The people of this section
of Custer county were most
agreeably surprised last Fri
day night when they were
most delightfully entertain
ed at the picture show with
lèverai selections by the Boy
Scout's Band.
The boys, ten in number,
are progressing rapidly in
their musical work and the
band not only promises to
be but is already a credit to
the town when the length of
time consumed in practice is
taken into consideration.
The need of such an organ
aation has been felt greatly
during the past and especial
ly so during the period of the
war when so many public
gatherings were held in the
interests of war movements.
The personel of the band
Is as follows: J. L. Ebberts,
to whom sole credit is due in
organizing and training the
boys; Julius Aleson, Merle
Hosford, Joe Brasseur and
Loyd Blume, cornets; Jesse
Bradley, tuba; Lewis Fox,
Floyd Bradley and Lawrence
Chamberlain, altos; and Ken
th Bradley, tenor.
A movement is on foot to :
secure funds to purchase uni
forms for the boys and to al
so finance their organization
and those in charge do not
anticipate any trouble in
raising sufficient funds to
niake the boys .realize that
their efforts are appreciated.

Having ready cash for
sudden emergencies is possible
only when you have saved a part of
your salary or wages.
Start with a small deposit if
necessary. Increase it as you
can and soon you will
have a substantial inter
est-bearing account,
and a feeling of
safety, content
ment, pride and
independence.

When the Fat Year* Return
By F. C.
Ambulance 1-8G, Western Front.
; When the fat years return, and, rich
and free,
You half forget, as men have ever
done,
The price once paid for your security,
Thinking too much of fortune lost or
won,
Too much of pride and laughter, food
and ease,
Or of some public favor cheaply
earned,
Oh, then turn back the page and think
of these
Who gave their bodies for freedom
to be burned—
For these lived, too: they, too, loved
ease and laughter! .
Sunlight, the green earth. All that
you still keep
They had, and more—vision. If you
come after
And dare forget them, buried ao
young, so deep.
And dare forget this faith for which
they stood—
Ah, but you will not, being of their
blood! —The Outlook.
Start figuring now on your personal
quota of Victory Liberty Bonds. If
you don't, start figuring on increased
taxes.

By ones, twos and threes
our boys are returning.
Some of them are carrying
badges which a hun bullet
made in their hard young
flesh as it screeched its way
in an effort to stem the irre
sistible tide of pure, red A
merican blood which finally
overwhelmed a barbaric and
treacherous foe. We bid these
heroes welcome.
Others there are whom
Providence ordained should
serve the cause of Freedom
in their own land, which
they did, faithfully and well.
While their comrades fought
and fell in Flanders' Fields
they stood ready, at a mo
ment's notice to take up the
fight where their martyred
comrade was forced to leave
iff. We bid these heroes wel
come.
And in this glorious and
happy hour of reunion, when]
we pour out our hearts' bur- 1

LADIES-CHOICE BALL

"Just couldn't wait 'till Leap Year"

den ot gratitude to these
glorious boys—these Minute
Men of 1918, we must not
forget the gallant lads who
have not yet returned, th#
boys who are still on dstj
for humanity and freedom.
A hearty welcoibe awaits
them.
Even though the occasion
of welcoming our heroes is a
glad one, yet does a strain of
deep and reverent soitow
mingle with our happinesa
as we think of our boys who
cannot return. The lads
who are peacefully sleeping
'neath the lillies of France.
The deep sorrow occasioned
by their death is only assn
aged by the knowledge that
they did not die in vain.
Elsewhere we publish the
program oi the exercises of
welcome which program un
intended to honor both the
living heroes and the dead
heroes.
But somewhere around 25
per cent ot our boys hars re*
turned as yet and when all
of our living heroes bave re
turned we hope to have a
big day of rejoicing.
