Paris, Nov. 1.
In Europe the further one goes
back from the German trenches the
more frequently he meets the word
"Hun." Amdng English speaking
soldiers the German soldier is called
"Fritzie," and among the French he is
known as the "Boche." In spite of
the fact that during the last six
months or a year a gradually grow growing
ing growing distaste has been manifest to take
.the .German prisoner at all, there
really is no keen feeling of hatred
among the armies of the Allies to toward
ward toward the German soldier. "Fritzie"
and the "Boche" are not terms of ap ap-probrium.

my Tommy is such an amiable chap that fre frequently

trenches, just as he is given his post postgraduate

a hate sermon, recounting the dread dreadful

keep the English soldier on his toes
in the fight. No such sermon is need needed
ed needed for the French, nor for the Canad Canadians,
ians, Canadians, nor the Australians, nor for the
New Zealanders. They have their
own private grievances.
The Canadians have seen their own
men crucified. One hesitates to believe
this. But men of undoubted veracity
vouch for the story. It is not true that
the Canadian prisoners were crucified
and lifted over the trenches on their
crosses. But no-one, who talks per personally
sonally personally to the scores of living men
who have seen the spectacle can doubt
them when they declare that they
came upon two or .their comrades
nailed to opposite sides of a double
barn door in Northern France, after
a German retreat, and that one pool

Convincing Testimony
Nor can one question the veracity
of the French doctor who declares he
saw this during the early days of the
war: A German troop with a machine
gun battery occupied one end of a
street in a French village. The houses
rising from tne narrow street were
stone houses, and to dislodge the ma machine
chine machine guns it would be necessary to
charge down a stone canyon. The bat battery

a division of infantry or cavalry,
without heavy artillery. The Germans
held the lines approaching the town.
The only way to them was -down the
stoie canyon to certain death. The
French came up, saw the machine
guns and stopped. The Germans ban bantered

reinforcements. But to get the French
to charge upon the machine guns the
Germans went into the houses behind

while the attendance will hardly
reach its high water mark of last
year, there is reason to believe that
the crowd this afternoon will be near nearly
ly nearly as large. j
AMUSEMENTS
There was a fair-sized crowd on
the midway last night, and there will
J probably be two or three times as
many tonight. The shows are very
good ones and furnish the people
who see them with lots of fun. Thb

people, so it is up to all hands to be
goodhumored and remember it's all
for the country.
FINE FIREWORKS
A great feature of the fair is the
magnificent fireworks every evening.
They were good Tuesday, better last
night and will likely be best tonight.
They will go, up tonight at 7:45, so
go out early.

crisis Germany reasons thus: Ger German
man German civilization is not merely the
greatest civilization in the world, it
is the only civilization in the world.
The second proposition is that to
spread that civilization in the world
is the chief end of man; to deny it, to
oppose it, to question the shining su superiority
periority superiority of another civilization, to
hold that another civilization is even
tolerable, is a moral infraction which
deserves extermination. Keep the
fact always in mind that this is not
the kaiser's cult alone, that this is not
the creed exclusively of the military
feudalism of the Junker class, but
that this doctrine is the mainspring
which has held Germany together for
three years of bitter hardship; has
made Germany walk through death at
Verdun, behind the stupid crown
price, smiling; has made Germany
send the best she breeds to the
shambles without wincing; has made
Germany stalk unquestioning through
famine which is cutting off the old
people in winrows as a scythe and is
withering the babies like a plague.
Monumental conceit for German
civilization and a moral sense blunt blunted
ed blunted to accept any deed which would
seem to help that civilization, these
are the keys to the interior situation
in Germany. They unlock the Ger German

one young soldier, an entire stranger
to our people, was the only man lost.

now but for us to buckle down to the

WHY WE GIVE THANKS
Once a year the governor of each
state issues a proclamation calling
our attention to Thanksgiving Day.
He calls on the people of the state
to give thanks for their deliverance
from evil.
Sometimes the proclamation ap appears
pears appears in the same issue of the paper
that records the fact that the gover governor
nor governor was beaten for re-election by
228,000.
Thanksgiving is the only holiday of
the year that has to be called to our
attention.
.There's a reason:
At Christmas we get silk ties, and
cigars, and work baskets, and other
things;
Fourth of July we have free balloon
ascensions and free; band concerts;
Labor Day we get a day off.
But Thanksgiving we are expected
to give something.
So they have to issue a proclama proclamation.

THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS
(Judge)
Thanksgiving was patented by the
football teams, but it was invented by
the Pi1 grim Fathers. The Pilgrims
had a ijt to be thankful for especial especially
ly especially after the Indian hit the White
Brother's firewater until he could no
longer hit. the White Brother's head.
There was the young chief who essay essayed
ed essayed to pot the Pilgrim Father with his
tomahawk, but failed, as so many of
us do with our ails in life, and nailed
instead the Venus de Milo on the Pil Pilgrim
grim Pilgrim whatnot. "Father," exclaimed
the Indian youth, while the Spartan
fox leisurely devoured his vitals
"Father, I -cannot tell a lie I did it
with my little hatchet!" Now while
this story rests on the authority of as
capable liars as ever wrote a history,
we suspect that the Indian boy stole it
from the hen that laid Columbus' egg;
the hen which, being asked by the
Dominican rooster that crowed and
saved Rome, "who discovered Amer America?"
ica?" America?" replied: "I did it with my lttle
hatchet!" Or maybe he stole it from
William Tell, who when they put the
apple on his boy's hat the hat being
on the boy's head, incidentally and
ordered him to shoot it off, triumph triumphantly
antly triumphantly exclaimed: "He has his little hat
yet!" Some writers have asserted
that Captain John Smith invented the
"did it with my little hatchet," just
after he erased old King Powhatan
from the map with his timely toma tomahawk
hawk tomahawk just in time to save the pulch pulch-ritudinous
ritudinous pulch-ritudinous Pochontas. Captain John
Smith certainly invented it if he
thought of it. Captain John Smith
ought to be thankful to the king of
Denmark, for he would have invented
Doc Cook if the king of Denmark
hadn't beaten him to it.
In later years the Indians became
wards of the nation, but in Pilgrim
times they had hard work to persuade
enough Indians to come in to make a
comfortable-sized election district.
Those that did come in were doubtful
wards, and while spell-binding might
marry some of the Indian wards, the
shutter was better. The Pilgrim
Fathers were thankful, too, that as
they lived before the days of Mrs.
Felicia Hemans, they didn't have to
hear the boys and girls at the school
entertainment recite those familiar
lines beginning ::The waking braves
dashed high on a stern and rockbound
coast." Mrs. Hemans must have got
into her head that the braves attacked
from the ocean side, and that a stern
and rockbound coast is a reliable sub substitute
stitute substitute for a coaster brake on a run runaway
away runaway red chief full of good old red
eye.
We in our time have things to be
thankful for. We knew a man whose
garbage collector think to praise him
applauded him for "havin' swell
swill." Oh. how happy that man's fam family
ily family was, and how proud, when he slew
the connoisseur of garbage before it
got to Mr. Hoover's ear.
Joseph H. Choate used to say that
he admired the Pilgrim Mother be because
cause because she endured all that the Pilgrim
Father endured, and endured the Pil Pilgrim
grim Pilgrim Father, too. As we surround our
Thanksgiving repast of a potato par paring
ing paring garnished with shavings a la
Hoover, let us be thankful that our
Pilgrim Mothers, whatever they bore,
did not have to subsist on a diet of
calories and pretty near food!

consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where an inflam inflammation
mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that "gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.'
Consequently we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking, six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt, to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take ANURIC
(double or triple strength), after each meal and at
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment;
channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two
or three times a night. This is the time you should
consult some physican of wide experience such as
Doctor Pierce of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, in Buffalo, New York. Send him ten
cents for sample of his new discovery, ANURIC.

