I know your father very well, and I saw him and he asked me to look you up at Camp Johnjton when I got back off leave, but when I arrived back there I could not locate your company. I was located at Camp Johnston for ever four months. I ika aama time that. .IU(I Brumley and Albert Susong did, but I suppose they went to Texas while I went to Comp Johnston. Hoping that you will get home toute de suite, and if my organiza tion comes back through Brest, and if you are still there, I will try and locate you.

Dear Sergeant: Received your letter referring to mine that appeared in our paper, and was very glad to hear from one of the home boys and get their ideas about France. I will have to confess that I was a little of on sonif y of the conditions here in France, for the simple reason that I hadn't seen Southern France at the time that I wrote Mr. Myers, although I had been in practically every city between Brest and Coblen, Germany. Since I have had the opportunity to visit some of the Southern cities, I have changed my opinion entirely, and will gladly offer my apologies and agree with you that France is a very beau tiful country, especially the southern part. But as to the garden spot, I can hardly give it that here, as I be lieve that place lies in the valley of the little mountain back in old Ten nessee. You may wonder just how I came to see as much of this country as I have. Well, I was on convoy with the ice and cold storage pant that is located at Geivres, France, for a per iod of six months, convoying meats to all the rail heads and hospitals that are located near the lines, and when the armistice was signed we contin ued to go further up the lines until at last we got to Coblenz. The hrst of last month I was granted a class B leave to Italy for twenty-one days On this trip I was at Dijon, Lyons, Marseills, Nice, Vintimille; from here I went to Genova, Rome, Naples, Florence and Venice, crossing the Adriadic sea to Treste and coming back to Venice by way of the battle fields. From here I proceeded to Mi lani and Toreno, making my last stop in Modan before I entered France. I also saw a great deal of the Alps, which certainly credit Switzerland with a lot of beauty. On my way back to Paris I stopped off at this place for the seventh time, so you can see that I have had some chance to change my opinion of France, espec ially the Southern part. But we cant not give France credit for all of her beauty she claims in her Southern - territory. If you will call to mem ory for a few minutes, you will agree "with me that practically all of her Southern beauty is controlled . and Winners and Victims In Great Auto Race Winner Howard Wilcox : time 5:45:21.75; average, 87.12 miles prize, $20,000..

German news papers are commenting more and more upon the alleged fact that the full peace terms have not as yet been published in an entente country, say ing that, on the contrary the German eague of nations has issued the com plete text in German, French and English, with a map showing the German territory to be ceded, and is giving it widest circulation. The newspapers declare that the publica tion of the treaty ext is especially curtailed in France, where the Ger man replies and answering notes are also said to have been suppressed by the censor. It is claimed that methods have been resorted to "conceal the severi ty of the terms from the entente peo ples and deprive them of the oppor tunity to judge of the aptness and justice of the German counter claims." patterned after Italian and Spanish ideas, making it a large field for ar gument, but we will not start any arguments or cause any harsh feel ings. As I have just stated I am more tha nready to apoogize to the whole of France for my misrepresen tation o her beauty. I must agree that she has it, but at the same time give credit to the people that fur nished the modern ideas through which she got her beauty. If you ever get a chance to visit Italy, and I hope you will, you will see that I am right; you will realize that the beauty of southern France belongs to Italy. For instance, picture Bar- ettz, which in the estimation of the, Frenc hpeople is the most beautiful place in the world. Do the majority of these people talk the French dia lect? Do they use their customs? Do they take pride in keeping their hors es and their cows in their houses? Take France from all sides; she is just what other people make her. You say that here in Brest that my ideas are right. Well, why shouldn t hey be. They have no one to pat tern from or to furnish ideas. It is hardly so much the lack of ideas as it is of ambition. But of the Bel gian, Spanish, Italian, Swiss and others, she has beauty because here there are people with ambition; peo- ole that resemble home folks; people that look forward to a future. In other words France is just what peo ple have made her, and nothing more. I don't want you to get offended at anything that I have said in regard to this country, but want you to write and give me some more of your ideas about this place. If you should hap pen to come through this place on your way home, leek me up, and we will compare our ideas together, and in this way we can perhaps go back to the states with a better opinion.

