in France,
Sept. :’«, lalS.
Hear Km and Turner:
Since leaving America 1 have had
many experiences different from any
thing I ever experienced at home 1
wrote you from near Southhampton,
England, at a town know n as Winches
ter. It wa« there that the Chon h of
England was first eslublieheu on a
site now occupied by the handsomest
cathedral in the worldd. 1 will not
conunent on its history ns yoa are
probably an familiar with it ns 1 am. A
part of the original church rating t ront
the lirst century still remains, it was
my pleasure to be shown through the
building bv on" of the Elders it least
he was old enough to ho so called.
1 have since been in dear old l-'ian.e,
a land quite as quaint as ii lias been
pictured to me from childhood. As
yet I am not near the front, but the
next few days will probably see me on
or near it.
From the landing place in France my
com.rany was first sent to a little town
in the heart of the wine district of
France, at a point not previously occu
pied b> American troops. After a t"o
weeks delightful stay, we were trans
ported here. The length of our stay
here is of course lor those higher up
to decide. 1 am read) to move with
my organization any time on any no
tice, tor by now 1 am timer surpris
ed at any move, and stay prepared
I .Our treatment by the English "as
very nice, but somehow they are not
as open and Frank as the French
iThev seem to he more of a haughty,
egotistical people, while the French
have received us with open hands an 1
hearts. When we landed here the de
meanor of the people us compared "ith
the English was at once notlcea’D?,*. 1
foully believe the French love the
' Americans better than the English, ot
'any other nationality, and they have
'wonderful respect for our ability
j Personally 1 love everything ami ev
erybody connected with this country
next to the Fnited States,
j I was fortunate in crossing the oec-n
and the English Channel without sits
ness, particularly the latter, which '■
rough beyond comprehension. Then
i,»k re hundred- of soldiers cross'd
‘ with us. and 1 am safe in saying tiva
r i criii in i in hi i x i
sca-slckness. In all my days I haw
never seen such a filthy s'pot ns tha
f boat when wo landed. After lundin
' j wc wero taken to what they eall
, rest < amp for several days. The "rest
'• part is all a joke, and 1 hope never t
1 see nnother neat a port. They are
I nuisance, \ jumping off place "her
'troops are stationed awaiting tranapor
tation. Its only redeeming feature wa
its location near a large sen-port r
which w e had access.
| 1 will not soon forget my first im
pression of France. We were met o
our way from the boat, 'by two ol
gentlemen having beautiful manner
but limited English vocabulary, an
they welcomed us with a short speen
beautiful, ihough in it was in chai
aeteristic French style At the tint
we were presents! with large boi
quets of roses by the little school gtri
The latter evidenced so plainly the

learned the troops would lie loaded
in box cars, which are hardly half the
size of an American box car. Thirty
five men to each car. Naturally lliev
were packed like sardines, .but 1 af

lie loaded into one of them 'I he of

room in which to sleep. We were

When I stop to consider the differ
ante in the length of time it takes
in traveling over here. 1 marvel at
the superiority of our own country ov
er this. We made one stop for coffee
Ot forty minutes. Other stop- of
short duration, but only to. take on
water. The men's rations were load
ed In their cars, likewise the offic
ers. 11 consisted chiefly of corned
beef, beam, and bread. Fortunately
i ain a demon uir any mil a oi louu
when hungry, (which is often) and ata
the corned beef and hard tack with
relish. K'si.lis show it for 1 am rak

the men slept in their compartments
I don’t know. Personally I nearly
froze to death without any cover ex
cept a rain coat, which fortunately I
carried from t amp l)ix, for all of nyv
clothing except a handling, including
uiy trunk locker ami bedding roll has
.been missing since leaving America,
and I have travelled since only with
a handling and its contents which are
limited. I< at first contained an ex
tra suit of underclothing, pairs of
I socks, one [ air of pajams, and a few
loiiot articles. Somehow I lost the
| underclothes and socks, and until a
I lew days ago used the pajamas for a
change of clothing. The pajamas were
nearly worn out when I started am)
| now are the picture of a sieve, but still
seeing service, for it has been itnpos
jsible to purchase clothing where we
have been.
Our regiment has been separated
nearly all the time, it was re-united

Some arrangements have been mn
between the two governments where

lice regulations ami run the town in

people are very primitive hero, still
wearing wooden shoes, and garb them

costumes elicit as yon often see in
pictures. The soldiers were scattered
all ever own in billots, lly billets 1
mean mostly stables with straw on the
floor. 1 was located ui a place almost
a castle, which until the war, wa.
Owned by a wealthy Herman wine
■dealer. He raised worlds of grapes
and made ex< client wine as I soon dis
covered. After Aar was declared it
was learned that he was a Colonel in
the Herman army and had made- his
escape three days previous to the out
break of war. He was active as a
spy in France as a search or his effects
disclosed he had everything pertain
ing to espionage.
The lack of men here Is very notice
able as in all French towns. Those
you see are either extremely old, or
arc wounded soldiers, and tlte women
in the rural districts are nearly ail

loft Saliguac in another downpour n{

Everybody wet and tired. On the tram
overnight 1 again was cold, sleepy arid
tired and unable to rest My exper
ience to now teaches me that this is
I indeed a very Inconvenient war. With
plenty of work, and likewise plenty
J to eat, we all bated to leave Saliguac.
I The beds for the officers were the best
II have seen since leaving home. These
French people always have good beds.
Also I do not want to forget tnetr
drinks. Cognac is the center of the
Cognac brandies, anti the wine dis

I wine like we do water, and it is seldom

On October loth, th> Public Util

mailing bills and esta lisliei three
(i!) different periods for each month.
It is obvious that with three (if)
mailing periods and three uii pay
ment periods for different portions
of the city, viz 10th, 22th, ar.d ;!(lth,
there would not be the rush and
overwork in the office force, and
avoid the great rush of payments at
one period.
It has bpen thp custom to send out
all bills on the last day of thp month
although many meters are read early
in the month and the bills held over
until the last day and all sent out at
one time.
Consequently many hills paid from
the first to the tenth do not cover
file entire nrpvinns month With II:.,
present system, bills will be made to
cover the period much nearer to the
date of payment. We trust o ir pa
trons will aid us In this change.
