Across the Seas They Gall
; A CROSS the seas from every war-tom nation in the Allied cause there comes the call for Red Cross help. It comes from soldiers who have grimly faced the gleaming bayonet steel and poison gas and screaming shells, and who now lie with parching throats and throbbing wounds. It comes from soldiers sick with fever, pneumonia, tuberculosis. It comes from soldiers crippled, mutilated, blinded, who can no longer fight and must be taught and trained for useful occupations. It comes from the underfed, shivering, helpless prisoners in the German prison camps. It comes from little children, orphaned, home less, slowly starving day by day, by tens and tens of thousands. It comes from mothers in the pillaged zopes of war whose hearts and souls have been made numb with horror. From all these millions of suffering human beings there comes across the seas the call for help—help that because of the frightful burdens placed upon our Allies cannot be given unless it be provided by the American Red Cross. Another hundred million is needed to What will America's answer be ? \ ff ti carry on. Every cent of every dollar received for the Red Croet War Fund goet for War Relief. The American Red Cross Is the largest and most efficient organization for the relief of suffering that the World haa ever seen.

Board convened in this city at 2 p. m. on May 6th and was composed of the following men: W. H. Smith, representing the public, Montpelier; J. E. Davis, As sistant Supt. O. S. L., Montpelier; W. H. Murray, Dlat. Foreman, O. S. L., Montpelier and L. Rassmussen, Claimn Adjuster, O. S. L., Pocatello. After examing Board made the following findings: That switch engine number 4716, In charge of L, G. Thompson, engine foreman; C. C. Twyman, switchman, following the engine; J. A. Jones, field switchman; Hyrum Burton, en gineer; Alex Allenback, fireman, in shoving a string of freight cars ov er the Main street crossing, Montpel ier, Idah,o, about 10:10 p. m., May 5th, 1918, collided with Oakland, left-hand drive, 1917 model auto mobile, Utah 1918 license number 9205, resulting in the death of Ralph Smith and Vaneda lsabell Brown, injuries to Ernest George Gardner and Mary Edna Bunn, occupants of the machine which was completely demolished. Further, the tracks through Mont pelier yard run in a northerly-south erly direction, the engine headed north, was switching In the yard with 25 cars coupled ahead of it. The train was pulled south over the crossing to allow two automobiles to cross the tracks from the east to the west, after which signal was given and train started to move northward when two automobiles closely fol lowing each other, were seen ap proaching from the west. The cross ing watchman, Frank Orange, start ed immediately from his shelter, lo cated on the south side of the street, 15 feet east of track number 6, on which the cars were moving, and commenced to give stop signals by means oÇ a white lantern, at the same time walking across track No. 5 and track No. 6, toward the sp proachlng automobiles. He contin ued to five this signal until foroed witnesses the to step to the side to avoid being struck by the first automobile, and driven by Ernest George Gardner, md occupied by Mary Edna Bunn, Ralph Smith and Vaneda Isabeil Brown, which was struck by the first car of the train. The driver of the Becond automobile, Frank So rensen, and the other occupants, Laura Welker and Delva Haycock, observed the signals of the watch^ man and stopped. After being structc the automo bile was shoved and crushed beneath the car for a distance of 121 feet, while the car ran a distance of 141 feet and derailed. The evidence further shows that the train as it approached the street was moving at about 4 or 5 miles an hour, while the automobile was in high gear and running from four to six miles per hour. When it was seen by the switch crew that the au tomobile was not going to stop they gave violent stop signals to the en gineer, which was promptly acted upon and the cars were stopped as soon as poeslble. The engine sig nals sounded by tbe engineer were not heard at the crossing owing to the distance. The driver and sur viving occupants of the automobile claim they did not see the crossing watchman and the first they saw of the approaching car of the train it was about 3 to 4 feet distant, when the driver placed his foot on the ac celerator and attempted to cross ahead of the car. Main street crosses the tracks at nearly right angles. The crossiug is planked in good servicable condi tion. It Is lighted by fdur electric lights, located one east of the cross ing, in the center of the street, one on each side of the street, east of the westward main track and one west of track N. 7, south of the street. Tho standard crossing signs pro tect the crossing, one in line with the south sidewalk, east of the west ward main track and one west of the repair track, south of the street. Our conclusions are, after a care ful consideration of the evidence, that the employes of the Oregon Short Line Railroad Company were in their proper places and attending to their duties. Tlte accident was due to the driver of the automobile not seeing or heeding the signals ot the crossing watchman. 400 SHEEP BRING PRICE OF $25 PER HEAD _ Four hundred sheep were sold by Flockmaster O.

There is no blood in this Emblem. It is clean, my and sanctified by the great caus Mercy and Humanity, yb this Order. Wear it, brother, when the clinida hang heavy and the sun shines the brightest, wear it in adversity in prosperity, wear it in Joy and in sorrow, wear it in sickness ami in health, wear it always with the righteous pride it deserves and it will prove a blessing and solace to thee and will be found a sure safe guard against the ills and the per plexities of life."

Forty-five years ago on the 7th day of June I was initiated into the Or der, at the village of Milburn, in the county of Ballard, in the state of Kentucky. This was eight after the close of the Civil War and I was proud to say that while I was an ex-confederate soldier I was sur rounded and initiated by somc| 8 or 10 ex-federaal soldiers, who had laid down their prejudices and ex tended to me the right hand of fel lowship and welcomed me as a brother Odd Fellow. About the early part of 1875, having located at BlandvtiUe, tn said county, I withdrew from Mil burn Lodge and Joined BlandklUe Lodge by card. ears About 1891 I With drew from Blandville Lodge, and in October, 1892, I assisted in the organization of Soda Springs Lodge, in Bannock County, Idaho, and With said Lodge deposited the card of withdrawal from Blandville and some years later I from Soda .Springs Lodge by card and joined this Lodge. During the 45 years of which I ' ave been a member of this Order i have at all times tried to perform f aithfully my duties as a member of the Order toward the Lodge anti its membership, and at no time haB this Lodge or any member of the Order failed to serve me in time of need. I do not accept this Jewel for its intrinsic worth or value, compensation for long and service in the Order, but as a token ' ove and appreciation which this Lod K e haa always shown and 1 shaU ever W€ar Jt pr ' de as a luminous talisman y our ,ov ®' respect and confidence in me and 7or n* 0 '" Lodge, withdrew towarde vith of . . . * Â7T* if, : ' IL J 3 ) i /|K| ga ik'/y .\\ sHWflHr VStFlT!
