Pofcrograd correspondent of the "-Daily

the lighting in Russia:
' • The Germans .are astounded and
disheartened to always find themselves

the same men on the firing line long
enough to become stale.
"In this way the vastness of the
Russian Kmperor's army of 8,000,000

$40,225,000 DAILY COST
OF EUROPE'S IMTIC WAR
Correspondence of tlie Associated Press. !
Paris, Oct. 29.—The war bill which j
Kurope is meeting daily is now figured
up as follows:
Russia $ 14,000,000 !
France ' 7,000,000 j
England 5,000,000 j
Various 3,000,000 j
The French appropriation is from 1
official figures as announced by M. Hi- j
bot. Minister of Finance; the English
estimate by the London "Statist;" the;
German from "an authritative sourse"i
in a Geneva paper, and the other sums;
from various conservative estimates':
which have appeared in one place or
another. The item "various," repre
sents the probable expense to *vhich |
Servia, Belgium and the neutral coun-!
tries of Switzerland, Italy, Rumania, j
Turkey, Greece, Holland and Denmark |
have been put.
The vast total does not include the i
destruction of property where fighting 1
is taking place, nor the well-nigh in- j
calculable losses to Europe of 20,000,1
000 men under arms being taken from j
production. Therp are no indications in j
France that exhaustion has set in, but
it is evident that the accumulated j
treasure of even the richest country ■
on the continent is being poured out at I
a rate that adds $200,000,000 a i
mouth to the national debt.
