F1XIW BROTHER'S CHILDREN AF TER AN ABSENCE OF U YEARS STORK OF lOCXti MAN MHO LEFT HOME AT 17 YEARS IS JtROlGHT TO LIGHT AT CHAT OVER TEACUPS. Portland, Ore., Jan 27. Reading like fiction is the story of an un usually picturesque meeting of rel 36 years.. It was like this: a few days ago Mrs. Ada McGill of 695 Kearney street Invited two friendp in to have tea and "chat a wnile" with, her.' These friends were none other than Madamcs Laura Rose- '"e" oacic nomo ana tne good old .times at school and abroad. And then in a more serious strain of lone lost friends and relatives, never. once dreaming that a pretty romance, shaded with pathos, was at that mo ment existing at that "tete-a-tete." Mrs. Rose Diamond, upon learning that Mrs. Davidson's maiden name was also Rose, asked her how she spelled the name. She replied "R-o-s-e." Then Mrs. Diamond re marked: "That't the way we spell our name, but it Isn't often we meet peopie Dy. mat name who spell it like we do ours." Where did your tamHy come from?" she inauired vauuinju luioiiueu iier mat ner father came from Texas and formerly had seven brothers and five sisters. Mrs. Rose-Diamond remarked, "Isn't that strange, my father had seven brothers and five sisters too, and his home was Texas. But, "she ad ded, "one of his bothers left home or-,v y LTZ, thU J"106 helame 1 left hoIne hcfore we wom born, inllt ,.. ,OQrH - v.vu v. .uiiu i i i 'i an. in nun. Mrs. . Davidson remarked "Well, 'tis passing strange, my father said he left home when he was 17 years old and never returned and has never heard from his nennla nlnrA" The two turned again to their tea, neither of them, however, ever dream ing they were first cousins. Present- Mrs. Diamond Interrogated her friend a little turther: "What is yoi r fath- ers name?" Mrs. Davidson replied "Willis Rose." ';My father's brother who left home was named Willis, and my father talked much of him b. .'ore he died," said Mrs. Diamond. For a moment they both stared acros 'the table at each other, wearing first time they wore first cousins. After a few hurried explanations. "Uncle Willis was called on the phonS, told of the discovery, which in detail he substantiated, and a regular family reunion was the next in order. The two families have visited each other sine that time and over and over they repeat the story of the uncle who went away when a boy, who wroe back home to his people who hsil moved awv and beratiBe of that fact whose hitters were nevi-r delivered. 1 t of . one and one-third fare on all railroads loading into Dal- las for the Bishops' Council, A.

WO.UAJT WRITER BACKS FREXCH VEMALS OF CHARGES AUALNS1 BLACK TK00PS US RHINE TER RITORY. Corroboration from a German source of official denials by the French Government of the repeated charge voted in the German . press and elsewhere of wholesale abuses of women and children committed by the French Colored troops garri soned in the occupied territory along the Rhine is found in an article written by LRU Jannasch in Die Frau in Staat, and quoted in the November issue of Die Friedens Warte of Lelpsic. In beginning her article, which is entitled "Black Disgrace White Dis grace," the writer points out that she is not (defending the use of black soldiers in Europe, but she Insists that the French are not keeping them there Just for fun. but because of fear of the plans for - revenge be ing openly discussed by the unre fenerate Pan Germans and Junkers. After declaring that only through casting out it Cauvinists and show ing Itself rej w.tant and desirous of becoming a worthy member of a league of pei oful nations can Ger many cases the blacks shared their occupying forces, she says: "And how about the black dis grace? I Uved a year in the occu pied territory in a little place garri soued for months by several hundred black soldlors. The chief officials of the district (Landrat) assured me that during the entire time there had been no attacks upon women or Children. In fact, the blacks had be come quite popular. And I heard the same oplnoln from the people- In many cases the blacks shared thler meals with the children of the neigh borhood. "From Ludwlg-ihafen a lady said to me last summer when I question ed her: "When, we notice how scan dalously our white women and girls make friends with the blackst, ho they flirt and accept gifts of choco late, etc., we are not surprised if a misfortune occurs. In fact, re know from our own observation t'.at many white women find something alluring in entering into close relations with blacks, this we have frequently been able to verify - when members of Negro tribes were placed on exhibi tion in Germany. 'At the time of the Industrial Exhibition in Berlin, for example, it repeatedly happened that Negroes on exhibition there disap peared for several days and it was town taik thatwomen of "good so ciety" had been entertaining the Ne groes. Similar things have happened in cities In all parts of Germany, es pecially in Hamburg. Is not this "white disgrace " on the side of Ger man women much worse than the "black disgrace." . "That the attacks by the blacks are not committed by the wholesale, but are scattered cases, is shown In all the reports received from per sons who do not see through Pan German spectacles.

In connection with a report from Washington that Representative Brit ton of Illinois, was about to Intro duce a resolution of protest against the Industrial and Public School Re the further occupation of the Rhine territory by black troops, the iFrench Foreign Office announced on January 4, that the black soldiers had been withdrawn from the Rhine several months ago and sent to Syria and Africa, leaving only some Moroccan troops there.
