TWO BROKEN SPIRITS.
"You English clamor to get father
and me away from Holland. We are
down and out, and my father is a
broken man. "Isn't that enough
punishment?" the former German
crown prince said to a London news
paper correspondent yesterday.
It may appear to the Ilohenzollern
family that the punishment is
ample, too great, indeed, that they ;
should be down and out and broken.
When Cain was banished, it is re
corded in the Bible, he declared that
his punishment "was greater than
he could bear." Still, justice has
never been satisfied with the mere
catching of the culprits. Had Ger
many won its fight against civiliza
tion, it is not in reason to suppose
it would have been satisfied with
the confession from Franco and
England and the United States that
they were down and out and broken.
The former crown prince also
makes it clear that he quarreled with
his father over the question as to
whether or not England would ent
er the war, which is enlightening
only from the standpoint of the do
mestic relations of the former em
peror's family. But not oven the
differences of opinion between the
kaiser and his son over what might
happen, nor the broken spirit of the
kaiser and his son now that it bar.
hannened. is likely to satisfy the
world against tho crime which they
have committed toward it.
And. besides, who knows but that
the broken and contrite spirit of the
two might bo wonderfully repaired
if the fear was removed of the Eng
lish clamor "to get father and me
away from Holland." K. C. Star.
NEW DATE FOR THANKSGIVING.
It is inevitable, that Armistice
day should henceforth be widely ob
served in this country and in every
other one of the countries allied
against the central empires. Its ob
servance may quite conceivably ex
tend even to some of the neutral
countries. It will become an inter
national holiday, if it docs not be
come absolutely a world holiday.
Under the circumstances wh
should not the United States make
a first move by declaring the day a
national holiday of thanksgiving in
substitution, if necessary, for the
present Thanksgiving day now cele
brated on the last Thursday of No
vember? The shift in dates involv
ed would not be of material im
portance. Thanksgiving was set
late in November when we were es
sentially an agricultural people, and
the housing of tho crops was a mat
ter of paramount national signifi
cance. Of course, the successful
garnering of the season's produce is
really a matter of as vital import
ance as ever, but comparatively few
of the people of the nation think
much about it on Thanksgiving day,
md those that do could be quite as
thankful on November 11 as they
could two weeks later. We are in
clined to the belief that a change in
date in recognition of an event for
which we will forever be most grate
ful would serve to give new and
vital significance to an annual oc
casion now too often only perfunc
torily observed or else made purely
an occasion for merry-making. I)e

THE KAISER AS A BLUFFER.
The collapse of the German em
pire carries with it a lesson that
Americans can afford to profit by, for
a belief in the e'licacy of Jluff is ono
of our besetting sins. tTseful it may
be at the poker table and sometlnuis
at the critical or emotional turns
of life, but to rely on it as a regular
means of livelihood is to court in
cvitable diseaster. And when we
bear it said of an expert bluffer that
"he irets awav with it' even as
the burglar with the plate we may
be reasonably sure of that bluffer's
For years the kaiser, to employ
the idiom of the unthinking, "got
away with it," as has no other bluff
er, gentle or common, of all his con
temporaries. The efforts of the var
ious sovereigns and statesmen asso
ciated with him in his criminal ca-
reer were transparent and ineffect
ive in comparison. On his own
blasphemous assumption that the
Supremo Being was his partner in
crjme, looking with the eye of ap-
proval on his reckless violations of
every one of the divine commands,
he erected the hollow pyramid of
vain pretense that came crashing
down to earth when he himself fled
from the wrath of a people whom he
ha(i brutalized. Among the ruins
may be discovered the broken frag
ments of his financial, food and
"unconquerable army" bluffs. The
"divine right of kings" bluff has
been smashed to smithereens, to
quote from the Irish lexicon.
It is gratifying to know that ot-r
own nation was instrumental in
calling this mouumental bluff. We
can profit still further if we take
heed of the sermon that it preahce3.
