That he would receive a commission was inevitable, because Franklin Beard is the best qualified young mm without similar education to be a commissioned officer in auy arm of tne military service, other than a graduate of West Point, that can be had, because he is a graduate, with honors, of the Kentucky Military Institute and held a Captain's commis sion at the time of his graduation The high standard of military train ing given at that institution is only exceeded by the training given at the V S. Military Academy at West Point, and all graduate, of it and other kindred State Military Institutions, are in line for immediate promotion to higher commands. A notable fact in connection with his enlistment is that he volunteered his services, as a private, when too young to have been drafted, and too, well knowing that later his services as a commissioned officer would be demand ed, as such has now been. Moreover, Franklin in thus volunteering, surrendered all the comforts and pleasures of s a young life in exchange for the of a soldier's life, but his country's demands in its great crisis was paramount to all, with him. A splendid example set by a splendid young man, representative of the highest type of our country's young manhood, now on the altar of his country to sacrifice all, if needs be, for its salvation.

Meg is a spy, and her spying la the more dangeroua for the fact that she la the 'guardian angel' of the daughter of tbe French war minister. "Thla story, written with a certain grace of style, set all France talking, and many a bourgeois family scrutln- Ized with horror their stocklsh, but hardworking Westphallan maid, who knew little outside the 'small household and who, moreover, had conceived a real affection for the children. "I confesatl was Inclined to laugh at ;the spy scare, but some time before the war I uaed to meet on the staircase of a modest and quiet little private hotel the dame who stood for the original of Meg. She had an apartment adjoining mine. There was nothing about her appearance or her manners to attract attention. Meg had, in good German style, grown Imposing though still attractive In the German fashion. "One evening, on returning to my rooms, I saw Meg's lady companion, a dragon looking person, camped on a chair on the landing near Meg's door, genand presently three middle-agetlemen left Meg's rooms. Meg knew that the war was coming, and no doubt serious business was on hand that night.

"Parisians have become very suspicious of late, but the surprise was general nevertheless when they discovered that their exotic favorite, Mata Hurl, the Hindoo dancer, was a German spy. This lady with the dusky skin and flexible wrists and languorous graces of Eastern dancing women turned out to be a formidable personage. At the age of seventeen she married a German who had obtained Dutch nationality in order to mask his spying work. The marriage was rather In the nature of a formal business transaction, but this did not prevent e German officer from bruthe his young wife. tally "Nevertheless she entered Into the spy system with zest, became duly registered and paid, amused and delighted Paris for some years with her audacious performances, became acquainted with various highly placed officials and politicians and found means, It Is said, to make known to the Germans some of the most Important French plans In the first months of the war. "Certainly It Is absurd to find a spy In every German kitchen maid or hall porter or barber's apprentice, but eyes have been opened to the extent of the organization, its studied and eluborate character and the cleverness of the German spy system. "Here In Paris Is a type very different from. Meg, but one who employs the Megs as his agents the , 'Old Adolph,' as he count of W was familiarly called, half In affection and half In contempt. Adolph was, not so many years ago, a dashing officer of the Guards, a great rider, a beau, a lady killer. Certain histories in this latter direction cut off his career as a Guardsman and he came to Paris. Old Adolph had then nothing of the beau cavalier of old ; he seemed good uutured, but stupid; he did not look as If he could mount a horse, for he moved all In a block, like a piece of wood.

But It Is not remote from this question to remark that at one point the disastrous flight of the Germans from the Marne was brought to an end by the fact that they arrived at positions which had been carefully noted and prepared by Germans before the war.

American stock breeders are being asked to conserve their flocks and herds in order to meet Europe's tremendous demands for meats during the war and probably for many years afterward. The United States food administration reports that American stock raisers have shown a disposition to with the government In Increasing the nation's supply of live y IKE SUES (1 fire policies, you realize that fire is a constant menace and feel secure in your protection from that misfortune. you ASfactionlook with at your satis- , ll 1 $'i-75- . $9-7- t, stock. Oermnny today Is probably better supplied with live stock than any other European nation. When the German armies made their big advance Into France and then retreated virtually all the cattle In the Invaded territory 1,800,000 approximately head were driven behind the German lines. But In England where 2,400,000 acres of pasture lands have been turned Into grain fields the cattle herds are decreasing rapidly. 'One of the reasons apparently Is the declining maximum price scale adopted by the English as follows: For September, $17.70 per 100 pounds ; October, $17.28 ; November and December, $16.08; Jan-lar$14.40. The effect of these prices wus to drive beef animals on the market as soon as possible. In France the number of cattle as well as the quality hiTve shown an enormous decline during the war. Where France had 14,807,000 head of cattle In 1013, she now has only 12,-t. 1,000, a decrease of 16.0 And France Is today producing only one gallon of nllk compared to two und one-hagallons before the war. Denmark and Holland have been forced to sacrifice dairy herds for beef because of the lack of necessary feed. Close study of the European meat situation has convinced the Food Administration that the future problem The Germans have placed their of America lies largely in the produchopes of victory in submarine warfare tion of meat producing animals and but owing to the measures taken by dairy products rather than In the prothe allied governments the hope has duction of cereals for export when not materialized.
