gOTS AND TURKS COME TO
PARTING OF WAYS
LONDON, Aug. 1. "The rela
tions beaween Germany a-nd Turkey
iave been severed, according to di
rect information from Constantino
ple." This announcement is made by the
Copenhagen correspondent oMhe Ex
change Telegraph Company.
The excitement against Germany,
the advices further say, has been
growing, particularly after last
week's events.
The Germans recently demanded
the cruiser Hamidieh, the only large
ship in the possession of Turkey,
as compensation for the Breslau,
the former German cruiser, which
was destroyed in the Dardanelles
while under the Turkish flag.
Despite Turkey's protest the Hami
dieh has departed for Sebastopol
with the German flag flying.
Advices from New York say little
has been reported to amplify the Co
penhagan dispatch to the effect that
Turkey and Germany have broken
off relations.
Amsterdam advices, however, Indi
cate that Turkey intends to pursue
an aggressive policy in the Caucasus
region, the field supposedly set aside
for German exploitation.
This may carry a measure of con
firmation of the rumor that the quad
ruple alliance has broken over the
division of spoils subsequent to the
peace treaties with Russia and Ru
mania. 15B fe Pa
CALOMEL ROBBED OF
NAUSEA AND DANGER
Medicinal Virtues Retained and Im
proved Unpleasant and Danger
ous Qualities Removed New Va
riety Called "Calotabs."
The latest triumph of medical sci
ence is a purified calomel, known as
"Calotabs." The old-style calomel,
as all doctors know, was the best and
most generally used of all medicines.
The new variety, known as Calotabs,
is purified and refined" froon all ob
jectionable qualities, and is most de
lightful in effect.
One Calotab on the tongue at bed
time, a swallow of water that's all.
No taste, no griping, no nausea, no
danger. Next morning you awake
feeling fine, with a clean liver, a
purified system and a hearty appe
tite for breakfast. Eat what you
please. There is no restriction of
habit or diet. Calotabs are sold only
in original, sealed packages; price
thirty-five cents. Your druggist rec
ommends Calotabs, and will refund
your money if you are not delighted
with them. (adv)

Invented Duplex Telegraph.
Dr. Wllhelm GInth of Austria in-
-jvented the duplex telegraph in 1853, j
by which two messages were sent over j
one wire, one message in each direc- j
tion, at the same time. Carl Fischen,
of Hanover Improved the system in
1854, and Joseph B. Stearns of Boston
perfected it in 1872.

