LIBERALIZED GERMANY.
DURING die Kfetiine of ie men nlo at present control
affairs of state and hminr n there has not been
any real drmand for self government in Germany, and it
may be doubted that die German people actually are any
better prepared for such responsibilities than were the Russians.
Yet it is almost certain that self government will be
thrust upon them. It wiQ come at a time too when die
commercial arrangements which have existed for centimes
will be in almost hopeless confusion through die breaking
of the political and economic ties which have bound die
^people of Central Europe together. For a tune the
principle of self government is going to have a hard time
" ? - - - e * _ _1_

get together and perhaps some grave doubts
open die part -of those who are sincere believers in
the uplifting force of genuinely liberal government.
But no one really peed to despair even if things do go
very badly after the Reichstag essays die role of a parliament
after all these^ years of bong merely a rubber
stamp. Back in die days of '48 there-was a real liberal
movement in Germany and die country then had men who
would have been equal to die task of supplying a government
as good as any Europe bad at the time. Some of
1 these men after the failure of their movement came to the
United States and played great parts in our Civil war and
during the starring days that followed it.
There must be some of this strain of high spirited and
forward looking men in Germany even today, and if there
are they ought to come forward and do what they can to
start die Germany with die basic alteration of its political
leadership of which die new chancellor talks on die right
road in the right fashion. To attempt parliamentary government
with Prussianized statesmen such as have been
managing public affairs in die empire will be nothing less
than laying die foundations for a new disaster five or. ten
years hence' just when die people of die country are beginning
to recover from die worst effects of die war.
o
Marshal Foch and the armies in France are not wasting
any time patching the progress of the German peace
move and American citizens cannot afford to be less
alive to the duty of the honr. On with the loan drive!
o
^ Every one knows what the American reply to the
firman note is going to be, but because he is dealing
with a government which has never hesitated to stoop
to deception and downright lying,/President Wilson is
compelled to go through certain fixed foVms in order
that what he says may not be nsed to play the game
of the Prussians in Germany. In the mean time the
people of this country must be patient and confident
tbat the right thing is going to be done.

Sir Eric Geddes. first lord of the British navy, who Is
now in this country, gave out a statement at Washing-!
ton yesterday m wmcn ne expressed warm aammuDu
for the work of the American navy. Inasmuch as the
head of the British naval establishment spent a number
of "years is this country when he was a youth and
therefore understands and admires the United States,
what he said yesterday carries more weight than a conventional
statement by an official visitor, but even without
that factor Sir Eric's remarks would have attracted
more than the usual amount of attention because of his
warm praise for the success of our effort to create a
large body Of trained seamen out of landsmen. "Had
it not been effectively done," he declared, "one would
have thought it impossible." Right there lies one of
the big lessons of this great war. The German military
experts knew it could not be done. They had proved
it in many ways perfectly satisfactory to their Prussianized
minds. And then it was done without the
slightest effort. The obyious lesson is that this great
republic ?s above the logic of the war colleges. It can j
do anything it wants to do and with a speed that Europe |
cannot understand.
o
Keep your eye on that army which yesterday took
Berry-au-Bac. It is getting into a position which will
compel the Germans either to fight a decisive battle
or Indulge in a mighty foot race.
o
Bulgaria to get out of the war was compelled to demobilize
her army and turn over all its arms, munitions
and war materials to the Entente Allies. That will!
h* fftr nMrp wWfh will even
tually be Imposed upon Germany. A Germany without
either an army or the equipment for one conld he depended
upon to be good for a -while.

with her." might hare come to my Ilpa
but it did not. Cor I knew wen that
this acquaintance of mine bothered,
more with her servants * ? ?? she did
with her I once* talked to her
.on the subject and this is what she
said:
"People who do honse^odt should
hare special thought and care; tor
this occupation is the least understood
of any work in the world. Most people
feel that their servants are beneath
notice, and that anything at all
la good enough tor them. The beet
food Is placed on the table, the bad
ends reserved tor the magi. Often
nothing remains after a meal but
scraps, and unappetizing ones at that.
I know many people who refuse any
sort of a room where a maid may
have company. When my meals are
prepared nicely I always see that the
best of everything Is set aside hot for
the girl, for she has given that meal
the attention which made it especially
good.
"I plan good times tor my servants
and In only one way do I place them
on a status different from mine?I do
not Invite them to eat or visit with
me. This would bring neither pleasure
or happiness to either of us.
Other than that. I plan for them, chat

times of trouble or heartache; and in
every way possib1? attempt to show
them that I do not feel superior in any
way. For why should I? Our tastes
may be different, oar roads may lead
in opposite directions, hut we are both
human and both living toward a same
end. I have yet to find the girl or
woman desiring to do housework as a
profession, who if she was honest and
painstaking about her work, did not
deserve all the courtesy and consideration
that it was possible to give her
for so doing."
Why do we love dogs? Who does?
Do you? I do?and I will tell you
why. In the first place a dog haw absolutely
no conceit and I dislike conceited
beings. And how a dog. can
love you! No human on earth can
equal it. Don't be horrified at such
a thought, for when you stop to- think
about it. you will agree. A dog will
follow you to the ends' of the earth
and no matter what yon do. how many
the hardships or what manner of living
Is yonrs; a dog will remain satisfied
and content. Is there not-many a
dissatisfied husband, wife or child!
Does not human love depend a great
deal on circumstances or condition?
Isn't married love a matter of give
j and take? Isn't all loving in fact, a
i matter of putting so much in and getting
just that much out? How long
i does a man remain in love with a
| woman who despises him? Will a
woman dins forever to an unremitted
j love? Well, a dog will! Once keep
| a dog in your house for a week or two
?perhaps ont of mere humanity for
that which has been forsaken?and
never again will yon lose that dog,
unless .through accident or theft.
Ton haven't forgotten the dog who
grieved himself to death over his master's
death. Nor the dog who followed
his master out into no-man's land,
under shot and shell, never fearing,
only happy when dose at night near
his beloved's body. One night his
master lay wounded in a shell hole
and this small dog lay close beside
him, now and then wagging his short
tail, but not stirring?only licking his
master's face which was very cold.
Soon a German search party earner ont
and jnst about the time it came within
sight of the shell hole, the wounded
master came to consciousness.
Only just in time; for the small dog
felt his small heart begin to burst
with joy at his master's faint pat on
the top of his head and about his silky
ears . And without realizing at all

just as loudly as possible, being the
only way he had of expressing his intense
fellngs. To stop that tell-tale
bark; for the wounded man saw the
