He seemed to recover from this but had not been feeling the best, and had decided on going to Salt Lake City Monday last. Was (Join-; to Salt Luke. Sunday he put in all day at his office straightening out some busi ness matters of importance and that night seemed to be more tired than usual. Monday morning he decided to remain another day, intending to leave on Tuesday's train.

He stands six feet, seven and one-half inches in his stockings. He tried to got in at Angel Island. Five doctors passed him but the sixth nd last one decided that the Lincoiu county boy was too tall. Then Weeks went to Salt Lake city nd tried to get into the Navy but his unusual heighth barred him. Last week the Lincoln county board decided that a fellow who wanted to go to war as bad as Frank does should be granted the' privilege. He was passed and now he is happy.

How ever, no one was injured which would have been the case had either party been driving fast. Nation was headed for home, while Mr. Smith, uccompanied by Mrs. Smith and a guest who was to make the afternoon traiu, was enroute to Caliente. Tho professor managed to get his car going and after hauling his passenger at the station returned with a wheel for the scribe's car. This was quickly installed and every body landed home safe and sound but a little bit late. It was one of those accidents that will happen sooner or later to anyone who drives a car. Both drivers sound ed their horns but the stiff gale pre vented either from hearing the alarm. But the Record man Is going to profit from the experience. Next time he attempts to negotiate one of those hairpins lie is going to be mighty sure that he has the road to him self. Perhaps the professor fools ti e same way. PRINCIPAL J. R.
