FRANCE WAS A FINE COUNTRY
SAYS ROBINSON, RUT NOT NOW
Writing from Homowhoro In Franco
Leonard Robinson, of this city, first
Borgeant Co. E, 13th Eng. Ry., In a
letter to Uio homo folks says:
"I had a letter yesterday from Lon
(his son wjio is aiao m ouniw
France) and ho Is fooling flno,. When
I visited him a short thno ago ho was
so big that I hardy konw him.
I was out walking the othor day and
ovory way you look are llttlo towns
and churches that wero built hundreds
of yoars ago, and for conturios past
tho plcoplo had gono to church ovory
Sunday. Thon camo tho ruthless Gor
mana who blew up tho towns and with
tholr big cannons shot down all tho
pretty llttlo churches. When they
sighted a church they shelled it, for
they know womten and rhildren would
congregate thoro for safety, nnd they
would rather kill defenseless womon
and children than men because It was
safer for thorn.
"This Is, or was a flno country. All
wagon roadH ailei paved -with crushed
rock and all tho buildings are con
structed of ri'i'k Some are a thousand
Mourn old; in fact some were Btandlng
whon the Romans marched through
France to England before the birth of
Christ, and they paused through the.
place whore wia are now stationed
"When I went to vlek Len I Btopped
at Paris onto day and saw tho great
statues of Joan of Arc and Napoloon
and spont an afternoon In tho groat
pallorles of art. What a ohaino that tho
Germans seok to destroy all thoso
wonderful art troasurtels! But aono day
wo will "get" tlur Kaiser and ho will
bo shorn of his powor.
"Easter Sunday I wont to church
twice, tho llrst Borvico by tho chap
lain; In the ovwnlng wo hoard a lec
ture by a Y. M. C. A. spoakor from
California and ho was a dandy talker.
Twice a woek wo have "movies." If
it wore not for tho Y.. M. C. A. wo
would have no plaqq to go.

from the gas sent out by tho Huns."

The old lawyer carefully searched
tho library, but no later "will" could

safe could have no special valuo be

It was a perplexing situation. Tho
twin orphaned nieces, Mary and Mar

relatives' bounty, and Undo Horaco
and Aunt Jane had denied them noth

vantages; both hnd objected tor.dorly
when tho drawing of tho will was dis

things," murmured Mnry.
"Do ns you think host with your
property," Martha had unsolllshly nd
vised. Tho first will divided the estate
equally between the sisters why the
elderly cotiplo had soon fit to change
their minds was a problem. Vaguely
troubled, tho girls aided In tho search,
with no success. Alone, (hoy locked
into each other's faces. "Had ellher
ono of us grlovcd them?" nsked Mary.
Martha shrugged her shoulder. "I
think wo'vo boon pr6tty grateful,"
lie suhl, "staying with them night af

Aunt Juno went. Ilowovor, what dif

"Of course, dear," Mary hastily
ngreed, but a lino showed between her
pretty brows. She was thinking anx
iously about the mon whom Martha
was determined to marry. Ills ex
travagances wore well known. Tho
division" of property Mary considered
Just, but she wished wistfully that she
might havo been nblo to keep up tho
dear homo and to live thoro with old
Mammlo Deliawhen Martha should
Earnestly sho looked over tho
months that wore gono; could It bo
possible that Rho had offended? They
had been so good to her, so kind al
ways. And Mnrtlm, too, looked back.
"They could, not have been preju

marked xwlth satisfaction, "because
they had not hoard of his Intentions.
You did not tell, Mary?" Rut as
quickly sho laughed. "Of course you
wouldn't, loyal soul," sho snld.
So weeks went by with no solution
of tho difficulty.
"P'raps, Mlsslo .Tnno an' Mister Hor
aco weren't shuah decided which loved
'em best befonh dey went, honey,"
Mammlo Delia suggested.
"They probably agreed to leave
things as they were," he said. And lif
ter tho three hnd exhaustively talked
tho subject over ono evening, Mary
went to her room nnd had a dream;
nt least It must have been n drenm,
though to her;n,t tho tiinotnlLsoomed
very real. Sho.hnd unbandofrhor long

Stupidly sho raised her hend from

Marthn burst Into tho room. Martha's
eyes wero wide and dark, her cheeks
"Oh. Mary 1" sho exclaimed. "I have

