IHE MbSHOBA DEMOCRAT
Subscription: 1.50 a Tear. H. L. RAY Editor and Publisher Entered at the post office at Phila delphia, Miss., as second class mai matter. SOLDIER LETTER Mv dear aunt: 1 returned Tuesday night from the Pyrenees Mountains. 1 stayed at Oauterets seven days. Cauterels is a beautiful little town located in a narrow valley in the Pyrenees Mountains surrounded on all sides, but one, by snow capped mountains. It is on the historical route to Spain, the route through which the Moors invaded France and later the French went into Spain. Oauterets is one of the most famous resorts of the Pyrenees, It is about ten miles from the Spanish border. It has many nice hotels and theater*, a nice swimming pool supplied with natural hot water from a spring in the mountains. One alternoon I went up to the Spanish Bridge, about four miles up in the mountains, on the route to Spain it was quite a climb up the narrow path through the snow, but there were many beautiful eights to be sea'll. 1 went up to the bam of Queen Hortense, the Q teen ot Holland and mother el Nepoleon ill. I wa told that the Queen took re fuge during a stormy night in the small building snd slept in the loft over the herd of sheep. On the sides of the mounsains there are many small farm houses occupied by French peas mt s wh keep small herds of sheep and cittlethat are, in most cases, kept under the same roof with their owners. My partner, \yho c mid spea French very well, and my-elt cai lek atone of the s nail cn-tages, which was built just high enough for a till man to walk under its roof, and without the mentiono r refreshments the kind old lady gave us a glass of milk, wh ch was appreciated as we were tiren from about three hours of climb ing the mountains. On a little farther we stopped to chat with a man who had no relatives living. He was the shepherd of a small herd of sheep and lived alone in a small cottage with his herd of sheep. I wenl over to Lourdes one day, Lourdes is a wonderful city, one of the renowned religeous shrines of France. 1 went through the great ch. thedral, which is one of the mas ter pieces of architect. I went around the brow of cal vary, and I saw the curious Grotto ol the Virgin. > 1 saw the oM fortrea* -that was used for defense of the town be fore the use of gun powder. They have a c-.g-whee| rail road at Lourdes that leads from the town to the top of a moun tain. The cars are pulled up by meabs of a cable. I didn’t as cend this railroad, as it was only a case of adventure an i say time was limited. One of the most interesting (debts at Lourdes was the great Pauoramr, a paintingof the town of Lourdes, as it was in the year 1858, by a French artist. One could hardly realize that he was looking at a painting. Well 1 will close for this time, hope io see all the people back at home come time this summer.' Your loving nephew, Pvt, W illis 0.
