Salo oxdorod, (Continued on Eighth Page.) THIRTY-EIGHT MILLION People Live Under Laws Prohibit ing Sale of Liquor, The past year has marked a new era In the abolition ot the saloon in the United States. Thirty a day for the year 1908 wero suppressed by lo cal option or prohibition. Fivo en tire states went "dry," making eight in all now under state-wldo prohibi tion. A decade ago only 6,000,000 people lived In no-llcense territory. Today 38,000,000 live where there is no leg alized saloon. Two-thirds of the area of the United States Is now "dry." A solid block of 320 miles north and south and 720 miles east and west, all "dry," tells the story of the tidal wave that has1 swept over the south land. One can almost travel from the Ohio to the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Mississippi to the Atlantic with out seeing a legalized saloon. Only five of the 9G counties In Tennessee are "wet," and 97 per cent of the ter ritory of Kentucky Is "dry." Nor has the sentiment in the north lagged. The temperance question has become the leading one in many states. The tidal wave shows no in dication of receding'. Hives, eczema, itch or salt rheum sets you crazy.

IMPORTANT TO TEACHERS".

Several .of the township boards have decided to dismiss their schools in order to give the teachers an opportunity to attend. Tiffin Advertiser. STRUCK AN OIL WELL. Ira Shook, the Stony Ridge mer chant, has an oil well on his hands which came as rather an unwelcome surprise. Wednesday he finished drilling a 90-foot water well on his Stony RIdga property, but when ho came to apply the pump a consider able quantity of crude oil was brought up with tho water. There Is now talk of going after oil in the immediate vicinity. Democrat. PRESBYTERIAN LECTURES.

Fire at an early hour Friday morn ing last destrojeJ the old framo build ing that marked the boundary line between Wood and Lucas counties. Half of the buildiug stood in Wood county and the other half in Lucas county. Tho building was unoccupied and was estimated to be 78 years old. The sheriff of Wood Co. many years ago went into this building to arrest a nun, but tho fugitive saw the sheriff first and quickly stepped into that part of the building in Lucas county and of coumo the sheriff was power less to urrest him with a Wood coun ty warrant. The fire is thought to have been the work of tramps. Fugitive From Justice Returns After Thirteen Year's Absence. A few days since a stranger walked Into the office of Sheriff Roach and made the following startling an nouncement, "I have come to give myself up; I am wanted at Ooalton, Jackson county, Ohio. I have been a fugitive from justice for thirteen years, and have traveled all over the country trying to shake off the curse of the crime, and I am tired of it. I have been so conscieuce-stricken that I have suspected nearly every person I have met of knowing my Identity and the crime committed. I have come all the way from California to Ohio to have the officials take me, and this being the first sheriff's office I could get to, I present myself to be sent back to Jackson county for trial. I cannot stand It any longer." Sheriff Roach not being accustomed to having men beg the favor ot an ar rest, was of course greatly astonished at the request and proceeded to ques tion the man, who announced himself as A. D. James; that in an encounter with his father-in-law he had almost killed him, and when released on bond, hnd jumped his bond and dis appeared. Communication was had at once with the Jackson county officials and it was learned that the indictment had been nollied long since, that James' wife had remained faithful to him during his long absence, and with hig child, was anxiously await ing his return. James took the first car for his former home. All this reads like a romance, and let us hope that they live happily ever after. Free Press. Best Treatment for Colds. "Most ordinary colds yield to the simplest treatment," says the Chi cago Tribune, "modoratlve laxatives, hot foot baths, n free perspiration and an avoidance of exposure to cold and wet after treatment." While this treatment Is simple, it requires con siderable trouble, and tho one adopt ing it must remain In doors for a day or two, or a fresh cold is almost sure to be contracted, and in many instances pneumonia follows. Is It not better to pin your faith to an old reliable preparation like Cham berlain's Cough Remedy, that Is fa mous for its cures of colds and can always be depended upon? For salo by C. P. Champney. OUR FAMILY SHOES It is a source of satisfaction to every member of the family to know that father, mother, sister and brother are wearing the Same kind of shoes. The "Our Family" is the strongest Una of box calf shoes that has ever been made by any manufacturer on earth. It is a "Star Brand" Hne-you know that "STAR BRAJSD SHOES ARE BETTER" and that the manufacturers, Ito' erto, Johnson & Band Shoe Co , guarantee every shoe with their star on tho heel to be honeBt through and through. Every pair of shoes that leayes their factories must be right. "Our Family" prices range from $1.25, $L50,' $1.75 and $2.00 A. C. F U L L E R WILL EXTEND LINES L. E. B. G. & N.

G. & N. electric line to Weston instead of to Tontogany as proposed. iney realize the land alone other electric roads has been much increas ed in value and that as tho country grows, this increase in value will bo milch Cronfcnr nlnni fllAan nTani,aa nF trayel. Thereforo tliey want to be in on the ground floor. One owner of land there is said to have offered to take a goodly amount in oonds of the company and to give the right of way besides. Manager McKnight expects to nush the work to completion this summer and to have the connection with tho Ohio Electric completed by fair time. Other Wood county towns have seen the great mistake made by Per rysburg in driving the T. U. & I. electric away from town and it is safe to predict, that no other town will be so foolish. BLACK HAND LETTER. A Fiomont attorney, whose name tbe police decliuo to give, received a "Black Hand" letter recently, written in French and demanding 31,000. The writer threatened to blow the law yer's head off in case he didn't com ply with tho demand. The letter has been turned oyer to the Fremont au thorities for action and !the threaten ed barrister is under the surveillance of the police for his own protection.
