At least one Zeppelin and possibly

the heroine of the war.
Mme. .Macherez is present of the
Dames Francaise. an organization re
sembling our Colonial Dames. It was
she who, in the absence of all civil
authority in Soissons. went out to meet
the Germans, out-negotiated them when
they demanded tribute, took charge of
the city's civil business, managed the
hospitals, superintended municipal san
itation, did everything, in fact, to
maintain a semblance of administra-
tion and order.
A military aviator was flying over
Soissons as we talked, Germans were
approaching, the French had gone out
to meet them, rapid fire guns were
making a noise in the distance some
thing like a busy threshing machine,
and the crackle of rifles could be heard
less than a mile away.

"The special municipal election takes
place on Tuesday, October 27, 1914.

"It is suggested that this may in a
measure be corrected by a plan simi
lar to this:
"On Monday let each teacher in your
building discuss with her children the
duties of a citizen, stressing particu
larly the duty to vote.
Discussions Are Impartial.
"Then let the language lesson in the
grammar grades be the child's repro
duction of this. Finally, let every
grade above the first have, as a pen
manship lesson, an announcement of
Tuesday's election and a short request
for every voter to use his privilege.
These are to be carried home and dis
cussed. "It is understood, of course, that all
discussion of the election will be
strictly impartial and without the
mention of candidates' names. Re
spectfully "L. A. ALDERMAN,
All who learned of Superintendent
Alderman's plan today approved it
heartily. It is sakl to be the first
time an election has been used not
only as a means of education in the
work of language and penmanship
classes, but also as a means of call
ing the attention of parents to their
duty as citizens.
