Health in Army Exercises.
/HEN the physical tests for the en
trance to the army and to the aux
iliary organizations made plain
what a lot of physical slackers we are there
was quite a perceptible tremor of intention
to do something about it and now that these
high-headed, sound-winded lads are com
ing back, there is hardly anybody uncon
scious of a wish to be like them.
After all, the lads arrived at this well
I being by no secret process. They had sim
1 pie food, and they took simple exercises,
but they took them with unfailing regular
ity. In addition, they were out of doors a
good deal; but the food and exercise were
the main things. They are the basis of all
good health.
There is nothing here that anyone can
not do. If there is not a sufficient knowl
edge of food values to insure a proper diet,
one's common sense can be boosted by read
ing any of the many books and magazines
which deal clearly with such subjects.
As to the exercise, there is no better way
known to keep the body fit than by the reg
ular practice of those nninvolved move
ments used daily by all our soldiers and
sailors, known as "sitting up" exercises.
These can be learned from any lad who has
been in the service, or from any physical
director. They require no gymnasium, nor
any apparatus but*"sand" enough to stick
to it, and room to swing the arms.
The question of time need hardly be con
sidered by the very busy, for one high
authority on athletics, an instructor in phy
sical training in the naval camps, declares
that eight minutes a day spent in these sim
ple exercises will bring its reward in a
sound body and active mind.
Touring the Battle Front.
T HE Cook's tour man lias been in Eu
rope looking the western battle front
over, and he announces that it is pos.
sible to make the entire tour in one day.
When the long months during which the
tides of battle swept over this region are
considered, it seems fairly impossible that,
even under the best of traveling conditions,
the ground could be covered in so .short a
time. Nor does it seem as if it should be.
It seems, rather, as if this were holy
ground, to be approached as such; that a
deep sense of the sacrifices made to redeem
.it from the intruder should protect it from
the intrusion of tho idly curious, the hur
rying traveler, who goes merely to say that
he has been there rather than to become a
broader, more understanding person be
cause of what he has seen.
It will be at least a year, furthermore,
before the trip is feasible. The country it
self is still well-nigh impassable. Food
and hotel accommodations are uncertain.
And more than this, hearts over there are
too sore to make the wealthy, indifferent
folks in their shining motors very welcome
FERTILE SOIL FOR GERMAN INTRIGUE
Editor Capital News: The proposal looking to the In
ternationalization of the German colonics, while \t has
provoked much bitter discussion on the part of Australia,
which looked forward, perhaps justifiably, to control of ths
German possessions In the Pacific, has not yet been re
ceived In the United Slates with the suspicion to which It
Is entitled. The senate, focussing its attention on domes
tic legislation, has permitted the proposal to pass unchal
lenged with the Idea, no doubt, of considering It In Its order
when the entire program of the Paris conference is laid
before that body for approval. But for the senate to per
mit these matters to escape discussion until the United
States has by an arrogant chief executive been committed
to them Is but to add to the difficulties which must ulti
mately be met in Indorsing or rejecting the terms of the
treaty.
The approval of this proposal would align this country
very definitely against Australia, whose soldiers bled In
Flanders and were Immolated In the unfortunate campaign
of Gallipoli, and we can 111 afford to Incur the hatred of the
Australians. Moreover, final acquiescence by Great Brit
ain In this arrangement might conceivably prove to be the
motivating factor In Inducing her largest colony eventually
to rebel from British suseralnty, when we might, as
member of the proposed league of nation«, be called upon
to lend our assistance In kicking her hack Into the traces.
...
But the greatest danger to the United States, should this
proposal for internationalization of the German colonies bs
finally adopted, )les/ln the fact that It would Inject Into
our domestic politics for years to come the issue of restor
ing these colonies to Clerman control, and all the Insidious
propaganda and Intrigue of which Germany Is the acknowl
edged master would bs centered on the consummation of
this act. Germany has her propagandists In this country
today, just as she had them during the war, and she will
find In the future ambitious men responsive to her bland
ishments.
As an example of the lengths to which German Intrigue
will go In effecting colonial expansion, let us consider for
a moment a chapter from the political Ilfs of Caillaux,
charged with treason. W6 refer to tho "Agadir Incident."
Germany was at that time attempting to become a close
neighbor of Belgian Congo, just as she was of Belgium, and
that at the expense of French rights and French Interests.
Honest and peaceful methods, she well knew, could not
achieve this end. She therefore resorted to terrorism—to
bring the matter rapidly to a crisis and obtain the result
by threat or force before resistance or Intervention could
be summoned.
She needed, therefore, her own prime minister and her
own foreign minister In the French cabinet, and through
German machinations, Caillaux, the Lenlne of Francs, was
placed In the seat of power, and Caillaux choso a man of
Inferior ability but of equal readiness to betray France, as
foreign minister.
Crowding her strategic railways with locomotives un
der steam, ready at a moment's notice to carry waiting
troops to the frontier for an Invasion of France (no doubt
through Belgium, as the Liege fortifications had not yet
been built), Germany then forced the undertaking of ne
gotiations. Not an inkling did Caillaux or his foreign min
ister give to the French senate of the plan and progress
of these negotiations.
The arrangements between Caillaux and the German
empire were drafted by the German foreign office, it was
planned to lay before the senate the completed arrange
ment, and have that body pronounce for or against It while
France faced sudden Invasion In case tt was repudiated.
Just then tho "Old Tiger," Clemenceau, chairman of the
committee on foreign relations, who read Caillaux back
ward, suddenly called on Caillaux to report on the progress
and the plan of the negotiations and sprung the trap too
soon, with the result that Caillaux and his ministry beat
a hasty re'reat. Again the snarl of the Tiger had saved
Fiance. - B. T. L.

