Slav peril, nnd of being forced Into war. One
fact remains. Ever since the victory over
Frulico her purpose lias been to attain wot Id
supremacy. For 33 years the German Kaiser
was preparing for this very thing. He built up
his formidable war machine. lie united, and
Impatiently, for the tlmo to strike. The Austrian-Servian
Imbroglio presented the long-desired
opportunity. Then 1m shook his fist at
tho civilized world, and stnited to spread Ger
man culture with battalions and bullets For
years tho Kaiser has hnd his spies working In
all countries. I know this to bo a fact. I have
a friend who was intimately connected in thu
spy system of tho German Government. He
told mo, for Instance, that the Kaiser had spies
throughout the United States before the Spanish-American
war. He was lather on the fence
as to what stand he'd take, and he wanted to
ascertain the feeling of our German citizens
Ho was told by his spies that every one of the
3,(W,000 subjects of German birth In this coun
try would take up arms If necessary against
tho Fatherland In defense of tho United States.
This was tine, nnd I believe Is still true Re
lieved of the obsemlon nnd urso of militarism
the German is the finest citizen In the world.
Perhaps tho annihilation of t war inaehln
will mean real civilization for Germany.
"Talking of tho Franco-Prussian war recalls
some Interesting things. I had Intended, the
year tho war broke out, to go and see the pas

"At that time I developed mi absolute lack
of fear a 9ort of contempt for disease. Na

ot African soldiers. They were, mighty poor
fighters. Following the Gorman army, I met
hundreds of these pilsoners ns they were
brought In. A horrible form of smalI-po
spread among them they went down by the
hundreds. Yet I mingled with them, talked
about tho wnr and served thorn with cups of
beer and sandwiches. Of course, I didn't get
the dlsense, and I've never feared disease

the result will bo. And on this side we all
