PAGE EIGHT. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVTLLE, PA. SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1918. GETTING OUT 0; GEORGIA HAS THRILLS On* 4 «Tery negro is called- after some- « in the outfit. "At the rate we're going now the .war .will b» orer before we get out of Georgia. I don't know whether the indue*!- gets dizzy whenever he gets ·:«p above 15 miles an hour and has ·to stop antil he recovers his equill-. ',irium. The en^neman and fireman V»re now atandung alongside tne tracks irarmicg themselves at a wood fire. .Tike place they 'chose to stop at looks : -Yery mnch Ukc Siowhere. ,: ''PennsylTftnia.' and "Western Mary.; buul cars peanut; on n. southbound train give a homelike aspect to the otherwise staange scenery.

All kinds of dove 'is peddled around. No matter what anybody hears, the whole detachments gets" it ewetnally. Every- iiiliif : is: finally settled by a definite announcement 24 tours before the time of enixainment. Then begins the actual preparation. .

The mmckine was badiy smashed but tb« driver was not hurt much. ;The Incident, though trifling, .will further delay us in setting out of ", Georgia. "Tor those things that are necessary to comfortable existence while travetiDg, ratten bag3 and blanket rolls, are provided. The blanket rolls are made up of oae or more blankets, 'towels and other toilet articles, ex; tn noderweax and wbaterer else can be gotten into them.

In the ration bags are packed mess kits and other ·nlscellaneons articles most needed · '.vhile traveling^ The "blanket rolls are stripped xbout tbe barracks bags and · the whole package slung over tho COMING! "CAP" STUBBS AND HIS LIVE WIRE COMPANIONS Beginning March 11, The Daily Courier will introduce to its readers one of the livest live" boy comic strips in all the world. The pictures will be drawn by Edwina--the Phil May of American boydom. Edwina draws kids that are kids, the back-to-nature kids. Kids with fight in them. Kids with the love of adventure and thrills in them. Kids that liked to steal into the pantry and fish out the dark colored molasses cookies. Kids that were tempted and did play "hookey." Kids that loved. Kids that were just plain bad--without being wholly bad. Kids, kids, kids--in all their forms, shapes, manners, disappointments, happiness. The kind of kids that Edwina draws will greatly attract and interest, not only the present day little boys, but the present day big fellows who used to be the little fellows. Watch out for "Cap" Stubbs and his wonderful adventures! V f ' "The makeup of blanket roll and barracks b»g is left pretty mncn to the indMdoal soldier's taste, but there is a (0«d~de»I of-rivalry to mating up neat packs. There is a delightful ~t*rill" (A-tbe whole business, packing TM-uii-to "§po sonMnrherc, the location of which is not drrolged, is an expedience · that appeals to : the imagination.

''As I-said betoie. it's a wonderful -'-experience and dignified officers enter '." into it with all tno zest of younger " and ajiytning but dignified privates.
