ORRVILLE, OHIO, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28,1913.  3 Cents & Copy  BIGGEST CROWD  IN MANY DAYS  Attend the Stock Sale at Wyer Rudy Barns Friday  One Hundred and Forty Five Head Disposed of In 265 Minutes  CORN BOYS, WILL SOON  BE OFF TO WASHINGTON  lit was a big sale. Yes, and the largest crowd since Bob Taylor's pony sale in 1907 when nearly «very mam, woman and child in the town crowded and jammed at the spacious stables to get a glimpse of and probably puirchase one of the much admired Shetlands. The Bale Friday Was a "Winger"—ito use the American slang—in point of crowd and there wore a whole lot of buyers, .too. At 10:45 a. m. Auctioneer C. A. Wyer and Secretary J. W. ICïoipi climbed into- the box, the for-riyir announcing the sale of cattle was about to begin. Forty-nine head of fresh cows, Holstein heifers and eoime springers were disposed of In rapid order and In just seventy-five minutes that part of the sale day wias over.  At the announcement "one hour for dinner" the crowd began to disperse to th© various eating establishments to supply the inner man.  The supposed bad day because of the drizzling ir&in that kept up throughout the forenoon, proved to have been a good day for tihe sale. Farmers could do nothing in their corn fields which gave them an opportunity ito attend, whether interested in purchasing or not. The sale had been well advertised. Stockmen and farmers came from far and near, showing keen. interest by bidding briskly as the stock was driven or lead before the auctioneer's stand.  Promptly at 1:15 o'clock, the crowd, having re-asseimfbled, the s aie of -horses began. The auctioneer plead with the people to "stand - back" to afford stable employees a chance ito bring them in. Some difficulty was experienced in retain-, inig space as those standing in the rear would move forward at the slightest opportunity so as to be In front and siee them sell.  Id three houn? to the minute 9G of thé 98 head of Dakota hoi-sos, consisting of mares, geldings, yearlings and colts were owned by other parties. The two had sustained apparently slight injuries while iin transit, which was imade known to the crowd. The bidding, rather dull for these animals, it was deemed advisable to retain them for treatment and then offer same for sale at a future date. ,  One liuhdred and forty-five head of stock auctioned in two hundred and sixty-five minutes is a remarkable record when one takes into consideration the time .required to handle them, especially those of a character as possessed by some of these horses that had mover seen a halter. Besides the remarkable ability of Auctioneer Wyer, great credit is due William Smith, of Alliance, ringman, for the manner in which he handled the staff, t'hero-by enabling the sale to proceed without delay. It wias a big crowd at a big sale.  BRIGHT YOUNG LADY PASSES  AWAY AT DALTON  Six Special Trains Will Transport the Party to the National Capital.  Those M charge of the Buckeye Boys Corn Special Tour to th© National Capitol Dec. 1 to 7, estimate that there will be 1500 juniors and 600 seniors in the party.

The Time of Judging Yields Ad-- vanced  Because of early frosts, noticè has been issued by the Department of Agriculture, changing the rules to permit the retereeding of yields immediiiateily instead of the late date limit originally fixed. Each boy registered in the contest has been furnished with the report blanks to be executed by the referees and the County Commissioners have been asked to apipoint referees.

Bldidle, of Lima., O., treasurer and director of the Buckeye Boys Corn Special Tour, reporte the first National Bank, of Jackson, Jackson county, as the first to remit. This bank offered two free trips for the two highest yields of shelled corn in Jackson counity. With their remittance of $100.00 to Mr. Riddjle for two junior trip tickets, they report Daviid A.

Nowvannoir, the cashier, in his letter of remittance, says: "It certainly would do. you good t.o see the interest this contest has aroused among farmers. I am ours a great deal of good will result." Commissioner Strode tlui First Horn. S. E. Strode, late Dairy and Food Ooiinimiasiciner and now a member of the Agricultural Coim-.missdon, was the-first state officiai to make formal réservation to ' accompany the boys to • Washington.

