London, Sept. 30. Another series of thrilling reports of recent naval actions against German submarines, illustrative of the manner in which the U-boat menace is being met, was given out tonight' by the Admiralty. ik. The records arc official and authen ticated, but no dates are given. The statement begins by reciting how a torpedo gunboat sighted a, periscope six hundred yards away, I; and turned ship so that the periscope " was traveling in the opposite direc tion' to that in which it was first seen. When at a distance of fifty yards, the periscope disappeared and the gunboat, altering its course, passed over the submarine. The impact of the collision was felt and when the captain estimated that the submarine was under the after part of his ship, explosive charges were dropped astern. A seaplane reported patches of oil on the surface and a mine sweeper found an obstruction on the bottom at this point. A torpedo boat patrolling in the Atlantic found a steamer torpedoed and sinking. The survivors were rescued and then the torpedo boat circled about the locality for more than an hour. Finally a white patch of water was seen dead ahead. Bombs, Dropped- Thc"t8potf0-'boattda3,aed over the spot, grazed the submarine and dropped three submarine bombs. Oil and air bubbles recking of gasoline came to the surface and the mine sweeper found another obstruction here. . I . ( -- CARD INDEX OP ALL AMERICAN" SOLDIERS GERMAN r Washington.

TWO MEN KILLED IN F BATTLE Brothers Fall When Officer's Posse and Band of Miners Exchange Shots. ' Harlan, Ky., Sept. 30. In a mid night battle between members of an officers' posse and a band of men on Agaes Creek, this county, two men early this morning were killed. Eighty shots were exchanged by members of the posse and men who fired on them while 'they were on their way to make arrests on charges growing out of recent coal field dis-. orders. Luther Shipman. one of the dead men.was a member of the United Mine Workers. He was instantly killed. Grant Shipman, his brother, died at a Harlan hospital this morn ing, after being shot through both legs. The firing started, members of the posses say, when the paity bearing warrants for a number of men re cently indicted, reached a wood. It is understood attorneys representing tho strikers claim Luther Shipman was killed after being placed under arrest and that he was not implicat ed in the shooting. Efforts of coal operators to woik their mires under guards is said to have caused the ill feeling to develop. Arthur Stewart, charged with kill ing George Scott, a clerk for the White Stiir Coal Company at With ers yesterday was taken to Pine ville today and lodged in jail. REV. A. D.

Necessitv of making his own livelihood kept him from getting out of the grades in earlv life. He began woik on a farm in 1000 as a steady occupation and contin ued his work there for several years.

We have been here one week and arc get' ting use to camp life. Wo drill from fivo to eight hours per day. Drilling is, by no means, play. It gives such an appetite as we never had. This is shown by tho" way we eat when wo go to the mess hall. We are fed only food that enables us to do hard work. Tho aim of the cooks is to give each man all the food he wants. Nenily every one gets his plate filled twice. Though we are in our present quarters temporarily, wo find every thing very convenient and comforta ble. We aro to. move to our now quarters in a few days, then we will have our own cooks. We havo not received our uniforms yet, but aro expecting them in a few days.

ABUSES PRESIDENT AND IS SENT TO JAIL Virgil Anderson Denounced the Government When Son Left For Camp Taylor. When his son, who was called for service in the national army, left Sat urday, Virgil L.

STATISTICS FPU THREE YEARS Show That Fewer Than Seven In One Hundred Will Be Lost. s War is dangerous. Tho soldier risks his life daily. But nothing is moic ccitain than that the civilian, stay at home population vastly ox aggerates the dangers and the risk3 of war. There have been repeatedly print ed sets of figuies which pui ported to show the peicentage of deaths in the ainiies of tiie allies on the western front. Accoiding to those tables the aveiagp 'ife of an engineer or sap per on the battle front was thirty minutes; aviatois could look forward to only thiity days of Hip after leaching the 1'iont; doctors were kill ed within a week of going into ac tive service; the fmpiession wa.-) plainly com eyed that nobody in any branch of the service could expect to survive more than a few months on the western front. The figures wcie aflse. They were wicked. They increased the fear and suirering of millions of people who had sons or other relatives in the un ifoim c the United Status. If not direct German propaganda, they serve at least unnecessarily to dis coinage and alaim tho fathers and mothers of America. The Truth About Danger. The tiuth abort the dangers and risks of war are told in thin aiticlc, as accurately as tho oificirtl figures will peunit. Canada, for example, during the three years of war has lost by death s-even out of every hundred she had sent to the battle front. In times of peace a certain peicentage of men of inilitaiy age will die. Deducting that peicentage fiom the total, it ap peals that the direct war loss among the tioops of the dominion lias boon a little over (! per cent. It is especially notewoiliiy that this peicentage tends, to grow small er each year of the war. When in the first winter of fighting Canada, sent :;:! 000 practically untrained tioops to the fiont she lost in that single season 2.027 men. Consider how gzeatlv the losses have been re duced to bring the total percentage, for thiee ycais of constant fighting down to 7 per cent, as against 8 per cent for the first few months. Trench Losses Cut. Fiance, with its vast armies of neatly 3.000,000 men, has had a sim ilar experience. During the first year of war it records casualties, of between 5 per cent and G per cent. .Last rear thee losses wpip cut down to 2v'i per cent. For the last six months of 1910 the peicentage of the whole French army killed, miss ing or captured was only 1.28 per cent, about five men out of each 400. These are the official Ficnch figures, made public by the high commission er of the French republic to the United States. They can be depend ed on as accurate. But consider this: Of nil the sol diers wounded in battle the British surgeons and hospitals arc turning out 90 per cent, in such conditions that they can go back to the battle front. About 95 per cent, of tho wounded troops finally recover, and only 5 per cent, of them are pet ma nently disabled. It is remarkable that the percent age of death from disease among the troops of the allied armies is ac tually less than it would 1p among the same number and kind of men in times of peace. In spite of the hardships of trench life, constant living in the open air, together with the enforced physical exercises and the watchful care of skilled physi cians, have reduced the percentage of soldiers dying from disease to lit tlo more than half what it would be in normal days. But mothers and fathers whoso rons Jtnvp gone or are going to war may find somo comfort in the state ment that eight out of every ten of the gny young soldiers who ore now putting on tho uniform will go (Concluded on page 4.) --H-J
