John B. Gough. The Howl of the Yellow Dog The origin of a report on the streets of Phoenix Monday evening should be investigated. It was a leport of what is called the "yellow dog" variety. It was, in effect, that the American army opposing the (irrman offensive south of the Marnc had been anni hilated. As a matter of fact, there had been not the tligh'cst basis, for such a statement. According to all the news that had come over the wires at that time, or that later came in the night, the American troops had acquitted themselves well and success fully. They had yielded but for a moment and then had driven the Germans back. They had accomplished all that their most optimistic countrymen had ex pected of them, and more, than many had hoped tney ou!d accomplish in the face of trained German sol diery. It may be profitable for people who start and circulate reports of this character to know that thereby they are bringing themselves within the pur view of the department of justice. The Espionage Act is sweeping and comprehensive. One accused of offenses against it has not at hand those usual de fenses against accusations of crime. There is, in fact, i presumption of his guilt rather than of his inno cence. He is apt to have a hard time of it if the machinery of the act is set in motion against him. Such reports may have one of two origins. One may lie of enemy origin; it may be started with the object of discouraging or distressing loyal Americans and, anyway, it manifests an animus against the country. Another may have its inception in a lying individual who really has nothing against his coun try, but who actually thinks he is patriotic. Bad news has a fascination for him. He is the kind of man who feels a joy in a fire even though his friend's house be burning. There are some men who would go to the extent of starting such a fire; they are called pyromaniacs. They are not malicious and have no other purpose in view than to gratify a desire to sec flames and belching smoke. They are to be distinguished from the incendiary whose object is revenge or gain. There are many persons who feel a positive joy in bad news, though it closely affects their friends; who welcome and forward scandalous reports and suffer disappointment when such reports are dis proved. This tendency is always present in some degree in gossiping persons. But they should understand that gossiping about mcrican misfortunes in war may be very dangerous lusiness. This is the open season for "yellow dogs," it whom agents of the department of justice are mthorized to take a shot. It is the duty of patriotic "Itizens to point out the whereabouts of these "yellow togs." "A Critical Situation" Inspiring history of the Great War is being writ ten from day to day in the citations for bravery re ported by General Pershing. If we read every one of them, no matter how long the list, we will be better Americans. Here is one: "Second Lieutenant William B. Moore On June 6, 1918, he volunteered and took a truck load of ammunition and material into the town of Bourcschcs over a road swept by artillery and machine gun fire, thereby reliev ing a critical situation." History of, this sort does not use adjectives. It is written from the field of blood and iron, where leseription is a pathetic thing. When Pershing says Lieutenant Moore relieved a critical situation we are afe in accepting that it was all the term. Implies. American lives were hanging by a thread, the line of civilization was threatened and the gray horde of Huns was snapping at that break, straining to force through. t No one is surprised that there was a Lieutenant Moore to take that truck load of materials through Hell to relieve that critical situation. There is al ways a Moore, a Hobson, a Farragut, a Kunston, to meet any emergency of American arms. But that truck load of ammunition and material ivhat if it had not been there and American bravery would have been futile? That's our business we stay-at-homes to see that those trucks, piled high, are there. We must be sure of it. Our Liberty bonds buy ammunition and material. The Fourth Liberty Loan is coming for six or eight billions and wc must be ready to back up tha,t wonder army of Lieutenant Moorcs, The Opportunity of Phoenix Wc trust that Interest in the forthcoming elec tion to vote bonds for the city's part in the valley drainage project will not be allowed to lag. For this purpose $100,000 is asked and that is a very small turn compared with the benefits that will result from the execution of the project. How necessary its execution is, was lately shown in the water level that has been encountered seven and a half feet below the surface of the capitol grounds. One thing is certain, and that is, that if nothing Is done to reduce it, the level will steadily rise. The health authorities, not as a part of the cam paign in favor of the bond issue, have recently pointed out to us the danger involved in the backing up of water in cesspools and drains. Wc think no more need be said regarding that, after our attention has once been called to' it. Any citizen of average intelli gence knows what that would mean. The benefits to 'Phoenix' from the execution of the project would be of two kinds, preventive and active. Eitherwould far outweigh the proposed cost of our part in the campaign. Incidental to the re duction of the threatening water level is the appli cation of the water removed large areas of land now without water or without an adequate supply of water. Many thousands of new acres .would be brought into cultivation and all this would add to the prosperity and growth of Phoenix, ' 'v There are ' some people chronically opposed to bond issues for any purpose: there is to them some thing evil in the, sound. There are others who have fanciful schemes for getting rid of the surplus water, such schemes as' they have dreamed about and which they think would cost only a trifle to put into effect. The proposed plan, though, is one that has been carefully worked out by trained men. It is a very simple one. It proposes a beneficial use of the now menacing waters. . ' We cannot think the votes" of the chronic anti bond citizens and the dreamers will bo allowed to cut any figure in the election. A DREAM OF THE MAID The W. S. Dickey poetry prize at the University of Missouri was won this year by Miss Miriam Thur man of Wichita, Kansas, with "A Dream of the Maid." "Last night as I knelt' I slept, and dreamed I saw you lying dead. The chill rain fell on your face, it seemed, And made a pool by your head. I woke forlorn in the early morn Wet with the tears I had shed." "Dear wife, I fell by a stunted oak When the first glint of morning showed, Where the meadow frogs in the marshes croak With the harsh-voiced, rough tree-toad. Near a pool made brown w-ith leaves dropped