A company In the German army is commanded b v a captain, who is mounted, and it~]'~ e nr four lieutenants, and is about ;,~ strong as a battalion in the United S,,Es army. Their bat- talion con.~lsts ~, ~our e(~mpanies and lu commanded by a major. Its war str,~gth is 1.083 men, With sixty ofl~- cc,.~, nineteen vehicles and 1.0(K) rifles. A battalion is almost equal in strength to an infantry regiment of the United States army. The regiment consists of three batt~lllons and a machine gun conlpany, which is tile thirteenth company, and is eommnndcd by a colonel or a lieutenant colonel. The war strength of a German regiment is 3.290 men, 190 horses and 59 vehicles.

Can you give a sketch of the German emperor'S personal traits as known to the intimate= of his private lifo, to those who see him in unguarded rap- ments?
