EXCELLENT ENTERTAINMENT
The homemade play at the Temple
last night was a mighty good one, and
furnished two hours' unmitigated fun
for a large number of people. Little
Frances Gary made an ideal queen,
and her right and left supporters (as
a lodge man would say), Frances
Lummus and Caroline Peyser, were
two Easter lily-girls. Elizabeth
Wetherbee, the herald, surely was a
handsome boy, and, Edith Edwards
was one of the prettiest Miss Columi
bias that ever inspired patriotism.
We tried to obtain the names of the
little Yankee Doodles, Fan Fairies and
Rose Maidens, but nobody had thought
to make a list of them. So here's to
let their poppers and mommeife know
that in the opinion of this scribe the
kiddoes had Neil O'Brien's minstrels
and "My Soldier Girls" tied to a post;
even their mistakes and the cute way
they corrected them were the best
of fun to see.
There was some fine music during
the intermission, Mrs. L. G. Ketch Ketch-um

and Mr. Lester Lucas accompanied by
Mr. George Martin, treated the au audience

The "Piper's Pay," was a most en entertaining

Misses Adela Ax, Doris Murray and

SCOUT ACTIVITIES
The Boy Scouts have been doing
many things lately, and have many
more, more important, in the near fu future
ture future to do.
They have been of valuable assist assistance
ance assistance to the Red Cross, by gathering
up the donations of clothes for the
destitute Belgians, and have kindly
lent the ladies their portion of the
armory in which to pack them.
Under the able direction of Assist Assistant
ant Assistant Scoutmaster Hansel Leavengood,
the boys have taken up military drill
and are very enthusiastic over( it.
The drill master feels very much
elated with the success with which he
has met so far. To see these manly
khaki-clad fellows drilling "keeps
the homes fires burning" in the yearn yearning
ing yearning hearts of those left behind, and
brings back fond recollections of the
times when our dear Co. A used to
drill around the public square.
Another thing that the boys have
taken upon themselves lately is the
scout garden. The Taylor brothers
have kindly loaned them the use of a
piece of ground near theold Seaboard
depot. Thither Saturday morning,
went Assistant Scoutmaster Patsey
Gillen and about a dozen of the
scouts, each shouldering a hoe, rake
or pitchfork. They cleaned out most
of the weeds and rocks in a few
hours. This piece of ground they will
have 'plowed the first possible chance
this week and they hope to have it
planted by the end of the week. This
piece of ground will be divided into
six equal parts, one for each patrol,
and some suitable prize will be given
the patrol that makes and turns in
the most to the treasury in a stipu
lated length of time.
This i organization is continually
growing in numbers and in favor in
and around Ocala. Among the en en-rollmen
rollmen en-rollmen of troop 1 are four boys from
Anthony, who attend most of the
meetings. Mr. H. A. Davies has been
interested in the movement and will
probably fill Mr. J. D. MacDonald's
place when he leaves for Ohio the lat latter
ter latter part of the month. It will be a
great loss to Troop 1 to be deprived
of Mr. MacDonald's leadership, but
they are also very fortunate in get getting
ting getting such a man as Mr. Davies to fill
his place.
The scouts hold their meetings
every Friday night at the armory and
at nearly every meeting there are
several applications received. At the
last meeting there were about half a

less good from the system than any
otner state. Loans, it appears, are
based entirely on the erain ernwino
value of the land, no other crops be
ing considered. Hence, Florida lands
that might produce several hundred
dollars' worth of truck, or a thou
sand dollars' worth of citrus fruit per
acre, would only be considered in the
light of their grain-yielding capacity,
wnen estimating the amount of a
loan to be made on them. The system
doubtless will be of great benefit to
farmers generally, but it doesn't seem
to promise much to the Florida
growers, as the amount the farm loan
banks will advance is usually out of
an proportion to the value of the
land, and too small to be considered.

