WHERE THE MILITARY EXPERTS FAILED.
Germany is, or was, the greatest military nation in
the .world. - It was a nation of soldiers trained by men
who had made of military matters a science and devoted
their lives to its study. When this country entered the
war the militarists of Prussia made light of the inci
dent. They told the kaiser that it was a matter of little
concern since they would have Europe subjugated before
we could become an effective force in the conflict. It was
not possible, they said, for the United States to transport
across the ocean an army of any considerable size, and,
what was still more important, it would require at least
three years of hard, well directed work to form an Am
erican army that would be able to meet the veterans of
Germany. Before that time, they argued, the war would
be decided in their favor in Europe and they would be
able to punish America for its impertinance and a pre
sumption in taking sides against the world-conquering
Prussian. These war experts were wrong, like so many ex
perts are because they had looked too long at the situa
tion from a single viewpoint.
The United States has been in the war but eignteen
i purposes to have a heavy toll of prisoners and guns before
he will allow Von Hindenburg s shattered hosts to cross
the Rhine into their own territory. ' .
The Germans are fighting only rear guard actions;
and by making no determined stand before LeCateau in
dicate they have no intention of clinging to any part of
France beyond the Maubeuge line. Maubeuge is the
southernmost protective link in the defenses the Germans
have constructed for safeguarding their hold upon the
Meuse line in Belgium. If the British and Americans suc
ceed in driving the Germans from Maubeuge, the line of
retreat would be along the Sambre river, which joins the
Meuse at Namur. Namur, in its turn, is the southern key
to Liege and guards the military passageway from Bel
gium into Germany. .
The Anglo-American wedge, therefore, which is now
moving relentlessly upon LeCateau, has but to continue
its present northeasterly direction in a straight line to
reach liege. This is the ultimate objective of the pres
ent movement. It thus has a relationship with the Ameri
can operations north of Verdun, which are moving down
th Meuse to close the Luxemburg exit out of France. If
the Americans from Verdun follow the Meuse along its
course and the Americans in Picardy continue the pres
ent direction of their advance pust Maubeuge, the two
armies will join forces at Namur. That is not an im
possibility, but may well occur in the not far distant

against, odds. They constitute the finest body of men
Jthat ever marched to martial music since time began.
Give them a' fair show and they are inconquerable. There
is -a moral in the military achievements 3f this country.
The United States sent men, not trained puppets, reared
in the freedom of democratic institutions, who can think as
well as fight and know, without being told by an auto
cratic .ruler what they are fighting for and what their
duty to their government is.
- A real democracy cannot be conquered, although
sometimes defeated and overwhelmed by sheer force.
France is an example of the indomitable spirit of dem
ocracy, and history tells the story of. how free men fight
from the time the Spartan Leonidas held the pass against
the Persian conquerer down to the presnt conflict. What
would Great Britain have done in this war without her
free, prosperous and contented coloniesCanada, Austra
lia and New Zealand? e
' Trained or untrained in military tactics, the United
States has just as many efficient soldrers as it has citizens
of adult age, and always will have as long i as the Stars
and Stripes stand for those things worth living to possess
and dying, if necessary, to maintain.
THE CALL FROM BLEEDING EUROPE.
' : The stones of Prussian frightfulness and the ven
geance their retreating hordes are wreaking upon north
ern France and Belgium shows that they are not yet
licked into a sense of ordinary' respect for the approved
usages of modern civilization. They have got a whole lot
more coining to them in the way of punishment, and the
surest means of seeing they get it is to buy Liberty
bonds over here in order to send more soldiers and more
munitions across the seas. Even those persons who have
been evading their full duty in the matter of buying
bonds, who know in their own hearts that they are slack
ers should be aroused by the stories of fire and destruc
tion, plunder and brutality that are coming from the
smoking battle areas of Europe. The man or woman
who loves money so much that these calls for help awak
en no genuine response is of little value" as a citizen of
this or any other civilized nation.
Really, it wouldn't do to hurry up that investigation

The chilly wind begins to sing, it's been on ice, I trow;
the overcoat I soaked last spring would be a blessing now.
But it will have to stay in pawn; the cost of living's high,
and all my bank account is gone, there's not a kopeck
nigh. The wailing winds of which you've heard blow
cold across the lea; gone southward is the dicky-bird that
used to sing to me; the gentle flowers are in the hole, o'er
thir dead stalks I weep; and in the elm tree's hollow
bole the aardvark lies asleep. The night wind has a dis
mal note, a sort of piercing whine; and I. bewail the over
coat my uncle has in brine. The clouds are hanging low
today "there is a threat of rain; the trees are gaunt and
blue and gray, and in the blast complain. The leaves are
flying everywhere, they spar and swoop like bats; and all
the chill October air seems full of dust and hats.. As
though it had a human throat, that cold wind pipes its
tune; alas, the good Old overcoat I soaked the tenth of
June ! Oh, other men may face the storm, the biting, arc
tic breeze, and keep their slats and innards warm, but I
must shake and freeze. In my sad grange that has no
moat, all winter I must stay, and wish I had the overcoat

a little after seven. 8o Beckley wasn't
so far off.
Ruth felt stunned. Had things gone
so far that Brian neglected his business,
lemaiiA'd away from the office the en
tire afternoon, to be with Stollie King?
"Where did you lunch, Brian? " she
asked very quietly. Too quietly, Brian
thought. Her voice sounded ominous.
"At' the Brevort."
Suddenly Ruth knew what to do. She
woul,l not upbraid him. tHliv would not
allow him to think that she thought him
guilty of any wrong neither was she
at all sura in Iter ow n wind that he had
wronged her in any way,
"I wish you had called me up and
asked mo down there too. I, should
have enjoyed it immensely."
Brian was so takvn aback he couldn 't
speak for a minute, then he said gruff
ly: "How did I know your boss was go

day. I can always tate an hour or
a little more. When you have time to

more freely. Was she going to bo nice
about it? He hnd been afraid of a

have known that ahp would make no

they got home he'd catch it. How he

The waiter came with their order,
and while Brian ate what Be had order
ed ,ho noticed that Ruth ate scarcely a
thing. And he had told him that sbv
was hungry. She asked for coffee with
her dinner and drunk two strong cups.
Something she had never done before,
and consequently Brian looked upou it
as added proof that she waa trying to
hold back tho k-ctnre ho was to get
when they reached home; she was brac
ing up on coffee. So he expressed it
in his own thoughts. v -.

Ruth als0 could not help but wondor,
as sho pretended to eat, and occasionnly
made a remark about lomeone near

no money; that he was 'broke' as ho
told hor before they left home. Sho
had given him ten dollars the night be
fore, perhaps ho had not found it. Ho
had on tho same clothes. She would
ask hiin. It wasn't the money! If he

had told him.
"Why, I slipped a ten dollar bill in
your vest pocket last night! You re

look at Brian's face there was no need
