WILL HAVE LITILEARLIN6TON (By United Press.) AUSTIN, Tex., Nov. 7.—L. W. Kept, of Housten, has a flair for, htBtbry, but after reading all the Texas histories he still did not know what became of many of the men who established the republic of Texas. Methodically he began private" in-, vestlgatlons. Through his Inquiries the graves, many unmarked, have been traced, With an aproprlation from the atate legislature, Kemp now is gath-> erlng their remains and relhterrlng them In a state cemetery at Austin. Monuments briefly reciting the founders' deeds will form the nucleus of a state "Arlington." Among those to be honored is Oliver Jones, native of New York city, who met Stephen F. Austin in Mexico City, cast his lot with Austin's colony In Texas and was responsible for. the adoption of the Lone Star flag of the Texas republic, .and its national seal with a central flve pointed star. Kemp found the trash heaped graves of Jones and his wife in an abandoned cemetery In Houston. The remains of the former governor, Peter Hansborough Bell, are being brought to- Texas from Littleton, N. C., permission for reinterment having been obtained from relatives living in Culpepper, Va. Bell was one of the most powerful figures in early Texas history. He went as an ambassador from the Republic-of Texas to Great Britain and secured England's recognition of the republic. Another North Carolinian, Colonel Alexander Horton, will be honored by a state monument at his present grave at San Augustine, Tex. He was aide to. General Sam Houston In the battle of San Jaolnto, ' ' Others whose remains are being brought to the state cemetery include James Plnckney Henderson, first governor of Texas; Robert A, Irion, secretary of 'state of the reubllc of Texas; Governor Hat'din R* Runnels; Robert M. Williamson, known in Texas history as "Peg Leg Willie", the preacher patriot J-W. B. Skates, signer of the declaration; Richard Ellis, signer; Robert James Calder, captain at the battle of San Jacinto, and James Billingsley, captain of San Jaointo. One citizen of England will be honored in the same way, the Rev. James C. Wilson. Wilson accompanied the ill-fated Mler expedition into Mexico. When the participants were captured the fighting parson refused to claim his English citizenship and perished- with the captured Texans. CHICA'GO HOTEL STAFF KNOWS MANY LANGUAGES CHICAGO, Nov. 7.—Because many professional men of'high standing in their native lands are reduced to dishwashing and pantry service during the period of adjustment in America, the Drake hotel boasts an interesting service competent in thirty-six languages. Tickets in the card-index of the maitre d'hote! are the liagtfistic accomplishments of his subordinates. Reference to this index furnishes an interpreter for "the financier from the Argentine, or a resourceful courier for his wife, should she wish to shop while her husband is engaged In La Salle •treet.

These facts have been circulated in a report on the management of-tho French atate railways. ; In 1014 it cost 0.112 francs (gold or paper) to travel one kilometre in first class; today, -the .price Is 0.4605 (paper) francs. Accordingly the rates have gone up 302 per cent in fmper. but they have gone down 32 per cent in gold, the report shows. French passenger rates are the lowest in the world today, it la revealed, being exactly 08 per cent of pre-war rates. The percentages for other countries (present tariffs compared with 1914 gold rates) are: United States, 149; Italy, 72; Great Britain, 150; Czechoslovakia, 80; Germany, 154; Spain, 97; Holland, 1B7; Switzerland, 162 Austria, 100. count SHOWS WISDOM, NEW YORk, Nov. 7.—::Other fellers had bicycles and I didn't," la wfiat John Gabowakl, 12, told County Judge George H.
