Fourteen Dehison men who had en
listed in Company 2d Iowa Infantry
have made another advance step to
wards the war area and before many
months will be exchanging hand gre
nades with Hans and Fritz in the
trenches in northern France or Bel
gium. Under orders Issued by the
war department last week a division
of national guard troops will be dis-'
patched to France, which will include
troops from twenty-six states and the
District of Columbia.
Here in Iowa a portion of the men
in each company were notified to
mobilize at the state fair grounds in
Des Moines and when the word reach
ed Company Bat Ida Grove that some
G9 men were to be furnished from that
company there was a grand rush by
the men to be Included in the num
ber. There was not a single man in
the company but what wanted to go
and Captain. Lindsey had a difficult
matter on his hands. It' was decided
to All the quota from company by
Men Given Numbers.
Each man in the company was giv
en a number and the required num
bers were drawn from a hat to decide
who was to go. Fourteen of the Den
ison boys held the lucky numbers. To
say the other Denison boys were dis
appointed would be putting it miltl
ly. They begged and entreated their
nWfe fortunate comrades to give up
.7 ftotas and let tlieni go in their sTead,
bttl not. a man waivered. The rHsult
drawing wa3 announced Sat
urday morning at breakfast and from
all reports there waT quite a scene in
the mess hall. Di3lies were flying

and there wore loud hurrahs from the
lucky ones.
Now in Camp at Des Moines.
The men left Ida Grove Monday for
Des Moines, where th*y are encamped
at the state fair grour.d. From there
they will go to Minccla, Long Island,
to prepare for embarkation to France.
It Is not known when the men will
leave Des Moines for the east, but it
will probably be in lie near future.
No cantonment camp will be con
structed at Mineola as this place has
been designated as a mobilization
point rather than a training camp
The guardsmen arj known as the
"rainbow division." and wiH get their
training in France, where they will
have their first smell of gun. powder

More Recruits for Company B.
Company B, so the Review is ad
vised, will rccruit up to its former
strength of 150 meu to replace the
ones who are now mobilized at Des
Moines. Every abla bodied man is
eligible for membership to Company
B, excepting those who have been
notified to appear for examination in
the draft. Men who way be called in
the second and third drafts will be
It is to be regretted that Company
is split up for the men had hoped

cases brother were separated.
Alien' Lyon Enlisted in the Aviation
Service and is-Now Stationed at
Fort Logan, Colo.
Denison now has three men in the
aviation service. Leslie Gulick and
William Rath are now located at Ft.
Sam Houston, Texas, where they are
in training. The last one to enlist in
this service Is Allen Lyon, son of Mr.
Geo. Lyon.
Allen Lyon left Denison last Thurs
day and made application in Omaha,
where he passed the necessary physi
cal examination. From there he was
sent to Ft. Logan, Colo., where he was
further examined and passed with
flying colors.
He will undoubtedly be sent to the
training camp in Texas for training.
Lieut. Robt. VanBoskirk, of Ida
Grove was in Denison the first of
the week calling on acquaintences.
He was a member of Co. B., and this
spring entered the officers' reserve,
corps at Ft. Snelling, Minn., and re
ceived a commission. We understand
that he has been ordered to camp

Well Known Merchantile Firm Takes
Lease on 16th Street Omaha
Property for Third Store.
New Store Will Be Located in New
First National Bank Building at
16th and Farnum
Geo. Menagh and oompany have
leased space in the new First Na
tional Bank buildin? on lGth street
in Omaha and will open up a new
store at this excellent location the
fore part of next month. The Men
aghs will then have three stores in
operation, the combined business of
which will run upwa~1s of a half mil
lion dollars.
Since opening up their store on
Farnum street, ayled The House of
Monagh, their business has been in
creasing 'by leaps and bounds, until
it became necessary for them to make
arrangements to handle their increas
ed patronage. After considerable
study of the situation, they came to
conclusion it would be best to open
a branch store and so leased space
in the First National Bank building
on 16th street, which is in the heart
of the shopping district of Omaha,
and considered one of the best lo
cations for a ladies' wearing apparel
store in tin city. Of course, the ren
tal is high and will run into the thous
ands of dollars each year. This new
•store will be conducted under the
name of the House of Menagh Annex.
Mr. James Menagh, manager of the
Denison store, infoims the Review
that the Menagh Annex will feature
medium priced women's garments,
while the Farnum street store will be
devoted to higher priced merchan
dise. With the tnree stores, the
Menaghs are now able to go to the
eastern markets and purchase goods
in quantities and at rices as low as
the big department stores of the cities
and in many instances, even cheaper
than they will be able to buy goods.
The Menaghs are to be congratu
lated upon their successful career
in the merchandise business and the
people of Denison and community
will rejoice with them in their suc

