H FRANCE!- FRENCH SCHOOLMA'AM IS ONE OF WAR'S REAL HEROINES American Coal Minsrs Needed in. Irance BY WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS. (Unitel Prsns Staff Correspondent.) WITH THE. BRITISH ARMIES IX THE FIKL1". July 25 my Mail) Sootier or lute- I .ens, capital of France s "Black Country" or coal Wit. wilt fall before the -vr-tightening prvssure put upon it by Sir Douglas 1-1 When this day come? America car. render France and h'-r allies no gr.-ater servke than to send immediately to this region the experts necessary to put the coal mines in order m the shortest possible I line. For three years France has been de prled of the richest; coal deposits she possesses. In the Laire, Burgundy. Nivernais. Gard. Blanzy, d'Aubin, Be cazcville and Carmaux, it is true there are coal mines but these are not to oe compared w;th those in the northern part of the country, around Lens. This deposit runs from east to west, from Belgium to Flechinelk-. in France and since the German occupation it is only the extreme western 'end of it which he French have been able to work. And This is the hardest to work, being deep below tne surface. Whereas in Belgium the coal is practically on top of the. ground at Anzm it is 120 down and deeper the further west it runs. At Pouai it is 4S0 feet deep, at Flechinelle i about 1.S00 feet. The vein of coal "from the Belgium frontier to Fleshmelle is about sixty-rive Orpheum Dancing Academy I.lrt STATE STREKTi HAMMOND.

Prior to the war of the 39,000,000 of tons ex tracted from French soil, three-fifths j came from here, or about 23,O"O.O0O tons, t OYtrn w;in mi;., r riliu e nil? iiiwii) m-in compelled to buy from jho. outside, al most as much coal again as she produc ed, half of which came from Belgium from the country oround Jlons, Char- -roi and Liege, seized by' Germany as her very nrst act of war. It is this country, around Lens and behind Lens to the east, which the Prussian warlords are defending re gardless of the cost in German lives. And here it is that British pressure is growing ever stronger. Every blow struck ,this summer has j ieldi d a net gra n in the direction of those coal fields and a retirement anywhere from Arras to the seal would be more injurious to Geriii.iny from sn economical point oi iew than at any other patt of the west ern front. Fighting in this country is extremely difficult. On the sea where British Tommies have recently made their ap pearance, there are sand dunes which make trenches almost impossible. Fight ing 'here is like fighting in the heart of j the Sahara desert. Further south along the line is water, water everywhere, srread out over the flat country. Every body knows what the country about j Ypres is like, and around Messines Ridge, while below that comes LaBaasee and Lens, with their mountains of slag and cinders, called "Crasslers" rising nearly 200 feet over the level country around about; and the "fosses" or mines, with mining buildings cluttered about them, all affording the best possible ob stacles from the defenders' viewpoint, hiding field guns, howitzers and espec ially machine gunes. Such is the country over which the British are now fighting. If the Ger mans are beaten back out of the coal country they will do as they have done already at Lens: Destroy- the mines by blowing them up or flooding them, or both. Rut American miners are said to be the best to be had and certainly the United States can do no better than to send hundreds of them over here to re claim the ruins, for even cf the Prus- i" s-v - iif-- i..

SCATENAS PLAY BLUE ISLAND The Scatenas will play the strong Blue Island Federals Sunday afternoon LADY'S OVERALLS. By Anabel Worthington. The great war is responsible for many changed conditions in the lives of women, and as a consequence the fashions in women's clothe must be modified to a ctrtnin extent in order to conform to the new order. One of the most sensible gar ments which iave ever been designed for women is the overall, one version of "which is shown in No. 8,401. Of course it is far more graceful, and pretty than the corresponding garment for men, and in addition it is thoroughly practical and comfortable. The housewife will appre ciate at a g'.ance its superiority over cumbersome skirts for housework, snch os hanging curtains, &c. The pair shown has separate trousers buttoned to the waist in Empire style. The sleeves may be long or short. The garment is easy to put on, as it opens ail the way down the front " The pattern is ent in sizes 26 and 40 Inches bust measnre. The 36 inch sue requires i yards of 36 inch material.

When a Physician Prescribes Whiskey you should have in mind the true medicinal whiskey Duffy's. Be cause every day experience proves that a good stimulant like Duffy's properly used will accomplish much to keep the old young and the young strong and vigorous. Phy sicians of wide repute advocate the moderate use of alcoholic stimu lants because, "in disease whiskey is a rapid and trustworthy restora tive. Tn manv cases it mav be truly described as life saving, owing to its power to sustain cardiac and nervous energy, while protecting the wasting nitrogenous tissues." Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey taken in tablespoonful doses before meals and on retiring as directed, stimulates the mucou3 surfaces of the stomach and activates the natural digestive juices so that full nutriment from the food eaten is assimilater? into the blood. The body thus given its full proportion of nourishment is assured abundant strength. "Get Duffy's and Keep Well Sold in SEALED BOTTLES ONLY.

Members of this board say that when all of the men have been ex amined they will be listed, and when ever a call comes for more men for the army all that will be necessary will be for the board to notify a suf ficient number to report for service. The remainder will be held as reserves until they are needed. There has been talk of this kind for several days, but.it is only in the last day or two that the tip seems to have taken hold.

You Can care for her during the husband's ab sence the husband should not be ex empted. And in many cases the boards are holding that a soldier can send home to his wife a sufficient part of his pay to maintain her while he is gone. The district appeal boards are not reversing the decisions cf local boards to any great extent. Th:s is especially ( true of the board in the Third appeal district, which is meeting in this city. This board has only reversed the local board in one case. In all other cases reviewed the board 'has sustained the local board in refusing to grant ex emptions. This appeal board takes the position that where a wife is able to make her own living the husband should Join the colors. The same board is not at all easy with farmers and those engaged In agricultural or industrial pursuits. The board holds that no such man should be exempted if It is possible for some other man to take his place cn the farm or in the factory. Some of the members of local boards in this city say they have an intima tion that orders will soon be issued for the examination of every regis tered man in all of the districts throughout the country. They say they expect this order soon after the pres ent draft has been completed. None of them know exactly where they got the tip, and they do not know whether It ia correct, but they believe it and are making preparations along that line.
