London, March 9. (Correspond

the Crimean War,, with the slego of
"Sebastopei, the battlo of Inkerma.i

countless other landmarks of the
birth tot Christianity are changing
hands as an Incident of tho present

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

the real site, though it Is' not tlm

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

it has Involved at the samo time tho

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

OF FAMED ALAMO
Is Interesting To Every
' Patriotic Texan.
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
'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
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

tho Toxas republic, or tho Southern
Confederacy nnd Old Glory.

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.
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.

in this section, as Clark Is in the

ever known. Thousands of acres of
tobacco land will be sown in hemp,
