..With the coming of the new year,
there comes a new name written in
the business world of Perrysburg.
Mr. A. C. Fuller, who has been ver
successful in business in Perrysburg,
feeling a desire and need of more op
portunity for rest and desiring to be
relieved of some of the burdens of
business for many years, has decided
to take into the firm his two eldest
sons, Harry and Frank. They have
become identified with the business a
clerks and proving themselves most
capable, they are now recognized as
members of the firm which will here
after be known as, A. C. Fuller &

the ability of the young men, and we
predict for the new firm a brilliant
and prosperous future.

Social Reunion.
The installation "of officers of Ft
Meigs lodge I. O. O. F., held at their
lodge room last Friday night was one
of the most pleasing fraternal social
events of the season.
The ceremonies of installation were

After the installation a social ses

tha programme.
Following this program the guests
were invited to partake of a most
bountiful and excellent banquet which
indicated very plainly that the Odd
Fellows know how to entertain in a
manner that could be appreciated by
During the latter part of the even
ing there was considerable orchestra
music, after which Alvin Phillips
furnished a little of the kind of music
that makes the old boys feel skittish
and if there was somo dancing no one
could be blamed for doing so, cause
Phillips' fiddle told them to.
If all our fraternal orders would
give such open house meetings there
would be much more of the friendly,
real fraternal spirit engendered
among our people.
A letter from H. P. Lucas of Berke
ley, California, says: "Just now we
are having a taste of Ohio winter
weather snow and ice. Some people
are enjoying this weather, but the
most of us would rather have the sun
shine." Telegraph news states that Cali
fornia was badly frosted last week,
and as usual Californians are apolo
gizing for the bad behaviour of the
weather and using their stereotyped
phrase "It's very unusual." This ex
pression is worked threadbare in the
coast cities, every time a westener
speaks disparagingly of the climatic
conditions of California.

There was a very good attendance
considering that it was one of the
worst storms of the season.
The regular program Was followed
and the lectures and musical features
of entertainment were of a high order
of merit.
The evening program was very
entertaining and was enjoyed by a
good audience considering the terrific
storm that prevailed at the time.
When the sunshine of Tuesday
morning brightened the world the
farmers came out in goodly numbers
and the general attendance was bet
ter than the day previous.
The session was one in which most
excellent instruction was obtained
through the lectures and discussions
and the fact that the farmers and
their families attended gave evidence
that the Z?firrysburg farmers are
alive to the great benefit to be de
rived from knowledge along the line
of .progressive development in farm
ing. The officers elected were as fol

The Sunday School party given at
the church last Friday evening had a
record breaking attendance and was a
most enjoyable affair. One of the
"surprises" advertised, was the recit
ing of an original poem by Mr. F. E.
Woodin in which that versatile gentle
man outdid himself and greatly de
lighted young and old. Another "sur
prise" was the presenting of a sub
stantial purse to Rev, George Lowr
by the members of the Sunday School
and church. The whole programmo
was well rendered and full of intoresi
from beginning to end. The two beau
tiful vocal selections of Miss Drach
deserve special mention.
