!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

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

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 ,

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

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

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

ON ITS LAST WEEK

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.

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.
