IS UT HADE SY FRANK DELIUIS For some time past there have been persistent rumors afloat that William E. Fearrand, son of Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Fearrand, had been severely wounded in France. These have been finally substantiated by the state ment of Frank Do:mus, who has just returned from France, and who states that the young man is still lying in a Kase Hospital in France with both hands cut off and one leg badly in jured. This distressing news was imnart- ed to the family last night by Mr. ueimus, and has naturally caused them great sorrow, as they had re ceived reports from the War Depart ment that nothing was known of his injuries, and they had hoped against hope that the reports would prove unfounded. No letters have been re ceived from him during the past eight' months. His friends who wish to write to him may address him at Base Hospital 115, Ward 5, Room 7 A. E. F France.
