The fine up-to-date fire fighter
Perrysburg now owns and which
made its trial trip to a fake fire
on tJie commons near the school
houtti last Saturday evening, came
within an "ace" of being a com
plete wreck, when the driver mis
judged the corner at the inter
section of Louisiana and Indiana
As usual, the street-lamp on that
corner was -"out" and the driver
couldn't see the curb in the dark,
thus turned too short and luckily
only jracked a few spokes in one
wheel as he made a hair raising
turn at high speed.
Outside of that, the fire was put
out by the isc of the chemicals
and Everyone in town is resting
easy now as far as fire protection
is concerned.
The following is what our
Toledo friends have to say of our
town and its new fire apparatus,
as was taken from the Blade :
Toledo during the past week de-
lfc hvered to the citv of Perrysburg
a fire fighting motor truck.
In future that progressive little
city will put out its fires by mod
ern method. The "bucket bri
gade" and the hand fire cart are
history to that place.
And there is much room for
other cities 1o follow Perrysburg 's
lead. Today, at modern cost, any
small town can secure a motor fire
fighting truck equipped to put out
almostany fire.
The car selected by Perrysburg
' is a Reo and was equipped with
chemical apparatus by the Fer
guson Industrial company, a To
ledo concern.
It is predicted that the Perrys
burg purchase is only a forerunner
of what will be done in scores of
cities about Toledo. The Ferguson
company, who handle chemical
. fighting equipment for small towns
and factories, say that a number
of other towns are about ready to
follow the lead of Toledo's suburb.
There would be an advantage to
Toledo in having a large number
of small towns about so equipped.
In case of a large fire these ma
chines; could be brought here in
short time and support the Toledo
Postmaster "Wetzel received no
tice from the postal department
authorizing him to move the post
office into the new Masonic Tem
ple as soon as the buiLding is com
pleted. It will be some time be
fore this move can be made but
. the buildinsr is progressing rapid
ly ly and we hope it won't be so very
long before rerrysburg will nave
an up-to-date postoffice.
Mr. Wetzel also announces that
mail will be delivered to resi
dences on Stiyenth street provided
the houses are properly numbered

An automobile driven by Fred
Witzler and a speeder on the B.
& O. came together at the Wal
nut street crossing Saturday after
noon about four o'clock.
Mr. Witzler had "just driven his
car from the Harper garage,
where it had undergone some re
pairs and when he reached the
crossing found it blocked by a
freight train going south.
When the freight cleared, Mr.
Witzler started to cross and the
speeder, which was following the
freight closely, struck Witzler 's
car with considerable force. Both
machines were thrown from the
tracks, but Mr. Witzler escaped
with only a shaking jup. .Those
on the speeder did not fare so
well. Wm. O'Brien, supervisor on
the -IB. & O., received several
scalp wounds. Giaupine Daquane
sustained a fractured rib and
minor bruises. James .Thomas
had his back and right side badly
Dr. Cauficld was called and ren

Perrysburg will be especially
honored next Sunday night, Oc
tober 2G, in its privilege to hear
the Honorable William Jennings
Bryan in the high school adui
toriuin. It was at first hoped that
he would speak in the open so a
larger number could hear him, yet
later news comes that he refuses
to speak outdoors at this season
of the year. . So the .high school
auditorium has been selected as it
has a larger seating capacity than
any other hall in town.
The churches of town will llis
miss their services so all voters
will have the privilege to hear the
great commoner. It is needless to
say that a big crowd will be out
hear him.
It is especially urged that all
voters bo present.
You will see and hear a man of
unusual personality and. power.
It takes a great man to hold the
attention of the American public
for so many years as Mr. Bryan
has done. Hear him and you will
learn something of the reason
why. Make the most of the op
portunity to ' hear this distin
guished national leader in justice
to yourself and to the cause ho
conies to Perrysburg to present.
Ho will not only deeply interest
you every minute but will point
the way to progress and enduring
success Go and see.

During the past week the Jour
nal added twelve new subscribers
to its list, and last week we added
nine new names, making a toal of
21 for the two weeks. Of the
twelve, nine came in Saturday
under our 30 cent offer' and three
came in during the week for a
yeai". Our special offer holds good
next Saturday. Remember you
are saving 15 cents on the three
months' subscription. Again we
ask you to tell your friends and
neighbors of this offer as it is our
aim to add at least a hundred new
names to our list in the next 60
days. Wc know some of our
friends arc helping us in this way
because parties have told us when
subscribing that they were told of
our offer. Boost for the Journal
and the Journal will boost for
Perrysburg and surrounding ter
ritory. Want
and the fear of want blight many a life and
home. Saving for security is surely a duty to
one's self.
It is likewise a duty to those who are de
pending on you for li.fe and happiness.
Worry destroys more people than work. Ap
prehension about the future does not make for
' health or happiness.
Those who do not fear want because they
have a snug savings balance in the Citizens
Banking Company are bound to be more happy,
healthy and efficient than those who feel insecure
about tomorrow.
Tomorrow never comes; the wise start today.

People in the vicinity of the Bank

on the Avenve road toward Toledo.
As soon as possible the police
department of Toledo and other
nearby cities were notified and To

pockets to deposit, which the rob

The deposits of the bank are in
