Now that Secretary Baker has
been forced to make public our

is enabled to change his plans ac

you are trying to get ahead a bit j
financially, that it isn't so muchf
what you earn that counts its
what you save.
The wise man knows much and

spilling the beans like a certain
senator from Oregon.
The two-bits you spend for a
savings thrift stamp sticks to you
just as long as the stamp sticks
to the thrift card upon which you
stick it. And still the two-bits
goes on doing its bit for Uncle
Sam and the boys "over there."

The people of the United States
are beginning to learn the truth con
cerning the conduct of the war by
Germany. Proof in offered that Ger
man officials deliberately lied in
their statements concerning atroci
ties committed by the Belgians and
allies. 'That their own soldiers were
disgusted by the cruelties practiced
at the order of high officers of the
kaiser is shown. Extracts taken
from pamphlets issued follow:
Tho Vorwnerts of Berlin, October 2'.',
"We have already born nolo to es
tablish tho falseness of a great number
of assertions which have been iniule
with great precision and published
everywhere In the press, concerning al
leged cruelties committed, by the popu
lations of Hie countries with which
Germany Is at war, upon German sol
diers and civilians. We are now In po
sition to silence two others of tlie.se
"The war correspondent of the Her
liner Tageblatt spoke a few week
ago of cigars and cigarettes lllled with
powder alleged to havo been given out
or sold to our soldiers with diabolical
Intent. He even pretended that he hud
seen with his own eyes hundreds of
tills kind of clgiireltes. We learn from
an authentic source that this story of
cigars and cigarettes Is nothing but a
brazen invention. Stories of Holdlers
whose eyes are alleged to havo been
torn out by frnncH-tlreurs are circulat
ed throughout' Germany.'- Not a Blngle
ense of this kind has been ofllclully es
"It matters little that reports of this
nature bear ah' uppearnnce'of positive
certitude, or(ore oven vouched for by
eye-wltnesBei.' The desire for notoriety,
the absence of criticism, and personal
error play an unfortiinuto port in tho
days In which we are living. Every
nose shot off or simply bound up,
every eye removed, Is Immediately
transformed Into a noso or eyo torn

In regard to these reports, their abso
lute falsity lias been demonstrated. At
length these reports were concentrated
lit (Iross lilchterfetde. A newspaper
published at noon mid widely circu
lated lu Merlin printed it few days ago
In large typo the news that at the
Lazaretto of t.lchterfelde iilouo there
were 'ten German .soldiers, only slight
ly wounded, whose eyes hud been wick
edly torn out.' Hut to a request for
Information by Comrade I.lebknecht
tho following written reply was sent
by the chief inedlnil otlleer of tho
nbove-inentloned Held hospital, dated
the eighteenth of the month :
'"Sir: Happily there Is no truth
whatever In these stories.
'IMIOFHSSOU UAl'THNHHItO,' "
German Soldiers Protested.
Thus the teachings of the German
War Hook and of the German apostles
of frlghtfulness, suspicion and hatred,
had now begun to hear their iatiiral
fruit. Hut tho voice of protest was
not entirely llcnt. A considerable
number of letters by German .soldiers
who were shocked by the Gorman
atrocities were sent to Ambassador
Gerard, because he was the representa
tive of the Called States, tho leading
neutral nation. The three letters
which follow, lu translation, were re
ceived by the American ambassador
from German soldiers.
Here Is the protest of a German sol
dier, an eye-witness of tho slaughter of
ItusMnn soldiers In the Masurian lakes
and swamps :
"It was frightful, heart-rending, as
:hese masses of human beings were
driven to destruction? Above the ter
rible thiunbr of the cannon could In'
