According to directions of
County Agent, I prepared a seed
patch of J acre in my orchard
last fall. I used particular care
to prepare a good seed bed and
so got an excellent stand with
this small amount of seed. I
also used some stable manure
which gave it a good start. It
covered the ground by the time
cold weather set in and was
three feet high by last of March.
I think it will be fine wiater

ing several blocks to graze hogs
and calves on this winter. .

The usual measure 13 10
pounds to the bushel but he will
give 15.
. It will be noted that this clov
er yields seed at the rate of 150(
bushels to the acre. -
Mr Frank Wilson who lives in
the same community had even
better success as he gathered 30
bushels off of one seventh of an
acre or at the rate of 210 bushels
to the acre. '
Mr. Wilson is going to use this
to sow. down liis big pastures
but he would spare a few
bushels" to any one who wants to
try them.
If you will give me the order
I will have the seed brought to
my office. m ,NiD- Guerry.

Germany's policy Is not an acciden
tal one. It has been carried out with
remarkable silngleness of purpose
from generation to generation of
Hohenzollern rule, from the time
of the Great Frederick until to
day. Germany's atrocities are not
accidental. They are a deliber

The German rulers committed them

teaching they made the German peo

We have the words of the German
rulers and German warriors and Ger

More than that we have the perform

Let's start with Frederick the
Great In presenting the evidence.
This monarch, who enrned his sou
briquet through despoiling his neigh
bors, rather than through any real
qualities of mind which he showed,
said, in a letter to his minister, Had
ziwlll: "If there Is anything to be gained
by It, we will be honest; If deception
Is necessary, let us be cheats. One
takes what one can, and one Is wrong
only when obliged to give back."
This philosophy, applied to present
conditions, meaus that Germany was
right when she took Belgium, and will
be wrong only ir she Is not able to
hold it
From Frederick the Great to Bis
marck Is a long Jump in tllfe matter
of time ; but we find the Trussian pol
icy unchanged. Speaking before the
military committee of- the Prussian
Chamber "of DepuUes In 18G2 Bis
marck said:
"Not by speeches and resolutions
of majorities are the great questions
of the time decided, but by iron and
Then, with blood and Iron, Prussia
weit out and despoiled Denmark of
territory In 1864, bead and robbed Aus
tria in 1866, and finally, In 1S70,
brought France to her knees and took
her richest provinces.
Ilere Is what the present kaiser told
his troops when, in 1900, they were
about to depart for China to put down
the boxer uprising:
"Use your weapons in such a way
that for a thousand years no Chi
nese shall dare to look upon a German
askance. Be as terrible as Attilla's
Coming on down to the present war
we find a German minister accredited
to a neutral state far across the sea-
one which one would think should be
free from the entanglements of world
polities writing home to his govern
ment in a state paper, advising the
sinking of two ships from this neutral
nation, in such a manner that no trace
be left Dead men, he believed ,teu
no tales.
It was Baron Luxburg, minister pleni
Dotentiarv to Argentina, who wrote
this amazing dispatch on May 19, 1917
"I beg that the small steamers Oran
and Guazo . . . which are nearing
Bordeaux ... be spared if possl
ble. or else sunk without a trace be
ing left" .
This telegram was intercepted in the
United States and published. It sent
a thrill of horror around the world.
Chancellor von Bethmann-Hojlweg Is
a true disciple of Frederick the
Great Bismarck and his royal master.
In a public speech on January 31, 1917,
he said:
"When the most ruthless methods
are calculated to lead ns to victory,
swift victory, they must be employed."
So they were used, and are being
used today. They Include sinking of
hundreds of neutral ships, the burning
of cities, the deliberate devastating
of the fair lands of France, the ravish
ing of women, the enslavement of
workmen and the murder of little chil
dren. -
Horrors such as these are told In de
tail in The Prussian System," by F. a
Walcott who, for a long time, was en
gaged in behalf of America in trying to
get food to the Poles whom the Ger
mans were deliberately starvlngf by
the hundreds of thousands so that they
might not cumber the land which the
Germans intended to occupy.
Knowing nil this, can the American
people talk of any peace by negotia
tion? Can they stop this war until
thla mad dog of naUons is freed from
the military rulers who teach frightfid
ness from the cradle, and will only
seize a respite now to prepare them
selves for further conquests?
