Parkoruon, International Mewa (Service HtafT Correapondent.) Versailles, France, June 28, The German empire haa ended where It waa founded. The mlsrht lest military power the world haa ever known haa been shattered and humbled almost", the point of Impotenry. Within the magnificent palace which in itself waa erected a symbol of the' divine rlRht of kings, and which In the preaent century wag rededicated to that conception by the war lords of Prussia, the democracies of the earth have foregathered and pro nounced the verdict. During 250-odd years which have Intervened since the erec tion of the famous palace of Ver- sallies, civilization hn traversed a Ions; and uncertain route, but the scene itself, which hns figured so consplcuouely in history and cut such a deep Impression Into the heart of France, It little changed In outward appearance. The fresh touch of springtime has brought out the wild violets, daisies and a profusion of other flowers, while treetops are adorned with misletoe and the grounds round about strewn with Ivy. Kxcept for the occasional hum of an airplane there Is no sign above the roof to Indicate the world has moved from tHe sixteenth to the twentieth cen tury. The birds slngr much aa they must have sung In the days of old Louis XIV. himself, and one can almost feel the depres sion In the atmosphere which swept throughout France because of the luxury and extravagance of kings and queens who in days long past, cared naught for the poverty and misery caused to their subje'ets by royal lives of revelry and shame. It was Into this relic-place of the old world that the represen. tatlves of the new world met the German delegates. A long horse shoe table placed In the hall of mirrors Galerle des ,aiaces around which sat the distin guished coterie of the great na tions, was the Immediate setting; upon which all mankind visual ized Ha future hopes. The actual signing; of the treaty took place near the center of the great chamber, while, oddly enou&h, at the south end. where, Jan. 18, 1871, stood the dlaa flanked by Prussian guards from which the creation of the German empire was proclaimed to the world, was reserved for the press. Thus from the exact spot where the light of '71 had burned so dimly for France, the stroke of the pen replaced the flash of the sword and heralded broadcast almost within the twinkle of an eye the dawn of tha new day. The delegates entered the Hall of Mirrors by the marble staircase which took them through the queen's apartments, wherein there Is a striking picture which probably was not without its ef fect on the Germans a portrait of the late Paul Droulede, apostle of "La Revanche," Just as one might have imagined hint at the annual pilgrimages to the Strass bourgr statue on the Place do la Concerde. The apartments of King Louis XIV., Including the bedroom where he died, the ante-chamber and the Salle de l'Oell de Boeuf, were used as special rooms by the allied and associated delegations, while the Hotel des Reservoirs, CftigaPW aUW 1 - "J Smart Hotel fa Smart People" A kottl with all tha metropolitan lust, nry ao attracts to tha out at towa rwitor to New York, and aH the homey etmoiehera to aWrahle to erery traveller.

Marriage between cousins Is forbidden by law in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas. Illinois. Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Ore gon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming. Experts on eugenics state that Intermarriage of blood relatives is likely to Intensify In the children any family traits that are common in both parents. Where there are family weaknesses Intermarriage Is, therefore, undesirable. If theTe are no dangerous common weaknesses the offspring are likely to be normal, and if there v common traits of strength, these may be intensified In the offspring. Scientists generally are not as strongly opposed to mar riage of cousins as is public opinion. Q. What nationality Is most In clined to Insanity? D. S. A. A. The 1910 census showed that there were 15,517 Germans In the in sane asylums of this country, and that this was the largest number of any nationality. Q. Is the Fourth of July a national or state holiday? f. j. A. The Fourth of July has never been made a national holiday by act of congress. It has been made a le gal holiday by every state in the Union, and its observance, therefore, Is on state authority. John Adams probably originated the idea of its being a holiday when, on July 4, 1776, In a speech 'he prophesied that t would come) to be celebrated by proper displays, shows, sports and fireworks. . It was Immediately after this speech that John Hancock or dered the ringing of old Liberty Bell, thus Inaugurating the first celebra tion. Q. Can cross eyes be made nor mal? E. F. A. It Is visually possible by a com paratively simple operation of cutting the muscles whicn hold tne eye crooked, thus allowing it to come back to normal. v Q. Who discovered radium? N. J. A. Radium was discovered in 1898 by Marie Curie,, of Paris, and Mon sieur Curie, her husband. The credit for the discovery is assigned chiefly to Madame Curie.

