"I'm not heartless," said Macdonald Impatiently. "Of course I did that. I had to do it. I couldn't do less." "Nor more," she suggested. "You may have made a hard bargain with him, but you wiped that out later." "That's just what I didn't do. Don't think my conscience is troubling me. I'm not such a fool. If It had not been for you I would never have thought of it again. But you are his daughter. What I cheated him out of belongs to you and you are my friend."

During the absence of Macdonald the field agent saw less of Sheba than he had expected, and when he did see her she had an abstracted manner he did not quite understand. She kept tc her own room a good deal, except when she took long walks into the hills back of the town. Diane had a shrewd idea that the Alaskan had put his fortunt to the test, and she not only let her cousin alone herself, but fended Gordon from her adroitly.

Vincent, Brittish Attorney General,before the Kentucky National Defense Convention last week in Louisville, should arouse the patriotism of Kentuckians and Americans no less than the lrequent and .ringing appeals of President Wilson. Sir Frederick presents to the people of America a picture painted in dark and mourning colors for the homes of America before the end of the great struggle for the world's freedom and Democracy's universal triumph. For us at least, the bloody contest is just beginning. Wejhave not yet realized nor dreamed of the suffering nor bloody sacrifice that America must with courage and hope endure before Germany is conquered. The vindication of those principles to which we are now and should without compromise continue to be committed until the victory is won will call for an army of not less than seven million men with an untold ex penditure of money to carry on the campaigns of a war that, as it now appears, must go on for four or five years. A national victory will be a personal victory for every patriotic American citizen. There can be in this struggle no national victory without national sacrifice, and no personal victory without personal sacrifice on the part of every free born American and liberty loving American citizen. tenance of the Kentucky Illiteracy Commission are to be made out of the State school fund, and we do not think that it can be done without an amendment to the constitution, certainly the amount should be made commensurate with the great and splendid work of civilization that this commission is doing for Kentucky and the world. Why not abolish a few of the sinecure Commissions and Boards and substitute in lieu thereof the Illiteracy commission that civilization and culture may supplant in Kentucky her sordid blight of politics and patronage? Shall we wait for woman suffrage that our people may be free? God grant to hasten this golden day ! It was not our purpose last week to criticise any legislative effort by any set of men or faction in or outside of the legislature toward securing for Kentucky and the nation positive, absolute and ,bone dry'' prohibition. But we are unalterably opposed to any pipe line provision or evasion that makes alcohol and alcoholic liquors accessible or available to any person whomsoever thru the Doctor, Druggist, or any other person or agency. In other j words, we favor the absolute prohibition of the manufacture and sale of alcohol and alcoholic beverages and drinkables that can or could be taken into the stomach of man for any reason or cause, or under any circumstance or condition or at any time or place until the Judgment Day. This is the only democratic way in which prohibition can be made effective, and if by chance such a measure should cause the inconvenience or even the death of a few, better let them die and pass out of their misery into eternal and universal obstemiousness, than that the many should suffer.

There is much tobacco talk here and many growers have already, in their minds, sowed their beds, and set out from five to fifteen acres in plants. Milltown has been a good hog market for a number of years. We were told that Mr. G. B. Cheatham was handsomely paid for the stock he has handled in Editor News: I dropped into this beautiful little town last Thursday and was very deeply impressed with its surroundings. It is situated in a long valley and can be read-vil- y seen seen for three quarters of a'mile before you reach the main settlement. I had a talk with several of the natives and learned that where the town is now located all the territory many years before the civil war was owned almost exclusively by two men Jack Bridgewater and Charley Massie. At that time they were both slave owners and possessed quite a lot of wealth for men in those day3. All that valley was a cane break, and from this growth the town when it started was called Cane Valley. I concluded while surveying the premises that Cane Valley could be made a lively business e point if the men would bestir themselves. I was told that in population it was the second town in the county, and with proper industry, it could increase its population several hundred. I gave a gentleman with whom 1 talked some ideas that I thought would be beneficial if adopted and he agreed with me, saying that when spring opened he would endeavor to start a move for a greater Cane Valley. It is now a much larger village than some people suppose. There are three church buildings, Baptist, Methodist and Christian, all of them having fairly good membership. The people generally attend religious services which is a good omen for the town. I found J. W. Sublett and his brother and Ed Eubank in their places of business, and the trade they were receiving was fairly good for a cold, disagreeable day. The other business men of the town were industriously engaged. While moving about the. little city I learned that Mr. A. H. Judd, and Mr. Sam Banks, the two oldest citizens, and both retired merchants, were in feeble health, but able to walk about their premises. They both have many friends, and when they are called to try the realities of an unknown world, their influence for good will be missed in wide-awak- country affords is invariably spread before them.

