As usual, we, Tho fifth Field Artillery, started it off, at least a part of It. Wo worn on our way to rest camp from Fleardy when wo wore changed to another direction very suddenly, and for two days wo did some of the fastest, hiking I hope we ever have to do. W'o hiked until the men and hor- sos played out and then tho guns and men were carried on tho trucks. No one know where or why we were going, but nil suspected and were eager to eel there. The nearer we got to the front the greater the gain on the road became, trucks etc, until It was Tar worse than a busy city street. We did not stop a minute for anything and about four o'clock in the morning went Into open position, by the side of a road on a farm. The cannoneers worked like Rlavos to get tho gunB in place on time and the xero hour came at 4:30. Every gun in the whole regiment sounded off at the same time, and thoy wore hub to huh! The flight was on! if you ran imagine six batteries of one hundred and fifty five's firing as fast as cannoneers can serve them Wipm SERVia ^TATION While In Hutchinson you had better have your battery tested by experts.

This is a race, best 2 in 3, five-mile heats. Parker's Superior Shows! Every Day and Night! H. L Thompson, President, A, L Sponsler, Secretary, you have some idea of what It was like. In about IS minutes tho prisoner* began to come In, flr.u r. few, and then by the hundreds. They were a mighty seared looking bunch ot llumj. They all expected to be knocked In the head, (They may thank the IHvinc 1'rovlUence they Were not.) " In the afternoon the Infantry had them chased out of range, so we had to move up for anolher charge at them. We went up to where Iho fight started In the morning, and it was ' some sight." "(!ood Germans" lay everywhere; we were up as lar as their artillery hud been In the morning. Machine nuns, rifles and 77'n were scattered round in a fash- Ion to do a soldier's heart good. It was a grand good tight mother! Out- Hunting \va» dono on a broad plateau, covered with ripe wheat waist high, (what wasn't trampled down by tanks, shells, etc.) 1 had begun to think that tho day of open war was gone, but I know differently now. One battery of "B's galloped up in true movie style, ahead of the field infantry and Hred on the Huns with optui sights. We advanced In three days about 14 kilometers, which isn't so bad for the second "contemptible army" the kaiser has to contend with. We have certainly got the Huns goat between Solssons and Khelms. We were relieved by a British division and here wo are, sitting on Uie world, on leave with ImUis. new clothes, pay, (maybe), maii (maybe) and l'Yit7. still on the run. I'm still planning to help march him down the streets of Berlin to the tune of "Yankee Doodle." Some one of those mornings we will wake up to find we aro through over here. Do you know that a year ago yesterday we landed in Prance? It isn't such ti bad place when you get used to it. In that year France has very nearly become an American country. Now you sco American soldiers, sailors, marines, locomotives, roads, railroads, and every other Frenchman you see tries to talk English. Had great luck yesterday. Ran across a boy who used to work In the prtlco with me In St. John, we arc pretty good friends and talked oyer "old times" like two women. He is in tho Marine Corps, and is the first one of my old acquaintances 1 had seen slnco enlisting. Did I tell you the S9th division from Camp Funs-ton is in the next sector? They are a fine looking bunch and should make good soldiers. I hear from I'uul quite often but ho must be quite a distance from here ns it takes his mail nearly ten days to reach me. How are the girls and father, tell them to write soon and often, and not to work too hard. Love to all from John. CPL. JOHN' P. McGUinE, Hdqrs. Co. 5th F. A.

The eezem* started In small pimples, »fterw»rd» becoming blisters, and were like a hard crust, and were very Bore. They Itched Until I could not stand to have any clothes on,and 1 could not sleep at night for about six months. "I was told to use Cuti­ cura Soap and Ointment so I got them and after using three cakes of Cuticura Soap and two boxes of Cuticura Ointment 1 was healed." (Signed) Mlaa Muriel Young, Brlckton, Minn., Jan, 39, 1918, You may rely on Cuticura to care for your akin, scalp, hair and hands. Nothing better to clear the skin of pimples and blotches, the scalp of dandruff and the hands of chapping, Besides the Soap has no superior. tkaplt 1Mb ftM fcf HkU. AtMrrM peit-t»rtl: SvMettfk, Dipl.

Hy far the greater number of these packers are of the opinion that starch is not a proper ingredient of tomato sauce, and its Use Is simply Uiat ot a substitute or a cheapener. This view is concurred in by the bureau, and in the enforcement of the food and drugs act the starch in tomato sauce used in the packing of sardines will be considered an adulteration.

The Older Selective Draft Men Didn't Rush Into Matrimony. Topeka, Sept. 19.—In a choice between war and marriage the older men do not show such a definite preference for tho single combat according to the records on file in the department of vital ututlstics. In the reports received by U KIs- llcr, acting stato registrar, while tho list of wedding ceremonies for Augusc Is higher this year than for tho lust five years, it is only a little more than half the number ot weddings reported In Juno n year ago when tho men from twenty-one to lhlrly-ono wen- subject to tho selective service call. Even Die Increase this mouth when Investigated is shown to be for the most part among the younger men. Presumably, the swains who have escaped tho trials of matrimony and considered from a safe distance the turbulent lives of those who assumed the responsibilities of a Benedict, prefer the short, hot fight with tho Hun to a contest that may wage for years and neither side claim a victory. June 1917 was tho banner month of the lust five years for the number of marriages lu Kansas. There woro 2328 woddings during that exciting 30 days which centered around the first registration for the draft. There are plenty of malicious tongues to attribute all those June weddings to an attempt to evade military service but the novelist or even the kinder hearted among the multitude are willing to accede a certain portion of theso conjugal knots to tho snares laid out by Master Cupid even though in some Instances he resorted to the glamour of war and a uniform to help him out. The average for August marriages during tho last five years is 1607. TUIB year tho total reached 16S0. A NEW RULINO. Starch in Tomato Sauce in Packing Sardines.

It means a perfect chain of Boiling Point Fractions commencing at about 95 degrees Fahrenheit and continuing without a gap to beyond 400 degrees—each fraction vaporizing at a different temperature. It gives smooth acceleration—an abundance of power and all the speed your engine is capable of developing.
