New York, June 12.—Henry J. Al

York welcoming the Kansas troops,
was asked what he thought of the
job of being governor.
f. "I shouldn't advise a young man to
take it on as an attractive and easy
occupation," he said. "The job has
not regular hours and is not, as many
belive, all indoor work. Being gov
ernor, is the only employment *t eVer
attempted which made running a

seem like an easy sort of job. Yet at

can't figure up wlierg.^the governor

"The most heai-t-lDreaking things
'"about my job is that when a man
goes into it he takes it rather serious

to keep a smiling front and go to pic

YANK READY TO
Watertown Boy Says Armistice
Found Americans Wilhng to
Stop When Foe Licked
"The boys of the'3G3rd infantry, 8flth
division were satisfied to quit fight
ing when the news of the armistice
reached tliem as they were waiting on
the banks of the Moselle river fc
orders to cross," -said Charles King,
the other day, in speaking of the atti
tude of the boys toward the declara
ion of an armistice. "They were there
to whip the Germans, and when that
had been accomplished, a cessation of
hostilities was agreeable to them."
After two weeks of inaction on the
Moselle, the 353rd was ordered to ad
vance into Germany as a unit in the
army of occupation, where Mr. King
saw service both at Treves arid Cob
len7

The (first atftion tne 353rd infantry
engaged in, was on the St. Mihiel
front, when they made an advance of
between 8 and 9 kilometers the first
day.They met with very little resisst
anee except from the machine gun
nests, as the Germans seemingly were
anxious to surrender. The men ad
vanced during the day and dug in at
night. Their heaviest losses were suf
fered in line rather than in advancing,
Mr. King stated.

prisoners to the Yanks, 'in' one haul-,
the enemy surrendering '^without a
fight.
The men of the 353rd infantry were
transferred to the Argonne sector af
ter their St. Mihiel experience, and
though the fighting was some of the
most severe of the war, the men did
not experience any of the hand *o
hand combats, as did those at Chateau
Thierry.
The Germans intimate It no
v,•ledge of
the country through which they were
fighting and their ability to hide ma
cine gun nests and artillery, knowing
the contour of the country, and the
accuracy with which the. airmen, with
the fiid of nearly perfect maps the foe
possessed, could locate probable allied
position which was of great assistance
to the- cntsmy in the use of the ma
chine guns and artillery, the effective
ness of which they prided thems,elves
on. •'_.•
Mr. King was with the headquarters
company, and acted as runner be
tween the line headquarters and the
2nd b&tjtalion during (the, engagement
on the St. Mihiel sector.
Mr. king has b*en visiting at South
Shore this week, and will spend some
time wi«h ..his: parents Mr. arid Mrs.

Mr. Atwatei1 has bSon connected

arrived yesterday.
Mr, AHvater has been connected
with the Armour packing company
for the past twenty-four years as a.
buyer of stoci. He Is a
vacation, and-, what is fine, hie Wr oft
the pension roll, of the tfreat i«icking
company, so that when he stops, to
fish or to cut bait he doesn't have ,io
worry abotlt where, his next meal is
coming from.
H. ,W. Atwater went Into Spink
county in 1879, when there was no
human being there excepting' old
Drifting Goose and his tribe of Indians
and it few whites who had begun to
appreciate the future possibilities,- 'pf,
the famous Jim river valley. Hfc
settled on a farm and hobnobbed with
Ike Ouimet, also one of the pioneers,
now in business In Watertown. Mr.
F. J. Cory- was another© pioneer of
the vicinity of Redfleld who became
acquainted with Mr. Atwater.
The second year he raised a crop
near Redfield, Mr. Atwater's .wheat
yield was 37% bushels to the icre,
and he had forty-five acres-, all Of
which, except what he saved for seed
for himself and one load which f'tie
hauled to Watertown, BO as to get a
little cwh for buying Christmas
presents for his family, he disposed
of. to homesteaders in and about the
locality. H-ence.^Mr. Atwater may le
said to have gotten pcquainted" with
Watertown when it was real y^ung
