INDUSTRY FORGES AHEAD PLENTY OF EMPLOYMENT STATES BUSINESS REVIEW WAQU ARE INCREASING AND PEOPLE ARE BUYING—PEAR OF PUBLIC RESISTANCE IP PRICES ARE RAISED. The following i* an extract from the Monthly Business Review, published by the Fourth Federal Bank of Cleveland and covering the financial, industrial and agricultural conditions in the fourth Federal district, of which this locality la a part. The facts were compiled on April 20, by experts who have watched the trend of business from the producers and cdttsumers standpoint for the"past month. "The Industrial machine continues to forge ahead. Several 1920 production records were broken last month, which Indicates pretty plainly the rate at which business is traveling. The 1920 records were established by reason of demand which were neglected during the war; the present high peaks have been reached without this urge, and with comparatively little assistance from foreign trade. The present progress of business Is not tied down to a few particular lines, it Is branching out In all directions. The Iron and steel, building, and automotive industries are among the leaders. There are plenty or Jobs for those, who want to work. Labor la, as a rule efficient, though there are reports of employer aad employe restlessness aa the'tabor shortage becomes more evident.. Wages are on the increase. This means more money to spend and mora goods changing hands. People are buying and they appear to ba using good Judgment in making their purchases. They are not turning a "blind eye" on those prices which have advanced. Moat buyers do not want super- in- ventoriee such as provided to be so burdensome time ago. Delivery of goods hi some Instances, Is delayed on account of a shortage of raw materia)*, and bonuses are occasionally being offered to hasten them. There is another angle, however, which must not be overlooked at this time. For the second time In as many months the tone of our correspondents letters has been guarded. A general attitude of watchfulness Is apparent aa business shows a tendency to Increase its speed. Also, that If prices advance to a much higher level, even though Justified by advances In labor rates and other items entering Into tha cost of production, there may be resistance on the part of the public. However, this attitude of caution constitutes on* of the reassuring elements if it is adhered to. Summarising, we believe that while business conditions today have all the elements ot stability and a continued prosperity, caution Is undoubtedly necessary. Some of the elements of th* last period of undue expansion are lacking; others are following a striking parallel.. Confidence tempered hy caution is necessary if production, distribution, and consumption are .to be hold on a same level." REV. R. G. ARMSTRONG AC- CERTS CALL AT BUFFALO Word has been received here that Rev. R. G. Armstrong, former pastor of the Congregational church in Amherst, has accepted a call from a church at Buffalo, N.

J. Smythe was elected president of the board, and the other members were re-elected. Frank Q. Bandreau, of the State Board of Health gave a talk on Goitre and its prevention. He advocated the use of sodium Iodine as a preventative and stated that It should be given to children in the schools and elsewhere In small doses that could .hardly be tasted. It was the only known remedy that was effective. A great deal of goitre is prevalent among the children of the state, and much ot it can be prevented by using this simple cure. Dr. Frank Woodreau also of the State Board of Health was present, and spoke briefly on efforts being made to safeguard the health of the children. He discussed a so- called Shick test for diphtheria. Children given this test, it it is found they are susceptable to diphtheria, are given a serum which renders them Immune.

Subect: "My Mother's Church." What an Important day is Sunday. May 13! It la mother's day, a day set asldo by Anna Jarvls of Philadelphia as a slmultanlus observance throughout the world of tho love and gratitude men, women and children owe 1 heir mothers. It si a beautiful and touching Idea, springing In part from real need of revival of filial love and respect—a need more urgent, perhaps, in America than In any other country today. For many year* past, man haa worn his carnation in honor of his mother and thousands upon thousands of sermons have been preached on the text, Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother." Mothers are being lifted, even though on a cross, to heights of love and of vision that they have never* reached before. No man could do nothing more noble or honorable than to sit,down on Mother's Day and write to that grey- hatred mother if ahe Is away, and even better yet, to go and see her face to face and show tbe respect and feverence that is due her. Mothers have nearly given their all to give their children tho best that cau be afforded them and in the end have been forgotten. Why do such cases exist? The dollar-chasing game affords too much amusement and there is no time left for mother. Wear a flower In her honor and show her that she Is not forgotten and the whole world will profit by the observance of Mothers' Day. MABEL BATTENHOUSE BECOMES BRIDE OF JACOB MEULLER WEDS.

