Christ Enjoys Getting Mail. We have the following note from Christ Salzgeber who is at Oak Knoll Nursing Home, 1811 27th Street, Des Moines, Iowa, where George Kohl ma.nn had a long visit with him last week ond found him considerably im proved in health: "Dear Bill—I want to thank all the fine people in Postville who have been so kind to me during the year in visiting me and sending me letters and remembrances. I enjoy so much seeing^onyone from home and hearing froirrthom. It makes me feel good to know they are thinking of me. I shall appreciate-it if you can make this public. My wife joins me in wishing you and all our Postville friends a merry Christmas and happy New Year, Sincerely yours, Christ Salzgeber." And a right merry yuletide and a healthy New Year right back to you, Christ, They are delayed by bod weather in France. He said he never saw the sun any time while he was. in France, so it was anything but 'sunny France' to him. The first part of November he had an eleven-day furlough and visited Switzerland. While there he called at the city hall in Bern and procured my birth certificate. The head man at that office lives on the same street where my parents lived at the time, so he took the rest of the day ofT and took our son, out and showed him the city. He was thrilled at seeing Switzerland, he said. He hoped to be home by Christmas, but it is very doubtful now if he will make it. However, to know that he is on his way home is wonderful. Wishing you and all our friends up around there a merry Christmas and enclosing a checlc to keep the old homo town paper coming to our house another year, as we couldn't get along without it, I am. soncerely. Mrs. John C. Wells, P. O. Box 171. Camanche, Iowa." * • * • * Frcil Pllcster Thinks It's Cold.
