First, the beautiful Schoenbrunn palace of the imperial Hapsburg family is to be a home for poor children. Second, Chinese workers in the State of Wisconsin, by draining, have transformed worthless marsh lands into wonderfully productive gardens. Tens of millions of such wasted marsh lands are in this country.

Organization, intelligence, ma chinery, and lime will do the work. And six acres of such land will support a family well.

"My oolleagues and myself than you for having been so goftd as to acscpt our invitation and give some hours of a time which we know to be devoted to high meditations and important ne gotiations upon which the fate of the people depend. "From your first step on the land of France, since your entry into Paris, the French people spontaneously gave their hearts to you and they perceived at once in your frank smile, in your so loyal and open physigonomy that you too were spontaneously giving yourself to them. You are today in an old palace of France, and it is among those grand reminders of past times that with a thought rejuvenated by republican ardor and yet with pa triotism the French Senate continues to shape a history which has already counted for fifteen centuries. Senate la -With Him." "We -welcome here, Mr. President, you and your ideas. Nowhere could your splendid ambition to substitute for the periodically broken equili brium of material forces the definite award of moral forces elicit more en thusiasm than in France, and no where in France than in the senate, since the statutes of international peace have been first of all and for a long time prepared by some of its most eminent members. "But be assured, also, Mr. Presi dent, that there is nowhere in the world a country committed to a more formidable security than is France, being directly subjected to the secu lar thrust of a proud race which seems to be driven by some ancient longing for conquest. Our national problem consists therefore in com bining our European past, our actual material security, with the conditions of the new order for which you nave given so noble a formula, because this new order w ill ever have to lean on some force of which France, when all is told and done, will stand as the most advanced and the -most exposed sentinel. "It is with such a hope that we shall most willingly participate in the sub lime crusade which you come to un dertake on the devastated soil of old Europf, where hatred and discord still howl a-fter the guns have become silent, and where anarchy causes a vast part of mankind to stagjrer. j "The task is a gigantic one, but it Is worthy of your cauntry. accus | tomed. as it is, to great undertakings, and of ours with our ancient artisan ship of western civilization, and it is worthy of you. Mr. President, with your great heart and your high intel ligence, which wc salute with a joy ful hope and fervent acclamation."
