: New York, May " 16. One of 'Car
todnist Webster's thrills that comes
once in a lifetime 5came to the writer
along with hundreds of other New
Yorkers last week., I saw the 10$
Tarn o Shantered, red-cheeked, -boyish
demons the Chasseurs a Pieds,
the Blue Devils of France, whose feats
at arms would, make a thousand
epics.. And jhe f same day I saw the
1 0 -Pershing fighters. Pershing's vet
erans they are called.
Onfrof the veterans 1 saw was fully
19 years old. He had been gassed
and bombed and shelled in France.
Tin hat on the back of his' head, gun
slung from his shoulder, brown of
face and lean with the leanness that
means steel muscles, he swung eas
ily alongsmiling at everyone.-
Some about J50 years old seemed old
indeed in comparison to the majority
of the veterans. They were boyish;
enough to be thrilled by the adula
tion, of the. crowds. They, delighted
in the cheers and handclaps and
showed it plainly and that is what
endeared them more than ever to
Laughing singing, happy boys will
ing to go to their death for America.
No wonder New Yorkers saw them,
and wept openly and unashamed.
' Fathers cried On each other's shoul
ders. -T saw a big full-woodett nuiK
;nf,a man standing on the curb as
the Pershing men went by. He haa
x cigar in his mouth, and he tried to
call out , some words of encourage
ment, but he couldn't talk. His
throat closed - and tears streamed
down his cheeks.
" Alongside of him was a little white
faeed woman. I believe she Was. a
mother. Unconsciously she gripped
my hand. She held it tightly as
the boys went singlns by. Not a tear
came to her eye.. She looked upon
them with the lenderest look that I
ever- - saw. Her . lips mumbled in
prayer and I heard her say: "God
bring! him back to me!" and I
Y could- stand no more. I stumbled
away from her.
The' Blue Efevils made an inspiring
picture about the streets with their
round, flat sagging caps, wind beaten
faces, their dark blue uniforms, the
stripes on their right arms meaning
wounds and on their left years of
Return to Fayetteville.
..Cadets of Donaldson Military acad
emy, who spent the past week on
Harbor Island, broke camp early this
morning and returned to Fayette
Tille on the 8:45 train. The cadets
took full advantage of the many op
: portunities for recreation at" the sea
f shore and much time was spent fish-
' dets were victorious in a couple of
ball games played in the city also.
WHATSOEVER MAN SOWETH
1 THAT ALSO SHALL HE REAP
"Sowing and Reaping," or "what
soever a man soweth that shall he
also reap," will be the sermon topic
of -Evangelist Homer N. Rutherford
'at . tonight's evangelistic services, cor
ner of Grace and Seventh streets, and
all ; are invited to attend. Mr. Ruth
erford was heard by a large , and in
terested congregation last night, in
terest continuing to gro wwith the
passing of each day. The services are
to; continue for an indefinite period
and the general public, is given an
earnest invitation to attend.
' r : :
-More than 300 women, many of
them college girls, have registered
fbr service on New England farms
! A woman appeared on; Fifth avenue
the other day with a hat trimmed
with gilded chicken feet. The next
day a bonhet Appeared trimmed
with English walnuts cracked open
to show the kernels. Another hat
was made of a single aligator skin
garnished with a single grar squirrel.
There are lots of new millinery
thoughts to brighten these sad times.

"Charlie, Chaplin almost broke up
three shows in one evening on Broad
way as (the result of being piloted
around by a . New York newspaper
man. He may be a low-brow come
dian but he loves highbrow plays and
wanted to see Mazimova in "A Doll's
The audience recognized him and
it almost became necessary for the
management to ask him to leave.
From there he went over to see FreJ
Stone and his presence In the box
resulted in his being half the show
The chorus girls became enamored.
Up atop the Century Grove, the
chorus girls bid on a chance to kiss
him and the highest bidder was to
get a kiss and a liberty bond. Chap
lin wound up his evening at Child's
eating buckwheat cakes, and the
cooks and waiters refused to work.
Chaplin is a child surprised by his
success and sometimes he wonders
if it isn't a dream. He calls himself
a "highlow-brow" comedian and de
fines it as "one who' is grateful for
life and gets every good he can out
of every good thing." He, haa no
hobbies, no fads or "missions."
He loves art in its highest form.
He has been to hear Galli-Curci sing,
seen Challfl dance, watched C. D.
Gibson draw. He looks much like a
boy in his sophomore year at college.

NAME "NEW BERLIN" SOUNDS
ENTIRELY TOO PRO-GERMAN
'There is a movement on foot and
it promises to be put through as
speedily as the slow but sure wheels
of the government will permit, to
change the name of the village of
yew Berlin, located 19 miles, south
of this city, on the Wilmington, Co
lumbia and Augusta division of the
Atlantic Coast Line railroad. Citi
zens of the prosperous little village
recently in the city have expressed
much dissatisfaction about the name
of their town owing to the fact that
it was named several years ago in
