It has been the general impression that in order to draw the insurance a dependency must be proven This is a mistake. Secretary Glass of the U. S. Treasury has issued a letter which in part says': ‘‘Insurance is payable regardless of any dependency and á beneficiary designated in an application for Government insurance |f within the permitted class of spousa, ebftd. grandchild, parent, bzbther or sister is entitled to recei ve the insurance in monthly installments without proving any dependency upon the insured. No dependency need be shown by any ben* eflciary in order to receive the Government insurance but a mother or father must prove actual dependency upon their deceased son for the necessaries of life In order to receive the addltion-hM payment of eompenaetlon. ” Loi» Ellen Bilderback, little daumter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Bilderback, north of Petersburg, died Wednesday of pneumonia.

It is being freely predicted are to have an early spring, many people think that we will have no bad weather since we have gone well into February without any 'bad weather. But nobody can tell what a February and March will bring forth in Southern Indiana. Only one fourth of February has gone with all of March to come and there is no teling what will happen yet in the weather line. Personally we hope the weather prophets are correct in their diagnosis. / This is the year for the Seventeen-year locusts. They are due to appear in Indiana. Entomologists of the United States department of agriculture say that they see nothing alarming in the prospect. The real name of the locust is periodical cicada and the injury they do consists in chiseling grooves in the branches of trees for depositing eggs. The injury always appears to be greater than it acually is. Young fruit trees are often killed by them. Under these conditions spraying should be caréflly looked after. near the gas com pany’s regulator house. A wagon was going the same direction and did not turn out soon ehougb.

We are not saying that we are to have just six more weeks but the Ground Hog sign never fails. Sunday was official Ground Hog day and while the sun did not shine all dsy it was Cut enough for Mr. G. Hog to see his shadow and go back ipto his hole for another six weeks. Six weeks more oi'MMGriadwie^.lwvei*^^ having not be .t *11 kind of winter for only six weeks wo will count ourselves lucky in the weather line. It is such a contrast to the winter of a year ago that we can hardly believe that such a winter pos- sible in this climate. Mrs. Sarah M. Bright wife iam Bright died early Sunday movn-ing at their home in Littles of pneu monia. A baby was bom to them on Friday. Deceased was 33 :^ars old and a splendid woman. Surviving is the husband and five children including the few days old baby. The remains were shipped Tuesday morning to Bicknell where the family formerly lived where the funeral service and burial took place. William R. Elliott dropped de^ Mon day at the home of his son William, three miles south of town. He had not been sick. He went out in the back yard and fell dead. Members of the family found him shortly after he had died. He was 77 years old, having Iieen bora in North Carolina in 1847. He was a good naan who was held in high esteem by those who knew him. His wife preceded him in death and he had been making his home with bis son. Coroner Kinman was called to view the remains. The funeral service was held at' the family residence Wednesday. The remains were taken to the Odd Fellows cemetery at Augusta for burial. A meeting of representative citizens was held in Winslow Wednesday night looking toward a fitting soldiers’ memorial. A splendid crowd was present and all expressed tbenisevles as being favorable to a memorial. It was decided that we would fall in with any plan to establish a memorial which should be centrally located that all the people of the county might take part In the erection of such a memorial. Just where such a memoria^. shoul4 be erected was net decided but t^t it shoidid be centrially located that áÍI the people of the county might have easy access to use or view it was the general opinion of those present. A mass meeting is to be called for next Monday night to which people from every section of the county is invited, to further discuss plans for the erection of a suitable memorial to the soldiers of Pike eounty. Every person interested in tbis move is invited to be present The Board of trustees of Wnnslow met in regular session Monday night and among other things organised a fire department with Elmer Wilhelm as fire chief. The baliume of the fire company is Gilbert McCkird, Rofcoe Evans. Ben Baker. Fred Powers and Charley Cooper. A fire card will be gotten out soon for the use of pa trons. In the mean time if a fire breaks out call tha axchange at once. They will notify the chief. Tha chief was ordered to arrange for a Ford chassis on which to mount the chemical tanks and tc^ place the fire fighting spparatus and men in condition to get to a fire at once. Very little otheir business of importance was before the board.

Wsilf-man, eo«l. $1.60; Wi$alow DiH«tcb. psblishing annual report. $16.00. Examinations of the peach buds show that they were uninjured by the cold spell early in January, it waa feared that the mild weather of December followed by the severe weather of the early part of January and thia followed by the mild and beautiful we&tber we have just been having would damage the peaches but we are informed by men who make a study of such things that this is not the case. But there is plenty of time for them to be killed. But if they are not, we will have but few peaches tbis year due to the fact that so many peach trees were killed during the severe cold weather of last winter. Even with the most favorable conditions, it will be two or three years before Indiana will again have a normal peach crop. An enthusiastic meeting was held in Petersburg Sunday afternoon looking toward the erection of a soldiers* me • morial in that city. The first money toward the new building was raised by taking the surplus funds on hands at the dose of the war of the Pike county Mess Fund. This fund wse something like $1,400 00. It has been turned over to the memorial building for Petersburg or plans to be turned over. The Mess Fund was raised by solicitation among the people at each gathering when the boys left for camp. Moat of the men went to camp from Winslow. The Sunday afternoon meeting was a prearranged affair. Preeident W. Dearing of Oakland City collega, delivered the address which was pronounced fine by those who heard it. The proposed building is to cost $20,000.00. We ere told that the sito for the building ie the corner of the court house block where the old jail stood, the comer south of the present jail. At the Sunday afternoon meeting some $2,200 was subseribed. Tbie acMed to tbo county Mess Fund which has been taken over gives them something like $3,600.00 aa a starter on the $20.000.00. Practically all the subecript-iona taken were from residents of Pet-eraborg but it !■ expected the people out in the county will come forward with liberal dcmations for the memorial ballding.
