Topeka, Sept. 2.—Martin Litke of Council Grove doesn't ask exemption for his twin boys or even deferred classification although the boys are doing the work on the Litke farm in Morris County where they have a thousand acres. Litke's son George was placed In Class 1 by the district board but the other son Jerry was given deferred class on agricultural grounds. The father appeared before the hoard after the classifications were- made and declared that neither of the hoys really ! claimed a deferred class but.that they had slept together, gone to school together and lived Inseparable all their lives and if one boy was needed In the service the other boy wanted to go to. All Litkt! asked and all the two boys seemed to consider relative to serving the country was that If tlioy lid it they wanted to be together. Both the father and sons made a special plea to the District Board to classify the hoys alike and if possible to see that they were called at the same lime and allowed to enter the same brunch of the service. The members or the hoard was sufficiently iiueresied in the Damon and Pythias affair to promise to send them to '.camp together. After that their Jurisdiction is at an end hut if the buys put up as good a talk Washington, I), t:.,—'There is nothing In it," says the United Slates Weather Bureau to repealed' inquiries us to whether the war affects rainfall or any other weather conditions, to camp officials they will probably There Is u popular fallacy 'hal loncus- Kions, explosions, and the. liberation of gases in the Kuropean conflicts is having an effect'on the weather, not only over the battlefields, but else wheru on the globe, built' is only a fallacy, say the weather spei luli.'-is of lie.; I'nltid Stales l)cj uiimeni ot Agriculture, even ihuugh It has existed almost sincii the beginning of his- loric Hints.

Dear Mother: Well, nothing much doing so will write some more. You would expect this would be a busy place but it is much duller than 1 expected. We are in the trenches .'nd have been for some time. This is a very quiet sector so don't be worried, Tor there Isn't "as much danger n.i you would think, but at that, it does seeui funny to have to walk all the lime in a ditch and can't look over for If you did there would be a bunch of Jerrys ready to blow your head off. We get to see some of the pretti >st air battles. A bqchc plane just a while ago came over and they shot about 200 shells at him but he got away but ccmldn't get over our lin*t to take any pictures. My old first sergeant, now Lieutenant llankia, has charge of our pack train aii.l they give it a good shelling every night but J he always manages to get our food up to us. There Is continual firing all! dBy but you soon get used to It and want to got. a chance to bump a Jer.-y off. I sat yesterday altornoon . i.d shot fifty times at -tr*(55'rinan sniper that had been bothering us but don't know If I hit him or not. Another plane is up so will soon see .'ome more fun Well, will write some more when we get back to a re it camp which will be in a few days. Your son, ED. Somewhere In Prance, July 0 191S.

Sho writes about you in every letter so you see I know just how you are all tho time. How is work down there now? There is sure plenty ot work here but it is all army work. This is a beautiful countrr-and it Is a shame to use It for a battlefield but .it has to be done and we don't- want to come home till it is over. We all think it will be this year but you never can tell. They say the Germans have a large army left but when tho U. SI get its soldiers over here wo will make short work of Jerry. He Js a coward and our boys are the bravest yet, and when they connect up with a Dutchman there Is nothing to tell. We will soon be in the thick of It and believe me 1 am going to do my best. We all want to win this war since we have come so far and there won't be any slackers when the big thing slarts.. You will hear from tho 137th before long to watch tho papers. I would like to tell you where we are but can't, hilt we can see the shelly bursting so wo won't be Idle long. Well, I hope to get a letter from you quite often and hope you are doing well. 1 will make It all light so don't worry about me and I can do more good over hero than I could there so am all; right. I write to mother and sisters twice a week. Will write to you often now that 1 know your address. Well goodbye and write ofton as a liflt'-r from home does so much good. Will close.

