BEFORE THE SANDMAN COMES
INE little butterflies started out
pne day for a frolic.
They were not the gorgeous
iwn and black and gold butterflies
u read about and sec only occa-
nally. No, these were tiny little
pte butterflies, with nice long snow
Etc wings. Very plain and very
idest were they, with never a
lught for the color or the size of
ir wings. And they lived close at
: never coin? but .1 verv little
from the bush which they called
Ir own,
hen this one day a great gorgeous
ferny came along, and spied the
little butterflies liittincr here and
e in the sunshine.
Jcarie me, I'm sorry for you," he
Sorry for us!" exclaimed the nine
THE JAPANESE CHIMES.
--- BHs3;si5acSjIgf
"Tinkle, dinkle, dinklc, tinkle,"
That's the way your song first ran
When I heard you in the morning,
Little chimes from far Japan.
"Tinkle, dinklc, dinkle, tinkle,"
Just the same as you began.
Did you learn no other music
When you lived in far Japan?
Ijttle butterflies in surprise, "why
ihou'.J you be?"
It was the big butterfly's turn to
look surprised now. "Why shouldn't
1 be5' he asked.
"Because there is nothing about us
little butterflies happily,
to make you sorry," replied the nine
The big butterfly sat down on a
twig so he could sigh comfortably.
One can't really sigh while flying m
the air "Oh, dear, but you are unedu
cated, he said mournfully.
"Is that so?" said the nine inter
ested little butterflies, "won't you
please explain to us why we are so
unfortunate ?"
Of c urse the big butterfly would
nothing he would like better and he
started in at once.
"In the first place," he began, "you
re too small."
One little butterfly laughed. "Or
"Dearie ne, 1 n torry for you," he old.
'you're too Urge, just according to
how you lu jk at sues."
ihe biff butterfly looked offended.
SB
IrMlr' '
y'Oi course, if you mean to interrupt
pthat way ' he said.
Please excuse me besrsred the little
i butterfly, "and go on we want to
hear more "
The biK t 'tierflv allowed them to
I smooth his n rM feelings with pleas
ant scundir- ( utcry Then he con
tinued his u;

"you are 17 j ,-, small"

a bit restlessly, but they very politely
kept still.
"In the second place," he continued,
you are so very plain, just plain
white wings nobody likes those.
Now, if you were handsome as I
am " and he slowly waved his
gorgeous wings back and forth so
they all could see how very handsome
he was.
The nine little butterflies were very
much impressed. But they couldn't
quite forget that they were happy as
they were.
"Of course," one little butterfly
finally ventured, "it's all very well to
be beautiful. But if you're not, why
worry about it? Why not go ahead
and play and work and enjoy life as
it comes?"
The big buttcrflv looked IWe.l.
"Oh, if that's the way you feel about
it, I suppose it's just as well you are
not beautiful." And then he added
wickedly, "But it is too bad to be so
plain nobody likes you."
Now just at this very minute, nine
little sunbeam fairies who lived in
that same bush came home for a rest
and they spied the gorgeous big but
terfly. ...1" .' d,ear'" w''spered one fairy,
there s that conceited big butterfly.
Still talking about his good looks, I
suppose."
The nine little butterflies looked up
eagerly. "But do you like us even if
were not beautiful?" they asked.
The sunbeam fairies laughed. "In
deed we do," they replied. "You're
the very best play fellows we ever
had. Come on and take us for a
rider
The nine sunbeam fairies each hop
ped on a white butterfly and left the
conceited big butterfly all alone with
ins nanusonie self.
Nine little butterflies started out for
a frolic but you must wait till to
morrow to hear what they did.

NDRSE YIEWS WAR
HORRORS ON FIELD
AT CLOSE RANGE
'Tralnloads of Agony," She
t Describes the Arrival of
Wounded Women Gath
er Crops While Men Fight.
