A 3iear-Fire Sunday Morning
.(Written for last issue.)
There came near being a fire to be
heard from Sunday morning, but the
alarm and spread of the fire was prevented
by the presence of mind of
tiie young lady chiefly concerned.
This young lady, who is quick as she
is beautiful, was in the stoveroom
that morning between 10 and 11 o
clock, when the window curtain
caught fire by being blown to the
etove. It 'blazed up in a hurry and
was looking serious, but the young
lady didn't go into hysterics and
wring her hands (neither the dish
towel) and look Miotic; she grabbed
the dish pan (because it had water
in it, and threw it at the fired curtain
as the tyaze was licking up to
the ceiling, ut in throwing up the
water she also threw up knives and
forks and other things; which sounds

breakfast and wanted to go to
church. Finding that a dishpan mixture
was no good she gathered buckets
of water with th* rest of the fam.

The damage was the destroying of
the curtains, te burning of a chair, i
a coat and a cloak (or a coat or j
cloak we forget which, she looked i
so pretty in telling it). While work-1
ing on the fire the young lady got j
her front hair singed a little hit and '
scorched her face; but it didn't hurt
her looks, it added to the beauty of
her complexion, as the touch of the
heat made a glow on her cheek that
looked like the afterglow.- But she
did a good thing in not sending in the
alarm, ias it kept the fire bugs from
fcaving to respond and get in the way
of their going to church, along with

Bryan announced that he favored
Wilson for tile nomination and upset

ANOTHER LETTER FROM THE

in Fifteen Days, which, as Bugler
Dennis of the Signal Corps
says, is uSome Walk."
Carol M. Dennis has. written another
letter home. It has been our privlege
to read the letter, from which
we gather some notes for the information
and pleasure of our readers. The
letter is dated Fort Bliss, Texas, September
28, written in the camp of the
Machine Gun company, 1st S. C. regiment
of which he is a member.
Among other remarks 'Carol tells
it. that he has to be up "at 4:30 every
morning now, as we <are in the midst
of a series of sham battles." That
was preceding the trip up the Ri?
Grande. Then he shows an eye for the
beauties of nature as follows: "I wish
vou could; have seen the sun rise this
morning. It was beautiful rising over
the mountain. The mountains here

last Sunday morning, .he says:
"They are trying to get us back for
fair, but there isn't any chance. We
are going to get 75 more recruits .from
Fori. Moultrie soon.''
Most of the letter is of a personal
nature all the way through, except
here and there a little bit which we
"extract" from it.
His friend's here will be pleased to
know that he is " in good condition."
He says in one place: "Anouier ieilow
