“Last September, in returning from Switzerland, I passed through the upper valley of the Rhine, of which Strasbourg is the crown and capital, at the very time when the city was enduring its fiercest ordeal of fire. Weep not for me,' said our Lord to the daughters of Jerusalem, warning them of the approaching siege, but weep for yourselves and for your

children At every stage, I saw how children were involved in the keen sufferings of the war. In neutral Switzerland, were children spending their sunny play-time in picking lint for the wounded. At Basle, we met a troop of fugitives, barefoot, barebeaded

, and in latters, half of whom were young children ; and at Calsruhe, a mother with four children, just escaped from Stras bourg, who had been entombed in the cellars for days past. At Mannheim, the wife and little son of a distinguished French officer were waiting hour after hour for some tidings of him who was wounded, a prisoner, and lost amidst the crowd of the other victims of the war. Thus vividly impressed with the great and sad share which falls to the lot of children in all the misery produced by the crimes and mistakes of men, I wrote the story of Max Kromer,' softening down rather than heightening the horrors of the siege of Strasbourg.

In conclusion, I dedicate this little book to my noble countrymen and countrywomen, who are spending themselvesnot their property, merely--in aiding the distressed peasantry of France."

Above is the Author's Preface, just received, for the Second Edition of Max Kromer.",
