"Posterity" The representative of the French nation, Clcmcnccau, has just paid President Wflson a remarkable tribute. He says, "President Wilson's words sound like the voice of posterity." Here is indeed an ideal standard, "The voice of posterity." Posterity looks upon past events from a high from passion vantage point. Posterity is largcly-Jre- e and prejudice. The attitude of posterity is that which every wise man, every statesman and leader should seek to attain. What will my grandchildren think of this, and this? That is a question which can often steady our judgment and clarify our vision. WorldNews President Wilson's arrival in Franco and tho speoohes of welcome and replies aro tho loading Ionics of the week. No man over received such a reception in a foreign country. Tho speeches of Wilson aro fitting and also contain suggestions of tho moro serious purposes for which ho mado tho journey. Ho has early struck tho nist on the piano and organ wore prominent ideas which ho wishes worked out. American troops are now occupying positions on tho Mime, and in places, they havo gono boyond that river. Tho reception thoy received is better, on tho whole, than might bo expected' and at somo points, tho Germans seem desirous of making friends. Tho United Slates is now regarded by Gorrnany ns tlio best friend sho has in tho Peace Congress, and hopes sho will stand as her defender against undue severity. given by Germany President Wilson to como to Germany has practically been rofused, according to reports of tho President's comments on tho situation. Ho allowed it to be known that Germany must spend much timo in repentance beforo she can expect to receive the consideration that a visit would imply. This is plain talk, but it needs to be said. An invitation to" "Berea's Invitation" Berea has just closed a remarkable fall term. More thun fqurteen hundred students have been enrolled in her five departments. Just about one half of these students have had the inlluenza, and Uerea's care has been so goodvthat only two have died. This is an unexampled record. Moreover, the institution has enrolled two "units" of young men for government service, and given them splendid training. If the war had go fie on we should have by this time many of our Berea trained boys well on their way toward active service. And the regular school work, interrupted as it has been by influenza and war, has still been wonderfully productive so that the young people find themselves wiser and stronger as the term closes. And now for the winter: The winter term begins New Year's Day. It will be the most crowded term ever known. Scores of young men are coming back 'from the army, to resume their studies in College, Normal School and Vocational. Scores of teachers are planning to be in Berea and avail themselves of the new law which gives Berea graduates teaching certificates without examination. The new James Hall is probably the most perfect home building for girls ever erected in the south, and enables the institution to invite larger numbers than ver. It is still true, however, that many students will be too late to find shelter in Berea. Those who are planning to be here should send in their dollar deposit to Secretary Vaughn right away in order to be sure of a room. , 1 ; ( Tlio radical party in Germany is making a desperate effort to get control of tho government and put affairs in tho hands of a Council of Workingmen and Soldiers, according to tho Russian plan. Tho general program of such a government includes tho confiscation of properly and land from the wealthy part of tho population, and tho use of this in meeting tho expected indemnities and current expenses. Efforts arp being mado to get tho provisional government of Germany to the place where they can appoint delegates to tho Peaco Congress. Even tho Reichstag has been trying to meet in spito of opposition. It Ib reported that General Foch, in his dealings with tho Germans, refuses, absolutely, to rccognizo tho radical Socialists and this may havo a bene ficial effect on tho people, who cer tainly do wish a representation in tho Congress. The Great Home-Comin- g ' 4 Tlio greatest homecoming in the glorious history of tlio United States is now taking place. Tho rank and lllo of tho young manhood of Amor-i- ca which rallied to tho dofenso or our great nation is now returning homo to follow tho ordinary pur-u- iu nf nonce. Much now knowl edge has been gained, and a tastO for education and special skill has boon acquired in tho military camps of this country and abroad. Now that tho camps are breaking up and tho soldiers rotiirning homo tho things that were satisfying bo-- 1 foro they went away will not meet! their new aspirations and desires. An ordinary person with no claim to omniscience or divinely endowed nowcrs of prophecy can bd par- doned for predicting tlio future of tlio young mon who so heroically offered themselves for their coun-tr- y. They will fall Into two classes: thoso who caught tho vision of great service and whoso souls wcro thrilled with tho real significance of tho intensive preparation that they havo undergone and thoso who saw no farther than tho humdrum monotonous drill, drill, drill, and prayed for tlio speedy approach of tho timo whon they could shift all responsibility and do absolutely nothing thoy did not havo to do. Thoso of tho first class will not outer into tho old life, ns thoy onco knew it, but will tako upon thorn-solvtho duties and opportunities es J of tho new era. They will see that the period just following tho war will be a young man's period a of commerce, industry and social reform into which young blood must bo infused. They will seo that tho greatest conflict between capital and labor that our country has over witnessed will havo to bo adjusted and arbitrated, and that tho best man to ncgotiato such matters is tho young man who has felt tho heart throbs of tho world, and has received a vision of tho proper relation that should oxlst between men and finance. There are many of tho first class who aro ijot prepared to render tho service thoy desiro, and they will ho grateful for tho ndvico and assistance that older and moro experienced pcoplo aro ablo to give. Tho best advico that can bo given tho majority is that thoy enter a school which is best adapted to meot thoir particular needs and aspirations, and stick to it until thoy havo finished a dellnilo courso of studies. These young mon will unquestionably lead in every branch of our wonderful civio life.

