Saline took their final drubbing from Manchester Sunday, 13 to 0. Although only nine hits were made off Saline pitchers they were turned into a baker's dozen of runs. We were unable to get sufficient players together to give the boys their regular places and numerous errors was the result. But hope springs eternal, etc., and next spring is another day, and with a new battle-, field, if we have one, we promise, a" better team. If we don't have a playh, ing field in Saline the boys have "an offer to play all games away from home. ROTARY CfLTJB "MEETING There was a good attendance at the Rotary Club last Thursday, and all were well repaid for turning out. George Schmid, Jr., gave a "vocational talk that proved very interesting. Among other things he told of the time, before the introduction of refrigerators, when 'it wasn't possible to carry much stock on hand —that one had to butcher a beef at night, put it on sale in the morning, and kill no more until that was practically all sold. In those days, too, it was considered unhealty to eat pork during the summer, and as to eating veal—it simply wasn't -dorms- He traced the development of refrigeration from the first crude ice box up to the present elaborate electric systems. Likewise he told of the development of other mechanical devices, such as grinders, sausage stuffing apparatus, and altogether made a very wort?!' _*hile talk. E. F. Henne told of his recent trip to Niagara Falls with his family and his mother, the party making the entire journey without tire trouble or other annoying incidents. They paid a visit to the big exposition at Toronto and were more than favorably impressed with it—in fact, so much so he recommended that every member of the club who could do so visit Toronto when their exposition is in progress, as it is more than well worth attending. SEASON OF AUCTIONS IS FAST APPROACHING With fall comes auctions and with auctions come bills and advertisements all over the country. The season is fast approching and to those who are considering having an auction sale, especially those living within the radius of Saline's trading territory, are urged to see what this newspaper has to offer in the line of territory coverage and the price we have on -sale bills. A check-up of the users of Observer printing and advertising last year showed that the results were more than satisfying and with less expense for advertising than usual. STATE'S OIL INDUSTRY IS NEAR MILLION CLASS The oil industry in Michigan is stepping' into the "million " dollar" class, figures from the offices of the state tax commission show, and with the development of the industry Michigan stands to receive a substantial increase in its revenue. Based upon the tax collection of $15,141.68 during July the production in the three fields, Muskegon, Mt. Pleasant and Saginaw, the value of the oil and gas brought above the surface in that period was in excess of $750,000. The tax levy is two per cent on the value of the gas and oil at the well and without the deductions which are made for handling.—Michigan Investor.

Another bad auto wreck occurred at about 7 o'clock Wednesday morning almost, under the red light at the main four corners, when a Chrysler car from. Milan, with Mrs. Isabell Conklin and Mrs. Lucy Knoll as oc- pants, struck an Indiana truck. The car belonged to Roy Alf erd of Milan, and the ladies were enroute to the Kyer laundry in Ann Arbor, where they are employed. The truck, . going east, had the right-of-way. The sedan came from the south at high speed, evidently not under control of the driver. When the car hit the truck it was turned completely around and crashed into the curb in front of the Saline Confectionery, badly wrecked. The two women were thrown to the pavement unconscious. Doctors Wallace and Woodbridge gave first aid assistance and the ladies sent to the hospital. Their injuries were not considered serious.
