For years the people of this county have been taxed to Impi eve the Public highways of the county. In doing so Many Nills have been graded Down and hollows levelled up at heavy expense to which All have submitted without a protest. Some six or seven years ago the City Council of Defiance passed an ordinance permitting the Wabash Railroad company to erect two High Bridges Over their Road on what is known As Ralston Avenue and North Clinton Street. Those Bridges and approaches have proved to be As great an obstruction to travel As the Hills that have been levelled Down by taxation. For some years there has been much agitation on the subject of changing the form of those structures and lowering them. The City Council now aver that the people who haul their Timber am farm products Over them Manifest no interest in the matter of changing Tho Bridges because they make no protest to them against their continuance.

Phillips of Defiance township believing that a report of this meeting of this great Farmer s organization would be interesting not Only to those who Are members of the order but also to those outside of the order who have Given it but Little consideration i desire to give a Brief report of the 22nd annual meeting of the Ohio state Grange. This meeting recently closed was held in Dayton. No better place could have been secured. Dayton is a Beautiful City of 85,000 population situated in one of the richest portions of the state. It is noted for its Well paved streets perfect sewerage system Fine churches excellent schools and intelligence and Enterprise of its citizens. In Point of Beauty it is perhaps surpassed by no other City of its size in the country. If the objects of this order were fully understood every person eligible to its membership would be found enrolled among its members. The present suite master t. Ii Smith once said that the history of the world furnishes no example of any organization so weak As the Grange that has accomplished so much Good. The declaration of principals is one of the grandest documents Ever placed before any class of men As the groundwork of organization. It embodies every right of human action and if faithfully carried out will Lead its adherents to the highest state of development possible under existing conditions. There Are Many fraternal organizations in this country but not one of them has a platform that can compare with thi9 declaration of principles in spirit action and comprehensiveness. It Aims to Advance this mental moral social and material interest of its members. Of the 80 counties in this state having Granges All were represented at the state meeting. The whole attendance was about 800. The session continued three Days. The Forenoon of the first Day was Given to hearing the state masters annual address and the appointment of committees to their regular work. The address was an Able thoughtful and statesman like review of the position of the Ohio Farmers. A few of the most important Points Are the following it has not been a year of general Prosperity but in Many instances adversities. But the future is hopeful. Pestilence has been kept far from us and we have an abundance of food for All within our Borders. In our labor troubles brain has triumphed Over brawn. We Are not a partisan organization but we Are to so educate our membership that every member shall do All in his Power to influence for Good the action of any political party to which he belongs.

It is Well worthy of mention that in All these years there has never been a Penny unaccounted for. In the evening the sixth degree was conferred on a class of 116.
