This is said to kill the rust germs and also to aid in the prompt sprouting of the seed.

WIUTK YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS PLAINLY. v (German Democracy Bulletin) "The great majority of immigrants i Mong- to the poorer classes," said Richard I.ieber in a speech in In dianapolis recently. "But no matter ; how poor or well to do, they belong in ! a circumscribed class out of which j they cannot move except in extraor : dinary circumstances. What has : America done for them? If it had j not done another thing than to re ; move this damnable barrier it would i be entitled to our undying thanks and devotion. Here we meet on a com ; mon plane; in Germany we were as signed to a definite spot in their med- : leval layer cake and there we would j stay, our children and grandchildren. I "You remember, of course, that in Germany the youngest lieutenant is i eligible to court attendance, whereas 1 in civil service the rank has to he .very high to be 'most graciously com- manded. That circumstance gave rise to the striking expression attributed to a shavetail of a Potsdam guard ! officer: 'In civilian life, human beings j only begin with the rank of private counselor.'' ,"llow many of us under this classi i tication would have a right to oon 1 sider ourselves human beings at all? "It may be said that this is merely i a joke, but I know whereof I speak. ; for my father was an officer of the : government and the army and aJ : though he had practically only three j men between himself and the emper , or, I do remember how that high ; minded and liberal man ached under trie restrictions of class and rank. I for one, got enough of it in time, and although I have many pleasant and even tender memories of the old country, they are strictly disconnected from any tolerance of the absolute and medieval claptrap of royalty and its adulators. "To those few, however, who even now fail in unqualified loyalty to our country, and who still live in their thought in Germany, to those few I say: "You are not wanted over there and you are not needed here. You want to be a citizen of two countries and you are a citizen nowhere. Germany sneers at you for your academic sym pathies and the United Stales holds you in contempt for your pitiful at tempt to be true to two political Wives.' "Walter Damrosch and I, about ten years ago, had discussed America and Germany; when speaking of the many beautiful things abroad, he suddenly sighed and exclaimed ' But with all. should I want to be the same Walter Damreseh in Ger many that I am in America, I would at least have to be Landgrave or Thuringla or Archduke of Luxem burg.'
