THE DZLDING DANNER-NEV5 PACE SEVEN V v r pmsoriEnsALLGoriE JAIL L1UST MIRE HELP After all, there is something funny about this prohibition business, par ticularly so because of the fact that the wet fellows always used to prove conclusively that crime would be more common with prohibition than with the saloons. The following, clipped from the Press of Monday, July 15, tells just about how good a thing the saloons are: "The Kent county work farm is not a prison farm now. After struggling along for several weeks after prohi bition went into effect in Michigan Manager Ralph Dolt is now without a single prfsoner. Rather than let the crops suffer he has engaged two men on a monthly salary basis to look after the work until the farm can bo replenished. For several weeks not more than four men were confined on the farm, but Monday the last man's sentence expired. The shortage of prisoners is so acute in Kent countv that Sheriff C. A. Berry is contem plating asking the supervisors to al low him to engage a janitor for the county jail. Heretofore there have been enough prisoners to act as hall boys to do the sweeping, washing and caretaking at the jail. There are only a few prisoners in the jail now una me snerm says ne win soon be out or hailboys." LITTLE FPEflCII GIRL WRITES ANOTHER LETTER Ctat of Ohio. Cy of ToUuo. Luc&a County, m. Frank J.

Ma-,-.-.- Ghautauquas An Integral Part of Our National Defense" President Wilson says: President Wilson on Dec 11 1317. wrote the President of the International Lyceum and Chautauqua Association as follows : 'Your speakers, going Irom community to community, meeting reople in the friendly spirit engendered by years of Intimate and under standing contact, have been cU'ccuve messengers for the delivery and Interpretation of democracy's meanings and imperative needs. The wot It that the Chautauqua Is doing has not lost importance because of war. but rather has gained new opportunities for service. 'Let Die express the hope that you will let no discouragement weaken your activities, and that the people will not fail in the support cf a patriotic institution that may be said to be an Integral part of the national defense," Vice-President Marshall says: There Is no place where more ffood can be done to the government and to the cause than upon the Chautauqua platform. The people who need Information will be there, and. more and more as the years So by, persons who can get It are availing themselves of that avenue.' ' . Secretary of War Baker says : - 1 am constantly facing the splendid results of the work done by the Chautauquas in this country in creating and sustaining a sound patriotic public feeling, and in carrying forward the great national enterprises which the government is necessarily bringing to the atten tion of our people; and I want you to know that as an officer of the government 1 not only appreciate the Importance of the lecture plat form as a means of communication and expansion, but also appreciate the work which you and your associates are doing as a contribution to our National cause." Two years ago we might have done without Chautauquas, but we cannot do without them today.

I have received your letter of the 11th of May Just today and I answer it as soon as 1 may. I got your post cards too and was so pleased with them. I send you some views of Paris. Those Germans are barbarous to put pieces of glass in your flour and candy. Here, beginning of the war, they put fine pieces of steel like little forks in the oat and the horses died when they eat it But the'r cruelty is greater than before. I thank -you to want to send me some silk thread when the war will be over. You are very kind and the best of friends. I hope to see your brother before the war will be end if he may have a furlough. I know a girl who writes to an Am erican soldier, he is sergeant in one Engineers Ry. and he came to visit Par.s while days. My brother Henry is in the army since the 16th of April, 1917. f He has 'been wounded 5 days ago, the 3rd of June. He is wounded in the right arm and the right foot. Henry is now in a hospital in Paris, we may go to see him. I saw my dear Henry the day after he arrived in that hospital; it was Wednesday and I shall go tomorrow to visit him again. He suffer very much when the nurse dress his arm. He was wounded in Villers-Cotterets forest. Very many of his fellows were killed. I wish the war would end while he is in the hospital but am afraid he get well again and go back in the fire line. You say dear Maude that you reg istered as Red Cross nurse, but do you will come in France or remain in Belding. -I think you will have more to do here as nurse than over there. I have received your letters of the 25th and 28th of March and this of the 11th of May. The American soldiers are helping the French and British soldiers in the front line. We do not know how to thank those American soldiers who come in France to defend a" country which is not theirs. I admire that. You say that when you wrote your letter at 5:30 p. m. I must be sleeping. I think it must be about 10 p. m. here but I do not sleep as soon as that. I, go to my bed at a quarter to eleven in ; the night about, it is a habit and mo-' ther may say. 'Louise go to your bed, j it is late. 1 cannot 1 answer, I wait for the gothas, Mother." Last week they came since the Tuesday even the Sunday all the nights. We ha,ve the habit of that we remain in our bed now. In news papers we read we must go in our cellars but we are so well in our bed that many people remain in their room. v Here we have fine weather these days. Sav Maude, when do the seasons be gin over there? Here spring begins onthe 21st of March. Summer the 21st of June. Autumn comes the 21st of Septem ber. Last comes winter the 21st of December. In B. Aires when we are in winter here,they are hot as they are in sum mer. it is the opposed. We do not have meat on the Wed nesdays, Thursday and Fridays now. Before we did not had only on Mon davs. but now it is changed. I asked to one of my friends who can write English if she would write to that young married woman you said me but she writes to an Ameri can soldier, an English gentleman who Jives in London and a girl who is in the middle of France.then she has not courage to have another correspond ent for English, liut I said a girl my perplexity and she promised me to find a correspondent. As soon as I shall know her name and address I shall write to you. The soldier's brother who writes to your mother has a furlough. He is in Saint Denis but his brother is going to Kalonica. Hoping to hear from you in a few days, I remain your loving friend, Louise. SMYRNA Last Friday night about 100 old friends and relatives of Capt. Clay ton Hoppough gave a party at Macca bee hall.

Our future will be In the balance. Every man, woman and child will in some way be af fected each one of us will be directly or indirectly con cerned by what is then done. There must be no peace without vic tory. The victory so dear ly won by our boys on the field of battle must be defended and safe guarded at the Council Board of the Nations. L Truman . Newberry Let Michigan end a man to the United States Sen ate who not only has the ability, but whose training es pecially fits him to meet the demand of a task so vital to us all a red blooded American who will Insist that there be no peace until we have won the war who will see to it that we do not lose in council the slightest part of what we have with so much sacrifice won In the field.
