My Dear Wilhelm:
I can call you by that familiar
name, for I have always been verb
close to you, much clo er than yo'
could know.
From the time that you were ye
an unueve-oped ae-ng I have shap'
your destiny for my own purpose.

you rown failing;; I twisted you
mind to that of a madman with cer
tain normal tendenc.es to ca:ry yo
by, a most dangerous character
paced in power; I give you the pow
er of a hypnotist and a certain mag
netic force that you m ght sway your
people. I am responsible for the de
formed arm that hangs helpless on
your left, for your cri pplea condi
tion embitters your life and destroys
all nob.e impulses that might other
wise cause me anxiety, but your
strong sword arm is driven by your
ambitions that quelch all sentiment
and pity. 1 placed in your soul a
deep hatred of all things English,
for of all nations on earth I hate
England most; wherever' England
plants her flag she brings order out
of chaos and the hated Cross fol
lows the Union Jack; under her rule
wild tribes become tillers of the soil
and in due time practical citizens;
she is the great civilizer of the globe
and I hate her. I planted in your
soul a cruel hatred of your mother
because she was Engl'sh and left my
good friend Bismarck to tan the
Same I had kindled. Recent history
proves how well our work was done.
It <broke your royal mother's heart,
but I gained my purpose.
The inherited disease of the 110
heuzollerns killed your father, just
as It will kill you, and you became
the ruler of Germany and a tool of
mine sooner than I expected.
To assist you and further hasten
my work I sent you three evil spirits,
Nietzsche, Tdeitschl e and the later
Bernhardl, whose teachings infiamed
tihe youths of Germany. who in good
Stime would be willing to spill their
blood and pull your chestnuts
yours and mine; the spell has been
perfect-you cast your ambitious
eyes toward the Mediterranean,
Egypt, lndia, and the Dardanelles.
and you began your great railway to
Bagdad. but the amaitlous archduke
and hes more ambitious wife stood
in your way. It was then that I

Left Mandeville For Return
Trip When Engine
Gave Out.
While Suffering Extremely
All Have Recovered
Without Harm.
Mandeville. Nov. 22- -A splendid
success in a noble cause was the
Comfort Bag party given by the Man
devilile Red Cross last Monday night
at the W. P. U. hall. The people
were asked to bring articles of a kind
required to make up a number of
comfort bege to be sent to the 'ol
dier boys now in camp, and Mande
vyle responded in a printely way.
The crowd was large and overflowing
with enthusiasm. The articles came 4
in parcels, packages, chunks and
pales, enough for about 73 comfort
kits,. Re$ bandana andi kahki ker
chiefs will be used a& containers in- j
stead of bags, which will make the 4
entire outfit serviceable.
The decorations were beautifal in
their very simplicity, consisting 31

,e eral effect.
The program was short, in eres

In serving the refreshments the
Red Cross was not unmindful of the
U. S. Government's conservation ad
vices, just- enough chocolate, cake
and soft drinks had been provided
and served to refresh and satisfy, no
over-indulgence, no waste.
The music for the singing, as also

Perhaps the least d:ficult, but by.
no means the least important, of the

taken is that in connection with or
ganization among boys and girke on
farms. To the promotion of these
activities the department has given
considerable attention, especiagy
through the Seals Relations Service
and Bureau of Animal Industry.
This work was begun by the de
partment in the Southern State,
about eight years ago. The ofijec
of the work Is to instruct boys and
girls in practical agriecuture and
home economics, 'bringing to them
'he latest results of research by the
department. The number of boys
and g rIo enrolled in the club work
has grown rapidly, until it now ap
i.oximates 2.50,000, and the activi
ties of the members, which were at
first confined to the growing of corn
now include the following projects:
Corn, potatoes, home garden and
canning, pouf ry, farm and home

Slidell, Nov. 22.-There was a well
attended meeting of the town Coun
cil on Tuesday night, when it was
proposed to pass the ordinance au
thorizing the issue of $60,000 bonds
for the purpose of installing a water
works system. There were a num
ber of large taxpayers present as
well au other interested citizens., as
was also Mr. B. M. Miller, of Cov
ington, Mr. X. A. Kramer, engineer
for the Board of Aldermen, and Mr.
J. F. Time, of Hammond. The or
dinance was introduced but was de
feated by a vote of three to two.
The only objection offered being that
the time was inopportune, and that
the amount as contemplated wag not
sufficient to cover the cost of an ade
quate water system. While defeat
ing the waterworks project, cost of

by the ten mills a~sessment, how
