Appearing in The Journal For Your Xmas Shopping VOLUME 88 Electric bills will be mailed only to the business places in Caldwell, according to Mrs. Violet Morgar eidge, clerk of the board. Charles Rogers is president, R. D. Buckey, vice president and William J. Kimnach, member. This is the first time in the history of the community that a gift of this proportion has been received by the people of Caldwell. It was all brought about Wednes day of this week, when the last and final installment of approximately $600 was paid on the new Deisel engine at the Caldwell Electric light plant. The note, held by a local bank, was due Wednesday, Dec. 18, and promptly paid off. The floating indebtedness against Caldwell is only $32.66 and the board plans to pay this off in Jan uary. It represents the final install ment on the City Dump, purchased several years ago by the city and located just north of here. Board members pointed out that in practically every instance, busi ness places in Caldwell are owned by residents who make Caldwell their home. By dis-counting all bills for every home consumer, business men will benefit from the gift in this manner. The gift reaches even greater proportions, when it is pointed out that December is a heavy consumer month. Discussion of the gift started last summer, when it became apparent that the indebtedness would be lifted. Plans were made and per fected but the announcement was not made made public until this nvcolc. In June, 1940, the debt against Caldwell stood at $45,808 28 and in less than six years has been re duced to $32.66. Chrismas comes but once a year according to the Board of Public affairs, who are ever mindful that in the final analysis, it was the con sumer, who was largely responsible for paying off the debt. They said it this week with a re sounding “Merry Christmas” to the tune of $2,500. Mrs. L. C. Miller Wages Successful Fight Against Attacking Gray Fox Armed with an axe which she had previously procured from the woodshed, Mrs. L. C. Miller, Cald well route six, successfully killed a gray fox at her home last Friday. The fox atttacked the two dogs on the Miller farm, having pre viously attempted to get into the house through the back door. Mrs. Miller awaited her opportunity and with one blow killed the fox breaking its neck. The score—one dead fox and one excited farm lady. Mrs. Miller also stated that it was necessary to shoot the dogs, rather than take the chance of their going mad. Carl Lorey, near Caldwell, was also attacked last week by the gray fox, which bit him on the leg. Lorey was wearing heavy boots and the teeth of the animal did not pene trate to the flesh. Mrs. Miller voiced the opinion of practically every farmer in Noble county when she said, “The Noble commissioners must place a bounty on these foxes and the sooner the better”. This is one item which the com missioners have promised to take up at their January meeting but to date they have been lukewarm to the idea. Over in Morgan county, the com missioners have paid out $3200 to date in bounties.

Examiner Tilton Completes Audit Of Noble County C. E. Tilton Retires After 24 Years Of Service To State C. E. Tilton, state examiner in the Department of Auditor of State, completed his audit of the offices in Noble county, Monday of this week ,and simultaneously made the announcement that he will retire at the end of the year under the Pub lic Employees retirement system. A native of Noble county, Mr. Til ton is well known here and spent his early life in this community. Prior to entering the State Service, he had served in a public capacity as deputy clerk .of courts in Noble county, Justice of Peace in Olive township, councilman in the village of Caldwell and taught in the public schools of Olive township. He entered state service in July, 1922, under the Hon. Joseph T. Tracy, then Auditor of State. During the period of his service with the state, his work has mainly been auditing and checking county records as to the receipts and legal expenditures of public funds in the hands of the different county officials and his work has taken him into counties in many different parts of the state. Mr. Tilton stated that it was his intention to retire on December 31, 1945, but at the request of the Hon. Joseph T. Ferguson, the present Auditor of State, remained in ser vice for the past year. On completion of his last audit be fore coming to Caldwell, Mr. Fer guson assigned him to his native county of Noble to complete his service qs a state examiner, before retiring. This gesture was appre ciated by Mr. Tilton, who had been for many years a resident of Cald well. Last July, Mr. and Mrs. Tilton returned to Caldwell to make it their home and are now residing on Mill street. They had previously lived in Columbus, during the per iod of his state employment. The following is a list of counties Mr. Tilton has visited in the line of duty, many from two to four times: Adams, Ashland, Athens, Brown, Clermont, Clinton, Craw ford, Darke, Defiance, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Gallia, Greene, Highland, Hocking, Holmes, Jackson, Knox, Lake, Lawrence, Lucas, Madison, Meigs, Mercer, Mi ami, Montgomery, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Pike, Preble, Ross, Trum bull, Tuscarawas, Union, Vinton, Wood and Wyandot. In completing his audit of Noble county, Mr. Tilton commended the county officials, and stated, that as in every county, only minor irreg ularities existed. Reservoir Water Pipe Line Goes Bad Approximately 160 feet of the pipe line which feeds the water from the Caldwell reservoir to the city filteration plant has gone bad, according to local officials, and it is now being repaired temporarily until new pipe can be obtained. Laid in four lengths of 40 feet, the pipe line was installed on March 1, 1935, with a 30 year guarantee. It was purchased from the American Rolling Mill company, now known as the Armco Drainage and Metal Products company. City officials are contacting a representative of this company and it is expected that he will come to Caldwell in the near future and put an OK on the replacement of the line which has gone bad. It has been necessary to make a number of minor repairs and plug up the holes but it is not believed that the system will be seriously impaired for the time being. The water is piped from the Cald well dam to the filteration plant just outside Caldwell and thence to the consumers here. Bunte’s and Brach’s Candy in At tractive Boxes. Get them while they last.

