There was a great disposition in
America, when 'the war began, to
blame it on the emperor of Germany
and to represent him as forcing it on
his unwilling people. As the war
goes on, it begins to appear that this

opinion was erroneous. We doubt
that any people have ever been so

united on this question as the Ger Germans
mans Germans or so staunch in the belief of
the justice of their cause. Not only
is -this spirit displayed at home tout

among Germans who have been cit

izens of the IJnited States for many

years. One noticeable thing about

Washington, Aug. 25. As Jap Jap-n

in order to insure the safety arid

even the action of the Pacific cable.

Midway, a low group of sandy islets,

is indefensible. Its -harbor is no

more than a cove accessible only to
schooners of the lightest navigable

that it affords 'a speck 'of land on

There is reason to helieve that Mid Midway

The 'Marshall Islands, in two
chains known as "Radak and Rallk,

lie midway between Hawaii and
Guam, but somewhat south of the
most direct line of travel. They are
lagoon islands, the navigation is
dangerous, and the only point which
might serve as a bare rendezvous of
a fleet is the lagoon of Jaluit.
The Ladrone Islands extend north northward

Habit may be either a strong help
past peril, or a fetter that holds its
victim helpless. Some young people
never consider -habit forming at all;
It is not taken into account in their
lives. They form none but accidental
and unconscious ones. If asked what
their fixed habits are. they will laugh
at the question. They know so little
about it that they think they could
change any habit they have in a day.
Yet in reality they are binding them themselves
selves themselves in chains of iron and making a

Question that Will Probably be De

cided in the Impending Battle
in the North Sea
London, Aug. 25. What has been
going on in the North Sea? That is
the greatest mystery of the war, the
problem most difficult to solve. It is

now over three weeks since the an announcement
nouncement announcement was .made that the iEng iEng-lish
lish iEng-lish fleet had left Portsmouth under
sealed orders to meet the German
fleet. The impenetrable veil of the
censor, sitting here in London and
controlling the enemy's news as well
as his own, was lifted for the 'bare

statement. Then it -dropped again
and nothing authentic has since been
heard of the men-o'-war in the North
Sea. The outside world cannot

pierce the veil. There are no corres corres-nondents
nondents corres-nondents aboard the warships of

either England or Germany in the

North Sea to send, back even cen

sored dispatches.

Of the fighting on land, the pub

lic hears something. At the start

there were correspondents in Bel

gium and every day news more or
less authentic, of the fighting in Bel

gium and Alsace and Lorraine has

been published. rBut of the naval

doings in the .North Sea, not a word.

At first there were stories of a great
battle. Heavy firing was said to

nave (been heard at sea off various

British coast towns. One story said

that a German Zeppelin with bombs

had destroyed a British warship ev

ery night. But all of these reports

were effectively denied. It is a fact

that the world 'has learned nothing

from the (North Sea since the Eng

lish and German fleets put to sea

there. Has there been a 'battle?

It seems reasonable, if the Ger

mans nad met with actual reverses

upon the sea, that the British censor

would be ready and willing to pub

lish them. On the other hand, if

the Germans have had successes, the

London censor would 'hardly be ex

pected to. advertise them, 'but the

fact would surely have ibeen given

our in Berlin and have reached the

world 'by this time.

The two fleets now in the Svorth

Sea are, in their intricacy of con

struction and their death-dealing

facilities, the finest product of all

ages of maritime warfare, which Is

as old as the sea and as old as man

kind.

These fleets are to fight the most

important battle of the war, for the

supremacy of the sea is perhaps the

greatest prize of the great conflict

(England -has held the leadership of

the ocean. Germany wants it, Ger

many is fighting to control the bal

ance of power of 'Europe and to con

trol the colonies of the world. If

she would command the land, Ger

many must control the sea.

So it is that a vital, if not the

most vital issue of the great war,
hangs on the outcome of affairs in

the iXorth Sea and that is one thing

about which the public has not the
slightest inkling. Everything is fair
in love and war, the old adage has
it. Love is always with the world.
There are daily reminders of its ex ex-existence,
existence, ex-existence, 'but the world is non non-learning
learning non-learning again that all Is fair in war,
also.
It was three hundred years, ago
that Francis Bacon told the English,

i. i tr i licit Luuiaiauo uic -tu 10 u t
great liberty and may take as much
or as little of war as he will, where whereas
as whereas those that are strongest by land,
are, nevertheless, often in difficulties."

TRYING TO CAPTURE

Although Making War at Tremend Tremendous

London, Aug. 25. Germany's

The vastness of Germany's ex exports

England is already after her share."
The United States, too, probably has

bride came in the front door of the

was more dressed up than we have
ever saw him.
S'he walked up the isle with ber
head down and she had on some kind
of a White dress and a white vale
which was so thin that everybody
could see right through it, and it
was probably wore more for a orna ornament
ment ornament than for use, and it was also a
sight bigger than was necessary.
The organist was playing a tune
that goes like this -turn, turn, te,
turn.
The preacher and the groom and
the best man come out of the -preacb-esr's
study to the right of tbe church.
They must have been there all the
time because there is not but one
door to that room unless they dumb
throught the window. They was
dressed up like fellows in a story,
