GERMANY'S HONOR. |
"No act of violence, says Dr. Han I el
▼on Halmhauseo Id announcing Ger<!
many's unconditional acceptance o|
the allied terms of peace, "can touch
the honor of the German people." j
That Is, of course, true. But It meana
nothing, considering the antecedent
circumstances. The German peopl#
themselves destroyed German honor
long ago, says Providence Journal,
There Is no such thing remaining.
They sacrificed it to their mad lust
for world dominion, their brutal loy
alty to the house of Hohenzoliern.
They framed a new "moral" code for
themselves In which honor had no
part They made everything subordl-1
nate to the material success of the
German state. To say that no act of
tiie allies can touch German honor Is
to Indulge In merely maudlin sentl-1
ment. The allies have not struck at
Germany's honor. In spite of anything
Dr. Hanlel von Haimhausen may
say. They found that she had no re-
gard for honor and they were com-
pelled to proceed accordingly.

"Poland is dissatisfied, and a war
between that country and Germany Is
Inevitable," Ignace Jan Paderewskl,
Poland's premier, Is quoted as saying.
The premier reminds the peace com-
missioners at Paris that they have left
Germany an opening In the east to
Russia and that a Husso-German alli-
ance will take place within ten years.
Germany surely is watching events In 1
Russia and preparing to obtnln raw
materials and man power In that vast
and rich country If she Is cut off from i
the west. It perhaps Is not too much
to say that Hussia is the key to the
future peace of the world. Control of

To make the transposition more sim-

to the secretary of war. has set up
the wheels of a giant machine, which
Is working night and day to co-oper-

The trouble with the majority of
men Is, they think money Is wealth.
They think that work Is a secondary

more of a wealth creator than the plow

This figure represents a woman with

child on her lap, while underneath, on
the base of the monument, Is carved a
cross. The group Is symbolical of the
stronger nations protecting the smaller
and weaker ones, while the cross Is the
emblem of mercy. The whole group Is
carved In the fona of a cross, giving
special significance to the order to
which Nurse Cavell belonged. Another
huge block of granite near by has a big
lion carved on it, with head erect and
mane bristling. Trampled beneath Its
feet Is a serpent, writhing, but defeat-
ed. The total weight of the memorial,
when finished, will be about 170 tons,
with a height of about 40 feet. The
group probably will be erected near
the British National gallery.

This has been a wonderful year for
women to win athletic prizes and col-

Tasting With the Nose.
The sensation of taste, while of com-
mon and constant experience, is highly
complicated In Its nature. What Is
commonly called taste Is not a simple j
sensation at all, but rather a complex.
In addition to the actual functioning '
of the apparatus properly pertaining
to the sense of fnste, the tongue re-
ceives Impressions of various other
sorts, all of which go to make up this
complex. As finally recorded in the
consciousness, the taste of any sub-
stance has to do with its I • or cool- ;
ness, perhaps with a mild iount of
pain, certainly with asti-ingenc.v or
acridity—which are in themselves fur- j
tlier complexes of thermic and tactile
sensations—and above all with smell. '
The reader will probably agree that
ice cream and coffee are entirely dif- !

folded and with his nose stopped to

The Diamond bar, famous for nearly
50 years as a part of the old Auzerals
house, of San Jose. Cal., is being fitted
up for a grocery store. The Auzerals
house, on West Santa Clara street,
housed five presidents of the United
States and was for a time the abode of
a king. It was built In 1863, accord-
ing to John E. Auzerals of Sun Jose,
and the barroom was the meeting
place for many of the men whose
names have been written into the his-
tory of California.
President Grant was entertained at
a banquet In the Auzerals house In
1879. The following spring King Ka-
lakau of Hawaii was a guest, and In
September of the same year President
Hayes delivered an address from the
balcony. President Harrison was a
guest in 1891 and both McKinley and
Roosevelt visited the famous old hotel
j on their tours of the United States.

then came sudden relief. He turned
