HIATT TELLS OF THE WORK BEING DONE AND THE PROGRESS OF ESCAMBIA COUN TY CROPS. : Farmers throughout the county have been busy the past two weeks making' hay. More attention has been given to saving forage for live atock this year than ever before, and is a good indication of the increased interest that is being manifested in this Industry throughout the county and State. Several new dairy barus built to house both cattle and feed have been erected recently. Now that the hay is practically all cut attention should be given to turn ing the stubble and trash left on the ground under good and deep and sow a. crop of oats or rye as soon a3 possi ble to be either cut for hay,-or turned under before planting time to enrich the soil. All indications point to the fact that both feed and fertilizer will be high in price and unless the farm ers of the South take advantajsj! of their opportunity to grow these crops, their next years" crop will be an ex. pensive one. Deep fall plowing, winter coxer crops, plenty of tame, a good home garden and the raising of meats for home use are the thing's first to be considered. So long as our truck farmers de tend on the local market and raise greens at from 20 cents to 40 cents per dozen and buy their provisions, even to condensed . milk that come from the north, and the cotton farm- r buying his corn and meat from ths same source, so long will hard times stare us in the face. Every effort s being put forth by the Department of Agriculture to change these con ditions. . Tae truck farmers In the Big Bayou section held a meet Wednesday i?ht and decided to order a large car 5. crushed limestone.

On May Day another successful play and crowning of May Queen proved Quite an event. Both parents and teachers feel very proud of the work done by the league during the past year and look-forward with renewed interest to the coming years work. Report of School No. 70. The Parents'-Teachers Association of School No. 70 held Its regular monthly meetings, with the exception of one meeting which owing to several good reasons was not held. The Association raised, during the term, enough money to buy quite a lot of material for. the use of the pu pils, purchased two see-saws costing $7.50, which has given a great deal of pleasure to the children; furnished the whole school with library paste for their art and construction work, and also met the expenses incidental to the Fair exhibit last Fall. The Association suffered a great loss in the death of Mrs. H, G. Howe who was a hearty supporter of the league, and helped always by her presence, and sympathy in the work. She will be greatly missed from our ranks. The Association plans to start the Fall term with a good membership, and hopes for a year of good and help ful work. Report of School No. 74.

The work accomplished being this: The discussion of papers Issued Dy the Federation of Women s clubs, the forming and maintaining of a class jin manual training and domestic an, jthe class consisting of about 60 mem- hers and a successful lawn party which will enable us to. buy a Victrola for the school Instead of having to rent e. piano. This will furnish music not only for the school but lor the meet ings of the league. Report of School No. 41. The league of School No. 41 has held regular meetings during the year with the exception of one meeting wnen tad weather prevented. These meetings have been both Interesting and good pleasant and profitable; programs being rendered generally resulted.

Kaiser, D. O. The most noticeable feature in the advancement of medical ' science has been the attitude it has taken with regard to health. We realize more and more each day the old Latin dic tum "In menss sane, in corpora sana" (Strong minds and strong bodies) and that prevention is greater than cure. Formerly, in the study of medicine, great stress was placed upon the study of diseases, today the emphasis is placed upon the study of methods of prevention of disease by means an tagonistic to their development. Among the many things which have teen learned in the study of hygiene and sanitation, has been that of bodily exercise. The human body is a most marvel ous piece of mechanism, and conse quently must be in perfect order to best fulfil the requirements of Its work. This can be advanced only byj giving our bodies the proper care and attention at all times. The most ..Important .structures of our bodies are its nerves and muscles, therefore we readily appreciate that these must 'oe developed and main tained by means of exercise properly administered. That the Young Men's expenses on Victrola and other sun dries about $9.25; cash on hand $20.80. Report of School No. 35. The Parent -Teachers' Association of School No. 35 has done splendid work for the past year. During the summer the "Board" placed a side walk and stone curbing on the South and East sides. When school assembled we saw that the grading of the school yard was the first work to demand our atten tion. At the October meeting the As sociation decided to devote the entire year In out-side improvements. The school yard was then graded and partially sodded. It was then thought necessary to place a wire fence on the northern boundary line In order to prevent the public from using grounds as a thoroughfare. This called for the planting ol climbing roses, honey-suckles and other vines by the fence In order to convert a necessity Into a thing of beauty. Thirty-five ornamental shrubs were then planted along tho entire stretch of fence. A rock border was tmllt around the vegetable garden on the west and the flower bed on the north. - The vegetable garden was a most re markable success, even surpassing our efforts of last year. The entire work of the garden was done by the child ren, forking before and after the school hours and during recesses. The dally calls of the neighbors for the fine lettucewas so great that a sum of $4.50 was realized for this vege- table alone. Our last and greatest improvement was the building of a large platform on the west side of building Report of School No. 27. The Home and School league of School No. 27 has grown wonderfully i during the past year. The member ship has increased from thirty-seven to fifty and most of these are active workers. At the beginning of the year we bought a Victrola with the money left from the preceeamg year. The balance was paid it. November with the money realised from a lawn fes tlvaL We drew up a petition to send to the commissioners to beg them to have water pipes laid as far as the Bayou, However. It was unnecessary for we got the water without the peti tion. Now we have a basin In the hall and two faucets in the yard. Such a relief after our old pump. ' At Easter time the league had full Charge of our annual egg bunt. No admission was charged. The child ren enjoyed themselves Immensely. This week we will hold our final meeting and then plans will be made for a picnic to be given after the close of school. . Water coolers, balls, bats ana otner suoDlIes have been donated oy tne league for use In the school. No dues ar chargea ana tne money In the treasury is from entertainments and donations.

