The Kaiser as
I Knew Him
8 ARTHUR N. DAVIS. D. D. S.
(Copyright, 1918, by the McClure Newspa Newspaper
per Newspaper Syndicate.)
Democracy's Worst Enemy.
The great military machine which
the kaiser had built up during the first
28 years of his reign "for the purpose
of maintaining peace" was constantly
Itching for war. There was a feeling
among the militarists that while It
was all right for the kaiser to assume
the role of the "Prince of Peace" dur during
ing during the period of preparation, it was
possible to overplay the part. He so
frequently referred to the fact that
his sole purpose in maintaining a large
army and navy was to maintain peace
that the war lords of Germany began
to fear that perhaps he might mean It.
The murder of' the Archduke Franz
Ferdinand, the successor to the Aus Austrian
trian Austrian throne, and his wife by a Ser Serbian
bian Serbian on June 29, 1914, gave Germany
he excuse for which she had been
waiting so long to start a European
conflagration and found Austria as
anxious for war as her ally.
But even had Emperor Franz Joseph
shown reluctance to plunge his nation
Into war and had Austria refused to
chastise Serbia for the murder of the
Archduke I doubt very much whether
the kaiser would have allowed that
event to have gone unavenged.
It touched him in one of his most
vulnerable spots. The sanctity of roy royalty
alty royalty Is one of his. most cherished ideas,
lie felt sponsor for the monarchies
of the world, as we feel sponsor for
the democracies. A thrust at a throne
was a stab at the kaiser's heart, and
with or without the co-operation of
Austria I firmly believe he would have
gone to any lengths' to have avenged
the crime of Sarajevo.
It Is true that the kaiser sent a
message to the czar of Russia in
which he pointed out that Austria
ought to be allowed to chastise Serbia
without interference from the other
European powers,, remarking, "We
princes must hold together," but there
can be no doubt that that was very
far from the outcome dearest to his
heart. If, indeed, the punishment of
Serbia had been accomplished with without
out without 'war the kaiser would have been a
most disappointed man, and If Russia
had failed to ; mobilize her troops,
which gave Germany a pretext for
crossing the Russian border, I haven't
the slightest doubt that Germany
would have prodded Russia into war,
anyway, knowing that France would
follow. "Der Tag" (the day) had
come for which Germany had been
planning and plotting, and nothing 0
earth could now interfere with the ex execution
ecution execution of the program.
How firmly the kaiser was wedded
;to the dynastic idea and how deeply
he abhorred the spirit of democracy
was revealed throughout the whole
course of his life, and in his conversa conversations
tions conversations with roe he frequently gave ex expression
pression expression to views which disclosed how
thoroughly he believed in the "divine
right of kings."

he gave vent to these sentiments was
more significant, perhaps, than the
words used might imply.
"Your president is trying to over overthrow
throw overthrow me and my family from the
throne of Germany by his notes," he
commented bitterly, wnea I saw him
shortly after the publication of the
president's reply to the pope, "but he
little understands how loyal are my
people and now futile his efforts will
prove. They held meetings recently
all over the empire, in every city and
village, and showed their allegiance
to me In no uncertain way, and your
president received the answer from
my people that he deserved!" I won wondered
dered wondered whether the kaiser was unaware
of the fact that all these meetings
had teen Inspired by the government
and their useful agent, the press, cr
whether he was once again making
use of his histrionic ability.
Although Germany is regarded as
the cradle cf socialism, to the kaiser
it was a cancer which was slowly eat eating

the direst misgivings.
Before the war he steadfastly re re-'

ence to the leaders of the socialist I
party in the reichstag, although th
heads of committees of all the other
political parties were at times re received
ceived received in conference.
While the reichstag was little more
than a children's debating (society, the
growth and increasing power of the
socialistic party, wbich was constantly
clamoring for the reform vote, could
not be ignored, and no doubt had a
great deal to do with the militarists'
anxiety not to postpone the war too
After mobilization was ordered,
however, the kaiser decided to recede
from his position somewhat, and frcm
the balcony of the palace in Berlin, in
front of which an enormous crowd
had gathered, he declared significant significantly:
ly: significantly: "I recognize no parties. We are
now all Germans."
If anyone Imagines, however, that
his kowtowing to the socialists in this
instance was evidence cf a permanent
chnnge of heart, he little appreciates
how deeply rooted is the kaiser's ab abhorrence

