We enter No. 14, climbed up the stairs, ring Ins I)II. Comrade Liebknecht opens the door himself. He is thin, his hair looks unusually black and his face is deathly pale. He w -alks like a dead man, walking with grin, steps. He leaves us and soon returns with his wife; she is a Russian. She nods wel come to us all. Suddenly a ter rible fear comes to me. No one has spoken a word, yet we all feel that we are in the presence of a supreme moment. From Comrade Liehkneeht's grins' Silence W judge that he is about to hurl prudence to the four winds and defy the Govern ment. He hands out, one to each of us, a copy of the speech which he will deliver. So far not one word is spoken. While we are hurriedly reading his speech, which is tf> be delivered within f lew hours, h remarks, "I have several thousand of these print ed." We have finished reading the prospectus which will make history and send him to prison. then we go into conference We have been with him just an hour. We leave him. Shortly after 2 p. tn. same afternoon. May Day-1 have taken a hasty fun, h at the Cen tral Hotel. At I near the door I hear the footsteps of great multitudes. As far as I can see, all the streets are full of surging silently moving human beings; all moving in the direction Where the May D.iydemonstra* tion is to take place. These are men and women, mostly women. The men among them are mostly over 50. Suddenly it becomes apparent to me that there are more children in the crowds than men and women togeather. As they march I notice that I cannot sea one in the crowd who has a smile on their faces. Along the route no one is cheering them. 1 had never seen such immense crowds in the streets of Berlin Not even during the Aghadir crises had the streets of Merlin held such multitudes. The crowds move as though they are a part of n funeral prossession I hey are all sad, very sad. I recognieea group of comrades in the crowd. I rush In an join them. Mund halten (keepl your mouth shut) is theunvvrit I ten rule, and every one seems to observe it strictly GUARDS RIDE THROUGH CROWD Some one has turned the head of the procession into Unter den Linden.

War Kept up by Lie
Says Liebknecht.
Now Faces Death for High Treason
Berlin, May i, very early in
the morning With three other
comrades I resell Hortensien
strasse, where Comrade Lieb-
knecht lives. We enter No. 14,
climbed up the stairs, ring Ins
I)- II. Comrade Liebknecht opens
the door himself. He is thin,
his hair looks unusually black
and his face is deathly pale. He
w-alks like a dead man, walking
with grin, steps. He leaves us
and soon returns with his wife;
she is a Russian. She nods wel
come to us all. Suddenly a ter
rible fear comes to me. No one
has spoken a word, yet we all
feel that we are in the presence
of a supreme moment. From
Comrade Liehkneeht's grins'
Silence W judge that he is about
to hurl prudence to the four
winds and defy the Govern
ment.
He hands out, one to each of
us, a copy of the speech which
he will deliver. So far not one
word is spoken. While we are
hurriedly reading his speech,
which is tf> be delivered within
f lew hours, h remarks, "I have
several thousand of these print
ed."
We have finished reading the
prospectus which will make
history and send him to prison.
then we go into conference
We have been with him just
an hour. We leave him.
Shortly after 2 p. tn. same
afternoon. May Day-1 have
taken a hasty fun, h at the Cen
tral Hotel. At I near the door
I hear the footsteps of great
multitudes. As far as I can see,
all the streets are full of surging
silently moving human beings;
all moving in the direction
Where the May D.iydemonstra*
tion is to take place.
These are men and women,
mostly women. The men among
them are mostly over 50. Sud-
denly it becomes apparent to
me that there are more children
in the crowds than men and
women togeather. As they
march I notice that I cannot sea
one in the crowd who has a
smile on their faces. Along the
route no one is cheering them.
1 had never seen such immense
crowds in the streets of Berlin
Not even during the Aghadir
crises had the streets of Merlin
held such multitudes. The
crowds move as though they are
a part of n funeral prossession
I hey are all sad, very sad.
I recognieea group of com-
rades in the crowd. I rush In an
join them. Mund halten (keepl
your mouth shut) is theunvvrit

observe it strictly
GUARDS RIDE THROUGH
CROWD
Some one has turned the head
of the procession into Unter den
Linden. We do not know why ;
very few of us have noticed it
anyhow. We suddenlv see B
made it with a grim humour,
but to da> the humour of it
must be disconnected from it,
it is ;ill too grim. I'.speciailv
in these days this observation
is too true. Today we are

holds up his hand forbiddingly
then he resumes:

Outside of Germany these re
! marks might sound' like the
stock phrases of a professional
agitator, but not so in Germany,
at least not in these days. I
carefully watched foi the effect
of these remarks all.about me,
and I saw no pair of dry eyes.
Amid tense silence the doc-
tor continued :
"In a recent issue the mouth-
piece of the Phaisee, Muencher

plains thus (reading from a
clipping) :
"()ur soldiers do not always

Nursing Mothers
MANY mothers would like to feed their
own children, but arc denied the privilege
of doing so, because they havo not suffi-
cient nourishment for them. The "ADenburye"
scientific system of Infant Feeding has provided
for all this. When a mother is partly able to
feed her baby she may give The "Allenburys" Milk
Food No. I for alternate feeds, so alike are tl,
natural and prepared food in this instance, and this
food should be continued until the weaning process
has been entirely completed The mother herself
must be well nourished and to tins end mav partake
freely of the "Allenburys" diet a partially pro.
digested milk and wheaten i"l. which like th
Milk I.ood No. 1, is instantly made ready for use
by simply adding bmUng water only. After
childbirth the Allenbury," DjT is surprisingly
helpful in maintaining the strength and producing
good flow of rich milk.

a blunt fork^at the head, and
is apparently grooy< d.
Working through the groove,
ami projecting from the
