New York, Sept. 7.—-American sol- tilers iu the front lino trenches In France "ill receive their home letters within three weeks after mailing It l>]mi .H now being worked out by army postal officials are successful. Captain Frank E. Frazier, assistant director of the American Bxpedltion- tal Service in France, the United States to put Into effect plans for expediting the delivery of American mall to the soldiers In i'>ance. He said today: "With what has been done or is now lieing done to Insure the prompt delivery of mail, there should he no occasion for delay or nondelivery of letters to our soldiers In France if thoso writing them from hbme will realize that the slightest inaccuracy or obscurity In tuo address of a letter is almost certain to cause delay and may result In nou-dellvery." One million letters arrive In France every day addressed to members of the American Expeditionary Forces, according lo an estimate of the military postal authorities. Steps taken to expedite mail from the United States to France, according to the statement, Include: The turning over of complete- military information as to the location of troops In France by the military authorities to the military and domestic postal officers: the issuance of orders sending mail on every ship destined for any port in Franco organized to re­ ceive mall; and the adoption of ft scheme of destination for groups of unattached soldiers sent from tho United States lo replacement camps In France. "A complete postal system corresponding to that In the United States Is now in operation In Prance-with a central post office located at Tours," the statement continues. "This service, except the distribution and dispatch of malls to the United Stales, Is entirely under military control, "In view of the duplication of names In the American Expeditionary Frirccs, the absence of any distinguishing designation for groups ot casual or replacement men has been a source of difficulty in the delivery of mall. Thousands or soldiers are being sent to France every month from this country for replacement purposes. It Is estimated that 300.000 letters a month were delayed from this cause, Tills delay In delivery will not occur under arrangements which have just been made to have each replacement unit or BO men, as It leaves enrap In the United Slates given a distinctive company number which It will retain until It reaches a replacement camp In France. Every member of such untt will then be one of 250 men Instead ot one nnd a half million men. "The matter of the address to Insure prompt delivery Is of vital Importance. The misspelling of a name of the use of initials where a word should be spelled out may not only retard the delivery of a letter but may prevent Its being delivered at all. Many thousands of letters are constantly received which cannot be promptly delivered, if delivered at all, on account of the manner In which they arc addressed. "A letter from an American soldier In Europe should be so addressed as to show his rank, his full namo Including his middle name, his company or battery nnd his regiment, as well as the branch of service.

They Will Help to Relieve the Situation in State of Kansas, Topeka, Sepl. 10.—Sorghum Byrups are tho only solution to' the sugar problem In Knosas in the opinion of ,1. C. Mohler, secretary of Agriculture. In a bulletin- issued today Mohlei' •Buys: The shoi'iiige of sugar and the seriousness of the situation as regards sweets In this country has caused housowlves generally to make use of syrups in canning and cooking of all kinds, and lias revived Interest espec- ialy In tho sorghum variety, of which a considerable quantity Is always made In Kansas. During the past week or ten days the Secretary of tho State Hoard of Agriculture at Topeka, has received more titan a dozen Inquiries from persotis located in all parts of the United StateB, relattvo lo the addresses of manufacturing plants located here, especially those who do not list} the sulphur process in such manufacture. Letters have already boeu received from states as fur removed as New Vork, Washluglon, Oregon, California and Pennsylvania, also from those near by, UB Colorado, Mis, souri, Iowa and Illinois. The largest sorghum mill iu KanssB, or In the United States, Is located in liourbon county, lire southeastern port. It is the Fort Scott Syrup Company and manufacture what is known as "Fanner Jones' Syrup". Most of tho syrup manufactured in the statu is produced in small homo plants, the names and addresses of which the Hoard has no record at prnaont.

