"Our iuntry! I" lir Intercourse win iot-
clffn imii.il muy she always be rtg-llt. but

Chaplain Flynn la Confident.
rtioplnln Klynn on a leave of absence from the
rren.'h iir.ny In wlilch he I serving gave out the
following in an Interview In New York city a few
There can be but one result Germany will
be defeated. There will ho no peace until Ger-
many In abaolutely defeated ao that he can
never again make war. fthc muit he defeated
. and compelled tu return all the territory ahe haa
taken in. in other nations."
None of u In thta country who will not give fervent
aupport to the aentlment of the chaplain. None In
thta country are there who will not ugreo that "thero
will he no peace until Germany la abaolutely de-
feated." The propoaed peace of Iho central powers
ao recently given out to the world through the Hu-
aian Boliihevtkl. doea not come to us from a defeated
adversary but bears the marka of a tricky fighter
who. doubtleaa looking Into the future and certainly
divining the Inevitable aeeka to anve Ita hide and hold
for Itaelf a place at International confabs In the future
it may aee the day of reckoning ufar off and It would
escapo It; but there ahall be no escape. The war
will go on and on and on. until civilisation I triumph-
ant and the cauae of war ahall have been crushed
and bunlNhed from the mldat of the world' activities.
Naturally we of America and of the entente coun-
tries have faith In the propheay of t'haplaln Klynn;
and looking at It from tho practical viewpoint we
're going to win. However if we do win wo must
ave and economise In every way for the war; wo
jnuat get rid of red tapo and peraonal foolishnes
and silly sentimentality in our departments; wo must
build ahipa whether of steel or wood It doea not mat-
ter; we must erect alrplum-a and train men to drive
them; we must save the lives of our enlisted men at
the training camps hy giving them sufficient clothing
or refuse t.. call them out until we can adequately
supply them. We can win tho war. of course and
we are going to win the war. There Isn't a person
in th v. . ii Id who believes otherwise bo he American
KukHsJi. l 't tu h or Prussian. Hut we aro going to
Cava m. mi-thing to do to occompllah thla end and
we will not eet the desired result until we sorloualj
atudy the war methods of our arch-enemy and go do
lik. I.- to i-.Miio extent at least. The senatorial In-
vestigations have shown that thero Is entirely too
much leisure in the ilepnrtnienta at Washington; that
there la no one who can be held peraonally roapon-
Mbta tot the fallurea which have been admitted; that
friendships and pull and politics and any number of
other things have held un exceedingly comforlablo
poaition there while .mr recruits nt the training camps
ara dying off in startling numbers and the French
aupply our expeditionary forces in Krunce with guns

There lan't 4iny doul.t ubout the entente allies win-
ning the war If they will -particularly here In Amer-
ica mix a llttlo var senao with theoretical obaerva-
tlons and moral uplift and look upon the aoldler pri-
marily as a fighting man. It la well enough to look
after his apirltual welfare and tuke from his path
StantaUnlM which demoralise; but the flrat collabora-
tion In war is to get the trained man on tho battle
line and stop tho uilvnu.es of the enemy. This can
be done here when it is realised that the enlisted
boys need certain things before they can be developed
Into hiurdy and healthy warriors fit to go out to
do l..ttle for the cause of their country and their
homes. Congress has done about everything It can
nnd Is willing to do anything ahead of it to inuHe cer-
tain the triumph of the entente allies but this will be
of little avail unless we have a war head which under-
stands wb.it tu do after it haa everything at hand

