C. 31. SNOW The death of Mrs. Charlotte M. Snow at the Jamestown State Hos-1 t0-witr'::ijdgerwood-Ouerr pital on Thursday. April 11, remov ed one of Wahpeton's oldest and nost familiar figures. Mrs. Snow was born 98 years ago last January in the State of Vermont. Her maiden name was Russell. Her first husband was a Cummings. By that marriage there were three children, all of whom, we are in formed, pre-deceased their mother. Left a widow in middle life, iu due time she became the wife of Mr. Snow'in Wahpeton in late .1881. The home which they later construct ed was one of the prettiest of that time in the town and is still regular ly occupied on the corner of &th Street and Pembina Ave. Mr. Snow was Deputy County Auditor under Mr. Ole K. Ulsajcer, who is worthy of great credit lor his bene ficence toward the Snow family, es peciallyin the lateitdays of Mrs. Snow's helplessnew.*^ Being left,a widow many jreah ago Mrs. 8nbw tnet the world with a cheerful industry which sustained her until her extreme age rendered her quite dependent. She was noted for her brightness, originality and honest dealing. The many friends whom she had made were beautifully loyal to her in her feebleness in the past few years and too much credit cannot be said in their praise for their unfailing tenderness toward her. The funeral was held from the Congregational Church Sunday after noon at 2 o'clock. Mrs. Snow was the second oldest member of that. church in Wahpeton. The sermon preached by Rev. F. E. Stillwell was taken from the last clause of Psalm 39:12. A large number of former friends and neighbors followed the remains to the grave in Fairview cemetery. It is understood that Mrs. Snow's only surviving near-relative is an aged sister in the east. Jesse G. Baker, a well known citizen of Richland County, died sud denly the first part of last week •while visiting his sister, .Mrs. E. A. Aspinwall, thirty miles north of Hinsdale, Montana. Mr. Baker had been a resident of this county since the spring of 1884, and his death was a shock to the entire community. The deceased was born at Lake City, Minn., forty-nine years ago, came to Wahpeton when fifteen years of age and since that time has lived at his home fourt and one-half miles northwest of town. He was a member of the I. O. O. F., who co operated in the burial services. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his departure. Funeral services were held at the home and also at the Methodist Episcopal Church on Monday, April 15. His many friends iand acquaint ances extend sympathy to the bereav ed family.

Manchester of the Home Bakery received a letter this week from her son, who is a member of Company 24th Engineers, A. E. F. in France, under date of March 7 as follows: "Dear Mother: We have arrived safely in France after a somewhat exciting, but novel sea voyage. The first couple of days out was rather rough, so naturally a lot of the fel lows became seasick, but I happened to pull through O. K. which I think was rather lucky, as that sure is an awful feeling. We had lots of amusement on the ship such as amateur vaudeville acts, boxing, etc. "This conntry is certainly a very fine place and very pretty with its quaint old buildings and easy going people. I'd sure like to spend a few months here just sight seeing, justto look at the old places which are hundreds and hun* dredsof years old. /"Cigarettes and tobacco seem to be the scarcest articles over here, so send me a cartoon when you get around to it, rs the little French boys, minus their shoes, run along by the side of us asking for cigarettes. Once in a while we would run across one of them who could speak fairly good English. "We went by a German prison also and all the prisoners looked over the fence at us. They seemed to be happy where they were and we believe that all prisoners feel that way. "We have field stoves now and cook right out in the open, rain or shine, bnt the men manage to get three squares a day and good ones at that. "It is nice and warm over here and all the grass is green and most of the people are working in their gardens. "I can't write you very much, as you know, all our letters are censored, but I will have lots to tell you when I get home. "Be sure and have my paper sent over here, also tell the fellows to write and write often yourself. Well, must close and hope you get this letter soon. With love, Utmer." for the third «'AKI OF THANKS TANS, BLUES and CHECKS, worth up to $7.50 Friday and Saturday, $3.98 THE WONDER STORE, WAHPETON, N. DAK. We, the undersigned, wish to thank those who so kindly assisted us after the death of our husband and father, Jesse J. Baker, and es pecially our friends and neighbors, the Odd Fellows lodge, Modern Brotherhood of America, the school children of Dwight District No. 1, and for the many beautiful floral of ferings.—Mrs. Jesse .J.

Eva Krump purchased Monday from Annie Gillen lots 11 and 12, block 4, of the old townsite of Wah The consideration was $775 A CALL TO SI:I:\ America has been called a nation o! pleasure seekers, but the present war crisis has revealed the fact that we are for the greater part a nation of patriotic citizens, loyal to the heart core. The proof of this is seen in the fact that everyone is offering themselves for service, each one try ing to find in which service he will be the nost useful to his country. I wish to present a door of oppor tunity—a service that holds first rank in its relation to the welfare of our country. This service is the saving r,f the children, thus safe guarding the nation of tomorrow. Three thousand children under five years of age die in the United States each year. This is in times of peace. Half of these deaths are pre ventable. Already the high cost of living due to the present crisis has resulted in an increased death rate. This is shown especially in our large cities where the price of milk has been raised. In the a\alanche sud denness with which the present war came upon our allies, the children were for a time forgotten with disas trous results. It is to protect, our nation from a similar disaster that ttiis present campaign is undertaken. Through the Federal Children's Bureau :tid the Council of National Defense, our government is trying to save the lives of 1(10,000 children this year. Each state is given its quota lives to save. The number of lives that we of North' Dakota are expected to save is 7"n, April *1 will see the inauguration of "Child ren's Year." As a hen gathers her chickens under her wings to protect them when danger is near, so our government would reach out its long arm of protection and care for these little ones. "Children's Year" is to commence with the weighing and measuring of all children under school age—a number of stations for weighing and measuring children will be establish ed in every community. Much of the work of examining the babies will be left to the Doctors and Nurses, but as every child in the state is to be examined and as many of our phy sicians nurses have gone to the front, we will have to call to our help, volunteer workers for many kinds of service. Mothers are expected to take their children to these stations where a duplicate card provided by gtrvemaeat will be filled outr half being tent to the Children's Bureau and the other half being kept by the parents to take the child to the examining station, the card may be filled, out in the home and the duplicate sent to the Children's Bureau. This is but the beginning of the work to be done. Our govern ment, from this time on, is to know its children by name and a watchful care is to be kept over each one of them. The birth of each child must be registered. Let us hope that we may be able in this year to remove the stigma under which we now stand, of ranking with Turkey and China in our registering of births and deaths. To accomplish all this in the short time alloted to tis means unlimited work. We are asking for the enlisUnent in this campaign of the patriotic service of every doctor and nurse, of every woman's or ganization, every citizen and every public official. Do not wait to he asked to help—we are late in getting started in this State and the time is so short.— as soon as you know who the local chairmen in your com munities are, offer your services to them or send your State name Sim, to Mrs. Grh.t!
