(Correspon dence of The Associated Press) The date line reveals one of the interesting secrets of the army in France, the loca tion of the home of the commander-in-chief and the general staff. Until a lew days ago when the censorship rules were modified to meet the new conditions created by the armistice, Chaumont has never been permitted to be mentioned in connection with the American forces. The exact whereabouts of the general headquarters of any force, allied or enemy, is never revealed during hostili ties. The military reasons for this secrecy are obvious and in this war the airplane made it ever more necessary, for Chaumont lies but a lit'le flight from what were long German lines. It is an old and picturesque city, quiet and conservative beyond even French provincialism. It has water and gas and electric lights, but no street rail ways and few places of amusement even in normal times. It lies in the center of an agricultural and grazing district, is quite a seat of education and historilally very interesting, as indeed is every city of its age in France. There are really two Chaumonts, the NEVADA PACKARD Xeep your eye on Xevada Packard the stock that is now returning, in dividends, 20 on a --ice of 50c u share. What's more, it is now sell- ng at much less than 50c. The last dividend was paid Septem- er 30th the next one in January. Investigate Nevada Packard today! It's a dividend stocks and you know what that means'. So. again we say, 'watch Nevada Packard but get your share while you're at it. "Write now! R. L. Colburn 341. Bush Street San Francisco ancient town with Its narrow, tortuous streets, its typical buildings with cur ious towers and buttresses and arches giving glimpses through half opened gates or iron grills of quaint gardens and quainter courts, ilany of the streets are too narrow to permit the passage of wheeled vehicles and the big staff motor cars find difficulty in navi gating the best of the old town streets. Extending outward on the high plateau upon which the city is located is a newer and modern Chaumont, a region of fine homes with extensive grounds and comfortable, residences of the well-to-do and middle classes. Here the wide boulevards are tree-lined and parked. It is in this eastern part of the pla teau that general headquarters are lo cated, occupying the French military post turned oved to the Americans by the French. Its three great concrete barracks and numerous .lesser build ings were renovated by . the American staff, electric lights installed, paint and whitewash called into play and now in rooms where once the poilus barracked their great headquarters staff works. Every' office is connected by telephone, the central station being operated by American girls. The three large barrack buildings form three sides of a great parade ground. In the center building on the second floor are the offices of General Pershing and no soldier's work could be more severe His own office and its reception room are precisely like every other office in the three buildings. The walls are whitewashed and practically barren of ornament except for some Liberty loan posters. A plain flat topped oak desk stands between the two windows and round about a few plain yellow chairs. A stove and a table against the wall complete the furnishings. Headquarters are situated on a wide, tree-lined boulevard In the center of which between two more rows of fine old shade trees, is a specious walkway. Until last Fourth of July thui was known as The Avenue de Fort Lambert but on Independence Day, it was re christened Avenue des Etats Unis, Gen eral Pershing being the guest of honor and making a speech in acknowledge ment of the courtesy done his country. At the beginning of the Avenue des Etats I'nis. which starts from a beauti ful little park is a handsome residonce in which the commander-in-chief made his home until last spring.

JUDGE IGNORANT ON LAW OF DOG FIGHTS Judge Wanamaker of the Ohio su preme court remarked in Jackson agt. Berger, 92 Ohio SU 147, and that "too many judges know as men what they refuse to know aa Judges." The obser vation of the learned Judge seems to us to be particularly applicable to the fol lowing amusing disclaimer by the court in Wiley agt. Slater, 22 Barb. (N. T.) 50S: "This is the first time I have been called upon to administer the law in the case of a pure dog fight, or a fight in which the dogs, instead of the own ers, were the principal actors. I have had occasion to preside unonthe trial originating in affrays In which the masters of dogs have borne a conspic uous part, and acquitted themselves in a manner which might well have aroused the envy of their canine depen dents. The branch of the law, there fore, applicable to direct conflicts and collisions between dog and dog is en tirely new to me, and this case opens up to me an entire new field of inves tigation. I am constrained to admit to tal ignorance of the code duello among dogs, or what constitutes a Just cause of offense and justifies a resort to the ultima ratio regem, a resort to arms, or rather to teeth, for redress; whether Jealousy is a Just cause of war, or what different degrees and kinds of insult or slight, or what violation of etiquette entitle the injured or offended beast to insist upon prompt and appropriate satisfaction I know not, and am glad to know that no nice question upon the conduct of the conflict on the part of the principal actors arises in this case. It is not claimed, upon either side, that the sruggle was not in all respects dog like and fair. Indeed, 1 was not aware law, human or divine, moral or cere monial, common or statute, undertook to regulate and control these matters, but supposed that this was one of the few privileges which this" class of ani mals still retained in the domesticated state; that it was one of their reserved rights, not surrendered when they en tered into and became a part of the do mestic institution, to settle and avenge, in their own way, all individual wrongs and insults, without regard to what Blackstone or any other jurist might write, speak or think of the Tights of persons' or "right of things." ' o GASOLINE LEVEL If the gasoline level is too high, the carburetor will be flooded, while if it is too low there will be a tendency toward lean mixture and difficult starting. - For satisfoctory operation it is important that the carburetor float be adjusted so that the gasoline level is about one-thirty-seoond of an inch below the outlet of tho lowest BALLOON DARKENS CITY It is not often that a city is com pletely darkened by a balloon, yet ?his unusual circumstance happened last week when a balloon from the Good year balloon field, near Akron, Ohio, escaped from its moorings and soared aimlessly westward with the wind. The big bag came to earth at Oberlin, Ohio, and. in descending became entangled in some overhead cables, causing a short circuit in the electric current that plunged, the city into darkness: o CHANGE LUBRICANT This is the time of year when the lubricant in the various gear cases should be changed. This means that the old lubricant should be removed and the cases thoroughly flushed out with kerosene, and then should be filled to the level with a thinner Hi "brkant than was used during the warm weather. A heavy cylinder oil or a special grade of gear oil mnkv?s a very satisfactory winter lubricant foc.lhese -units.
