Nam Visa News. Another report is approximately as follows: Hrundle took supper with Mr. and Mrs. Bolt., where his wife was stay ing. All four were Koine; to a dance and Mrs. Holt, anil Mrs. Hrandle were in another room dressing. Hrundle drew a Winchester und shot Holt, thru the check. Holt, fell to the floor dazed und his wife came running into the room. Hrundle shot her through the neck, the ball passing through the jug ular vein. She died utmost instantly. Mrs. Hrundle came into the room and her husband tried to shoot her but Boltz had recovered suiliciently to grapple with Hrandle und keep him from killing his wife. After they had worn each other out Holt, suggested that they throw the gun in the water tunk and call the fight oh". This they agreed to do and then Holt, asked Hrundle to help him take Mrs. Holt, to u bi other's house a mile away, us he thought she had feinted. Hrundle knew she was dead but he went alone; to Mr. Bolt.'s brother's place. Hero Holt, tried to secure u gun with which to kill Hrandle but his brother would not allow him the privilege.

Hrandle seemed to think Mr. und Mrs. Holt, were keeping his wife from returning to him, so he planned to kill all three of them. He went to their home und took supper with them on the pretense of renewing friendship und then took the first opportunity to do Ids dastardly deed, but was only successful in killing one out of three. No further particulars were learn ed ubout the cuse. CELEBRATE FOURTH OF JULY Never have the American people had better reason for celebrating the -Ith of July patriotically und cuthusiustu- ally than on the approaching holiday. Heretofore we have celebrated annu ally the independence anniversary of the United States. Now thut our coun try is lighting for the universal free dom from imperial domination, Amer icans cun celebrate the dawning of a world independence. It is the object of the war, the larger ideal of Amer ican citizenship. To its cause the man hood unit the treasure of the allied nations are committed. The "sane Fourth" movement, under way for some years, but not nlwuys observed, at least not very strictly, ought to be emphasized this year. The boys und men like to celebrate July I with explosions of giant crackers and torpedoes und the various other noise makers, and nt night everyone likes to see the pyrotechnic displays. The Americans usually waste millions of dollars in that sort of demonstration. The "sane Fourth" idea was started because of the many casualties attend ing each year's celebrations. It should be observed now both to prevent in juries to the celebrators and to save money which can be used to help carry on the war. Money spent for a flash of powder and a loud noise in a Fourth of July celebration is needed to explode pow der behind a bullet in a gun aimed at a German. Money spent for a sky rocket to cnturuiii Fourth of July crowds is needed for u "Very Light" flure to illuminate no man's hind or for a rocket to cull for an artillery barrage. Celebrate the Fourth of July by all means, but do it with bund concerts und parades, patriotic exercises, uth letic exhibitions, drills, display of the fluga und with songs and cheering, Then buy war suvings stumps with the money.

A. .STUKK'I, Sheriff of Quay County. LOYALTY IN WAR TI.MU Loyalty in peace times and loyalty in war times are two distinct ihing-. Not much is required to pass the loy alty test when one's coutnry is not at war; a simple compliance with the law is all that is required. But loyalty in war times is not a passive quality. At such a time one may lie without loyalty and still not be disloyal. A person of lhi type will do nothing either to assist or to harm his country. He will not give himself to his country's .service and he will not contribute tiuancial support. Neither will he discourage others from doing this. He will do or say nothing trens onable, and neither will he do or say anything to put heart in the lighting forces or to uphold t lie nation in in struggle. He will be .--imply a pa.--sie onlooker. And that i not being loyal. Our country i. lighting in the most desperate struggle of history. It is a struggle so vast and momentous as to demand the numl complete support of every one of its citizens. Passive loyalty- -the loyalty of peace times is not sullicienl. The brand of loyalty now demanded is the kind that impels one to oiler liimelf und his all, if necessary, that his country may be victorious in the great conflict. Most of us cannot go into the liglit- iig force-; most of Us cannot enter in to those industries directly connected with the war, but all of us can show our neighbors that we have the right brand of patriotism. Our government is urging upon us the necessity of saving as an essential to victory. We are told that there is not enough man power und not sulll cient materials in the country to win a quick victory if we continue to use this man power and these materials us we did belore the war. It is point ed out that there are now more than two million men in the U. S. Army and Navy, and that by August 1 this num ber will lie increased to .'1.111111,(111)1, with a Mcady addition to that number from i hen on. These men not only cease to be producers, but they become con sumers on a vast scale. Thus it is that we are urged to buy only those things which we need in order that we shall not use up labor und waste materials and transporta tion, so vitally necessary to the gov ernment in its war work and so m'l'di needed in the manufacture of things (.--en'. ,nl to the health and elliciency of our citizens. By following the Government's re quest to produce to our maximum ca pacity and to consume us little as pos sible, we shnll give practical expres sion to our loyalty a militant loyalty the brand which stamps us as being 100 per cent, willing to do our part at home by sacrificing, by getting down to u war basis, by backing up our gov eminent with all our strength. With our money suvings we can then buy War Savings Stamps and perform u double service Ity giving the Govern ment current funds with which to buy the labor und materials so much need ed for wur purposes which we have refrained from using. I hat is real loyalty. Ha Tim government has limited each person to pounds of beef a week. loduy was the day set for New Mex ico to start rationing. JUNE 28, FRIDAY, IS W. S. S.

