Page Two STERLING DAILY GAZETTE, STERLING. ILLINOIS Saturday, November 1, Boy Scouts Prove Their Competence In First Aid Work I Bureau County Boys I To Exhibit Calves ! At Live Stock Show High Tribute Paid to Four Boys for Aid Given in Accident The compe!cnn» of Boy Scouts first effirientiy dem- Wfdnr^iny niaiis. follow in? nn automobile accident on We<t Lincolnwny in which two young women were painfully hurt James D« niton, scoutmaster of the Wallace school troop, and four of hif. boys *ere in a nearby restaurant for n lunch following n meeting of the troop when they heard a crash of automobiles. They ruxhed to the scfhie and found two women lying on the pavement. Two of the boys, Randall Barnett and Charles CaJhoun. senior scouts, put blankets under the Injured women and made an examination of them to determine their Injuries. One of the women was unconscious and bleeding from a gash in Jw?r head, and when she refrained consciousness they propped her up and covered her with blanket*. Then they turned to the other woman, who complained of pain in her back. In their examinations the scouts were careful to tee that there was no arterial bleeding. Despite requests from older persons on the scene that the women be moved, the Boy Scouts resisted. declaring that It would not be w until a physician arrived. That their Judgment was sound was evidenced when an examination revealed that one of the women had suffered a fractured pelvis, which might have been aggravated had she been moved. The other two boys, Harry Coiner and BUI Storms, scout pledges, to the meantime followed the procedure which scouting teachen: First call a physician, then an ambulance. •ad thirdly th« police. Returning to the »c*n« they directed trmffta •round the accident and gave their attention to clearing glass and other debris from th« pavement. When the polio* arrived the acouti were furnished with flares for use in directing traffic, while th« officer! made an Investigation of the accident. Additional Hares were obtained for the soouU by Commissioner Wm. A. Krohn, which were used until the women had been moved from th* scent to the h«- pltal and the wrecked cars had been removed from the highway. After the soouU had given first aid to the women and made them •s comfortable as possible, Dr. John D. Boland, who wan en route to a aide call, stopped at the aoene. He ..examined the patients and -paid a high tribute to the first aid work of the Boy Scout* by saying: "There la nothing I can do; everything U under control." After the women had been placed in an ambulance Dr. Boland drove to the hospital to givt them more onaplete examination!!. m a statement Dr. Boland said: The Boy acouta of Wallace school under the personal direction of their scoutmaster, James Daulton, did a very fine piece of work In rendering first aid to the young ladies who were Injured. One ot the mo&t important. acta of all was that they prevented th* crowd from having the injured women moved insld* from the walk. To have moved the one who suffered an injured pelvis might haw caused very serious trouble, it Is moat important to -leave a victim in the position la which they fell until professional attention could be given. "Theaa scouts, under the direction at their scoutmaster, showed that they were able to use in emergency that which they had been trained to do. They knew their work and did it. Their determination and confidence was admirable. They showed marked aptitude in investigating for hemorrhaging and bro- aven bones." Further tribute to the first aid eervic* of the Boy Scouts was heard from a number of people who w«i« •t the aoene, who declared it was an excellent piec* of emergency work and that the.boya^w«r*-U> be congratulated on the execution of littlrtlnjng jwhJch they had received in Urteir Bay Scout work.

McPherran Who Served for 25 Years The present Sterling public library dates back to the passing of an ordnance by the city council on April 27. 1878. the orRaniaMon be Ing under the revised statutes o the state of Illinois of 1874. Prk> to that time there had been a libra ry. first maintained under the nami of the Sterling Library Society and later, the Christian association. The first board of trustees, as the board was then called, consisted of James E. McPherran. Alfred Bayllss Thomas A. Gait, George w. Brewer R. B. Wltmer, Bradford C. Church William H. Bennett. Martin H. Kreider and R. B. Colcord. Mr. McPherran was elected president arx Alfred Bayllss was named secretary. McPherran held the office of president until his death 25 years later. The library wa* established In a room In the Academy of Music, Oalt & Tracy, the owners, donating the rent for 10 years. The first books installed consisted of the library of the consolidate! Library society and Christian association, consisting of M3 volumes Later 192 books were purchased and 52 books were presented to the Institution. The library was formally opened September 9. 1178, with Miss Caroline E. Bowman as librarian. For five years. In order to eke out the city appropriation, the board managed a lecture course, from which several hundred dollars annually was added to the fund. The library was moved to the city hall in 11*9. where It waa established in what Is now the office of the city clerk, where It remained until the lato R. S. Philips presented the necessity of a new building to Andrew Carnegie, who presentee the Carnegie fund to the city provided the city matched his gift. This was done and the new building opened to the public November 22 1905. There are now between 27,000 and 21.000 volumes on the library Observe Hallowe'en At Silos Jones Home Mr. and lira.

