An- ~orn, descriptive of European countries ad conditions,) You may believe that I reembarked ~a the return trip across the channel ~ith no feeling of great joy. The ~oat was so crowded that there were ~o chairs left on deck and it was so lose inside that neither of us dared ~in, so I s'~t on the suitcase and ~arles stooll beside me and kept ~lking to me and nointing out things interest eta until I did not get tck, that 'is ~ot visibiv. We got ght on the train at Ostende Bel- ,ura, and went straight to Brussels. here we stayed all night at "The slate Hotel." It's such a beautiful ace, While satin down comforts on Le b~i, mind you, and everything Be to correspond, and only $4 a ght for the two of us and a lovely tth room. ' " The next morning we left: at 7 el0ck for Cologne, Germany V(~ t~l a two-hour wait there and soI down through the present war, It was certainly interesting to see the various guns. airplanes, etc.. that had been used against us in the war. We saw the plane that had brought down the most allied planes during the war. It had big black German crosses on the wings. I also saw later German~planes in action and when I saw those big black crosses on the wings, a feeling of utter terror came over me and I fully expected them to drop a bomb. They wouldn't show us the submarines in the ar- mory. That night we went to the Royal Opera House aud saw "'Tannhauser," ~hich is the most wonderful opera I have ever seen. The scenery and lighting effects were simply wonder.- ful. Of course it added" to our cn- joymcnt when we came to bits with which we were familiar like "The Evening Star." and "The Pilgram's Chorus." The next day we took our guide and went out to Potsdam, which for generations has been nor only the summer home but the place where they really spent most of their time The present kaiser's palace was a grand, awe-inspiring place but it didn't appeal to me as did the Sans ~llt into the great cathedral for a Souci palace, where the other era- trice.

'Twas at Pots- dam we visited the Hohenzollern church where they have all been christened, baptized, etc., and where their bodies lie in state after death until they are placed in the Hohen- zollern vault in the royal catbedral at Berlin. When we were there the body of Prince Joaquln, the kaiser's son who killed himself a few montl~s ago, was lying in state. We spent the next day going through their biggest department stores which surely are wonderful. For instance here is ORe idea I had never before seen. In the grocery department they had long, deep glas~ counters in which hundreds and thousands of fish swam and capered about. The customer indicated which fish he wanted and the clerk caught him with a net. Then the customer was always assured of fresh fish. In the a.fternoon we took a car- riage and drove around over the city Everything was very expensive there All I bought was a hand embroidered handkerchief, just to have something from Berlin. Thus we spent three days in Ber- lin and that evening left for Leipsig. The train wa.~ very crowded and we had to sit on our traveling bags out in the hallway most of the way. We arrived at the hotel to which wc had telegraphed ahead for rooms, about 10:.q0 at night, only to discover that they had nothing, but had ar- ranged for rooms for us in a private home. It gave us a strange feeling to have a German cabman driving us through the darkness of an unfamil- iar city to goodness only knew what ~but as it turned out, it was one of the rich homes of the city and they had put beds in the drawing room and library for us. You see we had reached Leipsig at the time of the big fair and there were a quarter of a million transients from all over [ the world registered there.

I also bought two hand em- broidered baby pillow cases, and that's all I bought in Liepzig. We were in Leipzig two days and then went on to Dresden. In Dres- den we saw the wonderful art muse- um in which is the original of Ra- phael's "Sistine Madonna." Also the original of Carregio's "Holy Night.' I bought copies of each picture and will have them framed when wc get back to the states. This museum cov- ers acres of ground and includes cverything under the shining sun. We even went through the green vaults where the royal jewels are kept. We were allowed to go through kaiser's collection of Dresden china, and other kinds tot), which was very fine. ~Vc visited the Bruhl terraces and from there haxl a wonderful view of the Elba river, which flows right through Dresden. We shopped a lit- tle and Con and [ were able to pick up some pieces of pewter. I got a bowl and she a pair of.candle sticks. bowl and she a pair of candle stiicks. Pewter is hard to get in spite of the fact that the German families possess whole dinner sets of it, which have been handed down from their grand- mothers, but they simply a;on't part with a single piece of it. Every one of the four of us went to Dresden expecting to buy a Dresden te~ set and other Dresden pieces, be- sides, but when we got there we found that there wasn't as much of a selection from which to choose as we have right here in Coblenz and that things were just exactly three times as expensive. The result was that all four of us came away without buy- ing a single piece of china. While I think of it I must tell you of the signs in some of the shop windows in [which they want to tell you they can *speak your language. "On parle Francais," which means "We speak French," "English spoken," American understood." That seems laughable. aud yet there surely is a great differ- ence between British English and American English. We left Dresden at 11:55 the next day and got into Prague which is the capital of Checo-Slovakia. about 4 p. m. When we crossed the border we had to leave the train and go through tile customs. Our baggage and pock- etbooks were searched, our passports examined minutely and then we werel taken into a little room and searche~lI I personally by a woman. They don'tI allow you to carry but a small] amount of the money of the countryl out with you. I presume they are I trying to cut down speculation. The mob and jam of people was terrific. Con got turned around in the crowd and came out the door backwards. It was rather terrifying, being crushed in this crowd, not knowing what was expected of you next. and having this absolutely impossible Cheeko-Slo- vakian language jabbered on all .~ldes. Prague was absolutely different from anything else we visited. In the first place It's a dirty city and looks old and worn. YOu see many, many people in their native costumes. We saw no well dressed people. They seem to be tired and worn looking o s if they had suffered much But still if I had to read or speak that lan- guage I'd get worn looking in no time. They simply string conso- nants together, using very few vow- els and not pronouncing those. We went through the IIradeny palace where Agustus Strong. with his 90 wives and 350 children lived went through all the royal buildings, etc. One thing that surprised me about Checko-Slovakia was that their soldiers were well dressed, fine look- ing men. I had supposed they would be ragged, bolshevik looking~ like the Russian. Prague is the place where so many ga~nets are produced and I had expected to get several things set in garnets but found every- thing toe expensive. However, know bought a little cross for her. It's bolught a little cross for her. It's Just about an inch tall, or even less, and is entirely formed of six blood- red garnets. I won't risk sending it through the mail but will bring it when I come hOme. The only train out left for Vienna at 5 in the afternoon and got us into Vienna at 1 o'clock in the morning. Again we had to get off the train this time after dark, and go through the customs, but 'twas more orderly than before. Vienna is surely a beautiful city. It is claimed that Vienna is second only to Paris. We went through the royal palaces, one of which had over a thousand rooms and only one bathroom. We saw the mu~t~ma~ c$- thedrals, ate. We attended the opera "Electra" In the Royal Opera,~ House. This opera house is the most g~rge- pus I have seen. We were fortu~e enough to see Straus, the great COm- poser, the man who wrote "EleCts/' "The Blue Danube WaRz,"- etc. ,He himself conducted the 0rchd~tra:thls night--and such an orchestra, hun- dreds of inStrument~ After the ~b~a the audience would not leave'~until Stress had answered five curtain Switzerland, but there are only two] Austria the kronin varied from 760 callS, trains a week running now and theY~to620 for a dollar.