NEW YORK, Oct. l.-A nurse who has
returned from the European war zone has
narrated vividly her experiences on the
field. x
"When I landed, tho day before yes
terday," she said, "I waa struck by
crowded thcatro entrances and signs of
luxury. I've como from whero they arc
Bolng without butter, without sugar, with
out now clothes, to pay for disinfectant
for encampments, bandages and cotton for
wounds.
"Never have I seen such an abundant
harves In Franco as they had this year.
Coming up through the southern part I
B.aw tho orchards loaded and propped up;
tho vineyards overflowing, nnd a full, rich
wheat harvest Tho fields wcro swarming
with women workers, bent over with
lined, determined faces. Children were
helping, and here and there In tho fields
wcro baskets covered with green branchs
the cradles of the youngest to whom
war was not even n word. Trudging up
and down tho field, the women stopped
at tho hampers now and then to peer
Into them or to feed tho mites."
"I asked one woman why she did not
send the older children to school out of
tho way. "There nro no schools open,"
sho said. One of tho younger boys, IS
years old, had disappeared from a boys'
school gone to tho front, sho supposed.
They had saved for his schoollng
so much per week.
"When I asked If sho had heard from
her husband, she stared nt me as If I
were a messenger como to toll her tho
worst. She clutched me roughly with
whitening face. I said I knew nothing.
She was not a strong woman, nnd the
work of home, children, and fields was
breaking her. I gave her a bottle of
tonic I had with me. They had a little
?,nrs "read, fruit and eggs, and about
J-5. There had been no time to prepare,
bh did not complain: with bulging eyes
Just told mo the facts.
I saw stumbling, shambling women
nnd children pushing on In a mass In
which thcro was nn occasional cart
filled with babies nnd old men. I thought
tho exodus from Delirium had stopped,
but they were still coming. Such faces!
'Gnunt, forlorn, desolate women, some
with ahawls-lt was chllly-somo with
nothing to wrap nbout them.
THE INFANT WITHOUT A HAND.
"Thcro were two nr thmn i,t,,i..i
least. They seemed to be numb with
Physical pnin. We wont In among them
and singled out one who was half
dragged by two others. She turned fierce
eyes upon mo, and I saw that the six
months' infant she clutched had had Its
hand severed at tho wrist with a cross
wise cut. which wus neither bandaged
nor washed, but wrapped In a towel. And
then I noticed a bulging on the woman's
form, and sho disclosed tho icasnn, they
had cut off her breasts, each to the depth
of an Inch. I saw them.
"I tried to find out why, but all they
would do was to mutter about enraged
soldiery.
TRAINLOADS OF AGONT.
"I went down near the railroad sta
tion near DIJon with my case of gauze
and cotton. I know tho wounded were
expected. I can see them yet. Train
upon train of old open freight cars. Jerk
ing, bumping along, with those hioken
bodies lying flat on tho bottom with
neither pillow nor cover; Just as they
wero gatnercti rrom the field. Am
bulances thcro were, but not enough. A
handful of nuns with the doctors and
nurses worked at whlto heat.
"One man whom I helped to bandage
up. had four bullet holes In his body.
Thoy had been clean-cut wounds, but
they were grimed as If ho had crawled,
Inch by Inch.
"Every hall In town was turned Into a
hospital, but there wcro no cots, no
blankets for a third of them. Wu did
not have enough pans to boll water In,
enough cloths to stop the bleeding, nor
enough towels to wlpo cold sweat from
faces. Some of us spoko poor French,
and the doctors hud no time to explain.
Wo did the best we could. One of the
surgeons who was helping told me ho
Just come over from IiIb own hospital,
which was tilled with women who had
been outraged. He said that such things
always happened In any war.

WAR INDEMNITIES
STAGGERING PRICE
LOSING NATIONS PAY
Bismarck's Seizure of Alsace-Lorraine
Startled the
World Penalties Im
posed in Recent Wars.
