VOL. XI. NO. 35. FOURTH SERIES SALISBURY, N, C., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18TH, 1915. Wm. H STEWART, ED. AND PBOP*
_ __ , _-— ———— Late War Sews Whit is Doing Across the Sea in the Way of Destroying Men and Properly August 15.“ Ail along the east ern front the Germanic armies, according to Berlin, again are in full swing against the Russians, who everywhere have been driven back or repulsed in attempts at sorties. Little important fighting is in progress except in the east, al though there has be°u a hand to* hand engagement near Bagatelle, France, a resumption of the bom birdment of Belgrade, a counter artillery attacd by the Seri iai s against Semliu and Panscova, and battling on Gallipoli peninsula and in Asiatic Turkey with the Turks claiming the advantage in the former region against the al lies, and the Russians asserting that in the latter zone the Ou mau forces have been defeated. On the Austro-Iialiau front no decided gams for either side are chronicled la the northwest region of Rus sia the Germans are declared to have resumed the offensive and forced the Russians back to the northeast An attempt at a sortie from Kovuo failed. Iu P.'laud a fresh advance northeast of Warsaw between the Narew and the Bug has been made by the Teutons accoidiug to Ber In. Novogeorviesk has beet; more olosely surrounded and ground has been gained all aloug tbs fronts in the southeastern districts say these reports. uonstantinopie reports east attacks of the allies against their right wing near Air Buruu, on Aallipoli Peninsula were put down, and that the Turkish ar tillery shells directed against An aforta plain and Seddu! Bahr forced a retirement of the allies from the former place and de stroyed their bomb-throwing de vices on the latter sector. Fires were started by the shells of the Serbians in their bombard ment of Semlin and Panscova, according to N sh Aug. Id —With military op erations proceeding virtually as for days past, the political side of the war again has risen to the fore w.th announcements that the Quadruple Entente allies have deoided to declare cotton contra band, and that the party of the former Greek Premier, M. Veni zelcs, whose cabinet resigned last If arch when King Constantine disapproved of his policy in favor of the Entente allies, again is in power. For weeks there has been a campaign in Great Britain to put octton on the contraband list and Washington learus authori tatively that Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Belgium have agreed to take that step. She declared the staple as con trabaud will, it is said, be defend ed by the allies as authorized by international law. me newiy elected mreea unam ber of Deputies has chosen for its presiding officer, M. Zivitzancs, &:j adherent of M. Venlzalos, and the cabinet of M. Gounaris has resigned . The meager announce ment of the changed political con ditioue in Greece contains no in timation as to how Veuizelbs now stands with regard to this coun try’s position in the war. The Athens correspondent of a Berlin newspaper assorts, however, that Veuiielos still believes the intoi ests of Greece lie on the side of the Eutente allies but that it is not yet time for her to join them aotively. Petrograd again asserts that the Russians in Gcurland have driven back the Germans, and also re pulsed German counter offensive movements. In Poland, however, the reports of the Teutonia allies indicate that their forces almost everywhere Btilt are advancing. Artillery engagements are the rule generally along the western front aud similar fighting inter parsed at various points with i afctaokg| continues on the Austro lu.vpj front and Gallipoli Peninsula. *VTia claims the Resolutions of Respect Whereas God i n his allwise p'ovideuce has seen fit to take from our midst our esteemed friend and brother, W.

