The chorus was made up of about 35 "well-lamp-blacked" negroes ,who lacked nothing from witty remarks to the trusty razor and "de bones. " The old time darky songs, such as: "Massa's in de Cold, Cold Ground," "Old Black Joe," "Carry Me Back to Old Virginia," and 'others were sung with much sincerity, which brought applause after applause irora the audience, i A genuine "Hoe Down," and: "Clog Dance," clapped the climax, although a genuine "Nigger Crap Game" scored heavy results on ac count of the size of the dice. The end men (comedians) handled their parts to a perfection and the Colored Parson's Sermon on "Jonah Swallowing the Whale, " was alone well worth the price of admission. After hearing the solos sung by many of our prominent businessmen disguised as negroes we begin to think some have missed their call ings they should be on the stage or diverting their voice to public en tertainment of some sort. The chorus as a whole was well selected and had anything beat this side of New York. I If you were unfortunate to have missed this show you missed at least "seven or eleven" years of your life. ENTERTAINED IN HONOR OF BRIDE Mrs. T. R. Shimmons of the Meth odist church entertained her Bible class of fifteen members very delight fully at her home on West Front street last Tuesday afternoon in honor of one of the members, Mrs. Stella Carter Kopp, a bride of a few weeks. Mrs. Kopp was presented with a beau tiful wedding present given to her by teacher and classmates.

The heart of our Evangelical -faith is that we cannot be gooo alone. We need help direct and real from our Father, God, "through Jesus Christ, our Lord." Sometimes it is well to re mind ourselves of the cost to God of this help. While perhaps He could make a million worlds without getting tired, it cost His own heart blood to bring the help that will "deliver us from evil." And without this help we are weak and inefficient in our effort to live lives of moral victory. Last Sunday's services were well attended in spite of wintry weather and God made His presence felt. The sermon qext Sabbath morning on the subject: "Praying for the Kingdom." At night, "Intercessory Prayer." Also the eighth cycle of the serial "The Son of Democracy." The particular subject is "Down the River." Of course you will want- to see it and are welcome. Sunday school at 9:15 a. m.; Junior League 2:30 p. m.;Epworth League 6:30 p. m. .

II. W.. The P. H. S. boys, journeyed to Genoa to play the high school of that town Friday night. After climbing through snowdrifts and pushing the car for a ways we finally arrived there at nine o'clock and gave Genoa a fine little beating. P. H ,S. played up to form in the first half and scored 21 points while Genoa scored only three. They gave the heavyN Genoa boys a taste of real basketball and then start ed a defensive game in the last half. Genoa came back strong and by playing a very rough game they were able to pile up 11 points to our 4. P. H. S. was not used to playing on cement floors and in the second half were footsore and tired and played a slow game. The final score stood 25 to 14 in favor of P. H.'s. The girls' basketball team played their first out-of-town gme at Bowl ing Green last Friday and were de feated with a score of 26 to 18. The odds were rather against us, but we are confident that Bowling Green will be beaten Friday night when they come here for a return game. The P. H. S. freshmen won over the Toledo five in a hard and rough game at the High School gym Friday night. They defeated them 28 to 13. The freshmen deserve credit for beat ing the Toledoo five, which is a much larger team than the freshies. The town team also won from the Arrows Friday night the P. H .S. gym. The score was 23 to 12. This, Friday night the boys play Genoa high and the girls play Bowl ing Green and the freshies nlay Bowl ing Green second. Come and see us- beat them. On last Friday afternoon the Athen ian Literary Society gave a delightful program which was enjoyed by all. The next program will be given by the Phi Sigmas on January 2. Every body is invited.

OO SURPLUS $30,000.00 ' ' ' ' ' " VILLAGE TO PROTEST HIGH STREET CAB FAHES Utilities Commission Set Date of Hearing for Tuesday, February 3rd. The Maumce Valley put into effect its new fares last Friday. The fare each way from Perrysburg to Toledo is 20 cents if paid on the car. If you buy a round trip ticket at the station the fare is 35 cents. A strip of ten tickets will now cost $1.50 instead. of $1.00. The hearing before the public util ities commission will occur on Tues day, Feb. 3rd., at Columbus at the same time as the hearing- on the abolishment of the freight service, and will be attended by Mayor Can- iieldand T.M.Franey, President of the Civic Association. The village, to be in a position to know exactly how many were, riding on the cars and so that nothing could be put over on them, placed men on all cars, who took the exact number and the amount of fare paid. Some of the results were startling. The car leaving here at 6:12 last Thursday morning had qn 112 pas sengers when it reached the Ross ford city limits, and upon arrival at the interurban station at Toledo it had carried 147 people. The car will probably seat not more than 60 peo ple. The village has also gathered other matter to lay before the commission, and in this fight they will be joined by a committee composed of Attor neys W. H. Harris and L. M. Murphy, representing Maumee. A stiff fight will be put up by the representatives of the two' vilages against this increase in fare and if the results are not attained" it will' bo no fault of the gentlemen attending the meeting.
