seem plausible to her. Sho may talk of the
Slav peril, and of being forced into war. One
fact remains. Ever since tho victory over
Franco her purpose has been to attain world
supremacy. For 35 years the German Kaiser
waa preparing for this very thing. Ho built up
his formidable war machine. He waited, nnd
Impatiently, for the time to strike. Tho Austrian-Servian
imbroglio presented the long-de-slrcd
opportunity. Then he shook his fist at
the civilized world, and started to spread Ger
man culturo with battalions and bullets. For
years tho Kaiser lias had his spies working In
all countries. I know this to bo a fact. I have
a friend who was intimately connected In this
spy system of tho Gorman Government He
told mc, for instance, that the Kaiser had spies
throughout tho 1'nltcd States before tho Spanish-American
war. Ho waa rather on the fencs
as to what stand he'd take, and ho wanted to
ascertain the feeling of our German citizens.
Ho was told by his spies that every one of the
3,0110,000 subjects of German birth in this coun
try would take up nims If neceseary against
tho Fatherland In defense of tho United States.
This was true, nnd I believe is still true. Re
lieved of the obscff-lon nnd curse of militarism
the Gorman is the finest citizen in the world.
Perhaps the annihilation of ts war machine
will mean real civilization for Germany.
"Talking nf the Franco-Prussian war recalls
some interesting things. I had intended, th
year the war broke out. to go and see the pas
sion play at Obeiammergau. The conflict ne
cessitated tho postponement of the play, how
ever, as alt tho men taking parts had to serve,
Tho man who played tho pait of Christ I
forget his name was compelled to take up
arms, AVoll do I lemember him even now
The German captains permitted him to march
In the rear of his company, but it was a
strange spectacle this meek, gentle man, with
long linlr, marching along In military uniform.
"At that time I developed an absoluto lack
of fear a sort of contempt for disease. Na
poleon had brought over to France thousands
of African soldiers. They wcro mighty poor
fightcis. Following the German army, I met
hundreds of these prisoners as they were,
brought In. A horrible form of small-pox
spread among them they went down by tho
hundreds. Yet I mingled with them, talked
about the war and served them with cups of
beer and sandwiches. Of course, I didn't get
the disease, and I've never feared disease
"Yes, it's come. And no ono can tell what
the result will be. And on this side we all
Play our parts-I on tho stage-you, in life.

The tales tho Frenchmen told of the cruelty of
tho Germans wero ghastly. It came to me
then-tho thought that this nation would some
day pieclpitato a world war, and endeavor to
feccurt world supremacy, and that the brutal

nations. I didn't think I'd live to see it. but.
well, It's come.

preceding civilization Certainly Geiman civ
lllzatlon has b.en obllteiatcd in thl conflict.
