PABIS C0L0&ED SOLDIER WEITES One of the many interesting let ters that have 'come overseas lately is the one that is printed below, re ceived by Mr. , Phil Nippert, of the Paris Ice Manufacturing Co., from Robert Cromble, colored, a former employe of the plant. Crombie is now a member of Co. A., 515th Engineer Service Battalion, American Bxpedi tionar Force. ,A memorandum from the censor who passed the letter is written on the back of the last page, as follows: "Dear Sir: Would suggest this as an ideal letter for a newspaper arti cle. The same plainly shows the at titude of the colored boys toward the war. It should be consoling to many parents and relatives. "CO. A. CENSOR." Crombie's letter is couched in well chosen language, and gives an insight into' affairs in France, as far as is possible to escape the eagle eye of the censor. The letter, which is dated June 28, is aV follows: "June 28, 1918. "Mr. Philip Nippert, "Paris Ice Mfg. Co. "Dear Sir: Had promised to write to you, so I am taking this time to do it. Of course I have been a little negligent -in doing so, but in no way have I forgotten the friend of my past employment. - Was a great deal sur prised in my conception, of France and its inhabitants, from what I can already see of her. Her indus tires are all of ancient time, no mod ern inventions whatever. I must say the bicycle has won fame as a means of conveyance. They fall for them more than the American does for the auto.

The only thing is, I get a little lonesome at times, and not only I, but the whole battalion. This is a pretty good place to freshen up your medieval and ancient histories, that is if all look at as I do. I dare say this is why some of us can find some thing interesting when other can't, and of course' they do likewise.

A great bunch ar rived lately, and a few were ex-employes of yours, I am sure, such as Fields Whaley and John Bots. A very young bunch, I mean from home. They belong to the Quartermaster's Corps.

"Mr. Phil, I am taking great pleas ure in writing" to you and it is my sincere desire that you find it inter esting, although the things that I would call interesting are forbidden by the military censors. Everywhere in France you can easily see the ef fects of this war, not only by devas tation of property, but by depriving most families of their male providers, and I dare say if it had not been for the reciprocal debt that America owed her, and as America felt justi fied in paying her, she would have long been whipped or vanquished.

Letters from American prisoners of war show that most of them depend exclusively on the food furnished them by the War and Navy Depart ments through the American Red Cross at Berne, Switzerland. The American prisoners of other nations, are not so well provided for, the rations furnished by the prison camps. Dr. William P. Lucas, who has just returned to Rrance to resume charge of the infant welfare work of the American Red Cross has in France a staff of seventy doctors, two hundred trained nurses, and many aides and social workers about 700 in all. PARIS Constant bombing of hos pitals at B , has compelled the American Red Cross to secure a cha teau six miles from town so that nurses can get enough sleep, accord ing to a report just received at head quarters. Loss of sleep the report indicates has been one of the most serious results of these air raids as far as the nursing force is concern ed. The nurses have refused to al low" the attacks to affect their morale and some of them are mentioned as having continued to administer ether calmly and undisturbed throughout one of the most persistent of the night air raids. The Chateau, which is used also as a dormitory by the J Smith College Unit, is far enough out to be fairly immune from bombing. The inspectors state that it is a god send to the overwrought and tired nurses who when not on duty can rest undisturbed. m fe PALERMO, ITALY. It is the aim of all. the ouvroirs, or sewing-rooms x)f the American Red Cross through out Italy to cut the patterns of the garments made with as little waste as possible, but it is the boast of the ouvroir at Palermo that after their expert cutter has finished with a Bolt of cloth, there is hardly a scrap an inch square left. Three or four girls, daughters of soldiers at the front, are employed at the ouvroir stuffing rag dolls with the threads and edges carefully gathered in the cutting room. These little girls then make a dress for each doll and when there is a sufficient number they are given to the babies at the creche, or nurs ery, jid to the sick children at the trillion, who are receiving medical attention.

The dinner provided by the householders of the family was served on the lawn of the old home, and, while elaborate, con formed entirely to the regulations of the food administration. The reunion, which has become a fixture in the life of the family, was marked this year by the reading of a history of the Shropshire . family by Mrs. Willie Shropshire Waits, of Cynthiana. In the preparation of the document she was assisted by Isaac C. Shropshire. A remarkable fact in connection with the reunion was that there has been 'but one death in the whole family since the reunion held one year ago.

Shropshire, of Harrison county, pres ident; Walter Henderson Shropshire, of Bourbon county, secretary and treasurer; Mrs. Willie Shropshire Waits, of Harrison county, historian, and Isaac Shropshire, of Cynthiana, assistant historian.

When the new Presbyterian church in this city is dedicated in the very near future, it will not find a cent in debtedness resting upon it, which will be a matter of great congratu lation to the members of the congre gation and to the officers of the church. At the meeting held in the new church building for the first time Sunday financial matters pertaining to the future welfare of the church were taken up, and pledges and money contributions were taken amounting to a total of $10,200, be ing ?200 in excess of the sum re quired to wipe out the indebtedness. With the exception of the motor for operating the big pipe organ, which has been lost or miscarried in transit, the church is completed and in readiness for regular services.. It is one of the handsomest ' chuf-eit'. homes in the State, a credit to the community and an ornament to the immediate vicinity where its prede cessors have weathered the storms of years and years, and where hundreds of dead and gone Parisians have wor shipped for years before their sum mons came to join the silent majority in the Great Beyond. tss pa AUTOS POR SALE.