RECONSTRUCTING EVERY STATE TAKING HAND IN MOVEMENT TO GET BACK TO BUSINESS OF PEACE. WASHINGTON, June 2. (United Press.) Reconstruction movements, now in full swing in every state, cover every conceivable ang:e of the prob le mof getting the nation back into peace time form, according to a sur vey begun soon after the armistice by the National Council of Defense. Governors, mayors, state legisla tures, churches, boy scouts, cham bers of commerce, volunteer work ers and civic bodies arc co-operating in plans to insure a square deal for demobilized soldiers arc get the fac tories humming again. No state failed to figure in the survey. Alaska, too, is helping, by offering to place 3,000 demobilized soldiers in jobs as ter.chers, clerks and watch men. A great mass of information that fills yards of filing cabh cts piled ceil ing high has been collected by the defense council describing the state projects. Collected and edited for early publication, the information for some states fills hundreds of pages. Most projects aim at getting sol diers on the land ac farmers and help ers. For this work the Colorado legis lature appropriated ;T25,000, to be spread over a period of 20 years. The money will be administered by a board which wae given-$25,000 to pend in assisting soldiers to take ad vantage of the offer during the first two years. Similar appropriations ara now being considered by legis latures of other states. An appropriation of $5,000,000 is provided for loans to demobilized soldiers in a bill introduced into the Iowa legislature. Under the bill no soldier could borrow more than two thousand dollars, anv especial pro- ision was made to encourage mar ied soldiers to take advantage of the offer. Reasonable time and terms are provided for return of the funds. Denver is one of several cities now in the midst of campaigns to "own- vour-own-home" and help reopening if building activities. One form of reconstruction work connected with Americanization pro- ects is exemplified in New Bedford, Mass., where cotton mlliers organized o teach English to all foreign-born esidents. Boy Scouts are planning to help. Michigan and Ohio were among the irst of the many states that called reconstruction congresses. Women are represented equally with men on GENERAL EXODUS ; STARTS IN MEXICO LAREDO, June 2. A general ex odus from various parts of Mexico nto the United States of America and prominent Mexican families is in progress as a result of disturb ances throughout Mexico, according to reports reaching here. Refugees arriving here say Ange- lus. and Villa s revolutionary move ment is gaining ground and that se rious outbreaks in various parts of Mexico are feared.

Governor Cox stole a move on the Ohio congress by personal letters to 160 mayors asking their help in cre ating a $1,000,000 fund to public works to give work to the unem ployed. Twenty-five Ohio cities now have Americanization programs. Job canvassing for returning sol diers was begun early in New York city, where merchants' associations combined to canvass all manufactur ers and list openings. Oregon's leg islature, as one of many after-the- war measures, passed a bill prohibit ing the use, not only in public, but in private schools as well, of any language except English in general instruction. The bill, however, is not intended to prevent the teaching of any needed foreign language. Pennsylvania's legislature appro priated $50,000,000 for road build ing to make work for unemployed. Erie, Pa., undertook a building stim ulation campaign and in Philadelphia a poster movement was begun to warn against selling War Savings Stamps below their face value. Sev eral brokers, it was found, were en couraging such sales. The Memphis, Tenn., chamber of commerce voted $1,800 to be used in a campaign to get jobs for sol diers. Texas, among many other recon- strucfion movements, initiated one in- tendedto "get the children back to j Ser(tcant Knecht's orchestra and the scno1-" iboys were a ttheir best.

In California, 6,000 community ; eouncile have been organized to hunt jobs for soldiers. A $20,000,000 road bond issue is being discussed, although several million dollars al ready is available for this work. Seven hundred persons joined a club to stimulate foreign trade or ganized by the Los Angele:; chamber of commerce. A big Americanization campaign was begun early in '.rizona, where! 100,000 are foreign-born out of a population of 325.000. Women's reconstruction commit tees are being organized in some of the southern states to give especial attention to child welfare. n;.ll T.;A 1 1 ! To Come Back I LONDON, June 2 (By the United !

The Sunday school at this place has made a move to purchase a new organ for its use and for the church, as the old instrument does not con tinue to give entire satisfaction. Most of our farmers are getting their corn crop in good shape, look ing to the near approaching harvest. Wheat in this section will be some what inferior to what was expected. W. B. Simpson was in our locality last week looking after wool and lambs. Calculations are that the piking of the road between Wm. Knipp's and Little Chuckey will be com menced next week, and it is under stood that this road will not be com pleted all the way through. If this be so, it will greatly disadvantage much travel, as this road is one of the most traveled cross country roads in this section of the county. An all day singing is planned to be held at St. Joseph's Chapel, near Midway, on the fourth Sunday in this month, and all the singing classes which are convenient are invited to attend and take part. Your scribe goes to Greeneville this a. in. to serve as a member of the equalization board. Quite a number from this section anticipate witnessing the Tusculum commencement.

