Thia August 4, 1914. 19-4t II. M. GOLDEN, Clerk. W. M. Miles, Sol. for Compl't WAR FIRST m LAST In his novel, "The Downfall," Emile Zola gives a vivid picture of the Franco Frussian war, from the early days of French confidence to the last crushing defeat and afterward. Extracts are given here: "What! Whip France? We, whipped by those Prussian pigs we!" "Listen to what I tell you, sir. If the Prussians dare td show their faces here we will kick them home again. You hear me? We will kick them from here to Berlin."-' "Parbleu! It is so, because it is so, and that's all there is about it!" For the first few days after they took the field Maurice was convinced that their success was absolutely certain. The Prussian armies would be taken by surprise; the arrogant nation would be overrun in every direction and crushed utterly within a few brief weeks. It would be a military panic, a holiday ex cursion from Strasbourg to Berlin. IN THE BATTLE HORROR. The colonel of each regiment had previously ridden out and taken his j proper position, 25 yards to the front; the captains were all at their posts at the head of their squadrons. Then there was another period of anxious waiting, amid a silence heavy as that of death. Not a sound, not a breath, there, be neath the blazing sun; nothing, save the beating of those brave hearts. One order more, the supreme, the decisive one, and that mass, now so inert and motionless, would become a restless tor nado, sweeping all before it. At that juncture, however, an officer appeared coming over the crest of the hill in front, wounded, and preserving his seat in the saddle only by the as sistance of a man on either side. No one recognized him at first, but pres ently a deep ominous murmur began to run from squadron to squadron, which quickly swelled into a fmyous uproar. It was Gen. Margueritte, who had re ceived a wound from which be died a few days later; a musket ball had passed through both cheeks, carrying away a portion of the tongue and palate lets; men and horses went down m than any other portion of the frame, heaps and piled corpses made an insur-1 gave evidence of hard treatment; mountable barrier for those who fol-1 broken jaw, the mouth a pulp of teeth lowed.

All about horses were rearing, pawing the air and falling backward; men were dismount ed as if torn from their saddle by the blast of a tornado, while others, shot through some vital part, retained their seat and rode onward in the ranks with vacant, sightless eyes. And looking back over the additional two hundred yards that this effort had won for them, they could see the field of yellow stub ble strewn thick with dead and dying. Some there were who had fallen bead long from their saddles and buried their faces in the soft earth. Others bad alight ed on their backs and were staring up into the sun with terror-ftricken eyes that seemed bursting from their sock ets. The survivors in the wings wheeled their horses and fell back to concentrate their strength for a fresh onset. Finally it was the fourth squadron, which, on the fourth attempt, reached the Prussian lines. Blood flowed in tor rents. The clamor around became so great that one could not hear his own voice, although his throat seemed split ting from the yells that issued from it. But behind the first Prussian line there was another, and then another, and then another still.' Their gallant efforts went for nothing; those dense masses of men were like a tangled jungle that closed around the horses and riders who en tered it and buried them in the rank growths. They might hew down those who were within reach of their sabres; V, HERE THE BATTLE WAS FOUGHT. They at last came out on the plateau of Illy; the level plain unrolled itself in its full extent before their vision. It was the real, the true battlefield that they beheld now, the bare field stretch ing away to the horizon under the wan, cneeriess sky, wtience suowers were streaming down continually. The road led along the brink of a little ravine, and there they beheld a spectacle that aroused their horror to List of Text-Books for the Elementary Schools. FOR BASAL USE.

The exchange provision has only applied heretofore where a new book has been adopted. The new arrangement will enable chil dren to turn in thair dirty, dog-eared and unsanitary books for new ones, al though the old book was readopted. This privilege will undoubtedly be ex ercised by many children. The ex- i change price applies to High School books now in use also. The new contracts also provide what is known as promotional and demotion al exchange. This simply means that the child is not only allowed to ex change an old book for a new one of the same grade, but that he may exchange his old book for a lower or higher book on the same subject. For example, he may exchange any reader in the entire series for any other reader in the ff?ries. This applies to grammars and all other books. The matter of exchanging books is a very important one, when it is remem bered that the authorities agree that the averago life of a text-book is only two years. The ordinary text-book would last for generations if kept in a library and only occasionally bandied, but a text-book receives the roughest usaee day after day. Another new feature in the exchange of toxf-books is that the exchange period has been extended so that it will terminate November 1, 1915, instead of September 1, 1915, This additional time will be valuable to all the children and especially those who enter school late next year. Books That May Be Exchanged. Any book that can be used in the school by the student may be used in exchange, even if the backs are off and some of the leaves missing, provided that all books offered for exchange shall have been adopted by the State Text-Book Commission in 1909 and shall have been in actual use in some school of this State. The book will be received by the merchant at exchange price, regardless of how badly it may be mutilated, provided such book could have been used in the school as a text. Please explain fully the method of making the exchange to your teachers and patrons, so that the exchange of books may be made with as little trouble to the patrons as possible and without in any way disturbing the school organization. We ask the" cordial support of all fricnd3 cf education iu putting in effect the new adoption. Respectfully, S. II. THOMPSON, State Superintendent. LOCAL DEALERS. H. M.