WE HAVE WITH US THIS EVENING.
A certain farmer who lives not far from Youngstown
had the habit of collecting so many old buggies and wag
ons that his yard was littered will) them most of the time.
The wife of the farmer, who has entirely different Ideas
about the way things should be conducted, resolved to make
a clean-up.
Accordingly, she assembled the ramshackle vehicles In
an open space, set fire to them and gleefully watched them
disappear.
When the husband returned from town he drove to the
back yard, looked about him, rubbed his eyes, and cried
excitedly:
"Great bubbling beeswax, Henrietta, where Is every
thing?"
"Why," replied his wife, "I just burned up a lot of old
trash."
The husband gulped, gasped, cleared his throat, and
then blurted out:
"But heavens to Betsy, Henrietta, two of them wagons
and one buggy was borrowed!"
A teacher was reading to her class and came across the
word unaware. She asked If anyone knew Its meaning
One small girl timidly raised her hand and gave the fol
lowing definition:
"Unaware is what you take off the last thing before you
put your nightie on."

NOT KNOCKING.
It never pays to wield the hammer, so I'll knock the

year has had some lithesome queen draped In expensive
lingerie Just like the ads we always see, and still I've not
the heart to slam her, or roast her show, because I always

RUSSIA
By WALT MASON
I had hoped the Russian masses would get down to
tacks In time; season after season passes, and ths
country's still a crime; day by day the same old
story, till the narrative's grown hoary—how the
butchers crazed and gory wade knee deep In blood
and slime. Doves of peace, we say, have risen, now
'that we have squelched the Hun; since old Kaiser
Bill got hls'n we believe the trouble's dons; but In
Russia blood Is flowing, there the scythe of death Is
mowing; never was so grim a showing underneath
a winter sun. We can only hope that later Russia
may be safe and sane, when the demagogue and
traitor have been rounded up and slain; when the
people get the notion that there's nothing In commo
tion and prescribe a deadly potion for old Trotsky
and his train. Blood Is dripping In a drfesle all about
that land of woe; and our snow white dove's a flszle
while this sort of thing Is so; steps of some kind
should be taken to relieve that land forsaken; how to
save the Russian bacon? I'll be Jiggered If I know.