But that'e because Maud never yet Has let her costume chic get wet She takes great care That just her hair Alone is in a wave. NEW YORK, June 2. Even a Paul Swan or a Ted Shawn aren't anything to be mad about in a bath ing suit, and yet the male sex taken in toto and in surf attire seems to just dote upon itself. Portly diplo mate love to be snapped up before and after taking a dip and elderly heads of corporations in the groups pictured on society sands for the Sunday supplements. With the laving ladies its a differ ent matter. A woman doesn't have to be an Anette Kellerman to look well in a bathing suit, provided of course she doesn't insist on wearing an Annette Kellerman costume. If the costume be pretty,, it little mat ters if the maid be plain, if she has wisely chosen one adapted to her fig ure or her lack of it. That's the whole secret in a seashell. Egotistic man, supremely confident of his own natural charms, casts off his tailor completely and be he a perfect 36 or an imperfect 60, aged 21 or 51, he dons the self-same bathing model. Whereas wise woman fastens her faith as always to her dressmaker and fastens her bathing suit with the knowledge that she is a charming figure on the sands of these times. To taffeta or jersey cling the smartest mermaid this season, or rather the taffeta and jersey clings to them in the shape of cunning lit tle flounced and puffed and ruffled little bathing suits, if they be taffe ta, and straight-hung one piece af fairs if they be of other stuff. A stunning marine blue taffeta model whose abbreviated skirt is just one scalloped ruffle after another, each scalloped piped in vivid green, has a surplice waist, scalloped edge, and just an outlining of the scallops around the arm holes. A quaint taf feta hat with a broad scalloped brim, green edged tops of the deep sea picture. Like a hula hula maid, will be the bather who affects the jersey suit of Copenhagen blue, its straight lines bound by deep argane fringe around the skirt, arm pits, and oval neck. An amicable agreement between the Chinese and Japanese is evi denced by the Chinese blue bathing suit, cut after the long trousered and hh length coated fashion of a Chinese girl's u.-.ual apparel. A touch of black and scarlet embroidery fin ishes the sleeves, edges of the coat and high close buttoned collar and frogs of black and scarlet fasten the coat. A dashing scarlet and Japa nese parasol and a perky little blue and black cap splashed with a scarlet tassel completes the novelty in bath ing attire. As aways the black taffeta or black and white costumes are dear favorites and this year they are brought up to date with vivid touches here and there of yarn embroidery or fringe. Large figured foulards in blue and white, black or white or more hec tic eolorings strike the newest note's in the season's bathing modes. In deed they strike so loud a note that the deep sea fish will have to learn to swim with their fins over their ears The stunning cape mantles, to be cast aside only at the water's edge, ate usually of one-toned material whose surface is broken by appli qued or embroidered hieroglyphics in the form of cryptic monograms and always the linings are most vivid ly ornate. P'ringe now spouts effec tively on some of the bathing man- I am Sincere! Stop Calomel! I Guarantee Jtodson's Liver Tone Listen to me! Calomel sickens and you may loee a day's work.

''FAKE" ASPIRIN WAS TALCUM Therefore Insist Upon Gen uine "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin" - Millions of fraudulent Aspirin Tablets were sold by a Brooklyn manufacturer which later proved to be composed mainly of Talcum Pow der. "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin," the true, genuine American made and American owned Tablets, are marked with the safety "Bayer Cross." Ask for and then insist upon "Bayer Tablets of Aspirin" and al ways buy them in the original Bayer package, which contains proper direc tions and dosage.

Bailey and wife are at tending commencement at Maryville College this week, where their daugh ter, Miss Grace Bailey, graduates. Born, to Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Kel ley, last week, a son. Mother and child are doing well, but Bob is in a precarious condition. Mrs. R. D. Keller of Strahl, spent the week end here, returning home Monday. Mr. Preston Walters, wife and son, returned to their home home in Knoxville Sunday after spending a week with Mr. and Mrs. G. R. Wal ters. Mr. John Hawkins arrived home from Philadelphia, Saturday, and is spending a while with his mother, Mrs. Mary E. Hawkins, on route No. five. , Dr. C. Y. Bailey accompanied El lis Simpson, of Beech Creek, to Rog ersville Sunday, where Mr. Simpson was operated on for appendicitis. Miss Omi Kilday came home from Kingsport Saturday, and we hear that she will remain at home for a while. , Mrs. Joel N. Pierce spent a day last week with her mother, at the old home, near here. Miss Bonnie Thacker is improv ing from an attack of the fever. The many friends of our county register, S. D. Thacker, will be glad to hear that he is improving by his stay at Hot Springs, Ark. Mr. John Starnes, Jr., returned to his work in Kentucky last week. Mr. R. A. Dyer, of near Johnson City, was here last week, the guest of Mr. T. N. Bailey. Bob Kelley and son attended the decoration at Beech Creek Sunday. Mr. Bud Malone was here Monday. Bud is getting much better and re ports the finest boy in the 21st dis trict, JUVENILE. ties, as on everything else. Cute little silken bags, rubber-lined and monogramed to match the cape and the bathing suit, are outfit ted with mirrors and necessary ad juncts to the deep sea complexion which needs first aid and ready relief when waves have been too ruthless. All equipped with mantle, cap, bag and parasol you can readily see that nowadays one dons more for a bath, than a ball. cents under my personal money-back guarantee that each spoonful will clean your sluggish liver better than a dose of nasty calomel and that it won't make you sick. Dodson's Liver Tone is eral liver medicine. Y'ou'll know it next morn ing because you will wake up feeling fine, your liver will be working, head ache and dizziness gone; stomach will be sweet and bowels regular. Dodson's Liver Tone is entirely vegetable, therefore harmless and cannot salivate. Give it to your
