Village Virtue Appropriately Rewarded.

Issue 9 and Volume 47.

Village Virtue Appropriately Rewarded. Some time ago, James W. Ellsworth, a native of Hudson. Ohio, offered, if that village would vote to remain “dry” for fifty years, to donate it a waterworks and electric light plant and sewerage system.

The agreement entered into with the village benefactor was confirmed by a vote of 162 to 97 and Hudson will remain dry and get its utilities.
