Indeed, since the war began more than one American woman is known to have been shorn of her clothing under suspicion that dangerous spy was disguising her A I'i'Cneh automobile is approach ing the French lines along the Kiver Aisne. Jt is rilled with men in French anitorms and with two nuns. The i-'reneh sentinel stops the party. Jle dnds the entire lot to be Herman sol diers. Action is about to be taken when an otticer in a French uniform rides up to take charge. One of the sentinels is cautious enough to ask he officer for his papers. Jn the papers he finds one letter wrong. The next morning the whole bunch pas sengers of automobile and the phony otlicer who rode up on horseback are shot, but it was a close call. "I shall never forget what a hard time I had over there taking motion Pictures," says Kdwin F. Weigle, the Chicago Tribune's camera man in the war zone. "No sooner would I get .started turning the crank than a sen tinel would approach, demand my japer.s, and take the most aggravating pains to read them all through and identify my photograph before allow ing me to continue in my work. "The sentinel would be extremely serious until he had thoroughly con vinced himself I wras not a spy, and then, relaxing, he would invariably 'onvcrso about the camera. They weren't afraid of the pictures 1 was taking- although even in times of pace photographs of fortifications are orbidden they wore afraid 1 was ! merely pretending to be a photogra lhr." '. Hut it is not merely since the war .-began that the countries of Europe t.iave had such a fear for spies. Dur Mng these recent years, while Europe was becoming more, and more an armed camp, the suspicion of spies ?ias been constantly increasing, and for a good reason. "Perhaps the most useful of all types of spy is the international cour tesan, whose achievements will never i known today or tomorrow, but who. in her own twisted way, helps to make the history of Europe," says a British ollicer who served in the C.er iaan army, and who has just written a book called "The German Army From Within." "The great Frederick is reported to have said, I have one cook and a iiundred spies.' Today the position is a little broader, for since Germany has .seen herself as the future apex of world power the courtesan is always welcomed in Berlin and other large towns and furnished with ample funds for work in other countries. "These are a curious cosmopolitan eompanv, mostly Parisian, though they display no national idiosyncrasy, and it would be difficult for the ob erver to ascribe to them any particu lar nationality. They will appear 'everywhere,' as the phrase goes, ex pensively gowned and accompanied by squires of recognized social position, and may perhaps acquire a reputation for sailors' homes of rest and so forth.

"Upon ohsevvin" its position, the waiter a secret agent on the ce deliberately tipped over a champagne glass thai stood within a few inches nf the bag. Of course, Mademoiselle was worried lest the wine run over her gown, and while thus preoccupied the waiter, stammering apologies, mopped up the tablecloth with his serviette mopped up the wine and cleverly covering the bag folded it in the napkin and hur ried away. In two minutes he had opened it, abstracted the letter from the young ordnance otlicer, and was back, apologizing to Pavlowa. " 'Your pardon, mademoiselle,' he said, handing her the gold chatelaine. Jn my haste 1 picked up this bag by mistake. 1 suppose it is yours.' With a, slight start she said 'yes,' took the bag, and hurriedly opening it felt for the. letter. To her dismay it was gone. I saw her eyes narrow a little and then I marveled at the cleverness of the woman. " 'No,' she suddenly said, 'that is not my bag. J never saw it before. .1 ad vise you to find the owner.' "Clever Anna! You sacrifice the costly gift, but you went over the frontier just the same." The idea of a gigantic spy system, operating in times of peace, is so for eign to American ideas thai there is an inclination to discredit the occa sional instances of spying to which public opinion is directed. But dur ing times of peace these agents of the governments are everywhere active nevertheless. Since the days of Moses, ministers andheads of departments have found it necessary to obtain early and cor rect information other than that through the usual official channels. Persons unknown in official circles must he empioyea. in recent years Germany, England, France and Rus sia have kept the most stringent watch each other's movements. We will say that the secret agent receives nis oraers irom neauquaneis of the Intelligence Department of the Imperial Navy in Perlin at Koenlg- gratzerstrass U lor uermany is known to have the most perrect secret service system of any country in the world. .Solid, but unpretentious, the building in which the headquarters is located is the embodiment of Prus sian efficiency, and is decidedly well guarded. The man who is sought for the service the government knows its men well before trusting them with the work learns early that he must not ask oue&tions, that he must not talk, and that there are many unwrit ten laws attached to the system. The agent of the government, known by an official number and signing all his communications with a given number, m-.iv he sent to poe as a botanist . i 41-, v.ui .,r" Port Arthur. In ia uiiau lov - this instance Germany wishes to know i.iHve strength of the Russian positions in the far East before set ting out to undermine Russian influ ence south of the Austrian border. The next hurried trip of the gov ernment agent may have been to Con stantinople to discover which of the court officials there were m I rench and Russian pay. He is ordered to find out the favorites of the high offi cials and officers, especially the pa- ohm. these women.

Mead points out invthis pamphlet, the Franco-Prussian war caused Mrs. Howe to take a new view of the righteousness oi war. He says that while this war was still in progress Mrs. Howe was visited by a smid'mt feeling of the cruel and unnecessary haracter of the contest. "Jt seemed to ine," Mrs. Hoe wrote, a return to barbarism, the is sue being one that might easily have been settled without bloodshed. The question loreea used upon me. w uy do not the mothers of mankind inter fere in these matters, to prevent the waste of that human life of which they alone bear and know the cost? I had never thought of this before. The august dignity of motheih"o,i and its terrible responsibility now ap peared to me in a new a-spect, and J couiu tmng oi no oettr wa oi ex pressing my sense of these than that of sending forth an appeal to worn anhood throughout the world. Mr. Mead relates that Mrs. Howe immediately drew up such an appeal, imploring women the world ov r to awak to their sacred rights and du ties to protect human life from the frightful ravages of war. She called upon those women in whose hearts her appeal found response to assist her in calling and holding a congress of women in Ivondon, to organ ice a holy crusade of women against tin war system. She had The appeal translated into French, Spani.-h. Ital ian, German, and Swedish, and dis tributed copies of it far and wide, devoting two years almost entirely to correspondence upon the subject with the leading women in various coun tries. And on this line she kept writ ing all the rest of her life. Mr. Mead proposes the raising of p. 100.000 fund, to be call' U the Julia Ward Howe Peace.
