Letters From Paris.

; My dearest Mother:
S We have tried to take things a lit
7 ' tie easier today, as all this steady go
. ing is beginning to tell on us both,
v Besides we expect to leave soon for
1 ; a little trip through Italy and Swit-j
zerland and there will have to be
.A some rest days, or it will be a physi
i cal impossibility to keep up.
The French insist on sending break
fast to the rooms; I do not know
whether it is to cater to the indolence
of the inmates, or because it is more
economical. Anyway it is a very sim
V pie affair. Nothnig but coffee, rolls
"iy? ? .
'fit and butter, and to me it is none too
eye> appetizing when poked into your bed
TOrft* before your face is washed and your
cei: teeth brushed. I expect to get mine
Prr. in the dining room tomorrow morning j
y?/ if I have to sleep with my clothes on
u?v to accomplish it
ck\ , We moved into a "Pension" yester
. day and I am delighted with the
th?'n change. It only costs us forty francs
.j a day, which is about $2.50 per in
aV 1 our money. The marvel is how well
it is conducted for so small a sum,
; for the meals are excellent and so
? ' well served.
2 ' Immediately after lunch today, we
started for Versailles. I remember
v? reading in Carlyle's "History of the
French Revolution," how the women
1*., of Paris walked out to this palace to
^: demand bread of the king. If they
o%. did, it was some stroll, believe me.
They call it nine miles and I am sure
the Sans Culottes as well as myself
are convinced of it. . We passed
through some awful looking slums ]
and there were people around who 1
still looked mean enough to guillotine '?
. anything from a king down to poor, I
inoffensive me. They told us after- 1
wards we made a mistake in going i
on the tram, as it passes through a i
very rough section of the city, so we (
come back on the train. There is no 1
hope of getting around without <
trouble until we learn the French lan
guage better. I feel like saying as
? the little girl said to McDowell after i
?\ listening to him play one of his own i
% compositions, "You don't do it right <
>' at all
* But Versailles was worth all the
trouble of getting here. The gardens
were far larger and more elaborate
than any we saw in TSngTarici'.' Intakes
hours to walk over them, and the
gardener who laid them out must
have been the greatest genius of his
age. It was all done for Louis XIV,
and after him came "the deluge," so
I guess that explains where much of
the money , was sunk that caused
France to "go broke" about this time.
We made no effort to go into the pal
ace as it was impossible to do so and
see the garden the same afternoon,
but we went into the two Trianons.
I am sending you a postcard picture
of "The Grand Trianon" and "La
Petit Trianon" as you will associate
i Marie Antoinette with the one, and
the signing the "Peace Treaty" with
the othes. Both are exquisitely fur
nished and the inevitable guides are
present to "speil off" a lot of yarns
about it. For the first time since com
ing here I had the profound pleasure
of telling them I could not understand
one word of French so it was time
wasted. We had time to see the old
royal coaches and they were worth a
trip out there alone. While they look
ed like pure gold to me, they suggest
' ed hearses too strongly for me to en
V thuse over them. I don't want a free
-, ride in that sort of vehicle yet a
When we got back to the palace it ? j
' was too dark to see anything so we
are planning to go back and go
through it later on.
On our return trip we got off at
the "Invalides," right in front of Na
poleon's tomb, but it was raining and
too dark to see anything, so we hur
ried across a beautiful bridge called
"Pont Alexander'* and crossed the
Seine near the "Place de la Con
corde." Near by was a hotel in which
we took refuge until the rain was
over, and this hotel chanced to be the
one where Lloyd-George and the Brit
ish delegation are located for the^ con
ference to be held here Monday with
regard to the German indemnity.
France seems to be dissatisfied that
Germany has not been made to pay
her war debt, and there was a change
in the ministry not long ago, brought
about by this very dissatisfaction.
Briande has become the new premier
here, and every body here seems to
feel he will make Lloyd-George stand
by him in telling the Germans "where
they get off."
The conference will be in session
; for about three jweeks, and I see Sir
> Eric Geddes will come over from
'?' America and talk to Lloyd-George
-x here about our "naval ambitions."
The English can't get over America'
building a navy. It makes them sick
because they are too poor to excel
in this as they have always done.
I am expecting mail from you on
the Aquitania which arrives tomor
row, so I hope I shall not be disap
pointed. God bless and keep you al
j Lovingly yours,
Downward Trend Throughout
' New Orleans, Feb. 27.-The trend
of prices in the cotton market this
week was strongly downward and
after the middle of the week new
1 w levels were made, with the low
est of the week and season on the
close, March fell to-11.17 and July
to 12.01. Losses in the contract mar
ket amounted to 132 to 158 points.
In the spot department middling lost
125 points in the net results closing
at 11.50 cents a pound against 40.25
this week last year.
The heaviness of the spot markets
of the interior was the main reason
for the slump. Spot led at the de
cline constantly and at the end of
the week Fort Worth, Tex.as, quoted
middling at 10.65% cents a pound,
while Augusta, in the East quoted
middling; at 11.00 cents. There was
very little demand for spots at any
time in any section of the belt while
telegrams from the interior constant
ly referred to forced liquidation of
Two lots of cotton, one^ of a 100
bales and one of a 1,000, were heard
of as being on their way across the
Atlantic from Liverpool to be tender
sd against March contracts in the
New York market.
First notice day for March on
Wednesday went off better than ex
pected, particularly so in view of the
large amount of tenders estimated at
L0.000 bales in this market and 75,
300 bales in the New York market.
Lowest prices of the' week were
reached following reports of serious
rioting in Alexandria and there WP.S
:onsiderable selling on the fear that
;he market might open Monday lower
>n further unfavorable political
lews. It was said that the aid of a
arge cotton organization was seek
ng to have legislation passed to pre
sent short selling and this may have
:onsiderable effect on the market.
Further Reduction in Wages
Greenville, Feb. 27.-A further
'eduction in wages of 15 per cent to
ts employees which, with the aboli
ion of bonuses, makes a total cut of
?0 per cent since the downward tread
>f prices began, is announced by the
/ictor-Monaghan company, which op
?rates a chain of eight cotton mills
n upper South Carolina. The reduc
ion, effective March 1, will effect be
ween 5,000 and 6,000 employees.
)ffice employees are also affected by
his reduction for the first time. The
ittitude of the employees if problem
itical. Rumors of a possible strike
vere heard on the streets at Greer,
vhere two of the Victor-Monoghan
nills are located, but little credence
s placed in these reports. It is gen
ii-ally believed that the operatives
ully appreciate the problems facing
he mill management and are willing
o do their share toward solving these
)roblems. It was stated cotton mills
ixecutives said some plants are bo
ng operated now merely to keep the
>rganization or employees intact.
Notice is hereby given that on the
LOth day of March, 1921, I will make
ipplication to The Peoples Bank of
Sdgefield, S. C., for the reissue of a
:ertificate of stock to take place of
:ertificate No. 66; also to The Bank
)f Johnston, Johnston, S. C., for the
reissue of the three following certifi
?tes of stock, Nos. 260, 332 and
395, all of which certificates as issued
by said banks have been lost.
