All books and materials are furnished
to the boys by the state and county
with the understanding that they eon
duct themselves properly and do their
utmost to get a mechanical education.
In marking the report cards, great
stress Is laid on "effort," and a boy
low in that, is not well thought of
by the faculty and others in authority.
This class of schools In of vast im
portance to the community and state
In general, for they are turning out
much needed educated and profes
sionally trained mechanics.
The faculty of the day school at No.

ed. The girls promptly almost unan
imously voted for a masquerade party
and the boya as unanimously against
the proposition. Finally a bargain
was struck and the girls consented to
abide by the boys wishes; hence cos
tumes were done away with.

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/ "
