a sparkling musical farc-i that has
met with great suceesf in. all the larg

Lawrence Kising. in collaboration with
Margaret Mayo, who was larirelv re
sponsible for the suce? of "Tv. in

man who, on his wedding night, finds
himself unable to tell his wife from

the Norfolk production yesterday, said

fast little farce. To see it is to laugh."

During the height of the disc >sslo:i
in our Munchen conference, one of
these young ivomi n taunted bitterly a
com ratio of tho majority party allllla
tion by telling him that even the
lloman Catholic party of Germany had
shown more courage and antigovern
ment spirit than the Socialist party.
I must be very careful In referring
to the activities of the third Socialist
element In Germany. I can relate hun
dreds of Instance- v.-hon these fearless
men and women have shown real
revolutionary spirit, and set an cx

At the end of our long conference,
utterly Oe._.r--.-?cd. I left my Socialist
comrade:- Although the Faiherlaud
iias gone through the greatest de
teriorating changes, the method an<3
mode of reasoning of our two prln
? !?lo Sorb* list parties in Germany has
remained almost the same. I was
.here wl'.h r! 1 ? -:: to listen ti- what they
knew about tho present-day German
:> .t' fa. temper, and I listened atten
tively. without n or.ee interrupting
them, but when it became my turn to
explain l) ihom what tho outside world
is thinking and expecting of them. I
r found in them a bad audience. I am
not only referring to my Muticheu
comrades. In majority of Instances I
found our Socialists an accusing mob.
They accuse their government, they ac
cuse each other, and they accuse, above
ail, their foreign comrades. I found
i'. very ditlieult to reason with them
a! nu the origin of the war. They seem
to wish to shut their eyes to the
present-day realities, and stay con
tented in dabbling in their prewar esti
mates of other countries.
In the Berlin district 1 met many
leading Socialists. and interviewed
nearly thirty-five members of ihe
Heich.stag. and with the exception of
?* few I found them alive to the new
conception of world democracy. But
outside this district I found our Ger
man Socialists not internationally

i her of those 5io are violently against

different motives.
The majority of the South Germans'
i violent criticism ol the government Is
!not based on the fact that they have
been led to this bloody war by their
rulers, bu* because they believe that
the government has chosen a wrong
time to go into the war. I was
grievously surprised to listen in South
Germany to criticism of the govern
ment. hased on this most immoral Idea.
A Sccialist friend at Wurttemherg
complained bitterly that Germany had
rot yet awakened to a moral sense of
shame.
I have attended over fifty peace
meetings, and felt shamed and sur
prised that the speakers were the most
immoral materialists to whom 1 had
ever listened. Xot once did I hear

ANXIOl'S TO TJ'IRX TRl TH OF
AMKltTC V\ PARTICIPATION
Oi reaching Berlin the mn?t signifi
?nt fact that forced itsett to my
'??^mediate notice was the anxious de
' -ire of L'beral and Socialist leaders
to learn the truth about America's
sincerity in the war.
At first when America entered th"
?"> r th<' authorities had ignored and
-idiculed Attieriea's war-making capa
bilities. hut when the news filtered
hat America had appropriated a htu'ii
?*m to nuild and man a fleet of more
' an "O.cmO aeroplanes, the govm..
?-nt had found itself la an embar
? ssin-r position, and felt themselves
compelled to make further explana
i 'ions. A German officer told me that
lie had a very short interview with
m American who was taken prisoner
"ither in the British lines or the new
American line, who told him that the
war would not end until they reached
Berlin. He was greatly impressed
with the apparent sincerity behind the
American soldier's bravado. I mention
this because my officer friend's state
of mind represents the temper of the
average German military man. T ob
served that In spito of their boastful
statements, the rank and file of the
soldiers were greatly excited over
America's possibilities.

CARDUI
SPLENDID TONIC
For Women, Sajs Hixson Lady,
Who Took This Medicine
On Her Doctor's
Advice.
Iiixson. Tenn.?Mrs. J. B. Gadd,
of this place, makes the following |
statement regarding her experience
with Cardui: "I was ... 1 suffered
with a pain in my left side: could not
-leep at night for this pain?always
in the left side. My feet, and legs
were terribly swollen. I was almost
in bed.
My doctor told me to use Cardui.
*1 took one bottle, which helped me,
and after my baby came I was
stronger and better, but the pain was
still there. I at first let it go, but
1 began to get weak and in a run
down condition, so 1 decided to try
sonto more Cardui. which I did. The
last Cardui I took made me much
better, and. In fact, cured me. It
has been a number of years, still I
have no return of this trouble. I feel 1
it wa6 Cardui that cured me. and 1
recommend it as a splendid female
tonic."
If you feel weak, tired, worn-out.
or suffer from any of the ailments
peculiar to women, try Cardui. the
woman's tonic. It must bo a good
medicine for women, for many thou
sands have voluntarily told, just as
Mrs. Gadd did, of the good it has
done them. Ask some lady friend
who has tried Cardui. Shi will tell
you how it helped her. Then get a
bottle from your nearest druggist.?
