"Allien" shall be given to an avenue or public square in- Paris, in honor of the king of Belgium. The rue de Berlin has already been changed to the rue de Liege and it is proposed to give a Belgium or Knglish name to the Avenue de 1 Opera, which before 1870 was the Avenue Napoleon. The former Ave nue U'Allcniagne is now the Avenue Jean James. The city of Rouen has changed the name of the Boulevard Canehois to Boulevard des Beiges. The Place de la Gare in Orleans has been changed to Place Albert 1 imrt two bridges over the Loire have been renamed George V and Nicholas 11. This is only the beginning of the radical changes of nomenclature that will in all towns of France mark the war. The transformation is not con fined to names of streets- squares and places. All Germ-in and Aus trian names of products have already disappeared. F.au de Cologne is to be called Kau de Lou vain or F.nu de Provence. Viennese bread is now called Pain Liegois. In the phonograph parlors all names of German pieces have been marked off the programs. PENSIONS FOR BOXERS. LONDON".

For tune tellers now are forbidden to practice in any part of the German ; empire. Soon after the war broke : out they began to do an enormous j business with relatives of soldiers in ; the field, who wanted to know how things were going with them. Visits to the fortune tellers often had tragic 'consequences, as many of the callers i were in a high state of nervous ten sion. i The uncertainty of relatives regard ing their men folk at the front has ! been aggravated by the complete i muddle of the field postal organiza tion, which is being severely criti- . eized by the newspapers. TURKISH CIGARETTES HOT FROM TURKEY j LONDON, Dec. 27. With Turkey's entrance into the war, th question arose among many iiatriotic London ers as to the propriety of smoking Turkish cigarettes.

A long statement today from a tobacco expert clears the atmos phere, however, by explaining that the best "Turkish" cigarettes are no long er Turkish, hut come from Macedonia and the western areas of Thrace, which have been divided since the Balkan war between Servia, Greece and Bulgaria.

When a battle is not in progress the best of feeling appears to exist between the French and German soldiers, who for two months have faced one another on the long line between Nieuport and Belfort. So close are the camps to each other that it is possible for the two forces to exchange words. They in dulge in good natured contests, such as shooting at spade targets, with no intention of hitting anyone, and com pete for hares which run between the lines. A French soldier writes of these amusements: "A target is painted on a spade and mo ed through our trench in such, a way that it shows about two feet above the ground. , The Germans shoot at it. With a stick we indicate the results "of their fire and when one hits the bullseye he is rewarded with the waving of a French flag. "There is another sort of target practice which is very popular. The region around us is full of cabbage fields and the cabbage fields are full of hares and rabbits. These hares sometimes cross over own private meadow". Immediately lioth trenches are all aflame. Long sounding vol leys follow the poor little beast. He makes a graceful sommersault, throws his ears up in the air and falls, a martyr to Europe's militarism. "Then comes the time to divide our spoils. Jf Brer' Rabbits expires on the German half the custom of the country prescribes that a German may leave the trenches and get the prize. That day the German cave dwellers eat "hasenbraten." If the animal dies on our side we delegate a man ta fetch him and we eat "Lievre farci." But if he should die most inconsiderately right on the line then there is trouble. We both rush for our meal while a terrific fire is opened and we run the risk of being killed by friend as well as by enemy. "The other day we did not know on which side of the line a hare had died. We looked out of njr trenches and the Germans fired. The Germans peeped around the corner and we fired. Finally a court of arbitration took the matter in hand. A loud German voice called out 'tobacco." We thought that the proposal was fair. One of our men showed the Germans three packages of cigarettes. Then he climbed out of the trench and walked to the dead hare. He deposited his cigarettes and took the hare. Then he returned. A German came and took the tobacco. Five minutes later the Germans were smok ing and we were preparing our stew." The camps frequently entertain each other with singing. And perhaps a few moments later the efforts of both sides will turn to whistling bullets about one another's heads. VINTAGE OF 1914 IN : CHAMPAGNE IS SECURE RHEIMS. Dec. 23. The vintage of 1914 in the champagne country is secure. The grapes are under press while the cannons continue to boom toward the north. "When the champagne province was invaded," said the director of one of the big champagne cellars, "the Ger mans said: 'The wine will be ours,, so they spared the vines; when our troops chased them out, they had not time to stop to do any damage, all of which is especially fortunate, since 'the year of the war' will class along side 'the year of the comet' as one of the best vintages." The gathering of the grapes around Rheims was done under a violent fire. The joyous peasant girls whose laugh ter Is poetically said "to be imprisoned with the wine and to come out with the sparkle" went about their work as . if the ground was not being ploughed everywhere by the unex ploded German shells. This year there Is little laughter in their song, but there Is more patriotism and the music by which it was accompanied was the ominous crashing report of the little 3-inch field gun of the French artillery. Most of the wine houses above ground were seriously damaged by the heavy artillery fire from both sides, but, as a rule, the cellars, owing to their depth and solidity, have not suf- "Tir SOU JED FEET "TIZ" makes sore, burning, tired feet fairly dance with delight.

