A :-tory of the war?what the Cana
dians Australians and British have
Sotiu through already, and what our
hwji boys are now facing?will he the
feature of the program at the Academy
of Music to-night and Tuesday and at
the matinee Tuesday, when Sergeant
I... Shannon Corrnack, formerly of the
Fifth Canadian Field Artillery Brigade,
an 1 lattery assigned to duty with the
staff of General Sir Julian Byng on
the western front, will lecture in con
junction with the first showing of the
official Cnited States government mo
tion pictures, entitled, "America at
War. Over There and Over Here."
Sergeant Cormack is a Brooklyn. N.
V., hoy. who went to Canada at the
outbreak of the war in lf>14 and en
listed in the Canadian artillery. lie
had previously been in the New York
State National Guard, and his experi
ence there stood him in good stead
when it came to the Job of fighting
a very real enemy instead of an
imaginary one. He went through the
campaigns at Ypres, Sommo and Arras,
and was twice wounded. Sergeant
Cormack speaks very highly of (he
morale of the allied irunps on the
western front, and the wonderful con
fidence that the men have in their offi
cers and in the knowledge that sooner
or later the Il'jns will be crushed.
"Never yet have 1 seen a British
officer ask his men to do anything that
he would fear to do himself," Sergeant
Cormack says, "and in most cases the
officers undertake enterprises that they
would not ask their men to do. With
the allied officers it is always 'Come
on' when the boys are going over the
lop, and it is the young second lieu
tenant who Is to be found at the head
of his men encouraging them and lead
ing them on. while with the Germans
the officers are always found behind
their men ordering them to 'Go on."'
The Johnny I.. Jonrn Shotm.
With preliminary arrangements per
fected. and committees of the Golden
Seal checked up on details, everything
is in readiness for the. arrival of the
Johnny .1. Jones exposition shows. The
special train will be deloured to the old
baseball park on West I'.road Street,
where the unloading process will be
effected at an early hour this morning.
Scores of men, with many horses, as
sisted by the elephants, make the work
of unloading an easy matter. Instead
of a barren field the circus grounds at
West Broad Street and the Boulevard
will be "a city white."
The grand opening will take place at
7:.'!?> o'clock to-night. The various at
tractions will throw open their doors,
and there will be ushed in a week of
jivons, jolly, jubilant, clean amuse
ment.
Spring Yiirielle* nl I.yrle.
The nawalinn form of musical ex
travaganza, which differs widely from
the American and Kuropean idea of
that style, of entertainment, will be
one of the most Interesting features of
the new bill at the Lyric to-day. The
one company of native actors, singers
and dancers, appearing in the enter
tainment in America is the Royal Ha
waiian Troupe, which has been engaged
for the first half of the week by Man
ager Rex. At the head of the band
of Sandwich Islanders Is Moke Kalwa,
the champion hula dancer of the world,
while the musical nnmhers are di
rected by Major Kealakai, a protege
uf the late King David lvalakaua and
Queen Lilloukani. The stage setting
represents a Hawaiian ? garden, beau
tiful anrJ plcturr-sr; ;e, and ?' 11 the cos
tumes are exact duplicates of the garb
of the Hawaiian troubadours. Other
interesting features of the new show
include I'atricola and Myer, who have
a erea\ comedy and dancelng act en
titled "The Girl and the Dancing fool." |

The hardest light that has ever been

The ant(prohibitionlsts are advanc

dangerous to tamper with the f.'on

that one State should attempt to say
what any other State, should do." Mr.

II a bad sort. He would talk quite
freely to me ,i!).~iit tnc war, tin.l some
?f !.i.' view.' F-HUtOed strann-: to niv
L'ri'.ish ears.
One day. when the Zeppelin raids
were at their ! ' inht, Brlegcr came to
!7ie with a garish story about the ilf
t-truct-.on of l.oi-oon an 1 several of the
leading provincial cities. Thousand* of
?11 izc: ?. h?? declared. had been sla n.
jind great conllagrations had destroyed
ii|u;Kf 1.ill .? -jt buildings.
"That's what we do to your country
for trying to starve us," he cried ex
ult i n g 1 y.
Speaking in German, I told him I did
not believe the Zeppa were capable of
rioins so much damage, and that scarce
ly a week elapsed in Munster without
the prisoners of war being assurod
that London had ceased to exist.
"I Brant you. Brieger." I added, "that
nothing would please the German peo
ple more than to know they had razed
London to the ground; and I am equally
sure that no tears would be shed in the
Fatherland, although all London's citi
zens. numbering nearly <!.ii00.00n. went
down to death beneath its ruins. But
why can't you be honest. Brieger?"
' What do von ?t> en fi *?'? nii?rii?l ??.?
farmer.
"Just tins. You know as well as 1 do
that even had there been no blockade
of li'Tnuny your military leaders would
have cm ployed these Zeppelins just
the same."
"No. no, never:" .shouted Briefer.
"We could never have thought of doing
such a thing. We are clean lighters.
We have heen forced to use the Jiep
l>elins to bring the Britishers to their
-"npes Anyway, all of your towns are
fortified, and the employment of our
lirships is legitimate warfare."