Tho lltera-tur- o Art., that is being published on the "Spiritual Aspects of tho War" certainly has a solid foundation for tho wonderful narratives related of providential care.

When she entered Baltimore and New London she got all tho corgo she wanted, didn't she?" "Yes." "Well, If you send over your merchant marine they will get the same." For that answer he gave mo ten days In the guardhouse. He did not like to be reminded that their merchant marine had to dive under to keep away from the Limeys. I admit I was pretty flip to this officer, but who would not be when a slick German swlno officer bawled him 'tt', Most of Those Who Ran Away Were Drought. Back. XI-T- XII-Dep- le-pe- rred away were brought back, though. The Germans were so easy on those who tried to run away that I almost thought they were encouraging them. One chnp was doing his ten days In the guardhouse for the sixth time while t was there that Is, he had Just about completed his period of detention. lie claimed that the sixth time ho bad really got across the border nnd was' arrested In a little town by the Dutch authorities und turned over to the Germans. That Is against the law In most countries, but he swore It was the truth. I nm not so sure, myself. He got nwny for the seventh tlmo while I was at Dulmen and wus not returned. Ten days In the guardhouse Is not such a light punishment after all, because wnter three times a day Is all the prisoner received during that time, but It Is pretty mild compared to some of the things the Huns do. One morning I thought for sure I wns going cnfnrd. I wns Just fed up on the whole business nnd sick of doing nothing but suffer. So I strolled nlong, sticking my head Into barracks doors, sometimes trying to havo a talk, other, times trying to pick a fight. It was all one to roc : I Just wanted something to do. I found what I wanted, nil right I had quite a talk with a sentry In three-quarter- It was while I was In the guardhouse that Mr. Gerard, the American ambassador, visited the camp. He came to this camp about every six months, as a rule. Even In the German prison camps the men had somehow got Information about Mr. Gerard's efforts to Improve the terrible surroundings In which the men lived. Some of the, men nt Dulmen had been confined In various other camps and they told me that when Mr. Gerard visited these camps all that the men did for a week or so afterward was to talk about his visit nnd jrhat he hnd said to them. We knew Mr. Gerard had got the Germans to mnke conditions better In some of s in Germany und the worst the men were always glad when he came nround. They felt they hnd something better to look forwnrd to und some relief from the nwful misery. Mr. Gerard wns pnsslng through the French barracks and n man I knew there told h!m Uiere wns nn American there. The Germans did not want him to see me, but be put up nn nrgument with the commanding otllcer nnd they hell-hole- out? wnr. She shid she did not believe anything the Germnn pnpers printed. She snld she was nn Englishwoman from Liverpool nnd thnt at the outbreak of the war not being able to get out of Germany, she nnd her children had been put In prison and thnt every dny for over n week they had put her through the third degree; that her children had been separated from her and that she did not know where they were. She walked along with us for several blocks until n sentry heard her say something not very complimentary to the Germans and chased her away. When we nrrlvcd at the camp we were put Into the receiving barracks nnd kept there six days. The condition of these barracks was not such that you could describe it. The floors were actually nothing but filth. Very few of the bunks remained; the rest had been torn down for fuel, I suppose. Tho day we were transferred to the regular prison barracks four hundred Russians and Belgians were burled. Most of them hnd died from cholera, typhoid and Inoculations. We beard from the prisoners there before us that the Germans hnd come through the camps with word thnt there was an epidemic of blnck typhus and cholera and that the only thing for the men to do was to take the serum treatment to avoid catching these dlsenres. Most of the four hundred men hnd died from Ihe Inoculations. They had taken the I I uermans' word, had been Inoculated and had died within nluo hours. Which shows how foolish It la to believe a German. None of us had nny doubt but what the serum was poisonous. The second day that we were In the regular camp the Germans strung barbed wire all around our barracks. They told us we had a ense of black typhus among us. This was nothing more nor less thnn u bluff, for not one of us hud typhus, but they put up the wire, nevertheless, nnd we were not nny-thin- nt prUoner are CIIAITKH XlX-T- tm traniferred to Neuatrrlltx, but get no bet. treatment there than at pwlnemunde, ter nt Chapter XX After reveral week Neuatrelltx, I ...they areI ., I,tranaferred.1 once .- I . ., ,. ......

