I SEES MUMMIES IN FRANCE WHICH WERE PRESERVED BY I USE OF ARSENIC AND LIME iMr. and Mrs. A. J. Aland. 13151 Washington avenue, received a lctterl irom their son. Dr. Albert J. Aland, an officer of the medical corps, A. F F., telling of seeing a huge pile of, rases of Utah tomatoes to be used in i the hospitals '"over there." He also Kivcs an interesting story of hlfl trlD from Franco to America The letter follows . "Savcnay, France. Base Hospital,' 1 March 6th. 1919. "Once more I am assigned for fur- I I ther duty In Franco at this hospital.1 whither i came with groat expectations of being sent home at once. Afterj .'pending only two days in rViigueuX. i torn where I last wroto in you. I was ordered to this place. 1 had a long and tiresome ride in! r cold passonger coach which had about half the windows broken out! and replaced by strips of cardboard. It snowed ami rained nearly all the lime and made the Journej anything but enjoyable. "From rerigueux I went to Bor deaux, one of France's largest sea - J port towns. There are some old ruins there, left by the Romans, and one I saw was Ihe Palais Oallicn which was built before ihe time of Christ. It was a mammoth BtfuctUrtj and made me wonder whether we have advanced much in the line of architecture since those days of two thousand ears ago., Another sight that I shall never forget was 74 mummies in the crylfl of St Michael's cathedral. These were1 not mummies of ihe Fgvptian kind, wrapped, encased, etc . but were simp ly cadavers, absolutely as natural as any could be. in spite of the fact that they were 400 years old. "These peculiar specimens were pi ' V -Pved In arsenic and lime, and had, f- been buried for 30n vears in IJoriieaux before they wore exhumed 100 year? ago and put into the old crypt. Se oral of them show very interesting v idence as to how they died and were: especially interesting to a medical man. From Bordeaux I came north along: the coast lino through La Uochellej Roquefort and thence to Savenay, vrhlch is the larcesi hospital o nw i in e A. E. F. jr., "I must recall a little incident (hat, occurred at N.niilly wlmh I believe I forgot to toll you about, tine da) as 1 was leav ing our hospital to go down J to Faris, my attention was attracted lo a great stack of boxes on the side walk nar (he hospital comniissarv and I .--trolled over to see what the hospital was purchasing in what ap i" ared to be carload lots. Guess what it was. The whole stack was noth ing more than Wood's Cross Brand TomatoeaJ fresh from Ctah to Farls. I nave been on the lookout for some Nigger Boy' brand goods over here, but I guess they are not branded. "Today is Wednesday, the 12th. and I am on'the IT. S. S. Princess Matoika three days out at sea and nearinc the Azores islands on my way to Norfolk.; Va.. U. S. A., where we are exported to debark on the 20tb or Slst. lt seems good tb be on my way back. Three other doctors and 1 are In charge of 198 sick and wounded whom we are bringing home. There aroj also 2800 troops on board who aroi through with Prance. "Yesterday we had quite a battle with the only two elements In this vicinilv. and iho wind and wave, tnss ed our big boat about like a chip of wood. The waves were 25 to 30 feet high and splashed all over the dn ks ' '4'here were some 200 aboard who "fed me fishes' as a result of this slielu disturbance and 1 was feeling prettv i rocky myself but old mother ocean didn't get quite rough enough to per-, suade ine to contribute to the finny tribe. "Today is calm and warm as we are getting pretty well south and I think we ought lo have no more cold wea ther. No doubt I will be assigned to duty in some hospital where I arrive and 1 think most likely it will be to the Walter Rich Memorial hospital. Wash ington. D. C., although I don't know anything detinlte as yet. I wish we, had a boat as swift as the one 1 came over on for I would be home six days; soouer. This boat takes 13 days to cross. It used to he a German boat the Prinrc-s Allee. but was driven into Manila by the British and over- ' hauled b the United States far a tioop transport about a year ago. This is its ninth trip lo France and back. A big Dutch boat, the Rijndam, left' St. Maure about two hours ahead of, us. loaded with troops for home and there were two other bt boats load ing; when we left. Well, I must close for this time. "BERT." I (DARK CORNERS IFF THE PB08LY I FIGHTF.D COUNTY COURT HOF'SE I "Say, partner, is the sun shining out side today or is it snowing or what in Is it doing"" I SpThe above was a remark of a pris i -oner in the county jail yesterday after-1 noon to a Standard representative, who made a trip of inspection through , the jail, for the purpose of verifying I the reports of the ill-lighred and poorly ventilated system in the dark, damp and dismal bastile. The reporter turned t" the speakei and saw a young man, of apparently , rugged constitution, but with a face I as pRle as one jus' getting over a sick I spell. When asked If he was sick, the prisoner remarked: Sy"No, 1 am not sick, but I am suffer-1 ing greater torture in this 'Black Hole of Calcutta' than 1 would if 1 were In