"Undo Bjllie" called at the
News office Saturday and among
othor subjects spoken of was the
exceptionul inducements ofored
the young men of today to enter
U, S. service. ' "During tho war
with Mexico in '40, " said hp, "we
were paifj 57 in Kold a month,
but whpn'we were jn Mexjco our
olficers genprally drew tlp gold
and bought Mexican dollars, with
which they paid us soldiers and
most of that coin was counter
feit. In fact, orjee when I drew
two months pay every one of the
fourteen dollars was counterfeit,
but mude the greasers tajfp 'em
just the same.''

Death Claims Young Wife.
Thd entire community was
shocked last ThUrsday'aftcrnoon
when tho word came that Mrs.
Ira Bradford had passgd away at
the hospital in Bakeras it was
generally supposed thut she was
recovering nidely from the effects
of the operation undergone sev
eral days previously. Death was
the result of complications which
sot in but u short time before
the end. Her mother Mrs. W.
P. Williams, was on the way to
visit her, belicvipg that she was
convalescing, but before reach
ing Baker death had came.
The remains we're brought back
to Eagle Valley and Interred in
our'beautiful cemetery on Satur
day afternoon, the fpnpral ser
vices beit.g held at the Methodist
church, Rev. J. M, Jpbnson offi
ciating. Edna Ellen Williams was born
in Eagle Valley on Sept. , 1900,
and was u daughter of Mr. and
W. P. Williams. On June 17,
19,17, she was married to I. W.
Bradford, but had always resided
in this community,
By her parting thero is left
motherlpss a little babe but four
months old. She is also survived
by her husband, her parents, and
four brqthers and three sisters.
It is sad indeed when death
comes to one so young 03 Edna,
and the unexpectedness plf her
passing makes it more so. That
the bereaved relatives have the
heartfelt sympathy of the pntire
community was clearly evidenced
by the largo crowd presantatthp
funeral as well as by the numer
ous floral offerings.
Another Soldier Returns.
Gene Gibson returned to the
Valley, Monday, having received
his discharge at Camp Lowjs last
Saturday. Gent! enlisted on June
9, 1917, and was assigned to Batt.
B, Uth Field Artillery, landing
in France on July 2G, 1918. He
was at the front for about three
months and under continuous
shell fire frpm Oct. 25th until
Nov. 11th on the Argonne Meuse.
He had many close calls but came
through unhurt; was struck on
tho. leg by a fragment of high
explosivo shell but not with suffi
cient force to do injury other
than bruise the flesh. He says
the llth F, A. did great work
but sustained a great many cas
ualties. He gives great praise to
the Salvation Army, Rod Cross
