Interest in the fighting in the European
war for the moment has been
overshadowed by political issues.
Coming almost immediately on the
conviction of four officials of the Hamburg-American
line of conspiracy in
] obtaining manifests for vessels with
which to place provisions on German
warships in the Atlantic has come the
announcement that'several days ago
the United States requested that Gerj
many recall Oapt. Karl Boy-Ed. naval
j attache, and !Cai)t( Franz von Papen,
military attache of the German embassy
The officers, it is said, made the step
necessary by improper activity in connection
with naval and military matters.
It is said that the department
was uncertain whether steps should be
(taken with regard to other officials of
'the embassies at Washington in connection
with similar activities.
The recall of the attaches is tantamount
to their forced withdrawal from
the diplomatic service of Germany in

elements of a scandal in the report
But it seems that the minister is not
accused of breaking his promise to
marry, but his promise to pay certain
sums of money in a business contract.
"Breach of promise," however, is
chained so securely to the post of a
single meaning that it connotes but
one idea in the popular mind.
"Elope" is another word that is not
free. It means merely to run away,
but only people wno run away ro marry
surreptitiously are allowed to elope.
"Notoriety" is simply the state of bein?
known. A notorious man. however, ia
a man of bad reputation. "Ruegcstiv^ness"
likewise means merely having
the ability to suggest, but it is used in
a bad sense. And 'criticism," however
much it would like to desci^e friendly
as well as hostile comment, finds
itself unable to convey any meaning
save that of faultfinding. The number
of such slaves mteht be multiplied

BIG PULL OF THE ROBIN.
To See It at Its Strongest Watch Him
Relatively speaking, the robin has
more pull than the wiliest politician
that ever drew breath or a contract.
We mean, of course, in companion to
their sizes. By similar comparison,
he's stouter than a 100 horsepower
stumn nuller or a steel magnet If you
want to see him test his strength get
up early some seasonable morning, go
out on the lawn and watch your friend,
the robin, grubbing for worms.
You'll havo to be early because the
robin is. Likewise the robin is early
because the worm is. Earthworm*,
you know, crawl out of their underground
tunnels at nighttime and feed
nr? Hnari :iiul cTflssAs scattered
over the lawns. The robin gets his
breakfast before the worms hPi? time
to get far down in their burroTs.
Mr. Robin goes hopping around over
the grass like a boy in a sack race with
his feet tied, stopping to inspect a hole
so tiny that you'd never see it He
shoots his bill down in the hole, gives
his head a little twist?yes. he's found
Then begins rhe tug of war. With
the end of the worm fast in his biV .
the robin braces his legs and j:iil!s
He doesn't jerk the worm out. If !i
did the worm might break, and you'll
seldom see a robin get only haif a
worm. No, he plays with it like a
skillful angler who has caught a big
iish on hia line. Little by little tbe
worm gives way, and presto, (he robin
hiis him in his mouth.
Once \n a great while a young robin,
who hasn't kerned the art yet, will
bft caught off his balance by a sudden'
release of the worm and go tumbling
on his back. But that doesn't happen
often.?Philadelphia North .Mnerican.
QuW Leaking Werms,
New Zealand, Australia, the Sdinoan
and the Solomon islands as well as
portions of the Hawaiian group are
the homes of various species of worms
with thick, 'heavy bodies and with a
well defined week connecting the body
with a head that is a startling reminder
of that of the monkey. In the Sandwich
islands tliey are called "me-ta
lu-ki," which means "creeper with a
child's head." An old New Zealandlegend
says that at one time they were
of immense proportions and threatened
the extinction of all human life on
North American Camels.
Camels were common in North
America during the miocene epoch,
and several forms have been found.
One was about the size of a sheep and
is supposed to be the ancestor of modern
camels and llamas. Others were
large and had long necks like the
giraffe. All these ancient camels had
hoofs like cattle.?Argonaut
