Brown, president of the Tampa Board of Trade, who is one of Florida's rep resentatives on the commissions sent by the Southern Commercial Congress tj investigate present conditions in European , countries, writes interest ingly of his experiences to a friend here. His letter, which comes under date of Oct. 5 from Paris, is in part as follows: "Have been here for a week, and am going on to Switzerland tomorrow, then to Italy and some other promi nent but ancient places. Will sail about Oct. 19 from Naples for the .good old U. S. A. Have sure been traveling, some the past five weeks. It might be interesting for me to tell ou that the prettiest countries we have seen wereScotland and Holland. I saw more cows and sheep between Edinburg and Amsterdam I believe than are in the whole of the United States. Fine farms and pretty stock of all kinds, and food in abundance. "We found plenty of food, and well dressed people in Belgium outside of tho war zone. We visited the battle- Pelds of Ypres, Dixmude and other smaller towns in Belgium, and from Paris we went yesterday to Chateau Thierry and Belleau Wood. This was a horrible sight, especially the Ypres sector. Near Ostend we saw the Big Bertha gun, mounted to des troy Dunkirk, but they were late in mounting it, and failed to do much damage. ; "Paris is a great city, but has not recovered from the war a great deal. Tilings are high and service is not very good. A dollar of S. A. money will buy eight francs and fifty two centimes, or about twelve cents per frtnc. This -places the money of France way below what it should be, and militates against the restoration of normal business. X "The commission has been ; shown much attention in every country visit ed thus far. We leave here Monday for Switzerland, where we will proba bly visit iBerne, Basie and Geneva, thence to Italy. Will give you a good account of the trip and its inter esting points when I reach home. "By the way, I found Mr. Oscar Daniels in a hospital here and paid hi a visit today. - He is doing fine, And will soon be out and home to Tampa again." w lute I Omeg hag and BODY IN KEY WEST.