WAR GARDENERS
RESPOND TO CALL
Will "Keep the Food Coming" as
General Pershing Has
Asked.
BIG INCREASE THIS YEAR
Central West and Paclflo Coatt Espe
cially Are Doing Well National
Commission Offers Prizes for
Best Home-Grown Cahnttf
Vegetables.
WashIngton.--The war jgardeners of
the United States answered Pershing's
call to "Keep the Food Coming."
There are, according to figures helog
tabulated by the national war garden
commission, 4,000,000 war gardens in
the United States. These figures are
Incomplete and the estimates were
made on reports received up to June
15. This number indicates an increase
of 40 per cent over last year when
there were 8,500,000 garden munition
plants at work. Figuring in the in
creased cost this year over last, fur
ther estimates will be made by the
commission both on the number of gar
dens and the estimated crop value.
"Taking these early figures into
consideration," said Charles Lathrop
Pack, president of the commission, in
making public the preliminary survey,
"together with the increased canning
demonstration work being done by the
United States department of agricul
ture in cities and towns, we feel safe
in saying the forecast of 1,500,000,000
quarts In tin and glass of canned stuff,
made by the department, will be
reached."
Big Prizes Are Offered.
The report points to the early plant
ing season this year, which, was made
possible by weather generally favor
able throughout the country. To en
courage saving the garden crop the
national war garden commission, which
planted a 400-acre demonstration war
garden at Camp Dlx, N. J ia offering
$10,000 to prizes for the best canned
vegetables grown in war gardens, with
the slogan 'Back up the cannon by
use of the canner."
In nearly every section of the coun
try there has been an appreciable and
encouraging 'Increase in the number of
war gardens thUT year, the commission
announced. This has ranged anywhere
from 1Q to 60 per cent In the Eastern
portions there was a failure to note
a gain on the early returns.
"The greatest percentage of in
crease," the commission's statement
adds, "was made in the Central West
ern states and Pacific coast, taking
any one section of the country as a
whole. There an awakening has taken
place which revealed Itself in an en
thusiastic, widespread drive to help
home food production. Of the total
number of war gardens in the United
States, the preliminary reports show
that more than 2,000,000 of them
2,276,000, to be exact were in the
Central Western territory. There was
a gain of fully 50 per cent over the
war garden activity of last year.
Eastsrn States Lagging.
"The Eastern states, Including New
England, New York, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey and Delaware, on the
whole showed little increase over last
year. In certain parts of .all this ter
ritory there has been a better show
ing, and particularly has there been
a greater activity among manufactur
ing concerns in providing land for
their employees ; hut these gains have
been counteracted to' a certain extent
by less activity in other places ; so that
the amount of food home-grown along
the upper Atlantic coast this year will
be slightly if any greater than last
year. Better cultivation in hundreds
of cases may make up for what is lack
ing in numbers. In New York the park
department alone reports 2,000 war
gardens 26 by 40. The total number
of war gardens in this territory, as
shown by the reports, is 848,000, of
which 737,000 are in New York, Penn
sylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
"The South has made an excellent
record, certain states in particular
having made notable gains. Including
Texas and Oklahoma, there are a total
of 1,246,000 war gardens in the South
ern states this year, one-foarth of the
number in the entire United States.
California, Washington- and Oregon
show a total of 468.000 war .gardens.
That the war gardeners intend to save
a ..great part of tb e gnrtleiicnD Is
shown in the 200 entries, received up
to July 1 for the canning, con teats that
garden clubs are organizing all' over
the country."

TANK CARPS CROWING
Recruits Arrive Daily at Gettys

Long Hikes In Heavy Marching Order
Fit, Men for Duty With Persh
ing's Army.
Camp Colt, Gettysburg, Pa. The
Am'erican tank corps continues to grow
and develop. Becrults are still com
ing in and the men already here are
being drilled to within an inch of their
lives. This is the preliminary discip
line and the physical drill which will
fit the men for the strenuous life of a
"tanker" overseas. Twenty-mile hikes
in heavy marching order are almost
daily occurrences.
Although the work is hard, the men
like it They realize their need of this
heavy drill and exercise. 'Negotiat
ing the gray eteei monsters over" No
Man's Land is distinctly not a job for
a man whose muscles are not almost
as hard as steel itself. And for an
erstwhile civilian's muscles to become
sufficiently hardened takes time and
training.
The dally work, the fresh air, plen-
ty of sleep and the excellent dally ra -
tlons are doing wonders in producing
as fine a bunch of real fighting men as
can be found anywhere. The officers'
school will be continued indefinitely.
As fast as men complete the prescribed
course, others will take their places.
From now on, all commissioned offi
cers will, be selected from the ranks.
The tank corps is a progressive
unit Every once in a while a bat
talion will disappear overnight bound
for "somewhere." Becrults -will fill
their places and the work of training
will move right along. New officers,
tramed simultaneously with the men,
will command the disappearing bat
talion. BEST SHOD FIGHTERS
The men stationed at Camp Shei
man will be among the best shod fight
ers in the entire world. An experi
mental test to find the average size and
width of the shoes used and the
amount of leather consumed showed
that by using a device known as the
Resco shoe-fitting device the shoes are
made more comfortable for the men
and leather Is saved. Here is shown
the device being put to practical use.
Each man wears two pairs of wool
socks when fitted for the shoes.

In the photographer's showcase not

who was passing the shop the other I

Perceiving the picture of his chief he

In the early days of the long-range
gun bombardment of Paris, says the
Matin, it was stated that the shells
were made from a new type of steel
alloyed with vanadium, which gave it
exceptional properties. But analysis
has shown that the shells are made of
ordinary nickel and chrome steel, such
as is in current use for making guns
both In France and Germany and
whose properties are well known.

