We never heard a word of condemnation of the manner in which he conducted the office during the four years he iwas probate judge and we have no doubt he will be just As efficient As county treasurer of the county.

However by this Tini the big War was looming on the Hor Ison in fact the countries of Europe were already in it and the u. S. Was striving to enlist an army by Way of preparedness. Capt. Shaw again enlisted and was used for some time in the recruiting. Service but later sent overseas As Captain and while on the firing line was seriously wounded but by the Aid of the finest surgery has so far regained the use of his body and limbs that he is Able to get around nicely by the Aid of crutches. A Shell struck him in the head and for a while one Side of his body and limbs on one Side were badly a realized. Government surgeons made several operations and had him in the Hospital for Many months but we Are glad to say that he can now get around quite Well. Capt. Shaw is a Clever Young Man and we Only wish that in time his body might be As Well and sound As his mind. He is unfitted for manual labor but can handle this clerical Job nicely and the democrats of Republic county take pleasure in giving him their endorsement and in that Way making his election unanimous.
