PAGE EIGHT 1,363,000 FRENCH | KILLED IN BATTLE " i Statistics Are Striking Appeal Against Wars. F’aris. — The most striking appeal against future war is contained Jo statistics finally worked out regard ing the lasting records of France’s war losses. M. Gaston Cadoox, for mer president of the Paris Statistical society, now has made reckonings which peace organizations In every country might well keep in mind for future propaganda. The population of France at the outbreak of the war was 39.000,000. From these the government mobilized for the army and navy 8,355.000. Os this number 1,363,000 lost their lives. This figure represents one-sixth of the mobilized effectives, one-seventh of the masculine population of the coun try and one-twentieth of the whole. If the dead alone might be drawn up In a serried line It would require the Twentieth Century Limited, trav eling without stop at sixty miles an hour, some nine hours to react the end. The entire mobilization of hu man material by France would have reached from San Francisco to New York if placed shoulder to shoulder. Comparing the percentage of losses suffered by the principal belligerents. M. Cadoux reckons that his country had one dead or missing per 28 inhab Hants, as'against 35 in Germany, 50 ir. Austria-Hungary. CO in Gnat Brit ain, 79 in Italy, 107 in Russia and 2,000 in the United States. France’s agricultural male papula t!on of 5.608,971 lost 099,219. Os 1,327,150 engaged in commercial pur suits, 155,977 were lost. Os 915,080 artisans of the building trades, 108.747 'did not return. There were 235,320 men of liberal professions mobilized and 40.432 died. Transport workers numbering 00.972 failed to return of 06,7,029 who went to war. There were 21.420 civil servants. 2.712 eeclesias tics, 50.190 students and 9.493 persons of independent means without proses slon killed. The statistician’s reckoning shows that the return of Alsace-Lornlne did not compensate for the ghastly hole lorn in the populace by war. Where as the population of France was 39. 000,000 in 1914. it has fallen to 39,- 209.000 after these provinces returned lo the fold. Records Show German Soldiers Were Sold Berlin.—-Investigation into the man tier in which some of the fortunes of Germany's former royal houses were acquired, In connection with the ques tion of Indemnification by the repub He, has disclosed that German prince tings up to the Nineteenth century had sold 296,166 of their subjects for $3,750,000 to England for army serv ice against the American colonies, the French and other enemies.

It is disclosed lylth an additional Indemnity of $22 n head for each man killed in action three wounded men to be counted as pne dead one.

Baron Hohendorf. his commanding officer In the American colonies. In which the writer commended the bar .on “for seeing to it that of 1,950 ol the landgrave’s peons in the battle of Trenton only 300 escaped alive.” : “Be sure to send an itemized state ment of the losses to London,” the letter continues, “as the English in in Ister wants to pay me for only 1.455 killed. I am entirely dissatisfied with Major Mindorf. who. according to dis patches, succeeded in saving his bat talion of Hessians.” Tokyo Girls Object to Marriage Customs Tokyo.—The modern Japanese girl — a canvass at a girls’ high school dis , closed —does not favor the present-day system under which most of the mar rlages are “arranged.” In opposition to the prevailing mode ' fifty-three girl?, in one school said that to marry men of whom they had no f previous knowledge was dangerous ? Sixteen were opposed because the ous tom ignores the sentiments of the ones to be married. Ten objected to the use of a go-between to make arrange ments and all agreed that the mar rlage question should be more serious ly considered.
