To Water Consumers: By the action of the Board of Public AffairB you were duly notified through the Perrysburg Journal recently that, beginning on or before July 1st, 192, all consumers of water within the vil lage must provide themselves with meters; that 'on and from that date flat rate service will bo abolished and water sold only through meters. Tho Board has carefully investigated meters and their cost. This investiga tion shows prices of meters gradually advancing with no indication of a re duction.' Therefore, tho Board has purchased from the Union Meter Co. fifty (50) meters, which will be sold at actual cost of nine dollars and fifty fivo cents ($9.55) each. This price cannot be -secured and will not be guaranteed for tho future. The above price was secured only upon ordering the quantity of 50. We may be able to secure 50 more if ordered imme diately. Tho Union and Thompson meters have been approved by tho Board and no other will be allowed except as they may hereafter be 'approved. Those who 'desire to partake of this meter at cost plan may do so by prompt action. The first fifty (50) meters now ordered will be sold to the first fifty consumers who deposit $9.55 each and furnish the undersigned the necessary information, givinir property owner's name, house number and lot number. No other than the Superin tendent of Water Works isauthorized to install a meter and anyone so doing will be acting in violation of law. By order of Board of Public Affairs. G. B. LOWNSBURY, Clerk.

FAMOUS "CHECKERS" f ' NOW A BIG FILM Special Picture Booked for Perrysburg Saturday and Sunday. William Fox will present "Check ers," tho famous racing play, as a motion picture at the Auditorium theater for a run of two days, start ing Saturday, February 7th.

There are many big spectac ular scenes in the film, such as an actual race at one of the large tracks, a thrilling train wreck in which a freight car containing several per sons and a race horse topples into a river, and a sensational scene in New York's Chinatown.

Census Enumerator JoIiilC. Jones asserts that he is confident that he has recorded every resident of Per rysburg, but in cafae any have been misse.d they are asked to send their names in to any official of the Civic Association. As this census stands for 10 years we would have Perrys burg record as many as really possi ble.

IN BUILDING ASSii Meeting Well Attended With Prospects of Early Organ ization in View. Tho building and loan meeting of last Friday, night was well attended and much interest was manifested in tho project. The address on building and loan associations by Mr. K. D. Haymaker, ' of Defiance, was very instructive and interesting and educational and it was to be regretted that every man in town did not hear his talk. As a result of this meeting a committee consisting of John H. Wilson, Dr. H. R. Roether, A. L. Cocanour, Geo. J. Munger and E. L. Clay were appointed to investigate more thoroughly and report at the next meeting of the Civic Association, which will be held on Thursday even ing, February 12. If enough interest is shown at this meeting by a sufficient number of people in town a building and loan as sociation for Perrysburg will probably be organized. But it is a big job and is not a one-man job, nor a job for a committee, but will need the united effort of a large number of citizens and every one who is interested should get busy at once and lend their serv ices and co-operation. Come out to the ' pext civic meeting if you are inter ested, whether you are a member of the civic or not. Don't wait till the opportunity is past but act now. It is up to the citizens of Perrysburg. Saw His Shadow There can be no doubt that, if the ftround hog was out Monday,-he saw his shadow, and according to the be lief of some we are sure to have six weeks more of winter. '' But the ground hog's prestige as a weather prophet is somewhat overshadowed this year, by the actions of thewild. geeset for Sandusky reports a large flock flying north'over the lake, last Friday afternoon, and according to lake sailors, this is a sure sign of an early spring. Robins, also said to be a forerunner of spring, have been re ported at Fremont and Norwalk. You can take your choice. Renews 28th Time Mrs. M. M. Hqllenbeck, who lives at Springfield, Mo., -in sending $1.50 to the Journal, notes the fact that it is the 28. th time she has renewed her subscription.
