K&hta and Buada, ' npIXAND AND ;w'r;:-v , By j. it. Amsterdam, July 1. Do believe me, I've bad another full day. From three tfclock this morning, Just barely daybreak, to lafe at night there'! boen something doing every minute. For several hours in west ern Germany the German farms and the large manufacturing towns were a study. Soon, came the Holland frontier where we were obliged to pass customs. We have now passed through the ordeal some five times but always without, difficulty and with but little delay. The more prompt one Is and the more free to open ; the baggage the less the officers are disposed to disturb one's effects. They .ususlly inquire whether we have any cigars and cigarettes which seems to be the chief grounds of offense among smugglers in a small way. But rural Holland!' From the very borderline to the moment we reached Amsterdam the low, white corniced, steep-roofed, brick houses were seen in country, villages and even in the towns. Many of the country homes are thatch roofed. There . is more waste land in east Holland than I supposed either i boggy marsh land or light sand. Of this latter, I was told by a bright. young Hollandlsh son of a bulb merchant on his return from Ger many where he had spent the year acquiring the language, great quan tities are transported to the bulb growers' gardens in the west or Holland around Tarlem and Leyden. They do it to lighten the boggy soil and strangely enough, this sand has to be applied about every third year. It works' down into the sub soil." This young gentleman Is an artist too, He promised to paint a little saucer with Holland scenery just a hurry sketch for souvenir pur poses. He would accept no pay. I paid him well for postage. I won der if he will. As we approached Holland the characteristic features of rural Dutch life became more and more pronounced. Small farms, ditched harrow lands, varied crops with pas ture and hay predominating, neat and well kept premises, heavy wheel ed carts, Holstein cows, goats, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens and scattered somewhat thinly as far as eye could reach, the world ' famed windmills. Occasionally I saw a modern mill such as we are accus tomed to at home. In the afternoon we took the celebrated trip to the Isle of Marken and to Edam where the far famed Edam cheese derived its name and is still made to some, extent. We pasesd through a rich dairy district where the farmers at this season, with excessive rains and cool wea ther, are having an excessively hard time to cure their hay crop. The Edam people some 2000 of them in the quaint little town have tak en on modern ways as to dress. They had just begun elaborate decora- PAVING ON SPRUCE AND OLIVE STARTED MONDAY Leslie Dodd, superintendent of the Kaw Paving Co., arrived in town today.

The little town of Vollendam of equal size, has refused to part with their ancient costume, ' (blouse trousers for the men and long dress es and aprons and a sort of whit bonnet-csp for the women and girls, and wooden shoes for all.) Those on the Isle of Marken. about 1300 la all, are even more pronounced In their isolation. They grow hay and pasture all over the Island hut the principal Industry Is fishing. About 80 good sized sail boats were mass ed in the harbor, row on row, like soldiers, with bayonets. Some have grown almost wealthy. All take pride in displaying their clean homes with wall beds, delft were sanded or painted floors and richly colored garments. The men wear blouses too, only shorter. The wooden shoes, made for the most part of willow, and 'used by the rural people and poorer classes throughout Holland are left at the door, everyone wearing heavy wool en hose and some having house slip pers besides. The people have a church, the minister having but re cently returned from a world con ference of Reformed ministers. We had short time for Amster dam but enough' to visit the great Dom church where Queen Wllhel mlna who is greatly beloved by all her people), worships during her short stay Here for a period of fes tivities In the fall. At present she lives at her summer palace In a little town which we passed through early this morning while her real home is at The Hague, the capital, where we shall be tomorrow. Her Amsterdam palace, used only occa sionally for bref periods, is one of the marvels of old Holland. It was built to be the town hall In the glorious days of Holland's gold en age when she dominated the world in commerce and to a good degree In art. With partitions of imitation mar ble the great corridors were cut up into splendid receptlm rooms, par lors, dining rooms, etc. , The su perb paintings,, statues, allegoricnl sculpture, base reliefs and rich tap estries still remain and reveal the genius and splendor of past day.. In the gallery -we found pictures by Rubens, Rembrandt and other cele brated masters among them "The Night Watch" one of the master pieces of the latter. Having made a hurried visit to the diamond cutting establishment, taken some street car excursions about this ancient city with its hun dreds of bridges and having observed and mingled with the great mass of Saturday night promenaders I have come again to bedtime.

ABOUT THAT QUEER ACTION IN SELLING PARK AND STREET Editor Reflector: Mayor Nichols in a heated article in your columns yesterday, ending with threats of "exposure" of former councllmen it they dare criticise him, makes what he calls a defense of the city com mlssloners' sale of the Third street pafk. It is not clear what "expo sure" has to do with the matter nor Is his assumption that there is knocking on Mr. Irey well taken. The former city administration ex tended the park idea, not curtailed lt.r Nobody blames Mr. Irey; all admire his smartness In getting for a song the park property and part of the street thrown in, and are glad to see he is to make a hand some profit. The park was small to be sure but it was something and if as May or Nichols, says, it was a "dumping ground" it was his business to see that it was kept clean. In pretending to give its cost to the city be con ceals the cost of putting water on the lot which was done so It might be kept green. The property was bought when lots were worth about one tenth" their present value. So the city did not nearly get Its money back, considering the Interest He has allowed the expensive shrubs to die and sells It because it was not kept up. His claim that it will bring in some taxes is also true of cutting up the city hall park, the court house grounds and the school ground DoAi the favor doing that? If the city wanted to sell the park why did not the commission ers openly advertise It and sell to the highest bidder. Instead of on the aulet? Would Mr. Nichols or Mr. Johntz or Mr. Schreiner handle their own property that way? He knows very well that it would have brought more money that way If public sentiment had not stopped the whole proceeding. Ik Is a fine state of affairs when a city park can be sold off hand and part of a street vacated and thrown In for good measure with no notice to the public. We had one shining example of the workings of com mission government when petty politics forced J. K. Forney off the board and now we have another. It is a wonder that the mayor has the nerve to defend his action and his attempt to ston, criticism by threats of exposure is about the limit. WEST S1DER.
