j Second street.
Captain Holmes, a grandson of the
' late Dr. William H. Egle. for many
> ears State Librarian lor Pennsylva-j
nia, was born in this city, removing
to Indianapolis with his parents dur-j
ing his boyhood. He Joined the Perdue]
University Battery for"Mexican Border
duty, and has been in the Regular C.
S. Army since May, 1917, sailing over
seas in December, and receiving his
captaincy last March.
For several months he was located
in the St. Mihiel region and was there
when the lighting in that section was
the greatest. At the time the armis
tice was signed, he was at the front,
under orders to leave for the United
I Mates, and spent that night in Toul.
.where the great lights snone wildly
out from the regular Fourth of July
celebration made by the gunners, who
determined that no ammunition should
be left to carry back. •
l'urln c.oe* Cral)
The armistice was signed ,at the i
eleventh hour of the eleventh day of ]
the eleventh month, and the next j
evening Captain Holmes was with a j
group of fellow-officers in Paris. He j
participated in the great pea i- e cele- ;
hration of that wonderful Tuesday, j
i when Mardi Gras festivities were
mild, compared with these. Everybody
i was out for fun, and the bands played
i continually. All day Wednesday the !
• American. British and French bands
• played on the steps of the Paris Opera
House, the favorite numbers being
| the French marching
• song; "Le Marsellaise." "God. Save the
King." and "The Star-Spangled Ban
ner." i
Captain Holmes had the novel ex- ,
per ience ot living in a second line I
j trench town, just, left by the Ger-1
I mans, whose forces were originally!
half a kilometer awav. On arrival. 1
| officers picked out the best-looking,
old stone house they could find tor
headquarters and comfortably went |
oft to sleep. During the night they j
found the rain was beating in and an |
' inch of water covered everything. The
I roof was entirely off. something they
I had entirely overlooked in selecting
their horpe. '

Donald Carruthers Writes of!
■ Manners and Customs in /
Far-off Flowery Kingdom
Donald W. Carruthers, of this city,
who is secretary of the Army Y.
M. C. A. Legation Guards in the
"Princeton Work In Peking,"' China,
China, has wrttten a most interest
ing letter to Ills parents, Mr. and
! Mrs. J. B. Carruthers. of State
| street, telling all abotlt a big Chi
nese wedding, the details of which
Oct. 9, 1918.
My Dear Mother aud Father:
Next door to where I am living
there is a big Chinese wadding now
in progress and according to the
Chinese custom they are carrying
the presents through the streets in
order that every one may see how
beautiful they are and how rich
the givers of the dowry really nre.
A huge mat shed has been erected
and a Chinese orchestra lias been
engaged to furnish the music which
will consist largely of beating a huge
drum to the accompaniment of
clanging cymbals which would even
make the Apostle Paul decidedly ill
at ease. This said music will con
tinue all night and to-morrow per
haps. The bride will be carried into
the house in a small closed red
covered sedan chair and the groom
for the first time will have the op
portunity of beholding her smiling
visage for the llrst time. The Chi
nese saying is that in foreign wed
dings, we pour our water in hot
(love! and it gradually gets cold,
but they pour their water in cold
and it gets hot. I don't believe this
latter statement for their happiness
seems many times to be. to lis at
least, delusion. I am told that the
j first few years of the married life
I of the young bride are spent, in
j rible misery—for she is the
i hold slave of the modherln-law and
I one can well imagine what that
i means. After she has her first child .
this relation of serfdom ceases .but
still she Is kept in the background
and referred to as the "woman in
the home." To me it appears that
the greatest problem before this
nation at the present time is that
of making homes in the true sense
of the word. I believe fully in the
Christian solution of "the problem
where motherhood and all that
; home embodies —are kept hallowed
Iby the remembrance of Him who j
! resorted to Bethany to enjoy the |
I homelife of His friends. Mary and j
Martha. Someone has said that the :
j nation or people that holds woman ;
iin an inferior position can never (
hope to advance and there appears
i to be nothing to refute such a state
-1 ment. ,
Mr. BurgeSs lias lent us his Victor
j and several excellent records. It
is real sport to take your bath to the
tune of a stirring operatic air of
an expressive violin selection. I am
sure that were I to be sent into the
interior for a period of years I would
like to take a machine with me with
i a full supply of records. It
j gives one so much pleasure. I wish
j there was some sort of a iflachlne
j whereby the pictures of the famous
I art galleries could be put on a rec
| ord and sent around so that you
I could get the same joy of looking at i
! them one does in the galleries At
; home. I am trying to enjoy Chinese
painting as a substitute for the art
of the west, which I cannot see be
cause. of my separation from it. I
am a bit surprised to find myself
really getting a whole lot of enjoy
ment from Chinese painting. A few i
I days ago I visited the Art Museum j
in the Forbidden City together with j
!my friend Shoemaker, 1916, who j
i took the same course in art in :
; Princeton that I did and we heartily
j enjoyed a lot of fhe pictures al
' though they are vastly different in
conception and execution than those
.we are familiar with in the west. In
tfils way one gets a new apprecia
! tlon of the Orient and becomes more j
1 contented with his present lot. A j
i foreign soldier once told me his i
j philosophy of life In the Orient. Hej
tried to look away to the hills and
i temples and not on the dust and ,
sordldr.ess of the city streets. So j
i youp see I am trying to look off to i
; the hills and the green places "with |
| pleasure withal."

Practical Eye Hints
j Along this line the following j
j suggestions are worthy of note:
! (a) Vertigo, indigestion, Itfsom
j nia, headache, neuralgia, and even
j nervous prostration are often
! caused by eye-strain, and an ex
i pert examination of the eyes
I should figure In the diagnosis of
j such ailments.
(b) One's own visual sensdtions
I cannot always be relied upon to
j indicate the condition of the eyes.
Ability to see gicat distances is
I often a sign of imperfection there
| in: in fact, the farsightedness of
old age is due to the failure of
I efficient action in the crystalline
lens of the eye and the tiny mips
[ clcs that control It.
(e) With advancing years con
ditions In the eye structure change
' more rapidly than in early life,
■ but the eyes should be examined
at least once a year from infancy
(d) Those who wear glasses
should see that they are kept
scrupulously clean at all'tlmcs, as
blurred lenses may cause eye
(e) Prolonged, continuous use
of the eyes should be avoided if
they seem easily fatigued. Tlielr
I demand for proper rest is more
| imperative than that of any other
(f) In reading or working, on©
should never have the light either
in front or behind, nor have it
directed over, the right shoulder.
j To be especially avoided also is
the attempt to read on moving
trains or when walking.
(g) It has been repeatedly
proved that the efltect on "the op
tic nerve of excessive smoking is
'[ a cause of blindness, and more
i often leads to other visual
j troubles.
