Winter here with all the trappings
winds blowing a gale and temp
eratures near zero plumbers
busy thawing out frozen pipes and
the usual crop of stranded motorists
with dead batteries crowding parages
the younger set taking the
situation in their stride and skating
on the Buckeye custom butch
ering on farms in full swing—wish
someone would bring us some good
country sausage and twenty
years ago ice harvest would have
been a major project with Charlie
Hankish and Bigler’s filling their
storage houses for next summer—
nowadays all that’s necessary is to
flip a switch and there’s ice when
ever it’s wanted times change—
just like the institute—and by the
way Bluffton put out the welcome
mat for rural folk attending the in
stitute Wednesday and ,Thursday
remember when it used to be
the farmers institute—now it’s the
community institute for everybody—
and you’re invited to attend the
get better acquainted with your
neighbors and farming has
changed, too—tractors and electric
ity do the work—some farms don’t
even have a single horse and
congratulations to Councilman Cleon
Triplett who birthdayed Monday....
Filling stations here are serving
as a convenient location for house
trailers this winter. Besides those
mentioned in this column' last week,
two employees at the electric gen
erating plant of the Central Ohio
Light & Power company have re-1
cently moved their families here and
are living this winter in house trail
ers at the North Main street filling
station operated by Paul Henry.
LADY’S ARM WAS
BENT UP DOUBLE
LIKE A JACK-KNIFE
One lady recently stated that her
arm used to become doubled up like
a jack-knife. She couldn’t move her
arm up or down because her muscles
were stiff with rheumatic pains and
the joints of her elbow and shoulder
were sw’ollen. She said she was
ashamed to leave her house because
people would stare at her. Finally
she got RHU-AID and says she now
can raise her arm above her head
and the swelling left her elbow and
shoulder. The awful pain and stiff
ness is gone. She is enjoying life
once more and feels like “some other
woman” since taking this New Com
pound.
RHU-AID contains Three Great
Medicinal Ingredients which go right
to the very souret of rheumatic
aches and pains. Miserable people
soon feel different alnover. So don’t
go on suffering! Get RHU-AID.
