Do you remember tho night of April
tho Fourteenth? That was the night
that we last saw each other. You did
not believe at that time, that in a
Bhort length ot time I would bo in
Franco with Pershing and tho Amox
Forces. A week later, 1 left Camp
Grant for Camp Merrltt. Right olt
tho jump things began to becomo in
teresting. First was tho attempt to
blow up our train, which was nipped
in tho bud.
Stayed In Camp Merrltt one week
which seemed like a year, nil being
anxious to start on our trip across tho
pond. It was there that wo wcro
fully equipped to play tho game.
Then camo tho march up tho gang
plank, to start our trip to (nobody
knew, or gavo a continental), as long
ns wo wero going to bo given n clmnco
to help convlnco tho Kaiser and his
Huns, that they wero not worth tho
powder to blow them to H , onco

know not whether wo would over
reach the other sldo, did not know
whether wo would bo nb'o to side
track tho many "tin llshos," which
wero oagorly awaiting us, Homowhero
In that wide oxpanso of water. Wero
wo worried? not a bit. If wo wero
to head for Davy Jones' Locker,

was a long ride, fourteen days, and
at times, I will admit, wo did feel
u w.o bit shaky and creepy. Who

It was our duty to watch for fires,

above all to keop our "glimmers" opon
for submarines. Very nlco pastime
indeed, if you like It, ha, hnl Tho sea
was rather rough at times, and tho
largo waves at tlmo resembled, at
night, anything from a sub to a war

with mnri amusing occurences. Ha.
ha! It waH not oxuetly right to laugh
nt n fellow, doing Parado Rest, at tho
side ot tho ship, and feeding tho fish,
hut tho expression on sotno ot their
faces was Irroslstlblo. I was very
lucky on that scale, as I was not sick
any of tho timo. It' wns also rather
amusing to seo a couplo of IC. Ps.,

cry sorry looking sight when thoy
reached tho bottom. It was also very
nice, when wo would all bo eating, to
have tho ship glvo a sudden lurch, and
our mess kits loaded with chow slide
Into a very neat pile, on the floor nt
the end of tho table. Tho languago
used In such Instances made It rather
warm below decks, and I do not think
that you would find any of tho words
in Webster's dictionary. A very nlco
sensation is to awaken In tho mid
dle ot tho night to find a rat, tho bIzo
of a bull-dog, playing hldo nnd seek
with your big too. Try It somo tlmo.
Our trip went along uneventful, un
til wo wcro about three, days out from
this side. Wo had already met our
destroyers, which wcro to guard us
the balanco of the way. it was about
midday, myself nnd a few others wero
bolow deck In our bunks, reading,
when, bang, bong, I thought thnt tho
cntlro ocean had been turned up sldo
down. Wo could not seo our hand be
foro our fnce, dust, plaster, etc., was
so thick. Bcllovo mo, wo suro did
mako somo speed, getting up on dock,
II fo preservers on, expecting to lmvo
to jump over board (toot swoct).
Howovor wo did not hnvo to. It
seems that ono of thoso gol darn tin
fishes had como up to attack, or get
Its bearings, and a destroyer spotted
Tho destroyer Immodlatoly dropped
n dopth bomb on It, and I understand,
put It out ot commission. Very good,
but I do not think thnt I would llko to
havo such an oxporlcnco very often.
So much for that.
It was on the night ot May four
teenth, that wo again felt, tho gang
plank under our feet, this tlmo going
down. Knch of us had 11 loaf of bread
undor our arm, and a supply ot tho
famous "corn-wllllo." Immediately
after leaving tho ship wo piled Into
n delightful French railroad car,
(something llko our wheel-barrows In
the States), to start on our journey
to somowhoro In Franco. Wo rodo,
(or bumped along) for about two
hours, stopped and unloaded In tho
city of Bordeaux. It was about two
o'clock In tho morning then, and rain
ing pitch-forks. Wo had to hlko all
tho way through tho city to reach our
camp. It was a very hilly section,
and marching up and down hills,
(most ot them scomod to bo up) 1b
no fun, with a heavy pack, and soaked
to tho skin. Wo i cached our now

tho morning, and then throw ourselves
down to sleep, any old place, it mado

It us nothing but dostlny. You would

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tik) is tho

prcssuro on tho nerves nnd allows
naturo's Ilfospark, or norvo energy, to

Tho causo ot disoaso, as tho Chiro
practor finds it, is a subluxation ot ono
or moro of tho vortobrao which doo
croaso tho size of tho opening through
which tho spinal norvos pass, and
implngo or press them, hence shut oft
n portion of tho norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho rosult will be
dlscaso, deranged functional activity.
A normal nervo supply to any organ
or part ot tho human body generates
normal function and maintains hoalth,
In adjusting tho vortobrao to ro
leaso tho prossuro, tho Chiropractor
uses and ncods nothing but his hands.
Tho wholo object of his work Is com
pleted whon this prossuro is romoved.
Nature doos tho curing. In somo cases
daily adjustments nro necessary for a
tlmo. In othor cases, howovor, thrco
adjustments a week will bring splen