Upon inquiry we learned that Milltown was the oldest settlement in Adair county, aside from the county seat. It took its name from a water mill that was established at this point many years before the civil war. The mill was erected, so we were told, either by a man named Townsend, the father of the late John Will Townsend, or by Chapman Dohoney, the latter at the time being one of Adair county's wealthiest men. n I found the denizen of embraced many of the best men of the county, men who are industrious and doing everything in their power to better the condition of the community.

The committee on public information, appointed by the president, and consisting of the secretary of state, secretary of war, secretary of the navy, and George Creel, official censor, has made public a mass of evidence dealing with German war practices which shows the kaiser's leaders in the field and in command of captured points to be directly re sponsible for the beastliness which has characterized the operations of the "Huns," in the present conflict. Quotations from the pamphlet follow: For many years leaders in every civ- ilized nation have been trying to make warfare less brutal. The great land- marks in this movement are the Ge- neva and Hague conventions. The for mer made rules as to the care of the sick and wounded and established tho Red Cross. At tho first mooting at Go- neva, in 1SC4, it was agreed, and until the present war it has been taken for granted, that tho wounded, and the doc- tors and nurses who cared for them, would be safe from all attacks by tho enemy. Tho Hague conventions, drawn up in 1S99 and 1907, made additional rules to soften the usages of war and especially to protect noncombat-ant- s and conquered lands. Germany took a prominent part in these meetings, and with the other nations solemnly pledged her faith to keep all the rules except one article in the Hague regulations. This was article 44. which forbade tho conqueror to force any of the conquered to give informa- tion. All the other rules and regula- tions she accepted in the most binding manner. But Germany's military leaders had no intention of keeping these solemn promises. They had been trained along different lines. Their leading generals for many years had been urg- ing a policy of frightfulness. Tn the middle of the nineteenth century Von Clausewitz was looked upon as tho greatest military authority, and tho methods which he advocated were used by the Prussian army in its successful wars of Consequently be- cause these wars had been successful, the wisdom of Von Clausewitz' methods seemed to the Prussian army to be fully proved. Policy of Frightfulness. Now, tho ossoneo of Von Clausewitz' teachings was that successful war in- volves the ruthless application of force. In tho opening chapter of his master work, "Vom Kriege" ("On War"), he says : "Violence arms itself with the inven- tions of art and science. . . . restrictions, almost impercep- tible and hardly worth mentioning, termed usages of international law, accompany it without essentially im- pairing its power. . . . Now, philan- thropic souls might easily imagine that there is a skillful method of disarm- ing or subduing an enemy without causing too much bloodshed, and that this is the true tendency of the art of war. However plausible this may ap- pear, still it is an error whicli must be destroyed; for in such dangerous things as war, the errors which pro- ceed from a spirit of ness' are precisely the worst. As the use of physical force to the utmost ex- tent by no means excludes the co- operation of the intelligence, it follows that he who uses force ruthlessly, without regard to bloodshed, must obtain a superiority, if his enemy does not so use it." in the course of a series In 1S77-7of articles upon "Military Necessity and Humanity," General von Hartmann wrote, in the same spirit as Von Clausewitz : "Tho enemy state must not be spared the want and wretchedness of war; these are particularly useful in shattering its energy and subduing its will." "Individual persons may be harshly dealt with when an example is made of them, intended to serve as a warning. . . . Whenever a national war breaks out, terrorism becomes a necessary military principle." "It is a gratuitous illusion to suppose that modern war does not demand far more brutality, far more violence, and an action far more general than was formerly the case." In 1881 Von Moltke, who had been commander in chief of the Prussian army in the Franco-Prussiawar, declared : "Perpetual peace is a dream and not even a beautiful dream. War is an element in the order of the wdrld established by God. By it the most noble virtues of man are developed, courage and renunciation, fidelity to duty and the spirit of sacrifice the soldier gives his life. Without war, the world would degenerate and lose Itself in material 1SGG-1S7- 1.