Touching on a Propheay.
Homa cynically Inclined Individual recently re-
marked that any man who trlea to road ail lha hooka
explaining tho war will surely go Insana Thla same
remark may wall ha extended to Include tha present
deluge of prophesies eonremlng conditions to be real
I aed after tho arar la ovar. Among these predictive
productions none Is more roseate than that faking up
an entire paga of lha editorial spaea of a prominent
Chlcagn paper. This prophet anys:
"The Industrial slave wilt not want to go back
to hla narrow restricted life. The open
spare will call him.
"Tha necessities of life are going to be tha ob-
ject of more and more governmental attention.
Governments will pay mora attention to
tha business needs of their nations.
' Health ultimately. 'will be en assured posses-
sion of the human race. It will be a governmental
obligation. Never mora will governments be per-
mitted to allow millions of people to live half
lives handicapped by preventable dlseaaea. .
Krience will he put at the disposal of all.
Work will be so Interspersed living will be so
planned that the largeet number of people pos-
sible will enjoy the exultant pleasures of being
thoroughly alive. Health Is an object of
the coming atate. With tha background of
better education there will bo fewer futile men
and women. An ever-growing number will work
because escape from work will be impossible.
"No longer will enlightened states suffer their
people to exist In the hovels which until the war
seemed sufficient. Wholesome people make nec-
essary wholesome houses. The vile tenements the
slums must go."
And much very much more to the same effect la
spread out over the page all limned with the freo
hand of a futurist painter and a vera libre scribbler
without regard to fundamentals. To take up seriatim
the claims of this one prophesy would Jar the brainpan
of the "wayfaring man" avers the Ietrntt Free Preaa
but It Is possible to look calmly on a fewpatent facta
having a bearing on after-war conditions and the
realisation of the shining Ideals of the Chicago prophet.
Kvery Kuropean nation will come out of the struggle
crippled In man-power finance organisation and all
the things dependent on thla trinity. Kvery one of
those nations will find itaelf facing reconstruction
problems requiring generations of labor to bring to
pass. Men are not grown In a day nor houses and
cities built In an hour by word of mouth. There will
be individual collective national and International
hunger and poverty for many a day in the process of
readjustment from a war to a peace basis. Men and
women anil children will need homos food clothing
companionship: will .experience Joy and grief and all
the human needs after war Just as before and during
war. And after war they will contend against the
diseases engendered by the hardships of war. It will
take Mother Nature more than one generation to
throw off this incubus.
In view of these plain facta how are the Elyslan
conditions of the Chicago prophet to be brought
about? He'has indicated that they are to come by
governmental paternalism of an autocratic character
n superlative Prusslanlsm a. condition of society In
which the Individual shall be submerged in the state
for the purpose of being made a superman for tha
construction of such a state aa never yet existed on
land or sea. In short the Chicago prophet haa so
magnified the idea of Nietzsche as to cast that German
madman Into the discard. Much a develop -nent v ould
blot Individualism democracy and freodo-n rff the
habitable earth and drive them to the expeJI nt of
Captain Nemo of Julea Verne's "Twenty Thousand
Leagues Under the Sea."
This Chicago attempt to mix' Nletxachelsm and mll-
lenlallsm produces a hybrid thought. The theory of
Nietzsche Is In proceas of being obliterated on Euro-
pean battlefields. The Chicago Idea will find a rest-
ing place against the wall of things aa they are. And
the millenlaliflt can go on comforting himself In tho
hope atnl belief and expectation of a aoJU-ctmlng

k man who had many honors though none of a
public character reoently died in a large eastern
city at tho uge of 87 years. He was a member of a
prominent family and had had a long and auccossfol
business career and waa held In the highest respe t in
tho city In which he lived. And thus waa not alto-
gether because of his family connection and business
success. He was a man of admirable personal quali-
ties and would have been respected In any atatlon of
life but there was more than this to commend him
to his fellow men. He waa a lover of the human ruco
and wa ever ready to ahare his large measure of
the good thing of life with thoae lea fortunate than
til ins. M. So It wa that In two recent winter when
buainess was dull and there was a great lack of em-
ployment this man gave large sum nut a alms
but to provide employment for men who aaked only
for the opportunity to work and support their fami-
lies. h quietly was thla done that few knew at the
time where the help came from but In the cuurav
of timo tha fact became known and brought to him
the full nieaaure of auch appreciation as his acts
merited. He was also a liberal contributor to the
direct charity work that waa neceasary athe time.
It 1 fact of tins kind that stand out most promi-
nently now that he Is dead. Many worthy men have
learned for the first time who their benefactor was
and aa one they rise to bless his name. And this is
by no means un exceptional or a solitary case. Every
community has Ha men and women who are large-
hearted enough to feel that It la not for them to live
tor themselves alone nut of their abundance goes
help for those needing and deserving aid and their
reward Is the sense of satisfaction which cornea when
a duty Is well done. And these are the men and
women who live In the grateful remembrance of theas
Tu amass a fortune is one thing. To uao It that It
Is a blessing to the possessor and to thoae about him
hi quite another. Nothing la a truer test of real man-
hood and womanhood nothing goes further to prove
that man la yet above the dollar. Communities must
blessed with such men and women are the richest In
the world because they are rich In that which cannot
be measured by the dollar standard.
Juat so at thta particular asaaon of the year

making many hearts glad. A few panules will do
