Keeping tbe Uniform.
Your Uncle Sam, after keeping
his eye somewhat closely -bent
upon the cost "column in his book
of war expenses, has decided that
discharged soldiers may keep
for their own the uniforms in
which they are mustered out of
service. Secretarv Baker- has

We left New York harbor- on

destroyers that accompanied us
made things too hot around for
"Undershooting," so we came
out O K. and reached Liverpool
after fourteen days on the sea.
We lay in the harbor that night
and next morning we started up
the Manchester Canal toward
vancheater. It took us a little
over a day to go to Manchester
and on the 15tri day after step

to 'terra firma," arid- some

when I-get back, for I am al
ready learning quite a bit of ths
language, and it looks as if we
will have the opportunity of
learning a whole lot of it before
we get back to God's'- Coun -try."
But that is .off the sub
ject. After leaving at Manchester,
Eng, we rode by -rail to South
hampton to a rest camp. The
reason for the name rest camp
must be because one does every
thing there except rest. Any
way we spent only one night at
that place and went on .boardt the
U S S Harvard the following
afternoon and spent the nigh ton
the English Channel, and woke
up next morning with Le Harve,
France staring us in the face.
We wre over there." We
hiked from the wharf up a hill
that must have, been several
mil.es long a&d j went to another
rest camp, and spent several
days- and nights there. Pi om
here we left by rail., riding in
'side door" 4ullmans, as the
hoys call the -French box cars,
are about one-third as large as
an American box car, have one
wheel under each corner, a door
on jeacrw side and are pulled
along at a pretty rapid, rate of
speed; it being a wonder they

This was our home for about
three days and nights, we ate
and slept in here, little ! sleeping
though, for we had to take turns

only way we could sleep was to
sit up and sleep, which war not
at all comfortable
