IRRIGATION IN WEST
Desert of Ten Years Ago Now Blossoms Like the Green Bay Tree BRINGING IN WATER BY RIVER 240 MILES Russians and Japanese Best Beet * Growers—Thousands of Stacks of Alfalfa Now in Fields in Eastern Colorado By f\ M. STANLEY Manzanola, Col.,' September l.—(Spe cial.)— Irrigation if* wonderfully impressive to the man who has never witnessed the 'operations of that system of farming. | It is developed to its highest efficiency fin this portion of the Arkansas river valley. Water has been so plentiful this year that everything is flourishing except from •ome damage done to various crops by the grasshopper and to some of the canta loupe fields by rust, the rust being caused. 'According to general belief, by too much water. One of the main irrigation ditches from the Arkansas river runs through the heart of this town, so that It nearly always lhas plenty of water for Its crops, though 1 Rocky Ford, a few miles further down the river, has wrhat is known as a “first water right.” This means that Rocky Ford can take water out of the river as long as there is a drop available. In years when water is scarcer this is an invalu able asset to Rocky Ford. Bring Water 24 Miles Ordway, 18 miles away from here, also gAts its water from the Arkansas river. Ordway has the added advantage of own ing Twin Ijfikes, which are 240 miles away, up in the Rockies near the source of the Arkansas river. When water gets scarce Ordway turns water from her lakes into the Arkansas river and It flows down 240 miles, where she Is allowed to divert It from the river Into her main irrigation canal. She is not allowed, how ever. to take out more than 90 per cent of the amount she turns into the river. From the main canal lateral ditches run Into various farming sections and from these laterals still smaller ditches carry the water to the crops. Water gates f?uage the amount each farmer can take out and the time of day he shall get bis water and inspectors rigidly enforce rthe rules to see that no man get.4* more £han his share. Water Distribution by Gravity Most of the irrigation water moves by gravitation but there are exceptions, not ably in this town of Manzanola. A big water wheel which looks like the paddle wheel of a big stern-wheeler steamboat, extends across the main irrigation canal. The current of the water turns the wheel and large cups on the end of each paddle elevate the water about 12 feet and pour it into a smaller lateral ditch at the high er elevation. The Arkansas is a fickle river and it seems a pity that the tremendous volume of water which comes down from the mountains during the spring freshets can not be conserved for use during the sum mer. when the river sometimes gets so low that it is little more than knee deep and scarcely 10 feet wide. Since I was here 12 years ago the river bas completely changed its course and Is probably a quarter of a mile further from this town than it was at that time. ^The bridge over the river a few years •**& .now stands high and dry and of no j wrhile a new one has been construct ed across the present channel. Random Rates Hundreds of Russians, Japanese and W exicans are employed on the farms in this valley. Russians and Japanese are said to be best at raising sugar beets. Much of the work lias to be done on hands and knees in the field and native Americans will not do It. Negroes have been repeatedly tried at this kind of work but will not stick. There are few of them in the valley. Birmingham figures in a popular joke In tills section on the Ford automobile. Jt is credited to a negro coming from Birmingham to Pueblo and has been re peated to me nearly a dozen times al ready. Bees do well here and good prices for honey are expected this year because su gar is advancing so rapidly. Only about 400 hives can be placed in a single bee yard because this number of •bees gathers all the available honey with tn their range. Electric power by high tension trans mission from Pueblo covers this whole valley section. Alfalfa mills which mangle the hay and grind it Into a fibrous meal for stock feed do a big business. Thousands of tons, however, are baled each season and shipped in this form. Children Cry FOR FLETCHER’S CASTO R I A SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES •f BELMONT COLLEGE (aJtTyesr) WARD SEMINARY (00th year).

