James Smallwood Returns From Van
James Srrallwood, who left for Van
eouver Barracks, Washington about
two weeks njro, has returned after
spending liin? days i.i the camp. Mr.
Smallwood had been placed in the
Spruce division of the Aviation sec
tion of the .T my, but was deemed to
be underweight and in consequence
w?s reacted for this service. He
hopes to get into some other division
but in the meantime will remain in

mnnajrer of the Smallwood Sanitary
Mr. Smallwood naturally is disnp-
pointed at not being able to remain in
the sc-rvice. He had been anxious to
get into army work for a long time
and had arranged his business so that
he might be free to devoto nil his time
to the service of our country.
I Mr. Smallwood says that he enjoyed
his nine days in camp thoroly. He
wns given a uniform and received drill
work while there. In the morning
when the big gun goes off, one doesn't
need a second invitation to get up and
prepare for the day's work. He says'
that when the "green" men arrive at
camp the others throw down whatever
tools they happen to be using, and
stand erect, guying the newcomers.
"Look at those feet "Pull in your
ears," are so-ne of the expressions
that one hears, but after the recruits
have been in camp d?y or two, they
act the same way with the others who

Hugh Sparks in Jail Charged With
Hugh Sparks was ai*rested Monday
chai-ged with bootlegging. The war
rant was sworn out by John B. Braves,
an Indian. Three Indians from the
reservation say that t'hey gave Sparks
each a dollar for a pint of whiskey.
If this is so, Sparks will be made to
go some under the new bootlegging
law, as any man .who acts as an
agent for another in procuring liquor,
is guilty of bootlegging.
Sparks' wife was badly cut up by
somebody recently but she refused to
connect anyone with the crime. Dur
ing the night, someone entered her
room and slashed her legs with a big
knife, and afterwards threw her out
of the window. Neighbors could hear
the row, and heard a man calling for
"Olga," the name of Sparks' wife, but
before an arrest could be made, the
woman's assailant disappeared.
HARNESS MUST BE RETURNED
The party who took the two sets of
harness from the Warren Brey farm,
north of Surrey, had better return
same at once. He is known and un
less attention is paid to this at once,

thing I can do then is to repeat and
repeat, then repeat some more. What
has got me guessing is that if there
are 100,000 words in the French lan
guage and I continue to learn fifty

have to stay here to learn to parley
with my hands?
Doesn't the war news sound good?
From all indications the Allies are go
ing to continue to give the Huns hell,
and. maybe end it up shortly. And
then won't it be a glorious t'.iing when
that Statue of Liberty heaves in
sight. Everyone, from the highest
to the lowly buck private wants to g«t
back. I think that is why the Amer
icans over here (and those over there)
are fighting so hard—they want
to wind up the whole thing good and
proper, and once again get back to
the good old U. S. A. That seems reas
onable, doesn't it? France is beau
tiful and fascinating and interesting,
but when things are done up the way
we want them you will find few cases
of anyone wanting to stay over here.
He would be a mighty queer Ameri
can if he did.