He says he is having a fine time considering everything, and is far from the scene of action. 'His letters follow: Soniewhcro in France, August S, 1918. Dear Dad and Mother: Well, another day-has passed and I expect you are all wonderhfg about your son. Well, I am sort of curious to know about you also, I have not received any mail from any of you since I left Fort Ijeavenworth. I sure will be glad when the mall -is passed around again. Wo had quite an eventful voyage wliich f would like to tell you about, hut will have to wait till I get home I guess. We have done quite a bit of traveling on tills side of the pond and have seen some beautiful country. Ono would not realize Uiat ho was In a war swept country if he wore not already aware of It. 1 hear that our army Is making some big gains at the front although I don't know whether to believe it or not as there aro so many rumors that get started in the army. However, I don't Bee Why tho Americans should not make good if they live up to their reputation in past events. I am in fine health and am'having a good time every day. Sometimes 1 go to bed pretty tired after the day's work hut I have the biggest appetite I have o-ver had In my life. . Nothing goes from my plate to the slop pall, believe me. 1 have made a great number of friends slnco I came into the army, so that I don't get time to be lonesome or homesick. I think that the war will soon be over and then Oh, boy! Won't there be some reception when wo get back bo U. S. A.? I nm In the Y. M. while writing this and there Is a picture show going on in the next room. You Bee we have entertainment even over hero. I broke the crystal In my wrist watch the other day and as I can't replace It here, I may decide to send It home, A wrist watch is all right when you can get it fixed but It is all wrong when you can't. Well, I can't think ot any more this tlino. Tell everyone hello for me, and hello for yourself. With lots of love. Your son, JOHN D. August 21, 1918. Dear Mother and Dad: Well, hero I am again as usual. Tlioro Is nothing now to write about and about all 1 can say Is that I am feeling fine and considering everything am having a pretty good time. I received two letters from you yesterday and three from Gladys, and foe- ellevo me 1 sure was glad to get them. You Bcemed to 1>o awfully worried about me- for souio reason or other. I^fow If you "want lo please me. don't worry. I jun perfectly able to take care of myself and believe me, this array game teaches a man to,look out for hiuisejf. By this don't think that I don't miss the Joys and comforts of home for I sure do. But we are at war and war calls for sacrifice, and 1 guess everybody is hit more or less when it comes to that. It is not Btrange that you folks did not hear from mo as tfie boat on which I sailed did not land until Jdly 30 and no mall was released until wo landed. The two Hutchinson boys which I knew at Ft, Leavenworth have been transferred to another company, so thore Is no one from my heme town any more. A fellow gets used lo this transfer game though, and it teaches "him not to form too close friendships at it only means a greater disappointment when he bo comes separated from them, I found it so when I left Camp Funston. Harry Rowland, my best pal, went to Jacksonville, Florida, while I went to Ft. Leavenworth. And that is the way It goes. One can nover tell when ho -will get orders to pack up and get ready to move. At present I am seeing very little excitement. I guess 1 am aoout as far from the scene of action as I can get without going over into Spain. It seems to me that every time I transfer I get a Jlttle farther away from the main attraction In this war. Well, here's hoping we get the kai­ ser's goat soon, and from all appearances I believe it won't be long until he puts up tho white flog. Until then be patient, and don't worry If you don't hear from mo regularly, as the mall service is not the best. Tell everyone hello, and good luck. With lots of love, 1 am as ever, your son. JOHN D. Rich granules of swe«t, nutlike flavor Crape-Nuts Delicious Economical 1 Has Been In Fight Followtng Is a letter from Corporal Harry Harris, who is In the 2nd Kn- glneers. He has been """in the very thick or the fighting, and tells about It. His letter follows: Aug. 3, 1918. Doar Doc: 1 haven't heard from the boys of Reno No. 99 for quite a while. I think It was the first part of'June when I last hoard but since then we have been on the move pretty much of the time and our division, the 2nd, together with Allies' division has shown the Germans, even to Uieir picked troops, tho Bavarian and Prussian Guards, that tho Americans are superior to them In any old kind of fighting they -want to start. But 1 have never seen so much de- Btrur.tlvenoBs caused by the Allies' ar. Ullery us I did on the last drive. It was almost Impossible to got around with truck or wagon where tho Germans had been and the woods wo went through after they were driven out were certainly shot up. . I saw moro than one perfectly good "boche" tbut would nover do any more of this dirty work and in some places they were pretty thjck; And talk about war material, I-saw about everything they have and use in this kind of wartare: also places where they tried to blow the trees down but after getting tho charges set were unable to explode, then they threw their equipment, clothing, ammunition, nails, engineering tools, and ayerything that they didn't really have tf*d to them wag left. Best regards to all the boys. F. U T. KAKRY O. HARRIS. iai Euglnoer Train, A. B. P., A, P. O, No. 701, France. Feeling Ov*r Th«r*.

I haven't been sick since we came over here. Well, mother, there is nothing to .write here that you would care to know about. We keep moving about all of tho tim e and for some reason I haven't gotten any letters from the states for nearly three months, so when you get time, why write me a few lines just to let me know that you aro all right. So good-bye. From your son and brother, ROY. Tells of Gains. Sgt. John B. Loucks, who is in Co. E 2nd Engineers writes that they have heard of their many gains.
