FEARFUL SUFFERINGS OF GER GERMAN

of the desperate attempts made by
the Germans to cross the Yser. An en entry

The people of America should give
to charity this Christmas as largely
as their means will allow.
They should first give to the needy
of their own land, and then to the
institutions that are trying to' .relieve
suffering abroad. .:'
Never since this planet began its
journey through space has there been
such need among the humanity upon
its surface as there is 'today. Never
before have so many men been torn
with torturing wounds or so many
women and children destitute.
The story we print elsewhere, of
the suffering of women and babies in
Belgium, was not written by a wild wild-eyed
eyed wild-eyed sensationalist but by an Amer American
ican American newspaper man who has won a
place in the front rank of journalism
by his, accuracy.
His story covers only a little space
in the wide area of desolation that the
war has brought, to Europe.
We cannot begin to relieve it all.
We should relieve all we can.
It is useless and foolish to stop now
to argue what has caused all the trou trouble
ble trouble or who is to blame, or what other
people should do. It must be plain to
us what we should do.
The American mother j who gives
what she can spare for the relief of
the homeless mothers and starving
babies of Belgium will have all the
more right to be thankful for the
safety and plenty of her own land.
Somewhere there is a saying that
"he who gives quickly gives twice."
In view of the need today, it" is no
exaggeration to say that those who
give quickly give a hundred fold.

tone. "Her baby is dead' she said.
'She had no milk in her."

by an American from -: Belgium. He

of a German cook camp, watching a

"What are they doing ? he asked
a German sergeant with whom he
had struck up acquaintance.
"Scraping our condensed milk

only way to get milk for their babies.

round a can which looked as bright as
a new coin, and hold them into the

Here is another recent picture from
stricken Brussels, that gay, dainty,
lively city in old times -the city
whose smiling people, called it petit
Paris. The scene is the once busy,
pleasant boulevard Bischofsheim. A
woman collapses on a bench set along
the sidewalk after the fashion of the

months old, has a pale, lead-colored
skin. Its mouth is open as though
set that way, Its eyes are. closed.
Two women of Brussels pass this
unhappy group. They, hurriedly ex?
change some words, turn back to the
woman on the bench. Then one stands
guard while the lother hastens for
some milk and breadsuch as is to
be found in' the Brussels of today.
They force a little milk between the
teeth of the mother. They let the
baby drink. ; Unweaned though it is,
it drinks as though it had never
drunk otherwise. 1
To the face of the mother comes a
few patches of color. She slowly re recovers
covers recovers until she is able to eat a bit
of bread. The -baby opens its mouth,
drinks more greedily. "It has not
fed since two days," the mother whis whispers
pers whispers : :
The mother tries to rise from the
bench but she can not. The ; elder
child drinks the milk that is left. It
looks curiously- at the piece of bread
as if it did not know what i was. The
mother forces it to eat. A crowd has
gathered, murmuring. This sight is
not new, yet each time it draws a
little crowd. Every one would like to
give but no one can. Who is not
poor at this moment? Many of them

Belgium is shut off from the world
ringed with steel. Her own food
supply was used up long ago, either
by the people or by their conquerors.
The cattle were, first of all to go;
even in August I saw the Germans
killing milch cows for rations. A cow
or a small dairy herd is left here or
there; but they are the exceptions.
The supply of condensed milk ran
short long ago. Now milk is a neces necessity
sity necessity to most civilized children between
the ages of one and two years. Some
children, it is true, pull through, un under
der under exceptional circumstances of pri privation,
vation, privation, without it; but these are the
unusually sturdy; they stand apart
from the rule. The average young
child must have milk or he will die.
And there is no milk.
Again, the suckling baby must
have mother's milk or a substitute.
There is, of course, no substitute to be
had in Belgium and equally there is
little mother's milk.

little that is for a civilized humane be being,

learns that the average inhabitant of
Greater New York consumes 42
