Half guessed and gone again." And now that our own deatroyera hare Joined those of our allies It la more than likely that much dramatic history, which will have Its own deep Interest for us, will soon be rapidly written on or about tha watera of the North Sea and those of the Eng lish Channel. Tha following story Is an adven ture of a submarine "somewhere In salt water." The vessel, which was at sea, picked up the smoke of enemy vessels on the horizon at 9 o'clock and at once headed for them. When (be bad approached to a suitable dis tance the submarine dived and, by mesne of her periscope, soon was able to see that the enemy vessels com prised a squadron of ten ships of the line and torpedo boata. To prevent the enemy seeing the periscope the commander of the aubmarlne decided to steer to the port aide of the squad ron, where he would be between the enemy and the light. Deeldea on Frontal Attack. At the aame time, knowing the enemy torpedo boata train special ex plosive contrivances for the destruc tion of submarines, the commander decided to make a frontal attack on the squadron and ateered a corre sponding course. Keeping ber peri scope above water, the submarine approached the torpedo boat leading the right column and passed at Its port side at a distance of between forty-five and sixty yards, atlU keep ing her periscope six Inches above water. The torpedo boat either did not perceive the submarine or per ceived ber too late, for It stood on Its course. Wishing to operate outside the Una of torpedo boats, the submarine drew to the left, under the prow of the second torpedo boat, and in order to avoid a collision sank to a depth of fifty feet. At this depth the crew of the submarine dlstlnctlly beard the noise made by tha acrewa of the war- .ki. A. it.nth nf thlrtv five feet' ?"" ? .r:".

The commander ordered the sub marine to dive, but before the ves sel could submerge there came a terrible crash, tha submarine reeling from tha shock until she had been forced on her beam ends and In that position she was held aa the long keel of the warship scraped along ber side. The collision broke every elec tric bulb, plunging the submarine in utter darkness, and as the vessel went over on her side the crew were burled from their feet and dashed against the side with a violence that stunned many Into unconsciousness. Cleared At Last. The keel of the battleship at last scraped clear of the submarine and the stricken vessel alowly righted. Then the commander, groping in the blackness for his diving gear, Degan to submerge the vessel to a greater depth. Suddenly came a loud explos ion, -one that caused the commander to suppose that the shell of the sub marine, having been damaged by the collision, could not stand the pres sure of the water and was collapsing. He therefore rose to sixty feet, but the sound of the approaching .screw of a large vessel compelled him to dive again to depth of eighty feet. Repeated attempts to rise were In vain, because each time the subma rlne rose to fifty feet they heard the screws of the battleships and torpe do boats of the enemy squadron, which had broken line and were cruis ing backward and forward search Ins; for the submarine. It was found thst the perlcope had been wreck! and It was dlcovered that the submarine was taking in water so fast as to lose her buoyant y. To blow out the supplementary tank would ineltablv disclose her pres ence, but there was no other resource and the order was given Fortunate ly for the submarine the darkness and the much churning of the water by propellers hid the uprush of air and Its bubbles, anu toward midnight the eubmerslble roe to the surface, ex- pedo tactics, until the vessels back Into port the next morning When the civilian volunteers went on their batlleshlp cruise Lieut.

A flotilla of destroyers was dispatch ed from the Atlantic coast to the rhll ippines via San Juan, the Azores, the Mediterranean, the Suez canal, Indian Ocean, and the West Indies. It so happened that on one of these destroy ers the commanding officer was a man weighing 230 pounds. His two assist ants, both then ensigns, each weighed well over 200 pounds. Out of a half dozen chief petty officers three of them were heavyweights, and In the rest of the crew were two others of the ssme avoirdupois. Upon arrival In the Philippines the weather was hot and sultry, the sun keeping the steel decks of the vessel warm, adding another torment to the lot of these Qod fearing men. Thje ves sel's original allowance Hat had In cluded one electric fan, so the com mandlng officer aubmltted a requisi tion requesting that a fan be furnish ed for the wardroom and one in each compartment In which the crew were quartered, a total of five fans. The request In due time reached Washington and some three months later waa returned disapproved, as the bureau did not wish to add any unnecessary weight to the essel for fear of reducing Its speed. Nothing daunted, the commanding officer re turned the requisition with a state ment thereon of the welghta of him self, his two commissioned assistants and other members of the crew and re quested that one of these heavy weights be transferred and that a man weighing about ISO pounds be sent in his place. The fana were forthcoming and nobody was transfer red. Since that time electric fans are one of the few comforta found on destroyers. New Tork Herald. Reprisals Just.

