I found j Harry Graves at Camp Mills. He was looking fine. I suppose prices aro hitfh ard Roods hard to get. The shoes I sot before I left are Wineberg. You must be jretty busy if it took you so long to write that letter. If Pest leaves soon maybe I will Ket to see him. It sure is One that Art Clausen got in John "Wheel er's company. Of the fellows who came to Camp Mills when I did, Pete Henning has been made corporal. Uoesel and Milo Thomas are on the ship with me.

I have just sent Nell and Ann a handker chief apiece. Let me know if they re ceive them, I am in the best at health and hope you are also. I was to mass and communion this morning in a church that has thirty alters in it. They have or.e main alter in the center of the build ing and the rest around the sides. They started to build the church in the twelfth ctntury and finished in 1S60. It sure Is a swell place. I aTso walked across a bridge the Romans built. You know thfse towns were built in the early cen turies and are very old. I am writing this letter at work. I was working days, but chansred to nights for then I can to church on Sundays. They have a K. of C. chaplain here regularly. How everything at home? Hope it is the best. You received a card that John had arrived safe? That was good news. T hope I meet him. "Was walking into th Red Cross canteen tonight and a follow put his hand on my shoulder and said: "You are from Hammond; Murray i your name." I did not know him at firt. but then I recognized him. Nell knows the fellow. His name Is Uagen. CRYING FOR HELP Lots of It in Hammond But Daily Growing Less. The kidneys often cry for help. Not another organ In the whole body luore delicately constructed; Not one more important to health. The kidneys are the filters of the blood. When they fail the blood becomes foul and rolsonous. There can be no health where there is poisoned blood. , Backache is one of the frequent in-j dicatior.s of kidney trouble. It is often the kidneys' cry for help, j Heed it. Read what Doan's Kidney Pills hive done for overworked kidneys. Proof of merit in the following state ment: Mrs. Davie Milne. 771 S.

Dear Mr. Louis: Well. I am finally, after a year's toil tng and repairing. "Somewhere in Eng- j land" and I spent the Sabbath in an en- j tirely different manner than I would have in the good old V. S. A. We pa - i raded the streets of England and I was I kpt busy observing the many customs that differ from ours in the states. i Though the homes are all of the old 1 type, the surroundings are beautiful j and sure represent lots of care, tinre I and devotion. The good old Stars and ! Stripes are very much in display, in ; fact J saw as many t. S. A. flags as British. We "Sammy" boys, as the English call us, are held in high esteem by them. It is laughable to wiuwss a i group of our lads upon receiving a sum! of English money in exchange for that : of American, endeavoring to solve the I value of each denomination. But- with the assistance of a number of English soldiers the mystery is easily cleared. I It is now that we" are commencing to i authentically hear related stories of the ! various German atrocities and they are I shockingly described. The food is good i and not a crumb wasted. The weather j seems to have a dally habit of raining, j It may intert you to know that it is! the common opinion here that the war will end by this Christmas and believe me if it don't I pity those damn Ger mans as we are quite ready for the pic nic.

Sept. 16. Well, here it is the lfith of Sep tember and I have yet to see a Boche and get my hands on one. We are still getting ready near Bordeaux and I never was so fit in all my life. Got a dozen letters and several copies of The Times today and had a rich, rare feast. It was a night for sore eyes. We were sent to the rifle range all last week and yesterday I made some good scores at 100, 200 and 300 yards. If I ever get contact with a Boche at those distances, he Is going to drop, believe me. We will take up the 400, 500 and BOO yard distances and will then be all through. I have qualified on the range and it is "big town" stuff to see the way some of the lads have learned to manipu late the new- rifle. What do you think of the war now? The Hun is on the run and he is go ing to keep on running. The censor ship is getting stricter every day. or I could tell you a lot of things. Ham mond must be dead with the enlisted men and drafted men gone out of It. I do hope they clean out that bunch of slackers who were there when 1 left in April and there were plenty of them. Any able-bodied man who hides hehind a petticoat to get out of the draft oueht to be in jail and just watch those birds claim all the credit when the war is over. Gee, If they only knew how badly they are needed and could see conditions here, I know they wouldn't hang back. I certainly feel like a full-fledged warrior. I guess there's nothinsr I've missed up to date. My service record Is too notch and though I felt like answer ing sick call several times, the stiff tipper lip for me and haven't had a sick day checked aeainst me. On our long hikes I have yet to fall out, like some of the fellows do. Several of the kids say "look at Fa" stand the gaff," but when a 30-year-old guy like myself, with thinning hair can step off ten miles heavily loaded. U shows what army training does.

