Kenois Upholstering Co. 210 Kenois Bialdiof, Ulh & G Pfcone, M. 2114 Experienced Advertiser* Prefer The S5or First Round of Four Sixteens On at Washington C. C. FIRST PAIR OFF AT 9 A.M. Course Is Unusually Hard, Due to Dry Spell, and Greens Are Lightning Fast. The first round of match play of the annual spring: tournament of the Wash ington Country Club started this morn ing. The course is unusually hard, on account of the prolonged dry spell this spring, and the roll on the balls is something to wonder at. The same ap plies to the greens, which are light ning fast. The participants in the different six teens were early reporting, and the players of the fourth sixteen were first away, the first pair driving off the home tee at 9 o'clock. The pairs of the other groups followed in regular order, and by noon everybody interested had started, the picturesque course being thickly dotted with the players and caddies. Following are the results of the first round of the different sixteens: Qualification Bound Interesting. The qualification round yesterday proved unusually interesting, as three of the District's best players tied for first place in Messrs. Lard, Dalzell and Lee Harban. These players turned in cards calling for 75 strokes, which is only 5 over par for the course. This trio" has clashed many times in matches and it will be interesting to watch the play as they will be thrown together either this afternoon or tomorrow in the second round or semi-finals. Four sixteens were selected from the qualifying group and the first round of match play started this morntug. The semi-finals and finals will be pla>ed tomorrow with the popular handicap.

There is a discussion going on in some of the papers as to whether the dissemination of Bibles is bringing the desired results, it being contended that the people don't read them after they get them. It is contended that Bible reading is a matter of one's rais ins:. of one's environment. Just as a virtuous life is. and hence the way to encourage Bibl* reading is to begin down in the child life, vs here the taste for it may be created. Some years sgo, !>r. Thwlnj? of Cleve land preached n sermon to college boys and girls, in which he made twenty two quotations from Tennyson, relat ing to the "crown of thorn*." "manna in the wilderness." "Mose* striking the rock." "Joshua's moon.' "Jonah's gourd," "Esau's hands." "Ruth among the fields of corn," the "fai* of Lot's wife," "the church on Peter's ro?-k. the "serpent and Eve," the "miracle at the wedding In ('ana of <>alilee," a "Jacob's ladder," etc.. etc. He afterward questioned the class about these references, and found 50 per cent knew nothing about them. Nine boys and eleven girls never heard of the "crown of thorns" Seventy-one of the class of elghty-flve were wholly Ignorant of what became of loot's wife Only twelve out of the thirty-four boys couid tell about Eve and the serpent. The girls were better off in ihis Impor tant knowledge than the boys, for out of fifty-one, thirty-seven could tell the story of the <Jarden of Eden. No doubt sll these students have had the usual experience of Sunday school training, but that doesn't answer. Bible study has less of Intellect than spirit in it. It may be a strange thing to say. but one must feel the truth before he thinks it; faith comes before knowl edge. King Charles' Mace. From the I/*?don Chronic. During the late Lord Peel's tenure of the speakership he was informed that the mace ordered out of the house of commons by Cromwell had been dis covered in Jamaica. On inquiry the in formation proved to be false, but it was found that Jamaica at one time possessed a mace presented by Charles II, which, like the earlier maces used at Westminster, has vanished. In 1?77 Jamaica was overwhelmed by an earth quake, and among many public build ings ingulfed at Port Royal was par liament house. With the wreck disap peared King Charles' mace. At a meeting of the hoard of direc tors of tlie Nasiiville, Chattanooga and St. I^?uis railway recently Asa (J. randier, the Atlanta capitalist, WAS elected a director. War Officially Reported. FRENCH STATEMENT. PARK. May Ti The Germans delivered an attack yes terday at the close of day at Baga telle, in the Argonne. It resulted in a complete failure. On tlie remainder of the front, partic ularly to the north of Ypres and in the region of Vauquois, there have been violent artillery engagements. The German general staff persists in giving false details concerning offensive engagement. During the last fifteen days the enemy has sui fered complete checks and severe The German attack April 22 by two army corps using asphyxiating bombs had as its object the piercing of the Ypres front. The greater por tion of the prisoners captured Ir?J" us were overcome by fumes. >>e suffered no check. The rapidity or our counter attacks prevented the enemy from attaining the left ban* of the Yser canal and from e8Ja*J" llshing a strong position on the rignt bank. In these combats we inflicted hea\ > losses on the enemy. Our actual front was established only two kilo meters (about a mile and a quarter) behind the original front. Our men are now provided with means to Pr^" tect them against similar attacks with asphyxiating bombs. Being unable to pierce our lines anu compel us to give up possession or Ypres, the Germans used a marine gun, firing a distance of thirty-eight kilometers .about twenty-three and one-half miles), on Dunkirk. This gun, which ceased firing after two days, did damage of no military im portance. ? . April 23 the Germans endeavored to retake l<es Eparges with three divi sions. Heavy fighting occurred in The neighborhood of St. Remy and Calonne and on l>es Eparges heights, but Hie Germans were repulsed bj counter attacks. The number of losses was shown by great heaps or bodies. It may be said that the | three divisions were decimated. Important progress has been made b> the allies in the Hois le I'retre. the Hois d'Ailly and the Bois de Mont mare.

