American Women.
Tbo story comes from Paris thnt

There are women over here, howev
er, writes a fashion correspondent,
recently returned from Paris, who are
wearing the most curious veil America
Ims seen. It Is attached to a. turban ;
It Is ns thlek as the heaviest course

tight around the eyes and the top of
t!m nose, leaving the neek and lower
part of the faro bare. It Is tbe best

of the face. One of our own design

genuine Influenza mask of dyed lace
which Is drawn upward over the chin

or not at all ; and, secondly, It Is not a
good addition to uniform caps. So the
veil dropped out. except among a cer
tain segment of fashionables who
would feel ashamed of their naked
ness, as they say, If they went wllli
mit It. The hurry and flurry of life
has not allowed much time for leisure

Insisted upon hy the shops during the
Influenza epidemic, the doctors thought
It was extremely harmful and Injuri

dently did not know, that an Influenza
mask must be washed every three
hours In a disinfectant. The

fact that It was not washed for days

r Is an odd coincidence that the ! in
most modern occurrence In Prus-1
•cuputlon hy American
troops—should begin with Its old- '
est city, observes a writer In the Kan- \
sas City Times. Treves, or Trier, as
the Germans call It, Into which the
Yanks marched recently, is older than
history, which begins for It hulf a cen
tury before the birth of Christ. Then,
as the capital of Ihe Celtic Trevlri,
one of the most powerful Belgian
tribes, It was captured hy the Romans
under Julius Ciiesiu'. It was made a
Roman colony under the name of Au
gusta Trevlrormn and was
fortified. By 14 B. C. It. hud become
the most Important northern outpost
of the Roman empire. It was an Im
perial resilience early In the Christian
era and the administrative center from
which Gaul. Britain und Spain were
ruled. The poet Ausonlus described It
as "Rome beyond the Alps." Constan
tine the Great lived there about twen
ty-live years. Ho and his successors
beautified It with public works and
magnificent private villas dotted the
hillside all around. Some of the finest
Roman relics north of the Alps re
main to this day In Treves.

Treves had a bishop at a very early
dale. Four great saints of the fourth !
century are connected with the $tt.v.
It was the scene of the first banish
ment ot St. Athanasius; St. Ambrose !
was born there; St. Jerome first he- ]
came svrlously Interested In religion !
while studying there, and St. Martin of
Tours went there In 885 to plead with ;
the tyrant Maximus for the lives of the
heretic l'rlscllllan and Ids followers. :
The gieat bishop, St. Nloetlus, built a
splendid castle for himself at Treves
In the sixth century. The see became
an archbishopric soon after the begin- j
nltig of the ninth century and its tern

Radbod acquired the rights of the
counts of Treves. Throughout tho
middle ages the city abounded In »e*

changés for Treves. The city passed
to Lorraine In 843 and to the east
Frankish kingdom in S70. It was sack
»»I by the Northmen In 881 after It had
become a permanent part of what Is
now Prussia. It became a free city
toward the close of the sixteenth cen
tury. The French held it briefly three
Imes In the seventeenth century and
Changed Hands Many Times.
With the transfer of the Frankish
in 17IH captured it again and abolished
the archbishopric.
The i'ongress of
Vienna in 1814-1815 gave it back to
Prussia. It figured several times In
the war Just closed, being bombarded

The modern city of Treves occupies
almost the exact site of tin* undent
town. It nestles picturesquely In the
valley of the Moselle river and Is sur
rounded by hills covered with the vine
yards from which comes the famous
Moselle wine. The newer section con
tains broad streets and modern build
lugs. The streets in the old part are
narrow and crooked. The Porta Ni
gra, an enormous fortified gateway,
was built hy the Romans,
southeastern part of the city is the
palace of the Roman kings, now a pic
turesque mass of ruins. In the south
