ac cident which befell the Durlings on the night of July 13 last, when a motorcycle in which they were riding ran over a precipice on the east and west public highway in Guilford town ship, at a point about three-fourths of a mile south, of the north line of the township throwing both occu pants into a creek, a distance of about eight feet, it is claimed. According to her petition Mrs. Dur ling's injuries consisted of a mis placement of the right clavicle when she struck on her right side and face; severe bruises to her right side from head to foot, and internal injuries, from all of which she "has suffered great pain and anguish." Durling's injuries are said to have consisted of a cut above the left eye and on the left side and right leg, and the destruction of his clothes and shoes. The petitions of both Durlings aver there was no bridge oyer the creek where the accident occurred; that the highway was not closed to traf fic, and that no lanterns or other signals had been placed there to ghf warning of danger. It is also stat ed that about two weeks previous to the accident the Commissioners had erected a bridge over the creek at thT point named, but that subsequently the frame and travelled part of the. bridge had been removed.
