Mr. Gus Armstrong, Frisco., Okla.
Dear Friend:—I received your letter about the sad and yet heroic death of your brother.
'His company (Co. B) went into the front line on Oct. 4 and at 5:45 o’clock a. rn. Oct. S. Co. B went over the top.
Private First Class Huey C. Armstrong showed great spirit and willingness to do his duty to his home and flag. He went into the battle without a second’s hesitation and not a sign of fear showed in his face or action. Upon his face could be seen an expression of determination, just as though he was saying, ’’My counts, I give to you my heart and soul,” and at 8:45 a. rn. he did even more. he gave the supreme sacrifice off his life.
His body now’ lies in just the same spot on which he fell. Not any man has ever been buried in a grave more honorable than that of a soldier on the field of battle. He was killed Instantly by a rifle bullet.
Accept my sympathy in your days of sadness and console yourself with the fact that^he died a hero and that it was by his many others’ efforts that Germany was crushed and our homes and country forever be freed from the crushing foot of the Hun.
Very sincerely yours, TULLY B. LUCAS, Capt. 141st Inf. Home Address, McKinney, Texas.______

ONLY ONE MORE LIBERTY
LOAN DRIVE, SAY'S GLASS
Washington. Jan. 19.—Only one more big war loan drive is planned by the Treasury Department, Secretary Glass said today. It will be the Victory Liberty loan to be floated the last three weeks in April. The amount will not be more than $6,G00- ! 000,000, and may be $5,000,000,000.!
T expect the Victory Liberty loan i
to be the last intensive campaign for the sale of government bonds,” said Mr. Glass. ”Reports that there would be two more bond issues this year ag-giegating $12,000,000,000 are entirely without foundation, not only as to amount, but also as regards the number of campaigns.”

Instruments actually recorded 12,638. Chattel mortgages filed 14,570. All of this work has been done by the County Clerk and three deputies. In this office, the Recording Department has been under the supervision of the chief deputy who has had one assistant, therefore, only two persons have delivered the goods. It takes one person to care for tne nnancial end of the office, here .and one to wait up on the public.
