ernment has declared at Brussels that
r"rance is willing to respect the neu
trality of Belgium aa long as her oppo

that Krenco stood ready for the in
vasion. Prance could wait, but we
could not wait. A French movement
upon our flank upon the lower Rhine
might have been disastrous. So we
were compelled to overrule the just
protests of the Luxemburg and Bcl

Anybody who is threatened aa we are
threatened, and is righting for his high
est possessions, can have only one
thought how he ia to hark his way
The German mlrld ia studious, inquir
ing, analytical, with passion for re
search and fact-seeking. Very well.
Let it seek and produce the facts to
show that Germany was "threatened"
by England and that "Franc stood
ready for the invasion" of Belgium.
Otherwise the neutral world will be
prone to believe that it ia a mind ob
sessedthat the most colossal, the
moat disastrous, the most terrible con
flict in history waa of pyehol.gical
origin in the tragic delusion of a peo
ple. "Militarism" will no longer ex
plain it, since the whole of Germany,
prepared for any and every sacrifice, ia
devotedly back of the kaiser, his army
and his government.
That the war has but begun, that
Uars for years may continue to work
his bloody will, is now a sinister prob
ability. Germany haa failed in her ag
gressive campaign, but will he well-
nigh inconquerable in the defense of
her own soil. Mesnwhile the utmost
circumspection, the most tolerant good
nature, become the constant duty of
thia republic and its people. In view
of Italy's probable participation, and
Japan's ultimatum to China, the mer
est spark may yet involve us in a
world-wide holocaust.

There can be no further question
tnat tne entire Oerman people are a
unit in believing that their beloved
Fatherland is prosecuting a righteous
war for the defense of its integrity.
Further, that they firmly and earnestly
That Russia is in the war to acquire
Meditteranean port and to bring
about a Pan-Slavic onion.
That France is in the war as Rus
sia's ally, and to preserve its security
as Russia's greatest creditor nation.
The desire of France to re-acquire its
lost provinces, Alsace-Lorraine, is re
garded even in Germany as purely incidental.
That England is in the war to crush
Germany as its commercial, naval and
military rival, and has constantly eon-
spired to that end itntil the hour was
ripe to strike. In the German view
there would have been no war bad net
England supported and encouraged
Russian mobilization.
In Germany no bitterness is felt
toward France and Russia. Intense
hatred shared by every German of
whatever degree, politics or religion
ia felt toward England.
The arguments set forth in the Ger
man propaganda now so actively dis
seminated on thia side of the water are
plausible, almost convincing. One is
de to feel that the Germans are
wholly sincere in asserting that they
were compelled to fight and are fight
ing for their national existence. How
ever, it is possible for a man or nation
to be sincere and yet be mistaken.
What the neutral, disinterested and
dispassionate observer requires is
proof, not assertion.
The Germans being painstaking and
thorough, and possessing the finest
intelligence bureau ever known, may
eventually be able to furnish this proof
before the moving causes of the great
war are finally set down in history.
Convincing evidence that France and
England were plotting to violate the
neutrality of Belgium will go ' far
toward supporting the German conten
tion. Meanwhile the evidence is with
the allies, in that Germany ignored
their invitation to unite with them in

Mrs. Dempsey was bom July S

Tuesday afternoon In the presence of
a large congregation. A feeling aor

Bonewlts from the text:
"Set thine house In order, foe. thou
shalt die and not live."
The last words of Mrs. Dempsey
had been committed to paper, and
were read by the minister. They were
embodied In the following prayer
which she uttered sbout 20 minutes
before she passed away:
Dear God, what have I done to
suffer so? O Saviour. If It la possible,
let this cup of death pass from me. It
Is appointed once for every man to

We mentioned that. Including the

In fact we mentioned everything but
the preacher's fee, which was not
worth mentioning. We never men

premiums at the county fair, because
he never exhilbted anything. We
