This branch of Hit Red Cross will take up Ihc

the front) will give tlictn such advise as they may
require along the lines of maintaining the propel'
morale of their homes, while the head of the family
is away lighting for home and country. It will give
legal advise and other assistance where it may be
necessary, and will do this cheerfully, freely and
gladly, as all the Red Cross work is done.
Although it is a charitable organization in a

wav, it is to be distinctly understood that any
services that are given must be solicited by tin
household for which Ihey are intended, as the
Civilian Relief does not intend tw intrude itself on
any household where it is not wanted.
There are many homes now which need advise,
(not linancial assistance) in matters of how to live
how to dress and how to keep employed so that
these things may be done, and this is the work that
the Civilian Relief is intended for and will do. Call
on them if you need help of any kind and yon will
find that they are willing and ready to help you
Write To Your Soldier Boy Over There
From the man who commands "our hoys - in
France comes this message: "Let everyone who
has a loved one on this side, write, write, write
Send long, cheerful letters, telling not of great
events but of the happenings in the home thing
about friends and all the things that look little
to the folks at home, but which the soldiers like to
read about. Then, again, don't wait for a reply
Replies may not always be prompt, but let the
letters from home be very prompt."
Kepeated stories are being told of the absolute
joy with which mail is received on the other side
The messages from home, telling of the little inti
mate things that are happening, mean more than
anything else in the world to "(he boys" in the
The importance of writing letters to 1he boy
over there" cannot be overstattd. It is just as
much a part of the work necessary for a victory as
is the shipping of arms and ammunition. The
morale of our troops must be kept up. They need
your help. They need the inspiration Ihat comes
troiu friendly words lroni home.
They are, in a large measure, strangers in n
strange land. ,They are in the midst of death and
desolation. Thev have a tremendously hard task
to do, and they are doing that task for us for
youand for me. It is only a small thing for them
to ask, but a very necessary thing for us to do
to write, and write frequently.
And when you send letters, sec to it that you
write and direct these letters in such a way as
to insure their delivery. The American Postal
Service in France thus urges relatives of Ameri
can soldiers to exercise extreme fare in directing
mail to the troops abroad.
"Given names should be written in full. Re
turn address should be given, and ink should al
ways be used. Lead pencil writing often becomes
illegible in transit."
General Pershing singles this one thing out as
amongst the most vital services that the people
of America can render to "the boys" over there.
So write! Write! WHITE ! and then write
They Have Given Up Hope.
A head line in the paper reads: "The Imperial
German Military Council has given up hope that
they will be able to score a great victory this year,
and so will prepare for the winter of 19181919."
We wonder if they are making any plans for
themselves after the war is concluded, not with
a "German made peace", but with peace terms
which will be dictated by the Allies. It would be
well for them to consider this phase of the situa
tion, for this is what will come to pass, whether
it be this year, next year or ten years thereafter
The Allied nations have made up their minds
that Germany must pay and pay heavily for all
the outrages which they have committed on poor
France and Belgium and all the rest of the world,
and if the Kaiser and Council could get the fact
through their thick skulls that they are whipped
now, it would be a great deal better for them and
for the whole mass of the German people.

