What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

With a view to improving conditions in the Ekalaka schools in that respect, the ladies of the Social Improvement Club have planned a big benefit show to be given at the Play House, on Wednesday night, May 9th. This is a move that merits the support of every man, woman and child in town and you should buy a.t;cket or two from one or more 0; the ladies and help start a fund from which the whole community will benefit. Immediately after the show a dance will be held. Orders a Truck There is now some hope for the local merchants in getting their freight hauled out from the rail- road. Since the winter broke up there has been freight shipments piling up until some 300.000 lbs. has accumulated, which is for the Ekalaka merchants, and with practically all the freighters gone to farming it was up to the local men to take charge of this mat- ter and effect a remedy or \close up shop.\ Ben Evers of 13aker was here the fore part of the week and made arrangements with the merchants to secure their frieght hauling and imme- diately placed an order through the Baker Auto Co. for a Jeffery four-wheel drive trusk.

Practically all road construc- tion work in Fallon county, es- pecially in the south and central parts, is being held up pending the decision of the Supreme Court on Carter county. Nobody just seems to know exactly where they are at, and this condition will remain until such time as a decision is received. Our Former Wars At this time when we are en- gaged in war with Germany, it may be of special interest to re- view the different conflicts in which this nation has been en. gaged within the last 141 years. The present is the seventh war in which we have been engaged. The first was the war of the revolution, when we had a mili- tary strength of 294,791 men; the second was the lwar of 1812 when we had a military strength of 556,622; tee third was the Florida Indian war, in which 41, 122 were used; the fourth was the war with Mexico in which 104,730 soldiers engaged; the 5th was the war of the Rebellion or Civil war in which Z288,789 men fought on the Union side; the sixth was the Spanish-American war, in which the United Ststtes had 251,982; and the seventh is the present war with Germany. Good authority gives it, that at the present time the United States, including the regular ar- tny and the national guard, has 250,000 men now ready for action with 15,000,000 availabe for duty if called upon which is the great- est of any one nation in the world. Of course, there are na-_, tions with greater population than the United States, but when it comes to men capable of mili- tary service she out -ranks them all. Germany is accredited with 6,200,000 and Austria-Hungary with 5,000,000 or about 3,000.000 less than the United States, In Russia there are 14,000,000, France, 8,280,000, dreat Britian, ti,73e..000.„ Takiag thew: figures, in numbers at the present time, the odds are more than three to one against Germany and Aus- tria-Hungary. —Star. Not Too Late For the benefit of those who have missed the first two episod- es of the great serial \Liberty\ now running at the Play House, we wish to say it is not too late to begin now. The story really has just started and is not so far advanced but that anyone can catch on. Besides you can fol- low the plot by reading the story in the Eagle, back numbers of which can be had for the asking. \Liberty\ is undoubtedly one of the most interesting and exciting photo -play serials ever shown those who have seen the play so far say it can't be beat. Start now and . see this great play every Saturday night it the Play House in Ekalaka. 'lied\ Anderson went over to Baker on Wednesday to hear the train whistle. lb 8110 ID 111111111111101 111111111111111111 111110 1 1 We Just Forgot 4 I Ekalaka Th e Play HouselLam.....--.
