Central Press Correspondent. Sandyville, 0., Jan. 3.,-Akled by United' States army engineers and the state of Ohio, the village of Sandyville has moved, lock, stock and barrel—houses, stores and res taurants—to higher ground. The town didn't pick up Ha houses—cellars and altkks and all —because It doesn't like the background It has had since It has developed n fear of the gently flowing Candy cree'', near which it lies. No, this small town of 275 peo pie performed the year's oiitstand ing act of unselfishness so people whom it nevpr has .^een can stop worrying about flood waters. New Dam Site. Sandy Creek is u tributary of the Tuscarawas river, which, in turn is one of the main tributaries of the Fuskinguin river. It's (he Muskingum that cuts up when snow melts and rains begin. That ih why the Muskingum Watershed Conservatory district, generally conceded to be HID most compre hensive and progressive conserva- tior, developed in the United Slates, decided to build a dan somewhere to protect Ihe people whose homes are exposed and lives endangered. The officials went scouting. They spied Sandyville.- There thoy built the Bolivar dam, to carry away flood waters. The portion of the lage below the spillway elevation had to be moved, for during niper-flood periods, when (he gales of the dam are closed, Ihe water will hack up into the village, inun dating the lower portions. The strange exodus began. The new site is about half a mile northeast of the old site. "It's an old farm that adjoined the village,' says K. F. Adalr, superintendent of he engineers conducting the removal. "The farm was subdivided into S3 lots CONSISTENTLY BEST FOR LESS The New Year Is Here — So Is The GIANT with BIGGER and BETTER VALUES!

People didn't catch the spirit of goodwill to neighbors down (be river banks all in a minute. Women wanted to stay with their gardens. Old men wanted to sit under the cherry (roes and grape arbors their fathers planted 100 years ago. A new well and an electric pump were small com pen- Hal I on. Move Or Sinkf But the (owii moved! It had to —or sink! "The people went over to the neighbors on the days the houses were moved," Adair explains. " nif-ht. a house would be at home and no one had lo sleep nut in the whole procedure. When the restaurant, moved, the owner stayed inside and cooked as it went. It was stopped at noon While she served meals." TJie relocation of Sandyville nearly completed, didn't lies in until Aug. -it. Two churches, (he school building, and the grange hall will remain oji the old site because (hey are on higher ground. Except in flood times, the Bolivar dam will hold no water. People, coming hack to the village they used to know, will think they are victims of -i mirage when they see a (own rising up where once were fields of clover and timothy. Then, sighting a Barren waste where Sandyville used to be, they will be sure of it. The town, so they will have to be told, has moved. Three Dry Dams. The Holivar flam : s more than a mile long and has a maxim inn height, of 97 fret. An earthen dyke will hold back the waters—when there are wafers. This dam is one of the three so-called dry dams of this project. Eleven of the M dams of Hie Muskingum Watershed Conservancy district create permanent lakes ranging in sizv from -150 acres to 3,550 acres. Plainfield, also in 'he conservancy district^ is (o be moved in ils entirety very soon, and part of V/ has to pick up foundations, too. Ohio, in brief, is going to look decidedly different than it did a year ago. And it's all because pen- pla can't live lo themselves alone, any more.

The more rope you give a cold, the more you do to hang yourself! No cold is a "light" cold. No cold can be ignored or neglected. The cold that is pooh-poohed today is the cold that takes a serious turn tomorrow. Deal with a cold in a businesslike manner. Treat it for what it is —an internal infection! Treat it with a cold medicine not a cure-all. The Treatment That Answers I Grove's Laxative Bromo Quinine (LBQ tablets) are what you want for a cold! They are expressly a cold treatment, and not a "cure-all." They are internal medication. Bromo Quinine tablets do four important things in the treatment of colds. First, they open tbe bowels. Second, they check the infection in the system. Third, they relieve the headache and fever. Fourth, they tone the system and help fortify against further attack. Grove's Bromo Quinine tablets are nothing new or untried. They have been In use over 40 years and are the largest-selling cold tablet in the world. That, in itself, is enough to assure you of their efficacy and dependability. Play Safe! The moment you leel a cold coming on, do the wise thing. Go right to your druggist for a box of Bromo Quinine tablets. Start taking the tablets immediately and you'll usually break up the cold in 24 hours. Bromo Quinine tablets come in 35c and 60c sizes. The 60c size is the better "buy." It gives you almost 20 per cent more for your money. Ask your druggist for Grove's Laxative Bromo Quinine (LBQ tablets) and insist upon getting what you ask for. It's your money you're spending! OFFICERS NOMINATED. The newly organized Funkstown sh and Game Association nominated officers last Friday and will <;lcel next Mondiiy nigl I .T. R.
