Mrs. Beighton Hears Her Husband Reported Missing in Error

Friends of Mrs, W.J. Beighton 71 St. Paul St. town will be pleased to know that her husband who was reported missing in action on July 8 is now officially reported safe. The telegram she received this morning read as follows,—

The Minister of National Defence is pleased to inform you that Pte. Wm. John Beighton previously re¬ported missing in action is now officially reported safe.

Regret anxiety caused.

It will be remembered that Mrs. Beighton had received notice that her husband was missing on July 8, despite the fact that she had received a letter from him which was written on July 12 and post- marked July 13.

Mrs. Beighton was much relieved with the receipt of this official word although she had never really been dismayed in view of the fact that the official notice and her husband's letter just didn't coincide.

Nevertheless she reported an anxious time until it was cleared up.
