The soldiers home, or rather the bachelor’s roost, a retreat for the aged and lonely, located at Chili, is the scene of daily conflicts between the warring elements, and discolored eyes and a broken nose is considered nothing more than a common occurrence.

The question now is how can we get more news and save ourselves from total destruction? The newly enacted law reads, "thou must send more news regardless of consequences, for behold 4 pages must be filled every week." If one was a mind reader or a wizard the task might not be such a difficult one, but as an old woman once said, "It is as it is, but not as it ought to be." When talking with a friend or neighbor as long as the subject is about a good cow, the price of hay or veal calves, you have an attentive listener, but just as soon as you dare to breathe the word news, the best policy is to get over the fence as rapidly as possible, and if on escapes with northing more serious than a few broken slats and a black eye he may consider himself lucky, for the danger of getting killed outright is great.
