Opening for Good Publicity Agents.
It will f'rang'? If our astute and recouree
f ii 1 American publicity agents do not find lucra
tive employment during the war in Europe,
where the demand and opportunity for their
service ?erm to lie running neck and neck.
.Inciting from the rhaimodle finding their
way out of the various seats of war throuph the
official renvrKulp, one may misprct that some
of thee opportunities have already been em
braced. Thus, for example, runs a report of one
of the allies' commanders:
Tn this attack fmr trooie allowed admltahle ila'h.

The on-the-spot war correspondent. It Is
quite agreed, has become an anachronism, and
by the name token the modern publicity agent.
In the role of official censor, seems to have
stepped Into th breech. If the same care used
in shaping these florid accounts Is exercised in
seeing that they reach the eyes of the soldiers,
then surely It will be found that advertising
pays In the business of war as well as in the pur
suit of peace.
Socking the Abienteei.
The house's adoption of the I'nderwood mo
tion deducting the pay for time members are
absent unless 111 will encounter no disapproval
from the folks at home. Possibly It might have
been as well to allow a maximum number of
days for alienee, but the plan adopted will
answer the purpose.
This action was taken after several inef
fectual efforts to get a quorum for the transac
tion of business. Many members were at home
patching up their fences, looking out for their
personal Interests in the primary election and
getting ready for the final balloting. From
time ImmeniorlHl this has been done and re
garded as entirely legitimate. As a matter of
fact, It amounts In tho long run.to a manifesta
tion of the Kentle art of graft.
When the public business demands a session
of congress, there is no Justification for Us
members to go gallivanting over the country. If
they are not needed In their seats, then congress
should sdjourn and cut off the expense of con
tinuing In session. One sure way of stopping thin
abuse, If the docking system falls. Is for tho
voters to retire the man who putsxlnto campaign
ing time hich, when he accepted the Job, he
engaged to devote to the affairs of government.
Land and Food.
Hegardlens of the fact that the wpectacle of
able-bodied gentlemen pursuing golf balls for
pleasure and recreation at a time when patriots
of all classes are responding to their cuuntry's
call to arniK, would hardly be edifying, the pro
l.otal lo plow up 2.000 English golf links and
hum'ng preerves to relievo the pressure for
food directs intention to a vital question. Many
experts believe shortage of food will -yet end
the war In any event, it will have much to do
with It. Kvery warring nation Is sacrificing Its
producing powers to the struggle, prance is said
to have summoned every man In city and country
able to bear arms and Germany all of military
age. Russia, Austria. England. Servla and the
rest are steadily enlarging their operations.
Fields, factories, marts and mills are deserted,
Industry and agriculture waits whllo the battle
rages. It will not take long to exhaust supplies
on hand and to experience difficulty In buying
But with England the need of land for farm
ing Is pressing In peiic or war. The entire area
of England und Wales Is only GS.D75 square
miles, as compared, for example, with Ne
braska's 77,510. Including Scotland and Ireland,
the aren- Is only 131.891 square miles.' True,
there was, even before the war, some vacant
farming land in England as a result of emigra
tion and diversion of the tido of population city
ward, but this docs not mitigate the problem of
land and food supply, which, serious enough
ordinarily, becomes alarming in war.
The Most Promiting Solution.
The ridiculous feature ut the primary law, which
probably lends to excite nivre disfavor for It than
any other, Is the Invitation It extends to the'tlowna
ttnd crooks to inn for office. It Imposes no require
ments as to qualification or popularity. Any fool can
run for the highest office within the atft of tho peo
pie If he can raise the amount of the filing fee. No
body need want him to run. Nobody need think that
lie would make a good officer. Ho may he crooked,
disreputahlo and without senao enough to wad a gun.
It la a fact that n good many men now tun for office
under our Ulrevt primary law simply for the adver
tising they mu- get out of It, and there la no lnw
ti protect the purity of udvertlaln- of that kind. A
fool or a crook can jump Into the primary simply In
order to JcvpurdUo Hit- proepacts of a good man and
help nominate and elect another crook or fooL Lin
The most promising solution of this prob
lem that we know of Is the ahort ballot. No
law will transform clowns Into statesmen, nor
make crooks Into honest men. No law has yet
been written, and no method devised, that will
prevent anyone otherwise possessed of the legal
qualifications (rom running for office if really
beut on doing so, no matter what his purpose
or how certainly futile his quest. The short
ballot, however, will help the voters distinguish
the fool and crook who, cloaked by the present
confusion attendant on multiplied 'elective of
fices, have belter than a gambler's chance of
winning out by the votes of people who do not

T rSAJTK B. TIIETZUT,
(Managing Editor of. New Standard Dictionary.)
On the day following Hedan. Napoleon wrote a
short autograph letter to the king of Trussla:
"Sire, My Brother:
"Not having hern allowed to die In the midst of
my troops, all that Is left for me to do la to place my
sw'ord In y ur majesty a hands.
With the surrender of the fortress M,Y1 men laid

