Adair Co., News: I take this method of sending to my friends back at home these few wordb of greeting from over here. I have been on this side of the Atlantic since April 8 th. During that time I have seen a goodly part of England, what remains of Belguim and the whole of France from the north to Masseilles and Nice on the Mediterranean Sea. A convalscent leave after an appendix operation gave me the opportunity of seeing Southern France. Our first stop in France was in a small village some distance back from the zone of war activities. Here we were brought into close contract with typical French rural life. The people were generous, hospitable and appreciative of our timely coming. In spite of the handicap of a foreign language, which very few of us had ever studied, our men associated much with our foreign allies. We managed to pick up enough words and phrases to answer in monosyllables their questions, which you could usually tell by the inflection of their voice, All our boys are fast learners and many will come back to the states with a Parisian accent as well as manners. There are many things we could profitably learn from the French, but, I think, there are far more that tfiey could learn from us. Their methods of agriculture are antiquated. Their crops of grain are harvested by hand as we did two or three generations ago. This is done from necessity, mostly by the patriotic and industrious women. The roads of France are simply splendid.

They are perfectly graded and so constructed that you will reach a great altitude with an almost imperceptible incline. The scenery of this region is delightful. 1 spent a few days in the French Capital, and took advantage of seeing many things of interest there, especially interesting to one on his first visit to Paris.

Of course you people at home who read, know as much about tha general situation as anyone who occupies a small sector over here. Just a word in regard to my own work. I never saw people more responsive and more open to a religious appeal than these boys here. They are not scared but serious and ready to listen to anyone who brings them a message of optimism and hope in such times as these. I used to wish for opportunitie for minis try and service, that anyone could have. I only hope to be able, in some small way, to measure up to this opportunity. I believe in God and that out of this night of darkness and death He will bring a day that will be brighter and better than it was before.

"Before I commenced taking 1NDU I was so weak in my back and had such a tired feeling I did not know what to do with myself, and felt of no account I got where I could not do my house work. I began taking IN- DU and when I had finished a bottle the terrible rheumatism commenced to leave me, and after the second bottle my trouble become less and less. I have taken three bottles and I am on my fourth. I feel fine better than I have for ten years. "My neighbors for miles around know how I suffered kidney trouble and rheumatism. They all know that I am free from my troubles now They can't hep knowing it, for I go around to their homes and talk with them."

Every ounce of her thought and energy during the three weeks dedicated to the fourth Liberty Loan should be employed in arousing in her own household and the households of her neighbors an eagerness to lend every possible penny, and to lend it quickly. Thus the fourth Liberty Loan may become a message or far- flung encouragement to our boys across the seas; a message of unpleasant augury to their foes. For every bulletin of the mount ing millions will cry out in tones unmistakable: "We are raising a greater fund than men and women have ever raised. We are raising it in three weeks, when smaller loans have taken four. Money is nothing to us we sacrifice it gladly for the sake of speed. For the sake of a quicker vic tory, and the return of our boys to their homes." In the spirit of that message let us face the greatest loan in history: a loan too large 'to be subsribed by banks and business houses so large that it must come out of the little economics of women. A Mother's Loan a cry from the heart of American in a tight place owing to the allied advance and the subsequent closing of some of the German front-lin- e railroads is shown by Walter Littlefield, New York war expert. He predicts a new retirement by Ludendorf to shorten the front a"nd improve transportation conditions. Gen. March, talking on the war situation, says 1,750,000 Americans are now overseas. Reports to the War Department, he continued, tell of encourag ing results on all battlefronts, and it is estimated German losses this Bummer have been 200,000 in prisoners alone. The Government of Northern Russia is seeking to bring order out of chaos.

John is induced to read Edward Everett Hale's famous story: "THE MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY " and the incidents seem to him like a replica of his own life in a previous existence. As Lieut.

E. NOE, Columbia, Ky. MANY SPIES YET AT LARGE Allies' Wonderful Successes Overcomes Morale Displayed by Germans Early In the War. The German Crown Prince has been given a six months' vacation, according to dispatches received by way of Amsterdam. His beaten armies have been shoved back a long way from Paris and the heir to the German throne has been retired, at least temporarily, from his command. The fighting Americans, backed up by the Liberty Loans, have already accomplished so much in the Job of whipping the Kaiser. America has a chance to shove the Crown Prince even farther back into private life. With the Fourth Liberty Loan opening September 28 the massed avalanche of American dollars will again hit the Hun line. Since the Third Loan was made the Allies have stopped the German offensive, saved Paris and are now slowly but surely shoving the Hun armies back toward the Rhine. Kaiser Losing Caste. Uc5Ubtedly the quick subscription of the Fourth Liberty Loan will cast a gloom over Germany. Reports coming from that country indicate that the Kaiser is losing some of the old popularity that made him an idol. Reports from neutral countries and articles in the German papers show that the Huns are cheering their people by telling them that the Americans are not in the war. They have claimed that Americans would never be able to land a big army In France. Now that the army lis there, the Hun generals are, telling the people that America will fail to furnish the money to support that army and give it food and ammunition. Any Indication that Americans are failing to buy Fourth. Liberty Bonds will have a wonderfully cheering effect on the German General Staff. Such news would please these arrogant Huns better than a report that they had captured a division ol French, English or American soldiers. Hun Watches America. The Huns know that America has the money and the men to carry the war right up to the gates of Berlin. What the Kaiser is now hoping is that American people will be careless oi Indifferent about furnishing the money that is to keep the United States army ready and fit to fight. His spies that have not been captured and jailed are busy. They are watching the situation in every part of this country, Sooner or later their reports reach the master spy in Berlin and the Prussian war lords are mightily pleased when they can mark off a certain spot In the United States as having failed to do its duty to its national government. What the German general stafi would like to see would be an American army in France, cut off from this country by means of the submarines. They weuld like to see it weakened and starved so It could be cut to pieces by German forces. Lack oi money to support the American army will cut it off from this country just as much as though all our transports and freighting ships were being suns by submarines. The American dollai that is not used In buying Fourth Liberty bonds is a slacker dollar and it is helping to cut off the American boys who are over there from the help and the needed support back home. whole-heartedl- y Q.

The French people is so different, the boys wear dresses until they are eleven or twelve years old and they wear wooden shoes, it sounds like a truck coming over the bridge. When they go out to make hay they take a hand 'rake, to rake up the hay. You can see women driving oxens in a wagon hauling wood, The women aure do some work. I don't think it will be very long until their husband's will come home, and then of course we will be ready to come back to the good U. S. A. I noticed in the News that quite a number of boys register ed at Columbia. Hope they will soon be over and help finish this fuss and we will get to come back that much sooner. I was just in service six week until I was marching in France, with 60 pounds on my back and hikeing 15 to 16 miles aday. All of the boys had better save their money and take care of their shoes as sixty pounds on their back sure makes your feet have the blues. Most of this company was trained in Oklahoma. , They are the National guard of St Louis. I was very green when I came into the Company, but I am trying tb learri.at every opportunity. So I have been acting corporal for a while but don't think I'll like it as there is to much responsibility for nothing. I have brothers in camp some where but don't know for sure just where at. I hope I.will meet some of them in the near future and some of 'the Adair county boys also. I have not seen any boys in this Division from Kentucky. I would be glad to meet some one I know, but most of them are from St. Louis, N. Dakota and Texas.
