DIRIGIBLES DESTROYED A CAMP
First Time in History of World Where
They Were Successfully Used
Home. The first successful use of
the dirigible as a weapon of offensive
warfare took place a. Azisiah in Tri
poli when two of the new dirigibles
circled over the camp and dropped
thirty bombs, completely destroying
the enemy's position.
Dirigibles had previously been
used for reconnoitering and a few
bombs had been dropped, but this
was the first instance in the history
of the world where they were used at
length as war machines and kept at
the task until an entire camp had
been wiped out.
No particulars of the loss of life
have been received other than the
statement by the Italian military
commander that it was "very heavy."
The Turks tried to utilize their field
pieces to destroy the dirigibles with
shrapnel, but they could not get
enough elevation, and the explosives

FOOD PRICES TO GO STILL HIGHER
An Expert Says That Meat, Eggs and
Butler Will Reach Unheard
New York. N. Y. The next twelve
months will see new records in high
prices for meats, eggs and butter. Is
the belief of H. L. Preston, editor of
a trade paper. The cold season has
put the hens far behind in their work,
the expert says, and the supply of
butter in eight Is not likely to balance
with the-public demand.
The price of potatoes would go to
$8 a barrel, he added, if it were not
for Irish and Belgian importations.
The cabbage crop is short and cab
bage, like artichokes, are becoming
luxuries. Poultry Is the one product,
he says, which has not risen In price
by leaps and bounds.
