the people at the brad of the War depart
ment and the army of the United States
when they began the agitation which re
sulted in the creation ot the general staff
of the army. The term general staff does
not mean much to the person who la un
familiar with the formation of the armies
of Europe. The officers of the army above
the rank of major have bad personal staffs
ever since the organization of the army.
The regular staff of the army, constating of
tfte officers who have charge ot certain
duties not actually connected with the
arm in battle, has been a part of the or
ganization since Ua Inception. These offi
cers devote their time to matters of sup
plying the troops with clothing, as In the
quartermaster's department, or with food,
aa In the commissary's department; with
medical attendance and with the Inspection
of troops, as well as making reports upon
their effectiveness and other work which Is
to a great degree clerical or technical with
a technology other than that purely mili
tary. 4
Bad System Inherited.
The regular establishment of the army of
the Vnlted States was Inherited, like our
common law and many other things good,
bad and Indifferent, from the English, and
In consequence the establishment wss
purely military. Each officer ia drilled at
this time with special reference to the
command of troops and their maneuvers
upon the field of battle. After he haa grad
uated from the Military academy he enters
the line, and after serving there for a
longer or shorter time he may be trans
ferred, either temporarily or permanently,
Jn-ihe staff, where he Is expected to learn
' the duties of his office while practicing
them. He, in times of pesce, usually de
pends upon some old sergeant who bas been
through the mill under a dozen or more offi
cers, and In reality learns little or nothing
ot the duties, so that when the time comes
(or him to act to prepare men for a cam
paignhe la almost helpless. This Is said
with no spirit ot criticism, but Is generally
admitted by officers ot the army and per
sons familiar with the conditions. It is not
I the fault of the officers, but of the system
I a system, by the way, which wss frVst
permanently installed in the regular army
when General Greene accepted the position
of commissary general in the army of Gen
eral Washington with the understanding
that be was to be given a command as soon
as his services might be required. Its ef
fects were last felt In the Spatilsh war.
when carloads of perishable goods were
rendered worthless because they could not
be aent to the troops who required them.
, Gcrnia Method Adopted.
The general staff Is intended to correct
all these evils. For the American army
has departed from the English system of
organization and has taken the German as
Its example, hoping to make aome Improve
merits in the course of time upon that sys
tern, which is said to be the most complete
in Europe. The German system waa the
favorite idea t Field. Marshal von Moltke,
who was for years the chief ot staff ot the
German army. , The object ot the general
staff can be shown in the fewest wards by
relating an Incident which has passed Into
tradition in the armies of the world. It is
related that one evening word waa brought
to Von Moltke that the French had declared
the war which lasted until the surrender of
Taris. The veteran chief of staff, who had
been one of the men wh formed the Oerman
emrjiro. without changing countenance
said: "Take the papers from drawer 2".'
When drawer 27 was opened it was found
that it contained orders which were lmme
dlatcly Issued for the movements ot the
German army, placing the troops In the
most advantageous position to repel French
Invasion and to make aggressive move
ri' m. It Is said that every general order
ftaued for the first thirty daya of the war
commanding the movement of troops was
foirnd in the drawer at the time Von Moltke
had it opened. .
Moat Prepare for War.
So this Is to be the duty ot the general
staff of tho army ot the United States. It
Is. in times of peace, to prepare for war.

