Those letters prove that the boys in France are well taken care of and even though they cannot write them selves some kind person is willing to do it for them: American Red Cross, June 13, '18. My dear Mrs. French: I was talking to your boy yester day and promised him to send off the enclosed money to you. He does not need it because he is at present in one of the large hos pitals of this lovely French town. He has everything he needs and is get ting along fine. He has not been wounded, but is sick with a light fever. He is getting so much better he will probably be moved soon to another hospital farther back of the lines. If he stays here I will write you again. If you do not hear from me he will have been sent to the south. I go into the sunny ward where he and another American boy have their beds at least once every day. Usual ly I go more often because the hos pital is near where I live. So I can get anything for them and see that they have every care. Sincerely yours, Mande Cleveland. For the Home Communication Ser vice of the American Red Cross, 4 Place De La Concord, Paris. My Dear Mrs. French: We are forwarding you a letter written by one of the Red Cross hos pital visitors in France with news of your son. As you see by her mes sage he is not seriously ill and there is no occasion for you to worry. The war department does not send out notices to the family where the ill ness is of such slight nature so you will not be surprised that you have not been informed before. Knowing what excellent care is given to our men in the hospitals abroad, I can assure you that everything is done to make him comfortable and happy during his illness. We are returning in the letter a check on the Guarantee Trust Co. of New York No. 1852. Hoping that you will call on us at any time, we can be of service, be lieve me Very sincerely, Wm. R. Castle. The American Red Cross Bureau of Communication, Washington, D. C. June 23, 1918. Dear Sister and Brother: Just a few lines to let you know I am about well now. Have been in a French hospital sixteen days. I was down to the American Red Cross and had a good time. This is a pret ty place over here only where the shells have trimmed the trees it looks bad. Do you get any letters from me? I hear from you right along but you say you do not hear from me. Well, hoping this letter finds you all well I will close with love to you all. Your brother, Cinton.

F. reunion Wednesday evening which was given in honor of Mr. J. C. Field and other members of twenty-five years standing. It was an enjoyable affair and a very special occasion as Mr. Field is leav ing for France, where he has been called on Y. M. C. A. duty. An African lion which escaped from the wreck of a circus train east of here, some time ago, has taken up his abode on Sand Creek and is making things interesting for farm ers in that vicinity, having killed sev eral young calves. Numerous reliable parties have seen the animal at dif ferent times and in different places. It would be well to organize a hunt ing party and kill or capture his lionship. Monday night after retiring, John Hill heard a noise outside, and think ing it might be the notorious Sand Creek lion, got up to investigate. In the dark he stumbled over a dry goods box, bumping his sore shin and tearing a gash in his side about three inches long on a nail, and bruising himself up quite painfully. This is Mr. Hill's second accident lately and he begins to think he would be safer to enlist in the army. The Happy Hollow picnic at the Barnfather farm Sunday was a hap py event, most of the members of the society and several visitors being present. After dinner visiting and knitting were in order and all pres ent had a delightful time. Mrs. Barn father is an ideal hostess as all can testify who have been fortunate enough to partake of her hospitality.

F. meeting in Williston Wednesday night of last week. Pearl Clark got thrown from a horse Wednesday morning of last week and fractured one bone in her foot.

