modest life she has exemplified the

His will. To do good for others

A severe headache, a brain
hemorrhage, unconsciousness and
death, marked the quick transition

and friends feel the more keenly

the memory of her loyalty,
kindness, and helpfulness; while

"Were a star quenched on high,
For ages would its light
Still traveling downward from the sky
Shine on our mortal sight.
So when a good man dies,
For years beyond our ken,

Upon the paths of men."

Colonel Greenhalgh Talks Before
School in Behalf of Roosevelt .
Last Monday the public schools
held a short memorial service in
honor of Theodore Roosevelt.
Each room is making a donation to
the Roosevelt memorial fund.
The school was honored to be
able to have Col. Geo. Greenhalgh,
our own world war hero present
to deliver a brief address, lie
very significantly pictured the
greatness of Roosevelt and his life.
Such talks give the pupils much
inspiration for nobler service, and

Citizens Give Views on Matters
of Public Interest
We, the undersigned citizens, be
ing candidates for various village of
fices, deem it right and proper that
on the eve of the election we make
a statement as to our position on
various questions of vital interest
to the public.
We feel that for several years
past the patrons of the Maumee
Valley Railway have not had the
proper kind of service. If elected
it will be our object to use every
means possible to give the car rid
ers better cars, and at busy hours
of the day more cars. We pledge
ourselves to protect the interests of
the car riders at any and all times.
"We will make an earnest effort to
establish a truck line sewer, suffi
cient to care for the needs of the
entire village.
No citizen will doubt the need
for the permanent improvement of
Front street. Is is the main artery
of travel in and out of town
and in its present condi
tion is far from being a source
of pride. It will be our mission if
elected to effect this improvement
equitably at the earliest opportun
ity. Every consumerof electricity will
agree that both our street and com
mercial electric power is far below
standard. It will be our purpose
to see to it that we get a class of
power on a par with other com
munities. We thoroughly realize the condi
tion of the finances of the village
todav and we pledge at this time
that if we are elected we will con-
duct the town's business, honestly

i Men That Never Were Overseas
are Urged to Join the Ameri
can Legion.
It has been forcibly brought to
attention that there is a distinct
feeling on the part of a great
many, men who were not fortun
ate enough to get overseas, that
perhaps they are not entitled to
mebership, or that they have a
feeling of butting in.
This is an unfortunate situation
which must riot be permitted to
continue. The feeling on the part
of the men who went overseas is
that all men are equally entitled
to membership. They welcome as
comrades all men who were in the
service. Seldom is a man asked
whether or not he got overseas,
but when asked it is never with
the spirit of anything but curiosi
ty. The war is over. The men
have returned. The American
Legion welcomes every honorably
discharged officer and man. It is
considered of the utmost import
ance that particular stress be laid
upon this fact, in order that the
American Legion may have in its
membership, and be of benefit to,
men of all branches of the service.

splendid boost at the Bryan meet

The high school auditorium was

Prof. J. A. Neitz presided and
the mayor, Dr. Canficld, in a
brief, thoughtful way introduced
the Hon. Wm. J. Bryan. Like a
breath of summer cheer was the
genial optimism of the address
that followed, on the subject,
"What We Have Done and What
Remains to Do." The purport of
tae two wet initiatives and the
two wet referendums was fully
explained, also the absolute neces
sity of marking ballots correctly
The dangers of a dry defeat and
serious results of a wet victory
were detailed. The approach of
world-wide prohibition was af
Great bodily weariness led the
speaker to remain seated until his
climax was reached, which only
added to the searching and effect

champion great moral interests.

President of Council Receives Let
ter From State Authorities
October 8th, 1919.
C "Whitehead, Pros, of Council,
Perrysburg, Ohio. ff
Dear Sir: On Decem.bmsJ.2th,
1918, this department issued Hall
Order No. 178, covering certain
changes and improvements on
your town hall building located at
Perrysburg, Ohio.
Under date of May 15th, 1919,
our district deputy, Mr. A. A.
Wormwood, made a reinspection
of this building and found that
nothing had been done toward
compliance, except to discontinue
the tower for drying hose, and
upon his recommendation we
agreed to hold the order in abey
ance until September 1st, 1919.
On September 26th, 1919, Mr.
Wormwood made another inspec
tion of this building and again,
found that nothing further had
been done toward compliance with
this order, notwithstanding that
the date for compliance has long
since expired.
He reports, however, that it is
your intention to submit a bond
issue to the people at the Novem
ber election for sufficient funds
with which to make the necessary
repairs. Under these circum
stances, we have concluded to
again extend the time for com
pliance until December 15th, 1919,
with the distinct understanding
that if the order is not complied
with at that time, that the hall
must be closed and not again used
for public assemblage purposes of
any kind until all of the repairs
covered by the order have been
Our deputy will make a rein
spection of the building on Decejm
ber 15th, or shortly thereafter,
and if he finds that the repairs
have not been made or the build
ing still occupied, legal proceed
ings will be instituted against the
proper officials without further
Yours very truly,
Chief Deputy.
Mr. Voter, do you want the
council to rent another building to
be used for village purposes, and
also to provide a place for the
housing of the new fire apparatus,
the cost for five years will be less
than 90 cents on a valuation of
$1,000 on lands only.
