Mrs. Ruth Stafghtof Dnkerro.
contly received tho letter below
from her son Sergeant M. Eylar'
Stalght, who is in tho 18th Co.,
6th Rent., U. S. Marino Corps,
and who has been in Franco for
soveral montliB. Lieut. Fraser,
who censored tho letter, inclosed
tho following message: "I led
your son 'over the top' twice and
found him an American worthy
of our highest traditions. I have
recommended him for his hero
ism." The letter reads;
Dear Mother: I took my shoes
and legging off iast night for the
first time sinco May 20th, and I
alsp ato my flrat warm meal dur
ing tho same time. I came
through without a scratch and
would not take a million dollars
for my experience; on the other
hand, I would not go through it
again for anything. The papers
probably tell all about it, but I
don'c suppose tho Marines will be
mentioned; the Army generally
gets the credit. But we'll get
what's coming to us some day.
I have a dandy collection of Ger
man souvenirs, tut suppose I will
have to throw them aWay, as I
can't carry them with me very
far. I took them from German
soldiers myself and sure would
like to keep .theni; ' '
On all their belts the Germans
wear big brass buckles with
crowns engraved on them and the
words 'Gott Mit Una' qr 'pod Is
With Us.' They are well equip
ped but will fight only while they
have the best of it; when wo get
up close to them, they quit and
shout 'Comrad,' but they don't
figure that wo have advanced
through their machine gun fire to
get to them.
One machine gunner, xa young
follow, showed us a bottle o
opium and told us that they made
him ubo it to give him nerve to
stick with his gun. We have
found lots of it in their dugouts
ba-'k of the firing ljne.
Some of our prisoners wo put
to work carrying ammunition and
picking up our wounded. They
were sure glad to do it and seem
ed tickled to death to be captured.
I am now quartered in a French
village, billeted in a dandy French
house, have a fine bed, and wo do
some cooking over a fire place.
We are having a good rest and
Some of us have been recom
mended for a 'Croix do guerre.
I merely mention this becnusoyou
and father both spoke in' your
letters of me doing my duty, and
I want you to know that I have

Leo Chamberlan, another of
our boys- in tho Marir.e Corps,
in a letter written "At Sea" and
dated Juno 8, among other things
"I have becri in service a year
now and that was about as lopg
as I expected tho war to last when
1 enlisted, but it lootys pow like
we were just getting a good start
in the game. Six, months of my
first year has been aboard ship
and you can take it, from me I
would rather be a landlubber any
old time than a sailor, for we see
too much water to suit mo. We
have traveled something over
12,000 miles sinco leaving San
Diego. Of course we have seen
several foreign ports, but they
all Iook alike to mo now and there
is but one more port that I want
to see and that is in the U. S. A.
After we left San Diego we
went to Central America where
we made a couple pf stops, one
of them was for 10 days, during
which time we were not allowed
to go ashore and saw nobody ex
cept a few natives who came out
in their little sail boats to sell us
oranges and bananas, Then we
went to Panama where the peopfe
arc mostly niggersand live just
about like a bunch tof pigs, so it
didn't take me long to see all of
Panama I wanted to. .We stayed
there but a couple of days and on
February 6th went through the
canal and stopped at Colon on the
Atlantic side where we coaled
ship and on the eighth of Febru
ary put out to sea again, The
second day out we hit some rough
water which made a third of the
crew seasick 4and about all us
landlubbers did for the next three
days was to hang our heads over
the life line amd feed the fishes.
On the 18th of February we
crossed the equator and it was so
hot there that I thought I was
getting pretty close to the bad
place, but since then we have
seen some cold weather. I can't
tell you the other places we have
been now, for we are not allowed
to mention any place we have
been later than three months ago.
It is getting about time forsup
per, so I will have to quit and set
the tables and feed these hungry
Marines, for I am a mess cook
now. My partner and I have 26
men to wait tables for and wash
dishes after, 'and that is all wo
do except our regular gun tirill.
We are making 18 knot3 an
hour now and the old ship shakes
like a freight train."
To Be Called in August.
One hundred and eleven young
men of Baker county who regis
tered last month for tho draft,
will bo called for service next
month. Those from Eaglo Valley
are Alfred Bluhm, Paul Wagner,
Harry Mason, Russe'l Mitchell,
Donald Sullivan, Julius Frahm
and Mark Blue.

Somewhere in England.

Dear Folks: Am making if all
right; it isn't a pleasure trip and
could be worse'. It rai'ps nearly
every day here so they don't have
to irrigate this land at all. The
crops'don't look like the crops at
home; the soil isn't so gpod either.
They have some nice horses here
in England. The people's ways
are very different from .ours.
We are tvith a lot pf English
soldiers jn this camp, learning to
repair air-Ships of the English
type and to keep them in flying
condition for the training flyers
on the field. Will be here some
time I think.
I wish you would go after

him to send it if hp is going to,

Sparta Land To Be Irrigated
A mass meeting of the ' resi
dents of the Sparta district was
held at the Sparta school housja
on Tuesday evening, to perfect
plans for an irrigation project.
Mr. Powers, of the State Water
Board, and Cpunty Agenp Tweed
went over the ground Tuesday
and attended the meeting.
It is propose ! to enlarge the
Sparta Ditch so as to carry the
spring freshet water of Main
Eagle, which will be sufficient to
irrigate several hundred acres of
land until the middle of June at
least, thus insuring a grain crop.
Fully 90 per cent of the land
owners and homesteaders who
will be able to secure the water
have signed up and' the scheme
is bound to go through.
25,000 Women Wanted
Because the nation's reserve
has been depleted by the calling
of thousands of graduate nurses
for service in military and naval
hospitals, it is absolutely necess
ary to call 25,000 student nurses
for training in American hos
pitals. The call is for women between
the ages of 19 and 35, of good
education and sound health. The
enrollment will begin July 29th.
Registrants will be called to en
ter schools for two to three years
training. Student gets her board
and lodging, tuition fee and a
small enumeration to cover the
co3t of books and uniforms; after
graduation she has an earning
capacity ot irom ijsiuu to $uu per
month and board.
We are in receipt of some large
ripe tomatoes from the M. D.
Simonis ranch at New Bridge.
We believe these to be the first
ripe tomatoes of the season in
Eagle' Valley ',. ,.
