Mr. Marcus C. Fagg, State Superin Superintendent,

Dr. Hart has referred to this office
your inquiry concerning the Countess
Von Schimon with the request that
we make an investigation. The fol following
lowing following is the gist of the information
we havf been able to secure.
We find clippings from the New
York World as far back as 1907 stat stating
ing stating that the Countess Caroline O. S.
Von Schimon, then residing at 525
Wythe avenue, Brooklyn, intended
opening an institution for friendless
women at 166 Broadway, Williams Williamsburg,
burg, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The article gives
something of the countess' history.
It appears that she is an Austrian
and was at one time attached to the
court of the Empitess Elizabeth. She
seems to have come to this country
about 1895 and according to her own
statement had ample means at that
time. Always eccentric, she had vol voluntarily
untarily voluntarily left the Austrian court and
on coming to this country she married
an Austrian laborer named George
Schwandorf. Schwandorf has been
dead for some years.
She has had a good many ups and
downs and at one time was arrested
for vagrancy and confined in the
Raymond street jail for ten days. It
was through her jail experience that
she conceived the idea of opening a
home for friendless women but we
have not been able to find that any anything
thing anything came of it. She had one child,
a boy, who has disappeared and who
the countess claims was stolen or
kidnapped when he was fourteen
years old. T

TRIBUNE ON THE WRONG TACK

j. Our Ocala contemporary goes a
long way out of its path to give Gov Governor
ernor Governor Catts a tantalizing dab in his
proboscis and to cast an aspersion
upon the Hillsborough county tax
collector. The Star is chafing under
its flanks because Governor Catts re removed
moved removed the Duval tax collector on ac account
count account of a shortage in his cash
amounting to $146,000. The Hills Hillsborough
borough Hillsborough collector is an honest man
and an efficient and accommodating
official and his friends apprehend no
such a calamity. Governor Catts is
to be commended for removing from
office the incompetents and thieves.
Tampa Tribune.
We can't understand why the Tri Tribune
bune Tribune thinks we are chafing about
Rast.' The Tribune can't produce any
words of ours to that effect; neither
can it, without twisting our words to
suit its own purposes, make it ap appear
pear appear that we have cast any aspersion
on the tax collector of Hillsborough
county.
We have not criticised Gov. Catts
for removing Rast. Neither have we
praised him. Florida has had eight
governors since we came to the state,
and each of them has removed one or
more defaulting officials. But until
the Tribune praised Catts, nobody
ever thought of praising a governor
for removing a dishonest official. The
Tribune's praise of Catts for this act
shows how hard up it is for some something
thing something to 'praise him about. If Catts
hasn't removed Rast, the legislature
would almost certainly have ; im impeached
peached impeached Catts. When a man is hired
to do certain work, and will be fired
if he doesn't do it, why praise him
because he does it. Of course, Catts
surpended Rast. What else could he
have done? V,
. We have criticised Catts for ap appointing
pointing appointing his son-in-law to fill the of office.
fice. office. Will the Tribune say it was the
proper thing to do? Doesn't it know
that nepotism is one of the things
democracy is unalterably opposed to ?
Will the Tribune go back over tho
history of Florida and find a more
glaring instance of nepotism than
this? Will it find anything like it,
even in carpetbag days ?
If Will Knott was governor, and
had a son-in-law, and appointed him
to such an office, what would the Tri Tribune
bune Tribune have said?
Mr. Paderick may be, and probably
is, an honest and capable man. We
have neverf heard anything against
either his integrity or his ability. But
the governor had no right to appoint
him to the office and he had no right
to accept it.
A hundred and forty-two years ago,
the people of this country decided
that they had no use for men in pub public
lic public office who used their offices for
their personal profit and for, the per personal
sonal personal profit of the members of their
families. Whenever an official has
gone against this decision, the people
have always put him out of office, and
the people of Florida will put Catts
and his tribe out the first time they
get a chance. N
We believe the Tribune claims to
be a democratic paper. Did it ever
hear of such an institution as. the
county democratic executive commit committee?
tee? committee? Has it forgotten that democratic
usage required a governor whenever
a county official died, resigned or was
removed, to wait for the recommen recommendation
dation recommendation of that committee ? Did it
know that from Drew to Trammell
that custom was respected by demo-
cratic governors, who never disre disregarded
garded disregarded it unless they had good rea reason?
son? reason? Did Catts give the people of
Duval county any chance to say who
they wanted for their tax collector?
Didn't he send his son-in-law over
theer and put him in the office as the
kaiser would have sent one of his
sons to reign over a conquered pro province?
vince? province?
J The governor did not find out that
Rast was delinquent, but he undoubt undoubtedly
edly undoubtedly knew he was being investigated.
Rast was suspended from the office
Saturday. Catts put his son-in-law
into it the next Wednesday.. Swift
work. No man was ever railroaded
into a fat job so rapidly before.
The Tribjune is peeved at the Star
and misrepresents what it says. It
is peeved because it is on the wrong
tack. The tack is the official reeord
of Catts, and the Trib. sits on it to
try to cover it up. Sitting on a tack
is very uncomfortable, so we are
sorry for the Tribune.