GERMAN FRIGHTFULNESS

(Continued from First Page)
science did not have a forward squint
into the reaction of frightfulness on
the world. Because the insane vanity
of Germany had ignored the rest of
civilization.
Again let us consider the enslaving
of the Belgians and the inhabitants of
Alsace and Northern France. Ger Germany
many Germany during this month has issued
an official statement admitting the
enslavement of Alsatian girls, but de
nying that more than 9 per cent were
under 17, and explaining that only a
few of them were in the firing zone.
The enslavement of the people of Bel Belgium
gium Belgium and Northern France has been
publicly justified in Germany time
and again as a military necessity. Its
existence has not been denied.
Sad Story of the Repatriots
When one says hundreds of thou thousands
sands thousands of French people, the poor and
the rich, the ignorant andthe culti cultivated
vated cultivated alike, were forcibly torn from
their homes and families in France
and Belgium and taken in slavery to
Germany to work in German fields
and mines and factories, one is not
exaggerating the number. And the
stream of broken humanity coming
through Switzerland every mornng
and evening in the train through Zu Zurich
rich Zurich to Avian, proves what kind of
treatment these slaves have endured.
They are eaten out with the white
plague. The children are covered
with skin diseases that come from
underfeeding, and the curse of the
German slave trade is upon the whole
train.
Two hundred and sixty thousand of
these repatriots, as they are called,
have come into France through
Switzerland by train in the last six
months, and the daily stream today
is as large as it was last June. Yet
it is no wanton cruelty that has or ordered
dered ordered this enslavement of the captur captured
ed captured population. Science tells the Ger German
man German that without work he can live
longer than with work. Therefore it
he can get German work done by the
slaves from the lower civilization of
Belgium and France, which must be
blotted out, and the sooner the better
for the world so much the better oft
is the German, the man favored of
God! More Germans will survive the
war, and naturally fewer of the
French and Belgians and Alsatians,
who have no right to live because
they persist in loving their own civ civilization;.
ilization;. civilization;. German soldiers have re revolted
volted revolted at the awful science when the
slaves were taken. For when a man
or woman goes to slavery he goes to
death! But the German soldiers tak
ing these slaves at the bayonet knew
that their revolt was chicken-hearted.
They knew that the enslavement was
the best thing for the world, so they
prodded mothers with the bayonet
who would shelter their daughters,
and shot protesting fathers who tried S
to hide their sons. But not in anger
were these deeds done! They were
done in cold blood, because mountains
of vanity backed by a materialistic
philosophy justified these bloody
deeds and made them heroic. That is
hwy Germany struck off medals cele celebrating
brating celebrating the sinking of the Lusitania.
Systematic Bombinb of Hospitals
Last summer the Germans began
a systematic and thorough series of
air raids on the base hospitals of the
Allies. Every moonlight night the
"Boche" came over and dropped
bombs on the hospitals, killing scores
and scores of doctors and nurses and
killing hundreds of wounded soldiers
some of whom were Germans. At
Vadlincourt the Boche came early in
the evening and dropped his first
bomb. A German airman taken pris-
oner the day before died of fright
when the first bomb came, for he
knew what to expect. An hour later
they came again, dropping more
bombs some of them being incen incendiary
diary incendiary bombs. Soon the hospital was
ablaze. Again the Boche came and
dropped more bombs, and again, un
til 3 o'clock in the morning. Then he
dropped a lot of handbills warning j
the Allies if they did not want their
hospitals bombed to move them fur-!
them from the trenches.
The Vadincourt hospital was then
about seven or eight miles from the
front. That hospital was about 500
feet square, built around a compound
and inside the compound was a great
Red Cross about 90 feet square made
of red canvas and whitewashed stone.
Also each wing of the hospital carried
on it a painted red cross 50 feet square
All the other bombed hospitals were
similarly equipped. But this hospit hospital
al hospital was the most clearly designated ot
all. The Germans desired to take the
most clearly designated, so that there
could be no mistaking their intention.
I Of course, no one before the German
raid on hospitals had dreamed of
equipping hospitals with anti-aircraft
guns, so the Germans flew low, drop dropped
ped dropped accurately and had their own
way
But it was not wanton cruelty thai
inspired the deed. Too many men had
been coming back to the firing lines
of the allies after suffering from Ger German
man German wounds. These men were coming
back because the hospitals were near
the firing line, and in three hours
or so the average wounded man had
been treated for gangrene, which is
the one deadly plague of the wound wounded
ed wounded in this war being quickly treated
for gangrene it did not develop nor
was a serious amputation needed, and
soon the soldier was back in the line,
fit as a fiddle. That meant that Ger
man powder and shot were being
wasted because of allied hospital effi efficiency.

