The same sharp challenge to battle

in the same proud way—the way of
our fighting men—the American way.

We must show the war-maddened

Our task is to supply the money,

spirit of Victory.
We must work, and save, and lend

“ I was almost as much ashamed as 1

In the reign o f Louis-rhilippe, a
Monsieur Tt rrat had been charged
wLh the duty o f fighting hugs In the
oa -racks o f Paris. It must be believed
thi.t the result was satisfactory, since
by virtue o f an order o f the general
insoector contracts were made In 1840
with Monsieur Terrat for the destruc
tion o f these frightful insects. Mon
sieur Terrat demanded 80 centimes foi
each sleeping room. In case the first
flglt with the bags was not decisive
and If he should have to begin again
after some years, the second operation
shothl cost only 50 centimes n room.
Moreover, In these operations he de
stroyed the Insects In the arms-rack,
guard house, police quarters and
prisons. When he became old Mon
sieur Terrat offer«! to comraunUcatu
the secret to the stnte for nn Indem
nity. But this offer was not accepted.