Open the way for Kultur once for all." Even the imperial councilors soom to j have been shocked at the emperor's j peech, and efforts were promptly l made to suppress the circulation of his exact words. The efforts were only partly successful. A few weeks later, ' when tho letters from the German soldiers in China were being published, in local German papers, the leading socialist newspaper, Vorwaerts, excerpted from them reports of atrocities under the title "Letters of the Huns." Many of the leaders in the reichstag felt very keenly the brutality of the emperor's 'speech. The obnoxious word "Huns" had excited almost universal condemnation. When the reichstag met, in November, the speech was openly discussed. Herr Lieber of the center (Catholic party), after quoting the "no mercy" portion of the speech, added, "There are, alas, in Germany groups enough who have regarded tho atrocities told in the letters which have been published as the dutiful response of soldiers so addressed and encouraged." The leader of the social democrats, Herr Bebel, spoke even more pointedly. Toward the end r of a address on the atrocities committed by the Gorman soldiers in China and on the speech of the emperor, he said: "If Germany wishes to be the bearer of civilization to the world, we will follow without contradiction. But the ways and means in which this world policy has been carried on thus far, in which it has been defined by the emperor . . . are not, in our opinion, the way to preserve the world position of Germany, to gain for Germany the respect of the world." The consequences of the emperor's speech Bebel aptly described: "By it the signal was given, earned in the highest authority of tho German empire, which must have most weighty consequences, not only for the troops who went to China hut also for those who stayed at home. An expedition of revenge so barbarous as this has never occurred in the last hundred years and not often in history; at least, nothing worse than this has happened in history, either done by the Huns, by the Vandals, by Genghis Khan, by Tamerlane, or even by Tilly j when he sacked Magdeburg." Atrocities in Cnina. These atrocities in China or "Letters of the Huns" continued to be published in the Vorwaerts for several years and appeared intermittently in the debates of the reichstag as late as 190G. At that time the socialist, Herr Kunert, reviewing tho procedure in a trial of which lie had been the victim in the previous summer, stated that lie had offered to prove "that German soldiers in China had engaged in wanton and brutal ravaging ; that plunder, pillage, extortion, robbery, as well as rape and sexual abuses of the worst kind, had occurred on a very large scale and that German soldiers had participated in them." He had not been given an opportunity to prove his allegations, but had been sentenced to prison for three months for assailing the honor of the army." The "whole German of this sentence was made clear by the revelations, made in the reichstag shortly afterwards, of simi lar atrocities committed by German officials and soldiers in Africa in the campaign against the Hereros. For the guidance of the officers in case the inhabitants of conquered territory should take up arms against the German army, the "German War Book" quotes with approval the letter Napoleon sent to his brother Joseph: "The security of your dominion de--' pends on how you behave in the conquered province. Burn down a dozen places which are not willing to submit themselves. Of course, not until you have first looted them; my soldiers must not be allowed to go away with their hands empty.

"Their concert is a lecture course in patriotism, 'is the way a Kansas editor put it recently. This company was not organized under its patriotic name just to fit the present conditions. The American Girls are a company which has won recognition during several seasons of Lyceum work. They are splendid, enthusiastic, accomplished girls who make everyone in the audience glad to be an American. The three young women all come from the same western city. The program is one of wide versatility and includes saxophone and banjo trio, vocal numbers, solos on a variety of instruments and character songs in costume. The saxophone trio is one of the features of the evening. The audience will be sure to enjoy this music immensely. "Their selections, teeming with wit. humor and pathos, are rendered with such a dash of spirit and warmth of heart " says a Texas editor, "that the emotions are kept constantly changing through it all. The audience goes home richer in soul a,nd body." ,'The dainty blending of voices," says the Walthill. Xebr. Times" combined with the delightful charm of the young women, made the vocal trios of the Misses Hyatt and Miss Miller a pleasing feature. The applause which followed their first number "Absence" was rewarded by the humous "Cat song." Their saxophone trios had the distinct advantage of novelty. The audience enjoyed every number thoroughly." The company is composed of Misses Grace and Virgie Hyatt and Vera Miller.
