FIRE CAUSES LOSS
Last Thursday afternoon about
two o'clock, fire was discovered
between tho waljs 'if the Mrs.
Nora Moody residence south of
Richland and word telephoned to
various neighbors soon brought a
'ciowd to tho scene but in spit
of all that could be dune the build
j'ing.was soon a -mass of ruins.
A part qf the contents of the
lower roofi.s were saved.
Mrs. Moody cat Hod 2,000 in
surance on tho building and con
tents, which sum is equal to only
about two-thirds of the total loss
sustained. Had jt not been for
tho abundance of water available
duo to tho overflow of Little Eagle
the loss would have been greater
as the adjacent buildings could
not have been saved.
Mrs. Edmond Hall with her
two'dny-old baby were taken
to. tho residence of Dan Jones
and suffered little if any as the
result of exposure incident to oe
ing moved. Mr; and Mrs. Hall
lost practically everything they
possessed in the way of clothing.

uously for twenty-one days and
then given fourteen days rest (?)
then sent back to the battle line
where ho remained until the
armistice was signed,
Rav escaped without a scratch
although his comrades fol all
around him by the score. The
fighting was done over territory
which tho British, French and
other nines considered .imnreg
nable as the Germans had held it
since the war started and had
trenches, machine gun nests and
ail manner of fortifications in
every available spot. Ray said
tho carnage was something in
It will be remombered that Ray
was reported missing in action
at ono time. He cannot account
for this unless it was when he was
carryiug up ammunition to a ma

tight place and the men detailed
as carriers had either been killed
When asked if lie could narrate
his closo calls, ho said that while
they were probably many ho was
