This ia written In Now York
city, by one much interested In
the Chicago Herald and Examiner.
h This paragraph will Interest par
. tieularly newspapermen and ad
i rertlsers who like to know what
'j happens when two newspapers are
combined as the Chicago Herald
. and Examiner were combined re
cently. It Is cheering to receive such a
telegram as the following from
that able young Chicago editor.

C Howey,-
Chicago is going to be the big
gest city in the world, as it is sow
the most furiously energetic and
rapidly growing city. But it ii
several million away from New
York city. It is pleasing for those
interested in the Chicago Herald
and Examiner to be able to" an
nounce a circulation, almost as big
as that of the biggest morning
newspaper in the city of New
York. If the morning newspapers
of New York city will wait a lit
tle while, it will ive the Chicago
'Herald and Examiner much pleas
ure to show how a -morning news
- paper can run ahead with a first
class staff of Chicago men.
' The German Socialist news
paper, Vorwaerts, says no one can
dispute that "in the first months
Of the fifth year of the war tho
people are experiencing heavy sor
rows." The Vorwaerts might add that
they are also experiencing, in the
language of the far West, what
they "good and well de
serve," and no more.
This applies especially to So
cial Democrats that were all for
war and full of love for the
Kaiser, but suddenly got cold
feet when they realized that the
. allies, AND AMERICA, can and.
if necessary, will keep the world
going ioi many years to come. ,
Everything ii appropriate and
cheerful in e -war just now. For
instance, English and American
sailors off the east coast of Eng
land were i?ging:
"Oh, happy band of pilgrims,
Look upward to the skies."
And as they sang, some flyers
brought down a huge Prussian
Zeppelin in flames not a man of
the crew surviving.
It will soon -be time for another
St Gaudens to make a monument
to another lot of colored troops of
the United States.
St. Gaudens made a magnificent
statue xt, heroic young Shaw, the
white man, leading his colored
troops against slavery,
Another American officer, also
named Shaw, offers something to
tho sculptor, something rather
hard to show In marble or bronze.
The FreceiMrar department de
clares that every member of a col
ored regiment Is entitled to the war
cross for courage shewn in their
first fighting under fire.
The white officer. Lieutenant
Shaw, was looking after his guns,
giving Instructions, taking them to
pieces and reassembling them
again, under fire so heavy that If
he had stood upright he would not
have lived five minutes.
He went from one gun to the
other, rolling over and over on the
ground and comes out of it alive.
When you see your colored fel
low cltiien in or out of uniform
please remember that no matter
what you may think, the white
Prussian across the line has a
pretty high opinion of him.
A dispatch from Zurich says the
great German headquarters has
been removed to German soil east
of the Rhine "because of the ac
tivity of allied airmen,"
The German great headquarters
will go further back than that
when the flying machines and fly
ing fighters from this country get
. to work. For their headquarters
will also be east of the River
In spite of incompetency and
worse in the beginning, the ma
chines will be made, and fighting
Americans will fly them.
President Wilson has long since
taken this matter into his own
hands. He picked out the biggest
, Republican, Hughes, to investi
gatethat there might be no
question of favoritism.
When the American air fleet
really begins work the German
great headquarters will need a
hole in the ground. It may come
a, little late, but American flying
machines will settle and end this
war unless the revolution in
Austria hurries up, or the Ger
man peop' come to their senses.
Their newspapers, especially tM
Socialist brand, begin to ask for
sympathy. But if a man follows
a wolf and shares in the wolf mur
ders and blood drinking, he must
expect to be hunted as a wolf.

The mystery of the Soroerstad sink
ing. In which the torpedo performed
queer antics, passing under the vessel

Officials scouted the theory of wire
lets control and attribute It to a de

LOUISVILLE. Xy, Aug. 14.
The Loulsvllla Courier-Journal,
one of the strongest newspapers
of the South, apparently has an
swered the oft-repeated statement
that the South objects to the term
"Yankees" applied to United
States soldiers.
In letters an Inch.hlgb. the Cour-rler-Journal
prints the word
"Yanks" and uses the term with
out stint In Its news columns.
Oen. Peyton March, chief of
staff, today appealed for the elim
ination of the word "Sammy" with
respect to American troops. Bay
lor that If there Is one thing the
United States soldiers didn't like
It's to be called "Sammy." He said
the British and French can't un
derstand why such vigorous men
should be given such an append
age. The British have discarded
It In favor of "Yanks." March
ROCKVILLE. Aug. L Mr. Johanna
Roth, of Washington, was awarded
verdict of 149,000 In her suit for PUOBO
against Mrs. Juanlta Frank, of Olen
Echo. The case went lo the Jury at

Attorney John A Garrett, counsel
for Mrs. Roth. asked the Jury to
brlnfr In a verlct for $50,000, assert
ing the market value or certain siock
Mrs. Roth claimed Mrs. Frank gut
from her by ".cunning, trickery, and
fraud" has that market value at this
time. The original value of the stock
was $41,000. With Interest accrued,
the principal and Interest to date
would be $49,000. He asked 11.000 for
the mental anguish and suffering of
the plaintiff.
The Jurjrs verdict awards a sum

gotten the stock and disposing of It,
but she claimed It was given to her by
Mrs. Roth to safeguard certain valu
ables she had placed In the home of
the plaintiff.
The two women lived together for

of herself by Attorney Garrett with
a smile on her face and after he had
completed bis summing-up to the
Jury she passed a peach to him. Mr.
Garrett accepted It with thanks and
ate It In her presence.
The defendant had a bag of the
fruit with her, and while awaiting
the return of the Jury she passed
peaches around to others present, ap
parently unconcerned as to the ulti
mate verdict.
"I'm satisfied." she said, when asked
what she thought of the verdict.
Further than that she would make
no other comment.
