The great big hearted man that
he is. caused Louis Rothman. when
wounded in hat tie on the western
front, to endeavor to keep the fact
from the knowledge of his mother
in order to save the worry, did n-t
write home about the accident.
With studied phraseology, he said
that he had not been with tin? com
pany for some two weeks, when he
was in the hospital recovering from
the wound which has taken him
there. Later on. Dec. :.rd. he wrote
again, telling that he had not been
with the company for some six
weeks, and savins he was feeling
fine and thought That he would be
home in a short time, still endeavor
ing to keep the matter from his
mother, that she might not grieve.
This last letter was received a few
days since. But from other sources
has filtered through the news of
the wound, in which the fact of his
wounding comes out. The partner of
Louis, the man who occupied tlie
same hunk with him. and was his
chum, during their stay there wrote
to his brother-in-law. who lives at
O'Neill, where he is working in the
railroad shops, and as it happened
