Lieutenant Ernest Lindley, who
turned to Moscow^after ân absence of
eight months, has some interesting
statements to mahe relative to liis
experience- while in the service.
"Aftqjvche armistice was signed, all
the attractions of life in the army
seamed somehow to disappear," stated
z Mr. Lindley, "and I was glad to apply
for my discharge on the ground that
I wish to get back to college and com- j
plete my course. I should have been
more than glad to stay in the service
H there had been any prospect of.
fighang ahead."
Lieutenant Lindley went from Mos
tcv/ Lc.t May to the Presidio at San
Francisco to enter the R. O. T. C.
war; sent to the machine gun
school at Camp Hancock, Georgia,
where he was commissioned in Sep
tember. He was assigned to a re
placement division, a temporary or-j
ganization whose function was to
train men to replace casualties over
armistice was signed
there were a great number of extra
officers no longer needed for replace
ment training, and Lieutenant Lindley
aeeured his discharge without diffi
culty on December 18.
Lieutenant Lindley was profoundly
impresse 1 wi'h the contrast between
the south and the west, and he says
that if any man wants to become an
unqualified booster for this section of
the country he has only to be station
ed for a while in the region of Au
gusta and Atlanta. ,
"It is impossible for me to resist
this chance to take at least a little
crack at the south, stated Lieutenant
Lindley. "The merchants certainly
held up the officers and men for ev
ery article purchased. Clothing and
military supplies were sold at outrag
eous prices
"The whole attitude of the wt*
toward the troops may be indicated
by this little incident with reference
to our troop tram when we left the
Presidio. Everywhere in the west a"d
southwest the Red Cross met Jhe train
whenever it pulled into a station and
the boys were given free eats of all
kinds and treated to everything that
could be furnished. I noticed the dif
ference first when we got to Nash
villa. The town was closed and no
body met us there at all. When we
got to Augusta, the Red Cross was
there all right with hot coffee and
sandwiches which they passed around
among the follows—accompanied how
ever, by a bill for fifty cents for each
service .After the splendid generosity
of the west and the cordial way we
were treated everywhere we could I
y help noticing how different was J

It Will Please the Doctor if
You Have His Prescription
Filled Here
It is essential that your prescriptions have every bit of the
potency that the physician relies upon or else the results will
be disappointing. To insure this, drugs must be fresh, pure
and active, and must be properly compounded.
Our trade is very large, which insures rapid selling—hence
freshness. We have every drug ever called for—therefore sub
stitution is never found necessary.
All prescriptions are compounded by registered pharmacist's,
and our prices are based on a fair and accurate cost account
ing system. These are some of the reasons why physicians
always pleased when we fill their prescriptions.

the reporter gleaned that, so far as

S. T. Chambers, better known over
the upper Palouse as "Uncle Tom,"
passed away at the home of his son,
Joe Chambers, on Chambers Flat, De
cember 30th, of old age.
Samuel Thomas Chambers was born
in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 20, 1832
and there grew to manhood. At the
outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted
in an Indiana regiment and served
the full four ÿears, being with Grant
at the seige of Vicksburg and later
in the army of'the Patomac.
On March 4, 1866, he was united in
marriage to Miss Johann at Bell and

crossed the plains by ox-team and
settled in Whitman county, Wash.,
where they lived until January, 1884,
when they came to the upper Palouse
river country, on the flat which still
bears his name. Since the death of
Mrs. Chambers in 1904, Mr. Chambers
has lived among his children, and for
more than a year had been practically
helpless. Though nothin»? unusual
I was noticed about his condition until
a few days before the end, when it
could be seen that he was growing
weaker. On Sunday he did not awake
but lay as one asleep all day, and at
9 o'clock on Monday morning, an
other of the few remaining "path
finders of the West" crossed that
great divide from which there is no
returning. The remains were taken
to the Freese cemetery Wednesday,
where, after a brief service at the
grave, they were laid to rest.
Deceased is survived by two
daughters, Mrs. Orpba Cochrane of
Chambers Flat, and Mrs. George Bay
of Meadow Creek, and three sons,
Eudoris of Reubens, Idaho; Ulysses,
of British Columbia, and Joe, who

Well dear people, I'll be home now be

father, since two months ago things
have been on the go so much and so
fast that we didn't possibly have
chance to write. I hate it because I
know you worry lots, but it couldn't
be helped. Well dear folks I have
been thru Belgium, now its Luxem
berg. Remember the goose girl ?
That is about this same country, and
say it is a remarkable place for
scenery. I believe the prettiest
country I've been in. As we marched
thru Belgium they sure appreciated
the Americans, give their last mouth
ful, for they really don't have much
to give away. So you got a. letter
from Smythe; he was a good fellow.
Well folks, I'm telling you right, this
outfit has been thru lots of hardships.
Well the time will drag now till time
to come home; but the war is over
so things won't be so bad.

A. E. F, France,
It was the 2nd Engineers in the
2nd division, who with the 5th and
6th marines and the 9th and 23rd
infantry, stopped the Germans at
Chateau Thierry an their drive to
Paris. The French army was broken
in the center and they were in full -
flight, throwing away their arms and
equipment. _ The Americans were
rushed up in trucks and passing the
fleeing French, they were told that
they would all be killed; that they
could not stop the Germans and that
Paris was lost. But they went in all
the same and threw out a thin skir
mish line without any artillery pro
tection—they were Americans—and
the Germans were stopped. (Inci
dentally, a good percentage of the
ond engineers were of the old second
Idaho Infantry.) Right then and
there the war was won. On the 18th
of July, the famous first American
army, which at the time consisted of
the 1st,. 2nd, 3d, 4th, 26th, 32d and
42d divisions started their drive
the .Chateau Thierry, which was the
beginning of the ceaseless victories
of the allies which culminated in the
armistice on November 11. In all
those four months of victory, there
was not a single allied reverse.
