A Visit To The Paris Shops,
Then Back To Home Sweet Home;
Last OfMissHord’s Trip Abroad
ttail ol a senes of .moresling ar
ticles written by Mis- Kathleen
Hord. especially for The Star on
“My Trip Abroad.”)
On August the first we left Paris
at 10 a. m. for Cherbourg, Prance
where we were to sail for the U. S.
that night. I think ail of us were
ready to come horn.’, too, because
everyone in the party had been go
ing to many places and seeing r.o
many things in the great French
metropolis that each one thought
the trip home would be so restful,
peaceful and quiet. We arrived in
Cherbourg about 4 o’clock that aft
ernoon and since our boat wasn't
due until 7 p. m. we went down
town, after having checked our
hags end putting, them cn tiie ten- j
der, tim boat which was to take us j
out to Stuttgart our steamer, "j
(lets •’High Hatted.'’
We • v icnie lovely shops and j
one tk» girls and 1 decided *.v'2 j
would to in and try on some hats •
buying one was out pi the question ■
—I had $lo to my name so we v.ent
In; the man was very nice to us
and y-x out several hats ior us to
try oh; we asked the price, and
non" of them were under $15. You
can ir'aglnc how? quickly we put
them down, when ve did this, re
sot >, Tlectly furious, and beg' n
rhatt. .ini; in French, every phras
or f j tvs could■ understand 'ret
out cf here,” • e just stood and Hs-.
tened. that" of course made hi'?
.madder, so he tried <o push us out.
but "«■ just took our time, for it tn1
too funny being treated like that. 1
Miink we went in eveiy shop ir.
’Cherbourg. but, that vas the only
one <4*‘ •••■•— told to ge* out..
Cos Delays Boa .
We had to wait on the boat n
hour and forty minutes; it was late
on account of a terrible fog off the
roast of England. Finally, at 8:45
we went on board; if this steamer
didn't look small after being on the
Bremen; it was five limes smaller
than the one we came over on, ana
traveled 14 or 15 mile'; an hour
how slow! It carried 730 passengers.
When we went to our cabins and
took off our hats we went to supper
the dining room v.as awfully pretty
and there were lovely cut flowers
everywhere. The meal was gr»r.d.
Believe me that helps a lot in cross
ing if you have good things to er,
for there Is no jumping into your
ear and driving down town for
something to suit your appetite.
Waters Become Aroused.
We could hardly tell we were mov
ing, for It was a smooth night on
(hose-to-be rought waters! Every
one slept good and nSffc morning, it
wasn’t quite so pleasant for some,
because just before breakfast the
ocean became terribly aroused over
something, and the feeling, to; sev
eral members of ihe party, was
’down ” but soon af-er you saw
them run to the rail you would
know that it (the funny feeling,
was "up and Out.” I ate a good
ireakfast, and it stayed with me
too^maybe my time is coming' I
nope not though, for it was pitiful
in a way to see those sick people. I
could hardly find enough to get up
a table of bridge, that's how sick
they were, but it was only the first
day out and we hoped for betfcef
Next day was sunny and warm
About 3 o’clock in the afternoon we
docked at Queenstown, Ireland, to
get 25 more passengers We could see
t lie green hills and a little of the
Irish port, and that was all.
That night in the dining room
v e had a “kino” or moving picture
it wasn't a talkie, but a good, funny
dent one. The steward told us we
hould have several pictures durim;
he time we were on the boat. We
v aid have two more ruid they were
no deck, because it was a quiet
night and warm too.
Read Six Books.
There was a good library on the
boat and I read six boohs. At night
v.e usually played bridge, danced or
*ust sat on the deck and looked at
the beautiful moon and its sum
mering reflection on the ocean; it
! >oked, In the far distance, as If we
might soon be coming into a city
for the light of the moon was so
bright, that the horizon looked just
ke a city.
Some of the girls who said on
j nur trip to Europe, that they want
| d a storm, surely had enough con
ig home. There were two davs
hlch we might call really good
ays, the others were stormy and
try rough, not all day long, but
most of the day.
One night we were awakened
rbout three o'clock by the sounds
cl the fog horn,. We were scared
stiff, of course we were sinking, but
we sat up in bed and the boat was
sanding still; we looked out the
: ort hole and couldn’t even see the
ater it was so foggy—that’s why
e boat had stopped and we
cod out there in tl|e middle of the
cean for almost an hour. We just
d this twice, for if we hadn’t, prob
)ly another boat would have hit
Next to the last night we were cn
ard we had a masquerade ball in
e dining room. It was deeorafed
i - auttfUlly and at dinner that night
, ur menus had our names on them
cc on eslde then on the other was a
seven course dinner; it was good
and everyone enjoyed, lor those
who had been so sick had gotten
t'sed to it and were strong and
hearty once again.
Htorm Delays Docking.
