Two or three times, the Star has
remarked on: the inconsistency of
Americans becoming angry to hear
music written by such famous Ger German
man German composers as Handel, Beethoven
and Wagner played in public. Now,
we wish to say we think it would be
mighty good policy, and also show
good taste, if not patriotism, for
Americans who like to hear German
music, to refrain from having it
played in public until the war is over.
It makes a good many people angry
to hear it to them it seems a bad
accompaniment to the crash of ex exploding
ploding exploding shells and torpedoes that kill
our" soldiers or sailors every day.
When one loyal American does some something
thing something that hurts or angers another
loyal American, he hurts our common
country and makes its enemies glad.

have been imparted by St. Patrick to

A blessing on every treasure

On slopes,' on plains,
On mountains, on hills, a blessing.
