The revoultionary war was won by sheer audacity and a remarkable display of nerve against tremendous odds. The victory was no more due to our ability than to our opponents' assininity, "Our civil war look an awful toll from both sides, because neither was prepared for that irrepressible conflict It is a. reproach to us that we do not learn from our own history. "There Is not even a remote possi bility that the people of this country will ever bo called upon to wag' a war of aggression on foreign soil. but we may be called upon to defend hearths and homes against our own Invasion. "We may indulge in smug com placency over our alleged neutrality, but we cannot hide the ugly fact that our people arc contributing to the horrors of the conflict through the stream of death-dealing munition go ing from our shores to European hat tlefields. Legally we are within our rights in taking this business, but it leaves us in a weak position to in voke the Golden Rule if we should be attacked "A complication in our situation is tlie powerful and crafty neigtibor that has grown up in our west. Some day, not far distant, demands will be made upon us from that quarter which we must refus. Shall we be able to de fend our position?

"You see," went on Cleveland, "this baby hasn't any regular mouth at all and the doctors say that she might not ever be able to eat regular food, and, chief, she has fits all the time, and my wife, she does nothing but cry all the time and she's sick. So I asked the doctors to kill Uie baby, but they wouldn't because they said the police wouldn't let them. So I came to ask it you'd help me to do it all regular." At Cleveland's desolate home the city physjejan found the baby in con vulsions and the mother in hysterics. Ho instructed that both be taken to a hospital. He said it would be impos sible to operate on the infant during the convulsions.

WASHINGTON.—Col. E. M. House, who returned yesterday from Europe, is understood to have told President Wilson that he found no more pros pects for peace during his recent visit to the capitals of belligerent nations than he did on his visit last spring. The president and Col. House talked so long this morning that the presi dent was forty minutes late keeping his first engagement at the executive offices, a very unusual proceeding for him. Col. House today parried questions as to the status of the armed ship controversy with the statement that those in Washington knew more about the subject than he did. He absolutely refused to discuss any pending dip lomatic questions or to comment on the foreign situation. When Col. House left for Europe reports were persistent that he went abroad to investigate the peace situa tion, but that was emphatically denied by President Wilson and Secretary Lansing. It was understood today that Col. House expressed great admiration for the way American diplomats abroad were carrying on their work. He told the president in detail about the state of public sentiment in Germany, France and England, and is under stood to have had much to say on the feeling in Germany in support of the submarine policy.
