It has been explained that the term "blue

classes by colors. Members of the various
academics were distinguished by the color

Berlin. Aug. 19 The city of Treves is
already packed with visitors from all
parts of Germany to be present at the
ceremony on Thursday when the hoiy
coat of the Savior will be exposed to pub
lic view. Thousands of letters have been
received in which the writers beg for ad
mission to the church and permission to
touch the holy coat for religious and heal
ing purposes. The rector of the church of
Argenteuil iu France, which possesses the
rival coat, has arrived here with two
Lacks the Seamless Peculiarity.
He declares that the holy coat of Treves
is not seamless as has been represented,
and as the description in the Xew Testa
ment requires that the garment should be.
He says, moreover, that it is a long cloak,
falling from the shoulders to tbe feet,
which Jesus, being a mere craftsman,
could never have worn. The French rec
tor, who got the start of the Germans by
exhibiting at Argenteuil on Sunday the
coat vouched for by Gregory of Tours, is
incensed at the prominence given the
coat of Treves.
