This interesting letter wps re
ceived by Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Shel
•man of Springfield, Idaho from their
son Lane, who is with the twenty
third Inf. Co. M. on the battle front
"over there:"
Dear folks at home:
Have received several letter, the
last Aug 13 and 15. I came out of
the lines or rather Germany last
night. ■ The outfit had fine luck this
time, as the casualties were so small
that one could not miss the few that
were wounded and killed. We were
three days in it this time. We
started over at daylight, after our
artillery hurl blown things up for five
hours and when we went over ,our
barrage was so fierce that no living
thing could stay out from under
ground. There was very little re
sistance and they gave up by the hun
dreds, with horses, wagons and
trains. The railroad trains came
into town after it was captured, not
knowing that, and the crews were
taken prisoners along with the sup
p.ies and munitions, also Where we
advanced we captured munition
dumps and grub galore before they
could set fire to it.
The French civilians have been
cut off in this town for four years.
When our boys went into the town
they ran out with tears of joy and
were all crying "America", and they
even tried to hug and kiss the boys
in their joy. There were some Ger
man civilians also, which iwere in
terned. I saiw one old French lady
run out and shake her fist in a pris
pners face, and Said. "Now you are
going to Paris. It was nothing to
see a "doughboy" riding a horse and
driving any where from fifty to 300
prisoners back to head quarters.
I have not had a chance to mail
a letter for over fifteen days, and
have forgotten what was in the let
ters I received before the first of
August. I got the pictures yop sent
Susie, adn am still keeping the ones
you sent me last winter. I have
never been where I could get my pic
ture taken and get them finished be
fore I left ,as we only stay a week in
a place qnd then we are not in town.
Besides almost four months and no
pay, and not much chance to get
paid now by the looks of things, and
we never get where we could spend
a nickle if we had it. The Y. M. C.
A. don't hardly catch up with us and
when it does it donesn't have any
thing. Of course, where troops are
stationed all the time they do some
thing for them, but we don't do any
thing, but fight and hike from one
place to another.
When we go in something starts,
or rather ■»« start and go as far as
the artillery can reach to give us a
barrage. We are supposed to be the
best division the U. S. has, and of
course we are trying to live up to
our rep. All the Yanks are just the
same when it comes to fighting, noth
ing can stop them but orders, and
sometimes they don't stop them.
Well, dinner is over and I will try
and write a few more lines. The
boys from Qamp Lewis were in here
some where, but I never saw any of
Well, maybe I can finish this now,
just got back from a swim, and put
on clean cloths, the first in three
weeks. Never mind pending me
cigars, but just send me a big long
letter with all the news in it and I
will enjoy it as much as anything.
I got a box of Boche cigars and a box
of cigarettes when We were over last.
All the boys are smoking Boche
We captured a band and three dug
outs with pianos in them. The
boys at Ft. Riley are lucky and the
ones in the non-combatant engineers.
They have a dry place to sleep and
three hoi meals a day .while iwe are
lucky to get cold chow and have a
wet place to sleep in.. I have had
my clothes on for as high as three
weeks at a time and went twice with
out chow for four days, other than
iron rations, which is a can of Bill
and a little hard tack. Once in July
when we started the big offensive!
we rode all night on a truck and
hiked all day and all night in the
rain and then went over and stayed
two days battling. Those were two
days too, believe me and nothing
to eat all the time. Of course t^at
don't happen every time.
Well dad, you can read the papers
and follow me. Oh yes, keep this
letter as a souvneer as it is on Boche
paper and written with a Boche pen

Relief work by the American Red
Cross in Beligum necessitated an ex
penditure of $1,432,374 for the ten
months ending June 30. This amount
went to provide comforts and medi
cal assistance for Beligan soldiers,
90,000 residents of that part of the
little country outside the German
lines and the 600,000 Belgian refu
gees scattered thrh France, England,
Holland and Switzerland.
The sum of $1 ,j 47,325 has been
appropriated to continue this work
during the last six months of this
year. Thus by the end of the year

among the Belgians the sum of $3,

facts in the current section of the
war council's report relative to the
use being made of the Red Cross

canteens, which provide daily re

shelters 400 children and the main

Co-operation between the Red
Cross and the Beligan government
has been so effective that this aid has
been distributed largely thru the
medium of Belgian agencies. A do
notion of one million francs to the

francs to insure the completion of a
large hospital were among the first
expenditurees of the Red Cross ih
The organization has established

is distributed among the country's

and bombs, hospitals in that territory
have been destroyed from time to
