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. C
Wright since he left Camp Pike.
It is getting late &d w eare going
to town tonight, so I guess I had bet
ter ring off. My address is 4th Cas
ual Co., Camp Raritan, Metchusen,

CAMP PIKE, ARK. -
Just a few words to our dear old
friend boys in Putnam county. I am'
in Camp Pike having a good time.
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. "
