If any of you want to wed a U, S marine who is a blonde, 33 years of age and who owns an estate valued at $15,00(L step forward please. Mayor Chandler is in receipt of a letter from Private R. K. Ridgeway, stationed at the U. h. Marine camp at Paris Island. S C. in which he beseeches the mayor to find him a wife. "I'm going to France soon," wrote Ridgeway, ''and I have no one to whom to leave my estate or my $10,000 worth of insurance. All my people are dead. If you can help me to find a good girl to leave my property and insurance to, please write me." Hurry up, girls! Satan and the Kaiser. The kaiser called the devil up On the phone one day; The girl at central "listened . Heard all they had to say. in' "Hollo,H she heard the kaiser say, "Is Old Man Satan home? Just tell him it is Kaiser Bill Who wants him on the phone." The devil said 'Tiello" to Bill, And Bill said, "How are you? I'm running a swell hell on earth, So tell me what to do." "What can I do?" the devil said. "My dear old Kaiser Bill. If there's a thing that I can do 1 Tif help you, I sure will." The kaiser said. "Now listen And I will try to tell The way that I am running My hne new modern hell. I've saved for this for many years, And I've started out to kill That it will be a model job, Just leave to Kaiser BilJ. "My army went through Belgium, Shot womenvand .children down; We tore up all the country And blew up every town. My Zepps dropped bombs on cities And killed both old and young, And those the Zeppelins didn't get Were taken out and hung. 4T started out for Paris With the aid of poisonous eras: The Belgians, darn them, stopped us, And would not let' us pass. Oh, you should see them fight! They sneak up on hospital ships And sink them all at sight. "Things were running quite to suit me Till a year or so ago, When a man named Woodrow Wilson Wrote me to go more slow., "He says to me, 'Dear William, We don't want to make you sore, So be sure to tell your U-boats rTo sink our ships no more. " 'We have told you for the last time. So, Bill, it's up to you. And if you do not stop it You'll have to fight us, too.' "I didn't listen to him, And he's coming after me With a million Yankee soldiers From their home across the sea. "Now that's why I called you. I want advice from you; You surely know the business Just what ought I to do?" ''My dear old Kaiser William, There's not much I can tell; The Yanks will make it hotter you Than I can here in hell, for "I've been a mean old devil . But not half as bad as you; And the minute that you get here, I'll resign my job to you. "Ill be ready for your coming, And 111 keep the fires all bright; And 111 have your room all ready When the Yanks begin to fight. "For the boys in drab will getyou; I have nothing more to tell.

It is as follows: Somewhere in France, May 12, 1918. Deare&t Mother: .Today is Mo thers' day. Gen. Pexshincrequest ed every soldier to write a letter to mother today. I he Y s have re minders posted, also the Y seer e tar ies that made the rounds of the trenches were going to see that the bovs there were supplied with paper today. All the fellows here in. our bunch have written. I thought wou.d get busy today and write you a real long letter and also several more letters, but I was not in much of a mood for writing this afternoon so did not get it done. I wrote a few lines to Mrs! Sprague at Green ville to hnd out where Frank was. 1 The Y got some new paper, a com bination kind so will try -to write a little letter all for yourself. But though small it carries lots of love and best wishes and hopes that next year at this time we will all be home again, but that no one knows. You know about as much and perhaps more, of how things are going, than I can tell, if I could." We have not been on the move lately. I think we are seiuea lor a wnue now; are working on trucks at present. For some reason we have not had anv mail for some time but I suppose if win get caught up to us soon. I'm still feeling dandy and hope all 'at home are the same. Lovingly, Harry J. Fuller. Ord. Dept. Repair Shop, 8th How'r Kegt, via A. P. O. 719 Av E. F MORE MEN ARE .
