Admission to the battlefield
A celebrated anecdote of the time of Napoleon has repeated itself. A young sentry has disputed the passage of the High Command, holding that they were misinformed about the pass-word, which was not "Free-hand" as they supposed, but "Empire-Free-Trade". It is feared that if someone does not promote the sentry immediately the war may have to be postponed.
