SAY THEY WERE "HUM-BUGGED"
.The German newspapers are angry and express their
keen disappointment over the unsatisfactory treaty made
with Rumania, They claim Austria-Hungary has receiv
ed the lions share of the most valuable Rumanian terri
tory, in "the correcting of her frontiers," while Germany
"has to shoulder billions of war debt. They also say the
petroleum agreement is "an absolute swindle", by which
the banks profit, but not the German people. It is also
asserted that while Germany is to get grain from Ru
mania it is at usurious prices and that Rumania is grab
bing the main part of these in the way of export duties.
This it is claimed reverses the natural order of things
when Germany makes a treaty, and instead of Rumania
saving indemnities that task is laid on German should-
ers. A memoer or me reicnsiag repuaieu mese state
ments before his colleagues recently and added "the
German people have been sadly hum-bugged, and when
their eyes are opened they will heap maledictions on the
heads of those who drafted the treaty." As the Germans
have so far refused to have their eyes opened it may be
some time before the "heaping of maledictions" will be
come due. If the claims made are true it must be indeed
aggravating to the German mind to know that for once
German diplomacy and greed were over-reached and the
ration that assumes to itself the right to dictate to the
balance of the world got the worst of the settlement with
a conquered people. And yet, it is pleasing to know that
our Tuton enemies are sore over the. division of the plun
der. The most important feature of the matter however
is overlooked as under the recent "treaty" with Austria
Germany benevolently assimilated that little side mon
archy, and that whatever inures to Austria's benefit real
Jy belongs to the kaiser. '

The most pathetic thing about the capture of the vil
lage of Metern. by the Scots in the recent drive of the
allies is that they deceived the Huns. The latter justly
complaind that the victory was "unfair and won by a
confidence trick." The attack was made in such a man
ner that the Huns were led to believe a gas attack was
to be made and the Huns were putting on their gas masks
entirely unsuspicious of any infantry attack, when look
ing up from their trenches they found the Scots standing
above them and having them covered wjth their, rifles.
The Scots, they claimed, had not played fair because
they had changed the usual program. It is not pathetic
however to 4iear the Huns prating of "unfairness," but
If the allies keep up their good work there may be
considerable to celebrate next Tuesday besides the open

borhood can do a whole lot of extra celebrating on that
day if the occasion calls for it, and it is earnestly hoped

- The long delayed rain put in its appearance yester
day and it sure "sprinkled" some. It may have done some
damage to hay, but it will help the orchards and start the
fall pasturage in fine shape. The potato and other veg
etable crops will also be greatly benefitted.
The German soldiers are now convinced their leaders
have been lying to them. They were told there are a mil
lion Yankees in France, but are ready to swear since the
latter were turned loose on them along the Marne that
ten million would be nearer the proper figure.
General Hell is in command of the German army in
the Soissons-Marne salient. Certainly he should feel at
home there with the French and Yanks closing in on
An Amsterdam dispatch says the German press is

Now the French and British soldiers who have held
the foe so long, who have wrestled till they're weary with
a foeman fierce and strong, hear the sweet reverbrations
tf the Yankee Doodle song our boys are marching on.
They come marching from the prairies, from the woods
and templed hills, they are marching from the farmsteads
and the city's roaring mills, and they've set their hearts
on bringing back the scalp of Kaiser Bill our boys are
he has conducted an educational campaign, and the Ger-
juan soldiers now know a great deal more than they did
it short week ago. It may be the drive that is to bring
peace, but it is noted that it is headed toward Berlin,
which at least is suggestive of where the peace will be
for peace. If Hindenburg has accomplished nothing else (Yankee hosts to scorn; all dependence on our helping was
an Allied nope lonorn; but our teet will soon be treading
on the sore All-Highest corn our boys are marching on.
We could never cross the ocean, they would get us while
afloat, they would sink our loaded vessels with the under
water boat, but a million boys have landed, keen to get
the Prussian goat our boys are marchineon. Soon
they'll put some pep and ginger in that weary, dragging
wiap, tiiey win suow uie nonen-iiinaens wnat we mean
by western snap, and if they can catch the kaiser they
will spoil his frowning map our boys are marching on.
They are marching from the village; from the forest and
the mart, every one with high ambition in his young and
dauntless heart, they are out to can the kaiser and they
'll finish what they start our boys are marching on.
At last the war has been felt drectly on American
Foil. Sunday a submarine attacked a flotilla of coal bar
ges off the Massachusetts coast, and one of the shells
fired by the U-boat fell a mile inland. Three other shells
buried themselves in the sands of the beach. No damage
was done, but the impudent Prussian who thus hurled his
shells on American soil has roiled the eagle and will get
a swahm of eaglets after him as will make him regret his
"The World do move." It seems but a short time
tince General Crook was chasing the Apache chief, Cer
onimo and Cachise over the deserts of Arizona, and now
a company of these same Apaches is doing scouting ser
vice with Pershing and chasing the Hun. Having be
come partly civilized they realize their former foolishness
and also the state of savagry of the Prussian, with whom
they are doing laudable missionary work.

