Associated. Press dispatch from
Grants Pass, Oregon, says :
Rev. W. A. Baker, who said ho
represented the International
Bible Students' Association of
Brooklyn, N. Y., advertised that
he would speak here lost night.
Before the hour set for the meet
ing the local council, of defense
met and appointed a committee to
propound to Mr. Baker four ques
tions. They were :
"Are you a member of the Red
J'Are you a subscriber to the
Liberty Loan?"
"Have you purchased Thrift
"Are you whole heartedly and
unreservedly backing the govern
ment's war program?"
"No" was answered to each
question, whereupon Mr. Baker
was told he must not attempt to
, speak here. He abandoned his

Early hatching means better
chicks, bettor success in rearing,
higher prices for surplus cockerels
sold as broilers, mature pullets in
the fall that will lay more eggs
during cold weather, and larger,
plumper roasters and capons for
the holiday markets. It also
means greater use from incubators
and brooders and better labor dis
tribution by putting the hatching
and care of the small chicks ahead
of the ruskof spring planting.
Plan to start the incubator as
Uarly as March 10 and have the
first chicks out by April 1. Those
who have practiced early hatching
and have jjood equipment arc
starting the incubators now to
hatch in March. Get started early
this year and so produce more, and
better birds at more profit.

Another Fine Report to Credit
of Our Women Workers.
That sales of War Savings
Stamps have passed the $60,000,
000 mark and have been accumu
lating at the rate of more than
$2,000,1)00 a day is the gratifying
news from Washington. These
facts constitute substantial evi
dence that there are millions of
intelligent American citizens who
are loyally combining saving and
thrift with their other patriotic
While the Ohio War Savings
Committee is urging those of
means to join the "Limit Club"
and buy $1,000 worth (maturity
value) of War Savings Stamps
during 1918, it is just as anxious
that ' those unable to invest so
'heavily adopt a plan of consistent
and sustained saving by purchase
of stamps.
The committee has issued a
dtate-wide appeal to moderately
circumstanced people to pledge
themselves during 1918 to buy at
least one Thrift Stamp a day.
Hundreds of reports have been re
ceived showing that as many peo
ple started such a plan with the
first of the year.
"Is the seed ocrn situation real
ly as bad as the papers make
out ? " is a common question asked
by visitors, at the Ohio State Uni
versity of late, where hundreds of
tests arc being made. The in
variable answer is, "Yes. One of
tne greatest dangers that we face
is that the situation may not be
truly realized. Our tests show un
mistakably that seed corn is un
usually bad, and that every ear
should be tested." Up to the
present time tests skow that five
sixths of the corn tested lias
germinated less than 50 per cent
and nearly one-half of it germi
nated less than 20 jper cent.

On Friday night, February 22,
1918, at 11:50 oclock, the spirit
of Mrs. Mary A. Wetmore passed
to the other side. v -
She had been ill for 10 days and
fdlly realized that her time was to
be brief.
Deceased was born in Hellens
burg, Scotland, April 7, 1837, and
came to this country when a child
with her parents, who were early
settlers on Hull Prairie, in Wood
county. '
She was the widow of Capt.
Frank A. Wetmore and had been
a resident of Perrysburg since her
early girlhood.
Surviving her is her only child,
Mrs. E. L.'Blue, at whose home
the mother spent the winter sea
son, and where the funeral was
held on Monday, February 25, at
2 p. m., conducted by Rev. Dr.
Pheley of the Presbyterian church.
The reniains were placed at rest
in the Perrysburg mausoleum.

If all the world were bolshevik
the kaiser would not need to make
war in order to carry out his con
quests. President Wilson has sent his

During the past year many
workers have been taken from the
farms, factories, shops and stores.
Others will probably be taken
within the next few weeks. Next
spring and summer there will be a
greater shortage of workers than
has existed for years. Farm labor
is very scarce, and the demand is
unusually strong because much of
the fall and winter work must be
done this spring. Every person
able to work should offer his serv
ices and be employed this summer,
otherwise our people, both at
home and abroad, will suffer.

About Constipation.
Certain articles of diet tend to check
movements of the bowels. The most
common of these are cheese, tea and
boiled milk. On the other hand, raw
fruits, especially apples and bananas,
also graham bread and whole wheat
bread promote a movement of tho
bowels. When the bowels are badly
constipated, however, the sure way is
to take one or two of Chamberlain's
Tablets immediately after supper
When You Have a Cold.
It is when you have a severe cold

of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Irs.
Prank Crocker, Pana7lll., writes: "Our

cold last winter that settled on his
lungs and he had terrible coughing
spells. We were greatly worried
about him as the medicine we gave
him did not heln him in the least. A
