PARIS, Sept. 23. Though appar
ently the German plan of battle has
been changed and Paris now does not
appear to be in any danger of siege,
the time when the Kaiser's troops
menaced the French capital and were
within a few miles of the Paris forts
served to remind the people very viv
idly of the former siege of Paris by
the Germans in the Franco-Prussian
war in 1870-71.
There are today in Paris thousands
of people who remember the former
siege, and to them the feverish activ
ity of a few weeks ago when tons of
provisions were massed in the city
and herds of cattle grazed in the Bois
de Boulogne, were pregnant with
memories.
On Sept. 2, 1870 Macmahon surren

CALLING IN THE
STATE'S DEPOSITS
IN ORDER TO MAKE PAYMENT
ON $250,000 SUM OF THE
STATE'S DEBT.
NASHVILLE,. Tenn., Sept. 23. In
view of the fact that the sum of $250
000 is to be paid on the state debt on
Oct. 1, the state treasurer Is drawing
rather heavily on the state deposito
ries for funds to meet the payment.
The money must be in New York Oct.
1, and must come from the treasnry,
as the sinking fund of the state has
dwindled away to less than $100.
State Treasurer Hickerson realizes
that the banks sorely need this mon
ey just at this time, but he has no al
ternative In the matter, and will be
compelled to draw in large sums at
this time to meet the state's obliga
tions. The treasury bank balance
will not be burdensome, to say the
least, after paying out this $250,000
