Coldwater Bonds
to Be Sold Monday
Fourteen thousand dollars worth of
five per cent highway Improvement
bonds will be sold by the village of
Coldwater Monday, sealed bids being
received up until 12 o'clock noon on
that day. This lot of bonds were of
fered several weeks ago at four per
cent, but failed to sell. The council
then ordered them re-ad vertised at five.
Owing to the condition on which the
bonds are sold the premiums will not
likely be large even at five per cent.
The bonds are of five hundred dollar
denomination and due one each year
from WIS until 1H27, and eighteen due
in 11)28.

in Maria Stein Chapel Is
Highly Praised.
Wapakoneta Daily News.
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Stueve and chil
dren of tills city, and Mr. and Mrs.
K. C. Stueve and daughter of Cincin
nati spent Sunday with relatives and
friends in Minster. They also drove
over to Carthagena and Maria Stein,
where they visited Kev. Father Hubs,
who is an uncle of Mrs. H. C. Stueve.
At the latter place they visited the
new chapel, which lias just recently
been completed, and the decorations
of which were done by Father Polinus,
an Instructor In the Carthagena Sem
inary. Mr. Stueve says the Interior
decorations of this chapel are among
the finest he has ever seen, and that
Father Polinus is an artist of merit. It
has taken him two years to complete
the work of decoration. At Maria
Stein they also looked In on the Con
vent, an Institution with which they
all have an Intimate knowledge.
The trip from Minster and return
waa made In a carriage, and despite
the dust and heat was an enjoyable
one. They say that through the coun
try from Minster to the Mercer County
points which they visited corn Is look
ing fine and is almost six feet high, al
though it is right now needing rain
badly to insure the making of a good
crop. Oats In that section of the coun
try is an exceptionally heavy crop,
about one-half of wblch remains to be
cut. ,
Including Minster and the territory
through which they passed, about one
dozen settlements containing churches
and schools are noted, thus giving the
country almost the appearance of a
continuous village, such as are to be
teen in Germany and Switzerland.

Supreme Court Decides Boards
of Equalization Must Com
plete Work by Oct. 1.
Property-Owners Must Try to
Settle Troubles at Home Be
fore Appeal Higher Up.
Cincinnati Kntjuirer, July 21.1
Publicity will be the keynote of the
State Tax Commission at Columbus,
according to a statement made yester
day by President W. B. Poland, of this
city, who arrived in Cincinnati yester
day. Shortly after his arrival he an
nounced the issuance of the first set of
orders of that body to Auditors of each
county in the State and the Boaids of
Review.
The first order requests the Auditors
to send copies of pamphlets issued by
the city boards of assessors for each
ward in all cities and copies of those
ssued for each township and village.
The commission wants to be notified if
any complaints have been made by
property owners who may not have re
ceived these pamphlets. Speaking of
the pamphlets, President Poland made
the following statement :
The Tax Commission regards the
mblicity feature of the quadiennial
appraisement law as of vital import
ance. In many cities the pamphlets
will be of great help in the matter of
equalizing values and correcting errors
that might have worked hardships.
"In the cities the pamphlets issued
n each ward contain the name of the
owners of each piece of property, the
number of the lot, the foot frontage,
the value of the land fixed by the ap
praiser, the value of the building or
buildings erected on it and the street
number at which it is located. By
this method property owners have an
opportunity to compare the value put
on their own lots with the value put
on those of their neighbors, thus mak-
ng discrimination impossible without
detection.
'The Tax Commission, in making
its request lor copies of these pampb-
ets, assumes, as a matter of course,
that the law has been followed, and
that the pamphlets have been printed
and distributed as the work ofappraise-
ment has been completed. If, through
oversight, such pamphlets have not
been distributed to each property ow
ner as the law requires, the absense of
such pamphlet can bo noted hy the
commission, and the derelict official
or ollicials can be notified to comply
with the law's provisions."
Time Limits of Work
The Board of Equalization must com
plete the work by October 1 under in
structions from the Tax Commission
and tbe Auditors shall transmit an ab
stract of all real property in each tax-
ng district prior to November 1, 1910.
Considerable confusion appears to
prevail in tbe minds of some of tbe
county ollicials throughout the State as
the result of two contacting laws hav-
ng been passed by the Liewislature on
the same day relating to the work of
the Boards of Equalization. One pro
vided for the completion of the work
n February, and that Introduced by
Senator Royer, of Tiffin, set the time
as the first Monday in October. The
Supreme Court has decided that it su
percedes the Hendley law, in that the
Royer act was found to have been
igned last by tbe presiding officer.
Both sections, however, were reinsert
ed in the new General Code, which has
ust been issued. The second order of
the Tax Commission provides that this
Information shall be compiled by Octo
ber 1, and the report of the County
Auditor must be on file in Columbus
one month later.
The House ol Last Resort
President Poland stated property
owners with kicks must first use every
known resource in their home districts
to have the alleged errors remedied
before marching on to Columbus.
The Commission," he stated, "be
lieves in 'home rule' under all circum-
tances. When all known methods of
correcting faults have been used, then,
nd not until then, will the case of a

