DENMAN OUSTED E. N. Hurley, Chicago, Named Shipping Board Head. WILSON ENOS LONS WRANGLE Copps, of the Navy, Succeeds General as Manager Bainbridge Colby Takes Place of White, Who Resign ed—Secretary Daniels Comman deers Ships. WASHINGTON, D. C.—General Goe thals won his fight, thought it cost him his job to do it. The steel ship program wiil be carried through, the Hough model wooden ships will not be built and the construction will be in the hands of the general manager of the emergency fleet corporation, as will be the construction of the gov ernment shipyards and the comman deering of ships now on the ways. Moreover, like the rest of the navy, Rear Admiral Copps, who succeeds General Goetlials, is absolutely com mitted to the doctrine of steel ships. WASHINGTON, D. C. President Wilson asked Chairman Denman of the shipping board to resign and ac cepted the resignation of Major Gen eral Goethals as general manager of the emergency fleet corporation. Edward N. Hurley, a Chicago busi ness man and former chairman of the federal trade commission, will become chairman of the shipping board. Washington L. Copps, chief construc tor of the navy, will succeed General Goetlials as general manager of the emergency - fleet corporation. Bain bridge Colby of New York will become a member of the shipping board in place of Captain John B. White, whose resignation the President accepted. The President sent in the nominations of Mr. Hurley and Mr. Colby later in the day. Asks Denman to Resign. Official announcement of the ac ceptance of the resignations of Goe thals and White was made with pub lication of a letter from President Wilson to Chairman Denman asking for his resignation and giving the President’s opinion that the only way to end the row which has delayed the shipbuilding program was for both Goethals and Denman to be removed from the situation. In asking for Mr. Denman’s resigna tion, President Wilson suggested that he would be glad to take the “same disinterested and self-forgetting course that General Goethals has taken. “When you have done as he has done,” the President wrote Mr. Den man, “I am sure that you may count with the utmost confidence upon the ultimate verdict of the people of the country with regard to your magnam inous and unselfish view of public duty and upon winning in the re trospect the same admiration and con fidence that I have learned to feel for you.” Chairman Denman received the President’s request for his resignation at noon and tendered it immediately. “I want to help the President in every way possible,” he said, “and never have questioned the wisdom of his decisions.” President Wilson's action came as a surprise. Officials generally had thought he would make a further ef ffort to patch up differences and di cide specifically between'Chairman Denman and General Goethals powers conferred on him by the shipping act. Daniels Requisitions Ships, -requisitioning of commercial ships W’as begun by Secretary Daniels. Seven tank steamers were ordered to report at Atlantic and Pacific ports to carry fuel oil for the navy. Speaks Slightingly of America. BERN, SWITZERLAND The Post Zeitung of Augsburg, Bavaria, says that at the reception given re cently by Emperor William In Berlin to members of the reichstag the em peror in conversing with Philipp Scheidemann, the Socialist leader, spoke slightingly of America and ex pressed the conviction that the United States would not play a decisive part in the war. Deadline Ordered on Saloons. • WASHINGTON, D. C. —By executive order President Wilson prohibits the existence of disorderly resorts or sa loons within five miles of any military camp. Any towns within such radius licensing saloons of this class may be (within a half mile of the camp. Priv ate persons living within five miles of such a camp may have liquors in their possession for personal use, but may not give them to any trooper. U. S. Soldiers to Canada. FORT SHERIDAN, ILL.

ENOCH CROWDER Provost Marshal General Who Planned Draft Drawing. S'w '-a. "v\ §|§ |b Photo by American- Press Association. A GENERAL SURVEY OF THE WAR. Thursday, July 19.—German troops under the crown prince made further attacks on French positions. One was made on a front of 800 meters south of St. Quentin. The attacks gained a footing in the French first line, but were expelled from the greater part of these positions by a counter at tack. A German attempt to regain ground captured by the French near Avocou-rt wood, on the Verdun front, was defeated. Russian troops have again driven into the Galician village of Novica, south of Kalusz, and now occupy the eastern end of that place. The Rus sians captured more than 200 prison ers and three machine guns in fight ing near Novica. Friday, July 20.—German troops have pushed forward through three strong Russian zones of defense be tween the Sereth and Zlota Lipa riv ers, in eastern Galicia. The Russians suffered‘heavily, the statement adds, and are retreating in disorder. The Germans took a few thousand prison ers. * Saturday, July 21.—German troops in eastern Galicia have crossed the Zlochoff-Tarnopol road on a front of 40 kilometers. They found burning villages and great destruction in their path. The German statement also an nounces Austro-Hungarian forces re captured positions north of Brzezany lost to the Russians July 1. German troops in the central sec tor of the Chemin-des-Dames on the Aisne front took 100 French prisoners in a surprise attack and carried out other important raiding operations in the Rheims and Verdun sectors. Sunday, July 2.—The French and Russian fronts continue the scenes of the greatest military activity. In France, between Coissons and Rheims, the French have again given an exhibition of their tenacious ability at defense, like that which held the Germans back from Verdun. In the east the Russian line in Ga licia apparently is crumbling by rea son of the disaffection of some of the troops and the vicious assaults the Germans and Austro-Hungarians, es pecially the Germans, are throwing against it. Tuesday, July 24.—Desperate fight ing took place at two points, in the Russian line and on t u e f~cnt in France where the ~ r ~ re? de livered furious blov;s nreavor to shake General rctah 1 ’J on a number of commanding ro~-t!cns. Th" German counter-offensive rgamst the Russians appears to be sweeping cn ward with uniform success and the occupation of the city of Taraopol, in eastern Galicia, is confirmed. To offset Russian reverses in the Galician battles comes word of an at tack on the Germans near Krevo and Vilna, north of the Pinsk marshes, in wnich the Teuton line was penetrated for a distance of more than two miles. The Russians captured more than 1,- 000 German prisoners. Burbank Has Appendicitis. SANTA ROSA, CAL.

