IK-ar Folks: I havo not wriiteti home for more limn two weeks although I promisiMl mother that 1 should wriu 1 eaeh week, but you may know that only a I nek ot I line prevented. Today, my mother's birthday, will not pass without u letter If I am forced lo slay up all flight to write. Ami t Khali risk in- cuniiif! the enmity of the censor and make this a Ions one. 1 suppose that first In the order or rrvenls rhoiilil come the fact that I am lust oft "the line." I. have spent nine (lays acquiring nerve,' courage, r-xpori- ienee and "coo'ies" iu the trout line trenehes and have had my "baptism of fire." ] have been subjected to gas and artillery Tire and am forced to ad , mil that I had no opportunity to r.ct CMU. MUU and M 1 ,<io_not_ need^ U. in oilier words, when I get into larger town, I shall fix up u package- of ajouvenirs, French money, etc., atid sou* to him. Where wo are we can buy very few things. The French people "stick" us for everything we buy. To Rive you an idea (Dad. this should inlon »t you and Central Alerc.) 1 paid 16 francs for a can of plnonpple, (almost j;t 00 American money), 5 francs for a small can of sardines ($1.00 tun.), 51.40 for a No. S'-fe can of apricots, ?l .fiO for a Jar of preserves, 80c for 3 lemons. And yet 1 m here to fight for France. I can't understand why II Is permitted but as nnuy chow gels monotonous, I am glad to pay for luxuries to rot them. The only cheap thing is wine and it is worse than carbolic acid. Toll Grandma that 1 think of lief often and that these letters home are for her as well ns for my Dad and Mother. Surely you can understand that 1 simply haven't timo lo write to each one. 1 have riot cashed the draft sent lo W. C. T. II. CONVENTION Reno County Convention Held Friday at Lutheran Church.

More hard luck. i His First Experience. i Our first experience on the line was In what is termed a quiet sector, but if it was quiet 1 cant Imagine a noisy one. Never shall 1 forget the first shell that, exploded over my \ head. Some people say .that a shell sings, but- If it does 1 do not like music. The second night In the trenches 1 witnessed a terrific bombardment by Krliy. upon an adjacent sector. Gas, high explosives and shrapnel vied with one another In making tiio air hideous Willi shrieks from bursting shells. We received a gas alarm and for the first time In my life 1 was afraid. However, when 1 had my mask adjusted and had taken my second wind, 1 was "rarin'" to go alter those German devils with bolii hands and feet. Our alarm was a false one and after a few minutes we removed the masks. Soiuo time ago 1 wrole you that 1 could not conceive of a battle in the air but now 1 can as I have seen one. A more thrilling sight you cannot imagine. Have also seen a bombardment by a squadron of planes, an observation balloon, on fire falling with the observers leaping to safely by parachutes. In fact, so many different phases of conflict that 1 agree with Sherman when he said "War is Hell." It is hell and will try the souls of the bravest men. 1 have only to go over the lop and then 1 shall feel that 1 have done my duty. Afler the first night In the trenches I never felt in the least afraid. We were on guard all night ami slept during the day and 1 have learned thai ono does not require quiet to rest, as 1 elvpi like a bahe, with high explosive shells bursting around the dugout. Wo lived very comfortably in a bomb proof dugout or cave VI or la feet below the ground. Slept in bunks upon straw and had plenty n> eat twice each day. The most Inconvenient feature was that we were forced to carry the "chow" from the kiicheii through a mill.' of trenches ami that w 'as no oasy Job. However, i do not complain as hardship is our lot until this war is over which appears far in the future to me. 1 can nee no end although the Yanks are running Fnlx to deal.i over (lie western from. 1 wish 1 coul-l see home for Xmiis dinner as you folks do hill 1 can't.

We are back to the trenches oncV more so we do not have very much timo lo loaf, if you are not working you are kept busy dodging shells as one lands here every once in a while. Well, how did you spend the Fourth? Wo had a big parade and some contests, such as climbing the greased pole. Some of tho boys went to tho top, about twenty-fivo feet, ami brought down three bottles of wine and champagne, but the French hoys had most of the grease on their pants and he had an old uniform with molasses on the legs of them. Oh, you can 't beat a soldier of Uncle Sam'B. You say you just got my card saying I had landed "over here." 1 mailed that over two months ago in New York. They said you would get it right away. i.

We saw quite a few whales and sword fish, but outside of that all was quiet. Had a nico letter from Pearl Taylor the other day. Sure would like to run on to Howard and Frank Ellison over here, but I dou't know to look for them. Frank's old company is here with us, but iHino of the boys seem lo know him.

The rnult seemed to lie in tho bad condition in -which the road was. It was hard and full or ruts, causing several motorcycles/to spill. The first one to spill, was K. IJ. Symns of this cliy. It was In tho first race, the. third lap, aiUl he was going close to a mile a minute, and waB fast overtaking Herbert Jones of Wichita. He was riding for Spec Warner's Racing Squad, on a four valve Indian, when his motorcycle hit a rut, throwing him on his head, and knocking him unconscious. A by slander dragged him off the track, and he was taken to a hospital. The motorcycle was a complete wreck, the frame being badly bent, and the motor was HHcd with dirt. Allen Burrls also of this city, to avoid running into Symns, turned out of the way and was also spilled, lie was closely followed by Spec Warner of Ellsworth, who turned over in the same place on the track, and Albert Altenreid of this city blew tho front tire out on hiB motorcycle, thus spilling him. S. M. Johnson of this city was practicing before the race, /and had a slight spill. This all happened at the races Saturday afternoon. None of the racers were seriously hurt but Symns. He is still in a pretty bad condition. POLICE COURT GOSSIP. * like it belter In tho trench than outside, but I don't like to climb moun- lalns to get in them.

I have just written to Dr. Switzer today, telling him that my work here is about equal to that of a Kansas district superintendent, for it reaches from the Swiss border back about one hundred or more miles into the interior, and Is about fifty miles across, in some places, though of irregular shape. It makes my work very hard to handle, especially since I have no way of my own to get around over the division. I have thought so'many, many times what a blessing It would be if I had our fine ear hone, and could have the use of it myself.

In spite of the difficulties, however, there is a large amount of work going on, and today there are at least nineteen regular meetings scheduled, with the. possibility of having several more that are not down on my records. Hero in the main big camp we are . not able to hold any Indoor meetings ' for the present because there is, a sort of an epidemic or the grippe going around, and what meetings wo hold today must he held outdoors. I have arranged for two tills evening, one for white men at one end of the camp, and I will hold a meeting for the colored men al tho other end of the camp. They-are not held BO far apart from any reason of prejudice, but simply on itccount of convenience. I found after taking charge, that nothing whatever had been done in tho way of meetings for tho colored men, so I at once Blnrted something along that line, and will try and keep it going as long as I am here, for they really enjoy it more than some white folks, It certainly makes a busy life for me, and gives me a chance to help the -boys at a time and place when they very much need It, for they apparently go from here direct to the bin tie line, and ours is about the last chance that any one has at thorn." I believe that they are a little harder to reach In tho largo camp than were those among whom 1 worked in the smaller unit, for there is so much activity here of all kinds that thoy do not rjulle so much need the fellowship ot tlto meeting, and the other things distract from the real religious Interest. 1 have not yet seen any Hutchinson boys, though with tho constant change that is going an here I hero is no telling when they may come to this placo> By a strange freak of fato my lot has been cast nearly all the time among boys from tho east, though scattered Individuals from different purts of the country are hero.
