A Contrast.
The German military party says that the "good
German sword" is going to see to it that no "soft
peace" is granted to their enemies; that "cold steel"
Will win the war.
r A German firm of wholesale druggists issues an
^advertisement in which it rccitcs the fact "to bear
hunger without at the same time suffering from
headache or other indisposition is very difficult for
?lost people" and then praises a newly invented
drug which, "though not forming a substitute for
the minimum daily sustenance, is an excellent prep
aration for stilling premature hunger and enables
. one to hold out until the next meal time."
The Kaiser, in a recent interview granted at the
front to his pet newspaper correspondent, showed
?harp irritation at the prevailing spirit in civilian
Germany. He said he reaHy approved the idea of
running "excursion trains" from German cities to
the line of the trenches, so that his people could
tee the kind of devastation and destruction from
which German militarism had saved them, and
which would surely be their fate also if they per
mitted Germany's enemies to be victorious.
Word was received yesterday showing that May
Day was celebrated in Austria-Hungary in its usual
fashion, and that the discontent and spirit of re
volt among the laboring classes is now more acute
than it ever has been before.
Apprehension in Germany over the fate of the
Hindenburg-Ludendorff offensive continues to show
itself sharply and clearly despite the relentless cen
sorship suppression which lias been doubled and
tripled since the military party gained the upper
hand. The lull of the past week has evoked in the
German mind all the furtive fears that such a huge
shambles could be expected to evoke. It has taken
all the palaver and the assurance of the "military
experts" to keep the Oerman spirit from being
shaken by the frightful losses of man power and
from being obessed by the intolerable fact of fail
ure already at hand in what was to be the cli
macteric effort of their military masters to force a
decision and close the war.
Germany internally is aquiver with doubt and
hunger and rebellious reaction at the very moment
when her military ring has reached a new pinnacle
of arrogance based on the offensive in the West.
-^Jlore reserves arc being rushed to France and
Mwliaders; the battle is to be renewed with even
greater intensity than before; Macedonia and the
Eastern front are being combed for troops, and
German prisoners have been demanded of Russia,
so that it is quite evident that a new blow?perhaps
a group of simultaneous drives reaching from Ypres
to Verdun?is being prepared.
The military ring can see nothing but conquest
and victory. It has reached that paranoiac state of
what the French call the "idee fixe," or the fixed
idea, which is that Germany will and must con
quer. That is about all there is to the present state
^of German psychology. In the meantime, the logic
of the empty stomach is becoming more and more
inescapable in both of the central empires. If
Germany can be held now in the West, or at least
held to minimum and unimportant gains of terrain,
we may look for rapid developments from the heart
of Germany and Austria.
Born and Reared to Be Ugly.
In his "Evolution of a Baby-Killer" our historian
errs somewhat in stating that the Kaiser started
as "an ordinary wilful" child. Wilful he was, but
he was one of the most extraordinary boys ever
born. He hated his mother, showed it from the
time he could first express his sentiments in words
?nd, just as soon as he was able, he made her life
one continued round of insult and abuse. Heavens
be praised! such boys are most extraordinary.
Wilhelm hated his mother because she was
English and bccausc, when on a drive ordered by
her, he was so injured that his left hand became
"withered." To be physically "withered" was too
much for the proud head of a nation going mad
?ver physical and material power.
In the vast majority of instances, a cripplc be
tomes sour, vengeful, supersensitive, selfish, ar
rogant and altogether ugly, or the opposite. As to
disposition, there arc very few ordinary halfway
:aaes amongst cripples. They're cither mighty
?nean or mighty fine folks.
Willie Hohenzollern started out believing that
IC was the greatest boy on earth, and there was
ilways that withered arm to keep nagging at his
lelief. It really was tough on a boy who was bc
?g taught that might is right and a Hohenzollern
san't have too much of it His affliction, logically,
? made him the extraordinary child that he was and
?he extraordinary devil that he is.
Art Cettames, ami Others.
We discover that "American designers have been
knmensely successful in pleasing the French-train
:d taste of their smartest clients and a splendid
iisplay of creative costume art was made at the
'ecent spring fashion show."
Madame Marguerite, of Chicago, whom we
lon t know but who may be plain. Mrs. Maggie
Smith, of Chicago, has just been awarded first
>rize by The Fashion League of America for two
lesigits, thus described:
"A tailored costume, smart, simplicity incarnate.
!t is developed in navy blue tricotine and follows
he slender lines of the season. Small flap pockets,
- slender, deep-notched reveres, and a slight indica
ion of. a waistline marks the mode. The skirt
catures the inverted pleat.
