George Rapp Writes Home
From Near Front Trenches
In a letter to his parents, Mr. and
Mrs Charles Rapp, 3612 South
Twenty-fifth street, George Rapp of
Company E, 117th Engineers, tells of
having received but one letter from
home, written last January. George
enlisted last November and in Janu
ary was over in France. He1 says the
men composing his company are
practically all from California and
the coast country, and they are kept
busy repairing roads, digging dugouts
and building wire entanglements.
George Rapp is well known jn local
amateur base ball circles, having been
a member of the fast Armour team.
He would be pleased to hear from
any who care to write and gives his
address as "Company E, 117th Engi
neers, A. E. F., via N. Y."
Mayor Smith Issues Two
Mayor Smith has issued a procla

that flags of the allies be displayed
along the lin of march of the parade
from the Union station up Tenth
street to Farnam and west on Far
nam to Eighteenth street.
He also issued a proclamation for
"Navy week," which is this week. He
appeals to young men to join the
navy in order that the navv quota
may be f iled. . - .
Our boys are distinguishing
themselves byi their cleanliness
and jovial spirits while at the
Front. They believe that " Clean
liness is next to Godliness."
It is an indisputable fact "that
people can keep healthy and well
in no better way than by keeping
their bodies clean, inside and out.
Many thousands of people are
killed every year by allowing
toxic poisons to accumulate
within the body, and then they
fall victims to fevers and all sorts
of maladies with special names.
The only way to keep thoroughly
well is to drink plenty of water
daily, bathe frequently, apd take
some good -laxative like ' Doctor
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Cleanse
the system inside as well as out
side. These pellets " of Doctor
Pierce's are made of May-a)ple,

beneficial if " Pellets " are taken
