THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL
t' COUNTRY LIFE WEEK "Tho country boy is worth more than the corn crop" will be the slogan of several hundred rural lead era who gather in Columbus begin ning August 10th to hold what they call "Country Life Week". "Coun try Life Week" is a series of lectur es, discussions, and exhibits devoted to a study of present rural condi tions and their possible improve ment. Unlike most reformers and uplifters of the present time, these rural life leaders do not believe that moral and social conditions in the country have become especially bad. They hold that, in general, conditions are improving but feel that some special effort must be made to improve living conditions in the country as well as in the city. Prominent in the exhibits will be charts and models showing condi tions brought to light in tho Ohio and other life 'surveys. Instead of dwelling at length on isolated cases where churches are run down or congregations arc indifferent, the speakers will emphasize the many instances of marked improvement during the last few years Some of the speakers will describe in detail methods used to improve tho edu cational and farming conditions in their own communities. The whole plan of rural life week is to give prominence to successful methods wherever found in order that other communities may copy them.

There is no show in thii country that has won for itself a reputation for merit and care of its patrons as has the 101 Ranch Wild West. It ranks in magnitude with the very largest and tours the country on ita own three trains of double lenth cars. Nearly 1,000 men, women and horses are required to give the per formance that is given twice daily in thejhuge arena. The show carries with it over one hundred Indians, and every one of them is seeing this part of the country for the first time. Cheif Iron Tail, the famous Sioux Indian, whose profile appears on the new five cent piece leads the Indian congress. The cowboya and cowgirls are all from the great 101 Ranch in Bliss, Oklahoma, and it is from this ranch, the largest In the world, that the show derives its name and which is the show's home vwhen not on the road. Miller Brothers who, with Edward Arlington, are the owners of the show are also the owners of this extensive rannh.

On the morning of the day that the show will be in Toledo a grand free street parade will be given, and even if you do not intend to witness the performance, you should not miss this mighty street parade. It is said to be the greatest street demonstration ever seen, and as tho show has made nearly all the larger cities and been lauded to the very limit by the press and patrons alike, there is no reason to doubt any thing that is promised for the parade or anything connected with this stu pendous enterprise. Two performances are to be given. The afternoon per formance at 2 o'clock and tho evening performance at S o'clock.
