M y s O tV to James Aswell New York, Aug. 22.—Manhattan episodes: \ It was a big East river apartment house and the elevator was crowded in its descent from 28, the penthouse floor. At 18 the car was full up and the operator decided not to stop at any of the other floors. One tell, however, buzzed so insistently that he slowed down at 11 to see what was the matter. You never can tell what may be wrong in a deluxe Manhattan hive and so he “topped the car. A little man in shirt sleeves peered at the sardine packed elevator of men and women in evening dress. “Sony, sir," said the operator. “We’re full”. “I don’t want to go down", said the man. “What I wanted was to bor row a match". He got a light from a platinum briquet and the car continued its descent. * ♦ * Midget A midget was rehearsing in a new musical. Hb performance did not please the director of the show, who administered a sound rebuke. Next day the agent for the midget troupe button-holed the director. “You ought not to have been so harsh with the little guy yesterday. You made him go all to pieces,” said the agent. “What makes you think he’s up set?" 1 ‘‘His roommate told me the poor man paced up and down under his bed all night."

The German crown prince, com manding the pivogtal V army be tween Metz and Thionville, disregards superior authority and attacks when | he has been ordered to stand on the defensive. The left-wing commanders are told they must maneuver to detain as many French troops as possible. The Bavarian crown prince, Rupprecht, insists this can be done only by at tacking. He is unwilling to forfeit an opportunity for glory by retiring when the Prusian prince is advanc ing. The strategic result of Rupprecht’s attack is to throw back the French to a fortified harrier which both re stores and augments their power of resistance. And thereby they are en abled to dispatch troops to reenforce ♦ heir western flank—a redistribution of strength which is to have far-reach ing results in the decisive battle, on the Marne.

Those that could in any way be useful to the invaders during their occupation are carefully preserved, and those judged prejudi cial to Germany’s commercial future systematically destroyed. It is the same with residences. Anything be longing to or wanted by German sym pathizers is marked by advance guards in accordance with a carefully prepared list, and is neither burnt :ior pillaged when all around is destroyed. Under cover of the wine business of Hermann von Mumm, spies have secured the Champagne country un til they knew it better than the French general staff. Everything is I forseen and arranged for in the Ger man invasion and occupation the position of trenches, good shelters cemented platforms for big guns, and even stores of ammunition in disus ed quarries. Every assistance is being given the German generals by the unparalleled system of espionage. In these early weeks they have every advantage and only their own mistakes stand between them and victory.

Just 45 years later the world was to learn that there was murder in Richard’s heart that day.

Threatens To Shoot Up Camp If Son Not Freed Daily Dispatch Bureau, In the Sir Walter Hotel, By J. C. Baskervllle. Raleigh, Aug. 22. — a coun ty mountaineer named Wilson a few days ago threatened to “shoot up’’ the Mitchell county prison camp with a machine gun because the superintend ent refused to let him see his son, a prisoner in the camp, when he came to visit him, eputy , Wiarden L.
