In times of peace to got to this, place

i making the distance we wasted fif

Paris required by the chief to issue the

Different in Hay
War followed us into Italy. But
from the war as one finds It in Eng
land and France, it differed. Per
haps we were too far west, but, ex-
cept for the field uniforms of green
and the new scabbards of gun metal
and, at Turin, four caroplanes in the
air at the same time, you might not
have known Italy was one of the al
lies. For one thing, you saw no
wounded. Again, perhaps it was be
cause wo were too far south, and west
and that the fighting in the Tyrol Is
concentrated. Hut Bordeaux is farth
er from the battle line in France than
's Naples from the Italian front and
die multitudes of wounded in Horde
nix, the multitudes of women in black
in Bordeaux, make one of the most ap
palling, most significant pictures of
this war. In two days in Naples I
Jul not sec a wounded num. Hut many
Germans and German signs, and
no ono had scratched Mumm off the
wine card. A country that is one of
tho allies, and yet is not at war with
Germany, cannot claim to take this
war very seriously. She even leaves
herself open to suspicion.
Has Italy an "Object?"
In Naples tho foreigners accuso Ita-
of running with the hare and the
hounds. They nsk what is her ob
ject in keeping on friendly terms with
tie bitterest enemy of the allies. If
there an understanding, that after the
war, sho and Germany will together
arve slices off of Austria? What
ever her ulterior object may be her
present war spirit does not impress
the visitor. It is not tho spirit of
Fiuuce and England. One man said
to me, "Why can't you keen the Itali
an-Americans in America? Over
there they earn money nnd send mil
lions of it to Italy. When they come
here to fight not only thai money
stops but we have to feed and pay
It dill not sound very grateful. Nor
as tho Italy was seriously at var. You
do not find France and England, or
Gerimny, grudging the ma .vho ve
turns to light for his country his ra
tions and pay. And Italy pays her
soldiers five cents a day. Many of
the reservists and volunteers from
America who answered the call to
arms nre bittterly disappointed. They
expected to be led at once to the fir
ing line. Instead, after six months,
they are still in camp. The families
r.ome brought with them are in great
need. They are not used to living on
five cents a day. An Italian told me
the heaviest drain upon the war re
lief funds came from the families of
these Italian-Americans stranded in
their own country. He also told me
his chief duty was to meet them on
their arrival.

"Hut haven't they money when they
arrive from America!" I asked.
"That's it," he said, naively. "I'm
at the wharf to keep their country
men from robbing them of it."

French "High Finance."
On the advice of the wisest young
banker in France I changed, again at
a loss, the French paper into Bank of
Engb-d notes. But when I arrived in
Saloniki I found that with the Greeks
English bank notes were about as po

Forewarned, we bad not; and taking
our word for it, he again raised his hat

was to weigh anchor at noon, and at
noon all the port officials were at de
jeuner, so, sooner tnan wait n ween
for another boat, the passengers went
on board and carried their bags with
them. It was unpardonable. It was
an affront the port officials could not
brook. They had been disregarded
Their dignity had ben flouted. What
was worse, they had not been tipped.

"Let George Do it."
'I havo on me," ho whispered, "four
'nglish sovereigns. I am not taking
hem out of Italy, because, until they
tossed tho border in my pocket, they
vcre not in Italy, and as I am now
raving Italy, one might say they have

Tho untipped port oflicials were still
angling their swords, so I advised the
igarotto king to turn in his gold.
Iven a Greek steamer is better than
.n Italian jail.
"I will niako of it a test'ease," he
"Let George do it," I urged.
At that moment, in the presence of
11 tho passengers they were search-
n g tho person of another British sub
set, and an ally. He was one of La
y Padgct's suit. He was in uniform,
nd as they ran itching fingers over
lis body, he turned crimson, and the
est of us, pretending not to witness
.is humiliation, ate ravenously of
oat's cheese.
The cigarette king, breathing de
fiance repeated. "I will make of it a
est case."
"Better let George do it," I urged.
Ami when his name was culled, a
name that is as well known from Ka
valla to Smyrnr. in tobacco fields,
.weetmoat shops, palaces and masqu
es, as at the Ititz and the Gaiety, the
cigarette king wiacly accopted for his
four sovereigns Italian llres.

