Tho Y. M. C. A. provides 538 hut? In

which tho fighters can uso as clubs,
schools, theatres, stores, churchosy li
braries and writing 1 -?oms. More than
7,000 men aud women had been sent

work by early autumn and 8,822 were
serving In American camps at home.
Y. M. C. A. huts ore tho canteens of
the American Expeditionary Force and
are the theatres where the American
entertainers, sent over by tho "Y," ap
pear. Noted American public men and

The National Catholic War Council

down one of our balloons. The two

ruthless destruction of portions of
Erauce, Italy, Serbia and Rumania,
and ho helped In the great work of

tho bloody Hun away from tho homes
of our noble women and innocent
little children. We honor his mom

My bear Sister uno Ali:
i knoW thal you think thai J have
forgotten you altogether, but you see :
that I have not. In fact, since our !
arrival "somewhere in Franco" we I
have been so busy that I really have j
not had time to write to all as I ;
wanted to.
Wo are now living among thc
Prench people, right in their own
villages, and I can say truthfully that \
they treat us with all kindness. I '
must tell you just a little about my
trip across. I enjoyed the trip just I
fine and didn't get the least bit sea- I
sick; but it went pretty hard with .
some of the boys for tho first few j
days out.. We first landed some
where In-. All of tho cul
tivated land is prepared just like
you would prepare your garden for
planting. Have traveled much, train
and by boat, since I saw you last,
and I have done some hiking, too,
which I thoroughly enjoyed after so
much riding.
Maude, you must tell mother and
father not to worry about me one
blt, for I think I can take care of
myself, and more than that, we are
expecting to eat our Christmas din
ners at home. 'Our motto is, "Hea
ven, Hell or Hoboken by Christmas."
I guess you have already heard that
expression.
How are all of the folks at homo?
Am sure they are well and enjoying
life. Maude, did you think of the
second day of September being my
birthday? Really, I almost forgot it
myself. It doesn't seem that I am 23
yoars old, does lt-when we think

all just little kids at home?-you,
Albert. Haskell and myself. It scorns
but a few days. I would be so glad
to be back home this morning to go
to old Beaverdam with you. I can
Imagine now that I hear you calling
to me from down-stairs to "hurry up
or we will bo late." 1 know you bad
a good meeting this summer, didn't
you?
By tho way, how was the Marett
reunion this year, or did you have
it? You must write mo real soon
and tell me all tho news, for you
know il will do me a world of good

Well, .Maude, 1 could write you

but I will close and go to church,

Dear Niece:- .
I am feeling good to-day, enjoying
life and having a line time. 1 re-j
coi ved your nice letter a few days

you all. I hope all are getting along
tine, having good health and a good
time. 1
I have many interesting things of
which 1 might write, but will have!
to leave them off for a later date. 1
suppose you keep well up with youri
newspaper reading ?and know of the
victories being won by our boys. I
would be glad to be over In the States
to-day, but do not care to go yet, as
the war has not yet been fought to a
finish. I would be glad Indeed to be
back with you all again, but, on the
other hand, with my experiences now
behind me, I realize that there is yet
much work to be done over here,
and I think I can bo a better boy
when I get "back home." I am en
joying being over here, but my heart !
ls with you, and I think of you all j
every day. I can't realize that I am
five thousand miles away. It seems ;
that you a~e just "o"or the way" a !
short distance.
I hope iv bo .vith the \>o\* w.hen

hopo m bo back home some d?) ni :
good health, i feel that l can bo
happier than ever before, for 1 moan 1
to be a true soldier like papa was |
in the war between the States.
In your letter you ask if 1 rem em-j
ber Mr. Whitman, the old preacher
friend of mine? Sure-I think be ia
a fine man. and I know all of you
enjoyed being at his meeting and
having him with you al home. 1 j
have not as yet seen any one over|
here 'from home that I know, except
one boy from Liberty. Write me the
names and addresses of some of those
you know, and maybe 1 will see some
of them some day when . I am going
around. I mean just any of those
you may know to bo In the service
over here.
Tell your papa that I don't think
there will be any use of him coming
over here, though I know, how he
feels about lt. You know, to be in
the army in time of war is not alto
gether pleasant, but I have managed
to land on top every time so far.
