JAMES W. QEISRD
' James W. Gerard, United States Ambassador to Germany.
"The best loved ambassador from
America who ever won the heart of
Berlin" that is how Ambassador
James W. Gerard was considered in
the German capital at first, according
to a New Yorker, well known in dip
lomatic circles who only recently re
turned from Germany.
"During the first months of his
mission abroad, he won even the un
disguised interest of the kaiser him
self." o o
The worm has turned. Since the
Russians captured Erzerum and put
the Turks to fight 50,000 Armenians
have risen, joined the Slav army and
are paying off old scores at a rapid
rate with interest The mills of the
gods grind slow, but they grind ex
ceedingly fine. - A