materialistic philosophy that might

for such sentimental reasons.
Prisoners Attempt to Kill Doctors
During recent months reports have
been coming in rather regularly that
German officers always officers,
mind you have been killing doctors

who were attending these German of
ficers after they were taken prisoners.
One instance may be verified. At
Base Hospital No. 12 the Cleveland
unit, then under the British service
a doctor came in one night during
the early part of -September with a
wounded hand. He explained that
the stretcher bearers were busy bring bringing
ing bringing in the wounded after the lines had
moved across a German trench, and
that the doctor felt that in the name
of humanity he should go out in the
captured trenches and help to bring
in the wounded. Of course most of the
wounded were English. But a few
Germans were there. He found a
German officer, wounded in the leg.
The doctor helped the German officer
to his feet and was half earring him,
half supporting him as they walked
back to the first casualty station.
They were talking when for some rea reason
son reason as the conversation stopped, the
doctor looked up and saw the Ger German's
man's German's pistol at the doctor's head. He
threw up his hand and knocked the
gun away just as the German fired.
But the ball went through the doc-
(tor's hand. The night before in the
same secror a merman oincer on a
stretcher had tried to kill a doctor
with a knife who was bending over a
patient dressing his wound.
The American ambulance drivers
tell of scores of similar attempts ot
the German officers to kill doctors
and nurses. Now that seems savage
and senseless. But when you remem remember
ber remember that every time a doctor or a
nurse is killed a hundred men must
suffer, it has its scientific reason.
Moreover, the bdmbing of the hos hospitals
pitals hospitals by the airmen had a fine re reaction
action reaction from a German viewpoint.
During the moonlight nights when
the Germans were coming to bomb
the hospitals the nurses in base hos hospitals
pitals hospitals from Ostend to the Alps could
not sleep. Their work suffered in
the daytime. The nurses had to be
replaced by fresh nurses oftener and
oftener, and the whole hospital serv service
ice service was more or less disorganized.
The result was easily foreseen by the
Germans.
But they did not foresee the splen splendid

into the hearts of the allied soldiers.
The German always discounts the

civilization as that of his enemies
can produce anything but cowards

enemies by German scientific conduct

Air Raids as "Military Science"
The air raids over London were
not planned and executed by a cruel
people, but by a scientific national
mind. These raids were sent to keep
an English army on English soil and
out of France, and also to keep Eng English
lish English fighting planes out of Flanders.
To keep English soldiers and English
planes at home makes it that much

lay red-roofed and gay in a snug lit little

from the firing line, contained sad lit little
tle little piles of household goods. It was
an evacuation of the population. We
asked why "The Germans have be begun

from their big guns far back of the
lines." This was the answer. Why

not know. They had no hope of tak taking

How Different the Italian View
Five days later the same Kansas
pilgrims were standing on the Ital Italian
ian Italian Alps overlooking the prettiest lit little
tle little Austrian town you ever saw. It
was 5000 feet below the Italian lines,
and they could have wiped it out
merely by throwing stones into it.
iTheir guns, poor as the Italian guns
were, could have blistered that little
Austrian town in 10 minutes. Across
the gulch, 5000 feet above the town,
were the Austrian trenches. And the

Italians were slamming them with
such artillery as they had. "You
could smash that little town easily,"
observed the Kansas man.
"Oh, yes but why? It's a beau beautiful
tiful beautiful little town. Why destroy it?"
Their theory was of course that if
they captured the Austrian trenches
the town would go with the trenches
and they would want the inhabitants
of the little town as Italians, and to
have them as Italian subjects they
would be easier to handle if they
loved and respected Italy. And also
they reasoned: If we don't take the
