Andre In altogether a man of peace, although at. tunes one might seem to delect u ferocious expression In bis left eye, and a still more ferocious ex pression In the pluce where his right eyu used to be. Andre's plan is very simple, and does not include haggling over terms. Any kind of a treatment will d<>. be cause the Important point lies In when the document In signed. He wants to continue the war until only one German remain«, conclude a peace with him, then Iry hint with due decorum, and hang him for the crimes of the Huns. To some this view may seem more or less radical: but If your Mister had been in tlie captured and evacuated district, and hail seen her father and husband and son killed, and if site and tier daughters had' been for IS months the slaves of German beasts, you'll have j another reason for fighting tills war than the mere duty to humanity.
