across the wake of the li-boat a little
lo the rear of the periBcope.
"As the destroyer dashed across the
line of bubbles, a depth charge was
dropped and a column of clear water
| shot 30 feet in the air. The destroyer
turned to the right swiftly circling aud
his starboard guns opened on the perircope
as she came around to cross the
U-boat's wake again.
"Again a column of clear water showed
that the depth charge had not reached
its mark. Another quick turn to
the right brought the starboard guns to
bear but this time the destroyer turned
so sharply that she was able to
come down for the third attack in the
wake of the submarine. The third
depth charge brought up a column of
clear water and the destroyer wheeled
once more this time to the left and all
port guns opened up but without visible
results. The last time the destroyer
came down to the attack exactly in
the wake of U-boat and ceased firing.
As she beared thtr end of the
line of bubbles, the fourth depth
charge was let go and there followed
widespread boiling of the surface of
the sea, large bubbles and at last a
heavy film of oil.
"The destroyer spent some time
looking for further traces of the Uboat
but none was found. She then
proceeded on her course. The engageI

it the Senate where Senator LaFollette
took the floor at 10 o'clock to make a

| the plans of Senators who were pre-1
paring speeches in reply. Characterizing
attacks upon him as "A general
campaign of villification and attempted
intimidation." LaFollette defiantly
shouted, "Neither the clamor of the
j mob nor the voice of power will ever
turn me by the breadth of a hair from

Miss Sue Kearsley Watson who will ^
go at once to France to take up French g
civilian relief work addressed the
Woman's club yesterday at the Annual r
reunion and so Interested the mem- *
bers with her work that a unanimous t:
vote of the club provided that the
funds of the club over the amount of l'
the year's expenditures will be given a
to this work, the amount to pass direct
ly through Miss Watson's hands. A
committee will be appointed by the j
chair to go over the budget to ascertain
as nearly as possible what that
amount will be so that the funds can
ne at once available.
Miss Watson told of the need of the
work there, how the devastated I
villages so long tinder German r
control now being liberated by the r
steadily advancing line of the British n
and French, were populated almost 1
solely by old men and old women and 1
little children, the young men all be- 1
ing in the army and the young worn- o
en having been taken into captivity 1
by the Germans. The villages are entirely
destroyed, only the staunchest ?
foundations of homes having remain- a
ed, but so great is the lore of these ^
French people for their home that many
of them have returned and are
living in the collars of their once
comfortable homes. The French relief
is working among thesa people rebuild
ing and refurnishing and in every way
trying to instill courage and hopes in
their hearts. The unit with which |
Miss Watson will work is located lnj
me mouc ocuiiuu.

of the women of today to execute

the fact that the social life
of the club would be maintained, that
the condition made thiB a necessity

pleasure she suggested that members

the court house, Justice Price, of Mo
nongah, sitting. The suit is brought,
to recover $300 for certain work which- o ,
Frum has done in the way of completing
some of the sidewalks in iUveeville. V
The mix-up in the building of the
sidewalks dates back about two and a
half years ago when Contractor Patterson
took the contract and ? man
named Barker went on his bund to com- ,
plete the work. Patterson claimi that
the city was to furnish the materials. '
but it Is alleged that in the contract it
was provided they were to be charged 'Qti
against Patterson. The result wat/^iSa
that Patterson quit the work.
At this juncture it is claimed by /
Frum that he was engaged by the towa / j
council to lay the side walk. After /
doing some work Frum went after the /.S
town to secure money to pay hia men '
and the town took the position that/
Frum was doing the work for either r
Patterson or Barker.
After hearing the evidence Justice
Price reserved bis decision until Monday.
Attorney L. C. Musgrave represents
Frum and R. Lee Fleming the
town of Rivesville.
To date there have been almost a
half dozen BUlta between variotu persona
concerned In the laying -of the
side walk and it has proven to be rati
er a knotty matte'- to decide.
