In telling of her work Miss Bullock
-ii:ving Vieen assigned to the Tours
eisual canteen, I reported there on
April the fourteenth for duty.
The canteen consisted of four
quxkly constructed barracks, the
worX of the local 'boys, about 30 by
51 f.-pt and was situated In the lovely
Prr'tfture garden of Tours. Three
b'uMings were for sleeping quarters
one for the canteen proper. The
cinlrn was very much like one of
out beautifully shaded parks covering
alout ten acres and enclosed by a wall
tlve feet high. In the center a
natural spring and large pond added
much to its beauty and in one end was
the mayor's .home and city halL Under
the trees was the favorite place for
the boys to take their naps or read
wirtie waiting for their trains.
Canteen for Casuals.
As the canteen was for casuals
only a guard was always placed at
the gate. They were furnished by the
local marines and to them we owe
many thanks for their help so willing
!y given in every, way, four of these
bovs were always with us on K. P.
The three barracks used for sleeping
quarters accomodated about forty
boys each, one being used for casual
nurses. Between the -boys barracks
wer shower baths with hot and cold
water, plenty of soap and towels,
Fresh underclothes could be had by
turning in their soiled ones. -Homelike
In the canteen proper and rest room
which were all in one, every effort was
made to make it as home like as pos
sible. Red and white checked curtains
hung to the windows and the small ta
bles placed down each side of the
canteen were covered with the red end
white checked oil cloth. In the cen
ter and one end of the room stood
table with chewing gum, candy, Cig
artttes and matches and at the other
end a piano for dancing. A small part
at the back of the room was used for
the rest by a counter In front of
which the boys were served in line
carrying their plates to the tallies. In
one corner a writing desk and mail
box were kept busy. Quantities c
flowers which are especially beautiful
in France, were kept on each tabla.
Pajamas, handkerchiefs, sweaters,
magazines and comfort bags contain
ing soap, tooth brush and paste, small
comb, wash rag. shaving brush, cig
arettes and matches were distributed
to every one.
Mothers' Day and the Fourth of July
were observed. On Mothers' Day ice
cream was served in the garden Irom
a flower covered booth to each boy
who dropped a letter to "mother In a
r.ear by basket provided for that pur
pose. Needless to say the basket was
filled. On the fourth the canteen was
decorated with a number of flags and
special cherry pie with tiny American
flags stuck in them were served with
the meals. In the evening fireworks
were distributed among the boys and
displayed in the garden, and a special
tar.d furnished music for dancing. To
the prefect on this day was sent a
cherry pit gaily decorted with the
small flags, he showing his apprecia
tion himself and family joining us for
tne fireworks. On these special occa
sions the local boys were always in
vited, and th Invitation was resnrmd.

The spirit of our canteen was often

, RED CROSS CANTEEN
TELLS OF WORK ABROAD
The workers themselves were al
ways treated ; with the greatest con
sideration by the Red Cross, and
should ever feel it was the greatest
privilege having been a part of this
wonderful organization. " .
"While over I had the pleasure of
visiting Brussels, Antwerp, Bruge, Os
tend and most of the devastated re
gion, including Chateau-Thierry.
Rheims, Soissons and other smaller
places. "While at 'Tours I visited many
of the neighboring chateaus."
Miss Bullock Is a young woman of
unusual ability, and her experience in
the business world prior to volun
teering for service overseas better
equipped her to assume the various
responsibilities of the canteen serv
ice. She has a partieularly happy
disposition, the ability to bridge all
difficulties, and withal to . keep such
a cherry smile for the boys in the
service, one can readily understand
why she was so popular with all the
men who passed through Tours. Miss
Bullock was untiring , in her efforts
to provide for their pleasure and com
fort, working long hours when there
was need, her charming personality
fairly radiating happiness.

If You Have Pure Blood
Tour blood is made up of the food
you eat, and the water your drink,
and the air you breathe. If your food,
water and air are bad, your blood
will become impure. But, even when
the best and most nourishing food
is eaten, the purest of jwater is drunk,
your blood may be made impure fj-om
other causes. ,
For many years Plough's .Prescrip
tion C-2223, has been used with great
success as a blood purifier. Before
the treatment, ready prepared, was
offered to the public, it was used by
a prominent physician to relieve those
conditions caused by impure blood. It
was his prescription for blood and
This concentrated liquid treatment
contains certain medicinal ingredients
which are known and used by the
medical profession, and authorities
authorities agree that these are some
the few drugs which are of value
in the treatment of rheumatic condi
tions, skin diseases and troubles caused
by an impure state of the blood.
If you are half sick, tired all the
time, have reason to believe that your
blood is impure, "go to your nearest
druggist, get a $1.50 bottle of Plough's
Prescription C-2223 and a 25c pack
age of 2223 Liver Pills; or the 2223
Laboratory, Memphis, Tenn., will send
both, all charges paid, on receipt of
$1.75. Your money back if you are not
