- The news dispatches Indicate that j
the deportation and forced labor of
Belgians still continue. In a dispatch
from Havre (New York Evening Post;
September 13. 1917) It Is stated : "The
removal of the civilian population of
Belgium continues, according to ad advices
vices advices received here. The town of Bou Bou-lers,

line ia Flanders, has been evacuated
completely. Ostend is being emptied
gradually, and two thousand persons
already have been sent from Courtrai.
In another dispatch from Havre
(Washington Post, September 21, 1917)
It is stated that "the German military
authorities at Bniges, Belgium, are
conscripting forcibly all the boys and
men of that city between the ages of!
fourteen and sixty to work In munition
factories and shipyards. The rich and
poor, shopkeepers and workmen, all
are being taken, only the school teach teachers,

"Last night a shooting affray took

imakes a scandalous impression.
"It is highly deplorable when officers

be, the senior officer, or when by their

1 "One interesting result of the depor deportations

that once more places In relief the
German capacity for blundering, al almost
most almost as great as the German capacity
for cruelty. Until the deportations
were begun there' was( no intense ha hatred

they and the inmates spoke nearly the

work, the poor and the humble having
none of those hatreds of patriotism
that are among the privileges of the
upper classes.' It is conceivable that
the Flemish population might have
existed under German rule ; It was
Teutonic in its origin and anti-French
always. But now the Germans have
changed all that.
They have dealt a mortal blow to
any prospect they may ever have had
of being tolerated by the population
;of Flanders; in tearing away from
nearly every humble home In the land

hatred that j will never go out ; they
have brought home to every heart in

its horror indelibly on the memory of
three generations, a realization of
what German methods mean, not, as
with the early atrocities. In the heat

What have ye to give, oh, ye men of
the South,
What have ye to
give from the
hot mouth, -And
the last die of history is cast?
When up from your ashes, rise tur turrets
rets turrets and domes,
With grandeur, the world never
dreamed; '
And out of your poverty," vintage and
Where the chill wave of bayonets
gleamed? S
When Truth shall stand asking for
what ye will give,
Born out of your glory your pain,
With Fame's note to clarion the deeds
, that shall live, ...
Whose like shall be never again!
What have ye to give, oh, ye sons ot
the land,
r Of heritage noble and true,
When she shall stand waiting, with
uplifted hand,
And Fame shall come asking of
( you? .
When the voice of a Southron shall
open each door,
And his name bear a charm that is
- known; -.
When the fame of a Southron shall
live in the lore
That the world treasures up as its
. own? j ;- r i t. A- -:" ..
By the bones of brave sires who died
; for the right, :' '
That Liberty's seed corn might
. : live, ' ."-. '- .- 1
By sword and escutcheon left spotless
and bright,
What have yet, oh, Southrons, to
V- give? ::
The aegis of history gleams like a
.star, -. . -'
And silvers the sandals of Fame;
The mantle of prophecy floateth afar.
While Truth calls a warrior's name;
That name shall ye give, oh, ye sons
of the South,
To Fame .and to Truth from the
' past; .; .-V'-
Your measure' of valor, set high in
the drought
That war and privation had cast.
For deep in the white light of cen censure
sure censure or praise,
He taught the whole world what
was meet; ?
The grandeur of sorrow that lifts as
it flays,
The victory born in defatl
Kow they loved him! ah, God! it was
glory enough :
To follow the path where he led;
To triumph by steeps that were
( bloody and rough,
' Or to trenches heaped high with
.' the dead. :
And this be your gift, oh, ye sons of
her heart, 1
The pure golden heart of our land;
A heritage priceless, that will not da da-part,
part, da-part,
A largess that came from his hand.
The marbles ye raise may to atoms
be ground.

