Here’s March—fittingly named for
the old Roman war god—fickle, un
predictable, blowing hot and cold,
roaring in a day ahead of schedule
Monday in the midst of swirling
snow and sunshine in which the
March lamb was pretty badly mauled
by the March lion and Tuesday
continued cold with the thermom
eter around 20 degrees which gave
Blufftonites cold chills after spring
like weather all winter how
ever, the oldtimers say that a cold
spell early in March means an early
spring—that what Ralph Basinger
at the florist shop has been predict
ing all along—might be, for the
pussy willows are out and Mrs Alf
Sanner and Mrs. Molly Whitney
gathered dandelion greens last Wed
nesday and Ohio had a birthday
Tuesday—the 146th since it was ad
mitted to statehood March 1, 1803—
which should be particularly inter
esting to Bluffton News readers who
have been following with interest
the feature “True Tales About Ohio”
Spearing in these columns and
Bluffton youngsters enjoying a field
day when some 750 of them filled
the Carma for the free show Sat
urday afternoon as one of the fea
tures of Dollar Day, which by the
way has considerably enhanced
Bluffton’s prestige as a trading cen
ter—bargains were good and plenti
ful and customers well pleased,
which speaks well for the good faith
and enterprise of local retailers
and with basketball team here hav
ing wound up their seasons, local
fans here have been following Beav

their respective tournaments and be
wailing the turn of fate which de
prived Bluffton athletics of some
mighty good basketball material
when the Orange township territory
went to Mt. Cory back in the 30’s
and maple syrup season on, al
though little is being sold commer
cially—when since it takes a barrel
of maple sap to boil down to make
a single gallon of maple syrup, you
realize that this is a job that takes
patience and we realized Tues
day that our budget will take a
one-two punch and be floored for the
count this month with Easter shop

Bluffton has one lodge—the Mod

and meets only once a year—but the
attendance at the annual meeting is
always good, because each member
enjoys a free dinner. There’s a
meeting following the dinner at
which business of the order is trans
acted and then they adjourn for an
other twelve months. The meeting
this year will be at the Walnut
Grill on Friday night, March 25.

Recipe for a long life: work hard
and belong to a church. That’s
what Mrs. Abigail Boutwell says is
the secret of the whole thing—and
she ought to know’, for she reached
her 91st birthday last Sunday. Her
sister, Mrs. Florence Kepnes lives in
Bluffton on North Jackson street.
Mrs. Boutwell, a native of Orange
township, in recent years has made
her home with her son John in
Lima. However the greater part of
her life was spent in Orange town
ship where she was for 65 years a
member of Bethel Church of Christ
southeast of Bluffton on the Lincoln
highway. Since moving to Lima 11
years ago she attends the South Side
Church of Christ where she hears
every Sunday, Rev E. J. Penhor
wood, pastor of the Bluffton Church
of Christ some thirty years ago.
Mrs. Boutwell, mother of a daugh
ter and four sons, reads the Bible
daily, however, since her vision is
failing, her daughter-in-law fre
quently reads to her.
Besides John, who whom she
makes her home, her other children
are Fred and Oscar of Ada and
Allen of Shelby, and a daughter
Mrs. Rachel Shappel of Lima.
Mrs. Boutwell and Mrs. Kepner
are the only survivors of a family
of 10 children. She has 18 grand
children and 30 great grandchildren.
