six-er seven oents the pound on

There would be a prorata dis

would be a provision that no

except that tendered by the actual

Germany Beady to Sell tier Boots
. for Soccef
Berlin, Aug. 22 The depar
ture of Emperor William "in the
direction of Mayence" (that it as
muoh as the press was permitted
to know or report about it)
be said to mark the begining of
this great European war, so far
as Germany is concerned.
As in 1870, the more impor
tant of the Emperor's advisers
went to the front with him. The
party included Chancellor von
Bethmann- Hollwegg, Secretary
of State von Jagow, War Minister
von Falkenhayn and other high
governmental and army officials.
The plan of campaign is that
thought ont many years ago and
never since departed from, to
bend all energies at the very out
set to the smashing of Germany's
western neighbor. Russia is to
be left to Austria until France
shall have been disposed of.
No one can .come in daily con
tact with the officers of the gener
al staff without being impressed
with their confidence in an event
ual and absoluteviotory.
That the cost 'will be high is
not for a moment doubted, but
the men in charge of operations
are determined ttr make any sac
rifice, no malterbow appalling.'
The people aie- tinclined to un
derate the size of the task before
the German arafia. T, hey are
however, ready topay the cost ot