But while life shall love valor .or
, heroes be crowned,
Men will honor the knighthood of

Average Person Seems to Get Badly
Flustered When Talking to
Lawyer or Detective.
"And after the choking--' prompted
the lawyer, who represented the
-plaintiff In a. recent trial for assault.
"Oh, there wasn't any choking that
I saw," said the witness.
"No choking? But didn't you tell
the officer that the accused sprang
upon his -victim from behind and
seized him by the throat?"
"Yes, sir, surely But there wasn't
any. choking. He Just squeezed him
till he couldn't breathe.?
"Well, wasn't that choking. I'd like
to know?"
"When a body chokes, he coughs till
he spits It out," explained the witness,
"but the old man didn't have any anything
thing anything In his mouth, and he didn't
cough, so he didn't choke. He was
squeezed till the life was most squoz,e
out of him,' that's alL"

William J.. Burns, the famous detec detective,

simple, lucid Information to a lawyer
or detective. He gives as an exam example
ple example the office boy who was asked, "Did
Mr. Jones or his partner usually reach
the office first?"1 v (
"Well," said the boy eagerly, blush blushing
ing blushing jmd stammering with excitement.
"Mr. Jones at first was always' last,
but later he began to get earlier, till
at last he was first, although before
he had always been behind. He soon
got later again, although of late he
has been sooner, and at last he got
behind as before. But I guess he'll be
getting" earlier sooner or later."

When Judy expressed admiration for

immediately experienced a vague feel feeling
ing feeling of impending trouble.
I mos forgot dat'yaller Sallie is
on de back porch waitin to see yer."
"Which yeUow Sallie?" .;
Yellow Sallies are as plentiful on an
Arkansas plantation as roses in June.
;"Dat hyfluttn nigger what calls her herself
self herself Sadie." With a snort of contempt
and a high head she trudged off to the
kitchen humming: "De fire will ketch
you sinner, run."'
"Good mornin. Miss Lena, said a
neat looking yellow girL as I came
down the back veranda. "Miss Lena,
I'se In a little trubble an I wants you
to help me outen it. Tse named Sadie,'
an' I helps Liza wid yo clo'es eve'y
"Very well, Sadie, what Is the nature
of your trouble?" I felt no surprise
at the request, as I had held the office
of peace restorer for the plantation
-during the ten years of my happy mar married
ried married life.
"Ole Judy's at de bottom uv It,"
glancing Indignantly at the open kitch kitchen
en kitchen door; "dey call her a mournin' shep shep-ard,
ard, shep-ard, a pillar of de church, but I calls
her a: straight out old hatian, I does,
an' if she warn't ole 'noush to be my
mammy Td play a chune on her neck."
Sadie's anger was evidently growing
as she prepared to relate her woes, and
as I heard an ominous snort from the
kithen T thought It advisable to have
the story quickly and be done with It.
"It's dls way, Miss Lena," resumed
Sadie. "Eve'y body knows me an
Manuel has been fixln' to get mah'd for
some two years; but since he has been
wurkin' round de house here and un under
der under de 'fluences of dat old hatian, his

So Liza, she-tips an says he been con conjured,

I tried not to blieve her, but 'fore

Jes got a thinkin it an warn't hardly

"Well, Sadie," said L a new light
dawning on me, "since you love "Man "Manuel

you put pretty fixings In his house?
You -are younger and better looking

'Yes, I knows, Miss Lena, but I Isn't

me er old tidy Td put It on bis chear
and try It." -
I signaled'my willingness.
'While yon'se in de house, please
ma'am, gimme a little harts-horn for
Liza's haid."
I begun to search for old finery,
dreaming the while of helping Sadie to
beat Judy at her own game, thereby
smoothing the course of true love.
Gathering up the "find" and the am ammonia
monia ammonia bottle, I went back to the ve veranda
randa veranda to discover a living moving mass
on the floor, composed of kicking feet,
bobbing heads and flying hands.
Sadie hoisted the white flag with a
shriek. Judy, the ancient, arose wind winded,
ed, winded, but triumphant and silently re resumed
sumed resumed her daily avocation as If noth nothing
ing nothing outof the ordinary had happened.
Thf crestfallen Sadie took the things
I handed her and disappeared.
The next morning "the mistress was'

the midday meal in walked Sadie, smil smiling
ing smiling nd happy.
"You Jes' go to de hous. Miss Lena,"
she said, "I'll finish de dinner. De
mournin' shepard won't be here no,
she won't be here soon."
Sadie laxfghed mysteriously. "Last j
