HERR, 16 South Second St. CONQUEST OF THE EARTH Man's Battle fro Fruitful Fields j Against Nature's Barriers Nature has set up four kinds of bar riers to man's conquest of the earth— mountains, forests, deserts, rivers. The first he cannot remove, so he bores holes through them for his railways. The second he has, most unwisely, largely cleared away altogether. The third he is beginning to treat like the forests. The fourth he is shifting to suit his purposes and to regulate their I flow at will. Man flies now over all boundaries. | He cuts through isthmuses to remove j the barriers between the seas^ Into the deserts man sends railroads, | telegraph lines, irrigation engineers. The Great American desert marked j upon the atlases of our fathers has J ceased to exist. The vast desert of northwestern Canada has become a prairie of waving wheat. The Landes of Gascognv are now much more than | half covered with pine trees. Over j 22,000 square miles of the Algerian j desert has been made fruitful by arte- ■ sian wells. Tin Australian desert is j rapidly being irrigated and turned into ! grazing land. Almost 70,000 square; miles of desert in India have been re- ! claimed. Operations are now in prog-! ress for reclaiming J9,000 square miles of the delta of the .Tigris and Euphra tes, and more than 4.000 square miles of the Gezireh plain between the Bhie and the White Nile are being trans formed into cotton plantations. Thus is man by obliterating natural | Carriers improving upon j l<ouis Post-Dispatch. A Whisticr Story While a draftsman in the coast sur- . vev from November, 1854, to February,! 1855, Whistler, the artist, boarded at j the northeast corner of K and Tvvolfth | streets, Washington. He is remember- j ed as being usually late for breakfast: and always making sketches on the j walls. To the remonstrating landlord. he replied: "Now, now, never mind! I'll not I charge yon anything for the decora- j tions."

THE LAST SHOT Dramatic Incident That Closed the Franco-Prussian War There wa« probably no incident in , the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 more j dramatic than that which marked its | close. Herr Forckenbeck, president of l the Prussian chamber of deputies was I sent with a colleague to Versailles to! congratulate King Williaim upon his j election as emperor. Bismarck, who had just concluded i the terms of peace with France, in-, j vited them to supper and in the course j ! of the meal said: j "This night at 12 o'clock the last} shots will be exchanged between our | troops and the French, and I have 1 conceded to the French the honor of | the lost shot." / Forckenbeck and his colleague left ; their host before midnight, drew out i their watches, stood underneath a lau ' tern of the Hotel du Reservoir and I waited. First there was a cannon | shot from the German lines; then a solemn stillness; then followed the Last I reply from Mont Valerien. The tow !er clock at Versailles struck 12. The I French war had ended.—Exchange. DR.XOAN PENNED 111 THE WAR ZONE Missionary, Who Talk ed in Market Square Church, Marx>oned in Constantinople MRS. LABAREE WRITES OF KURDS Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel W. Fleming Tells of Horrors Enacted by Them—Some Amusing Inci dents, Too * A largely attended meeting of the Foreign Missionary Society of Market Squ'are Presbyterian church was held in the ohurch thus afternoon, at whicli a number of ma/ttors pertaining to the ivork were taken up. During the after noon Mrs. Mabel Oronise Jones read an extract from a letter received by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel W. Fleming, of this city, from their daugihtar, Mrs. Mary Fleming Latyaree, who, with her husband, is in the missionary field at Tabriz, Persia, showing tihat the war in Europe is even affecting faraway Persia, by reason of the Turks taking part. Mrs. Labaree's letter is as fol lows: '' Another week has brouigthit home Mr. and Mrs. Pittnuan, Miss Ijaim/mo and Miss Beaber, safely from Uruimia. It has also brought a cessation of hos tilities in Uruinia. Week before last was an anxious time for the Christians there. The Kurds swept down to the hil'l's of Ch air bach, oaly ten minutes from the city. They foug'ht their way down to Uruimia l'ast Monday and the next day would have been in the city. That very night Bussian re-enforce ments came in such nuimtbers that the Kurds saw that they could do nothing and retired on Tuesday morning, the very day thalt our delegates returned from the annual meeting in Tabriz. Kurd's Attack Well Organized '' The aJtUaeJc was so open, so organ ized, so different in Its plan from the usual Kurdish attack that thoughtful ones are confident that Turkish or German brains direcited it.

