AMERICAN NAVY NOW
SECOND IN WORLD
Outranked Only" by Great Britain—
Japan in Third Place and France
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
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 !
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

WHEAT RUST MENACE
ELIMINATED IN STATE
Bozeman, Montana, August 20.—
Wheat rust which caused in Montana
an estimated loss of nearly three mil
lion bushels in 1916 is believed to
have been practically eleminated from
the state through the extermination
of the barberry which has been dem
instrated to be the source of this dis
ease in this climate. 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." _
