CHAPTER XXXII - A HORRIBLE PLAN

'phone rang, and nearly startled them out of their wooden stolidness. The man himself looked slightly puzzled as he went over to the instrument and picked up the receiver. He clearly was not expecting a call just now.
" Oh, it's you, Wilhelm ! What in Heaven's name is the matter ? " he cried in angry tones.
At the mention of the Kaiser's name the other six men stood rigidly to attention-as if their Emperor himself had been in the room.
" You're anxious ? " queried the man at the 'phone. " But why? Everything is going well. The ultimatum expires at midnight.-You will be at war with France and in a day or two you will be in Paris! . You are what ? . . . Oh, I see. You are doubtful about the plan we discussed at my castle last week? ... But it's absolutely fool proof !-Why not take the short cut ? . . . England be damned! "
There was a pause at this moment, while he listened to a long tirade from the other end. It was obvious the Emperor feared something or other. ...
" I tell you America no more cares for Belgium's neutrality than she wants to come into the war. Besides, there is public opinion. You must strike first -and your blow must be drastic. You have a clear field.-Go right through Belgium-you can be in Paris the day after to-morrow ! "
But if these men could only have seen into his mind they would have seen something else there. He knew why he wanted to force the Emperor to invade Belgium. England must come into the war at any costand this was the only way it could be done. Why ! only that very day there had been a secret meeting of the British Cabinet, and word had been sent promising support to France if Belgium's frontiers were crossed by German troops. But unless something were done to force the issue, England still would remain
