Tioga Eagle (Newspaper) - July 17, 1918, Wellsboro, PennsylvaniaThe agitator pa., wednesday july 17, 1918. The mercy Call of the sea. The stupidity and cruelty of our enemies. German warfare has rendered ube Lees the mercy Call of the sea. We All know that the final act which brought America into the War Germany s declared and executed ruthless warfare on both Passen Ger and freight shipping on the Ocean. International Law on destruction of belligerent and Neutral shipping is Clear and humane so far As Thero can be humanity in warfare. The Rule provides that before a boat is bunk the destroyer must Rescue the passengers and make them Safe then under certain rules it is Legal to milk the boat. But Germany developed the sub Marine and submarines can act Only As makes of the sea. The old Rule of warfare the old agreement the old pledge of Honor Given at. Men and As nations did not buit the German method of warfare As applied the submarine so Honor and the Given word had to go and the germans deliberately sent boats and passengers to the Bottom of the Ocean without warning. But worse than that has been her action with the development of wireless Telegraph came the distress Call or a Nerv Call the s. O. S. Call of the Aea. A boat in trouble could Send up that approach the London up a curtain of shrapnel fire about the that is Many big guns powerful enough to shoot two or three Miles in the air. Are Keut in certain positions and fired constantly so Long As the enemy planes Are hovering near. The guns Are not aimed at the planes but so Manv of them Are fired that it is almost impossible for a plane to get Over the City without being hit. Most planes and the fire so hot that the pilots turn Back but frequently one or two get through and do their damage. It is said and the authority seemed Good that it costs London 000 for powder and shells every time they have to fight off German air planes. And a fight takes place on signal to they Cuoio return to their Homes with safety. Germany is As stupid As she is cruel in this method of warfare for it demonstrates does not understand the British character at All failing sought. Absolutely in the object e g. Pipp. Nearly every Clear Moonlight night. There is a constant booming of the guns of defense for two or three hours at a time. The planes come up the thames River and locate the by counting Bridges that Cross the River. Zeppelins quit coming some time ago. That is because the British in vented a Shell that would set the Zeppelin on fire so Long As British shells merely punctured the Bottoms of the zeppelins the germans did t mind but with the inflammable Shell the restrict their raids to the air planes. The object is to terrorize the Brit ish women and children with the Hope of bringing England to a Ger Man peace. The terrorize Many of the women and children but the effect is directly opposite that sought by the raid Tor it Only leads pie to the inhuman be of warfare makes them fight the harder to Down the militarism that orders it More than that it helps to arouse All Christendom against the brutal warfare of Germany four of these raids were made in the four week that i was in London. In three of them an air plane got German orders to America. Extracts from a speech by Secretary of agriculture Houston. H was from this Feudal minded vain insolent and arrogant Power from Tho military overlords of Prus Sia that Tho orders Camo in february 1917, to us to of the freest people in the world. These orders were the final expression of prussian whim. Keep your people at Home they commanded. Tie up All your ships except one. Stripe h As i dictate let it sail on the Day 1 fix Send it to the port i designate. Tell manufacturers to keep their products in their warehouses. Surplus foodstuffs go to waste. Tell your Farmers to keep their millions of Bales of Cotton their Grain and their meat at Home till i order otherwise. Set aside International Law and accept my Law of necessity till i crush the great modern free states of Europe. Stand by till i finish with them and then maybe 1 will attend to you. Although our spies Are operating among your peo ple in Mexico Japan and elsewhere even while you give hospitality to our ambassador and although our agents Are ing your plants and our submarines Are killing your Citi Zens stand aside. These Are my or what would we do about it what answer would we make what answer was there except one life is precious but not at the sacrifice of everything that makes it Worth while. National peace is desirable but not at the Cost of everything that makes a nation Worth saving. No Man worthy of the name of american Cit Izen in such a situation could fall to exclaim with Patrick Henry is life so dear or peace so swot As to be purchased at the Price of chains and slavery forbid it almighty god. I know not what course others May take but As for me give me Liberty or give a what would Washington have said and and Samuel Adams and Andrew Jackson what Lincoln and Davis Grant and Lee Sherman and Stonewall Jackson what Albert Sidney Johnston. Stuart Sheridan Almeade Thomas Wheeler Hancock and hosts of others who died that the nation might live what did you say then what do Jou say now for my part i would rather see this nation gloriously fail fighting for Freedom with great eng land heroic France Italy and Bel Gium and to see it pass from the pages of history than to see it survive in the greatest ease and luxury submissive in any respect to the dictation German we have discovered that there is truth in Jefferson s assertion that the tree of Liberty is a tender Plant and that As it grows from More to More it has to be watered by the blood of we have discovered that Independence in this world is not a thing which can for All time be secured by what is done at a Given place Cana Dajas Park permanent playground established in Rocky mountains. In of the sword highest Peak Forest tract streams and valleys form attractive features of the resort. Canada is following the example of the United states in setting aside tracts of her Rocky Mountain Region As per manent playgrounds for the people. The latest of these is Jasper Park far up in the wild Northwest where the play is still top rough to attract any great hordes of Urban dwellers but which is one of the most Beautiful bits of Mountain scenery in the world. The building of the grand trunk Pacific Railroad had a Good Deal to do with the setting Nolde of Jasper Park. In Jasper Park fenced in the highest Mountain in Canada an immense tract of Virgin Forest and Hill country a miscellaneous assortment of nameless glaciers of various sizes half a dozen big Trout streams and num Berless Little Green valleys that look As though they were Laid out by a land scape Gardener. That the Park is still difficult of Access and Calls for Pioneer ing methods in its exploration is Only another recommendation in the eyes of the Lover of the out of doors. Here also certain important Rivers take a Humble Start in prominent streams As the Saskatchewan and the Columbia. The land looks As untouched and As primitive As Virginia must have appeared to John Smith but As a matter of fact it has a Long and romantic his tory whose record is still to be writ ten. And May the Man who writes it Wield a skilful pen and May he possess a real imagination for his subject de serves it. This Region Lay for centuries i on the Boundary of the preserves of two great fur Hudson s Bay and the great Western. Here they fought Battles without number for the trapping Between Man and Man instead of Between Mil Lions and millions but All the More full of daring of strategy and of adventure for that. And there too was a favorite Hunting ground of those free lances of the wilderness the free traders who committed the ultimate bin of bearing allegiance to no com Pany and Many of whom paid for it with their lives. These cold Green glaciers have seen a thousand thrilling dramas played out years before the explorers came for the trappers were too Busy to publish accounts of what they found. They were after fur. Nevertheless in Canada As in the they were the men who really opened the West Home of cult was at Wenden on North line of the German offensive in Russia. The National geographic society 16 sues the following War geography bul Letin on Wenden on trip line of the German offensive in the direction of Petrograd the town of Wenden one of the old est in the province of Livonia in Situ ated a few Miles by rail Northeast of Riga. It is a picturesque place built two Miles from the left Bank of the bluer a. The a flows in a South Westerly direction from this Point through that part of Russia known As the a Vonlan Switzerland not on account of the height of highest Hill is Only 265 be cause of the Charm of the landscape with its Well wooded slopes bordering the River Valley. The Story of Wenden goes Back seven centuries to the time when the Breth Ren of the sword recognized by Pope innocent in in 1202, made this place their Headquarters in the Campaign inaugurated by them to disseminate christianity among the Heathen Alvo plans. A Castle was built Here in 1210, and though it is now scarcely More than a crumbling ruin As it was never restored after the destructive fire of 1748, around it Cluster Manj romantic and fascinating stories. One of the most celebrated grand masters of the Brethren of the sword was Walter von Plettenberg who Rose to Power during the closing years of the fifteenth Century and was finally recognized As a Prince of the Empire by the emperor Charles v in 1527. Plettenberg also built the Castle of Riga which has fared bet Ter than the Wenden stronghold Foi it is still used As the seat of the rus Sian authorities or rather was used up to the time of Riga s fall a few weeks the most tragic chapter in the history of Wenden was enacted in 1577 when the members of the Garrison of the Castle besieged by the forces of the implacable Ivan the terrible blew themselves up rather than fall into the hands of the Czar. The Castle soon repaired however and a Short time thereafter was the residence of Patricius no deck appointed Bishop of Wenden in 1583 by Stephen Bathory. King of Poland.