We were rousted out of ttiu cnrrlnges, mustered mi tlio platform, counted, then drilled through tho streets. In bjtlte of tin- - Internes, tho streets were pretty well filled with people, and they us through nil the streets they could, so t tint all the pcoplo would have n chance to see tho crazy men, tin they culled us. Most of (lie people, were women, nud us coon ns they saw us coining, they begun singing the "Watch on the lthlne" or Homo other Oermuu song, and It was funny to see windows openlug nnd fat on, sticking fruits, with night-enp- s their heads out of the windows. They und would glvo us o quick onco-oveplpo up like u boutswuln; "Schweln-hunVnterlund Wucht nm Itheln" all kinds of things and alt mixed up. So we gave them "Tlpperary" and "Pack Up Your Troubles," and showed them how to sine. Our guards bad no car for music and tried to stop us, but though they knocked severul men down, we did not stop until we bad finished tho sour. Then, after we had admitted to ench other that we wero not downhearted, we shut up. Dul-med r, d Wo would have done so, unywuy, be- cause by this tlino we were on tho outskirts of the town, and we needed nil tho breath we bad. The road we wero on was Just one lone sheet of Ice, and wo could hardly wulk more than four steps without slipping und fulling. My shoes bud wooden soles, and It was just ono bang after another, with tho Ice and myself trying to see whlclf could hit the hardest. Every tlmo we fell smash) cume a rifle over the back. I was getting pretty tired, so I said to somo of the fellows that I was going to sit down and rest, und they said they would ulso. go we dropped out unci waited until the guurds behind bad Just uboilt caught up with us, uud then we would go on. We did this severul times until they got on to us, and wo could not do It any. more. At Swlnemunde and Ncustrelltx, I must admit that tho Germans had us pretty badly buffaloed, but at Dulmen the prisoners were entirely different. Dulmen was the receiving camp for tho whole western front, nnd tho prisoners thero got to be pretty tough eggs, ns for as Fritz was concerned, before they had been in enmp many days. They thought nothing of picking n light with a sentry and giving him a good battle, even though he was armed with rifle und bayonet. We soon learned that unless his pals aro around a Germnn wilt not stand by bis nrgumcnts with his fists. In' other words, If he can outtalk you, he will beat you up, but If bo cannot, It Is a case of "Hero comes Heinle going back." Tho Ilusslnn prisoners nt Dulmen were certainly a miserable looking bunch. They spent most of their time wandering around tho Ilusslnn barracks, bunting for rotten potato peelings nnd other garbage, which they would eat. When they saw Fritz throw out his swill, they would dlvo right through tho barbed wlro one after another, and their bands nnd fnco and clothes wero always torn from It. It was unhealthy to stand between the Hussions nnd their garb-ag- o prey they wero so speedy that nothing stopped them. Ono morning, Just after bnrley-cof-fe- e time, I came out of the barracks and saw nn Australian arguing with the sentry. I was not only curious, but anxious to bo n good citizen, ns they say, so I went up und slung nn car at them. Tho Australian hud asked Fritz what had been done with tho flag that tho Huns wero going to fly from tho Klffel tower In Tarts. That was too deep for Fritz, so tho Australian answered It himself. "Don't you know, Fritz? Well, wo have no blankets, you know." Still tho sentry did not get It. So the Australian carefully explained to mo so that Fritz could hear that tho Germans had no blankets and wero using tho flag to wrap their cold feet In. front of a barracks. It must have s lasted of nn hour. Ho did not know what I was calling him, and I did not know what be was calling me. I could have handled him all right, but another sentry enmo up on my blind side nnd grabbed me and the talk wus over. They dragged me to the commander of the camp and he Instructed them to give me n batb. So they took me to the bathhouse, where I was stripped nnd lashed. All the tlmo tbey wero whipping mo I was thinking what a Joke It was on me, because I had been looking for excitement nnd bad got more than I wanted, ho I laughed and the Huns thought I was crazy sure. I was dumped Into n vat of hot water and at the miiuo time my clothes were given a boiling, which was good for them. Then It was forced Into my wet s. clothes and marched back to tho This bath nnd tho stroll through the snow in wet clothes Just nbout did for me. Nowadays, when I sit In n draft for a second nnd catch cold, I wonder that I am still alive to catch It. Having gone through Dlx-m- u de and tho Dardanelles and the sinking of the Georglc nnd four German prison camps and a few other things I hhnll probably trip over u