"l?ook here. Bi legcr," I replied. "I
im going to ask you one question?one
1 have put to a lot of your countrymen
?and I ?? ant a straight answer as be
tween max. and man."
"You shall have it." said F.rieger.
"Would your Kaiser find his advisers
not have blockaded Britain with the
li'-finan fleet if it had been powerful
enough for the Job at the outbreak of
the war?"
The German hesitated for a few mo
ments and th< n. remarked, "I am sure
that our Kaiser would never have tried
'.o starve the women and children of
LSrita i n."
"Your armien besieged Paris away
t?ack in the seventies," I reminded him.
"All! but that was different," cried
Krieger.
And that, my friends, is the method
?)( their reasoning in Germany. Herr
Krieger could not explain wherein the
liflVrence lay. He was confident. how
ever. that it had been perfectly right
tnd proper for the Germans to besiege
he capital of France, and that it was
ihsolutely disgraceful on the part or
the British to blockade his country.
While 1 was at Dtisseldorf. in KM 7. a
Jerman sentry used the very same ex
pression?"Ah! but that was different."
He had been cursing the British be
cause of an aerial raid made on a Ger
man town near the border.
"The British devils with their bomb"
leveled a whole street of houses, and
several women anil children were
foully murdered." he angri'y exclaimed.
"They are barbarians, anil our soldiers
should show them no mercy."
"You cannot have forgotten how the
Germans started this bombing of
towns." I said "What about London,
where hundreds of women and children
have been killed by the Zeppelins ami
the Got has?"
"Ah! hut that was different," replied
the sentry, and I was so disgusted with
the response that I turned my back to
him and walked away. fine cannot
hope to convince people of that type
by mere talk.

TO KHKP I I* Kftoll SI P|"l,\
I'ntil the month of December. I!'la,
I repeat, foodstuffs were plentiful in
the Fatherland, and this happy condi
tion of affairs was to some appreciable
extent due to the importations from
llolla nd.
1 Know that tremendous quantities
of goods came into the country from
Holland, because for weeks on end I
was employed at the railway station
in Munster helping to unload trainloads
of butter, margarine, cheese, eggs,
onions, etc., t te. Hundreds of my fel
low prisoners labored with me. tl.e
wages paid us being at the. rate of t;
cents per flay.
This remuneration was doled out in
the form i f canteen money, and c'ould
only be expended in the canteens at the
prison camp. It was made, of tin. and
was not negotiable outside the camp.
Butter was then selling at 10 cents
per pound, which for many of the pris
oners was really a prohibitive price.
The dllliculty. however, was skillfully
overcome in many instances, and not
all the butter that, arrived from Hol
land reached its proper destination.
Quite a number of secret tea parties
were held tip at the camp, and the
Dutch production was profusely in evi
dence on the war bread.
Probably the most convincing demon
stration <>f the healthiness of the Hun
larder at (his period was the action of
the authorities in presenting each of
the 8.000 prisoners at .Minister with a
pound of honey, a pound of biscuits, a
packet of tobacco, and a few apples.
These formed the only presents we ever
received from the Germans, with the
exception of kicks, bayonets, and other
"kultured" forms of abuse.
IN SPRING OF 11)1(1 I'AT
KOI.KM IIKGA.V TO WORIIY
In the spring of 131C the fat folks
i?f Munster commenced lo wear a wor
ried look. The butchers' shops were
not so well stocked as they had prev
iously been, and both the quantity and
the quality displayed pitiful signs of
deterioration- And prices soared sky
ward In u manner which produced dis
quietude in the minds of the thrifty
housewives.

The Pioneers
in the
Third liberty Loan
AVE you decided to invest in the Third Lib
JLJ- erty Loan?
We congratulate you.
We congratulate you bocausc of your decisive
ness of character as demonstrated in having thus
promptly made up your mind.
The man or woman who makes a decision
promptly (not hastily) and then promptly puts
that decision into execution is a far greater
asset to his city and to society at large than one
who, like our Mexican neighbor across the
border, is forever consigning the execution of
a task to some nebulous future, "manana,"
to-morrow.
All great enterprises, from the discovering
of America to the working out of a successful
business career, are. in process, the sum total
of doing many small things without delay.
Doing and not delaying is a fine habit.
Developing it, one finds that prompt decision
and dispatch of decisions constantly stimulate
the will, fitting the character for constantly
bigger things.
Your ability to decide promptIv to buv bonds
of the T111RD LIBERTY LOAN is an ability for
which you should be thankful.
Having decided, your execution of your deci
sion?to-day?will mark you as possessed of
traits which either have carried or will carry
you far toward success.

Clear your skin113
Make your face
a business asset
That skin-trouble may he more than
a source of buffering and embarrassment
? it may lie holding you back in the
business world, keeping you out of a
better job for which a good appearance
is required. Why "take a chance" when
Ointment heals skin-eruptions so easily ?

About Galeski Glasses.
Some of our patrons think
that because Galeski
('.lasses are superior, there
must be some process in
(heir making not generally
known.
The answer is easy. The
best materials and machin
ery are used with great
care by men whose skill
and good judgment are
born of long experience.
That is why Galeski