bsslng Ita organisation upon the Oerman
system, the general staff of the American
army may not prepare a drawer with coun
ter orders. France was not tho only pros
pective enemy which Germany bad pre
pared for and there were other drawers, so
In the Vnlted States one ot the duties of
the general staff will be to decide what
course the army ot the United States should
follow In case of war with any particular
nation. 8hould war be with Mexico the
movement of the troops would be radically
different from what It would be In case ot
war Involving Canada. War with Franca
would mean one movement and war with
China another. All of these possible con
tingencies must be considered by the gen
eral staff and tentative plans adopted to
provide for any condition.
Other Problems to Solve.
But It is not with the movement of troops
alone that the general staff will deal. In
its membership are representatives of every
department Ot the army the ataff positions
ot the present dsy. These representatives
will ba expected to take such part In the
preparation for possible wars as to know
exactly what each ot tho troops In those
departments . will be required to do. For
example, the representatives ot the commis
sary department on the general staff will
ba expected to know Just how much food
will be tequlred for any probable move
ment, and not only that, but bow It can
best ba transported to the troops, and tha
ration In which it should be Issued under
all circumstances. This department will
also havs to select an emergency ration
hlch, shall be permanent and shall be
Issued under certain conditions.
The quartermaster's department will be
expected, through Its representative on the
general staff, to prepare auch orders for
tba movement of troops over railway Unas,
and the transportation ot material from
depots and garrisons to the probable place
of mobilisation aa will be required by the
number of troops called at any given time.
The medical department will prepare or
ders tor the movement of the hospital corps
and the transmission of field hospitals and
medicines to the front.
qaaJiaVatloaa for tha Staff.
These are the non-mllltary features of
war, but without them the military features
would be i ill possible. The Oermsn mili
tary staff Is exceedingly militant in Ita
military features, but In the non-mllltary
features It has Uttls to do with things
military. The commissary general, or offt
cer of simllsr grsde. Is not expected to be
a tactician, or atudent of military affairs,
but he la expected to know to an ounce
how much food a man requlrea under any
condition and ta have that food ready for
tha sua when It Is needed. The chief
ot the quartermaster's department Is in
a simllsr position, lis Is not required to
know the orders necessary to form a hol
low square, but he is required to know
the orders necessary to get food to ramp
to till, a hollow stomach, and not only ta
know the orders but bow to carry them
out. It matters not thst the surgeon
should be unable to tell the difference be-
ltween a "brigade front" and a "column
ok lours, nur. in ueciiraij n.aeauai inai
he should know the effectiveness of his
hospital corps and how they can best be
bandied whea needed. '
These are tho things which the general
staff of the army Is to tske under con
siderationpractical questions which will
make it unnecessary for officers to learn
their duties while experimenting upon men
In the field or In csmp. It Is expected
that the new system of encampments of
regulars and National Guards will . give
the members of the general staff and the
officers of the departments an opportunity
to become more familiar with conditions
and requirements of troops In camp and
field than any other plan that bas been
In vogue In times ot peace.
Military Feavtares Essential.
It Is not alone with the nonmllltary fea
tures that the new general staff will deal.
The staff bas many mora officers upon it
not connected with these departments than
are so connected. Their questions will be,
after all, mainly military in the strictest
sense. Proposed changes In arms will be
considered; amendments to ths drill regu
lations and the manual of arma; Improve
ments In tha methods ot handling troops
of the different arms of the service; any
thing which In any way affects tha army
will bo submitted to the officers ot the
general staff for consideration.
The personnel of the staff has been pub
lished and each member selected by the
board of general officers and approved by
the secretary of war Is said by his fellow
officers to be entirely qualified tor the
work. The generals who are to take active
part In the staff havs not at this Urns
been announced. It Is understood that they
will be men who have comparatively long
terms of service before them, so that they
may be given an opportunity to test some
of the plans which they have mads It
required. But the whole object of the
general ataff is not really to prepare for
actual warfare, but to make tha army and
Its auxiliaries, tjie National guards, so
effective that war against ths United States
will never be declared, and so superior
to any other that no nation will force this
country to declare wsr.
The following announcement has been
telegraphed from rursl Ohio, and is Im
portant if true: "The lower set of false
teeth which Charles Wilgru of West Mans
field had awallowed and for which an op
eration was performed on him Saturday,

Aa eloping couple ot blind persons were
married In Cambridge, Mass., last Tuesdsy.
The clergyman who officiated afterward
said that he thought the law ought to pro
hibit such msrrtages, but the bridegroom
had obtained a license, and. "though he
didn't like the Idea." he "did hla duty."
He added: "I felt compelled to do It, be
cause I sympathized with them, sod then
somebody would hsve to perform the cere
mony anyway."
Rer. James C. Bradley, a young preacher
of Guthrie, Ok!., made a funny alip of ths
tongue a couple of months ago, but 'is very
glad of It now. He was leading the serv
ices st a young people's meeting and In
the course of bis prsyer said: "Oh, Lord,
give as cleso hearts, humble hearts, pure
hearts, sweet hearts." Tba laat caused a
titter which nearly broke up ths service.
After ths meeting was over one of ths
young sitters Jokingly inquired if ba really
meant it. Her question gave -him an op
portunity to plead a suit ho had feared to
suggest hitherto, and the culmination of
his odd mistake In the pulpit came In his
union laat week to the girl who had Joked
him about It.
Here is a curious advertisement, repub
lished in The Cornhlll Magazine from an
eighteenth century paper: "Wanted For

steady person. In the capacity of a doctor,
surgeon and apothecary. He must occa
sionally act In the capacity of butler and
dress balr and wigs. He will be required

a sermon every Sunday. The reason of this
advertisement Is that tha family cannot

Someone has deeply injured tba feelings
of the editor of the Hardeman (Tenn.) Free

George K. Warner, who owns and operates
a large wheat farm In tba Red River valley,
North Dakota, hopes he baa cured one
Duluth girl of the gum chewing habit, even
though at a cost of ISO. Mary Margracs
is a pretty waitress In a Chinese restaurant
In the Duluth Bowery, and Warner dropped

Msrgrace took bis order and she wss chew

her with manifest disapproval.
"I detest gum chewers," he said, and she
lsugbed merrily. "Tell you what I'll do,"
he continued. "I'll buy a loO dreas If you

me never to chew gum again. What do

"I aay It's a bargain," said the girl, and
