Death of Soldier
Dean Lacy Writes
Preutrin, France, Nov. 20, 1018
I will drop you a line ato let you
know that. I am alright mb usual.
I am at a difTeront place from where
I was the lust time I wrote you, We
moved a day or two after I wrote.
There will be no use for you to try to
find this place on the map because it ie
too small a place, uuless you have a
map as large as Webster County.
p, We arrived here the evening of, Nov t
21st or that is the most of us got here
.We cauio by truck train two aero
squad rotiH and two photo sections.
Were Jill day on tlit; road.
This place Is situated about eight or
ten miles- from the l(Wmau border
just about" opposite tbesouthwest cor
ner of Luxemburg'. .We only expect
to stay here for a few days I guess
vre would have been awav from here
now if it hadnot started into raining
again, inow i guess we win stay until
the weather gets a littffe better.
From what I hear the next move we
make will be 'to a Oermiu aviation
field about live miles from the city of
Luxemburg, and from there to Co
logne, probably will not tuy in any
of those places, only a short time, after
that I think it will bo bauk to U. S. A.
We surely are seeing home of the
country now. The trip up here was
certainly gieat. We canto through
Verdun, pa-t Dead Mans Hill aud
drove for tulles through wheie possi
bly the hardest lighting of the war
took place. One cannot realize what a
desolate place Verdun and the country
around it is without seeing it with
ones own eyes.
Some of the principle places that I
have been in in France are Lo Havre,
the port we lauded at; I'urio, St. Max
nut, that is uoitheast of Bordeaux
Tours, C'olombey La Belle, that is ill
the eastern part of France and about
lifty miles southwest of Met. From
thero 4 wnvHoiiCMo a littlu village
about five miles from Baric Duo to join
the photo section I am now in. Wu"
there" until our move to this placo. I
received u letter from you tonight
that was written Sept. tilth. Have
had only one letter from you that was
written tiny time lately. How do you
like my (ionium stationery'.' Well
about all of us nro out of stationery
ai.d we just wtlte on any thing wo can
tlnil. Some of the fellows are using
enlarging paper, but I think by the
time It gets to the states somo one is
going to be out of luck reading what is
on one side of it. One can't buy a
single thing in these villages. The in
habitants arc almost all gone. 1 don't
think' there tire more than three or
four families living in this place now.
'I was in hopes that I would get
home in time for Xmas but I guess I
won't make it. However from what I
hear I don't believe it will be more
than six or eight woeks at the most
before wo are on our way homo.
Well I guess I bettor quit for tills
time as I must write another letter or
two tonight. Everyone goes to bed

Le Fontenay's Recital Proves
Ever since the first phonograph was made, music lovers
have looked forward to the day when this wonderful in
vention would be perfected when it would reproduce the
human voice with such exactness that the reproduction
would be just as real as the actual voice it reproduced.
