to net rid of them.
Again the polen of the weeds,
especially rag weed, causes hay

much to the appearance of
things. -Ex.

Mule Knocked Down
by LiveWire
The heavy rain and windstorm
Monday morning about 6:30
o'clock crossed the street light
wires andtiouse wires on North
Main street, causing a short,
which burned one of the wires
in two, and caused ft to drop in
the street in front of Hugh
Driver's shop. Before any one
could phone the Light Plant io
shut off the current a man riding
a mule undertook to cross it,
with the result the mule was
knocked down as soon as he
stepped on the concrete crossing
I which was charged. The wire
being insulated probably pre
vented the full voltage going in
to the animals body, thus saving
it from any damoge.

Fluor Spar is King.
(By W. A. Calhoun, C. E)
Fluor spar known chemically
as Calcium Floride (Co F 2) is
a mineral used for refining iron,
copper, brass, bronze, silver and
gold, by attacking any ilica or
sand present, making a volitile
compound, which is driven oft in
a form of vapor.
It dissolves the metallic oxides
(the cause of blowholes) setting
free the inert oxygen where
it can do no harm. It makes
clean, sharp, strong casting, re
fines metal recovered from
arround slag, scraps and sweep
ngs ana increases me tensiie
It is the mineral from which
hydrofluoric is made and is the
most active flux or metal refin
ing agent that nature produces.
It also carries witn it irequent
y zinc and lead in the foim of
carbonate or blende which makes
a valuable by product, and is
also used in the highest charac
ter of glass and clay wares, also
lenses, and carbon electrodes
for lamps.

Dressed In Men's Uniforms And
Chained to Pieces Says The
American Officer.
Shelbyvillp, Ky., August 26.
Second Lieut. John Dawson
Buckner, Co. A. 4th Infantry,
who was wcunded in France on
July 25, has written to his wife.
Mro. Helen Buckner, the start
ling fact:
"That one half the German
prisoners captured were found
to be wcrAen dressed in men's
uniforms and were chained to
the field machine guns which
they had been compelled to help
with the field pieces against the
allies." -
This is the first story of the
women being used by the Ger
mans, but it is an absolute fact,
according to the writer.
There is no longer any danger
of the allies being defeated in
the great war. The terrible
crisis of last spring has been
safely passed. Let every Amer
ican rest assured, victory is ab
solutely certain. From now on
the foe will suffer a series of
crushing and decisive defeats.
No one knows just when the
great struggle will close. Possi
bly it may be this year; possibly
next year; certainly it can not
last forever. Before New Year
the Germans will realize that
their cause is hopeless, but they
are wonderfully determined and
mav hold out to the last gasp.'
The allies are stronger and
better equipped than the Ger
mans and the Entente soldiers
are also commanded by one of
the ablest and most , efficient
leaders in the whole world, a
man whose marvelous strategy
and splendid military judment
can be compared favorably with
that of Robert E. Lee.

had 12,000,000 able-bodied men.