"The coat-dress is a semi-formal costume sug
jesting the Chinese influence. It is of mandarin
)lue and canary yellow in Rochanara crepe, the
vaistcoat revealing brilliant embroideries. The
. -oat has a distinct suggestion of the Chinese."
One question of highly national importance is
his:
To what extent arc the women of this country
fotng to give * ieir thought and effort to new styles
'
of flap-pockcti, deep-notched reveret, Rochanin
crepe, brilliant embroideries and ?ueb, and to what
extent to saving money and food and catting oat
luxuries?
Unless our war business has the solid, loyal,
mental, moral and hard work support of the wom
en of America we art going to have an unneces
sarily long, bloody and wasteful war. Are millions
of American women going to fall in behind the
"smartest clients" of the fashion gods and god
desses, as usual, and fail to_ see that a deep
notched revera means one less war stamp bought,
Rochanara crepe, a whole book of thrift stamps
and "brilliant embroideries" a liberty bond?
Chinese suggestions??! (Put your own word
in this blank, Mr. Man.) The Chinese women in
war time wear the plainest, cheapest styles they
can find. They have to. Lose this war, and that's
just exactly what American women will have tol
Abas these Art League priae costumes! A
prize for the designer who gets up costumes to fit
the present and threatening necessities of the war!
A priae for the costume that proclaims loyalty to
America and love of our fighting boys in Europe!
There is no woman in America but would look
lovable and beautiful in such.
Pay Yw Own Dm*, Says McAdoo.
In refusing to permit club dues of railroaders to
longer be paid out of the operating funds, Railroad
Director McAdoo has hit the railroad higher-ups
right where they swallow their asparagus.
It has been a matter of general, and often par
ticular comment that when questions of rates, track
age or other rights came up between' municipality
and railroads, chambers of commerce, commercial
clubs and similar bodies very often voted in friend
liness with the railroad magnates. A large part of
the vole was cast by freight and passenger solici
tors and the smaller executive officers of the rail
roads whose club dues were paid out of the roads
"operating expenses." ?
The operating eapense money came out of the
railroads' patrons, shippers and passengers, so that
the process virtuaWy was to take the patron s
money and i?e it for e?ect against their municipal
interests. A doubfe-bucklc cinch, according to raw i
Arizona philosophy!
Tfce D*vil a Saiat Wu He."
Are those German autocrats becoming tender
hearted? They say they're sorry they shot up that
Paris church on Good Friday, but ask how the
French could expect a German gunner 75 miles
away to distinguish between a church and other
buildings. "But," they add, "our piety was evi
denced by our not bombarding Paris the day the
victims of that church incident were buried."
Those Germans may become both tender
hearted and pious, as "the vilest sinner may re
turn," but we guess it will be after trying the
effect of blowing to pieces a few funerals. Only
funerals, added to the hospitals, ferries, passenger
boats, schools, churches, nurseries and maternity
homes, are needed to complete their list of vile
deeds, and the Germans are sure thorough, even
in their villainies.
Jesse Livermore, a Wall Street operator who
created a great deal of talk by selling large stock
holdings, says he sold because he has acute indiges
tion. What's in a name?
Speaking of economy?most of us are talking
about it all the time whether we practice it or not
?we commend the practice of a man who eats only
twice a day, but combines breakfast and lunch.
The Huns are again accusing Uncle Sam of
sending aviators to France on hospital ships. \\ c
don't believe it. We think Uncle Sam is too smart
i an old fellow to risk (he lives of aviators so rcck
I U s sly.
With due respcct we suggest that the man who
starts two tunnels from opposite sides of a moun
tain and makes both ends meet shows no greater
skill than the woman who takes the old man's
salary and makes both ends meet.
"I notice," postcards a school teacher, "that the
Society of College Teachers, in a meeting in Colum
bus, discussed the question, 'What Can Be Done to
Relieve Wartime Shortage of Teachers?' A great
deal could be done to relieve my shortage by in
| creasing my salary."
Aa Important Point
The conversation in the lobby of a Washington
hotel turned to the subject of summer boarders
when the following incident was related by Rep
resentative Ernest W. Roberts, of Massachusetts:
One June day a city man went to the country
to see about securing summer board with Uncle
Josh, and arriving about dinner time he was in
vited to take a place at the table. This he did,
and afterward sauntered out on the veranda and
lighted a cigar.
"Let's get down to business. Mr. Jones, said
he to the farmer. "I want to say that I enjoyed
that meal very much."
"Ye did, eh?" returned Uncle Josh, gazing far
over the green field. ....
"Yes," responded the city man, ' and if that is
a fair sample of the meals you serve I think we
can easily come to terms."
"Jes' a minute," interposed Josh, with a thought
ful expression. "Fust of all I would like to know
if that was a fair sample of your appetite."?Phil

