THEIIt COXTUOIi IS SIUFTISO London, March 9. (Correspond ence of the .Associated Press. Tha care of the Holy Places brought on the Crimean War,, with the slego of "Sebastopei, the battlo of Inkerma.i and tho Charge of the Light Bri gade, juat'as tho care of these Holy Places, so called, had before that convulsed all Europe with the three Crusades, and yet Uio care of theso samo Holy Places the Holy Soiml cher a. Jerusalem, the jplaco of tho Nativity at Bethlehem, and the countless other landmarks of the birth tot Christianity are changing hands as an Incident of tho present war, and almost imperceptibly be cause of the noise of tho conflict Sin so many other theaters of warfare. One report Is 'iltat a military shooting range hat been sdt up on Mount Calvalry, the site above all others venerated "by the Christian world as the place of tho crucifixion. But Inquiry establishes that If this rifle range exists It is at tho Oorrdon Calvary, so calleC, after Gen. Gor don, of Khartum fame, who flo3ig nated it as what ho believed to be the real site, though it Is' not tlm 'Calvary commcrfly accepted by tra dition, venerateil -and guarded by Pilgrims and the Church, anu con tended for by European nations. 'This Gordon Calvnry is In the out skirts of Jerusalem, some "distance from the traditional site of the Holy Sepulcher. From a military standpoint, all attention to 'tho German-Turkish mllltnrv oneratlons in Syria has bpen absorbed in the slow approach southward toward Egypt arid tho , Suez Canal, that rich prize supposed to be the lino between Europe and the Orient. "But while this main irillltary object has been going on, it has Involved at the samo time tho steady occupation of tho entire Holy Land as part of the field df prepara tion and advance, with military forces in control of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, "Nazareth and "through out the region of tho Holy Places, and the French, Italian, English and other custodians of these -feltes, ex pelled or interned. Seven of the Italian custodians a Bethlehem the site of the Nativity -have re cently been interned by the military authorities, and their place "Is to bo taken by Austrian custodians. Tho sweep or this German-Turkish movement through the H6ly Land Is shown 'by the fact that tho military railway, on which the ap proach to Egypt depends, Is believed to be constructed to tho desert out skirts of BeoMhuba. This Is tho same town referred to In holy writ, and which created tho Biblical phrase "from Dan to Beersheba," as it is the uttermost limit of tho Holy 'Land, where It merges Into the des ert leading to Egypt.

FIERCE FI6HTIN6IN THE FORT Has Been Preserved In Legend By Battle Cry "Remem ber the Alamo." DAVY CROCKETT TOOK A PART When tho massacre of tho Alamo occurred on March G, 1S3C, there was a cry for vengeance over the en tire country. Hardly an American in Texas nblo to bear cims but who presented himself to avenge this crime. "Remember the Alamo" was the battle cry when Sam Houston and his largely augmented army went out to meet tho Mexicans. Sam Houston, of Tennessee, had served with Gen. Jackson In the In dian wars. He had gone to Texas with the distinct object of wresting that country from Mexico. Revolu tionary convulsions In Mexico gave the American colonists welcome op portunities for complaints, which led to collisions with tho- Mexican au thorities. Gen. Santa Anna who, by n suc cessful revolutionary stroke, had put himself at the head of tho Mex ican government, attempted to re duce the unruly Americans to obe dience, 'in 1835 armed conflicts took placo In which tho Americans frequently liad the advantage. Tho Texans declared their Independence from Mexico on March 2, 1836. The declaration was signed by about six ty men, among whom there "Were 'only two of Mexican nationality. "Meantime Santa Anna advanced at the head of a Mexican army, en tered Texas and on February 23 laid siege to the Alamo fort at San An tonio. Atrocious butchery marked thu progress of his soldiery. The Mexican general mado frequent as snults upon the fort to route the de fenders. The small handful of Americans, however, iere able to withstand the siege for eleven days. They were starving, but In spite of this they were able to Inflict death upon abont 1,600 of tho enemy. When the siege was at its height, Davy Crockett, with about thirty frontiersmen, cut his way through the Mexican forces and, rushing Into the fort, shouted, "Boys, we're hero to die with you!" Finally the day came when the little band could withstand the assault no longer. It was the memorable Cth of March. It was a hand-to-hand struggle, but each American before lie gave up his life made the enemy pay an awful toll. 