FROM JACK VAN METER.
Am. Ex. Forces, Aug. 10, 1918.
Dear Sis:
Will try and answer your letter re-
ceived a few days ago, and you don’t
know how glad I was to hear from you.
Wish you eoulil sec us boys run when
the mail comes in. We are lots worse
than lining up for chow. Sorry you
didn’t get to celebrate the 4th, but
may be we can celebrate together next
year. Sure hope we can. My Fourth
was pretty dull for we were on the
boat. Yes, I got pretty seasick and it
is no good feeling, but I want to make
one more trip across and then 1 don’t
think I will ever cross Little River any
more.
We are doing some hard drilling now
and carry our pack all day, but we all
stand it fine and are as stout as a mule.
Sure wjish 1 could see Homer but don’t
think there is any chance but am go-
ing to write to him tomorrow if 1 can
get any paper. It is quite a job for
us to get paper for wc have no Y. M.
C. A. in our eity.
It rains here every day but nothing
like it is in the States, for it can rain
one hour and be dry the next.
Wc got paid the other day and was
pretty glad to get it for 1 was flat
broke. Don't know just how muc^ I
have for it is French and I don’t Know
very much about French money. I
know 1 won’t learn to talk French very
much, it is just about like the Holiness
unknown tongue.
Well, dear, I don’t know very much
news, so will ring off and try to write
you again soon. Now don’t worry and
write to me often.
As ever,
You- i< ■ ir.g bud,
JACK VAN METER.

JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.
Which Is Better—Try an Experiment
or Profit by a Tecumseh
Citizen’s Experience.
Something new is an experiment.
Must be proved to be as represent-
ed.
The statement of a manufacturer is
not convincing proof of merit.
But the endorsement of friends is.
Now supposing you had a bad back,
A lame, weak or aching one,
Would you experiment on itf
You will read of many so-called
cures.
Endorsed by strangers from far-
away places.
It’s different when the endorsement
comes from home.
Easy to prove local testimony.
Read this Tecumseh case:
D. B. Stark says: “Quite awhile ago
I was seriously bothered with my kid-
neys acting irregularly, and I had rheu-
matic pains. I used Doan ’ Kidney
Pills with goo.-l results. From the
great help Doan’s brought me I can
surely recomD«end them as a kidney
medicine of merit.’’
Price 60c, at aU dealers. Don’t
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that

HOW THEY SHOWED
THEIR GRATITUDE
Paris, Sept. 6.* (By Mail.)—How sin-
cere the gratitude of the French peo-
ple is toward the Americans is shown
in a note which accompanied a gift
of flowers from the inhabitants of a
Freneh village to the Y. M. C. A. sec-
retary of a foyer du soldat, on the
occasion of the feast day of Joan of
Arc. \
Bearing bouquets of roses, about 500
single flowers, they came, with the
youngest, a girl, presenting, together
with the flowers, a manuscript adorn-
ed with the tri-color. It was, of
course, in French, and here is the trans-
lation:
“Mr John, in honor of Ste. Jean,
allow us to address to you our best
wishes for your happiness on this her
festal day. We do not know how we
ean convey to you our gratitude for
the kindness which you have always
shown us and for your friendship to-
ward us. Also we feel embarrassed to
offer you our assurances of affection.
However, be assured that they come
from the hearts of vour big friends
and little friends anil arc as sincere
as can be.
“You have left your family, vour
country, your friends, to add your
name to the names of our neroes.
Yours is a noble task, and you have
a right to our admiration which we
arc (but feebly expressing through
these few flowers. They are but the
token of the frieudship wh'ch wo en-
tertain toward you and all the Amer-
ican people. Please accept them Mr.
John, as the expression of our sinccr-
ost thanks. Vive 1’Amerique! Vive
Is. France!”

WEEKLY FINANCIAL REVIEW.
Prepared for The County Democrat by
the St Louis Union Bank.
St. Louis, Mo.
In normal times the full demand for
money is just getting into full swing
on Kept. 1, but this year the seasonal
requirement* have come earlier, ns a
result of the early movement of the
grewt wheat crop and the general in-
clinution to be forehanded iu replen-
ishing storks.
The demand for the Industries has
been inereasing through (he summer,
and money would be very tight if the
supply was restricted to the old time
faeilities, but bemuse of the Federal
Reserve Banks thf pressure is scarce-
ly noticeable to the public.
Areoiiwiodation* are obtainable for
all approved purposes and interest
rates are kept at a level which is arti-
ficially low, considered In relation to
the demand for money, the general
level of prices and the other condi-
tions. The supply of “money” is in-
creased to meet the demands by
means of the credit machinery which
has been provided. There is no rea-
son to expect that the demands will
fall off or that the credit machinery
will fail to take eare of the new de-
mands.
As a result of the rapid movement
of the wheat crop, the sections in
which it was produced will liquidate
indebtedness and have some free cap-
ital, but the wheat will have to bo
carried somewhere until it is eaten,
ami the cotton crop is coming to mar-
ket at the highest price level ou ree-
ord.
Let's pretend, fust for today,
That our lienrts are free from woo;
Thai the wind blows fuat the way
We would Ilka to ha vs tt blow.
Lai’s prelend that what wa do
I* the work wa Ilka the beat;
Let’s pretend the eeene we view
Is of all the loveliest.
Lei's pretend we're satisfied;
Let's pretend we're brave and strong;
Maybe after wa have tried
We can do It right along.

voring to one, aalt and seasoning with
vinegar to the other.
When using cooking dishes. If they
ore washed at once, or put to soak,
they will wash much eusler and the
work that follows will not be hin-
dered.
Coffee Is much Improved If It tins
not been fresh!/ ground to stir It over
