Von Bernstorff, tlie German Ambas- sador to the United States, returned to his post today on the steamer Noor- gave out one of the most authoritative interviews yet express- ed here on Germany's attitude toward the War. Germany was bound to win in the end, he. said.- She ivas fighting be- cause Her cause was just. He predict- ed that Americans would come to re- gard the conflict in this light. Italy, lie believed, w.oiVid not permit herself to take sides against Germany. "M'y. .wife is with the Red Cross at said the-Ambassador, my Eon is 'with the Etoiperor's Guards. All my secretaries have gone to the front, and I regret that I was not able to sec active service myself. "From the Emperor to the lowest unskilled workman in the fatherland, Germany Is united to defend herself against the unwarranted attack of jealous'powers. The German people will a finish, and will be vic- torious in the end, "At the outbreak the lie continued, "the English cut the cable purpose of preventing the truth from to this neutral country for the coming he're. There was no-excuse for that, except the desire to deceive tho people of the .United States as. to the true conditions of the 'war. But I bo- lieve Americans will prove themselves fair enough toVweigh carefully all the news that coines from English ami French sources. V "The -calling, of-the. Japanese into an European quarrel shows one thin above all else. It is that England does not feel very safe. The Japanese will doubtless take Kaio Chati. Sheer weight of numbers assures that; hut by the end of the war Japan will have the supremacy of the thins she has striven for during many years, Japan !took advantage oC the situation to strike this .blow for the sole purpose of acquiring this suprem- acy. "When the true story of the assault OIL Liege is told, Americans "will have a far different opinion" than that gain- ed from the colored accounts from Bel- gian, French and English, sources. As j a matter of fact, the troops "under Von I Emmich which went to the assault of- this strongly fortified position mini bered only between five and six thous- and'lttfaiitry'aiid cavalry, Tho tailing of Liege was one of the greatest mili- tary feats In modern times. was expected to take weeks, was acc'om- pllshcd In days by. two .brigades. Von Bnimlch was allghtly 'wounded in the leg during the attack, but did not re- linquish command." The Ambassador denied reports that tho German Crown Prince had been wounded by an assassin in Berlin. Moreover, lie added that the Crown Princo had never been wounded be- fore Liege, for the simple reason that he was not at Liege, but In command of troops at the fortress of Mcjtz. "The last German victory 1 heard of before leaving said the Am. bassador, "was one at Metz, by the army under the Crown Prince." Of the reported Russian invasion .of east Prussia, Count Von Bernstorff said: "The reports of the penetration by a Russian force are probably true. That part of the German frontier is not heavily fortified. But tho Russians I'.'l never cross the Vistula." Fifteen corps of the Austrian army, each comprising men, are now on the Russian frontier of Austria, Count Von Bernstorff said. In Germany? besides the last line of reservists, men, upon whom the government had no claim for mili- tary service, had volunteered and be- come enrolled in an army of home de- fence "Germany has been attacked, and, therefore, has no responsibility for the Count Von Bernstorff said. "To the last man in, the Empire we will defend our country. This war has no other object but tho destruction of tho German and the Austrian empires, and we believe.we will be able to prove to all the world that this can- not be achieved."

Discolored or Spotty Skin Easily Peeled Off The freckling, discoloring or rough- ening lo which most skins are subject at this season, may readily he gotten rid of. Mercolized wax, spread light- ly over the face before retiring and removed in the morning with soap and water, completely peels off tbe disflgured skin. Get an'ounce of. the wax at any druggist's. There's no more effective way of banishing, tali! freckles or other cutaneous defects. Little skin particles come off each day, so the process itself doesn't even temporarily mar the complexion, and one soon acquires a brand new, spot- less, girlishly beautiful face. Wrinkles caused by weather, worry or illness, are best treated by a simr pie solution of powdered saxolite, 1 dissolved in pt. witch hazel. Bathing the face in this produces a truly marvelous transformation. oi tlmn'.-s lo Mr. Redshaw, and'the! side, will commence at 8 o'clock, con- guests dispersed after the singing of vocal and instrumental sol- gi tlu NatLoual Anthem.
