Edgerton A GENERAL SURVEY OF THE WAR. .... Friday, May s.—lt is stated author itatively that if the official text of Germany’s note bears out the unoffi cial copy transmitted in news dis patches, the United States will ac cept the assurances it contains and await a fulfillment of its promises. Germany promises that her submarine commanders will first visit and search frieghters as well passenger-carrying ships before sinking them, but modi fies it by making the permanency of its promise conditional on the United States compelling Great Britain to observe international law in her block ade. # London reports two Zeppelins de stroyed one by a British cruiser and one at Saloniki. These make three Zeppelins brought down in three days. Four more leaders in the “Irish Revolution” were executed —Joseph Plunkett, Edward Daly, Michael O’- Hanrahan and William Pearse, broth er of Patrick Pearse, the “Presidnt of Ireland.” Paris reports that the gains made by one movement against Dead Man’s Hill near Verdun recovered the po sitions from the Germans it required the latter two months to take. Saturday, May 6. —Major John Mc- Bride, a leader in the Irish rioting, has been shot. He was the eight lead er of the Sinn Fein rebellion to suf fer death by sentence of court mar tial. President Wilson received a mes sage from Pope Benedict bearing up on tne establishment of peace in Eur ope. It is understood the pope urges President Wilson to suggest negotia tions at once. It was stated also that he expressed the hope that a break in diplomatic relations between the Unit ed States and Germany would not de velop.. The Germans gained a foothold at Hill 304 West of the Meuse, Paris ad mits. Sunday, May 7. —The sinking of an allied transport in the Mediterranean late in April with the loss of nearly all the 600 Russian troops who were on board is reported in advices from Corfu, the Overseas News Agency an nounces. Two steamers, one British and 'me French and two German submarines were destroyed and another British steamer badly damaged as a result of the subsea warfare. In fierce attacks on both banks of the Meuse the German forces gained ground from the French. They enter ed the French communicating trench es east of Hill 304 and gained a foot ing in the first trench line between Haudromont wood and Fort Douau mont over an extent of nearly a third of a mile. Monday May B. —The White Star liner Cymric, carrying from New York to Liverpool, with a crew of about IOC officers and men reported sinking in Atlantic. German submarines are reported to have marked for sinking the Cymric as well as other British liners which have been carrying muni tions from New York to Liverpool. President Wilson in a formal note dispatched to Berlin has accepted as meeting his remand the announced change in Germany’s submarine poli cy. Coupled with this acceptance is a veiled threat that diplomatic rela tions will be severed unless the new orders issued by the Grman admiral ty are scrupulously observed. Furious counter-attacks drove the Germans from their newly won posi tions between Hill 304 and Dead Man and recovered for the French the lost ground south of Haudremont, north of Verdun.

But the truth of the matter is that you gain as much or more than he does. First of all, you have a wider selection of stock to choose from —you get what you want when you want it. Then you make a better investment by _ buying at the beginning of the season, because tyou get a full season’s wear out of the clothes.