holo In n church carpet nnd break my neck. That would be my luck. There were all the diseases you can think of In this camp, Including blnck cholera nnd typhus und somebody was nlways dying. Wo hud to muke colllns from nuy wood wo could flud. So It was not long beforo we wero using the dividing boards from our bunks, pieces of flooring nnd, In fact, the walls of tho barracks. Tho olllcers were quartered In corrugated Iron barracks, so they had to borrow wood from us for their colllns. We would make the box nnd put tho body In It, give It as much service ns wo could, In tho way of prayers and hymns, and put It away In n holo near tho barracks. There was so much of It that a single death bar-ruck- This started, u fight, of course the German Idea of a light, that Is. Tho sentry, being a very bravo man for a German, blew his whistle very loudly, and sentries enmo from all directions. So wo beat It to tho Australian's barracks, and there I found the second American ln.JJjo.catnp.Ho wafUL-hnr- pusscd unnoticed. Ono morning the German sentries came to our barracks they never came singly and told us that an officer wns going to review 'the prisoners and ordered us to muster up, which wo did. I was the lust man out of tho barracks and on account of my wounds I wus slower thnn tho rest. You understand I had had no medical treatment except crepe-pape- r bandages and water; my wounds bad been opened by swimming from tho Georglc finally said he could Intervlpw me. I never wns so glad to see anyone us I wns to see him. The picture Is still with me of blm coming In the door. We talked for about nn hour and a hnlf, I guess, nnd then he got up to go nnd he snld I would lienr from hlra In nbout three weeks. Just think what good news that was to me I They let me out of the guardhouse and I celebrated by doing all the damage to German sentries thnt I could do. The men In the camps went wild when they learned thnt Ambassador Gerard wns there, for they said ho wus the only man in Germany they could tell their troubles to. The renson was thnt he was strong for the men, no mutter whnt nationality, and put his heart Into the work. I nm one of those who cannot sny enough good things nbout him. Like many others. If It hud not been for Mr. Gerard I would be kaput hy now. A few days after this I was slow agnln us we wero marching to the bread bouse nnd the guard at the door tripped me. When I fell I hurt my wounds, which mnde me hot Now I had decided, on thhiklng It over, that the best thing to do was to be good, since I was expecting to be released, nnd I thought It would be tough luck to be killed Just before I wus to be released. But I had been In the American navy and nny gnrby of the U. S. A. would have done whnt I did. It must be the training we get. for when n dirty trick Is pulled off on us we get very nervous nround the hands nnd ure not always able to control them. So I went for the sentry nnd, walloped him in the Jaw. Then I received his bayonet through tho fleshy pjirt of the forearm. Mo.t bayonet wounds that we got were In the arm. But those nnns were In front of our faces nt the time. The sentries did not aim for our arms, you can bet on thnt. A wo'ind of the kind I got would be nothing more than a white streak If properly attended to, hut I received absolutely no attention for It and It wns u long tlmo In healing. At that, I wus lucky; another bnyonet stroke Just graved my stomach. I hnd been at Dulmen for three weeks when we were transferred to Brandenburg, Havel, which Is known of Germany" to tho its "the prisoners. It certnlnly Is not too strong n name for It, either. On tho wny we changed trains ut Osiiabruek und from tho station platform I saw German soldiers open up with machine guns on tho women und children who wero rioting for food. hell-hole allowed to go out One dny when I was loafing around g our barracks door nnd not hnvlng particularly Important to do, I packed a nice hard snowball and landed It neatly behind the ear of a little sentry not fnr nway. When he looked around he did not blow his whistle but began hunting for the thrower. This wns strange In n Germnn sentry nnd I thought he must be pretty good stuff. When ho looked around, however, all he saw was a man staggering around as If he were drunk. The man was tho ono who hnd done the throwing, all right but the sentry could not be sure of It, for 6urely no mnn would stay out In the open and Invite accidents like thnt. But still, who hnd done It? So I just kept staggering nround. and the sentry came up to me and looked me over pretty hnrd. Then I thought for the first time that things might go hard on me. but I figured that If I quit the play acting it would bo nil over. So I staggered right up to the sentry nnd looked ut him drunk-enly, expecting every moment to get one from the bayonet. 