. The boys from Gilliam county
who Are in France are deeply in
terested in things at home. They
want to know all that is doing.
Relati ves cannot write them all
these ihings but they can clfp
items from the home paper and
send them over in a letter. Al
though the Globe is gent every
week to all the boys in France
whose addresses have been se
cured, a newspaper may go astray
or the address become obliterat
ed. There are such accumula
tions of newspapers that it i
sometimes weeks before the bojs
get their papers. The Globe will
continue to be sent, and many of
the ttoys are getting it, but we
suggest that' people writing jto
any of the boys insert cuppings
in their letters. It is the home
paper, next to the letter from
home, which brings the greatest
comfort to the boys. !

The chautauqua has become an
annual event in Condon and jap
such is being looked forward to.
One or two people have said that
this year, with our country rat
war, the chautauqua should jbe
discontinued. That is a mistaken
idea. People who believe that
way should read President Wil
son's letter on another page. The
chautauqua is a builder of patriot'
ism and, by the request of (he
government, will be more so this
year. The people want it and if
it doesn't come to' Condon mtiny
people will go from this town to
attend at some other place. Last
year every ticket was sold, more
than enough in fact, and almost
the required number have been
signed for this year. If any man
