operations. Pressing their advantage,
the French tro*opa advanced to a point

[By Ed. L. Keen, United Press
Staff Correspondent.]
LONDON, Aug. 3.—Fighting around
Verdun today again took the center
of interest in the daily war reports.
Frank admission was made In the
Berlin official statement that Frenda
attacks at three points against the
encircling German lines around the
fortress city had been successful.
From the Berlin and Paris war of
fice reports it appeared that the
French activity in this sector almost
partook of a general offensive move
ment against the German army of
the crown prince. Berlin admitted
French troops yesterday "gained a
footing on Pepper Ridge" (La Cote
Du Povre) Just below Vacherauvllle
on the Meuae at the northern point
of the German encircling attempt.
The same success of a French drive
"southwest of Fleury" was admitted.
Today's French communique men
tioned an artillery duel along Le
Chapitre ridge and at Chenois—both
points being slightly south of Fluery
—-but declared there was no infantry
action there. In this same section
lies Laufee forest, where the German
'•statement admits the French recap
tured a section of trench gained by
the Germans recently.
Paris also reported violent German
"counter attacks against the trenches
captured yesterday on the right bank
of the Meuse, which they asserted
had been repulsed with "heavy losses.
"Important progress" was claimed
south of Fleury.
There was apparently a slight lull
in the fighting along the AngloOer
man front, General Haig merely re
porting artillery firing and stating
that the British were consolidating
their positions
German Report,
BERLIN, Aug. 3—Both British and
French attacks on the western front
yesterday failed, according to today's
war office statement.
"Strong English attacks on both
sides of the Albert-Bapaume road,
east of Trones forest broke down," it
asserted. "French advancc* near
Barlux and Estress were repulsed."
"Between Maurepas and the
Somme, seven French assaults were
made," the communique continued.
"We remained masters of our posi
tions after stubborn fighting. The
enemy only succeeded in penetrating
to Monacu farm, also a trench sec
tion north of that point.
"At the Thiaumont work, southeast
of Fleury the enemy was completely
repulsed, likewise in the mountain
and forest near by, after temporarily
breaking our lines. They suffered
heavy losses. The enemy obtained a
footing on Pepper ridge, southwest of
Fleury and they recaptured a trench
section lost Tuesday in Laufee forest.
fV "On the eastern front Russian ad
vances on both sides of Lake Nobel
tailed. Southwest of Lubieszew a
strong attack broke down. An enemy
advance around Kowelsornyry was
driven oft."

Those who witnessed the hanging
said the Irishman was master of him

the noose to tighten. When the
priest recited. Casement responded in
a clear voice:
"The Lord have mercy on my soul.'
Casement was granted Just one
boon before hiB death—and that was
permission to wear his own clothes
instead of the prison garb to which he
objected strongly on his Incarceration
in the condemned cell. He did not
wear a collar. He assisted the execu

ioning his arms and legs.
The government turned a deaf ear
to all pleae for commutation of the
degraded knight's sentence. Peti

A coitoner's inquest over the body
of Casement, held at 10:30, resulted
In the solemn verdict that his death
was "doe to execution by hanging."
Solicitor Calvin Duffy, -who was
Casement's counsel, was Indignant at
the refusal of the prison authorities
immediately to turn over the body ol
the Irish knight after the law had
been satisfied.
"Representing the deceased's rela

Insufficient Evidence.
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 3.—Denying
that there was any evidence at the
trial of Roger Casement, executed in
London today, connecting the accused
knight "in any way" with the upris

American lawyer, who defended him,
issued a hot statement here this after
noon Mn answer to that of Lord Robert
Cecil yesterday.
"To use the Well uprising and the
unfortunate circumstances in connec

Therefore, the only person who could

How You Can M#k®
Hairs Quickly Disappear
(Helps to Beauty)
Even a stubborn growth of hair
will quickly vanish from the face,
neck or arms after a single treatment
with delatone. To remove the hairs,
make a stiff paste with a little pow
dered delatone and water, apply to
hairy surface and after about 2 min
utes rub off, wash the skin and it
will be left free from hair or blem
ish. To avoid disappointment, be
iuite certain you get real delatone.

