Sold everywhere.—Adv. GERMANS FROM IKE INSIDE; ENGLISH GIRL'S LETTERS ARE MOST SEARCHING ANALYSIS I New York, Oct. 4—Was there a real flesh and blood English girl j named Christine Cholmondeley? Did she really write letters from Germany wonderfully revealing the state of mind of the German people ι Just before tlielr master made war, I or are her letters only pieces of clev | er fiction ? ι These questions have all the liter ary sharks arguing in a circle. Borne ! say the letters bear the indubitable stamp of reality. Others say they I reveal so complete a romance that j they must be Action. And still oth I ers think the book Is fiction built up on real letters. The publishers, the Macmlllan Company, reply all they know is: ! Months ago one of the firm met so j daily a Mrs. Alice Cholmondeley and 1 there was some casual comment 1 about a proposed book. There the I thing dropped and no one has ever ι seen or heard personally from Mrs. Cholmondeley since. However, a lawyer called and presented a manu script by her and it was accepted and printed. The book purport* to be made up of letters written by Mrs. Cholmon deley's daughter Christine, who went to Berlin the latter part of May, 1914, to study under a great master of the violin. There she met an army officer became engaged to him, and was torn from his arms In August when Eng land entered the war. High officials told Christine her lover could 4iot marry an enemy woman. She died friendless and alone in a German hos pital, as her mother was not allowed to come to her. ) Besides telling this story the letters are full of the spirit she encountered She found all the Germans talking constantly of war long before the murder of the Austrian crown prince. They were filled with a lust for loot and blood. They groveled before their superiors. 6he describes the scenes In Berlin when it was known war was to be de clared, when she saw grave old Ger man professors and staid old German housewives shrieking, sweating, cheer ing. throwing the hats and bonnets ujj In the air every time some royal princeling put in hi» appearance. Some of the keenest criticisms and analysie of Germans found anywhere are in these letters. For Instance, the great violinist in one of his truth telling moods says to her: "We are still so near, as a nation, to the child and to the savage. To the clever child and the powerful sav age. We like simple and grose emo tions and plenty of them; obvious tastes In our food and our pleasures, and a great deal of It; FAT IN OUR FOOD AND FAT IN OUR WOMEN. And, like the child, when we mourn we mourn to excess, and enjoy our selves In that excess; and, like the savage, we are afraid, and therefore hedge ourselves about with observ ances, celebrations, cannon, kings. "In no other country is there more tlian one king. In ours we find three and an emperor necessary. j "The savage who fears all things does not fear more than we Germans. We fear other nations, we fear other people, we frar public opinion to an , extent Increiîj^^^Tvefear our own rkfiners. ft He adds the on]v^W"oh~ thèy <jo not fear is God. "Wir Deutschen are the easiest peo ple In the world to govern because we are obedient and inflammable. We are Inflammable because we are greedy 1. Dangle some one else's sau sage before our eyes and we will go any where after It." Christine quotes this biting sayinr about the German attitude toward womankind, maybe explains what German soldiers have done to Bel gian and other women: "Germans divide women into two classée; those they want to kiss, and those they want to kick, who are all those they don't want to kiss.'" Here is a picture of one of the war mobs: "The public is that shouting, per spiring mob out there watching the soldiers, and Frau Berg and her boarders are the public, and so are the soldiers themselves. The publio here are ail the people who obey, and pay, and don't know: an Immense multitude of slaves—abject, greedy and pitiful. * * I don't think I ever could have imagined a thing to pitiful to see as these respectable middle aged Berlin citizens, fathers of fami lies, careful livers on small incomes, clerks, pastors, teachers, professors, drunk and mad out there publicly on the pavement, dancing with joy be caue they think the great moment they've been taught to wait for has come and they're going to get sud denly rich." And here is a hint of what the allies are going to have to do to the Prus sians: "It is queer to think of the fear of God having to be kicked into anybody, but I believe with Prussians it's the only wray. They understand kicks. They respect brute strength exercised brutally. I can hear their roar of de rision If Christ were to come among them today with His gentle 'Little children, love one another/ " TO TAKE HTJSBAHD'S PLACE.
