Mr. Leigh promised ttie hoys to keep In touch with them while abroad and last Sunday a letter was received by the class which they are sharing Willi the News readers; Paris, France, AUK. .15th, 101S. To the llest Teacher and the best Hoys in Hutchinson: 1 have, wanted to write to you Individually ever since my arrival in Fiance but have not found the lime, so am going to write to you all collectively and ask Judge to read this epistle to the class so you can ull get what little it contains. 1 received a dandy good letter from Morris Gallup that was forwarded to me from New York and was mighty glad and indeed pleased to hear from him; In my letter he asked me about a German helmet that I said I would try to get for the class room and you can tell him that 1 have It ami two rifles and a most murderotm looking bayonet blade that is carried as a separate weapon or used on the gun; think if 1 keep on collecting 1 will have enough to stock an arsenal before I get home again. 1 suppose you will ,want to Rnow a little about the trip over; it was a very pleasant oue and I enjoyed it all except two days when tho sea was rough and I was seasick; we had come thrills before we reached- Kodaks, Films and Supplies E. E. BLOOM & CO., Prists Agents Eastman Kodak Co. 305 North Main St. Kodaks, Films and Supplier The Germans apparently nuver expected to be ousted from tho St. Mi- hlel salient. They had dono much work in. building shelters and beer gardens and about the Soulvelu farm the country had been made to look like a prosperous (lenuan neighborhood with resorts when townspeople might spend their holidays. Utile cUihltouses were built und equipped not wholly In keeping with front line operations. The dugouts and shelters of the officers were fitted almost luxuriously, sonio of the larger oil's being fitted with bath tubs iind running water and lighted by electricity. Outside of many of them were littlo summer houses where the. occupants wero accustomed to sit and drink beer. SViieu (Uo Americans advanced Ihey captured a German mess sergeant who had bocn instructed to pack up and leave but who had underestimated the speed of the American progress. Mo was carrying a ijuantlty of beer and cjieeao and when he saw Uia Americans approaching lie did not run, but busied himself Ilk/! a bartender ami received them standing behind a table on which the beer and chocse wero ready for consumption.

In England; Several Days We Tiere In Bugland several days and had some little time for sightseeing; saw, Westminster Abbey, Par- lirnent Housed Buckingham Palace, the Towoiyof London and many other places oE interest; saw the King and Queen, Queen Alexandra,' Princess Victoria and a lot of other celebrities on the 4th of July at tho famous ball game between the Army and Navy boys; it was sure some game and wonderfully played; Tendon was very much decorated (or the celebration and the American flag everywhere displayed; even saw U, together with tho KnglisH flag, flying from Victoria tower on the House of Parllment; think of it, boys. When we left l^jjadon we went through a most beatitful country to the sea coast; everythng so clean and well kept that It wa« a joy to see it; saw somo great old castles, a low Manor houses and wonderful parks and gardens; think every a- vallable Inch of ground was planted with vegetables und they wero growing on the embankments along tho railroad and in places where probably "garden sass" never grew before. We hail a dolightful trip across the Engltah cbannePby-night; the sunset was glorious and the night that followed brilliant with search lights that played over the valor; we saw the Isle of Wight where Queen Vic^ toria used to live part of the year and nuiny beautiful towns along the shore, Rode Through Heart of France. We landed in France early in the morning and had several hours in the seaport town before leaving for Parla; were given a luncheon and put on tho train and hat) a long, slow ride to the "heart of Franco." I thought lOnglaud was beautiful but I think France in many respects more so; the whole country from— ——to Paris was a continuous picture of great trees and <iuuint villages smothered in vines and roses and hills and valleys were green with gardens and crops of grain; Baw many splendid fields of wheal and other grains and it was wonderful to realize that all of tho planting and cultivating had been done by the women and battered up old men; saw many women along the road working in the gardens and fields and in all tho towns and villages which we passed througu we saw women doing the work formerly done by the men; wo got to Paris at midnight and for onco was glad lhat wo had to ride on a slow train for it gave us a chance to seo.