down And over my body stowed." Oh, where did you ride, last night, last night. When the wind sobbed down the glade, The swirling mist hung thick and white, And I crossed myself and prayed?" "The wind blew shrill and bitter chill. And I fought by the side of the Maid." "But the time is long since gone, alack ! Since the holy Maiden died "But yesternight the Maid came back, . ' And, with her, France did ride. Her sword she drew and the whole night through I fought with a host by her side." "Her sword is broken and worn with rust " "Nay, it gleamed like a flame in her hand." "And her arms are moldy and buried in dust " "Full-armed I saw her stand. A radiance beamed from her helm and streamed Like a blazing, blood -red band. "Three Jilos were worked in her broidered vest. On her baldric and shield were three And a red gold cross she wore on her breast, And a mantle fell down to her knee. Her standard was white and the words shone bright In gold thread, JESU-Marie. "Throughout the night the shrapnel shell Rained down on every hand, And burst and flared like a glimpse of hell Through the dark of No Man's Land. In a narrow path like a mower's swath Silent she led our band. "In the cross and our own good steel our trust. Where the mist wraiths reel and dance We turned and 'cut and wheeled and thrust With never a backward glance. The radiant Jeanne cried 'JESU ON, WE RIDE TONIGHT FOR FRANCE !' "On, on we sped through the heaving black, For no water or sand dune stayed. Like the swift night wind and the flying wrack In the face of the cannonade, Fast, fast we flew the -whole night through And I fell at dawn by the Maid. "The ravens caw in the windy skies, The blackbird titlts in the tree, I stare at the clouds with dim, dead eyes, And the soft rain falls on me In the forest glade, but I rode with the Maid, And France, ah, France, is free !" HOOVERESQUE DELICACIES "Neurasthenia," said Mrs. Biggums to her cook, "I think we will have some chicken croquettes today out of that leftover pork and calves' liver." "Yes'm," said Neurasthenia, called Teeney for sh,ort. "An' we got a little bread dressin' what went wid the pork, mum. Shall I make some apple sauce out'n hit, mum?" Richmond Times-Dispatch, ADVICE "I want to know how to succeed in the world," said the young man to the older one. "Young fellow," said the gray haired individual, "right now you've got no business worrying about your own success. All you've got to do is to get a job in the army or navy and help to. win thewar. After that I'll be glad to give you a tip on how to become rich or famous." From the Detroit Free Press. PRESIDENT UNITES WNDURAS FACTIONS I frfililll 3S Dr. Francisco Bertrand.

The censor monkeyed somewhat with the letter of Ward Young to his moth er, Mrs. Otis E. Young, but he left enough of the missive to show that the young Phoenician likes the service in Franco and wants to be about where the star shells and the other bright lights are. He writes as follows: On Active Service with the American Expeditionary Forces, ' June 20. 1918 Dear Mother: . I feel like a new man again. We Just got back to our camp after another whack at i ritz. Am all cleaned up, bath, shave and clean clothes makes a fellow feel good. We had quite an experience this last time. We all worked hard until every thing was ready and then a few of us were picked to stay and finish the work. It was work too. I have worked hard many times before in my life. Once when I handled a single jack in the shaft of the Vindicator and another time Fair week in Phoenix when 1 had my little shop but mother dear, that w as boy's piav. In five hours I blis tered my hands in great shape. Hands that are calloused all the time from hard work, heartbreaking work, w ork I never could have done under other i circumstances. When one knows he is helping to win the war, it nerves him and strengthens him to greater effort well, we were all ready, most of the men went back to the camp in the morning. I was sitting in front of an open fire enjoying life, a bullet ex ploded in the fire and a piece of the shell hit me in the finger. I received first aid treatment at a dressing sta tion and was told to do no work. was one of the men picked to finish the work and then a little wound on the finger. When the boys started up the line from the dugout and left me, I felt like a lost soul. I went up to where a few of them were receiving their final instructions from a lieutenant and begged to be allowed to go. He con sented. He needed me. My small knowledge of work I did for the Santa Fe was all that got me the chance. We got up there and started to work. The word was passed to us we only had 30 minutes. We had la good hour's work ahead of us to get ready, the race against time started. My pardner and I had not a second to spare. The artillery onened up the . . . . . (censored) Hun. Just as the whistle blew, I finished my work, just in the nick of time. Oh, how glad I was to think I had succeeded, but I had no time to think of that then. The shrapnel was breaking all around us, the star shells made everything as light as day. The machine gun bullets in their search for u- made me think of a rattlesnake at night on the desert; von can hear him but you don't know where he is or where he will strike. On through the trenches we went, slipping and sliding, running and crawling. Fin ally, wc made the. dugout. Check was taken and all had returned safely. One boy hurt his leg in a fall, that was all. I had a smoke and then crawled into bed a tired but happy soldier boy. Oh, mother, it is a great game, the excite ment of the moment. You can't bfear yourself shout for the noise, the great shells overhead going both ways, the swish of the machi"- gun bullets, the wonderful lights. It all went to my head like a glass of champagne on a cold night. It was wonderful. I am very well, mother dear, and will be working hard in a day or two, just as soon as my finger heals up. 1 received three copies of The Re publican, May 5, 6 and 7; was glad to get them. I read ads and alL I was interrupted about two hours ago. Had to go to the hospital. The doctor wanted to sec if there was any brass lett in the wound. He found none. Just time and nature and it will be all O. K. Write often mother, dear to your three soldier boys. Give my love to Dad and Otis and tell them to write often too. I .saw Vinton Hammels name in one of the papers. I wish you would send me his address. You can call his moth er up on the phone and find out what It is. It is time for mess, supper as it Is known at home, or dinner as you would call it, but the army name is the most appropriate. So will close. Keep me informed of the news and everything. Kcga"s to all my friends. Your loving son and soldier boy. Ward. Priv..W.. W. Young, Co. B 30th Kngineers, A. E. F. O. K. H. J.