'FOR GOD'S SAKE, HURRY UP'
(Manufacturers' Record)
If a brute had attacked your wife

If such a fiend wanted to discuss
peace terms with you while still at attacking

gave you, to throttle the beast, or
would you parley back and forth and
suggest that the matter might be
settled on some basis which left the
rapist and murderer unpunished and
free to take all the loot of which he
could rob your house?
On the battlefields of Europe oui
loved ones are being murdered for
remember Germany's war is a definite
war of murder and outrage and ev every
ery every electric spark which sweeps
across the Atlantic from the trenches
in France will bring an ever-increasing
list of these murdered men who
have gone out to save us from the at attack
tack attack of the murderer and the rapist.
Our Allies, who for nearly four
years, with superb heroism and at a
fearful cost of men and money, have
stood between us and hell, are calling
to us, "For God's sake, hurry up," ere
it be everlastingly too late.
But we talk about peace, when there
is no possible peace except the peace
of death to us or death to Germany's
fearful, hell-begotten power.
Some men and women do not yet
comprehend the meaning of this war,
some are pro-Germans, some are
German spies, some are cowards who
disgrace the mothers who gave them
birth, and some are simply" plain ev everyday
eryday everyday fools who should go out and
root and live with the swine of the
field until the appointed time to be

Peace! There can be .no peace be between

and Satan!
Peace with the unrepentant, un unhung,

Peace with the vilest criminals who
ever blackened the records of man's
history!
Peace with the outrager of your
wife and daughter as you look on!
Peace with the cold-blooded butch butchers
ers butchers who murder your beloved son and
the sons of millions and millions of
others!
Is there anything on earth so
craven, so bereft of soul that it would
claim to be a man and yet be willing
to parley with these accursed murder murderers
ers murderers and worse, led by "William, the
accursed?"
"Is life so dear or peace so sweet'
that we are willing to permit any
word of peace to be uttered until we
have throttled the demon and fought
him to a finish? And then, when he
cries for mercy, let there be no mercy
except such as he gave tpf Belgium
and France, no mercy except mercy
to all civilization for all the centur centuries
ies centuries to cpme, expressed through the
gallows as these foul blots on man mankind,
kind, mankind, the kaiser and all his associates,
pay the just penalty for their un unspeakable
speakable unspeakable sins.
Then and not until then should we
have one word more to say to Ger Germans
mans Germans or to Germany. Now our su
preme duty is to fight, fight to kill,
kill until these brutes realize that a
mightier power than theirs has been
sent by God to do His .work in their
utter destruction.
They are murdering our loved ones.
Every day brings the toll of death
and every day for months and per
haps for years we must suffer the
awful agonies which our Allies have
endured, and there is no power to
lessen this toll of our innocent loved
ones, except we kill and kill and keep
on killing the murderers who like
wild beasts are seeking to destroy the
world.
This is our task. Let us forget all
else, let us make sure that no word
or thought of peace shall be uttered
m this land; let us determine to
create the mightiest fighting machine
ever ount by man and ta drive it with
all the power of one hundred million
freemen who seek to save ourselves
and the world from the destruction of
hells most active workers.
jlf President Wilson and Secretary
McAdoo want to make the Liberty
ioan go witn a rush, if they want to
quicken with superhuman power the
energies of this country, let them
call the nation to the struggle on this
definite basis and on the basis of
death to every German sdv and life
imprisonment to every pro-German
and say that not a word of peace
shall be uttered in America, not 'a
word of parleying, directly or in-
airectiy, snail be held with any of
these red-handed murderers, then the
nation will leap forward to war nnrl
to victory.
Elsewehere we print a rincino-
torial from the Manufaceurers' Re Record,
cord, Record, which emphatically sets forth
tne sins of the Hun and what its
punishment should be. Our govern
ment is too lenient toward these mur
derers and unjust to its own soldiers
and people. It is difficult to believ
but it is nevertheless the truth, that
now, a year after the beginning of
the war, we have no law dealing with
spies. It has been proven over and
over again in past years that they
are among us in force, perpetrating

My Lady April
When down the stair at morning
The sunbeams round her float,
Sweet rivulets of laughter
Are budding injier throat;
The gladness of her greeting
Is gold without alloy;
And in the morning sunlight
- I think her name is Joy.
When in the evening twilight
The quiet book-room lie3,
We read the sad old ballads,
While from her hidden eyes
The tears are falling, falling,
That give her heart relief;
And in the evening twilight,
I think her name is Grief.
My little April lady,
Of sunshine and of showers,
She weaves the old Spring magic
And breaks my heart in flowers!
But when her moods are ended,
She nestles like a dove,
Then, by the pain and rapture,
I know her name is Love.

food.

