"The Gentleman In White" and the
Idea- of the Red Cross.
During the Italian war of 1850 young
Jean Dunant was traveling In that
country. After the battle of Solferlno
he visited the field, and, seeing the
terrible sufferings of the wounded sol
dlers who lay around unattended, he.
with the assistance of several peasant
women, forned an ambulance service,
with Its headquarters in a little Church
at Castigllone. He helped with bis
own bands to bind up the wounds of
Frenchmen, Italians and Austrian
"They are all brothers," he said. "A
wounded enemy is an enemy no long
er." And be and bis corps of helpers
brought wnter and medicine and
smoothed the pallets of straw and
cheered the unfortunates and closed
the eyes of the dead and performed
the last kind offices for the dying.
Dunant was regarded by theTiundreds
of wounded as a miracle of goodness
little less than an angel. "The gentle
man in white" was the way In which
the officers spoke of him as be moved
around among the 6ick, his light cloth

His experiences at Solferlno, where
he saw that the willing bands of a
few untrained helpers actually saved
many lives and comforted hundreds of
others, inspired him with the grand
Idea of an organization the Red Cross.

"And how large do you wish this

IN A ROMAN CAB.
A Party of Disgusted Amerioans and
an Over-grateful Driver.
In Mr. Uowells' "Roman Holidays
and Others" is this delightful story
of an adventure) In ft Roman cab; i

cab we had been able to gst was the
last left of the very worst cabs in
Rome, and we had bidden the driver

his word, with such disciplined fidelity
as that of the Roman sentinels who
Used to die at their posts, and we
mounted to ours with the muted
prayer that we at least might reach
home alive. t
This did not seem probable when the
driver whipped up bis horse. It ap
peared to have aged and sickened
while we were In the church, although
we bad thought it looked as bad as

not consent to arrive in that form ; we
