Published Every Friday C. B. WRIGHT, Editor mad Manager Montpelier, Friday, October 4, 1918 HUN PIG SQVEAIjH. The Germans, after using every diabolical engine of destruction that they could construct, have protested against the use of shotguns by the American soldier. It was all right for the Huns to use gas and Same throw ers, to crucify captured Canadian sol diers in the trenches and perpetuate the most diabolical crimes in order to strike terror to the hearts of the Bel gians and Frenchmen who were de fending their country, but it is all wrong for the Americans to use shot guns, from the Berlin point of view, and The Hague convention is invoked. Since the imperial gevornment abol ished international law at the out break of the war, they are estopped from making any special pleas at this time, and it will go hard with the Huns If they dare execute any Ameri can soldiers who happen to fall into their hands. Acording to the Wash ington statement, shotguns are used only as authorized by the accepted rules of war,being employed in guard ing prisoners and in general police work. But even if they were used in the trenches, the German govern ment would have no cause for com plaint. So long as the barbarian hordes of the kaiser were victorious they showed no mercy. Now they are losing ground on every front, they de mand that the war be conducted in % genteel and ladylike manner,and com plain that the Americans are too rough with them. It is a great pity they did not think of these things be fore they forced us into the war, for they should have known that their gas liquid and hand gfenades would have no terrors for the young gentle gas from this side of the ocean, who had not been trained as soldiers and who were not supposed to know any thing about war. The "sawed-off" shotgun is a nasty weapon, we admit, and we do not blame the Germans for being decidedly averse tq having their paunches filled with buckshot; but as the shotguns are not used ex cept in the manner authorized by the Hague convention, very few Huns will be affected. As regards the threats of execution contained in the Berlin protest, it is only necessary to state that if that sort of thing is started, not one stone will be left standing upon another in any portion of Ger many through whch the American soldiers may pass, and, as they are now on the way to the Rhine, the au tocratic rulers should think twice be fore inviting annihilation. As a general rule, the young Amer ican soldier is kind-hearted. He con siders himself the champion of the op pressed, and would cheerfully yield up his life in defense of the women and children of his own or any other country. He does not thirst for hu man blood and war is not his trade. But he can fight like a string of wild cats when aroused, as the German sol diers are now well aware, and he will not be pacified if any of his captured, ÂÂ-'Æ K ouf.dvicch.o.r mans is to fight as fairly as their bru tal and cowardly natures will permit, and not give the American boys just cause for wiping them out to a man. —Salt Lake Tribune.

Taylor has re signed as republican state chairman. This comes as a climax to his pub lic "admission" several days ago that he signed the name of former Gov ernor Frank R. Gooding, republican senatorial candidate, to a letter ad dressed to himself, showing that the former governor would accept the non-partisan league Indorsement. Following threats by Governor Gooding, the non-partisan league produced this letter as evidence that the former .governor had courted their support. Taylor's declaration that he wrote the letter without knowledge or consent of Gooding was made within a tew days, and formed a minor climax to the episode of which his resignation is the de nouement. The committee has been called to meet here today (Friday) to name a successor to W. W. Von Canon, who withdrew as secretary of state, at which time it is presumed a new chairman will be selected. IDAHO MEN RELEASED FROM OCTOBER 7 CALL Four hundred and eighty-seven men called to entrain from the state beginning October 7 for Camp Lewis were released from the call until further notice by Provost Marshall General Crowder Friday in a telegram CARD OF THANKS. While mere words are wholly inad equate to express our appreciation, we take this manner of extending our sincere thanks to our many friends, and to the Neighbors of Woodcraft, Eastern Stars, Masons and Trainmen for their many kindnesses and untir ing efforts during the recent illness and taking away of our beloved Irene. Your kindness and sympathy help to make our burden of sorrow ltghter. P. G. RICHELSEN AND SON. J. N. DOWNING AND FAMILY. a .