T he Little Boy ran into ths bouse with a warm
little fistful of discouraged looking dandelions.
"Here's a be-au-tl-ful bouquet for you. Mams!"
■aid the Little Boy. "And, Mamey, I want to ask you
somefln'—somefln' secret."
"Well," Mid the Little Boy's mother, pinching
her right hand with her left very hard to keep from
rumpling the Little Boy's hair back out of bis eyes
in the way ha hates. "Well, what la the secret
.question?"
The Little Boy leaned so dose to his mother that
■he could feel a kind of soft warmth In the air. "Mams," said ths Little
"bespeaking very softly, "Mama, Is It tomorrow yet?"
"No!—I mean yes, Little Boy," said the mother, hesitating an Instant
and then answering quite decidedly. "Yes, Little Boy, it Is tomorrow
right now."
"Oh!" cried tho Little Boy. beginning to dance like some kind of a
strange, merry little toy wound up, "oh, then we can go into the real coun
try and pick real flowers with smelling to them, and watch the real grass
grow—and—and-"
"Yes, Indeed," said the Little Boy's mother, "we can do all these things,
and wt will, too/'
Sho took tho Little Boy And the Little Boy's sister and put on their
rough, heavy shoes and their good, dark coats, and she tied up a box of
sandwiches and soma cookies with raisins In them, and away they all
went to the real country to sea the real flowers with real smelling to them,
and to watch the real grass grow, and to hear the real birds up In the trees
telling each other all the real news about yesterday and today, and tomorrow
and all the time there ever Is or ever will be.

"Where 1 Am Is Spring"
It was cool In the shade and warm in ths sunshine, and It was thirsty
work walking, and there was a real well by the real roadside, and a real
woman at the door of a real farmhouse gave them a real drink and took
them out to the barnyard and let them see a real calf before It had begun
to worry about being a cow and acting respectable.
And the Little Boy stood on a high stone and watched the little yellow
chickens and plUed them because they were In today yet, when he was In
the glorious tomorrow. And he named them, one by one, and most of
them wouldn't wait' to bs named, bnt ran away, peeping louder than ever.
"Poor things!" sighed the Little Boy. "Poor little things! Now they'll
never know what to say when they want to call each other and find out
If It's tomorrow yet."
Over In the broad field the meadow lark whistled lUre a merry-hearted
little boy calling to hie beloved vagabond, the dog, who follows him by
day and by night step for step end breath for breath.
"Follow me," whistled the lark high and clear. "Follow me, for where
I am Is spring."

The Rite of Spain and the Decline of the Saracene In Europe.
W HEN we last gave thought to the
menace the power of the Saracene
presented to Europe we saw that
they had been defeated at Constanti
nople, and thus the overland route had
been closed to them. We also saw that
a branch of ths Saracens had crossed
the Mediterranean Into Spain and had
conquered practically all of the penin
sula. though the Christians still retained
their own laws and language and civili
zation in tile mountains In the north.
The advance of the Saracens In this di
rection had been checked by the con
quests of Charlemagne.
Tho period of the greatest power o?
ths Mahomedans in Spain was from 912
to 961. But even during this time the
Christian kingdoms retained their In
dependence, and then In 1031 the western
Caliphate came to an end. and the do
minion of the Saracens in Spain was
cut up Into several email states. This
gave the Christiana the opportunity to
advance, and under Alfonso the Sixth—
who had united the kingdoms of Leon
end Castile—they won almost all of
Spain.
But now the Mahomedans called upon
their fellow-believers in Africa. This
aid stopped the advance of the Chris
tians for a time. Out of It rose thrs

century the Christian k:ng of Aragon
continued to advance In eastern Spain,
and from that time the kingdom ef
Aragon began to grow In importance.
In the mean time the Christians were
also gaining the territory that the Ma
homedans had captured In the great
Islands of the Mediterranean. The
eastern Roman Empire had won back
Crete, end the Tuscan commonwealth of
Pisa during the early years of the 11th
century won back Sardinia. Then Nor

ths lands that had been held In Italy,
and founded a kingdom In Sicily.
