farmers picnic.
Attendance Large and Pro
gram very Interesting-.
About 3000 people attended the
Farmers Field day nt Vollmer's pari;
Inst week Wednesday.
The programme as arranged by tho
committee was well planned for an
interesting day's amusement.
Tho rain in the afternoon brought
tho events to an early closing and
caused much disappointment.
The speeches by
and Hon. B. C. Harding wero of
much interest and contained many
features which were of benefit to tho
assembled people.
Numerous athletic events wero con
ducted which afforded much sport.
The next meeting will probably bo
held at a place moro easy of access.
A large number of people signed
the membership list and the next an
nual event will probably be bigger
and better than any previous effort.
A grievous wail oftlmes comes as a
result of unbearable pain from over
taxed organs. Dizziness, Backache, Liv
er complaint and Constipation. But
thanks to Dr. King's New Life Pills
they put an end to all. They are gen
tle but thorough. Try them. Only 25c.

The above verses express full 'veil
the feeling that comes to every per
son whose duties at home, in olfice or
shop, require such attention that the
Summer months find them tired and
longing for rest.
"Things outside are calling me;"
it is nature's plaintive song which is
nlmost irresistible; it is the song of
tho Michigan woods; it is the melody
that comes from the shores of Michi
gan's beautiful lakes; it is the voice
of the gamey bass and" wiley trout
that invite ypu out to inhale the fra
grance of wooded hills; to take a dip
in the crystal lake ana to match your
skill with the beauties that inhabit
the waters.
It was the song ringing in the ears
of tho members of tho Buckeye Press
Association that induced them to turn
down several other opportunities for
a Summer outing and accept an iuyi-
tation from Col. J. J. Kirby, General
Pussenger Agent of the Ann Arbor
railroad to go to Frankfort, Mich.,
for a few weeks' outing.
Our party left Toledo on an Ann
Arbor special train and made an ex
cellent run to the beautiful Crystal
lake country, arriving at Frankfort
and taking dinner at the Royal Fron
tenac Hotel where the party, consist
ing of 100 people made headquarters
during their stay in Frankfort.
Tho Royal Frontenac which has
been previously described in these
columns, maintains tho excellent
standard established at the opening
last year it is an ideal resort hotel.
Frankfort is improving in many re
spects, and there is a feeling of cor
diality and hospitality among the
people that makes the visitor feel
himself very much at home, while en
joying all pleasures of n summer re
sort. Our party enjoyed themselves in
running about over tho hills, down
by tho lake Michigan and in trips to
Crystal and Piatt lakes.
It was the Journal's pleasuro to bo

A number of Perrysburg people
have gono to Frankfort this week to

The doings of tho editors while at
Frankfort is of no particular interest
to the Journal readers, henco we
pass by that feature of the trip by
merely saying that this is the third
season they have spent in that coun
try and there is no abatement in the'

each attached together, when the
lower one became unfastened and fell
down the hole, exploding some dis

stated that his daughter Libbio had

Subsequent investigations prooved
that McEwen and the girl, who is

Detroit on the Toledo train via the
Mich'gan Central railroad and as
soon as they we'-o accosted by thf
patrolman McEwen fainted away and
begged not to be arrested. The girl,
however exhibited no emotion and
voluntarily accompanied tho officer to
the police station. The young lady
admitted that she had run away with
McEwen from Walbridge, O., where
she resides, and that it was their in

and get married. McEwen claims
that both had the consent of the girl's
mother to marry. The authorities at
