To which might be added :
When Freedom from her mountain height
Unfurled her s'andard to the air,
A large percentage ahook with fright
And uttered an exemption prayer.
One's reverence for the Btax studded standard is put
to the test not infrequently. Or.ce, for violating a traffic
ordinam-e. I had to appear in Jefferson Market Court. As
I was leaving the courtroom, I started, about three inches
from the door. to put on my hat. "Take off your hat!"
commanded a large attendant. "Ain't you got any respect
for the eov'munt o' the U-nited States?" I told him,
though he Beemed untoterested, that 1 had. But Tuesday
afternoon, while Senator Lodge was spcaking, I saw a
iSonator?I forgst which one?take out a penknife and go
through all the realistic details of manicuring. Democ
racy il one thing. but one's patriotism develops a large
sized fissurc under strain^hkejhat.
How sleep the brave who sink to rest
By Washingtonian heat oppressed?
As lasl night's horror I recall,
1'd say they do not sleep at all.
"The American people can do anything they want,"
said Senator Chamberlain. "Do you believe that?" I
.^ked Tad. "I should say not," replied the gitted artist.
"If that was so. I'd be out in Great Xeck right now."
"^till " I said, "two of the American people might go
out to the balfgame." And-which increased the attend
ance considerably?they did.
If there is unharmony in the government, it is con
tagious. "Does this car go to the ball park?" 1 asked the
mo'orman. "No." he said. "Does this car go to the ball
park?" I asked the conductor. "Yes," he said. And it did.
What the President has for breakfast I have not yet
been able to ascertain. But Gen. Goethals, who is still
here, orders rice and milk for luncheon.
Another difference between the slacker and the hero
is that one waves the flag and the other waives exemption.
Washington's bicycle policemen are not without in>
agination. Their speedometers are arranged for a maxi
mura speed of 35 miles an hour.
Air Brisbane's Washington Times has the frankness
to put the weather story out on the front page and con
cedes that Washington is a warm place these days. But
Mr. McLean's Washington Post runs the weather story
on page 9, with the well-ii-was-hot-everywhere headhne
Life. it is truc, ls full of waits,

German Press in U. S. Breeds
Trouble with Disloyal Articles
Feature Reports From Berlin and Suppress or Deny London
and Paris News, Declares Loyal American
of German Birth
The longer the war contlnues the
holder bccomes the German-language
press in this country. These di.-loynl
hreedcrs of di:sension are not conttnt
1 to publish near-trcasonable eflitorials
! and to manipulnte their news columns
! in the interest of Schreckliehkelt by
laying stress, in their headlines, on
! anything favorable to the Kai.er and
j unfavorable to the AIUcb, by printing
? first ar.d more prominently th? re
', ports from Berlin and Vienna, by oftcn
, Buppressincr the London and Paris news
or by branding it as falsehood, either
j directly or by innuendo; they take the
otTonsive aguinst the vernncular press.
"The m-wspapers publtshed in Ger?
man," says the "Ncw-Yorkcr Staats
Zeitung," "are accuaed of treason when
they print the truth. When the Eng
lish-langungc papers are late with news
they call it 'special cable.*"
As a matter of fact, not one of the
hundreds of German-language papers
in this country received one line of
special cable news from Europe since
many months. Some of them are aub
scribers to the news of The Associated
Tress, the t'nlted TresB, Hcarnt's Tn
ternational News Service, and perhaps
other news agencies. Even these rela
tively few German publications don't
got any cable news In advance of tho
vernacular f ress. Most of the German
language papers have no news service
at all; they translate the news of the
local English paper*. and prtnt clippings
I from other papers published in Ger
! mun.
Nevertheless, the Oerman-langURge
press publishes exclusive news about
i the events in the European theatres of
war. For instance. the "TS'ew-Yorker
| Herold" and the "Abendblatt" (evening
ledition; of the "New-Yorker Staats
! Zeitung" had a "beat" when they in
1 formed their readers that the greatrr
part of.the English battle fleet was d?
stroyed by German Zcppelins near Hull.
