Today, February 25, 2014, nearly a month after the release of this book to the Internet, the majority of it has been removed from public view.  This was denoted in the release wherein it was stated it would be available for a two-week period.  It was longer.

As of this date only the title page of each article within the book is available.  During the time of full access, the 504 pages were viewed 6,545 times indicating its value.

This will change when and if an individual or firm agrees to financially support the availability of the volume.  It would be beneficial also to sponsor the creation of a set of archive quality DVDs for depositing at the Ohio Historical Society.

You, the site visitor reading this, will please make note that one, and only one, of the article titles below has a description attached to it.  Please!, contribute to this site by creating descriptive synopsis text about the other articles.  It is only through the efforts of yourself and I that these old books can once again become the treasures that they truly are.

Notice:  An exorbitant amount of time has gone into this digital project, with it being funded by this writer.  So, this series of pages will be available to the general public from this date, January 28, 2014, for two weeks after which they will be available to members only.  Or to those who support the preservation efforts.

The articles for this volume, the 20th in the series, published in 1911, are as follows:
