The experiences of chaplains who have already seen service are quoted to them. The short course does a lot to prepare I hem for effective service. Near the parsons' school a few dayB ago our engineering corps, was boring for water. Closo to tho surface of the ground, which is very historic soil, they came to a stono coffin 'in which were the sword and shield of an early crusader, and 110 ancient coins. These ure kopt at at the chateau as a constant reminder lo chaplains of the crusader nature of the present American Expeditionary force. I heard of several experiences of chaplains. One addressed a regiment before It wont into action for the first time. All he said was, "You men go In and fight as hard as you know how, first committing yourselves to God, and 1 promise eaeh and every one of yon that you will go through this first fight safely." The men carried their objectives without Ltio loss of a man. Too Much for Him, Another chaplain had allowed the exeiiemenl of the front to got on his nerves. When a brotlier chaplain was leaving headquarters to go up to tho front line, Ihe nervous ono begged him not to go, that the risk was not worth Ihe results as the men when fighting were In no mood to talk to chaplains. A short time after the friends had gone (lie uneasy chaplain fainted when a 'bee buzzed near his ear, and was later killed tho same day by a long range shell. The other chaplain conducted the funeral services. Another experience of o chaplain did not occur In a tense zono.of battle, but In the beautiful gardens of Versailles. The chaplain was out walking with a Y. M. C. A. secretary and found some w^>uieii dipping ba,by clolhes In a fountain. Tho Y. M. CA, secretary could talk -I<>onch, and his questioning of the women elicited the informal Ion that erring glrla of Paris always immerse their babies' clolhes in Hits particular fountain to Insure a blameless life for Ihelr children. "We learn something new about virtue over)' day," declared the chaplain, ' Mr. and >frn. C. II. Fowler of 106 Osborn street, recolved n couplo of letters from their sons, Wesley and Orvllle who are In netlve service in France. The letter from Orvllle follows; Atig./th,i91S- Dear Mother: I will try and write you a few tines this rainy day to lot you know that 1 am well and feeling fine and 1 hope all of you are the same. All It has done for the last week is lo rain. Wo are In a good sized town hack of the lines taking a rest, but tt Isn't very much rest we gel for they keep us drilling nil of the time. 1 don't know how long It will I HJ before wo go back Into Ihe trenches, and I don't care very much. I have seen In the papers that a couple of Hutchinson boys have been wounded. Saw a pleco in tl)e paper that General Pershing said that we would eat Christmas dinner at homo but 1 don't think he knows what ho Is talking aboul. 1 haven't got any mall from you or anybody else for over a week. Well It Is about time for chow so 1 will close, With love to all OR VI 1,1,8. August S, I9IS. Well, 1 received a letter from you yesterday evening. I will try and an. swer It. I had the best time last night thai I ever have had in Franco. We went lo Ihe theatre and heard a couple of real American ladies sing, and believe me, it w-as sure fine. Well, I don't have any Idea when this darn thing will end, but 1 hope It. won't be so very long. The Americans and French sure have been raising li up there the last two weeks. Well, 1 will close as 1 can't think of anything else to write and what I haye written isn't very much and doesn't amount lo anything. So write a-« ot- len as you con for I like to get letters but don't like to write them. With! love to all. OHVILl,E. The letter from Wesley follows: Aug. 7. 191S. Vicar Mother, Father, Brothers and listers: 1 will now try and answer your letter which 1 received today. Believe me it was certainly welcome as it was the first 1 have gotten for more than a week.- Orville got one from you today, loo. His was No. il and mine was 1 No S. We are in the same village j that his company is in now. I don't i know whether you can read this or 1 not as 1 am lying down trying to write and doing a very }>oor job. if you can't read it you won't miss much.for there Isn't much oin it anyway. We got a bunch of lluu'hinson papers loday, too. Maybe you remember the letter that Paul Black wrote about the submarine in The News Juno 13. I saw all of that. Saw the submarine before a shot was fired. It was just like he said. Everybody • was too excited lo gel scared and everybody r was curious lill the boat drill souuded and then everybody made for the lite- boats. I saw the best thing tonight that I have seen since we have been "over here." There were- two "honest to God" American ladies here tonight and held an entertainment for us. Believe me it was certainly line. They are V. M. C. A. workers and don't do anything only entertain American soldiers, and they are certainly good at it. I don't know when we will have to go back to the trenches, but expect Jt won't be long. The sooner the belter for us. Well, I've written about all I can think of now, so will close for tonight and write some more tomorrow. Good night. it has rained every day for just about a week now. Tills country is just like a sponge, It is so wet. Well, this is Friday evening and I will finish this letter so I can mail it when I go to supper. Yon won't get any allotment for duly so don't look for It. Well I don't know anything more than 1 did Inst night so will ring off for this time. With love to all. WESLEY.

