ESTABLISHED 1845. Spresident "over there" Author of'the Famous Fourteen Points Will Sit at Peace Ta? ble and See That America's Aims Are Carried Out. Washington, December 3?1'resi?ent Wilson began tonight his trip to Eu? rope to attend the peace conference. The President left Washington on a special train for New York, where to? morrow he and his party will board the transport George Washington on which the voyage across the Atlantic will be made. No announcement was made as to the president's itinerary, but it was understood that the George Washing? ton would steam from New York with her naval convoy sometime tomor? row, probably in the morning. About seven days will be required for the trip, and the ship will dock at a French port, presumably Brest. The President does not expect to be abroad for more than six weeks, which would give him just a month on European soil. Bet'ora the peace conference meets he will confer with Premiers Lloyd George, of Great Britain; Clcmanceau, of France and Orlando, of Italy, and probably with King Albert of Belgium, to discuss the salient points of the peac treaty. While in Europe Mr. Wilson plans to visit England and Italy as well as France, and he may go to Brussels. Hu also is understood to intend to make a pilgrimage to some of the battlefields in France. Great prep? arations have been made in London Paris, and Rome for the President's reception. Joseph P. Tumulty, the president's secretary, accompanied Mr. Wilson to New York, but will not go abroad. He will return to Washington to conduct the ubsiness of the White House and will be the eyes and eacrs of the president in this country. Mr. Tu? multy will be in frequent communica? tion with the oresident by cable and will keep him fully advised of events at home. President Wilson did not go to the union station until a short time be? fore the time for his train to depart. As he and Mrs. Wilson entered the station the crowd there cheered and s'ddiers and sailors who were wait? ing for trains formed a human lane through which the President and Mrs. Wilson walked to the train shed. When some of the crowd wished the president "Good Luck" and "A Pleasant Voyage,"' Mr. Wilson smil? ingly called back "Thank you." Just before the train pulled out of the stntion, the personnel of the par? ty aboard was announced. Only three of the five American representatives to the peace confer? ence as announced at the White house will cross on the former North Ger? man-Lloyd liner. They are the pres? ident himself, ecretary of t?te Rob? ert Lansing, and Henry White, form? er ambassador to France and Italy. "Colonel E. . House and General Tas ker H. Bliss, the other two mem? bers, now are in France and will join the president there. Rcar-Admirnl H. . Knapp and Cap? tain William V. Pratt are accompany? ing the presidential party and will report to Admiral Benson, naval ren representative with Colonel House on the peace mission, as his assistants. Admiral Knnpp has been in command of the naval forces in Haiti and San Domingo and Captain Pratt, who is assistant chief of naval operations, has been acting bend of the burer.u of operations during the nbsence of Admirnl Benson. Army officers accompanying the presidential party include Brigadier General Churchill, chief of the mil? itary intelligence bureau. Other of? ficers who will assist General Bliss will be ajor-Genernl Francis J. Ker nan and Colonels Van Deman, Jor don, Ayers, Helms, Furlong, Fling, and Captains Fuchenchloss and Child.

Falls Mills, Hoisse valnc and Pocahontas. I The editor had it flying trip around Iwith Mr. Ma;tin Tuesday, passing I thru Pocnhonta.i, lloisjevaiuo, Alii '.* jValley and other points of Interest. | The day w?s bright, Ihr air bracing, ; our Kord In n good humor and mubi I lions to prove un over some very bud roads, and lu ''show horse'f" on some , splendid ones. At Pocahontus, Judge Owens ro j ported the "flu" raging. He said , that Kllett and Prnnzier, the well .known grocery merchants, wen bulb in bed, and tin.I Mr. Oder's life bud been despaired of. During this brief I vist of less than bnlf an hour thorn I wns little opportunity to look around. . The town seemed unusually quiet. Few people were on the streets. Thpru seemed an ominous silence in the j Main Streets, due perhaps to the pre vnlance of the epidemic. We missed thru Doissevnine, which 1 saw for the first thus, |t is uulte a neat little ; mining village, houses perched high on the hills, a neat church, a largo ] new brick company store. The one street of the town, flunked on both ' sides by company houses, was full of miners und others going home for supper. I got a glimpse of Dud. Da 1 ker. He milked like be had been wnl I lowing ill n coal bank. I hollered to j him as we whizzed past, hut I dont I think ho recognized me. We were in a hurry to gel across thu Tip Top I hill before dark, and were losing no 1 lime. Ann's VALLEY. 1 saw the historic Abb's Valley for I the lira! lu.ic, and recalled what 1? I related ;ii the little book "The Cap hives of Abb'? Valley," where the I Moore family were almost extermi? nated by the Indians years ago. 0. B. : Joyful Moore, a member of the Moore jlnmily, lives in the old home place oi I his fathers He has n nice home and 'a tine farm, and brags a good deal about bis line corn. We got n glimpse I of him us we passed. He was pot l ei ? i ing around in a barn hIickI near the < road, all muffled up like he was about half frozen. On the road lives Wag i tier, Mrs. Ilurrissou and John W. IUuchannii, Mr.-.. Ilnrrisson has a nice large residence, wl|jlc just across the road is the old log house of other I days, long ago. Glad it stands. These I old landmarks should not be lorn I away. The "old pile" is "crumbling I In the dust." The roof of the old front I porch is sway-hacked and, like an oh I man, is bowing and leaning towards 'the eul'th. Talk about bad roads! In i Abb's Valley there is some of the worst roads ever. Along about MrH. Harrison's and .lohn Iluchanan's ami i in other places, the roads are bad enough now. What they must bo in midwinter is scraccly imaginable. I We wound around over a big ridge : und down this sldu to the I .it h in ! Springs. Martin pointed out the old : bridge where Doak and Otis Ilopkinn 1 had n debacle once upon n time, when something got wrong with the stem ing gear, magneto, carburetta, brake [or some other part of the car, and ?ran them against side of the bridge lover the bank and In otthc creek, ' where both of them thought they I were both dead, but luckily, neither I of them seriously hurt. Thu large j buildings at he Lithiti Springs arc "silent and lone," and likely to ro main SO unless some better roads arc I built. Once "over the top," we v.hizz : ed by Tip Top and were soon within j sight of the "lights of the city," the hands on my watch marked 6:16, just bout two hours from Porn. home. Af . tcr a very pleasant day in most agrce i able und congenial compnny of the intelligent and cultured county road engineer. J. A. L. SOME THANKSGIVING DINNER. 1 C. f.
