England, also mailed you two postals before Mills, Long since leaving Camp Island, N. Y. Spent an unusually long time on ship, laid in the harbor of Halifax for one week before starting across for England. We unloaded near London where we took a train for South Hampton. After staying there a few days we crossed the English channel to Cherboinge, F'rance. Then from there by rail to this little town. This is about the only kind of writing paper they have here. There are many other articles you cannot buy. The people here- have their houses enclosed in a wall. Seems like they build a wall around it before they build a house. F'rancc is a beautiful country as well as England. A lot of the farming is still done in the old way; the farms look well kept. The French people are polite and try to make you comfortable. The F'rench language of course is about all I hear now and I am trying to learn to speak it. The streets in nearly all the small towns in F'rance are narrow and when passing through it seems like you are walking between two walls instead of between two rows of houses.

Dear Home Folks: We arrived safely at the docks on the Hudson, at Hoboken, N. J., will stay here tonight, tomorrow at six o'clock we will take a launch boat and cross the Hudson, then take a train for our new camp. This trip has been full of interest to me in fact the most interesting trip of my life. We came over the Alleghany mountain which was simply delightful. The dirt roads as well as the railroads through the mountains arc in first class condition, and the air was so fine that I believe I could live on it without anything else. If I had thought to have brought a jug I would have filled it with that good air and sent it to you, ha, hal And besides there were so many pretty mountain girls Some of them told me they were coming over to camp, Sunday.

Sffe loved the dear old songs of Zion, artd during her suffering she would repeat the old songs, such as "Jesus Lover of My Soul," and the last words she spoke, she sang one Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross," verse of "Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone." How glorious her going wasl How precious the christian's hope! O precious cross! O Glor ous crow's! O ressurrection day!

Engaged In Making Ammunition, Constructing Buildings, Paving Roads, Loading and Unloading Ships and Trains and In All the Thousand and One War Industries What the Yank la Doing for the Chinaman. By ELOISE ROBINSON. Since early In the war there have been numbers of Chinese with the French and British armies In Frunee not in the fighting line but In that army of laborers which enormous makes It possible to carry on the war. Nearly a hundred thousand of these are working with the British in northern Fruuce, and more than forty thousand more are scattered all over the country with the French. Now they are coming Into the American lines In large numbers. Most of these men come from northern and central China, and for the same reasons that many of our American boys came to France before the United States entered the war. Some of them were attracted by the high pay and the chance to better their owd condition, some of them out of pure love of adventure, still others because of their appreciation of what this struggle meaus in their own fu- No more loyal and conscientious group of workers can be found than the young women at the switchboard.

And there are, too, not a few Chinese scholars and men of some distinction in their own country who have been forced to leave for political reasons, as well as young students from Kngland or America. They are engaged In making ammunition, in the construction of buildings, In paving roads, in' loading and unloading ships and trains In all the thousand and one "war Industries" that have directly and Indirectly to do with the maintaining of the allied armies In Fruuce. Lack of Understanding. Merely for the sake of efficiency It Is of Importance that a feeling of mutual understanding und sympathy should exist between the Yank and the who has come to be his neighbor. Officials recognize Its military value and have met with appreciation the efforts of the Y. M. C. A., which is carrying on the work in most of the camps where Chinese are located. Most of the difficulties were due to lack of understanding. For Instance, a quiet, hard working Chinaman bad n some trouble with bis eyes and was ordered to the only place where he could have protection from the light, which happened to be the guiirdhouse. No doubt the Yank tried to explain to him on the way just why he was be ing sent there, but his efforts were not noticeably successful. All that Chlng Chinaman could comprehend, and all thnt bis friends could comprehend was that he was being shut up in the "Hoi Wu Tse" when he had committed no offense. Or, when the energetic doughboy wanted to hiisten along the deliberate coolie he would wave his arms wildly In the air and, with the Idiotic Instinct we all have to believe that the man who does not speak our language Is hard of hearing, yell ut the top of his lungs. "Come on, you fellows, let's go." Unfortunately, however, "go" In Chinese means dog, tne laborers supposed hey were being "bawled out" for some Inexplicable reason, and tl.ere might have been trouble hud not a "Y" secretary who had once been n missionary to China straightened things out. As It was, coolie and doughboy went off together with grins on their faces. Chinamen can appreciate a Joke, as well as Yanks, and u new word was added to their vocabtamries. Anxious to Learn. Some of the men have already picked up a considerable knowledge of French, and they are eager to learn English. Both American officers and enlisted men have volunteered to conduct classes In English. Beyond the Immediate benefit to the men themselves and their Increased efficiency to the urmy, there Is a larger benefit of this work with Chlng Chinaman. After the war he Is going home to the Interior of China to be looked up to by his friends and relatives and by the whole community as a man of information and Importance. He will be a leader In his village, and his word will carry weight. The engineers directing Chinese work will be among those to go to China to have a share In the great lndustrlul development which Is sure to come at the close of the war. I The chancellor smiled In the darkness. "Oood strategy, but I am an old soldier, majesty. What are they?" "First. I would like to have a dog; one to keep with me." "I probably that can be arranged." "Thank you. I do want a dog. And " he hesltnted. "Yes, majesty?" "I am very fond of Nlkky," said the king. "And he Is not very happy. He looks sad, sometimes. I I would tike him to marry Hedwlg, so we can oil be together the rest of our lives." The chancellor hesitated. But. after all, why not? He hud followed ambition all his life, and where hod It brought him? An old man. whose only happiness lay In this child In his arms. "Perhaps," he said gently, "that can be arranged also." The night nlr blew softly through the open wltu'ows. The little king smiled, contentedly, and closed his eyes. "I'm getting rather sleepy," he said. "But If I'm not too heavy, I'd like you to hold me a little longer." "You are not too heavy, majesty." Soon the chancellor, worn not with one duv, but with many, was nodding.
