Dealing With the Absorb

"Do you think that you will tsike
the little apartment Cousin Tom
just showed you?" asked Evelyn Ma
son with an eagerness I couldn't un
She was guilding her roaster
through the heavy afternoon traffic
of the Avenue and her wistful, little
face had a look of competence and
assurance that I'd never before seen
it wear. She appeared suddenly to
be one of those people who know
what they want — : and go after it. I
wondered what she wanted of me! •
Then, as if in answer to my un
spoken question, Evelyn turned to
mo. In a second the dimples flashed
ot about her soft red lips and her
ryi s widened in that childish smile
of hers.
"You think it is—an intrusion on
my part—this interest in your fu
ture abode. Anne, dear, let me ex
plain. i Jim Harrison and I were next
door neighbors when we were kid
dies. That was before the Harrisons
lost their money—and we piled up
ours. Jim is trained to luxury. After
he gets over this soldiering craze of
his, he's going to want it again.
Cousin Tom likes you; he's offered
you a bargain—those two stunning
ly furnished big rooms with bath and
kitchenette between. It will be easier
to keep Jimmie at his own fireside if
you have a beautiful apartment like
the one you just saw."
An ugly little shiver ran down
my spine—why should I need lux
urious surroundings to keep my hus
band at home—lvoitldn't our love do
A movement later Evelyn was
guiding her car up to the entrance
of the Walgrave.
"Won't you come to tea?" was just
forming on my lips, when I saw two
figures swinging into the broad door

A New Suspicion

the verge of liking Betty Bryce. but

again. If Jim was too busy to go

curb. I thanked her for all she'd
done for me, murmured a few plat
itudes about hoping she would lunch
with me soon, and fairly rushed into
the hotel after Jim and Betty. Two
or three minutes of hysterical dash
ing up and down corridors brought
me face to face with them in the
door of the tea room. They greeted
me with delight,, which—though I
hated myself for it—l felt was clever
Betty and fny husband ordered
Orange Pekoe with lemon and toast
Melba. I chose ginger ale—but the
mere fact that they were ordering
in unison and that I had struck a
dissonant note gave me an added
feeling of being the outsider.
"Anne, Betty's been telling me
about her splendid new plan. She's
going to travel about the country for
three months doing welfare work
In the camps. Isn't that great?
Wouldn't you love to be foot-loose,
Mrs. Harrison, and do something big
like that for your government?"
Perversely I began to wonder if
Jim would like to he "foot-loose."
Every time he met Betty Bryce I
sensed In him a certain restlessness.
I hated my words almost as they
formed in reply to Jim's question.
They were catty, but they seemed
fairiy to say themselves:
"Oh, I'd feel so conspieuo is trav
eling around camps—alone and un
Mrs. Bryce laughed good-natured
The Great Bargain
"Of course you would, you dear
young, thing. But I'm an old stager.
Two' years of driving an ambulance
in France makes me feel like a big
sister to every soldier in the world."
So that was where Betty and my
hoy had come to be such friends —
on the battlefields of France! I
wanted to tell Betty how wonderful
I thought she was; I wanted to ask
her about her work—but I couldn't
find words. Instead I began talking
eagerly—too eagerly and too fluent
ly—about the great bargain Tom
Mason had offered me.
Jim and Betty exchanged glances.
My husband spoke questionlngly:
"Tom Mason! Where under the
sun did you meet him? Why should
he rent us two magnificently fur
nished rooms for only seventy-flvo
a month' That's—what do you
think. Betty?"
I felt humiliated. Evidently Jim
didn't think me capable of a clever
bargain. He doubted my judgment;
he asked Pitty's opinion. She lean
ed forward now, eager and delight
ed —"forcing her opinion on us
again." as I told myself.
"I offer you a better bargain, my
dears! Oh", it's providential! My
work is going to keep me out of town
until October. I haven't time to
get my place into its summer clothes
or to find a good caretaker. So here's
where you can, do me a real favor.
Children, I appoint you 'caretakers'
for Betty till she comes back in Oc
tober—and helps you find " a little
nest of your own."
Jim's eyes lighted, as he cried:
"Betty you're a wonder! That is
just what we want, isn't it. Anne?"
I held my voice to cold steadiness
—but I coula feel the blood burning
in my cheeks.
"I hardly see how we can accept
Mrs. Bryce's offer, dear," I said. "If
Mr. Mason's seventy-five a month
looks like—charity to you, what is
an apartment rent free?"
There was a breathless moment —
that ugly word "charity" fairly ex
hailed poison gas. Suddenly Betty
Bryce rose and laid her hand on