"A plain nobody," modest Rufus
Dow designated himself, but Ada
Pourco considered hlni tho bcsttOf men
and wns not far amiss, and her father,
who was Dow's employer, had, reason
to thank this loyal, Industrious 'young
fellow for keeping his small and strug
gling business allout through all kinds
Mr. Pearce hnd been too 111 for a
year to do much more than assume tho
direction of affairs; Ho owned a barge,
clumsy, old, and safe for close coast
service only. lie lived u few leagues
down the Australian coast from Mel
bourne, and for twenty years had fol
lowed the conveying of Tncrcliandlso
from port to port, especially bulk stuff,
cutting steamer rutes. The bargo had
a sail and n tiller nnd was scarcely sea
worthy, and could be operated by ono
"I've got a cargo-lco," reported
Pearco ono day. "The consignors will
load and nil care taken off your hands
at the othor ond. Pick out a spell of
clonr Weather for the go, Ruftis, for I
hardly think the cruft will stand mmiy
Rufus started on ljls voyage a week
later. Above the hold, crated, were
two hundred ice cream freezers and
several barrels of coarse rock salt, for
the cargo was designated for & firm en
gaged In the manufacture of lco cream.
"1 think, myself, the old tub Is at lis
last gasp," Rufus told Ada. "It fmu
downs her on this trip, mriyUc It will
bo a good thing, for wo muko So little.
I would like to strike out Into some
lew field. It's this wretched pinching
and scraping to get a dollar ahead that'
Is putting off our murrmge."
"Hut It doesn't wear out our love",
dear," reminded Ada sweetly.
Everything augured an easy, pleas
(ant voyage. Tho old bargo behaved ad
mirably for two days. The third night,
however, tlfty miles from any port, Ru
fus f6und himself ln the grasp of a
fierce storm. AVlth dismay ho loathe
unwieldy craft drift, tho pluythlug, of
tho wuves, for thoro wns nothing elso
to do. , With daybreak there came a
dense fog and a atom northeaster that
drove the barge ahead like an arrow
shot from a bow. Tho straining craft
groaned and shivered. No land wiis In
sight, the great broad sail hnd been
ripped to tatters and tho rudder had
burst Its lashings. Rufus had lost ac
count of bearings, the fog did not lift
and that night the- wind Increased. In
tho utter darkness, Just before day
break, with 11 crash the barge struck
rocks, the prow was battered lato
kindling wood, the bulky mass turned
over on Its side and Rufus clung to the
upper rail, awaiting daybreak.
"It's a coral -reef and an Island be
yond," ho calculated, as morulng
showed him a coastline fringed with
trees. He had mndo up u package of
food niul, strapping half a dozen of the
freezer pulls together utilized them us
a float to get ashore.
Rufus sat down and rested whon he
reached the beach. The tropical air
told him that ho must have voyaged
many hundred miles. ' Ho wns blocking
out a blind courso along the coast
when a blaring trumpet blast, followed
by tho clash of cymbals, cuused him to
observe a procession nt a short dls
tunce. Borno In a palanquin shoul
dered by half a dozen dusky follows, all
hands nearly nude, was a greut, portly
savage, decorated with metal orna
ments. Tho luferenco wus palpnble. Rufus
hnd landed on some Isolated Island In
habited by savages this was their nu
gust monarch on a Journey. They might
bo cannibals, and at -this thought Ru
fus Btnrted to hide, but he wns ob
served and put on a bold front, await
lug the approach of the procession.
Following It wero some cattle yoked
together. The procession halted and
the king, alighting, studied Rufus with
curiosity. Thou ho inquisitively point
ed to the Ice renm palls.
A bright ihouglit struck Rufus.
Through gestures he Imparted to tho
dusky monarch that ho would swim to
tho bargo and return with something
thut would explain the situation. Tho,
king nodded and Rufus struck out for
the wreck. He returned, flouting a
great cake of ice ahead of him, and
tied to his shoulders tho cannlster that
held tho craft's supply of sugar.
One hour Inter Rufus vu at a stago
of wild Jubilation. Ho had mude of
tho king a real friend and tho latter
not only rewarded hlui richly but indi
cated that he should bo conveyed to
"Yas. I'm hero and tho bargo and Its
cargo demolished or devoured," report-'
ed Rufus to Ada, and her father ono
month later, and ho told of tho wreck.'
"And then," ho recited, "I treated
theia. Thoy had cows, and therefore
milk. I had sugar nnd Ice. I made
thom a freezer full of Ice cream. The
effect was magical. Thoy had nover
tasted the dainty before nnd wero en
tranced. They halted right there, un
loading Ice and freezors from the
burge. They sent to their camp and a
whole army Hocked to tho spot. There,
was such un lco crouni fcstlvul as Vvus
never heard of bofore. Thoy koRt
tholr word as to placing me In the way
of gutting home and tho king gave me
those" and Rufus, drawing out a llt
tlo chamois-skin bag, poured Into his
hand a dozen or more magnificent dia
monds. "And now, Ada" ho exuberated,
gayly, "wo enn" get married."