federates Confederates last year in Washington
city selected Tulsa Okla., as the place
for the reunion of 1918. It was the
first time an Oklahoma city had been
selected as a reunion city, and the
interest already mentioned attaches
to Tulsa first, to Oklahoma second.
'The first and most important con consideration
sideration consideration among the very large num number
ber number of people interested in reunions,
is the matter of ability of a reunion
city to finance the meeting. It is well
known that, to properly entertain a
Confederate reunion, from $75,000 to
$100,000 is necessary. The question,
therefore.Jn the minds of the people
of the south is, "Can Tulsa furnish
the money?"
No Confederate reunion city has
more money, population considered,
than Tulsa. Few of them have as
much, with no consideration as to the
population. A brief statement of Tul Tulsa's
sa's Tulsa's financial strength should dispel
any doubt that may have arisen on
this score. In fact, the fund for en entertaining
tertaining entertaining the reunion is already sub subscribed
scribed subscribed and assured. One hundred
thousand dollars, if necessary,, will be
expended to entertain the reunion.
A consolidated bank statement re reveals
veals reveals the strength of the community
in money. Under the comptroller's
call for bank statements of the date
of May 10, 1918, the banks of Tulsa
showed the following wealth:
; Total capital and surplus, $3,080,000.
Total undivided profits, $490,159.23.
Total deposits, $52,336,215.57.
Total resources, $59,682,974.02.
Examine now ; the table of bank
clearings. In the month of June, ,1918,
the total clearings, as shown 'by the
report of the clearinghouse associa association
tion association were $47,082,045.1,7. Taking these
figures as a monthly average for the
year, the total clearings for 1918 will
be $564,984,540. ; This statement is
mnder, rather than above, the figures
for the year,1 because the clearings
are increasing every month. It is
safe to estimate the total bank clear clearings
ings clearings for 1918 at six hundred millions.
The clearings in June, 1918, were 60.8
per cent above those of the same
month of 1917.
While Tulsa is the great money
center of the southwest, her people
are patriotic also. They are giving
and lending their money to the gov government

volume. At the close of the campaign

lars. dollars. So, Tulsa has contributed more
than $17,000,000 to the various war
loans and straight donatfon funds.
Her quota of $4,600,000 in the third
liberty loan, was subscribed in less
than a week.
A community that enjoys the finan financial
cial financial strength that these figures in indicate,
dicate, indicate, can finance any undertaking
it may invite. Tulsa invited the
Confederates to come here with their
1918 reunion, fully understanding
whatsit would cost. And Tulsa will
pay the reunion bill.
Tulsa will not only pay the reunion
bill, but she will pay it ungrudgingly.
She will also extend the glad hand
to all reunion visitors. The dates of
the reunion are Sept. 24-27 inclusive.

CHAPTER VIII.
The Kaiser's Confidence of Victory.
About twelve years ago I attended
the German military maneuvers at
Liegnltz, in Silesia, having been in invited

mine to accompany them In the motor

sentatives representatives of England, France, Amer America
ica America and other countries were there
with the kaiser's staff to witness the
display of Germany's military power.
Apparently they were very much im impressed,
pressed, impressed, for I heard afterwards that
one of the .French officers who had
been present had written a book in
which he said: "With such an army,
Germany could annex France in six
months V
I happened to mention this fact to
the kaiser shortly afterwards and his
significant comment was:
"Six months I I should hope so. It
wouldn't take that long I"
The confident belief that when Der
Tag" "the day" finally arrived, Ger Germany
many Germany would crush her enemies and ac accomplish
complish accomplish her object within a few
months at the outside was held t not
only by the kaiser but by the people
generally and their conduct when the
war broke out clearly disclosed it.
l When Germany's man power was
mobilized, no one In Germany, believed
it would be very long before they
would all be back and every effort was
made to make their few weeks of ac active

