Surrender of Paris. Forty-seven years ago, January 28, 1871, the mast terrible siege ever en dured by a groat capital came to an end with the capitulation of Paris. For 1.11 days the German nrmy had sur rounded the city, cutting the people IT from all communication with the outside world, excent by balloon ami pigeon post. The great guns nf the .missions wunciorcci in vain, within the city the people, supposedly gay. frivolous and excitable, comported themselves like heroes, as the French nation has dono Tn the present strug gle. Finally famlno camo to the aid or the rrussians, and l'arls was iorc ed to surrender. The siego of Paris began Sept. 10, 1870, when the city was completely in fested with German troops. On that day the boulevards were as gay as ever, and Faris was apparently un moved by the fate which hung over her. Within a few days, however, Par isians began to feci the pinch of hun ger. All food supplies were taken over by tho military authorities, nnd oon tho city wns reduced to a horse flesh diet. But fate had yet severer trials In store for tho Parisians. When alt the horses had been killed and con sumed, ravenous Paris slaughtered its cats and doirs. Household neU were luthlessly killed so that Paris mlgfit a little longer escape tho ignominy of surrendering lo the uermans. wnaily cats and dogs became rare delicacies, nnd Paris took to tho trado of rat catching, nnd the, rodents becamo tho taplo diet. With the coming of New Year's day, 1871, Paris wns practically bare of food. Still the weary nnd starved cit izens refused to surrender. Tho Iron ring of the German grew tighter, nnd in Paris human beings died like Mm, the victims of starvation and the ills that followed In its wake. On the 24 Hi of January, Favrc open ed negotiations witli lllsmnrck, and four days later the Prusilan and French statesmen signed nn armistice Involving the capitulation of the city. It was not until tho first of March, however, that the Germans tnado their entry Into the city of Paris. Tho full of Purls practically market the ending of the l-'rnnro-l'nisslaii tvar, although even then Gnmltttn wns unwilling to give up, and sought to prolong resistance of the untrained volunteer against the mnsrc of the Jcrmnns who hnd poured Into tho nouth nml west of Frnnce. Defeat in 1871 cot Franco the payment of nn Indemnity of 1,000,000,000 francs nnd tho los of Alsacc-Iirralnc, the return f which France Is fighting for now nnd which must be accomplished, ac cording to the peace terms laid down liy President Wilson, lieforc pence can lio restored. Incidentally it may be noted Hint 1,000,000,000 francs Isn't much more than pin money In the present day war figures. r. A Dig Success.