The total of the German loss es In the heights of the Meuse, in the Woevre and the Vosges has been more than 35.1100. At no part have they broken through our lines. They have taken no Important position ?from us. They have allowed half a dozen of their finest regiments to be decimated. BRITISH STATEMENT. I.OXDON, May 71 There Is nothing to report on the Brit ish front, except the recapture by us of more of our lost trenches on hill No. ?o, southeast of Ypres. and that fighting still continues in that lo cality. Elsewhere the enemv has shown no disposition to attack. AUSTRIAN STATEMENT. VIENXA, May 7: Forces of the Teuton allies are ad vancing successfully along the entire I front in west Galicia. Troops of the ! enemy, still intact, are attempting, by taking up favorable defensive po sitions, to cover their hasty retreat, i The strong Russian forces in the Bes kid region are being seriously men aced by the flank attack of our vic torious armies. Already we have forced the fighting in the regions of Jaslo and Dukla, and the engage ment now in progress will complete the annihilation of the third Russian army. , . , The number of prisoners in our hands has been increased to more than 50, On the remainder of the front the sit uation remains unchanged. In the Orava valley a strong Russian attack on the hill of Ostry has been repulsed, with great slaughter to the enemy. _ _, At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the last Russian positions on the heights east of the Dunajec and the Biala rivers were gained by our troops. Tarnow was captured by us at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. TURKISH STA^MENT. ?

Botha has occupied the important railway junction of Karibib and other stations (German Southwest Africa). He expects to occupy Windhuk very soon. Large quantities of rolling stock, including seven locomotives, were taken at Karibib. The town was occupied after a forced | march of thirty-five miles over a waterless waste, under conditions of heat, thirst and htinger, which called for the greatest resolution and grit. The English Pub. "An American Observer." In the I/>ndon Morning Poat. For all practical purposes, as far as the public is concerned, an English public house is as truly three, and sometimes even four, different resorts, as though that number of different es tablishments were lined up along the street, one next to the other, each un der a different ownership and each un der a separate license. This is a most formidable fact, wnich seems to have largely escaped the attention which it deserves, as well from the public au thorities as from social students and reformers. The real truth is that if we consider that every licensed house is in fact, on the average, practically three distinct drinking places with an en tirely different clientele in each, we find that the number of places for the sale and consumption of intoxicants far exceeds that given by the usual statis tics. and the proportion of such num ber to population is very much more unfavorable to these islands, as com pared with other countries, than is generally understood. The direct corol lary from the above is that were the partitions or screens separating the different classes of "bars" in the pub lic houses knocked away?if the law required all service for consumption on the premises to be made in one open, undivided room, the number of drink ing resorts would be reduced automat ically to a very great extent. The British nation is. politically, amone the most democratic; in personal habits it is possibly the least so. Here, caste Is king as perhaps nowhere else anion* the white races, and few public houses could hold their present clientele were their customers compelled to mingle to gether as are those resorting to simi lar establishments in other countries. Such a change would force the licensed vender of intoxicants to choose what character he prefers to give to his premises, and what class of trade he would endeavor to purvey to. and his clientele would be confined almost ex clusively to one social class. A Threat to King Cotton? Prom the Chicago Journal. The fiber of the "silk-cotton" tree of the tropical East Indies has been brought Into notice by the war. It is claimed that cloth woven of this fiber is much lighter and stronger