SITUATION AROUND PARIS.

feel i n a couple of hours one
minute we would be in a dark tun
nel, the next we would be .passing
close to a large glacier, then
the car would turn around a curve
and we would see the green field
of Italy lying far below. The snow
gradually disappeared and we be
gan to see wild flowers and we be
gan to see some of the wonderful
Italian vineyards built up on the
hillsides in terraces. The train sped
along the east shore of Lago de
Como and we saw many handsome
villas and said good-bye to snow
We teached the old town of Mi
lan in the evening, going to tine
Hotel Cavour, the quietest in lie
town. It was rather noisy, but
there a:e no really good hotels in
Milan and all are rather poor and
noisy. The most famous buildings
in Milan are the Cathedral and one
of the opera ho.ises. The Cathedral
is a splendid mass of pinnacles and
marble figures and boasts of the
finest colored glass windows in
Europe. There are so many ugly
buildings crowding around the
Cathedral that one loses the beauty
of it to a great extent.
Fortunately for us the 2nd night
tee were there the Opera Co. pre
sented "Parsifal" and through our
hotel porter (the only man in a
European h itel who knows any
thing) we managed to get two
good tickets and much lo our
pleasure heard a grand opera, and
as the theater is the largest in the
world the stage se'tins were
We also had the pleasure of
hearing Sig. Nicoletti, his voice
being better than when he sang
with the Lambardv Co. in Hono
lulu in the winter of 1913.
When he heard that we were in
the t neater lie invited us to supper
ill a large Italian cife and at 1 A.
M. we sat down to a real Italian
supper of goulash o f chicken's
combs-rve bread and beer. Th"
beer wa very good.

eries is Leonardo da Yinches, pic

went t o a virv pleasant hotel
tunned the Excelsior where we had
rooms overlooking the River Arno,
almost as wall known in Roman
history as the Rubicon and Tiber
and every day dozens of Itulians
were busy sifting out the river
sands and carrying away boat loads
of fine soil for use in their or
chards. The Italians around Flor
ence were very thrifty people and
it was a pleasure to drire through
the country and tee their well kept
Florence was delightful. Spring
was in the air and the peach and
apple troes in full bloom, and a
spirit o f friendliness seemed to
pervade all the sheps and people,
and it was fun to wander up th
little narrow streets only 8 or 16
ft. wide and see the life of the
people, with never a rude remark
heard all the time we were there.
Thev had tat naost delightful little
taxi cabs there, jst held my party
and a jorial old driver that knew
a few English or French words
and we guessed the rest, with the
aid of a little Latin learned inschool
and off we would go. The meter
started at 12 cts. U. S., and grad
ually worked p to 30 cts. One
day we felt Ktravagent, and drove
out through the hills towaids the
home of the famous Gallileo and
drove till we were tired of sitting
in the carriage, and when we get
i ack the meter only registered a
little over a dollar, and when I guve
him 20 ce-utshe became so excited
thai he wanted me to ennMe him
for every day we remained in Flor
ence. THE CARS IN FLORENCE
The only things we found to
criticize in Floience wese the trol
ley cars jnd the guards in tha pic
ture galleries. There was a mueh-
advertised trip to Fiesole and the
car went everv half hour. Although
it was tourist season and crowds
eager to go. they refused to put oa
a larger car or more of them, but
just left the crowds to fight for
places. The car had a little trailer,
and although the conductor taid it
went all the way to Fiesole, they
dropped it off just at the be
ginning i the last climb and all
the people tiding in il had to get
t and walk half a mile uphill tm
.lie end of the line or f3v a dollar
and tel an obliging carnage driver
to carry one the rest of the way.