that he would better have told tho story
of this storm. Mr. Vaiuloveit hag seen

therefore, nuielt longer a member of the
Salem Methodist church socf
This lone storm reminds mc of a 6'oiy
of some forty five yoars ago when 1
first camo to the statu.
At that date aud earlier great flocks
of wild geese would migrate across the)

injtly large stories were in circulation!
Well, aa old timer related what 1 had:

one year these migrations were wonder-j
ful to see. Said ho saw a floek fly ov

miles long and so' dense thut it hid the

Joe mcranie serimis, studied a minute
and then said: ".Well, Well, Well, now
you may take out nine miles out of
the thinnest of them, but, by Jove, .1
will stick to one milo.
That was indeed a great storm for
Morow county au,l something new, and
we may be right thankful that it did
not extend wide over the state.

To my delight, Mr. and Mrs. Bab
cock were to visit us. That is, Mrs.
Bab?ock was coining with her husband
and they woulj spend the two days
they were in town, with us.
"Shall we give a little dinner for
themf " I asked George as soon as we
hoard that Mrs. Balncoct. was surely
" Ves a small one. We 'll ask Can

and Gcruldine Koss- (enfiold
and Hubert are on the board, and will
appreciate meeting Mrs. liaibcock, nail
you will feel more comfortable if we
have Bert ami Ueraldine."
"I certainly shall! What a nice par
ty we will kive. Just ten of us. 1
will make out the menu ami let you
aee it. What shall wo do tho first
"Nothing, I think. You must re
member that Mr. and Mrs. Bnbcock are
not ais young as you are. 1 think we
will dine quietly, then have some music
afterward. You can ask Mertou Gray
to drop in and help out, if you like
He might be willing-"
"Certainly I will if you like," I
replied, flushing a little as 1 always
did when his name was mentioned. 1
often thought of Merton Gray find -his
declaration of love for nie. 1 was so
happy, that he had continued to be mj
friend even after I had told him it
was impossible for me to care for any
ono save Georue. Yet, at times, I felt
a sudden embarrassment when Georgo
spoke of him.
MERTON GRAY AC'EPTS.
After George loft,! vailed Merton up
"I am coiinr to ask a favor," I
said after we had talked a moment,
"It 'a already granted."
"Mr. and Mrs. Batacock of Chicago,
business friend of George's, are tn
spend a couple of davs with us. They
are very musical. Would it be asking
too much for you to drop around, Wed
nesday evening, and help mo entertain
4 ' No, indeed! I shall be delighted to
do so. Shall I Ibriug my violin"
Ever sinto I first met Merton Gray,
hoi had liee-n so willing to do anything
to givo me pleasure, that it is no won
dor I liked him. That he was con
sidered rather a lion, and that hostesses
vied with.ealch other to secure mm
at dinners or other social attairs, or
coursa did not inake mo less pleased
that he never refused my invitations.
It would not have been natural.
They were to arrivo in the morn
ing, and 1 proposea tnai i go w i"u
station in the ar and meet Mrs. Bab-
"He may want to go directly to
the office with you, and it may please
her to'havo mc meet her," I said.
"It surely '' will, Goovgo replied.
"Sho is just the kind to appreciate
such an attention. That sho is so
much older than you are, is all the
AGAIN HELEN PLEASES HER
That was all George said about my
offer to go to the station, but 1 knew
liy his nianner that .1 had pleased
him by proposing it. And, as always,
wheu 1 knew I hud accomplished that
dive seemingly impossible thing, I was
happy. So l ' went singing about the

James about the service, and making up
'l had determined to have a very
simple dinner; the first night they
came, when wo were to dine alone,
but the next night, when we pave the
dinner party, as finished a dinner as 1
could ipuaibly give.
I fussed an hour in the guest, room,
altho Annie always kept it in perfect
order. I carried some little things
from mv own boudoir to make it more
homelike, and put a couple Of late
magazines beside the reading llamp.
Before I wen to the station the morn
ing of their arrival, 1 would put fresh
flowers in tho vases, and then it would
I was verv proud of my beautiful
home, nowaday. At first I had not
cared so much for it, as it was asso
ciated in mv mind with my efforts to
be a social" success; with my failure
to please George, with my need for
instruction, and my rebellion. I had
otten told Evelyn that I would rather
live in a littlo' cottage and not be a
society woman at ell, than to have
my lovely home and have to be thinking
all the time whether I ould live up
to it. She -would laugh and tell me
to wait a while that some day I would
be pro! of my home proud to be its
mistress. , , .
She had ibeen right. I WAS proud
of mv lovely home. It was neither
quit 'so large nor ao elaborate as Mrs.
BalKfoek's, ut it was delightfully com
plete in every particular, thank to
George. Mv servant wero well train

So I had no worry on any score

An adhesion has two ends, by

also being broad or narrow.
Usually the broader and more ex
