Herbert I). Bowman, a former Topeka young man who Is now overseas. According to his letter he thinks he bus struck the ralnest part of France. He writes: ; "Wo seem to have struck the rainy part of France, for it showers about every half hour, "it Is quite cold and dreary out tonight, but at that t believe It beats the heat at home."" We arc busy all the time now going to school or drilling. A great deal ot emphasis is put on the gas drill and It Is required that we carry our masks with us at all times—except mess) and that we wear them for an hour a day. "We turned In our campaign hats the other day and we now wear little cloth caps, patterned sbmewhat after Ihe little Scotch caps worn cocked on one ear,. They are much more easily packed uwuy when we gel to tho front and wear ahrapnel lids, than hats would be. Easy to Spend Money. "The road lending from camp to the village Is lined with stores, booths, wine parlors and other kinds ot separators for the '•benefit' of American soldiers. The benefit lies mostly on the side of- tho French, however, for they soon learn over hero that If the 'millionaire BOldlers,' as they call us, want anything they will pay the price, whatever 1J. may be, "Went io a picturo show the other evening In a tent on the 'midway' and saw what I bcllovo is the origlnui movlug picture, at any rate it was of very ancient vintage. Charley Chaplin also performed through one reel ot his very earliest comedies. "Our trip from Camp Doniphan wus started |u standard Pullmans, but those good old days are over. Our last move was made In box cars, lately used to transport horses. In fact all the railroads seem to bo government property as they are marked 'IStat.' Every bbx car Is labeled 'Homines 36-40, Ch.cva.ux 8,' meaning 'Men 3040, horses 8.' These Frunch box ears nro not much larger than a Belt-respecting army truck and as for smooth riding, they make an American box car ride like a Pulman dfi luxe. Don't mind It a bit, though, for it's nil part of Ihe game and besides It beats walking all hollow." Sees Submarine. In an earlier letter dated Juno, 30 Mr. Bowman said: "We had very little excitement on the water save for sighting a couple of subs. One ot them immediately disappeared, but tho second came up right, in our midst .Said sub didn't hnve a chance, though for we were so well guarded that it had no sooner appeared on the surface than several guns were trained on It and several Bhots flrcfl Tho Smb will never again bother anybody. We landed at Liverpool. Bug., and then had a very protty t rip by train across KjiKltind to our rirst rast camp near rtomsc.y. From there we hiked to Southhampton and stopped for a day. We crossed the Channel at night, but the start was made early In Ihe evening and the first part of the trip down the river was out around the Isle of Wright was very pretty Wo landed at Le Havre. That is as far as we are permitted to describe the trip. We are now Just 'somewhere In France.'

On tho garb of the latter appeared the "All-Seeing liye," a large reproduction of the human eye symbolizing the far-reaching Influence of the clan, which ncceutuated the hid- eousnesa ot the garb. Later when tho K, K. K. adopted this garb tho eye was displaced by tho large cross. "A Mormon Maid" vividly portrays the Insidious activities of tho "Angels" who wgre under the bidding ot the Council of Elders, and who formed a ntework of guards through which no tale-bearer could escape and no Interloper break In. Heavily armed and expert on tho swiftest of steeds, these "Angels" v.-ero noted for tho despntcllPnnd brutality with, which Ihey carried out every whim of tho Elders. ' . Furious night rides to execute missions of the "Council" and secret meetings of that "Council" make somo of the strongest scenes of tho picture. "SCANDAL." Letters From Soldiers .Still in the United States Camps. Following is a letter from Winford Dundy, who Is enroute lo a camp In Toxus. He was In a wreck at Enid, Oklahoma, and writes and tells about it. His letter follows: Comanche, Okla., Sept,. 5, 1918.

Intrigued by his lurid reputation with women. Beatrix enters into a gay little flirtation with Sutherland Yorke, a fashionable portrait painter, and so far defies convention as to visit his studio in the evenings. He breaks up her assurance, however, on attempting lo hiss her, and with the indignation of a young empress she quItB his apartment.

Clotncs Line Alley Is typical of the tenement district of a great metropolis, and the characters, from the star down, are all Indigenous to the precincts that form so large an4l picturesque portions of the city. Mary Pickford, ot course, Is Amar­ illy, daughter of a tender-hearted Irish washerwoman, and mother of a large family, the»boys of which are messengers and newsboys. Amarilly makes her living as a scrub girl in a theatre, while her fiance, Terry McGowan, the pride of the Alle^, is a bartender in the Midway saloon. Aside from tho fact that he holdu tho heart of Amarilly, he Is celebrated as the Inventor ot the famous Hick- ey-Boola cocktail, though he himself never Indulges In liquor. The happiness of tjic inhabitants of Clothes Line Alley is well portrayed, aud the moral attitude is compared to tho bored and restless life of the upper crust, Including one of its leading members, Gordon Phillips, whose mother Is anxious he shall marry of social prominence. Mother receives a sevcro shock; when she discovers that her son has fallen in love with Amarilly. The events that' ensue prove conclusively that the widely separated elements in tho social world cannot mix happily.
