I only wish it was true, and. it may, of course, be so borne time, but it hasn't come along just yet. I am yet a long way from becoming a First Lieuteant. I have been picked out of my company for a farrier in the Sixteenth Veterin arian Hospital Unit. That ranks as a First Sergeant 1 am in first class health and feeling just fine .... Hvae been receiving THE NEWS very regularly. I would hate to miss a single copy of it. I am especially interested in your 'In The Service' department, as it gives the news of te boys from home, and what they are doing.... We have been issued cur overseas equipment and are ex pecting to leave here for somewhere n France some time in the early part of September. .. .Uncle Sam is certainly very good to us here, and there is not a thing to complain of. The boys all sepm to be very well sat isfied. With regards, I am, "Very Truly Yours, "NATHAN A. BAYLESS, "16th Veterinry Hospital Unit, Vet erinary Training School, Camp Lee, Virginia." Away up in Jack London's coun try, the Puget Sound district, the Bourbon county boys who left here some time ago, the "misfits," as they are pleased to call themselves, are active in Uncle Sam's service. The following letter is from one of them, Mr. William E. Mitchell, under date cf August 25: 7- - . "Joyce, Washington. "THE NEWS: At last the prom ised letter that I was going to let jou have. Sorry to say I haven't gathered as yet all the material for that Jack London story you wanted ne to write 1 have just gotten ttled down, and found out 'where 1 am at' Please do not make an article out of this, as it is protected by all kinds of copyrights .... We had a most wonderful trip coming West, and the entire crowd seemed to en joy it very much. Of course, as you know, good friends cannot stay to gether always, and our crowd was soon broken up. I stayed in Van couver fifteen days, and then re ceived orders to leave for the talL timber, and accordingly made my deU parture on Sunday last Jak Saloshin left on Saturday ahead"of me. We got word that he was leav- fully. We have moments for bath ing and swimming and the people are lovely to us. Tell brother the first place I visited was the home of Charles Dickens. He used to laugh at me so much about the books. It was just as I had imagined it Please tell every one to write to me and tell me all the home news. "Love to all, write soon. "SISTER. "My address is "MARY K. STONE, A. N. C. "U. S. Army Base Hospital No. 40, American Expeditionary Forces, England." The following letter has been received- by Mr. and Mrs. Harry O.

"Dear Uncle Harry and Aunt Annie: "We are entraining to-day, but the train that takes my outfit has been delayed a few hours. "I was out to see them off this morning and it was about the saddest sight I ever saw. The bands were playing and the boys all in high spirits, but the women were crying and wanting to get up to the train it kept the guards busy. "I had a very busy day yesterday. I had charge of the transportation and it kept my field train busy all day and the last load went aboard after midinight "I am supply officer for one of the trains to New York. I received the cigarettes and a thousand thanks. I expect to smoke them on the way from New York to Liverpool. Our regiment is loaded and we go next. "Give my regards to all. "JASON." THE COUNTRY STILL THEM GREEN. GROWS re- Ing, so the rest of us hung around to give him a last farewell. It sure was an ideal night for such a thing to happen. A real dark night and a light rain drizzling down. Made us feel kind of creepy. You could see the boys running arougd in ths camp making preparations jbr thelmfvi.
