MERCER ONLY DRY COUNTY IN OHIO TO JOIN KAISER While Even Cincinnati Shows Sips of Regeneration We . Sink Deeper in Slime The total vote on the Prohibition question in the State this year was 1,046, SiU. Two years ago it was l.Vts, 346, distributed thus : For 484,969 Against 540,377 This shows the drys polled 37,561 more votes this year than they did in 1715, and the wets polled 16,224 fewer, making a total net gain of 53,785 for the drys over two years ago. A costly victory for the wets. While they are heaving sighs of relief over their slim and sutircient majority, trie drys at state headquarters are at work tabulating offers of contributions for the next campaign. Judging from letters and telegrams flooding headquarters ottering lunds lor next year, dry leaders say the temper ance forces, particularly men from whom the money must come, are confident the next contest will put them in the lead so far that the wets never will recover. Money to conduct the campaig will be more available than for any previous campaisrn. the dry leaders assert. On the other hand, wets admit they will have a hard pull getting their usual amount of war funds. Saloonkeepers are so hard hit by war taxes that most ol them will have their hands full in break ing even and will not be disposed to con tribute to a campaign which looks like a losing one before it starts. Wets admit freely that if the drys next year hold their gains in the cities, the general election will bring enough farmers to the polls to swing the state dry by a substantial majority instead of 1000 to 2000 votes, like the present wet majority. What worries the wets more than any thingelse, says the Ohio State Journal, is that the next time the drys propose to have their amendment go into effect in three months instead of a year and three months, so that if the State votes dry the wets won't be able to intervene with an attempt to repeal the amendment, as they had planned to do this time if pro hibition had carried. Sounds Strange, Doesn't It I The biggest dry gain this year was in the wettest county, Hamilton, - the Em peror Bill's stronghold. The gain was over ll.UUU. Ihe second biggest dry gain was in Cuyahoga County, where it was over 10,000. The fifteen counties that went wet in 1915 showed a dry gain this year of 41,162, divided as follows: Auglaize 26 Butler 943 Cuyahoga 10302 Erie 794 Franklin 4496 Hamilton 11463 Lucas 2170 Mahoning 3044 Montgomery - 2541 Ottawa 621 Putnam 73 : Sandusky 685 " Scioto 189 Shelby 3649 Poor Mercer Only Crawfish In four of the countiea, Franklin, Ma honing, Putnam and Stark, the gain was sufficient to switch them into the dry column. Where the wets lost four coun ties, they gained one, God-forsaken Mercer. Summit County, which went dry by a narrow margin in 1915, made a dry gain of 3304, giving it a dry majority ot In most rural counties there was a de crease both in the dry and wet vote com pared with two years ago. TAKIN CANDY FROM THE KIDS -t The Auglaize County Democrat the chief organ of that booze coun- ty, quotes a confectioner of Wapa- koneta as saying that he Is unable to get orders filled for Christmas candies, the factories believing it to be patriotic to follow the govern- mcnts suggestions. ' The Democrat has nothing to say about lessening the beer supply to save" sugar. But there Is no patriotism In beer, Its manufacturers, or It's tools. It' the only big ally of the Kaiser and Frusslanlsm left In the country. It is not the first time beer has taken candy from the kids. 1 I Remembering how these heroes died, I To valne high, above all price, Through coming years their sacrifice.

At the close of the service, both at Ce lina and at Hopewell last Sunday. Rev. Reitz tendered his resignation as the pastor of both these Lutheran congrega tions, to go into effect the beginning of the new year. The resignation was not unexpected. for in accordance with the wishes of tha Celina congregation a new division of the work is to be made. These concre tions have grown strong enough to be come self-supporting. Each congrega tion wil call its own pastor, so that ser vices may be held regularly every Sun day, morning and evening. The present pastor has served these congregations for more than six years. Owing to his defective evesight. which. according to specialists, is caused by a nervous strain, and in order that both congregations may have their choice in calling of a pastor, Rev. Reitz considers it advisable to resign his charge. Daily Standard. If the resignation of Rev. Reitz as Das- tor of the local Lutheran congregations means his leaving Celina, it is to be hoped that it will not be accepted. He has done the work of two men daring his pastorate here, which has marked an epoch in the upbuilding of the congrega tion in Celina. His part in the work that made the splendid church edifice on North Main street a reality and the par- . sonage a possibility will always be asso ciated with his unceasing labors. That his health has suffered from this work while ministering t. the needs of his congregations has been noted by ell our citizens. Not a strong man physically, the strain has been too great. A short vacation and lass strenuous work for a while and he would soon be himself again. He should enjoy the fruits of his labor here for many a day to come. We do not know the minds of his congrega tion in Celina, but The Democrat hopes it may retain his services, and we be lieve all our citizen share this feeling.
