Interesting Letter From An
Eagle Valley Boy
Vallejo, Calif., Aug. 12, '17.
Dear Friends- t certainly is
good to hear from you and about
the other buys, for if there is
anything a noldler likes it is to
get a letter from his home town.
Although there are over 5,000
marines an i a'inosia3 many sail
ors on this island, there is but
one fellow I knew before coming
here; Val Herring is his name, he
used to work for Wyatt. When
we get together we sure have a
great old time talking over the
good times wc had in Eagle. I
have not seen for two weeks as
ho had the luck to get the measles
and has been in the hospital un
Ihjs worrfing for Uncle Sam is
some snap. Wo Sleep until six
o'clock, then reveijle sounds and
we have about time to get dressed
when the sergeant yells "fall in"
and we have 30 minutes of Swed
ish exercise on doubleime, after
Chich we wash, make up our
bunks andsweep put thp barracks.
Then it is "fall jn'l again for
"chow," but nobody objects to
that call even 'though we get just
beans, bread, butter and coffee
for breakfast three (jays out of
the week, the rest of the time we
get potatoes, mulligan stew and
hot dog once in a while corn
starch pudding, and pie on Sun
day. I have.no.kick on the chow
but can't help but fill up once a
week .when we get liberty to go
During the day wo have four
drill periods of one hour each in
squad and company formation,
learning how to march and handle
our guns; the rest of the time is
our own which we put in at the
gym, playing ball, reading, or
scrubbing our clothes a job most
of us hate, but it has to be done
four times a week. We also have
a picture show every night which
is free to everybody.
1 was on the rifle range last
week and will be there next week
learning to shoot. That will end
my training here and I hope to be
on my way to Franco soon; but
we never know when or where
wo will go.
I see by tho papers sev
oral are trying to get by
the draft; well, they ought 11
to be treated as the Belgians were
and maybe they would then want
to fight. I think anyone who will
do no more for his country in time
of need than stand up when the
Star Spangled Banner is played
or cheer as the flag goes by, is
not a true American. Yod will
not find that kind of men' in the
marines, for all hero want to go
to Franco on tho next boat. So
if you want to fight, join the' ma
rines, but wo would advise no one
to conio hero on a vacation.
I could tfcll you a lot about this
place wore" I permitted to" do so.
Our letter must pass the censor

Having taken charge pf the
Frank Clarke confectionery store
I desire to say that it is my ex
pectation to make the store the
center of attraction for every
resident of Eagle Vallty. Raving
had many years experience as a
candy maker, J will shortly have
on sale a line of candies of my
own manufacture, and will at all
times have fresh goods. At the
fountain you will find soft drinks
of all descriptions and ice cream,
served in proper manner.
A complete stock of lunch
goods, coffee and tea, will be
carried, also cigars, cigarettes,
tobacco, pipes, etc.
Having come to Richland to
make the place my future home,
I would be pleased to have you
call and get acquainted, assuring
you courteous treatment and hon
est prices, and respectfully solicit
(ad) J. V. SELDERS.
A number cf the Pythian Sis
ters met at their hall on Tuesday
evening and by a well laid plan
succeeded in petting Mrs. Ivy M.
Clarke and her husband to drop
in at about 8:30. The affair was
injthe way of a farewell reception
to Mrs. Clarke, who is M. E. C.
of the local lodge, and she was
presented with an appropriate
memento of the occasion. Cake
and punch were served and the
evening was most enjoyably
spent. Mr. and Mrs. Clarke will
soon leave for P6rtland.
The navy offers a splendid op
portunity to the young man wish

trade. Write1 to the U. S N.
