VOLUME 9. NO. 13, 


Austria-Hungary Squealing. 

When General Pershing’s army 
of Americans hit the Hun line 
and wiped out the St. Mehiel 
salient in 27 hours in one of the 
most spectacular offensives of the 
war, Austria-Hungary began to 
squeal for peace. But the hand 
of the kaiser is too plainly seen 
in the peace overtures, and the 
Allies will not be deceived. No 

peace terms that do not 

recognize the unconditional sur- 
render of the Central Powers and 
the overthrowing of the Hohen- 
zollern and Hapsburg dynasties. 
No sane American wants peace 
until Germany is destroyed and 
all the world made democratic. 
The people of Germany and Aus- 
tria must be made feel the weight 
of the yoke of their rulers so 
heavily that they will throw it 
off. No peace can be until Ger- 
many and her allies are crushed 
and humbled. New rulers and 
a new kind of government must 
be ordered in those countries. 
This war is for the purpose of 
wiping autocracy from the face 
of the earth, and no treaty will 
ever be made with the present 
rulers of the Central Powers. 

It is treason to talk of

Some of the more restless-minded

One-third of a cupful of sugar is equivalent 
nllUjy to one-third of a cup of honey, about one- 
half cup of syrup and about one-half cup of corn sugar. 
One-fourth of a cup of sugar is equal to about one-half 
cup of syrup or one-third cup of corn sugar. One table- 
spoon of sugar is equal to one tablespoon of honey, about 
one and one-half tablespoons of syrup and one and one- 
third tablespoons of corn sugar. 

Sugar may be saved by the use of raisins, dates, figs, 
dried pears and fruit pastes used on the breakfast cereals. 

Fruit marmalades, butters and jellies should be used 
to take the place of the ordinary sweetening at a meal and 
not as accessories to it. Fruits may be preserved without 
sugar. It may be added when sugar is more plentiful. 

Preserving demands this year a thin syrup instead of a 
heavy syrup. 

If sugar is used one-half of the amount may be replaced 
by another sweetener. 

Drying is a means of preserving (without sugar) ap- 
ples, cherries, strawberries and black caps. 

When ready to use they may have added the needed 
sugar in the form of a syrup. When sugar is more plentiful 
fruit juiceB may be made into jellies or may be used as 
fruit juices with or without sugar, as beverages, fruit 
gelatins and frozen desserts. 

Fresh fruits supply the place of sugar in the diet. They 
Bhould be used freely. Desserts where sugar is scarce

Aside from the tax free features,

to spread their p<n on. But, iortunafeiy for the world, 
the Hun can think only in the German language. He has 
absolutely no conception of the thoughts and ideals that 
animate the soul and brain of the peoples who think and 
speak as human beings. He cannot comprehend the lofty 
idealism of a people that causes them to give life and 
treasure for the sake of principle. Devoid of all the God- 
like attributes he reasons only along the lines of Germans 
and kindred brutes. Force is his shibboleth, and he is 
amenable to no argument save force. 

When you hear the expression: “The war will soon 

be over,” look closely into it and you will find its origin in 
the subtle propaganda of the German. The war will not 
be over until Prussianism is crushed and the German way 
of thinking is banished from the earth. There is much to 
do yet before that is accomplished. The end is not in 
sight. The war is in its infancy yet, and the -immediate 
future is pregnant with grave probabilities for the allies. 
A peace based upon the present status of the billigerents 
would leave Germany the victor. The allies must not even 
think of peace until the serpent of Prussianism is annihi- 
lated along with its defenders. 

Again, the Hun bid for peace negotiatiops was intend- 
ed primarily to strengthen the morale of their own peo- 
ple. Since the allies have so emphatically refused to lis-

Bangor. Me.— In contrast with '.ha 
anxiety or willingness of the Gerr. m 
soldier to fall enptive to the allies, so 
often manifested, Is the declaration of 
Gaston Julian Defolrdt of Woonsocket. 
It. I., now visiting relatives here, that 
he would much rather die fighting on 
the front line than to go thnu-h such 
pains and miseries as he < d, red In 
two years spent In n German prison 
eamp. Defolrdt, who Is twenty-four 
and well educated, was vl' i.lng In 
France when the war came un i very 
soon he was In the ranks. On the sec- 
ond dny of his service nt the front he 
wns wounded in the left ear by a frag- 
ment of shrapnel and three days later 
he was taken prisoner. 

With many other prisoners he was 
sent to the rear, and there they were 
londed like so many cattle hi to freight 
cars and stnrtcd on a seven days’ ride 
to the prison camp at Altengrabow. 

“At every way station where the 
train stopped,” says Defolrdt, “the 
German people gathered round and 
threw stones and spat ln our faces. 
We were subjected to all sorts of In- 
sults. Many of us were wounded, yet 
we got no attention whatever, being 
given scarcely food enough to keep us 
alive and nmde to sleep ou the floors 
of the dirty freight cars. 

“When finally we found ourselves In 
the German prison camp conditions 
were worse rather than better. There 
were about 25, 000 men at Altengrabow, 
all nationalities mingled. Wc were 
guarded by German soldiers who had 
been Incapacitated for service nt the 
front and who on account of their 
wounds were revengeful toward us. 

Dogs Refused Prison Fare. 

"It would be dllficult to picture ln 
words the awful conditions prevailing 
ln that camp. Our diet consisted for 
the most pnrt of hot water and de- 
coyed vegetables — they called It soup. 
Sometimes we were given herbs mixed 
with grasH to eat. Under such treat- 
ment the strongest men soon fell sick 
and were scarcely able to move about. 
The smell of this soup often was so 
nauseating that men held their noses 
while eating It. Dogs would take one 
sniff at it and refuse to eat
