hli.v have been fighting for three
ch! and are now getting ready for
!heir fourth winter, and if they are
not taken care of nobody can tell
Iwhat will happen to us.
A French soldier of the devast-
Ied region, after being In the war
roue for four months comes out for
ais ten days leave. His clothes are
Uovcred with vermin and torn; his
shoes are out of repair, and his spir
it! are low. He came out to go to
Ms home. But he had no home; his
tome had been swept from the earth
as dean as the floor and his mother
or his wife or his children had gone
be did not know where any more
than you know.
"That Frenchman comes out of tho
trench, and he Is met by your Hed
Cross representative, and he Is taken
to .i structure you have arranged; his
clothes are taken from him and ster
ilised and mended. A bath and a
hair-cut are given him. ami a shave
i he needa It ; If he has whiskers and
wants them trimmed, they are trlro
nn (I He gets throe hours' or three
I days' rest. Then he Is taken to the
place where Tils home was, and there
he finds a structure temporary In
haracter which you have built for
him, and within this structure he
:ini his mother or hie wife or child
ren, whom you have found for him.
He finds them provoded, with food,
with clothing, and with fuel. He
pendi his holiday, and then goes
nek to the trench. What effect do
ou suppose that has had on that
French soldier? It has had the same
effect upon that French soldier that
it would have on you. Frenchmen
sre maile of exactly the same kind
"I i lay as you are made of. They are
usi as susceptible to encouragement
or discouragement as we are. When
he koch back to the trench he stands
there a moment and says: "Thank

When that man takes his place
there, have you ever thought that
he takes the place of one of our

While In town the other day Dave
Craddock called at this office. During
his visit we found that L Wolden
berg. who has been tho contractor on
the mall route from Canyon to Sll
vlee for the past few years, has bid
for the new contract to be let In the
immediate future. Mr. Woldouberg
was approached at one lime by Mr.
Craddock on the proposition of ex
tending the line to Hums and he
stated he would be willing to carry
the mall between Canyon City and
Uuren three times a week for the
same price that he now carries It to
Hilvles six times a week. In fact he
said he would prefer a through line
at that rate than the present one.
Mr. Craddock and his neighbors
are anxious to have mall connections
with this city as this Is the place
they do theft business, the county
seat, the land office, the banks, etc..
and where they bring their stock to
feed during the winter months when
they run short of feed ut home Mr
Craddock was assured of the In-arty
support of this paper and the people
Of Burns In an effort to establish
such a route.

Neglect by any draft registrant
who has been granted deferred class
ification to report to his Ixical Board
within five days any fact that might
change or affect his classification,
win be a very serious matter. Indeed,
for the draft registrant.
The penalty for such forgetfulness
in up to one year In Jail. And gov
ernment appeal agents and tho police
have been Instructed to watch very
closely the status of all registrants
In deferred classes.
As an example, suppose a draft
registrant, who otherwise would be
In Class 1. to have been granted de
ferred classification by reason of his
iiiiployment In a shipyard.
His deferred classification holds
ood only for the lime he Is actu
ally so employed
If ho quits work In the shipyard
or any reason whatsoever, he must
report the fact, within five days of
his quilting to the local board.
if he doesn't report ll, the change
his status Is certain to become

Ien Milan of O. A. 0. Tells House
wives May Meet The Requlrem
inentN of Kood AdmliilMlr.illon
"stealer said than done." Is the
way niuny preplcxed housewives felt
after reading tiiat they would bo re
quired to nil much wheat subsltut
es as wheat products, under the new
POOd Administration order. To help
them out of their difficulty Hie O. A.
C. news editor appealed to Dean Mil
an, of the Home Kconomles depart
ment, for a radical method of meet
ing the requirement.
"The now order stipulates that
the housewives must purchase with
every order of flour an equal amount
of flour substitutes," aald Dean Mil
am, "and of course thoy will want
to use these to the best advantage.
Hut they are not called on to use
them all in bread-making and so may
use part as cereals, In puddings.
"Corn-meal, rolled oats and oat
meal, barley .flour and rice and pota
to flour, may be used In yeast bread
substitutes for 1-4 to 1-3 of wheat ;
flour. The rolled oats especially
make an excellent bread. Bread
with any of these substitutes Is made
precisely as bread without them."
"The use of substitutes as cereals
and breakfast foods makes a pleas
ing change In the menu. By mixing
dried prunes, slightly cooked and
seeded, with the cookt;ig barley
breakfast food or other cereals a
delightful breakfast dish Is obtain
ed. Corn starch may be used to
thicken gravies and svups. A good
cheese pudding Is made by using lay
ers of sliced corn meal mush Instead
of slices of bread."
Attention Is also called to the fact
that even though measure for mea
sure cirn nn ul may eo:it r.bout twice
is much as wheat floi:r, pound for
pound it h:.s the same number of
Oalortee god given same food value.
Hence the use of substitutes Is not
so expensive us it secerns. At any
rate. American soldiers and their
allies Med the flour thus saved, and
all patriotic housewives will see that
they get It as fur us possible.

We have such an organization but
since Carl Welker left there has been
no one to take hold of it and lead

E. C. Kggleston came to this office
this morning and offered to devote
his time to the building up of the
organization if given aid by some in

THKACHKROU8 WOKK OF A UAI
(jeo. Buchanan and wife were In
town the other day and Mr. Duch-
told The Times-Herald of a
fiendish attempt upon the life of a
citizen at Drewsey recently. Merle
McMullen kept a trunk on which a
romblnatiou lock was placed In Uu
building formerly occupied by A. I
Johnson's store. We understand I he
building Is vacant, that Is not OOOtl
pled continuously by any business
or family. He had been there ann
opened the trunk three days previous
,.v with u eornnanlon and at otico
noted that the combination lock had
been removed. He raised the lid
Hnd beheld In the tray of the trunk
the barrel of a 22-callber rifle. Upon
examination it was found to have
been wired stationery to the tray and
with a cartridge In the barrel from
which the bullet had been removed.
The barrel had been completely fill
ed with smokeless powder and tho
muzzel put Into a 6V pound can or
smokeless powder. A string had been
attached to the trigger and run down
to one end of the trunk where a hole
had been bored and the end of tho
string tied to the lid of the trunk so
that ll would dischargo the gun up
on the lid being raised. The neglect
to cock the gun was the only thing
that prevented an explosion that
would not only have killed Mr. Mc
Mullen and his companion but also
have blown up' the building and pos
sibly have killed other people who
chanced to be near.
It was a dastardly attempt on tho
life of Mr. McMullen and one that
might have proven even worse, as
! the trunk might have been opened
by some other person than the one
intended as the victim, or removed
home where the lives of
children would have been added to
Mr. BaObOBM suys the people of