"Hearts of the World," which has! )ust closed a sensational engagement, at the Orpheum, Salt Lake City where ' for three weeks it played to capacity]^ business, will open a two night's en- j gagement at the Montpelier theatre, beginning Monday evening, Oct. 7th. i It will be shown at 8:16 in the even-i ing and at 2:15 in the afternoon on' Tuesday. David W. Griffith spent eighteen montha on the battlefields of France in the neighborhood of the villages of Noyon and Ham to make the battle scenes of "Hearts of the World." In cidentally it was in these two villages in the past few weeks that the Ameri can troops so brilliantly distinguished themselves by rolling back the Ger man hordes further than ever. Many of the very spots where the Yanks fought so vallently and successfully are shown in "Hearts of the World." With these wonderful war scenes of actual conflict Griffith has woven a love story of the most irresistable kind. A love story which has been acclaimed by critics and public every where as "the sweetest love story ever told." It holds the interest in a tight grip and theatre goers laugh, weep and cheer and the action is unfolded with the swiftness of an express train. Despite the wonder of Griffith's previ ous productions, namely, "The Birth of a Nation" and "Intolerance" he has eclipsed himself in "Hearts of tbs World." The tremendous timely ap peal of this marvelous picture is ir resistable and literally carries an au dience off its feet. All of those big favorites, Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Robert Harron, Geo. A. Seigmann, George Fawcett, Robert Anderson and that marvelous child actor Little Ben Alexander, are In the cast. The same wonderful effects and the original musical score, special orches tra which figured so prominently in making the Salt Lßke engagement such a success will be included in the engagement here. Seats for "Hearts of the World" now on sale at the Jones-Robison Co. LA GRAND BARKDULL NOW AT FORT STEVENS, OREGON La Grand Barkdull, who went to Camp Lewis last month, was recently transferred, with several hundred others to Fort Stevens, Oregon. He is highly pleased with the change, as the following letter to his parents In dicates: Yesterday afternoon I went out to see the ocean and it was quite a sight to see big white caps come in. You can stand close to the water and when the big waves come in they look as though they would go in over the banks. The roar is so heavy that you can hardly hear yourself think. We are about two miles from the ocean and you can hear the roar of the waves quite plainly when all is quiet. We are on the banks of the Columbia river, which is so wide at this point that you can't see across it. I guess the fort was located here, so enemy ships could not go up the river. I would like to see one try to get past here without being sunk. They sure have a lot of big guns here. Every time I go out I see some new ones. They won't let us take pictures here or I wouud take some and send them to you. The guns we will be practicing on are 12-inch disappear lng turret guns. We have a fine bunch of officers here; so much differ ent from the ones at Camp Lewis. They treat us like men instead of an lmals, and are not so hard to please, I expect to be a corporal myself inside of a month. I am acting corporal now and was In charge of a squad coming from Camp Lewis. We have good mattresses and pit low slips—can you beat it? The food Is just like home cooked—so much better than it was at Camp Lewis. If we had a chance to go back I don't think there would be one out of the 1600 who would go of his own accord, s I« - & a W Coats • •• We take a great deal of pride in our showing of Ladies' and Misses' Coats, for it is the tc r suit of searchingfor the best in the markets. For the children we have a number of very attractive models to select from. Here there is ample choice in style and quality appealing to every taste and price. An early inspection is advisable. 4 Brennan & Davis i greatest present task is to prepare leaders in citizenship for the times that are coming after the war. History ought surely in some de gree, If it Is worth anything, to play an Important part in preparing the American youth for citizenship. It should give him a true sense of world values, a fine, robust Tdealism, and a determination to live or die for these ideals, to do his bit for world righte jusness. To correlate this question of citi zenshlp with ancient history, it is ouly accessary to study the ancient laws and customs of the Orient and of the Greeks and Romans, and we see how this great problem has been the pre dominate motive down through the ages. For example, take the Atheni an youth whose education from the -very beginning was not only military in character, but was such that he could take part in the public debates of the Assembly, and In the law-mak ing of the nation. In Modern History we follow the history of the nations of Europe down to the present time. It is interesting to note ' the characteristic of each country and to see how these factors led them to take their places in the present world conflict. There is to be placed in the history room a large map of the Western Front on which the daily operations of the allied troops will be noted. These will be shown by the movement of various colored ribbons which will represent the allied armies. This will necessitate the dally reading of news papers by the pupils, thereby arous ing their Interest in the vital prob lems of the day. The class in Current History is showing enthusiasm in the study of these problems. Using the Literary Digest and pamphlets published by the committee on Public Information as texts, they are studying the Euro pean war—its causes, the historical background, the government and cus toms of the countries concerned, the character of the war. and America's part in the war. Not only are they studying these problems, but they are also discussing new inventions and discoveries, and the acts of congress. An uninformed American is a poor almost a dangerous American. The young people of America must be made aware of the great events In the world, of the past as well as the present, in order to make themselves useful citizens of tomorrow.
