BETTER MAIL SERVICE
A change In mall service took placo
this week which will give us far bet-
ter service than we have been having
for sometime past. By the new ar-
rangement the mall will be carried
by the train going up to Forgan on
the morning train and right on out
on the W. F. & N. W. At night the
mall will be transferred from tho
Wichita Falls train to the Beaver
tine and will come on down Instead
of laying over until next morning as
In the past. Owing to the late ar-
rival of the train the night mall Is
not distributed here until morning
but Is ready by business hours.
The change Is certainly a most
agreeable one to the patrons of .the
office but not at all convenient for
the postmaster and his assistants. It
will rouse them out at an earlier hour
ta tho morning than most of us care
BEST IN THE WORM)
Tho Herald received a compliment
this week which while we can't quite
persuade ourself to accept as true
yot we appreciate tho spirit In which
It was given Just tho same. A sub-
scriber from Knowles who has taken
The Herald ever since ho has resided
In the county called In to renew his
subscription again and he said "I
toll you. The Herald Is the best paper
in the world." It we seem to bo
just a bit "puffed up" In future now
you'll know the cause.

He Is in the motor truck service. Ho
said he had a nice trip over and was
liking Army life line.

RED CROSS DISTRICT CON-
FERENCE Maude O. Thomas clialnflan of
Denver County Chapter American
Red Cross; Mrs. K. L. Flckel secre
tary; and Mrs. O. II. Cafky exten
sion secrctnry spent from Thursday
till Saturday night of last week nt
Woodwnrd In attendance at a district
conference of Chapter officers learn-
ing more of Bed Cross organization
and development. The conference
was conducted by Miss Pauline With-
erspoon field secretary for Oklahoma
and was of Intense Interest from the
opening hour to the last moment of
the closing session. Miss Wlthcr-
spoon Is a wonderful woman and she
Is heart and soul In the work. The
representatives from Beaver County
Chapter gleaned many new thoughts
and ideas for work which It will be
their utmost desire to pass on to the
workers all over the county. The
giving of this Information and help
will be chiefly In the hands of Mrs.
Cafky extension secretary for the
county and she hopes to reach every
district as soon as possible. A report
of tho conference was given at the
regular meeting at headquarters on
Tuesday evening and those present
who were able to attend received a
great deal of benefit.
Red Cross workers of Beaver coun-
ty and others Interested In the cause
will be glad to know that Beaver
county Is at the front of all counties
In the stale In the matter of Red
Cross organization. Following the
report of this County Chapter at
Woodward Miss Wltherspoon an
nounced that for the first time since
taking up the work In Oklahoma she
had found the Ideal county organlza
tlon In the report of the Beaver coun
ty Chapter. This was due to the fact
that we not only had every district In
the county arranged for Branch or-
ganization but we also hud a Branch
organization in Beaver which is
headquarters town and maintained
a separate organization from that of
the County Chapter thus giving the
officers of tho Chapter an opportunity
to devote their time to the entire
county reaching the fathest corner
of their jurisdiction and giving
them the same attention as the terri-
tory Immediately adjacent to hcad-
qunrters. This Is not always true
where a Branch is not maintained In
a headquarters town and we find the
officers of tlio Chapter devoting their
time more exclusively to the terri-
tory near them however this was not
true of Beaver County Chapter even
before the Beaver Branch was organ-
ized. The entire county has been
given equal attention as will bo evi-
denced by the thorough organization
of Branches every district In the
county except three being organized
and Instructed In the work. It Is
planned to reach the remaining thrco
before March 1.
As chairman of the Beaver County
Chapter tho editor of the Herald Is
extremely proud of the record wo
have been able to make with the
ready and willing nssistanco of the
loyal men and women of the Chapter
It's Branches anil tho people of the
county in general but becauso we
have made this splendid record much
Is expected of us In tho way of output.
Wo are so thoroughly organized that
much work Is expected of us. Let us
not fall down on the work. Beaver
county Is now at the top. Let us keep
It there. To do so there Is work for
every man woman and child. The
men can and must tnko caro of tho
finances. Women can sew and knit
but they cannot do that when they
ar.e spending their tlmo raising funds
to buy materials. It is up to tho men
to sew or finance tho sewing. Wo
believe they will chooso the lattor
and that they will tako care of it
manfully. The children can assist In
many ways. There Is work for all.
Let all ALL Beaver county man
woman and child do their duty.
Will you? We believe that you will.
6 NOT TOO OLD TO DO 1IT8 HIT
The following clipping from tho
Roseburg (Oregon) Revlow will bo
of Interest to Beaver county friends
of C. C. Groves formerly of this
county but who has boen living nt
Roseburg for tho past few years:
C. C. Groves was In from Glen-
garry this afternoon. Although G5
years of ago Mr. Groves has put In
nearly CO acres of grain this season.
Although ho had almost retired from
actlvo work some years ago ho Is

tho war. That Is tho real spirit that
makes sure the ultimate success of
our nation in tho world conflict.

lets which Grandma Laughrln had

A number of our promlnont citi-
zens have been In the "front line

past week among them being Attor
ney Roscoe Rlzley and J. O. Judd.i
They were always pretty thoroughly
convinced that anything of the kaiser
strain was pretty "measley" but-they
are moro firm in their convictions
than 'ever since their attack of tho
latest brand of measles. About
everybody In Beaver has enjoyed (?)
an attack of tho malady. If you
haven't "had om" you're sadly out
