A real "cute" tie looped in cowboy fashion, computes the uniform, which will be in kliaki."

THE GREAT GERMAN { DECEPTION. For telling the truth about his mission in London, about the efforu of the British, government to prevent the ;war, and about the rejection by his own Bovemment of Sir Edward Grey's Overture^ for peace in August, ISl-t; Prince Lichnowsky, former :German ambassador to Great Britain, is in imininent'danger of being put on trial.for high treason, says the New .York Times. , Just at the moment when the state's attorneys- are considering-the evidence against him Herr von Jago-w, German foreign secretary from 1913 to 1916, ostensibly attempting to controvert the damning evidence or the Lichnowsky memorandum and pretending to expose its "inaccuracies and perver-ions," actually and pointedly corrob-rates the testimony of Lichno-wsky as to the sole vital point of the controversy, the responsibility for beginning the war. Prince Lichno-w'sky, either because he has been long enough silent under the accusation that he did not correctly inform' his government of Britain's intentions in that fateful last �week in Aug-ast, or because of remorse of conscience, or a real love for the truth of history, made plain his opittion that it "his representations and Sir Edward Grey's appeals for a conference o| the powers had been heeded in Berlin there -would have beeil' no war, His testimony sets forth. What all' the -world outside the Teotoidc alliance knows to be the fact, that Great Britain sincerely desired peace, not war, and that she strove to avert the struggle by bringing about a conference of representatives of B^gland, France, Germany And Italy to take ineaBurea for in-flnejiiblnK Austnia and Russia to keep tbeVpeace. � . ,,/ .

When he took off iceJn 1913 Ei�g!and was ready to eater into friendly agreemeBta with * 1 the tw^o opposing forces, from von ; Jagow nnd Lichnowsky, tJiat Kng-, ; land was not responsible for the war., I as hitherto had been believed in wide I circles in Germany.'' , j � I'pon what mountains of lies. Ossas j on Pellons of organized, calculated, � deliberately studied falsifications, the ; imperial government raised the banner- bearing' the legend kept always before the eyes of the German people, "England began the war." At first Russia was the culprit; she. mobilized and. forced the hand of Germany. But early in the first year of tlie conflict the tune changed. "England bogau the -war" -was the text o� every utterance, and the battle-cry of all Germany was "Gott strafe England." If an avenging God is to have a part in the matter at all,- -it can no longer be "deaied,." eVea ' in Gennany Itself, that the viais of his codsaming wrath Ehould be emptied upon the heads of; ."Uie Potsdam gang," the Hoheftzol-j lern himsejf;^ his ministers, and the brutal, bloody-minded chiefs of the inJUtary party who fled."to the Ger-^ jnan people,'-conspired to.delude and: deceive them .|ntp_.the., belief .that England, was the cause. of the w^ar, that her .Jealousy oL Germany's commercial growth prompted her to a course pf ^j^trigu^s tb^t .made war Inevitable. . i , It -was a'sorry tale', tlje proofs of its falseness -.were multittidiiious ajd instantly forthcoming, but the German pcQple believed it. "Gott strafe England" was on every lip, the "gang" of Potsdam started the cry, pulpit and press took it up, it resounded through all the empire. It was a monstrous deception, devised to,hide Germany's guilt. 'Vet for that the German people went too far, for that millllons of them have been slain or .maimed, for that their, country has been made insolvent, for that the name of Germany has been made detestable to mankind. What are the German people going to do about it, now tliat from German witnesses they have learned the truth, now ,that they have been told how their-itnasteira, their pastors, their professors, and their newspapers lied to them?