1 But he wns so surprised that all he could do was stare. So I stared back, pretending that I saw two of him, and otherwise nctlng foolish. Then I guess' he realized for the first time that the chances of nnybody being drunk In that camp were small nt least for the prisoners. He wns rubbing his enr all the time, hut finally the thought seeped through the Ivory nnd ho began to laugh. I laughed, too, and the first thing you know he hnd me doing It again thnt is, the lmltntlon. One snowball wns enough, I figured. I used to talk to him quite often after that. We hud no particular love for each other, but he was gamer than the other sentries, and he did not call mo schwclnhuud every time he saw me. so we gdt on very well together. His name must bnve been Schwartz, I gue. but It sounded like "Swntts" to me, so Swatts he was, nnd I wns "Chink" to him, ns everybody else called me thnt. One day he nsked me if I could speak French, nnd I said yes. Italian ; yes. Russian ; yes. No matter what langunge he might have mentioned I would bnve said yes, because I could smell something In the wind, and I was curious. Then he told me that If I went to the hospital and worked there, I might get better meals nnd would not have to go so far for them, nnd that my knowing all the languages I said I did would help me a great wnys toward getting the Job. Evidently he hnd been told to get a man for tho place, because he appointed me to It then nnd there. Ha put me to work right away. We went over to one of the barracks, where a case of sickness hnd been reported, and found that the Invalid wns a big Bnrbadnes negro named Jim, a fireman from the Voltaire. At one time Jim must have weighed 250 pounds, but by this time he wns about two pounds lighter thnn u straw hat, but still black und full of pep. Light as he was, I was no "white hope," and It was all I could do to carry him to tho hospital. Swatts kept right along behind me, nnd every time I would stop to rest he would poke me with a broom the only broom I saw In GeThen I thought It was a frame-unnd that he was getting even with me, but I was In for It then, and the best I could do was to go through with It But I was nil .In when we reached the hospital. The first thing I saw when we got in the door was another negro, also from Barbadocs, and as tall and thin as Jim had once been short and fat This black boy and I made a great team, but I never knew what his name was. I always called Mm Kate, because night and day be waa whistling the old song, "Kate, Kate, Meet Me at the Garden gate," or word to that effect. I have waked up many a night and heard that whistle Just about at the same place ns when I had fallen asleep.

To give you nn Idea of my Impression of that wonderful man, I must describe to you my conception of him beforo I had actually scon him. I was then a boy of ten years of ago with very little notion of what llio powerful nation our deliverer from tho north was. In thoso days of constant war nnd devastating epidemics, very few Americans drifted Into our littlo Island of Cuba.

Now wo youngsters listened to Ihe wonderful tales told of (he Yonks by How we liunpercd to see him, a strong powerful ginnt mounted on his strong powerful horse!

And talk about the guns he had brought over to our shores, why, we could hear the tremendous noise they made as ho attacked San Juan, even though wo were 40 miles away. "Gee," some one would remark, "it would bo great to see that army of giants storming tho strong' 'ftierlc' of San Juan." "Yes," somo one else would say, "but it must bo misery to see them advancing toward you."

What a contrast A large, heavy man on n tiny caballo I For awhile there was a great deal of excitement-- - in that group of Cuban patriots. Just to know that a Yank hnd come, there was enough to revolulloni7o our camp. Even the guards left their posts Just to get a real look nn that wonderful man. Of course (here was no one around who rotild undersland his lingo and he himself hnd not been In Cuba Ifdig enough to speak ours. So thero we were.

Once Inside, I noticed that ho was rather uncomfortable, for his head wns now and then receiving some rather annoying bumps from the colling of thai humble palace. Ho sat down nnd we could sec that he yawned repeatedly. With us, yawning Is a sure sign of hunger; so the officer ordered that a good lunch be brot to him. To make a long slory short, I must say that after our royal guest had partaken of the fenit prepared for him, we found out that ho had lost his wav from his regiment and I hat ho had wandered fn tho woods for four or five days. Somewhere a boy found him and it was this boy whodiad led him to our camp. T must cite that on tho wny they passed near a Spanish fort where ilhe piard cried out "All ouein va 1" The Cuban chap tried to make his companion realizo Hint that was a Spanish stronghold.
