Dy ment with the American Red Cross searcher of the 91st di vision gives a very descriptive account of the death of Lt. John Long, a son of County Com missioner and Mrs. John D. Long of Grangeville. Lieuten ant Long is well known here and was a member of Company E for some time and attended an officers training school at the Presido after which he received his commission and was made an officer of the 91st. The fol lowing relates to his death as told by Dyment. A man now much mourned in the Grangeville (Idaho) region lost his life on the first day of the Hundred Hours: Lieuten ant John Long of the headquar ters company of the 361st and attached when killed to the pio neer platoon of the third batta lion. Two days before Long had done excellent work consolidat ing positions in the charge up on Miller hill. On September 30 the third battalion lay in sup port of the second at the edge of the Cierges woods. Captain James C. Fortune, third battalion adjutant, a Los Angelan dug a hole next to Cap tain Campbell Burke of Seattle so he might hand him messages without leaving the pit. Burke, however, got down in a shellhole so Fortune got into Burge's hole and Long got into Fortune's. The Hun was shelling as usual. "Well, John," said Fortune, "you had quite a time'night be fore last. I wonder who's next, you or me?" "Dammed if I know," said Long, and went off to sleep. He 'ay on his left side. His left hand was under the'side of his head ; his right hand was in his pocket; his helmet was tipped over his face, as was the custom among men sleeping in foxholes. Fortune began eating hard tack. The platoon commanded by Long contained a number of runners, who were lying around in their holes in the little slope, waiting for orders. One of them was Private Sam Johnson, a tall, heavy-set man from Seat tle. Johnson had diarrhoea, as had neraly every one, and went to Lieutenant Long's foxhole to ask where the infirmary was and to ask nermission to go there for medicine. As he stood bv the hole, a shell fell beside it. Hit in the back, he died in stantly. The top of the lieutenants head was blown off and he was partly covered with dirt. The men who ran over found his left hand under the side of his head and the right hand still in his pocket, and they left him just where he was. About * four days later he and Johnson were put into graves about 50 feet distant, where 46 others also are buried. Fortune's question to Long, "Who'll be next you or me?" re flected the officer mind. Casual ties among the officers were high in the 91st. Lieutenants, captains, majors and sometimes colonels shared the men's dan gers. German officers might have stayed back, American offi cers like the English, led the meri by example as well as by orders; yet each officer knew by the law of percentage that his turn was likely to come. Fifty six 91st officers died, three time& that many were wounded. HEADACHES FROM EYE STRAINS Few people realize how large is the proportion of headaches directly due to strained eyes. This is natures warning un less the strain is relieved seri ous and permanent injury to the eyes will result. Children frequently suffer from eye strain without know ing the cause of it and when neglected very often leads to permanent impairment of the delicate structure of the eye and thereby becomes dependent on the use of glasses all their lives. If taken in time glasses worn for a short time very often cor rect the strain and the eyes be come normal so that glasses mav be disœnsed with entirely. Children's eyes have been my specialty for more than a quar ter of century. Dr. S. Salsberg, Cottonwood Hotel, May 19th to 26th. PUBLIC TAKE NOTICE.
