| A novel suggestion for recruiting the Army is j given by the "Spectator." We spend over £ 1 Is. | a wees on each soldier, and. yet cannot get re- I cruits, it -says, because the soldier does not realise what he iB getting, and will not regard money spent on him, butnot by him, as his own money. If we will only offer £ 1 Is. a week and his cloth- ing to the sn!(ii«r, whict we can afford to do, and tell him, except when under canvas or abroad, to house himself and feed himself just as does a policeman, we shall, we believe, get as many re- policeman, we shall, we believe, get as many re- cruits as ever we want. There has just died at St. Chamant (Cantal), a former Treasurer-General of Metz, who, when the fortress passed into the keeping of the Prussians, adopted a, bold expedient to prevent the enemy gaining possession of the funds in his care. At the risk ox being shot (which would have been his fate had the act become known), M. Henri Conderc first took the' numbers of the bank-notes, and then made a. bonfire of the whole, one of the numerous instances of courage and self-possession which the 'war called forth on the part of the French.