than fabrics made of ordi nary cotton, and that it is waterproof as weli. There are reports, likewise, that the tree is quite easy to cultivate. If just half of these stories are true, America will have to look sharp to maintain her pres ent supremacy in supplying the world's chief clothing material. Even if the stories are only 10 per cent true, they should serve as a stimulus and a warning . a warning against idle optimism and a stimulus to research. As a really important clothing material, cotton is not quite as old as the American republic. It superseded older fabrics mainly because of its cheapness; it may be forced to yield its present dominant I position by any competing: substance which has decided advantages in either cost or quality, and which can be pro duced in large enough quantities to satis fy the tremendous modern demand. It would seem the part of wisdom for our vast cotton industry to do a little research work in this line. If the throne of King Cotton is firm, knowledge of that fact would be a cheering and vastly important piece of information. If the king is likely to yield to a successor every effort should be made to see that the new fiber mon arch is domiciled in America. DETECTIVE KLEINDIENST IS PLACED ON TRIAL Police Operative of Fourth Precinct Is Charged With Misconduct as Married Man. Raymond O. Kleindienst, precinct de- | | tective of the fourth precinct, was ; placed on trial today, before Chief Jus tice Covington and a jury in Criminal Division 1, to answer an indictment charging misconduct with Margaret Stout, who was convicted a few days ago of keeping a disorderly house at 1S19 Ontario place. Mr. Kleindienst was found at the house when it was raided April 10 last, and was placed under arrest. .Mr. Kleindienst is said to be married and the indictment is predicated on this assumption. Assistant Ignited States Attorney Hawken made the opening argument to the jury. He declared he expected to prove that the attentions of the ac cused to Margaret Stout had extended over some time, and that his visits to her averaged two or three each week. He told of the raid on the Ontario place house, where, he said, Kleindienst was found. Defendant's Counsel Is Heard. Former Assistant United States At torney Wampler made an opening statement for the defense. He claimed that the testimony would show that Kleindienst. was in the discharge of his official duty. He referred to the case as based on "flimsy suspicion" and said its conclu sion would prove it to be a "tepipest in a teapot." A large portion of the morning ses sion of the court was occupied with the introduction of testimony by the gov ernment to show that Kleindienst ts married. The case probably will take two days for trial. ROYAL ARCANUM FILES DENIAL IN AN AFFIDAVIT Asserts in Reply to Suit It Is a Fra ternal Benefit Society and Not Insurance Company. The Supreme Council of the Royal Arranum this morning filed substituted pleas and affidavits in the suit brought against it by Mrs. Sue B. Behrend, widow of Samuel K. Behrend. At a recent hearing. Justice Stafford was of the opinion that the affidavit of the defendant was not sufficiently full to convince him that the Royal Arcanum was a fraternal beneficial society and not an insurance company. He gave leave to file an amended affidavit, which has heen done This affidavit goes exhaustively into the laws of Massachusetts governing the Royal Arcanum, and the laws of that order passed with intent to com ply with the state laws, and denies that it is an insurance company, but asserts that it is a fraternal benefit society, as it is known in Massachu setts, or a fraternal beneficial associa tion. as known in the District of Co lumbia. Beneficiary Was Changed. The affidavit further states that Mr. Behrend, in 1913, more than a year be fore his death, changed his beneficiary from his wife, with whom he was not living, to his children by his first mar riage, and that this ^yas properly done in accordance with the Arcanum laws. The assertion of the plaintiff that he was not of sound mind when he made this change is negatived. The defendant further states that shortly after Mr. Behrend's death it paid the policy in favor of the children. W. Gwynn Gardiner appears for the plaintiff and Philip Walker for the de fendant.
