GEORGE CLAGGETT STRUCK
OVER HEAD AND ROBBED
To be struck in the head with a rock
and knocked unconscious was the fate'
of George Claggett, of Yucca, when he
was being shown to a rooming house
by two negroes in Venice, last Monday
evening. While unconsciojs Clapgeit
claims to have been relieved of $40 in
cash and a draft for $150. Sam FM
wards and Walter Scott, negroes, were
arrested and charged with the crime
When their room was searched only
40 cents was found, but a miscellan
eous lot of other stuff was in the
room. It is possible that Claggett
had that amount of money on him, al
though he had only a small pension
to live on. Claggett has lived at
Yucca for many years. But has n"v
er been an active miner. He is a
Union veteran of the civil war.
L. E. Hammer and A. E. Runell,
of Phoenix were visitors here last Friday.

Here and Over There
FROM COAST TRIP
For full 25 years in fact since her
wedding day-had Mrs. Blank, a prom
inent Red Cross worker of the Pacific
Division, kept that vase. Not always
on view. After the first) five years
is occupied various nooks and cran
nies about the house and made the
family uncomfortable at housecleaning
time. Finally Mrs. Blank decided that
the oldest inhabitant .had forgotten it
and gave it to the Red Cross Shop.
Bl-1-l-l-ing! went the telephone bell
that evening. "By the way, my
Dear. I saw a vase from your house at
the Shop. How did I know) it? Why
I gave it to you myself as a wedding
eift 25 vears asro." This experience
was something of a jolt, but the plucky
Salvage and Shop Chairman just
lausrhs at it and has used it to over
come certain little prejudices that are
unavoidable in the small town.
"Turn Trash into Cas.i" the sal
vage Bureau slogan appealed to E.
T. Cutter, Division Supt, Associated
Press. The head office in San Francis
co' is conserving ' typewriter ribbon
spools and Supt. Cutter has suggested
that all other office in the Western
Division do likewise. A Red Cross
Chapter recently sold 6,000 spools at
1 1-2 cents apiece.
At the Front
Red Cross men did not stop their
work as long as fighting continued on
the battle of St. Mihiel, but as it pro
gressed they moved ahead with the
troops and got close up to the lines
before the offensive began. Hot drinks
were sent to the front lines in the am
bulances that went after wounded. At
one point between daylight and nine
P. M., 180 gallons of hot chocolate
were served to fighters, and 120 gal
lons at another point.
In the crowd that waited for the
second show at a San' Francisco Mov
ie House was a soldier with a Red
Cross button pinned on an empty
sleeve. "I see you lost an arm" said
a sympathetic bystander. "No I
only gave an arm" replied the soldier.
The silence that fell pn the careless
crowd was that of a chastening spirit"
and' one could almost hear its accus
ing' question ""What have YOU
The London Chapter, American Red
Cross, has founded, the American
Nurses' Club at 42 Grosvenor Place,
London, which will be nurses head
quarters in England. Rooms are rent
ed to members at 50 cents per night.
If you are a member of the Red
Cross, then you automatically become
a member of the "Eating Club" which
has over 2,000 services per month) to
its credit. This is none other than
the Canteen. The prime object of
the Canteen service is to be a visable
reminder to the soldier or sailor that
"somebody cares." No distinction is
made as to color or nationality. Am
erica and her Allies that is sufficient.

THE TASK IN ENGLAND
Every fortnight some 600 girls of
the Y. A. A. C. find themselves in one
of the London barracks preparatory to
being sent to the front in France.
These girls are almost always stran
gers to each other and the Y. A. A. C.
administrators in England has asked
the Y. W. C. A. to organize evening
recreations for them. A great hut has
been built for this purpose by the Y.
W. C. A. war committee.
H. Simmond of the Oatman Picture
Theatre at that place was a visitor
to Kingman Friday last.
W. L. Peters was here last week
attending to the wants of the consum
ers of bacon, butter, ham and eggs.
T. A. Graves is spending a few days
here from Chloride last Friday.
After having made a trip from Ak-
lon, Ohio, to San Francisco with air-
i plane tires for the government, a
'Packard and White truck, accompanied
'by a pilot car arrived in Kingman
(Wednesday night, oi the return trip,
The outfit is owned by the Goodyear
tire people, and the trip was made
i west over the Lincoln highway to dem
onstrate their new pneumatic truck
tire. The party is in charge of M. D.
Scott, and there are four truck drivers
who drive the big cars in relays of six
hours each. The party is headed for
' Phoenix, where the Goodyear company
has a 35,000 acre cotton plantation,
and where the trucks will be loaded
'with baled cotton for the return trip to
The two trucks are two of seven
that have been operated the past year
between Akron and Boston. These
cars are equipped with pneumatic tires
which are claimed to be far superior
to tiie solid tires heretofore used on
all trucks. The trip was made with
out accident, although the roads were
very rough in many sections, especial
ly between Salt Lake and Ely, and be
tween Needles and Yucca.
HAVE NARROW ESCAPE
Last Sunda- F ank Pastro, driving
his own car and accompanied by Mr.
James and Tom Bales, had a narrow
escape from death when the brakes
failed to hold coming down Stockton
Hill. At the summit Pastro started
jdown in high gear and as he reached
the heavy grade the car got beyond
control and rolled down the narrow
road at constantly accelerating speed.
At the last curve Bales and James
jumped and escaped with slight injur
ies. Pastro remained in the car,
which'was thiown violently against a
projecting rock at the side of the road
breaking a wheal and bringing the car
to a standstill. The car was not
otherwise damaged. The Stockton
Hill grade is over 20 per cent and the
fellow who tries to drive it without
control of his car is sure to come to
One of the tasks which all Y. W.
C. A. workers in Prance near the front
do regularly is to go to the nearest
town with long lists and do shopping
for the nurses on duty in the hospitals
near them. If it were not for the Y. W.
girls nurses would either have to leave
their posts of duty or do without for
no mere man could possibly do this
