While the sacking of cities In Europe has shocked the sensibilities of Amcrt 'he past year, it has not been forgotten by Washlngtonlans that the capital of the United States was itself the scene of equally de structive vandalism Just 101 years ago. It was not a proud day for eith er England or America when the five thousand British raiders destroyed the city of Washirgton. For President Madison with his wife and Cabinet was forced to flee into thb country and go into hiding. Valuable rec ords were hurriedly loaded into wa gons and hidden in mills and cellars in Virginia and Maryland. The war of 1812 had been waged for two years, when a fleet of sixty British warships entered Chesapeake bay. In command were Admiral Cockburn and General Ross. The de fense of Washington by the American troops was made at Blandensburg, but through interference with the plans of General Winder and his staff, the efficiency of the samall force was reduced to woeful disorder. The British troopers entered Wash ington on the afternoon of August 24. 1814, and at once began the pil lage. Admiral Cockburn enjoyed the destruction, galloping about on a white horse. The unflnish Capitol, the arsenal, the White House, the barracks, the treasury building and other public structures were burned. Genoral Ross attributed the firing of these buildings to revenge for snip ing. The patent ofifce was sapared. ? I? "*?-? uancco in i iipw / At the White House the British of ficers disported themselves. They danced about in .Mrs. Madison's ball gowns and in wall tapeshtries and vel vet curtains. Then they smashed the furniture and had an all-round good time, their feelings mounting high from the contents of the wine cellar. The torch was set on the executive mansion at the wind-uyp of the orgy. Before midnight the invaders had done their work, and began to with draw. As they passed the grave of George Washington at Mount Vernon, Admiral Cockburn hatted his com mand and made them stand reverent ly with uncovered heads, while the British standards were dipped in hon or of the patriot's memory. The entire country was aroused ov er the act of the British commanders in sacking the city of Washington. The war was pushed with unusual bitterness and forced to a successful conclusion. It was another instance when America aronsed herself to the evils confronting any conquest on her I shores. Miss Floy Teacey, science teacher I in the Douglas high school, is a northbound passenger on the JefTer* son. Mrs. B. D. Stewart and children, accompanied by the Misses Wagner, left on the Princess Alice this morn ing enroute to St. Louis. Mr. and Mrs. A. H.

The Advantages of Education Two tramps, sitting by the roadside at dusk, were indulging in an imag inary game of poker. In which peb bles played the part of lucre. One of them was a downfallen college grad uate; the other Just an ordinary com mon tramp, named Pat. Said the latter, "I'll just bet you a thousand dollars as an opener." The college graduate replied. "Ill raise you a million." "Make it a billion." said Pat. "Raise you a hundred billion," said Pat. "Seventeen quadrillion." Pat scratched his head for a min ute. Then he said. "Take the bet, you educated son of a gun!"?(Judge.) Uncle Hawhee's Philosophy "Dis life am what we makes It. To de bull dog dis am a flghtin' world.

The vessel began to sink slowly, and S. 0. S. calls of distress were sent out The Mariposa was the first to reach the scenes, although the United States torpedo boat destroyer Stew art. which was at Sitka, lost no time In leaving for the Westward. The Stewart turned back when she learn ed that the Mariposa had picked up the Edith's life boats, to which the crew was ordered by CapL McMullen, when it was certain the Edith could not remain afloat. Reports yary as to the value of the concentrates lost when the Edith foundered. Press messages from Cor dova say the copper was valued at $250,000.

ITALIAN OFFERED $40,000 TO SWING SOCIALISTS FOR PLACE PARIS?The Rome Giornale d'ltalla publishes a statement issued "by di rection of the Socialist party" alleg ing an attempt to bribe Italian Social ists to oppose Italy's entrance into the war.

Greulich, dean of the Swiss Socialists, as having just returned from the United States, charged with a mission by an Ameri can woman which should be o finter est to Italian Socialists on account of the financial difficulties of the party. Nathan, asked to explain, is alleged to have said that an American woman living in Chicago, and a well-known peace advocate, had charged him to offer from $20,000 to $40,000 to aid a peace propoganda by the Italian So cialists.
