My dear mother:
Well mother I have been neglect
i rig to writ" to you fur hoiiio time
bo will try mid write a line.
J have seen some pretty excit
ing limes nine 1 hint wrote you,
We have been up on the front for
several days. We were between
the infantry mid artillery, fixing
np lb" mud no the artillery could
go ahead. We were camped upon
a litlia Lill and they kept shelling
it all the time. The shells were
flying about ua thick as liien in
July. 1 was with the wagons all
the time tending to t lie tools. We
were driving aloilg the road one
luornir.g when a mounted police
rode up and said you had bet lei
stop, that they were shelling the
roail jimt ahead of us, and while
we were. 8topped there, a shell
dropped in the road just, abend of
us and killed two horses and blew
a field kitchen all to pieces, lint
we caw lots of things like that
before we jeft. We drove them
buck about fifteen miles. Thev
haven't any infaalry at all hardly.
We only saw their infantry once.
They just had machine' guns anil
they can't hit anything with them
' Just once in a while a stray idiot.
In one little town that we captured
we ge two men that were chained
up in apple trees with machine
We dug us holes in the side of
the road a couplo of feet deep to
sleep in. One evening they got
to shelling us pretty heavy and
wegotin them and there was a
piece of shell that had exploded
cut the brush right ov:r my head.
It sure did sing. 1 thought it had
my name on it, but it never. They
threw dirt on us lots of times,
, We hud an aeroplane raid one
evening and they Were shooting
with machine guns and dropping
bombs. A couple of us jumped
and a bullet dropped right by the
side of us.
We captured some dug outs
where they worn getting ready to
have a meal. They had a couple
of big pots of sonic kind of stew
that was hot yet when we found
it, and a lot of nice, fresh cabbage
all ready to put on.
When I was reading your last
letter the shelU were sure living,
hut I didn't notice them at all
Well mother, ;vill have to rin

, ' Elruigans Soliloquy
Thoy's some that likes high fluten things,
With balls and dago opery bIiows, "
Them soriecs bright light cabarets,
Where swells and city slickers goes,
That cussed onery game of golf
Where women Btew and fuss
And fat men swing them little Fticks,
And sweat and growl and cuss.
I guess I ain't like city folks, ,
Some say I ain't as smart,
But I know a good old pastime
That's sure closen to my heart,
For I'd rather set upon a box,
In old Zeb Slocums' store;
With sharpened kpife and stick so soft,
And just whittle on the floor.
Folks say I'm powerful shiftless
And a counter jutnpin pest,
But I kin make as many shavins
As Hank and all the rest.
A chaw of Peerless big and sweet;
And middlin close the box, N
So's I kin hit it in the middle,
And spare my neighbors' socks.
When old Winter's sneaken up without
. And things is all fired chill,
I like to cuss them Bolsheveek,
' And dam tliit skunk old Kaiser Bill
It's most fun to talk about the war,
Them funny wagons in the air,
And low how I would knock them Boche
If I was young and over there,
Y'es and wrangle over little things
About the absent neighbor's jaw
And get some sleepy old coyote,
And swap him chaw for chaw,
U'b great to argue with the hoys,
To get 'em mad and all het up
And watch 'eni bristle up and snap,
Like Widder Doole's snarlin pup.
To talk on polelies is fun, though
Sometimes arguing in tiie wrong
It makes me feel so swaggering like
And lighten happy all day long.
You kin take tlieiu city pleasures,
With a hundred names or more,
But give uie a seat upon a box,
In old Zeb Slocum's store. I