We are supposed to dock tomor
row—Sunday—in New York, but it
seems we ll never get home. Early
in the morning everyone was en-,
ceuraged, because the ocean was1
smooth and we were traveling along
top sliced—15 miles an hour! About
11 o'clock, I went on deck ancf no
ticed that the clouds were getting
dark—here we were 50 miles from
lend and another storm arising,
Soon the whole sky was almost black
and looked just like smoke boiling
out of a big engine—the wind began
to blow, and X don't think I have
'ever heard it blow so hard. It be-!
ggn raining, then the lunch bell
rang: we were afraid to eat, for Iht
thunder and lightening and wind
were so awful. We all knew wed
never see land again noiv, for ,the
boat was surely ‘reeling and rock
ing" but in an hours time, the sun
.was shining and the sea was so
■ month there was haraly a wave, ex
cept those caused by the boat. At
5:30 land was sighted. You can im
agine how- we felt!! All around us
V e-e sail boats, private yachts, and
sight seeing boats. It seemed the
nearer we got to land the slower the
.boat went; we passed Coney Island,
then as we got near the statue of,
Liberty the sun was setting and it,
was a beautiful picture. About 7.-45.]
we docked, walked down that steep
gangplank, and into the customs - -
the officers were kind—the ilrst
question they asked was: "Do you
have any liquors?" They didn’t
make us unpack our bags, but lust;
open them and they lifted up a faw
things, and asked a few more ques
tions then it was over, and we got
a taxi to our hotel.
And Home Sweet Home.
We telephoned home arid talked,
to our people. Told them to meet us
irt Kings Mountain on Tuesday
morning. It surely seemed good to
hear their voices again.
After a day and night in N**w
York we were ready for the train
heme. We had a grand trip on a
good American train again.
This is all—I have tried to take
you to Europe and Lack with me.
however, I know there are man",
many.things I have omitted in these
articles, but I’m not like someone
who came to see me ‘n the hospital
the other day and said to me. “You
should be like O. O. McIntyre, nave
two or three articles written in ad
vance.” I can’t imagine myself being
so energetic. I always wait und!
the last thing to Write an article,
just like we all used to put off
school themes until the day before
handing it in.
i have enjoyed writing these and
cm s cglad if I have written any
thing about another continent that
gave you something you didn't air
ready know. I just hope that some
day everyone who wants to will
cross, for it is sureiy worth it to

New York—Even queens have
alien for the testimonial idea. In a
lice, quiet, dignified way, of course,
>ut although it isn’t in writing it’s
tn endorsement just the same. This
has Just been revealed by Paul Pol
ret the famous French fashion king
who has just turned author. Hit
book entitled “Dressing This Gener
ation," Is a graphic account of Con
tinental society that will interest
every woman and almost every man
■ Per Poiret deals in celebrities just
as much us in clothes. And he has
ihad ample opportunity to study the
| foibles and whims of the great ol
j this earth. But to get back to tiueens
Poiret tells (hat when a Parisian
couturier feels that Ills atelier has
turned out a real work of art' an
Inspiration- he sends It to one of
Europe's reigning queens. And as
the tlrcss is generally meant for a
beautiful woman, the list of queens
who receive these frocks la necessar
ily restricted. WiUt the frock goes a
respectful note personally written by
the designer, begging the fair recip
ient to wear It as a specially design
ed tribute to her beauty and charm.
Tt never falls, And the least that the
queen Tan do is to permit herself to
be photographed in the gorgeous
gown, And then every Woman wants
a copy of it and the subtle testi
monial has been successful.
Tea And Mannequins.
Pallet recalls the storm in a
thimble that was the talk of London
during the Asquith tenancy of No.
10 Downing Street. Margot Asquith
—one of London's most enterprising
hostesses, crossed the Channel to
ask Potret to bring Ills Spring col
lection, benuttful gowns, lovely man
nequins and all to No. 10. Ho war;
pleas'd to go, and the tea was a
huge success. Pur once men were
much in evidence at an afternoon
affair, und statesmen, dukes and
princes remained all ttie afternoon
to sip tea and gaze not at the cloth
ps but at the beautiful mannequins.
Then came the dawn of the storm.
Polret was besieged by cameramen,
who begged him to allow them to
photograph the lovely model In the
latest Poiret lingerie. It Was done,
and newspaper headlines screamed
about "Semi-nude mannequins in
the Empire Council Room."
Questions were asked In the House
of Commons, the London Times was
besieged with letters from "Indig
nant Readers,’* and Herbert Asquith
spent n miserable few weeks until
the storm abatei.fi , Margot Asquith
ha: never since visited the Poiret
Another scandal. In Parts this
time, that nrou ed much gossip con
cerned the Baron and Baroness de
Rothschild, Poiret overheard the
Baroness remark, in the presence of
Important clients, that she had nev
er seen uglier gowns and uglier
mannequins than In the current
Polret collection. Polret showed the
Baroness the door. Next day arrived
the Baron who wanted Polret to
confirm the news that he had ask
ed the Baroness to leave his estab
lishment. Poiret admitted It was so.
Then Rothschild expressed his ap
proval and delight and promised to
send someone who adored Polret
models. The next day. Mme. Gllda
Darthy, a friend of the Baron's and
a famous Parisian beauty, appear
ed at Poli-el's nnd made her initial
purchase at a dazzling figure. She
was no longer In danger of meeting
the Baroness de Rothschild there.
Polret gives a graphic account of
the famous fete given by Bonl de
Caetellane when he was scattering
the Gould millions. The dressmaker
was engaged by de Castellano to
stage the fete and outdid himself.
The party has gone down in the an
nals of Parisian society as one of
the most lavish affairs ever given.
