The question is asked by Frederick William Hohenzollern, some time crown prince of the fallen German empire. The question . itself indicates a dawning comprehension of his position before the world. For four years this eldest offspring of William the Devil has been spitting in the face of civilization. He has done nothing to win friends, everything to make enemies whose undying hatred will pursue him all his days. He sent his fcllow-coiintrymcn to death in hordes at Verdun while he caroused in safety in ft stolen French chateau far out of bul let-rangc. He ordered these men to death callously to cause death and terror among the French. The list of his offenses is long?too long to repeat. He may well ask: "Have 1 any friends left?" Can such a man ever have friends? * Who wants to be branded the fr^nd of such a slinking coward? He) amusing himself now by skating on Dutch canals. Thin ice may befriend him. Listening to the Grate Fire. The wood-fire in the open gTate. The quiet hour of a wintry evening. Who does ? not revel in the combination? The pictures in the flames. The musings as the lire crackles, the only sound in the stillness. Ancients in Persia, in other lands and times, worshipped fire. It was the symbol of purity, of purification. Poets have found the fire on the heartlr an inspiration. Painters have seen pictures in the glowing coals. We see them, too, in the silence of the evening time. But the wood-fire in the open grate is more than a symbol of purity, more than a creature comfort, more than a sign of personal prosperity, more than a setting for dream-pictures. It's a symbol of action. It's a picture of ambition. It's an incitement to endeavor. The flames arc never still while there's material to reach. Reaching, reaching, grasping, keeping, never content, never idle. Action! That's what the wood-fire in the open grate is saying. The flames leap high and higher so long as there is fuel to feed them. When the fuel is consumed the flames wither and die. Ambition must be fed. That's the lesson of the fire. You can't get the fire of ambition to burn in the worker's brain to energize his hand unless it is fed, and fed again. Take away incentive, make labor ineffective, and the laborer's ambition dies. And what is a man without an ambition?* An ax without an edge. Employers need to think about this. To get the best out of the man, give scope to ambition. Put incentive before him. Put a light in the window of the goal. The wood-fire in the open grate is an incitement to endeavor. There is no idleness in the fire. There is fulfillment, accomplish ment in the flame which attains its end. We look into it and are inspired. We orght all to have an open wood-fire. Set your mark there over the grate. Help the other fellow to do the same. Mystery Beckons. Mystery tempts to ruin, fascinates to disaster, leads to luxury, hires to love and lucre! Mystery surrounding Kidd's alleged hidden treasure perpetuated his memory as a pirate when the man was really a character to whose name stigma was to a degree unjustly attached. The unkown beckoned Columbus. The mystery of the hereafter has influenced many to a deep study of subject theological. Ofttimes it liberates new thoughts, fre quently it fetters minds. r Mystery enervates, it creates suspense; suspense exhausts, agi tates, churns the mind. Z But the mystery of what may result from experimentation and combination urges chemist and inventor to persist; keeps hope burn ing, calls forth energy and resourcefulness, pitches aspiration and ingenuity to the key that produces new notes of discovery. Mystery suggests possibilities and possibilities suggest action. i By any other name Germany is still the goat of the expense ac count. . "Have I any friends?" asks Fred Hohenzollern. Well, there's your hounddog, Putzel, Fred. ?;?Fred Hohenzollern says he's going skating in Holland. Why not go before the ice gets too thick, Fred? Something always takes the perfection out of joy. No sooner is the world rid of autocracy than Bolshevism is born. "Eddie" Richenbacher, they say, can pick his job in the auto, aviation or movie fields when he gets back. It pays to be a hero, doesn't it? Five hundred newspaper men en route to the Peace Conference! And yet some people are worried for fear its proceedings won't re ceive enough publicity. Sail, Ho! Now the panting ships returning. Filled with love and hope and yearning, Leap along the foam. Laden deep from keel to gunnel. Breathing cheer from every funnel," As the boys come home. Welcome rings from hut and hall! Welcome one and welcome all! Dick and Tom and Harry! Welcomc Jack and welcome Joe! Welcome hero-lads! but oh! Some there arc who tarry. Some who should be of your band Linger in that gallant land Which they sought to save. Holding there the final trench, Legioned with their comrade-French, Bivouacked in the grave. Welcome to you, gentlemen! Welcome to you yet again. Though these words remind you There's a prayer with every cheer; Every kiss conveys a tear For the boys behind vou!
