What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

THE STANFORD WORLD • Carolyn of the Corners BY RLII7-I BELMORE ENDICOTT Copyright, 1918. by Doe& Maim CHAPTER XII. --12-- Something Carolyn May Wishes to Know. Carolyn May's heart was filled with trouble. This was the result of her first talk %%Rh the old sailor. Not front him nor from anybody else, did Carolyn May get any direct information that the ssailor had been aboard the InInraVell 4011 her fatal voyage. But his story awoke in the child's breast doubts ii ml longings, uncertainties and desires that had•lain dorninnt for many weeks. Uncle Joe and Aunty Rose loved her and were kind to her. hut that feel- ing of \emptiness\ tine had at first so troubled Carolyn May was returning. She began to droop. Keen -eyed Atudy Rose discovered this physical change very quickly.' \She's hest like u droopy chicken,\ declared the good woman. \and good- hess I have seen enough of them.\ So. as a stimulant and a preventive of \draoopiness Aunty Hose prescribed boneset tea, \plenty of it.\ Three times a day Carolyn May was dosed with bomiset tea.

TI In. the hackman, worked at logging in the winter months, too, lie usually went past the Stagg place with a feam four times each day. There was something Carolyn May -.wished to ask Benjamin Howdy, but he did not want anybody else to know what It was—not even Uncle Joe or Aunty Rose. Once in the fall and be- fore the snow came she had ridden as far as Adams' camp with Mr. Parlow. He had gone there for some hickory wood. V) ride on the empty sled going in and on top of the load of logs coining out of the forest. Carolyn May felt sure, would be much more excitino. She mentioned her desire to Unele Joe on a Friday evening. \Well now, if it's pleasant, I don't see anything to forbid. Do you, Aunty Bose?\ Mr. Stagg returned. \I presume Tim will take the best of eere of her,\ the women said. \Maybe. getting out more in this air will make her look less peaked. Joseph Stagg.\ The excitement of preparing to go to the camp the next morning bought . the roses into Carolyn May's cheeks ad made her eyes sparkle. When Tine the hackman, went into town with his first load he was forewarned be Aunty Rose that he would have coompany going back. \Pitcher of George Washington!\ ex- claimed Tim. \The boys will near 'bout take a holiday.\ There was but one woman 'in the camp, Judy Mason. She lived in one of the log huts with her husband. Ile was a sawyer, aud Judy did the men's washing. Benjamin Hardy was pleased. In- deed, to see his little friend again. \You come with nue pease,\ she whispered to the old seaman after din- °I've Been So Near Drownin' Myself, That They Thought I Was Dead When I Was Hauled Inboard. air. \You can smoke.

What'll we talk about?\ queried Benjamin cau- tiously, for he remembered that he was to be very circumspect in his con- versation with her. \I want you to tell me something.

The boy harnessol himself with the long towrope and skated away from the shore, dragging the sled after him at a brisk pace. \Oh my!\ squealed Carolyn May, \there isn't anybody else on the ice.\ \We won't run into nobody, then.\ laughed the boy. It was too misty outside the cove to see the open water; but it was there, and Chet knew it ns well as anybody. the had no intention of taking any riske—especlaily with Carolyn May in his charge. The wind blew out of the Cove. too. As they drew awey from the shelter of the land they felt its strength,. leatnrally, neither the boy nor the little girl—and surely net the dog— Melted back toward the land. Other- wise. they would have seen the snow flurry (lint swept down over the town and quickly hid it from the cove. Chet was skating his very swiftest Carolyn May was screaming with de- light. Prince barked jeyfully. And, suddenly. in a startling fashion, they came to a fissure in the ice! The boy darted to one side, heeled on his right skate, and stopped. Ile had jerked the sled aside, too, yelling to Carolyn May to \hold fast !\ But Prime. wits !Meg from it, and scram- bled over the ire, barking loudly. \Oh dear me!\ cried Carolyn May. \You stopped too quick, Chet Gorm- ley. Goodness! There's a hole in the Ice!\ \And I didn't see It till we Was al- most in it,\ acknowledged Chet. \It's morel, n hole. Why! there's a great field of ice broke off and sailin\out Into the hike.\ \Oh my!\ gasped the little girl. The boy knew at once that Ile must be careful in Making his way home with the little girl. Having seen one great fissure in the ice, he might come upon another. It seemed to him as though the ice under his feet was in 'notion. In the distance was the sound of a reverberating crash that could mean but one thing. The ice in the cove was breaking up! The waters of the two brooks were pouring down into the cove. Spring had really come, and the annual freshet was likely now to force the ice entirely out of the cove and open the way for traffic In a few hours. CHAPTER X I II. The Chapel Bell. If Joseph Stagg had obeyed the pre- cept of his little niece on this particu- lar afternoon and had been \looking up,\ instead of having his nese in the big ledger, making out monthly state- ments, Ile might have discovered the coming 'dorm In season to withdraw his permission to Chet to take Caro- lyn May out on the ice. It was always dark enough in he little beck Ake in winter for the hard. mire dealer to have a lamp hurtling. So he did not notice the snow flurry that yad taken Sunrise Cove In its anus until he (glanced to walk out to the front of the store for needed exercise. \I deelare to limn, it's snowing!\ nouttereol Joseph Stagg. '\I'llought we'd got thronell with that for this iseuson.\ He opened the store door. Teere vetts a chill. Hammy wind, and the snow %rim ditinp and packed quickly under foot. \Ilium!

