Hero Is a city, which had grown hoary -with age and had been "beaten down by war, Ilte.rnlly TlslnB from tho grave, tuklng on new youyi and start- Ins all over again: a peoplo bludgeoned, bleeding, bowed, Donnmbed by the cruelties of civilisation's greatest tragedy, sotting their hands afresh to the workaday commonplaces' ot community life'where they left off— literally challenging: destiny.

Shanty homes, shanty stores, shanty offices—nothing but shanties for blocks and blocks. The city government, the Mayor's office, the police department, the assessor, all function In shanties. Long ahods ot them spread across tho spacious square where onco stood Albert's beautiful city hall. Most of tho town's merchandise la sold In shautlcs. Housewives shop from shanty storo to shanty, trudging across ruid nlong pavements still topsy-turvy from thoir deluge ot World War snails. A shanty town, out and out! All of which must not bo construed to mean that Albert has lain dormant or idle during the five years that have elapsed slnco tho Armistice was Blgned. ITor Industrious people have been working with might and main all tho time. But they had to dig out and clear away before 'they could start to rebuild. As all tho world knows, tho town was almost -pulver- OKed by tho rain of shot and shell which swept her from every point of the com puss during the -war. Her ruination resulted In all but. annihilation. A mans of twisted steel alone remained to mark the site of tho once proud city when thn German Invaders were driven back for the last time. Hardly hud tho thunder of the big guns died away "before her People came pouring back to set about their herculean tasks of reconstruction. It was an appulllng prospect i >nt tho Albertfnn spirit In peace, wind in war, was Indomitable. There wore no hesitants, no doubting Thomases! Tho work of recovery has. gone steadily forward. Officials and other spokesman for'the town nssurod the American visitors that it would continue lo go forward and on a growing scale. YCH , Albert is coming back! A City Swallowed Up. Like all the cities of Northern France which trace their history back into ancient times, through war after war, Albert in IIU4 was undermined by. a vat ;t system ot subterranean works—relics of places of refuge for the pooplo when invading armies attacked.--Into th,o labyrinth the ciLy tumbled during tho bombardments which began on September 21), 11114, and continued unceasingly almost to tho point of annihilating tho town. A'bert collapsed into Its own cellars, as though tho earth htfd swallowed it. and today, with whole squares and lines ot these cellars finally exposed and hemmed in by the piles of debris hauled out of them, the city appeared to the Goods,Wlll Delegates aa "The Modern Pompeii.'' On a rise ot ground In the center ot Albert stand [lie ruins of its cathedra!, dark against the sky, lis several ptt- lars and bi-iAen arches merging, when viewed from certain angles, into a conical effect— much as Vesuvius lifts Itself—and from tho base of the cathedral there flow away on all sides the flgura't'-u lava beds of crumbled stone mid '• and slate. An . - .an Boom Spirit. Amid tL.:- ^-..olnlion the American women Were astonished to find such optimism. There Is no bemoaning of fate, scarcely any talk of the war and no hint either by word or action, that Albott will not someday remove the last vestige of the ruins. The Inhabitants are energetic. They make the best of life In tho shanties. Tho rough exteriors of those abodes are relieved by plants and flowers In tho windows and tho yards. Grass plots are beginning to creep into the Hglii. Tho Bight tho American women were thero the tinkle of a piano was heard, a phonograph, a volco In soug, children laughed and played among the ruins and over the billowing streets. Women smiled upon tho delegates and waved at theuJ from tho doorsllls of their shanties. Albert is happy oven among the striking evidences of its tragedy. An American Boom spirit possesses the town, it la looking ahead, and not behind. In reaching Albert, very close to tho town, what Is described as tlio largest mine crater In the Somme sector como Into view. It was there, Just before tho Urltish troops begun their memorable offensive along the Soin- ino on July 1, 191G, that they exploded a mine from one of the enemy's most formidable* iiositinus, a mir.e Planted after weeks of boring underground. Tho crater la more than 200 toot In diameter. Scars of War Healing. Tho desolate plague-ridden aspect of tho country Is not without Its refreshing touches, for French farmora are at work in tho war-torn fields, striving to fertilise and revitalize the earth. Growing crops are encroaching on the white gushes in tho hills, $ 3.95 5 Our Highest Priced Hat—Now $ 7.50 the thump of tho cnS -pentcr's hammer and the ring of tho mason 's trowol are heard In the villages and cities, and everywhere Is manifested the feeling that tho war Is over and that all Franco Is working toward recovery. In Poronne, that city on the Sommo that bora much of tlio brunt of the operations along this front, tho delegates perclevcd that long strides had been taken toward rehabilitation. The picturesque Hretagno Onto and tho ancient chateau In Peronno, each showing Its shell wounds, claimed thoir Interest. In tho Grande Placo at Peronno. which almost, continuously during the war was filled with reserve German cannon, the delegates saw the ruins of tlio city hall anil the church, hut they saw nlsa, In place of the cannon, lines of farmers' carts oud trucks 'bearing budding material to one place or another. STANDARD TOASTERS SHOULD BE SELECTED Some folkB find crisp, golden brown toast as necessary to their breakfast satisfaction as clear, amber coffee-. So prevalent has this ttisto become that you will often hoar people suying thut in their particular homes, especially In tho summer ttruo, toast has become virtually their breakfast food. Now the cooking of toast Is an art, and an art. by the way, that is well nigh impossible of execution unless it Is accomplished on an electric, toaster. No other means of cooking gives that ovon, crisp brown without burn- lug or drying up tho bread. If your family is fond of tonst it is absolutely essential, however, that you have one of the standard correctly designed, electric toasters. ,A recent survey of tho electric appliance field showed thai, thero avo so -mo toasters on the market that will not give satisfaction and It Is therefore up to the purchaser to buy tho type that will do tho work correctly. A toaster that supplies too Intense heat will burn the bread before It Is toasted. Or It may be so constructed that it will leave a blank strip a Quarter of an inch wide along tho bottom ot the slice, of bread. Some toasters will not tako tho baker's standard size 24 ounce loaf. Or, again, If tho bread Is toasted evenly but slowly It will dry out before It Is toasted. But the manufacturers ot the better American, ma do toasters have over- | como the Aforesaid difficulties so that i on any quality appliance you can j make toast that will bo as ambrosia I for tho gods. j A littlo earn in selecting your toaster will save you much disappointment. DELL WITH A PAST. Veteran of Manhattan Church Once Graced a River Steamer. Manhattan, Kan., July U When the bell on the tower or the Methodist I.Sph-'copal church of Manhattan sends out its clear, unfaltering call, one would never ^uoss that It was hc-lulng down its second job. Tho first one was with a small sleamer which came from -Cincinnati, O., up the river as far as Manhattan. That was "way buck in 1S47," The settlers—Tivo hundred of them—were mighty glad to see the old boat, for she always brought supplies and often a handful of new Inhabitants. On her last trip that year the steamer stayed a little longer than usual and got. only two miles from town on her way lCnst again when she struck a parel bur and then caught flro. There was littlo left except the boil which was taken by a farmer and put to use on the littlo Methodist chapel In the village. Anil the hell is still doing its duty. It la a cruol doctrine that assumes that cares and pains uro essential. And yet it does seem at times that misfortune 13 the only thing that can make some people think and appreciate good fortune.—Atchison Globe.
