Dawson Writes From
Bramsholt, Feby. 4, 1918.
Dear John:
I suppose that I have developed
into a mighty poor correspondent the
last few months, but its a natural re
sult of the life I
One day in
the army is so much like its predeces
sors and successors that if I didn't
have a calendar I might lose myself.
I have stuck it here all winter and
for that I thank my lucky stars. It
has not as yet been nearly so severe
as last winter but it doesn't take much
weather to make the trenches like a
swamp, and until Spring comes I am
glad that I can stay on this side of
the channel. I expect tho that as
soon as the weather lets up there will
be big doings and most of us who
have been here this winter will be
sent back to stop the rush which is
apparently ldoked for in the Spring1.
The. Germans may make one great
final stab in the endeavor to settle
either the French rthe English be
fore the American Army can make
its presence felt to any extent. It will
be our job to prevent any such effort
being a success and tho things in gen
eral in the war have not been any too
encouraging since last summer I
think the Spring will see events com
ing our way a little better.
There are lots of American troops
in England. I saw a few when I was
on leave in London but of course none
that I knew. They are not stationed
any where close to us, so that I get
little opportunity for making in
My brother blew in here from
France last week and with his fam
ily is now I hope half way across the
Atlantic and bound for home. I wish
ed mightily that I could go with him
but I expect I am here for duration
and then some.
I had a letter from Sam Scott on
behalf of the K. of P. some few days
ago. It was signed on the back by
a good many members and it made
me fairly homesick to read so many
familiar names. I have hopes that
someday I may have the opportunity
to talk over the past couple of years
with you, though to tell the truth

Since the bus'inn'.-.ff of the war the
censorship has always prevented ex
act information from reaching the
States, and as you say I believe it has
done much harm. The newspapers

the other side have much of a notion
what they are up against. If it takes
them as long to find out as it did this
country they are due to be in the
dark a long time yet. The next few
months will no doubt show whether
it pays to stimulate a false optimism
or at least an optimism that is based
on only part of the truth. Perhaps

I could write I might be able to write
you an interesting letter, but as it
is the less said on any but bare gen
eralities the better. It may be that
I am too much American properly to

I'd make a poor Englishman I'm
The grub question is beginning to
obtrude itself, unpleasantly. We are
assured the supply is plentiful but no
one seems to know just where it is
or how to get it. Certainly all pro
vision stores are advertised by a line
outside, varying in length from a few
yards to half a mile. That of course
doesnt affect us in the army. Some
body has to rustle our rations for us
and will continue to do so for dura
tion. That is one comfort anyway.*
It beats me, and I guess nearly every
one, how Fritz ca manage to feed,
cut off as he is from any outside aid.
W ewill probably learn all that after
the war is over.
Your last letter was addressed to
Lieut. L. D. a title which I haven't
j^'ot and certainly don't covet. Two
years in the army has made me so
little a soldier that a soft fatigue job
is the height of anyone's ambition. I
am putting my plain unadulterated
address below and I'll be glad if
you'll stick that on your paper. I
like to keep in touch after a fashion
with Williston. I intend to go back
us soon as discharged unless that dis
charge is closely connected with a
chunk of hardware. And if I go to
France anything addressed thusly
will reach me almost as quickly as if
sent direct. My regard to all the boys
and if you known any one I know who
is on this side, send me their address.
The Farmers Elevator Company, at
its last meeting of directors, voted
to keep a supply of feed oats and
corn on hand at the elevator to sup
ply the need of its patrons and stock
holders. In order to fully co-operate
with the farmers, the manager will
appreciate it if the farmers will no
tify him how much feed they will
want and call up (Phone No. 272)
and let him know when they want it
and every possible precaution will be
used to avoid making the farmer an
extra trip to town. This feed will be
sold at practically cost to the farm
er patrons. 39-tf.

Pointers on Chevrolet
We could tell you a bookful about
Chevrolet performance —its wonder
ful endurance run records its going
qualities in sand and mud up to the
hub, and all that. There's enough of
this evidence in our files to convince
anyone who insists on performance
as the first requirement of a car.
But the average man is interested
in something far more important than
endurance records— and that one
thing is UPKEEP.
The amount of the upkeep expense
is the final test of the worth of a car.
CHEVROLET cars have every good
feature that justifies the maker's
pride—but if there is one thing upon
which we particularly pride ourselves,