It was a "beat," but it was not true;
: it was no real news, but made out of
' whole cloth. Alluding to the phrase
"special cable," n German-language
n*wapap?I Ia New York that is not a
pro-K?i:-er lh??t I "Volkszeitung") ridi
culed such manufactured "news" as
'"Special l'fnten D?peaeh*B" ("special
BBW U-legrams"; the (ierman phrase
1 "biick out of the paw" means to liei.
But the "Wn.rhhT und Anzeiger, of
1 Cleveland, musters the "cuurage" to
contend that the "(lermnn-Ameriean
press, m cpite of all the attacks und
peraeCBtiona to which It has been sub
i since three yeara by the pro
Bnti.-h press. haa incrcased Its influ
ence because it has striven, from the
beginning, to tell the truth and to cn
trfetically oppoM th* Loadoa bo man
afsctnn ra." , ,,,
The laat contcntion is thus illuminat
ed by the "IUinois Staats-Zeitung,' of
Chicago: ,
"Tlu- Gi-rman government, we vent
i ure to say. publi.shcd the truth about
their anniM revn-t', M W*?l "''their
! victories, and th* MOpll were thus IB
i the possession of the facts."
To b* p.rfrrtly frank, the paper
: "houtd have added "and the German
Boureas" to the words "German gov
amraent," which, besides, has not yet
given out the new. that the haisers
armia* were drtw hack from the
Marat to tho So -ne nearly three
years ago. ,
' How impartiallv the news Is tr.ated
! bv th* GanBaa-lBBfuac* press may be
fron an adltarlal in the "Illinois
Staata-ZaitBBB." that aayi that reports
from Waahington "conirm the opin.on
? of all thaa* papai - aad paapl* who
' from the first moment have warned
i agaiaat aaUrtaiaiag too sangume hopes
that our BMIB opportuno intervention
with th* r<- earee* ir.d-.spensably re
qnlrad for aucces. would decidu the war
agaiaat (iermany.
"In the first rlace, offieera of our
Gcaeial Stafl who aceenBaaitd Oen
?ral I'erahir.g to France report that the
(ierman line on the Western front
g-mply cannot be broken through by
Uli**. They do not indirate how
many men. in their opinion, would be
requirad to accompli?h thia. But it is
clear that only America can and tn
tenda to furniah the enormou. number
of soldiers requirrd." To destroy the
effect of the last sentence hiid to for
tify its readers in the conviction that
the war i? practically decided in favor
of the Central Powers, the article con
"At the iime time a .tatament from
a semi-offirial souro- at Washington,
which ha. been publiahed, deelares
that we shal! not be abie to send more
than 100,000 men before New Year'a,
and rertainly not more than 999.991
before Octohrr, !H18.
"That these will not aufflca to ae
cqrajjiBb. our ajma is aj?parent to every
body." Like other German-language
1 nupers, the "Illinois Staats-Zeitung"
i has at Bihar times ii,formed its real
! eis that England will have bnen forced

war daeidad in favor of Germany by
' the middle of next year at the lat.-st.
The report that American staff offi
cers who had rcturned froro France
ha.l called the German \Ve?tern battle
' front impregnable was dated July M
J and der:!"l by Baciatair of Waf Baker
| on the followlBg day. But neverthelesa
j the "Illinois Ptaa'.s-Zeitung" based ita
I editonal in ita aditiofl of July II on a
I report that had heen ofncially branded
? aa false three days before, when Scc
| retary Baker said:
"The returniii',' offlcers were full of
i enthusiasm over the ahility of tho Brlt
] ish forces to mike headway against
1 their eneni:es."
Of th* great cr New York German
! language papers not one mentioned, ln
I ita Btw* cohmuis, the ric-iral of the
i Secretary of War, although it had been
j made before the original untrue story
1 had been prlnUd by any German morn
i ii.g paper in this country. At l*B*t two
j German morning papers published in
! New York. the "N'cw-Yorker Herold"
i and the "NVw-Yorker S?aa;s-Zeitung,"
are suhscrihers to tho service of The
I Associated Tress that carriM the de
nial on the evening of July 99.
