Whether it was to go into the city

A CLOSE VIEW OF THE KAISER
An American correspondent who
has been with the German armies and
seen the kaiser at close range since
the war began, testifies in the New
York Tribune to the absolute sincer sincerity
ity sincerity of the war lord. If he were a hyp hypocrite
ocrite hypocrite he would be more easily dealt
with, but-he believes in himself and
his star as much as Mahomet. He is
convinced that God fights with him,
and therefore that he cannot be de
feated. It is difficult for us to be believe
lieve believe that the kaiser is not uttering
blasphemies when he calls upon the
Supreme Being to bless his arms and
give him victories; "but the kaiser is
not a pretender, we are told. Of
course, he cannot believe that he was
forced into the war; he cannot be be-lievethat
lievethat be-lievethat he was the victim of Bel Belgium
gium Belgium ; but he does believe that it is
his great destiny and that of the
German people to teach the world a
lesson it will never forget, that the
spread of German kultur will make a
sick earth whole again.
.Certainly he has changed in some
ways since the beginning of the war.
He is not the bombastic egotist of
1911. It is not too much to assume
that he profoundly, regrets the war,
especially since his illustions about a
swift victory have been dispelled. Te
has seen too much of the" suffering of
soldiers to exult in war for its own
sake, for the kaiser has seen his
troops, go into action, and he has seen
what remained of them come out of
action. He has seen huge piles of his
dead covered wifh "gasoline and turn
ed into a funeral pyre. His face, not
unnaturally, is set and stern, and
brightens only momentarily at the
news of another German victory. His
hair has become greyer than former
ly, buthis general health is said to be
good, save for the throat affection
that carried off his father and grand
father, and which threatened him
some time ago. An operation, how however,
ever, however, alleviated his suffering if it did
not eradicate the disease. He lives
hardily, riding for hours : on end,
sleeping only a few hours, and rising

erals the plans for the day.
For all his fanatical belief that he
is the weapon chosen of-God, he is
rather fussy about precautions for his
own safety. He is never so guarded as
when at the front, and the front for
him means, perhaps, a chateau 20
miles behind the lines. At a French
chateau where the correspondent saw
him, the kaiser slept literally in the
heart of a small army. Mounted sen
tries patrolled every foot of the
ground outside the chateau walls
Upon the walls others walked, and in inside
side inside row after row of sentries. In the
house itself secret service men arm armed
ed armed to the teeth prowled silently. The
whole place was fortified as though
expecting an assault. Especially was
there a wealth of sandbags, wire net
ting and other materials to absorb
the fragments of bombs that might
be dropped, bearchlights pierced the
sky. The finest aviators in the army
flew overhead. Anti-aircraft guns
were charged and sninners stood at
them all night, in readiness for a visit
from a possible enemy flyinc man.
But all these precautions did not
save the kaiser from danger on the
eastern front on two occasions. At
one time in the early days of the war
when he had gone to the east to view
a German victory he was nearly cut
on Dy a Cossack patrol aloner the Nie
men river. Again he and Hindenfrurg
were riding in a motor near the fort
ress of Kovna when the-Russian ar
tillery got the range of his car, and
he raced for his life against the
shells. At Soissons it is reported that
he mounted a hilltop to get a better
view oi a battle, and had the exper
lence of hearing shrapnel whistline
about his ears. The reason the kaiser
takes these chances which would be
forbidden, for instance, to the king of

