UNITED IB WUBK CAMPAIGN Remember That America’s Task In theWar Is Not Done Un til Her Men Come Home Again When you give to the United War Work Campaign you give to your own flesh and blood and are strength ening the pulse beats of the national heart. Because there is talk of an armistice and peace, it must not be understood that there is no further need for sacrifice on the part of the home-folks of America. Peace is not yet in sight, and even if it were to be declared to-day, it would mean months and maybe years before the demobilization of our army would be complete. And until that time there is a big necessity for the care of the men in uniform. As Director Mott states it “ it is up to us to see that the period of demobilization does not become a period of demoralization.” It took two years to complete the demobilization of the troops after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, and it took the United States SIX TEEN months to complete the de mobilization of the United States troops at the close of the Spanish American War. Think then of what it; will mean and the time it will take to handle the millions of men now in service as compared with the thous ands in the war of 1898-9. These men in khaki, the finest blood of our country, and the com ing rulers of this land, will find them selves with time on their hands and nothing to do during this period of waiting. If we do not give to these seven organizations who are inter ested in the welfare of these men, who is going to care for them, keep them out of temptations such as be fall idle, waiting men? The work undertaken by the organizations rep resented in this united drive cover every passible want, mental, moral and social. It provides clefcn and wholesome surroundings and pleas ures; it furnishes food, books, teach ers and entertainers. To occupy all the time of our men is going to cost much more than it has to help them in fragments of their time. It is up to the American people to subscribe generously in grateful recognition of the marvelous service rendered by our men. and with the firm purpose to make the period of demobilization not a period of physical, mental and moral de terioration and weakening but rather a period of character building of growth in useful knowledge, work ing efficiency and of preparation for assuming larger responsibilities as citizens on their return home. On account of the sickness in the community, no entertainments can be given whereby funds can be re lized at this time; for the same rea son, no house to house canvass can be made; as a consequence the Coun cil of Defense has taken it upon it self to guarantee that the county’s quota will be raised before time for the last pledge installment to be paid. That will give the county a_ little longer time in which to raise the funds necessary and not leave us behind when the others have gone “over the toD.’’ Send In All You Can Spare.

A table published on the first page of to-day’s Sentinel gives the offi cial result of this canvass, with the exception of the total vote given Martin J. Scanlan, Socialist candi date for United States Senator; W. H. Cordill, Socialist candidate for Congress; and C. H. Rand for State Senator of Eureka County. Through corrected errors in checking these candidates should be given the fol lowing total vote received in Eureka County: Mr. Scanlan 7 votes, Mr. Cordill 7 votes, and Mr. Rand 302 votes. lhe canvass made by the Board showed that there were but few minor changes made in the returns from the different precincts as pub lished in last week’s Sentinel, and all the County and Township officials announced as then elected have been ordered to receive their certi ficates of election.

OUR PERCE CELEBRATION Joyful Demonstration Entered Into by All When Informed of the Good News News of the signing of the Allies' armistice terms by the Germans was received in Eureka about noon Mon day. J. E. Sexton telephoned the message here from Palisade and it was posted on the court house bul letin board. The spirit of rejoicing at once took possession of the people and their feelings were given vent by the gen eral ringing of all the bells in town; salutes were fired on the mountain side; all the China bombs in town were purchased and exploded, and vociferous and continued cheers went up from the assembled people. All Ruby Hill came down and participa ted in the joyous occasion. The hol iday spirit pervaded, for a time busi ness was generally suspended, and the peace celebration in Eureka, not withstanding the restriction against indoor gatherings, would have brought joy to our boys “over there,” as it did to the hearts of those at home here. CHARLOTTE LAIRdIauTtO REST Succumbs to Attack of Influenza Near Cortez and Is Brought Home For Burial The remains of Miss Charlotte Holder Laird, whose death of influ enza at the Maurice Isaac ranch near Cortez, Eureka County, was an nounced in last week’s Sentinel, were brought into Eureka Sunday for burial and the funeral was held that afternoon. The interment was in the Masonic cemetery and private owing to the contagious nature of the disease from which the young lady died, and only the family and necessary assistants were present. N. P. Morgan officiated, reading the Episcopal service, the deceased be ing christened in and an attendant of this church. Miss Laird was a most promising young lady, of a robust constitution and seemingly perfect health. She graduated from the Eureka County High School with the class of 1917, and from the County Normal in 1918. She was teaching her first term of school at Fye Canyon district when stricken with influenza, followed by pneumonia, which caused her pass ing. The deceased will long be re membered by her classmates and as sociates for she was full of wit and humor and had the happy faculty of turning the current happenings in every day life into this vein. In the family she will be sorely missed, for she was the life of the home circle. She possessed the gift of drawing, and also of writing verse in a humor ous way—winning a prize in her last year in the High School in a contest for the best humorous story. The deceased was the second eld est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Abram Laird of Eureka, was born and raised here, and besides her parents is sur vived by four brothers and two sis ters. She was aged 20 years, 3 months and 3 days.

