CENTER OF INTFEREST
Russlaus and (Germiians in Death-rIp
opt tho Eastern Frontier.
'London, Nov. 19.-Public Interest in
the European war now is centered in
the battle of the Russians and Ger
mans between the Vistula and Warta
Rivers in' Poland. It is believed the
outcome there will have a marked of
feet on the operations elsewhere and
on the duration of the war.
13oth German and Russian head
quarters are very sparing with infor
iation. All that is definitely known
is that the lussian advance guard,
consisting largely of cavarly, which
advanced right onto telh German front
tier after the battle of Warsaw, met
superIor forces and has fallen back
mnore than half the distance covered
in the advance.
"'lhe Germans are sending strong
forces into the country between the
two rivers where the battle inust be
fought, hoping that in this confined
area the Russians will not be able to
deploy their enormous armIes to
akdvantage. The RIussians, however,
nc .v can choose their owl ground for
the battle andI it. I probable they will
select it as far as possible from the
Geri'manl lines of coim iunilca tion.
In Galicia, before Cracow and in
E'ast Prussia, the Russians are push
ing their advantage, apparently dis
regarding the fact that their center
has been comnpelled to fall back. They
also are showing much activity In the
Carpathians to prevent the Austrians
front retiring into Hungary. It is
stated that they already have cut off
800,000 Austrians, who will now be
compelled, if defeated, to retreat west
In Flanders and France the battle
which has been going on for thirty
five days has again developed into
an artillery duel. This doubtless is
duie to inability of the infantry oi
either side to operate successfully ov
er the muddy ground, and to the ex
te'ided flooded area between the coast
and Dixmude. While the Germans art
moving men eastward to oppose thc
Russians they are reporte to be bring

If there are any schools in our
county that doubt the wisdom of so
liciting the help and co-operation of
their women, let me urge you to take
my advice and put your ladies In "har
ness". I say this not because I have
read it in papers, neither because I
have heard others speak favorably of
it, and neither because I have dreamed
"Utopian dreams", but because I have
seen ladies work and have worked
with them. Therefore, I feel safe in
saying that I know every community
has in it loads of unutilized energy
and power, unless it has a School Imln
provement Association. Women can
raise money. But greater still!, they
can raise pupils and teachers out of
the "Slough of Despond."

GOOD SUCCESS IN

I have good success in growing

I make the bed in rich, damp and not

shallowv rows eight inches apart. As
high as 6,000 plants may be secured
from one ounce of seed.
The seeds germinate slowly, often
taking two weeks or more to appear
above ground. If the weather becomes
dry I partially shade the young plants
with strips of thin boards.
Whlen three inches hIgh I clip off the
tops of the leaves to make the plants
stocky. In six weeks I transplant Into
