Every Motorist Should Comply With Laws Regulating Light's. ments of tho Public Schools PERRYSBURG Many thousands of America's loyal, -well-meaning and worthy citizens do not quite understand tho reason for these: liberty loans. All their lives they have regarded the United Slates as tho richest, the most prosperous and greatest nation on earth. To them it has been a land of peace 'and plenty, "the home of the free and tho land of the brave." In a word, "God's country." And now that a war has come eight or ten thousand miles away, it seems inconceivable that it should be necessary for a nation of such boundless resources to bo asking its citizenry without regard to wealth oistation to contribute to the support of the armies it must send far afield. America, like its people has been profligate of its riches. Probably the less said of th.e past extrava gance of national government, the better. You arc largely respon aible, for you have seen the acts of your representatives at Washing ton without protest. But the fact is that of the trifle more than a billion dollars of rev enues annually, nothing hns been naved. No surplus has accumu lated in the treasury. And the rainy day has come for the nation as it comes for its individuals. Now we need 20,000,000 for this first year of war. It will go for the equipping oL tho navy and the arming of land forces; for muni tions of war and big and little guns; for army and navy pay; for the purchase and forwarding of the tremendous food supplies nec essary for the army support, and for army insurance to support stricken families. Meantime our normal sources of revenue arc interrupted and our expense of government increased. We must have about $19,500,000, 000 more ready cash this year than last. Both Pcrrysburg banks will supply the bonds without charge for their services. MEN'S ASSOCIATION MEET ING. Regular meeting of the Men's Association will be held in the parlors of the M.

The area on all crops herein re ported is taken from the assessors' returns on estimated acres for the harvest of 1917. Each week, for a number of weeks previous to the harvest, wheat conditions gradually im proved, and when the machines were placed m the fields, the very general report was that the grain was yielding better than expected, and this fact is now borne out by the results of the threshing as in dicated in this report. The quality of the grain is excellent, being re ported at 102 per cent compared with an average. The present wheat crop is the largest in the history of the stato as to average yield per acre, as was predicted in last report it would be, and is only exceeded in total bushels produced by tho years 1880, 1891, 1893 and 1894. The -facts with regard to values tell quite a different story. The big crop of 1880 showed an aver age price of one dollar and si-xtcen cents per bushel, or a total value of fifty six million, three hundred and six thousand seven hundred and fiftysix dollars. The present large wheat crop, figured at two dollars and six cents per bushel, has a total value of $88,189,397, an increase in value over the 1880 crop of $31,882,641. Wheat seeding well advanced, but owing to the late cutting of corn the work is somewhat re tarded. Rain is needed badly. The oats crop is the largest the stato has ever produced, having a total production of 69,354,811 bushels, with an average produc tion per acre of 45 bushels. Qual ity compared with an average 101 per cent. Barley and rye showa good average production per acre, and also lead in the state's production of these crops. The quality is excel lent, barley being reported at 97 per cent compared with an aver age, and rye 99 per cent. The corn prospects show an in crease of two points since report of August 1, being estimated at 94 per cent compared with an average, which should produce an average of 33 bushels per acre. From assessoi'S returns, tho esti mated area planted to corn is 3,387,459 acres, which should pro duce approximately 111,786,147 bushels, being about six million bushels short of a ten-year average. Corn cutting began later than usual, and a great area is still un cut. September frosts did consid erable damage to corn in the small valleys, there being much that is soft and unmerchantable. The potato crop is being report ed at 180 per cent compared with last year, which should produce an average of 83 bushels per acre, or a total production "of approxi mately 9,000,000 bushels. Apple prospects compared with last year 46 per cent. Hog cholera reported from some sections. Help scarce. MISSIONARY MEETING.
