"Real American Girls."
f-f-HER.E are nearly 2,000 dough-
J boys in Aix-les-Bains every
day now. They are there on
vacation. French and English sol
diers go homo when the time for
leave comes. They see their wives,
sweethearts and mothers, sleep com
fortably in the old familiar bed and
jeat home-cookiEg. They come back
ito their plaoos in the Army re-
jfreshod and renewed. ,
But the American boy cannot go
home. Either, he must go without
a vacation which would mean un
happiness and reduced efficiency
or a borne must be ereated for him
in France, ; The Y. M. C. A. has
(undertaken the task of making that
home for him. American Y, M. C. A.
(women have the largest part of the
'share In the success attained.
When the doughboy arrives at
'Aix the beautiful and comfortable
.watering-place among the French
'Alps everything is ready for him.
The Army has furnished him with
transportation and arranged to pay
Ms hotel bill. The Y. M. C. A.
kinds him room and arranges for
big board.' He is assigned to a
comfortable room In a good hotel,
where he can have French cooking,
as a change from American fare,
freedom from military discipline,
be for eight days his own master,
and so get a real rest.
I Settled in his room, the boy
heads for the casino, the center of
interest in the town. This magnlfl
joent structure set down amid hand
some gardens, was at once the play
ground and the gambling haven
of the aristocracy of Europe. .
Aristocracy Lends Color
A few of tho aristocracy still
come to Aix to mingle with the
doughboys and lend color to the
: scene. The casino has been taken
over by the Y. M. C. A. and Is
operated as a club free to all en
liBted men. : It Js here that the
American women preside. - These
boys maV not have seen aa Amer
ican woman for six or eight montjis,
and there women are to them moth
ers and sisters for the time being
there to make their vacation a real

Mrs. Helen Bagley Anderson, ot
: Colorado Springs end Detroit,
carries the spirit of the place, A
doughboy doesn't stay long in Aix
before "Mother" Anderson finds
him. She gets his namer learns
where he Is from and welcomes him
In Just the manner to put him
completely at home.
"Sergeant," she calls to a "young"
veteran who wanders in late. "Why
is It It never see you till 6 o'clock
in the afternoon? We have picnics,
excursions and hikes. You can go
np Mount Revard by train and see
Mount Wane. You can go for a
boat ride on the lake; there is the

you, and you know the tennis courts

"Well, lady," I wakes np maybe
about eight and then rolls over
and sleeps some more. And when
I've finished a'sleeping in that nice

how lucky I am."
But the "younger" boys, who rep
resent the mass, .gather early for
the doings and stay lata. They are
eager to talk to the two score Amer

All Western Unioiclockg iu tho city
will bo turned back one hour tonight.
To those who have Western Union
standard time clocks, a key, has been
furnished and the following instruc
': Under tho daylight saving law, the
time throughout the country will be re
tarded one hour at 2 o'clock A. M. on
Sunday, October' 27. directions for ad
justing the Western Union clocks are as
follows: Make the adjustment on an
even hour by moving tho minute hand
to avoid it being out of 'synchronizing
rango when the change has been made.
Do not under any circumstances at
tempt to move the hands backward."
Railroad men havo received instruc
tions as follows: "Conductors, engin
eers, brakemon and firemen on duty at
2 o clock Sunday morning will, be re
quired to sign an order, stating they
have received copies of the circular, and
that they have turned back their
watches one hour and since turning
back one hour, have compared time
with the correct standard time."
All the average citizen need do is just
to turn the old clock or watch back one
hour tonight ani let it go at that. To
morrow being Sunday morning and no
church or Sunday scnoor nor anytning
special going on, naturally nothing very
serious would happen if tho all-import

tending to travel Sunday will find the

for Bob's armchair stood before the
fireplace empty. Little wrinkles of dis

gathered up the injured kitten, flinging
bitter sentences at the astonished fel

banged a thunderous finish to this out
burst For a moment Bob stood dazed,
then started to follow her, but realizing
the finality of the banged door, he reach

Many weeks passed, and one after
noon found Bob in the office of Frank
Sears, Alice's big, jolly brother, and one
of Bob's club friend. He was lonely,
but his pride kept him from mentioning
the misunderstanding with Alice, and
Frank never once referred to it . 1
The 'phone rang, and Frank answered
In a moment Bob "knew that he was
speaking to Alice. The thought of her
voice so near made him forget every
thing. He realized vaguely that Frank
was writing somcthiTig down. Present

"Big doing at the house tonight,"
remarked Frank to his gloomy friend.
"It's Alice's turn to give the prize sup

thought "Say, Frank, let me do that

"Why, I wouldn't want to trouble you

"No trouble at all," returned Bob,
picking up the list and preparing to
leave. "Glad to be able to save you the

satisfactorily." ' ' ';
"All "right," said Frank, laughing,
"thank you. Good-by and good luck."
An Iiour later Bob stood on the door
step of the Scars home, laden down with
'all manner of delicacies. He rang, and
to his surprise, the latch clicked without
any inquiry as to who was there. Bob
entered thanking Providenci that he
had got that far so easily. Remember-'
ing a former encounter in the hallway
he moved along carefully. Beyond the
kitchen door there was a din of pans and
dishes and small -feet hurrying to and
fro and the odor of good things cook

erately opened the door. There stood
the fairest cook that ever mixed dough,
deep in the mysteries of biscuit making,
a funny daub of flour ornamenting her
chin. . She stopped and stared at Bob in

eyes were dancing.
"Why of course yonr thoughtfulness
