There was in existencein Perrys
burg a little over fifty years ago a
musical organization par excel
lence. There was a similar organi
zation in nearly every town in this
vicinity where was to be found a
considerable number of Germans.
The- village "of Perrysburg and
Perrysburg township had in its
population at that time a very large
proportion of those born in the
fatherland and had come to .this
country with the object of mak
ing this their future home. It has
been asserted many and many a
time and never controverted that as
a music-loving people there is no
other nation on the face of the en
tire globe that will compare with
the people of Germany, and that
they cling to this inborn love of
music, both vocal and instrumental,
whether they remain in their na
tive land or emigrate to foreign
-shores is also a well known fact.
The Perrysburg Saengerbund
was originally organized as a sing
ing society for male voices only
early in the winter of 1867 by John
Bader, who was at that 'time one of
the best known and most prominent
and popular Germans in this vicin
ity. He was the proprietor of a
large grocery and restaurant locat
ed on the northwest corner of Lou
isiana avenue and Third street, and
was also interested in several other
enterprises which flourished in the
town at that time. This singing
society at first had weekly rehears
als in a hall over Bader's store.
The first musical director was a
prominent vocal instructor, a Mr.
Henzel, of Toletfo The rehearsals
were always well ''tended, and
while the society at firi, i id a small
membership, interest ana enthusi
asm in it grew rapidly, as id also
the list of member ip until at its
zenith there weie en1 Jed on its.
roster a very large majority of
liiusc ul our citizens who jiuu uuun
born in the fatherland and their
immediate descendants. As above
stated, as a musical organization it
was excellent. While all of the
members were not trained singers
that is, they had not had that
voice culture that would enable
them to sing in grand opera or the
like, still under the skillful guid
ance of the musical director and by
constant attendance at their weekly
rehearsals and their perseverance
and inborn love of music soon
brought them up to a high state of
proficiency. What some of them
lacked in the finer points of voice
culture they made up in volume,
for the Saengerbund surely did con
tain some strong and robust voices.
All of the books and papers of
the organization containing the
records of the meetings, list" of
membership, etc., were destroyed
many years ago. The writer has
never seen a roster of members, but
it is safe to assume that in the list
of names which here follow, the
great majority of them were at one
time or another enrolled as mem
bers of the Saengerbund during the
several years of its existence:

Ditching Machines Make Profit
.That community ditching ma
chines may be profitably employed
throughout the greater portion of
the year is the opinion of specialists
in the department of soils, at the
Ohio State University.
Heretofore, farmers have been
putting in tile drains during the
spring and late fall months, being
limited by weather and labor condi
tions, while with the machine it is
possible to put in a larger amount
in a small time.
It has been found by soil special
ists that the blue or mottled sub
soils so frequently found in wet
areas soon change to a, brown or
yellow soil after the ground is prop
erly tiled. As the crop root sys
tems become established and more
humus is incorporated with the soil
and subsoil, the soil soon loses its
original character and becomes
loose and friable, similar to the
highest-priced Ohio lands.
Tests in comparing yields of
crops on drained and undrained
land at the Clermont County Ex
periment Farm show a gain of 18
bushels of corn, 7 bushels of wheat
and 700 pounds of clover to the
acre m favor of the drained land.
This increase alone would make it
profitable for farmers to buy com
munity ditching machines and do
tiling on.a lrge scale.
Much Smut Disease in Corn Thia
Investigations conducted by the
department of botany, Ohio Ex
periment Station, show that com
smut is increasing in extent and
that in some sections farmers are
alarmed over its unusual abund
ance this year.
The corn smut disease attacks
leaves, shoots, tassels and brace
roots of the corn, converting them
into a black powdery mass of
spores. These balls burst near corn
harvest time and infest the grain
and soil when blown into fields in
which corn will be planted next
Experiments indicate that the
corn smut disease dies out in from
eight to ten years, but with con
tinuous cropping the infestation
trains in severity each year. If the
smut balls are cut out before they
ripen the infection the following
year.is lessened, but for large corn
fields this is impracticable. Crop
rotation will aid in reducing the
With more than 100 towns in
northwestern Ohio sending delega
tions of their soldiers and citizens,
the grand victory celebration at Ft.
Meigs next Saturday, will be tlio
greatest patriotic assemblage in the
history of the state.
Predictions are that more than
50,000 persons will gather to pay
tribute to heroes of the great war
and of the war of 1812.
This assurance was given by
Wellington T. Huntsman, chairman
of the committee on delegations,
which covers every town in north
western Ohio, at a meeting of all
chairman Monday. Mr. Huntsman
said the celebration will easily sur
pass any patriotic gathering ever
held" in this section" of the country.
Assurances are pouring into Toledo
from outside towns, from the
mayors and from chairmen of dis
trict delegations, who report that
people of their various communi
ties are everywhere supporting the
plan and expressing their plans for
As a result broad provisions are
being made by the committees on

Secretary of War Baker on Mon
day wired Mayor Schreiber, of To
ledo, that military camps in this
section of the country have been
instructed to send detachments to
Ft. Meigs for the celebration.
S. F. D. Mcffley, secretary of the
Toledo automobile club, has left for
Camp Custer where ho will com
plete arrangements to bring hero
scveral.detacluncnts of infantry and
the Camp Custer band.
Beside this a number of whippet
tanks will be sent to the fort from
Camp Meade. A sham battle will
be staged. Military equipment
also is to be sent from the Erie
proving grounds, and airplanes
will come from fields at Dayton
and Mt. Clemens. The American
Legion of Northwestern Ohio, and
Spanish War and G. A. R. veterans
are planning to attend in. a body.
Lieut. Otto N. Hankison will give a
demonstration by 'the Naval Re
serves, with at least one band.
One feature of the Victory cele
bration will be the construction of
a colossal ampitheatre in the ravine
at Ft. Meigs. Seats will be pro
voided for immense crowds which
are expected, wherein former years
the audiences were compelled to sit
on the hillsides. The association
now is endeavoring to obtain Gen
eral Leonard D. Wood, one of the
leading military figures of the
country, as one of the speakers, in
view of the ceremony of presenting
six Croix de Guerre which- is to
take place during the celebration.
A tract of ten acres near the his
toric fort is being disced and rolled
for parking purposes. This will
accommodate more than 5,000 auto
mobiles. Strict police rules will be
observed under direction of the
mounted police of Toledo and the
Boy Scouts of northwestern Ohio.