Hooper, 4(11# tiulnlau Avenue, Birmingham SOME FRESH STORIES OF EUROPE’S GREAT WAR The Turcos At Charleroi The New York Sun's Paris corre spondent cabled fiom London; Stories of the remarkable work ,ol the Chasseurs d'Afrique in their attack on the Kaiser’s Prussian guard con tinue. A wounded officer who served with the Turcos of Charleroi and whe arrived here today said: "We were attacked by lon.oon of thi enemy. We were their inferiors ir numbers, but in valor greatly theii superiors. Throughout the entire tinu that tiie terrible fight lasted my men were absolutely unshaken. Sometime? we had the advantage and at others wc had to faH hack hurriedly. Twice wc entered Charleroi and fwice we had tc abandon the town, the suburbs of which were occupied by enormous contin gents of Germans. The moment ar rived when it became necessary to settle the question. “‘Give them the Turcos!’ shouted our colonel. Then the avalanche began. It was a mad rush. Fifteen hundred meters away were the men of the Prus sian guards, extended over a. front of one kilometer. Suddenly from the borders of a little wood which masked mitrailleuse companies there broke a fusillade of bullets which mowed down our ranks, but the Turcos and couavefi to the strains of the “Marseillaise,” swept steadily forward. “When they arrived within a few meters of the Prussian guards the machine gun filing ceased and the Turcos began an awful bayonet en counter. The men were fighting like furies, using the butt ends of their rifles and shooting right and left with their revolvers. “My men hurled themselves on the Germans before them. The columns of Wilhelm Jl were nothing but little children. They fell like flies and their blood flowed like fountains on all sides. The poor fellows lost their heads, threw their arms away and fled. “Nei^Charleroi our enemies installed a battery of machine guns in the belfry of a church. They then hoisted a white flag and the Red Cross ensign. Our troops, suspecting nothing, reached the vicinity of the church and then the Herman bandits began to turn the handles of their machine guns and pour death into us. That is how they make war." li_i _a a %«_ London Cable to the New York Sun. Writing to his brother in England, Sergeant Loftus tells of his experiences at Mon8. He says: “It came unexpectedly at a time when we had given up any hope of seeing the Germans. Just after re veille our cavalry pickets fell back( re porting the approach of the enemy In force. “As we lay in the trenches our ar tillery opened on them In fine style and soon they returned the compliment. They were a long time finding the range. After about half an hour their infantry came into view. They were in solid squares, standing out sharply against the sky line. You could not help hitting them. “We lay in our trenches without a sound and they crept nearer and nearer. Then our officers gave the word, a sheet of flame flickered along the trenches, and a stream of bullets tore through the advancing mass. The}' seemed to stagger like drunken men, suddenly hit between the eyes, and then made a run at us. Halfway across the open another volley tore through their ranks. “Uy this time our artillery began dropping shells among fliem, and then they broke into open formation, rush ing like mad toward the trenches. On our loft the Germans fell back in con fusion and lay down wherever cover was available. We gave them no rest and soon they were again in flight. Rush Follows Rush “Then came more furious shelling of our trenches and another mad rush across the open on our front. This time they were strongly supported by cav alry who suffered terribly, but came right up to our lines. “We received them In the good old way, the front ranks with tHe bayonet, ami the rear ranks keeping up an inces sant fire, and after a hard tussel they retired hastily. Just as they thought themselves safe our mounted men swooped down on them, cutting right and left. •‘This sort of thing went on through the whole day without bringing the Germans any nearer to shifting 11s. “After the last attack, we lay down to sleep in our clothes, but before sun rise were told to abandon our posi tion. Nobody knew why we had to, but we obeyed without a murmur. The enemy’s cavalry, evidently misunder standing our action, came down on us again I11 force, hut our men behaved very well, and the Germans gave it up as a had job.” The Daily Mail said editorially this morning: “The concentration of the Germans in immense strength to crush the small British force is now an established fact. The result of the fighting which followed this concentration is not yet fully known. The latest report only brings events/to Wednesday, on which (late our two army corps were engaged by no fewer than five German corps and two cavalry di visions. These were stupendous odds as each individual German corps is stronger than a British corps. Fight At Odds 3 to 1 “Odds of three to one can only be with stood by the superlative valor which the British have Shown and good fortune, which no human courage can guarantee. Reinforcements are essential and in abun dant numbers, as it is evident that the strength of the German armleR has been markedly undefestlniated. The Germans are known to have called on every avail able man, and Germany is now believed to have thrown a very large part of her enormous forces in Belgium into northern France. “The Indian troops who have been sent to France will not go very far. The whole energy of the British race must be employed. The nation must arm and pi-cpare on a colossal scale and send every man and gun that can be spared here and now to the decisive point in France.” German Methods Defended London Cable to Cleveland Plain Dealer. Hilaire Belloc, graduate of Oxford uni versity. an officer for many years in the French artillery and now a university professor, and most famous military critic in Europe, writes: "The operations of an invading army in a hostile country are invariably at tended by more or less wanton destruc tion and