Germany9 s Confession
(Continued from Ia8t week)
England's Guilt a Fiction
Von Jagow's reply to the Prince
only served to make matters worse.
His admission that England had not
brought on the war enraged the Pan
German press. It was seized upon
triumphantly by the Socialists. The
Socialist organ, Vorwaerts, says:
"Let us establish the facts.
The war was not popular in England;
It also was not popular in Russia and
France. But it has become popular.
The whole world right away across
the Atlantic and the Pacific is unit
ed in hatred against us. We, how
ever, have for almost four years been
inouluted with the view that 'Eng
land laid all the mines which caused
the war' a view which the Secre
tary of the State (Von Jagow), in
accordance with the evidence of the
ambassador (Prince Liqhnowsky),
has now declared to be false! It is,
however, by this false view that the
whole war policy of the German Em
pire has been directed from the de
claration of unrestricted submarine
warfare, which brought us war with
America, down ,to those chancellor
speeches which say that Belgium
must not again become England's
area of military concentration. If all
the parties concerned were convinced
that the belief in England's guilt fs
a. fiction, why did they feed this be
lief, and why did they pursue a pol
icy w,hich was based upon it?" And
the paper concluded: "The German
people can not bo satisfied with the
methods of governing exercised be
fore and during the war. ThU
German people can only endure after
the war as a pcaco loving nation that
Germany's Place In the Sun
But to the American reader, the
most important part of Prince hkh
nowsky's exposure is not his con
clusion that Germany forced a do
claration of war. We have long be
lieved that. Our German sympath
izers have largely admitted it. But
thy have pleaded that the Kaiser de
clared war only because war was in
evitable; that Germany was denied
her "plate in the sun"; that a con
pplracy of France, Russia, and Great
Britain prevented her from obtain
ing colonyies and extending her trade
and triat, consequently, Germany had
either to take up arms or be thrott
led to death by Great Britain's trade
enmity. Many of us have been per
suaded that these excuses are true
excuses; that the British policy com
pelled Germany's appeal to the
sword, and that Britain's allies are
merely "pulling Britain chestnuts
out of the fire," as the German pro
pi gandists 'are continually charging.
Of those procured lies, Prince Lich
nowsky's memoirs give a very happy
It has been pleaded that the policy
of France and England In Morocco
was anti-German. Prince Lichno
wsky writes: "Our obscure policy
in Morocco has repeatedly caused
distrust of our peaceful intention, or,
at least, had raised doubts as to
whether we knew what we wanted,
or whether our intention was to keep
Europe in a state of suspense, and,
on occasion, to humiliate, the French.
An Austrian colleague, who was a
long time in Paris, said to me, 'The
French had begun to forget "la re
vanche" ((their desire to avenge Alsace-Lorraine).
You have regularly
reminded them of it by transiting on
their toes.' After we had declined
Delcasse's (the French minister's)
offer to come to an agreement re
garding Morocco and then solemnly
declared that we had no political in
terest there, we suddenly discovered
in Abdul A.iz a second Kruger. To
him also, as to the Boers, we promi
sed the protection of the mighty Ger
man Empire, and with the same res
Iiolh manifestations concluded as
they were bound to conclude, with a
retraction, if we were not prepared
to start a world war. our
attitude furthered the Russian-Japanese
and the Russian-British ulli
anccs. in the face of the German
peril' all other considerations fadinl
into the background.. The possibil
ity of another war between France
and Germany had been evident, and
siu-h a war tould not leave out Rus
sia or England, as in 1870.
Before Delcasse's fall, and before
the Algeciras conference, we could
have obtained harbors and bases on
the west coast of Africa, but that
was no longer possible."

Needs by Mahelona Hospital
J. M. LYDGATE
The reference In another column of
the Machelona Haspital and its needs
in the way of interest and entertain
ment, calls attention to the grave need
that there Is for care, education and
training, especially for the children
there. There are, I understand 15 or
16 children there with more coming
who are there more or less prmanon
antly; and always children are bound
to be a permanent and important fac
tor of that institution.
In their homes these children would,
be attending school, and would, in
some measure at least, be" preparing
themselves for self-support and use
fulness in life. Because of their seg
regation, largely in the interests of
the general public, they are debar
red from the priveliges and benefits
of education; but surely their rights
are not thereby annuled, and surely
they are entitled to consideration
in this respect. Farther more, may
it not be the part of econmic wisdom
as well as justice and humanity to
make provisions thus for their mental
well-being, as provision is being made
for their physical well-being. To
tufn them out on the public, mentally
incompetent and dependent, will sur
ely be a doubtful blessng to the pub
lie as well as to themselves.
A band of active, mischievous.
more or less undiscuplined children"
turned loose in an institution like
that, with nothing to do, bcomes very
soon a very serious problem of man
agement and control; a problem that
must be solved in some satisfactory
way, or there is trouble in the wind.

Keep them occupied and out of