On July 24 the "Abendblatt" of the
"N.-w-Yorker Staats-Zeitung" took a
| fiing at S<>cretary Baker in the follow
| ing editonal:
. "Secretary of War Baker denles the
1 news published first by 'The New York
World' that American officers v.ho
; have recently rcturned from Europe
. have stated that the German lines eould
j not be broken thrnugh. 'The deaial
says: 'The German lines are not un
I conqucrahle,' and concludes thus: 'The
delegation came back without any prs
I simistic opininn whatever.' There am
j dr-menlies which, m negations, have a
I stronger effect than the denied conten
i tion."
Tho same German-language press
| that unscrunulously RB**f* ut every
i thing American does not hesitate to
? protest in the most vehement forms
! ugain-t rwry a'tempt to call the atten
t:on of the public to the ahameful con
! duct of the Germans in Belgium or
Northern France, to tho nithless Lusi
I tania murder a"hd other acts of char
jacferistic I'russianism. The facts them
j helves cunnot be denied; but the Ger
! man-Americans don't want to be re
iminded of them. And the German-lan
i guage press, which conducts a system
jslic campaign of calumny and slander
'against the Cnited BtaUl aad her al
I lies, is up In arms against tho nlm "The
Little American."
The "Deutsche Zeitung," of Portland,
i Ore., published an article by Robert
H. Jonas, who "is convinced that the
I picture is produced for a purpose, and
! that is an un-American one." Mr.
Jonas exprets terrible eonsequences for
the country if the film is not put under
the ban by the public authorities. The
result of the production of "The Little
American" will be, according to Mr.
Jonas, "to crcate internal dlssenslon
aad to destroy or at least to disrupt
that unity of purpose in America which
\i essential to a successful conduct of
i the war."
While the German-languago press
complains about the treatment it u
accorded by tho newspapers published
in tha vernacuUr, it does not hesitate
to accuae the American people of
slander. Complains "The Colorado
Herold," of Denver:
"W? are unable to effeetlvely influ
ence the present eonditions, which have
been totaily put out of order by the
war, or to utern the wheel of calumny
that trurdles over us every oay."
The "Illinois Staats-Zeitung" asks
the German-Americans to boycott the
newspapers printed in Eng'.ish, and the
"Germama," of Milwaukee, f.ghts the
proposition to place restriction* on the
German-languago press, and haa the
effrontcry to add:
"Furthermore, 'some* (German-lan
guage papers | ihould n-ceive recog
nition for what they have recently
done to further the interests of the
country, especially in the big citle.,
where they have made acquainted the
exclusively German speaking popu'.a
tion with the new duties impoaed upon
them by the war. Many i German-lan?
guago) newspapers huvo esaentially
helped to rrfaintain peace and order by
aakiBg that (Ocnaaa apeakingi part of
the population to do their new dutias.
And that was certainly of great vaiue."
And indeed the German-language
pupers receive recognition, a golden
recognition that is paid out of tha
pockets of American taxpayers, many
of whom will be maimed or killed by
the bulleta of the Kalser, whose cauaa
ia ao conaistently promoted by the Ger?
man-language aneets. In moat of th*
big and in many of the smaller cities
the offlclsl adv.rtisements are pub
liah.d in the German-language papers.
The "Westlicho PoBt," of St. Louis.

Although the seandal of publlahing

aa paia advertisement, one and a hair
columns of proposed amendmenta to
the atate conatitution.
Thia adTertieement does not aerve
any purpoae, becauae only an inaignifl
cant minority of the "Staate-Zeitung"
readers is able to understand this Lna>
ltsh advertisement.
While it is true that the "New-Yorker
Staats-Zeitung" is at present a Janus
1 paper, publishing one Engliah column
i avery dav, it is equally true that Herr
I Bernard H. Ridder's "Timely Topics
I is only for casual Enghsh-speaking
> readers to show them the pro-German
' faea of the publieation. The German
i Janua face is for the average reeder
with pro-Kaiaer aentimenta.
No wonder that already plana are
made not only to continue the German
propaganda after the reatoration of
peace, but even to make !t more eyetem
atic and effective. "The Waechter
i und Anzeiger," of CleTeland, for in
: star.ce, published the following:
"At the present time. when we can
not carry on any political propaganda
( and we wou'.d commit treason by doing
1 so, we must aim only at making plana
| for tho future."
Under such conditiona the American
; people may expect "eomething," eape
i cially in case the Kaseer and junkerdom
j should not be overthrown, and the aya
i tem of "peacefully penetrating" for
i eign eountries by an unscrupulous and
!sub?idlzed propaganda should be reor
' ganized.
? Many Ways to Can
Peppers, Says Food
Garden Commission
Should Be Sealed in Jars and
Left in Cool Places
There are many ways for canning
peppers, saya the National Emergency
Fccd Garden Commiaalon. Wash red
peppers and ellce or? stem, rernove
seeda and cut crosswlse Into rings
with scissors. Drop slicea into boiling
water for two minutea and then l?t
stand in very cold water for ten min?
utea. Draln. pack into Jars and flll to
overflowing with a boiling syrup of two
cupa sugmr and a quart of vlnegar.
Seal jars at once and invert to cool.
Place sweet green peppers in oven
until the akin blisters, neel and pack
into hot jars. Add boiling water to
fi!l jars. with a level teaapoonful of
salt to tho quart. adjust and partially
tlghten tops and eteriliie in boiling
water for an hour and a half. RemDve
iarn, tight?n tcps snd invert to cool
in place free from drafta.
The Spanish pimentos should be pre
pared as above and packed in Jars wit'.i
out the addition of any water. Steril
tee for thirty minutea and aeal Jars
immediately. This procass brfngs out
a thick liquor which covera the pep
pera in the jars and renders the addi?
tion of water unnecessary.

Village of Ovid Rallies to War
Under Chautauqua Orators' Spell
,'Spaclal Oorraspondacoa of Tha Tribune]
Orid, N. Y., Aug. 1--The organisera
of national sentiment have got hold of
a powerful inatrument. The popula
tion of Ovld Village, normally 600, haa
been augroented this wcek to 1,200 by
the rallying power of the big Chautau
qua tent.
Modem citiea have their foruma,
theatres, nass meetings, clubs and ao
eial centrea, but with all their civic
activitiea they have nothing so com
pletely unifying aa la the Chaotauqua
circult now grown to enormoua propor
tions in the rural diatricte. Beneath
the Redpath Chautauqua tent Ovid this
weok haa forum, theatre, playground,
kindergarten, folk meeting and pa
triotic rally in one, and the Red Cross
and military organizations aro glad to
bo collateral benef.ciaries.
Lincoln waa a "stump" orator. Em
erson slaked the popular thint for ora
tory. James Redpath sent Wendell
Phillipa, William Lloyd Garrlaon. John
B. Gough and even P. T. Barnum to
minister to thia American need for
oratory. The Chautauqua itinerant
lyceum is the full flower of that origi
nal platform idea.
Any one who expected to find some
"amoosin' cuss" like Artemua Ward
sandwicbed in between Swlss bell
rlngers and the celebrated "Silly Sis
ters" ln the Chautauqua prr.grammes
had r.ot quite caught the idea. The
ctrcus animals have been driven to
cover in their own tent, chcap vaudo
ville talent haa been relegated to the
metropolitan areaa, and the offlce-aeek
lng haranguer haa been mialaid. A very
aerious and signlncant matter is the
Chautauqua idea of to-day and this
"little affalr" at Ovid amaahes all pre
conceiTed notions.
It waa not "Billy" Sunday nor Rlng
ling Brothers' Circus, not a hallelujah
camp meeting, nor a Proaidential can
didate that ltned up the vlllage streets
with automobiles and fllled the big tent
I with aftemoon and evening oudiencea,
but the instinct for soclal contact
I through the flner emotional appeals of
| music and oratory es exploited by the
I Chautauquaa.
The programme Is frankly a war
mcasure. Had England a Chautauqua
when the war broke out ahe could have
aaved the $25,000,000 which she paid
for concerta, lecturea and entertain
manti in order to awake the "will to
war" in the people.
Vtllager Proyes Retlcent.
In the village hotel, whose bar had
dried up and whoae corridor walls were
I gloomy with picturas of transatlantic
? liners that are now on the bottom of
, the sea, I asked e merchant from across
the street:
"What do the people around here
thlnk of tho war?"
"They don't say," he replied with
equal caution.
"Are they glad or sad?" I ventured
"I don't know very much about it.
Ask Frelcigh Jonee, the druggiat."
"Does Jones also know what you
think about the war?" I asked admir
"He ain't hearn me say very much
about the war."
Pressed further, thia myaterious vil
lager finally broke through his own
reticence and disclosed a perfectlv
normal opinion derived from the daily
papers, and he quoted the lateat utter
ancos of Secretary of State Lansing as
embodying at once his opinion, hia fear
and his duty. The rural people think
no differently than we, but they stand

in reed of tho prompting stimulas of
contact emotiona. Down at th* erowded
tent I found evidencs of thia. On the
way there I solicited an opinion of
Mrs. 1.. Farrell, who keeps the ice
cream parlor.
"\V? would l.ke to have tha war
over," .he said, "but ean sea no way
out wAhout tighting. There ia no anti
war talk here."
I gathered thia impraaalon from A.
Harmon, who farms aa well aa keep.
"A number of farmer*' aoaa have
gone and labor ia eearce, but they all
reahze that we are in for a ftght ta *
In S. C. Meddlck I atruck tha com
munity pesaimist. I fancy hia detach
ment was uncommon. He aaid:
"It is a much more eerioua bualnoas
than was expected when wa went into
it. Perhapa we wouldn't hava bean ao
haaty had we been better lnformed. A
lot of farmers' aons have enlisted. Th*
people don't need any oratory. V?hy
orate to men whom you are going to
draft! The draft'll get them. You
may be au*> they'll get the laraere'
sons, because they are tha oniy ones
who are physically lit."
In Dr. H. W. Ogden was diacovered
the communitv optimist, and incidental
lv th* man who made the Chautauqua
possible in Ovid. He had found a reso
lute spirit in farmer* and villagers
alike, not a parading nfe and drum
enthusiasm, because the communlty
is far removed from theao ftrat
aids to enthusiasm, but "a good
American underitanding of the war
causes and aims which expreeaee
itself in Ovid in normal Red Croaa.
Liberty Loan and volunteering ac
tivities." Ovid. by the way, fur
r.ished tho filBt man drrfted at Waah
ingtcr. by Secretary Baker, Glenn Mar
tin by name.
The Dmgglat'a Opinion
I waylafld John Clark. a yuur.g farmer,
and wooed him into converaation. Said
John Clark. of th* Ovld-Seneaa Fall?
state road: "It'a a nasty meea, but
there can't ba peace until we win. I
would ro if I were younger."
Flnally I encountered tha venUble
Frelelgh Jpnea, druggiat. He phtloeo
phized a bft, thua:
"The people hereabouts know all
about tha war. But it is too far away
to touch them. They feel prttty safe.
It is one thmg to know what we are up
against, but it is another thing to re
aliie it keenly. Wait BBttl 'he t>Amerl
can doad h.-gm to be numbered."
A complete cross s.ction of New York
City a. well as of Ovid. Everythtng
normal in Ovid. and intelligent, out
with a slowor pulse. Then tha crowd
emotion found liboration in the big
tent. Joe Mitchell Chappla waa boom
ing the daep organ tones of patriotism.
"?Your country ia calling, call ng. he
was pUadiag. "It needa you. Had the
German* not been stopped at the
Marne, that ruthlosa militarism would
have overrun your fleld. and your
homes. And it is still powerful. It
, must be crushed. We muBt send mlll
ions of our brave boya over in order to
nave the world."
The eudience eat keemy drlnktng
thia in.
"Tho war cannot be fought untll the
! mothers of America are ready for their
boys to go," the orator, moved all but
I to tears, was? now entreating. The
I many worn mothere there felt their
hearta gTip. "Until tha mothera *r*
| won to the war there ia no winnlng of
j the war." he said as he recited movir.g
i tales <<f Spartan mothere.
What.-ver the mothers of the young
men ot Ovid thought, it was the fathers
who evpressed themsclves vocally. They
| rose to the appeal with a will, some of
I them gnarled veterans of oth.r wars.
"I was unwilling to hava my boy go
I before. N<>w I a'rn willing," ona of them
I said, aa later he clasped the exhauatud
orator's hand. Ar.d BOt he alone, but
! others, among them John Brennan and
! Jeremiah MeGtll, farmer., who grew
j yourg with the unwonted thrill of pa
I triotism.
