Eckart. better known as "Bert," departed Mondny evening for Camp Meade, Pa., where he ha3 en listed in the engineering corns. Bert feels highly elated over having made, the engineering branch or the army, one of the most coveted departments in the war service, and still more plated over the prospects of being in active service in France within three months. His brother, John, is al ready in the trenches, while another brother, Grover, is in training and expects to be sent abroad in the spring. This makes three sons that Mrs. Sara Eckart of Pinos Altos has given to her country's cause n truly noble record ami one to be proud ot. All the Eckart boys have been em ployed at various times by the 85 Min ing Company of the city. SCHRIVER GIVEN SEND-OFF. The following editorial appeared in the Silver City Enterprise of last week: "The appointment of Frank Schri- ver as sheriff of Grant county to fill the unexpired term of H. J. McGrnth. resigned, by the Board of County Commissioners last Monday will, the Enterprise believes, meet with gen eral and merited approvnl. Tbe writer hat known Mr. Scnriver for the last fifreen years, .and although of oppo site political faith, has admirod liis manliness, good, sound judgment ni.d bi'oadmmdedness. Mr. Schnvur is in no sense a politician, but is u straight forward ranchman, a man acquainted with the hardships ot lite on the plains, who has wrested a living from the soil by the sweat of his brow. "He croes into office absolutely with hands politically clean; he has no po litical axes to grind and he should, and we believe he will, give Grant county an efficient and economical adminis tration of that office.

It was glory to God in the highest highest, in that it was above all other glory, in that it ex tended to all time and in that it wrought such wondrous good. Second. The great results to the earth. It would result in pence. Strifes, thorns and t'.'istles were abounding. Tho earth was torn-and bleeding by constant contention. Wilh Christ came peace. The re&ult would bo universal peace. Third. The effect on the individ ual man. "Good will toward men," from one another, from God. Out of this good will would finally spring peaco on earth and glory to God in the highest. Dr. Matthew Simpson.

Ifi owning 'ir inr, ini,iirua Vi - ?T PROBABLE WAR LOSSES Canada has been tokl by the British government to be prepared to receive back 1,800 soldiers monthly, of whom 1,700 are invalided by wounds, and 100 suffering from tuberculosis. Can ada has had about 600,000 soldiers at the front. If the war lasts and we get twice that number in the field, we know now regarding our monthly casualties by doubling the casualties of Canada. The percentage is rather higfc, we think, and should be no defi nite guide for mothers to figure the chances of their boys at the front. It must be remembered that many more are wounded and become ill than are killed, so that the percentage ot Kiu b,i eomnared with the nercenUge nf wound! indicated in the foregoing figures is but slight.