-so much of the beautiful country lying between the coast and Paris. Paris is a wonderful city and wish you all could see its great gardens and parks and the 'wonderful boulevards; If somo of the Class had their ears hern Ihey could speed over the smoothest and finest paving In tho world and we'd make a tour of inspection to tho numerous palaces, prisons, and cathedrals with which the city abounds; would like to show ir.o bunch the Tuilcries gardens and the Loiivro, the Hotel dea Invnlides iwliero Napoleaji is burled and some of tho other historical places about which some of you nave read; would like you to seo the places whcio our boys are taken care of lu tho city and how they.are looked after and entertained; one of tho places is ft palace that wan given by Napolean ill to his favorite Minister B nd U ft big, elegant place, very beautiful with paintings ind mirrors and a little too much gilt; 1 am to be Assistant Secretary there next week from 7 lo 11 at night—doing a double header all the Week—It will be hard vork but it is a great wo^k and 1 like It fine; I do not know just how long my assignment will keep We In the city but there Is more to do here than there are men to do it; 1 have had BDine very Interesting experiences In the Hospitals and my work with the boys has been a reul work and something 1 would not have missed for anything. Work at Hospital*. / When we help at the Hospitals we work until midnight unless it Is to visit and then we go In the afternoon and write letters for the boys and hear (heir stories and believe me, boys, they arc Interesting and worth hearing; found three American boys In a French Hospital one day and ont> very badly wounded who wanted to "change his ways" and join church and 1 had a long talk with him and found him a tfhe, little fellow and later when he was better" 1 had u Minister go out and see him and he was baptised; thiuk 1 helped u little, don't you? Jiust not forget to tell you that all three boys said they were glad they were in a French Hospital as they were so well taken care of. The French people are fine and treat, us royally; can't do too much for us and they have many splendid traits of character; it is a revelation to see how carefully they care for Ihe wounded German prisoners when one thinks of all the awful things the Iluns have done lo Ihe French. I suppose you have read about "Dig Deri tin's activities soure time ago; she made quite some noise and It was startling to hear the shells go whizzing overhead but the damage she did was slight, and think hev firing a wasto of ammunition; thlhk she has been located and put out of business recently. I will tell you more about her when 1 seo. you. " I could tell you some interesting things about the big fighUi and the soldiers who an' doing Ihe fighting but it. Is perhaps best to leave out the tilings that we are supposed lo leave'out so will keep all the war stuff until 1 get back; 1 see so many of the boys, boys «oing out and boys coming in from the front, so 1 get more of it than 1 otherwise might. 0 To Visit Versailles. Sunday afternoon I am to go with some soldiers to see Versailles and we are to be personally conducted by u "big gun" In one of the State Departments and his wife and w.ilT get to sec much of the palace that Is usually closed to the public; they took us through one of the old prisons one Sunday some weeks ago aud It was a very interesting trip; 1 wish you ^vere all here lo join our party. I miss Sunday School and feel that I'd like to bo in Hutchinson Sunday mornings and round up the bunch again for a half hours hard work? I know, however, that tho Class is being taken care of in good shape, and that it will be so far ahead of me when 1 get back that I'll ho-vo to go 'some to catch up again. Since landing here I have attended services in Notre Dame and ut the American church on the rue de lier- ~ri; the services at Notre Damn were splendid and the Archbishop of Paris officiated in all his glory of scarlet and gold and we were given seats close to the alter quite near the Ambassadors and Diplomatic corps; the services were in celebration of the 4th anniversary of the war jind the old cathedral was bright with the flags of tht Allies and flowers and hundreds of lighted candles; tin' music was glorious but as the .services were, lu French did not get it all. The orgnn in Notre Dame is very sweet toned but I would hate to furnish the power to "make It go" for It ia done by a sort of tread mill business and looks like real work to me; as the musical program wus extra long that day, suppose the motive power was "all in" when it was over; it was interesting to see the people follow the Arcbibshops car for several blocks after the services and stand bareheaded for his blessing. I have taken the time to write this to you all "In a bunch" and as my time Is so much taken up do not know when 1 can get to do this again but will try to keep in touch.with you as often as i can; I think that it Is up to the Class and to tho Judge to write to mo now and shall expect a good long letter from each of you. Please don't get the idea that you have nothing of interest to write to me for anything you send me wJH be of Interest to me and (Jie oftener you write the happier I will be; do you get me? If there are questions you want lo ask mo about Paris and the things 1 can tell you about, I shall bo glad to answer them If I can; if there are things you want to know about the soldierB here and the so called huts, ask me, and if your questions can be answered, I'll be glad to tell you what i can. This letter is full of best wishes to you all and 1 can think of no greater pleasure than to see you all again which 1 hope to do some, day when tho Kaiser Is licked "food and plenty;" 1 think he realizes right now that ho Is a "goner," but be has to havo some more beforo we quit. With my love to you all, 1 urn, Stncerely, A. B. Leigh, A. 11. Leigh, ..12 rue IVAgueBseau, Paris, Franco.