RALPH WAINNBK. Will Be Glad When It Is Over. Following Is a letter from Chan. Nicholson, who lives at Newton, and who Is a nephew of Postmaster S. S. Grayblll. He is now in a Base Hospital in France and writes tho following Interesting letter: July 29, 1918. Dear Folks:—I am laid up temporally at base Hospital No. 36, I had a very' sore hand and after treating It for several daj-s without effect the captain doctor saw I would have to go to the hospital, he tagged mo and on my way to the dressing station the wagon I was supposedly riding In, ran over my font and smashed all my toes breaking the large ones and medicar- ple. a bone In the ball ot the foot, so 1 kept right on coming. Now my hand and arm are practically healed but my foot will keep me here for several weeks. Now don't worry for I will be well taken care of here. There are lots of Hed Cross Nurses and good doctors. The Major who is in charge is a great big man and a fine fellow. When I came in and after I was bathed he came over to where I was Bitting on a bench and said "Now .lack just put your arms around my neck"and steer with your good foot and I will put you to bed". After I had had breakfast he. came around and wanted to know if I was In any pain, and he Just lifted the sheet back so easy nnd.lookeil at me. The captain doctor is a young man and he amputates so carefully and yet does his work so quickly. He amputates here and all the boys like him very much. j Boy Loses His Leo. j One fellow whose bed irnear-mlne is just waiting until he Is in condition to stand it, and then his leg is to be taken off. The Captain comes in several times a day and talks to him but he does not talk of the amputation at {all. he just talks about what he would , be eating if he were back In the States, and gives us all Ihe latest news from the front. |- The Hospital has nearly 600 wounded and there are ten others at the base. It is a wonderful French summer resort, and this hospital B, is one j of the fine hotels, it Is a beautiful stone building sfnd the rooms are grand. Everything is handy, there is ia big glass casino where.tho aristocrats of France and America used to gamble and a wonder flower garden and park. Much finer than anything I ever saw on. the coast We can't go out there in a bath robe though, so I will have to be content with seeing and loafing in aide for a few week3 but I am getting to be pretty good in hobbling along on crutches, The II. S. has wonderful hospital trains too, the one I came on to the base In was made up of Kansas men. I saw several men from Wichita and there were four Red Cross Nurses on. Say but these Red Cross nurses aie fine. Any one that has an idea of being a Red Cross nurse for tho adventure,I adviso to B.tay at home. They work 24 hours a day It seems to me I honestly believe they hike as many C[S R T CHT EVERY WRONG R IGHTED I M hotam 6i Hart fiduffiur U Man clotim WHAT ARE GOOD CLOTHES?- All clothes are good in the advertisement; and they all look good when you first see them. Of course they do; nobody would buy them if they were not good looking. B UT '-'good " isn't the looks of 'em. It is'nt style only, tho style's part of it. It isn't fit only, tho fit's Rart of it. Of course, if the clothes don't fit and stay fit, you don't have much style. "Cood" isn't color or pattern, however good these look to you. The important part of good clothes is the part you don't see, Better be on the safe side and come to this store for Hart, Schaffner & Marx Clothes They're as good inside as they look outside; that's a fact and we guarantee it.

Folks I actually realize what war Is, after what I have seen In ihe last ten weeks. Up where we made tho big gain it is simply terrible. The stench of the dead is unbearable. Wo had to wear gas masks a great deal, of the time bocauso we could not stand it,and there are many dead Americans This gain has been made by a saeil- flee, but the boys have met death with out fear gladly IJ it will only end the war sooner. I saw tho Colonel of our regiment and the Colonel of an infantry regiment weeping like children when they were making a trip over Borne newly gained ground and all-Ihe Germans had mother and sisters at home just like our men. It is terrible. Then these poor devils here in tho hospital with an arm or a leg or both legs gone—they will carry that as a constant reminder of what they have seen and done. We all pray that It will soon end. And then we go out and forget ourselves, forgot civilization and'almost forget God,-killing, killing, killing. I will back, the sooner tho better for every man is needed, and O what It is to know that you at home' have confidence in me. When our food has" been gassed and I hnve not slept for a long time, I Just grit my teeth and. think of it and then go a littlo harder, I can't tell you how lucky I have been In tho past fof 1 hane certainly had some close shaves but maybe your prayers are what kept these Dutch shells from coming any closer, CHAS.
