F., Germany May 18, 1919 W. H. Matheny, Clerk Dear Sir: ? Received the papers this a. m. and am returning them. Wish pou to publish it in the county paper as a mistake; I was only fool ing Dad, but I guess my future is a sad one now in Highland, for me. I came over here to fight for Amer ica, and not to marry French girls. If the American girls are not good enough for U. S. boys, we should stay over here in "no man's land" with these wild creatures. I thank you for<your kindness, and trust that you will help me out, as I expect to be at home by July 10th to 20th. I desire that the people of my home county should know that I did not get married "over here." Very truly, ? Dunbar Alexander Co. A 318 Engineers It will be remembered that Dunbar stepped into the serviee o* hi? coun try before his name was called, there fore he has a right to fool "Dad" a little, now and then. $2.35 will pay for the Highland Recorder and . the Thrice- A- Week World for a whole year.

As the carriage ran back her foot slipped from the piece of timber on which she was standing and was caught by a revolving wheel in such ?a way that her foot was badly cut and torn about the' instep. Fortu nately Mr. Corbett saw the accident in time to stop the carriage before the- foot was crushed or torn off. 'The little victim was carried home where the family physician rendered needed surgical attention, and she has been doing as well as could be expected. o ? ; Birth Record The Valley Center neighborhood gave the county a new birth record last Saturday when Mrs. Cecil Bird gave birth to two boys and a girl, all normal and well-developed children One of the boys died, but the mother and remaining two are doing well.