Emperor Himself.
The committee on public infor

and consisting of the secretary of
state, secretary of war, secretary of
the navy, and George Creel, official
censor, has made public a mass of
evidence dealing with German war
practices which shows the kaiser's
leaders in the field and in command
of captured points to be directly re

has characterized the operations of
the Huns, in the present conflict.

tion. Information. All the other rules and regula regulations
tions regulations she accepted in the most binding
manner.
But Germany's military leaders had
no intention of keeping these solemn
promises. They had been trained
along different lines. Their leading
generals for manjt years had been urg urging
ing urging a policy of frightfulness. In the
middle of the nineteenth century Von
Clausewitz was looked upon as vthe
greatest military authority, and the
methods which he advocated were used
by the Prussian army In its successful
wars of 1866-1871. Consequently be because
cause because these wars had been successful,
the wisdom of Von Clausewitz' meth methods
ods methods seemed to the Prussian army to be
fully proved.
Policy of Frightfulness.
Now, the essence of Von Clausewitz
teachings was that successful war in involves
volves involves the ruthless application of force.
In the opening chapter of his master
work, MVom Kriege ("On War"), he
says :
, "Violence arms itself with the inven inventions
tions inventions of art and science. ... Self Self-imposed
imposed Self-imposed restrictions, almost impercep imperceptible
tible imperceptible and hardly worth mentioning,
termed usages of international law,
accompany it without essentially im impairing
pairing impairing Its power. . Now, philan philanthropic
thropic philanthropic souls might easily Imagine that
there Is a skillful method of disarm disarm-lng
lng disarm-lng of subduing an enemy without
causing too much bloodshed, and that
this is the true tendency of the art of
war. However plausible this may ap appear,
pear, appear, still It Is an error which must be
destroyed; for In such dangerous
things as war, the errors which pro proceed
ceed proceed from a spirit of 'good-natured-ness'
are precisely the worst. As the
use of physical force to the utmost ex extent
tent extent by no means excludes the co cooperation
operation cooperation of the Intelligence, It follows
that he who uses force ruthlessly, with without
out without regard to bloodshed, must obtain
a superiority, if his enemy does not
so use it.
In 1877-78, in the course of a series
of articles upon "Military Necessity
and Humanity," General von Hartmann
wrote, In the same spirit as Von Clau Clausewitz:
sewitz: Clausewitz: The enemy state must not be spared
the want and wretchedness of war;
these are particularly useful In shat shattering
tering shattering Its energy and subduing Its will."

breaks out, terrorism becomes a nec necessary
essary necessary military principle." "It is a
gratuitous illusion to suppose that
modern war does not demand far more
brutality, far more violence, and an
action far more general than was for formerly
merly formerly the case."
In 1881 Von Moltke, who had been
commander in chief of the Prussian
army In the Franco-Prussian war, de declared
clared declared r
"Perpetual peace Is a dream and not
even a beautiful dream. War Is an ele element

