CAUTION TO TOURISTS.– The following comes from an old correspondent:– I strongly advise my countrymen not to reside in Lausanne, unless they are prepared to submit to police requirements and official impertinence. The Swiss were highly jubilant when they obtained freedom from passports in France; but since then the Lausanne police have been more exacting than ever, and have been serving notices on tourists and English residents to show their passports or pay a fine of six francs! This is gratitude with a vengeance! We may well say ‘point d’argent point de Suisse.’ –S.J.
