Herc IB the evidence of the fact that women have lind to go Into thc munitions factories ot Great Britain to make shells for the army. Tho call of Mluister of -Munitions Lloyd-George has not been answered sufficiently to keep tlieao women out of this trying and laborious work. Thc photograph was taken Just outside a factory where there are hundreds of women at work. Without thom thc soldiers of Gen. French In the field would have to retiro before tho Germans aa they havo done orten ; in tho past bc? cause-they had no proper ammunition with which to fight.

Returning to the United States, willi a contract for $8:;,uuo,000 of war supplies for the Russian government. Wilson NV. Butler, vice president um! contracting engineer of the Cana dian Stool companies. Limited, and tho Canadian Car & Poundary com pany, Limited, said he had told the British authorities that their con tract with J. P. Morgan & company of N'cw York for tho purchase of war supplies, was un Jun t. "I went to England," said Mr Hul ler "to appear before the Hoolii committee, which is to devise means of defense in co-operation with thc war office. "Tlie Hritish war office wants to import skilled labor from Canada and other colonies. 1 got VU ry sore over lt. I said to the committee: Wc don't seo why you want to take our labor away. I consider this desire to import Canadian labor an outrage. "".Ve Canadian manufacturera arc Indignant that Morgan & Co., nav? not given us any of these onie ru I personality have eight factories that aro idle. "Lloyd Gcorgo ls up against the stiffest proposition of his-life, and if ho wants to get tho best possible re sults from Canada ho could do no better than appoint Mr. Thomas Shaugnessy as his agent. Every body in Canuda bas complete con fidence in Sir Thomas. "Ho was purchasing agent boforc ho became president of thc Canadian Pacific Railroad, and as such was thc most efficient man in Canada. If Canada ls properly handled she can produce shells on an infinitely great er scale than the Hritish government ts a waft of. . "Tlie great demand ls for an explo sive shell. Shrapnel can't tear up a concrete-backed trench, an explosive shell can. The whole trouble with the ammunitions question over there ls the red tape of the British war office." Roumania and Munitions. (Detroit Free Press.) Thc failure of Roumania to Join tho cause of the allies when Italy entered the war. naturally caused a great deal of disappointment !~ ih3 capitals of the members of the quad ruple entente, and corresponding^ Joy In Berlin and Vienna. It ls generally given out that th? hesitancy ai Bucharest ls the result of a failure to cet acceptable terms, notably from. Russia. Berlin hints that tlie Rou manian government is playing off the entente and the dual alliance against one another, in order to get ae much ap possible for its services. There may be a good deal in this, or there me y not. News from the Balkan peninsula is very fragmentary and untrustworthy, which possibly explains why one Important feature of the situation has not been dis cussed in the dispatches. This is the question of munitions. Is Dancania prepared to go Into the war? It ts truo Roumania bas one of tbe fine army organisations of Europe "and that at the outbreak of the conflict it was presumed to be fully prepared for a desperate fight. But a year of actual engagement has shown the governments of tho world 'hat pre paredness Is a much more weighty matter than had beef, supposed and several nations -which thought them selves very well equipped have been bard put to lt to keep, the field. Th.? much ls known, Roumania has l*rgo munitions orders with concerns In tho United States. And, owing to tho condition at tile Dardanelles, it is un able to ?9t delivery, lt caa expect no help from Russian because Russia needs all thu supplies it can obtain. Bonmanla may have ammunition for homo protection in an emergency, or for an ordinary war, but If it en gages Austria and Germany It will undertake no ordinary war and com mon prudence may be inducing the government at Bucharest to hold off until lt ia tolerably ?uro that 1t will bo able to carry through anything tc begins. Tho forc'nv of the Dar danelles probably wonld bring both Foumarts and Bulgaria to a more receptive frame of mind toward the allied cause. SWINDLER WILL il BE PROSECUTED HEBE MATTER IS LEFT WITH THE DALLAS CHIEF OF POLICE WILL GO FREE Unless Dalles Chief Has McKenzie Prosecuted There Will be no Case Against Him. I J. Cleveland McKenzie, tue vonni; man who waa arrested io Dallas, Texas, for trying to swindle people in this- city out of money by posing as the' Kev. .Milton O. Alexander, may go free. It ls left with Cue Dal las chief whether he is prosecuted or not and ve.-y likely he will be turned loose. There lias been much speculation as to whether it is within the Juris diction of the South Carolina courts to have tho case prosecuted and it was thought for a time that lt would be up to the federal courts. Mr. William J. Thurmond. United States district attorney, at Bdgofield, bas in formed thc local authorities that thc oi?ens,. was against the state law and to have thc party extradited. Since '.here is differe nce lu opin ion of whether state courts have pow er in thc case, it hus been decided to let the matter drop and the chler of police in Dallas bas been so in structed as far as the Anderson peo ple arc concerned. Farmers und Automobiles. Take thu 10 States of Ute middle west known as the grain bolt: lill I nols, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wis consin, Missouri, Kansas, South Da kota, North Dakota and Oklahoma. [Four years ago these 10 States owned 1130,000 automobiles; the proportion of farm machines was perhaps one in 10. Thc number of motor cars in these lu States has quadrupled in the last three years, and more than doubled in ibu InBt two ycari', so that on January 1, 1915, by ligures furnished by thc va rious sccrctatrics of state, the number I of cars was 550,730. Of this immense total full one-half belong to farmers. [Thc number in thc 10 iStatos is in creasing at thc rate of 13.000 machines a month. 425 a duy. The average lvalue of tiicso machines' was $980. Farm and raeside. Ho Fault With the Henry. No thinking man can lind fault with , tho theory that tho man who farms ought to make b"n own food supplies.