THE INFLUENZA SITUATION Bat One New Case Reported in Eureka County Daring Week, But Restrictions Continue In Effect Owing to Close Proximity of New Cases of The Disease The influenza situation in Eureka County is thought to have greatly improved during the week. So far a case has not developed in the town of Eureka, and but one new case in the county—that of Ralph Ferguson near Tonkin—has been reported to the Health Officer. All the cases re ported in the north end of the coun ty are recovering, and in other por tions of the county the disease seems to be under control. Several cases developed last week at Hamilton, White Pine County, about 40 miles southeast of Eureka, and nearly all the people there have been down with the disease. One death, that of John Ghiradella, is reported. Carl Muir reported over the telephone to W. H. Russell at the Moorman ranch Thursday night that all the Hamilton cases were then doing nicely. At the meeting of the County Council of Defense Thursdav even ing the matter of reopening the schools throughout the county and lifting the ban against the assemb lingof people together in public places was discussed. It was generally thought to be the safest plan, in view of the recent cases that have developed nearby, to leave the pres ent arrangement in effect for at least another week. It is reported from Hylton, Elko County, that the members of the Smith and Robinson families are all fast recovering from the disease. Indian Deaths it Ducbwatar Charley Irving and Ralph Irwin came up from Duckwater last Satur day to procure a coffin for Molly Black eye, an Indian,who had died there that day. Dr. Brock of Ely attended her and said her death was due to an attack of pneumonia, not preceded by influenza. , Lame Charley, the man she was liv ing with, being in comfortable cir cumstances, insisted that she be given a respectable funeral and a coffin was provided and his wishes carried out in her burial. The deceased was born and raised at Duckwater, but visited Eureka from time to time and worked in different homes where she was better known as Indian Maud. She was past 70 years of age, and her mother, a very aged Indian women who lived with her, we understand is still liv ing. _ The wife of Bert Johnson, an Ind ian, who was mentioned in last week’s Sentinel as being critically ill fol lowing childbirth on November 8, died at Duckwater Saturday. J. R. Tognoni was returning to Duckwater with Dr. Brennen when met by a messenger who informed them of her death and also that of the infant child. Met With Serious Accident J. C. Johnson, night watchman and engine hostler at the local railway depot, met wity a painful and serious accident last Tuesday morning. He was sitting on the step of the motor car and riding from the roundhouse down to the depot, and when the car was running slowly near the water tank attempted to step off. His foot struck a tie or rock and he was thrown down, striking on his head and right shoulder. While his head was cut and bleeding he was not thought to be seriously injured and he was taken home. Dr. Brennen was called and an examination disclosed that his right collar bone was broken. As this is a particularly hard bone to hold in place while it is knitting, his ! progress toward recovery will be slow, but he is doing as well now as can be expected. James Delaney has taken his place at the depot. BORN. j At Eureka, Nevada, November 11, 1918, to I the wife of Thomas Clifford, a daughter. In Eureka, Nevada, November 12,1918, to i the wife of James Morrison, formerly Mi«a j Sophie Eathorne of Ruby Hill, a daughter.