His letter rollows: Jt is raining again; has rained every day since we have been here; never very hard however. 1 had the pleasure "ot driving a dog yesterday; tbej first, time "since 1 was a kid. I little | Belgian girl who sells fruit was on [ her way home and the blg;;kids kopti stealing her -wares; sho asked us to help her so while the lad who was with me fanned the dust from the kids' trousers I drove her cart home, or as far as wo are allowed to go. Those dogs pull a load that Is actually unbelievable. Splendid Sermon.' Mamma. I've hard more good. sermons since we've boen In,the army than 1 did In a year before. Our chaplain is a fine iellow . What we would term a "good Indian", incidentally a "brother;' top. He. left a wife and two boys In Washington state. One Sunday when we were, coming through the "states" ,we .got off, at a little place in Minnesota; hail, splendid services on the lawn and Minn, "Swedes" are hard to beat Then as UBual the Red Cross ladies handed out real. "home made cookies". ; The first Sunday on board our chaplain gave a splendid talk on faith, hope and love, but Uie greatest of these Is love. Where Is that found? In" first Corinthians? About "if I speak with tho tongues of angels and of men and have not love I become as a 1 sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal." Ho referred to Drummond's "Hie Greatest Thing in tho World." You remember that little book I left at home. .I can't say tbat It rains here all the time, but It has kept It up pretty steadily all day and last night too, Not those heavy rains like Kansas but more like tho coast weather.' I sure bope, mamma, that the broken arm is well again and that this finds "you all" as well and happy as it leaves us. With bushels of love and remember not to worry for we are being troated tine and are lust as well off as we would be In the states, They've got Fritz on the run and we are going to keep him going too and will come back home a lot bettet'.boy for having been in the army.

The men at the front must have things to eat, to wear, to fight with; the only place they can come froni is America; the only way they can come is through your*efforts. You can serve and save in the way you buy clothes. Get good clothes, made of all wool fabrics, well tailored. They wear so well and last so long that they save materials and men to make the things our soldiers need. One way we can save and serve is to see that you get such clothes when you come here. That's why we recommend Hart Schaffner and Marx Clothes; They're well made; of all wool fabrics; a positive gnaran- tee of satisfaction goes with every suit or overcoat.... vli 'l only a. little wiser so don't expect too much.

FALSE REPORT CONCERNING THE INSURANCE COMPANIES Topeka, September 2.—Stories circulated to the etrect that insurance -companies aro not liable for insurance ot persons-who are aliens if they are law abiding citizens are untrue according to word received by S. N. Hawkes, assistant attorney general, from the Custodian pf Alien Property at Washington, D. C. The National Bureau of Law was questioned on the matter, by Mr. Hawkes on behalf of £^t|idow. iu Kansas-who is seventy years of age and has one son In sorvlco and four grandsons in service and In training camps. Yet this woman has never b6eh "accorded citizenship rights. Her husband died without taking out other than his first paper but confident that he was a naturalized citizen of America. She herself had never questioned her own status In the. United Stales until so informed by tho Insurance company. On this point, Paul Kllllam of the National Law Bureau sayB: "Tlie Trading with the Enemy Act doe*, not effect the property or property rights of unnaturalized aliens who are peacable, law abiding residents and who have been in no way giving aid arid comfort to our -> enemies. Your attention Is called to the fact that the Supreme Courts of many stales limit or define the extent to which unnaturalized 'aliens may acquire or hold real estate or other property or otherwise enjoy-tho provl- leges of citizens such as insurance and so on." • •>. MILITARY CRITIC EXPLAINS, Juet Why the German* Didn't Take' Rhelms to Relieve Embarrassment New York, Aug. 31*—Why Rhelms has not been attacked In force by tbe Germans is explained by Ooiieral Von Ardenne, military critic, In tho Berlin Tageblatt. "Tho city of Rhelms has a Tory strong garrison," wrote the general; "at least two'dlvlslonstctf colored colo nlnl troops. These fiKd* r full protection from the aerman'artillery, fire'in the deop-lying cellars, miles In length, which the big champagne firms have dug into the chalky soil. These cellars can. also be kept closed to the gas fumes which spread out over the ruins of the city. • .' '"The garrison is therefore guarded and protected by an impenetrable armor. In tbe event of a Gorman storming attack, which In Itself would be serious In view of tho permanent gas clouds over Rhelms, the French colo- niol troops would be able to assume the defensive of tho city unweak- ened." .
