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 future. tin th. liquor. The minister laid his , evidence boforo the V mted.

With The British Armies in France, Oct. 11. A detachment of German cyclists was brought up near Premont early yestcr- day morning to lead a project- ed attack. Some doughbovs and Tommies filtered past the spot where the Germans were waiting. After , thoy had got some distance be- yond they discovered the boches and started back to take them prisoner. About the same time other infantrymen, coming up from the opposite direction, spot- ted the Germans, A wild race ensued with the Germans as a prize. The result, according to the prisoners themselves, was about a dead heat. ii Rippling Rhymes f by Wa.lt Mason AUTUMN CHILL'.

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 of Joe Keller before election. An exposure of his pet's op erations might have a bad effect on the executive's chances at the polls 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.

It was now only 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 ing to give you the afternoon? "1 have to lunch somewhere every day. I can always tate an hour or a little more. When you have time to go to a really niuo- place I wish you would call me up and 'ask me to meet you." "All right! I will," he breathed more freely. Was she going to bo nice about it? He hnd been afraid of a scene. Yet, knowing Ruth, In? should have known that ahp would make no scene in a public place. Perhaps when they got home he'd catch it. How he hated that fool, Beckley, meddlesome boob. 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 -. , In one way he was right. Ruth trem bled so she could scarcely control her- wh. sn furiously iealous. was hard. She had asked for the coffee to help steady her nerves. Ruth als0 could not help but wondor, as sho pretended to eat, and occasionnly made a remark about lomeone near them; if that was the reason Brian had 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 spent it', every cent of it, on himself, sho would have laughed at lum for Ins boyish foolishenss; but to take the mon ey, sliw had earned how could she ap proach the subject. She couldn't ask Mm point blank if he had done as she suspected. She tried to chat unconcernedly about peopK near them, and Brian was so thankful for her forbearance that he seconded hor in such a way that they both. breathe more easily. Their dinner as ordered would take about all of the five dollis, including th tip. "I believe I could eet a baked alas ka," uth finally said. She had selected the moat expensive dessert shw could think of. Brian flushed again, looked uncom fortable, then blurted out : "Wo haven't money enough! I told you we had betcr not coree tn sues a place as this with only five dollars." "But wo didn't!" she almost held hor breath, so anxious was Blie for the result of her litle rus-. "What do you mean?" more pleas antly. Ruth perhaps had more than she had told him. "Why, I slipped a ten dollar bill in your vest pocket last night! You re member you said you were out of mon ey," the last words dragged. After one look at Brian's face there was no need to tell her. Ruth knew. "I spent that!" he said. Then "Gad, Ruth! let's go home. I'm sick of this! Tf I have to give an account of every cent I spvnd.'I 11 " (Tomorrow Brian Becomes Angry And In Anxious To Go Home.)
