He began to traverse the out places
of the world in his young boyhood,
drawn to South Africa by the dlumftnd
lure. Finding the real work of hunt

his taste, he worked his way from
settlement to settlement end singing
along the way, just as if he had not
lost all the money left him by his
father. At last he reached Johannes

Peace Tortus Germany Prepared
4 For France
In "Ambassador Morgenthau's
Story," which has just come from
the presses of Doubleday, Pago &
Company, there is an account of the
terms which a victorious Germany
was to impose upon a beaten France.
These are not the imagined terms of
a good "dopester" but are the terms
actually projected by those in su
preme authority and told the Amer
ican Ambassador in a burst of confi
dence by the German Ambassador,
Baron von Wangenheini. Among
other things France was to be forced
to surrender all her art treasures and
pay an idemnlty of $80,000,000.
These terms might prove helpful in
a suggestive way in the forthcoming
peace conference.
French Adore Doughboys' Smile
It was the Yankee' good nature
which first won great enthusiasm
from the French. In his forthcoming
book, "My Company," (Houghton
Mifflin Company) Captain Swan says
that the French soldiers exclaimed,
"The American is a great soldier,
he digs with his left hand, fights
with his right, and laughs ail the
time." This vivid story of D Com
pany of the 101 st Engineers tells
of its evolution from fhe time of the
men's embarkation to their recent
participation in the bitter lighting on
the western front. It is the only hook
1 by an American officer which tells
| the true story of what our boys have
i gone through at the front, its robust
optimism is typical of the American
soldier's attitude throughout his role
in helping to shape the destiny of
civilization. It is largely due to this
confident spirit that America has suc
ceeded so well and will continue to
succeed "over there."

Novelist Scores Own Sex
Mario Corelli, after dissecting the
i father of the heroine in "The Young
Diana" (Doran), turns her pen
i against the lady in the case:
i "But perhaps on tho whole, his
i wife was a greater humbug than he
[ was. She was one of those curious
but not uncommon characters who
I imagine themselves to he 'full of
feeling,' when truly they have no
feeling at all. Her only real passions
were avarice, tuft-hunting and glut
tony,—these were the fundamental
chords of her nature, hidden deep
behind the fat, urbane mask of llesh
which presented itself as a woman to
the world. There are thousands like
her, who, unfortunately, represent a
large section of the mutronhood of

off a freight train at Roseville, then

Lincoln, has now dropped into
Marysville. He was spotted cavort
ing around on top of the parsonage
of tho Presbyterian Church, eagerly
eyed by young America of Marys
ville. "Tramp Monkey" was run out
of Roseville after he frightened sev
eral women by appearing at back
doors for a "handout," as it were.
Next he was captured on top of a
two-story business building at Lin
coln. He escaped and fled up a
creek. He has now traveled thirty
or forty miles.

Little Talks by

How can one know whether one's
love Is real?
What are the tests to which one j
should subject onesejf?
Being ablo to display many of Ihe
most celebrated symptoms doesn't
prove by any means that these are
inspired by one's predestined other
self. It may be just a case of being
lonely, or being flattered, or being
sorry for somebody. It's highly j
important, but sometimes far from i
easy, to be able to determine
whether one's deliciously terrible
malady is love or near love.
A nineteen-year-old girl who
wants help in diagnosing her own
case has written me an uncom
monly sincere and Interesting let -
| ter. She asks:
| "What is Love? I know it is a
| hard question to answer but I have
, never been able to discover it.
Sometimes I think I love one young
! man, who is a travelling salesman,
but very quiet, and after he is away
I for several weeks I don't miss him.
| Then when he is home I wonder
i what is wrong with me, for I feel
that. I could never let him go away
| "I suppose I am too young to
! know what it is. But so many of
I my girl friends are getting married
j now and their husbands leaving for
'Over There,' and how ao they
j know what love is on short nc
j quaintance? I know this roan for
! many years, and he says, too, that
: when he is away the first couple of
I weeks he misses me terribly, but it
| wears off gradually anu ineu when
j lie is homb he doesn't see how he
i could go away again. Is this the
j selfish part of humanity or is it
so with every one."
To me, it doesn't seem a mysteri
ous pase, that of this extremely nice ■
young girl and her "quiet." lover. 1
They are more or less alike in tem

friends, and their friendship isn't

the test.
Separation the Test.
There can't be a better test than i
separation. And it's a test that the |
love of these young people doesn't
stand. With the most friendly and
wholesome frankness they admit it
to each other.
For a few weeks they are lonely,
even painfully so. The pleasant
habits of companionship have neen
Interrupted, a familiar friendly
presence is lacking.
But. as the days pass the gap
steadily closes. In a month each of

The reason is, of course, that

that love doesn't recognize.
The quiet, happy friendship that
"Inquisitive" describes lacks the
touch of magic that would convert
it into love.
For the most prosy, "practical"

facility when they fall in love. They
develop imagination. While love
lasts, they are not only the sub

are themselves wizards. Space and
time, light and darkness, Autumn
and Spring, no longer exist for
them. They live within a rainbow

[except the Chosen One.
The Chosen One, they are, liow
-1 ever, vividly conscious of, even if
he or she is a thousand miles away,
and remains there for months or
years at a time. That's one of the
magic gifts of love.
And this consciousness of the ab
sent lover doesn't "wear off gradu
ally." It becomes fiercer and more
intense. It gives lovers extraordi
nary experiences. It drives them to
extraordinary actions. They cross
worlds to look upon each other's
faces. They write poems that live
for centuries. They are quite likely
to be looked upon as madmen. And
all because they are in the driving
grasp of love.
You will see from this that love
isn't a pretty plaything, but a dis
l turbing, tormenting force. "In
j quisitive" would scarcely be the
I tranquil and contented girl she is

that many people—of whom I don't

plete long and happy lives without
ever knowing anything more wild
and sweet and dangerous than
near-love. Perhaps this may prove
to be the case with some of the
young girls this letter refers to,
who marry after an acquaintance so
brief that it hardly seems as if real
love could have had time fo take
j root.
But they are the people who
never concern themselves as to
whether their love is real or merely
a cheerful imitation. And it may
be that for them, as for most of us,
something less than the tumultuous
ecstasy of real love is as much as
can be managed.
For that's another test of real
love, by the way. Tt's not easily
managed. Indeed, unless you are
generously equipped with charac
