Struck by Stray Bullet Rex burg, Ida., June 0.—On June 4, while Mr. Fred Wieland was plowing on his farm about six miles north of Rexburg, he heard a distinct report of a rifle. He looked around, but could see no one. At tho same time he felt a peculiar sensation about his person. He continued plowing on down the fur row, when he saw that blood was run ning down his hand onto the plow handle. He examined his arm and found that a bullet had entered the fleshy part of it just below the elbow and came out at the wrist. The bullet then passed on and struck one of the horses in the hind foot. As the blood continued to flow, after wrapping up his arm with his coat, he hitched up his team to the wagon and drove home. He was so weak from the loss of blood that when he entered the house ho fainted and fell on the floor. Dr. Ormsby treated the wound and he stated that it was the worst case of the kind he had ever treated. From the way the bullet struck Mr. Wieland as he held his hand on the plow handle, one would think that the bullet had been fired into the air and that its force was about spent when it struck him in its downward course. -Capital News.

Businessmen and Mem bers of Volunteer Fire Department Neglect Their Duty. The PKAK is sorry to learn that our volunteer fire department is not receiv ing the encouragement and aid from our business men that it should, and, furthermore, that about half of the members fail to respond to the call for practice. This should not be. In most towns and cities members are compelled to attend to regular practices or forfeit a fine of from 50c to $1, or even more, according to the laws laid down bv the home company. We have seen fit to purchase a hose cart and hose, a fire bell and all necessary equipments, which will be utterly useless in case of fire un less properly handled, and in order to do this, it is necessary for every mem her to be at his post on practice nights and take interest in tho work which he has volunteered to do. Our business men in turn should see to it that this enterprise should receive all the neces sary aid and encouragement to keep the boys in good spirits and help to give St. Anthony a good fire department. Let us all tie a unit in this matter and do everything possible to protect ourselves against fire. Chamberlain's Colic.
