KALINOWSKI BELGIUM 8ÜFFEBE0 - , . . , . ,, 1 ., . !n his eighteenth letter to The Star-Mirror from the war zone of Europe Congressman Burton L. Prench tells his impressions of the wrongs done to Belgium and France. His letter follows: Brussels, Belgium, Apr. 11, 1919. The Editor The Star-Mirror; Belgium shows the scorge of war and yet it was visited upon her in such a way as will permit of more prompt recovery than France. Many of her cities were destroyed and her territary for the most part was oc cupied by Germans for fous years, yet except in the southwestern part, her territory was not a constant bat tie field as was the northern part of France, and aside from in this region, I LESS IHM FfMNGE CONGRESSMAN FRENCH VISITS BRUSSELS AND TELLS OF DEVASTATION THERE Good Farm Lands For Sale Cheap tt you wish to purchase a first class wheat, stock or dairy ranch at a reasonable price, write us Good Climate Good Market Good Productive Soil For reference inquire of John A. Nisbet, Dufur, Oregon, formerly of Genesee, Idaho. il DUFUR VALLEY REALTY CO. DUFUR, OREGON for the most part military operations were comparatively short, even, though they were desperately severe. Belgium is a small country about one-eighth the size of Idaho, and witjjx a population of 8,000,000 people. We drove over some four or fiw hun dred miles of her roadways,'and'saw not only her farming lands but her great cities and her regions that suf fered most by the war. We were in Brussels and Antwerp, beautiful and splendid old cities which show noth ing of war's ravages. We also vis it< f d Charleiôr Dinout, Mons, Namur, Louvain Malines, Termonde, Ghent, B ZeBroges, Ostende, and other o-.im to pun ishment " d s terrine punisnmenu At the beginning of the war it was the undoubted policy of the German military power to endeavor to bring the war to an end in the shortest possible time by making it as hideous 'and terrible as possible. Louvain and Malines and Dinout and other lesser cities were ruthlessly treated as a warning to Brussels and Ant Iwerp, and to throw terror into the souls of the Belgian people. Facto ries and other business houses were reduced to ashes; chu rches, schools , and, hemes were wrecked and pillag ed Jimd the The Problem of reconstruction is the serious work that is now ahead. With a population so dense, a slight disturbance of business works harm, and such havoc as befell all Belgium during the war must claim time to right again. For instance at Charle roi we found a city of some fifteen or twenty thousand people before the war in ruin. In and around the city were steel mills. We visited the ruins of one of them. It had been built at a cost of $3,000,000. It fur nished employment to between two and three thousand men. Near by non resisting civilian ..vivvMation were in city alter city vls Jieci with untempered punishment in pii attempt to break the spirit of Belgium and as a sign to the world of what might be expected from the despotic, military, autoerocy of Ger many. But the invader has been expelled and the Belgian people are happy. Not only are they happy but they are grateful to America for our part in .he war and for the relief work in which we were engaged in Belgium before our declaration of two years " 0 . such institutions. The coal mines near by employed some five or six thousand men. The coal mines here were not badly damaged but who would buy coal? Who could buy? Who could buy the butter, the eggs, the garden products, the meat, the foods of all kinds produced upon the farm ? Who could buy and pay for these things ? Who could employ la bor and what is the first thing that was not paralysis. True the people are poor, they are very poor, but i they are trying to do team work, j They seemed to be patient. At the I old mill site a limited number of men were at work. Salvaging such things ; as might be of value and cleaning I away the debris. 1 As I see it, in spite of all that can j be done the work of rebuilding Bel ! g'ium and Europe as well, must be j slow. People will need to feel their j way, and day by day a few more men j will find employment than were em I ployed the day before. A s this pro ! ceeds, times will gradually become ! normal. But It will take time, j Years? Yes, in some lines. In the Î meantime the world and especially ! the countries that have suffered least ! and whose lands have not been invad- j I ed must be sympathetic and patient. : Even in those countries times will be ! hard, no doubt, but we will attain the most by being calm, by refusing to rock the boat, and by maintaining that splendid spirit of self sacrifice and earnestness to bear part of the world's burden that have been char acteristic of the American people for the last four years. Very truly, BURTON L. FRENCH. J BAPTIST REVIVAL ON ITS LAST WEEK EVA > G EU ST MARSHALL ('LOSES MLS WORK I> MOSCOW -NEXT SUNDAY E VENIN«; The attendance came up again Tues day night and the people were at tentive as usual to the evangelist. The text was from the T19th Psalm and 59-60 verses. "Here we find a man thihking, turning and rdnning," said Dr. Marshall as he announced his subject. "The greatest book for you is the one you are writing, your own life. The greatest drama for you is that of your own life. A man at the station in a California town shook his fist at me and asked me why his wife had told me of his domestic af fairs. He said 1 had pointed him out in the service and said that he had no rest at night and his life was in a turmoil. I persuaded him I re ally knew nothing of his affairs. He was thinking on his own life and uin 1 and I saw him in that meeting find Christ and joy of heart." One of the really fine exhibitions of description came last night when Dr. Marshall de scribed a southerner whose wife was a Christian and who always delighted to get ministers into trouble with his clever questions. Dr. Marshall dares him to church and the man is saved. Not, however, by the evangelist's ser mon. He gets to thinking what an un worthy husband and father he is. "But thinking on your ways will not save you," cried the evangelist. "Div ies in hell put up a fine system of thinking. And you may occupy the chair of history in the University of 'Idaho and yet go to hell. You must turn from your evil ways. Conversion is the turning. But that is not regen eration.. Kegeneration is God's answer ot a new heart when yon have turned right about face. Some folk turn all right and keep on turning and never miss a service for the devil. Then some turn their feet toward the way of the Lord but they keep their faces looking back to the evil things of the world. Then there are other peo ple who never turn their feet in the right way but they look in the right direction and they never get any where. The divine son of God, the Savior of the world has the sure rem edy for sin. Surrender to Him. Dr. Marshall speaks tonight upon | "Crutches and Canes." Service at 8 o'clock. P ^ Do Your Best. Everyone should do all he can to provide for his family and in order to do this he must keep his physical system in the best condition possible. No one can reasonably hope to do much when he is sick a good share of the time. If you are constipated, bilious or troubled with indigestion get a package of Chamberlain's Tab lets and follow the plain printed di rections, and you will soon be feeling alright and able to do a day's work.
