OLD FOLKS NQN EST ur la ouier words, in tne way, Well, sir, how often d owe ee and know of suchT -Ton will bear the ' younger ones say, "When pa or ma drape off." Yes, they remind me of A flock of turkey buzzards (can t you see them) on a dead tree waiting for the old horse te die, and In some cas es will peck out the eyes before he has closed .them for the last time. That old family horse that is next beet friend to man, bow all the little ones will cry and say, "Old Sorrel Is dead and we can never ride him to waiter again nor hold him in the front yard to pick off the grass 'boo, hoo." WelL sir, that is not mil; some are waiting for that little property. If it t is not already divided, an, my stars and little pumpkins, the old people that are persuaded to divide and live with the children (you have seen it near you.) There was' case near by where grandmother kept her home, and after the grandchildren got to be some smart size there did not seem to be enough room in the old family house, so the daughter-in-law says: VWe will build Grandma a nice little house." (One room out in the yard.) And, sir, that grandma, although she was about 80, simply struck, and said "No; this house was built by my hus band, who has gone on before me for us to have in our old days. If ' . any of you are not Rationed, you can pull your freight," or words to that effect Now,, there was th estuff of the right metal' That old mother In Israel knows some things and knew the limit bad come. On the other hand, you will see all .respect the old folks and the little ones can't do enough. It's Grandma, let me get your slippers, o fretch a drink of cool water, or light your pipe, here Is a match, and if it was way back "yander" she would say "No; get a live coal, dip it and leave some ashes on the top of that old clay, pipe, that's the system." And let me teU you there is "P-p" p such children, and for each kindness tbev show there will be a Jewel In their crown, bless their little hearts. Save, preserve and keep them from all harm, till tn later years they can look back on fiose days with pride, and be happy to think how kind they were to the ones who, if ever they want peace and quietude it Is in their old days. No, sir, it iB not the case every time and you all , know how a mother-inlaw Is spoken of and looked upon. T had the best one of all, for she by - some hook or crook heard we were go ing to run off and get hitched or splic- ed, call it what- you may, but she came to the escrue and said; "Now, children dont be silly and make bad matters worse, but if you must marry call m the minister." That minister I notic ed was there all the same, and you know the rest 1 O. W. FEEDING THEM UP Some Idea of the vast amount of other than substantial food consumed by our soldiers may 'be had from the fact that the T. M. C. A. has ordered 750 carloads of cookies, 93,750,000 sticks of ohewlnc gum, 112,500.000 bars of chocolate, 7,500,000 jars of jam and marmalade and 1,350,000,000 cigarettes. This is in addition to all the folderol the government furnish es the men, sod will last only until about Christmas CAMP RARITAN, N. J. ' Dear Herald friends, I will drop you a few lines to let you all know where we are now. . We left Camp Pike the 28th of July, arrived In New Jersey safely and It is a beautiful place. We are" right on the coast, and you bet it la getting some cold. I will tell you what we have to en tertain us soldiers. We have a dance every night a fine Y. M. C. A. and some fine shows. So you see we can have a good time. But I guess tha most of us had rather be at borne. . We came through Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York and landed in New Jersey, and will stay here for a while. The nex move we make will be to cross over. I guess, and you bet we will get the Kaiser. - ' , v . I wonder it all the Tennessee girls have got married. I guess they nave for I don't hear from any of them any more. Wonder what'bas become of G.

Nothing to do only drill eight hours a day, and that is just good exercise for us, boys. We sure do enjoy our selves. We all see lots of fun. Jesse Bttldinei Hatton Carr, Vecher Phy, Erastus McCalob, Horace Bartlett,' Booze Callahan, Robert Maddux, Phil Patton, Elwood Robertson myself and several other boys are all here ' from Putnam county and you can teU the world that we are making a rec ord in our company. We always win in every contest All you can -hear is "Hurrah for the Tennessee boys." Most of us have been, promoted to good position, which we are glad to hold, and all wish to cllmib to tne top of the ladder. We certainly do try to surrender our full service to -our country. We are expecting to -leave Camp Pike at any time for Camp Dix, N. J., and are anxious to get started, as it is awful hot here now. We are expecting to go to France this fall and are wanting to get over there with the rest of tie boys. ' Jesse E. ' Dlldine had a letter from on. of his cousins In" France and we are all glad to hear the good new he tells us, and it makes us crazy to get our finger in the pie. We are glad to have our friend. Jesse. Dildlne, with us, he is such lively boy in the army. We would no lost without him. He lived In Lin coln, Neb., at the time ne was called and was holding a pos'tlon with the C. B. & Q. railroad Now he is with Uncle Sam. and seems to be proud of his new home. I can certainly com pliment him as a real soldier. He came over 1,000 miles to get to be with us boys and we appreciate his company very much. He gets lots of ' mail from bis Tennessee friends and ' some nice packages of cake, but best of all he received a package of good old eweet apples from his best friend and we aU eat them. .- ' -' Robert Maddux's wife Just arrived here from Baxter. She Just made tJe kisser crack, and he seemed to be proud of her. You girls back home ' just be patient for us boys will return some day and of course we will all . want a Tennessee girl. , , All you boys who are called to tbe colors should not regret leaving your ; homes to come and help us tooys to clean up on those Huns, and all who 1 are not in the draft age ought to be ' , glad to volunteer. I wish I had Join ed long ago. It's a good , schooling to any boy. We are sure to win; we all feel sure of that Dont bo a slack er. Honor yourself by fighting for - your country. Us boys are proud' we are here and feel iit our duty to fight for freedom, and every Putnam coon- ty boy ought to feel the same way. . If you feel that you had rather stay ' at home, dont forget to work and. save for the boys who want to fight. ' It takes lots of spuds and beans for us Iboys, so don't forget to help us win this war,. Will close by thanking those Ten nessee girls and good mother and sister for all those good packages, they sent us. Jesse Dildine, Hatton Carr and myself all received a pack age at the same time and we set a . regular old country dinner. ? It made us feel like we were at home. Erastus McCaleb Is working at the depot now and we miss him. " . E. W. WALLER.