J WHERE RAIN IS A NOVELTY Think of Having a Shower Only Once in Twenty-four Years! Tho Chilean provinces of Atacama Tarapaca and Tacna are in the. rain less region, or desert country west of the Andes, and are entirely devoid of vegetation. The winds in all of this region are from the east and in passing over tho elevated perpetual snows of the Andes are stripped of their mois ture and arrive on the coast perfectly dry. The last rain, a slight shower which fell in Antofagasta, in Atacama pro vince, was the first rain which had fallen in sixteen years. The last rain which fell in Iquique, in Tarapaca province, was the first in twonty-four years. With both of these showers a notable phenomenon occurred. The bare hills back of these cities assumed a green tint from a little plant which sprang up almost in a night. The query is, "Prom wher e did this plant comef " The whole of the coast presents a most dismal and discouraging appear ance from the sea, but the climate is healthy, being especially adapted to pulmonary and throat troubles from its extreme dryness ai\d freedom from germs. The heat is modified by a local sea, breeze, and the sea bathing is most invigorating, aa the water is cold. 15 NEW IIILIT A ACT IS WORKING WELL Though in Operation but a Short Period, Good Results Have Been Obtained NAVAL BUREAU CHIEF'S REPORT Commander Bassett Calls Attention to How Volunteer Arm of Service Can Be Improved by Making Number of Recommendations By Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 4.—The now militia act is working well, even though it has been in operation for a short period, according to Commander F. B. Bassett, Jr., chief of the Naval Militia Bureau, in his annual report to-day. On the whole, he says, the naval militia increased in numbers during the past year for while several divis ions were disbanded a number were organized and the increase is expectod to l>e evon more marked during the coming year owing to the enthusiasm and interest aroused by the passage of the act. . Inspectors reports showed that the naval militia, with the exception of two divisions of South Carolina, wero qualified to participate in the allot ment of federal funds. Several organi zations are top heavy with officers and petty officers, and in many cases the rank of the officers is too high. Because of the difficulty in getting relations from naval militia officers, busy with their own affairs consider able government property is not prop erly accounted for and Comma'nder Bassett recommends that at least one competent yeoman be assigned to each naval militia vessel to assist in this clerical work. He recommends also that some of the old battleships now in reserve, be assigned to a naval mil itia of certain states, the reserve of ficers and men on the ships to remain aboard while they are also occupied by the militia. The plan is for the Illi nois to be taken to Brooklyn for use by the Second Battalion ot' the New York Naval Militia; the Maine to New York for the use of the First Battalion of the New Jersey Militia, and the First Battalion of the New York Mil itia; the Alabama to be taken to Bos ton for the use of the Massachusetts Naval Militia and the Kentucky to be moored in the Delaware river for the use of the Second Battalion Now Jer sey Naval Militia and the First Bat talion Pennsylvania Militia. As the naval militia is a purely vol untary organization, made up of busi ness and working men the time they are able to devote to naval militia matters is necessarily limited and should, in the opinion of Commander Bassett, be devoted to drills and the details of the naval profession. He asserts that they should not be expect ed to spend much time scaling bilges, painting double bottoms or repairing material and he recommends a consid erable increase of the number of ship keepers to take care of this work. LATE WAR NEWS SUMMARY Continued From First I'nge. ill the war there were similar interrup tions of news dispatches which proved later to have been due to rigid censor ship during the progress of vital events. For several days it has been Inti mated unofficially that another great battle In Belgium and Northwestern France was pending The forces of the allies in that re gion have been strengthened and the assumption of supreme command thero by the English general, Sir John French, was believed to indicate that the new English army recently sent to the con tinent had been scattered along the Yser in Belgium and in Northern France, perhaps in preparation for a great attack. It has been assumed by some military critics that the allies on this occasion would take the offensive, since the Germans presumably were weakened by the withdrawal of troops for use in the campaign against Rus sia. Others have stated, however, that Oermany had determined to make a "last effort" to push through to the English channel. Germany has resumed the offensive in the East and is striking another blow at Russia. Although authenti cated reports pictured the situation only in vaguest outline, it was apfcjrent that the Oermans, who only a fewniays ago were fighting desperately to averfe> a calamitous defeat, are now renewing [ their efforts to sweep back the enemy. A new battle has developed southwest of Lodz, where the Germans have formed another line and are again at tempting to piece the Russian center, j The forces of Emperor William thus i are operating at a comparative advan tage with the beginning of their third assault. Their first invasion of Poland, which took them almost to Warsaw, was followed by a retreat to German territory. The second movement was checked near Lodz, but on this occa sion they succeeded in holding their main positions, so that now the attempt at a forward movement is initiated by forces already firmly nxed on Russian soil.
