GERMAN PEOPLE NOW,
THINK THEIR SIDE RIGHT
Were Misled as to Cause of
War, and Are Still Misled —
Believed (’oalition A g ai n s t
Brussels, February 19. —Max-
imilian Harden, editor of Die
Zukunft, of Berdin, in an inter
view in Le Soil- ,of Brussels, de
clares that the German people
were misled as to the cause of
the war. They believed at the
outbreak that Germany was in
th" right and even believe now
that right was on their side.
Fmperor William, Harden de
clared, was drawn into the war
against his own wishes, but
once hostilities began it was he
who kept alive national hatred
and was responsible for the
methods of warfare for which
the world would never forgive
Gcinans Did Not Know.
“Our people,” said Harden,
“did not know and do not now
know. They loyally believed
that right was on their side. If
they had not ,they would not
have fought and suffered as
they did. They believed in a
coalition against Germany.
They did not understand that
Great Britain, France and Rus

protect themselves against the
adverse designs of the kaiser.
‘‘They did not understand tha
the violation of Belgium was a
crime which turned the enlight
ened universe against Griuanv.
They are stlli certain that if
Germany had not invaded Bel
gium, Great Britain and
France were ready to do so.
Personally, 1 do not think
France ever thought of such a
thing, and if she had Great
Britain would not have permit
‘‘But it was an old idea of the
kaiser's. In one of his out
bursts he once said to Leopold

When the interviewer pointed
out to Harden that no protests
against Germany's methods ev
er were raised in Germany,
Harden declared that even now
not only the actors in the trag

who have lost a brother or hus
band in the war desire to cling
to the belief that they have suf

TOP DRESSING TALKS
We Strongly advise a spring top dressing of ARCADIAN Sul
phate of Ammonia for your winter grain. Apply 100 pounds
per acre. .
Put it on with the fertilizer attachment of your grain drill. But
this does not mean that the hoes or disc3 should rip up the soil
and damage the growing plants. Far from it. Just raise the hoe3
or discs so they do not touch the earth, or if this cuts off the feed,
remove them altogether.
Spread it by hand if desired. Nothing works as easily as
