'Altoona. Feb. 12. —While the tem

A GENERAL'S BAGGAGE
It Is No Indication of the Fighting
Quality of the Man
It may be laid down as a military
axiom that a general's ability is not
measured by the amount of baggage he
takes to war.
It is said that when General Sir
John French embarked to take com
mand of the British forces fighting
with the French against the Germans
in northern France all the baggage ho
took was contained in a siugle suit
When •' Stonewall'' Jackson started
out on a campaign he took along no
| porsonal baggage except a withered
; carpetbag of ancient pattern, and even
j this modest receptable was but half
I filled. \ Both these generals bear dis-
I tinguished reputations as successful
Contrariwise, when Napoleon 111,
! Emperor of France, left I'aris in IS7O
to take command of the armies which,
he said, were going straigl\t to Berlin
ho took along forty-eight trunks, be
sides a most voluminous kitchen ami
bedroom equipage. The Germans got
every scrap of it all at Sedan. Hit
son, the iPrince Imperial, escaped from
Sedan and the beleaguering German:
with his personal effects, which filled f
special train of five cars.—Washingtoi
There were several great painters ii