Killed His Horse
on Short Notice
A horse belonging to Dave Beougher,
of west of town, dropped dead last
Sunday afternoon while being driven
around the race course at the Fair
ground. Beougher claimed he put the
animal on the track to see whether it
could make the mile course in sufficient
time to justify blm to enter the county
road race at the Fair and bad only
driven the animal around the half mile
three times. Parties at the Fair
ground stated that he drove around
the track a dozen or more times, which
if that be true, with the intense beat,
was enough to kill anything.
Chas. Hole, a trainer, who has been
working several horses on the the track,
was reported as saying that Beougher
drove the horse around the track seven
teen times, and shortly before it drop
ped dead on tbe home stretch, be had
told Booagher that it he wanted to kill
the animal be could finish the lob
quicker by shooting it.
When questioned by Humane Ofiieer
Higbt, however, Hole said he could
not say bow many times the animal
was driven around the track, and pos
sibly it was only three or four times.
He admitted to remarking about the
driver killing tbe animal, though, say-
ng that he said that because the horse
was hanging its bead to one side and
ho wed that it was almost ready to drop.

IE
Wool Trust and Not the Sacred
Tariff That Regulates the
Price of Wool.
That tlio federal government should
invertigate the combine which keeps
down the price of wool, just as it has
skirted to probe the butter, metal and
cotton markets, is the opinion of Alben
Moreland, a farmor of Centerburg.Ohio,
who has raised sheep all his long life.
He says that the present price of wool
is conclusive proof that President
Cleveland's attitude on the tariff" was
nothing that should have frightened
wool growers.
Boston wool growers have a con
trol of tbe market similar to that held
over butter by Elgin men," said Mr.
Moreland. "They appear to be exer
cising their power just at mis time
more energetically than usual.
"They are not buying now although
this is the time of year when buyers
are usually active. I am not blaming
local buyers in Ohio. They depend
olely upon what the Boston fellows
y. Buying oruinaruy begins by June
1, but this is the middle of July and
they are hardly under way.
"Besides the price is away down. Do
you suppose!that wool is wcrth only
11 cents a pound? The highest offered
now in our vicinity is 22 cents, and as
there is a tariff on wool of 11 cents
which is presumed to add that amount
to the price, our wool, according to the
republican theory would be worth only
11 cents now with the tariff. Last year
it was 30 cents at this time from the
ame sheep.
Under the Wilson tariff a great cry
was raised that farmers would lose by
drop in the price of wool. Now wool
as dropped, but the tariff is the same
as it has been for years. Sheep are not
so much more numerous; use of wool
has not decreased; but here we are
with a price at the bottom. The tariff
may raise the price of wool clothes, but
it does not give more money to the
farmer. The country might as well
have a low tariff and the people low
priced wool clothing out of the huge
profits that the middlemen are now
reaping.
Tbe following announcements are
made by Rev. Bauders of tbe Church
of God: 9:30 a.m., Sunday-school; 11
m., preaching at Mt. Carmel; 8 p.m.,

members of the union to work along
the following 20 lines, each reporting
to her captain the number of points
made each week and captains report

union reporting at the county conven
tion the whole number of points made
and gained.

