Wwlni-mlay. The (Jtnniins were priXHlni; down on the French right on the Oise and were making headway until tin- French made a terrific swing against tin- 'ierrnan right, knocked it to pieces and took more than one thousand prisoners. There was a considerable stampede on the part of the 'jerinans. The French colonials who bore the brunt of this lighting jvere under the lead of a chief Mho had alread> distinguished himself in tin- lighting at Verdun and I'hemin des Denies. The <ier iianN in the belief that they were masteis of tin- situation, had brought up artillery: but were forced to gallop back with it at breakneck speed. ? Tin* success of tin- Americans in taking chateau Thierry and the woods to the north, was a matter of tremendous tonccrn to the (ierinans. Not only was tin- position imi>ortant: but the moral effect of the success of the American troops o\'er (iermans was bad. In order to overcome tin- situation the (iermans sent in extra divisions until the forces op|s>sed to tin Americans amounted to 60,000 m< n. These men were provided with extra artillery, extra machine guns, flam.- throwers ami gas projectors. Not onlv that, the hest and most cx (h i it iic-?m| (ierman troops?Prussian guards ami Itavarlan*?were carefully r*'h*'iirxi<l in a plan of attack that was to wi|? out must of the Americans and make prisoners of tin- balance.

Army ami navy estimates place the tininhcr of 21-yearold men enlisted at 20H.&S8. This figure comhinetl with the falling off in alien registration gives a total of 853.list!, which incuns that the census bureau apparently missed the number of eligible* by only 13.000. "It is confidently believed that this number will Is- made up by In-lntcd registrations, yt-t to be heard from, including among them the legist rations of the absentees which is accomplished by mail." said n statement issued by I'rovost Marshal (leneral Crowder in giving out figures on the basis of reports to date. The ISilK'Tvgistnition totals by states include: North Carolina, 16.7i3; South Carolina, 10.776: Tennessee, IS,153; Virginia, 15,788. ? DlMuntches from Ixtndon .indicate a itosst'b'fhlV 11 ' lllil "a Hl'rong probabllit.v of an early re-organization of Russian armies against Germany in behalf of Russian liberty. It is a rather peculiar story, but it is being taken quite seriously. It goes like this: At the breaking out of the war, many thousands of Czecho-Slovaks livLng under the dominion of Austria deserted the country ami joined the Russian army on condition that under no circumstances would they be asked to fight their own countrymen who might be conscripted into tht Austrian army. After the collapse ol Russia through the success of the Kolsheviki. with whom these Czechoslovaks hail no sympathy. the Czecho-Slovaks were in a rather embarrassing position in that to go back to Austria would mean that they would be shot as deserters, and they decided to make their way across Siberia with the idea of reaching tluwestern Kuropcan front. The Germans put the Kolsheviki on them, and as the result of considerable fighting in which the Kolsheviki generally got the worst of it. the Czechoslovaks now have control of more than one thousand miles of the transSiberian railroad ami also very strong forces in Valdivostok. The Czechoslovaks are making overtures to the Allies for assistance ami there are indications of plenty of sympathizing sentiment in Russia to give hope of the organization of an army that may sweep things throughout the empire. ? In pursuance of the already adopt ed jiolicy ot tne povernmeni, koii. IVyton K. March, chief of .staff, on last Saturday, pave the newspaper men at Washington the first weekly summary of war conditions. He stated tlint there are now more than S00.000 American soldiers in France, and the number will he increased to a million early in July. This statement indicated an increase of more than 100.000 men in seven days. Cen. March explained how the different (lerman offensives resulted in pains that made necessary the holdinp of new lines. The problem is to pet Americans to the front as rapidly as the (Sermans and to pot a superior number. He explained the four Herman drives of the past few months as havtnp been made with a definite puriiosc?to pet to the channel ports . > -.-a ... IKi-iu t ?,? other hand; hut said it was more important for tho Germans to Ret to the channel ports than it was to 1'aris. Considering the last four German drives as a whole, he said that the drive of March 21 penetrated 26 miles into IMcardy: that of April 6, went some 15 miles into Flanders; that of May 2? went some 3S miles further along the Marne. and that of July 9 went from 51-2 to 6 miles further on. All of these drives have now been stopped; but for the Allies to hold the extended lines requires more men. Gen. March pointed out that the Germans still lack some 20 miles of being as close to Paris as they were in the fall of 1911. and he indicated that the next bis drive would be toward the channel ports. With the capture of the channel |>orts by the Germans, if that happens, the ltritish will have to go a good deal further than they are now going to get their troops to France. ? Three million Americans win t>e under arms by next August, the senntc military committee was told last Saturday by Provost Marshal General Crowder. Extension of the age limits in the army draft will bo necessary. General Crowder said, if the present rate of draft calls is continued. He estimated that all the men in class 1 would be exhausted soon after next January. Gen. Crowder said that 1.347.000 of the 2.438.000 men placed in class 1 already have been called to the colors. He estimated that some 400,000 additional men for the first class will be secured from the men who registered last June 5. and that another 200.000 will be added by the reclassification of men in the re-examination of the questionnaires nowbeing made. Requisitions from the draft to complete the 3.000.000 total by August 1. Gen. Crowder said, have been made. Of these 2.000.000 will be draft registrants and the others volunteers and national guardsmen. "Everybody thinks there will be heavy i calls during the first six months of 1919," was a significant statement J made by Gen. Crowder. Gen. Crowder approved the general principle of 1 th< Mil introduced hy Senator France. t extending the registration ages to from 1* to 4a years, thereby providing additional men ior military ind ' industrial service. ii< <; I not a jl>r< .? th- age limits !..*: ! !.i :* MM Alt' i outlining tin- plans oi the war d'-paitment lor additional calls.

