Private Henry G. Gilbert, who was
wounded recently while fighting in
Prance as a member of a New Eng
land artillery regiment, writing to his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Gil-
bert, of Broad street, tells in the most
interesting letter that has come from
Danielson soldier wno- is -ngnung
'over there" of the experience of be
ing wounded. The : magnificent spirit
that is a guarantee that America will
witf in this war, a spirit characteristic
of the American troops,, runs through
the letter, which follows:
Somewhere in France,
' April 9, 1918.
Dear Mother: Here is a fine "to
do." I am in a hospital. I was "got"
by a "whiz-bang" one of those shells

you. One can hear the Big leliows
coming and has 15 seconds to dnck

Well, the first one hit a couple of
yards behind me and knocked me
head-over-heels into a ditch. There
I stayed until the mess was , over.
When I picked myself up.. I found my
shoulder out of joint and a bit of a
shell splinter in my leg. Now .1 am
all fixed, up and expect to be on duty
again in a very few days. Lucky, eh?
Can t tell you what has happened
to other of our men or the effect of
other shells. But I thmk, perhaps,
the censor will let this one incident
pass, since there are no dates or
places smuggled into the recital and
since you would surely be interested
in knowing what happened, in a gen
era! way, to your son.
We have experienced gas and.

hand us but they'll have to do better
than they have done if they break the
American spirit! They a nm half

The hospital Is fine, but, frankly,
would rather be "duckin' " shells. Ev
eryone here seems to feel the same;
there's a chap beside me with his ear
blown off and his leg's full of shrap
nel holes and he, even, dislikes the
inactivity. It makes one seem to feel
like ra. deserter to have the boys up
there where they never know when
they will have to duck for their lives
and you going to a fine, white bed
where there's no mud and no shells
and no danger.
I don't like it. I'd rather hear the
shrill whistle of a "whiz-bang", fifty
times than be fussed over by a pretty
young nurse whose gentle fingers and

letter is of a. personal nature and he
includes that he be remembered to his

Small Dog, Big Excitement
A little dog, owned "by" Robert Pel
lerin. escaped from his home, at the
corner of Franklin and Furnace
streets just before 8 o'clock Thurs
day morning and within a very few
minutes thereafter had succeeded in
stirring up a mild sensation and
gaining general circulation of a mad
dog scare report .
Just what happened to the dog to
make him act differently than he nor
mally, was in the habit of doing is
not known, but, getting up on to
Groad street, he began to act queer
ly and exhibit some symptoms that
are characteristic of dogs suffering
with rabies. Finally he made his way
on to the property of a Broad street
resident and was promptly shot by
Wellington E. Bitgood, a high school
It .is possible that the dog was suf
fering from a fit or some other af
fliction, but the number of cases of
rabies that have been developing in
Connecticut during the past few
months made tne case a suspicious
one and stirred up a little flurry in
the Broad street section for a few

and took a list of all the Polish
young men whose names appear on

young men in the district made up

Killingly, Woodstock, Bastford . and
Ashford. and he also made mention
of the fact that not one volunteer for
the Polish army has been obtained in
this local boards district, the only
district in Connecticut of which this
may be said.

TOTAL OF 294 MEN
Furnished Federal Service From Six
Towns Since Last June, ,
Figures compiled at the office of the
local board show that 294 men have
gone into the fighting service of the
United States from the selected -service
lists of young men in the six
towns since registration day, on June
of last year. This includes not only
the men who have gone into the army
through the operation of the selective
service law, but also the registered
men who have been given permission
to enlist in army or navy or who' en
listed before permission was required.
Remaining in Class 1 m this dis
trict are 144 physically fit men, gen-
the . same merciful ends. Mrs. S. I.
Frink of that place issued the' fol
lowing statement Thursday:
There seems to be a question in the
mind of eome people as to how the
funds for the War Relief Association
are obtained. The annual member
ship fee of course helps materially,
but when it is known that about one
hundred dollars is needed monthly to
keep material on hand for the sweat
ers, socks, shirts, bandages, etc.,
which are of the greatest necessity to
our sick and wounded floys. it will
be plainly seen that something must
be done. So far the funds Jiave been
contributed mostly by out of town
friends who have most generously
donated money, worsted or cloth.
Many of our village ladies spend one.
two or three afternoons a week at
the "War room while those unable to
get ' to the rooms are working none
the less faithfully at home. The
greater part of Our work is sent di
rect to Mme. Duryea to France, whose
grateful letters of acknowledgment
make us feel that we-are indeed work
ing for a most worthy object.
It remained for our patriotic citi
zen, "William H. Clewley. to devise this
novel plan. He is asking all who will,
especially the men, to join his Red,
White and Blue club by givinsr one
dollar or more a month to the "War
Relief Associations. He already has
quite a list of names and of course
more will be added. It is planned to
have at the semi-annual meeting of
the War Relief pledge cards and it is
hoped that these two schemes will
give the treasurer a definite sum with
which to carry on the work.
Can Enlist In Navy.
The local board has issued to Ken
neth H. Hamilton a certificate that
will permit him to enlist in the "United
States navy. Mr. Hamilton formerly
was a member of the old ,13th com

Thirty Men to Be Called.
The local board probably will call