sible. possible. "Llebesgaben," gifts of love,
consisting of clothing and food of
every description, were forwarded to
them by their relatives and friends In
the most lavish manner, although, of
course, at that time the German com commissary
missary commissary was able to satisfy all the sol soldiers'
diers' soldiers' requirements. i
One of my patients told me that she
had sent seventeen hundred pounds of
sausages to one regiment v within a
week, and when I asked her why she
had been so generous she replied that
her chauffeur was a member of the
regiment! r
The extent to which the country's
resources were squandered in those
early months is evidenced by the fact
that the soldiers had such an excess
of ill-fitting woolen wearing apparel
that they used many of the knitted ar articles
ticles articles as earpieces and covers for their
horses. No one had the slightest idea
that the time might come when the
whole nation would be clothed in pa pa-perl
perl pa-perl
At this late day it can hardly be
necessary to establish how thoroughly
prepared the Germans were for the
war, but an incident which occurred In
the early days of the conflict may not
be out of place to show the self-satisfied
and confident attitude which all
the Germans assumed.
Two officers sitting at a table In an
out-of-door cafe shortly after the war
began overheard one of several ladies
who were passing remark : "Look at
those officers sitting there drinking.
Why are they not at the front fight fighting?"
ing?" fighting?" One of the officers got up and,
approaching the ladies, said : "Our
work was completed months ago. We
worked from early morning till late at
night on plans which our armies are
now carrying out. It Is our time to
rest,"
The resistance that France would be
able to put up was always very lightly
estimated, and if the intervention of
England was at all taken into consid consideration,
eration, consideration, the comparatively small army
she could place in the field was re regarded

horde that was ready to 6weep across
the border. How could England's 80,000
men cope with Von Kluck's 500,000 or
the hastily mobilized French armies re resist
sist resist the thoroughly prepared, equipped
and well-disciplined German warriors?
It is really not to be wondered at
that the Germans firmly believed that
they would bring the allies to their
knees within a comparatively few
weeks and that the conquering Ger German
man German armies would celebrate Sedan
day, September 2, In Paris. What ac actually
tually actually happened Is, of course, too well
known here to require recital, but I
know that the Germans were kept in
absolute ignorance of the marvelous
resistance the allies were able to put

September, 1914, and to this day the
majority of Germans have not heard

A DOLLAR W ASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser-'
vices, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government

The Mysteries of Life
There is mystery in the flush of dawn
upon a hazy hill,
in the cool, blue night, and the
stars' nearness when the day is
done;
In remote, untrampled ways that wait
man's coming, white and still;
In the spray of friendly fountains,
dipping, rising in the sun.
There is mystery in the throbbing of
a tired, haggard city,
In deep-laden merchantmen that
break the silence of the sea;
In old melodies and memories; mys mystery
tery mystery in our pity
For those who hurt us; in forgive forgiveness,
ness, forgiveness, where forgiveness might
not be.
There is mystery in the sealed love ol
true heart and true heart
New-born, miraculous, or tried by
year3 of searching pain;
In the final solitude of each man's
soul distant, apart;
Mystery in our stumbling, falling;
in our strength to rise again.
Thei-e is mystery in the willingness of
men to fight and perish
For a dream, a fleeting vision, an
ideal, when but a breath
Divides the thing they hate as evil
from the right they cherish;
Their ; one reward to know their
' dream will live beyond their
death.
There is mystery in the stricken-eyea
grief of a young heart s rend-
mg,
In old eyes looking back along the
road the feet have trod;
In peace, which comes like sanctu
ary at a long life s ending,
And, at last, there is the shelter shelter-,
, shelter-, ing mystery of God.