DONATE A CALF TO THE RED CROSS. IT WILL HELP In ordei to enable the cattlemen of the states of Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Utah to assist in the sup port of the American Red Cross, the Mountain Division of thu American Red Cross, with headquarters in Den ver, has recorded in Colorado the cat tle brand A R C to be placed on i la- left side of the animal. All Red Cro- chapters in 'he Mountain Division un authorized to accept heifv calves as contributions from cattlemen to the Red Cross, these calves to be branded A R C and to be cared for by the donor until next January, when they will be delivered to the various chap ters and shipped to the National West ern Stock Show at Denver. At the Stock Show they will be entered in competition for prizes to go to the county where produced, and the cattle sold and the returns delivered to the Red Cross chapters to which the calves were donated. It is expected that the A R C brand of cattle will become well known. The cattle herd without one or more A R C cattle will not be a strictly patriotic herd, lhe A R C brand will be to the cattlemen what the Red Cross flag or other patriotic emblem is to people generally. It is expected that during tile period of the war a large percent age of the calves from these A R C heifers will themselves curry the A R C brand und will continue to add their mite to the mercy fund of the United States to relieve the suffering of this great wur. For further information und rules governing contribution of heifer calves see Mrs. A. D. Catterson or Mrs. W. . Savage, and ask for circular.

That the bill in Congress, which has alieady been ap pioved by the Military Committee, pinpiising to lower the draft age to 18 and raise it to 15, if passed, will very probably affect the acceptance of vol unteers' for the special branches of the i m . i- the opinion of ('apt. F. W. Fonda. I". S, Army Recruiting OHi eer, at this station. Registered men have not been accepted for vduntnr, i-nlistmcnt since Decembei 15, 11)17, noon, and the law just passed requir ing the legistration of young men he. enming "Jl on dates set by proclama tion of tiie President, has taken from them the privilege of volunteering un less they do so before they register, inasmuch as the same orders from the War Department also apply t new legi.-irnnts. Many branches of the Army are now open, requiring men specially qualified not only along tech nical lines, but as skilled laboiers, leamstets. etc., in fact, it does not matter what a man's occupation is, he can lie accepted in some special organ v.ation and very probably assigned to work similar to his occupation in civil life. Many inquiries are now being received daily by the Recruiting Of ficers, in view of the rapid changes being made by the War Department ulfecting the status of volunteers, und men are promptly enlisting in the blanches for which they are best qual ified. In view of the vast ptugram of the War Department, Recruiting 0111 cerrs everywhere are of the opinion that opportunities for volunteers are now greater than ever before, hut that delay on the part of msn who in- nd in volunteer at some indefinite future date may prove a disappoint ment to them, especially due to the limitations that will probably be plac ed upon the Recruiting Officer should he draft ages be lowered and raised. Men between the ages of 18 and 21 and UU and 11 are able at the present time to volunteer. Men who have reached the age of 1M since the 5th of this month may continue to volunteer until the next registration which will probably be three months from now. "THE WARRIOR" The great screen spectacle "The Warrior" with the wonderful Maciste, star of Gnbrielc D'Annunzio's "Cnbir ia." has garnered another record. The picture already has been acclaimed as the most remarkable "punch produc tion ever made, with a record number of genuine "hair-raising" thrills thru out the course of its seven absorbingly interesting reels. Manager Hurley, who will present "The Warrior" to his patrons at the H-H Theatre on July I, feels highly elated at the fact that the feature offering has passed the care ful scrutiny of the National Board of Review without the necessity of n sin gle elimination. This circumstance is most rare in the censoring of feature productions as there is generally one scene to incur the displeasure of the reviewing committee.

UP MASSES OF DEAD Home, Huly, June 20. Italian troops 0,1 this southern part of the Piavo have ' war oiuce maue una announcement today The duke of Aosta's third army con tinues to ndvnnce along the Pinve, in the Capo Sile region, cleaning thu po sitions abandoned by the Austriuns picking up the abandoned war mater ial, burying the masses of dead and reorganizing the entire defence sys tem which had been badly cut up dur ing the lust ten days. Under the fire of Italian machine guns and artillery which were brought up rapidly Monday, the Austrian with drawal across the Piae soon became u disorderly rout. It is estimated the Austrian losses total more thun 1200, 000. It was a terrible sight as the mad dened Austriuns fled under the deluge of Italian bullets and shells. They leaped into the river und grabbed pieces of wood or anything that would aid them; they tied themselves to thu mules und horses but their efforts were in vain, for, as tne enemy troops reach ed the opposite bank, they were again caught by the liie of thu Italian guns 'hich hml '"-'en trained accurately on the eastern bank for some days. In fleeing, the Austriuns left be hind them much wni material. The enemy troops even threw away their rifles and deserted hundreds of ma chine guns winch were to have been used to protect the retirements. It is estimated that the number of Austriuns on the Western bank of tho Piuve when the retreat began, was more than lull.uou. Among 10 prisoners taken on Mon telle, it was obserct: that they be longed to no less than scen ditl'erent legiments. From the first day of the offensive-, Italian morale was of the higlie.se among both the t;oops and the Italian civilian population. Venice appeared to be little concerned over the fact that th enemy was striking in her direction only 20 miles away. How ever, Venice awoke to celebrate the Italian victory. The Austrian reverse in Italy is be coming known within die German lines and is causing depression, according to prisoners captured by the British in France. The German soldiers are surprised ai tiie Austrian defeat as it was be lieved firmly that tiie offensive move ment, intended to administer a knock out blow to Italy, would be a complete success and thereby hasten an early . peace p.iotic addresses and music by the builders will be enjoyable events.
