to escape to their own territory, That
might be the end of the war, If the
allies have self control enough to de

could accept without too great humil
iation. But the defeat of her offen
sive in France would by no means
mean that Germany was helpless. She
could on her own natural defenses or
ganize a stubborn resistance, ana
would undoubtedly do so rather than
consent to the terms which the Lon

London, Oct. 3. The official war
press bureau today made public a let
ter which was written by a German
prisoner to his wife. The letter said
In part:
'My company started Into action

eight. Not single oPticer is left
alive. Some of our regiments, Includ

Similar other letters are said to be
in the hands of the liritish. The rca-

For the purpose of advertising, Mr.
Ham pi on had placed ten new one dol

money is money. He left a brick and
a broken window to tell the tale.
The jib was quite a neat one at that.
Around the edges of the jagged hole
are the marks where a glass cutter
had been used. One side was broken
cleanly while the others were more or
less splintered. The hole In the glass
is about the size of an ordinary water

to Mr. Hampton is $10 and one plate

Cleveland, 0., Oct. 3. The. largest
woman suffrage parade demonstration
ver held In America took place in
Cleveland today when 3000 women
and more than 200 men marched
through several miles of the down

ed the "beginning of the end" of the
campaign to gain votes for a woman

Heading the parade. was Joan of Arc

frage association, including many of
Ohio's foremost women. Homemak-
ers marched with women of the lius!
ness world. College women In cap
and gown walked shoulder to shoulder
with "servant girls" in white aprons
and caps. City women in smart tail
ored gowns mingled freely with their
plainer sisters from the farms and
One of the most prominent features
of the celebration was a large, peace
float at the very end of the parade
Another "float, which attracted atten
tion was one hearing Ohio's pioneer
suffragists drawn by fifty children, all
members of the junior auxiliary of the
state association.
At every other corner a woman
stepped from the line of march to
mount a stool or dry goods box to
speak to the assembled crowds. The
mammoth demonsl ration today was
the climax of one of the most com
plete and spirited campaigns-Ohio has
ever seen. For weeks women from
all over the country have been in
Ohio giving freely their efforts to
bring "votes for women" one step
nearer the Atlantic seaboard. Every
village and city has seen the big yel
low bannered automobiles in which the
workers travel from place to place
arousing enthusiasm for the "cause."

seen in cnarge or saivauon Army
workers at holiday time. Into this

have also played a large part in rais