Unusual Snarl
I Ft. Recovery Tribune, July 2M.
Geo. II. Heffner went to Celina
Wcclhckdny to get out an injunction
against Fuller Bros, to prevent them
from constructing the cement gutters
along Boundary street claiming the
right under the contract to construct
them himself. The d ifferenee In price
to the property owners will be about
fifteen cents per ft. If M r. Hetl'ner's con

0L0 DISCARDED
Known As Delphos Uranch of C.
II. & D. Become Sudden
ly Animated.
The local branch of tbe C, II. A D.
between Davton and Mandate is doing
a rushing freight business at present,
owing to the fact that almost all the
freight business of the Main line be
tween Toledo and Dayton is being
routed over tills branch by way of
Mandale. The main line of the road is
being double tracked between Dayton
and Lima, and to save the bother with
the freight trains they are being routed
this way. Owing to the poor condi
tion of the tracks on this branch the
big locomotives have to proceed with
much caution, and there is likelihood
that a number of wrecks will occur
before the use of this branch is discon
tinued.

cent limit did not cover bonds which
were provided for by popular vote.
THEM VERY WISE
1st. Marys Graphic, July 2H.
Farmers in Mercer county who pay
from 7o to $0 for ranges to non-resident
sellers must not know that ranges of the
same kind or better can be bought a good
deal cheaper from home dealers, but we
are not prepared to say who's fault It is.
The home dealer may be a little back
ward in letting the farmer know that
he's got them, and this should be a lesson
on the policy of advertising. Better
spend a little money on advertising and
thereby also contribute a well-merited
pittance to your home printer, than to

AUGUST
Last year,
Alack and nlast
Keverly. Mass.,
And Kill on the tlat
Of his hack in the grass
hounding the depths
(if the opaline sky
And wntcliiug the clouds
Floating dreamily by.
Last year.
Alack and alas!
Beverly, Mass.
This year,
Sagamore Hill.
St reiiuous still,
And no one complaining
For want of a turtll.
Shindy ami nhss
Just as certain as fato
Beverly, Mass.,
Can dream early or lute.
Snore as It pleases
And snooze us it will
This year,
Sagamore Hill.
Of AtiLMist it mav firBt be said, its
name Is from Augustus, whom men
have likened unto Ted, perhaps with
out injustice. He made the world go
round about as many times a minute,
and the news was always dull without
the great Augustus in it.
He had his Ananias Club for liars and
for fakers, and he loved to sail his little
tub nmonc the Roman breakers. He
counted peace a sort of plague, and
never did pursue it, but let it rally at
Tbe Hague, and you couldn't beat him
to it.

