fflwt 0o THIRTY-FIFTH YEAR. NORTH PLATTE, NEB., JANUARY 2B, 1919. No. 5 Movw CLAIMING: McCAHK TELLS OF CHRISTMAS IX OEIUfAXV. LOCAL AND PERSONAL JIBX A Jilt OA I CAX HE I HOME IX SIX MONTHS. Writing to hlH parents, Dr. and Mrs. McCabo from Obermendid, Germany, Clarence McCabo undor date of. Do combor 25th. in scrvico overseas, says: "Cliristmas Lay in' Obormendlg, Germany. This day will long bo re momborod, and I shall think of it at each Christmas time as the years pass, not because I am specially happy at this time, but bocauso of tho stran geness of my surroundings and be cause it is tho first peaco Christmas nftor tho war. In fact I may doscribo my feelings and emotions as thoso of sadness, as I passed the snow covered streets tonight. Glancing in at tho win dows, hero and there, I could see the Christmas trees with their dazzling lights, sparkling warmly for tho happy children within. They are happy, in deed, their Christmas has not been embittered by tho war, for they are not old enough to know. Last ovoning tho snow began falling and continued to fall until lato In the night, covering everything with a blanket of puro white. Whon it ceased tho clouds began to break up and drift away and when I woke early thla morn ing tho moon had come up arid was shining brilliantly on tho breast of the now fallon snow. Tho frozen pond down in tho field below resembled a pool of quicksilver, so brilliant was its surface. This morning dawned clear and cold -and tho "people began to pasB to and fro, going and coming from mass. All this time, all day, my thoughts havo bjoon elsowhero and thinking what an ideal Cliristmas this would mako wore I at home, back among tho friends I used to know and with my father and mother who lovo mo and whom I love. It will not bo long, I think until I will really be at homo again. Everything seems to bo running smoothly in this part of Germany and I cannot see any reason why wo should bo required to occupy German terri tory for any great length of time. I received twelve letters last night. They ctuuo just in timo for Christmas. Sovoral of them wore from you. It had beoon such a long time since I had received any letters, and coming ai this time, they holpetl to make things seem a little moro like Christmas. I know that you appreciate this peaceful Christmas after tho war. The war has been a tragedy to everyone, but I think that no one can ap'preciato peaco as much as a soldier who has como face to face with war's conse-'-nuonoes. What doea it mean to me? What if I wore this very night crouch ing in a shell-hole in no man's land expecting every moment to be blown 'to atoms? Instead God has given us peace, and I am able to sit here in tho comfort of a warm room and write to you. So you may know how I apprec- iato for the first timo In my life the following taken from tho Gospel of St. Luko: "And suddenly there wa, with tho angel a multitudo of the heavenly Mrs. E. A.
