Eijrhth ictttT. Dear Editors: I sent home a card to a French friend saying I had seen all of Paris in less than an hour, adding from the Eiffel tower. This wonderful struc ture is 984 feet high and from its top one has a grand view, or I had better say a microscopic view, of the great French city, for jhtsoiis appear like flies in size and the Seine like a ribbon. We visited St. Augustine, in front of which is a statute of Joan D'Arc, also the Pantheon on whose walls are paint ings of the heroic character thad led the French into battle and was after wards burned at the stake. In tho basement of the Pantheon lie preserved the remains of noted men of the na tion, as Victor Hugo. The Madeleine, with its huge pillars on tho front and sides, is an interesting structure and one which Napoleon had intended to convert into a Templo of Reason, but it is used for worship still. Of course Notre Dame is the famous church edifice of Paris and it is a great privilege to see such a piece of archi tecture and its beautiful windows and chapels. In the center of the Champs Elysee the great open space where hundreds of vehicles and automobiles cau be seen in a short while Hying hither and thith er an Egyptian obelisk stands just where Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette, and others were beheaded. , We also visited Napoleon's tomb, a dome-like structure The marble sar cophagus containing his remains is kept in a hollowed out place and is viewed by gazing on it from above. In the rear of the building are windows which transmit a flood of golden light, giving an entrancing effect. We also took in the art galleries, Louvre and Luxembourg and Petit Palais. What paintings and marvel ous productions of the brush and tho chisel! I believe I admired ftiost the sculpture in Luxembourg, for hero it seems that marble is made to live. Tho trouble is that there is so much to see and so little time to see the hundreds of paintings that it fairly makes one's head swim. One of the most wonderful buildings in this city of wonderful sights is the (Jrand Opera House, one of tho finest, if not the finest, in the world. It has. a spacious hall for promenading between the acts and exerything is finished in the finest of style. We had the pleas ure of attending when "Sampson and Delilah" was given, and it was a most charming production. There were 80 in the orchestra and it can be imagined that in this center of art and in the building, of which the government is sponsor, tho melody ami singing and acting was as good as they get. On August 25 we visited Versailles, where the seat of the government was under Louis XIV, XV and XVI and Napoleon. We arrived just in time to witness the funeral procession of a Gen eral, and gorgeous affair it was. Wo were taken by our guide through tho richly furnished palace of the onco fa mous kings, over the gardens that are a feast for the eyes to look upon, to Tri anon and the country home of Mario Antoinette and the royal stables, where we saw the golden carriages in which royalty once rode. One of the strange things about Pa risian life is that at the table one kind of food is served and eaten at a time. Wine is drank at meals just as Ameri cans do coffee and the Germans do beer. One going from a country of skyscrap ers to Paris is surprised to see that their buildings are seldom higher than six stories, and this is true of all Euro pean cities. Instead of street cars on nearly every street, ns we have them in our largo cities, they have busses that run along a certain route. Cabs and automobiles are very cheap because ono pays according to the record on tho meter. There are some things our European neighbors can learn from us, but it is just as true that there are some things we can learn from them. The cities and villages, especially the villages, are cleaner than ours and the people are more respectful and courteous to tho stranger. The children are more obedi ent to their parents and pay respect to those in authority. There is also a higher regard paid to those in author ity by the citizens. We left Paris August 28 for Havre, where we took tho La Provence at 3 p. m. of the same day for New York. The first few days were rough, but after that we had nice sailing. We also had fine food, splendid music and tho interest ing game of "frog." I beat everybody on board pitching the disc into tho frog's mouth. We arrived in New York Saturday, Sept. 4, at 9 p. m. and at 12:03 mid night left for St. Louis, where we land ed Monday morning, sept. 6, shorter in shekels, but strengthened in body and enriched in mind. Yours truly, L. O. LASLiESHEKOfeR. St. Louis, Mo, Nov. 14.
