employed as a signal maintainer for the C. M. & St. P. Railway Co., but later accepted a position at Salt Lake City, Utah, with the Union Pacific Railway Co. He was employed at this place until the 10th of April, this year, when he enlisted with Co. E, 108 Regiment of Engineers. He was first sent to Jefferson Barracks Missouri. He remained at this place for some time and was then transferred to Washington, D. C., where for two months he had charge of a squad of carpenters and at the same time made good in the manuel of arms. Orders came for their removal to Camp Merritt, N. J., from where they departed for overseas June 10th. Alvin has been in the service overseas more than six months during which time he has seen a great deal of country and some very exciting experiences. The last letter received by his parents was under date of November 4th, and it is with a great deal of anxiety that the parents are waiting daily for some news from him.
