With Husband Disabled by Broken Leg She Employed Unique Signal Bripg Help That Might Save Him. to The following would be almost un­ believable if the facts were not the talk of the community and if it were not substantiated by the various par­ ticipants. In Penobscot bay, three miles from Islesboro, is a little island known as Mark island, owned by Pres­ ton Player, a State street broker of Boston, and he there maintains a big summer place. The keeper is Ralph Oollamore of Lincolnville, who in the winter, with his wife and two children, makes his home on the island in a lit­ tle cottage.- On Wednesday, January 23, he took the boat and started for Islesboro. Three hours were taken in making the trip o f three miles by water. He came back and upon landing and pull­ ing the boat up onto the shore on Mark island he pulled the boat over onto him, pinning him down and break­ ing his leg. His wife kept looking for her husband’s return and finally, at­ tracted by his groans, found him pinned under the boat. She is a frail woman but with him hanging onto his Injured limb, she managed to drag him up to the cottage. T h e r e w ith th e aid of a leather wallet and sticks she set the leg the best she could. There they were practically isolated and help was aeeded badly. Mrs. Collamore, full of pluck and de­ termination to get help, went to the Player summer home. There she man­ aged to set agoing the electric dynar mo by which the place is lighted. She turned on every light in that big house and put on also a red light. The lights were run all day Thursday and not until 5 :45 Thursday afternoon was the light noticed at Dark Harbor. Telephone calls were sent to the naval atation and the tug Zizania started to Dark Harbor to see what was the trouble. Dark Harbor waS reached about 9:30 Thursday night. There no one knew what was the trouble at Mark island. The Zizania cut her way through the ice, in some places 8 and 10 inches thick, for three miles to the Island. Captain Sherman and nine men went ashore. They made their way to the lighted house and there foiind no one. Groping ,?Iong in the • darkness they>were frightened by the sudden uprising of a flock of turkeys from a tree. Then they came upon the cottage in total darkness with the door open but no signs of life about. Going in they found the courageous little woman asleep, the injured man half asleep and both children slumber­ ing. The tug went back to Dark Har­ bor and there found a doctor who was brought back to Mark island. The Zizania remained at Mark island un­ til four o’clock Friday morning when the injured man was attended to.— Bangor Commercial. Britain's Indians. ^ The Indians in the British army on tbe western front, notably the Sikhs, that highly disciplined military force from British India, have little in com­ mon with the American red men. They come from tbe other side^bf the earth; they are sons of a deeply religious sect, and for 50 years or more have been an important factor in the Brit­ ish dominion of the far East. They are tall, well-built, handsome men, most of them with beards, and In perfection of drill and military bear­ ing they are not excelled by any troops on the western front. But while their methods of fighting are quite dissimilar, the Sikh fighting force being a well-trained military ma­ chine while the Am e rican Indian is a flexible unit, there is one thing in ^vvhich they are very much alike. As a “piumorous E n g lish w r iter— Punch and ^ t s punsters still live—puts it: “I have had an opportunity to study ^both the Indians of the East and the Indians of the West, and while they are very dissimilar in most things, when it comes to courage, I may be excused for saying that it is Sikhs of one and a half dozen of the other!” Stenographers to Go to France. A unit of 25 expert women stenog-^ raphers, who will wear a distinctive uniform, is now being recruited in the United States for overseas serv­ ice. This group will be assigned to the quartermaster’s corps of the American expeditionary forces and to the headquarters of the staff of General Pershing. Each applicant for service must be an experienced stenographer. She will be required to own in her own equipment four uni­ forms (two for winter and two for summer service); She must pass a physical examination, and will be en­ gaged for the period of the war. The salary now stated is $1,000 a year with the additional allowance of $4 a day for the first month and $2 a day for the remainder of the time. The’time has come when we m u st say good-bye to the readers of The M onitor and the friends we have outside of The M onitoi fam ily. We say this farewell with great reluct­ ance aud with m any misgivings. The future for Gilboa is such th a t all, sooner or later, m u st bid adieu to one another and seek homes th a t only the Good Lord knows where. We probably could have staid several m o n ths yet before the city would have asked us to get out, but inas­ much as the thing has got to be done and owing to the good opportunity that lias been offered us and tiie ex­ ceptionally good educational a d v a n ­ tages our new home offers, for the benefit of our two boys and the de­ sire to have £hem home nights, we have decided to lake the m a tter in our own hands and uot wait for or­ ders. Twenty years ago next February we came to Gilboa and began work for The Monitoi Publishing Co., of which A S. Thomas was president tnd m anager. We served in this capacity for four years after which we bought the paper and ever since have been its editor and publisher. We came lie re a young man but the w h itening of our hair today warns us th a t’.we have'about readied the sum m it of life’s activities and soon will he going down the other side. Twenty y ears has seen many changes in Gilboa. The families that m ade up the village when we first knew the place, or the most of them have passed over the G reat Divide and their place lias been taken by s tr a n ­ gers. W hen we pause to reflect on the changes that : !>e p assing of time brings!toa com m unity, is when we realize all th a t lias transpired in these years. We are sensible of the fact th a t many times we have m erited criti­ cism and have not done as well as we knew, but notw ithstanding our many faults our readers and friends and overlooked the mistakes and stood ready with their hearty handshake and liberal sup­ port to spur us on to do better and live b etter. All the favors th a t have heen shown us will ever be kindly'rem e m b e red and our life in Gilboa ch&rished tiie the bright­ est period p f our s tay on earth. Our address for the present will be 246 Main Street, Oneonta. The latch- stiin g w ill always be found hanging and it will afford us genuine pleasure to have our friends from this way\visit us. The distance is not so great but w h at all can come. Don’t wait for business to call you there. To all who have yet to find homes we tru s t they will be successful in finding a com m u n ity where life will b** as congenial and privileges the same as they have always iound in Gilboa, Again good-bye and may success attend you.

According to the story of M r.R ich- ards, which is s u b stantiated by oth­ ers in th^ vicinity of the a c c ident a t the time, he was d riving flown Broad street a t a m o d e rate pjree toward tlie Union station, and as he*neared the new garage of Helm es & Powell, he turned out well iuto the center of the s treet to avoid vehicles, which were s tanding on the west side of the s treet a t th a t point.

The front end of R ichards car was nearly even w ith-the rear of the COy wagon when R ichards first saw the boy and before he could act the bum pqr h it the boy and felled lim.

Through his ac­ tion in bringing the seven organiza­ tions together, he has eliminated what would otherwise have been seven dis­ tinct appeals to the public for the support of war work. John R. Mlott, speaking of the cam- paijgn, said: “These seven great organizations represent everything that is bes't m the life of th? American soldier. They represent the church, the cluib, the theater, the library and the athletic field. Together they follow the boys on the troop train, through the ca n ­ tonm ents, onto the transports* and at every step of the way even to the front line trenches. - “There is not a single home to the country flying a service flag that has not received -a letter on the station- ery of at least one of the organize- +,lr»yS(. _ And .erjery..- Igttcxr ■vrrii.-tszz .Ji­ lted Triangle paper, or K. of O., oi Salvation Army, or Jewish Welfare Board paper, means that the boy when he wrote the letter, was being kept warm, cheerful an d happy throng!) the gifts of the people back home. “The campaign will be organized with the help of the very biggest mei: of every community.
