During tho Warrcnlon horse show a
number of WashlnKtonlnns were guests
of tho Fauquier Club. Half a dozen of
them sat niouruT a hiiKo table and
sighed dismally. Conveisatlon lan
guished. One sprightly member, In a
moment of misguided sociability, began
tho description of a New Orleans gin
fizz. He caught the ees of four of
thp guests tlxcd upon him with a stare
of Implacable hatred. He turned rod
and became silent.
Finally the host lifted his voice.
"You gentlemen," he said gently,
"seem hi need of a little refreshment."
A chorus of moans afTlrmed his guess.
"With dignity ho arose and beckoned

It was nbt long before ho returned,
tenderly nursing the pump! tho plung

was drawn to the uttermost limit.
Leaning over tho Hist guest's glass, tho

COTTON CROP LESS
THAN 191 4 YIELD
Greatest Falling Off Is Shown in
Producing Centers of Geor
gia and Alabama.
The 1915 cotton crop will be DP.2 per
cent of a normal, or 8 8 per cent less In
quantity than tho yield of last year, ac
cording to the est! i tea Issued today
by the crop reporting board of tho Bu
reau of Crop Estimates of the Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Tho estimated yield on August 25 of
t9.2 Is 0.1 per cent less than the report
ed acreago on July 25, 1915; 1 per cent
less than that reported August 26, 1913,
and 3.6 per cent less than the average
on August 25 of the past ton years.
In only two States are Increases shown
over 1911 In the estimated crops this
year. The Tennessee crop Is estimated
ut K per cent, against 76 per cent In
1914, and an estimated yield of 81 per
cent Is reported for Missouri, against
72 per cent last year.
The greatest falling off In cotton
yield is shown In tho great producing
centers of Georgia, Alabama, Texas,
and Florida, where the estimated 'de
crease Is reported aa 12 per cent In tho
first three States, and 1! per cent In
The report shows a general falling
off over the year 1914, when 209 2 pounds
to tho acre was the average yield. This
was the most abundant yield In the
past ten years, 1911 and 1906 figuring
second and third greatest with an aver
age per aero of 207.7 pounds and 202.5
pounds In tho respective years.
Tho reported yield for this year ex
coeds that of only two years, 1913 and
1909. according to the comparisons con
tained In the crop estimate report.
More Earth Turned in Digging
Them Than in Constructing
Evcrv day of every week for many
months tho papers have been talking
about trenches. "Trench" Is, at present,
the commonest word In the English lan
guage, and from pictures 'and photo
graphs every one Is as familiar with
tho look of trenches as he Is with tho
sound of the word.
For all that. It is not likely that the
nverage man has formed any real Idea
of tba gigantic amount of digging which
has been done uo to date.
The front along which the Germans
and allies face one another, from tho
North Sea to Switzerland, is, roughly,
400 miles long. The opposing lines of the
Russians and the Austro-Germ&ns are
fullv 500 miles In length.
Along these 900 miles of front, each
army has dug Itself In.
But this does not mean that there are
only 1.S0O miles of trenches. Each army.
It must be remembered, has at least
three lines of trenches, one behind the
other, so that If the first' le taken it
has others to fall back upon.
Ono must, therofore, multiply l.Soo by
three, which coftics to 6,400 miles, or a
trench Ion genough to reach from Liver
pool right across the Atlantic ocean and
the whole of tho American continent,
cndlmc up at San Francisco.
This Is without mentioning communi
cating trenches, through which forces
are brought forward In safety to tho
fire trenches. The length of these Is
not easy to estimate, but If you add
another two miles for each mllo of
iroiu, you win certainly bo well on the
This brings the estimate up to 7.2X)
miles, but this Is not yet near the
total. In Belgium the Teutons have
constructed at least another 600 miles
of trenches rendy to oppose the advanco
of the- allies, and no doubt another 200
more on tho Rhine.
The allies havo dug about 300 miles of
trenches In East Anglla to cluck a pos
blble raid, and another 100 miles or so
along the Suez Canal.
Around Cracow, Priemynl, and other
great fortnesses in the east the ground
Is honeycombed for miles. Allow an
other 100 miles for these fortifications,
nnd the totnl reaches 8,500 miles, a dis
tance about equal to tho full breadth
of Europe nnd Asia together.
Tho average trench Is six feet deep,
and five feet wide at the top. Including
traverses and dugouts, you may put It
that two cubic yards of earth havo
been removed for every yard of trench
To cut the Panama Canal took thir
teen years. The wnter Is thirty-one feet
deep and the length of the canal about
ninety miles. Yet the total bulk of soil
moved was only about one-half as
much again as that shifted by the arm
ies that have dug themselves In since
Eastland Disaster Causes Gov
ernment to Establish Rule to
NEW YORK. Aug. 30.-One of the di
rect results of the Eostland disaster
and Its effects on the steamboat Inspec
tion service of the Department of Com
merce Is a new law added to the rules of
tho service making "Inclining tests" of
vessels Imperative when the stability of
any vessel is questioned.
This new departure thus Introduces
into the merchant marine of the United
States a custom that Is almost unknown
here In actual practice although al
ways made by our naval constructors In
the caso of navy ships.
The new rule was received In the
local .office of the stoamboat Inspection
service In the custom house on Au
gust 16. It Is contained In a circular
lottpr addressed to "United States Su
pervising and Local Inspectors. Steam
boat Inspection Service,'' and reads;
When Inspectors have any reason
to question the stability of any es
sel under their Jurisdiction they
shall require the owners of the ves
sel to make Inclining tests on such
vessel under tho supervision of ex
pet t naval architects provided by
tho Department of Commerce.
In practice this wou'd mean that
when one of the New York local In
spectors thought a ship too "cranky"
he would notify Washington of the
matter and then wash his hands of
the rospoiiulhlllt) until the Department
of Commerce saw fit to pro Ida a naval

