You can iiottco the results of the war much Jnorn over here than In the States as all the men aro gone, nothing but kids and old toon loft to do the work also lots of women doing a man's work. It Is quite a sight to soo the country, especially tholr ways, wlilch aro BO different from ours. They aro away behind the times—about 1,000 years. The buildings are all built of stone—some being a thousand years old and considered a good house yet. Everybody lives In town—no houses on the ranches-. • The llttlo villages aro only a few miles apart. The farming hero Is regular patchwork. The grain fields arc about, the slue ot a largo garden In the United States. They arc harvesting here now and Uic wheat Is fine. They have the Deerlug blndor here—all 4 and G foot.cuts. Also lolB of cradlcB used. Their thrmhlncr machine Is a great machine only throBhlng about ten bushels per day. The weather here is rather warm with thunder showers quite often. * » * • Will close for this tinio by Baying I am well and feeling fine, only hoping it will find all ot you I he same.

London.—Undo Sam'a fighters, an American army chaplain finds, aro eager lo bo talked to about roligion, but, he says, "you can't fool the boyB with pulpit camouflage. Down In their hearts they crave tho vital things of lifo and eternity." Tho chaplain was discussing- services held In the Y. M. C. A. huts. "We usually open," ho suld, "with fifteen mlnnlcs of movies. A venerable preacher asked If that was necessary. Ho thought-it wasn't, and ho -proposed to put It to the men themselves. 'Doys,' ho said, 'I've como here to tell you something about religion. Would you like to begin right away or would you rather have a movie film first?' "A lull, raw-boned soldier stood up in the. audience. 'To hell with the movies,' ho exclaimed. 'Let's hear about religion.' "Tile boys don't come to bo entertained. What they want is to hear the simple, slucero and elemental truth of religion as thc preacher conceives it. There are certain subjects Loo It is wise to steer clear of. Don't- talk to them about drink and gambling and sex. They hear all they need of that sort of thing from the proper instructors. "And don't tnlk about spread-eagle patriotism. They have plenty of pat ; riotism of thc real sort. Don't tell how fine they are, for they-ve heard that until they aro tired of it. Besides, no real man likes flattered, and these fellows are real men. Above all else, when your horse sense warns you that tho boys are waiting with open hearts tor tho best comfort that roligion can give them, don't tell them funny stories. "Give them a message straight from i God, If you havo such a message in I yon. Suppose your son were going! away, perhaps never to return. What sort of a message would you give him? That's the message they want, and no other," • , •• .

Wichita, Kan., Sept. 13.—Elevators In Kansas with modern storage facilities will ho used by the grain corporation ^>f the Food Administration for. storage of government grain, it waJ given out today at the Food Administration. This means the government will keep wheat in Kansas and that more will be milled here- Not only will it be of benefit to tW millers but will help the farmers by providing them with mill feeds later In tho year. The government will' require elevators to giye bond when wheat is stored in the elevators. The ^government win then buy the warehouse receipts. Pull Information can bo obtained from Federal Food Administrator Innes at "Wichita or from D. F. Plazuek of the grain corporation, New Bnglvd Building, Kansas City, Mo. ^levators fit basic points are filled with wheat aud It U now necessary to U3e Interior., elevators. While the storing of grain in Kansas will help the mill feed situation somewhat, the Food Administration says there will continue to be a mill teed shortage. This is a national condition. Mill fjieda are abort everywhere. This is largely due to the fact 'that ships for the Allies are being loaded with wheat this ye»r instead, of with flour. It takes seven days longer to load a big ship with sacks of flour than with wheat which can be poured' Into the hold by wacWnery; Ip. |h'e present shipping shortage" the seven days tire too precious to be lost.
