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.’’

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.
