ed between the President of
the United State and the
German government. Subject
to the qualifications which
follow, they declare their willing
ness Xo make peace with he gov
ernment of Germany on the terms
of peace laid down in the Presi
dent's address to Congress on
January, 1918, and the principles
of settlement enunciated in his
subsequent addresses. They must
point out, however, that clause
two relating to what is usually
described as the freedom of the
seas, is open to various inter
pretations, some of which they
could not accept. They must,
freedom on this subject when

complete freedom on this subject
when they enter the peace con
"Further, in the conditions of
peace laid down in his address to
Congress of January 8, 1918, the
President declared that invaded
territories must be restored as
well as evacuated and freed, the
Allied governments feel no doubt
ought to be allowed to exist as t
what this provision implies. By
it they understand that compen
sation will be made by Germany
for all damage done to the civi
lian population of the Allies and
their property by. the aggression
of Germany by land, by sea and
from the air."
I am instructed by the Presi
dent to say that ho is in agree
ment with the interpretation set
forth in the last paragraph of
the memorandum above quoted.
I am further instructed, by the
President to request you to notify
the German government that
Marshal Foch has been author
rized by the government of the
United States and the Allied gov

German government and to com

Notes of Harrisburg Soldiers
Following are interesting extracts
' front recent letters of Harold As
trtch of the Motor Supply service
!to his mother and sister in this
j "Bob Fohl was here yesterday and
stayed with us over night. It was
j the first time we met qn this side,
i He looks just the same as ever.
"Gee, those poor soldiers must
I have It tough now. Just hold up
j your hand and be taken along ip
;an auto. I wish I were one of those
! soldiers.
"I believe we will soon see the
I end of the war, for the Allies are
i driving from all parts and doing i
great work. Fritz is pretty near
•flnisse' as they say here. While we
anxiously await the arrival of papers
here, we haven't cotne to the point
of preferring anything to eating.
That is the most important part of
the day.
"John Rausch from the Ammunl
! tion Train is camping with us as i
j he must draw rations for his organ- i
I ization every day, so he just goes
| along with the truck from here.
"We are Just the same old bunch
j here, always 'ribbing' each other
j and 'raising Cain' to keep up the
spirits. We are all in the best of
, health am. are eager to finish up
I this Job. Don't you worry one mite
about us for wo will soon cftnie
| marching home as safe and sound
ias when we left. Must close and
1 make use of the best 'Uncle Sam'
j gave us, namely the six pieces of
| finest aluminum ware; one knife,
| one fork, one spoon, one cup, one
; 'mess' kit (two pieces)." •
"I heard from both of you yester
day, so was pretty well pleased.
Then besides, 1 had a nice warm
bath in a town near here where all
our boys are ullowed to go. It has
become quite cold here now, so a
warm bath is a luxury even thou It
is only three little streams about I
as big as a piece of twine. Felt
fine afterwards and have plenty of
blankets, so was not the least bit
"Dan Gurnett is in here writing
home too, so his mother should
hear from hint at the same time.
"Thff clippings you send are al
ways put on the otflce desk and the
j boys all read them. They are
mighty Interesting.
"I ant sorry we are not in Ilar
rlsburg to enjoy the privileges and
entertainment of the Hostess house.
Sounds mighty fine to nte.
"Oije of our boys brought back
a wounded comrade on his back,
stopped *at the Y. M. C. A. and re
turned eating a piece of chocolate,
running as hard as he could to get
up to the front again. That is
real spirit, and ho comes from Car
"I have not seen Capt. Stackpole
as yet, but have heard reports of
him several times. They say he is
very daring and wonderfully cour
ageous in action, and his men would
do anything for him."
"You know It is a treat for the
whole company when any one re
ceives snap-shots, scraps from tlje
papers or a letter which makes some
nice reference to the boys.
"Today is my birthday and it sure
was a typical rainy day which
seems to be clearing now, but it
will probably rain towards evening.
I have a whole bunch of cigars,
smoking tobacco and a few cigar
ettes on hand, which is unusual and
mighty comforting."
"Well, wo are camped in barracks
now, evidently for a rest period;
but for how long we do not know
as our trucks are still at work but
not exactly at the front as we had
"At present I am writing In a
Y. If, C. A. hut which is also a
'foyer de soldat' but there are only
our boys in it. They are playing
a piano anu singing; Just having a
rare good tfhie. We all feel quite
confident that the war will be over
and we will all be home before long.
Every day we hear some good news
about the war and It will e\entua!ly
lead to the end of It.
"I had a letter from Frank Peters
which was written from this side.
I My letter to htm had crossed the
water both ways, but arrived safely.
Frank is in a nice service over here
and is well. We are both watching
and hoping to meet soon."
"I am having a hard time trying
to concentrate my mind on writing
while the crowd is singing and play
ing. On my birthday an American
girl and three soldiers entertained
our train for a little while in the
evening. The girl and one fellow
sang and danced, another played the
piano and the other played a violin.
They must have been here just for
my birthday as it was the jnly one
of the kind we have had .jver here.
Then later we made fudge in our
tent (a piece of canvass stretched
over a couple of boughs) on a
crudely constructed stove, which we
had to heat our tent. We ate fudge
while 'Jerry's' airplanes were flying
overhead. It was one of the Inci
dents of army life which I will never
forget. At any rate, I had quite a
happy birthday even tho we were
'Somewhere in France' near the
"Yesterday we passed thru a
former battle ground which was the
most weird looking 'No man's
land' that I have ever seen. All
the trees and fields, villages and
telegraph poles were completely de
stroyed. Great, huge 'dug-outs'
were standing Just as they had been
evacuated by the 'Huns', also many
huts built out of green timber, and
little rustic bridges and fences.
Austrian Armistice
Cuts Off German Oil
Washington, Nov. 6.—One effect
of the elimination of Austria from
the war, the fuel administration an
nounces, will be the cutting off of
Germany's supplies of fuel oil and
Germany has been obtaining fuel
oil and gasoline from Galatia and
Rumania, and was planning to Im
port extensively from the Caucus,
but under the terms of the Aurtrlan
armistice all traffic between Ger
many and her former ally must stop.
Within the v German borders there
are no supplies of fuel oil, and Infor

