Mother, I hope you all will have a
good Christmas. Wish I could be with

g?ess he has.
There are sure lots of soldiers
lover here, all wanting to come home.
I saw eighty trucks full in one row, it
was- ''some" show. I will have lots to
?tell you when I get home. Sure have
seen a lot since I have been over in
France. All the buildings are made of
stone. I saw some buildings that da
ted back as far as 1750.
Mamma, there is one boy that has
been with me ever since 1 have been
lin the army. He is from Rock Hill, S.
;C. He certainly is a fine boy, says he
is going to visit me when we get

HERRINQ m\Z?? 2? W?\
Splendid Catches and High Pricer
Have Been the Rule Among Them
for Many Years Now.
The herring fisher works always on
the night shift, not because the Ash
feed nt night-herring take no known
bait-but because they.can be seen at
Taking their cue from the whale or
seagull as to the location of the her
ring, the boats go olT two hy two (for
they work always in couples) late in
the evening to the Ashing ground. Ar
rived there, they stop their motors,
and gliding silently over the dark wa
ters they look for the fish.
One of the men humps the anchor
I two or three times on the bow of the
boat, and instantly a patch of water
lights up with a bright phosphorescent
gleam. It is the berrin?:, and the ring
net (now more generally used in the
west of Scotland than the drlftnet) is
lowered. It is held up by corks and
has a small light at one end. This
the partner boat picks up; they circle
around the herring until the two boats
come together, when most of the men
climb into one boat, where they draw
the net, with the herring, on board.
In this little Highland village the
men of the last two generations have
done well with the fishing. Their
boats, complete with nets and motor,
cost between ?800 and ?400. but only
the other night a couple of boats, own
ed by brothers, divided ?750 between
them for one night's catch.-London
COMFORT BAGS PLEASE ALL
Nothing Given Out by the Red Cross
ls More Appreciated by the
Soldiers on Service.
Tho following is an extract from a
letter of a Ked Cross hospital repre
''The men like the comfort kits bet
ter than anything the lied Cross gives
them. AVe have asked dozens of them
what they like best of all that is given
them-tobacco, magazines, amuse
ments, etc.-and they all say at once
the comfort kits and toilet articles.
They come in from the front without,
even a toothbrush, and when. I send
the bags around hy the other patientsT
they come back and say: 'Say, you
oughter see how pleaded those guys
were-they said it was just like Christ
mas. They were all sitting up in bed
looking at the things in their bags.'
"The other day one man who had
lost his right hand, called me over to
him and said: 'Here, I'll donate my
sewing-kit. My wife has got to do
mine after this. I'm out of it. Yoj
can give this to some niher fellow who
needs it.' He had heard the others
asking for sewing-kits all down the
ward. They are in great demand and
very hard to get."

Horsemen Knew Their Business.
The value of having practical horse
men in charge of remount camps is
shown in provisions made for shelter.
When it came to building the great
depots requited at each nf the camps
they ordered open sheds instead ol
barns-or for the severe northern eli
mntc. sheds closed on one side. Tc
the dty-bred humanitarian who saw
thousands of Uncle Sam's horses and
mules standing out in the cold, this
seemed cruel, and complaint was en
tered, lint by practical test it was
shown that the horsemen were right
Those animals which were housed ur.
did not thrive as well as tjie ones
which were kept in the open. AVher
talking with the head of the remount
division the thing he was most prone
of was the fact that our horses wen
kept lu better condition with fewei
losses, than the horses of England oi
France, and that we did this with ?