Ile quickened his pace. lie Was run- ning—sepping and sliding over the wet snow—when lie turned into the street on welch Ids store boy and his wid- owed mother lived. Mrs. Gormley saw him coming from the windows of the tiny front room. Mr. Stagg plunged into the little house, head down, and belligerent. \Where's that plagued boy?\ lie de- manded. \Don't tell me he's taken Hannah's Carlyn out on the cove in this storm!\ \But—you told him he could!\ wailed the widow. \What if I did? I didn't know 'twat going to snow like (his, did I?\ \But it wasn't snowin' when they went,\ said Mrs. Gormley, plucking up some little spirit. \I'm sure It wasn't Chetwood's fault. Oh, dear!\ \Woman.\ gronned Joseph Stake, \It doesn't matter whose fault it Is—or If it's anybody's fault. The mischief's done. The ice is hreakieg up. It's drifting out of the Inlet.\ Just at this moment an unexpected voice broke into the discussion. \Are you positive they went out on the cove to slide, Mrs. Gormley?\ \Oh yes, I be, Mandy,\ answered the seamstress. \Chet said lie was goin' there, and what Chet says he'll do, he always does.\ \Then the ice has broken away and they have been carried out into the lake,\ groaned Mr. Stagg. Mandy Parlow came quickly to the little hall. \Perhaps not, Joseph.\ she said, speaking directly to the hardware deal- er. \It tnay be the storm. It snows so fast they would easily get turned, around—be unable to end the shore.\ Another reverberating crash ii - hoed from the cove. Mrs. Gormley wrung her hands. \Oh my Chet! Oh, my Chet!\ she wailed. \He'll be drowned!\ \He won't be, if he's got any sense,' snapped Mr. Stagg. \I'll get some men and we'll gm -after them.\ \Call the dog, Joseph Stagg.

Now, and ever totem lie is: Herr Wilhelm ilohenzolit'rn—by the grace of his people. A decant of world tiornittion obsess- ing the mind (of Ettmeroor William plunged the world into war. Upon him and the tremendous militairy en- gine• of destruction of which he was the embodiment, the expoon•-nt mod the lender, rests the responsibility of de- liberittely planning and loringing about the greatest conflict the world has ever seen. Sought World Dominion. Ile signed the order for the German mobilization. Ile stood sponsor for the terroriseretinti brienteinge which, tinder the guise of warfare, ravished Belgium, laid Waste tile titles of France, depoomiatial and outraged Ser- bia and sent the Lusitania with her freight of women and children to a grave in the Atlantic.

