The oldest work of fiction extant
la thought to be the "Tale of Two Broth-
ers," written 3,200 years ago by the
Theban scribe Ennnna, librarian of the
palace of King Menepthah, the sup-
posed l'hnruoh of the Exodus. The
tale. It appears, was written for the.
entertainment of the crown prince,
who subsequently reigned as Seti II.
His name appears lu two pluces In the

States owes to France and to the mem-

dark hours before the dawn of free-
dom for America, France poured forth
her men and money In quantities that
were in those days most Impressive.
It is not generally remembered that
France furnished more troops than
America at the battle of Yorktown,
where final victory was won for the
struggling colonists. In that battle
there were engaged 3,500 militia un-
der Gen. Thomas Nelson, 5,500 conti-
nentals under Generals Washington,
Lafayette and Alexander Hamilton and
7,000 French under Ilochnmbeau, be-

itary, naval and transport servico
, which France sent to our aid lu the
American revolution amounted to 47,-
080 men nnd 00 vessels of war and
Gave Money aa Well as Men.
France, moreover, advanced to the
depleted treasury of tho revolutionists
the equivalent of $50,000,000, without
Interest, a loun or gift which she has
never claimed. Furthermore she
agreed, and ndhered absolutely to the
compact, that she would ask no share

Incident to victory. This agreement
was the more remarkable In view of
the fact that Englnnd had but a short
time before taken the richest of French
possessions—tho Dominion of Canada.
And It was almost wholly due to
Lafayette that this Invaluuble uid was
given by France to the new republic.
At the time of the declaration of In-
dependence of the United Stutes,
Lafayette was only lu his nineteenth
year. Ills life had been one of ease
and luxury. Ills family was among
the most eminent In France. He was
a nobleman with the title of marquis.
He never had encountered those influ-

There’s nobody so busy ns the man
who doesn't want to do something
and set forth Immediately to congress,
which was then In session at Phila-
Congress at First Lukewarm.
His name nnd fame had preceded
him, yet such was the unsettled state
of affairs that when Lafayette went to
Philadelphia congress was at first luke-
warm concerning him. Some of the
members could not sense the zeal nnd
devotion of n man who had come 3,000
miles to tight in n cause not his own.
There had been a contract signed in
Paris through which Lafayette was to
have the rank of major general in the
American army. Even the wise Frank-
lin. however, did not realize to the full
the worth of Lafayette at this time,
for in a letter of advice he speaks of
the distinguished rank and family of
r/ir rcorijr QBfyeA/rcf
the young soldier and hints that on ac-
count of the fact that he had a lovely the American standards was largely
termination iu his manner that Wash-
ington at once welcomed him to his
staff. As soon ns the opportunity of-
fered the leuder of the Continental
army put Lafayette In command of
large bodies of men and that judgment
was well justified.
The marquis was severely wounded
at Brnndywine without being aware of
it for a time, so Intense was his devo-
tion to duty. When he recovered he
renewed his activities at the right hand
of General Washington, and lost no
opportunity to serve the nation which
was then coming Into being. He was
with the great leader at Valley Forge,
where he conducted himself with such
sympathy nnd understanding that he
wns soon ns beloved by all the officers
as by the commander himself.

Washington once remarked to La-
fayette that to one accustomed to being
with French troops the appearance of
the soldiers of the colonies must indeed
have seemed unusual.
"I come not here to teach, but to
learn,” was the reply of Lafayette.
Enlisted Aid of France.
Part of the year 1779 was spent by
Lafayette in France, where he did so
of the Pennsylvania
troops, nnd was re-
enforced by the mi-
litia from the Vir-
ginia tnountnlns. With
4,000 men he gave
battle to Cornwnllls
nt Albemarle nnd sent
him in retreat to
Yorktown. The sur-
render of Yorktown
soon followed, and
Lafayette stood by the
Ride of Washington
when the British
forces laid down their
arms. He received the
thanks of congress
for his part In this

In the present struggle for the wrest-
ing of the world from the grip of an
avid Attila Americans, British and
French are shoulder to shoulder at the
front. How our General Lafayette
would have enthused and gladdened nt
the thought! The quarrel of the Amer-
ican colonies, many historians show,
was not with the people of England but
with a Hnuoverinn king who acted
against the counsel of the wisest states-
men of British birth. The instinctive
love of fair play which is implanted in
the Englishman rebelled at the thought
of a colonial taxation without represen-
