Although Elizabeth Wade was de

have no word with John Butler that
night, she had reckoned without her
hostess—as she was to discover
Clifford did not return immediate

He was too much excited to be
willing to face his parents and
Butler just yet. He was also deep

of his ground, so secure in his self
conceit, that his breath had been
taken away by Elizabeth's recep

f-he had not had the grace to be

make things very painful for her if

He did not explain even to him

went down to the shed where he
kept the hired automobile, mutter

The car would serve as a reason
for his staying away from the house
until he could gain sufficient calm

There must be some reason why
this girl was so territleyd by the
danger threatening her. She must
care very little for Wade if she was
willing to have his reputation to
say nothing of her own ruined.
Perhaps there was another man.
Clifford Chapin stopped short,
struck by an idea that seemed to
illuminate everything.
Now he understood. The girl had
designs upon John Butler!
He recalled trifles to which he had
paid scant attention at the time of
their occurrence. He remembered
how Elizabeth Wade had spoken in a
confidential aside to John Butler one
evening when Clifford was about to
take her driving. The pair had seem
ed on remarkably good terms even

it all. Butler had supplanted Wade

him Clifford Chapin! She was such
a fool that she fancied he would let
her get away with this kind of stuff!
Well, he wouldn't!
Consideration for his parents, and
their position with regard to the own
er of the farm, made it seem unwise
to divulge to them just yet what he
had discovered. But he would let
Butler understand the whole thing. He
would make an opportunity to "put

It might not be an easy thing to'

making a scene. The only way for
Clifford to do this would be to per- 1

j was so unsuspicious that she would

He Leaves the Car
Getting into the car, he drove it up
to the front gate, stopping there in

"Why did you leave the car down

it into the yard."
"It's so dry here on the house!

dust over you people, so I thought
I might as well leave it out there." ;
Clifford evaded.
He took a chair close by his (

A German U-boat had sunk a
British vessel upon which were some
of the relatives of the crew of the
liaralong. The crew of this U-boat
was subsequently captured by the j
Baralong, and according to reports j
in Germany they were harshly :
treated. Then it was reported that
the Baralong had been captured and |
that Iper captain and crew would be
summarily dealt with.
"I hear that we have captured the j
captain of the Baralong." the Kaiser
declared to me at that time. "If we;
can prove that he's the man, we'll.
lix him!"
The manner in which the Kaiser
spoke left no doubt in my mind that!
the direst punishment would be:
meted out to the unrortunate Brit- i
ish captain. j
Booty is undoubtedly a legitimate j
incident of war, but it is legitimate .
only as an incident. Otherwise booty j
becomes loot. In any event, when i
invading troops seize private prop- j
erty it is customary to pay for it. j
That the Germans were good takers
but poor payers is revealed by two
incidents which the Kaiser narrated
to me. and the keen enjoyment "he |
derived front them can be fully un- ;

how much the Kaiser appreciates!

"Rumania wanted our gold for
food products," he told me. "They
demanded pure gold, and they set
enormous prices on their wares; but
we needed what they had to sell
and we were ready to pay even the j
outrageous prices they demanded. |
And then they foolishly declared j
war on us, and we got it all for
nothing! When I spoke to Hinden-1
burg about the contemplated cam-1
paign against Rumania he said, |
'This will be a very interesting cam
paign.' It was. We got all we!
wanted and din't have to pay a
penny for it."
The Kaiser beamed all over as he
contemplated the results of Ruma- !
r.ia's entry into the war.
When the German troops entered
Tarnapol. Russia, at a later time,
they captured vast quantities of
American-made supplies.

The old education crushed the child's;
imagination; the new education fos-1
ters it, knowing it is the child's most'
priceless heritage.
Unfortunately many children learn i
to enjoy trnsh while many children
never learn to take an interest in
books of any sort. Those children
are indeed to be pitied who grow up
with a pronounced dislike for read-;
ing good books.
Here is an example. A mother >
writes to me:
"My nine-year-old daughter
enjoys being -read to a great '
deal and I enjoy reading to her, I
but my four-and-a-half-year-old ]
twins do not enjoy it and rebel I
every time a book is brought i
forth. How would you deal
with the situation?"
Use suggestion in this manner: 1
With a new. attractive little book In
your hand, suddenly appear to be ]
very much amused. Laugh aloud so'
that the boys' attention will be at
tracted to jou When they look up]
at you, as much as to say. "Well,
what is It all about?" say, "Oh, this)
is the funniest story! Little Jack j
here started to ride a big dog andi
when the dog started to run—-Come
over and sit by mother a minute and
we'll hear the rest of the story." The
boy's naturally will do this.
Now. in a very enthusiastic way, t
read several short passages whirhj
involve a great deal of action and,l
when the boys are keenly attentive,

