"Rut Charlie has advanced another
idea. He says that he thinks it is n
tnml pup. Charlie never saw a mud
pup, he says, of the magnitude of this

were at least ten inches broad and a
yard long weighing about twenty-five
pounds. He also says that about five
years is the natural life time of a mud

The harvest home festival was sug

Platte. First reports were that the
Ford garage in that city had tfaged
the celebration, which was known as
"Fowl day," but according to letter re

was not the case. All the merchants
of the city co-operated in the festival
and all of them unite in saying that
it was a great success. Mr. Coursey

war story! "The American wounded
were being brought in from the sec

fussy American woman in a khaki
uniform and Sam Browne belt knelt
over a stretcher and said. Ms this case
nn oiricer or only a man?" The big
corporal who stood beside the stretch

Well, lady, he ain't no officer, hot
