a record of flour and substitutes they

Each town in the county is going

received the following letter from a
friend who is with the Second Divis Divisional
ional Divisional Signal Company with the Brit British
ish British army in France.
France, April 23rd, 1918.
Dear Friend: I received your
letter dated March 17th, a few days
ago. .Lvidently 1 have not received
one of your letters, while some of
mine have gone astray. I know that
two went down, as the mail lost be
tween certain dates have not been
published. Since November I have
written at much shorter intervals,
and have never exceeded three weeks
between letters. Of course, I can cannot
not cannot set any special time in which to
write. If I could you would know
just when they were lost. I think
it is wonderful the amount of mail
we do get when one looks at the
chances of its not getting through.
Yes, I occasionally come across
some of the boys in the U. S. Army.
I was talking to a young engineer
from Boston a few days ago. There
is a party of U. S. Engineers work working
ing working by us, so you see that I see the
familiar uniform quite often, and I
hope to see some familiar faces among
them some of these days. The time
will soon be here when the weight of
the American forces will be felt by
the German, and, if I mistake not,
at the critical time. He is making
his big effort now, and I firmly be believe
lieve believe that it is doomed to fail. I can cannot
not cannot see it otherwise. He may gain
land at tremendous cost, I guess that
he may get all he wants of th&t at our
price, but that is not going to win the
war for him, so long as he does not
break through, and we are all firmly
determined that he shall not do that.
If he did it would not affect the spir spirits
its spirits of the troops any. Time is an
important factor in the game that is
not to be overlooked, and I believe
that through the stubborn resistance
of the Allied troops, time is against
the enemy. Every week gained
means so many more troops against
At times the situation must look
bad to you so far away from opera operations,
tions, operations, and it will at times cause
worry. But I can surely say that
one and all of us here feel confident of
final victory. The war is not over
by any means yet. The real thing
hes just started, and the Allies have
yet to be heard from. I have talked
with boys from different branches of
the service who have been through
the thickest of it all and the only
thing they tell about is the way they
mowed down Germans just tickled
to death at the chances they got to
do this. We have not been out of
it by any manner of means, though
we did not get into the real thing.
I got ten hours sleep in five days,
and did more marching than for soma
time, and we are ready for anything
that may come along.
Naturally there is a lot of talk
about the U. S. troops going in, and
I tell you there is a lot expected of
them, and the people feel confident
that they will measure up to expec expectations.

Today is a splendid day, warm,

out, it is so much warmer than any
we have had for some time. The
last few days were cold and clouded,
with lots of rain, and an occasional
flurry of snow. The night have
been cold, and, when clear, frosty, i
think we are due for some good warm

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize v
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may. be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government. j
