are doing good work and seem to be
having a fine time. One of them went
over into the Boche lines five times

all. We aren't worried over here, so

any right to be. I know one French
division that dug holes and buried by
actual count 800 Boches that they had
relieved of their earthly burdens. They
captured and mussed up a lot more

losses for themselves in addition to
that. Cold blooded way to talk to you,

Whether you are picking cherries or reclining on the banks of the river
after the day's toil is over reading Browning, we can furnish you an appropriate
costume. Every conceivable style and color developed in twill, crep, basket
cloth, and mercerized pongee.
Another good point to remember-Rising at 4 A. M. is not conducive
to a long and extensive toilette. These middies and smocks have no buttons
to come off, or hooks and eyes to bother with.
The middies come in white and copenhagen blue twill. Some of the
white ones have blue collars.
