Telephone Company Loses Heavily
by Recent Storm.
When the great sleet storm of the
first part of this month dropped down
on the thousands of wires, poles and
other equipment, it put out of business
several village telephone companies.
It also tied up business sb that it has
taken much time to get lines working
once more.
Telephone subscribers of the North
ern Ohio Telephone Company may
have had occasion to feel displeased
because the service has been tempor
arily interrupted, but when they con
sider that supplies were slow in com
ing, competent help impossible to se
cure and that the loss by damages
will be over ten thousand dollars, it
will be seen that this is a time to exer
cise as much patience as possible and
give the 'company a chance to get
back in working shape, which they
are doing as fast as "possible.

About four months since the postal
department decided to cut off several
mails running out of Perrysburg by
the electric railway route, and by so
doing the Journal mail could not get
out of Perrysburg except by using the
local mail leaving town, north-bound,
at 9:14 a. m., because the usual "catch
pouch" mail which was picked up by
the fast trains on the C. H. & D. R. R.
was not large enough to carry the
Journal mail.
This arrangement worked a hard
ship on the Journal and we took the
case to the Postal department, and
asked for relief.
A special nspector for the depart
ment was sent to Perrysburg to in
spect our mail and ascertain the facts
pertaining thereto, and upon our state
ment the department promised to fur
nish the Journal with the necessary
accommodation, even though it should
require the stopping of a fast train
to take care of the Journal mail.
Patience on the part of the Journal
and perseverance of the Postal depart
ment has finally succeeded and we
have this week received the joyful tid
ings that train No. 6, north-bound out
of Perrysburg at 1:41 p. m., will make
Perrysburg a regular stop in the fu
ture, and thus the Journal will have
its mail carried out of town at a time
that is suitable for our business.
This action on the part of the Post-
office department indicates that while
there is a laudable desire to reduce ex
penses of the department, it is not the
intention to deprive any publisher of
his rights, and the Journal is greatly
pleased to be thus accommodated and
recognized as worthy of consideration.
Maple Grove, which is one of the
most picturesque locations along the
Maumee river, has been purchased by
Mr. Harry lung, of the law firm of
King, Tracy, Chapman & Welles of To
The property consists of 10 acres of
woodland, midway between Perrys
burg and Eagle Point on the Perrys
burg side of the river,
At that point the river is skirted by
a high bluff, from which is obtained
an unobstructed view of Walbridge
park, the Country club, the beautiful
groups of islands, and the entire Mau
mee valley as far south as Turkeyfoot
Rock. While hard maples predomi
nate and give the spot its name, the
forest setting actually includes 50 va
rieties of native Ohio trees.
The grove, like all the rest of the
Maumee valley, is historic. In the
early days, before the memorable
Harrison campaigns of 1812 and 1813,
it was a favorite camping ground of
the Indians, who then controlled this
section of the Northwest Territory.
"A fine example of shade tree butch
ery came to my notice the other day in
a central Ohio town," says an in
structor from the College of Agricul
ture, Ohio State University. "Last
spring, in an attempt to head back
some fine soft maple trees, the limbs
had all been cut off, leaving only a few
stubs. Not enough foliage was loft to
manufacture food for the trees and the
hot summer sun beat down in full
force upon the unprotected trunks and
branches, with the result that a num
ber of trees have died. The dead bark
is falling away from the tree trunks,
which stand as monuments to some
one's ignorance of tree pruning." All
over the village of Perrysburg may be
seen samples of jtHe same type of
butchery until the once beautiful shade
trees of the town are rapidly becom
ing, extinct.
Persons troubled with partial pa
ralysls aro often very much bene
fitted by massaging tho affected
parts thoroughly when applying

ment also relieves rheumatic pains,

Fort Meigs was visited Saturday by

mission and several members of the

provements in the buildings and
grounds. ,
The Historical Association has in its
possession a number of relics of espe-
cal significance to northwestern Ohio
history, for which it has no suitable
place of display. Many other me
mentos, not .only of pioneer days, but
of the several wars from the earliest
Indian conflicts in the territory,
would be placed in charge of the as
sociation if. safety from fire were as
sured. The association plans an artistic
building which would cost probably
$8,000. It is estimated that an ad
ditional $2,000 would be needed to
furnish it. An automobile shed, to
cost $1,500, is planned. A monument
to Peter Navarre, .one to the officers
who fell at Fort Meigs, and another
to the soldiers of the garrison who
were buried there, each of the three
to cost $500, are included in the plan.

We have been having school six
days a week since college opened after
Christmas vacation, so you see I have
been busy. Exams began last Friday
and continue through this week. I
only have one exam this week and as
there are no classes, I am availing
myself of the opportunity and doing
little odds and ends. ((Of course you
understand that this letter is not an
odd or end.)
The weather these few weeks has
been delightful, just like spring days.
Yesterday was especially warm. So
warm, in fact, that white shoes and
stockings were in evidence everywhere.
Even one or two fellows were out in
their summer straw hats (probabjy
1912 ones however.) But as I am writ
ing this, I am trying hard not to
shiver as the room is cold and the
outside even colder.
I am glad to hear that Perrysburg
is waking up and doing something. I
was pleased when I read in the Journal
of the organization of "The Perrys
burg Civic Association" and I hope
that it may prosper and do the old
"burg" a great deal of good within
the near future.
The Hiram people had a great scare
Saturday evening when they heard a
terrible explosion and learned that tho
Standard Oil wagon was on fire in the
village. The driver had been drawing
oil and was using a lantern in order
to see, when the small oil tank "le
loose," and took fire. The three horses
were saved however. It was feared
for a time that the large gasoline tank
would burst, but the heat seemed to
form a gas with the oil and it safely
blew off through the filling holes in
the top of the tank. The fire depart
ment was called out to protect nearby
residents that were in the danger zone.
This spectacular sight afforded the
students a good deal of amusement for
they took it as a celebration of tho
basket ball victory, before it wa3
played. Later in the evening it was
learned that Hiram HAD won from '
Western Reserve at Cleveland by the
score of 38 to 31. This makes three
games won out of three played. Hiram
first won from German-Wallace 40-19
and then we "skinned" Ohio Northern
University 44 to 37. On February G
we play Bethany here and expect to
win about C or 7 to 1.
Much interest is being taken just at
present, in the coming basket ball
The different boarding clubs have
organized and put a team in the field
and will play for a loving cup which
the Athletic Board has offered. This
cup will be kept by tho winning club
until another club takes it a following
year. The first of this series of games
will be played this Saturday evening
'in tho Y. M. C. A. gymnasium.
Another looked forward tp event is
the annual debate and banquet between
the Delphic and Hesperian literary so
cieties which takes place February 24.
Both societies have strong teams and
it is expected to be a close contest.
