Wfbster's Dictionary. ...
. .This is the kind of a brute he was
in the ninth century. That he did
not change any during the next two
hundred years, one has but to turn to
the writings of Roger Bacon, who, in
describing the Germans (Huns) of
his day, over seven, hundred years
"Hence the Saracens and pagans in
many parts of the world "are becom
ing quite impossible to convert; and'
especially beyond the sea, and in
Prussia, and the lands bordering oa
Germany (i. e.,Teutonic knights)
ruin all hopes of converting them ow
ing to the war- which they are al
ways stirring up, and because of their
lust for domination. Ther , is no
doubt that all the heathen nations be
yond Germany would long ago have
been converted but for the brutality
of theijrethren of the German house,
because the pagan race has again
and again been ready to receive the
faith in peace,, through, preaching.
But they of the German house- will
not allow it, because they want to
subjugate them and reduce them to
slavery, and by subtle persuasions
they have for many years deceived
the Roman church. This is notorious
otherwise I would nat make the
And as he was seveiu hundred
years ago so do we fimfhim on down
. the ages. . During:, the era pfJifcPP
leon uermany was tnorougmy, as it
was considered" at the time, subju
gated, and Napoleon made a treaty
of peace with Germany, whereby that
country was prohibited from ever af
terward having an army of more
than forty-two thousand soldiers.
Hut no sooner than this treaty was
signed did that nation of cheats and
liars go to work and evade the terms
of their signedtreaty by raising
forty-two thousand soldiers each year
thereby by sharp practice breaking
their treaty with France.
From that time until the present
Germany has been suspected by all
the other countries of the earth, and
her word considered of no avail by
all. She had a solemn and binding
treaty with the other nations of Eu
rope, whereby the neutrality of Bel
gium was guaranteed, but no sooner
did she declare war than this treaty
was declared a "mere scrap of paper"
and violated by Germany.
Not only with the other nations of
the world has Germany been an out
law and cut-throat, but even amongst
themselves they have been a nation
of rapists, murderers and. outlaws,
a table of crimes committed in Eng
land and Germany during the ten
years 1897-1907, by Mr. Louis Tracy
shows the following alarming and at
the same time astonishing preponder
ance of crime in Germany over Eng
land. ' .

Is it any wonder that they ravished
and denied the good women of Bel

Such is the character of the nation
with which the aHies make war for
defense. But what of peace ? How
will it be possible to make peace with
a nation with such a record behind it
for not keeping a treaty? Besides,
with whom will the allies attempt to
negotiate a treaty? Surely not with
ihe present Kaiser or any of his fam
ily. Everv member of that accursed
breed should be punished as any other
common murderer. -They have not
fven as much excuse for their mur
ders as the average man has, for in
all such cases it is but the outgrowth
of some preceeding trouble, while the
Kaiser and the entire . military ele
ment of Germany "does not even have
that much to excuse them. They en
