A GENERAL'S BAGGAGE It Is No Indication of the Fighting Quality of the Man It may be laid down as a military axiom that a general's ability is not measured by the amount of baggage he takes to war. It is said that when General Sir John French embarked to take com mand of the British forces fighting with the French against the Germans in northern France all the baggage ho took was contained in a siugle suit ease. When •' Stonewall'' Jackson started out on a campaign he took along no | porsonal baggage except a withered ; carpetbag of ancient pattern, and even j this modest receptable was but half I filled. \ Both these generals bear dis- I tinguished reputations as successful leaders. Contrariwise, when Napoleon 111, ! Emperor of France, left I'aris in IS7O to take command of the armies which, he said, were going straigl\t to Berlin ho took along forty-eight trunks, be sides a most voluminous kitchen ami bedroom equipage. The Germans got every scrap of it all at Sedan. Hit son, the iPrince Imperial, escaped from Sedan and the beleaguering German: with his personal effects, which filled f special train of five cars.—Washingtoi Star.
