Dear Folks: Once again I can write
you a few lines to let you know I am
still well and feeling fine. Wet got
our mail this morning for the first
time and I got three letters from you,
written the 5th, 7th and 9th' of Au
gust. It was somewhat out of dat,
but I was sure glad to get it again
anyway. I guess we will get our mail
regular now.
. Since writing you last we have had
a most interesting trip up to the
front. We topk one of the largest
convoys up that has ever been carried
through. We were called out at 11 p.
m. to start and were about five days
and nights on the road without any
sleep to amount to anything, as we
drove day and night. It was a tire tiresome
some tiresome trip, but we delivered the goods
and got back safely. The night we
were near the front, we had a peace peaceful
ful peaceful nightfs sleep in a dugout while the
heavy artillery fire roared over our
heads all night long. We had the
pleasure of seeing one German air
raider brought down after our boyi
had fired on him for several hours.
Our whole battalion is together
now for the first time since shortly
after we arrived in England.
I have a very comfortable bunk
waiting for me tonight for the first
time since we got over. We are locat located
ed located right in a French town, sleeping in
barns, sheds and anywhere we can
find room. I think we will like it here
as soon as we get settled. At any
rate I am quite sure it is better than
what we have been having. We have
been traveling almost all the time
since we got over, either by train or
with the trucks. We have certainly
had the opportunity of seeing a lot of
the country. There is certainly some
beautiful country here, and. the roads
are fine, that is the main roads be between
tween between the larger towns.
Remember me to all inquiring
friends and tell them I am well. ,1
had to stop writing to almost every
one when I got over, but would like
to if I could.
It is getting so dark I can't see how
to write any more and we haven't any
lights where we are, so will have to
stop for now. I hope to be able to
write you oftener than I have been.
I wonder if you have been getting the
letters I have written.
Lots of love to you alL I am as ever,
your devoted son, Alton.
P. S. Tuesday Morning: Since
writing this the captain told us that
we might write and tell some of the
places we have been in so our folks
mights know what part of the cou&t
try we are in at least. We have been
all through the country between Cher Cherbourg,
bourg, Cherbourg, LeHarve and Dijon. Been in
the edge of Paris, through Rouen,
Versailles, Newfchation, Nancy and
on up past Verdun to the front. I can cannot
not cannot tell you where we are located now,
but you can get an idea as to what
part of the country we have been in.
These places I have mentioned are
the places we have been with the
trucks and stopped. When we travel
on the train we hardly know where we
are. Love as ever, A. B. C.

military question to be decided by

that an armistice is almost impossi impossible,

Ocala the City Beautiful
If Ocala aspires to be counted
among the beauty spots of Florida she
has a number of things to do and the
sooner they are accomplished the bet better
ter better for her good name.
The governor and the Florida Fed Federation
eration Federation of Woman's Clubs have named
the present week' as clean-up week,
but owing to the unforseen and almost
unprecedented sweep of contagion
across 'the land it evidently is not be being
ing being observed, but no doubt a later
date will be .fixed.
In order that anything definite may
be accomplished in Ocala, our city
authorities with the co-operation of
the board of trade and Woman's

Club should take the lead and enlist

every household in a crusade that
will show what wonders can be ac accomplished
complished accomplished in one week.
Every city lot should be made to
look its best, from the .edge of the
pavement to the back fence, and that
in a large section of the town in includes
cludes includes that part of the street where
the sidewalk ought to be, but is not.
Every street in the city where there
are residences should have a good
walk on at least one side of the

street. The city should compel this

as it is oi more importance tu many
people than the condition of the road roadway,
way, roadway, for not all our inhabitants or
winter visitors have automobiles at

their command.
Where a city is spread over a large
territory and has as many vacant
lots as Ocala, the condition of these
unoccupied spaces can make or mar
the town. The care of such lots not
owned by residents should be under undertaken
taken undertaken by the city and the cost added
to the taxes.
fit has been suggested that the city
lot surrounding the public library be
imDroved bv adding a tennis court,

where our young people can enjoy
that healthful game, and that the old
building now standing on the corner
be either transformed into a touris
club house, or torn down, and from a
part of the material build a pergola
like structure with roof and floor and
open sides surrounded by benches,
where visitors can sit and watch the
games. All of this in connection with
the library, the basement of which
could be used to store racquets and

nets, and as a refuge in case of storm,
would make for our city a very attrac attractive
tive attractive resort for tourists and in a
measure take the place of the larger
and more beautiful park we hope to
have later when times are better.

This might not be accomplished in

a week, but something along that line

should be done and could be with
very little expense.
It seems almost a disgrace that the
alleyways back of our stores should
be forever covered with waste paper,

Information that Will be of Consid Considerable

In making a survey of the nursing
facilities of Marion county, Mrs. O.
T. Green, the county Red Cross chair chairman
man chairman of this particular branch of the
Red Cross, found quite a number of
practical nurses, a few graduate
nurses and some who though they
had very little experience still were
willing volunteers to aid in times of
need. Especially among the negroes
did she find a number who expressed
a desire to be nurses, and do their
part to help the government.
She submits the following list of

names which may be of service to
