authorities of Tulsa, at the repuest
of the reunion committee have ordered
the public schools to be suspended
for the entire week of the reunion,
and the old soldiers will sleep in the
school houses. These buildings are
of brick, one story high, and they are
provided with ample toilet facilities,
water and electrie lights. Five thous thousand

Confederate reunions, has 'been en engaged

According to the talk of the German
diplomats before the war the expecta expectation

used against America at the first op opportunity.
portunity. opportunity. Whether the object of this
campaign was to stir up trouble be
tween Japan and America or only to
awaken this country to a sense of the
danger which the Germans professed
to believe threatened her I don't know.
I do know, however, that prospect of
a Japanese-American war seemed to
worry the Germans considerably more
than it worries us.
The day England declared war
against Germany, August 5, 1914, the
Prince von PI ess called to see me pro professionally.
fessionally. professionally. "There will be two wars fought,' he
said, oracularly. "The present one, by
which we shall gain control of the con continent
tinent continent of Europe forever, and then a
war with the yellow races, In which
we shall probably have your country
to assist us!"
That this opinion was more or less
general In Germany may account for
the fact that from the time war was
declared until August 23, 1914, when
Japan declared war against Germany,
the Japanese residents In Berlin were
made the subject of the most sicken sickening
ing sickening attentions. It was reported that
Japan was going to attack Russia, and
the Germans could not do enough to
show their newly born admiration for
the yellow race which they had hither hitherto
to hitherto so deeply despised. The Japs were
carried through the streets on the
shoulders of the populace and kissed
and cheered wherever they appeared
In public
And then Japan declared war against
Germany! Instantly there was a wild
demonstration in the streets of Berlin,
which would have resulted most disas disastrously
trously disastrously for the Japs who had so recent recently
ly recently been hailed as friends but for the
astonishing fact that every single Jap
had succeeded in getting away from
Berlin before the news of Japan's em em-try
try em-try into the war became generally
In the absence of Japanese upon
which to vent their spleen, the Ger Germans
mans Germans did everything they could to
make life miserable for those who re resembled
sembled resembled Japs. The few CL'aese who
were there were terribly treated either
because they were taken for Japs or
because they were of the same race.
The Siamese minister, Prince Traldos,
who was one of my patients, told me
that when his wife and children went
out on the streets the. crowds followed
them and jeered, referring to the Jap Japanese
anese Japanese as monkeys and using other op opprobrious
probrious opprobrious epithets. They even went
so far as to spit In Princess Traldos
face, and the minister finally decided
to seed her and the children to Switzer Switzerland,
land, Switzerland, although he himself remained at
his post.
I saw the kaiser shortly after the
Japanese declaration of war, and he
was very bitter against the United
States because of that development.
"What is your president thinking of
to allow a yellow race to attack a
white race Now the Japanese are at attacking
tacking attacking Kiau-Chau, and America could
have prevented it. All that America
had to do was to raise a finger and
Japan would have known enough to
keep her place
He spoke in this strain on several
subsequent occasions.
When Kiau-Chau fell he again crit criticized
icized criticized the United States for not having
stopped Japan.
"How can your president allow
Japan to Increase In power at the ex expense

dignantly. Indignantly. "Now China Is lost to the
world forever. America is the one
power that could have prevented it,
but now Japan has got her fingers on
China and she is lost to us forever !"
After we were in the war, the kaiser
expressed to me his opinion that our
object in taking this step was four fourfold:
fold: fourfold: "First," he said, "Wilson wants to
save the money you have loaned to the
allies. Second, he wants to have a
seat at the peace table. Third, he
wants to give your army and navy a
little practical experience unfortu
nately, at our expense. And fourth,
and principally, he wants to prepare
for the war with Japan which he
knows Is Inevitable. The Japanese are
the ones which your country must look
upon as its real enemies.
A German officer of high standing
told me just before I left Berlin that
America had made the great mistake
of sending ammunition, guns and sup supplies
plies supplies to Russia, via Japan, because
Japan had just retained the finely
made American articles and had
(Continued on Third Page)

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 eflkiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. f you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to' your Government.

September strews the woodland way
With many a brilliant color;
The world is brighter than before
Why should our hearts be duller?
This i3 the parting season this
The time when friends are flying
And lovers now, with many a kiss
Their farewells are sighing.
Why is the earth so gaily dressed?
This pomp that autumn beareth,
A funeral seems where every guest
A bridal garment weareth.
Nature perhaps foresees that spring
Will touch her teeming -bosom,
And that a few brief months will
The birds, the bees, the blossoms;
Their" farewells are sighing.
Ah! these forests do not know
Or would less highly wither
The virgin that adorns them so
Will never more come hither!

the receipt of a Paris cable at na national
tional national headquarters emphasizing the
importance of recruiting at once wom women
en women workers for the hospital hut serv service
ice service in France.
"At least 300 high-grade, attractive
women for this activity must arrive
from all divisions before November
1st," reads the Paris cable, and con continues
tinues continues with the information that
"The present force is inadequate for
existing needs, which are expanding
by leaps and bounds."
-The hospital hut service referred to
has to do with the operation of huts
at hospitals formerly handled by the
Y. M. C. A., but now entirely taken
over by the Red Cross. Women who
are keen for entertainment work are
especially needed. There are four
women to each hut. These women
should have attractive personalities
and cheerful dispositions. Knowledge
of French is not absolutely necessary.
Volunteers are wanted but where
this is not possible an arrangement
similar to that for canteen workers
may be made in regard to expense.
The uniform for workers in the hos
pital hut service is the same as that
for canteen workers. The age limits
are twenty-five to forty years.

only by Rev. Ottmann's parishioners,

We wish there were tens of thou

sands of such men as George Perry,

a farmer at Montague. There are
many colored citizens doing their full
duty in Marion county, many of them
doing more in a financial way than
he, but few with the "fighting record
at the front." Perry, over three

months ago, went into the Munroe &
Chambliss National Bank of this city
and bought a dollar's worth of thrift
stamps, and said he wanted to do all
he could and would buy that much
weekly. He has not failed. Mr. J.
M. Thomas said yesterday he had
bought his dollar's worth each week
since. Mr. Thomas was compliment complimenting
ing complimenting him on his regularity in doing his
"bit" Saturday, and George, who is
sixty years of age, said that he had
three sons fighting for him in

France, in the American army, ana
he felt that it was his duty to do all
he could to help Uncle Sam feed them.
Mr. "Thomas told him how the war
"over there" was going, and then

asked him if he had a service flag
out for his sons at home. The old
man admitted that he did not know
what it was for. Mr. Thomas sent
out and got onefor him and told him
to in front of his home and
that every one who passed would
know he had three boys fighting for
them on the great battle front in
France, and the od man went home
with a new and just pride in his
heart. A colored man, whose name
utp have forgotten, at Kendrick, has

three sons in the army, and there
are probably others in the county.