Iater, off Capri, he asked, "When
you advised me to let George make a

passengers did you refer?"

exactly as she is today. With, In the
streets, no sign of life, with the in
habitants standing idle along tho
quay, shivoring in the rain nnd snow,
with for background crumbling walls
gaping cellars and hills buried under
ncres of fallen masonry, the picture
was one of terrible desolation, of ne
glect and inefficiency. The only
structures that had obviously been er
ected since the earthquake were tho
"ready-to-wear" shacks sent as a stop
gap from America. should not
look critically at a gift-house, but they
are certainly very ugly. In Italy,
whore every spot is a "location" for
moving pictures, whore the street cor
ners are backgrounds for lovers'
trysts and assassinatiois, where oven
poverty is picturesque, and each land
scape "composes" into a beautiful and
wondrous painting, the zinc shncks in
rigid lines, like the barracks of a min
ing camp, came as a shock.
Sympathetic Americans sent them
as only a temporary shelter until Mos
sina rose again. But, it was explain
ed as there is no rent to pay, the Ita
lians, instead of rebuilding, prefer to
inhabit the ready-to-wear houses. How
many tourists the mere view of thorn
drives away, no one can guess.
There's a Reason j
People who linger in Naples and by
train to Reggio join the boat as Mes
sina never admit that they followed
that route to avoid being seasick. Sea
sickness is an illness of which no one
ever boasts. He may take pride in
saying, "I've an awful cold!" or, "I've
such a headache I can't sec!" and will
expect you to feel sorry. But he
knows no matter how horrible ho suf
fers from mal de mer, he will receive
no sympathy. In a Puck and Punch
way he will be merely comic. So the
passengers who come over the side
ut Messina always have an excuse
other than that they are dodging the
3ea. It is usually that they lost their
luggage at Naples and had to search
for it. As the Italian railroads, which
are operated by the government, al
ways lose your luggage, it is an ad
mirable excuse. So, also is the one
that you delayed in order to visit the
ruins of Pompeii. The number of
pcoplo who have visited Pompeii solely
because the bay of Naples was in an
ugly mood will never be counted.
Sadness hereabout is general over
the demise of Mrs. Mary (Gibson)
Thrift, which occurred at her homo on
Thursday, Jan. 13 1916, at the age of
12 years.
Deceased was born at EUcnsburg
now Gold Beach and was eldest, of
three sisters, Mary, Henrietta, Jean-
ette, the second having espoused a re
ligious life and retired is known as
Sister Mary Aquinas.
Deceased was united in marriage
with Edward B. Thrift, May 14, 1899
and to the union have been four child
ren, two boys nnd two girls, all whom
including her husbad, survive to
mourn the passing of a kind, indul
gent, wife, and a loving tolerant ad
humane mother.
Deceased along with her two sis-j
ters above mentioned, entered Mount)
Migei college in lH'JU, wnere tne more ;
immediately useful sciences nre taught
nnd whero artificialities of behavior
are eschewed, and naturalness and
right thinking aro sedulously encour
aged. Wherefore ith as occurred that
deceased had endeared herself to a
very large circle of friends and ac
quaintances to a degree seldom equal
ed, in the intercourse of mortals with
their kind.
None knew her but to hold her in
highest respect for her many humane
and nimable qualities and. helpful
traits, and none will remember but to
grieve over our common bereavement.
Interment took place at Denmark,
cemetery on Saturday, Jan 15, where
the obsequies were witnessed by a
very largo attendance of people con
sidering that the day was the nost in
clement nnd forbidding of the season.
Tho husband, sisters and the two
sons nnd two daughters as well ns the
aged and honored father, Mr. M. B.
Gibson, are objects of sincerest con
dolence in their great bereavement by
their whole circle of acquaintances.