When Erasmus described war as "the
malady of Princes" he was not so accu
rate as would nt first appear. It may
bo the Princes who are 111, hut It Is the
people who suffer the consequences and
foot the bills, says the New' York
Tribune. Tho cost of the present war
has been estimated many times, but
when It Is over tho losers will factf a
further stupendous outlay In tho Indem
nities of money nnd land which will bo
exacted from them.
At the end of the Franco-Prussian
wnr, In 1871, Bismarck demanded nn In
demnity which staggered tho world.
Nothing of tho sort had been dreamed
of before Not only did Franco loso
Alsace and Lorraine, two of her best
provinces, but she had to pay In cash
the stupendous sum of 5,000,000,000 francs,
or $1,000 000,000. This vast sum of money
was obtained only by tho loynlty of tho
French people, who In thousands of
cases gave up their Jewelry nnd silver
waro to help mako up the nmount. The
lost territory and hardships caused by
tho huge levy have never been forgot
ten, and tho defeat of tho Kaiser will
mean that France will ask for a return
of both. Should sho nsk for Interest on
tho $1,000,000,000 for 44 years It would
mako an almost Impossible sum.
Tho exacting of a tribute In money or
land, or both, from a defeated enemy Is
as old an war Itself, and there are a
number of Interesting examples In recent
times. When the American Colonics
achieved their Independence thoy won tho
ownership of their own territory as the
result of military success.
V. B, ANNEXES TERRITORY.
Tho biggest indemnity ever obtained by
tho United States, however, was that fol
lowlne tho war with Mexico, In 18(7. Tho
decisive victory won by tho United States
resulted In Mexico giving up all claims
to territory north of the Rio Grande.
No cash Indemnity was obtained from
Spain after the Spanish-American war,
hut besides tho freedom of Cuba this
country obtnlned Porto Rico and Guam
outright and the right to buy tho Philip
pine Islands for $20,000,000.
The American Civil War brought nbout
11 strange condition In the matter of war
Indemnities. As a result of tho naval
activities of the South, England, a nation
which had had no part in the war, was
compelled to pay nn Indemnity of over
$10,000,000 to the United States. This wns
because of nn lndlicct participation In
the destruction of tho American merchant
marine.
Prussia, flinco her rise to power, hnB
always Insisted on a course of unrelent
ing punishment for tho victims of her
arms. This was shown In the Franco
Prussian War by tho terrible tax men
tioned above, as well as In other con
flicts. In the Seven Weeks' AVnr of 1S6
Prussia took tho field against her pres
ent ally, Austria. Prussia was then the
greatest of tho German stntes outside of
Austria, and had ambitions to become tho
ruling power among tho Teutonic people.
Tho smaller German states, realizing that
tho defeat of Austria would mean the
loss of their independence, took side
with tho Hansburgs.
PRUSSIA'S HEAVY DEMANDS.'
After a brief campaign Austria was
entirely subdued. Ily way of Indemnity
l'rus-sia annexed Hanover, tho Elbe duchies
nnd tho electorates of Hesse, Nassau
and Frankfort. The old North Gormun
confederation was also broken up and a
now one organized, with Prussia actually
In control. This great addition of terri
tory made possible the present German
Empire, as proclaimed at Versailles after
the full of Paris.
Closely following the establishment of
tho German Emplro camo tho Russo
Turkish War of li77. Ruhsia won a
rather doubtful victory over the Sultan,
but the Indemnity did not go to the
Czar himself. However, It meant a de
cided blow to Tuikey. Tho treaty of
Ilerlln, which followed the Russian-Turkish
trouble, recognized the Independence
of Rumania, Servla and Montenegro, en
larged Rulgnrla nnd created the auton
omous state of Eastern Rumella. Threo
small provinces wero ceded directly to
Russia by the Porte. Though Russia's
territorial gain was small, she had ac
complished her purpose of weakening the
Sultan.
Eight years later Bulgaria annexed
Eastern Rumella. Servla became Jealous
ond started 11 war of nggiesslon. liul
garla was victorious. No cash Indemnity
wns oxneted, but Servla was compelled
to give up all her claims to any Interest
In the annexed state.