slaughter, because the frenzy and passions of the populace incite dread ful retaliation. One recalls at the time, told of Sherman’s march from Atlanta to the sea. with its frightful destruction of property to break the resistance of the south and end the civil war; on Sheridan’s cavalry raid through the Shenandoah val ley, <»f which Sheridan himself afterward is reported to have said: ^ "if a crow flies over this valley now he will have to carry his own . subsis tence." The American soldiers were never, in deed, accused of slaving women, children or other noncombatants, but the delib erate destruction of towns and sources of subsistence sometimes was unavoid able. That’s what Sherman meant when he said: "War is hell." Colonel Belloc writes in Land and Water: Strictly speaking, all operations of war depend for their success upon the moral effect. Excepting that operation by which a hostile force is completely surrounded and may be exterminated, in every case you obtain your success over your enemy o** the survivors among your enemy by reducing them to a condition of mind in which their opposition is inef fective. Action Calculated "Now that is what we see in the pres ent campaign. The Kaiser's commanders have carefully estimated and Intend to ap ply this factor of moral effect apart from direct action. I do not say their estimate is just, hut I do say their action here is calculated. "Thus by marching through Brussels, the. German commanders added a full day’s fatigue and a full day’s delay to the great body of their troops. Among the 350,000 soldiers shown there was one entire fresh army corps. The p6puta.ee of Brussels gazed upon men in spick, span uniforms marching in the goose parade step. "This was not a piece of empty the atricallsm. The undefeated Belgian army had only just been withdrawn toward Ant werp. The populace was certain to carry stories of the German numbers, weight apd condition. "Jts effect was calculated beforehand. That effect has been in part attained. "No one reading the papers last Thurs day can doubt that the German parade through Brussels did in some degree, per haps .less than the German commanders hope, affect the spirit of their opponents. "It is exactly the same with the much graver policy of torture and murder. The German troops have direct orders from their superiors to clear any object before them and break the resistance on the part of the civilian population, even though such resistance consists only of women, elderly men and children. "Since their elderly men, women and children have no organization, the terror inspired by the fate of a few individuals overwhelms all the rest, convincing them of the hopelessness of resistance. "I do not say this is wise of the Ger mans. Personally, I think it is handi capping them politically and probably will later on in a military way, but the poinf to remember is these actions are ealeu* lated actions. "Utter fear and nonresistance on the part of the entire population of civilians in southern Belgium, and now in France in the last few days, encouraged the Ger man commanders to bellieve these meth ods have a military value. They will be pursued in France, and should a force land in England the same methods will follow. Ransoming ot towns “The same rule applies to ransoming of towns. It Is not the town which is ter rorized, but the financial power of the enemy. This is much more cowardly than the enemies’ hearts. Take the $50, 000,000 levied on Belgian towns this wek. England and France have immediately granted this sum to Belgium as a loan, which means that Germany, by her suc cessful occupation of Belgium, has al ready fined her principal opponents $50, 000,000 and has inspired in the minds of those putting cosmopolitan finance above human life the dread of further loss “Germany knows how powerful these men are. Finally’. Germany Is certainly counting on the moral effect of the occu pation of the seacoast. There is nothing to prevent small detached bodies of Ger man armies, specially strong in cavalry, from occupying Ostend, Dunkirk, Calais and Boulogne, nothing except a decisive battle adverse to the German army. “If the Germans are successful in the long battle on the. northern frontier of France, they will certainly occupy ports In the Straits of Dover. Relying as we do upon our fleet, we can tell ourselves all sorts of consoling things concerning such occupations. “Nevertheless, the presence of German troops on the further side of the. ^traits of Dover would profoundly affect the state of mind of the allies.” Speaking of the Russian advance against Germany from the east and north, Belloc says: “The only decisive success thus far ob tained is the battle of Gumbinnen, 25 miles from the frontier. Russian mobili zation provides three successive relays upon the enemy. Germany’s best troops were sent against the French frontier. The Russians have taken Tilsit and Koe nigsberg, besides capturing a number of field guns. “Polish East Prussia Is now dominated by Russian forces, but the reader must not assume that the Russian advance will continue like the successful invading army in the west. “No prediction can be made of the time the Russians will get to Posen. 150 miles from Berlin, until the Vistula river is successfully crossed. The roads arc very bad. Weeks of rain turn them into a morass. There is no adequate railway system and the transportation of supplies Is extremely’ slow’ and difficult. “By the time the Russians reach the line of the Vistula Austrian pressure from the south may become s*rious. When this river Is passed the Invaders will find themselves In territory much easier because it is now certain the Polish population will favor the Russian ad vance. “The racial relations underlying this in vasion are exceedingly important, but there are yet several weeks of time neces sary before the Russian advance can get far enough westward to compel the Ger mans to withdraw tlielr forces from the French frontier to prevent the Russian advance on Berlin.” G.

