WROTE LETTER TO BROTHER DESCRIBING AERIAL DUEL. Appears In Article Written for French Magazine by Late Aviator's Brother. PauL A copy of a French magazine, de voted to aircraft, was recently re ceived from France by The Citizen, and It contains an article of strong local interest written by Paul Ayres Rockwell, brother of Klflln Rockwell, the Intrepid Ashevllle aviator who lost his life in a fight with a German aeroplane last November. The article, which was published In the original French, contains among other things a letter written by Kilfln to his brother after his fKUfln's) flrat aerial engage ment. The following Is a literal translation of the magazine article, which : is entitled "The Lafayette Squadron:" "Although the term 'aeroplane' haslni, the paMt four w.eK. the colonel become a household word since the world-war began, few realize its dead ly significance In the present struggle. One must be a personal actor In an air fight before he can understand its horror. The letter which we subjoin was written by one who had such an opportunity and It throws some light on the subject for us who have not. Klffln Rockwell was pilot of one of the ships of the American air squadron which was organized in April, 1916, In France and composed of Americana who had been volun tarily serving In the allied cause, dis persed here and there in French squadrons. Among these we may mention William Thaw, who was flying in America long before the war, and Norman Prince, who first conceived the Idea of forming a dis tinctively American squadron. The following la an account of Rockwell's engagement with a German ship in the America-German air contest, May 18, 1916. He writes to his brother, Mr. Paul Ayres Rockwell: " 'My Dear Paul: " 'At last I have news for you. This morning I started to take a little turn about the lines. I was a little toward the opposite side and was making detour so as to gain an aviation field near our trenches. Just as I was, di recting my ship thither I saw a Ger man aeroplane about 700 yards be neath me and almost within our lines. Immediately I redirected my motor and headed for him. He saw me at the same moment and began to re treat toward his lines, it was a double "avion" with two machine guns of quick discharge, one In front, the other at back, turning on a pivot so as to point In every direction. The gunner opened fire on me at once and my ship was struck, but I took no heed of It and continued to make straight for him until I found myself within twenty-five or thirty yards. men just as I was In danger of, col' tiding with him I fired four or five shots and wheeled to one side In order not to strike him. At the same In stant I saw the gunner fall backward. killed, his machine abandoned to Itself point vertically and the pilot fan also against the side of his carllng, as If he also were annihilated. ' The vessel set off on one wing, then went straight downward, leaving a furrow Of smoke behind. - I took -some turns above the spot u and three or four minutes later I 'Saw a blase come from the earth "near the German trenches. I had hoped It would fall In our lines, as It Is difficult to au thenticate the fall ' in the German lines. Our post - of observation sig nalled the wreck and . the smoke. The captain told me he would pro pose my name for the military medal, but I don't know whether I shall get It or not. Yesterday Thaw had a fine flight, at the end of which the Ger man sank. He has been signalled as abandoning the - fight, seriously wounded but capable of returning to his lines. I am very busy now, as an order has Just reached us to re pair to Verdun. Jim telegraphed you the result of my fight. " 'Always yours, " KIFFIN.' " According to Dutch figures.

TRAINS RUN AGAIN EVERY DAY THIS WEEK. Many Expressions of Admiration for Wonderful Soenio Route Traversed by Mountain Railroad. "Breaking records for earrvinr crowds to the top of Mt. Mitchell has oecome such a common ooourrence that I scarcely feel Ilka mentioning it any more." said Col. Sanford H. Cohen, general passenger agent of the Mt Mitchell railroad, last night, "but it is a fact that we broke all rec ords for a week's business again last week. In fact the Mt. Mitchell rail road la beginning to be like McCarty's horse, whose natural gait was run ning away, he did It so often, only in the case of the railroad, It Is running away with records for crowds every week. 'We have done more business dur- continued, "than any four weeks in the history of the road, and again this week we are going to onerate trains Tuesday, Wednesday. Thurs day, Friday and Saturday in order to take care of the crowds that are al ready In sight for the trip. And at that, the size of the crowds Is not nearly as great a source of satisfac tion ts Ihe owners of the road as the strong expressions of admiration for the trip that have been evoked re cently, "We are especially pleased with Governor Blckett's praise of the trip. No one connected with the road knew that the governor was going to Mitchell, and our first Intimation that he had made the trip was In the in terview given out by him to The Citizen. William A. Cooper, coun cilor for the Juniors of Raleigh, made the trip the same day that Governor Bickett went, and he too, was charm ed with the wonderful view. Rev. W. B. Rollins, of the Theological seminary at Alexandria, Va., made the trip Thursday and declared that while he and Mrs. Rollins had made many trips, they considered the Mitchell trip the greatest of their lives. "The weather Is fine at the present time and the mountain Is at Its best so that we expect to carry still larger crowds up the Mt. Mitchell railroad this week, operating trains every day except Sunday and Monday. "I Just want to show you an expres sion from R. T. Lavell, in the New berry Observer. He wrote a three column article about Mt. Mitchell." In the article referred to, Mr. La vell says: "The scenery Is superlatively grand, I gainsay this scenery Is grand beyond description and I wish I had the power to describe the varying and changing scenes. As we ascend ed the mountain the people would go Into ecstacles and rise to their feet and point to the different views as they would see them. To see the clouds below you with the sun shin ing on them from above was sub lime. You could see miles and miles of mountain peaks In the panoramic view, it was grand, it was sublime and beyond any power of description that I could produce from my mind and brain. I cannot begin to describe It for it must be seen to even tell about it." Mr. Lavell In his article of three columns goes Into graphic details of the switch-backs and the zigzagging over the lofty peaks. An automobile alarm whistle to be connected to the cylinders of a car can be made to utilize the full force of their explosions when desired.
