EDUCATED TO OTHER PURSUITS Through their Patents not Treating them as Equals They blew Into town Monday after noonfour wagon loads of junk and greasy looking people and the female mombora of the band immediately proceeded to go out on the skirmish line for coin on tho fortune telling game. As usual there were a few ready to bite, but the husky, dusky dames "touched" one man for $4 which he afterwards decided was too high in price tor the goods delivered, and the "yelp" he made touched the heart of Marshal Taj lor who called in ex Marshal Billy Mills as his chief advis or and lleutena'ut. After mature de liberation, Mills decided that $4 was too much money to go out of town in one lump unless it went to a Chica go mail order house, and advised the Marshal to immediatelv arrest the petticoats, and together the two val ient guardians of the peace entered Trudeau's barber shop where they were Immediately "tonsoriHlized," had their neck ties readjusted and their oflicial badges polished and then proceeded to make the capture. En route to the scene of conquest Marshal Taylor asked. Mills if it was proper to carry his police club. Mills was shocked and replied "My noble chief, I blush to think that one holding your exalted position Bhould so far forget tho courtesy due the fair sex." ' "That's all right, Billy," replied the Marshal, "but these women 'aint fair they look like greasers." "What matter," said Billy, 'wheth er white or ebon hue, you should act with circumspection, determination, deliberation and proper consideration of the act about to be performed. Your duty as an official requires that you preserve the peace -with dignity and decorum, ad libitum, ad valorum." Touching hia hat with dignity, Mar shal Taylor replied : "I bow to your superior wisdom and age ; let us now advance." Arriving in the presence of the dusky fortune tellers the Marshal in troduced himself and "leftenant" and made the arrest, in the most polite manner by inviting "the ladies" to ac company them for a short promenade. With visions of ice cream the girls in nocently accepted and it was real re freshing to see those two brave but bashful men walking down Main street with dusky Amazons onjeach arm while somebody's phonograph was heard playing '-The Amazon March." The procession eDded in Philip Wot- jzel's justice ofllce, where the women were given the opportunity to return the $4 00 with $3.70 costs or go to jail. This was a rude awakening from the ice cream soda dream, but they dug up the coir and left town. The Boxwell-Fatterson graduates of 1912, 141 in number, assembled in tho M. R. church at Bowlipg Qreen, the afternoon of June 15 to receive their diplomas. It was a splendid gathering of tho sons and daughters of Wood county farmers. It goes without saying that the families rep resented in this large class of 1912 have reasons to be proud. The high schools to which the most of them will go for their further education will be enriched by sturdy ana wor thy students. Supt. Williams, of Sandusky, presi dent elect of the Normal College to bo built by the state in Bowling Green was the speaker for the class. The orator showed to the young graduates how well it pays to bo educated not alone in the common schools, but in the high schools and universities. It was an address worthy tho man and worthy tho class. A quartet of voung girls furnished tho music for the occasion and did it most acceptably. The diplomas were given by the county examiners Messrs. McLaughlin and Beeman and Mrs. L. L. Yonkers. "Just tho other day I mot a stal wart young fellow whoso every ap pearance would indicate ho was a 'son of tho soil,' " says a writer in a arm ana Jb iresido. "Six years ago he left the old home. At that time he had very littlo education, but by steady, industrious laboa he has 'won out,' and today is a promising young lawyer. He told me that the first year he left the farm he obtained employment in a machine shop at what seemed to his mind a largo sum of money, $12 a week. He worked hard for nearly thrco month?, when one day he received a telegram from his father, asking him to return at once. "Having left a delicate little mother, he rushed home with all haste, fear ing to find some great trouble, at the end of his journey.

