OHITUAItY. George Cecil Story was born In Craig, Mo., Junuary Kl, 18'J5, und was sector In France, October C, 1018, ngcl to his platoon when he was struck a years, 0 months, and Si days.

L, 13th Infantry. Ono sister, Nellie Story, has preceded liim to the Great lleyond. On April 20, 1018, George C. Story was called to the Colors and left Ore gon, Mo., In company with fourteen others for Camp Funston, Kan. After going through the receiving station he was sent to Dententlon Camp No, 2, near Fort Riley, whero he spent his first few weeks in the army. On May ID, ho was transferred to Cnmp Funston proper, and was assigned to Company I, 360th Infantry, 80th Divi sion. The compony wos only tncro a few days when It received orders to go to Camp Mills, N. Y., where the men drew their overseas equipment, and on Juno 3 they embarked on the English transport ship, Corona, land ing at Liverpool, England, Juno 16. Hero they spent n few days and then proceeded to South Hampton where they crossed the English Channel to La Havre, Prance. They proceeded to Liffol le Grand, France, near Chau mont, for n few weeks' training. The 3rd battalion, of which Story was a member, was billeted in a tittle vil lage named Vllouxl, near Liffol lo Grand. Here the time was spent In hard training, preparatory to ,tho struggle ahead of them. In the some company with Story ii tlm lillln chuich varil In tho Com mune of Jaulncy, Mueithe-et-Mozellc. Tom and Ernest, his brothers, received n Mivontv.tivn hour nasH and walked from Vlgnot to jauincy, a instance m fifty miles, to visit the grave of George. Later In 1019, the body of George Story was disinterred and re buried in tho St. Mihiel Ameilran cemetery at Thlaucourtj Mucrthe-ot- Mozellc. It seemed that Story had somo pre sentiment that death was near, for he said to Frank Mead, his chum, who was badly gassed and wounded the same night, as he delivered him sev eral letters, "This will bo tho last mall I will ever bring you." Of him, Mead says, "Gcorgo Story was one of the best liked men In the entire company nnil never hesitated In fulfilling his duty to the utmost." Ho had the re spect or the omcers ami an cnusveu men who knew him. Ills record was absolutely clean and honorable." The r.lght Story was killed his com pany was i educed to nearly nothing under tho withering fire of tho Ger mans and on the morning of the Cth only three men of tho entire company were left for active service. K com pany, the same night, was reduced to six men and Companies E and H, the other two companies in the front lines with these companies, were also badly "sot up." Their losses were not us high a tho.c in Companies I and K. Ou; of the contingent that left Ore gon when .'tnry did, two wcic killed in tictkin und rcven wounded. S dl"(l Geoige C. Story.

Hut that scaffold sways tho futuie, ; And behind the dim unknown, Standcth God amid the shadows, 1 Keeping wutch above Ills own." i I nut the saddest thtnir of all was ,that life must be sacrificed In order that God's plan for tho world could be accomplished. Gcd's uctlons are always difficult for men to understand. For we forgot that His Uelng Is to infinite and far above ours, that it tfould be hocpless for ub to try to discern His Intentions. I . 1 .1 I- 1, It . -. Tin Ami mat is wen, lur it nui, iin-ii would not bo a God. That is why we aro left to conjecture so much ubout death. To us It has been tho most ter rible fact In all creation. And it has ever filled our hearts with dread. Hut death to a soldletr Is not so terrible as we would think. I have stood by the side of hundreds of them who have passed from this life while In the service of the country that they loved and I have never yet seen a single ono of them who was not ready to die cheerfully and gladly as they gave up thorc lives for the tiling that they believed to bo right. Nearly all of them came to the realization that death was not only possible but high ly probable and it was the most nat ural thing In the world for them to picparc for the unknown future. Why aio men so ready to lay down life for principle? Hecaui-o God made them so. God ha filled man with the three attiibutes, faith, hone and love, and the gieatct of thc.-e Is love. "And grcuter love hath no man than thl ., that a man lay down his life for his friend. Thut is what Abiaham Lincoln did, what McKinley did, and what Chiist did. And because that l tiue, such Kiierflre I not only heroic, but it is Christly. Such It is with this laddie who lies hero before u today In the dieamtess sleep of earth. He heard tho call of broken-hearted mothers coming from acoss the seas. He heard the nitcoui rrv nf tlm ktm-vtnt- liahleA nnil It came -! 1 . ,n.,..ct,..ul I.'. .... ,,.!

Georiro Story went into the army with tho same spirit of cheerfulness that hail won him so many menus in civil life. And with this same spirit of cheer ho adapted himself to tho new and trying conditions of camp life. Ho soon won overy mnn In his company, for he had learned tho mighty secret that If a man would have friends he must be a friend. Whenevor duty came his way, we are told that George Story performed his task with tho same old spirit of cheerfulness, that ho 'never shirked, but ever did he try to be a good sol dier for his country. He was made a llason runner and his duties were full of danger.

And then one evening ho slipped out anil uwuy about the errand that had been entrusted to him, und failed to come back. An order came to him nml George being a good soldier obeyed that order and marched fearlessly into the picsence of the Great Commander. The soldiers In the great war some how had a view of death that was dif ferent. They had gone away from their homo toward tho cast. Home was behind them in the west, and there was an intense desire on the part of all to be back at homo once more, not that they were cowards and could not play the game, but rather that they felt the pull of home ties so strongly tugging at their hearts. Hence It camo about that when a sol dier was wounded and carried to tho rear the first thought was, "I am go ing west, going home." And always the cry was the same. Ah, say It not so. Going east toward the sunriso of God's eternal kingdom. My friends, your hearts are bruised and broken, and it is hard for you to understand that God has not made a mistake, but remember this, you aro not alone in your sorrow. This whole community grieves for you and our prayer is that God in all of His Infinite mercy and wUdom will help you to know that He Is too wise to make a mistake, too good to be unkind.