BY GERMAN PEOPLE Americans Reaching Rotter dam From War Zone Tell of Conditions ABUSE AND DANGER DUE TO EXCITEMENT Emperor Took Care to See Foreigners Protected and Especial Con sideration Was Given Americans Rotterdam, August 21.—(Correspond ence of the Associated Press.)—Amer icans who found themselves In Ger many during the first few days of the European war Were In nowise mo lested, and the German government took every step to protect them. This Is the suhHtaYice of statements made here by Americans returning from Germany. Several instances of abuse and per sonal danger were recorded, however, but in every case the excitement inci dent to the declaration of war, mobili zation and resulting high spirit of the people were responsible. Then. too. the few cases recited to the Associated Press correspondent occurred in out of the way places, and persons touring the empire in automobiles were the princi pal sufferers. German villagers unab’e to distinguish t7ie American from the English, stoned travelers, threatened them and molested them iVi hotels, hut as soon as it had been made clear that the victims of their wrath were Amer icans the most complete apologies were offered. In most cases the offenders were immediately arrested and sum marily punished. “On August r, the German Emperor himself is said to have issued a decree according to which the burgomasters all over the empire were to be held personally responsible for all barm be falling foreigners, especially Amer icans. There is every reason to be lieve from the accounts told by Amer ican refugees, that the Germans went out of their way to take care of the visitors from the United States. It must be said, however, that they were subjected to the severe military rules so suddenly applied and that those without passports were in some cases detained until identification had been accomplished. But even this necessary process was never attended with the usual brusqueness of the German of ficial. Americans by the score maintain that they had never though German officials could be as polite as they showed themselves. Americans in cities had not diffi culties of any sort. They were warned to keep off the streets after sundown because t lie lower classes, it was feared, might mistake them for Eng lish. But after a few days this was no longer necessary, and while the Americans had been told, in most cases politely requested, to leave Germany at their first opportunity, no pressure for their departure was applied. Up to about August 5 it was diffi cult to obtain money in Germany on American paper of any sort. It was soon renllzed, however, that all American drafts, notes and letters of credit ol standing were good and alter that if was a comparatively easy matter to si cure money. Many banks limited the dally allowance of Americans to about $20. I’ersons who found it impossible to realize on paper in their possession 1 MA\/// fhlHl .AU were given credit by the hotel and hoarding house proprietors. Those who were-caught while en route wero given accommodations in most cases on the promise that they would mall the amount of the bill from the United States. Rooms for Americans The Bristol hotel at Berlin, for In stance, turned 150 rooms over to Amer icans absolutely free of charge, and those who failed to get rooms at ho tels were taken in by families. Similar reports were made by Americans from other parts of the empire. The cities in which Americans were especially well treated are Berlin, Munich. Frank ford-on-Main, Cologne, Hamburg, Dres den, Leipzig, Magdaburg. The many health resorts and virtually ever other Place where familiarity with American and Knglish touvists made distinction net ween them possible. Many Americans here assert that the KiigUsh tourists In Germany had 11+He cause for complaint. A party of them stranded at Cologne was put up free of charge by a prominent hotel there. Women and males not of military age Here permitted to pass over the Hol land border without trouble, though examination of them was not carried °n with the consideration shown tour ists from the United States. Much baggage of Americans had to he abandoned. Much of the rolling stock of the railways was in the hands of the military and needed for the transportation of troops. For this rea son little baggage could be carried on trains. It has been learned, however, the responsible German express firms look charge of the baggage and that all of it, if properly labeled, can be re covered easily. The American refugees at Rotter dam were unanimous in their praise of the Germans'and the closest canvass by the Associated Press# correspondent showed not a singte instance In what an American had a complaint to make. Only one Instance was brought to his attention, that of a naturalized native of German Lorraine. The man had been home for a visit when war was de clared and was drafted to serve In the Landsturm. for which his age made him liable. After working for two days at trench digging he was discharged, the excuse of the officials being that they had believed the man’s naturali zation papers were spurious. Most prominent American travelers in Ger many were given a sort of "laissez partier,” or passport, which, in most cases, exempted them even from hav ing their baggage inspected.
