INSTRUCTION" by the Germans of (He famous old
witlu-dral of Notre Dame ut Roints, tht- most liei'l'eei
specimen of Gothic nivltitecture loft in the world, ami one
of tho historic monuments of Europe, onuses widespread
regret and indignation.
" The cathedral has had an interesting history, almost as
interesting as that of the city of Reims, which dates hack
before the Koman conquest. Reims was the ancient 'ap
ital of the Komi, a Gallic tribe which made voluntary sub
mission to the "Romans, proved loyal and became a favorite
Roman city. Christianity was established at Reims in the
third eenturw when the bishopric was founded. The Van
dals captured the city in ll)l, and Attila the lluu burned
Olovis. after his victory at Soissous in -ISo, was bap
tised at Reims in HH, and subsequent kings desired to be
consecrated with the oil of the "sacred vial," brought from
heaven bv a dove for the

including Charlemagne, testified to its importance. The
archbishop of Reims took precedence of all ecclesiastical
peers of the realm and consecrated the kings of France,

By the treaty of Toyes in 14120, Reims was ceded to
England, but the English were expelled by .loan of Arc.
who. in 1420 caused Charles VI 1 to be consecrated there.
A revolt, due to taxation, in 14GI was ruthlessly sup
pressed by Louis XL In the religious wars, Reims sided
with the league, but submitted to Henry IV after Ivrv.
In the Napoleonic wars it was captured and recaptured.
In the Franco-Prussian war it was captured by the Ger
mans, made the seat of a governor-general and impover
ished by requisitions.
The cathedral of Notre Dame, where many of the kings
of France were crowned, replaced an older church, burned
in 1211, on the site of tne basilica where Clovis was imp
tised by St. Kemigius. It was completed, with the excep
tion of the west front, in the thirteenth century, and this
portion was later finished along the thirteenth century de
signs. The voof and spires were destroyed in 14S1 by fire,
but rebuilt, ami the facade and balustrade were repaired
at a cost of $400,000 in the 70's.
This facade was called the most perfect masterpiece of
the middle ages. The three portals were laden with
statues and statuettes. The central portion, dedicated to
the Virgin, was surmounted by a rose window framed in
an arch, itself decorated with statuary. The "gallery of
the kings" above has the baptism of Olovis and the statues
of his successors. Tho towers are 2G7 feet high. One con
tains two great bells, one named Charlotte by Cardinal de
Lorraine in 1570, weighs eleven tons.
The facades of the transcepts are also decorated with
sculptures, with statues of the bishops of Reims, with a
representation of the "Last Supper," with figures of
Christ, the prophets and apostles.
The interior of the cathedral was 45 feet long, 5)8 feet
wide in the nave and 125 high in the center. It had a pro
fusion of statues and thirteenth century stained glass. It
was hung with rare tapestries, with priceless paintings by
Tintoretto, Nicholas Poussin and others, and adorned with
carved woodwork and figures.
The loss of this cathedral is the world's loss. Its de
struction could accomplish nothing.

In spite of the bombardment and

Germans hao been unable to taka

and Chalons. The allies haui re
pulsed tho German attacks and made
scleral Impetuous counter-inoo-ments
In which their Infantry

gardless of tho terrible storm or
Tho first ranks suffered terribly,
but as fast as tho men fell other
rushed up to take their places and
when the enemy's Hues wero reached
there were furious hand to hand oil
counters In which the Germans ere
forced to ghe ground except on tho
heights of llrlmon, which, owing to
the overwhelming flro of machine
guns, the Germans captured.
At tho same time tho French made
a fierce asault on the heights of l.n
pompelle, which they carried nt thi
point of tho bayonet. Tho struggle
hero was a desporste one and after,
tho retirement of tho Germans, Titr
cos wero found dead from bayonet
wounds with their hands clasped In
such vlco-llko grips around tho necks

Persons who hare returned from
Ithclms say that ft Is difficult to find
words to describe theso attacks nnJ

showers of shot and shell and In n
ilclugo of rain. The Germans, they
assert, seem In a desperate hurry to
finish their task and aro enraged at
tho stubborn reilttanco ot the
French. Tho Germans, thoy say, had
all the best ot (ho position at tho
opening of tho battle, but the situa
tion Is now changed and tho French
haui been able to gain positions on
