Suppose you use 536 elec trical horse power or 400 kilo watts of electricity a year. Delco-Light will make an av erage 4 kliowatts to the gal lon of kerosene. Therefore if you use 400 kilowatts, this means you would use 100 gal lons of kerosene a year at a cost of 20 cents a gallon. Thl. equals $20.00 a year opes . cost for fuel, or in twenty Years $400.00. Let us suppose, however, that You had to use gasoline, which cost 35 cents a gallon.

The following letter to Charles E. 1Taylor, editor of the Producers News, from his brother, Priv. Fre mont D. Taylor, Art School Detail, A. E. F. France, who enlisted in the Artillery branch of the United States Army, upon the declaration of war a year ago last April, being graduat led with honors two months later from Macalaster College, St. Paul, Sby having his diploma placed in a chair draped with a large silk flag, in which chair appeared his name wrought in flowers, with the infor ,mation, "In the Service of- his Coun try.",' This young man worked his own way throbgh college, completing the "prep" and college work, eight years 1 of school work in five years, being made a member of the honor society in his sophomorg year. Dkring his career at school he be came widely known in college cir cles because of his literary products, which were quite versatile-writing serious and humorous prose and poetry in a large range of style. Before he enlisted as a private in Uncle Sam's Army, he was honored t by having three of his poems pub lished in the year book of the Shaskespearean society, a book pub lished yearly containing the best poems on the English language, written by young writers throughout e the world. i The Producers News is arranging t to have this young man write a d column or so of his impressions each o week if we can get his letter that of ten. We are sure bur many readers d will find this young man's letters very interesting, for his heart is an the cause of democracy, both on the o battle fields and here at home. Pvt. F. D. Taylor Art School Det. O P.' O. 711 A. E. F. France a' June 12, 1918. Dear Charles: As I long ago realized that I can not expect more than one ltter for two unless I let the debt go out lawed I might as well come across with the rake off. The folks have let me know your whereabouts and your immediate. plans and prospects. We are having weather just as dry as the winter was wet, in other words we have an annual seesaw be tween Oregon and Texas. The steady winds keep it pretty cool in spite of the hot sun. Speaking, of meteorology, I notice the discovery of a new star. An propos of the theory of origin of stars may be this is the star of a new world conqueror! This theory is as good as any and better than some! Who knows if the event of the enlistment or draftment of some future Napoleon may not be worthy of being recognized in the celebrated service flag ? " Pay day tomorrow! I could write a little moral essay on the different suggestions that these words make on the various soldier minds, but I will only say, "Fancy." To me it means fresh butter, watch mended, trip to--- and a couple of French novels, a little "vin rouge" or "cidre buche," couple strolls to where there is a lake and a girl that ,I know. I am still a young manl. "n'est ce pas?" How do you like Montana? Hoe about homesteads out there? Are they worth while and will they ev er be real homes ? French farming' seems very trif ing to American eyes, but perhaps they know best how to manage their land and other resources. One has to know what they aure aiming at Edore one can criticize fairly. A girl at the village of------sked ine how many soldiers I thought had gone from that place I said forty. She said two hundred.. So I gess a p many people manage to grab a R'lug or th.se farm. s Th.' lands rs m.ht in need f labor snce the ar of cearse. When' one looks at e. litt tlesls sad 1w pOckeld 8la b4 then coasiders the enon o war debts it makes one think of iks without straw. Do you havd in mind the old .halit of kings. of reducing the weight of coins in or der to pay war debts. Nowadays _. they have a better way--they raise d the prices and keep them there--Who pays? .The revolution in Germany is, I , believe, really imminent. The mid dle classes are about to cut away i, from the Junkers. They are begin e ing to demand constitutiohal conces a sions and that is a good sign of a r revolution. Strikes and peasant re volts don't count. They have no r means of supporting themselves and they will sell their souls for a a square meal. Yet as to me I don't believe that the revolt in Germany will really occur until after peace is declared. Do you know it seems to me that the less that rebel .demand the more difficult they are to pacify. What has made most revolt failures has been demanding too much. Life here has come to an equilibri um so to speak. We need something to shake us out of our dope. We are ready to believe any rumor that tells of change. I wish I could tell you some of these wild reports. We get plenty of music nowadays. the bands gets out and play before reveille. That does not Mtend to put the soldier into sympathy with the art of Chopin to have it served before breakfast. It goes better af ter supper. I have charge of the lines on the firing range now and I get a lot of walking out of it. I will be compet ent to handle a telephone company in a rural village when I get out in to blue serge again. I can make a dandy splice in copper wire now for one thing. We have movies and speeches at the Y. M. huts nearly every night. One last night happened to show "Joan of Arc" herding sheep. She looks amazingly like about a million other French girls that we have seen "ga-der la vache," Well, Ishope you can get something out of the rambling epistle for I feel as though I hadn't had an idea since "Heck was a Billy Goat." I guess I will do some "dough boy drill" just to make me up and then go up and pull a machine gun to pieces and put it together again in so many min utes. If you haven't time to write tell the "Mrs." to do so, for I surely will be glad to hear from the both of you. Sincerely, PVT. FREMONT D. TAYLOR. Want Ads in this paper bringi quick results.
