"Are you coming out on the front
porch, dear?"
Elizabeth started nervously at the
sound of Mrs. Chapin's voice in the
door of the kitchen.
"Oh, I'm so sorry!" the matron
added, suddenly remembering that
Elizabeth had not assisted at tho
departure of the son of the house—
"Clifford's gone and you never told
him 'Good-by!' "
The girl smiled. "You mean he
net er told me 'Good-by,' " she cor
i'ected. coming out into the hall.
She immediately regretted her
words, for she saw that the devoted
mother feared her son s negligence
had hurt this young thiug.
"That's too bud," Mrs. Chapin
toothed. "1 guess he was so full of
[getting oft that he never thought
.a thing about it. No doubt he'll send
.some message back by Mr. Butler."
Elizabeth smiled again. "You
.must not suppose that 1 mind, dear
.Mrs. Chapin." she said. "To tell the 1
truth, I stayed in the kitchen on
purpose. When people who love one
another are parting, strangers are
best out of the way. I know I do not
want anybody around when I have
to say good-by to my dear brother." j
Mrs. Chapin gasped, then laughed. |

Just after the English passed their
| conscription law 1 was called to see
j the Kaiser at the Great Army Head-
I quarters, which at that time were
!at Pless. Although the war had
i then lasted two or (hree times as
] long as the Germans had expected,
the Kaiser masked the depression
i he must have felt by putting on a
i bold front.
"How foolish for England to start
' conscription now." he declared. "She
; thinks she can accomplish in a few
months what it has taken Germany
! a hundred years to attain. Armies
and officers cannot be developed over
night. AVe have never stopped pre
! paring since the days of Frederick
j the Great!"
"Yes, your Majesty, but the Xorth
! Crn States in our Civil War put in
conscription two years after the be
ginning of the war," I suggested.
"But just look how long your war
i lasted." the Kaiser replied quickly.
"This war won't last that long. The
Allies will feel what the power of
Germany is long before English con
scription can avail them anything!"
"And while England is slowly
building up her insignificant army,"
| the Kaiser went on. "she will see
j America's navy and merchant ma-
I rine constantly growing and the dol
lar replacing the pound as the unit
of the world's finance. No, Davis,
England will soon be sick of the
war and will look with fear upon
America's growing power!"
The inspired German press ridi
culed the possibility that England
could build up an army by conscrip
tion. Pictures of loafers from Hyde
Park, London, were printed in the
German papers as ludicrous samples
of the kind of material out of which
England was trying to form an army,
and the suggestion was made that
she would put the Turcos and Singa
lese in the front trenches and keep
her Amateur army in the rear.
The French army was too gener
ally belittled, and the Russians were
believed to be absolutely negligible.
The French army was so poorly
equipped, it was pointed out, that
the officers had to go to the field in
patent leather boots, and on the

11. I)o Your Children Chatter or Do They Know How to Listen?
WE ALL know funny stories 1
about the . "dreadful" children
who talked too much when the
minister or some other important
personage was a guest at dinner—
and some of them, alas, are all too
You may enjoy your children's
chatter just because they are your
children and you love them, but
when there are guests you often be
come painfully aware that it is only
chattering after all. So the ques
tion arises whether children should
sit at the family table. One mother
"I have spoken with various moth
ers of well- behaved children and
find they admit that talking at the
table may increase the child's vo
cabulary but assert that, no matter
how well young children be trained,
they could not use judgment and the
practice had to be discontinued. What
plan would you advise me to adopt?
As a regular policy, children
should sit at the family table, but
they should learn not to monopolize
the conversation. Sentences and si
lences —these are beautiful. Teach
your children to speak when they
have something to say—not just to
think aloud. "Why don't you say
something, Laura?" a grownup ask
ed one little girl in my presence.
"Because," the wise child answered.
"I have nothing to say." Thir child
at least was not a chatterer.
For the sake of the health of the
adults as well aft for the sake of the
joy of the children, weighty matters
should not be discussed at the table.
This too often is about the only
time when all members of the fam
ily meet together and It should be an
especially happy time.
In order to guard against too much
talk at the table by children, when
there are guests, say something like
this to them: "Mr. and Mrs. Brown
are going to be here tor dinner to-
Russian front only the tlrst line men
had guns, the others being armed
with clubs!
All this may have been true, of
course, but the remarkable thing
about it was that the German gov
ernment circulated the reports as
widely as possible, never realizing
apparently, the raw inconsistency
of enlarging upon the total uupre
paredness of the English, French
and Russians to wage war while
they obstinately contended that it
was the Allies and not the Germans
who started the conflict!
Eventually, officers and soldiers
returning from the western front
on furlough or passing through the
country en route from one front
to the other, brought the report of
the defeat before Paris. Soldiers
who participataed in that disastrous
retreat wrote from the new trenches
to their friends and relatives telling
of the terrible experiences they had
undergone, when they went for days
with nothing to eat but raw pota
toes and turnips which they picked
from the fields.
