rejoicing that peace again relgna au-
preme over aU the earth. Teaterday
was the flrat Sunday tor fifty-two
montha that no sound of cannon waa
heard. It waa ao quiet that It waa
almost oppressive. One has no Idea
how their nerves are strung up^ here
until it had been finished. Now we
are going to lend every energy to get
things cleared up, repaired and re-
built enough to make thla country

You and your mother must come
over to nee us next Rummer. You
see we are a small family at best
and we should stick very close to-
gether. I am not anybody's angol
yet, but I am not quite as bad as I
was when we were all kids going to
school at Pleasant Hill. Jeremiah
Slayton was alive when I left home
and talked, looked and acted Just
like he did when boys used to Rteal
Ills chickens. Hope Hargrove has
not grown any yet just got gray hair
and a wrinkled face.
Write me a long letter when you
can. Don't think just because I am
an officer In the U. S. army that T
won't be glad to get it. I am Just
the same red headed boy of old. My
best wishes for your mother, your-

Joying the best of health.'
I know that you all have hoard

experiences of war life. I havo been
in battles from Sept. 1 to Nov. 11. ^

I am not, for what few we have left

I had a letter from Raymond on
Nov. 11 and he is somewhere in
France. I would like to meet him.
I also had a letter from Willie Mc-
Cormlck on that date. I saw Wll

My Dear Cousin Helen: Your very

strength is depleted ana the body
lacking in essential nourishment,
the nerves are the first to suffer.

few daya ago. Waa so glad to hear
from you again and to know that
you and your mother were well.
This is a strange circumstance un-
der which to be writing to the
daughter of one of my best loved re-
latives. In fact France is a strange
country, the people, the laws, cus-
toms and religion, such as they have
ars not kind the Americans are ac-
customed to. The American soldiers
are very popular with the French
girls, first because they spend so
much entertaining them and second
because they look so much better
than ths French soldiers. The en-
gineers regiments ars very large. I
have command of nearly 10,000 men,
more than a* brigade of Infantry or
Ths Americans have done wonder-
ful work here, ths Rainbow division
especially. It is considered ons of
ths best. If not ths best division in
ths whole allied army. I got out
without being seriously hurt.
When you go to see Aunt Helle
tell her I still remember her and
love her and that I would like to
have a dish of collards with some
corn bread and buttermilk like she
used to cook before nhe went to
Texas. Tell her I could eat the corn
bread now even If it did not have
salt in it and lots of other things
would be good now that were not
them. It is right expensive for an
officer to live over here, hut we buy
all we can from ths army quarter
master and that helps us some We
have chicken sometimes but a com-
mon hen Is $2, butter 1.50 a pound
and turkeys from $15 to $20 a piece.
I tried to buy a pheasant a few days
ago (not as large as a prairie chick-
en) and they wanted $i for it, so I
did not eat any pheasant.
We are all looking forward to the
time we can go home. Some want
to stay because they like the army
pay, but I don't care much for that
as I can make more at home. Don't
think Edward will get home for a
year or two as he has only been over
three months, and he belongs to the
79th field artillery, which is a reg-
ular army unit. My regiment Is also
regular army, but was mustered Into
service for the duration of the war
and as long thereafter as we were
needed to preserve peace, therefore
we should get out early next spring.
When we get home we will find
many faces missing. Five or six men
who were among my good friends
have died. A great many of my
younger friends who joined the army
will not be there. Some of them
have made the suRreme sacrifice that

Miss Vera Shook, Temple, Tex.
Dear Little 81s:
This leaves me all O K and I hope
It will find you all well again. Tell
mother I would have sent her a
Christmas present beforj I left the
United States, but I didn't have time.
I am sending you a coupon so that
you can send me a three pound
That Is all you can send, and If
you will I would like to have It in
cigarettes. That is one thing a sol-
dier can't get over hers and I am
Just dying for a few American cigar-
ettes. Three pounds isn't much but
It is & whole lot to a fellow who
can't get them.
Bis, this is one of the prettiest
countries I have seen in my route.
There surely are a lot of grapes rais-
ed over here and they make plenty
of wine. Tho French people are cer-
tainly glad to see the American sol-
diers come over here. They are
pretty hard to make understand
what you Bay and therefore, I don't
have much luck talking with the
girls. But maybe some day I will be
back In the II. S. A., where I can
understand the real language.
Well. I can't think of any more
to write, so I will close, hoping to
hear from you real suon. Tell moth-
er to write to me soon also.
Your loving brother.

Ixjndon, Dec. 17.—Some light on the
muddled political situation In Ger-
many may be gained by analysis of
the revolutionary forces now at work.
There are three distinct parties con-
testing for supremacy, the social
democrats, the Independent socialists
and the Spartacus or bolshevist group.
The socialist democrats are the old
Scheldman party. Throughout the
war they worked hand In hand with
the so called "middle class" non-so-
cialist parties. When the revolution
occurred they wished to continue this
co-operation and establish a coali-
tion government representing the old
relchstag coalition majority. They
may be called the "extreme right" or
conservative element of the revolu-
But owing to the opposition their
program encountered a compromise
was made with their chief rivals, the
Independent socialists, led by Hugo
Haase, George Ledebour and Carl
Kautsky. The independent suppose
co-oporatlon with non-socialists but
they have consented in their nfrreo-
ment with the social democrats to
establishment of a social state inde-
pendent upon a straight vote of the
majority of the people. Like the so-
cial democrats they are In favor of
constitutional proceedure. They may
be termed the "center" party.
The "extreme left" is the mysteri-
ous Spartacus group formed In the
fall of 1916. It gets Its name from
anonymous political letters signed
"Spartacus" which were sent out by
Carl Llebknecht for the political in-
formation of the radical element
among the social democrats. These
letters, first distributed in 1915 took
the form ft year later of an Illegal,
secretly published periodical bearing
the name "Spartacus." It announces
both the social democrats and the In-
dependent socialists. The aim of the
Spartacus group is to put an end to
the captalist system. Llebknecht and
Its other leaders are said to be try-
ing to bring about a dictatorship of
the proletariat by force of arms. The
group is the German equivalent of
the Russian bolshevlsts.
More or ^ess allied with the Spar-
tacists are the two other extremely
radical groups the "Internationale" and
the international socialists of Ger-
many." The "Internationale" named
after a publication whl^h the party
organizers tried to start In 1915, Is
led by Franz Mehrlng, a well known
publicist and by two women, both
orators and writers, Rosa Luxemburg
and Klara Zetkln. Julian Borchard
is believed to be the leader of the
secftlists of Gerntany"
