C., jfr Dear Mr. Johnson:? It has been my intention to weft# j you for some time, but waiting for Vjf transport, homeward bound, has 1cdj me very busy Up to, and including the elevenJJ hour of November 11th, the buy? i our regiment were always o n the ale and ready at any time to meet the eL^ emy for a free-for-all fight. * Sin*#? that time, those of us who was fortu nate enough to come out with a wtidf hide, have been more, alert thafo e* for news of an order bidding up aril take ur our bed and walk to a jortj embarkation. We arrived safely overseas AufW 11th, after a very pleasant trip *crofi,' Was fortunate in not having but tWQ, days of rough sea the entire trip. Ax-*; ter spending two days in England at % rest camp, better known as a pes^ camp, we sailed for the country are now existing in. Landing at Z&\ Havre, we traveled by rail to the lage of Tanlay, France, where we re mained until Sept. 17th, going frol^ there to what is known *a the St. Die Sector on the Alsace border. Thie sector was xpry quiet during our thir7 ty days occupation but enough hap* pened each day to ke?p a (ellow minded that a war was on. In our post of observation we coul?} see the Hun in his from lines and he looked very harmless from a dffetafttf of four kilometers, but if a few\?3i*? fell near him he usually answered iback with his 77. I No doubt, those in power decided that our division, (Wildcats) 81st. was made up of such good soldiers that they would place us where there wa? | some real fighting going *>n. On November 1st, we Began the hike 'that carried us thru St. Mehiel sector ' on to the front which waa at that time I in the lower edge of the Argonne For?* est about twelve kilometers east ox Verdun. Arriving there on the 3rd | and 4th, orders came to prepare for a drive to take pla<>e on ttie morning of i the 9th and such a busy body of men as we were, preparing to carry out the orders. . j Shall never forget the weather con ditions on the mortiing of Nov. A very dense fog covered everything and it was almost impossibly to jSe ?any object tor any distance. Xju roads were muddy -and-the heavy ffnl fic making them worse a seach hour passed. According to orders, the 321st and 322nd regiment of our division began the drive which was in full bloom the hour the Armistice took place. Our rcgidient. 323rd. began its part of the program on Sunday morntng the 10th, and over the top, into the low lands, the boys went as if they were after a (car load of jam waiting for them at the next town. ! Thu Hwmmi with lintr nnrir no din g aitilkry and machine gun tiro, would send a brave lad to his final resting I place every now and then, but the ' drive continued, and the morning of the close we were five and- one half kilometers nearer Berlin. i n m iini nin tiinr in mrinH.ri fin comparatively small the dZ4ttiueai ing the greater loss of all four regiments. The war is over now and the cry from every side is, take me ba<?k to America and home. I The Slst division is located in the area around Chatillon Sur Seine, cov ering a territory of about thirty kilo meters square. The men are very comfortably fixed and the main object in view now is to furnish entertainments for the boys. Every regiment gathers its talent to put on the best show possible with the available material. The division has a show now touring France, entertain ing the boys of the A. E. F. -Now, while writing would like to know why the Franklin Times has ne ver arrived in France for my approv al. Was notified months ago that it was. being sent to my army address but have never received a copy. Will compromise the case with you provided >ou will use the influence of your paper toward the return of the A. E. F. Tont Suite. S'il Vaus Plait. With kindest regards to you and the force. hoping to see you all soon, too, 1 ant ' Yciy truly yours. 1 R^NCIS L. EDENS, ITg. Co. 323 Inf. U. S. P. O. 791. American E. F.

He want through the conflict without receiving a wound, though his regiment suffered many casualties and encured great hardships, of one may believe the ac count given in the article entitled "The Last Fight." in a recent, number of the Saturday Evening Post. In a recent letter he tells of a dream he had while waiting for the hour to arrive at which they were to begin that "last fight." It is interesting on ly because of the conditions under which a soldier may fall asleep.

Information Concerning Tlic Health of the People of Frank lin Connty, Worth Your Atten. tlon. By I)R. J. E .MALONE, Health Officer. j Throughout the country this month j of March is looked up as clean up ? month. Now we want to beg the Liv erymen of our town to please try to get their horse stables cleaned out ; and the manure hauled out of Town or put in the ground. We all know that I In and about horse stables are the I great source In which flies deposit their eggs and in a few days thousands and millions of flies go forth on their dis ease carrying and death dealing work. Horse stable manure in the stalls and 'halls are not so prolific in the produc tion of flies as the stationary pile of manure, because that in halls and stalls are being continually moved by j the tramping of horses and attendants, Iso try and not leave the manure pile I stationary as in seven or eight days if I we do we will certainly have a large crop of flies. Let all of our citizens I in town and county sec \f> It. that no trash or filthy piles of refuse remain any length of time around their prem ises and horse and cow stables. We 1 have recently sent out to nil the prcft lic schools a large chart or pQRter, "Guide for Teachers" telling them all about contagious diseases among school children. The instructions and ? information contained on this chart will be of the greatest help In prevent ing disease. With these school teach ers working with us along health lines we outside of the schools must do our duty and we will have done much to ftj^vent Spring and Summer diseases. Mr. G. M.
