WALTffl KLUG WES FROM Somewhere in France, Nov. 25th., 1918 Dear brother and sister: Am in a convalescent camp now but we will soon be moved fron* here. Hope its home to the States. This is a punk climate, ev eryone has a bad cold. I've had one for two weeks, a very good one, I couldn't talk, I'd sure like to be home where the deer and sheep are. I'm glad the war's over and I don't have to carry mj T pack and walk through barbed wire entanglements any more. There are lots of towns here torn down by shells—roofs oft and ends torn down lrom the houses. It would take ages to tell it all. I went down town last night and an old French la dy said you be «ure and take a girl home withyou. I said, ''I'll see." She'd sure have to be pretty and then we prefer home folks every time. I cen talk French a little and count French money. There are lots of boys here, more than you would think could be. They are sent down from the hospital« to these camps. I met Dell Yant over here a month ago at the front, we were sure surprised and glad to see each other. He is in a different company, so I have not seen him since. [ Will close with love to all. Walter. AN OPEN LETTER 29, 1918 May. Idaho. Dec Mr. M- A. Dillingham, Dditor Challis Messenger, Challis, Idaho; Dear Sir: —I deny knowing of ( or taking any part in the annex- ; ation of the Custer county side; of the Pahsamaroi valley to Lem hi'eounty. I know that there is a growing feeling against the settional and personal hatreds that seem to ex | ist throughout the county and is | apparently as contagious as the j flu. My life has been mostly sgent in bringing up a family and building home». My home slate is called the Beehive State, As a Christian, I was taught -'Peace' on earth, good will toward meu" God's House is a House of order. As God is. man can be. The home must have harmony, unity of purpose—live for others not self alone. So in a neigh, borhood, county or nation. Gutter county has proven tobs the promised land or place of my life. I claim to be a unit, a bee. and taxpayer of Custer county. In that hive I want to work for oneness of purpose. A3 a tax payer. I repulse the contention and strife — sectional division that seems to tear the heart and vital circulation which would lend to the success ®f our county I appeal to every citizen and taxpayer to unite and demand a hearing, and have a voice in any and all business of the county, and not leave exerything to sec. tional iaterests which may be like the dog that crossed the A NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION The Yfar is Over—The Victory won --But America's Work is not Finished Because I am a loyal A merican— Because my country needs my help— Because what is saved in America will help the whole world— therefore, as my New Year's resolution, I promise. To live economically, and save all that I can during the coming year; to set a side each week a portion of what I earn and loan it to my Government by investing it iu War Savings Stamps. OBITUARY Thomas Williatn Olivers was born in Wales on Febru ary 24th, 1858, and moved to Utah with his father and mother when four years old. He was married to Miss Emly Bradbury ofM^ilad.to which union was born four children, William, Roy, Mel vin and Ethel, who with his wife survive him. He settled in Custer coun ty many years ago and was counted as one of our most highly respected pioneers, passed away at his home in this city on December 26th, interment being made in the Challis cemetery on Decem ber 28th. Cancer of the stomach was the cause ol death. Even though the great suf fering which he constantly endured, never changed his cheerful disposition. Always genial, he made many, man} triends with whom The Mes senger joins in extending to the bereaved family, words of condolence. ( ; | | j J ust as we go to press we learn of the death of Mrs- Ar thur Greene at Salmon. stream and seeing his shadow, grabbed for the shadow and lost his meat. Mackay is about the biggest shipping point of any range country in the United States and we are in our infancy, The pro ducts of our ranches, our range, our mines ând our water power can be multiplied many, many times. Citizens, rally around the hive! Gather the honey from the hills of Custer county! The mouey spent in legal con tention and strife by the stock men, if given to the Forest Ser vice, would help make trails and roads into Valley county on the west and put the real home buil der iu a position to fight for what justly belongs to him, and not give the transient men the cream of our range. Be one! or the hive will swarm and fly away and do no good for our county. Pahsamaroi valley is a great factor to either Custer sr Lemhi oounty. The inconven ience occasioned by our land stock, sghool and road districts being divided in two counties, gives great dissatisfaction. The bond money Is being spent on both ends avd gives us impas sable roads in between and the waste of pur tsqes through strife and extravagance will result in Lemhi county materially influ encing our people to annex. Yours truly. adv. I. E. WILSON. FOCH, MARSHAL OF FRANCE, AND GEN. PERSNH i J s, , ■0 A ."At the hour when the enemy counted upon imposing a German peace opon us, General Foch and his admirable troops vanquished him." These were the words with which Premier Clemenceau, the "Tiger of France," accompanied the bestowal upon General Foch of the ancient and honorable title of Marshal of Francs in recognition of the halting of ths German drive by jie allied chief commander. All the world Äows of the gallant conduct of American troops, distributed along the firing line under the orders of Genetal Pershing, in the great bottles which ended the Hun advance. Half a Century Ago Half a Century Ago, every community could be supplied to some extent with locally dressed ment, drawing on live stock raised nearby. Nov/ two-thirds of the consuming centers, with millions of people, are one to two thousand miles away fronj the principal live-stock produc ing sections, which are sparsely settled. The American meat packing industry of today is the development of the best way to perform c. national service. The function of providing meat had to de velop accordingly. Those men who first grasp ed the elements of the changing problem created the best facilities to meet it—large packing plants and branch houses at strategic points, refrigerating equipment (including cars), car routes, trained organization, profitable outlets for former waste — which became the nat ural, inevitable channels for the vast flow of meat across the country, ' If there were a better way to perform this necessary service, American ingenuity and enterprise would have discovered it, and others would now be using it. During 1918, Swift & Company has earned a profit on meats (and meat by-products) of less than 2 Y% cents per dollar of sales—too small a profit to have any appreciable effect on prices.
