TO THE DIFFICULTIES
EASTER SUNDAY IN THE ARMY
Mrs. H. R. Thompson of this city
has received the following letter from
her brother, Lieut. James H. Irvin,
now in France: ;
Easter Sunday, March 31, 1918.
Dear Ittie: It has been the most
pleasant Easter Sunday, for it has
been raining almost constantly for
three days and the mud is terrible. I
thought really I knew what mud was
but I had no conception of it until we
landed here. You wear rubber boots
all of the time and most of the time
they only keep it partially off you.
But "C est la guerre," as our French
We have been more than busy these
last few days, so last night we all
gathered in the captain's dugout, and
had a little party for dinner, if one
might call it that. We had a French
lieutenant, our captain and three of
our lieutenants. The meal was not
elaborate; it consisted of Irish stew,
bread, jam and coffee which was hot
and tasted like a million dollars. One
of the lieutenants had a box of cendy
and some cigarettes that were quite
good so we fared not at all bad. Lieut.
Rodney brought 'his banjo up to the
front so he played and we all sang
the songs we would remember and
were quite "cheerio" until about 12,
when the party broke up and we all
went to our own dugouts, thinking the
evening was over and we could get
some much needed sleep, but no such
luck, for I had just undressed and
gotten into my bunk when the first
gun of our barrage went off. Our look
out had seen our rocket go up from
our infantry requesting the barrage
so our gun crews were on the job. I
jumped out into a pair of trousers and
slipped on my boots and threw a
slicker over me and started for the
gun pits to be with the men. I just
got my nose outside the dugout when
a shell burst rather close and the
next thing I knew I was choking and
getting sick. I realized that it was a
gas shell and got my mask on "tout
suite" and by that time the Boches
were throwing tHem into us pretty
stiff and we were giving them to him
for all we were worth. I got to the gun
pits and there the boys were working
like veterans. I can't say too much
for them; the explosives and gas
shells were dropping quite freely
around us, but it never phased them;
they gave them everything, and when
a big one would whistle close and go
off with a crash that would rock the
earth, I just said a little prayer that
the boys would be able to stick there
and help the infantry; and they did,
believe me. The fight lasted a couple
of hours and I never spent a more ex
citing two hours in my life; one thrill
after another. The worst of it was
that we had to wear our gas masks al
of the time, for about half of the
shells they sent on us were gas. Ev Everything
erything Everything quieted down about three and
we turned in for a bit of sleep. Today
the' front has been very active, guns
going all the time all around us, but
we have not done much fighting.
I am feeling pretty good today, just

A STATEMENT FROM
MR. W. K. ZEWADSKI
Ocala, Fla., June 3, 1918.
To the Public Generally:
I have been asked so frequently
within the last few days if it were
true, as is being asserted on the
streets rather boastfully, that I had
been given a "genteel cursing" within
the walls of our temple of justice, the
court house, that I think it proper for
me to make this statement.
Yes, it is true that Perry H. Nugent
did give me not a "genteel cursing,"
but one m which he used language too
indecent to appear in print, upon the
lower floor of the court house, which
came about in this manner:
I was the attorney for Harry B.
Clarkson in a suit for malicious prose prosecution

others. The case was upon the docket
for trial at this term of court, but be because

and was under the treatment of my
physician until recently, I did not feel
physically able to properly present my
client's cause to the court and jury,
and by reason of my physical condi
tion and other reasons, I made a mo
tion for a continuance for the term.
On Tuesday, the 28th instant, the
motion was argued and Mr. L. W. Du
val opposed the motion, as the attor
ney for the defendant, and as we con
eluded our argument P. H. Nugent
sprang to hi3 feet and said, in sub substance,

a statement in this case, as I know
more about the facts." Judge Bullock
said: "No, Mr. Nugent, you have an
attorney who has argued the case,
and I must ask that you please say
Mr. Nugent's face turned livid with
anger as he sat down. Judge Bullock
made a ruling favorable, to the de
fendants and denied my motion. I
then requested that the case go oyer
until the following morning, which
was granted. On the 29th instant, be being

trial of the cause, and as one of three
things must be done when a case is on
the trial docket, namely, try, continue
or dismiss it, and as I was not prepar prepared

had been denied, I then had the case
dismissed, stating that I would have
to bring the suit over again. I then

but before reaching the floor below
Mr. Nugent passed me and laid in

the stairway, and accosted me, and

"Enlist and go to college."
Thi3 is the reply Dr. P. P. Claxton,
United States commissioner of educa education,
tion, education, makes to the 1918 high school
graduate who is groping in the dark
in deciding the quesion whether he
should go to college or enlist at once
for military service.
Dr. Claxton points out that the war
department has made it possible to do
both, and that it is of the opinion that
young men with college training are
worth more to the government than
those without such education.
The war department, Dr.1 Claxton
says, has announced that beginning
September, 1918, military instruction,
under officers and non-commissioned
officers of the army, will be provided
in every institution of college grade
enrolling for the instruction 100 or
more able-modied students over 18
years old. The necessary equipment
will be provided by the government,
and enlistment will be voluntary, the
student becoming a member of the
United States army and liable to ac active

Only urgent necessity will make the
men liable to a call to active duty be before

the announcement, states the follow following

" 'This new policy aims to accom

as a great military asset the large
body of young men in the colleges;
and, second, to prevent unnecessary
and wasteful depletion of the colleges
through indiscriminate volunteering,
by offering to the students a definite
and immediate military status.'
"No nation," he adds, "has made
such generous provision for combined

the United States in this new plan.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
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

How many Junes, how many brides,
Have gone before, I cannot say,
I only know your veiling hides
The blushes of a bygone day,
Your mother blushed the self-same
Her mother's cheeks were tinted,
Now here's another wedding day,
And lo, the charming bride is you.
This has been so since man began
To claim fair woman for his own,
Since 'twas proclaimed unfair for man
To spend and live his life alone.
To June the sweet and silvery tone
Of wedding bells is nothing new,
This music ages long she's known,
And now the charming bride is you.
The oft repeated scene but grows
In beauty as the years go by;
Each happy maiden's wedding knows
The music of a mother's sigh.
The light of many a friendly eye,
The hand that throws the wornout
For these are joys that never die,
And now the gentle bride is you,
God grant that love shall never fade,
This is the oft repeated prayer,
The prayer that ages long have made
For every newly mated pair.
That love shall live through every
And blossom sweet 'mid sorrow's
Make like whatv burdens you must
And now this is my prayer for you.

MRS. WILLIAM FORE
After days of suffering, death

who passed away Saturday night at
the hospital, where for two weeks doc

save her life.
A couple of weeks ago-, Mrs. Fore,

in the Conner neighborhood, picking
huckleberries, tripped while trying to
step over a log, and fell almost on a
big rattlesnake, which lay coiled by
the log, and quick as a flash the. rep
tile had fixed its fangs in her thigh.
The snake was killed and Mrs. Fore
was hurried to the Marion County
Hospital. The physicians made a hard
fight to save her, and if the wound
hadn't been so close to her body, they
would probably have succeeded. Once
or twice they brought her m sight of
recovery, but she relapsed and finally