What Is the explanation of the excessive growth of giants? W. R. A. Giants suffer from a disease of a gland at the base of the skull. An XVray picture of'the brain will show ilFthls gland Is affected. Children of abnormal growth or corpulence should be examined In this respect, and if affected, should be treated. Q. How should Mary Smith, mar. ried to John Smith, be addressed? C. 8. A. -Is Is considered preferable to call her Mrs. John Smith. Should she become a widow, however, she would be addressed ss Mrs. Mary Smith. Q. How may broken crockery be mended? S. W. A. One of the strongest cements, according to the Scientific American Cyclopedia of Formulaes, and one easily applied, Is lime and the white of an egg. To use it, take a sufficient quantity of the egg to mend' one ar ticle at a time, shave off a quantity of lime, and mix .thoroughly. Apply quickly to the edges, and place firmly together. Mix but a small quantity at a time, as it hardens quickly. i ' Q. How did the fourth of March come to be chosen as the day for the Inauguration of presidents? O. H. C. A. Benjamin Franklin selected this date because it fell hiss fre quently on Sunday, than any other date In the year during the two cen turies that were to follow. Q. Where the marriage Is kept secret and the license is not pub lished, Is Jt still legal? T. B. D. A. Tes. Secrecy of a marriage has nothing to do with its legality. Q. What is a shooting star? S. N. A. A. The best accepted theory of the shooting star is that it is a piece of mhtter thrown oft by some planet suiffl which travels through space at great speed. When It strikes the at mosphere that surrounds the earth the friction heats It until It becomes luminous or even until it Is entirely consumed.

"v mm f and .-' UP built by Jjouis XV. for Madame de Pompadour, housed the chief representatives of the Germans. In the Salle du Conseil, or counsel chamber, where virtually all the great decisions were taken governing the course of France under Louis XTV.. XV., and XVII., President Wilson, Pre miers Lloyd George, Clemenceau and Orlando, and the Japanese representative, with the spokes men of the Germans, met pri vately for a brief conference Just before entering the Hall of Mir rors, v It was in this room, President Wilson was told, that the de cision was taken to send La fayette to the aid of the Amer ican revolution the decision which happily resulted in laying a firm foundation for the great human force wtildh, at the crucial moment of the. world war, threw in its lot with the French and the other self-governing; people of Europe to "make the world safe for democracy." An immense amount of work had to be done to adapt the an cient palace to the requirements of a twentieth century peace conference. For the first time in history the sound of the telephone bell and the typewriter has been heard in the Intimate apartments of the kings and queens of France Indeed, in the very room where Marie Antoinette, in 1779. heard the Paris mob from without Bhrieking for her blood, and in the room also of the beautiful and artful Madame de Malntenon, who, earlier, was practically mis tress of France. These were symbols of me chanical changes brought about by time and the untrammelled op portunity of a people in another land to develop their natural in stincts and inclinations freely the same people to whom Lafay ette was-sent, and by whose un selfish aid In the cause of human liberty the king who acquiesced In his going selfishly believed he might overturn the balance abroad and make himself abso lute master ,of Europe. But the seed Lafayette sowed was not the seed of empire, and today the newspaper correspond ents of the various countries, and not the intriguers of royalty, are working against time In the great hall of the battles Galerie des BataillPS next in importance to the Hall of Mirrors itself, in their effort to acquaint the people of . the world with the facts attend ing the deliberations of their chosen representatives. One of the great paintings these men are looking upon nbove and over the frame of their typewriters Is that commemorat ing the British surrender of Yorktown. Others are pictures of fetes of arms at Lille, Denaln and Dunkirk, which recall names immortalized in the war Just closed. Thus the work of the livlnor is mingled with the work of tha dead past, and thus, also Is it Impressed firmly upon the German delegates themselves that men's minds had changed long before the inception of the world war; that they no longer dwelt in centuries forgotten, and that, possibly with the exception of the ex-kaiser and those who immediately surrounded him. no thought of erecting a statue, such as the subjects of old Louis once did, representing him enthroned with conquered nations in chains nt his feot, would at this day be seriously considered outside the roynl realm of the movies. It is, indeed, a new world that hns arisen from the very thresh hold of the old from innermost chambers once consecrated to the whispers of Imperial Intrigue, rind the peaccfulness and quiet ude of it is probahly what de presses one now at Versailles. Hut from th placards in front the theatre adjoining the Ho tel de Reservoirs there comes a note of hope. It Is a simple ad vertisement, printed In French and referring to an American cinema actor, whose abilities as enterlnlner will soon be seen on the Versailles screen in "Une A venture an Far West!"

T . 1 costs of necessities "was shown not long . aT ... ago i when twenty-six Democratic members ot tne Massachusetts legislature cabled to President Wilson that "The citizens of the United States want you home to help reduce the high cost of living which we consider far more important than the League of Nations. A man's suit of clothes that cost $15.00 in 1914 costs $26.00 to-day; shoes that were $9.00 in 1914 cost. $15.50 now; a woman's suit that cost $15.00 in 1914 is $24.00 to-day; every item in both men's and women's wearing apparel has nearly doubled in price, while food, shelter, fuel, heat, and. light have soared to, equally high levels. This condition prompts the Detroit News to declare that "what the eating, sleeping, and dressing world wants to know is whether the cost of necessities is justified?" The consumer finds it hard to understand, according to the Buffalo Evening News, "why six months after the end of fighting, prices instead of taking a fall, are forever rising." THE LITERARY DIGEST presents this week in its leading article i comprehensive survey of the; elements affecting present living costs; comparative tables showing the difference in prices of many articles ; in 1914 arid to-day, the opinions of bankers, merchants, and manufacturers 'as to the future outlook, -and ' the observations of editorial writers throughout the country on the situation.
