At least that Is the attitude apparently adopted by people of tho middle'states.

They didn't know there would be any preliminaries, and thought all they had to do was to, walk out on tho farm and start in to pile up a fortune. They finally were piloted round to the board of trade rooms where Pres. Maruooh gave the man the sound advice to hang on to his 12,000 for a tlm� and get a job on a fa>m for a season. RECORD OP YOUNG FRENCH FLIER Sir Walter Raleigh, the well known Oxford scholar, recently published a book with tho attractive title, "The Soul ot England," and in it ho included a, little story wliicli has just heen used by .Air. H. A. L. Fisher, British Minister ot Education, to sho'w that we arc fighting todelond a great civilization: "A month before war broke out there was a German .student in O.ttord who attended a picture palace. It was crowded with youag Englishmen, members ot tho University. Suddenly tho Kaiser appeared on the film, and a young Englishman who was sitting behind ihe German made an insulting observation, whereirpon the young German turned round and boxed the Englishman's ears. Upon that the whole theatre, burst out into applause. The young Englishmen felt that this young German had been unfairly treated, that his Kaiser had'been abuaed in his presence in rather an ungentlemanly manner. A Oerman came to a friend of ner. The German came td � a friend of mine and said: 'You are a wonderful people.* He told the story, and said: 'Such chivalry as that would have been quite Incomphenslble In my country.' Weil, that Is really our civlllKatlon. That little story rives you the whole of our civilization.' That chivalry is quite apparent in the private soldier and in the officer. It is apparent through the �whole ot English society, and I feel that so long as that, spirit remains among us we can hold our heads high among the nations oC the earth." In striking contrast to this is a dramatic incident told by a sergeant ot some recent fighting which brings out strongly the difference between the Briton and the German: "I was lying,wounded In a shallow trench, when I saw a German approach an English lad'who was lying on the parapet, hadly''hlt on the leg. He was unable to move, but the Oerman dc llbcrately baybnetted him through-the body as ho lay - a dastardly act. At that moment 1 noticed our young sergeant-major, who was standing some ya^ds away frani-ithe two. I. shall never torgM-bi.s expression; he was convulsed with horror and loathing. He did not attempt to shoot or stab the enemy, hut In a burst ot ungovernable rage disdainfully dropped his rifle and leapt at the Hun-sprang at him like a bulldog. Before the toeman had time to realize what h�d happened, the young Englishman had him by the throat and literally choked the life out of him and thon flung tho body away. In my mind's eye even ngw I can see the dead German lying beside his poor victim, and in all my 20 months at the front-never did I witness an incident BO terrible, sn dramatic, and. yet so splendid." ^. One ot the latest (would that it could be considered the last) ot the tunda pon of defense, as is shown by the story of a captain of a Krillsh trawler which used a coal shovel with good effect against a German submarine. Tho -trawler, according to tho utory told by one of tho crew, was In the North Sea In a Btift breeze when the skipper saw a periscope crawl tlirougli the breaking surface of the sea n hundred yards away. There was no gun and the trawler's best Kpeed whs lesS than eight knot;;. "It was a situation to dismay most men," said the sailor, "Our skipper, however, has a fighting spirit. A touch ot tho wheel sent the tra^vler's blunt* bow pointing at the .sul)marine's whale-back and we wallowed menacingly toward the pirate. "Tho submarine .swung around .to avoid the impact and the sides of the trawler scroped along the sides of the submarine. The periscope was still well out ot the water, but was begln-Ing to Blip down as the submarine dived. "The skipper yelled for a hammer, a crowbar, anything that would hurt. One ot the crew thrust a coal shovel into his hands and he scrambled on the ^bulwarks and leaned over, two of the crew hanging on to his coat so that he could not fall overboard. Backwards and forwards he swung tho heavy scoop at the fragile periscope and the third blow reduced it to fi-agments, "The submarine commander, hearing the noise and wondering what new and horrible device the enemy had in^nt ed, crept to his periscope to have a look but all was black. He was blind tliK season. One need only mentli^n tho admirable portrait of the doctor which Walter J-Jdwln contributes-u portrait perfect In professional polso and unstudied naturalness; Misa Clara Sidney's richly unotuoun impersonation of the gin-soaked moth'er; Mr. Cbarlos Cardon's gripping portrayal of the slacker: the sounil comedy ot Mr. Monger's Monte and that difficult role of the Cockney gadabout, so ably por-troyed by Miss Dulclo Hall.
