ARTHUR N. DAVIS. D. D. S.
(Copyright, 1978, by the McClure Newspa Newspaper
per Newspaper Syndicate.)
Perhaps the quality that he envied
most in us was our inventive genius.
When Orville Wright was flying at
Te rnpelhofer Feld, in Berlin, in the
early (lays of aviation, the kaiser
could not restrain his admiration.
"I wish I could encourage my people
to become great inventors, such as
America has produced," he declared,
rather hopelessly. "I admire your
wonderful inventive genius."
. The kaiser objected very much to the
fact that many of the foreign opera
singers were attracted to New York
by reason of the fabulous sums paid
them at the Metropolitan opera hous&
Despite the fact that the kaiser ac accused
cused accused us of spending our money too
lavishly, he repeatedly charged the
English as well as ourselves with be being
ing being money-worshipers.
"The Anglo-Saxons worship mam mammon,
mon, mammon, and they try to gloss it all over
with a show of religion," he said.
"Your rich Americans nave so much
money, Davis, that they really don't
know what to do with it. Why, re recently
cently recently one of your millionaires saw
my castle at Corfu and sent one of his
representatives to the court with the
presumptuous message, 'Please tell the
kaiser, that I will buy his castle at
Corfu, and ask him what's his price P
I had word sent back that the castle
was not for sale. The American then
told my representative that he wouldn't
take no' for an answer. The cheek of
the man! He said he didn't care how
much It cost. I serif word back to
that man that there were not enough
dollars in the world to buy that castle.
There are some things that your dol dollars
lars dollars won't buy, Davis, and one of them
is my beautiful castle at Corfu V
a CHAPTER XV.
The German People.
The oath of allegiance which every
German soldier and public official
takes -binds him first to support the
kaiser, with his life and his money,
and then the fatherland.
That is what the kaiser referred to
when he said, in the course of an ad address
dress address to a body of recruits at Pots Potsdam:
"Body and soul you belong to me.
If I command you to shoot your fa fathers
thers fathers and your mothers you
must follow my command without a
The same thought Is involved, of
course, In the kaiser's invariable use
of the possessive pronoun, first person,
in talking of the German people. He
always says "my people," never "the
people." The worst feature about it
is that not only does the kaiser pro proceed
ceed proceed upon the assumption that he owns
the German people "body and soul,"
but the people themselves are willing
to admit it. The Germans are the most
willing vassals In the world.
Veneration and awe of the kaiser are
bred In the bone of the Germans. Even
among the socialists, who are riot near nearly
ly nearly as opposed to the monarchial idea
as is commonly supposed, there is
strong sentiment of loyalty toward the
emperor. True, the socialists are
clamoring constantly for the reform
vote and other political changes, but I
doubt very much whether before the
war, at any rate any large percentage
of socialists would have selied the op opportunity
portunity opportunity to dethrone the kaiser had
it presented itself. Certainly any such
attempt would have been speedily
smothered by those who remained
loyal, even without the aid of the
As long as the kaiser is able to up uphold

tions nations of the world, so long will his
people uphold him. They will stand
behind him as long as he goes forward ;
they will repudiate him as soon as he
turns back. They will acclaim him in
triumph, but will not tolerate him in
defeat. The Kaiser himself realizes
chat nls tenure of office rests upon
victory. The war was started for the
sake ot world dominion ; it has been
continued solely to save the kaiser's
Coming into such intimate and fre frequent
quent frequent contact with the kaiser, I had a
wonderful opportunity to 'observe the
relations which existed between him
and his people.
The conduct of the people since the
war affords ao safe criterion of their
normal views and sentiments. The
activity of government agents and the
power of the inspired press exerted
such a great influence on the feelings
of the people that any outward signs
01 enthusiasm which they displayed
must be liberally discounted. The
demonstrations in favor of the kaiser
and his leaders since the-war have
been more or less artificial, the erowd
being worked up by government agents
and the press accounts have invariably
magnified them. Before the war, how however,

cefved from the public came sponta spontaneously,

when he came out. They waited pa patiently,
tiently, patiently, sometimes for as long as an
hour, for the sake of greeting their
emperor. Their conduct on these oc
casions showed very plainly that he
had a strong hold on their affections.
The kaiser was their idol, and they
were ready to suffer any inconvenience
for the sake of doing him honor.
It was customary for classes of i
school children to be taken to the Tier

emperor's departure, their teachers, no

would gain greater inspiration from
a fleeting glimpse of the living mon monarch

from a prolonged study of the statues
of his departed ancestors.
Most of my patients knew that the
kaiser visited me, and they never tired
of asking questions about him. It was
almost impossible for them to believe
that they were to have the privilege of
sitting in the very chair which their
kaiser had occupied.

Bob Clarke read the letter over and
shoved a piece of copy paper into his

ute minute he had written a paragraph of
advice to "Broken Hearted' and
pinned it to her letter, ready for the

before him and he dealt with the ones

When Bob had answered more than

that Joan was a man and a very

had the room to himself, so he was

advice?, he thought. He had his col column

That answer didn't seem to fit his
case at all. But if "Pining Away"
had been successful, he didn't see why
he couldn't be, by carrying out the

at any rate. Cleo couldn't do any any-thing

Cleo didn't slam the door in Bob's
face, but after she had snubbed his

"Why won't you be reasonable,

"Reasonable l"v she exclaimed.
"Have I not been reasonable? It Is
you who are not reasonable. If you
really had loved me you would be."
"But I have apologized, dear, and
taken all the blame," he said. "Won't

you allow me to come here If you
