"IPRATIIIIS OYE TIE SEA."
(Vicksblrg H leraldl)
The publication of a recent article
by Gen. Van Edelsheim, of the Gen
eral German Staff, fairly illustratesI
the nature and aims of what i co-rn
monly called German tiilitarisan. It
presumably,forcasts what was to fol
low the imposition of (;erman hbeg
emony upon Europe. "l'le a ;eneral's
premise is that the (;ermans "have
to ask themselves what force they
can bring to bear in order to meet
the attacks of the United States
against their interests, and to im
pose their will." He says: "Our
fleet will probably be able to defeat
the naval forces of the United States
which are distributed over two
oceans and over long distances." But
he admits that operations on land
would also be necessary and he es
timates that four weeks after the
battle fleet leaves German harbors
German operations on American soil
could begin." Among other things
Considering the great extent of the
United States, the conquest of the country
by an army of invasion is not possible.
But there is every remon to believe that
vietoriousenterprises on the Atlantic coast
and the conquest of the most important
arteries through which imports and ex
ports pass, will create such an unbearable
state of affairs in the whole c,,untry that
the government will reazdlily "tiher accept
able conditions in order to, ob,tainl pesa.
The Americans will not fe.l iinclined to
conclude peace because one or two prov
inees are occupied by an army of invasion
but because of the enormous material loss
which the whole country will suffer if the
Atlantic harbor towns in which the thread
of the whole prosperity of the United
States are concentrated, are torn away
from them one after the other.
Therefore, the task of the fleet would
be to undertake a series of large landing
operatloos, through which we are able
to take several of these important and
wealthy towns within a brief spaceof time
By interrupting their communications, by
destroying all buildings serving the state,
eommeree, and the defense, by taking
away all material for war and transport
andIaly by levying heavy contributions
we would be able to inflict damage on the
The quotation from the Edelsheim
plan of "operations over sea" con
cludes with an utterly contemptible
estimate of American military prep
aration and resources. Offensive as
this speculative disqussion is coming
from the military council board of
a friendly nation, preposterous and
grotesque as a serious view of possi
bilities or purposes of policy con
corning the American people it must
be accepted as a lodger in the brain
pan of German militarism. This is
compelled, coming from the German
Staff, which is nothing if not serious
With Great Britain, France and Bel
gium dispbsed of, "operations over
the se"were to have followed as out
lined; with "the Hun at the gate,"
this cuntry was to be thumbscrewed
in the way of burnings and ravages
of our sea coast cities, and "lastly by
levying heavy contributions" until
our government offered acceptable
conditions of peace. What has been
done to the Belgains tells what this
means. Under the revelation of such
a flash of light of the militarists who
are all powerful for Germany, what
American can withhold hie sympa
thy, and his prayers, for the success
of the allies?

The news of the death of Dr. A.
A. Forsythe, Mayor of Monroe,
which occurred in that city on last
Tuesday, while not unexpected will
cause a shock to the people through
out the state. For sixteen years Dr.
Forsythe has been Mayor of progres
sive Monroe, during which time the
city has not only prospered as a
municipality but has become the
most progressive city in the country
Dr. Forsythe was a great believer
in municipial ownership of public
utilities, and under his successful
administration, the city had acquir
ed the ownership of all its public
utilities including its street railway
system. Dr. Forsythe was one of the
most picturesque figures in public
in this state. A man of strong
tlet, indoomitable courage,
forceful as a public speaker, with
the moral courage to advocate his
personal convictions on all public
questions, even in face of almost
overpowing and unsurnmountable
obstacles and forces, and with that
personal magnetism which bound
friends to him with ties that could
never be broken, he had made a
host of friends throughout the entire
State of Louisiana, all of whom will
mourn his loss. To his sorrowing
family, to the people of Monroe, to
his many friends throughout the
state, the Gasette extends its sincere
and heartfelt ampathy and condol

Careless cotton farming and gin
run seed are responsible for a lot of
short cotton crops. There is but
little purebred seed planted, and the
product of that little generally be
comes more or less mixed in the
field and in the gin.
Five points should be carefully
noted in cotton-seed improvement:
Type, variety, selection, ginning and
storing. A farmer should determine
the type of cotton he wants to pro
duce. He can in the end produce
what he wants if he studies and
works for it By type is meant the
kind of stalks, boll, lint, etc. The
type generally preferred is a strong,
hbort, vigorous stalk, with plenty of
fruit limbs on the lower half, fruit
limbs short jointed but extending to
the outer horder of the plant and
fruiting to the end; large bolls, storm
resisting, a heavy percentage of lint,
staple, if large-bolledootton, at least
one and one-eighth Inches, strong,
plant hardy, early and prolific.
Store your selected seed in a dry
place and wait until the steam gins
are nearly through, then carefully
clean the gin, put down a sheet to
catch the seed, and run your select
ed lot through. Store in a dry place
till it is time for planting.-Ex.
