BODY OF JOE ST A TP
The body of Joe Stapp who wa
killed while in service over seas was
brought to Forgan last night and on
down to Beaver from where a truck
took the coffin to the home of his fath-
S. Stapp, near La Kemp.
Joe was killed while in action in a
fourteen liour bombardment in the
Meuse Argonne Forest in France in
hich the enemies regiment was near-
ly annihilated. Ed. Curt of Forgan
was in the same company, the safe
regiment and not far from Joe Stapp
when the shrapnel struck him. He
had just gone to take a couple of fel-
lows hack to the dressing station and
on his way back was told that Joe had
been hit. Death resulted a few hours
Joe Stapp entered the army in reh-
rurarv of 1917 and was placed in
Company B. of the 334 Machine Ba-
tallion. He was sent across in June
and was killed in October 1918. Mr.
Curt says that Joe was a favorite
among the hoys, being naturally jollt
and absolutely fearless.
Beaver county is mighty proud of
these boys who gave their lives that
e might live on in our own happy se-
curity and freedom. It is to be hoped
that Beaver county will ever keep the
roster of her heroes fresh in memory.
AVE YOU JOINED THE
Beaver is now answering to the
Fourth Red Cross Roll Call. Mrs. P.
L. Thomas has charge of the work in
Beaver City, and Miss Maude 0.
Thomas in the country. The big idea
in this campaign is to get every man
and woman in Beaver county to join
the Red Cross that it may continue in
the health and efficiency campaign it
A large number of women received
the benefit of the training in Home
Hygiene and ('are of the Sick. This
is only one thing that the Red Cross
is doing. The drive against tuberco-
sis is another. Beaver county had an
example last week of a case in which
the Red Cross stepped in to care for
patient that for sohne reason was
not being given the proper treatment.
We know the war is over but pro-
blems still remain and the Red Cross
is gritty enough to undertake them.
All we are asked to do is to take
one dollar membership.

A CHECKING ACCOUNT IS YOUR
GREATEST MEASURE OF DEFENSE
DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST WASTE—Cash is rarely seen save
at the vanishing point. It dwindles, it scatters you know not where.
But you THINK when you write a check. You have a record of
where the money goes. Payments are systematized, expenditures
A CHECKING ACCOUNT PROTECTS YOU against loss of your
money by fire, theft, carelessness, forgetfulness. It means your
funds are safe.
DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST TRICKERY AND MISTAKE—File
your checks. They make indisputable receipts, sparing you twice
payment of bills, for on the back of every cancelled check which
comes back to you is the signature of the person or firm which re-
ceived the money.
BUILD A FORTRESS AGAINST SICKNESS, ACCIDENT AND OLD
AGE—You save a surplus and it will save you sometime. And re-
member, by the way, that writing more deposit tickets than checks
is the secret of both safety and success.
WARD OFF THE INCONVENIENCE AND WORRY A checking ac-
