INVASION OF AMERICA
OUR CONSTANT AIM IS TO SELL THE BEST SOODS

How the World Moves
Only a few years ago everybody bought coffee green and roasted it at
home. Now how manv persons will you meet who have never seen
coffee in the green state? Coffee roasting and coffee blending has got
to be quite an art. We will not tell you our coffees are "the best."
Everybody lays claim to that distinction, and everybody cannot le
right. All we ask is a trial, and if your purchase proves satihfactory,
we feel sure that your relations will be lasting ; if not, all the argu
ment in the world would not prevail.
GIVE US A TlilAL.

A wbrCf for the invasion of tbe
Uni-i K:atfS by a German army has
t-fn pr iii:ed by I.if uUlumm vou Edt-1
sli iui of tbe general staff or tbe Otr
uiau army The author pit-supposes a
victory by the Imperial army. and. In
deed, would dispatch his army of - In
vasion confidently toward America In
the wake of the warships, says the
New York Journal. He thinks our
regular troops available for defense
would amount to not more than 'JO.tKXJ
men. and feels little fear of volunteers
or militia because the national guard
did not. as a whole, offer Its services
for the war with Spain, and because
they are "badly armed and drilled.
The strategist outlines his plan in an
essay which he has caused to be pub
lished in Berlin.
War against the United States of
North America would be carried on un
der conditions necessarily different
from those of a campaign against Eng
land. In recent years we have had several
occasions of political difficulties witb
that uation. for tbe most part arising
out of commercial questions. I'titil
the present time these li::;,i n!t!es liave
been smoothed over by i-uu.i.-u'i on
our part. Hut siuce there is a luu:i
to concessions we may ask what pow
erful means- we can make use of. if
need arise, to check the action of the
I'uited States against our interests; In
other words, to impose our will on
them by force.
Now-, our first element of power is
our navy. It has every prospect of
combating with success the naval
forces of the United States, dispersed
as they are over two oceans. But it
is evideut. in view of the vast extent
of territory and the immense resources
of the United States, that a naval de
feat would not be decisive.
For the very reason of the great ex
tent of the United States an invaslou
of the interior is not to be considered
seriously, but there would be chances
of success in striking blows upon the
seacoast ami cutting the great arteries
of exportation and importation so as to
paralyze the industrial and commer
cial life of the United States, which
would oblige that power to accept
if the mobilization of the transport
squadron and the corps of invasion le
gan at the moment of departure of our
CgUting fleet for American Waters, it
will be admitted that the invading
troops might come into action on Amer
ican soil at the end of about four
weeks. The United States are uot in
a condition to bring into opposition
within an equal time an army equal
In numbers to our corps of invasion.
Actually the regular army of the
United States Is on a footing of U5.000
men. but of this number there are not
more than 30.000 available for the de
fense of the mother country. Besides
that, there must le deducted from that
number at least lO.OOO men who can
not be spared from surveillance of the
Indian territories and from tbe mari
There remain, then, only 20.000 regu
lar troops for the actual campaign.
True, there are lesides about 1WMKH)
militia, but in the late war tbe greater
part did not answer the call.
Because of the length of the voyage
the transortation of the Ceriuau
troops could not be done by surprise,
but still the landing could be accom
plished suddenly at an unexpected
point of the coast. When we consider
that the Americans have no plan of
mobilization well worked out in time
of pea-e and take into account also the
inexperience and weakness of the r gu
lar army of the United States, we may
confidently hope that a corps of in
vasion. - operating with siid'eiiuess.
would have chances of success.
We could not dream, of course, of
perfiianent occupation of any great
extent of American territory, which
would require an army of too bisrb ef
fetiveness, but it would le reaxihle
to occupy the principal maritime cities
A series of coast landings, using
comparatively small forces, could be
applied to this purpose. It would be
difficult for the Americans to oppose
them with success. Although their
excellent system of railways would en
able the Americans to concentrate in
short time troops at tbe threatened
points on the coast, the Invader, by
feints of landing now at one point,
now at another, could at last attain
his end with the co-operation of the
The corps of Invasion could even
take the offensive against the ene
my's forces while the latter were yet
Imperfectly concentrated, or he could
avoid an attack on their pan by re
embarking and moving away to land
at still another point.
It la well to remark here that Ger
many is the only great power in poi
tkn single handed to attack tbe Unit-
"States. England In case of war
witu that nation could only gain suc
cess on tbe sea. She wouJd be power
less to defend Canada, where the
Americans could make good their mar
itime reverses. Finally no other great
power than Germany has of her own