There must be another fourth of july for All the world and we Are now in fhe midst of making it Good. But j verily believe that when we this time set me world tree from Germany its Independence will not again be seriously menaced for Germany is its last great foe. Motorcycle for Hunting. The feat of the horseback rider of Cowboy Days who could kill game or an enemy while Riding full tilt is if not surpassed by a naturalist and taxidermist who shoots some of his Quarry while Riding at High Speed on his motorcycle Accord the to Putar mechanics Maga Zine. He hns devised a Clamp to hold his loaded Shotgun above the gasoline tank of his Cycle while a Sling attached to the weapon passes Over his shoulder. His method is to ride swiftly along the Road and when he sees a desirable Bird perched near the High Way he seizes his gun and fires upon it without slackening Speed. This of course involves skill in Riding with out touching the handlebars. By this spectacular method the naturalist is Able to fell Birds which would take flight if approached by stealth. Through and each time women and children were killed. It is probably True that the ger1 mans to to hit definite objects in their flight but the difficulty in aim ing Well can be realized if you can imagine yourself on a fast flying express train on the Edge of a Preci and trying to throw a missile from a Miles an hour.

The French advanced systematically. The colonel kept in touch with the rear through his Liaison run ners. By and said the american he released a Carrier Pigeon. It flew away through the gunfire. The ground was obscured by the Clouds of dust and torn Earth. Air planes were swooping overhead pelting us with machine gun fire. The air was filled with vivid flashes from the massed guns. It trem bled with the continuous shocks. Why did you release the i asked. Have your other Means of communication suddenly " of said the colonel smiling benevolent it is Only that i am very fond of Birds and i thought it would please the Pigeon " his Price was Low. While ashore in a port of one of the Little Island republics in the carib bean a number of United states marines attended a Bull fight that Wai graced by the presence of his Excel Lency the president of the Republic says the saturday evening Post. The sea soldiers occupied a Box near presidential party and to amuse them selves while waiting for the show to begin threw pennies into a River thai flowed by the Arena and watched native boys dive for them. The word quickly passed that so Dados Ameri Canos were pitching wealth into Muddy Waters and soon hundreds of Black shining faces were on the Banks of the River just outside the Bull ring the marines enjoyed themselves hugely watching the Little Fellows dive bul finally ran out of pennies and wer forced to raise the limit to quarters and half dollars. One Marine More reckless than the others pitched a big Silver Dollar while a score of Blach boys dived for it. He was jus Aboul to repeat the performance when an excited native seated near by plucked at his sleeve and whispered hoarsely please Don t do that Senor you la have the president in 1918 Little Marie was born in a vol Lage not far from Meleres it the ardennes.

This is yet another use to which pigeons have been put in this War. The ingenuity of the French in this respect however hard to beat observes a correspondent. In one of our allies War museums is an apparatus which shows How the French have at tempted to get news from their invaded territories. It consists of a balloon which carries 40 Carrier pigeons.
