The Dry Goods Economist makes the
good point that "to advertise a clearing
out sale of certain articles, and then a day
or so later to repeat the advertisement,
Is to apparently acknowledge that the
goods failed to sell on the strength of the
first announcement." In other words,
it is not alone wiiat an advertisement says
but what it suggests in connection with
previous advertisements that determines its
effectiveness. Teople have learned to read
between the lines, and as much potentialty
may be put there as in the printed lines
that are paid for.

He began his cruelty, the bill charges, a
short while after their marriage. Be
repeatedly struck her and threatened her,
she said, and she feared for her life. Then
he went away and stayed four months
without contributing to her support. They
were at one time the center of a street

assaulted her in public.

909 7tb at
McKinley s Home
One of the unique displays that will at
tract the attention of residents and visitors
is the model of Mr. McKinley' s residence,
which may be seen in the Palais Royal
show window, made entirely of handker
chiefs. The model is of heroic ,slze, and
Is complete In every detail.
Considering its size and scatteTeu'i'orces,
the little army of the United States could
be very quickly mobilized, In case of an
emergency, and, if that were necessary,
its effective force could bestrngthened with
about 50,000 State troops, which could
be produced at any principal railway cen
ter in the Middle States In from forty-eight
to seventy-two hours.
When assembled the National Guard
paitof the aggregation would not be every
thing that should be desired in the matter
of arms, equipment, quartermasters' stores,
and commissariat, although the troops
of some States like New York, Pennsyl
vania, Massachusetts, Ohio and Illinois
would be found fairly well provided to
start upon a campaign. What, with the
number of regular troops that could be
transported to a given point within the
time named, we probably could throw a
force of from 05,000 to 70,000 men of
all arms into Buffalo, Niagara, Chicago or
Detroit within three or three and a half
days after the orders were issued. Less
central points with fewer converging lines
of railway, like Ogdcnsburgh, St. Albans
or Malone, would take a day or so longer
to fully occupy.
Such a mobilization isperhaps, all that
our present or prospective circumstances do
or may demand, but It is a small affair to
consider, in comparison with the vast and
scientific mobilization of a first-clnss
European array, suddenly called into ac
tion by a declaration of war. At the pres
ent time such a movement does not in
volve great trouble-or anxiety to the war
minister or to the general commanding
in chief, only because skill and long ex
perience have been applied to the problem
in advance, and every detail and possible
contingency have been thought out, pre
pared for or provided against. This was
exemplified in the case "of the Prussian
army, when the war between that power
and France broke upon Europe in 1870.
General Von Moltke, chief of the Prussian
general staff, was asleep In his quarters
when, sometime after midnight, an adju
tant, coining in hot haste from the king,
waked him and exclaimed:
"General, war is declared."
Von Moltke opened his eyes and saying:
"Second portfolio to the left," turned over
and went to sleep again.
The second portfolio on the left con
tained every point, detail, and necessary
order for the purpose required, and before
morning the last battalion, troop or bat
tery in the kingdom was In readiness to
move or had moved.

The modern theory and practice of mo
bilization originated with the Germans,
and its most important improvements and
modifications in recent times are largely
due to the professional genius and infinite
care and labor of the great German leader
and tactician, the late field marshal, Count
Von Moltke. In connection with this
subject Col. Francis Vintor Greene's fine
prize essay, on "The Improvements in the
Art or War," discusses the origin of the
armysystem now in vogue gt-nerallamoug
the great powers of the old world.
Strangely enough It came into being
through measures adopted by Napoleon I
intended to compass the partial disarma
ment of Prussia. After the battle of
Jena the conqueror imposed terms by
which Prussia was permitted only to
maintain an army of 42,000 men. This
condition was honestly observed in the
letter, and completely circumvented as to
the fact. Nothing was said In the terms
about the length of army service so the
Prussian general, Scharnhorst, took ad
vantage of the opening and evolved a
system by which a certain propoition of
men could go home on Indefinite furlough
after a short training service, and others
could be conscripted to take their places.
Thus, by enlisting and training men and
retaining them in the service, whether on
active duty or under furlough, Prussia
soon had a large available force and in
1813, when the kingdom had recovered
sufficiently to strike back at Napoleon,
there were 250,000 well-disciplined men to
call upon and 170,000 of these were put
into the field.
Col. Greene directs attention to the fun
damental principle of the European army
system, which is universal liability to
military service during a certain period in
the life of each subject or citizen. In
Germany, beginning at the age of twenty,
men are selected annually by lot to fill the
ranks, and every one must serve twelve
years. The time Is divided so that each
man spends two years in the ranks of the
army, live years in the Landwehr, or flr&t,
and five years in the Landsturm, or second
reserve. Except as to details, the same
applies in other countries. In Russia, for
example, the service is twenty years, six
In the ranks, nine in the first and five in
the second reserve.
Members in the reserve claBS are liable to
Instant call into active service. Armies
are territorialized; each regiment has its
home and a depot In the district where its
reserve force lives. Every man knows the
u congregating point at which he must re
port on notice. Mobilization consists mere
ly in calling in the reserves, issuing arms,
uniforms, etc., which are always In readi
ness, and dispatching them under their
regimental officers, stationed at the de
pots for the purpose, to the headquarters
of their regiments. Within a few hours
every arm of the service is thuB enabled
to change from its peace to its full war
footiug, and the rest is merely a question of
While soldiers attached to the Landwehr
are permitted to attend to their ordinary
citizen vocations in time of peace, they
must each year serve several weeks with
the depot command, to keep them from
forgetting what they have learned In the
ranks. This is not usually the case with
the second reserve, which is not liable
la be called', for active duty until after
the resource of the first reserve has been
concerning a strictly technical professional
question, or incident, I forget which. The
general told him that "we line officers do
not bother ourselves about such matters,"
and advised him to talk to his chief
engineers. Now, a German general would
be most unlikely to say anything of that
kind, and for very good reasons.
In the American army a youngster leaves
West Pbint and selects, or is as&igned to
a particular branch of the service which he
follows to the end of the chapter; except
that later he may be appointed a quarter
master, paymaster, or go on detached serv
ice as an aide-de-camp to some general
officer. But the infantry officer is un
likely to serve in the artillery arm, or a
dashing cavalristin the Engineers, and so
on. In Germany It is different An officer
goes from the military school to an In
fantry regiment, after a time I have not
the details before me he is transferred to
the artillery. Then he goes back to the in
fantry, and, in another given time, is
made to serve with the cavalry.
In this way each officer who is able to
acquit himself satisfactorily, makes the
round of the servicein all its departments,
line and staff, practical and scientific. If,
at any point in the progress, he develops
lack of capacity, according to a high-prescribed
standard, he goes back to his
original arm and stays there, never likely
to rise above battalion or at most, regi
mental command. But If he evinces de
cided talent and ability to meet the re
quirements of all branches, then It happens
to him that, by the time he reaches the
age of forty, he Is considered tit for a
general command, and ordinarily gets it
It isobvlous that the scheme was construct

production of generals, and no doubt it
Is an excellent one.
