Mrs. E. 0. Wilson's Husband
Tells Story Filled With
HAD TO SACRIFICE HOME
Friends and Neighbor! Called and Of-
fered Encouragement and
HOMB. hope nnd money Rime.
A loving husband and n little
daughter tearfully waiting for
the dread summon* which would take
away wife and mother.
That, In brief, describes the scene
enacted one October day, a year ngo,
when E. 0. Wilson and his little
daughter snt In n darkened room await"
tng the end they thought near.
This chapter In the story of the Wil-
son family Is one of sorrow nnd
Buffering, pathos nnd human Interest.
It Is one which touched the hearts of
friends nnd caused them to pour out
sympathy to a sorrowing husband.
Five years ago E. O. Wilson, bis wife
Wil child were a happy family. They
mnved to Atlnntn from Abbeville, S. 0.,
bo Mr. Wilson could accept a position
on a newspaper.
Mr. Wilson prospered nnd the family
moved Into a little home of their own.
Mrs. Wilson took an Interest In
church work and In the Woman's Aux-
iliary of the Typographical union. Her
future looked bright.
It was In the early part of 10ir? that
the blow fell. Rut let Mr. Wilson
tell the stoi-y. He can do It better, be-
cause every detail is indelibly stamped
upon his memory.

old daughter. 1 have been n printer
for sixteen years and am a member of
the Typographical Union.
"It Is with n sense of gratitude for
being permitted to have with me today
my dear wife that I am voluntarily
making this statement. I want every-
body interested to know that It comes
from the bottom of my heart.
"During the spring of 1013 when I
thought that nothing could impair my
happiness, the blow fell. My wife, un-
til that time healthy and strong, wns
stricken with lllnem. She was weak
and nervous nnd nt times had dread-
ful smothering sensations to the point
of fainting. She would have fenrful
headaches, pains in her back and over
her kidneys and her Joints achejl all
the time. She got so bad off that she
couldn't do her housework nnd hnd to
take to her bed. She didn't know what
!t was to get a good night's sleep.
"I called a doctor who treated her
eight weeks and she showed no Im-
provement. I took the advice of an-
other doctor nnd my wife was operated
upon twice nnd spent 17 weeks in two
hospitals with several weeks of nursing
at home between operations.
"She got wenker nnd weaker. I wns
desperate. My savings were gone. I
wns In debt. So I sacrificed my home.
"Driven frantic by my thoughts, I
called In three Atlanta specialists.
This was along in October, 1915. My
wife wns n shadow of her former self.
They told me she could not possibly
live more than five days.
"The five days passed and, although
she still lived, she grew weaker nnd
wenker nnd finally I wns told she
would die within the next few days.
She got where she wns too wonk to
talk nnd could not ent. I looked for
the end at any time.

Oklahoma City.—Oklahoma City's
patriotic meeting Sunday, the answer
to Senator Owen's inquiry as to where
Oklahoma stood on the war situation
was attended by fi.OOO people, all that
could possibly crowd into the hall
while other thousands stood outside.
From every station and calling, men
and women gathered at the great
meeting in the Auditorium, shouted
a stentorian "aye" from 6,000 throats
at the Impromptu voicing of the reso-
lution by Judge C. 11. Stuart. It was
a glorious finish to a glorious day.
"We are not guilty of this war,"
shouted S. Prince Freeling, attorney
general of the state, at the outset of
his address on "Patriotism." "We con-
tributed nothing to its cause. The
historian who finally sums up the ele-
ments that entered into this struggle
will find nothing but glory on the
record of the United States.
' Desired to Be Let Alone.
"We desired only to be let alone.
We sought no territory; invaded no
rights. We demanded the privilege
only of working out our destiny un-
molested of any kaiser or king on
earth. We sought only the reward
promised by the Master in his words,
'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they
shall be called the sons of God.'
"We have no quarrel with the Ger-
man people as Buch. Our quarrel is
with the little war party that has
sought to impose kultur on the entire

N. Leecraft and others spoke. The
answer to Senator Owen was the res-

Upon receipt of the information,
Colonel Roy Hoffman, commander of
the regiment, and Adjutant-General
Earp lost no time In waiting for the
official order, but began preparations
for the mobilization. As stated in an
official order received by Adjutant-
General Earp, the mobilization site
will be Fort Sill.
An appeal to the patriotic men ot
this state to uphold Oklahoma's name
by enlisting in the national guard was
made by Adjutant General Earp, fol-
lowing unofficial notification that the
guard had been called into service
"Other states have been conducting
recruiting campaigns the same as we
have," said Earp, "but I am informed
that they have been more successful
than wo have.
1,000 More Men Needed.
"Oklahoma should show a willing
ness to nerve and stand by the presi-

"We have now about 830 men in the
Oklahoma guard. The minimum

Mangum. — Thirty-six enlistments
for a company of light artillery were

Enthusiasm at Wewka.
Wewoka.—The call for mobilization
