SEPTEMBER 14. 1918 THE WAR The dispatches show that the Allied fighting of the last week has pro duced anothor unbroken series of Al lied HUccesnen. These successes, too, have been of the greatest importance. The maximum Allied efforts have been made at vital points, the north and Bouth pivots of the German re treat. A dispatch says that General Pnch has held American troops hack In the late Allied drive for the new drive into Alsace-Lorraine which started Thursday morning. The HUM) division composed of troops from Colorado, New Mexico Arizona and South Dakota have al ready captured five German towns and are still ahvanciug, according to latest report. Latest— A a report comes in that the Americans have captured St. Mihel. one of the strongest points on the Western front, and which has been held by the Germans for four years. The Boston Red Sox won the World's Championship. Nominees The big results In the state primary election shows the probable choice of Tynan as the Democratic nominee for govenor. The Republicans have chosen Phipps for U. 8. Senator and Shoup for govenor. The county returns are not canvas sed yet, but the unofficial vote show that, the Democrats have selected Shepherd for treasurer and Wear for sheriff. The Republicans named Miller as their candidate for com missioner in the Rangley district. Home Service Section A. R. C. Mrs. W. T. Boyd, field representa tive of the Mountain Divislou of the Red Cross gave the |>eople of this 1 vicinity a new idea of what Home | Service means. The families of the ; men in service are to receive every possible rare and consideration; they may apply for such information as they need;.they can communicate with their !soldiers by cablegram when necessary, and have govern mental blanks carefully filled out for them. When the war is over there will be no sewing or knitting re quirements that social welfare needs, must receive better attention than ever before. Our Home Service com mittee will be the permanent , foundation for best results In the future development of the communi ties Interested. Good Home Service work in the present means better citizens In the future.
