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.

it Ii 4 i s • Zbt Vol. 9, NO. 24. $2.00 Per Year _ ttforb STANFORD, FERGUS COUNTY, New Variety of Slacker Pound The painful fats is coining to light that many people, who do not need the pones' are ensiling in their War Savings Stamps which they bought during the last drive. Under the preSSilre of the soliciting emmuittee these people purehased stamps in or- der to pretend they were back- ing the government. with tbe sec- ret idea that they could cash them in slimily, thus retaining the false credit that they were helping the government end in no on a ii n e r ineonveniencing themselves. This war has developed anum- bee of kinds of slackers, a choice variety of which are the persona and business houses who bhught, the limit. of War Savings Stanton to get their names in the papers as members of the Limit Club, and have since cashed in their stamps and got their money back. You ask are their slackers of this kind ii) Montana? We bow our heads with shame and answer ther ease a number of them. Such action is not clever, it is very crude. The postoffices throughout the state furnish the County Directors and the State Direetor with \limos at inter- vals of all stamps cashed, and it is an easy matter for those ac- quainted with the people of the various towns to see at a glance the reasons why the stamps are cashed. , The cashing of stamps in eases refered to above is simply a very clumsy attempt at camouflaged patriotism. These people are within just and severe criticism. It is the essence of hypocraey. It is legitimate, but it emits an odor of decayed patriotism. Can a man do this and then look a wounded soldier, in the eye with- ont *Ma hes4). firing with r e . Morse? He will then realize that he did all he could to stab that soldier boy in the back at a time is when his aid was moist needed. Will the friends and relatives of the soldier boy patronize the bus- iness house that does this con - temptable trick? We leave it to them to answer. We are sure no firm in Stanford would dream of committing such an outrage against common decency. It is shameful and infamous prac- tice meriting the scorn of all true Americans.

MONTANA POSTMASTERS AqL DOING THEIR BIT To all post masters:—May take this means of thanking you for your assistance in securing recruits for the United States Marine 1'orps. The showing made by the postmasters during the month of July was a most ex- cellent one. Our month is from I June 21 to July' 20 and is called! the month of July. For your information you are informed that the postmasters in the District of Montana, which eomprisese the State of Montana and that part of Wyoming and Idaho noVth of the 44th parallel, have secured more applicants during the month than any other postmasters in any state in the United States. Further, they have seested more men than the pontmastera in the combined states of California, Was,hington, Oregon, Utah, New Mexico, Nev- ada, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, and that part of Idaho mid Wy- oming sonth of the 44th 'parallel. This information I am giving to the Associated Press in order that you May be given due credit for your efforts, and that the country May know just what the postmastert4 of the Montana Dis- trict are doing to halt the Huns. In conclusion may I again thank you for your co-operation in this patriotic work. Hoping you are successful in the futtre as you have been in the past, I am, very truly yours, CHAS. GORKUML 2nd Lieut. in charge of the Mon- tana District. Every time you stick a Thrift or War Savings Stamp on your card you are mailing money to yourself to be received later with interest. Cashing in these stamps is going to be better than \get- ting money from' home,\ for with the money comes the reminder that you contributed to the great victory which then will have been completely won.

When this work was started tke sup- plies consisted mainly of bread, made . in and shipped from Berne and supplementary packages of food shipped from time to time from London, through the Brit- ish Red Cross. . The business of caring for our A soners is now organized on a more practical basis. The Amer- ican Red Cross has leased a large warehouse at Berne and it is in the hands of an efficient organi- zation. The War Department has shipped to this warehouse food and clothing for military prisoners. The naval prisoners are furnished with food and olothing by the America - II Red Cross, and an accounting of the COO of these supplies is given to the Navy Department, which in turn reimburses the Red Cross for the expenditure made. In the ease of civilian prisoners, many of whom were taken from .torpedoed ships, food and cloth- ing is supplied .'entirely by the 'Red Cross. As soon as a man is reported oficially as a prisoner of war, it 20 pound parcel 9f nurishing food is sent him each week. as well as porper clothing, certain luxuries, toilet articles `and to- bacco. The surgeon general's depart- ment of the United States gov- eminent' as, in connection with the Amen e an Red Cross, worked out an invalid ration which is is- sued by the gerernthent and the Red Cross for shipment to pris- oners of war whoo are reported as being ill. At the present Hine there is sufficient food at the warehouse in Berne, or in transit, to supply 10,000 prisoners.; for a period of six months. It, is earnestly 1 soped that. they are not going to need this amount, but it is well to be prepared. In order to meet i'Ve'ry emergency, a similar warehouse has DOW been leased at Copenha- gen, DentilaSk. It will contain 5,000 rations and will be, pre- pared, in an emergency, to take up the work of prisoners relief at 'a Moment's notice. As a fur- ther safeguard, a supply of food and clothing is stored ill France. It moy be seen from the above account that an organization has been .established which through the generousity of the United States govermnent and of the American people ,as represented by the American Red Cross. is in ti position to take peeper care of all Ammiwan prisoners. The Bureau of American Pris- (merit' Relief in this (sondes. as well as the Division of Allied Prisoners Relief, is located at the ArneAcan Red Cross bead- tnuirters at Washington, I). C.
