Yod shudder. when you read details of the death of Fonlon, seventy years old, whom the stupid King placed in power when he dismissed Necker, who might have saved Prance frop the revolution. Lucky that he did not. It was a-revolution needed. Twice they hauled the old man. shrieking andscreaming for mercy to the lamp post Twice the rope broke and he fell to the ground. The third time he was dead. The crowd carried his head on a pike, jaws distended, his mouth filled with grass. He was a gigantically rich army contractor, practiced extortion, gambled .in ,the necessities. of life. And when he was told, "Sir, the people are hungry," his reply had been 'Let them eat grass.' ' That was a. mistake. The people who .may safely be told to eat grass today, may be difficult to handle tomorrow. The man who practices extortion, monopoly, profiteering, should always go softly. He is never quite safe. ' Berthier, another minister and son-in-law of Foulon, suffered the same fate. His head was carried through the streets on a Dike beside that of Fonlon.

All examtaattenM b-frrjz-Ittterrd optonetrUl. and ryrmlaht BpecUlUt. With H. M. JACOBSON &S0R W. Eemember, as yon read of horrors perpetrated by the enraged mob, that they were only imitating their betters. Boyalty had taught them. Those who starved and tortured the people had no cause for surprise when they, on a mild scale, applied to their tormentors punishments that had been inflicted upon themselves. What did they do to Damiens, the half-witted religious fanatic who slightly wounded the royal body of Louis the Fifteenth with a penknife? He was sentenced to be torn to pieces by horses; but first he was tortured, for hours with red-hot pincers, and melted wax, lead and boilmg oil were poured into the wounds. BavaiHac, another half-witted fanatic, who killed Henry the Fourth, had been tortured even more. horribly. Those who invented such things could not hope to es cape their share when the time came. They were treated less savagely, however, than the supreme power had treated those whom it natea. The miserable peasants, the millions, had endured everything. They had stayed awake at night, after working hard all day. With their-threshing flails in their hands, they beat the water on the ponds to keep the croaking frogs from disturbing the nobleman. And the young peasant, by law, must let the nobleman take his wife to the castle the first night after the marriage that was the right of the seigneur. They had lived in one-room huts made of clay, no doors no windows; sleeping on rushes on the hard ground. They had pitifully and vainly appealed to their King. "We do not blame you; we love you. We are crushed with taiation. Could you see our wretched homes and food, you would feel for us. "Those who possess the most pay the least. Why do the rich pay the least and the poor the most?" The answer was, "Eat grass;" and the beautiful Queen, when told that the poor had no bread, wondered why they did not eat cake. The England of Arthur Young's day was none too happy a day for workers. Yet Young could not even try to make Englishmen understand the miserable "animals," as he called them, that were the French people. Such hor rible misery he had never seen. The women who waited on frim at an inn he described as "walking dung-hills;" their condition of filthy misery was beyond words. There came the day. People, rose, the Bastille fell, kings were wiped out. That day is celebrated in Paris on this happy Sunday. Happy it is in spite of the invader on French soil. Happy in spite of the noble dead that lie in No Man's Land. Happy (because the French have in their history, their lofty na 1 tional intellect and courage, the assurance that no autocrat from across the Rhine will ever undo the work that was done on the 14th of July, 1789. NINETEEN ALLEGED F' VIOLATORS 0 DRY LAWAREARRESTED Five alleged "bootleggers and four teen "drunks are spending today in cells at the police stations. They were rounded up last night by the pollce- imen in plain clothes especially as signed to break up the Illicit vending of whiskey in "dry Washington. Pistols were found on four of the negroes arrested, while additional charx-es were olaced against two others because they failed to have In their possession their registration and classification cards In violation of he selective service law. Those arrested for selling whiskey tn all but one Instance were trapped with marked money, "pigeons' of the police buying whiskey from the ac cused with marked dollar bills. Two, doxen half pints of whiskey were con fiscated by the police at the homes of the. alleged walking' speak-easies Seven colored occupants of a motor truck were arrested at Fifteenth and H streets northeast by Sergeant Walsh and Policemen Strobel. 'Lomax. and Rout and charged with transport ing whiskey Into. Washington. In the machine the policemen found suit cases containing thirty half pint bot tles of liquor. The negroes claimed tbey were brlnglnr the whiskey Into Washlngton'for their, personal, use and not for bootlegging purposes. Never theless, they were held for a hearing In Police Court tomorrow. KAISER TELLS DREAMS OF FUTUR E to mm AMSTERDAM, July 14. Karl Ross- ner.. the Kaiser's famous war cor respondent of the Lpkal Anzelger, describing the Emperor's dreams of the future of Germany, says: "One evening after a busy day In surveying operations the Emperor spoke with glowing enthusiasm-" of the time when the forces now let loose on destruction would again be placed in the. service of peaceful pur suits. The Emperor forecast that all of Germany's needs in nitrates would be covered by extracting nitrate from the air. "The Emperor then described 'the marvelous possibilities' of the new gas motors and how purified waste waters from metal works would serve to fertilize the fields so that arid regions would be self-supporting as regards food. "With daring flights of fancy the Emperor predicted the harnessing of the rays of the sun and the recovery of tne oceans innermost treasures.

"DrjL leaders said the decision to take t vote meant the passage of a wartlne prohibition measure. They said it the end It would go throng the Senate nearly two to one.

They atded that they did not pur pose to Imgthen out the time lrt which, satar are permitted to a year. They said they .might compromise, on eight or line t&raths. The Norrls amendment as K stands 'would shut off sales ot all alcoholic beverages December 81, 1913. Congress ordinarily does sot like to vote on trohlbltion just before a campaign. Hjwever, It looks as IT it would be compelled to do so this year. One tilling vhlch might defeat the Norris amendr-ent is fear about the financial effect, ot prohibition, and the revenue effects.
