Strange Quiet Now Rests Over
Land Torn by Shot
and Shell.
Plain Vegetables and Certain Meats,
Even Choice Wines, Aaaln Are
Plentiful Friendly Lights
Seen at Night.
llehlnd the Lines Iti France This
land of recent battles Is u queer lund
now. Over the shell-torn villages and
blasted woods, the pitted Holds and
mlii of all that once was Is a strange
quiet. The winter Hky Is lacking In
airplanes and great llocks of crows
have taken their place.
A few villagers have crept hack to
eee what remains of their homes and
holdings, hut probahly the winter will
have passed before reclamation and
reconstruction are undertaken on u
Inrgo scale.
Along the roads repaired and re
bridged for the allies' advance Into
Gorman territory long camion trains
move slowly and always southward.
They travel leisurely now, for the need
of hurry Is gone. They bring back
the salvage of battlefields, all the
things that go to mko war, abandoned
or captured.
Endless Trophies of War.
Truck load after truck load of rllles
nnd shells, of water bottles and linvor
fiacks, cartridges, machine guns, bayo
nets nnd trench knives and pistols,
mess kits, overcoats, caps, an endless
catalogue of paraphernalia are brought
In. The battle zone Is still full of It
oil, In heaps and racks, waiting sal
vage. Now and then come trains of air
plane camions burdened with disman
tled flying machines of every type and
every nation, engine and fuselage and
running gear on the truck and the
grent wings on its specially designed
trailer. Some of them are unharmed,
but many show bullet holes through
the frail fabric or the ruins of u crash.
A fair proportion of them bear the
Maltese cross that marks them boche.
There are trains of captured enemy
artillery, particularly of motor bat
teries, driven and manned by French
men, and these are happy outfits.
Often the guns are decorated with
evergreens and nlwnys the French sol
diers luugh and wave a greeting. As
they creep through the villages the
populaco llocks out to view the can
non that for four years r.ent death and
devastation to their land, and the
children clamber on the carriages and
out oti the grim barrels.
Hut It Is the troops on the way back
that are most Interesting, returning
to rest areas or to their ports of em
barkation for home. French or Amer
ican, their behavior Is the same. Al
ways they greet everyone cheerily or
boisterously and always the French
ofllccrs salute with a smile when they

Travelers Are Welcomed.
Strangest of all arc the lights nt
night In the hamlets and villages, or
shining frlendllly from the Isolated
farmhouse, In regions further back.
For f-o long France seemed a deserted
land to the traveler by night. Hour
after hour the press correspondent
has traveled at night without a glim
mer to be seen In the countryside, and
now from every hill and vale the
cheery windows shine and the villages
are ablaze. The papers devote col
umns to the Illumination of I'arls, but
it is here In the remote part of France
where war has been that light nt
night seem most wonderful, even If
they are but candle or little lamp.
Washington. The first threo Amer
ican soldiers to die In battle on French
soli fell In the village of llothcltnont,
about twelve miles enst of Nancy- The
population of this region decided to
erect a monument commemoruting
their saerlllce, and u repllcu of this
proposed monument was sent to Pres
ident Wilson by Ambassador Sharp
at I'arls n few months ago nt the re
quest of those in charge of the proj
ect. Originally It was the Intention
to hold the ceremony of dedication In
the very village or Hethelmont. where
the threo young heroes had given their
lives for freedom, but the community
was situated so near the thing line
that the ceremony had to be held at
Nancy. Ambassador Sharp has sent
to the stute department a graphic re
port on the subject. A large crowd
of distinguished people were present
at the dedication exercises.
M. Minium, in his address before a
huge assembly at Nancy, emphasized
