PRINCES' THEATRE today- Co istance Talmadge 'MHONEYMOOfT WEDNESDAY Wallace Reid IN Hie House of Silence if FORT THOMAS, KENTUCKY As I have recently visited Fort Thomas and met some of the boys who have come there from Tennes see, it might be of interest to the folks back home to know what kind of a place it is. Fort Thomas is located in the out skirts of Newport, Kentucky, upon the summit of a beautiful hill over looking the Ohio river. The view of the river and the hills that stretch far away upon either the Ohio or Kentucky side is splendid, and no doubt will make a lasting impression upon the boys who spend their first 'lays of camp life there. ' Fort Thomas can be easily reach ed in a few minutes by a ride upon an electric car either from Cincinna-1 ti, Newport or Covington. Fort Thomas has an area of, 111 acres. The grounds are well shaded, and the numerous building for the most part are brick structures. At this fort as well as at all others the Y. M. C. A., and the Knights of Columbus are doing all in their pow er to look after the comfort and wel fare of the boys who come here in response to the call of Uncle Sam. Fort Thomas is what might be call ed a distributing camp, and the boys pass through "this camp to various other camps, to where they will final ly be assigned. Saturday afternoon, as I was strolling around this camp, I saw a hand wave a friendly greeting, from a crowd gathered in the shade of the medical barracks, and I hastened to where they were and found that they were the boys from Chattanooga who had arrived that morning. They looked tired as they had trav eled all night before, but young Webb told me to inform any Chatta nooga friend I might see that they were in good spirits and happy. It is an interesting study to watch the. boys come into these camps. They come in droves, some carrying suit cases, some grips, and occasion ally the poor boy from back in the hills in the country carries his scant belongings which a fond mother has packed in a pasteboard shoe box. The boy who has never been away from home may experience a sense of homesickness during the first few days in- camp, but this will melt away in the great democracy of comrade ship, where the brotherhood of man is ; welded together for a common cause. . ' . ' ' Here's to the boys from Tennessee, God bless them, one and all! B. CLAY MIDDLETON, Cincinnati. Ohio, May 25th. RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT. Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God in his wisdom and infinite good ness, to remove from our midst by death Mrs. Bonnie Addington, the wife and companion of our beloved and esteemed Brother, Henry W.

CAMPBELL Newport, Tennessee YOUR LAD AND MY LAD (By Randall Paruh.) Down toward the deep blue water, 4 marching to throb of drum, From city streets and country lano the lines of khaki corner The rumbling guns, the sturdy tread, are full of grim appeal, While rays of western sunshine flash back from burnished steel; With eager eyes and cheeks aflame the serried ranks advance; And your dear lad, and my dear lad, are on their way to France. A sob clings choking in the throat, as file on file sweeps by, Between those cheering multitudes to where the great ships lie; The batteries halt, the columns wheel, to clear tongued bugle call, With shoulders squared and faces front they stand a khaki wall. Tears shine on every watchers check, love speaks in every glance; For your dear lad, and my dear lad, are on their way to France. Before them through a mist of years, in soldier buff or blue, Brave comrades from a thousand fields watch now in proud re view; The same old Flag, the same old Faith the freedom of the world Spells duty in those flapping folds above long ranks unfu led. Strong are hearts which bear along Democracy's advance, As your dear lad, and my dear lad, are on their way to France. The word. rings out; a million feet tramp forward on the road, Along that , path rof sacrifice o'e which their fathers strode, With eager eyes and cheeks aflame, ,-with cheers on smiling lips, These fighting men of '18 move on ward to their ships. Nor even love may hold them back, or halt that stern advance, As your dear lad and my dear lad are on their way to France. Chicago Tribune.