Sudden Closing of Jim Jeffries'
Business Career Points Moral
and Adorns a Tale.
In a recent debate at Reno
James Jefferies failed to convince
Mr.
Mr.
John Johnson.
Some seven or eight years ago
Jefferies was the leading man in
Una of work. Business was good
Mr.
bis
and
bis profits were big.
Having all the money he could han
dle at the time he concluded to take a
rest.
To be sure, be planned to get in tbe
field again at a certain time.
But everything was rosy and there
really seemed no good and sufficient
reason why be should spend so many
hours a day keeping his muscles lithe
and strong, his wind good and bis
heart and nerves in trim.
Eventually the meeting with Mr.
Johnson was arranged. Mr. Jefferies
was still tolerably content with what
he had done.
(Brother, a bas-done is about as bad
off as a has been.)
Mr. Jeflerles did not care to stand
up in the training ring and punch and
take punches. He did not see any
neccesslty of practicing side-steps and
feints and rushes.
He knew all about them. Why.
seven years ago he bad done all that
be ever needed to do.
Mr. Johnson did not overlook the
boxing and wrestling and the clinch
ing and the side-stepping, etc.
Asa aesult, Mr. Jefferies recleved
Mr. Johnson's compliments on the
point of the Jaw and his business ca
reer closed.
Advertising a business Is the train
ing of that business.
Advertising keeps a business heal
thy. It tones np its liver, strengthens Its
biceps, steadies its heart and keeps its
nerves in order.
Once in a while a man decides that
he is doing so much business that he
can stop ad vertising for a while and
run on momentum.
Momentum is tbe gradual process
toward a full stop.
The momentum business is usually
prematurely full - stopped by tbe
straight left jab of tbe well-trained
competitor who finds his opening in
the fifteenth round.
If you want to stay in business stay
in the advertising field.
No matter bow much business you
are doing, keep up the energy that
makes it.
You might as well cut off your legs
because you are running well in a foot
race as to cut off your advertising be
cause your business is too good.
You might as well tell the insur
ance man that you are so healthy you
will drop the policy for a few years as
to stop advertising becauae tbe orders
are piling up.
"Don't need to" is tbe eventual pre
liminary to "Can't do it."
The only man who doesn't need to
ad vertise is the man who has retired
from business.
Tne only policy holder who doesn't
need to pay his premiums is dead.
Mr. Jeffries doesn't need to train any
more. He's licked to a standstill.
The Kids will go to Portland, Ind.,
next Sunday for a second game with
the Jay County lads.
In a one-sided combat of a slugging
match on the part of the Kids, and a
comedy of errors on the part of those
fast(?) and invincible (?) Wapakoneta
Reds, Celina won out in easy fashion
over the Auglaize county lads in
Wapak town last Sunday afternoon.
For tbe first three innings of the con
test it looked like a pretty match be
tween Mr. Fredericks, the young table
maker, and Charley Pfenning, the
old-time Wapak slab favorite, but in
fourth, in the sixth and in tbe lucky
seventh it well, we'll leave it thus, as
Editor Hoffer of the Daily News puts
it: "The Red warriors, prototypes of
the old-time Griff warriors, went to
grass in a heap before the unfathoma
ble curves of a novice from off the
banks of the Celina reservoir. One
and all of them, without a saving ex
ception, went up in a baloon, and there
seems to be no likelihood that they
will reach terra firms in time to land
on Fredericks' curves again this sea
son." Wapak's part, told in a nut-shell,
with but one exception the dirty
work of one of the Reds dirty players.
outfielder Kinninger, who saved his
club from a shut-out in tbe sixth in
ning, by hitting short-stop Geo. My
ers in tbe side of the bead. His Dlrty-
ness singled and stole second in tbe
sixth. Kichler followed with a line
drive to short, and Myers would have
easily taken the ball for a double, but
Kinninger ran out of line a bit and
poked George over the left temple with
his elbow, just as he reached for the
ball. Tbe blow put George almost out
of business, while the ball went safe to
left-center, Kinninger scoring tbe lone
tally.
The first flight of Editor Hoffer's
aviation meet occurred in the third.
Fredericks, the first man up, dropped
one in the dust in front of tbe plate.
Burke recovered the ball but threw
wild to first, and the table-maker was
safe. C. Myers then singled cleanly
to center. Pfening then got on the
machine and bit Betz In the ribs, fill
ing tbe bases. G. Myers attempted to
sacrifice, but forced Joe at the plate.
The infield then crawled in ior Burris
to turn the same trick, but be drop
ped one just out of reach in right and
two men scored. Klstler struck out
and Burke attempted to catch Myers
at third, but Strasburg fumbled and
George trotted home. Wenning went
out Strasburg to Cleeves.
Captain Ellis tried hard to keep it
up in the fifth but failed. After Mc
Comb had struck out he singled to
center, stole second and third, but got
no further. Fredericks struck out and
Mvers flew out to Kichler.
Betz then cut the first of the ropes
for the big ascension in the sixth and
