There are some people in this
community who lightly, nay even
scornfully, speak of our boys in
service who have not heen "sent
over seas," and of those who are
' across" but were not in battle,
To these 3ef-appoin ted critics
we offer this extract from a letter
received from a boy in service:
"Othnr homo boys are in Eng
land, Ireland, France, Siberia,
or some oiner country: some are
on battleships on the ocean. I
am in an organization that will
not ue moved, win ot course
hate to come back and have to
listen to the others tell of their
experiences while I have only
seen camp life, but Ave do jn
THE AKMY WHAT WE ARB TOLD."

Mrs. Clarence Bogart is in re
ceipt of a note from her brother,
Asa Hyde, written in France on
Nov. 25th. Asa was driving an
artillery ammunition truck when
the armistice was signed, and in
part says: "I am living in a de
serted French village. It is sure
great not to hear the roar of the
big guns and shells all the time.
Silence is a blessed spund to us
boys, you bet,"

To Our Subscribers and Friends:
As all our readers are aware, from and after this date tho price
of the News will be $2.00 per yvar payable ?.rictly in advance.
While federal restrictions have been withdrawn to a certain
extent since the armistice was signed, no rcductipn has been made
in price of paper, ink, postage, or living expenses. ; ' -
Our readers are moslly farmers and stockmen, and none will,
deny they are getting morn for their products than ever beforef'inV
fact, there is no line of business or employment in the community
except in our own cage, where earnings Have not increased during
the past two years. 1.50 per year for the News in ipi6-17 was
a much higher price than $2.00 5s now, compared with other prjees'
The editor rune the News business in practically the same way
a man, runs a farm, store, or other business. If the people want
what we have on hand or produce, we; want th.em to have it. If
they do not want it or have no use for it. thon we do not want
them to buy it. Whenever enough of the people of Eagle Vahey
decide the News is not worth $2.00 a year the editor will quit edit
ing (with very few regrets) and go ta selHncr something that is in
demand. If perchance your verdict would be for us to quit,, we
will return to each subscriber every cent due on ad a nee subscrip
tion, for we want nothing that is not ours.
There are many subscriptions which expire within the next
two months, all will be notified as have been those whose subscrip
tions have expired during the past six months. There arc n any
whose paper waj stopped several weks ago by order of federal
authorities; there are others who like to read it but are now bor
rowing their neighbors, und also many more whose name should
be on our subscription list. To these, in a large part, we will Ie
decide what will be our future course.

Portland, Ore., Dec. 1, 1918.
Editor of Eagle Valley News:
While here on a visit to my
brother, John H. Daly, he in
formed me he had promised Wash
Moody some years ago to write
up the early settlement of Eagle
Valley but had neglected to do so,
and today, Sunday, I will comply
with his promise, but our old and
mutual friend Moody will not bo
able to read it, although it may
bo of interest to many now living
in the Valley.
Very truly yours,
H. S. Daly.
