It lios come to my notice that
for sonie time past the people of
Eaifls Valley and Lower Powder
sections have been killing Chinese
1'hcasants. Jt s certainly with
much regret that I receive these
reports. I have heretofore placed
the utmost confidence in tho
sportsmen of tltfcse sections and
certainly have given them no
cause to complain of my treat
ment of them. I do not follow
people on their camping trips to
see if I can make an arrest for
some trivial matter and have oth
erwise shown that I believe in
the old adago that at least nine
out of ten men are honest.
These birds wero raised and
liberated in your sections at a
great expense to the State and
you promised that you would give
therp the protection necessary
until such time as an open season
wou'd bo warranted. You have
not done so and have broken faith
with your State and thtse that
reposed confidence jn you. Do
you think that the man who
breaks the game law is better
than the man who steals your
stock? The game law s just as
sound a? any other law, and de
serves tie safjie consideration.
I still believe that I am right in
thinking that nine out of ten of
you are honest and law-abiding
citizens and am going to make an
appeal to you all as friends and
lovers of tho great out""of doors
to assist nip jn theMurlher pro
tection pt ypur game. J as "war
den wish to be considered your
servant, to assist you in keeping
your streams and hills replenished
with game, not as an enemy and
spy as some would lead me to be
lieve. I therefore ask you to co
operate with myself and the game
department in the enforcement
of the game code, and will offer
$50.00; resvard for any informa
tion that will lead to the arrest
and conviction of any one found
guilty cf killing Chinese Pheas
ants out of season.
Sportsmen 1 Show me that my
confidence in you has not been
betrayed. Very sincerely yours,

AN APPEAL TO ALL
Thru the kindr,es3 of Mr. Thorp
1 desire to make an appeal to all
the people of Eagle Valley.
It js more than likely that on
account of tho influenza epjdemic
we can have no Sunday School a'rid
church sprvjees next Sunday.
1 am.asking that wehavesome
form of worship in every home at
the hour of eleven o'clock next
Sunday hiofping. At that (hour
we will have the church bells
ring, and tho you are not expect
ed to go to the churches, please
give at least a few minutes time
jn meditation and prayer that we
may all come in closer relation
with tho Divine Being. If you
do nothing more than read a les
son from the bible and lift your
heart silently to God, our maker
and judge, that He may speak to
us out of the infinite and out of
His written worJ, it will help us
to "keep the home fires burning. "
There are so many reasons for
dojpg thj3: Our nation, heartland
hand w'ith'our aljies, is in a terri
ble struggle for world-wide, prin
ciples of righteousness. Our boys
are freely giving their lives for
us. (Shall we not pray for them?)
Hundreds of thousands of our
people in America among our civil
population, as -wen as-many in
our training camps, are sick and
many of them dying; some Eagle
Valley boys are sick there.
uur war wonc is menaced in
many ways, and the conditions
add veiy greatly to the heavy
burdehs pf pur President and all
our officers, Tjjey are unusually
Shall we not remember the
boys on the American sector in
There is reason for thanksgiv
ing as well: Remember what has
been done on every battle front.
The editor nf the Evening Tele
gram, in writing pf the recovery
of Belgium and other victories,
says: "True a temporary ban
rests on church gatherings, but
we can give thanks to. God in our
h-mes and rejoice with exceed
ing joy," . .
I will suggest that you read the
85th Psalm, with the 8th verse as
the golden text.
I am praying that the Spirit of
God may direct us all,
J. M. Johnson.

Words of Consolation.
October 14, 1918.
Dear Mr. Jeffords:
I write just a nqtet tot tell, you
that I visited several times with
your son before his death.
Nurses, doctors, and all who vis
ited him, took a special liking to
him for he'sffemed; jso clean,"
friendly and good natured. The,
nurses did work so hard to save
Harry fought well for his life;,
as well as any njan ever did on
the battle front.
A man who has the disposition
and courage that he had must
have a good father and mother.
Sacrifices these days are great,
whether at home or on the front.'
May God's blessings rest upon
you in your sorrow. My prayers
are with you as they were with
your boy. Yours sincerely,
N. F. Sanderson,
