ASSUMES PERSONAL CHARGE OF
Operations in Tills Region Considered
London, Aug. 13.?Field Marshal von
Hindenburg has taken personal command
of the German army attacking
Kovno, and, according to tonight's
German official reuort, has gained new
successes against the Russians. The
selection of Germany's national hero!
for tlje duty of capturing Kovno, whici I
.stands between tJ:e Germans and Vilna !
and the Warsaw-Petrograd railway,
indicates the importance the German
general staff attaches to this opera
News that the civilians had begun
to evacuate Kovno, as well as Vilna,
tad led to the belief in many quarters
that the Russians either had decided
to give them up or had no hope of
folding this point. Now, however,
they are fighting hard to retain both
cities and Petrograd claims the Russians
have repulsed German attacks.
except at one point, where a desperate
artillery engagement is in progress.
Check for von Buelow.
Farther north, between :Ponlewesch
and Dvinsk, wfcere Gen. von Buelow
a week ago was advancing rapidly towards
the railway, the Germans apparently
have suffered a setback, for
<the Russians now speak of pressing
them and declare they have reoccupied
Toviny, considerably west of the
point to which the Germans had penetrated.
Souc'a of Riga also the Germans are
said to be doing little more than holding
their own, so the talked of advance
towards Petrograd seems to be
developing 'very slowly.
On the other Land, the Germans
continue to drive the Russians northeast
and east of Warsaw and, with
the capture of Siedlce, are within a

Gen. Wood, Former Chief of Stan, j
Talks of Supply of Potential
Plattsburg, X. Y., Aug. 14.?The
United States has plenty of material

"Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood said cere
today in a statement on the nation's
preparedness for war. The chief need,
he declared, was officers. He advocated
training college students in their
junior and senior years along the same
lines as now are being used at the mil- j
itary camp of instruction here.
Gen. Wood said the country tas
three sources from which to draw officers
from private life. First of these,
he asserted, were men who had been
in the regular service or militia. Sec-;
ond, f:.e would obtain officers from a!
list of men kept by. the war department
who have qualified by examinations.
The third source would be from
schools or institutions in which some :
military training is given.
For an army of 1,250,000, Gen. Wood j
said, the nation would need 40,000 or- i
iicers. trom tLese, 1,500 should be;
chosen each year for special grades of
the service. These men eventually
would have become the officers for;

While the fastidius angler is waiting

lows hundreds of suckers, their gristly
noses pointed up-stream waiting, as i
the fisherman believes, for his wire
snood. Ttis snood or snare he, with
a skill which many of us need never
hope to attain, passes over the head of

awakened, is drawn up and placed in |

Let the bass fisher turn up his nose
if l;e pleases at his humbler brother,

and usually greater success than the
man with the fine tackle and the artificial

small animals. The common or white
sucker, catosmosus commersonuii,
called also the June sucker, is abun-1
dant all over this country in streams '
and lakes from Canada to Florida and
as far West as Montana. These fish
range in size hereabouts to twelve or
fifteen inches. The great northern
sucker, which is found from the Great
Lakes and the St. Lawrence river far
northward and westward, growth to j
a length of two or two and one-half
feet and weighs many pounds. Utah
Lake, which the natives call "the sucker
pond," is said to be the greatest
habitat in tiie world of this fish.