Oh, Jacky on the salty seas and Sammy at the
front.
It's yours to do the heavy work, you bet you!
You have the heavy job to do, you've got to bear
the brunt,
And we've no other choice except to let you;
But if your troubles trouble yon, consider now and
then
(And maybe it will help you not to mind 'em).
There are always one more billion bones and one
more million men.
And always just as many molt behind 'em.
We don't want to waste a billion, or, much less, to
waste a man,
But we're with you to the utmost jot and tittle,
For to help out human freedom we'll do anything
we can.
And compared to what you're up against, its
little.
So, tell Giovanni, Tommy, Jacques and all the gang
again.
Until they grin like little Jackcy Horner:
There are always one more billion bones and one
more million men,
And they're on the way and just around the
corner.
Your Uncle Sam's in earnest and his earnest means
a heap.
And he usually finds a way to show it.
He's slow to show his wrath, and some folks tay
he's been asleep.
But when he wakes he's wide-awake, you know it!
It's hard for us to realize from picture and from
pen;
The things you see so well, they almost blind
you.
But stfuays one more billion bones and one more
million men
Arc coming, coming, coming right behind you,

Several weeks ago George Creel
made the statement that he was tol
erably slad your I'ncle Samuel didn't
enter this conflict prepared.
This statement, of course, was
made wholly on authority of the
llocky Mountain-well Senator Sher
man would say "dervish'- if he were
writing this?and was not based on
anything Mr.- Creels chief, the Presi
dent, had said.
We quote leisurely from a number
of remarks the President has made
on the subject to show that Mr. Creel
almost rejected as null and void what
Hie President has hitherto said on the
subject.
In December, 1914: "We must de
pend ? ? ? upon a citizenry trained
nnd accustomed to arms."
In January, 1916: "No man in the
I nlted States knows what a ulngle
Meek or n single day or a single hour
may bring forth."
Again, in January, 1916, fifteen
months before wo entered the war,
iti.nd you: "Now no man can confi
dently say whether the United States
Will b? drown into the struggle or
not."
SHU again, in January. 1916: "A
year ago (January, 1915) it did seem
as if America might rest secure with
out great anxiety and take it fori
sranted that she would not be drawn
Into this terrible maelstrom, but those
first six months was merely the be
ginning."
And so on and so on. as Col. Harvey
would say, to show that Mr. Creel I
Simply spoke what he himself, bor-1
dering on socialism and the rest
sometimes, thought of what this coun
try had been doing.
We doubt if Mr. Creel really gave
thought to what he was saying. He'
Is wild and Impetuous and thought-i
less, and Inclined to that school of
writers which would rather dig up
skeletons for th? public to view than
to construct for the edification of the
public some whole being which would
reflect all the virtues men have.
We might remark that, in this con
nection. the navy may be said to have
been prepared for war. We have the
evidence of it now. though some of
us were inclined to think then ihat
?t was not the truth to state that
I such was the case.
| We quote the President a?caln from
t a January speech to fhow both this,
and to further refute what Mr Creel

