SATURDAY MARCH 2,1918. THE DAILY COURIEK, COhiSUT.LSVILLB, PA. PACK SBVKW. SOCIALISTS SAW GERMANY'S ERROR Urged That Inhuman Deportations Be Stopped Because of Effect oh Neutrals. GERARD SUMS UP SITUATION "Germans Will Stop »t Nothing, an* the Only Thing They Ne«p«ct l Force" -- Huns' Capacity for Cruelty Told by WhUlttK. 'Aroused ly ihe indignation show* "by the whole world over ihe ruthless deportations of the people in Belgium and France, socialist deputies in the. reichstag protested against ike cvrtiinuance of the practice. Ambassador Gerard's evidence shows the extent of the horror. To the Norddentfche AllgemelDC Zfitlins nf December 2. 1916, the following protests against the deportation of Belgians to work in Germany - appeared. m;ule. respectively, - by Socialist Deputy Hnase and Deputy Dltt 3 mann* members of the reichstag: "Thousands of workmen in the occupied territory have been compelled to forced labor; we earnestly ask the government to'restore to these workmen their liberty, especially In Belgium. Its tnitli. we (the Germans) find no sympathy in neutral countries; even the pope has made a protest against - this procedure, and several neutral states have done the same. Common 'sense itself demands that we abandon this procedure vvuich moreover is In opposition to the Hniroe convention to which \ve have agreed." "In opposition to the secretary of state. I must recall that when formerly the Belgian workmen who had fled to Hollnnj returned to Belgium, Governor General von Blssing promised that these Belgian workmen would under no circumstances bo deported to In anoUmr. dispatch from Havre (Washington Post. September 24,1917) It la rtated that "the German military authorities at Bruges. Belgium, are conscripting forcibly all the boys and men.of that city between the «§es of fourteen and alxty to work IB monition factories ami ahlpyardB. The rich and poor, shopkeeper* and workmen, all are being taken! only the school teachers, doctors, and priests escaping." German Ofifeer Mvkulnd Men. ' The following "Orttr. ot- the Day" shows how the 1 town of Buy escaped ' the fate of so many Belgium and French Uwns. Drunken German soldiers war* frightened .and began. to shoot men sad bwa .houses. The commanding officer condemned this because !t was net done by his order and because two Germu soldiers were wounded. It tf vtJe»t that massacres and arson were permitted only when commanded by the officers. j 'Tart night a snooting affray took place. There is no evidence that the Inhabitants of the towns had any aijms In their houses, nor la there evidence that the people took part In the shooting; on' the contrary, It seems that the soldiers were under .the influence of alcohol, and began to shoot in a senseless fear of a hostile attack. · "The behavior of the soldiers during the night, with very few exceptions, makes a scandalous Impression. "It is highly deplorable when officers or nonconiirlsslohed officers set houses on fire without permission or order of the: commanding, or, as the case may be, the senior ojBcer, or when by their attitude they encourage the rank and file to burn and plunder. "The miserable behavior of the men caused a noncommissioned officer and a private to be seriously wounded by German bullets. "MAJOR TON BA3SEYFITZ." Report of Mlnltter Whitlock. "One Interesting result of the deportations remains to be noted, n result that once more places In relief the German capacity for blundering, al-' most as. great as the German capacity for cruelty. Until the deportation* were begun there was no Intense hatred oa the part of the lower classes, i. e.. The wnrfcingmen and the peasants. The old Germans of the 1 Lnndsturm had been quartered In Flemish homes; they and the Inmatesspoke nearly the HI* Last Years Busy .Though Peace- j ful Ones and Death Result of I Act of Self-eacriflce. ] The closing years of the life of John Bunyan were peaceful, ^nllke In that respect the years that had gone before, but they were busy''years, devoted to preaching, to the work of a pastor and teacher. · Of these closing years, Froude, In his "LIf* of Bunyan," edited by John Morley, writes, "Happy In his work, happy In the sense that his influence was dally extending-spreading over bis own country, and to the far-off settlements In America, he spent his last years in his own land of Beulah, Doubting Castle out of sight,' and the towers and minarets of Emmanuel. ~.4ind growing nearer and clearer, aa the lays went on." His end was brought about by exposure : wh"en bje was engaged In an act some language; they got along fairly well; they helped the women with the work, the poor and the humble having none of those, hatreds of patriotism that are among the privileges of the upper classes. It is jnoncelvnule that the Flemish population might have existed under German rule; It was Teutonic in' its origin and anti-French Germany. This reassuring promise has cot heen kept.''

The news dispatches .indicate tnat the deportation and forced labor of Belgians still continue. In a dispatch from Havre (New York Evening Post, September IS, 1917) it Is stated:,"The removal of the cMUon population of Belgium continues, according to advices received here. The town of Routers, immediately behind the battle . Hue In Flanders, has teen evcnted completely^ Oetend. ft being emptied gradually, and two tkovsnad persona thy, during this long nnd terrible time. and still these are nnt the events of battle heat, but the effects of a grinding heel of a race demanding the mastership of the world. Shame Makes One Forget. Forgetting Is a strange phenomenon. According to tho modern psychologists, we are most apt to forget those things that we do iiot want to remember--«*· peclally those of which w« are ashamed. In an address on criminals who are on the'border line of Insanity, dellT- ered recently before the Glnlcal Society of St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Washington, Dr. Leon Emlle Duval told of many mentally unbalanced men who in their normal state could not.remember disgraceful deedfl they had done, nnd said this was to be explained on tbo basis "that f i t is the thing of which we are-ashamed and which conflicts with the custom* of sod«ty,whfch la soonest relegated to the realm of the unconscious/' Well Rttttaraerf.

Red was a fast color and difficult to bleach, hence the red rags were useless In manufacturing writing'pa- paper. But as the color of blotting paper did not Interfere with Its usefulness, red or pink was as. good a color as any other, and thus provided a means of utilizing otherwise wasted material. Natural Mortar Beds. Who invented^ mortar? Some prehistoric person, who In all likelihood hit upon the combination by sheer luck. The mortar used by the ancient Greeks and Romans was the sanio stuff that we use. Bat nature .was !n advance of tho human discoverer by sorao millions of years. la Terus anQ Kansas, extending over vast areas, Is a geological formation known In that region as tb» ''mortar beds." It Is a stratum composed of sand, cloy and lime, which, ·originally fluid, has "set" and become rock. ' The process by wliich the sedimentary rocks of tho earth were formed Is successfully Imitated in' the sidewalk pavement of artificial stone, which la spread in n moist condition nnd allowed to dry. It Is better for the purpose than natural stone--^nado in^slnbs larger than can be quarried arid often formed with grooves so as to.expand and contract without breaking. Useful Tree. An American tree, known as the shea, or butter tree, Is beginning to attract comrawclfll attention. It sap- plies · not only nuts, but also butter that may become an article of commer- cial.importance. It Is already exported to Europe, where makers of artificial bntter find tse for It Almost two-thirds of the not U) yegr etable butter. - The tree begin* to bear when It is fifteen years'old and reaches Its prime in twenty-five years.
