Ki'hard 1'. wvkoff. explaining in Leslie's "Why the War Must I. ml v.nii," argues that the sinews of war to not soldiers hut money, and that In ft lore the cash and credit resources .f the contestants must determine their ihilitv to stand the strain ot the war. lie sas a very conservative estimate if the per man cost of the present war v.. uld he $.'..'.a per day. and that In ludini; Ihe full strength of the six na ioiis now at war. and with the possi- ility of Italy and Tut key heing drawn into the struggle, thcte will prohahly in round numhers, twenty million men under arms, making me net t om all the nations tift.v million dolars day. Then he nays: Now let us get into the realm of hil ls for a few moments: Kilty mil i dollars a day is one and one-half .illioiis per month; nine hilliotis in six nths; oi-hteen billions a year. This nears tiiat II t lie war continues mr he months the combined debt of th.-se nations will nearly double, for it ow stands at twenty-four billions! In filer to furnish a petspective we will mention the fact that there tire nly eleven billions of gold and bullion in the entire world. Of this Europe has even ami one-half billions, one-third f which is locked away 'where it is ..t available. At least another billion has beet:, or will be, hoarded." A dispatch from llorlin gives llgures and anives at conclusions which do not parallel those of Mr. Wykoff. It af firms : "According to military authorities, the war Is costing about L'o.liiiii.nui) marks ( :,iiimi,iiiiii ) a day, inclusive of the money spent on behalf of those who have been deprived of their bread winners.

VIVID STORIES thfe IVAR London A story received from a point lt France not ulven and darfed Sept. 11. naya: A noldier comes out from behind a pine tree with rltte and fixed bayonet "Ou allea vous?" he sas, Mopping before mo and dropping his bayonet point a little toward me. "Je vais me promencr." I reply stnil ing. and anticipate his next demand by pulling out my case and displaying my special permit, also various other pa pers and an ollicially stamped photo irrnoh width nroVOM HI V idf til lilt a t loll with the name upon the special permit -Monster, permit me," shs the sol dier suddenly in very lair r.ngnsu. Monsieur Is ze man that writes. I hake ou by ao hand with ver' great plcas.iire. It is to me an honor. "We "shake" with fiioinioiis em essmeiit and I compliment him upon his Knglish. He smiles, gratified, and disclaims with great modesty, lie becKoiis ine hack among the trees. "One comes!" he says. "Sail! Ze woods here have been many times sol flames. We have suspects these be lone with intention." Ho ceasetl his whisper abruptly and both went forward together. A iiindred yat.ls down the narrow pain among the pines a man in a woinmaun blue blouse is standing, looking qulet- in every direction. Suddenly he takes a couple of steps in among lite trees, stoops aim nan a tone. Far down tho hillside at the end of the narrow vista among the trees, a ond man was suddenly seen. So utter Is the silence that I can near him plainly as he coughs. He begins to haul on something, and 1 realize blcnly the meaning of the whole in- ideiit that 1 am watching. 1 he two men have located the underground prl- ito telephone wire going up to the it. They have been tapping it for my news they might pick up, and now they are removing a couple of hundred meters of wire bodily. Tho soldier is methodical. He takes the distant man tirst. Kneeling there behind him, I watch with a growing thrill and tension of tragedy and sick ness Ills suniuirnett cheek cutiiite tualnst tho stock of his ritle. Then, cry slowly it seems to mo in that luiet, dreadful moment, his stubby ci- garet-stained fonllngcr crooks back gently, gently on the trigger. 'Crack!" comes the sharp, snapping bang of tho weapon, and tho man lown the vista of trees gives ti queer little Jump and then turns right around quickly and looks behind him. Anil thus looking, anil seemingly un aware that he Is the person who lias been shot, his heart stops and he rolls over quite easily and gently on his side a merciful enough death, as these violent deaths go, for some of them are so dreadful. And then, as I stare, the ri 111 goes Crack!" again, and I Jump; for I am still looking at the silent figure down tho vista of trees. Hut the soldier has been attending to his business and has snapped off a second shot at the nearer man, for the man had started to bolt. And because the shot was hastily aimed tho second bath is as cruel as tho tlrst was merciful. 1 cannot go into details, but the soldier has to use a third cartridge before the end comes, and the man lies thorn quiet. his terrible screamine nded.

The French moved out to cap ture tho Herman position ami were ilmost wiped out. The French with drew to the hills and tho Ciormans time down. 'The next day the French, who had icon reinforced, slit lied the town and hove tho Cermans back to tho hills. Then more reinforcements came upon nith sitles. A perfect hail of shells whizzed over us day and night. "As soon as the bombardment be gan we took to the cellars. "They blew the town to pieces over our heads. At intervals there would io a lull In tho tiring ami we would go out to gather the wounded ami help bury tho dead. "For several days We had ten wound d French officers in our cellar. "Ono evening French officers and soldiers came nnd hurried them away. nun after tho Germans swarmed into the town. The French had retreat oil to the hills. "A squad of German soldiers under minor officer entered our house. lo found traces of the French wounded, but we would tell him nothing. Then he accused us of being spies. AVo were actually backed up against a wall and told wo would be shot. "I believe they would have shot us. but a German colonel heard our cries nnd drove off the minor officer. "Tho next day the French drove the Germans out. Then there were two days of comparative calm, -during which my sister and I went out among the wounded on the sloped of tho val ley. The only care the wounded got. we gave them. I took tho dying mes- lges of a score of soldters and have sent to their people the little inomen toes they gave me.

'To the ghastly fields about Puisieux I came," writes a French correspond ent, "through the haunting horrors of men in gray and blue lying on tho roadside some as though they had lain down to rest and would spring to their f 't at tho trumpet's sharp sum mons; others as though, some savage beast had sprung on them unaware and mauled them to death; others as though lightning had struck them and left only tho charred remains. "One man was -kneeling with his rl flo on the shattered stump of a tele graph polo. Ho might have Just sight ed the enemy, but the linger on the trigger was stiff and cold, ami through the brow of the soldier was a tiny hole. "A hundred paces to the rear of the earthern parapets lie n torn and over turned tent, a red blanket, some crim soned stripes of linen nnd pieces of cotton, wool all telling tho tale of wounds nnd agony." Zouaves Show Valor. In part of the fighting we have been aslsted by tho reckless valor of the Zouaves," cables a French oorros pondent. "I have already described In previous dispatches the gallantry of this famous regiment, but In the battle around Soissons yesterday they cover ed themselves with new glory. They charged again nnd again under the most deadly fire nnd were successful repeatedly In reaching the enemy's po sltions. "German soldiers fled before them. but not until the trenches were -filled with their dead, slain by tho long bay onets of the Frenchmen, who tossed them out of their pits as though they were hay-making."