GREAT AIRSHIP CITY
AT SHEf PSHEAD BAY
Aviation Plant and School Could
Defend Coast When Danger
NEW TORK, Aug. 30.-An aeronaut
ical center that would -develop 'Into s
military camp whenever danger threat
ens this part of the Atlantic seaboard
Is being planned at Shcepshead Bay.
The civil engineer who helped to
build the Ynlo Punchbowl and the
Bheepshcnd Bay Speedway Everett
Thompson has taken up the project.
and has outlined an aero city, In which
will be one of the largest plane manu
facturing plants In the country and a
doublo row of concrete buildings, hous
ing students and Instructors In the fly
ing game, military and civilian ex
perts and many sportsmen and enthu
siasts. Tho military Importanace of th's pro
posed city la emphasized by the Aero
Club, which Is campaigning for a
strong squadron or volunteer and reg
ular army aviators. Sheepshead Bay
Is to Attract many aeronautical enthu
siasts who behove In preparedness. In
a month or so the first flying bouts
will take place on the grounds of the
Shcepshead Bay Speedway Company.
It will be spring, however, before tho
urogram of weekly races. Including
intercity flights and championships,
mail-carrying contests and other aero
features, will be put Into effect.
New Mechanical Devices.
The flrst details of tho proposed aero
colony In Sheepshead Bay were sup
plied by an official of the Aero Club of
America. Concrete buildings , re-enforced
with steel beams and containing many
acres of floor space, are being planned.
When tho long street Is completed It
will remind tho spectator of tho new
factories In Long Island City. The
hangars will bo topped with skylights
and will have many windows, so that
every corner will' be flooded with light.
Besides living quarters for the avia
tors nnd their students there will be
the latest mechanical devices for hand
ling the machines. Turntables, for In
stance, will be Installed, so that 'planes
may be run head first after their flight
Into tho building and wheeled out Inter
for Instant use without the delay that
generally Is caused by turning them
around In the field.
Plattsburp; Camp Disappointing-.
Each of theso buildings, the numocr
of which has not been determined as
yet. will have room enough for the con
struction and assembling of two aero
planes at a time. The hangars are ex
pected to be sixty feet by sixty.
The Piattsburg Instruction camp has
proved dUappolntlng, not to tho army
officers and students, who aro Interested
mostly In Infantry, cavalry, and en
gineering tactics, but to the supporters
und advocates of aeronautics.
Two machines were sent up to the
camp on Champlaln, and competent men
wpre told off to them, but the ground
ivhlch had been allotted to them has
not mot their needs. Space Is limited
and the aviators have feared to cxpeil
ment. The armv officers of the Platts
burg camp. In fact, have advised the
flying men-to discontinue their experi
ments. Sheepshraa Ray, It Is hoped,
will afford aviators tho training w hlch
is necessary before Now York cltv can
be defended adequately In tho air.