You'll Never Miss
the Sugar Bowl
"Hot corn cakes and maple sirup,
oat meal with dates and cream, hot
muffins and sliced peaches."
If any of these things were called
to you early some morning you
would not hesitate a minute about
coming to the breakfast table, would
you? They all sound as if they
would "hit the right spot." There is
not one of them which requires the
presence of the sugar bowl on the
breakfast table.
Breakfast, by common consent, has
come to mean a meal which lowers
the sugar bowl by inches. Ci%eal
covered with sugar; coffee with a
grainy sediment in the bottom of Jhe
cup; fresh fruit with Its natural flavor
almost lost under the heaped-up
sugar. These have been the common
dishes at breakfast in the late lux
urious years.
Sugar has not always been consid
ered a breakfast necessity. Many of
us can remember how surprised our
grandmothers were when we heaped
sugar on our corn meal, mush:
"You 'don't need sugar on mush,"
they would say, remembering days
when white sugar was not so plenti
ful. "If you must have flavor try
a little grated nutmeg. It's good."
Sugar 'on the breakfaast table Is
a matter of taste, not bodily need.
It adds flavor to a good many foods
and spoils the natural flavor of
others. It has been used more and
| more indiscriminately, until the
| American breakfast eaters have come
to sugar almost everything but their
Many foods which are served at the
morning meal are so highly flavored
that the addition of sugar Is pure
extravagance. CofTee has a flavor
of its own which needs no Improve
ment; fresh fruits are highly flavor
ed and already contain sugar.
To foods such as cereals, which
may taste "flat," the addition of a
little fruit or sirup makes sugar un
necessary. The real epicure, prefers
salt. Sugar is often used simply be
cause it is on the table. Leave the
bowl in the pantry and see how little
it is missed.

When Kiau-Chau fell he again
criticised the United States for not
having stopped Japan.
"How can your President allow
Japan to increase in power at the
expense of a white race?" he asked,
indignantly. "Now China is lost to
the world forever. America is the
one power that could have prevent
ed it, but now Japan has got her
fingers on China and she is lost to
us forever!"
After we were in the war, the
Kaiser expressed to me his opinion
that our object in taking this step
was four-fold:
"First," he said, "Wilson wants to
save the money you have loaned to
the Allies. Second, he wants to have
a seat at the peace-table. Third, he
wants to give your army and navy a
little practical experience—unfortu-
nately at our expense. And fourth,
and principally, he wants to prepare
for the war with Japan which he
knows is inevitable. .The Japanese
are the ones which your country
must look upon as its real enemies."
A German officer of high standing
told me just before I left Berlin that
America had made the great mis
take of sending ammunition, guns
and supplies to Russia, via Japan,
because Japan had just retained the
finely-made American articles and
had dumped on Russia a lot of good
for-nothing material of her own in
their stead. "My advice to Amer
ica," he declared, "is to cut the
throat of every Japanese in America
and get rid of the internal danger."
He did not suggest cutting the
throats of all the undesirable Ger
mans who were in Alnerlca, and
who had already demohstrated that
they were far more dangerous than
the Japanese had ever been.
Whether or not the Kaiser and
the Germans generally really be
lieved that America was in danger
of attack from Japan or that there
was bound to be a titanic conflict be
tween the white and yellow races
for the domination of the world, I
don't know, but I have often heard
I that for many years the Japanese
army has been trained by German
officers and, as I have previously
pientioned, vast amounts of ammu
nition and guns were furnished
them. •
Undoubtedly the profit the Ger
man munitionsmakers made on their
contracts with Japan was an Impor
tant consideration, but the probabil
ity is thaC, the principal object of
Germany's conduct in this connec
tion was to be in a position to watch
military developments in Japan.
What better measure could be con
ceived for gauging a prospective en
emy's strength than by assisting in
kts developments? What a splendid
opportunity it afforded' posting
spies and otherwise obtaining mili
tary information against tVe day
when it might prove of the utmost
value to Germany!
In another chapter I have referred
to the excuse the Kaiser gave for
having supplied munitions to the
Russians in the Japanese-Russian
war when I urged that was a
parallel to our course in supplying
munitions to the Allies—which so
embittered the Kaiser and the Ger
mans generally against us. "When
we helped Russia against Japan we
were a white race against
the yellow race—don't ever forget
that—don't ever forget that!"
Along the same lines he fre
quently condemned the English and
the Allies generally for having ac
cepted the assistance of Japan in
the present war. The idea that a
white nation could ally itself with
a yellow or J was little short of ab
horrent to him, according to the
way he spoke.
And yet in the face of all the
Kaiser had said and done in the
years gone by to warn the world
against the menace of the yellow
races and despite the horror he had
expressed at the thought of any
white nation allying itself with a yel
low one, on January 9, 1917, before
we had .declared war against Ger
many, before we had even broken
off diplomatic relations, the German
Foreign Secretary, Zimmermann,
who was simply a tool in the Kais
er's hands, sent to Herr von Eck
hardt, the German Minister to Mex
ico, through Count von Bernstorft,
what is undoubtedly one of the most
Infamous notes which ever emanated
from the fofeign office of a first
class power. Fortunately our gov
ernment was able to intercept it
and brand forever the perfidy of
which the Kaiser was capable.
So eloquent is that note of the
hypocrisy of the Kaiser that I can
not do better than reprint it iiere,
that it may be read in connection
with the Kaiser's repeated expres
sions on the subject of "Yellow
The note runs:

