Prance, October 1, 1918.
My dear wife:
i After several daya of strenuous
' work I am able to write you a few
I lines to let you know I am still alive

The one thing I was disappointed
In was that It was hard to get close
enough to a "Boche " to have a good
look ut him. They would run before
we were anywhere near them. Some
would stay with their mai hine guns

few. As far as using a bayonet, 1

In one place, the first day over the
top, we were advancing across a
broken field covered with barbed
wire and trenches taking one ma
chine gun after another until we ar
rived at what looked to bo a strong
point. The boys watched every move
tbe enetry might make. Some one in
tbe bunch yelled "There goes a
Boche". He was a good long ways
off when the boys opened up on him
and stopped him from getting away.
Several of tbe Boches tried the same
stunt with the same results. We could
see some dugouts in a ravine and
were doing some planning as how to
approach them when a white flug
appeared on the scene and a big
German stepped out ot the dugout
and twenty more followed In single
file. One of them a young fellow
about twenty tried to sneak away
though the underbrush I raised my
gun to stop blm and he sure did beg
for mercy. He just lost his nerve

was more than he could stand. The
bunch was surrounded and searched,

ELECTION RESULTS IN
MIXTURE OF POLITICS
Republicans Cary State, Lower
House of Congress; Democrats
Control Senate. Two Contests
in County With Close Finishes
The result of the general election
held last Tuesday resulted in a vic
tory for the republican candidates in
this state. It also appears that the
democrats have lost tbe National
congress but have a majority in the
U. 8. Senate.
In this county the only contests
were between Sheriff Goodman and
A. K. Richardson for that off'.oa
which resulted in Cocdman being
re-elected; and between A. I. John
sou and Jap McKlnnon for county
commissioner, the latter being suc
cessful. In some of tbe precincts
there was no election held. The vote
as canvassed this morning shews:
