John Mason, Celebrated Actor, Witnessed Franco-Prussian War as Boy of Ten. Declares Germans Brutally Cruel Then. It was in tho dressing room of the Broad Street Theatre yesterday afternoon. Before a mirror, rubbing greaso paint Into his face, heightening his complexion with rouge, pen cilling his eyebrows making up for tho part of tho great railroad magnate Dexter, In "Drugged"' sat John Mason, one of the com paratively few truly groat living American actors. "Good heavens! think of It! Here I am making up In a moment I'll step out there on tho stage nnd play a mimic part. Out In tho thoutro people aro sitting; they'll watch me act. And mi anwhllo. on the other side of tho world, nations are ut one another's throats. battles nro raging, men are being mowed down by tho lite of cannon. It's horrible almost In credible. Vot I foresaw this thing as a child foresaw Germany's effort to secure supre macy in tho world, foresaw the brutality and carnage that resulted in tho burning of Lou vain, and tho maltreatment of innocent women and children. I was only 10 years old then Mr. Mason rose, pacing the room. "I was sent to Germany to school nt the age of C. AVhen I was 10 I was studying at Frank-fort-on-the-Moln. I lived in a pension kept by a professor. Wo were near the frontier and saw the Franco-Prussian war at Its In coptton. Tho Germans went to war with a grim determination-!! .savagery of purpose that Impressed nnd terrified me, young as I was. Well, after the tlrst battles they began bringing tho wounded nnd prisoners to tho city. With other school children I went out and carried sandwiches and beer to the wounded soldiers. Tho tales tho Frenchmen told of tho cruelty of tho tf ei mans wero ghastly. It came to mo then the thought that this nation would some day precipitate a world war, and endeavor to secure world supremacy, nnd that the brutal ity of Its soldlors would shock and horrify tho IlUtlOnS.

Then ho shook his fist at the civilized world, nnd started to spread Gor man culturo with battalions nnd bullets. For years tho Knlser has had his spies working in all countries I know this to be a fact. I havo a friend who was Intimately connected In this spy pyatem of tho German Government. He told mo. for Instance, that the Knlser had epics throughout tho Culled States beforo the Spanish-American war. Ho was rather on tho felico as to what stand he'd take, and he wanted to ascertain the feeling of our German citizens. Ho was told by his spies that every ono of tho 3,ono,000 BUbJoctR of German birth In this coun try would take tip arms If neceseary against mo I'atncrianri In defense of th" United States. This was true, nnd I believe is Btill true. Re lieved ot the obsession nnd curie of militarism the Gorman U tho finest citizen In the world. Perhaps tho annihilation of ta war machine will mean real civilization for Germany. 'Talking if the Franco-Prussian war recalls some Interesting things.