WIN NOW OR PREPARE
FOR MORE WAR
The whole world a series of armed
camps, preparing for another fray
and compelled to adopt German
methods of warfare this picture of
the result of a drawn battle, a stale
mate, with Germany m her present
state of mind, was presented last
night by Dr. A. Lawrence Lowell,
president of Harvard University, and
chairman of the executive committee
of the League to Enforce Peace, in
his address at the annual dinner of
the National Safety Council in New
He declared that with the fall of
military autocracy must be removed
the oppression of one race by another,
and for that reason we cannot con
sider the return to Germany of her
former colonies, that their people
may be exploited as they have been
in the past. Americans have no love
for the rule of the inferior, by the
more civilized races; and if at the
present stage of history that is un un-pvoidabie,
pvoidabie, un-pvoidabie, it must be done with due
regard to the welfare of the subject
race, and we cannot be a party to any anything
thing anything else."
"Can anyone contemplate without
horror," said 'Dr. Lowell, "a planet
whose inhabitants devote their efforts
to devising scientific processes for
making it unfit for human habita habitation?
tion? habitation? Yet such is the result that we
must at least contemplate if the
present war should decide nothing,
leaving the belligerents with their
former ambitions and principles, with
fiercer hatreds ancLa beter knowledge
of what the next war will signify.
"If, on the other hand, the side on
which we are fighting wins, it may
mean a better world, reorganized on
a basis of justice and peace; and
much of the result may depend upon
us, both in the field and at the coun council
cil council table.
"Let its be perfectly clear in our
own .minds. We proclaim that we are
fighting for democracy, but President
Wilson has put it : more accurately
when he said that we are at war, to
make the world safe for democracy.
We are not fighting to impose any
form of government upon an unwilling
people. That would be contrary to
our principles of political liberty. If
auy people prefer to be ruled by a
monarch it is their affair, provided
they mind their own business, leave
other nations alone and live peace peaceably
ably peaceably with their neighbors. A mili military
tary military autocracy, that goes forth con conquering
quering conquering and to conquer, the world
must subdue, or it will have no peace.
"We are at war to prevent any na nation
tion nation from imposing an autocratic
military system on the world or on
any people; and when the allies have
succeeded in so doing, they, and any
other peoples that sincerely desire a
better and more peaceful world, must
solemnly resolve that no such catas catastrophe
trophe catastrophe shall occur again. For this
purpose they must not again split
apart into discordant fragments or
hostile groups, but must combine to
police the world, and bring in a reign
of international justice among men.
We often boast that we are both an
idealistic and a practical people, and
in the reorganization that will follow

"THE SPOILED CHILD j
OF THE WORLD"? j
A war department bureaucrat with I
a Teuton name was chatting the I
other day. Speaking for himself, he
said: "France is the spoiled child of!
the world. She has lost Alsace-Lor- I
raine, and honestly thinks that all
the rest of the world ought to strive
and suffer so that she may have her ;
lost provinces back again." j
France lost Alsace-Lorraine as a re-
suit of the Franco-Prussian war in
1871. The people of those provinces j
refused to be annexed to Germany; j
their legislative representatives in-'
sisted that they were, and would
stay, French; and when new elections
were held under Prussian auspices the
vote was once again overwhelmingly
against ratifying annexation to the
enemy country. That is ancient his history.

Alsace-Lorraine does not, however,

Warning Before Command.
In bringing up my children I found
that at night when they were tired
they were spared many tears by being
warned before I gave them a strict
command. Instead of saying "'ow it
is time to go to bed. Put away your
blocks at once," I would say: "It is
nearly time to sro to bed. Finish vour
house first and then put away, your
blocks." In this way the children were
fully prepared to go, and there was
consequently no begging and no temp
tation for me to show my lack of firm
ness by being persuaded to allow them
to build "Just one more house."

AN OVERWORKED WORD.
Thie Writer Suggests That "Very
Given a Lonq Rest.
There is a word that once possessed
a vigor and a power that Is altogether
lost, "'Verily, verily" "in truth, hi
truth." Now it is "very," and, though
it still me,ans "in truth," It has become
so weakened by usage that it conveys
no force whatever.
You meet men on the street, and say.
"It is a very fine day." What do you
mean? Probaby you mean, "How do
you do?" What you have said Is sim simply
ply simply a salutation. But If you should
say to me, "It is a fine day." you prob
ably mean it is a fine day. That little
word "very" has been so weakened, so
frayed at the edges, that it harms
rather than helps its companions.
So, gentle reader, I would say to you
if I had arbitrary power over your
speech, "This week I will allow you
only two 'veries,' and, though for a
.time such restraint may make you self
conscious, yet it will force you to grope
about for musty treasures in the store storehouse

old adjectives and adverbs, even drive
you now and again to a careful ap
praisal of your best slang, and when
this temporary self consciousness shall
pass not only your vigor of speech, but
your exactitude and clarity of thought
will be the better for it. That is a gain
that will Ie worth all the sacrifice.
