A Wisconsin woman, just returned from Germany, writes to the New York Tribune on conditions there: "If the Gsrmans here don't like America let them go back to Germany where the poor people live like swine. It took me three years to save enough money to get to this country, and I had to borrow a little then to get a ticket for the trip. The people there wear wooden shoes, held on by a strap across the top, and I wore a pair when 1 came here; but I saved enough out of my first week's wages to buy a pair if leather ones. That was more than I could save in a month in Germany They live like hogs over there, whole families tn two small rooms where they dress and undress before each other. It seemed like heaven when I got to America and had a room all to myself. Germany is the worst place in the world for a person to live, and I would us soon be in hell this minute as to go back where I came from in Germany." Hp We are surely having winter this time.
