During the former riots In Berlin
the kaiser's palace suffered not only
from the bombardment, but also
from looting. Larceny held sway.
Like a gang of thieves in discord
the Germans turned upon each oth
er, each endeavoring to steal '.lie
most and the kaiser proved him
self pastmaster in the art. As the
soldiers and sailors returned, fur
ious at defeat and the lies of the
kaiser during the last year of the
war In hiding the true conditions of
the great struggle from them, they
fell upon the royal possessions and
helped themselves, stealing every
thing of value they could lay their
But were those Germans to blame?
They merely practiced, when they
got back to Berlin, what kultur had
taught them to do in every foreign
land where they set their invading
feet. The only difference was they
spared their own women and girls.
In their act of thieving we have an
other example of retribution the
Huns merely went home to roost.
Their burglary was not, of course,
the super-vandalism taught by their
former masters who were not en
gineering the destruction.
Such conduct should enable the
Germans to see themselves as oth
ers see them and prove to them the
old truth that chickens will come
home to roost.
The Hun leaders sent Lenlne and
Trotsky into Russia to disrupt that
country. The plot succeeded so well
that the bloody doctrine of Bolshe
vlklsm sown by those two hirllngs
has receded to Germany and now
the Boche empire Is reeking with
revolution. The rumblings of dis
content and anarchy have steadily
grown ever since the flight of the
ex-kalser and with yesterday's threat
of the haughty Bavarians to march
in force upon Berlin, promises well
to flame Into a civil war of no small

duction ot Viator Hugo's Immortal
story, Los Mlserablea.
This picture Is well termed "stu

Ing of tho remarkable story ot the
conflict ot man with humanity and
humanity's half barbarous laws.
In the character ot Jean Valjenn,
Mr. Farnum gives a portrayal that
leaves one believing that ho walked
out ot the book. The hard side of
the man la shown In all his revenue

caused lilm to serve 19 years at hard
labor for stealing a lost ot bread for
his starving rolntlves. And the
after side, when lie, having chang
ed his name end becomes wealthy, Is
lending a helping hand to every one
around him. Then, too, the wonder
ful spirit that makes him renounce
the few joys he has had In life Is

When Connecticut. In 1788, ceded
her western lands to the United States,
she reserved a large tract adjoining
Pennsylvania, now forming several
counties In the northeastern ' part ot
Ohio. From this the region came to
be called "the Western Reserve." The
reservation by Connecticut only lasted
a few years, as In 1800 she completed
the transfer ot all the lands to the
United States. The Western Reserve

DAN CUPID LOSES CASE
The department of justice will
shortly recommend to congress the
deportation of 3,000 or 4,000 aliens
now Interned in the United States.
Special legislation will be necessary
to accomplish this, as there is, of
course, no law at present covering
" The further suggestion is made
that the subsequent return of any of
these undesirables to this country,
whose hospitality they have abused
shall be made Impossible. '

Court Does Not Consider Call of
Romance Strong Enough.
Dan Cuold lost his case before
Judge Andy Calhoun In the city court
at Atlanta. Ga.
Just as the Judge was about to pro
nounce sentence on a young woman
who had been arraigned on a charge
of vagrancy, a soldier stepped forth
from the audience and announced
that he wished to marry the accused
Tonna woman. Mrs. Maybelle Laver,
the defendant, smiled her assent, and
the court halted bis sentence.
But Assistant Solicitor Ed Hill ob
jected. He remarked to the court
that nothing was known of the young
woman, and that she might be per
mitted to commit bigamy; that she
mleht already have a husband.
Mrs. Laver admitted that she bad
been twice married, but insisted that j
she Is free now. She said she had
been married In Florida, but would
not give the name of the . town In
which she had lived, nor any further
Judge Calhoun did not consider the
call of romance strong enough, and
declined the request of the soldier.
He proceeded to sentence Mrs. Laver
to spend six months In the county
home for girls.

It Is a salutary thing to regret past
errors and sincerely resolve not to fall
Into them again, but It Is a foolish and
most dangerous thing to brood over
mlhtakea we have made, sins we have
committed. Brooding cannot possibly
lead to healthy-minded action. Its
tendency, rather Is to' develop a state
of mind that may pass over Into In
sanity. Yet many people indulge in
this dangerous luxury ot brooding. Par
ticularly is this likely to be the case
with people to whom life has not been
as kind as It might have been.