The Far Eatt was the seat of the next
two Important wars. Japan defeated
China In 1S93, and compelled tho latter
to hand over the rich Island of For
mosa, as well as part of tho Llao-Tung
peninsula. Japan was again victorious
In 1903, when she fought Russia. Tho
tieaty of Portsmouth jirotlded for tho
ceuiitK ui i-uiv .nwiui u aupau, mil
called for no cash Indemnity.
COLONEL'S PLEA DENIED
Court Refuses Change of Venue in
Barnes' $50,000 Libel Suit.
AMl.VNV, Oct. 1. -Justice Chester to
day denied the motion of Colonel Rooso
velt for a change In the place of trial
of William li.irncb' libel suit for fW.UM

IN EAST WAR ZONE,

Germans Held Back in Po
land and Silesia Russians
Move Against Cracow ih
Two Parallel Columns.
VIENNA, Oct. 1.
Four gigantic battles and two fort
bombardments, Involving fully 6,000,o6o.
men, aro In progress In the eastern .theft-'
tro of war today. At no point has thefo
been any decisive result and It will be'
several days before the fighting, wfl!
roach a crisis.
General Rcnncnkampf, with ' l.OOO.OfJO,
Russian first-line troops, Is endeavoring
to resist the efforts of General von itlri
denburg's army to cross tho NJemen
River between Drusskcnlkl nnd Grodno,
Tho fighting nlong this line Is of the
most sevcrev character. Up to tho pres
ent It has been Impossible for tho Ger
mans to break through. ,
Another Gorman army Is engaged with
COO.000 Russians In tho big plno forest of
Augustowo, which Is 21 miles long and 35
mites broad, nnd Is filled with small lakes
and a canal that connects the Nlemon
and tho Vistula. This German- army
was driven from the village of Augus
towo and Is now being used to protect
Hlndcnburg's flank and renr.
GERMANS FORTIFY SILESIA.
Tho great Russian central army, In
tho direct charge of tho commander-ln-chief,
Grand Duko Nicholas, Is made up
of ono million fresh 'troops, who have
been mobilized In Russian Poland to movo
against the main German nrmy, which
has been feverishly fortifying tho entire
lino of tho Sllcslnn frontier. This force
was today ropqrted In contact with the
German advance guard, which has been
pushed forward to protect the lines of
communication to CraeowV Thl3' fight,
now little more than a skirmish, Is ex
pected to develop Into- tho greatest bat
tle of the' war In the East, as tho Ger
man troops engaged nre thoso which -were
withdrawn from tho West to try to stop
tho Russian advance.
Meanwhile there aro between n million
and a million nnd a half Russians in
Gnllcla moving In two parallel linos. The
northern column, which" has enveloped
Przemsyl, today had completed tho in
vestment of Tnrnow, E0 miles cast of
Cracow. Tho fall of Tarnow Is antici
pated here aa the Russians far outnum
ber tho Austrian garrison, but there ex
ists no good strategic reason for trying
to hdld the city, ns the troops that would
bo needed there will be of far greater
valuo In Cracow. Tho second aallclau
army, traversing tho southern Una and
overflowing Into tho passes of tho Car
pathian Mountains, mounted Krosno
after a desperate resistance, In which the
Austrian garrison Inflicted enormous
losses on tho Russians.
The combined German-Austrian armies
In tho thcatro of war do not number
2,000,000, Including all reserves, while the
Russians have moro than 4,000,000' al
ready on tho scene. Yet at no point have
tho Russians scored a distinct victory
since tho opening of the battles. In the
north the lighting is entirely In Ger
man territory, while In the south, In
Gnllcla, tho Austrlans havo withdrawn
toward Cracow for strategic reasons.
An otllclal statement Issued hero says
that the entire situation is "satisfactory;"
that the garrison at Przemysl maintains
Its advantage, Inflicting great damage on
the Russian besiegers In sorties, and that
while Cracow will bo besieged It "can
bo expected" to hold out Indefinitely.
