TWO CHUMS. EDGAR COULBORNE BURKEY. - What I have to say will be only a poor attempt of what I wish to say. This morning I received the news of the death of Coulborne Burkey, in France. For many months of anx iety we have been scanning the cas ualty lists from the Celd of slaugh ter with ' gasping, heart-filled throats to see whose mother's boy had fallen. And day by day the sad news comes of some one who has taken the last Great Adventure, and each succeed ing day the news strikes deeper into our hearts. Edgar Coulborne Burkey dead in France! How hard to believe. A boy with whom my life was so closely associated froth in the work-a-day world and in the school room taken from a happy home only to die in a foreign land!" But why weep for him? The best possible lo be said might be said, and then the story of his rich, joung life would only half be told. His last letter to his mother was only a natural sequence of a life lived like this a simple, trusting, conse crated life hidden with Christ in God. , Too well did I know him to think that he feared to face the foe of .civilization (and even had I not known him, I would believe the same, for I have my first real yellow Amer ican soldier yet to see). His home people should be consoled with the thought that he offered his life will ingly, and had he been permitted to go to- the front, he would have gone with the spirit as he expressed it. "Don't worry, mamma. Ifitis,God's will, I will come back; and, if not. it is all right." And when he wrote the word "all" he meant heaven. Too much consideration and sym pathy cannot be offered by the peo ple of his community to his stricken father, mother, brothers and sisters in this their hour of supreme sorrow and tears. His former teacher and comrade, SERGT. BENJ. H. BOWERS. December 8, 1918. , Camp Johnston, Florida. Influenza, Colds, Pneumonia, Sore Throat the Spreading Throughout Country. Many are finding relief from in fluenza, Colds, Sore Throat and per haps preventing Pneumonia, it is said, by the use of Miller's Antiseptic Oil (known as Snake Oil). Its great penetrating, pain-relieving qualities insure almost instant relief when ap plied freely on the chet, or throat well greased when first symptoms arise The Oil penetrates through to the affected parts and tends to open up the air passages, making breathing more easy, relieving the pains. And for the cough a few drops on a little sugar usually brings prompt relief. Don't fail to have a bottle on hand when the attack comes on,, and if used according to directions results are assured, or your money refunded.
