BRINGS BACK
DAYS OF NAPOLEON
William G. Shepherd, Staff Cor
respondent Of United Press
Writes From Paris.

United Press Dispatch.
I Paris, Sept. 28.— (By Mail to
I New York)—A little man all
I bundled up in coats drove up
this very street one December
day a century ago and rushing
into a building in this very park
tore through the halls, dashed
into a certain room and there
threw his arms around the Em
press of France. He was Napo
leon, back from Moscow, where
the Russians had all but shatter
ed him. Two days later he told
France the story and France
shuddered at the name of Rus
sia
I
But today when I saw this
street, France was thrilling with
hope at the thought that some
where, in the fog of war, hugh
tCos. acks from Moscow itself,
I perhaps, were coming by land or
by sea, with their wild horses,
to save this street and palace
and the great art galleries and
I Paris and France itself from the
Germans.
I The street was almost desert
ed. The great Tuillris lay in
the golden autumn sunshine as
empty and silent as if they had
been farms in Iowa, after the
crop time, instead of the most
famous park in the world.
The Louvre Art Gallery was
locked- I don’t know whether its
art treasures remain there or
not. A soldier at one door told
me he didn’t know either. The
[Wonderful pieces of marble and
j painting which Napoleon him
self when master of Europe seiz
ed as he pleased and took off as
; war booty to his great and pow
erful Paris, have been hidden a
j way perhaps ere now or will be
! when the sound of German guns
j which I heard booming to the
| northwest this afternoon grows
i louder.
l-Iere’s the great building, right
! here; the great Louvre art gal
j lory. Stand and look at it this
September afternoon and then
listen to the cannon, not many
| miles away, and you’ll have a
| thrill you’ll never forget. We
| cross the river. I want to see
Napoleon’s tomb. We pass great
! railroad stations that are clos
■ ed; somewhere the steel lines
, that run out from them have
been cut by the Germans and
the trains are not running. Here
we are at the Invalides, the old
soldiers’ home. I can’t go in. I
can’t even go near the old can
nons, trophies which Napolean
Bonaparte brought from the
lends of Europe. I wonder if all
the tattered flags seized in oth
er days from other armies by
armies of France are still in their
j glass eases in the Invalides or
have they been hidden, ignomin
ouslv also with the trophies of
art ’
Gome around behind this old
tlnvalides building topped by a
i dome. Soldiers stop you. Un
j der that dome rests a great stone
: sarcophagus. T know it well be
j cause I have spent hours like ev
jery other tourist, gazing at it.
IT know it stands there under the
I dome in the center of that stone
circle with magic names of “Aus
Berlitz and "sedan ’ worked in
* marble below it.

chislea only once and that in
! small letters under the sentence,
"1 now desire to rest on tne
banks ot tne Seine, amid the
French people, whom 1 loved so
Well." how well are you rest
ling this Indian summer after
noon, Napoleon, with those Ger
man cannon sounding at the
gates of Paris ?
1 You may talk to tombs all you
1 please and get no answer. They
! have only to do with the past,
anyhow, and the cannon and a
German aeroplane flying over
head remained reminding me of
the present. “Where are the
French airmen?" I asked an of
ficer of the Guard.
“Everybody believes they’re
all dead," he said. “The Times
said the other day that when the
world knows at the proper time
the story of our airmen, it will
thrill and weep." As I said
goodby to the officer, he turned
I away to continue his job of
! guarding the tomb of Napoleon.
| The Eiffel tower, 1,000 feet
jhigh, loomed before us in the
I evening dusk. “The Germans
| will cut that in two with their
I shells,” said the cab driver.
| “That’s the wireless station.
What a fall it will be!"
For the past few nights the
armies of. Europe have been
Isleeninsr and marchiner and kill
jing under a full autumn moon.
(There has been surprisingly lit
I tie rain in Europe and even Lon
jdon has only splendid clear days
! So it was through a beautiful
(evening that I went to my big,
I lonely hotel, where there are
I only two guests besides myself.
I Great fingers of light from
;the Eiffel tower scoured the
j skies for Zeppelins and one of
[them hitting the tall building a
Fross the street, lighted my
room in regular throbs and
' made it hard to sleep.
It was ten in the evening in
i\Paris, the play place of the
hvorld and I couldn’t see a soul
; in the streets or even hear a
i footfall.
| But early in the morning the
| boom of the cannon started a
gain.
