The Lieutenant Gives His Parents and
Sisters a Real Genuine Surprise
Christmas Morning.
The M. B. Jones family enjoyed a
regular family reunion on Christinas
dajt. all of the children being home to
enjoy the festivities. The real sur
prise of the day was the visit of Lieut.
Marcus Jones, who is stationed at.
Camp Green. Charlotte, N. C. Lieu
tenant Jones did not tell his parents
of his intended trip home and reached
Denison on an early train Tuesday
morning. Finding the front door un
locked he walked in and discovered all
of the preparations for Christinas, ltib
boils with the names of each member
of the family were strung about the
rooms leading to the various presents

Iowa leads all the states not only in
agriculture but in orders on conser

Fuel Hoard issued their first order on
the control of temperature regulation

post office, fifty-three days prior to
Chicago's order as you will see by the

Fritz Orth, Who Struck Mrs. Patrick
O'Connell, Charged With Viola
tion of Espionage Act.
Officers Ascertain That Orth Was a
Member of British Boat, Whose
name Was Similar to Vaterland
Fritz Orth, who is being held at!
Council Bluffs for alleged violation of
the espionage act, was granted a con
tinuance by United State Commission-1

day morning. Orth stated that
wanted to secure the services of
attornev. His temporary bond was!"8
placed at ?u.000
At the time of the trouble after he
was taken to Council Bluffs the state
ment was made that he was a former
fireman on tlio Vaterland. interned
German ship. Federal officers now say
that this is not true. Their investiga
tions they say show that he was a
member of the crew of a British boat,
whose name was very similar to the
Vaterland, and the wrong impression
probably obtained on that account.
Orth is an alien enemy, having taken
no slepfe in naturalization.
The Review is printing an excellent
likeness of Orth in this issue. The pic
ture was taken at Council Bluffs after
his return there by Sheriff H. J. Cum

say to him after his arrest in Siuux

that he had'trouble with Mrs. Patrick

Stewart Lumber Company Purchases
Stock of W. R. Temple Who Has
Been in Business for 40 Years.
The announcement that \V. It. Tem
ple had disposed of his lumber and
coal business to the Stewart Lumber
company came as a surprise to the
many friends of Mr. Temple. The deal
'iist week and the stock
has been taken over by the Stewart
Lumber company.
Mr. Temple,has been engaged in the
lumber and coal business in Denison
for almost forty years, starting in the
business with the M. Stone Lumber
company-in the early eighties, later be
was connected with the firm of Stone
& Temple for a number of years and
lias since conducted the business at
the old Stone & Temple stand. Mr.
Temple has always been a conserva
tive business man and to be a patron
meant a friend. The Review hopes
that Mr. Temple will decide to con
tinue in some line of business in Deni
son and that his retirement from the
lumber business will not mean liis
leaving Denison.
Save Coal and Win the War J. H.
Patterson has been appointed by J. F.
Deems. United States food adminis
trator, to look after the violators of
the food law and hoarders of'food in
Crawford county temporarily. The
profiteer and hoarder had better keep
his eagle eye on Patterson, and run
to cover when hoves in sight. Patter
son insists that 90 per cent of the peo
ple are the common people and they
are the. ones that are suffering most
trom the l^oflteer and hoarder ot foods,
"Sht and-the Review believes1car
tliat. a man who will go into a man's
coal bin and remove, the coal he has
received over the amount of the fed
eral order will be a^le to handle the
food, situation in this county. Patter
son proposes to see that the people are
not charged more than the law allows
for flour and in fact all foodstuffs, and
will be hot on the trail Of anyone who
is holding the people up.
The Review this week is being is
sued on the regular publication day,
although all the employees enjoyed
Christmas at home with their families.
The paper would have been more com
plete had it been delayed until Thurs
day, but we felt that the subscribers
would prefer to revive it on the reg
ular day.

Miss Pearl Gary, the First Young
Lady From Crawford to Go to
France Given a Purse.
One Hundred Denison Friends Meet
Miss Gary at Northwestern Sta
tion and Say Goodbye.
Aliss Pearl Gary passed through
Denison Monday evening over the
Northwestern with twenty other Red
Cross nurses, who are members of
Unit K, enroute from Council Bluffs
to lOllis Island. N. Y„ from which
place thev will sail in the near future
for service with the American army
in France. Miss Gary, wiio has made
her home in Denison with her father,
received word Sunday that fhe nurses
c.f Unit would leave Council Bluffs
Monday evening and was ordered to
report there. She left Denison Mon
day morning 'for the Bluffs.
Nearly a hundred Denison folks
gathered at the Northwestern station
Christinas evening to bid Miss Gary
goodbye and god speed, and as the
8:16 train pulled into the depot they
gave a rousing cheer for the plucky
Denison i'»ung lady who is the first
from Crawford county to go abroad as
a Red Cross nurse. Miss Gary came
to the platform of the special car,
where she clasped the hands of all.
She was presented with an envelope
containing $50 in gold, which was a
parting gift from her friends and neigh
the best trained nurses in this sec
tion of the state. She has a host of
friends in Donison and vicinity who
wish her the best of success and a
safe return.
The Review had hoped to print in
this issue a picture of Miss Gary, but
the plate did not arrive from the en
gravers. This will be printed in the
next issue.
Many Denison Homes Gladdened Ow
ing to Presence of Soldier Boys
Christmas—Partial List.
Many Crawford county families were
able to thoroughly enjoy Christmas be
cause of the return of boys from the
training camps to spend the holidays
with the home folks. In Denison there
were many happy firesides and while
the visits of the soldier boys are of
short duration they are enjoyed to the
utmost. Parents and relatives of the
boys in the service read with regret
last week the order made by the gov
ernment that soldiers would not be per
mitted to ride on the railroads during
the holidays. Many of the boys, how
ever. were able to secure furloughs and
those at Camp Dodge took the intcrur
ban to Boone and had relatives or
friends drive them t'roiii there to Den
ison in autos.
The Review has not been able to se
euro a complete list of those from the
camps who were home on furlough, but
our attention has been called to the

No one could say that it was a sad
parting. All of the nurses in the unit
seemed to be in the best of spirits.
Some one in. the crowd on the plat
form shouted. "Pearl, be sure and bring
back the kaiser." Miss Gary,' in' a
clear sharp voice, replied, "We will Much of the correspondence is onuf-

Miss Gary joined Unit last May
when the unit was organized by Dr.
Donald Macrae. Since then she has
-been patiently waiting to be called
into service^and has spent most of
her time here in Denison with her
father, A. J. Gary. Miss Gary was
born and reared 'in Denison and re

schools here, graduating from the
high school with honors. She took a
course of nursing in one of the big
hospitals of Chicago and among phys