Indeed, one of the principal things the
kaiser hoped to accomplish by prose prosecuting

victory would make his army the idol
of the people and that their monarch
would shine in the reflected glory of
their martial achievements. A, suc successful

Dreamer and Doer
A dreamer and a doer
Were born the self same day,
Grew up and dwelt together
In comrade work and play.
The dreamer sent his fancy
On classic fields to roam,
The doer fashioned temples
From common clay, at home.
The dreamer saw a kingdom
Where right ruled everything,
Where justice dwelt with liberty
And every man was king.
The doer fought triumphant
Through hatred, pain and dearth,
To bring the kingdom nearer
Of peace, good will on earth.
The dreamer saw his Master
Compassionate and mild.
The doer toiled and suffered
Lifted the crippled child,
Led forth the blind and erring,
Till in his iace men saw
The Master's spirit shining,
And touched his robe in awe.
How could the dreamer triumph ?
How could the doer plan?
Ahl you have read the answer!
They were the self same man.
Fare forth, my valiant doer,
Where storm-tossed pennons gleam
But lose not, in thy striving,
The vision and the dream.

CANT TRUST ONE'S IMPULSE
Cases Known Where Men Who Have
Forsworn Whisky and Tobacco
Have Changed Their Minds.
I was much Interested in Chauncey
Depew's story of the way he broke
away from tobacco at the ripe age of
sixty years, "G. M. F." writes In the
"I bought a Partaga and walked up
the hill to the capitol. I was feeling
very Bad. At the State street corner
I looked at my cigar and said : 'Old
friend, you have sacrificed yourself
for me, and I've pretty nearly sacri sacrificed
ficed sacrificed mysef for you. Here's where you
and I part company. I tossed the cigar
away, it hit the side of a passing horse
car and landed In the street. The car
conductor jumped off, picked It up and
went on, smoking happily.
If the car conductor had not grabbed
the cigar Chauncey might have
changed his mind and reclaimed it.
Grandma used to say that one should
never act upon Impulse. I remember
quitting the use of tobacco once, while
fishing, and I afterward changed my
mind and walked back a quarter of a
mile to retrieve my snipe. The fel fellow
low fellow who forswears booze and breaks
his bottle impulsively generally man manages
ages manages to get another pint somewhere.
Renunciation Is not likely to possess
a durable quality if It Is handcuffed.
I like to Imagine a man giving up
smoking, with a vest pocket full of
cigars, or whisky, with a barrel of it
In the cellar. I say I like to Imagine
It, but do they ever do that? Most
smokers never quit until their draft
is shut off.

Here is a life history of that frail,
yellow quarter-Inch moth. Those that
we see fluttering about the house are
probably looking for a good 'place to
start a colony. Each female moth lays
about 50 eggs. She glues each one
carefully to the fiber of cloth or fur,
and she Is especially pleased with
fuzzy-fabrics, fringes, and frayed edges
where she can bury her eggs deep In
the ambush of tangled threads. After
she has fastened all her eggs her life life-work
work life-work Is over and she dies.
It takes the egg3 just a week to
hatch. Out of each one comes a wee
translucently white caterpillar which
starts Immediately to do damage. As
It eats, it builds a gallery to live In
from a sort of silk of Its own making,
mingled with fibres torn from the fa fabric
bric fabric on which It lives. The caterpillar
gnaws at your coat or your dress or
your blankets for about ten weeks.
Then It enlarges Its feeding case to
make a cocoon. Two weeks It sleeps
In this cocoon, then the case bursts,
the caterpillar comes out a pale, dusty
yellow moth, mates, and starts an another
other another destructive cycle of life.
Fortunes In Bibles.
Eccentric people often conceal sums
of money In the family Bible, where It
Is discovered, sometimes by chance,
after their death.
Such an Incident occurred In Paris.
A French Poilu returned home from

just died. He had lefi him nothing In
his will, only the family Bible. Closer

came across a number of Bank of Eng
