To the Lincoln County Leader: We left Vancouver the Cth day of December, 1917 at 7:45 P. M. We came up the river and out thru Spokane, Wash., and Into Idaho. We came thru Sand Point, Idaho the lake there la sure a lovely sigh t. There are three large steam boats running on it. The first place that I can remember after getting Into Montana was Heron. Lit was made up of a dozen or two houses and a store . or two. Came down by Thompson Falls and Para dlsce and .Into Missoula. There is a Fort near there by the same name, and then we turned down by Deer Lodge and Butte City, then on Into Gallatin and over to Billings then turned Southeast down thru Sheridan, Wyoming. We came arross the Black Hills of Wyoming and South Dakota. We only crossed a corner bf Smith Dakota (Southwest). In Nebraska we came thru Crawford, Alliance and on down thru Lincoln and then over onto a little of Iowa and down thru Bur lington, Missouri and down to St. Louis. Wte thought that we would get to see some town when we got there but ns we were nicely into the shipping part of he town we took a high dive and when we came out into daylight again we were ready to cross the Miss issippi river so all we saw was the depot and river. We came across mi. nols and Indianna to Louisville, Ken tucky and thru Frankfort and over to Huntington, West Virginia and frnm there to the American University at Washington, D. C. Arrived on the 14, of December at 3:00 P. M. Rtuvpii over Friday and Saturday came down to uolvolr about 25 miles below D. C. Wo came thru under Washington we did St. Louis. We came out on the car line to ML Vernon and then took our blankets and grips and walked the eight miles on into camp. We are on tire bank of the Potomac river. The river is on three sides of camp. The branch that runs on the west and north sides is about a half mile across but the one on the south side which Is the main river looks to be about two miles wide or more. The Government is going to put up a large barracks here. The one we are In will only hold about 1000 men. The 23rd r.n. glneers Co. D. Is camped on our drill grounds. They have four small houses fnd 59 large tents. Some of the boys here are surveyers and have layed out 50 miles of streets for the new camp which with this one will be named Camp Humphrey. The camp Is on the old plantation of Lord Fairfax. Some of tho bricks are still laying ou the ground and In the road there is an old grave :yard near by where the house stool. This camp once was an officers training camp and while they were digging trenches they dug Into his grave and had to fill up part of the trench. There Is a cross standing by his grave now, an old one. The river has been frozen over for the last month. From where the building stood you can see up and down the river for miles. From here we can hear Uncle Sam trying out his big guns. Yours truly, Brown Brothers, Camp Ilelvolr, Va.

C. KURTICHANOV AT WASHINGTON, D. C. Washington, D. C, Feb, 2, 1918. 820 Kennedy St.. N. W. Mr. F. N. Hayden, Toledo, Oregon. Dear Friend: I promised many of frlenda Wk there when I left that I would wrlto and tell of my work here and my trip enroute thru the columns of the "Lea der" but so far I have been too busy to De able to wrije. I arrived here Just a week am tn. day, after six day trip from home i Washington, D. C. I was very much dlssaoDointed in regard to the Journey here as we pass-' el all the most Interesting nlarna t night. We left Portland Mondav about 8:10 P. M. and consequently missea tae entire scenic travel along the Columbia and Cascade Mountains. About 10:30 P. M. of the first even ing oat, from Portland, we ran Into now and I han't 'seen anything but snow ever since. The snow was no where a font rtnon on the level until we got past Chicago, but It was drifted against fences and buildings several foe deep. The ther mometer registered around lero moBt of the time and that was the coldest I ver saw. It was rather Severe on such a moss back as me. The snow was not deep enough any where to seriously impede the traffic, as one would have Judged from the newspaper reports-The Northern Pa cific train over which went was on schedule time to Chicago, and from there I went via the Pennslyvanla R. R. reputed to be the fastest train in the U. S., bet it was five hours -late from Chicago to Pittsburg, and, and three hours late from Pittsburg to Washing ton. I arrived at this place Saturday A. M. I found it the nicest city I ever saw and also the coldest end the most congested that I ever saw. On account of the many new Government em ployees it is almost impossible to go anywhere except by walking and that is very crowded. After office hours I have often waited as long as one or two hours before I could find a car that I could crowd on. I am working as a typist in the of fice of the Quartermaster General, at the War and Navy Building. It Is the most massive building I ever saw, (except a few more big ones here too) covering an entire square and about six stories high. The snow is about fourteen inches deep on the level here but In the City proper Is Is piled up several feet high. It h also packed like ice by the enor- mus traffic so it makes it very danger ous to try to venture out afoot The worst thing tho Is the great shortage of coal. One can get only so much at a time and then not always as be needs It. The people here are the most un obliging and often impudent taken as a whole I ever saw. if any of them have any thing to sell or a room to rent or toko a boarder they Biiitly make the word "Extortion" look cheap. But the best trait In nearly all of them is that everyone is trying to do his "BIT" for Uncle Sam. I have found several Oregnnlans here and It seems almost like a family reunion when we meet, In this far off land. Well I must close as I am writing this during office hours and must at tend to duty or at least to some of It. I will be very glad to hear from any one personally as well us thru the Leader as I havn't had any mall from home yeL With best wishes to the Lender and to Lincoln County, I am, Your friend John C. Kurtichanov. ON A TRAIN FROM TEXAS TO OHIO WE left Old Kelly Field one day And on a train we went away. That train it swayed from side to side. We were started then on our big ride From Texas 'cross the Great Divide. From there we went to get our stock We left San Ann at three o'clock. The boys were glad' they were being - sent To Ret away from Texas stale, For they hud it very straight That from that state wo world go From their to Fairfield, Ohio. Now, on a train there's lots of fun Provided you don't want to run. You always have tho time to write If you're not put on guard thai night. For then you'll have to sleep all day So that the daylight fades away. We passed thru many little towns But never were we met with frowns For the people know that the soldier boy Has a life that Is not full of Joy. We crossed the Mississippi on a barge; It held six cars, it was quite large. It took six cars, did this old boat We were halt afraid it would nt float And when the skipper hollered "Ho", It was a slunul thai we would go; From there on our way to New Orleans Before the chef had cooked the beanR. Wo ulo tUoKo beans, and they were fine As wo sailed. along the I. C. Lino Over the prairie and thro woods of pine Till we had reached tho Mississippi line. As we started on thru Mlnslcslp The engineer lilt up quite a clip. He went nlong at 40 miles or more Till we stopped at Canton to opeu the door To give the boys the town awhile And each piotty girl coiuriuuica a smile At Canton the folks showed hospitality But most of the boys went off for a fpree. In that town we had fun galore The girls got kisses and asked for more. We stayed there only two short hours The only thing we couldn't find was flowers. . Then on our trip we started to go Still bound for Fairfield, Ohio. We left Mississippi over night Of old Tennessee we never got sight It was sure dart, dark as pitch And we went thru Tennessee with- out a hlteh Next morning when the day grew bright The porter said "Kentucky In sight". Now we're traveling thru Kentucky Still going along In the old I. C Oiilng thru hills of red, red clay With Ohio still many miles away. We haven't reached old Fairfield yet But when we do It's one' safe bet That we will try to reach the place Where we loft behind a pretty face. We left that pretty face back home for we had many miles to roam And maybe we'll have to cross the foam To fight for the loved ones at home. We may come back some day to find The little girl we left behind With a fellow who didn't go to war Someone she didn't know boforv 4a4fifciIij:A. ? . .,4; YOU COOK YOUR YOUR TOBACCO?
