Division of Good Things
From Home Common.
BERLIN, Nov. 4. (Correspondence of
the' Associated Press.) The German
army is a very human institution Just
now. The iron discipline of the bar
racks and the caste spirit which divides
the officer from the rank and file are
not so much in evidence.
In one of the better restaurants of
Berlin sat two. officers of the line.
The worn look of the field-gray uni
form of one showed that he had seen
service. That the other had been at
the front was made clear by a bandage
over his head.
Following ' an animated recital the
officer in the worn uniform picked
up a bundle which had lain beside him
on the table and proceeded to unwrap
six mouth organs.
Trenches to Have Music.
"You see," he said to his convalescent
companion, "life in the trenches and
there will be much of it, I fear is
rather slow. There are several men in
my company who can play these things
and I am taking these . back to them.
A little music help them pass the time
and keeps them in good humor."

tatoes and the half of a salt herring
the other day and he told me he ap

the private commented: .
"That is so, of course. But the of
ficer did not have to thank me for it."
Duty Is for All Alike.
It would have served no purpose to
argue this point with the man, so an
other question was asked.
"This is the time when everybody
must do his duty," replied the man.
and then added slowly and with em
phasis, "and that duty right now seems
to be the same for all alike- every
body within his place, of course. The
officer is as. likely to be shot as we
are, and sometimes more fo, and that,
I believe, evens things up consider

There is no doubt that the German
army in the field is a more liberal in
stitution than the German army in the
barracks. One reads almost daily of
men carrying their officers to the
dressing station behind the trench or
firing line, and of officers who, after
the fighting is over, make frantic effort
to succor their wounded men. Letters
which speak of officers dividing their
parcels from home with their men have
ceased to be a novelty.
Privates 'Win Honors. "
On th whole it is a rare thing for
a German private to get the iron cross
of the second and first classes together.
So far there are three cases: Infant
rist Maurer Silber. of Querfurth; Re

and Infantrist Henry Mueller, of
Geestemuende. the latter also earning
the promotion to sergeant.
Mueller serves with a machine-gun
section. In a recent engagement the
crew of the section was shot down,
Mueller alone escaping. Instead of
seeking cover Mueller carried his
wounded corporal into a safe place be
hind the firing line, and then returned
to the machine gun, which he began to
work with such efficiency that within a
few moments he had killed and wound

DEATH SACRIFICE MADE UP
Late Kansas Postmaster's Supposed
Shortage Proves Error.
SCAMMON. Kan., Nov. 19. Last
Winter Thomas B. Evans, late post
master of Scammon. found that his

the discovery made him ill and is said
to have caused his death. He blamed
himself for the discrepancy In his

at the time of his death, had done
so. He died believing ne owed the

great interest the proposals of the
United States. Until these are made
our attitude cannot be more than one
of friendly receptivity. Meanwhile,
however, there is no reason why Amer
ican exports o Russia should not be
increased without waiting for the treaty
to crystalize. It will come eventually,
we hope, but it is not now essential as
a basis for trading. Without the for
mal signing of a treaty, we are willing
to offer every reasonable Inducement
and encouragement to American mer
chants. The American exports to this
port could be Increased ten-fold. If
the magnitude of the present oppor
unity was realized in America there
would be no hesitation."
It is pretty well agreed In Russia
that whatever the results of the war,
the German monopoly of commercial
and technical activity is ended, and at
the same time it is realized that Rus
sia herself is incapable of furnishing
the agricultural machinery and equip
ment for one-sixth of the habitable
Russian business men argue that
France is partly agricultural and bank-
ihg people, that England produces a
high grade of articles which Russia
does not require and that England i
too conservative to adapt herself to
new or unusual ' requirements. Thus
by a process of elimination the con
sensus of opinion is that America is
the country which must step into the
breach left by the Germans. This con
clusion is further strengthened by the
analogy between America and Ru3sia
in territory and variety of climate.
That is to say, the kind of machinery
required by conditions In America is
similar to that needed by Russia.
America is in addition an Industrial
country. These arguments and In
ferences lead Russian business men at
present to look eagerly to America.
This agitation has not been without
results. Recently a Russian American
company has been organized in Petro
grad to stimulate commerce between
the two countries, and from America
there has come a list of articles which
could be supplied. These tally exactly
with the articles of which Russia Is in
Immediate need. .

of messages explaining . in detail just
When tonight's conference ended,
both Secretary Daniels and Mr. Lansing
said no further ' Inquiries had been
directed to the American cruisers or the
American Ambassador at Constanti
nople, the talk being largely a detailed
review of previous messages covering

Waters Believed Mined.
Secretary Daniels summed up his
view of the incident by declaring he
believed detailed reports would show
that the firing was intended as a
friendly warning to prevent the launch
from entering mined waters.
"I believe that when Captain Decker's
report is received it will prove that the
firing was a friendly, and not an un
friendly act," said the Secretary.
"Reports that the waters of the
Smyrna harbor are mined indicate
that the shots were fired to warn the
vessels against the danger of mines
which, it might have come into con
tact with had it entered the harbor."
Another explanation advanced by Mr.
Daniels was' that the port had been
officially closed and that the approach
of the vessel caused the guns of the
forts to sound warning to prevent it

The Tennessee today was at Sclo

ican citizens in Turkey frequently
have been pledged by the Porte, but
since that time the United States has
assumed charge of diplomatic inter
ests of the allies with whom Turkey
now is at war, resulting in conditions
marked by delicate responsibilities.
Activities by some Mohammedan lead
ers caused apprehension on the part of
Americans as well as French and
British subjects, and that was reported
by the United States Consul at
Smyrna to Ambassador Morgenthau.
Consulate Thought Sate.
When an investigation of conditions
at the Consulate was determined on,
the Tennessee stood off at Vourlah and
sent a launch on' the way to Smyrna.
Under Navy regulations, it was said.
Captain Decker would have been Jus
tified In attempting to enter the har
bor to inquire into affairs at the con
sulate, regardless of whether Smyrna
port was closed.
Apparently, however, he did not con
tinue on his way to Smyrna, but be
lief was expressed that If the consul
ate had been in imminent danger the
Tennessee would not have left the vi
cinity. An outstanding effect of the
incident, It was believed here, would
be to impress upon the Ottoman au
thorities the anxiety felt for the safety
of Americans in Turkey.
