A French official "estimate of the German losses in the great battle on the western front has just been received in Washington Tne dispatch follows: After an 11 days' offensive during which the Germans have recklessly pushed forward their attacking waves, one may gath er a fairly ami ate estimate of their losses. 'In the flr-t place it has been possible to identify nearly 100 of their divisions sjnce the begin ning of the offensive, more than 10 of which were twice engaged. Some divisions had to be relieved at the end of the first day, hav ing lost more than half of their men; fuch was the case of the 45th and 88th. The latter has been nearly entirely wiped out. Among those that have suffered the most ore the 5th, 12th, 28th and 107th divisions, as will as the 2nd (Prussian guard), the ICtb, 21st and 20th divisions of reserves. "Iu the second place an enor mous number of corpses were found on the battle giouud, aud the prisoners on being question- e 1 acknowledge the extent of the losses of their respective units. "To conceal from the German people the heavy sacrifices that their offensive methods required, the Germans are sending most of their wounded to Belgium. "It is not an exaggeration to estimate the total of their losses at between 275,000 and 300, 000 men." Owing to the nearness of the next Liberty Loan, the County Commissioners received no bids at par for the road bonds offered for sale Monday. They are re advertising the if 50,000 in de nominations of $1000, $500 and $100. These bonds will be offer ed to the people of the county. A plan will be worked out by which they may be paid for in five instalments! The officials ol the county and the leading citizens of both parties are sign ing an agreement pledging them selves to use all their influence with the next representative to have these bonds freed fromcoun ty taxes. This makes these bonds an attractive investment, and it is the opinion of t hose iu the best position to know that this is our only chance to build any roads rtithiu the next five years. Our Federal Aid, ten thousand dol lars of which is now available is at stake. A recent report from Berlin says German troops have cap ture 1 Moreuil and Anaehiswocd on the west bank of the Avre ri ver. The statement adds that the number of prisoners taken by the Teutons is now 75,000. and makes a splendid report of it Mr. Roberts, representing the National Association Inspectors, inspected a car. of maple here last week, sold by the company for 'shipment to San Francisco, California. The moving up of the clock here will.help the employees get through with their work earlier ani have time for war-garden in?, etc. Especially will this be beneficial to the office boys, as they can get recreation and some outdoor life. The people in this vicinity feel much elated over the action of the Board of Ed ucation in con solidating the Shulls Mills and Foscoe school districts, as this will result in the building of one of the very best schools in the county, and a general revjval along educational lines at this place. This one act-of the Super intendent and Board of Educa tion in Watauga county will for ever anchor him to all who have at heart the building of our sec tion and county. , THE GREAT WAR HAS MADE CIGARETTES A NECESSITY. - "Our boyi must have $xh smoke Send them cigarettes!" This ia a familiar appeal now to all of us. Among those most in demand It the now famous "toasted" cigarette LUCKY STRIKE. Thousands of this favorite brand have been shipped to France. There is something home like and friendly to the boys in the sight of the familiar green packages with the red circle. This homelike, appetizing quality of the LUCKY STRIKE cigarette ia largely due to the fact that the Burley tobacco used in making it has been toasted. "It's toasted" was the "slo gan" that made a great success of LUCKY STRIKE in less than a year. Now the American Tobacco Co. is .making 15 million LUCKY STRIKE Cigarettes a day. A good part of this immense pro duction is making its way across the water to cheer our boys The Red Cross has distributed thousands of LUCKY STRIKE Cigarettes. .Stock-Holders' Meetinf.
