THIRST FOR NEWS THE
ONE PASSION IN PARIS
One- of tho particularly striking
things of this time of stress and ex

evory human being "for a newspaper.
Tho little mldluettes who usually read
nothing but tho serial story, tho omni
bus conductors, the finely dressed wo
men in their llmouslnos, every one
reads evory edition of every paper.

agined that tho nice young man who
marcels your hair Is a cuirassier and
will perhaps bo charging around with
a gleaming brcastplato and n heavy
saber in place of a curling iron with
which he will treat heads.

Tho burgomaster claimed for tho

prepared to surrender the city, with
tho threat that othorwlso It would be
bombarded, tho burgomaster said he

At the railroad station tho great

At ono point of tho march a lama

What It Costs to Kill One
Man in Modern Warfare
Tho cost of killing a mnn Is ob
tained by dividing tho total cost of a
wnr to any of tho belligerents by tho
number of men killed on tho other
In 1870-1871 Franco spent $400,000,
000 In tho actual expenses of the war.
Repairing materials and giving succor
to the victims of tho war, expenses
thnt are Justly to be added, cost an
other $200,000,000. Franco paid $1,
000,000,000 as war Indemnity, plus an
other $400,000,000 in interest on tho
sum, loss of revenue, forced contribu
tions by tho enemy and upkeep of tho
Gorman Army of occupation. This
third category of expenses, not being
lnovltable In all wars, cannot properly
On a similar basis hero are some
facts about other wars:
'RusBo-Turklsh war (1877-1878)
Russo-Jnpancso war (1905) Russia,
The number of men killed or who
died of wounds In these wars wero:
Franco-Prussian war Germans, 28,
600. Russo-Turktsh war Russians, 16.
600. Russo-Japanese war Japanese, 68,
600. Whence It results that the cost of
killing each man was as follows:
In 1870-1871, $21,000.
In 1877-1878. $16,000.
In 190D, $20,400.
What will kill the greatest number
and reduce tho effectlvo force most
will bo not tho rifle or cannon, but
fatigue, typhus. or cholera.

tho founder of St. Petersburg, as well
