'l'A.T.eri- raine I - Jitr- re.' She is something quite different from what we hae hftn used to fee before the war, ar; entirely new- type of Kir 1, who amid many d ifticu Itie.s, with a Minling f-u e and rn ouratjinK words for everybody. "The American woman whom we used to sec Koint; about in the flue de la I'aix. walking from shop to shop, admiring the exhibitions, of the 'courturiers-,' has disappeared and we can no longer admire her Kohlen hair and hrr smart clothes at the liitz or Colombat or other fashionable tea shops where smart society used to conprrocatii before the war. What we Fee at present and what we admire with a certain respectful wonder, which is com posed of surprise, and awe, is a busy looking, active trirl. dressed in khaki, with palters, a Keneral look of determination about her and a .t expression in her fa'e.

She distributes comforts all around hrr, is at the bottom of every scheme of relief that is started, has alwas pot her numerous pockets full of sweets. Ihbhs and woolen scarfs, with a sweater or two lurking somewhere at the bottom of a practical kind of base she carries about as easily as if she had done nothing else in her life. She ran drive an automobile as well as an experienced chauffeur, she can ride and she can swim. She can werk and she can cook. She has an energetic manner about her that pets the best of dif ficulties before which any one else would rr oil, and that though it often provokes a smile on the part of ta so whom she hustles about Ith Miperl unconcern, yet inspires them with the desire to help her. if only because they want to et rid of her. and of her (what shall I all it'.') importunities is not the word, but entreaties, if such a cour ageous youns person can stoop to 1 1 1 1 eat. "We tall this totally new being, the like of which wo have never seen before. TAnicrieaine de guer l e.' and she it is who now holds the i aciiifnt in our cay Paree.

Her advent has heen a godsend to us. and I doubt hther even American troops, badly as they were wanted, would have be:n reid in France with the enthusiasm which welcomed them if American women and cirls had not already by their behavior excited in our country the the amount of admiration which is be stowed upon tlrcm for all the real help which they have hro' ght us. Without them it is likely that the rescue work that is now going on so energetically in the redeemed provinces could not have progressed In the practical manner it has done; they gi-ve it the impetus which it needed, and the common sense of the 'Amerieaine de guerre saw at once the weak points of an enter prise, the extent of which can hard ly be appreciated by those who are not on the spot to realize how stu pendous it is. "The American woman, having been more used than her French sister to carry the weight of pub li responsibilities, has taken in hand this rescue work with the de termination to see it through, which she is going to do without any fuss and with an energy that awakes wonder in the eyes of the simple French peasants whom she starts o helit to begin over again the work which the enemy destroyed with such ruthlcssness. They stare at her, they admire her. they feel tempted to call her an angel, but if she hears them say so she very quickly Interrupts them, saying. Oh, you must not call me that; I am only "uno Amerieaine de guer re." Atid 'Amerieaine de guerre' she will remain, a new domination of the Xew Hnsland woman, and one of which she ought to feel proud. No other one in the world could have won it." SIX BIG MILLS VE German Owned Plants Valued at $70,000,000 Seized by Government. WASHINGTON. Marcli SO.

J 33 '-HELLO GIRLS" ARE AT ARMY HEADQUARTERS PAHIS. March "0 Thirty-three American telephone girls who speak Knglish and French equally well, have just arrived to operate the switchboards in the various army headquarters. They have been divided between the principal army centers in Paris, Gen. Pershing's headquarters in the field and the headquarters lines of communica tion. American officers have been pleasantly surprised when taking up the telephone receiver to hear the familiar "number please." or "line's busy" instead of the usual French equivalent. Although the- French telephone equipment is not as mod ern as that in America, the girls are fast becoming used to it and officers remark that they already notice an improvement in the telephone serv ice.

National guard troops and po lice finally put down the disorders, but not until after many of the riote.s had received severe injuries at the hands of the police. Numer ous ai rests were made. Street railway company officials tonight withdrew all cars and an nounced attempts would be made tomorrow to furnish normal service with the cars guarded by troops instead of police. At a street car intersection, where ;i crowd estimated at 1,..Oi attacked a car, police guards on the car fired a number of shots, none of which as far ;s was known tonight, took effect. A spiad of guardsmen, reinfoi. d by an armored motor ear r'Ushf d to the scene, soon dispersed the crowd. Outbreaks were report ed in other localities but were put down by the police and troops.