using benzol, a derivative of coal tar,
for lubricating oil. This latter source,

Thero were miles and miles of
trenches and barbed wire entangle
ments. There were many dug-outs
built with solid concrete right In
rock, and had windows and steel
doors. The trenches were built
right under roads with concrete and
were wonderful. The roads fre
quently had a perfect screen of
camouflage. Forests were com
pletely burned out leaving only a
bare tree trur\k here and there. No
inhabitants were to be seen in the
villages, only houses and churches,
public buildings knocked away so
that only the walls or parts of the
walls were left standing. The
only cheerful thing we saw was a
big German prisoner stockade."
Many times 1 have seen a peas
ant family returning to their home
with all their possessions on a curt
or two, cows, chickens, dogs, cats
and all, only to find their homo look
ing more Itko a huge pile of debris
than anything else. It is sights like
these which make the blood of
Young America boil and which is
bringing victory to the Allies. The
Germans do not lack ingenuity but
they are not in the right, and even
though they might surpass the Al
lies in warfare, they will never again
know of victory for them. The co
operation, force and power of our
combined troops are gradually and
effectively moving them back and
closing around them. We are con
fident of victory, but we have to take
time, for it is a big job which must
be done thoroughly and we'll do it.
The American spirit scents to ef
fervesce everywhere. Our troops
literally cover all of France as well
as parts of Belgium and Italy and
I believe in Russia too.
Anywhere you can hear them
"raising Cain." Their spirit is won
derful and the morale equally as
good. Each man has his individual
duty, from the coast to the front, as
well as our troops at home, and the
sailors on the sea, and each one can
be depended upon to do his part.
This is why we are progressing.

MOTHERS! Clean the clogged-up places. Do away with the
bile, sour fermentations and constipation poison which is keeping your
little one cross, feverish and sick. Children love Cascarets, because,
to them it is like eating candy. Cascarets act better than castor oil,
calomel or pills on the tender stomach, liver and bowels. Cascarets
never gripe, never injure, and do not disappoint the worried mother.
Give harmless Cascarets to children one year old and upwards.
