st the Courier.
The glad tidings that the great war had ended came
to the Courier office at about 6:45 this morning.. Immedi
ately the church bells were rung, the fire department got
busy, a locomotive ran shrieking up and down the track,
and pandemonium broke lose in general.- People shouted,
automobiles and bicycles raced the streets with bells and
cans trailing behind and everything that would make a
noise was brought into play.
Prussianism is crushed America and the allies have
won the kaiser is down and out. We have license to cele
brate everybody get' busy.

basis, as we have our trade established no experimenting.
I learn that some parties were In the county last week ex-
plaining their company's operations. The fact is that the same
f company tried to break the market and lower the butter prioe to.
"J??- You ask them they cannot deny It, The Hazelwood
Company has kept the price to what it Is and we are paying 65
cents now ,
Producers can help themselves by sending butter fat to the
company that has a market tor all their goods and always pay

11 INTERESTS MAY
THE P. & E.
The P. & E. railroad from Med
ford to Butte Falls Is going to be
junked or sold in the very near fu
ture, says the Medford Tribune.
This information from a reliable
source was received In Medford yesterday.
A conference was recently held In
St. Paul between Louis 11111 and oth
er directors of the Hill lines and at
this conference it was decided to
adopt the plan above. The P. & E.
has been operated at a loss of ap
proximately one thousand dollars a
month for the last eight or nine
years. Not being taken over by the
government the owners of the rosd
have decided to get rid of the proper
ty along with all other properties
which are not paying operating expenses.
The only alternative to dismant
ling the road will be a sale prob
ably' to the large timber Interests In
the Butte Falls region. It is prob
able that rather than see their tim
ber landg isolated entirely these tim
ber owners . would Join together to
secure the road and maintain opera
tion, but as tar as known no definite
progress toward this end has been
made as yet.
Some of the timber owners c:alm
the Hill lines will not be allowed to
junk the road and cut off the Butte
Falls district from communication
with the, outside world, but others
point to the fact that small roads In
all parts of the country are being
dismantled at the present time and
sold for junk. It Is probable the
people of Butte Falls and southern
Oregon will Join in a vigorous pro
test against any move to tear up the
P. & E. tracks and destroy commu
nication between the two places.

Henry P. Davidson, chairman Am

weeks inspection trip of Red Cross
in England, . France and Italy, sent
the following telegram calling upon
Red Cross members throughout the
United States to support the Unit
ed War Work campaign. David
son's telegram reads:
"Having spent nearly five weeks
among our men along back of lines
in England, France and Italy I have
had opportunity to observe work of
seven relief organizations. Certain
ly every chapter of the American
Red Cross within the United States,
and Indeed In all other parts of the
world, and all citizens or the United
States, would contribute to work of
the seven organizations if they
could appreciate its Importance. Our
nearly two million men are far
from home, In strange lands, and
need as men never needed before
Just the things the seven organiza
tions supply. I am, therefore, confi
dent the entire Red Cross, conscious
of its obligation,, will cooperate with
enthusiasm and seal on the coming

They came into a desolated village. Not a soul was in sight. '
"We're out o luck!" they said. And then they turned a comer. '
"There it is!" they cried. , It was a sign on the only building

these seven recognized organizations.
"Who said we're out o' luck?" theyshouted. "We're in again!"
More than 500 tons of supplies leave our ports every week
under the direction of these seven agencies just so that wherever
Che American soldier happens to be, he will find good cheer and
comfort waiting for him. A splendid army of uniformed
workers are now engaged in this work and General Pershing
asks that at least a thousand more be sent each month.
