THE INTERNAL STUBBING OF AUSTRIA
The Austrian teoi)Ie have been
'the strict censorship in that country, the trend of world events in
connection with the war into which they were led by their over
lordsrand which has long been carried on against their wishes. .
They, have read the following words from President Wilson's
message: ' - - 1
b . WB HAVE NO SELFISH ENDS TO SERVE.
V , WE DESIRE NO CONQUEST, NO DOMINION. WE .
SEEK NO INDEMNITIES FOR OURSELVES, NO

ONE OF THE CHAMPIONS OF THE RIGHTS OF
MANIilND. WE SHALL BE SATISFIED WHEN

. In the face of that declaratjon, the Teutonic propagandists in
Austria have been telling the people of jthat ,country-that the United
States went into the war to enslave Europe ; that the Central Powers
j must, fight for, their very existence, and so on, ad nauseum.
The people of Austria see' now that they have been fed up on
.rliea...- :. j ,
' They see now that Germany has been using Austria for her own
selfish ends, -''without any hope or chance of reward or benefit to
Austria for all the sacrifices of her people.
They, see now no chance of victory. . i::
'. And, what is more, they see now: no chanee of good to their
. country even through a Teutonic victory'. .
. .". They know it would be a, German victory j for the glory and good
I ,.pf .Germany only. . i
?". -It is no wonder the hungry and 'suffering and war-weary people
: of Austria are demanding peace, and beginning to demand it in
v. terms such as must have the' attention of their government authori
- ties.- , , , t - , - ;
And the same thing is true of(the people of Germany,, though
theyare held-in a firmer grip by the military autocracy of their
country. . ' -, j .
In view of the present campaign
for economy in the United States, It
may be of interest to Americans to
learn what the - people - of England
' have accomplished in this direction.
X the beginning of the war broken
meat and other table refuse in camps
andbarracks were sold as swill tor
pigs at a very low price. Now, how-
- ever, a : wiser - system prevails, and
the utilization "of the by-products of
the ration has ' become a vast busi
ness. , From the table refuse glycer
ine Is now obtained for munitions
at the rate of 1200 tons yearly. At
the present time the profit to the
army from" the sale of -by-products
and swill Is at the' rate of over
14,00.000 a year. '
THE "PEAK LOAI."
France -bore the "peak load" from
v 1914-1917. Great" Britain, it ap
pears from Sir Auckland Geddes'
V statement. Is getting ready to bear
UMn 1918. t The United States will
; bear it In 1919. And Germany bears
the "peak ; load" all ! the time;
, Springfield Republican. '
j. 'k'.t From all Indications, there will be
,no "peak load'; for any nation to
: carry in 1919. Austria la breaking
"down; Turkey la about out of It, and
Germany, will not be able to fight
alone much longer.
- The year, 1918 is reasonably sure
to bring peace to the world: , '
But, in case Germany still follows
her forlorn hope, the United. tSates
will be fully ready to carry the "peak
load- In 1919.

In the Los Angeles City Council con

REAL DOGS OF AVAR.
Training dogs for field work has
been elevated Into a science, and to
day dogs are of such Importance in
the armies of the Allies that the de
mand is far greater than the supply.
" Like everything else in the great
word war, the role of the uugs has
changed, and developed In an extra
ordinary way. In the old days war
dogs were trained for two purposes
only Carrying aid to the wounded
and r accompanying patrols for the
purpose of scouting out the, enemy.
Today the dogs" in active war ser
vice are divided Into six classes:
watch-dogs, patrol-dogs, messengers,
ambulance-dogs, pack-dogs, and liaison-dogs.
tThe most successful of
Jthej trainers declare that the female
dogs have shown themselves the beat
message carriers. They win take a
note to a trench or position any dis
tance up. to about four miles, and
can be, relied upon to come back
with the answer without stopping
or loitering by the way. Shell or
rifle fire does not worry them, and
it is most unusual for them to be
; In previous wars ambulance-dogs
were taught to bring back wound
ed .man's cap or his handkerchief.
Nowadays they are taught to bring
back everything lying within a, yard
or two of the wounded man a' pipe,
a box of matchjes, any piece of equip
ment, or even a stone- found near
him, so long as they come back with
something tS Indicate that they-have
discovered someone , requiring "assis
tance, j ; (-... f r
The liaison-dogs are a very compe
tent branch of the service, and ara
those that carry messages from he
first-line fighting troops to the com-
manding officers In the rear. This
is the most dangerous work and re
quires the "cream" of the. canine
raceUo' carry it out. Thousands of
dogs have an aptitude for this task.
They are specially trained even down
to getting accustomed to shell and
oarrage Tire. Once they are given a
message to carry to the rear it Is
seldom, if ever, they fail to arrive
with it unless they are killed on the
wayj Hundreds of these dogs have
fallen on the field of honor.
Many dogs who fall to show an ap
titude for liaison-work develop intj
excellent sentinels. ' The training
and aptitude for this isrnot so easily
developed as might be imagined, ow
ing to the fact that the most valua
ble services mujt be rendered at
night, llundreds of dogs who prove
first-class sentinels during the day
might become nervous and excitable
under night conditions at the front.
The dogs who attain the degree
of perfection required take their
places on the top of the trench along
side the gun-barrel of thefr masters.
They detect every patrol or individ
ual soldier who attempts to approach
the barbed-wire entanglements In
front, and let their masters know
In a quiet' way without acquainting
the enemy with the fact "that his ap
proach has been discovered.
One of 1 these veterans won" the
Croix de GuVrre at Verdun, where
his master was : killed and himself
badly wounded. He recovered suf
ficiently to go back to service. Dick,
as is bis name, is quite a favorite
among the French army dogs. It
appears that when this animal Is
not actively engaged in bringing in
the wounded he whiles away his time
by running down and capturing en
emy dogs. Not a day passes but he
brings In two or three and even four
bigger than himself. He has a way
of catching them by the" ear and frog
marching them along, and has caus
ed him to be mentioned In despatch
es on more than one occasion.
GEIOIANVS GLORIOUS PEACE."
' Finance Minster Hermet of the
German Empire forsees a "glorious
peace' for Germany. He says, ac
cording fo an Associated Press dis
patch from Amsterdam:
"The general morale also has
( suffered under war conditions,
but of what significance is that
when we remember our brilliant
j military position, created by the
incomparable : and glorious,
deeds of our army and. fleet?
Even though I many hindrances
, bar our way tb peace, peace is .
on the march and the longer the
; Western Powers are recalcitrant
the more favorable to us will
the peace terms be."
Yes, 'the spirit of the German
troops broken, t Germany's colonial
possessions gone, the whole civilized
world arrayed against the Teutons,
the German people starving and
freezing and rioting, the Kaiser's
diplomatic programme smashed, th-3
suffering masses In the big cities of
the Central Powers clamoring for a
cessation of the war, their soldiers
ony fighting when driven to it at
the point of the bayonet, America
entering the lists with great ar
mies of eager and Invincible troops
yes, the prospects of a "glorious
peace" for Germany ar brilliant indeed!?,'-'
', y f ,.J .
A "glorious peaceiwlll cotjne, and
heaven grant that it come soon; but
it will not be the peace of which
Minister Hermet dreams. ' It will
be a "glorious peace," in truth, for
the oppressed people of Germany;
for It will bring the crushing of the
cruel Junkers and .the liberation of
the German masses from the iron
hand of bloody Tyranny.
