The whole island is a detention comp. You know I was detailed to canvass Frisco In the great drive for the Fourth Liberty Loan and then travelled all over Oakland for the same cause. The residents of both cities were very responsive and treated us like good fellows. Well, I have taken $200 In the fourth loan that will take me ten months to pay for and I have left about $4 a month for clothes, tobacco and things like that so you can [ see the good times I have cannot be very expensive. I will have to spend part of that for fare to shore and my pipe and tobacco. It does not seem possible it Is autumn here as it is Just as warm as summer. I think this is a bad climate for a person as they become fat and laay. I have gained 17 pounds since I enlisted and now weigh 132. I was on guard duty from midnight until 4 o'clock this morning and as the moon rose over the mountains it was far too beautiful for me to describe and I never saw such a scene before. First thing as I looked over I'lhe bay I noticed the hills all seemed I afire and I was awed by the beauty of it all. The moon shining on the hill country threw great flashes of soft golden light on the ripples of the bay, which reflected its rays on the dear old white tents which are my home and pride. We are used as guests and have entertainments every evening at the Y. M. C. A. and every Sunday we have church. Our chaplain, Mr. Carpenter, sure Is a nice man. I' love him as all the other boys do. One thing you cannot Imagine the grqiat excitement when a crowd of our Marines leave for France. This morning a ship load left Mare Island and came down by Goats Island. Say you could not imagine the cheering of the boys the other day when the news reached us of Bulgaria accepting our peace terms. White hats were flying or rather sailing all the way from 10 to 50 feet in the air. Imagine a snow storm with flakes as large as plates and you have the scene. But I can't describe the noise. But just imagine what a cheer will go up when Germany surrenders, oh boy! Here on the island we eat about 6o bushels of potatoes a day and we have seven days of good old navy chow. We live high and have boxing, wrestling and base ball games and the band plays every noon and some times in the evening." Executor's  Notice.

Germany up to seventy years ago was not in existence as i nation but was a federation of small pri^cipali-tiep Prussia, the nucleus of the German empire, was always quarrelsome, boastful of her military supremacy, crafty, cruel, and of doubtful diplomatic integrity. The South German principalities, although more or less Prussian in blood, were yet independent, and con stantly fighting with each other, jealous and striving for power over the othei. The famous federation of German states, which was believed at first by the people to be a true democratic federation, was fathered by Bismarck, the Iron chancellor. ' The trickery by which many of the German states were hoodwinked into this alliance was the direct cause of . the German revolution which was nipped in the bud through the already | marvelous perfection of the German militaristic machine, and in 1848 some 500,000 German revolutionists enU grated In the United States with the ' price of Prussia's disapproval on their heads. | Since that time Germany has been recognized as a formidable military power by all the world. The only war she had waged as a federated enipii-j up to I he present one was the Franco-Prusnian war in 1870 in which Ger many was markedly the victor, it was settled by indemlty and the annexation of Alsace-Lorraine. NEW FACTOR IN EDUCATION Article by ft. A. Welch, Iowa Superintendent Junior Red cross. Now and then there appears a new something for schools In content or method, which Is destined In time to revolutionize or re-shape the work therein. Such was the introductloii of the Kindergarten; such' was the advent of the vocational subjects; such was the teaching of music In the schools, and such many educators believe is the destiny of the Junior Red Cross, now so rapidly coming Into the elementary and secondary schools. The Junior Red Cross, as a national organization under the United States War Department, was formed slightly more than a year ago. � It was established as an auxiliary of the National American Red Cross. The purpose was primarily to create among the pupils in our public, private and parochial schools some of the spirit of service and sympathy emanating from the American Red Cross. This has already been done beyond all expectations. The Juniors have assisted in knitting, sewing, cooking, canning, gardening, purchasing thrift stamps, and In conservation. Pupils have been anxious, whenever enrolled as Junior Red Cross workers, to assist in any way possible. January 1st, 1918, there were in the United States barely one million pupils enrolled in Junior societies, but by July first, there were more than eight mllion pupils so enrolled. The interest in the organization Is growing rapidly. Ipwa is among the lead; Ing states in number of Junior auxiliaries, the record July 1st being 40.6 per cent of all her schools enrolled. All but nine counties of the state had reported organizations by August 15, Beveral counties having all schools organized. Teachers and others connected In any way with the schools see great educational advantage in having the schools affiliated with this strong national organization. Civics teaching and patriotic instruction are much more easily taught   to   the   pupils through the activities of Junior Auxiliaries and the spirit engendered In the work. All � pupils .become enthusiastic In assisting Unole Sam in any way suggested. \ In every tfouttty there Is a chapter soho6l cbininfttee, appointed by the local American Red Cross, to enroll schools as auxiliaries. A campaign is being put on by this committee to reach all the schools during tho drive, Schools may assist the committee by making known their desire to enroll to this committee, or to the County Superintendent. CAREFUL WORDS For Many a LeMars Household Who Will Heed Them. To have the pains and aches of a bad back removed-to be entirely free from annoying, dangerous urinary disorders, is enough to make any kidney sufferer grateful. The following advice of one who has suffered will prove helpful to hundreds of LeMars readers, ' Mrs. Henry Klemme, 4i9 Fifth St., LeMars, says: "My back had been bothering me for a long time and it hurt me worse' when I stooped or tried to Btralghten. Sharp twinges shot through my loins and my kidneys acted irregularly and annoyed me. I found Doan's Kidney Pills, which I got from Geo. W. Koenig's Drug Store, were what I needed. They made my back strong and well. If I ever have need of a kidney medicine again I will certainly get Doan's Kidney Pills." Price 60c, at all dealerB.