Shorts. Arthur J. Cunningham and Mr. Taylor came out Monday afternoon and adjusted the damge of R. Baln kenships barn which was damaged in the storm Saturday morning a week ago. They had some trouble with their car and left it and motored back to Williston on a lumber wagon where Mr. Cunningham got the nec essary repairs and he and Mrs. Cun ningham came back in the evening in their Ford and took the car back. The lion which was reported as be ing seen here and Williston Satur day afternoon has been causing quite a bit of excitement among the neigh borhood and we are all looking for Mr. Lion every time we step out. Roy Ashwill who has been sleeping outside all summer has moved his bed inside where we think it will stay until all- doubts of the lion running at large has disappeared* Roy said he did it because the women were afraid for him to sleep out there, but he says in the house is a mighty good place to sleep when there is a lion running at large. And Wit Ramey has moved his bed over and. was sleeping in the granary at H. C. Blankenships while his mother and brother were away but since he heard about the lion he now goes up to Wagenman's and sleeps with George and Millard and he insists on sleep ing in the middle for protection. MOISTURE AND SOIL FERTILITY When there is enough dampness in hay or anything it will spoil. In the soil a process similiar to the spoiling of the hay goes on when there is moisture in the soil, and when this goes on plant food is being made available so the crop can use it. When the soil is dry the making of plant food available is slowed up, if not stopped.—Extension Div. N. D. Agri. College. That the Red Cross canteen service is becoming thoroughly efficient at home as well as abroad is being evi denced by the work done in many of the towns in receiving troop trains. An example of the way in which the troops enroute to the training camps are being entertained occured at Man kato, Minn., during'the movement of the last draft. In addition to 122 of Mankato's own men,256 men from neighboring counties were given a dinner which will long remain a pleasant memory to the men who left for Camp Grant. The entire town turned ouc in honor of the departing men, and the streets along the line of march were so thronged with people that the home guard had difficulty in keeping a space large enough to allow the men to pass. The 6th Battalion band met each troop as it arrived and escorted it to the place where dinner was serv ed. In order to accommodate the large number of men in the time al lotted, dinner was served at both the Masonic Temple and the Methodist church. At the conclusion of the din ner, each man was given an attrac tively boxed lunch to tide him over until he should arrived at the camp. As the trains left the station, the men were sent on their way with ringing cheers and good wishes mingled with the strains of the "Star Spangled Banner." Attention has been called to the fact that much mail from America to Red Cross workers in France bears a five cent stamp. Members of families of Red Cross workers abroad and friends in this country should re member that mail for them, when addressed in care of the American Red Cross, is entitled to pass as American Expeditionary Force mail, which requires only three cents in postage. FARM SERVICE DIVISION FACTS 1. Organized in Febru ary, 1918, as a Division of the U. S. Employment Ser vice, Department of La bor, to work our problems of mobilization and dis tribution of farm labor. 2. Works through ma chinery in each state of the U. S. Employment Ser vice, U. S. Public Service Reserve and U. S. Boys' Working Reserve. Has senior Examiner in each state under State Direc tor of the U. S. Public Service Reserve devoting entire time to farm labor matters. 3. Co-operation with State Agricultural Agen cies, Fourth Class Post masters, State Councils of National Defense and many unofficial organiza tions for relieving farm labor shortage. 4. Has demonstrated its practical efficiency this season by making the har vest of the second largest wheat crop ever produced in this country "Safe for Democracy." O A N S A E Cattle men of New Bfarico have agreed to brand one heifer in each herd for the Red Cross. Next win ter, the cows bearing the A. R. C. brand will be sold at the National Western livestock show to be held at Denver, Colo., and the amounts re ceived will be given to the Red Cross. Sheep owners of Ingomar, Mont., have given fleeces to the Red Cross amounting to $1,400. The wool will be sent to a Boston woolen mill where it will be made into yarn. The finish ed yarn will be returned to Ingomar to be used by the Red Cross branch there in its knitting. The annual Early Settlers' picnic at New Rockford, N. D., was held this year in honor of the Red Cross, and resulted in raising the sum of $1,266.75. The chief event, as in former years, was the barbecue of a steer and sheep. JUNIORS ARE ASKED TO HELP ELDERS IN SUMMER WORK Special Assigaments For Younger Red Cross Workers Will Be Announced Later At the Junior Membership confer ence held in Washington, D. C., the last week in June, many plans were outlined. We all realize the neces sity of making these plans as definite as possible and getting them into the hands of the Chapter School commit tee at an early date. Many commit teemen have already written the Northern Division asking for an out line of next year's work, and we ap preciate this forethought and hope to comply with their request. The National Junior Membership department now has a committee on girls' work and on boys' work. The government has given the Junior Red Cross orders of considerable size. These consist of manual training work along reconstruction lines. Until more definite instructions are received, let us remind the Chapter School committees to make nothing which is not given in the Senior allot ment which comes to the county Chapter. If the Chapter cannot give the Juniors sufficient work, or if the allotment is not suitable, interest the chairman in such activities as are sug gested in Miss Justine Cook's "Vaca tion Activities," recently sent out to all chairmen of School committees. Encourage the children to arrange ex hibits of their completed work in sewing, knitting, wool-work, canning, cooking, corn growing, etc. The sum mer is a good season for their plays, pageants and carnivals in order to earn money for financing their work next year. The program for next year will need any amount that can The Unseen Army PEERING The Hun can see this army. But he fears even more the bigger army that is making possible the presence of millions of our boys in the trenches. It takes 6 to 8 men to back up one soldier on the firing line. It is this Unseen Army that will make possible the steady, resistless fighting force that will roll back the Hun hordes. Realize this, men!

Many will be interested in a few figures showing the accomplishments of the Juniors, for the year ending July 1, in the Northern Division. This Division stands second in the number of schools organised. We now have 11,000 Junior Auxiliaries, while the Central Division leads with 12,000. When school opens in the fall the Northern Division is expected to lead off with 100 per cent. The children in these organized schools have not been idle. The reports, even though incomplete, show that the following articles have been made by the Juniors of our Division: Refugee garments, 50,000 hospital supplies, 70,000 surgical dressings, 70,000 knitted articles, 13,028 mis cellaneous articles, 95,000. Total 298,578. CONSERVE MOISTURE Weeds use up moisture. When they grow in a crop they compete with the crop for the moisture and weeds usually keep on growing after the crop is cut, thus using moisture that should be saved up for next year's crop.—Extension Div. N. D. Agri. College. URIC ACID IN MEAT CLOGS THE KIDNEYS Vtektaflaaof Salts if jovrBaek hurts or Bladder bothen you—Drink •ore water. If yon must have your meat every day, eat it, but flush your kidneys with salts occasionally, says a noted authority who tells us that meat forms uric acid which almost paralyzes the kidneys in their ef* forts to expel it from the blood. Thejr beoome sluggish and weaken, then yra suffer with a dull misery in the kidney region, sharp pains in the hack or siclc headache, dizziness, your stomach sours, tongue is eoated and when the weather is bad you have rheumatic twinges. The urine gets cloudy, full of sediment, the channels often get sore and irritated, obliging you to seek relief two or three time during the night. To neutralise these irritating acids, to eleanse the kidneys and flush off the body's urinous waste get four ouaees of Jed Salts from any pharmacy heree take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast for a few days and your kidiyys will then act fine. Thia famous salts is made from the acid of napes and lesson juice, oombined with lithia, and has been used for generations to flush and stimulate sluggish kidneys^ also to neutralise the acids in urine, so it bo longer irritate* thus ending bladder weakness. Jad Salts is inexpensive eannot ia jure, and makes a delightful lithia-water drink. through his trench periscope, across the shell-scarred waste of No Man's Land, the German soldier catches an oc casional glimpse of the new enemy that he has already learned to dread. Deep forebodings of evil begin to take form in his mind. America's millions of boys in Khaki are flow ing in a steady stream to the fields of France. Soon more ships will be carrying more fighters and more food that they will need to "carry on" to Berlin. STICE-HANSON MOTOR CO. •M i.
