Their rulers, their blind guides, their cunning cunning guides, their avaricious and their stupid masters, made ready the war for them and led them into it. And it was just so with the people jf Poland. And the device by which it was accomplished was exactly the same. The grasping, scheming, ruling group made appeals to the sentiment sentiment of patriotism which is in tvery normal man's heart.