potash mines of the world. Without
proper fertilization, American crops
will go on decreasing and decreasing
and they won't get any potash until we
get ready to let them have It!"
The failure of the Zeppelins from a
military standpoint was undoubtedly a
great disappointment to the German
people at large, who had counted so
much upon them to bring disaster to
England, but It cannot be said that the
kaiser shared their chagrin. On the
contrary, I have reason to believe that
he never expected very much from that
arm of his military force except as it
might be useful to terrorize the civil
population.
A day or two after Zeppelin's death.
In 1917, a patient of mine, a lady, hap happened
pened happened to remark that It was too bad
that the count had not lived to see the
triumph of his Invention, and when I
saw the kaiser shortly afterwards I
repeated her remark to see what he
would say.
"I am convinced that tb count lived
long enough to see all that the Zep Zeppelins
pelins Zeppelins were capable of accomplishing,"
was his only comment. It recalled the
answer he had given me some years

before when both Zeppelins and air airplanes
planes airplanes were in their Infancy and I had
asked him which held the greater
promise. "We do not know. Time
alone will tell," was his reply.
The last time I conversed with the
kaiser was on November 28, 1S17. Up
to that time we had sent over 109,000
troops, according to the figures which
have since been revealed by Secretary
Baker. According to the kaiser's in information,
formation, information, however, we had only 30, 30,-000
000 30,-000 men in France at that time and
he was of the opinion that we would
never have many more.
"America is having a fine "time try trying
ing trying to raise an army," he declared
satirically. "I hear that 1,000 mutinied
the other day In New York and re refused
fused refused to get on a transport,: and a
town In the Northwest composed prin principally
cipally principally of citizens of Swedish blood
refused to register at all We are get getting
ting getting excellent information about ail
conditions in America."
Shortly before this had come the rev revelations
elations revelations from Washington of the In Intrigue
trigue Intrigue of Count von Luxburg. the Ger German
man German minister to Argentina, and I knew
where the kaiser was getting the In Information
formation Information he referred to. In nearly
i

every case. It appeared, the kaiser's in informants
formants informants were misleading him.
Both before and after we entered
the war the kaiser was thoroughly con convinced
vinced convinced that we could play only a co
Inal part in it so far as man power
was concerned and his assurance on
that point undoubtedly accounted for
his decision to carry through his sub submarine
marine submarine program even though it re resulted
sulted resulted In bringing us into the war.
"Do you realize how many tons of
shipping it takes to ship a single sol soldier?"
dier?" soldier?" he asked me on one occasion.
I confessed my Ignorance on that
point.
"Well, It takes six tons to the man!
To send over an army of 500,000 men,
therefore, your country would require
5,000,000 tons of shipping in addition
to the tonnage required for regular
traffic. Where Is it coming from, with
my submarines sinking the allied ves vessels
sels vessels faster than they can ever be re

placed? My U-boats are doing won wonderful
derful wonderful work and we are prepared to
Jake care of all the troops America
may try to land In France."
"How foolish for America to have
come into the war," he went on. "If
she could succeed in landing a real
army In France, what good would It
do? America can see how easy It was
for me to break through and to cap capture
ture capture 300,000 of the Italians, and they
must realize that I can break through
on the western front and do the same
thing there. If America had kept out
of the war she would have gone on
making untold profits and when peace
was finally declared she would have
been In a most enviable position
among the nations of the world. As it
Is, Wilson will never have a seat at
the peace table if I can help it, and
now America shall have to pay all the
costs of the war !" Evidently he imag imagined
ined imagined that his triumph would be so
complete that there would be no peace
table, but that the warring nations
would be compelled to accept the
terms he offered them, Jn which event,
knowing the magnanimity of the Ger German
man German make-up, I should say the world
at large would have to be content with
very little.
How the kaiser feels now that the
failure yof the U-boats to intercept
American troop ship must be pain painfully
fully painfully apparent to him, and America
has so overwhelmingly overcome the
shortage of shipping, I don't know, but
It Is more than probable that for some
time to come the real situation will, at
any rate, be successfully concealed
from the German people., I know that
the failure of the U-boat campaign was
unknown to the Germans up to the
time. I left Berlin in January, 1918.
While the kaiser and the Germans
generally felt confident that we would
never be able to send many men
across, they professed to feel littl
concern even if w j did.
, According to some of the German of officers
ficers officers with whom I spoke, even If wi
landed 2,000000. men in France it
would not be enough to break thfl
deadlock, as the Germans were taking
a similar number of trained troops
from the Russian front. The only
menace of American participation in
the war lay in the possibility that w
might add considerably to. the allied
air strength. Man power alone, thej
contended, would never be sufficient tc
help the allies much, but overwhelming
superiority In the air might occasion
' the Germans some annoyance.,
The kaiser himself had but a poox
opinion of the fighting qualities of th
American soldier so far as modern wax
requirements are concerned.
"The American soldier would pos possibly
sibly possibly give a good account of himsell
la open fighting," he declared, "but h