uoetors were strutting around as if
they owned the world," declared the
Kaiser, "when one of my officers was
approached by a group of long
haired, greasy Jews, who claimed
that these supplies belonged to
them. 'They are our private prop
erty; we bought them and we should
be compensated if you take them,'
they contended. 'Did you pay for
them?' my officer asked. No, we
didn't pay for them, but we gave
our notes,' they replied. 'Then, said
my officers, 'when you take up those
notes we'll pay for these stores; in
the meanwhile we'll just take them.'
We secured bandages, serums—
everything in fact that we needed
so very badly, and we got them all
for nothing!"
I did not know at that time that
the German army lacked medical
supplies, but later 1 saw paper
bandages in use.
I have previously referred to the
Kaiser s defense of the use of Zep
pelins against Paris, London and
other nonmtlitary cities. He de
clared that it was proper to make
war on civilians, because England
was endeavoring to starve Germany.
On one occasion I pointed out to
him that in 1870 the Germans had
besieged Paris and had starved its
"The' cases are entirely different,"
he answered, hastily. "Then we
were besieging a city, and the civil
ian population had plenty of oppor
tunity to evacuate it before the siege
began. England is besieging a whole
nation, and trying to starve my
women and children, who have
nothing to do with war."
I couldn't help thinking of - the
"whole nations" which had been
[ absolutely crushed under the Kai
ser's heel—of Belgium, Servia and
' Poland.
; The Kaiser never admitted that
i the destruction of the Lusitania was
| r result of special instructions from
I hint to the U-boat commander, but
j in discussing the general subject of
I submarine warfare he asked:
"What right have Americans to
| take passage on these vessels, any
iway? If they came onto the battle
field they would not expect us to

j point, saying that you wish you
I could finish it now, but you have to
i attend to something in the kitchen.
; They, of course, will want to know
j what is to happen next in the story,
i And they probably will ask you for
| the rest of it.
Always manage so that they will
! be anxious for you to read to them
; more than you do. Always speak of
- reading to them as a privilege, not
I in so manv words, of course, but
| through suggestion. Since they have
< been in the habit of rebelling at the
j idea of reading in general, it would
be well at first to refer only to some
particular book which you are teach
ing them to likes. After using the
correct method for a while they will

; they can get you to read.
You might have the children make;
< a book of their own. Furnish ma-1
; terial for them to cut out animal pic
! tures and pictures of children and l
| paste them in a scrap book. They
will take delight ,in cutting pictures
! out of old magazines. Help them to|

; mals. This will make the first reader
i at school seem more interesting to
! them when they come to study it, j
because the plan of pictures, fol
| lowed by descriptions, is used in the
I readers.
It is natuval for mothers, who'
have trouble interesting children, to:
say, "Don't you want to listen to
me read a while? Come on, sit,
over here, I won't read long." But!
this, obviously, is wrong. Children j
should never be coaxed.
The method prescribed is correct
because it tends to create a desire ■

stop firing, would they? Why
snould they expect any greater pro
tection when they enter the war
zone at sea?
"Don't ever forget," he went on.
"a bullet from a pistol would be
enough to sink one of our U-boats.
How can we stop and board vessels
we encounter to ascertain whethe
they are neutral and not carrying
contraband? If what appears to bo
a neutral should in fact prove to
be a belligerent, or if a belligerent
should heave to in response to our
submarines, how can we safely send
a boarding party over when a rifle
shot from the vessel in question
would send vis to the bottom? Ob
t iously, if America persists in send
ing munitions to the allies, there is
but one thing for us to do—sink
the vessels."
When I suggested that while the
\ ulnerability of the submarine un
doubtedly lessened its value in con
nection with the right of search
which belligerents have under inter
national law, still the law ought to
be observed, the Kaiser interrupted
me hastily with the remark.
"International law! There Is no
such thing as international law any
In that assertion, of course, lies
the answer to all the questions
which have arisen in connection
with the conduct of the war. If the
Germans recognized no international
law but were guided solely by their
ideas of expediency and the demands
of "Kultur," then the whole course
of the war became perfectly clear.
The use of poisoned gas, the de
struction of unfortified towns, the
desecration of churches, the attacks
on hospitals and Red Cross units,
the countless atrocities committed
against civilians and prisoners of
war, require no other explanation.
No such thing as international
law any more!
Domooruoy's Worst Enemy
The great military machine which
the Kaiser had built up during the
first twenty-six years of his reign "for
the purpose of maintaining peace"
was constantly itching for war. There
was a feeling among the militarists
that while it was all right for the
Kaiser to assume the role of the
| "Prince of Peace" during the period
!of preparation, it was possible to
' overplay the part. He so frequently
| referred to the fact that his sole
| purpose in maintaining a large army
! and navy was to maintain peace that
the warlords of Germany began to
fear that perhaps he might mean it.
It was a grievous blow to the war
party iri Germany when all their ef
forts to precipitate a war in 1911
over the Moroccan affair fell down
because of Austria's failure to back
up Germany. Although they had no
slight opinion of Germany's military

power, it was considered dangerous
to provoke a war without Austria's
co-operation. It was better to wait
until Austria could be forced into it.
Germany readily acquiesced in the
annexation by Austria of the Servian
provinces of Bosnia and Herzogovina,
which naturally embittered the Ser
vians. because it was believed that
thereby Austria would the more
easily be coerced into the war which
Germany intended to start when the
opportune moment arrived.
The murder of the Archduke
Franz Ferdinand, the successor to
the Austrian throne, and his wife, by
a Servian on June 29, 1914, gave
Germany the excuse for which she
had been waiting so long to start a
European conflagration and found
Austria as anxious for war as her
But even had Emperor Franz
Joseph shown reductance to plunge
his nation into war and had Austria
refused to chastise Servia for the
murder of the Archduke I doubt
very much whether the Kaiser would

It touched him in one of his most
vulnerable spots. The sanctity of
royalty is one of his most cherished
ideas. He felt sponsor for the mon

heart, and with or without the co

It is true that the Kaiser sent a
[ message to the Czar of Russia in
i which he pointed out that Austria

I via without interference from the
I other European powers, remarking,
i "We princes must hold together,"
but there can be no doubt that that
was very far from the outcome dear
est to his heart. If, indeed, the pun

would have been a most disappointed
man. and if Russia had failed to
