; Describes German Methods
of Poisoning Wells and
Planting Contact Mines
(Correspondence of Associated Press.)
Cape Town, July 15.—The alleged
methods of the Germans in poisoning
the water supply when forced to re
treat In South Africa are thus de
scribed in a dispatch from a British
officer at Aus, German Southwest Af
"All the wells and boreholes at Aus
had been damaged and the water
spoiled by putting large quantities of
creosote in it. In the wells they put
the creosote in a tin, which had a
small hole In the top through which
a piece of cord passed. The tin was
wired to the bottom of the well, and
this of course insured a continual pol
lution for a good while if the tin was
not removed.
"As it happened, some of the wells
were soon emptied and the tins thus
discovered, so we soon had sweet wa
ter to drink, but for three of four
days all our drinks, tea, coffee and
even milk, were flavored with a strong
carbolic bouquet. We had to put up
with it, though It was far from palat
The same writer describes the dan-1
ger from land mines left behind by the
retreating Germans: "Plateaus and
mountain side were soon found to be
sprinkled with contact mines, very
cleverly burled or concealed toy rocks
and gravel. Generally we drove mules
or cattle over the suspected ground
ahead of us. Only two of the mines
at Aus did any particular damage on
exploding. They killed four mules
and one horse and wounded an officer.
Ninety-five of the mines have been
dug up by the engineers, but villagers
say that the Germans planted over
four hundred, so there are possibly
many more yet to be discovered. We
move about in the outskirts circum
spectly, like cats, and take care to
avoid places suitable for mines."

London. July 15.—Soldiers are to
be sent from the training camps to
help British farmers with their har
vests wherever there is a shortage of
labor. The farmers must house and
feed the soldiers, and pay them 65
cents a day which will be used to de
fray traveling expenses.
The Texas Bureau of Geology and
the Rock Island Railway Company
both announce that the discovery of
potash in the salt beds of the Pan
! handle country is of sufficient prom
ise to warrant the hope that the great
American supply of this important
fertilizer has at last been found. Fur
ther Investigations will be made at
once. It is possible, even probable,
! that the potash deposits may extend
j to the salt fields of Xew Mexico and
] Arizona. —Farm Life.
JULY 15, 1915.
Here is the evidence of the fact that women have had to go into the
munitions factories of Great Britain to make shells for the army. The call
of Minister of Munitions Lloyd-George has not been answered sufficiently to
keep these women out of this trying anrl laborious work. The photograph
was taken just outside a factory where there are hundreds of women at
work. "Without them the soldiers of General French in the field would have
to retire before the Germans as they have done often in the past because
they had no proper ammunition with which to fight.
Embroidery Older
Than Oil Painting
Greeks Pnld Fnbulotis Prices For Fine
Pieces of Needlework
Embroidery Is older than oil-paint
ing, and has been employed In more
royal and sacred uses than any other
art. It was at a high state of excel
lence quite fifteen hundred years be
fore the Christian era, and was one of
the Mosaic practices In the embellish
ment of their tabernacles. It was abun
dantly used in the service of the
church and for the heraldry during the
Middle Ages of English history, and
among the Orientals it was the high
est expression of handicraft in the
early stages civilization among the
Greeks. Sidonians and
In later days embroideries com
manded fabulous prices in Athens and
Greece during the patrlcan age of
culture and adornment, but it was
equally known in its highest phases
of beautiful expression among the
Peruvians at the time of the conquest
by the Spaniards.
To-day beautifully executed embroid
eries will bring to the skilled worker
prices that take the breath away. There
nas been no time In civilization, anci
ent or modern, when beautifully ex-
Eressed needlework designs in the em
roidery of stylish modes would fetch
higher prices than to-day. We live in
an age of prosperity, money, luxury
and a desire for ornate decorative art
that combines utility with beauty.

by which any woman can make gar
ments. napory or articles of home
decoration are provided by this paper

An eastern sportsman who is fond
of rowing and fishing but who lives
at some distance from the water, has
devised a convenient method of trans
porting a boat with him on his cross
country excursions with a motorcycle,
as is attractively shown In the cover
design of Popular Mechanics Maga
zine. Attached to the machine is a
sidecar which enables him to carry a
passenger, while a light two-wheeled
trailer Is used for carrying a boat.
This Is attached to the machine by
means of a simple coupling which al
lows It to take the turns easily and
also prevents it from ramming the
motorcycle when the brakes are ap
plied. All the provisions and equip
ment necessary for a short camping
junket are carried in the boat, leav

On the toe of the northwest slope
of Ancon Hill, overlooking Balboa.,
the first permanent town of the Zone,
the administration building, in which
are concentrated the various depart
mental offices of the Panama Canal,
has been erectecf. It is a low, broad
structure, drawn after the plan of the
architecture of the Italian Renaissance
period and surrounded on all sides by
wide concrete terraces flanked by
heavy balustrades and broken, at the
front, by longitudinal panels of lawn.
In order to compress the building
and at the same time provide for ade
quate light and ventilation, it was de
signed in the form of the letter "E."
It is three stories in height, and, un
like other structures erected in the
Zone, has a sub-basement. Both its
front and the outer wings are lined 1
by a colonnade of square Italian mar
ble columns which support the pro
jected third-story wall and the eaves.

From the results of tests conducted
at the Texas Agricultural Experiment
Station it has apparently been found
that flour made from cottonseed Is
a valuable food for general consump
tion. This is a new product which is
being manufactured in the South and
offered as an inexpensive substitute
for meat. It is remarkably high in
protein, which is the nutrient, or flesh
producing, substance in meat, and is
readily digested by the gastric juices.
It is also said to be quite palatable and
satisfying.—From the June Popular
