Until tho present war's outbreak, overyono bus supposed tho custom of nntlons changed slnco Nnpoleon's time, so lhat It would no longer bo possible for a conqueror to fill bis mu seums with plunder. That supposi tion, Hko so many others, seems to havo been given the llo by the kaiser,' whoso agents arc said to have, emp tied the Antwerp nnd Brussels mu seums for the benefit of Berlin. Even tho omnoror's ernndfntber, In tho wnr of 1870, took practically no toll of Paris art treasures. Malice has ascribed this moderation to the lack, In that Spartan genera tion, of appreciation for nrt, wnicn lou those enrller Invaders to confine their activities, for the most part, to or molu clocks and silver services. Tho modern Prussian, however, from tho, prown nrlnco down, has becomo a dilettante, nn nrt connoisseur. Ilcnco tho very thought of clennup made of art objects.
