During the season the Perrys burg team has scored 140 points while their opponents have se cured only 19. The Pcrrysburg-Gcnoa game scheduled for last Sunday was cancelled by Genoa Saturday morning. This was too short a notice for the locals to secure a game. MAPPING SCENERY OF OHIO.

It is probable that boating on the beautiful Maumee reached its max imum in the few years between 1874 and 1890, for to the best of my recollection there was a larger number of pleasure boats owned and used in Perrysburg in those few years than at any time before or since. There were all kinds of boats, from the crude article of a few boards nailed together to the fine clinker-built boats, nicely painted and varnished and with upholstered seats. Rowing in those days was considered fine exercise, and in tho summer evenings the surface of the river would be dot ted with numerous boats, the oc cupants of which were out for fresh air and exercise. Most of the boats on the river were built in the 'burg, but a few of them were made by J. "W. Hep burn & Bro., the crack boat build ers located for a number of years in Toledo. The one man who per haps built more boats in our town than any other individual was George Lafarree, while his brother, Gus Lafarree, was a close second. Nearly all of the boats built by these two gentlemen were made of white pine, w'ere built on graceful lines, and were good and substan7 tial craft. There were mooring places all along the river front from the old bayou just above Ilirth's tannery down to Thorn ton's brickyard, and it was no un common sight to see a dozen boats moored in the little bayou between the old mill dock and the big dock at the foot of Louisiana avenue. These boats were used for nu merous purposes, but mostly for pleasure riding and for fishing. Also they were occasionally bor rowed by crowds of small boys (without the knowledge or consent of the owners), when they were possessed with an overwhelming desire for a swimming fest over on Big Island, where there was a nice sandy bottom, "War Club Island, or across the river at the locks of the old "side cut," now abandoned, where the water from the Miami and Erie Canal, emptied into the river. And the average boy of that period knew just how to sep ai'ate a padlock and chain from any staple to which it was attached in record-breaking time, and with out either injury or damage to either tho lock or staple. However, the boats were generally returned to their proper mobriiig places within a reasonable time. There were other times when the hoys could indulge in their de? sire for being on the water in boats of which they could not claim the ownership, and that was when there would be a lake vessel at the foot of Louisiana avenue for the purpose ot taking on a cargo or oak staves, of which there was such an enormous quantity shipped from Perrysburg in years gone by. Sometimes there would be from six to a dozen vessels loaded at this dock in a single season. Usually the captains were generous and good natured, and were not averse to loaning the yawl boat of their good ship to the crowds of small boys who were usually clamoring for this privilege as soon as the vessel was made fast to the wharf. And they certainly were safe boats for a crowd of boys to be in, for the writer was on one occasion a member of a party of about a dozen boys on an excursion to.Big Island in one of these big yawls wheu we tried to capsize it, and after working hard for over an hour and being unable to make it do moro than dip a little water, we (Continued on Eighth Page.) Tho fifth Annual Farmers' "Week will be held in Columbus from Jan uary 29 to February 2 at the Ohio btate University. During that week the institution throws its doors wide open to the agricultural interests of the state. Every ros- siblo effort is made to offer in struction, inspiration and educa tional entertainment for the farm ers and their families. Sixty lec tures and demonstrations on agri culture and home economics by the leading authorities of Ohio and of tho United States are scheduled for the program. If the ground is not too wet or frozen, continue to spread nianuro freely and turn it under. Fall plowing will assist in making the organic matter available. It will also bring to the surface multi tudes of the larvae of harmful in sects, and will cover up others nor mally nearer the surface so as to prevent their emergence next spring. Mulch the strawberry bed after the ground freezes with three or four inches of coarse straw. This will protect the plants from alter nate freezing and thawing. "When partially raked aside in the early spring, the mulch will serve to re tain the moisture and keep the fruit clean. The tops of the asparagus bed should be cut, thrown into the fire and burned by this time. After the- ground freezes apply a heavy coat of manure. Three or four inches will not be too much to ap ply.
