THE Prussian war lords had a "South "American poller."

A luriner conspicuous reaiure 01 cablegrams was the insistence bv Luxhjfrs- that a smi&dron of German sub marines be sent to Argentina1 as a means of aiding him to put over the Prussian program which Berlin was trying to force upon Argentina. Here is a sample cablegram from Luxburg to Berlin: . ' ,. Our attitude toward Brasll has created he Impression' here that our easy' going food nature can be counted on. This Is dangerous In South America, where the people under a thin veneer are Indians. A submarine squadron with run powers to me might probably still save the situation. The claim of Prussian superiority over other peoples stands out in the cablegram. Luxburg assured Berlin that the South Americans r under 1 thin veneer are Indians." Another outstanding feature is the Prussian rell ance on might as reflected in Luxburg's request for "a submarine squadron.' Thus he says, a submarine squadron with full powers to me might prob ably still save the situation." In one cablegram. Luxburg tells how Germany will "be able td carry out her South American pclicy,"' of course, in spite of the Monroe doctrine. In the following he makes reference td "our principal aims In South America: I am convinced that we shall be able to carry through our principal alms in South America, the maintenance of open market in - Argentina and ' the reorganisation of South Brazil equally well, whether with or against Argentina Please cultivate friendship with Chile. The announcement of a visit of submarine squadron to salute the president would even now exercise decisive influence on the situation In South America. . . t m, . i. t .

Thomas, you are going to Amer ica. I never expect to see you a rain. Now when you find a wife, give this to her in memory of your mother." Thomas cams over, settled temporarily at Pittsburg, Pa, and In 1112 fulflUed the prophecy of his mother by finding a sweetheart, to whom he was married In 1114. He presented the dress pattern to his bride In accordance with his mother's wish. Not long afterward the newly wed couple moved to Indiana, where. In 111, a daughter was born. She grew to womanhood and her moth er, then growing old. gsve her the one time precious calico dress, which by now had been converted Into an apron. This dsughter married Thomas 3.
