Paris.—The German frontier was
crossed at several places Sunday by
American signal corps units und ambu
lance workers.
Short trips were made into Rhen

American forces have-completed de
molishing barriero which guarded the
old German front east of Verdun, con
sisting of reinforced concrete pillars
stretching along the old front for two
miles. ■
At Mars-La-Tour, just at the edge
of the village, the Americans encoun

blasts of dynamite soon put them out
of commission.
At Etain the Germans had barriers

wheels, the logs being movable like
a gate. On these barriers the Ger
mans had Installed Ingenious devices
to remove the wheels from beneath
the logs which woul^d then drot> across

the mines failed to destroy the bridge.

While Subjects Were Starving He' Had
Plenty of fcrovisions.
Amsterdam.—"How Wilhelm held
out," is the title of an article in the
Frankfort Volks Stlimne by Wilhelm
Carle, a socialist, who discovered the
hoards of provisions which the former
emperor had in his Berlin palace.
"The quantity," the writer says, "ex
ceeded oil expectations. In large
white-tiled rooms was everything, lit
erally everything one can imagine in
foodstuffs. It is inconceivable that af
ter four years of war such huge quan
ti ties could be hharded. There was
-meat whd game in cold storage, salted
provisions in large cases, white meal in
sacks piled to the roof, thousands of
eggs, gigantic boxes filled with tea, cof
fee, chocolate, iard, jelly and jam; hun
dreds of sugar loaves and endless
stacks of peas, beans, dried fruits and
biscuits. Their value amounts to sev
eral hundred thousand marks.
"These hoarded foodstuffs cannot
be better used than to be preserved as
a lasting memorial to our posterity
which should see how, while millions In
Germany'starved, those elected by the
grace of God held out."

than he encountered elsewhere In Hol
land. As he descended from the rail
way car with a swaggering gait and
wearing a fnr coat, howls of execra

him somewhat.

Oban, Soettish 8ummer Resort, Prao
tieafly Supported by Enthusiastic
Visitors Who Buy Souvenirs.
' Oban la a Scottish town that exists
almost entirely for the benefit of
tourist Every other house in Oban
is a bearding house or a hotel,
buildings that have escaped this
are used as shops where the traveler
enticed into buying a beautiful plaid
tartan for which he has no use,
Scotch pebbles which are guaranteed
to be highly ornamental in the parlor

is the place to resurrect him. All

"Who's Who" of the past any obliging
shopkeeper will unblinklngly, produce
a plaid which fits the name of your
kinsman and which matches your
brary carpet
If you stroll through the quiet streets
to the top of a hill you can see Oban
at its best The water of the bay is
shlnlngly blue that you at once
solve to take a trip to one of the tiny
Islands dotting the smooth expanse.
The roads that climb the Scotch hills
so easily are edged with close-trimmed
hedges, and the cottages are cloaked
glossy and picturesque ivy.
Off to one side is a great circular
edifice not unlike a Roman circus. This,
your hostess informs you on your re
turn, is "McCaig's Folly." If you are
still curious you will be told the story
of old eccentric McCalg, who had this
useless, antique-looking structure built
at great expense to himself and to the
vast'amusement of his fellojv citizens.
Winter is the quiet time In Oban.
Then there are no enthusiastic
strangers to buy expensive souvenirs
or to hire boats for trips around the
bay. The town Is gloomy and desert
ed. The women are indoors weaving
plaids for the coming summer, and the
men are out on the bay hard at work
with the fishing fleet.—Chicago Dally
Leader of Pickaninny Band Showed
Himself Fully Capable of Dealing
With Emergency.
An itinerant pickaninny band hail*

South struck up lively airs In one ot
the streets and attracted attention*- ac
cording to a Saratoga Springs corre
spondent of the New York Evening
Post The doughty little drum major,
dressed in an imposing collection of
colors, rested between airs and sug
gested to bystanders that they make
contributions for the good of the cause.
Four army officers stopped and ban
tered the leader until his soul grew
vexed. Suddenly he' had an inspira
tion and turning to his dozen jazz mu
sicians he raised his baton and gave
th® signal for th© "Star-Spangled Ban
per." which the darkles played wRh
earnestness and drew out as long as
The officers, of coarse, immediately
came to salute and remained in that
posture until the grinning drum major
brought down his baton on the. final
note. The officers appeared a bit nad
in the face and proceeded along their
way without attempting to "spoof the
band any further. They appeared to
be making remarks Shtto voce.
The Reward of Kindness.
The unusual feature of an individu
al devising all his effects to his busi
ness partner to the exclusion of hie
children, and not preserving any es
tate to devise Is contained In the will
of a Chicago citizen, which was ad
mitted to probate recently. The tes
tator left all he possessed to his part
ner. In explanation of his action the
testament reads: "My reasons for this
are that what wbrldly possessions I
have are due entirely to the generosi
ty of my partner and I feel that I
only have a life interest. Although it
would be a pleasure to leave 'my chil
dren something—In other circum
stances—as I am I must be Just They
are young and able." The peti
tion accompanying the document
states, however, that the decedent a

How "Black Watch" Got Name.
In the old days the regiments of
the British army were known by the
color of their fanlforms, as the White
regiment, the Bine regiment, or the
Red regiment, and so ad Infinitum. It
is quite possible, therefore, that there
was a Black regiment, from whence
came the Black Watch. The Red reg
iment, incidentally, was Cromwell's
Watch" was also used for the Guards
of the Dominicans or Black Friars,
and came to be applied also to the
scullions in the kitchens of the great
houses, whose business It was to look
after the pots and pans.

The coconut crab of Christmas Is
land earns its name by the way it
makes its living. Except for its an
nual visit to the sea, it lives in a hole
in the ground lined with coconut fibers
and climbs np the coconut trees to
procure its food. According to Ameri
can Forestry, this "robber-crab's meth
od of carrying coconuts is to strip
them of their husks and then to hold
he nut under some of its walking
esrs, v/hile it retires, raised high on,
the hips of those legs not used for
this purpose."' After removing the
husk from the coconuts the crab
hammers on tiie round depressions At
one end till entrance is effected."

Into the Garden In defiance of an edict
by Mayor Hylan. Large numbers of
men in uniform entered the building
before the doors were locked with the
avowed determination of preventing at

were restrained with difficulty by po
lice and detectives from making an as

were interrupted by officers.
Soldiers, sailors and marines then
gathered and, breaking through the
police guard, drove the socialists from
the meeting place.
Mounted police, reinfored by auto
mobile loads of reserves, rushed from
every station house within a radius
of miles, struggled valiantly to clesr
the Square, but, made little progress.
Soldiers and sailors, thoroughly an
gered by what they considered an In
sidious attack on the flag they had
sworn to defend, paid little attention
to blows from night sticks. They were
bent on getting revenge from the in
