AMERICAN NAVY NOW
SECOND IN WORLD Outranked Only" by Great Britain— Japan in Third Place and France in Fourth. Washington, D. C.—The rapid rise of the United States as a naval pow er during the past two years is graph icaliy demonstrated in figures show ing*the sea strength of the various world powers, compiled by the navy department's office of naval intelli gence. They show that the United States, close pressed by France in 1917,^or its place as third naval pow er, is now second only to Great Brit tain and is at present pushing to com pletion a building program that will make the American navy, for the first time in recent history, a formidable contender for first naval honors. A little more than two years ago the figures show, Germany, then sec ond naval power, boasted more than 100 more ships of all classes than the United States, with a total ton nage exceeding that of the American navy by nearly 200,000 tons. Tîreat Britain's fleet at that time numbered a total of 680 ships aggregating 2, 375,564 tons as compared with Ger many's 262 ships and 1,068,240 tons and thfe United States' 153 ships and 860,017 tons. Today Germany, now in third place among the naval powers, has a "pa per" navy of 450 ships, of all types, totaling 826,637 tons. These figures do not include German vessels sur rendered to the allies or Russia ves sels in the hands of the Germans. Regarded from the standpoint of fight ing efficiency, as distinguished from number of ships and tonnage, Ger many is outclassed by both France and Japan, her navy being composed almost entirely of old and obsolete vessels. The pride of Germany's sea power is surrendered to the allies at Scapa Flow, where many of them were sunk by their officers and crews. Japan, fifth naval power in 1917, has passed France and Germany and now ranks next to the United States in fighting sea strength. The actual standing of the naval powers of the world today from the standpoint of modern fighting strength according to the navy department's figures, is Great Britain, United States, Japan, France, Germany, Russia and Italy. The completion of all vessels now building and projected will add 219 j ships totaling 500.000 tons to the ! British navy as compared with 349 ! ships ar.çl 1.116,389 tons for the United States, 24 ships and 167,200 tons for Germany, according to the most au- ! thentic figures available at the navy ! department. j As a result of the great torpedo ' boat destroyer building program car ried out by the United States dur- ! ing the war the American navy now includes more than 150 destroyers of the fastest and latest type, with nearly 500 mot's building ol' contracted for. «u » * ok „t a' Great Britain owns about 425 of this, type of vessel, many of them old and. of little modern value, and hs«l aWlt HO building o rauthorized. , . . » , , many s destroyer force has been so reduced as to make it a negligible ■factor.

The work of eradication has been carried on dur ing the last two years in cooperation between the Montana experiment sta tion and the U. S. department of ag riculture. The loss during the year 1916 is referred to, because the dis ease is much worse in a normally damp year and in general the years 1917, 1918 and 1919 have been abnor mally dry, so that the loss from rust has been considerably less than would otherwise be the case. In 1916, hun dreds of fields were so completely ruined as to be not worth cutting. Montana is the first state after North Dakota to attack the barberry nuisance vigorously and eliminate it. The rust is a menace in all the states from Michigan to Montana and south to Kansas and the elimination of the barberry is believed to be an effec tive stop to the damage, but most of these states have not completed their eradication of the barberry. Of course, it is not certain that ev ery single specimen of the barberry has been killed in Montana, but every country road and every town street have been gone over in the search for specimens of the plant and any report of rust, on however small a scale will soon point to the remaining plants and the eradication can be made absolutely complete. At pres ent, it is certain that no considerable damage can again come to Montana wheat from this source. A Traveling Man's Experience. You may learn something from the following by W. H. Ireland, a travel ing salesman of Louisville, Ky. "In the summer of 1888 I had a severe at tack of cholera morbus. I gave the hotel porter fifty cents and told him to buy me a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy and to take no substitute. I took a double dose of it according to the directions and went to sleep. At five o 'clock the next morning I was called by my or der and took a train for my next stop ping place, a well man." _ FALLING TREE KILLS A MONTANA FIRE FIGHTER Great Falls, August 19. —William Johnson, aged 44, was killed by a falling burning tree while engaged in fighting a forest fire in the Sun river country this afternoon.
