about 30 days ago and lost my voice

all right. Hope you are all 0. K.
We are up near the old original
German boundary linepwcare within
a few miles of Belgium and crossed
the Meuse river several days ago. We
are in a nice town here. When we
captured this town we freed 550
French prisoners that the Boche had
held in captivity for four yearsfand
you can imagine how glad they were
to see us. I think we are. going o
get to come home before many Hays.
Hope so anyway. . I would like to eat
Christmas dinner at home. Don't
know how it will ke.
There are several nice towns
around in this vicinity. The Boche
didn't have time, to blow them us as
we put them over-the road so fast.
Guess most of them are in Berlin by
So I will close, wishing you all a
merry Christmas and a happy New

Influenza, Colds,
Sore Throat
Spreading ' Throughout
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 chest, 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
breathing1 -more easy, relieving;, the
pains. And for the cough a? few
drops on a little sugar uuually 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. '', On' sale' s Cen

Again I will write you a line or so,
as'l have never heard from you since
I have been in France. v
I sent you a card the day I land
ed over seas telling you I had arrived
safely. X had a letter from
yesterday; and you bet I was glad to
hear from her, A letter is always
thankfully received over here from
anyone, in the states. Today I re
ceived a letter from Edith which was
written in August.
Well, I think we will have peace
pretty soon, and won't it be great?
Christmas will soon be here, and if
you send me anything, you will have
to hurry up or I won't get it until
after Christmas. You must be sure
jbd go to see B for me. I have
also written her a number of times
and have had no answer yet. I hate
to 'hear the mail called off and all the
rest of the boys get mail but me.
Well, Sis, how is Haskell and old
Earl? Where is Philip and what is
he doing? Tell him he must write
me a line or two. It has been sever
al days since I heard from him. I
want you to write me more often
every week anyway. Tell I re
ceived her letter all O. K. and have
answered It.
Well, I will close my letter as I
can't think of anything else to write.
Be sure to write soon and all the

"Liberty Fuel" Is
, To Be Marketed
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12. Quan
tity production of "Libefty fuel," the
War Department's new substitute
for gasoline, which cjtn be manufac
tured and sold for half the present
price of gasoline, will be begun by
private interests as soon -fls patents
protecting the Government and the
inventor can be obtained.
Meanwhile the largest producers of
gasoline are feverishly experiment
ing and . trying in every possible way
to obtain the secret formula from the
only two men wno knowlt Major 0.
B. Zimmerman, of the engineer corps
and Capt. E. C. Weisgerber. 1
Major Zimmerman said today that
arrangements for manufacture are
now pending. The patents will be
issued in the name of the Govern
ment avnd of Captain Weisgerber.
The Kaiser's
The Kaiser's attempt to kill him
self is surprising, if, true. For "sui
cide is confession." The Kaiser with
the Bible and other religious books
piled up on his table, has doubtless,
convinced himself himself that he is
thorougly in the right in- all that he
has done. That is a peculiarity of
those highly religious in a misguided
way. To blow out his brains or cut
his throat now would be to confess
himself in the wrong.
It might, however, be only con
firmation of what Maximilian Harden
says, that the Kaiser is a coward. He
'is a strange mixture of blood, and
there has been mny chances for the
cowardly streak to get in. -
Vann Bros, have to wind up their
business now and for this reason
their large stock will be sold t a
great v reduction. This means that
one of the largest stocks in East Ten
nessee will now be placed on the mar
ket at prices that will astonish you.
