Bids for the construction of the
Fifth street pavement were read
at the regular meeting of the coun

cussion as to whether the street
should be paved with concrete or
asphalt, the latter was adopred and
the bid of the Federal Aspnait rav
ing Co., of Hamiltoh, O., was ac
cepted. Work on the steet will
commence in a few weeks.
A five - passenger Studebaker

on Second street early Sunday
morning and upon investigating,
Nightwatchman John Amon found

M. U. Jarrett, manager of the local
telephone exchange, came into a col
lision with another machine as he was
'uiLjrauuig riiuujF evening. A&ia tttL
struck amidships another one going
east on Broadway. Both drivers got
out looked over the damage, discussed
the relative blame for the accident, and
shook hands and mounted their re
spective cars and rode on, each agree
ing to stand the expense of his own
repairs, and eachshouldering his share
of the blame. Itwas a regular Damon
Pythias, Alphonse - Gaston climax.
Both cars were more or less jammed
and wrinkled.
T3ut the story doesn't end here.
W. H. Hannah of Tontogany, the
owner of the other car, has
changed his tactics and doesn't
want to remain a Damon-Pythias,
Alphonse-Gaston, (maybe because
he found that Jarrett 's car was a
"Ford") and is trying 'now to
iaim damages.
Better give him the Ford!
W. H. Spybey, Pastor.
These are momentous days for
the world, the nations and for the
church. How shall the church, so
be set on fire with zeal that it will
arise and take the world to its
heart and win it to God? Prayer
is the secret of releasing the pow
er of God. Pray that the world
may hear of Christ, that the
church masr be saved from sin, that
God may reign over the nations of
the whole earth.

Broadway M. E. quintet was the
best game that the town team has
played this season. The Broad

dragged very slowljr and when the
whistle was blown Perrysburg had
4 points to Broadway's 11.
The second half saw new life in
the local five and by fast playing
Perrysburg managed to cop the
second half with a large margin.
