Joubert's NEIGHBOR HANS As proof of the almost unbelievable perversity of character which marks the German officials and othcers, Wilfred A. Joubert offers the story of his experiences with a Junker-born neighbor in southern Mexico. The man was a university graduate of the military caste. His code of ethics, and his absolute disregard of the nigha of his neighbors, so nearly coincide with the sp.rit which caused the European calamities of the last three years, that the experience reads almost as a parable. Each 10 cents ; $5.00 per hundred.

Another Tribute to the Latest Atlantic War Book Many Atlantic readers are enjoying Porter's SHOCK AT THE FRONT, with its vivid pictures of life in and behind the trenches, its stories of humor and pathos, and its remarkable descriptions of a country at war. The following letter, recently received from a man in the United States service, expresses a soldier's appreciation of the book.

Dear Sir:.

I am a Signal Corps telegraph operator, stationed in the most desolate part of the United States....on the Texas. border, helping, I hope, to make the Big Bend Distriot safe for democracy, while waiting and praying for a chance to go across and handle messages con=-* cerning Fritzes in place of the eternal.grind. of reports and bullet ins... about Villistas and Carranzistas. When not telegraphing I am usually reading, and when the Red Cross or the Y.M.C.A. affords the opportunity I read The-At-lantic Monthly. The last..copy... I have had the chance toperuse happened to be the December, 1917 number, and in it I ran across

Shock at the Front" by William Townsend Porter. I dont know that I have ever read a more interesting and lively account of life at the front; I was deeply enough impressed with the personality of the author to slip this message blank into the "mill" and write to ask you whether he has published any more articles of the kind, and where I could get... them if he has 80 favored the public

In the "Contributor's Column" of the number of the Atlant ic in question you make the remark that "Though the reader would never guess it, this is the first time that Dr. Porter, has written an article for an audience other than a professional one. I should say a reader would not guess it..... Why the style is charming. There are passages that rim like poetry, and the most attractive current of humor contrasting and relieving the trag lo spots.

Pardon this enthusiasm, but it is the only outlet I have for any feeling of appreoiation engendered by my reading. I will not consume more of your time, but if your office boy or twelfth subassistant... has a few moments on its fgender uno ertain these days). hands, and can tell me a little something more about Dr Wm. T. Porter, I should appreciate it. In the meant i me, while waiting for a possible answer and another...stray copy of "The Atlantic", I remain,
