And they can use the old school books until the con tractors succeed in filling all orders unfilled. The above does not mean that people who are financially unable to secure the books, but that they are unable because agents .haven't been able to secure them.

As ft matter of fact tho soldier strikes places sometimes that are not very .pleasant, but wo have be come almost accustomed to all the hardships of a soldier's life. I have beeu in the service about ono year and three months. Wo have been in active service since February 4, and some people may tell you that tho Filipinos can not shoot, but I want to tell you that they are mistaken, for they have tried their marksmanship on mo. However, I am still hero to try my marksmanship at every Filipino I can siht. Our regiment has been doing out post duty on tho Iloilo River every since we have been cn the island. I go on duty every four days, and from our outpost we can see their camp fires, and can see them walk ing around in the day time. The Filipinos fight somewhat liko the Indians do in the States, and they are constantly firing on. our outposts. They will steal their way through tho high grass and sugar cane until they reach the op posite side of the river from us, and then fire a shot or two at our block houses before disappearing as they came. I believe that one of them would crawl all day to get a shot at an "Americano," for that is what they call us. Occasionally one of them will muster up enough courage to ap p roach within five or six hundred yards of our outposts and climb a cocoanut tree to do sharpshooting, We generally locate him about the second shot, and then we have him coming down from his perch faster than any squirrel you ever saw. When we turn our old Springfields loose it only requires a moment for him to decide that he needs cover I hardly think we will be hero much longer, probably not moro than CO days. I will close, hoping to receive a long letter from you at an early day. Your friend, D.'F. Quiliex- Si'ccliil ( n i N'oiii!i'Ucn. Farmers are busily engaged , in gathering fodder this week. N. T.