By MARGARET MASOJf. This season of 1917 is the season of the belting reign. Belts cer tainly reign supreme as the fad of the moment, and the shops and waist lines of the fair are simply flooded with them, provided, of course, that they are beaded. For a belt without a these daya Is as flat draught of malted brew is without the same. Some of the beaded belts are flat flat anyway These are th long, flat girdles elaborately and sollSy beaded, seventeen gayly colored designs, with fringed ends of beads that are worn with the loose, straight lined chemise gowns. These are suggestive of and. Indeed, many are fashioned by Indians South, Central, and our own North American tribes. Indian rope girdles of beada with beaded tassellated ends are aiso popular. For wear outside of the new loose silk coats and wraps are the oriental and royal girdles of metal links, al ternating with large beads, disks or squares of Imitation Jade, crysophrase and lapis lazuli, or with cameos, Chi nese coins or Jet nail heads.

The thought of reprisals against Germany Is in the air, not only among Englishmen but Americans who are resident on this side. The recent alleged German offi cial murder of Mrs Katrlna Couch, wife of the Rev. Jamea Couch, former pastor of a Christian church in St. Franclsville, III., who wrote anti German letters to American friends, stirs again the American feeling against the Kaiser's government that .originated with the torpedoing of the Lueltanla, the Sussex, and the Gui- ftight. When recently the Germans torped oed a British hospital ship full of wounded British the Government told Germany If another torpedoing took place sure reprisals would follow. Soon another hospital ship was tor pedoed, and aa a result an Anglo French air raid followed on Frei burg. I The Archbishop of Canterbury and many other bishops protested to the House of Iords. Lord Mllner and Lord Curzon defended the reprisal air raids and an almost bitter contro versy ensued Demands Reprisals. America will surely be confronted with similar situations, so Hall Calne, the famous novelist, writes In the fol lowing sensational argument de manding reprlsala as the only way of curbing German frlghtfulness: "The evidence la great that there Is serious confusion of mind because of much recent writing on both sides and even In the House of Lords speeches on tha subject of reprlsala in war. "The central argument of th. Arch bishop of Canterbury and fellow churchmen and othera In that, how ever cowardly. Inhuman, unchristian the enemy's acts equally cowardly. Inhuman, and unchristian are our acts of retalltatlon. "But duea that follow? Consider the parallel In civil law In relation to crime. The murderer'a act Is phys Ically undlstlngulshable from the law punishing the murderer The act be ing the same, tha difference lies In the motives Inspiring the deed, but the moral difference completely trans figures the act and In the eyea of civilized Christian men Justifies civil law. Difference In Motives. "The argument against reprisals seems to confuse the objects of attack and retaliation. The former may originate in evil passions only, such as greed and revenge and In the de sire for conquest, while the latter, however tragic In consequence, may originate In the purest Impulses of humanity. "Here, again, consider the position of civil law. Why does the law hang the murderer? For loss of life? To strike a bajance betwei. drad and living? To compel the criminal to render the equivalent of hla uwn life for the life destroyed? Indeed, no! All such efforts would be Illogical, in equitable, unprofitable, futile. "The laws kill the murderers so that men may not be murdered. In like manner the object of reprisal In war la to restrain the enemy from offenses which in our view are cow ardly. Inhuman, and unchristian. Greed, lust, revenge, desire of con quest are not inspiring motlvea of re prlaal, therefore the moral respons! bllltles are not the same In reply aa in attack. It will be argued that after the criminal committed the mur der and escaped Justice w-e do not think It right to seek to kill his wife and his children.

The number of messages is now double what it was a year ago.. The volume of incoming messages to Washington is increasing in the same way. . It has been possible to handle this increase only by large additions to our operating force, a practical doubling of the capacity of our toll and long distance switchboards, and the pro vision of many additional wires between Washington and other cities. Still further additions' to the toll and long distance facilities are being provided, the most important single feature being the laying of additional cables between Washington and New York at an estimate cost of one and a half million dollars. While the average daily volume of out-of-town messages is rapidly increasing, the fluctuations in the traffic from day to day and hour to hour are becoming more marked than ever before. This accounts, in large measure, for our inability to complete long distance calls in the usual time on some especially busy days. Every resource of this Company and of the whole Bell System is being called upon in furnishing a prompt and effective long distance service between Washington and other cities. Your co-operation in the use of the service will help make it most effective. The Chesapeake and Potomac . Telephone Company . J IN 3k
