BOCHES ARE DESPONDENT Want The War lo End, No Matter How, is the Feeling. MORALE IS DECIDEDLY LOW One Soldier Writes That He Is Treated Worse Than a German Dachshund. (ttv The Associated Press.) With the American army on the Lorraine front, Wednesday, Sept. 18. —Fear lest the Americans would advance and Overwhelm them, bitter complaint about the food and general despondency at the prospects of the war are the keynotes of letters written home by German soldiers and found on their persons when they were captured. A certain American division which took more I ban its quota of prisoners, litis made an exhaustive examination ave in Your Home a KITCHEN CABINET The same as being used by the Kansas State Food Demonstrators in the Agricultural Building at the State Fair.

Looks Bad for Germany. "It looks very had for dear Ocr many," writes one soldier to his wife. "Who knows whether the Americans will break through? This morning: we again were oh Hie alHH Mil thoujtlit ihe./jncrlvuna were Koine lo. attack nut nothing has happened as yet.""' •.•„,''•-"•• "Wo fey teUpw's cannot hold tip tills BtipeW0r,.'aJlght and must all BO helplessly * l flftto erfptivrty,'' says another, "and of course most of the prisoners are murdered, but then \vo hare to be. satisfied with our fate whatever -hnilpetts." Another Gcrniah, however, evidently did not rear tuurder, which obviously had "been proclaimed as the bit.of Qertmih'soldiers falling into American hands, for ho had written: -'.Fearful of .Results "According to all appearances tve are approaching turbulent days. We constantly are on the alert and are afraid the Americans are going to nt- tnck. They are said to have assembled an enormous number ot tanks aid iroops, In thai case we or» lost, for everything in our front lino is mixed up. 1 am firmly convinced that 1 could not bo Worse oft over there." Another soldier wrote that he felt worse than a dog. He declares that even dogs have kennels to sleep in while he must-He in the open air in the rain and mud. "What" he.a*ks, "have we done that the wholo world has designs on our lives? ir 'the'Americans attack we will be In Metr. (by retreating) In two days. "The men are so embittered that they .have no interest In anything and they only want the war to end, no matter how. We are only slaves or the government." WAR DIET IN fiEHMM HAS AIDED IN THE HEALTH Even More Than Marienbad Cure, Russian Baths or Courses of Exercises Could. Amsterdam.— (Correspondence of I Tin; Associated Press)—War diet in 1 Germany has accomplished a greater reduction of the corpulency of the [ average German than all the Marien­ bad cures, Russian baths and- drastic courses ot exercise. Obseity, writes Professor Albu, In | the Berlin ..Lokalauzeiger, has disap peared to an amiu ng degree, especially in the urban centers. The disappearance of excessive flesh has been more thorough than any medical treatment could have effected, say the professor. • The war diet, he asserts, has been an. education and a cure for many who had given up all hope. It has.up­ set medical prognostications that were once regarded as incontrovertl Me. • ,..... ., "I have, Urfpwn people," says 'Pro feesor Albu, "whd In tvo years time dropped 90 and 100 pounds so that l heir friends scarcely knew them They could almost cut up an old suit and make two new orles out of the material, without having to bother about a clothes card." The writer then repeats the now., trite remark that "we a|l eat too much," and ho adds that most corpulent persons involuntarily reduced their girth without ajiy injury to their health whatever. He emphasizes the fact that this attenuation Is not due to undernourishment alone. A very great deal is due, he says, to unaccustomed bodily exertion and severe mental strain. Sorrow and vexation, the thousand-and-one domestic worries and troubles caused by the war tend to prevent the formation of flesh. People at home are generally more prone to giving away to mental worry than the men in the trenches. Hereditary obesity, he adds, has in no way been cured by the reduced war diet. A Distinct Improvement. Professor Albu says he has found a | distinct improvement in. the state of health of diabetics, who can now eat with impunity bread, potatoes and I other foodstuffs that were formerly taboo to them, Sufferers from gout have also bon| erltted by the reduction in the meat diet and by the enforced abstinence I from alcoholic liquors, niieumatisra, especially of the muscles, has also be- I come rarer. Indigestion has, In Professor Albu's opinion, certainly improved On the smaller bill of fare, which has had a beneficial effect on the activities ot the digestive tract. All sorLs of slight nervouB aliments, | especially among women, havo disappeared because less ateution Is being paid lo them in these strenuous limes. Of great scientific and practical value Js the discovery .ft&f, among the soldiers at tho front sundry nervous affections of the heart, stomach and Intestines have often completely vanished. The professor ascribes this | tto a strictly regular life In tho open ajr. In the field as well as at home, espnolglly among women, flagging nerves hare received a marvelous brace-up.

Amsterdam, Wednesday, Sept. 18.— Konstantin Fehrenback, -president of] the German reiehBtag, sees no reason; to expect a ministerial crisis In Ger- mnny, according to an Intervief with him printed in tho Lokal Anzeiser of Berlin. Differences of opinion regarding: peace almB no longer exist between authoritative political and military circles, he 1 B quoted as Baying and hence there is no ground for objec-j tion to Von Hertling retaining the chancellorship. "No one nood doubt that tho chancellor Is determined to bring about a peace by understanding," he says, "it will however be necessary for the government lo make a determined stand against tho Pan-Germans." <;> ® <s> <$• <i> * 4- •<$> * i- <?• <«» * ' • * * POLICE COURTS. <>> •v <!• <£. 4, <?, <J> <$<> 4> ^ sS> Hobert I'atriek, arrested oD^gambl- Ing charge, gavi? bond o! ?1".,3 trial this nrternoon at •! o'clock.
