Dear Mother and All:
Will drop you a few lines tonight
to let you know I am well. I hope
you are all well, as we hear of so
much sickness over there. I often
wonder if any of you folks are sick.
I received your letter today of Dec.
29. Was 'sure glad to hear from
you. Well at present things look
pretty good toward starting Ltme.
We might start home about the 1st
of February. I hope so tor I cm
pretty anxious to get home. We are
still at Kyllburg. It is not a bad
place about the size of Plattsmouth,
a little larger I guess. I am stay
ing with a private family here. Oar
company is scattered all over town.
I guess I have as nice a place though
as any of them. " I have a feather

here in my room, plenty of German
records, and a good heating stove,
and everything is kept just as neat
as a pin. They won't even allow
rue to build the lire in the stove.
1'hey wait on me like I was the
honorable guest. And the best part
of all, at the end of the week or
month there ain't no landlady
around going to throw me out for
not paying the rent, for they won't
accept a cent for the room. Well

fine, that is there is no complain
ing. We have the very best of eats
and plenty of it. Of ccurse I could
tell you a lot of news about things
that happened at the front, either
the St. Mihiel or the Verdun. I
could tell you things( that would
make you feel sad or I could tell
you things thai would make you feel
glad or I could tell you something
that you could laugh about. And
again I could tell you things that
would make you wonder why there
wasn't more of the boys killed than
there were. I could tell about some
of the nights. I slept in shell holes,
or right out in the mud and rain. I
could tell of some of the long weeks
under shell fire, when every min
ute might have been my last; what
is the use trying to write it all,
when I get home I'll tell you all
about it, that way I can make a
long letter short and still tell you
all the late news. I 'am looking for
the news that we are going to start
home, but 'I guess that news will
never come. I'd ljke to get back to
South Dakota by spring, but the
chances are. beginning to look slim.

TELLS OF BATTLES IN WHICH
HE PARTICIPATED GER
MANS NOT STARVING
WAS IN MUCH HARD FIGHTING
Sas Report Current They are Going
to Get a Furlough Wants to
Go to Coblenz on Rhine.
From Thursday's Dally.
The following letter has been re
ceived from Robert Will, who is now
in Germany, and but a short dis
tance from the Rhine river, where
he is doing duty with the Army of
Occupation, after a long siege of hard
fighting with the A. E. F., in which
he barely escaped injury several dif
ferent time. It is Robert's greatest
desire to be privileged to visit the
city of Coblenz, on the Rhine, and to
get a good look at this great Ger
man stream before he returns to the
states, but if they told him he might
sail for home tomorrow, we bet dol
lars to doughnuts that he'd forget a!l
about his ambition to take a sail on
the Rhine. His letter, written to
his mother. Mrs. A. S. Will, of this
city, follows: "
Ringer, Germany. Jan. 1C.
Having a little time this morning.
I am writing you a letter to tell you
I am still feeling fine and hope this
finds you likewise. We are staying
five in a small room, but with plenty
of heat and light.
We certainly have had fine weath
er here since we landed. It has hard
ly been cold enough to freeze the
ground. I hope it remains warm,
for doing guard duty on a cold night
is not just to the liking of most of

lenz. which is on the Rhine, and is
about fifty Kilos, or thirty miles to
the east of us. I hope the leave of
absence is allowed, for I would like
to see the city and take a sail up the
Rhine. Our largest town clos-e here
is Ahsweuler, and it is here we go
when not on duty.
Bv the looks of things, I think we
will be home by 1920 if nothing tlse
turns up. , We had thought that we
would be among the first to return,
but those who fought so hard in the
S. O. S. near Paris, and who are all
run down, were decreed to be the
ones needing the rest more than we,
and so have been ordered back first.
Say, by the way the papers talk.
one would think tne uermans are
starving, but from what I have seem
thev are not so bad off, although I
will admit they have poor bread. Let
them eat it a few years though, and
maybe they won't be so anxious for
another war. They raise lots of
wheat, potatoes and sugar beets and
everv barn is full of cows, while the
yards are filled with chickens, so
they cannot be so badly off as they
pretend To be.
Here is a brief account of where
we have been from July 1st until the
11th of November, the day the armis
tice was signed: Landed July 1st
at Liverpool, England, and from
there went to South Hampton, leav
ing there July 4th on our trip across
the English channel. We landed at
Lallarve, France, where we remain
ed but a few days, and then went by
rail to the Champagne front, where
I joined the 149th Field Artillery,
42nd Division, and was there in the
critical fighting from July 14th to
July 18th, and had the honor of be
ing with the only American Division
to fight in General Gomand's army,
where' we so gloriously obeyed his
orders, "V ewill stand or die," and
by our iron defense crushed the Ger
man assault, making possible the of
fensive of July 18th to the west of
Rheims. From Champagne we were
called to take part in exploiting the
success north of the Marne.
Fresh from the battle front before
Chalins, we were thrown against the
picked troops of the Germans. For
eight consecutive days we attacked
skillfully prepared positions, captur
ing great stores of arms and am
munition. We forced the crossing of the
Orucq. took hill 212. Sergy. Mency,
Femes and Scenes. We drove the
enemy, including the Impefial Guard
division, the depth of fifteen kilo
meters, and when our Infantry was
relieved we were in full pursuit of J
the retreating Germans.
So our Artillery continued to pro
gress and support another American
Infantry division in. the advance to
the Vesle. After being there for
some time 'another unit came along

continued Mr. Passage, "my mother

is the only medicine I have been able

with her and she was subject to fre

In a little, while after eating, hr
food would s-oiir and bloat her up
with gas and cause her to suffer for
hours. At time the gas would press
in her heart, almost cutting off hor
breath, and I actually thought she
wa going to die. She complained
of awful pains through her stomach
and left side and would belch up
sour gas for hours. I have often had
to get up in the middle of the night

gas, and I don't believe she ever got

I'roTn Saturday's Pai'iy.
There was a little alarm last
night of lire, which was supposed
to be at the apartment house, the
janitorhad built a little extra fire,
and as the rooms got warmed, the
radiators were closed down, and this
raised the steam in the boiler, and
the pop valve popped off, and with
the escaping steam one of the ten
ants turned in the fire alarm. When
the department responded there was
no lire to be found. Some excite
ment but no fire.