When these reports finally spread
through Germany the people began
to realize that their generals in the
west were not meeting with the
same success that von Hindenburg
had had in the east and von Hin
denburg became the idol of the peo
ple immediately, a fact that was very
distasteful to the high command.
The Kaiser's dislike of von Hin
denburg was of long standing. He
had never forgiven that general for
the mistake he made during mili
tary maneuvers in peace time when
by a brilliant stroke of strategy he
had succeeded in capturing the
Kaiser's forces, including the Kaiser
and his who.e staff! When war was
declared, Hindenburg was a retired
citizen in Hanover and he would
have remained in that capacity if the
Kaiser could have had his way. The
fact that Hindenburg lacked social
status and was particularly gruff in
manner no doubt had much to do
with the disfavor in which the Kais
er held hlnj.
In the early days of the war,
however, when the Russians were
sweeping into East Prussia, the high
night. We shall enjoy having theml
and all of us will have a good time
together. You will want to listen
well to what they say, for to-morrow
I shall ask you what was the most
interesting thing talked about, and
to the one who can tell it best I shall
give a present." Let the present be
something thant can be shared, such
as candy, or a new game. Make it
very clear why the prize is given. If
there is only one child in the home,
reward him for remembering the
conversation of the guests.
This method has a double value.
First, it teaches the children that
conversation should be interesting.
Second, it makes them listeners in
stead of talkers.
With young children Just begin
ning to talk, of course, this could not
be done. It is a good plan, when
very young children are allowed to
be at table with guests, to allow them
to have all of their meal at the
I time that the first course is served
and then excuse them from the
table, as a many-course dinner tires
them. ,
If parents habitually use good
judgment in their speech and action
in the presence of their children, and
also use correct methods of training,
the children will be found to exercise
good judgment also.
The great mistake, made by so
many parents, is to think of children
as a nuisance. "What shall we do
with the children?" is a common
expression in some homes. And the
children generally succeed in mak
ing their presence well known.
The better way is to speak to the
children beforehand, lodging some
positive suggestion, and in a co-oper
ative spirit establish in each child a
mind-set in favor of the desired con
duct. Gain the confidence of the
•hlldren and then tell them what
you expect. If confidence is really
established they very likely will re
spond to your expectations.
command felt itself compelled to
dismiss the German general who was
responsible for that defeat, and
Hindenburg was hailed by the peo
ple as' the one man who could stem
the tide. The Kaiser was accord
ingly compelled to acquiesce and
Hindenburg was placed in charge
of the army in the cast. How com
pletely he vindicated the confidence
the German people had in him is
already well known. He swept the
Russians Into the Masurian Lakes
and snatched victory out of the jaws
of defeat.
His success onlj' Increased the
Kaiser's dislike of him and everj'
obstacle was placed in his way. For
nine months the Kaiser withheld
sufficient troops to enable Hinden
burg to follow up his successful
campaign, all the available men and
supplies being sent to von Machen
sen and von Falkenhayn instead to
give them an opportunity to distin
guish themselves and gain some of
the glory and popularity which von
Hindenburg seemed to be monopo
It is reported that at this period
'the Kaiser suggested certain tactics
to von Hindenburg and that the gen
eral responded by unbuckling his
sword and offering to give up his
command. Gladly would the Kaiser
have accepted his resignation but
even that imperious monarch dared
not so antagonize public opinion. He
yielded to his recalcitrant general
and from that time on allowed him
to go his own way.
Hindenburg's star was now in the
ascendancy. Von Moltke. the Kais
er's favorite, had popularly disgrac
ed himself by the failure of the Ger
mans at the Marne and by the suc
cess of the Belgian and English
armies in escaping from Antwerp
over a single pontoon bridge. His
place as commander in chief was
then given to von Falkenhayn. the
reason given for von Moltke's re
tirement being his "failing health."
Then came the failure of the Ger
mans at Verdun and the approach
ing entry of Roumania into the war
on the side of the Allies, and Falk
enhayn in turn fell from grace. The
high command at this time tried to
prevent the Kaiser from talking to
Hindenburg but he was so worried
over the military outlook that he
called Hindenburg and Falkenhayn
to him for a conference. It is said
that the latter tried to take the cen
ter of the floor and do the talking,
but although he was higher in com
mand, Hindenburg told him to "shut
his mouth," adding: "When I fin
ish talking to His Majesty you may
begin." Then he pointed out to the
Kaiser some of Falkenhayn's great
mistakes, remarking: "Who ever
heard of a general attacking his en
emy at his strongest point"—refer
ring to the campaign against Ver
The Kaiser was apparently so im
pressed with Hindenburg's argu
ments that, distasteful as it was to
him to do so, he appointed the peo
ple's idol as commander in chief in
Falkenhayn's place. Jealous as he
was of that general's popularity, he