'Col. James Bowie was ono of the bravest of tho Americans, and when his body was discovered it lay in tho center of a circle of slain Mexicans, Mad with rage at the Alamo trag edy, Sam Houston gathered the set tlers together. He showed an unu sual amount of strategy. 'Knowing that his band of followers would not bo able to compete with the Mexi cans, ho retreated in order to scat ter tho pursuing Mexican force until San Jacinto was reached. At San Jacinto tho Americans charged the Mexican force, which was much superior In number, but throughout the roar of cannonading nnd tho rattle of musketry, that wild yell, "Remember the Alamo," could be constantly heard above tho din. It stirred tho patriots and made them fight like demons. In barely twenty minutes after tho first onslaught tho Moxlcans wcro flying in every direction with Hous ton and his men following them. Houston had his horse shot from under him and a bullet had smashed his own ankle. This made no Im pression upon him, for ho paused not for a moment until the entire Mexican force was destroyed. The Mexican loss was 1,300 killed and captured, and among tho latter was Santa Anna. It was the battlo of San Jacinto that secured for Texas her inde pendence and for his valor Sam Houston received as his pay tho honor of being the first Presldont of tho new republic, which was later to become tho largest State In tho Union. It was through Houston's infiuonco that ten years later Toxas became a member of the United Stafes with the result, tho Mexican war. Texas, by tho way, has boon under no lea than six flags those of France, of Spain, of Mexico, of tho Toxas republic, or tho Southern Confederacy nnd Old Glory. KnnsuH Holds Auto Record.

THE Ii..Y ANCESTORS OF OUR MODERN FOWLS Tho Jungle fowl, from which all our modern breeds of chickens havo originated, laid from twelve to fif teen eggs a year when In Its wild and nnturnl state. With years of selection, wo have succeeded In de veloping from this low-producing fowl a typo of bird tho chief func tion of which Is egg production. Our present-day Leghorns, and carefully selected fowls of several other breeds, lay closo to 300 eggs annu ally, nnd In the course of a life-time niure than a tliou-uind. An average 1 en of tho egg type breed will lr. in a year's time fho times her body weight In eggs. Tak ing the standard weight of eggs as 24 ounces per doren, this means an egg every three days during the year. To accomplish tills the hen must consume nearly thirty tlnres her body weight in feed. The hen also has a market value when she Is no longer an egg produc er. Comparing the total marketable products returned for 100 pounds of digestible matter consumed, the l'fn ranks s-econd only to the cow am., l.-r all our common farm animals. Groundhog SattMie. Mr. E. J. Thlsler, a prominent res ident of Harrodsburg, recently got after one of his country friends to bring him some sausace. He solicit ed him pretty strongly, and finally tho farmer consented. When the meat nrrived in town the queer col or and tasto of the sausage was no ticed, but the family thought noth ing of It. The entire amount was soon cooked and eaten. Seeing hia friend a few days later he thanked him cordially and complimented the especially nice flavor of the article, but almost fell dead when informed that It was groundhog sausage. Harrodsburg Democrat. Highest Price Ecr Knnun. The last bushel of hemp seed to be had in Clark county, and perhaps in this section, as Clark Is in the center of the hemp-growing section of the State, was sold last week at $12 per bushel, the highest prlco, ever known. Thousands of acres of tobacco land will be sown in hemp, and dealers are offering as high as $8.50 per hundred for the 191G crop. David S. Gay, of Winchester, one of thp largest hemp dealers of the nation, has purchased several several hundred acres of the 191G crop at this figure: Danville Mes senger. Tropcr Treatment For RilloiisneHi.