dungeon. Every on? of the fellows here gets bleached out like a baby aft r he is here a whil. Wp never see the sun from the time we are brought In here until we are released. You can see how much sun gets in through those windows. Down the north side of ihe cells are three narrow windows, which remind Ohe of the loopholes in the old i,(h toned forts in which the 'blunder bus" protruded in repelling the attack of the Indians The windows opened and a small rav ol light en tered. The prisoners In the cells had their lights burning. If the lights were no', burning in the jail corridor he prisoners would collide v. ith each oth er while exercising In walking down the south side of the cells, the reporter had to light a match to find his waj i- - The cells for the desperate crimi nals are small and very poorly vent I lated. No torture could b greal s that of placing a criminal in one of those cells for thirty days This ward is separate from the main part of the jail. It Is three all-steel cages crowded into a small space. The padded cell and women's ward, prior ro lemodelin? ol a room in the east end of the Jail, was indeed a hole No matter what was the crime1 committed by a woman, she should not be placed in such a cell. It is little wonder that Sheriff Peterson deprived himself of room to make a ward for, the women prisoners. The kitchen department of ihe jail is under two big electric lights all the ! time. There is not a window from the outside in this room. The cooking is done by Mrs. (.'lark, who assured the i reporter that ll was a strain for one to be working under electric light from morning to night.

The big safe at division headquarters is now too small, for it is e rammed with D. S. C.'s from our own general headquarters--one hun dred and ten to date and more on their way." "The Thirty-third division tops nio list of divisions. She captured more prisoners, look more guns and ad vanced over more territory than any . other American division. She cap lured 110 prisoners in one day. The general of the division wears a wound chevron. She is one of the five j American divisions rated by the Ger- mans as helnc flist class."

MOTHER CONDEMNS CENTRAL JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL 1 Editor Standard: I have read most every evi-ninc, in your paper, some thine about the Junior High school. al.su the South Washington school, and Ho condition of those huildinps Kt I Have a . hild In the Central .lunior Hlgh school I, with several other par ients. visited this building, to sec lor I ourselves, if all that had been naid about this school building was true. M first when 1 looked at the out side of this building, the thought came to me that it might be fixed up. to an svver school purposes, for a few more years. But w hen we entered the ! building, and weni through it from top down to he basement, we were a tonished and disgusted, with the con ditions that have existed too long, tor the health and safety of our children And lor me say, that your paper has not told one-half about the terrible condition of this school buildinc II certainly belongs to the dark ages, in more ways than one. FIrsti ii is downright filthy, and the odor that corned up from ihe base ment, and fills every corner of this buildinc. Is disgusting. Second, It Is the worst tue nap that I have ever seen, and the thought came to me: Where Is cmi fire chief and sani tary InspeetOl ' Why do they allow such a condition In our schools .' If I wnc cither one of these off i cei I, and had the power. I would close these schools, and not permit a child to enter them. If a fire -er started In the base ment, ii WOUld be almost Impossible to sav i the lives of the children th 't are in the basement class-room.-. Thoie g only one narrow stairway leadlnc hi from the basement. The floors are oil-soaked, broken and dirty, and I think the basement is not oer eisht or nine feet high. The windows in this basement are only half windows, and it is necessary to use electric lights in the day tlmrt. The lavatories are n lasting disgrace to Ogden. I cannot describe them on paper, you would have .to see them io Understand. They are simply aw in1 Bhren p-ri of this building is thor oughly worn out, and beyond" repair. Instead of calling this building the Central Junior high school they should name it Rip Van Winkle's school. The parents of these children (hat will allow such school buildings as the Central Junior High and Washington schools have surely been asleep, like old Rip. for twenty years or motr. Fathers and mothers of Ogden, wake up. don't he Rip Van Winkles all of your lives. Take an interest in your children, and the schools they atterd, visit these school buildings, and see for yourselves the conditions that sur round your children, and their school life Ieath lurks in these old fire traps, and our little ones are in dan ger. Be up and doing, like the other progressive cities of America, let us have the best schools in Utah. In conclusion, let me say that 1 am a heavy taxpayer of this city, and I am willing to pay still more taxes if it will make better school building and a better Ogden.
