Booked for Germany. Carbon County lad writes brother he is bound for Berlin. On the eve of his departure from England for France, Private Coral Marsh of the American Expeditionary Forces, writes his brother Lloyd Marsh of Roberts, he will soon be in Germany and will make Berlin part of his engagement in that country. A few extracts from the letter are typical of the unquenchable spirit of the American Army. “Everyone seems pleased and it’s perfectly agreeable with me and will be a change of scenery anyhow. I have to travel so much a place soon gets stale and I want to move. We will move into Germany. I don’t know for sure but I think Berlin. We are figuring on showing in principal cities only. ‘Tis bad traveling in those parts in winter months and for a wagon show it’s hard to have the parade exactly on time everyday. We figure the “clown prince” will be the biggest attraction and we’re going to feature him daily. “Old Hundy” has stretched a line across the border and has declared “no admittance” but we are booked for there this season and, by gosh, we’re going to show.”

Buck Attacks Fromberg Girl
A deer attacked Mr. Eva Holwegner and her granddaughter in the yard at the John Horst, Jr. ranch home last Saturday afternoon. The Sheriff and Game Warden were called to handle the situation. Sheriff Otto S. Ford said the animal charged the girl, slightly injuring her and the grandmother intervened. The sheriff kept the animal away until the Warden came and killed it.
