Mr. Mason rose, pacing the room.
"I was sent to Germany to school nt the age
of C. AVhen I was 10 I was studying at Frank-fort-on-the-Moln.
I lived in a pension kept
by a professor. Wo were near the frontier
and saw the Franco-Prussian war at Its In
coptton. Tho Germans went to war with a
grim determination-!! .savagery of purpose that
Impressed nnd terrified me, young as I was.
Well, after the tlrst battles they began bringing
tho wounded nnd prisoners to tho city. With
other school children I went out and carried
sandwiches and beer to the wounded soldiers.
Tho tales tho Frenchmen told of tho cruelty of
tho tf ei mans wero ghastly. It came to mo
then the thought that this nation would some
day precipitate a world war, and endeavor to
secure world supremacy, nnd that the brutal

Tho carnage, the raging war-hunger, the
