PRINTER FLEW THE COOP.
If The Herald is short of news this
wiek (and ills) we will have to ask
tlie indulgence of oar readers. We
hustled cround last week and prepared
most of our last issue before we left
for Oklahoma City to spend a week
nnd went away thinking that every-
thing was 0 K and would run along
smoothly until our return but. it
soems we ht.d no sooner left our
'sanctum sanctorum than one of our
printers decided to get in one more
celebration before the "bone dry law"
went Into effect and finally wound up
by ''blowing'' hi Job beforeour return
0. 0. "CnfJTwn our otrTer printer
stayed on the job acd worked man-
's fully to keep thing going but the days
.Vtftid nights were not long enough and
the work necessarily got "balled up'.
With ODly two day we could hardly
i;ot up a readable paper however we
havedone the belt we could under the

BACK FROM GRAND CHAPTER.
The editor of The Herald and Milt
Erma Crabtree returned Monday night
from Oklahoma City at which place we
hid been as delegates from the Beaver
Chapter 0. K. 8. in attendance at
Grand Chapter which convened in that
city the Jth acd continued until the
12th. We enjoyed our trip to the city
of course but most of all the work of
Graod Chapter the benefits of which
are belt known to thoieof the Order of
the Eastern Star. We cauDOt pay too
much in praise of the good work which
our Grand Officers have 'done the pan
year and it certainly was a pleasure to j
sit in Grand Chapter with those able)
women and note the earnestness and
zeal with which they carried on the'
proceeding They had the right con-
ception of the high ideals for which
the Order stands and one could not
fit in Chanter with them without
being imbued with a desire to do nvire
wnlr .ill linKa. nnknlil ilia ti.tn.lnl..
which every true Eastern Star realties
the i obligated to exemplify and pro-
mote. We do not know a better stlm-
ului for those who might hae grown
cold in the cause than a visit to Grand
Chapter. It stirs one up and makes
them want to do something.
GLEE CLUB PIE SUPPER A SUCCESS.
The H 8. Glee Club girls gave a pie
supper at the new grade school build-
ing Friday night of last week to raise
money with which to help defray their
expenses to Alva at which place they
will enter the State Glee Club Contest
for the Northwestern division. They
were well patronized and about f 23.00
I was secured toward the fund.
On say can you see by the dawn's early light
What tojiruudl) we hailed at the twilight's last gloaming
Whose broad stripe and bright stars thro' the perilous! fight
O'er the rampart we wntuhtd were so gnllnnlly lrtnmui?
And the roclots red glare the-bombs bursting in'nir
inv' proof thro' the night thal our flog was still there.
Oh My docs that stnr-spanglMinniier yet wac

On the shore dimly seen thro' the niists of the deep .
When the foe's lmuphty host in dri ad silcnoo reposes
What is that which the breeze o'er the towering steep
As it fitful) blows half conceals half disuloM s?
Now it catches the gham of the morning's1 rlrst b'-am '
In full glorj reflected now shim h on the stream :
'Tis the tt.ir-spangleil banner; oh long may it wn
O'er tlm land of the free anil the home of the brave 1
And win re W the band who io nuntingly swore
That th havoc of war and the Initio's confusion
A home ami a country should leuvc us no more?
Their blood hut. washed out their foul footsteps' jiollution.
No refuge eould sae tho hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or thl' gloom'of the grac:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the freo and the home of the brave.
Oh thus be it over when freemen shall stand

And this be our motto : ''In God is our trust !"
And the etar-spangkd banner in triumph shall wave

Our Boys and Girls
It is with no small degree of pride nd yet not without
heartache that we report ihif. week the enlistment of two of our
fine young men in the "service of Uncle Sam and the identification
with the American Red Cross Society of one of oar brightest and
most capable young ladies. These young people are Charles
Miles son of Mr. and Mrs J. O. Miles who enlisted in the Army;
William Moore son of Mr and Mrs I. W. Moore who enlisted in
the Na'vy and Miss Reola Mansfield daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
B. H. Mansfield who has become a member of the American Red
Cross Society. All were students of 0. U. and among tho bright-
est of their classes.
Beaer people are proud oi thes'e young people who have so
e.irly responded to the call of their country and thelf progress
and advancement which is sure to come will be watched with
earnestness on the part of all who know them. The Herald wishes
them God speed. We are proud of you ' Charles William and
Sheriff Jim Couch and Underrherjff

Alester to which place they had gone
having in custoday J). 0. McNeal

itentiary. McMeal was safely lodged

IT PAID TO ADVERTISE.
That it pays to advertise in The
Herald was demonstrated twice in this
office this week in fact it pays so well
that all that was necessary in these
two instances was merely to order the
ad. Before we had time to get the
matter in 'type the owners for two
lost articles which were to be adver-
tised were located. Kev L. L. Shaw
lost tn auto casing tube and rim.
He came in and placed the ad and
went out on the street. In a few
minutes he bad located the tame. He
also had found an auto hood and while
In advertised that fact. The next
day the owner called for the hood Oh
it pays to advertise in The Herald all
right. Try it and be convinced.

SHALL CHICKENS RUN AT LARGE.
We ha've been asked by a member of
the Town Board to ascertain if possi-
ble through the columns of The Her-
ald if the people of Beaver want an
ordinance prohibiting chickens from
running at large. Owing to extensive
gardening being urged on account of
war and threatened food shortage it
has been thought by some that it
might be well to prohibit chickens
running at large.
Speaking for one The Herald is
inclined to the belief that there is
more rioney to be made from chick-
ens than there is from gardens in Bea-
ver owing to the condition of our soil
the scarcity of rainfall and the inad-
equate city water supply which St also
prohibitive on account of the rate.
The eggs and meat from a small flock
of chickens to our mind would do
more toward iccreaslnc the food sup-
ply than would the gardening which
we might be ablto do. We believe
that more people could engage in rais-
ing chickecs than could garden nnd
that many of those wha wished to
raise chicRens would not be able to do
so were they required to restrain them
from running ut large. We venture
the asertloc that a dozn good hsns
to each home in Eeaver would yield
100 per cent greater benefit to the peo-
ple in general than would all the gar-
dening wh! they might do. If wt
nre going to look at It from an econom-
ical view.point wq can scarcely afford
to decide against trie chickens.
Personally we are not concerned ns
to whether chickms run at large or
not. We have nc chickens but we do
try to raise a little garden and a few
flowers however our yard is well
fenced and our neighbor's (oultry does
not worry us toany great extent. If
it were not for the fact that the gov-
ernment is urging the conservation of
all food supplies we would ttj prohibit
the chickens from running at large for
we all. know that our yards could be
kept more attractive without the
chickens but since it is put up to us
from an economical stand-point we
conBdenjlj believe that chitkecS art!
more profitable to the government
just now than flowers or garden and
The Herald is not only in favor of
allowing chickens to run at large but
we would like to ste every home in
town have at least a dczen good hens.
After the war Is over ard the question
of food is not so precarious then it
would be well to confine the chickens
The Herald takes this stand purely
as a business matter we have no per-
sonal feeling in the matter as may be
seen from the fact that we have no
chickens. If we consulted our own
withes we'd say shut up thes;ratcl.in'
varmints for we'll confess a few old
hens have destroyed some perfectly
food and promising flower beds for us
n the past however we believe that
just at this time we should urge rather
than discourage poultry raising
The Town Board has askid for the
opinion of the people on thin question.
We have given ours. What i yours?