WON'T LEAVE THEIR DEAD
All Fallen Comrades Carried From the

(Special Correspondence of Italian Ameri
can News Bureau.)
Italian Front The Slav soldiers in
the. Italian army elect their own su
periors by the most rigid tests, and
t thus they are representative of the
manhood of their nationalities. The
Italian soldiery and people have taken
kindly to them.
The first of the proofs of valor they
gave are admirable, although limited
to modest operations in exploring and
! raiding. Whether by themselves or
with Italian troops, these Czech-Slovaks,
arriving from beyond the ocean,
have kept up the fire of patriotism and
the ardor to fight, and have fought
well.
The repatriates of the Czecho-Slovakl
army have been saluted already with
brotherly love by the population In the
zone of war, especially by the ancient
Inhabitants of the Veneto, who have
the most recent and liveliest recollec
tion of oppression and the convulsive
struggle for redemption.
The women of Verona offered them a
battle flag In the Bohemian colors, sur
mounted by a lion. The soldiers recog
nized the sanctity of the gift and
swore an oath that they would die for
.that emblem of liberty. The expres
sion was not rhetorical and the oath
superfluous.
Are Killed If Captured.
" The fate that awaits these new war
riors for the ideals of a far-off and
oppressed country is shown by the in
flexible military rules of the Austrian
empire. They are all subjects of the
Emperor Carl and as such death is the
only thing In store for them If cap
tured. Their word Is for that reason sacred.
Neither alive nor dead must they fall
into the hands of the enemy. Even the
dead must be snatched from the op
pressor. Each one has sworn to carry
off to the Italian lines- the body of a
compatriot killed In action.
Recently, during a reconnaissance,
a- 'Bohemian jfell close to the enemy
lines. Braving a hot fire, the explorers
hurried to carry him off, fearing that J
in a night sortie the Austrlans might
get the body.
These "soldiers of death" know that
If an operation falls of success they
must kill themselves. To the igno
minious o)eath inflicted by the enemy
they prefer suicide. Whether through
death by the enemy or through their
own hands, they have consecrated their
lives to the distant fatherland, from
which they have come to fight In the
greatest cradle of all liberty and all
Ideals Italy. . , v
Eliminate Weak and Unfit
Borne, the ancient lighthouse of civ
ility and of liberty, has substituted
these new companions in arms for
those of Russia. hese warriors for
the freedom of their country have
found In the ranks of our own combat
ants fraternity and sturdy faith. This
fraternity, more' than common ideals
for the redemption of their respective
countries, is cemented by the know
ledge and vision of the real difficulties
and the resolution and firmness of
purpose of the new combatants. From
their own ranks on a spontaneous vote
they have eliminated all about, whose
military vigor or, enthusiasm there
could be any doubt so that the recruits
represent the flower of the soldiery of
the oppressed nationalities. Drawn
from the same country, speaking the
same tongue, in the dally intimacy of
their new military life, they have sub
jected each other to voluntary but in
flexible tests. The results are confided
only to their officers.
. "Titus does not please me. He would
not make a good corporal. We do not
want him," they say. Thus, out of the
ancient "military system of Austria
. snrinea elements of criticism which ex-
iude the weak and unfit The officers
must heed these verdicts, which, like
all collective judgments, arise from a
full consensus of the judges.
Elect Own Officers.
The examination of the political
opinion 'is ;not less exacting for being
carried out by fellow soldiers. A Csech
, recruit who spoke his mother tongue
j well was challenged, vby his .compat
riots. "He 'speaks our language well,
; but his heart is not Czech," they said.
j It was learned that during protracted
I business transactions In Vienna he had
i lost the fierceness and .the intrepidity
j of the Bohemian, character through
' dally contact with the Austrian author
ities, t . r() , , , , ,
This control lias .been fraught with
excellent results. Those who haver sur
vived the tests of the assembled judges
have furnished the best war material
- and proved themselves dependable In
military and, moral affairs. "
I The officers are also elected by the
soldiers, who trust 'their .leaders with
Hind faith, rand five them the most
rigid obedience and discipline. Such
j discipline the new soldiers of liberty
. are taught by their remembrance of
imperial oppression, to hold ssasnttal
to the artoaph of their cams
