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.

The price that must be paid to pro- tect our institutions from - the ruth- less ambition of, he Huns has been brought home to the people of this vicinity by the death of Henry Hei- man, our first real contribution to ,the cause. Our part heretofore has consilled mainlj of subscriptions to Liberty loans and . contributions to. war activities.that affected only our pocketbooks.. We have hardly been affected by the toll of human lives that iflust also be taken. We could not have a full realization of what this sacrifice means until One of our own boys was counted among the num- ber who have laid dawn their lives in the struggle. We sa,w him go out last fall with the other' young men, smiling as he said goodbye to • his friends. He went with the forestry regiment where his experience would enable him to be of the greatest service. It was not a job that had its rnvard in the glory of batfid7 but \one that brought .lots of hard and tedious la- bor—work_thar makes it possible for others to win their honor crosses. And now we learn that he has becotne a victim to disease while serving his country and and has been laid to rest beneath the soil . of France. We commence to realize that in the coming months we are going to he asked to . make further sacrifices of our young men, and now understand that the sacrifies of mon- ey and the slight inconveniences en- __ - tailed are as nothing. We would gladly sacrifice all we possess, save the ideals for which we are fighting if all of the boys could be returned unharmed. Sunday afternoon the white 'star above Henry Hilman's name will be replaced by ,a gold star with all the reverenee and respect that can le paid hint. On this occasion, the im- mortal words of Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg address seem pe- culiarly fitting, where he says: - \It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated to the -unfinished work they have thus far so nobly advanc- ed. It is rather for us to be here dcdicated to the great task remaining before ns—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to the cause for . which they gave 'the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that the nation shall under God have a new birth of freedom and that gov- ernment Of the people, by the peo- ple and for the people shall not per- ish from the earth.\ Rs Ina WAS THE PETITION SUF- FICIENT? By their refusal to stand for a re- view of the county seat eemoval pe- tition by the district court, after the decision on the legal points had been rendered against them, the propon- ents have certainly left a strong sus- picion that they were afraid to put it to the test and that they are try- ing to get by without the requisiti number of names. No matter what the explanation of their course by the legal advisers, the feelint will al- ways exist that they were trying to run through on a \whizzer.\ By refusing to permit the court to examine into the facts and ap- pealing to the supreme court on the law alone, they have forestalled the efforts of 'the opponents to have the names passed upon officially a sec- ond time. Either the judgment of the lower court, which was entered by default, will stand or their con- tention that the decision of the com- missioners was final will be siistain'- cd and will bar further examination, .it Seems incredible that the op- ponents of a change of counts , scat should be denied the right of appeal from the decision of the commis- sioners. It is no secret that at the time, the petition was declared suf- ficient, all three members of the hoard were strongly in favor of the proposed change, and no matter how honest they may have tried to be in examining it, their decision was bound to be influenced to sonle ex- tent by their personal interest!' No sane roan will submit hi., in- terests in any matter where a contro- versy arises to those who are openly against him, and the steadfast re- fusal of the Plains people to permit a disinterested body, or a body where the interests are at least evenly di- vided, to decide the merits of the petition makes it appear in a very bad light. They objected to giving the' op- ponents an opportunity to examine it before the board passed on it; they object to having the court exantine it now. The natural supposition is, therefore, that it will not bear ex- amination:\ THE SOLDIER'S CHANCES Great as the- danger `and large as the losses in the 'aggregate, the in- dividual soldier has plenty of chances af coming out of the war unscathed, or at least not badly injured'. Based on the mortality statistics of the allied armies, a soldier's' chances are as follows: Twenty-nine chances of coming home, to one chance of being killed Forty-nine chances of recovering from wounds to one chance of dying from the& One chance in five huddred of los- ing a limb. Will live five years longer because of the physical training, is freer from disease in the army than in civil life, and has better medical care at the .front than at home. In other wars from ten to fifteen men died from disease to one front bullets in thishvar one man dies from disease to every ten from bullets. ; The events of the past year give rise to the belief that the God whom the Germans like to claim as a part- ner has gone back on them. The big drive on the western front, has been turned into a \victorous\ re- treat; the Austrian drive had a simi- lar result, and now the Turks and Bulgarians are experiencing difficul- ties that point to a dissolution of the partnership. Xerhaps their God is one of those old-fashioned brass images like--the....heathen used to depend upon. . NM Something is wrong when agita- tation for a strike out of sympathy for the convicted I. W. W. leaders can be carried on in Butte under the nose of the federal attorney without more serious efforts being exerted to put a stop to it. Senator Walsh needs to ook into the action of the man he a sponser for and see that something s done, or loyal voters will surely deaert•him this fall. A man is known by the company he keeps. HS Ilat General orders issued to kill on the spot any soldier who in time of bat- tle urges surrender, will make it ex- ceedingly dangerous for an enemy in stolen uniform 'to try to create a panic, as has been attempted. The order applies to any per4n,_ stranger or friend, officer or private, \in the American army. The friends of the boys in France will have little regard for . o . r patience with anyone who interferes with the production of materials needed by our soldiers to perform the task of extinguishing Huns and distinguish- ing themselves. 1111 Your Uncle Samuel, while very democratic in his tastes, is not so careless of his reputation as to be willirg to hobnob with aristocratic cutthroats. Hence his objection to being a Party to the proposed peace discussion.

