Carl Perisho, at the bat tle front in France and It seems that he was in the same squadron 1th Quentin Roosevelt; when the latter came to hie death. A Parle, Illinois, newspaper refers fro Perish o's Intimacy with young Roosevelt as follows: Mr. and Mrs. John P. Perisho, of West Madison street, some days ago received a letter from their son, who Is In the aviation service "over there." Judging from the tone of the missive Roosevelt ' and , Perisho were members of the same squad ron. They had been on air raids and combats together. It is believ ed from all the crcumstances that the last fight mentioned Is the one where the son of the ex-presldent lost Jils life. The story goes, the squadron to which the two were attached had been on a raid behind the German lines. They had accomplshed their object and were heading for home Roosevelt circled about his com rades and headed back into the dan genous territory. He was never seen again by his friends. According to the best informa tion at hand he body of the fallen airman was burled near Soissons This city was then in the hands of the enemy and regarded as one of their most Important points The whlrlagig of war has turned again and this city with its blood drenched streets s now in the hands of the Allies. As a gentleman remarked Satur day, it Is a little more than possible that) If Col. Roosevelt was awaYe that a chum of his son resided In Paris and had written concerning him that he would lose no time In coming and calling on Mr. and Mrs. Perisho to hear from their own Hps the impressions gathered from Wio letters written by their son.

I - , A council of on the lines of defense Our lines of defense embrace rv.uch more than so many hundred thousands of boys in kh?.!j, armed with the im plements of war. They really embrace the whole man power, woman power and child power of the United States of America. We must never lose heart or we would lose all. That is why such stress is laid on the necessity for maintaining the morale of the people through the mighty struggle. To do this effectively we must have accurate and reliable information on every phase of the war. We must often take inventory of our strength, physical and spiritual. We must snatch up every legitimate diversion that will rest our nerves and build our natures into stronger. producing plants. That is the Mission of Chautauqua It deals intelligently with the war at the front, the work of the Red Cross, food conservation and the lines of defense at home.

It was built In sections by several different rulers, so one sees the several styles of architecture in vogue during differ ent periods of French history. You will see the crude, rough earlier style, the ornate, flowery style of the renaissance, the stern beauty of the Doric school of a later period.
