HATRED THAT WAR BREEDS
Remarkable Changes in Pleasant Re
lation Caused by Hostilities Be
Hato and war must go hand in hand.
You couldn't go out nnd shoot your
neighbor to death unless you first
hated him. If circumstances should
force you to Buch a thing you would
speedily, by a sort of self-hypnosis,
work yourself into a state of mind
where you honestly believed that kill
ing was entirely too good for him.
This is just what tho nations in Eu
rope havo done, writes Martin Mar
shall In Leslie's. We read now how
the Germans have despised the Eng
lish In the past and how the French
have for 44 years longed for revenge
on the Germans; of how Belgium
hated the kaiser with tho, hatred of
fear, and of mutual antagonisms be
tween Teuton and Serb. These senti
ments wero partly official and conven
tional, but mostly imaginary. The
people got along pretty well together.
Frenchmen did business In Berlin and
Germans went holidaying to Paris;
London's restaurants were largely
manned by Gorman staffs and Russian
peasants helped to reap the harvests
In Prussia. Educated 'men in each of
these nations prided themselves on
their familiarity with the languages of
the others, and enjoyed their litera
ture, art and music.
Then came war, and all was
changed. Some milllo'hs of men were
going to slaughter each other, and
Hrst they had to convince themselves
that they ought to do it. Tho prelim
inary era was of window smashing,
street demonstrations, trade boycotts
and Imprisonment of Inoffensive na
tionals of hostile nations. Then Wag
ner's music was tabooed in Russia and
Franco; St. Petersburg must havo its
name changed to cleanse it from the
loathsome Teutonic termination; Eng
lish table sauce disappeared from Ber
lin restaurants; Paris styles were an
athema In Vienna; London poured
Munich beer Into the gutters; a Paris
magazine started a popular. prize con
test for the best substitute name for
Eau do Cologne In short, Europe ran
the whole gamut of silly, sentimental
hysteria preliminary to shooting of
suspected spies, the bombardment of
peaceful villages, the killing of women
and children, the "strict military
reprisals" that always occur In war
and always shock the victims and the
Big Pin Money.
Some of tho large dress manufac
turers In New York, In whose factories
a considerable amount of draping
must be done, find that their bills for
pins frequently run as high as $1,500
i a year. Used only once, the pins are
removed and permitted to fall on the
floor, where they are swept away.
Even if gathered up at the day's close
they would be too dirty for use a"gain.
A compan?. Just starting in business,
proposes to effect a saving In the pin
Item by taking all the used pins, and,
having cleaned and polished them, re
turn them at half what they cost the
manufacturers originally. The experl
ments to produce a clean, reflnlshed
pin entailed over a year's work. It
was found that if the pins were gath
ered together by using a magnet they
made a mark on white fabrics, so this
method was discarded. A process has
been discovered, however, whereby the
satisfactory result was obtained
