Corncobs, it develops, are good for something besides
pipes or fuel. Heretofore they have been on of the grat
est waste stuffs in American agriculture. Of the billions
of bushels of corn produced every year most of the cobs
have been thrown away.
Now the Department of Agriculture reports that al
most the whole cob can be converted into valuable sub
stances. More than one third of it can be made into
crystalline glucose, which has many uses, one of which
is the manufacture of alcohol. By a newly discovered
process 45 per cent of the cob can be transformed into

TRY THEM FOR MURDER.
" From London comes the assurance that
Hohenzollern, former kaiser of Germany, and 71 of his
accomplices are to be tried before an international tri-
bunal but. that instead of being made to face outright the
charge of murder, they will be accused of simpler and
minor crimes for which the supreme, penalty will be exile,
t,r sole confinement.
All verv fine and regular, but what's the use?
The world needs no formal trial to be convinced of the
puilt of the kaiser and his aides, the Allies least of all
When thev took up arms against Germany the Allies,
France, England, Italy, United States and a score of les
ser nowers thereby issued their judgment. They condemn
ed the German government as guilty and not only of in
descriminate violation of the rules of civilized warfare,
but they returned the verdict of murder against Wilhelm
and his underlings.
To call unon an international coui't to fix the respon
sibility for the war we are but casting doubt in the face
F thp cw arations we made udoii entering tne war. ino
court on earth could convince us of Wilhelm's innocence
The violation of Belgium's neutrality is already an es
tablished fact and no court sentence is necessary to send
the guilty to St. Helena on that score.
If Wilhelm and his gang of arch-criminals are to be
' tried they should be tried as individuals and lor murder.
Let them justify if they can, the ravaging of Belgian and
French women and girls, the execution of Edith Cavill,
the ruthless slaughter of women and children and other
ron-combatants such as lost their lives in the sinking of
Let them justify those atrocities, or pay in kind. To
submerge these crinuos under accusations of technical
violations is but to mock justice.

Whoever said, "Revenge is sweet,'' had no experience
with foes; his guess was wrong, yet men repeat his idle
words in verse and prose. If sonic one docs you grievous
wrong, you'd like to rend him limb from limb; perhaps
for years you yearn and long to throw the harpoon into
Lim The vengeful thoughts you entertain don't do you
any good at all; kindness alone is safe and sane, old sores
sre poor things to recall. Perhaps at last you have the
chance to punit.li him who did you harm; you prod him
with your poisoned lance, and find the trick has little
charm. In fact, you feel as small and mean, when you
have squared an ancient "hate," as though you'd run a
submarine for Wilhelm. Prussia's castoff skate. Bill
Johnsng swiped my pointer pup, and ran the blamed

for half an hour, I saw how vain were loud laments; I
paid aloud, "Revenge is sour; the pup was worth but
twenty cents!" My fies may hand me jolt and jar, I do
not let my blue blood boil; forgetfulness is better fr.r th?.n