there is no question. The proba
bility that reason and justice will
prevail in the treatment of the car

the long run we will come a toler

railroads tolerant of the people and
the people of the roads, etc., etc.,
to a refreshing degree.
If that day comes It will, of,

THE OBSERVER.
METHODIST DEBATE
HIT TO PASTORATES
Clash Follow? Bid to Hold Down
Pastors Terms.
Atlanta. Ga.. May 7.?The Metho
d'.st Episcopal church south confer-j
ence today took up a greater part
of its sessions with spirited debate;
on the question of removing the
time limit on the pastorate of the
church.
The debate was not finished at
adjournment, but it was predicted
the time limit would be removed by
a good majority.
The discussion started when a
if solution was offered by Dr. R. Q.
Smith, calling for the removal of
the time limit to be set ag a special
order for Wednesday, May 8.
James Cannon, Jr., said that the
Virginia conference had for many
years favored the removal of the
iimit.
Others supporting the resolution
were Dr. E. G. Mann, Kentucky;
Dr. H. M. Duboss. of Nashville: Dr.
A. P. Lyons. Dr. C. O. Jones and Dr.
Briscoe Carter.
Dr. Bascomb Anthony spoke in fa
for of a time limit except for special
work. He designated those favoring
unlimited pastorates as believing in
"building pipe organs, raising collec
tions and holding their jobs.**
Dr. Marvin T. How said the experi
ence of the church had shown the
necessity of the time limit plan. Oth
ers opposing the resolution were. Dr.
T. D. Ellis,, of Macon, and Dr. T. F.
Temple, of Texas.
Dr. E. If. Kearn, of Baltimore, of
fered an amendment making the time
limit eight years instead of four. A
series of Sunday school lectures was
opened this evening.

New York, May 7.
I've been hunting all day.
For the upper section.
Of my striped pa Jama?
And I haven't washed.
Behind my ears.
For three days.
Everything has gone wrong.
At my house.
This morning the maid quit.
Because I blacked my shoes.
With the ivory clothes brush.
And wiped my hands.
On the clean chintz curtains.
And I have burned three holes.
In the parlor couch.
By KOing to slc*?p reading.
With a cigar in my hand.
And the dog has the mangr.
And needs to be curried.
Or something.
This afternoon Melba.
The pet canary.
Gave up the ghost.
Starvation or malnutrition.
Carried her off.
But it was not my fault.
It was- my wife's fault.
Rhe had no business.
To go back home on a visit.
And leave me all alone.
In this great big flat.
There's something going on.
Around this plsce at night, too.
Last night I heard It moan.
And again early this morning.
And again I saw a hand
At the foot of my bed.
And I held my breath.
And waited and waited.
And Anally saw it again.
And I threw the shoe.
And I don't know.
But I believe.
Two of my toes.
Will never be any more good.
I hope that guy.
That swiped the milk.
From the front door.
Gets the colic.
To think of men fighting
To make the world safe.
For a fellow.
Who would be that mean.
Gee! But it is lonesome.
When the wife goes away.

Maw York. May 7.?Women took
their seats In political conclave at

members of the executive committee
sat down with the men leaders at
headquarters. Every effort was ex

and other Tammany dlgnltarlee gave
the thirty or more new members a
cordial welcome.
Mr. Murphy's face was wreathed In
amllea as he greeted the women, many
of whom he had never before met. |
"Only one of the women members |
offered a suggestion recommending
new legislation, but she said a mouth
ful." declared one of the braves after
the meeting. The woman was Mrs.
Elizabeth A. Vibbard. of the Twenty
third Assembly District.

by a brief address upon the part wom