All the forcinc \nrieties of tuhps. narcissi snd the minor bulb* which are used by IJon"-!-" to produce pot r>!an(s may be forced by the amateur who ha* a sun parlor snd is willing to be patient and careful. In this operation, ax mlth others, you do not grow flower?, you merely permit them to live as are animals: we have only to place them In an environment which makes It possible for them to thrive. The procedure with bulbs is well standard Iwd. The first step is to pbmt them, in pots or the shallow pots called "panR." The soil should be what florist* call Rood potting ROU and is best purchased from a florist, since very little is needed. Place the bulb no that It; point is half an Inch below the surface. Now it Is necessary to allow the bulb to make roots; and for this purpose the pot must be placed in a dark and cool place, where it cannot freeze or dry out too much. A cold frame, where it can be covered with leaves, or a pit protected by a curb from surface drainage, where several pots may be stared, covered with leaves, ashes or sand, will do. When placed In this storage the pot should be thoroughly soaked, and no further watering should be necessary. If stored in an indoor cellar or closet the soil should be prevented from drying out excessively. Boot action will follow and when top growth begins the pot may be brought indoors or keep in the storage place and so retarded until wanted. Care «f B»I»e After being brought indoors the pot must be given all the light possible and kept which average in a temperature 60 degrees until stems, leaves and flower buds are formed. This means keeping them out of overheated rooms, preferably on a sunporch, where windows may be opened for ventilation and coolness. Night temperatures should be lower than day. After buds are formed a temperature of 70 degrees will bring out the flowers, and If haste Is needed a higher temperature will produce it Too high temperature will produce spindly growth and may prevent flowering. Air Is aa impor tant as light. Success in forcing bulbs Into flower in nil depends entirely on the points here enumer ated and unless one is willing to pay strict attention to details It is better not to undertak it. But i can be seen from the *'" that no skill is required: knowledge of plants, plus patience and care, are. all that are needed and the reward is rich. To watch the flowers develop will teach many lessons which may be of value in the garden next year. It takes much longer to produce flowers by this method than with Scens of Attacks on U.

No Aluminum Leg Bands Available for Poultry; Will Wear Substitutes Hens, like others of their sex. will be wearing substitutes on their legs in the coming year. Hens are doing their part for defense In more ways than one. Having already responded to the call for more eggs In the food-production program, stimulated by scientific feeding methods recommended by the U. S. depart? ment of agriculture, the hens are now expected to help with the con- servation of aluminum by changing the style of their leg bands. Leg bands are those indentlfylng markers put on mature birds by poultry-men who keep management records. In future, says the department, patriotic hens will wear leg bands of various plastic materials or a soft metal composition — but no aluminum. The pedigree wing bands placed on baby chicks at hatching time, to show their persentagc. are an- another matter. The chick' wing must be pierced in attaching a wing band, and so far no one has found a' satisfactory. sanlUiy substitute for aluminum. The poultry Industry has agreed to salvage and return all used aluminum leg bands and wing bands for reprocessing into new wing bands. By so doing, and by using the substitute leg bands, poultrymen believe they can get along with only 11.000 pounds of aluminum this year, instead of more than 150,000 pounds used last year. Increased egg production, needed for defense, depends on scientific methods of management and control, which. In turn, require individual Indentlftcatlon with sealed bands. The office of production management has ruled that the poultry industry can make cood use of 11.000 pounds out of the nation's scanty aluminum supply — If used for wing banding only.
