Consider tke "squirrel. If he lives

City or' San Francisco for something
to eat. Nor does he sit dowa and
wait for someone from one of those
places to bring him something. He

borhood and gets the food that grows
there. That's a valuable war lesson.

weapon in his right hand, and the
token bears these words: "Smite your
enemy dead. The day of Judement
will not ask you for your reasons,"
To this native characteristic Goethe
was referring when he said: "The
Prussian is naturally cruel; civiliza
tion will intensify that cruelty and
make him a savage." Knowing. his
people through and through, the
Kaiser, called his soldiers before him
and gave them this charge: "Make

Tht Kaiser informed Ambassador
Gerard that after this war was over
he would have no nonsense from the
United States; by which he intended
to convey the impression that GER
MANIA would be written across our
country with the CG" on San Francsi-
co and the "A" on Washington City.
To succeed in this undertaking the
Kaiser has bent every energy. He
has turned his whole nation into one
military machine with which to con
quer the world.
It was in 1894 that the Kaiser and
his associates first put into the hands
of their leaders the Pan-German
scheme, with its motto, 'From Ham
burg to the Persian "Gulf." In 1911
the Pan-German Union published a
second series of maps, with military
and political plans, bringing up to
date the scheme for a German empire
beginning at Hamburg and ending , at
the Persian Gulf.
The maps and plans given out In
1894 ran the German frontier line
around Denmark, Holland, Belgium,
the iron provinces of northern France,
the German province of North Switzer
land; they make Austria-Hungary to
be an ally state of equal rank with
Prussia. But in the plan as publish
ed in 1911, the Kaiser places" German
military heads in control of the Aus
trian and. Turkish alanines, while the
southern lines of the tan-German Em
pire include all the Balkan states, the
Kaiser's sister state of Greece, with
all of Asia Minor and Persia. So
carefully was the plan wrought out,
so perfect were the details, that today
should the war close, as some appear
to wish, nine-tenths of all t.h Pn-
