Neigh- bor Saves Him From Bleeding To Death The popular chairman of the Wasnabaugn County Hiway Boant, Mr. Claude L. Crew, was cnoppmg wood on the reservation a week ago Wednesday. He was a miie away irom his home, which is lo- cated some tourieen miles south east of Interior. As good fortune would have it, Mr. crews good neighbor, William He.caer, happen ed along and since neighbors ait few and tar between in a new country, they talked l'or a time Beiore they parted Mr. Crew picked up his axe anti swung vig- orously at a limb. He missed amt the suaip tutting instrument en- tered his right leg half way be- tween the knee and the ankle. Blood flowed in profusion, vital arteries having been apparently severed. Mr. Crew summoned in-iron courage and tied up the leg above the knee, while Mr. Herchei applied an improvised bandagejust below to stop the outrush oiblood. Mr. Crew was then con vcyed to Mr. Herchers rig and tak en home, dangerously weakened through loss of blood, but display- ing an iron nerve and a cheerfudisposition which baffled everyom around him. Good luck was with our friernCrew- in the fact that Mr. Hercheijust happened along. Crews tear, was only partially broke and iihis weak condition with bloodflowing freely it would have heeiimpossible for him to manage them and get home safely. H would ha\ to death hef()r he could manage to get to his own roof. Dr. Hennings has been out sev ei al times to dress the so serioufl.v injured member. But thretimes since the deep and ugh wound has broken open again will much loss of blood to the unfoi tunate chairman of the Wash;, baitgh hiway hoard.On Wednesday of this week tinPatient had another very seriouhemorage.

H‘h'*r' r»v disnoshion his strorv will nower wd* be of the greatest assistance to him on the long and t»r~Rop-«r. read to r^eov^rv. M**. r»- O Mr has the since-net svrr- n of hv o f the entirr. eommuni'v and aM heartily wish him a rc covery. o—- Bateman Chosen Chairman Of County Board As will be seen in the minutes of the officiaJ proceedings of the Board of Supervisors of Jackson County, one of the first things the gentlemen did upon meeting, was to make James F. Bateman of the Cottonwood community their chan man for the coming year. Mr. Bateman is comparatively new at the work as supervisor having only been elected at the last election and began serving last summer. However, since he has been in office, he has made a very fine impression both with his colleagues as well as with ah other who has thus officially come in sontact with him. His fine clean character, intelligence, his highly developed sense of justice and his keen discrimination be tween right and wrong have aided him very greatly to perfohm his duties fair and square. He enter- ed office with clean hands and can fearlessly face every accuser on any issue with whih he has had anything to do in county affairs.; The cry of the people today is forjust such men, foue square to ev- ery wind that blows, in the admin- istration of public office. The Press desires to congratulate Mr. Bateman upon this fitting recog-1 nition as a man and a publicpub- lic official. New Chemical En- gine Arrives All those interested in local im- provements and especially in the recent progressive steps taken for fire protection of our village were delighted to see the second chem- ical fire fighting engine arrive last week. This fills the requirements of the board of fire underwriters ns far as apparatus is concerned. A few hundred feet more of fire hose is needed. But it has been ordered and is expected any time now*.