This amount represents an increase of 84.6 percent over the strike-ridden second quarter of the year but only a .5 percent increase over the same period in 1945. by REV. M. S. CASTO TEXT: John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” One day during the mission ary journey of Paul and Barna bas the heathen people would have done sacrifice to them sup posing them to be gods. Their quick conclusion was, “The gods are come down to us in the like ness of men”. While mistaken in this instance yet they spoke truer than they knew. What they longed for and could not see haa actuc’ly occurred in the far-distant city of Bethlehem. This is the meaning of our text, “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." St. John has a somewhat diff erent purpose in writing his gospel from the other evangel ists. He wrote later than the others. His great work seems to be to reveal God, in the Man Christ Jesus, to show him as the divine Son of God, the source of spiritual life, and to show that eternal life may be had through Him and only through Him. The term “Word" used in the text is from the Greek word Logos, and is a peculiar word. He calls Jesus the Word or Lo gos because He declares the Father (John 1:18). He is the Word of the Father. He declares the Father in a language all can understand. “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” Jesus Christ is God’s message and also the Messenger to our needy world. Our text taken in connection Brubach Ambulance Figures In Wreck Clarence Brubach, Summerfield, escaped without injury, early Mon day morning, when his ambulance was wrecked at the foot of Sharon road, Zanesville.

The Wilson car skidded on the ice and it was impossible for Bru bach to avoid the accident. Brubach was enroute to Colum bus to return a patient home. The mission was completed by the Mur phy ambulance, Caldwell. UNDERGOES OPERATION Mrs. Reese lams, near Sharon, underwent a major operation, Sun day at Marietta Memorial hospital.

THE JOURNAL “COVERS NOBLE COUNTY LIKE THE SUNSHINE” CALDWELL OHIO THURSDAY DECEMBER 19 1946 ODAY, as friend meets friend, there’s an atmosphere sur rounding everyone that is one of the most delightful experiences of the year. It is the time when we greet our friends with a warm smile, a hearty handclasp and say, “Merry Christmas!’’ Christmas gets us! It gets you! It is an occasion that we look forward to with glorious anticipation, although too often forgotten in the hurry to get back to the furious routine of living. This year, we pledge ourselves to strive to maintain the spirit of Christmas throughout every day of the New Year, setting as our goal the desire to be of more efficient service to our fellowman. To each of you we extend our very best wishes for the Holiday Season! THE JOURNAL PATRICIA HEDDLESON LEONARD L. LONG JAY L. McCOOL JOHN D. WHEELER JOSEPH W. KUSNERAK CLARENCE J. ESTADT (Christmas w with its context here surely can refer to none other than our Lord, and may be taken as an incontestible proof so far as Holy Scripture is concerned, of the proper divinity of Jesus. John wants us to know that Jesus is our God and is worthy of worship, being equal in attri butes and authority with the Father and the Holy Ghost, in the mystery of the Trinity. “Very God of very God”. So declares the ancient creed. The theme of our text we call— “THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE” I. The Sense and Manner in which it occurred: Christ not only assumed a single human personality, but human nature in all that means except sin humanity, into an indisoluble union with his pre existent divine personality, so that he in unique among men. He is a representative Man. He is the second Adam from above representing the whole race in redemption. He assumes the penalty demanded by divine Holiness and pays for us all. And the payment is satisfactory, is in full, and is accepted by the Father. The Father has seen the travail of His soul and is sat isfied The secret is not in vindictiveness on God’s part, but rather in the sustaining of divine government, without which satisfaction all would be chaos. When we speak of the man ner of this miracle we touch upon an assailed doctrine, es pecially in our modern day, the virgin birth of our Lord. May not God work as he will since PETTY THIEVING Several cases of petty thefts have been reported in Caldwell by busi ness places and in private homes. Judge Otto Poling will hold a hear ing Saturday for the juveniles im plicated in the case. UNDERGOES OPERATION Howard Morrison, of Renrock, underwent a major operation at the Cleveland Clinis hospital two weeks ago and is now much improved. He expects to be removed to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Robert Boyd, 649 Schaum Ave., Zanesville, this weekend. VISITING IN FLORIDA Mr. and Mrs. William Weekley, Caldwell, left Thursday for Uma tilla, Florida, where they will spend the winter months.

Merry-maker hats and noise makers will be furnished. NOTICE TO DOG OWNERS Dog Ta^s are now on sale at the County Auditor’s Office and will continue to be sold until January 20, 1947, inclusive, without penalty.

The virgin birth is necessary in redemption. Any natural conception would pro duce but a natural man, Him self in need of redemption. He could not be EMANUEL, “God with us”. Heaven and earth must be equally represented in the Mediator. II. The purpose for which this stupendous change in Diety was brought about: It was that he might destroy the works of the devil. Here is a paradox. The Lord of all worlds condescends to become a babe, and to the suffering of the cruel Roman cross, and in doing so conquers, becomes King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Tyrants have another way. This is God’s way. Sin is the most terrible of the devil’s works. There are many by-products. Christ atones for sin in full. He bears our sins away when we meet the condi tions. But worse than acts of sin is the terrible nature of sin in the heart. The atonement also meets this problem. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin.” And there is a constructive work in the atonement, “I am come that they might have life” said Jesus. He sets up the mind of Christ on the ashes of the carnal mind. He is the great Physician. He is the Good Shep herd, and the Prince of Peace. Let us believe this Christmas miracle not only historically, but may it be performed in us as we celebrate the Saviour’s birth.____________________ ______ Harry Kohut Receives Terminal Leave Bonds Harry Kohut of Ava route 1 is believed to be the first veteran in Noble county to receive his terminal leave bonds. The bonds arrived last week. The bonds can be used at their full value, if applied as payment for the GI insurance. But if the $25 bond, for instance, is cashed now it will only bring $18.75.