They served and still serve as a shelter for thousands of poor refu gees who find no other place to es cape from the German shells. The only damage to the cellars was dur ing the German occupation, for while they spared the vines, they did not spare the bottles. Nearly every cellar in the champagne district was heavily drawn upon, but none of them were really pillaged. In some cases the wine was drunk on the spot and some of the officers who indulged too freely were still there when the French occupied the territory, but the common soldier was not permitted this luxury, and to this fact is probably due the escape of the cellars from complete depletion. Experts who have estimated the i total yield consider that it will be a little helow the average in quantity, though it will be quite superior to latter years in quality. I D06 MAKES WAV LONDON, Dec. 27. When James Brown left England with his regi ment in August his terrier flog be came very restless. On September 27 he disappeared from his home in Hammersmith and Mrs. Brown en listed the police force in an effort to find him, but without success. Nothing was heard of the dog then until she received a letter from her husband before Ypres, saying a man brought him the pet from the front trenches. How the animal got across the channel is a mystery.

A corporal in the French army is the proud pos sessor of a cap presented to him by General Pau, according bo a correspon dent of the Amsterdam Elsblad. The corporal stood, with bared head, in the rain and saluted he general as he approached. "Where is your cap?" the general asked. "I lost 1t today when we attacked through the wood.," the corporal re plied. T was in too great haste to go back and get It." Instead1 of punishing the man for losing hip cap, the general handed him his, which was dK"orted with golden oak leavoF. Other soldiers have ob jected "to tile corporal wearing the "cap, but it remains on his head. . "THE N.

Dec. 25. Berlin has at present about 1,100 hospitals for the wounded, the smallest accomodating forty cases while the larger ones have irom 400 to finO beds. In all there are said to be about 10. 000 wounded in Berlin hospitals, the number' being maintained fairly con stant although the individual patients are constantly changing. A very large proportion of the wounded, it is stated, are soon discharged as again fit for duty and return to the front. No def inite figures are available but an army surgeon who has had large experience both in the field and in the base and reserve hospitals estimated that about seventy per cent of the wounded are returning or will return to duty, only thirty per cent, being permanently un fitted for military service. The Associated Press correspondent was taken through six of the larger Berlin hospitals and found there many of the wounded from the recent cam paign against Warsow and Ivangorod. These men had had a particularly try; ing experience. Many of them, wound ed before Ivangorod for example, had been transported in wagons for two days before reaching the Russian rail roads and had been another two to four days en route over the Russian railroads before reaching the German railroads at Kattowitz. Silesia. . Thence to Berlin the transport had gone forward smoothly and comfort ably in the wonderful German hospital trains to Berlin but the first part of the journey had been a protracted stage of pain and discomfort. Nevertheless they were practically all in good spirits and in most cases making rapid progress toward recovery. Wounded lodged in the Royal Conservatory of Music, now converted into a model hospital, have in their wards pictures by Van Dyke, Rubens, Velasquez and other old masters, the works in the school gallery having been distributed among the various rooms. In the School of Applied Arts now also a hospitel, the wounded had before them for study beautiful roreelain, enameled curios and tapes tries. In one of the officers' casinos, now converted into a hospital, an other large collection of pictures of military subjects confronted them on the walls. Field hospitals are erected quickly. A visit was paid to a new "Barrack hospital" composed of wooden, trans portable barracks, each holding thirty men. In a few days this hospital to hold 1,200 had sprung up on Tem pelhofer field, hot and cold water had been installed, heating service rrovlded, a thoroughly modern opera ting room equipped and it was figur ed that In four days, if necessary, the entire hospital could be taken to pieces and placed on automobiles YOUR VALLEY BANK CHECKS ARE GOOD Salle Ispmediate Dismissal Handke'rch'f .

Little is said in the German papers about sickness in the army. There lias been considerable enteric trouble but this -s disappearing with the ad vent of cold weather. The entire army in the west has been vaccin ated against typhoid, the men as signed to service in the east have in addition been inoculated against cholera. Pneumonia, it is said, is comparatively not a danger since the men in the trenches are warmly clad but other diseases of the res piratory system are quite frequent. Overstrain of the heart is also a fre quent cause of men being invalided home or sent to hospital, many re servists and volunteers breaking down under the strain of hard cam paigning. PEOPLE WITH THE PRESIDENT. Missourians especially are following with much interest the patronage con troversy which has arisen in Wash ington. There are some who say that the senators are entitled to name the men who hold office in their states, and these can usually be traced to some close touch with organization politics. Most men, who have no per sonal jnterest in the matter, are back ing the president. Missouri voted for Wilson when he was an uncertain quantity as far ns they knew. Now that he has been president for two years they are stronger in their al legiance than ever. And this is not confined to those who are democrats. President Wilson is the president of the whole people and they recognize it. Missouri will side with the presi dent in this controversy and even in Kansas City the main body of the democrats will support him. William Southern Jr., in the Independence Ex aminer.