"That's the last that will be seen

declared Captain Hinsch.
Captain Zach Cuillson of the Tim
mins, would only say:
"I'm glad she's gone."
It's the most worrisome bit of pilot
ing Captain Zach' has had to handle
in many a day.
It has been understood Captain
Koenig planned to work his way
along the coast, north or south after
submerging, putting into some port
if forced to do so by the enemy
patrol. He desired to drive out into
the Atlantic, the moment he was
sure the patrol had been avoided.
The United States cruiser North
Carolina, assigned to neutrality duty,
was ordered in from the capes today,
indicating the belief of government
officials, at least, that danger of neu
trality violation has passeo.
The Deutschland appeared in the,
bay after spending the day in Tan
gier sound, thirty-five miies up, just
about sunset and was catting across
the capes as darkness began to fall.
She was displaying red and green
lights close to the water, but soon
put these out.
Approaching the Cape Henry light
ship the submarine moved in close
to shore and held hack while the
Timmins proceeded some distance
out, presumably to determine if hos
tile vessels were in sight. Presently
she signalled and the Deutschland
moved on past the cape. This was
about 9 o'clock.
The Deutschland drew near enough'
to her pilot tug to permit the shout
ing of farewells and the cheering for
America and then the rolling water
began to pile up between them. She
signalled briefly .with her periscope
light. Then that blinked oat and the
tug turned back to Norfolk.

8treet Car Strike.
NEW YORK, August 3.—Tie up of
1,291 cars that operate on the 450
miles of surface tracks of the New
York city railways within twenty-four
hours seemed certain shortly before
noon today when the conference call
ed by Mayor Mitchell between union
and company representatives failed to
reach an agreement. Eight thousand
men are affected.
Such an addition to the lines on
which strikes already have been de
clared would bring the total mileage
directly affected up to 1,010, the num
ber of cars up to 2,148 and the number
of men to 15,600.
Recognition of the Amalgamated

which th© conference struck a snag.
Union leaders Insisted on sach recog

admit the men are dissatisfied.

Grain Review.
CHICAGO, Aug. 3.—Strong cables
together with further reports of crop
damage in the northwest and Canada
were responsible for fractional gains
in the local wheat market today.
Realizing sales by longs were free at
the outset, but the demand was
strong enough to quickly force a rise.
September gained 1H at 131% today
over last night's dose. December
was up 1% at 135%. The total gain
in the last four days trading for each
month was eleven cents.
Corn prices were inclined to ease
after a firm start. Unloading by longs
offset good buying. September was
down at 79% December down
at 68%.
Oats* continued to make further
gains on wheat strength. September
up at 43 December up at 45%.

The Water Power Bill.
WASixixnGTON, August 3.—The hill
for control by the war department of
water power along navigable streams
may not be a part of the legislation
passed by this congress. The meas
ure now in conference is subjected to
the fire of radically different views
and President Wilson desires both
sides to get together before he sup
ports it. Senator Shields conferred
with the president today and after
ward said the president wanted the
water power bill, passed if possible,
but that other matters were more
pressing at this time.

Mules—Trade was on a but slightly
varied basis from, the previous day's
session, the bulk of demand, as usual,
centering on warriors. The supply
was about an average Tuesday one,
estimated at 250 head. These were
consigned largely for- the foreign
trade. A'few real choice cotton mules
changed hands, otherwise the domes
tic trade was lifeless.
The renewal of the French contract
for war mules has failed to stimulate
the trade in the fashion dealers pre
dieted. Fact Is, the inspectors are
after too much for the money.

Get 'High Price for Eggs#
There's a small group of fanners
near New Providence, Hardin county,
who are selling their eggs on the Chi
cago market these days for 24% cents
a dozen, while the prevailing price in
that community is but 18 cents. These
farmers are members of the Provi
dence Efeg Marketing association,
formed in May of this year.
This association, the second of its
kind to be formed in the United
States, was organized by Prof. H. A.
Bittenbender, extension poultryman
for Iowa State college.
organized the first one, the Black
hawk association near Waterloo. Al
ready the members are selling 12
cases of eggs a week.
The plan of this egg marketing as
sociation is to tmite its members for
producing eggs of a quality superior
to the average egg from the Iowa
farm, and then by selling through
the machinery of the association
make good their guarantee that the
eggs are superior.
Ironclad rules in regard to egg pro
duction are laid down, such as clean
nests, gathering twice a day In warm
weather, killing or confining all males
after the breeding season, keeping
eggs cool as possible, marketing twice
a week in summer* never washing
eggs, and marketing only those that
are the best.
In order that there may toe
no doubt
every egg sent out must be stamped
with the name or number of the mem*
ber who sells it. Then, in case of
trouble, the secretary of the associa
tion can fix the blame and make tne
member supplying it make good for
the bad egg.
