NO MERRY WIDOWS IN
COVINGTON.
It wi'l be remembered that two
I soldier ooys of Camp Shelby recent
V re toed letters from young
ladies' and merry widows. Accord
na : the following postal from W.
D. C., the young ladies have come
acrre, oiu there is a wail of dispair
as far as the merry w'dows are con
cerred. i hall it be said that St.
Tammany pariah has no merry w~d
ows? That Covington, the little Ntw
York of C.upid's s-y maneuvering, is
likewise deficient? Something i
wrong, boys. Didn't go over the top
in time or haven't waited lcng I
enough for resuills. They were
here all summer, laughing behind
their fans, and you can see them
now, rubbering every time a uniform
gasses. Something must be wrong
with your postoffice up there.
Here is the postal:
Camp Shelby. Miss., Dec. 20.
Dear Editor:
Many thanks for the write-up. It.
was fine.
Have received 'several letters, but
all from young ladies.. You do not!
seem to- have any merry widows in
Covington. I also received mail
from Slidel and Violin, La.
Wishing you a Merry Xmas and
ppy Naw Year, I remain,

blessed to give than to receive." A
large basket of toys, fruit. gDeeries

celebration and its object lesson, tie
duty and pleasure of giving. Mr.

great free country and that we are
not across the water in the n:d1
of the carnage of war.
Mrs. Dan W. Davis was chairman
on distribution -of presents and at
tended to the delivery of pa-cag+
to the various families to whom they
were assigned.
The beautiful decoration '. the
church was the handiwork of Mr.
John Halter. On entering the ves
tibule, in the softly shaded light 'sas
disclosed a wounded soldier lying on
a cot. Near him a Red Cro's nuire
ministered to his needs. Woile il
