Philip Wetzel received word from
Washington last Saturday announc
ing the fret that his appointment as
Postmaster for Perrysburg had been
recommended to the President.
The appointment when made will
probably tako effect about the middle
of March at which time Postmaster
Yeager's appointment expires.
The appointment of Mr. Wetzel will
no doubt prove very satisfactory, as
he is worthy and capable, courteous
and accommodating in every respect
and will give excellent service.
Mr. Yeager has served faithfully for
about 14 years, and in his retirement
has the best wishes of the many bun
dreds of people whom he has served
for so long a term.
As yet Mr. Wetzel has not indicated
whom he would appoint as his deputy,
but it will be difficult for him to find
one who will render mora efficient or
faithful service than Misb Pierce who
has been in the office for a long term.
PROFIT SHARING
Perrysburg Tile and Brick Co. Will
Reward Faithful Employes.
The Perrysburg Tile and Brick
Company has decided to adopt a profit
sharing plan, and on the 5th day of
January, 1915, the company will divide
10 per cent of their net gain of 1914,
between all their regular steady em
ployes who have been in the employ
of the company for nine months or
from April first to January first, 1915.
Improvements made by the com
pany recently include doubling their
drying capacity, and have installed an
electric clay digging machine that will
load one yard of clay per minute, work
ing automatically, and Aloysius Wil
son now claims that digging clay is
easier than eating his dinner.
J. H. Wilson, the manager, says
business is better under the new tariff
as the farmers find it necessary to use
more tile in order to raise bigger crops
to compete with foreign products, thus
proving that competition is the life of
trade.
DEATH OF VETERAN.
James Stretsbury, a veteran of the
Civil War passed away at .his home in
Weston on Sunday afternoon at 4:00
o'clock. He had been in feeble health
for several months but one week ago
was taken ill with pneumonia which
caused his death. He served four
years in Co. K, 10th regiment, O. V. I.
HOW IS YOUR BOILER?
It has been stated that a man's
stomach is his boiler, his body is his
engine and his mouth the fire box. Is
your boiler (stomach) in good working
order or is it so weak that it will not
stand a full load and not able to sup
ply the needed energy to your engine
(body) ? If you have any trouble "with
your stomach, Chamberlain's Tablets
will do you good. They strengthen and
invigorate the stomach and enable it
to do its work naturally. Many very
remarkable cures of stomach trouble
have been effected by them. For sale

A gentleman who was making a
canvas of his district for the purpose
of ascertaining how many women fav
ored woman suffrage, called at the
home of a lady and said: "Madam,
are you a woman suffragist?" "No
sir, I haven't time to be." "Haven't
time! Well if you had the privilege
of voting, whom would you support?"
"The same man I've supported for ten
years." "And who is that?" "My

"BE ONE OF US AND -BOOST

your dollar in the Treasury and your

that you love the town; that you be-

to help make that future a grand and
glorious success. Get all this in your

A man dropped his wig on the street

"You'll be done better in Toledo"
is the way the circus performers who
came to Toledo to put on the Mid
winter Circus benefit of the Womans
building fund speak it. The circus
was a financial failure and salaries
were not paid. The newspapers say
the women are not responsible and the
atranded actors have taken the case to
court to ascertain who shall pay their
salaries. It looks like a mighty cheap
game to play on the actors who did
their work expecting they were dealing
with people who would play the game
on the square. Evidently they were
"Done well iu Toledo."

Thatnoneof the passengers were
killed seems a'most a miracle, when
the Mnumee Valley passenger car was
struck by an engine on the Terminal
road at the crossing north of Maumee
on Thursday night last.
The Valley car left Toledo at 9:36
p. m,, for Maumee and Porrysburg
and reached the Terminnl crossing
about 10:00 p. m. and as the car was
passing over the railroad track an en
gine with sis cars which was coming
toward the river struck the electric
car in the middle lifting it up and
carrying it nbout 75 feet from the
Valley tracks and throwing it about
45 feet from the railroad tracks, leav
ing it setting on its trucks.
The passengers (three men and two
women) and the crew of conductor
and motorman all escaped with their
lives but were badly bruised.
The passengers were:
Edmund Bcown ot Perrysburg,
Manager of the Edward Ford Plate
Glass company. Mr. Brown received
a severe cut on tue head and was
otherwise bruised and scratched. He
was unconcious when picked up and
after being brought to his home in
Perrysburg, Dr. W. H. Rheinfrank
was called and found it necessary to
take several stitches to close the
wound on his head. Mr. Brown
now able to be about.
is
William Charles of Perrysburg, was
also badly bruised and shaken up,
and was unable to leave the house for
several days.
Mrs. Coatee, Traveling Inspector for
the Miami childrens' Home was so
severely injured that for a few days
her recoverv was in doubt. She was
conveyed to the Home, about a half
mile distant, and Drs. W. H. and W.
L. Rhonehouse of Maumee were call
ed and worked with her until morning
before she was in condition to realize
her situation.
The others were more or less bruis
ed. It is stated that the conductor and
motorman escaped with but slight
injuries.
The conductor was Harold Lees of
Maumee, and the motorman was
E. O. Pontias, of Perrysburg.
The car was a comploie wreck and
those who saw it state that it is almost
miraculous that any person could
have been in the car when the engine
struck it and have come out of it
alive.
Every seat in the car was ripped
loose from the floor; every window
was broken; and in every respect it
was one of the most complete wrecks
possible to imagine.
The question of how it was possible
that such an accident should occur at
that point is one that is deeply inter
esting every person who uses the Val
ley line.
It was a bright moonlight night,
with nothing to interfere with observ
ing the approaching train if the usual
rules governing the crossiugv had
been observed.
The rules of the Valley line, wo are
informed, provide that cars approach
ing a railroad crossing should come

A WINTER COUGH
A stubborn, annoying, depressing
cough hangs on, racks the body, weak
ens the lungs, and often leads to seri
ous results. The first dose of Dr.
King's New Discovery gives relief.
Henry D. Sanders, of Cavendish, Vt.,
was threatened with consumption,
after having pneumonia. He writes:
"Dr. King's New Discovery ought to
be in every family; it is certainly the
best of all medicines for coughs, colds
or lung trouble." Good for children's
coughs. Money back if not satisfied.

last Friday afternoon in which Rev.
Zachman, formerly of this place, was
killed.
Rev. Zachman, accompanied by
three ladies, who had taken dinner at
his residence a short time previous,
were driving iuto the country to attend
a prayer meeting. As they were driv
ing along the road a largo dog ran out
into the road and in order to avoid
striking the dog, Rev. Zachman turned
the machine to one side, when it skid
ed and turned over into the ditch,
pinning him under the machine.
The ladies were badly bruised, but
none fatally injured.
Help was secured from a neighbor
ing farm house, and the injured man
was removed from the wreck. He
was taken to Bradner from whence he
was conveyed to the Toledo hospital.
Dr. W. H. Rheinfrank of Perrysburg
was called to operate in the hope of
savmc his life, but tne injuries were
so great that nothing could be done to
releive him, and he died shortly after
reaching the hospital.
Rev. Zackman was well known here
where he was pastor of the Evangel
ical church for several years. He
leaves a widow and several children.
The funeral services were held on
Thursday at the church in Bradner
and the remains will be taken to Mar
ion, Ohio, for interment.