and Japan. Please call to the atten

The Kaiser's Confidence ,f Victory
About twelve years go J - .ttended
the German military maneu />rs at
Liegnitz, in Silesia, having been in
vited by some journalistic friends of
mine to accompany them in the mo
tor allowed the press. The military
representatives of England, France,
America and other countries .were
there with the Kaiser's staff to wit
ness the display of Germany's mili
tary poker. Apparently they were
very much impressed, for I heard
afterwards that one of the French
officers who had been present had
written a book in which he said:
"With such an arm, Germany could
'annex France in six months!"
I happened to mention this fact
to the Kaiser shortly afterwards and
his significant comment was:
"Six months! I should hope so.
It wouldn't take that long!"
The confident belief that when
"Der Tag"—the'day—finally arrived,
Germany would crush her enemies
and accomplish her object within a
few months at the outside was held
not only by the Kaiser but by the
people generally and their conduct
when the war broke out clearly dis
closed it.
When Germany's manpower was
mobilized, no one in Germany be
lieved it would be very long before
they would all be back and every
effort was made to make their few
weeks of active service as little ifk
some as possible. "Liegesgaven,"
gifts of love, consisting of clothing
and food of every description, were
forwarded to them by their relatives
and friends in the most lavish man
ner, although, of course, at that
time the German commissary was
able to satisfy all the soldiers' re
One of my patients told me that
she had sent seventeen hundred
pounds of sausages to one regiment
within a week an-d when I asked her
why she had been so generous she
replied that her chauffeur was a
member of the regiment!
The extent to which the coun
try's resources were squandered in
those early months is evidenced by
the fact that the soldiers had such
an excess of ill-fitting woolen wear
ing apparel that they used many of
the knitted articles as ear-pieces
and cover for their horses. No one
had the slightest idea that the time
might ever come when the whole
nation would be clothed in paper!
At this late day it can hardly be
necessary to establish how thor
oughly prepared the Oermnns were
for the war. but an incident which
occ-rred in the early days of the
conflict may not be out of nlaco to
show the self-satisfled and confident
attitude which all the Germans as

front fighting?" One of the officers
got up and, approaching the ladies,
said: "Our work was completed
months ago. We worked from early
morning till late at night on plans
which our armies are now carrying
out. It is our time to rest."
The resistance that France would
be able to put up was always verv
lightly estimated, and if the inter
vention of England was at all taken
into consideration, the compara
tively small army she could place in
the lielc'. was regarded as but a drop
in the bucket compared with the
well-traine-i German horde that was
ready to sweep across the border.
How could England's 80,000 men
cope with Von Kluck's 500,000 or
the hastily mobilized French armies
resist the thoroughly prepared,
equipped and well-disciplined Ger
man warriors?"
It is really not to be wondered
at that the Germans firmly believed
that they would bring the allies to
their knees within a comparatively
few weeks and that the conquering
German armies would celebrate Se
dan Day, September 2nd, in Paris.
That actually happened is of course
too well known here to require re
cital, but I know that the Germans

were kept in absolute ignorance of
the marvelous resistance the allies
were able to put up in those critical
days of August and September, 1914,
und to this day the majority of Ger
mans have not heard of the Battle
of <he Marne!
The only newspapers I was able
to get at that time were German
publications, and there we read daily
of how the French were running like
rabbits, how their morale was brok
en and how the advance on Paris
was progressing much more rapidly
than had been anticipated. The pa
pers came • out with such flaring
headlines as "Sieg auf Sieg"—Vic
tory Upon Victory." "Woods of Com
piegne Burning," "Fall of Paris Ex
pected Hourly!" The streets were
thronged with enthusiastic crowds
waiting for bulletins, and automo
biles distributed extras free of
charge. •
It was several weeks after the
Battle of the Marne when I hap
pened to notice in an obscure cor
ner of one of the German newspa
pers, a German translation of a
short item from a French newspaper
stating that a number of Parisians
had made Sunday excursions to the
battlefields to collect German souve
nirs In the form of helmets, swords
and guns. The thought naturally
arose: "How could people from
Paris collect souvenirs from an ad
vancing German army? The Ger
mans must be retreating?" but it
was many days before I secured an
English newspaper which confirm
ed my hope.
As the months went by and the
war still continued it must have
been quite a problem to keep news
of the actual happenings from get-
plete control did the government
have over the press that they suc
ceeded in sustaining the confidence
of the Germans that the war would
soon be over and the German cause
would be triumphant.