CLEVELAND STONE COMPANY RAISES EMPLOYES WAGES Employes of the Cleveland Stone < ompany, In various departments received a wage Increase from 6 to 7 cents per hour Tuesday, according to a report received from that company yesterday. The report also discloses the fact that tho company could employ at least suventy-five more men ut the Increased rate. Mrs. Jennie Colburn, postmaster, received a letter yesterday from the First Assistant Postmaster General, John H. Bartlett, of Washington, In which was the official notice of tho promotion of the local postofflce from a third class to a second class office. The letter stated that the reports of H. L. French, of Marlon, Ohio, Inspector of tho fifth division of the postal department, who was at the local office durlg the last week In April has been accepted and showed sufficient gain In the business for the past year to grant the promotion. The amount of business transacted during the last year showed an Increase over previous years by a small margin, although large enough to make the advancement. The stamp sales to become a second class office, must under the code of the postal department, reach $8,000 during the year, and the local office met the requirement during the year 1922. Starting July 1, the office will operate as a second class office, with an Increased force at the office/ and a more extensive mall service, both In and out of town.

DeSaussure, of Oberlin, had the following to say In his annual report made before the annual meeting held In Elyrla Tuesday: Lorain County, one of the northern counties of Ohio, has an area of 461 square miles and contains ten villages and twenty-two townships. It has a population of 90,612 of which 19.439 are native white, 19,266 foreign born white, 1,916 negroes, Chinese. Japanese, Indians and others. There were 133 clear days In 1911. 99 days with rain or snow, and 1M cloudy days. The precipitation was 33.18 Inches. The temperature ranting from six below sero on January 2r>th to ninety-six above zero on August 17. The average temperature waa 50.6 degrees. The last killing frost occured on May 1st and the first killing frost In the autum, October IS. The year 1922 was the warmest with the execptlon of one, (1991) since 1883 In Three Divlslone The health department for convenient consideration may be split into three divisions; the nursing division, the laboratory division, and the division of quarantine and sanitation. It should be understood however, that thes divisions are flexible and so interrelated that any division may aa- eist tbe others In time of need. The nursing division has a personnel of four: Miss Ruth Poddock, OberUn, chief nurse, Mrs. Rhea Harder, Grafton, Mrs. Gertrude Spltter and Mrs. Ruth Hawkins, staff nurses. The activities of the nursing staff are mainly concerned with the following; personal care, public health education, prevention of spread of communicable diseases and Immunization. The school work includes supervision of schools. This consists of a physical examination of each school child during the year. Defects which apparently interfere with the child's health are recorded and the parents notified. Those most frequently met are malnutrition, defective vision, diseased tonsils and defective teeth. Due to the frequency ot malnutrition in the chldren ot the well-to-do aa well as those of the poor, considerable attention has been given to weighing, talks on proper diet, milk drinking, ' etc. Follow up visits are made in the I homes of children needing attention. Vital statistic* There were 610 births reported I during the year, and there were 415 I deaths. Ot the*." 17 died from heart [ disease; 49, oaaoor; 20 pneumonia; 29, cerebral hemmorrhage; 29 kidney I disease; 6 f.bereulosls; 6, diarrheal; i 1 scarlet fever; 1 Ifphthp ia; I erysipelas; B accidental; 2 suicide; still birth, 24; all others 18. Much time was spent during 1911 on the milk Improvement of the supply In the Bounty, An order was passed to regulate the production and sale of milk and cream that has worked out very satisfactory. One of tho most pressing problems Ik that of lake front sanitation. Lake Erie Is used for a source of drinking water, for bathing purposes, and for sewagB disposal. With the rapid building up to the lake front, the congestion of summer visitors, and the crude sanitary devices the pollution of the lake becomes a grave menace to the community. It Is obvious that sanitation improvement Is necessary, and the best way this can be brought about is through action of the county commissioners by establishing sewer districts to comprise all the lake shore land not comprised In municipalities. Cost of Serviee The expense of tbe county health otfice during 1922 was $16,217.66. The commissioner received a salary of $4,000; his assistant $1,970; chief nurse$l,800; first staff nurse, $1,400; second $735; third, $375; laboratory assistant. $1,200; clerk, $971.97; laboratory expense, $235.44; anti-toxin, $309118; general ' expense. $1,493.66 •Urry Ho" Hodgeou. t*t« major „f Si Paul.
