Why pause we on the slopes of life,
When there are greater heights to
Beyond the toiling and the strife.
But there are nobler things beyond,
Though rugged be the path and
Nor faint nor falter in our course
Though piercing winds around us
Still gleams the distant star of hope,
Beyond the darkness of our way,
And thro' the cloudy mists of doubt,
Shines faith's illuminating ray.
What matters, then, our aching
Our weary feet and bruised hands,
If we may reach the heights sublime
Thro' ways God only understands!

Were but deefat if We should fail
To reach at length the higher plain,
The mountain neaks of life to scale.

Then, on October 24, just as things
were looking their blackest, the great

Italians was started. In three days the
Italians were swept out of Austria and
the Teutons pressed forward to the

to the Venetian plains. By the end of

most vivid in my memory.
It was about three-thirty one Sunday

who, In an awe-stricken tone of voice,
announced that the Neue Palais, the

was informed that the kaiser was suf suffering

On t&I occasion, however,-, I was
guided right through the Shell room,
through a door opening on the left and
up a wide staircase to the kaiser's
garderobe,:or dressing room.
There I found breakfast ready for
me. It consisted of real coffee, real
white bread, butter, marmalade, sugar,
cream and cold meats. It was the first
food of the kind I had eaten In some

As I entered the kaiser's bedroom
he was standing In the center of the
room, fully attired in an army gray
uniform, but without his sword. He
looked more haggard than I had ever
seen him, except once in 1915. Lack
of sleep and physical pain were two
things with which he had had very
little experience, and they certainly
showed their effects very plainly.
He didn't seem to be in the best of
humor but greeted me cordially enough
and shook hands.
"In all my life, Davis," he said, "I
have never suffered so much pain.
I expressed my sorrow and started
to improvise a dental chair out of an

placed some pillows and, as the kaiser
sat down, he laughingly remarked:

The kaiser's face fairly beamed as
he dwelt on the strategy of his gen
