Government Will Provide Certified Seed at Cost. Repeated tests on the germina tion of seed corn at the Ohio State University College of Agriculture show that the corn is germinating but from 1 to 60 per cent. Most of the corn is testing but 10 p'er cent. As the result of the serious ness of this situation, t.ho Arvrimil. lural College Extension Service is sending out representatives to se cure options on corn of known quality. The corn will be pur chased with mnimv nrrvn-irln1 V.-.- L"ongress and will behold to the rarmers at cost. Beginning the week of January 28, rural teachers all over the .state were making tests of the seed corn in their districts. It is expected that these tests j,will verify the re sults' already obtained, and will indicate where the most acute shortage is to be found. Persons having supplies of good seed corn for sale are urged to ad vertise it in their local papers as well as vfarm papers, and. to com municate witli the Agricultural College Extension Service, Colum bus, Ohio. OBSERVATIONS. - Thrift made Prank A. Vander lip, the farmer and machinist, head of the greatest and richest bank in the United States. While he plowed or stood at the lathe he saved his wages, studied at night and rose in life. Listen to his well considered words: 1 '-There is not one of us who could not cut down his expenses to a standard. We can all save and as it gets into our souls and we be gin to understand what this war means and how .our personal re sponsibilities should be felt, we will havoji unity of purpose that will sweep" us on to victory. Let us buy Thrift Stamps with the quarters that we are able to save every day and every week out of our regular expenses. If we all do this,' the 25-cent pieces rattling jnto the treasury will make & noise that will bo heard at the Branden berg Gates in Berlin, and it -will be a very discouraging sound to the Germans."

A drafted soldier's lettfers, which appear in the February Peonlo's Home Journal, gives an excellent picture of camp life. To begin-with, let mc sav with all the emphasis I possess don't worry I JTonr son will work as he never worked before. He'll lead a life that is strenuous to the last de gree: but he'll be watched, over and pampered as you never pam pered him. Yes, I mean just that." bpeaking of what camp life has done for him, the young man writes : "It takes a long while to make a good soldier, but t is surprising. now ijuiuuiy me average junen can learns. After I had been in camp two months I was known as the strongest man in the company. I worked in a bank before I was drafted. I was not sickly, but soft. 1 seldom got any outdoor exercise. Mowing thelawn almost broke my back. Today I earry on my back a light marching pack of fifty-five pounds or a heavy pack of seventy pounds, i and never give it a though! In addition to this load, I tote a 8.45-pound rifle also, fre quently a pick or shovel, and carry the whole thing from ten to fifteen miles at a stretch. "I used to dread getting into a row for fear some one bigger than I would knock me into the middle' of next week. Recently I had a friendly boxing bout with a cor poral, who was once a riveter on the steel? structure of skyscrapers. He knocked me down twice. Then I got mad and scrambling to my feet I knocked him cold. "Mother had a fit when I wrofa her about it; but when she told the minister he chuckled. To mother's surprise, he remarked, 'That boy must be getting along I didn't think he had it in him I' He knew what I know. We must leam to fight with our hands as well as (Continued on page 8.) M. C. GRIFFIN. Among the many Toledo busi ness men who make regular calls on Perrysburg trade, none are bet ter or more favorably knoAvn than Mr. M. C. Griffin, 730 Broadway Place, who formerly resided in Perrysburg. For three years Mr. Griffin ,was connected with the water works department of Toledo, and for eight years he was with the Toledo Railways and Light Company at the Water street power house, later traveling as an erecting engi neer for several years. For the past five years he has been in business for himself, 'rep resenting the Willey electrically droven. tools and Ilg electric ven tilating fans and blowers,, and the Patteflon hot water heaters, pumps and motors. His x motto is reliability and loyalty and with hi3 natural abil ity as a salesman coupled with his thorough knowledge of the needs of Jho trade, has enabled him to prove the merits of his goods and establish a line of business that is alike creditable to him as a dealer and salesman, BBBBBBBBR ' 'm"&i&SSr BBBBBBBBH PUPF '.aBBBBH K- t c-VJaFJI' 3&V; MHBBBBHBfJBB 0. S. LIBERTY LOANS Bond Buying an Impetus to the Saving Spirit. One of the most rrntifvin- m. suits of the Libertv Lnnn mm. paigns to date is the impetus the saving spirit is gaming with the people in general. Most purchas ers of Liberty Bonds arc paying mi uium out oi tneir everyday earnings. Comparatively few have gone into their savings accounts to( meet their payments. This is what the government most desires. Savings banks generally throughout the countrv tho. nst year showed an increase in sav ings deposits despite the fact that something, near six billions of dol lars worth of Libertj Bonds had been purchased. This same condition was ex perienced in England. For in stance in 1916. although nnrnhns- ing billions of dollars worth of war uonds, the small savings bank de positors increased their deposits more than $60,000,000. And- the Englishman as a rule is notably profligate. The English are making their war bonds permanent investments. America will do well to follow thoir example. But every man whosells a bond discourages this plan. And every merchant who accepts a Liberty Bond in exchange for merchan dise, or in payment of an account, adds to this discouragement many fold. Moreover they are digging a pitfall in Uncle Sam's financial path by depressing the market value of the, bonds and making it more difficult for him to dispose of succeeding issues. So if you would help Uncle Sam rather than the Kaiser : Don't throw jour bond on the market. Don't accept a bond on account. An Efficient Individual. Bacon "They say Crlmsonbeak does everything well." Egbert "How about his lying?" "That's the best thing he does." Soon Over His Cold. Everyone speaks well of Chamber lain's Cough Remedy after having used it. Mrs. George LewsJ Pittsfield, N. Y., has this to. say regarding it: "Last winter my little boy, five years old, was sick with a cold for two or three weeks. I doctored him and used various cough medicines but nothing did him much good until I began using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He then improved rapidly and in a few days was over his cold."

The day my daddy went away, Among the flags that float and blow . Outside our windows, there ap peared A banner that I did not know. A scarlet flag, with bar of white, On which one emblem stood alone ; 'Twas notr an English flag, nor French, Nor did it seem to be our own. Perched on the nursery window seat, I watched it flutter in the breeze, And when I heard my mother's step, I asked her to explain it please. And mother winked some tears away, And laughed (it's queer how mothers are !) . "Why, son!"- she said, "you' didn't know? That represents our shooting star!" Beatrice Barry.