human." superhuman." "The great good In war Is
that it should be ended quickly. In
view of this, every means, except those
which are positively condemnable,
must be permitted. I cannot, in any
way, agree with the declaration of St.
Petersburg when It pretends that the
weakening of the military forces of the
enemy' constitutes the only legitimate
method of procedure In war. No One
must attack all the resources of the
enemy government, his finances, his
railroads, his stock of provisions and
even his prestige. ..."
Many other examples might be cited
from the writings of German generals.
The very best illustration of this atti attitude,
tude, attitude, however, is to be found In the
emperor's various speeches, and espe especially
cially especially in his speech to his soldiers on
the eve of their departure for China in
1900. On July 27 the kaiser went to
Bremerhaven to "bid farewell to the
German troops. As they were drawn
tip, ready to embark for China, he ad addressed
dressed addressed to them a last official message
from the fatherland. The local news newspaper
paper newspaper reported his speech in fulL In
It appeared this advice and admonition
from the emperor, the commander In
chief of the army, the head of all Ger Germany:
many: Germany: 8oldiers Told to Be Merciless.
"As soon as you come to blows with
the enemy he will be beaten. No mercy
will be shown! No prisoners will be
taken! As the Huns, under King At At-tila,
tila, At-tila, made a name for themselves,
which is still mighty In traditions and
legends today, may the name of Ger German
man German be so fixed In China by your deeds,
that no Chinese shall ever again dare
even to look at a German askance. .
Open the way for Kultur once for all."
Even the Imperial councilors seem to
have been shocked at the emperor's
speech, and efforts were promptly
made to suppress the circulation of his
exact words. The efforts were only
partly successful. A few weeks later,
when the letters from the German sol soldiers
diers soldiers In China were being published.
In local German papers, the leading
socialist newspaper, Vorwaerts, ex excerpted
cerpted excerpted from them reports of atroci atrocities
ties atrocities under the title "Letters of the
Huns." Many of the leaders In the
reichstag felt very keenly the brutality
of the emperor's speech. The obnox obnoxious
ious obnoxious word "Huns" had excited almost
universal condemnation. When the
reichstag met. In November, the speech
was openly discussed. Herr tleber of
the center (Catholic party), after quot quoting
ing quoting the "no mercy" portion of the
Speech, added, "There are, alas, in Ger Germany
many Germany groups enough who have regard regarded
ed regarded the atrocities told in the letters
which, have been published as the duti dutiful
ful dutiful response of soldiers so addressed
and encouraged." The loader of the
social democrats, Herr Eebel, spoke
even more pointedly. Toward the end
of a two-hcur address on the atrocities
commltte 1 by the German soldiers in
China and on the speech of the em emperor,
peror, emperor, he said:
"If .Germany wishes to be the bearer
of civilization to the world, we will
follow without contradiction. But the
ways and means In which this world
policy has been carried on thus far, in
which it has been defined by the em emperor
peror emperor . are not, In our opinion,
the way to preserve the world position
of Germany, to gain for Germany the
respect of the world.''
The consequences of the emperor's
speech Bebel aptly described:
"By it the signal was given, garbed
in the highest authority of the German
empire, which must have most weighty
consequences, not only for the troops
who went to China but also for those
who stayed at horn 3. An expedition
of revenge so barbarous as this has
never occurred In the last hundred
years and not often In 'hlstory; at
least, nothing worse than this has hap happened
pened happened in. history, either done by the
Huns, by the Vandals, by Genghis
Khan, by Tamerlane, or even by Tilly
when he sacked Magdeburg."
Atrocities in China.
These atrocities in China or "Letters
of the Huns" continued to be published
in the Vorwaerts for several years and
appeared Intermittently in the debates
of the reichstag as late as 19Q6. At
that time the socialist, ;Herr Kunert,
reviewing the procedure in a trial of
which he had been the victim in the
previous summer, stated that he had
offered to prove "that German soldiers
in China had engaged in wanton and
brutal ravaging; that plunder, pillage,
extortion, robbery, as well as rape and
sexual abuses of the worst kind, had
occurred on a very large scale and that
German soldiers had participated in
them." He had not been given an op opportunity
portunity opportunity to prove his allegations, but
had been sentenced to prison for three
months for assailing the honor of the
"whole German army." The out out-rageousness
rageousness out-rageousness of this sentence was made
clear by the revelations, made in the
reichstag shortly afterwards, of simi similar
lar similar atrocities committed by German
officials and soldiers in Africa In the
campaign against the Hereros.
For the guidance of the officers in
case the inhabitants of conquered ter territory
ritory territory should take up arms against the
German army, the "German War
Book" quotes with approval the letter
Napoleon sent to his brother Joseph:
"The security of your dominion de depends
pends depends on how you behave in the con conquered
quered conquered province. Burn down a dozen
places which are not willing to sub submit
mit submit themselves. Of course, not until
you have first looted them ; my sol soldiers
diers soldiers must not "be allowed to go away
with their hands empty. Have three
to six persons hanged In every village
which has joined the revolt: pay no
respect to the cossack" (that is, to
members of the clergy).
