Mr. Claud Montgomery, a son of Mr. and Mrs Scott Montgomery, left here some months ago for Wards-wortOhio, where he was employed in a match factory, and where he was a valuable assistant until ten days ago h, Con-ove- y, y, x, when he became a victim of typhoid fever. He and his friends were hopeful at start, but on Wednesday morning of last week he was much worse and his parents, wife and son, this place, were notified that he was in a serious condition. His father, wife and little son left immediately for his bedside, but he lived only a few hours after their arrival, a dispatch reaching here Friday night that he was dead. The remains arrived Monday, and many friends went to the Montgomery home to view the body and to express sympathy for those who had been bereft of a husband, father, son and brother. Claud Montgomery, had he lived until March would have been thirty-fou- r years old. He was a man of correct habits and very attentive to business entrusted to him. He had been a salesman for various merchants in Columbia, all speak of him in the highest terms. 3trictly honorable and at all times at his po3t of duty. He leaves a wife and one son, father and mother and one sister. The funeral services were held at the Baptist church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. O P. Bush, Tueseay morning at 10 a. m , the deceased being a member of that religious body, many relatives and friends being present, all in the profoundest sympathy for those who had been so sorely grieved. After religious exercises the remains were conveyed to the city cemetery there to remain until the resurrection morn. May God comfort the widow and little son, father, mother and sister, is the wish of this entire community. Church Loyally.

The moral effect of this is direct and easily recognized, observes the Omaha Bee. The "smart" soldier is a good soldier and reflects in his hearing and attitude the lessons of his training. He is alert, resourceful and in all ways dependable and efficient. The American army does not stress this beyond reason, for it is traditional to retain as much of the individual qualities of the men as is compatible with need for concerted action. This policy has been of immense value in developing self-reliance and initiative, the chief characteristics of the American soldier. Proper relaxation essential to personal comfort is always permitted, and the combination of this element with that of disciplinary routine produces the best fighting organization the world has ever know u. Most people would bay that play's first requisite was that it should consist of something one doesn't have to do. Play i& in reality, however, of all sorts and descriptions. Those that produce something useful besides giving rest are greatly to be preferred. There are many sorts equally stimulating to the mind and to the body and productive of valuable results. One essential to beneficial play Is that it be wholesome and be performed In a healthful environment, that is, where we have pure moving air of the right temperature and preferably sunlight. The body should be maintained in such position as to permit an even circulation of the blood and normal respiration. The object of the exercise would otherwise be very much discounted. The air carries food to the blood which it furnishes to the tissues, and the blood In turn takes away the debris and returns it to the outside atmosphere. This will make plain to any reader the necessity of what has been said about the proper environment In which to exercise. Unless the blood is supplied with what nature has provided for her normal function, the digestive system will fail and the body will be wanting In nourishment. When this condition takes place man becomes susceptible to the disease germs that are ever present in the atmosphere. The greatest safety is to he found in keeping up the resistance. Various types of work properly adjusted will often substitute for what is generally known as play. For instance, one's brain center may become weary at a monotonous occupation, and a decided change of occupation, notwithstanding it be what we usually call work, will permit the first brain works. But we come back to the fact that what most people rogard as play is an occupation that tli-are not required to perform, and, it would seem from a psychological standpoint, to give greater rest if it he an occupation that is particularly uselos from the standpoint of producing economic results. Therefore there should be time set aside in the work of the day, no matter whether It be varied or not, when the environment may be changed and play should be taken up. I speak of games in a broad sense. For instance, after sitting at a task for a given number of hours, a walk In the open air, the body held erect and the limbs swinging so as to produce circulation, and attention given to surroundings so that the mind may be occupied and contented, constitutes one of the best kinds of play, preferably performed In company. In these times It is well to remember the simple sayi-- g of the old days that nil work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. v off he did go At the top of his speed, to the regions below.

Byng's drive was a man of military age who had hidden in a cellar for three years to escape the Germans and had been fed by his wife an extra ration of food allowed her because she had a baby. This man is thirty-fiv- e years old, and in the ordinary course would have been arrested and sent to a prison camp as soon as the Germans entered the town. He did not want to leave his wife and baby and so hid in a secret place in the cellar, thereby making himself liable to the death penalty if detected. German officers came to live in his house, and daily he heard them tramping about above him. In accordance with the custom, this house and all others were searched every little while to see if anything was concealed, but the Germans never discovered his hiding place.

It was a Hip Van Winkle shop. Most of the articles in its stock were e day a half of the fashions of century or more old. More than eighty years ago John Moser opened the "em- -' porium."

Forty years ago he died, rich, and left his business to his two maiden daughter-- . There was no need that it should bring in a profit.

In breeding each spring, he uses eggs from selected hens mated with good show cockerels. Beginning in late winter, all the available broody hens are given eggs. Sometimes as many as 25 are sitting at once. All the eggs he cannot handle with hens himself, he "lets out," as far as possible, to farmer friends.

The presistent attacks of the Irish Germans and among U3 on Great Britain since the beginning of the war have also been directed toward making France, Canada, the United States, and every one else possible dissatisfied with Great Britain's share in the war. The facts do not substantite this charge. Great Britain has 45,000,000 population, in contrast with for France, 36,000,000 for Italy, 175.000,000 for Russia and somewhat more than for us. This 44.000,000 has furnished a far larger proportion of the naval strength and shipping than any other nation, and has done this from' the beginning of the war. This has also necessitated bearing most of the odium attached to the blockade which was for the general benefit of all the Allies as well as England. From the beginning, also they have furnished more money than any other nation. In the first two years of the war they did not furnish as many men as either France or Russia, but at present the British army in France is about as large as the French. The Brit ish have, besides an army in Egypt, another as Saloniki (as have also the French) and another in Mesopotamia. Moreover, the British Isles have furnished as many men in proportion and suffered is great losses as any of their colonies, besides putting forth an extraordinary industrial effort. The World's Work. anti-English 39,-000,000 "Private Peat" a veteran of the European war, in an address at Lexington, told how he woke, wounded in a Red Cross camp. Cries were heard, he said, and he thought he was in Germany. He did find, he declared, that the man screaming, was a "fat German with a wounded arm." "Across the room," he pictured, a little Cockney boy, a drum mer not nore than 16 years old, seated on a chair. H is leg was cut off, his face gashed, his arm fallen at- hi3 side. In his mouth was a cigarette and he was cracking a joke. That shows the difference between the Ally and the Hun. The doctor came in. He went first to the German. That shows the way our Rad Cross treats our enemy. The German, crying, received attention. When the doctor finished the drummer boy had fallen in his chair and was dead." - V. .
