Pneumonia surely must be a
scourage to our soldiers more deadly
even than German bullets, laying them
low in the camps here as well as over
in^ Europe. Last week in looking over
Mjme of our exchanges we noticed the
following deaths of soldier boys: The
Karlstad Advocate mentions that Si
vert Spild-e. of Halma, died at Camp
Dodge from pneumonia. The Bemidji
Sentinel states that Floyd Olson, of
Island Lake. i* dead at Cecaucas, N. J..
from scarlet fever that developed into
pneumonia. The Middle River Pioneer
gives an account of the funeral of
Berger Satterstrom. a Marshall county
boy. who died at Camp Devins of pneu
monia. The Kennedy Star tells of the
death of Louis Alfred Gravegaard. a
Kittson county boy, who died at Fort
Porter. Buffalo. N. Y.. of pneumonia.
The Fergus Falls Journal contains the
account of the death of Hjelmer Sund
berg at Camp Dodge, of pneumonia,
and the Stephen Messenger states that
"Ed. Ericksen. son of" Mr. and* Mrs: Dan
Erickson, had died at Washington on
April 10. also of pneumonia. In as
much as the young men sent have
passed a physical examination and are
the strongest and most fit in the com
munities from which they go, the
mortality among them from this cause
is hard to account for. In all proba
bility the change from an ordinary to
a military life is too sudden and vio
lent for their young and unhardened
constitutions. The government no
doubt does all it possibly can for the
conservation of the health of its sol
diers, but even more ought to be done,
it does seem.

Mrs. Easton Receives a Kindly and

Dana Easton. son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. P. Easton, of this city, is on the
battle front in France doing his duty
as an American soldier. On the day
before he left for the firing line, a