Stinebaugh is much olated over tho fine showing made by the personal property assessors of Wood county who have made their roports on the valuations of property in their precincts. He is justifiod in this, ior tho in crease amounts to $1,838,700. Last year tho same class of property amounted to $7,003,950 for taxable purposes, while this year it is 58,9-12,-710. This means an increase of very nearly sixteen per cent over the re turn of last year. The increase came about because Mr. Stinebaugh had a heart to heart talk with tho assessors and then an other one explaining just tho situa tion and letting them know how es sential it is for local government that valuations be' increased in order that sufficient rovonucs may be raised un der the Smith one per cent tax law. So well did the assessors do their work that it has not been found necessary to send a single assessor back to his district to look over the property again. Tho tax returns are not all in yet, however, and much more personal property will be added to tho returns than the above, oil property and pub lic service companies being yet un-assessed. MORE HIGH SCHOOL FACILITIES. Large Increase in Numbers First Grado Pupils. of Mrs, Eugenia Chapman's report to the superintendent shows that there is loft in her department first year thirty pupils. This number is almost enough for any first grade teacher, but the Bchool enumeration shows that there is an increase oft'pupils of school ago of more than fifty. The most of these are pupils who will enter first grade next September. What will be done with them is a question tho school authorities will have to deter mine. It is certain that provisions must be made for a first year class that will number in all probability be- Ohio's 1912 wheat production will be the lowest in a number of years. Present prospoct indicates that the average production per acre will bo less than 7 bushels. Under normal conditions general stato avoroge pro duction per acre should bo 15 bush els. Not only will tho production per acre be low, but tho report shows that 41 per cent of the original area seeded last fall has been abandoned. This leaves but 1,079,894 acres re maining, and as many fields are in such poor condition that they will not pay for harvesting, tho area will show a further decline from the acre age abovo quoted. Many of these fields were left standing on account of the high priced grass seed sown with tho wheat, and will be cut for hay. The total harvest will not far exceed seven million bushels.

Real Estate Friday evening June 11 brought not alone the Boxwell-Fatterson Commencement, but also the long wished for rain. The latter was very acceptable to Perrysburer township farmers and kept many of them away from the Commencement at Lime City but enough were interested so that the church was filled with friends of the graduates and patrons of the schools. Supt. D. A. Baylor started tho program promptly on time with an overture by the Orchestra secured for the occasion. Mr. Frank Harvey school director in district No. 5 gave the invocation. Dwight DeVerna, declamed "Sue cess in Life" a production from the pen of James A. Garfield. This ex ercise was given with an expressive manner which carried to the audience the truths the great Garfield had ox pressed. Florence Birkin told the audience "Why men become Tramps." This original oration was a splendid effort for an eighth grade student. "Night on Shiloh" was a recitation given by Myrtle Frantz of the Lime City dis trict. The recitation was perfectly learned and its delivery pleased the hearers. Gladys Simmons next fav ored the audience with a violin solo of merit. Two, essays "Value of Apple Orchards" and "Alfalfa for Wood County Farms" were read by Elmer Blubaugh and Norman Curry respectively. These exercises were appropriate for the time and for stu dents of Agriculture. Viola Kistler a pupil of No. 11 next told of tho "Importance of Littlo Things" a prao tide solection by Smiles a well known author. The orchestra again pleased the listeners by playing a march.

Gladys Sim mons read a carefully prepared paper about birds and their great use to farmers. Much valuable information was brought to the audience by this exercise. Rockin' in do Win' was a pleasing lullaby by Margaret Hitchcock of the Lime City District. Robert Browning's poetry was dis cussed in an essay by Dorothy Smith which showed great appreciation of what the poet had written. "What We Owo to the American Indians" was tho subject Raymond Spilker had taken for his oration. This exer cise uuowea 10 wnat a good purpose the young gentleman had studied his D. S. history. Margaret Hitchcock showed to the listeners her interest in "How the Old Hoss Won the Bet" and she certainly succeeded in inter esting all of them. Tho last exercise by a graduate was given by Audrey Wagoner, an oration "Nature Super ior to Art." This showed a great ap preciation of the world on which we all live but often do not see. Fred Ault a product of our town ship schools was introduced by Supt. Haylor and made tho address to the class of 1912. The address was fit ting, was full of good sense, was illus trated by pointed stoiies and remin iscences and delighted everyone who heard it. After a few closing words by Supt. D. A.

The ohurch building was taxed to its utmost capacity and a large part of the crowd could not be accomodated. Every seat was occu pied and standing room was all taken and many were compelled to remain outside. It is very clear that tho in terest in education is making vast progress in this part of the country as was manifest by the large attendance and the excellent order and attention which was maintained throughout the j evening. The platform was beautifully decorated with the class colors, if reen and gold. Many flowers and plants were contributed by friends for the occasion. The class address waB delivered by John Bayne Ascham Ph. D. of Toledo, who gavo a very in teresting talk on "The Dreamer." The music was furnished by the local music club. The piano trios by the Misses Mildred, Mablo and Ruth Christen, and tho piano duet by the Misses Florence and Svella Kroetz were very much appreciated by tho audience. The vocal selections ren dered by Miss Bessie Robinson and Miss Cluriuda Herman wero also very much appreciated. The readings giv en by Mis3 Lora Filse were also very much enjoyed by tho audience.