Xtry: hut who tries to shrink out of I he service. We have a letter from the state , council of defense which seeks to discredit the statement recently mad* bv Congressman Stevenson to the cflVci that the hanks had withdrawn their i heretofore liberal isdiey with I'lraid to warehoused cotton. The h tt< r eontains excerpts from a letter from th.* Regional IP-serve hank ai Richmond to the effect that the llep'innstl IJe I serve hank has refused to accept . warehouse certificate collateral in hut a single instance, ami it explains tha? this was a case in which the linn'; presenting the collateral was alr*a*!> i horrow?*d up to the extent of capi'al. . surplus and protlts and over. We are I not going to take issue with the IP - i gional Itcservo hank on a question like this; hut nevertheless We assert < that even if this single case was all the evidence Mr. Stevenson had. which we do not helicve, his state- * ment was warranted. The discredit ing of one hank is equivalent to the i discrediting of all. Hut Mr. Stevenson's statement did not refer to tin Regional Reserve hank at all. and in probably did not know of the ease that has Imen admitted. If pressed, I In- can no douht cite tin* casts of I member hanks which have discottrag- r cd cotton credits in their "original in risdiction." and which eases the IP- ' gional Reserve hank has never heard i of. Rut alsti in this connection. \v< * want to say that in our opinion, tinstate council of defense has gone a * little licyond its province in this mat ter. We tlo not think it had any husiness trying to interfere in the Ills'. I place, ami in the second place, w? ' think that where it does interfere it t should have no douht of its complete ; justification. Senator J. Arthur Ranks of t'al- ; houn county, has entered the race for commissioner of agriculture. The news comes to us somewhat as a stir- ^ prise; hut nevertheless it is a most | agreeable surprise. The surprise is , because we have never thought of this j gentleman in connect ion with the |m> sit ion mid tin* agreoablcncss of it is , liecansr there is nol a better man in , tho state for the place. Mr. Hanks x has represented bis county in the t senate for many years, and he has | l?oon one of the most useful men in that body. He stood shoulder to .. shoulder with John L MeF^iurin from , the beginning in the enactment ol j state warehouse legislation, and lie r alone put through that bill which v was passed at the last session of the legislature to provide for state insur- t anee of warehoused cotton at actual I' cost?that lull which, we believe, the j' governor has not yet signed. Mr. Hanks is a man of very large affairs, t his farming operations involving s many thousands of dollars every year. '' He is a firm believer in the fair deal for everybody, and like Mr. McLaurin. he is especially concerned In relieving the farmer of all burdens that I are not properly his. There is nothing of the demagogue about him? J1 no more than there is about Mr. He- , I-aurin. He Is an original thinker, who n knows what he wants and why. and < he has the courage to do what he Ik>- '' lieves is right In the face of whatever interest and whatever force. If there a is a more earnest, capable and up- f right man in South Carolina than J. ' Arthur Ranks, we do not know who ho is. And there is another thing h that should be said about him. Weal- h hy an-! as prosperous as h* is. and as ] dghly esteemed as he is in his own ounty of Calhoun, no one shoutd cot ht- tii' fi that he is after this office for w, ither the salary or the honor, lie [ s hapable of wanting the office for i ti 1 \ one purpose. He is absolutely itain that he ran Is- of tremendous , nejit to the agricultural interest or Ca ?outh Carolina, as well as to tin- , 'at* as a whole and he stands rea?i> o delicate the balance Oi his useful \y. nd honorable career To thai end.

It is the purpose of tlie writer to exlain the operation of the new system oin a practical standpoint. The operation of the new telephone i very easy and simple from the sub ribers' viewpoint. In order to talk ) any iierson at any telephone, tinilllng party has only to remove the celver trom ine swurn nous aim lace it to Ills oar. this movement olec Icnlly causes a small light to I turn l front of tin1 operator, which Rives er the signal that the calling parti esires to talk.
