Well, yon see it is Just this way. We. were not allowed to .tend any mail home after we 'reached the coast. Neither were we allowed to give any information as to our whereabouts. However, I guess it is sufficient to tell you all that I am well and having a fine time. We have bad some pret-istomach.

Now don't gather from this that I am homesick and am feeling blue, because 1 don't have much time for either. It is awfully hard to write a letter under the present conditions on account of the strict censorship of our mail, I don't know hardly what will Bet by and what will not. My trip stalled at Leavenworth as you already know and extended east through Kansas City, St. Louis, Detroit, Windsor, Canada; Buffalo and New York City.

After all this Utile old game of war Is Uke. football, lu a way. For Instance, tn a football game, a fellow may feel nervous and shaky just before the kick-off, but with the first scrimmage the game gets into his blood. And he never thinks any more of the danger thun he docs of eating his breakfast. If there. Is any man alive who can describe the. big fight it Is only the man who has taken part in It and really, mother, I think il Is a very litUe of it lie sees of It himself. Really little or nothing. He looks straight before him. he thrusts, fires and cuts in a blind rage which runs through his overcharged veins like molten fire. There is something before come or kill.

The ABSORBENT METHOD Is a new discovery, absolutely different and far superior to any other method known. It Is known to only seven rectal specinllcts in the United States, and can be obtained in the West only in Hutchinson at this office, A number of Kansas people have taken the Absorbent treatment for' Piles since it was introduced here recently. You may ask them about It. Every cure guaranteed for life. W. M. Dodson says: "I worked every day while I was under the Absorbent treatment for Piles, and was^ cured completely without -pain or Inconvenience of any kind."