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH AND CEMETERY ASSOCIATION  COME TO THE BIG | MEETING TONIGHT  In the Mayor's Office to Arrange for Lincoln Highway Day  Then It Happened  "Butch" Arnold occasionally enjoys the privilege ¡of delivering  Remembered in Will of the Late S. M. Brenneman—Oyer $4000 in Bequest  Members of the Presbyterian church were pleased to learn that the late S. 'M. Brenneman had remembered the congregation l>y providing a bequest of $1200 in his will. $10.00 of the amount is to be credited to the church building fund and $100 each to the Home and Foreign Missionary societies of the church. He requested that $3,000 be turned over to the board of' directors of the Orrville cemetery association toward the erecting. of a dwelling house orn. the rounds, the income of which will go toward the general maintenance  of the'grounds. - ___________  The Piresbyterlan congregation has New York to California, long contemplated the construction of a new edifice but up to the present time the mo.vemetit has not grown sufficiently to become a reality. The present site is probably the most desirable church grounds in Orrville, which—-unlike the Reformed church congregation who paid $5,250 for their lot on the apposite corner—would be a pretty fair start on the subscription list towards building a new church.  Wayne County Wily- Celebrate the Occasion at Wosster All Day Next Friday  Ho! for the big Lincoln Highway Celebration at Wooster on Friday, October 31st. A meeting of citizens of. Orrville has been called . for this Monday evening at the Mayor's office at 7:30 o'clock, to arrange "to send a large delegation to the county áeat, where big doings are said to be inj store for those i mho attend the cclcfcfatiiss.  There are níany counties in the United States that will not bq on the map— when it comes to the establishment of this memorable undertaking,—who would be delighted for an opportunity to celebrate the occassion. ! Other towns in the county will be there,,Orrville expects to be there with a bunch that will make Capital city folks, sit up and take notice.  The weather and roads of course will have something to do with the size of the crowd, but already, the boys are shinning up their automobiles so as to be in trim, to start early. - This little burg, mind you, has about 100 autos, the majority of which have declared their intentions of going over, provided the going is good. Read the big ad in this issue, then come to the meeting in the Mayor's office at 7:30 a'clock. If you haveu'tgot an automobile now, you may have one some time, so Come any way and help boost 'er along. A mistaken idea prevails among some persons that the celebrati on is in the interest of autoinobilists only. Every body in the county should rejoice that old Wayne wf 8 remembered by the commission in selecting a route from  FARMER AND HIS INCOME. The high prion of food products* Js causing a great deal of talk concerning the possibilities of money-making on the farm. Wo are told that farm life no longer presents the drudges of the old days, but that the modern agriculturist!! lives in comfort and affluence. In proof of this fact, our attention 1b called to the motor truck with which the sons of the soil bring Ithelr products to market, and the automobiles which they use for purposes of pleasure. There is a modicum of truth In all of this, but the successful former ol the day, like the successful farmer of the past, has to work hard and systematically if he hopes to make any considerable amount of money, Bays the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Department of Agriculture at Washington reports that after the Interest on an average mortgage of ?!,-716 is paid and the farm expenses are substracted from the Income from farm products, the average American farmer has $537.50 at the end of the year. At flrst blush this looks rather small, hut It must be remembered that the fanner gets most of his living direct from the soli and that practically none of this income has to be spent on the table, so that the chances are that he !b able to put more of this Income in bank for a rainy day than the man In almost any other line of human endeavor—that is to say, he may save more in proportion of his income than most of us.

REFORMED SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES MAKE REPORT  Young People Turn $700 Into The Church Treasury Sabbath Morning.

Each class has separately and individually a duty to perform throughout the year in way obtaining subscriptions to the building fund towards payment of the church debt. The efforts of these classes and the money derived, is entirely independent of the regular congregation yearly pledge.
