These assurances will carry weight,
for the conviction has deepened in the
public mind that Secretary Daniels
has grown rapidly in stature and is
an able and trustworthy secretary of

The Kaiser called the Devil up,
On the telephone one day,
The girl at Central listened la
To all t'.iey had tc say.
"Meilo," she heard the Kaiser's
"Is old man Satan hon e?
Just .ell him It Is the Kaise.- Bill,
That wants him on the phone."
"What can I do," the Devil crld,
"My dear old Kaiser Hill?
1' there's a thing that I can do
To holp you, I sure w il."
T':.e Kaiser said: "Nowlisle:i,
And I will try to tell,
j The wny that I am running
On earth a modern hell.
"I've saved for this for many years,
And I've started out to kill,
That it will be a modern Job,
You leave it to Kaiser Hill.
"My army went through Ilelgium,
Shooting women und children
We tqre up all her country.
And blew up every town.
"My Zepps dropped bombs on cities,
Killing the old and young,
Anr those the Zeppelins didn't get,
Were taken out and hung.
"I started out for Paris,
With tho aid of poison gas,
The Belgians, darn 'em, stopped me,
And wouldn't let me pass.
"My submarines are devils,
You ought to see them fight,
They go sneaking through the ocean,
And sink a ship on sight.
j "I was running things to suit me,
' Till a year or so ago
1 When a mun caled Woodrow Wilson,
i Wrote me to go more slow.
"Ho said to me: T)enr William,
We don't want to make you sore,
So bo sure to tell your U-boats,
To sink our ships no more.
" 'We have told you for the last time,
So, dear Hill, It's up to you,
And If you don't stop It,
You'll have to fight us too.'
"1 did not listen to him,
j And he's coming after me,
1 With c million Yankee soldiers.
From their homes across the sea.
. "Now, that's why I called you, Satan,
I For I want advice from you,
j I knew that you would tell n.e,
I Just what I ought to do."
"My dear old Kaiser William,
There's not much for me to tell,
; For the Yanks will make It hotter,
Than I can here In hell.
"I've been a mean old Devil,
1 But not halt as mean as you.
And the minute that you get here,
I will give up my Job to you.
"I'll be ready for your coming,
And I'll keep the fires all bright,
And I'll have your room all ready,
When the Yanks begin to fight.
"For the U. S. boys will get you,
I have nothing more to tell,
Hang up the phone and get your hat,
And meet me here In hell."
