American Expeditionary Force, in
Prance. The letter, which bears
date of Nov. 30, is as follows:
"Vichy, France, Nov. 30.
"Dearest Sister: Just a line to let
you know that I am in the land of
the living. . . .Although I am writ
ing this letter from the Base Hospital
No. 76, located at Vichy, France, I
api only slightly wounded. Don't
worry about me for I am getting
along fine. Will be able to be out
in a few days. I have been real
lucky, as our regiment went on the
firing line of the 15th day of July.
I could not tell you at that time, as
the censors and the army authorities
would not permit us to tell where we
were located or what we were doing.
. .Vichy is in the southern part of "American Expeditionary Force."

a medicine you must investigate its

this test, and plenty of proof exists
right here in Paris. People who tes

ache, kidney and urinary disorders,
now give connrjmed testimony de
clare the results have lasted. How
can any Paris sufferer longer doubt
Mrs. J. T. Martin, 1024 Main St.,
Paris, says: "Kidney trouble came
on from a fall and the results were
very severe, causing me more suffer
ing than the fall itself. No one can
ever know what I went through at
that time, for I suffered awfully.
My back ached and pained until I
thought" it would break in two.
Sharp twinges shot through my kid
neys and if any one had hit me in
the back with a heavy axe it could
not have hurt wdrse. In one week
after using Doan's Kidney Pills, I
felt like a different woman for they
fixed me up in fine shape." (State