'IN omen of every race • widow who launders seventeen bas- kets of wash a week and every night thanks God for having put pity into ,the hearts of , women. To her came one day a letter from her only son. He was then at Om Funston, learning to be a soldier. The let- ter begged her to come and see him before he was sent to France. The mother opened the tin bank in which the had been hoarding her dimes ana quarters against this day. The money was scarcely enough. Nevertheless she started. She walked the first eighteen miles. Then her strength gave out. and she took a train. She did not know that visitors to Camp Funston stay in Junction City, eleven miles away. So she got off the train at Fort Rilby r . An officer set her right and she reached Junc- tion City after dark. Somehow she found a rooming -house. Some on,. th3re stole five dollars from her-- five of the precious dollars she had earned Over the wash tub and saved by walking. Terror-stricken, she crept out of the house when no one waff looking. Later in the night a soldier found her trembling in the. street. and took her to the rooms of the Young Wom- en's Christian Association, rooms which the War Work Council had opened as a clearing -house for, trou- bles. The poor frigkl,teld , woman was put to bed, but she was too miserable to sleep. The matron got up at daybreak, built a fire, and com- forted her. The son's commanding officer was reached by telephone early in the morning, and the boy came to his mother on the first trol- ley -car he could catch. The two spent long, low -voiced hours together, perhaps the last hours they will have this side of heaven. ery moment was as pre- cious as a month had been last year. The old lady had still one pretrent worry. The boy's bad cold might turn into pneumonia if she left him. B she had not money enough to star another night and buy a ticket home. When the matron told her that her bed was free, she broke down and cried and cried. \I did not know there was so much pity left in the world,\ she sobbed. She stayed till her boy's cold was better. Then she went back to her seventeen washings and her memo- ries. Because of the certainty of lust Such cases as this was Governmental sanction given to the activities of the War Work Cornell of the Y. NV. C. A.' From the Pacific to the Alantic its field extends. Every state in the Union has its members. Urgent ap- peals for help are its cause and its Mrs. Davison and creed are its wards. The %ilk of the War Work Council is tre.nend- ous. When the United States entered the great war the. Young Women's \Th. istn Association was, as always, working among women. With the call to new duties its members did not abandon their old responsibilities. The War Work Council was formed as an emergency measure to take care of the women who were caught in s 'aolne of the mazes of war, just as the parent organization has taken Care Of them through many years of peace. The varied activities decided upon by the War Work Council fol- low closely the needs of the differ- ent communities of the country. Sec- retaries trained in the methods of the organization were sent out broadcast. They were instructed to report to the National Board of the Young Women's Christian Associa- tions In New York the lines of work which could be best followed in the various localities. These secretaries work in close cooperation with min- isters, women's clubs, chambers of commerce, churches, military officials, and charitable societies. The rec- ord of a day's doings of a secretary reads like a novel, an economic treatise, and a psychological essay all compressed into a line -a -day entry. s A secretary sent out by the War Work Council must be equal to any emergency. Miss Lillian Hull at Chil- licothe, close by Camp Sherman, hut- rying along the street at nightfall came upon a forlorn couple. A Fin- nish soldier had found a job for hie wife, so that she might come on from Cleveland. When she arrived she was refused the place because 3he spoke no English. Their money had been all spent on the railroad fare, and the soldier was due back at Camp. The situation was bad. Thanks to Miss Hull a Chillicothian housewife now has an industrious Ind grateful domestic, a soldier is happy, and a soldier's wife is safe. Army folks often benefit even more Meetly from the secretaries' work. In Bremerton, Washington. a secre- ary was accosted on the street by a 3ailor, and he - May asked. \Surely she replied with mature understanding and intuition. \What is the matter? Are you homesick?\ The lad's story came out with a rush. Yes, he was honiesick, an hopelessly, despairingly heartsick that he was on the verge of desertints, But this woman gave him genuine sympathy and encouragement. Soi: saved him to his country. From north, south, east and west these pioneer secretaries sent it, their reports. The appalling size or the undertaking was revealed to the War Work Council. Systematization of the work was the first step. Out of the multitudinous phases certain lines of work were revealed. (Continued She was a slender woman, had mistasen her for a girl.
