TOLD OF GALUFFET
ANECDOTES OF "ENFANT TER-
RIBLE" OF FRENCH ARMY.
Once Ate a Wlneglaee on a Wager-
How He Attempted to Lead a
Cavalry Charge Down a
There is hardly a Parit paper which
does not every few days print a story
about the late Marquis General da
Gailiffet. who crowned an adventur-
ous career by accepting the portfolio
of war In the "Cabinet of Republican
Defense" only to And himself face to
face with M. Millerand. the socialist
minister of commerce, whose father
Gailiffet had once ordered to be shot.
That was during the Commune.
"I forgive you," said the son cor-
"I had no idea be waa such a bad
father," remarked the Marquis dryly,
refusing to take the proffered hand
A volume of Galliffetiana has been
compiled by M. Louis Tbomaa. Soma
of the stories told of and by the cav-
alry officer, who waa an 'enfant ter-
rible" all his long life, are new. Hera
is a bet of Galllffet's:
"One evening, when 1 waa quite a
young officer, 1 bet that I would eat
a wineglass, stem and \all. and I did.
1 took some time about It, but I ate
It. My mouth was bleeding when I
had done, but I went to bed all right
At 3 in the morning I woke up in
fearful pain. I tried to think what
I had eaten, and then I remembered.
It was the wineglass, of courae I
proceeded to kick myself. 'Gallltfet.'
I said, 'you're an asa. You were going
to die for your country, and now you
are going to die in your bed. because
of a driveling and disgusting bet.'
While I cursed myself the pain
stopped. I turned around, went to
sleep and woke up fresh and fit In
the morning, and thought no mora
about the wineglass."
Some say that the pluck which Gal-
llffet certainly had came from a good
digestion, which he certainly seems
to have had also. Here Is a military
anecdote of him:
"During some maneuvers ha was
watching a charge of cavalry under
his orders. Suddenly the leading
squadron stopped dead. Qalllffet
roared, 'Send me 4he colonel!' and ha
V "'Now, colonel, what'a wrong?*
'"We came upon a road at the
bottom of an embankment too steep
to ride down, air.'
" 'Nonsense, sir! You are not fit
for your Job I will lead the charge.
You go to the tall of the squadron.'
"Gailiffet took the command, gal-
loped to the road and rolled down
the embankment with his horse. Ly-
ing on his back with a sprained mus-
cle in hia leg he shouted to his men
to stop, adding. 'Send me the colonel.'
The colonel came up from the tail of
the squadron. 'Colonel, you were
right; I am a blank fool. You may
take the command of your regiment
Toward the end of his life, when
In a bad temper. GalltfTet insisted on
railing himself a played-out oM idiot.
Journalists would try to interview
him. and he generally showed them
the door with a voluble speech.
"No, sir, every, one knows I am an
old fool. If I were to talk to you
everybody would say. 'What does that
blank blank dotard Gailiffet want to
NATURAL ACT FOR MOTHER
Women Understand That Net Heroism
hut Simply Leva Prompted
A tow days ago, In a aomewhat
equalld neighborhood, a house caught
Are. The flames shot quickly through
the Utter on the floor and the untidy
array of clothing on the walla. A wom-
an talking with a neighbor ran scream-
ing to the house and without an In-
stant's healtatlon sprang through the
amoklng doorway into what already
aeemed an Inferno. A moment later
aha staggered out, her hands and
face blackened and blistered and her
clothing on fire. In her arms she bore
her baby, aafe from harm.
The afternoon papers came out with
the story, printed under headlines ex-
tolling this mother's heroism. Men
read it on the street cars, and as their
eyes gleamed with the stirring of the
spirit which leaps to greet noble deeds
they aald: 'That woman dared to do
hat most men would be afraid to do."
But the mothers who read It at home
did not think that way. Perhaps the
danger of the baby, the wrecking of
the home and the burns the woman
auffered brought moisture to their
eyes, but to them the act was not one
of heroiam—it was simply what any
natural mother, no matter how timid,
would do under the same clrcum-
Albert W. Hebberd, New York's
eharlty expert, said at a recent din-
"The great danger of charity Is lta

be avoided, or the recipients will all
become Jack Hanches.
"Jack Hanch, on the score of bad
health, never worked, and the pastor
of the Methodist ohurch, a man whose
heart aometlmea outran his head, sent
the Idler and hia family weekly gifts
of food and clothing—eupported the
whole craw, In fact
"A church visitor, after listening to
Jack's complalnta one day, aald:
" Tea, of oourae, you have had bad
health, wa know that; but one thing
at least you ought to be thankful for,
and that is our pastor's kindness in
sending you all this bread and meat
and Jelly and blankets, and so on.
Don't yon think it is good of him to
look after you so well?'
" 'Good of him?' aald Jack, impa-
tiently. 'Why, what's ha torV "

come to and been banished from bar
countenance, ahe added:

Mm Study and Prevention
What "A Million for Tuberculoete
from Red Croaa Seals" will do In pro-
viding some of the 175,000 beds need-
ed at once In the United Statea for
consumptives, la explained in a recant
bulletin of the National Association
for the Study and Prevention of Tu-
berculosls. There Is Just about one
bed for every tan Indigent consump-
tives, and if all tuberculosis persons
in the country are counted, both rich
and poor, hardly one for every 25 or
30. If aufllclent hospital accommoda-
tions are provided only for thoee
who are too poor to pay the full
price for their treatment fully 27$,000
more beds In apeclal institutions for
tuberculoeia will ha needed at once.
The Immenae outlay necessary to pro-
vide and maintain so many beds la
hospitals, makea It Imperative, the
National Aasoclation for the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis de-
clarer that such Institutions be erect,
ed from publlo money, either muni-
cipal, county or state. In order to
get appropriations tor public hospitals
for tuberculosis, agitation Is necee-
sary, and in order to create a cam-
paign of agitation, organisation Is de-
manded. But in order that an organi-
sation may carry on an effective cam-
paign, funds are needed.
Theae funds It Is proposed to secure
in as many communities as possible
from the sale of Red Cross seals.

The Evening Fire.
The bright, sweet days of porch
life are fast going. It has come time
again when the evening gathers to
start up the furnace or the grata The
change is not what the heart longs
for. and yet there Is a Joy la watch-
ing the dancing flame drive the cool-
ness out of the air that covers the
walls of the room with a soft gray
tint And then, when the lamp is Ut
and one takes up a favorite book, and
reads and reads, while he stretches
out his legs toward the cheery flame,
he quite forgets the dear old porch
as he mingles with another set of an-
gels quite as bright and fair. It Is
one of the happy experiences of life,
when the first cool evening comes,
and you pull down your curtalna, light
the fire, and rollick at will among your
best and sweetest thoughts. It Is
a great contrast with a day's "raatle"
out In the cold world.

The National Association for the
Study and Prevention of Tuherculoels
gives forcible Illustration of the way
In which a small aum spent In educa-
tion haa secured large appropriations
from state, county, and municipal of-
ficials. The New York State Chari-
ties Aid association In the three years,
4908, 1909, and 1910, has apent In the
up-state portion of New York about
965,000 in arousing the people to the
dangers of tuberculosis. As a direct
result of the public sentiment pro-
duced by this outlay, the state, coun-
ty, and municipal authorities have al-
ready appropriated for tuherculoels
work $1,600,000 and appropriations for
hundreds of thousands of dollars are
pending. Hundreds of hospitals beds
have been provided, and the associa-
tion already alms for "No Uncared-for
Tuberculosis In 1915."
Thus, the National association aaye
If $1,000,000 la realised from the sale
