Zella Hutchinson, oldest daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Hutchinson,
died last Thursday morning at the
home of John Wilson, in Aline. She
had been sick with typhoid fever,
but was thought to be Improving
and was taken worse a short time
before death came. The deceased
was a bright and beautiful girl,
just blooming into young vromau-
hood and it seems sad indeed that
she must be snatched away from
loving parents, sisters and brother
by the Grim Reaper. Yet death is
inevitable for us all. and the pass-
ing of our loved ones should but ce-
ment the stronger the bond between
us and our Heavenly Home. We ex-
tend to the bereaved family the sym-
pathy of the community.

The following interesting letter
from Delbert Mann, a graduate of
the Northwestern class' of '13, has
been handed us by a friend. Mr
Mann has gone as a teacher in an
American college in Constantinople.
He has many friends in Alva who
will be glad to learn that he had a
pleasant voyage and who hope that
he may safely pass through the trou-
bles that now embroil the continent
of Europe.—Kil l

I will start this letter tonight, add
to it each day the "happenings there-

a few weeks, at least. It gives one

the sea fairly calm. Tonight, how-
ever. It is rolling quite heavily. One
lady had to leave the dining room

The “Principessa Mafelda" is a
fine boRt. She runs, ordinarily, be-
tween Buenos Ayres, S. A., and Italy,
but was chartered by Americans In
Italy to bring them home and is
now returning to resume her regu-
lar run. All the crew are Italians,
and we have had some amusing ex-
periences trying to understand them
and trying to make them understand
us, and figuring out the bill of fare.
There are so few De Luxe and
first class passengers that we all use
the DeLuxe dining room. It is beau-
tiful and everything Is of the best.
The schedule Is something like this:
Breakfast from 7 to 9, lunch at 12,
tea at 4, dinmr at 7:30 and tea at
10. Lunch and dinner are elaborate
affairs. Fine orchestra music is
provided and coffee served In the
foyer after each.
Among the passengers Is teh new
American minister to Greece, Mr.
Droppus and his family. Mr. Thorp,
the vice secretary of the American
legation at Athens, is also on board.
He is such a pleasant young fellow.

Friday, Sept. 11.
The happens of this day will be
very brief for two reasons. In the
first place there has been nothing
out of the ordinary occurred, have
seen nothing except water and a few
clouds, not even a single ship. In
the second place, the ship is rolling
so it is quite difficult to write. We
have been in a rough sea and the
ship lias been rolling heavily all day
and is even worse tonight. We are
running -against a heavy northeast

promises. Have not been sea sick
yet, but am afraid it is coming. I
feel all right as long as I stay on
deck in the wind. The rolling is
getting worse, so will stop
Saturday, Sept. 12.
Another day spent on the ocean,
and I must say it has not been a,
very pleasant one.' The sea is much
rougher than yesterday and the
ship is rolling worse. It has a dou-
ble roll now. I find it very difficult
to walk, for one minute you are go-
ing up hill and the next down.