Most of the people on the farms and in the villages and smaller o:ties of the United States obtain their domestio water supplies from underground sources Ground waters are also extensively used throughout the ooountry for live stock, railroad, and other indus trial supplies and for irrigation. The United States Geological Sur vey early reoognized the great importance of the ground waters and the numerous complex prob lems relating to their development for human use. Hence for many years it has carried on investiga tions and surveys of these waters. Much more work has beeu done in certain States than in others but every state has received some attention. In go far as is practicable these reports give, for every locality that is covered, the depths, char acter, and yields of the underly ing water-bearing beds, the height to which the water from each bed will rise iu wells and the prospects of obtaining flows, the quality of the water in eaoh bed for domestic, industrial, or irrigation use, the best meth.ds cf sinking wells, the oost of wells and of pumping, tbe d -pth below which drilling should not be carried, tbe precautions that should be taken to prevent pollution, aud tbe total quantity that can safel/ be pumped. The largest ground water de velopment in late years have been those designed to provide water for irrigation, aud consequently most ot the Geological Survey’s reosut work has been done in the western part of the oountry. Ac cording to the Census report 4,520,000 acres were irrigated in thaAnd aud satm-arid States- in 1909 with well water, more than twc-thirds of wbioh was brought to the surface by pumping. At tbe present time the acreage is considerably larger Most of the irrigation with ground water is done iu California, but further developments are possible in every western State. Moreover, irri gation with ground water is not oonflned to tbe arid regions. The census report shows that in 1909 more than 4 400 wells were pump ed in Louisiana, Texas and Arkan 8&s for the irrigation of 110,000 acres of rice, aud pumping plants for irrigating fruit aud vegetables are installed in several localities in the east. A function of the Geological Survey is to show where further developments of grouud water for irrigation can profitably be made, aud what is ■till more important, to warn homeseekers against settling on and laud and then attempting developments that are nor prac ticable. Very brief reports have been published on eaoh of the States of the Mississippi, and more detailed reports on the Coastal Piain of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and eastern Tennessee, the reports on Alabama, Virginia, and North Carolina being published by the respective State Surveys. Deafness Csnnot be Cured by local applications, as they oau not reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to oure deafness, and tbat is by con stitutional remedies, Deafness is caused by an inflamed oondition of the muoous lining of the Eusta chian Tube. When this tube is inflamed yon have a rambling •oaud or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirily closed, Deaf nesB is the result, and unless the inflamation can be taken out aud this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroy ed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing bat an inflamed oondition oi the mucous surfaces.

Sold by Druggists, 75c. Take Hail's Family Pills for ooustipatiou. Pellagra frail Public Health Announces a Cause and Sug gests a R; dy. Pellagra seems to be on the in crease. This is t'fie not so muoh of North Carolina,perhaps, as else where. A very prol>able answer to the why and wljsrefore of the situation is offered by Joseph Goidberger, Sergeon in oharge of Pellagra investigation for the Uni ted States Public health Service. Dr. Goidberger claims that pel lagra is not oontageous, infeotuous or even communicable, but is due to a faulty diet The trouble with the di8ts of people who develop pellagra, aooording to Surgeon Goidberger, iB that they do not eat enough lean meat, beans, peas, milk and eggs, but sit despropor t onately large amounts of such things as grits, molases, flakes, oora meal, or other starohy foods. As a general rule, aooording to Dr. Goldberger’s findings, pel lagra is particularly a disease of the poor, or where it does strike an individval member of a well-to do family it is one that for some reason has not been eating a well balanced diet. Accordingly the apparent ioorease iu pellagra is due to a more restricted diet ow lug, perhaps, to the recent slight ly depressed financial conditions amoDg oar people. The daily diet reootnmended by Dr. Goldberger for an adult pel lagriau should include a pint aud a half to two pints of milk, at l^ast four eggs aud a half pound of fresh, lean meat, together with a liberal allowance of peas aud beaus These art.oles o f diet should be varied somewhat from time to time to suit the taste of the patient. Very little, if any, medicines are reco-emmended' or are found necessary, in this con nection Dr. Goldberger cites some causes of more or less fraudu lent eo-oaHed pellagra cares that are being heralded as sure cures for pellagra at good, stiff prices, aud what’s more, their patrons a e getting oared. According to Dr. Goldberger, it matters little whether a peraou is given a solu tion of salt aud water, sugar aud water or any other cheap concoc tion at a dollar or two an ounce for so long as the patieut follows the instructions of eatii g liberal ly of suoh things as meat, milk, aggs, beans and peas the chances of his getting well are very strong* ly in his favor, of oourse, he cred its the advertised pellagra remedy with the cure. ----- • •-— Despondency Due to Indigestion. “About three months ago when I was goffering from indigestion which caused headaohe and dizzy spells and made me feel tired aud despondent, I began taking Cham berlain's Tablets,” writes Mrs. (ieo. Hon, Macedou, N, Y. "This medioiue proved to be 6he very thing I needed, a* one day’s treat ment relieved me greatly, I used two bottles of Chamberlain’s Tablets and they rid me of this trouble.” Obtainable everywhere.
