Near Hudun, France, My dear !': Woll, we had quite memorable (Mtrlnt iiium. On tho 23rd a couple of fnllow and myself went down to llur leQuc and bought aome necessary (MirlMntaa supplies, auch as nuts, (Iiii. cigarette, a little fruit aud sum's whio.

We put floora In except down t center where we put In about 3 Inchea deep of (ravel. It made uutte a regular place. Then we Invited the people of a Village near here, to dinner and to spend the day. The town had been completely shot up but Rome one hundred peo plo have maniiKed to find shelter there of Home sort and have returned. Home of the people have boon Uer man prixonerii since the beginning oi the wur and were taken to IlelKlum. Well, they dlun't net anything; to eat while prliionera and alnce the war I Kuemi they've Rotten 1h. 1'ln.t (liurt'li Hf'rvlce Iq Four Years Clirlntnwi morning two other fel low aud myself went down to the church In the village. It was tho firm aurvlro In four year and the old church in a wrtck. We went back to our Imrrucks to wait and nee If the people ruully would como. About ii oo ii they began coming, old and young. I guess they all come all right. We had c pretty good meal (or them and a good warm, dry place with good tublea to ent at and a Jaxx bund to hulp them along. We have a piano and together with a circular aaw und a couple of ooiub-cornols mid a cow bell and cigar box for lone, wo guve them aome real Jazi niualc. We guve them aome real American rag time and all the coffee they could drink and they aeometl to liave a mighty fine time. i'l'lie French people enjoy our reg ime luiuiKiiaoly (I have beard aome pt the people who couldn't apeak a vord oi f.iiKiimi ainging our popular nigs guile well.. 1 liey are used on 111 the ataKei It seems.

Mitkot Trip In IlelKlum I cun t remember whether I told tin of my little trip Into llelglum or it.

The people were far above the average French. r . Munition Going- Into Germany Wo will be illll tending ammuni tion Into Oermnny In aome quantltlea aoon and we are to ond twenty-five men along a convoy. I hope to gu, but am not sure of It la yet. It would be quite a chance to ee the country a fur a the armies of occupation ad vance. I should like the chance ,to get Into Germany. I am going to ge. a pa If polble before I roturn, but the chance re pretty illin right r.t present. Bh ,ulu visit Nice and Monte Carlo and -the nouthorn cities and I'arla. I ahull hove the necessary fund. The question ll In obtaining the pas. May be Home ttooa No, I don't think well be over here any longer because we're ordin ance. We have no connection w(tl any other ordnance than ammunition and when we're through, we're through, but If I got borne before summer I'll consider myself lucky. Five or six month more of thla desolated country will put a crimp In some people mind though, ,1'U venture to assert. With the war at rn end and a vlc toryw on It's going to be pretty hard fur most of the fellows to hang around and help clean up the country. Woll, here's hoping I can send you a lo'.ter from Germ-ny nnd luter from Nice. We have had a little snow and nhout as much Ice, but havo a plenty of German stoves, with German coal and charcoal. I am now living In a small cement building. I received a letter from you yeuter day. It waa the first I have received from anyone In over a month. Porhups mother will remeinhni that Mrs. I'oelo gave me a pair of fine, long white soxs Inst Christinas. Woll, I've never worn them In all thla time, but have carried them along always. I sort of liufed to get them Ulrty and wear them out. JJut I put them on Christmas day. They're very wsrm nnd fine. Uui I'm only going to wear them on state oc caslons and then only with shoes. lie sure and mention to her how they were appreciated. Well, perhaps, I'll get back to .the U. 8. A. sometime and get fed up anu clean clothes, etc., but It look doubt ful. Love from your ion, Hgt.

"FRAMING UP" FOR RAILWAY WRECKS Nowadays, through the medium ot the cinema. It Is possible to experi ence nil but tho unpleasant sensa tions of a great battle, a terrible rallwuy smash, or r. deviistatliis explosion. The heroism rnd the financial ex penditure are scarcely realized. T lie co Is one officer now at the f.-ont who has gone cut with his camera r.nd filmed the creeping barr.ge of tr.s own artillery, it is not surprising that he already carries two wound stripes on his sleeve. The filming of railway "thrillers" Is costly rather then d:ngerouB. bo great lu the demand for this tvoe ol film, however, thut Just before the war .there were at least two rr.ilway companies In America which made from 130,000 O 150,000 a rear In staging train wrecko for the "mov ies." One film company since its or ganisation baa purcluMud and demol ished enoueh rolling stock to fit oui a prosperous branch Hue. Arranging n rillway wreck Is a simple matter.