DARKEN mm hi Use Grandma's Sage Tea and Sulphur Recipe and Nobody will Know. The use of Sage and Sulphur for re storing faded, gray hair to its natural color dates back to grandmother's time. S'ne used it to keep her hair beautifully dark, glossy and attractive. Whenever her hair took on thut dull, faded or ttreaked appearance, this simple mix ture whs applied with wonderful effect. But brewing at home is mussy and out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking at i any drug store for a bottle of "Wyeth's j Sage and Sulphur Compound," you will gt this famous old preparation, im proved by the addition of other in- mrfirtiii which run be denended unon I to restore natural color and bcauly to th hair. A well-known downtown druggist ' says it darkens the hair so naturally land evenly that nobody can tell it has been applied. You simply dampen a sponge or soft brush with It and draw this through your hair, taking one strand at a time. By morning the gray hair disappears, and after anoihcr ap plication or two, it becomes beautifully dark and glossy. Veth's Sage and Sulphur Compound is a delightful toilet requisite for those who desire a more youthful appearance. It is not intended for the cure, mirigi tion or prevention of disease. Adv.

Bo Or Die Spirit Seen. As an individual offensive we deliver ed what one would call a mighty blow under the supreme command of General Pershing who was at the scene of the battle. W restored to France over 150 i miles of square territory. Acompany- ing us we were supported by a minority of French participation. French tanks I ver- manned by Americans for the first time, arid when one tank came to a halt tno two Yanks inside, without fear of any sort, came out and leaped-f rogged into our infantry. It was the most re-i markable event I have even see, and such is the American fighting apirit-to no or a.e. You already know where we struck j and in he sector I was in we took a , large village before ten hours of fight- , ir.g had passed. The Huns stiffened, their reslstence near the village but our j great aeroplanes manned by Yanks com pleted the task of ridding Fritz and Hans from the town. Oot Priti's Number. "We've got Fritz's number," was the new cry as the infantry went over and I am sure that you will agree with all of us. The quality of the F'russian disci-1 pline is shot to bits. Officers and men alike were quick in giving themselves up and from the average jireen or doughboy you can learn that the Huns are plain cowards. The night of our attack the weather was very poor and while you at home were suffering from the intense heat our bos in the trenches were no pikers Adler-i-ka Again!

The German dead was appall;:.?, and our artillery fire was perfect. We kept up our advance at a rapid pace, finally stopping near some woods to get our breath.

There are two angles from which to iook at rhe war. We may decide that we EY Stock Contains 2 Left and 13 Right Hand Stoves Odd BEEKE E? TOO BSSHUS A Says wi can't help but look better and feel better after an Inside bath. To look one's best and feel one s best Is to enjoy an inside bath each morn ing to flush from the system the pre vious day's waste, sour fermentations and poisonous toxins before it is ab sorbed into the blood. Just as coal, when it burns, leaves behind a certain amount of incombustible material in the form of ashes, so the food and drink taken each day leaves in the ali mentary organs a certain nmoant of in digestible material, which if not elim inated, forms toxins and poisons which are theu sucked into the 'blood through the very ducts which are intended to suck in iily nourthjnnt to sustain th body. If you want to see the glow m healthy bloom in your cheeks, to se-; your skin get clearer and clearer, you are told to drink every morning upon arising, a glass of hot water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate in it. which is a harmless means of wash ing the waste material and toxins from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels, thus cleansir.g, sweetening and pufffy ing the entire alimentary tract, and" be fore putting more food into the stom ach. Men and women with sallow skins, liver spots, pimples or rllld complex ion, also those who wake up with a coated tongue, bad taste, nasty breath, others who are bothered with headaches, bilious spells, acid stomach or constipa tion should begin this phosphate hot water drinking and are assured of very pronounced results in one or two weeks. A quarter pound of limestone phos phate costs very little at the drug store but is sufficient to demonstrate that Just ss soap and hot water cleanses, purifies and freshens the skin on the outside, so hot water and limestone phosphate act on the Inside organs. We must always consider that internal sani tation is vastly more important than outside cleanliness, because the skin pores do not absorb impurities into the blood, while the bowel pores do.
