France Fighting tilorously lor the Old Flag
About 5 o’clock Tuesday evening a wire was received telling'
of the death iu actio i of Sid Clark of til’s city, sou of Mr. and
Mrs. C. F. Clark. It was the regular government message and
gave no details, stating only that he fell in action on July liOtb.
This is the tirst home hoy to fall m this great world war and the
family has the deepest symdathy of the entire community.
We realize the deep sorrow of the family, but they cannot help
but feel apride, as does everybody, in the boy who lias honored,
not only his family, but our little community, and state and na
tion as well. Sid was one of our tinest boys, and while there
are no details, we know he gave a good account of hfmselt Tho
we all grieve with the tatnily, we realize that this is war and
this brings it home to us and has a tendency to make us “see

Will write you a few lines to
let you and the folks around
Coyle know I am still in exist-
ance, still pind some time to
write to the ojd home paper
once more, and quite a little
time at that. My Co. and five
others are still in detention aud
it I ever get out of detention it
will be a surprise to me about
the size of an elephant.
1 have not told you how we
pass the time aud will try to do'
so now. The tirst tiling we-j
stand reveille at 5:45 a. m.. then ^
get our chow and pull out iuVf
drill at 7; get our chow at noon
and put in the afternoon sol
dieriug; come in and stand re-
treat at 6 p. jin. then eat our
chovv again and [from then on
things vary greatly: some play
ball, some box and wrestle
some play soldier and put on
some tunny drills; some* have
some kind of music or whistle
with which ihey are successful
in making some kind of noise
while some jig to the so called
music. Another inay be ex
plaining to a flock
some |inistakes tlie Non-coms,
made during the day. Here and
there you can see one sitting
out in the cool of the evening
reading a letter over and over
again as if he were going to
read it till oil the black comes
off of the white. You walk up
to another group and hear one
telling whose fault it was he
happened in the awkward squad
today and how innocent lie,
himself, was—which, of course,
is always the case.
The Y. M. C. A. lias estab-
lished a branch in 1 vacant
mess hall near our street as a
special favor to us while we are
in detention and it is there that
I am writing this This is open
to write until 9:30 p tn. Those
who are not here writing pull
in at dark aud tell stories of all
kinds and sizes, descriptions
aud colors. When the ta toos
sounds all lights must be out
and all loud talk and noisy at
an end. There are always two
or more good talkers to one tent
and the conversation is then
carried on for some time in an
undertone. It usually happens
that the point of disagreement
is reached and the voices grow
louder and the listeners laugh
and chuckle with great interest
j and pleasure; the same thing
| happens all along the street;
soon it sounds from some dis-

The fourth is a Cagen from off

in Louisiana. . He is the jack of
all arguments. Not being able
to speak clear American, we,
have lots of fun out ot him.
He can make himself under-

most about rice farming and

rest of us know anything about
that part of the game.
