connected with a British hospital
unit on the Italian front for several
months past, arrived in Tryon last
Sunday, lopking as fine as he did be
fore leaving home. He has many in
teresting experiences to relate in con
nection with his duties at the front.
He says he has learned to love the
Italian people, and says that of all
the enemy nations none have stooped
so low or done so many vile things as I
the Germans, ihe reputation the
Turk has achieved is far from right,
so Mr. Brownlee declares. He says
that the Turk absolutely refused to
use gas in warfare, and that they
took splendid care of prisoners. The
stories we have heard of the suffer
ings of the Italians as well as others
of our allies are in no sense exagger
ated, says Mr. Brownlee, but that we
haven't heard the half. He says that
ham and bacon sell for $4.00 per
pound, eggs, 20 cents each, while a
oroiler size chicken sells for $4.00.
Tho middle and poorer classes of It
aly have not tasted fats of any kind
for many months, butter being an un
known article of dietj So sure . of
success was the Jvaiser that he ac
tually had paper money printed, to be
used when the Germans and Aus
trians had- captured Venice. Mr.
Brownlee has a piece of money to
verify this story. The Italians are
great fighters, says he ai.d have fair,
