BEAUTIFUL BELT NOVELTIES FROM PARIS.
f woman stocks her wardrobe with no
less than half a dozen of these prin
cess underdresses in various colors.
White is a staple color for a slin:
pale blue and pink are much mere ef- j
tective. and they enhance the beau- j
tifu! hand work en the gown. The '
pink is equally dainty and effective. '
and when this color is more becoming
to a woman than blue it is wise fcr
her to choose it. thouch the latter is
more of a summer sllade than those i
bordering on the rose. !

A m-usseau set consisted of ten i
pieces. There were the usual pieces
of underwear to put nest the skin.
These were made cf ncinsook and I

The rules of war were never observ

i'owever. there have been few com

and even those have mostly been
traced to the independent actions of

The presence of a sick or wounded
soldier m a dwelling house confers
protection upon it and exempts its
other occupants irom having troops

are forbidden to requisition the prop

"Wounded prisoners of war must be
sent back to their own country as
soon as cured, on condition of not re
turning to the seat of hostilities, or
again bearing arms during the rest

Among other things forbidden are
the employment of poison, or of poi

No exception was. however, taken

and a spy who. after rejoining the

quently captured, becomes a prisoner

his previous acts of espionage.
Also, the convention nade it very
clear who were, and vno were not

Thus, soldiers not in disguise found

punished as spies, even although they
may be there for no ether purpose

Upon coming to France I felt a
sense of deep humiliation to think
that the most fascinating berojof our
revolution and the father of the Amer
ican navy. John Paul Jones, had been
permitted to lie for more than a cen
tury in an unknown and forgotten
j zrave in a foreign land and that no
I serious effort had been made to rescue
. cis remains from oblivion, ilore than,
i five years ago upon my cwn responsi
i bility I began a systematic search for
the recovery of his body. It was be-
iaved to have been buried in a ceme- ' shaft on the premises, and at a depth
erv for foreign Protestants, presum- j of seventeen feet the bodies of tho
iblv the old Si. Louis cemetery in the j dead were found undisturbed. Tho
lortheastern quarter of Paris, al- j ground had been leveled up and is cov
hnugh several authors had mentioned j ered with, buildings,

T nfcrtunately the public records over a year an agreement was finaUy,
iid been disturbed and scattered dur-
.ng tht revolution, and the registers
f foreign Protestant curia's burned
ty the commune in 1ST!. Fortunately,
an archeologtst had preserved a copy
3f the register containing Paul Jones
certificate of ouriai. but no mention
was made of ihe place of interment.
Search was then made jf the records
of the national assembly which had
nonored PauJ Jones" memory by ap
pointing a distinguished delegation to
attend his funeral, also if newspapers
of that date. July 20. 1792. zs well as
records of many departments of the
public service, of registers of all
known cemeteries and of the Protest
ant church, whose pastor delivered the
funeral oration, but by a singular fa-
tality no mention was made as to
where the remains had been depos
ited. Finally, direct information, corrobo
rated by circumstantial evidence, was
obtained which made it certain that
Paul Jones had been buried in the now
rbandoned St. Lou:s cemetery. Among
other evidence, a most interesting let-