t:p. Three thousand men cscsped Into Belgium and
laid down their arms.
The king's reply was equally brief: .
"My Brother: '
"I accept your sword, and ask you to appoint a
Plenipotentiary with whom the negotiations pertain
ing to the capitulations may be concluded.
Then to Von Moltke he gave full power to dictate
terms and directed FHmarrk to settle all political
q'teatlona. De. wtmptfen came to represent France.
The terms demanded were unconditional enxrender.
On hearing this, Nspvleon determined to attempt In
tercession with the king, i He left Sedan at & o'clock
In the morning and alighted on the roadside near
Ivmehery. Here Rlsmarck met him, cap In hand, and
under the walls of , little house hy the wayside the
two conferred about an hour. Napoleon's efforts to
get mro favorable terms were uselees. niamarck
declined to discuss the matter, and during the Inter
view received word from Von Moltke that the fallen
emperor could see the king only after tho capitula
tion had been algnod. This dissipated all hopes of
milder terms. goon after, De Wimpffen was met hy
Von Moltke, bearing the. articles of capitulation,
which were eventually signed. This paper w-aa then
taken to King William, who Immediately on Its re
ceipt set out bo call upon the emperor. "We were
both," said the king In his letter to his wife, "deeply
moved at thua meeting again. What I felt, having
seen Napoleon three years ago In the very summit
of his power, I can not describe."
Four days after theae events, Napoleon III, em
peror In name only, now a prisoner of war, was
lodged at Wllhelmshohe, a castle near Tassel, to be
detained until the termination of the war.

Hut how was the surrender of MacMahon's army
received In Paris? On the night preceding the omln
ouh 4th or Peptember, vagus rumors of Impending
disaster were afloat; but the bulk of Paris went to
bed that night In bllssfull Ignorance of the catas
trophe which had befallen France. On the following
morning the Place de la Concorde fairly glittered with
bayonets, and the French realized that something out
of the ordinary was to take place. Tho National
Ciuard had massed rlor to advancing on the Corps
Leplslatlf. Marching to the Pont de la Concorde, the
troops faced the gendarmes posted to hold the bridge.
A short parley ensued, and the bridge was clear to
advancing battalions, which, with cries of "Vive U
Repiibllque.:" hastened to the Palais Bourbon, whero
they fraternized with the troops on guard, and the
revolution was accomplished.
In the face of the enemy, the French were not
particularly concerned about their position. They
delighted in demonstrating to each other the Impossi
bility of a complete Investment, and with the boom
ing of the enemy's guns tn the distance they kept on
singing the "Marseillaise" and shouting "A Berlin!"
But the Inhabitants and the refugees, as the Ger
mans drew closer, soon realised the siege was to' be
more than child's play. Three days after the Invest
ment of the city, a Party of Englishmen, anxious to
return home, attempted to run the blockade in com
puny In a' conventional traveling carriage and pcir.
To the roof of their vehicle they tied the British flag
and a white banner, and, as though setting out for
a picnic, Inside they plied up hampers with provisions
to last three days. Setting out from the Grande hotel
In the direction of Neullly, they got aa far as the
French outposts, where, for want of a permit signed
by the governor of Paris, they were turned back.
Baffled by red tape and routine, but not disheartened,
they managed to obtain the necessary pass, but too
late to set out again that day, and they renewed tholr
attempt on the morrow.
Getting clear of the French lines, they met with a
series of melodramatic adventures In their endeavors
to penetrate those of the enemy. Continually stopped
at the German outposts, at one time they were flying
from the flie of neodle guns on to face the chasse
pots of the French pickets, and when they succeeded
in parleying with a German cavalry officer, nothing
but a special permit from the crown prinoe of Prus
sia, to whom they a-ldiessed a written appeal, enabled
them to proceed to Versailles. Thither they were led,
ell blindfolded, by a troop of cavalry, and aftr
being searched snd examined by General von Blumen
thai, they were allowed to proceed to England by way
of .Holms, ftedau and Belgium. Other attempts to
pass through the lln.a were made, but only one xras
suoceaaful. This was permitted as a. special ' favor
to the British government Ovys of the queen'a mes
sengers had been caught in the city, and' endeavored
to get out. and it waa only through the courtesy of
Oeneral von Blumenthal that he was allowed to go on.
For' four months the Germans endeavored to starve
Paris Into submisakm. Then they 'decided to bombard
the city. The first shell, which was fired on tha
afternoon of January b. 1ST1, fell In the Rue Lata ode.
A clock Power lo this vicinity waa the objective, and
soon shells began to fall thick and fast in the neiga
borhood. As night drew on, the cannonade became
more violent, and the range of the hostile artlllory
expanded. During the first night twenty-sla houses
were destroyed. Early the next day shot and shell
fell continuously, especially In the Latin Quarter, and
several persona wero killed. Having ascertained the
range of their artillery, the Germans thereafter de
cided on a continuous bombardnment at night, hoplnir
thus to terminate tho siege speedily. But they were
mistaken snd compelled to keep up an Incessant fire.
From sunrise to sunset, from the rising of the moon
till its shining splendor waa dimmed by the bright
ness if the day, Herr Krupp's messengers of death
sped on their course from the German batteries. On
thtiy came, frequently at the rate of 100 an hour,
plunging- with a crash thiough house roofs, now
bunting Into bedrooms, disturbing the slumbers ef
their tiied Inmates. "Moltke's music," ss the French
facetiously called It. wss heard on every side, yet
the deluded Inhabitant kept t-'p their cries of "Vive
la France!" and "Vive Paris!"
And Paris did live, but held cut only Just ss long
as its provisions would permit. When the end came,
the city had powder left, but there wss no more
bread, and It must bow Its head In the presence of a

AVlthla forty-eight hours of their entry Into the city,
the Germans withdrew to Versailles, which they left,
taktrg up their march for home on the lith.
Hut an event of great historic nlmlficance had
taken place some time before at the PaJaee ef Ver