[National Crop Improvement Service.] The average reformer having so little at stake himself, plunges about: like a bull in a china shop, regard- . less of the results of his ardor. An amusing incident is told of the' Secretary of Commerce. The can: manufacturers put up a howl that' unless they could get tin-plate to make up, no canning of fruits and vegetables could be done, so without i looking over the field it is said that 1 an order was made that steel was to j be diverted by the manufacturers j from other projects and put at the; disposal of the can manufacturers. It looked all right on the face of it, but when the manufacturers of har vesting machinery demanded steel which they contracted for, and found that there was not steel for aprons, it having been diverted to cans, a hurry-up call modifying the order | was issued, so that our harvesting machines could be made in time for the growing crop. This illustrates how many plans are ignorantly made robbing Peter to pay Paul. Every enthusiast who has a pet reform which is always hitting some other business instead of his own, never looks around to see what the effect will be before lie plunges. The manufac turers of feed and the most success ful feeders in the country have a right to demand that that delicate machine —the dairy cow —shall not be wrecked by hasty legislation. Revolutionary reforms are seldom efficacious. Anything which disturbs the food equilibrium should be handled gradually. Experience has shown that the most efficient way to handle cereal products is to remove the human food first and feed the residue to stock. Any other system is sheer extravagance. WRONG FEEDING METHODS. [National Crop Improvement Service.] There is an old story about a ship captain who had a medicine chest. A sailor was sick and he found that No. 47 in his book was the indicated rem edy, but alas! the bottle of No. 47 was ompty, so he took equal parts of No. 40, which was strychnine, and No. 7, which was carbolic acid, and added them together and made No. 47 —and the sailor died. The application of this old story is that many a feeder will think that if a little of cottonseed or oilseed meal is good, a whole lot will be better. And, like the man who put the green spectacles on the horse and fed him shavings—just after he got him trained the horse died. It is human nature to experiment in feeds, and the poor cow has to suf fer for an overdose or an underdose before the proper ration is estab lished. DIFFICULT TO MIX FEEDS A More Scientific Result Can Be Pro duced By Machinery. [National Crop Improvement Service.] As no two lots run alike, it is very difficult to mix straight by-products of oats, barley, rye, corn, cotton-seed, flaxseed, etc., by measure, because it is purely guessing. Only a few years ago intentional fraud or unintentional carelessness was the rule. Before the feed laws were passed, each manu facturer adulterated all the trade would stand. Every car of feed sold to the con sumer is not analyzed, and the farmer cannot become a feed expert because he has no laboratory. Not one car out of five hundred is officially in spected. In the old days country millers were throwing feeds together with no knowledge of feed and were ruining valuable cows and making the farmer poorer. In those days the feed tables were wrong, -the feeds didn’t fit the tables; the digestible analysis method feed standards for animals were not agreed upon nor complete; the animals didn’t fit the standards; the buyer didn’t know what was in the feeds he bought to mix; and there was an unavoidable variation in the concentration of the feed. These conditions have been largely overcome through the joint action of the government and state experiment stations and the mixed feed manu facturers who have every facility for maintaining a uniform product. By using these scientifically prepared feeds, many a herd has doubled its yleld> and profits. There are some painters who can buy lead, oil and dryer and mix and match their own color uniformly but the best paint iro of today have learned that mill-n. .Je brands are much better than any thing they can mix with a paddle. The same is true in fertilizers to a great extent. In mixed feeds there can be no economy in home mixing because the mixing factories, being near the large markets, can utilize by-products to the very best advan tage. Home mixing cannot be accom plished at one-tenth of a cent per lb., besides the result is never twice alike and cannot be without the help of a laboratory. [National Crop Improvement Service.] A practical test shows. that eight tons of a first class dairy feed will re place 13 1-3 tons of farm grain, mak ing a proportionate saving of about S2O per ton and it also puts three times as much fertilizer back on the farm as is in the grain this farmer could sell. [National Crop Improvement Service.] There is no sense in hauling two loads of cheap feed w’hen one load of high-grade feed will do the work and costs but three-fourths as much as the two loads. , i HAVEN'T SEEN GENUINE NO j 1 ——- —- I AROUND A y EARS j COL ' LD GET P GRAVELY’® pH l IN YEARS j [WAS ORDINARY] _ CELEBRATED [3SS J Chewing Plu§ [ljllli Be Rid Of That Ache. If you are a sufferer with lame back, backache, dizziness, nervousness, and kidney disorders, why don’t you try the remedy that your own neighbors recommend.
