PERRYSBURG AND FREMONT. The Perrysburg team accom panied by a car load of rooters in vaded Fremont on Siuiday, and when the final whistle blew tho score was 0 to 0. The Fremont team weighed fully 20 pounds to the man heavier than Perrysburg, but the local team made up for tho opponent's beef by their speed. The Fremont crowd which numbered over GOO marveled at tho speed and aggressiveness of tho Perrysburg "kids." Mon day's papers carried the score not in the amateur list but in the pro column along with the Cleveland Indians, Massillon Tigers, Toledo Maroons, Canton and others. The game was a thrill from start to finish. Neither team was able to make substantial gains during the first two periods. In tho third period Fremont seemed to have the better of the argument. In the fourth quarter Perrysburg forced the Frcmonters to assume the de fensive and made several good gains. The Perrysburg team can not afford to book teams of Fre mont class, due to lack of attend ance here at home. Tho tie game will probably bo played off on Thanksgiving day at Fremont. Perrysburg is getting good offers from teams abroad. And the locals will again play away from home next Sunday, Tho Perrysburg Classers will battle with tho Segurs of Toledo on tho Jacal's lot next Sunday. Como out and see future Perrys burg in action.

Everybody's friend Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, the great household rem edy for toothache, earache,, sore throat, cuts, bruises, scalds, Sold at all drug stores. 25c and 50c, In tho late sixties there was a family by the name of Carman re siding in the large framo house, which is still standing, on the southeast corner of Second and Cherry streets. They had a little son about six or seven years of age, named Thomas, who lias af flicted' with an impediment of speecli and could not talk plainly. This boy was one of the best hearted and best natured young chaps in tho entire neighborhood, lie was also handicapped by hav ing a very poor memory, and was woefully lacking in what is gen erally termed in hoys as "nerve." In the yard adjoining the Carman residence were a number of large fine apple trees, hut they were back quite a distance from the front fence. One particular tree was very prolific, and in the sum mer time was generally loaded down with an abundance of ap ples of the russet variety or 'rusty coats" was what our We crowd of boys called them, were not allowed to enter , """ r Vlu &"", lV, f ., l u"y ol, U1U "lip,1,r,L? tJ1,lu iBW b'lulu ., l ' vu ri'tiuiL muni liuiu me li'iico Til. i. , A . 1 i. ' i. i i ; i ?? "T i looked so nice and temntintr. And let mo state right here that almost any kind of an apple is a good apple in the eyes of a crowd of growing boys with healthy appe tites. So it was up to us to devise some method of obtaining a sup ply of this forbidden fruit, and wo went at it in a rather bold and sj'stematic manner. One of our crowd had in his possession one of tne large oici-iashioncu copper pennies called "coppers, and with this big copper wo tempted "Little Tommy." After showing him tho big copper and telling him wonderful stories of how he could get a whole bucket full of candy with it at the "new drug store," (Insclio & Champney, then located where tho postoffico now is) we had no difficulty in inducing him to bring us all tho "rusty coats" he could carry, and we had him make two, and sometimes three trips. And wo also had a bold plan to get that big copper away from him and make it do service more than once. While several of tho boys would regalo him with stories of how nice it would be for him when he got that "bucketful of candy," two of tho crowd would quietly slip down Second street and hide behind the big elm tree that for many years stood almost directly in front of the lit tle framo residence adjoining the M. E. church, and which was used as a parsonage by the Rev. Am brose Ilollington and Rev. T. N. Barkdull when they wero pastors of the church. Then when little Tommy came tripping gaily along witli the big copper clutched tight ly in his hand, thinking of the wonderful treat in store for him when he readied the "new drug store," tho two amateur highway men would suddenly pounce upon him, and while one would put his hand gently but firmly over his mouth to prevent him from mak ing any outcry (tor when little Tommy was frightened he certain ly could scream so as to be heard all over the neighborhood) the other would deftly wrest the cop per from his hand. Then Loth would jump he fenco into Mahr's yard, and run down through the yard to tho alley, and quietly join the rest ot tho gang ' m a nice little cosy corner in the second story of tho barn in tho rear of tho residence of John G. Knoll, which wo had prepared without the knowledge or permission of tho owner, of course. Then, while wo feasted on the "rusty coats," Tommy Would return to his home, sobbing as though with a broken heart. But ho was such a good natured little chap that it did not (Continued on Eighth Page.) Her Son Subject to Croup. "My son Edwin is subject to croup," writes Mrs. E. O. Irwin, New Kensing ton, Pa.
