Dear Editor of The News: We will try and give a few items from the busy iittle.city of Knoxville. The health is .very good and every one is eager and willing to do their bit to win the war. We are hooverizing to the limit. We are allowed to give only two bis cuits to each person and two tea-spoon-fuls of sugar for their cof fee, while some take it and go on in a manly way, others will snurl up their nose and say bad things about it, but who are they? They are like some of the people that Snookum spoke of on Pumpkin Ridge. Snookum you're around here, yes I know vou and wish I could spend this Sunday after-noon on your front porch chattieg with you and your family. You were speaking of the lofty peaks and beautiful scenery of Hancock Co. It makes me oh! so homesick. I wish I could go back to Hancock and spend two or three months. We are true students of nature and would like to roam over the dear old hills and valleys and gazo on things that are real true and beautiful. I cf ten think of the old farm house nestled among the hills and mountains of dear old East Tenn., where we spent our childhood days and oh! how we wish we could recall thoso happy days and stand once more in the old home door with our youthful hearts throbbing with joy. watching the lightening flashes as they p'ayed along the hill tops casting their illuminat ing ravs over the little valley be low, or; wander where we useaM wander over tho; old bills ( watch the bees sip honey fx.. the poplar and the poppy blossom but my dear 4 friend, those days past and forever gone therefore, all we can do is to make the best cf things that time in its fleet ne3s brinps us nearer Eternity, and loo, Snookum, you were speaking cf thcold mill. We can see the mill with its moulding wheel in our imagination, where we u.-:ed to l ide Alec and Lize and while we waited for our grist to be ground we would wade in the creek or slid a down the red banks that wc can't very well forget. Hut Sncokum since those days time has put lines in our faces and silver in our hair. We spent the glorious Fourth with Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Trent at Morristown and feasted on green beans, ham, rake and fried chik en. At 5:30 we started back U noisy city and :a wc pullel ' into tno pt?Uon. a trcop tram had ju t arrived from some W st crn point. lost all the soldiers set-nnid to l o enjoying them selves while others corned Fad. " Will say to Lon Odom of CaBp Meade, Md. Whydcn't you tell through the. News how you likoj our new camp? We w;sh for you to be v.ith u. and hope you will, as soon a3.you nil lick the KrJrcrgood and rttrnt. We had the tkasure to hear a Rritish soldier, j'jst from the trenches make a .recch on the war. He carried one arm in a sling and w alked with a cane. Tho Germans did him a dirty job He said he was willing to fight ti!i he d ed for hi country. Hello!

You need n6t worry about me in the least. I think we wiU have the Huns lick ed before a great while and then I will return homo with good news and tell you of my. exper ience in Europe. I am still with Co. B.' 11 3th. M. A. RnJ . I think most of the boys enjoyed their trip across the At lantic, Although our fare was not the best owing to the fact that there w ere a little over seventeen ' . aT hundred on the loaL Since 1 have crossed the pond I have been in Liverpool England, also London Dover. I have Been the Knglish Channel anil the Irish Sea. We stayed a little while In Calias, France. France in a beautiful country, but tho people are behind time in mot of the modern methods. Their farming implements are nltogether different from ours. They are very rude mado tools. Th?p?ople ride in peculiar twa whi-el calls drawn by onlv, one horse. Their trains are very much smaller than ours and not near as accommodating rs ours. Their dwelling houso and barn are un dor the sane roof. They are built of brick and covered with til . i np;. Sometimes the roofs are thatched with straw. The build ings are generally enclosed by strong brie k wcllit. The French are not very sanitay. They live more like rats than people. I im not on the firing line vet, bl t,njghtjfc rant bear the big guns roai fng. .And fn the f ter noon I see our allies going over to visit tho Huns in the airplanes So I will cloae, hoping to hear from you real soor.
