Fill DAY, APltlL 18, 1919 N UM BKP PEACE ENVOYS ASK COUNTRY » TO TAKE LOAN to American Delegates in Paris Sent Victory Message to Nation Four members of the American peace mission In France, Secretary of State Robert Lansing, Col. E. M. House, General Tasker N. Bliss and Henry White, have sent this message to the American people urging support of the Victory Loan: "TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: "We have had the opportunity here In France to see and realize the mag nitude of the accomplishment our country In this war and the magnificent spirit with which this great task has been carried through to a triumphant issue. "What has been done and what re mains to be done before normal con ditions are restored demand your con tinued and united support with the same spirit of self sacrifice and of de termination as that which was mani fested by the nation while the German armies faced our men at the Marne, : nd In the Champagne, at St. Mlhlel end in the Argonne. We must not re 1 i\ our efforts until every soldier of Lie republic is landed on the soil of A mertca. "To finish this mighty task Imposes upon the government of the United States a great financial burden. The Victory Liberty Ixian mast thrive. If it should fail it would Indicate that the Nation is willing to leave its thsk un completed. "To secure the Ideals for which Americans fought and died this great demand on national patriotism and united effort should meet a generous and universal response. Let us do our duty to the end. 'ROBERT LANSING, 'HENRY WHITE, 'E. M. HOUSE, •T. N. BLISS." SHOT 9 TIMES SOLDIER TAKES HUN TRENCHES Corporal Storms Heights of Ourcq River With Rem nants of His Platoon At the direction of the War Depart ment General Pershing hag forwarded from France accounts of 100 deeds of heroism performed by,soldiers of the American 'orces, most typical of the spirit of our army. The story of Cor poral Sidney Manning is one of con spicuous gallantry. Corporal Manning was in-charge of an automatic rifl« squad when his bat talion assaulted the heights of the Ourcq River. During the advance on the hill Manning's platoon commander was killed, and Just as the line reached the crest of the hill the platoon Ber geant fell. Corporal Manning then assumed command of the platoon. Though he himself was severely wounded and was the only survivor of his squad, this sol dier led forward the 35 remaining men of tbe platoon against an enemy strong point, wired, entrenched and defended by machine guns, which dom inated the Ourcq valley. He was re peatedly wounded but with seven men took the position. While his men con solidated the line he held off a ccnsid erable number of the enemy fifty yards away with his rifle. When the posi tion had been consolidated he crawled back to shelter, having received nine wounds. Backing up such examples of sacri fice as this the government is calling o . the people to take the Victory Loan to pay for the expenses of our wn time arni£. VICTORY LOAN TEST OF PATRIOTISM—Wood Major General Leonard Wood, who at Camp Funston trained two divi sions of Americans for overseas service, has asked the American people to support the Fifth Ixian. He says: "We have carried the war on suc cessfully so far and we must set it through. The Fifth Loan, coming as It does after the armistice, will be a more severe test than the others, of the patriotism of our people. It is Just as important a9 any loan we have made, and it should lie carried through JuBt aa vigorously as the others. It is no lime now to let up on our efforts. Reorganization is even more diffi cult and almost as Important as the period of preparation. Put it over, and good luck. We must have it" Water System For Marion Assured The Marion Pipe Line is soon to be an accomplished lact. The company has been organized and steps taken toward ils incorpor ation. The money necessary lor the project lias been provided. The directors of Ibe concern are now looking foi an engineer to lay out tbe work. As soon as the work is laid out, calls will be made lor bids. The Marion Pipe Lint Coin panv was organized April 5, at the Marion school bouse. Win Martin was elected president W. 'I'. Cranney vice-prtsidrni Geo. F, Du Vail, sécréta ry -1 rea surer. andj. ß. Alexander and M. T. Woodliouse, directors. It is thought that the water system will cost $40,000. This sum is said to be forthcoming. The Bates spring, which is tlie source of water for the pipe line, varies from twenty to thirty mi ners inches. This is enough to supply 23,000 head of cattle per day, allowing fifteen gallons per head. The supply is ample tor all household and stock pur |i(»ses.

Mr B' inlonand tlie boy's father were teaching him how to use a gun. But although they were instructing him in the u*e of firearms, it seems they neglected to caution him to keep his fingers away from the trig ger. However that may be. the young marksman did have his finger on Ihej above mentioned lever. Perhaps lie was wondering just how hard be wmv'fl bave to pull in order to make the gun go off. He pressed just slightly but tbe shell was exploded. Just at the instant that Ihe gun "went off", the little hoy rushed in front of the barrel, and received the full charge in his leg. Besides, there scattering shots in his other were leg. It is thought that the bo) will recove . YOUR HAND? • ! * 1 V: ■ I I nt. • i j It pi Ï1 - il * % |üs\ i! JR? t \ I I o is I ill ■ ; .r i \ j j !
