Count Von Brockdorff-Rant zau also has been informed, in answer to his complaint, that Germany was asked to sign the allied plan for a League of Na tions, although not among the states invited to enter it, that admission of additional member states had not been overlooked, but explicitly provided for in the second paragraph of Article one of the covenant.

(By Charles Mill. natorO Paris, May 10. Now that is in a position to accede to peace de mands rather than, to make them, com parisons are being made with what were known in Paris in October, 1914, as von BernstorfTs Ten Command ments. The German ambassador in a conversation at Newport. R. I., in September of thit year with an Amer ican diplomat who was r friend of Cleiaence&u is said to have announced the plans of Germany in regard to France. The American diplomat, whose name was pot disclosed wrote a letter to Clemenceau, who " published this com munication in L'Homms Enchaine on October 13, 1914., The letter; outlined ten separate demands a victorious Ger many would make on France, which provided for the practical destruction of tha French Republic as a political entity.' . v .;----...-...v.. ... In spite of their absurd extravagance these demands caused a stir in Paris, prevalent In France that one of Ger as tending to confirm the view always many's chief aims in the war was to weaken French influence in Europe. The von Bernstorff conversation is re called "now, in view of the fact that the former r.mbassador to the United States is apparently more influential In Germany ; than he was when the Kaiser was in power. . Von Brockdorff-Rantzau, .the Ger? man Foreign - Minister, head of the peace delegation, is a cousin of von Bernstorff. This circumstance is not without significance in French eyes. These were the von BernstorfTs de mands as they were reported to Clem enceau:. 1. The ceding of Morocco. Algeria and Tunis to Germany. 2. The annexation by Germany all that part of France for.owing a straight line from St. Valery to Lyons. This is about one fourth o fFrance with 15,000,000 inhabitants. 3. An indemnity of ' ten billion francs..- 4. The admission of goods made in Germany into France free of duty for twenty-five years.' . 5. The continuation of the Treaty of Frankfort on trade conditions. ' ; 6. The demolishing of all French fortresses. . 7. The surrender to Germany of 3,000,000 rifles, 3,000 cannon and 40,000 horses.- - 8. The granting of French patent rights ; to ' German inventors without reciprocal .action on , the part of Ger many. 9. The abandonment on the part of France of her alliance with England and Russia'. 10. That - France make an alliance with Qermany for twenty-five years. Clemenceau's American informant said that von Bernstorff had literally called these demands Germany's Ten Commandments, quoting the former envoy as follows t "Germany will beat Russia and fin ish oft England. Then traitorous Eng land will call for our aid against each other. ;. . "As for Franco, she must be reduced, and supk forever to the level of an other Portugal or Turkey, even if we have to kill 5.000,00!) Frenchmen to do it - ' ' RACE RIOTS IN CHARLESTON LATE LAST NIGHT SERIOUS Charleston, S. C May 11.

That is why there is such a sense of tender happiness in the spring air, such gentle warmth in the sunshine, such a look of good and quiet thoughts on faces, young and old it is the day sacred to Mother. . That is why every passer-by .wears his flower for Mothera white carnation for Mother who is but a beloved memory a gay pink blossom for the Mother whose living presence blesses us still. On many days we pay homage to heroism, ' patriotism, self-sacrifice, wisdom, purity, faithfulness and love. On this day let us group them'all and do honor to their dearest incar nation to Mother., Mother's Day is just what it should be, a dear, inti mate and homey festival to be celebrated in our hearts and our homes. Like Mother herself, it has nothing to do with bandr and banners and great processions and public ceremonies. Most of us "celebrate" Mother's Day in just the way she would like best in remembering and loving her, and in her memory or for her sake by doing some quiet act of kindness, for her, or for someone she loved. Isn't it a pleasant thing to think that we commemorate Mother's Day by wearing a flower, by going to church, by doing and thinking kindly things ! The very manner of our observance expresses Mother her love of beauty, her pure, quiet devotion to God and His work, her simplicity, her eternal dedication of herself . to kindly, gentle service to others. - However many millions of lips may frame the word, however many thousands of differing mental visions may rise in our hearts at the name it is always the same Mother! This woman in the calico gown, the silk dress calling, call ing to us from the cottage, the farmhouse, the city home is always Mother, with the same tender eyes, the white hair, the gentle face and worn hands tired with their labors for us always Mother with the dauntless soul, the uplifted spirit the deep love! Many forms but always the same - Mother. ".. - . And today on her. own day how like her it is Mother contrives to make the very time that we set aside to pay her honor a time that honors and blesses not her, but us! r;'K-,.:': : -: ' -V -v" We would honor her by remembering her love, and from her spirit we receive a new vision of the love we must give; we recall her unnumbered services to us, and straightway in our hearts there springs up her demand that we -serve -others as she sensed us; we thing of her infinite patience and are lifted up by the resolve to be kindly; we remember her purity, her faith, her gentle goodness ; and in our hearts the torch of unquenchable desire for good is lighted from the steady flame of her soul. For true sons and daughters there is but one way to honor Mother's' Day and that is to be more like Mother! NEWS IN BRIEF jjj FROM ALL OVER g 5 THi UNIVERSE 2 Berlin, Friday.

This week marks the end Of the second complete checking up and scor ing of eating and refreshment place3 in the city by the local health authori ties. Last week a list of the princi pal restaurants was published. It was shown then what a wonderful Im provement all had made since March 1st. when insDection work was finally gone at in thorough earnestness. "It is hardly necessary," said one ot the authorities, "to ask if there are anv dissatisfied proprietors. So plain is the scoring system that though the inspector goes into every corner and method, anyone can follow the manner by which he gives or takes away points. Everybody can be sure they have had the same treatment that all get. : : '; - , - - "In many cases the inspections have been beneficial, from the ; educative point alone.': There . have been a num ber of proprietors who state that they would gladly allow their places open to visiting school classes who might be conducted through in order to learn first hand how the world is fed on a large scale." "As was pointed out from the first, it becomes a question Of pride to con duct a clean sanitary business. The 21 cafes it will be noted represent the smaller places of business com pared to the ones scored last week. They have made all .big strides in scores due to their Improvement in methods of dish washing,- screening against flies and general cleanliness. Due to meagerness of equipment they appear to be still too far down the score list. Now that they have been shown the necessity as well as tha good business features of sanitary es- J tablishments they will continue to nail the inspectors as friends and benefac tors. . "The townspeople cannot help but notice the Improved appearance of all places they pass. It reflects cred: on the business Interests.
