JOHN D. IS SORROWFUL
SINCE WIFE IS DEAD
CLEVELAND, O., Aug. 20.
There's a changed master at Forest
HIM, the big estate of the world's
richest man.
That's what John D. Rockefeller's
closest friends are saying, after vis
its to the oil king's estate. The old
attendants know what has, caused the
change, they say. It Is because their
nilslress has gone. For the flrBt
time, Rockefeller tramps and drives
about his estates without the com-
panlonshlp of his wife, who died last
February. -
MoBt every morning, about 9 o'clock
Rockefeller walks slowly down from
the big house to the lily pond at the
foot of the long north slope. He
stands for a moment watching the wa
ters, then turns sadly away.
In past years. Rockefeller and his
wife used to stroll to the pond, arm
in arm, every morning after break
fast, which was served promptly at
7 o'clock. Attendants tell, too. how
the changed master broke down and
'rled at his first breakfast at Forest
Hill when he saw the empty chair.
Rockefeller formerly played golf
with keen delight almost every day.
He seldom plays now and when he
does, the old-time swing Is not there.
"Under every tree near my house
here I see pictures of children p'ay
Ing and merry family groups," Rocke
feller tells visitors. "I am happiest
here."

Facts Wanted Regarding Crop
Yields; Farm Reports Desired
So much doubt exists this year regarding the wheat
yield that the East Oregonian will endeavor to secure
much exact data from first hand sources. With this aim
in view farmers are asked to fill out the blank below as
soon as their harvesting has proceeded sufficiently to
give them an accurate line on what the yield will be. By
special arrangement the information gathered in this
manner will be tabulated and given to the government
crop reporting officials, thus helping them adjust their
estimates as to the actual yield. It is desirable to get the
exact truth as to the situation and the co-operation of
farmers will be appreciated.
Please fill out the following blank and mail the same
to the East Oregonian. If you prefer to 'phone, do so.

ID LIFE IF 11TEII
OF SEN. HINT WINS 111
VICTORIA US IN FLANDERS
BY WILBUR S. FOR E.ST.
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
LONDON, Aug. 19. (By Mail)
The charmed life of Lieutenant J. G.
Smyth, 15th Laudhiana Sikhs, and
the manner in which his almost fan
atical bravery won for him the Vic
toria Cross was described today in of
ficial dispatches from northern
France.
Followed by ten volunteer Indian
Sepoys of his regiment, which held a
reserve trench May 17 near Ferme
Du Bols, Smyth covered a perilous
Journey with desperately needed am
munition for comrades who had taken
a portion of an enemy trench but who
faced annihilation from an impend
ing reinforced attack.
Telling that with the break of day
It was ascertained that the German
section of this forward trench was
packed with men ready to attack, the
narrative continues:
The situation was desperate. It
was resolved to attempt to relieve it
by sending up a bombing party from
the reserve trenches. The nature of
this undertaking may be gauged from
the fact that two attempts had been
made by the Highland Light Infan
try and both had failed; the officers
in command being killed and the par
ties having suffered very severely.
However, the position was critical,
and Lieutenant Smyth, a young offi
cer who. In spite of his years only
numbering twenty-one had already
been brought to notice for his gal
lantry, was ordered to take command
of the party.
Volunteers were called for and
were immediately forthcoming. The
alacrity with which the demand was
responded to speak volumes for the
spirit of the regiment, for each man
felt sure he was proceeding to almost
certain death.
Lieut. Smyth and his little party
started at 2 p. m. to cover the 250
yards which intervened between them
and our trench, taking with them two
boxes of 98 bombs.
The ground to be covered was ab
solutely open, devoid of natural cover.
The only possible shelter from the
frightful fire which met the party as
soon as they were over the parapet,
was an old broken down trench which
at the best of times was hardly knee
deep, but now In places, was filled
almost to the top with the dead bod
ies of Highland Light Infantry, Wor
cester, Indians and Germans.
Dropping over our parapet they
wriggled their way throuKh the mud,
pulling and pushing the boxes with
them, until they reached the scanty
shelter of the old trench, where they
commenced the progress which for
sheer horrors can seldom have been
surpassed.
Pagris (ropes) had been attached
to the front of the boxes. By means
of these the men in front pulled th
boxen along over and through the
dead bodies while those In rear
pushed with all their might, the
whole party lying flat.
-At any moment the bombs might
explode.
The whole ground was hissing with
the deluge of rifle and machine gun
flre. while the air above them was
white with the puffs of shrapnel.
To the anxious watchers in the
rear it seemed Impossible that a single
man should win through.
DATES.
held on Sept. 23, 24, 25.
a
After they had accomplished a mere
twenty yards of their deadly Journey
Sepoy Fatten Bltmh rolled over
wounded, followed In the next eighty
yards by Sepoy Sucha Singh, UJagar
Singh and Sunder Singh.
This only left Lieutenant Smyth
and six men to get the two boxes al
ong. Under ordinary circumstances
lour men were required to handle a
box of bombs. However, thes:e were
super-men, and the thought of their
comrades in dire necessity ahead of
them put fresh heart Into them. They
crawled on and on, until Just before
they reached the end of the trench,
the party had dwindled to two, Lieu
tenant Smyth and Sepoy Lai Singh.
Of the remainder of the band of he
roes, two of the Sepoys had been
killed and three wounded.
The second box of bombs had to be
abandoned, and to haul even one box
along In the face of such difficulty
appeared an Impossible task.
Still pulling and hauling, Smyth
and Lai Singh emerxed wriggling
painfully along into the open where
they were met with an increased
blast of fire.
Miraculously surviving this, they
crawled on, only to be confronted
suddenly by a small stream which
was too deep to wade. Across it lay
the direct line to safety. The ordi
nary man. under such circumstances.
would have probably stopped, but
these crawled on and on in full view
of the enemy, now at close quarters,
until they came to a point In the
stream which was Just fordible.
Across this they struggled w'ith
their valuable burden and In a few
yards they t were amongst their
friends in our trench, both untouch
ed, although their clothes were per
forated with bullet holes.
For his bravery, Lieutenant Smyth
was awarded the Victoria Cross and
each of the brave men with him the
Indian Distinguished Service Medal.
The men In the regiment believe
that Lieutenant Smyth bears a charm
ed life for he has had his cap blown
off by shells five .times, has had
bullets through his clothes, and late
ly while lighting a cigarette, the
match was taken out of his fingers by
a bullet.
Gun, Club or Fence
Best Against Rabbits
The best way to kill rabbits Is to
shoot them or hit them on the head
with a club, declares Acting Chief
Nelson to the federal biological sur
vey. Itepresentative Sinnott took up the
ma.ter with the United States depart
ment and this is the answer he re
ceived. "i'cisoning has proved of value lo
cally but of little or no avail In lo
calities where green food continues
abundant during the winter. Rabbit
I roof fencing is undoubtedly the best
means for protecting rrnra frm
Jarkrabblts. but the deoartment h.i.
no authority to construct such fences
on patented lands. We can suggest
no more practical method for con
trolling these pests than rabbit-tight
fencing and organized drives or hunts
In which the animals are destroyed.'