He who lind long proclaimed Is imself the prince of pence stood ee• vended as humanity's scourge. Claims Almighty as His Ally. Many doubt whether William was entirely sane. Ile said repeatedly [hut he possessed a (evilly Mandate to rule. that the Almighty was his ,\unconde Clonal and avowed alle.\ It Is not en- tirely clear whether such outgivings were the product of n disordered broiin or were due to unbounded egotism and an effort to impress his subjects with the Idea of reverent and unquestioning submission. his speches to his armies In which he asserted he and they were \Instru- ments of divine judgment upon Ger- many's enemies\ were regarded by many outside of Gerumny eui pieces of rhetoric. Intended only to deceive his own people. Few statesmen realized that the em- peror in his '\shinitig armor,\ maneu- vering his armies and fleets, building up .the Germen eystene . ce- menting the central empires and Tur- key, and fostering the preaching of the supremacy of autocracy, was erecting a machine that one day would make war upon all civilization. Yet the world wns warned by some far-sighted men that the emperor wonld one day bring catastrophe upon the nations. These nien saw in him then and see him now as a mad Inven- tor. given in his youth the most dan- gerous of all toys—his army and navy. They were his playthings. Ile de- vehmed them throughout the years to the point where he had to put them to a test. Like a crazed Inventor,' he feared the end of his reign would find his inventions untried, so grasped the first opportunity to wage a world war. Seize Pretense to Open War. Meantime the German war party grew, with William at IM head, and the Acheine of world dominion awaited the hour to begin its attainment. It cause with the assassination of the Austrian A rthduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife at Sarajevo. Recalled front a yachting trip, Wil- liam presided at a conference at Pots- dam 'of representatives of the German and Austrian armies, navies and corn mercial interests. There, according to the best information obtainable, the lecision was reached to make the as- tassination of the archduke a pretense for the world war for which Germany had long prepared. In the dipionintic exchanges between Germany and Austria on one side and Great Britain, France and Russia on :he other William posed as one wishing for peace hut driven to war. Ile signed the order for the mobiliza- tion of the Gertnan army, and from that moment war WWI Inevitable. Publicatioti of the \Willy-Nicky\ eorrespondence to 1917 placed the Ger- man emperor in the ilght of an unscru- pulous plotter. The telegrams disclosed that Emperor William had induced Emperor Nicholas of Russia to sign a secret agreement to which he was to force the adherence of France in the perfection of an offensive and defens- ive alliance against England. The treaty was discovered anti repudiated by a Itiosslan minister. Failing in his attempt, the Gernian emperor Act upon himself tli( task of drawing England to 1118 side against Frame and Russia. How well he thought he had suc- ceeded in this may be gathered from a letter he wrote to President Wilson in 191-1 in wheel he sititl King Georg( liftd premised Prince Henry of Prussia, on July 29, 1914, that England would remain neutral iti a war involving the central powers with France and Rus- sia. Lichnowsky Shows Up Intrigue. Perhaps the most direct and authori- tative of the accusations against the Gertmei emperor and the pan-Germans are contained in the published secret mentoranslum of Prince Charles Max Liclitiowsky, who was German am- bussilder at London at the outbreak of hoetilities. The prince unemilvocally placed the blame for the wor on Germany, and for his frankness was !mitre:41mM in a Silesian chattel'', permanently expelled from the Prue:shin house (of lords, which action wits saitt•tioned by the emperor, and filially Willi exiled to Switzi•riand.

Friedrich Williehn Victor Albert was horn January 27, 1859. and became Emperor William II on the death of ills father, Frederick III, June 15, 1888. lie came out of tile University of Bonn fully prepared to enter the school of statecraft. Set to wonk in the govern- ment bureaus, he was early taught the routine of official lousiness under the tutelage of the great Bismarck. At the denth of his father, the im- perial throne devolved upon \William II, who was then but twenty-nine years cif age. Bisumrek continued as chancellor. but not for long. In 1890 the disagreement of the two mei reached it crisis, a rupture came and Bismarck went. The relations be- tween the two men remained strained for several years, but before Bismarck died peace was made between them. Stickier for Military Etiquette. With the passing of Bismarck the emperor's real reign began. As a mili- tary man be was a stickler for effi- ciency, discipline nnil the observance of etiquette to the last detail. And with the details of all these components of army life and training he was familiar to the smallest point. In everything he was described as thorough and, withal, one of the hard- est woreers in the empire. Physically unimpresidve—he was short and inclined to stoutness—Wil- li e was fond of being ph d otographe wh striking a military posture, though taking good care to veil the deformity of Ills left arm, a disfigure- ment with which he was born and of which he wee extreinely sensitive. He blamed his English mother for living a life of self -Indulgence and cursed her repeatedly as being responsible for his deformity. He married Augusta Victoria, oldest daughter of Grand Duke F-ederick of Stedeswig - Holstein - Sonnerburg- Au- gustenburg, on Februnry 27, 1881. They had six sons and one daughter, of whom the Crown Prince_Frederick Is the eldest. With the crown prince, his father clashed frequently, anti on one occnsion virtually exiled young Frederick to Dantzig, but soon -recalled him. Germen mothers who wrote to the etnperor -of the deaths of their sons killed in battle elicited from him no word of sympathy. Ile regarded their deaths as \glorious.\ Yet Ills own six sons, though holding high commands, were so protected that the imperial family _stood practically alone in all Gentinny in warding oft tee clutcher of death, After the Grip What?

If there is a sudden onset of what appears like a hard cold, one should go to bed, wrap warm, take a hot mustard foot -bath and drink copi- ously of hot lemontide. If pain develops In head or back, ask the druggist for &mule (anti -uric) tablets.
