THE KAIBKR'R SERMON.
"Either German principles of right,
freedom, honor nad morality must be
upheld, or Anglo-Saxon principles,
with their idolatry of Mammon, must
be victorious," says the Hohenzollern
The world has had an opportunity
during the last four years to learn
the principles of right, freedom, hon
or and morality preached by the kais
— .er jtnd practiced by the Germans.
The German idea is that might
makes right, that anything is right
which is necessary to extend German
sway over the other peoples of the
earth and win special privileges for
the Germans. It has nothing In com
mon with the morality of the Chris
tian God to whom the kaiser so of
ten , and always sacrilegiously, ap
If it will help Germany to obtain
her place In the sun it is right to kill
non-combatants, to commit rape and
robbery, to blow up the ships and
factories of neutrals, to slaughter
the wounded—in fact to break any
and all of the ten commandments.
And, strange to say, the men of all
religions in Germany seem to agree
that it is right to abrogate the ten
commandments if it will obtain victo
ry for Germany. Among themselves
they still adhere to the theory of
Christian morality, and perhaps they
practice that morality one toward
thee other, but for all outside th
fold of the fatherland there is to be
neither mercy nor Justice until they
submit to the German despotism.
When Cardinal Mercier called down
the punishment of heaven
those who had massacred his priests
and people, who had stolen the treas
ures of his land and burned and rap
ed, some of his co-religionists in Ger
many cooly suggested that he
un-Chritian because he did not for
give these acts. Thus is the Chris
tian religion perverted by the adher
ents of all sects in Germany to
hold every injustice inicted
And we are quite as familiar with
And that is German right
It was that honor
which violated Germany's pledged
word to preserve the neutrality of
Belgium. It was that honor which,
through an ambassador, proposed
that the ships of a friendly nation
should be sunk without leaving a
trace. It was that honor which has
permitted Germans to break
rule of international law, to seize
sink ships which they had specifical
ly promised to protect, to bomb hos
pitals and kill nurses, to poison wells
in West Africa and to fill the world
with spies, many of them prostitutes

The Cool Summer Car
Is The Franklin
During the heat of summer the motor car is a favorite method of finding the
coolest places. Even the car's movement results in the creation of a breeze.
With the water cooled engine on these summer days the engine quickly heats the
v car to an unusual degree, with accompanying discomfort to the driver and whoever
may be on the front scat.
With the use of the Franklin Car all this annoyance and discomfort is avoided.
The Franklin driver and his company get no engine heat, but are permitted to enjoy
the cool breeze created by rapid movement.
It is one of the smaller comforts, but life after all is made up of many small
things, not the least of these being comfort.
With the Franklin, however, there are so many other points of distinctive excel*
mce that their statement is only a cataloguing of deficiencies in other makes of
The Franklin rides easily over rough roads—it uses the minimum of gas, oil,
and tires to secure a maximum of comfort, safety and satisfaction.
The Yellowstone Motor Company is having difficulty In securing even half as
many Franklins as it can easily sell. But we keep trying.
Just now we have a few.
Come in, see and ride in one—buy it and be happy

The Anglo-Saxon, said the emperor,
aimed at making the peoples of the
world work as slaves for the Anglo
Saxon ruling race. We will not at
tempt to speak for the British, but
certainly the people of Canada and
Australia would not echo the senti
ments of the kaiser. But a plainer
argument to set down his Imperial
najesty is before the whole world.
The Teutonic race already has its
«laves by the mllions in Gemany and
iustria-Huugary, in Belgium and Ser
na and even in countries such as

many is nominally at peace.
The kaiser admits that Germany
seeks to rule the world but sugar

ion that when Germany rules there
vill be freedom, Justice, honor and
•ight for all. If any other race seeks
o rule, its purpose is to make slaves
>f mankind. The argument might
lave had a chance of convincing a
few ignorant minds if the proofs
against it had not been put before
the world daily since Germany pre
cipitated the war.
When the emperor speaks of the
Anglo-Saxon regime he is, or course,
trying to include the United States
within his condemnation. He would
have it that the United States is try
ing to make slaves of subject races.
Once we shed rivers of blood so that
a nation which was committed to the
doctrine that all men are free and
equal should no longer be cursed with
human slavery. We saved Cuba, Por

LIGHTNING STUNS PEOPLE
AND KILLS PINE CATTLE
During the storm last Sunday af

aged 15, was stunned by lightning,
which struck near her house. She
was standing in the yard at the time, ;
and the shock threw her to the!
ground and rendered her unconscious!

where the lightning struck looked as
though a German shell had struck
The same afternoon John Boehme
of Geneva, was also badly stunned
During yesterday afternoon's storm
lightning killed three cows and two
yearling heifers on the Arthur Budge
ranch near Paris. The animals were
in the pasture at the time. Two oth
er cows were so badly stunned that
t is doubtful If they will recover
from the effects. The animals were
all thoroughbred Holsteins. The two
heifers and one of the cows killed
were prize winners at the Utah state
fair last fall. At that time Mr. Budge
refused $700 for the cow. He esti
mates his loss at $3,000 or more,
which is covered by insurance to the
amount of only $250.