FOREWORD: The great historian, Froude, said that the history of the world could be written from a record of women's
dress. It is true that the spirit of events is reflected in her costume, and at no time has she had such a part in events as now. Her
request for real value-giving, intrinsic quality in what she buys is greater than ever. She insists upon the enduring things—The
plausible and seeming things-Imitations, slighted workmanship, unworthy materials and disguises, all fall away. Her every de
mand for satisfaction c«n., fee, realized by a visit to our store Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week. And the price is much
less than you would expect. We suggest an early inspection of our new fall stocks. Early choosers will benefit greatly.

Parts of Crawford County Enjoy a
Copious Rain on Tuesday—Dam
age North and East of Here
A heavy rain storm visited various
sections of Crawford county Tuesday
afternoon, but Denis.'m escaped with
only a shower which was not enough
to hardly settle the dust.
At Vail the storm was particularly
severe and considerable damage is re
ported,there. The water was high on
the main street and flooded many of
the basements and damaged the gas
plant to a great extent.
Mr. Mclmtosli, superintendent of
the municipal light plant of Denison,
in company with T. V. Walker, were
in Vail this morning conferring with
Mr. Ben Olson, president of the Com
mercial club, Maurice O'Connor, may
or, and bankers and leading business
men \n regard to electric current.
They proposed to tho Vail business
men that they erect a line from Vail
to Denison and furnish current from
Denison's plant. The Vail business
men were most favorable to the prop
osition and it is possible that some
action will be taken on the matter in
the near future.
Damage is reported both north and
west of Denison and from reports
reaching the Review office today it
was the heaviest fall of rain this
season. Most of the small grain is
stacked, so there will be little dam
age to it.
City of Denison Advertises House
Wiring, for One Month in Order
to Clean Up on Wire.
September 1st to 30th will be ob
served in Denison as "Wire Your
House Month." During the month of
September the Denison electrical de
partment will make an effort to wire
every home in the city for electric
lights and in order to do this they are
offering to do the work at a price and
terms which no one can afford to let
slip by. Mr. Mcintosh, the superin
tendent, informs the Review that the
municipal light plant lias great quan
tities of wire and supplies for doing
this work on hand that was purchased
before the present high prices. Inas
much as the city is not engaging in
the contract work they are anxious to
move this material and as an induce
ment to have property owners wire
for electricity will sell it' at a great
saving. People' who t'o not now have
electricity in their homes should take
the matter up with I«fr. Mcintosh at

Cars Run in Ditches and Off Bridges
But No Injuries Reported—Cars
Badly Damaged
Will Rollins' Car Slides Into Ditch
While Mr. Rollins Attempts to
Rescue Another Car
Sunday was a hoodo day for many
drivers of automobiles.and many acci
dents have been reported but for
tunately there were no injuries. Most
of the accidents were caused by care
less driving.
A heavy touring car crashed into an
iron bridge three miles north of Deni
son on the Deloit road and had It not
been for the heavy iron railing the
machine would have landed in the
creek several feet below. The driver
of this machine struck the railing on
the east side of the bridge first and
Mr. Bouslaugh, who happened along
with his truck, helped pull the car
back onto the road. The driver at
tempted again to cross over the
bridge and drove his machine into the
railing on the left side. The left
front wheel crashed through the
guard rails of the bridge and it was a
wonder that the car did nbt topple
over in the creek. The driver was
not Injured although bis machine was
badly damaged.
Misses Lucile Rollins and. Maurine
Hamley figured in an auto acicdent
Sunday evening on the Lincoln High
way down near the Eggers school•»
house on the road to Arion. In com
pany with Dan Redenbaugh, and sis
ter Pearl, of Storm Lake, and John
Marloof, they went for a drive.. When
at the top of the hill east of the Eg
gers school, they undertook to change
drivers and before the new .driver
had time to take the wheel, the car
plunged into a six foot ditch alongside
a culvert landing on its side For
tunately none of the occupants were
injured. Miss Rollins phoned her
father, Mr. W. C. Rollins, to come out
after them, and he and his wife has
tened to the scene of the accident.
They stopped their car in front of the
ditch, and while they were talking to
the young folks, their car slid on down
the grade and landed in the ditch on
top of the other one. The machine
was pulled out undamaged, however.,'