In fact, the condition of and interest taken in the eCT InleX ff the progressiveness of the city in which it is located. President Wilson recently remarked, "You can test the modern community by the degree of its interest In its Young Men's Christ ian Association." On another occasion, a keen eyed business man, the guest of an automo bile manufacturer, while driving along the streets of a Michigan city, in quired, "What building is that," hie host replied, "It was planned for a Y. M. C. A., feut we couldn't get money enough to finish It." The guest then saidT "If that Is the kind of a city, you have, I do not care to engage In busi ness here, I do not care to bring my boys into a community which has not Interest enough in its coming man hood to support a Y. M. C. A." , Pensacola has a local Y. M. C. A. of which it may well be proud, seek ing to afford In every way the great est good to the greatest number and is adopting as rapidly as means will permit, every means to further the progress of the young men and boys of the community. The Department of Physical Education is not alone at- tempting to improva the bodily health or its membership, tout m addition is doing so according to the most modern and improved methods. Besides an ex cellent gymnasium, there has been recently installed a Turkish Bath and Massage Parlor, an institution of which Pensacola should be proud. It affords to the man in the office an opportunity to completely open the pores of the skin, and eliminate all waste, thereby preventing, relieving d overcoming colds, congestion, inflam- auon, etc., and through competent massage bringing the "body to a normal anj healthy condition. This latter department is open to all men whether members or not and its retention will depend upon Its appreciation and use by the community. When calling for these letters please say "Advertised.

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. The Hague, Nov. 1. According to recent reports in the German pr?ss not all the French fortifications are so strong as has been believed. Sev. eral of those which have been taken by Germans are said to have been in tiquated. . little effort to modernize them having been spent on them. A noteworthy example of this, and one which is rather tynical of what the Germans assert they have found, Is the case of Fort Lee Ayvelles, which, located almost due south of Mezieres- cnarievuie, guarded the bridges and fords of the Meuse in that locality. Describing what he saw in the fort after it had been occupied by the Germans, Henry Binder, war corres pondent cf the Berliner Tageblatt, 3ays in the issue of that paper of October 9 among other things: "All French forts along the Belgian border have been constructed witn 6uch carelessness that one can easil7 determine the degree to which the French depended upon their Belgian neighbor. Generally the forts were left in the state they had when built, and since the plan of their construc tion dates back to fifty years ago the strategical weakness of several or most of them is plain enough. "A typical example of this is Fort Lee Ayvelles which guarded the Nidges and fords of the Meuse south j rtf WA..Aar.,a1.11 .,, a? I tv, l1fv, inn, C' - L, VUlu JJL U1D Qi VU11U rlLU from our 21-centimeter mortars. The fort was built In 1878 and was armed with 40 pieces. Its main armament were two batteries of six guns each of 5-centimeter calibre, dating from the years of 1878 and 1880 and which had a range of only four kilometers (note: the range of even the smallest German siege pieces Is never less than eight kilometers). GUNS MADE IN 1884. "In addition there were found In the fort several 12-centimeter bronze guns which had been cast In 1884, while in the casemates we found several mi trailleuses and five-barrelled revolver guns which Tiad been Intended to sweep the moats. - In the fort were also found several old mortars from the year 1842 old muzzleloaders with the typical pyramids of round canon- balls beside them -guns of a type we use In our villages to fire salutes. "The fort showed neglect every where. Not alone was its armament antiquated and primitive, but the management before and during the a tack must have been defective. The road to the fort had been blocke-d merely by felled trees and an occa sional barbed -wire entanglement, and trees before one of the batteries of the forts made It necessary to replace it after our troops had arrived. To do this a winch had to be used. But they succeeded only in getting one of the pieces into position. This iruti was intended to serve against aircraft about the fort, and an effort had bcei. made to give it the necessary hi?h- angle elevation by digging a trench around it in which the limber rested.- Even at that the elevation secured i was insufficient. "Our artillery bombarded the fort from a northwesterly direction and worked with a precision that would be hard to equaL One of the battenes in the fort had been put out of actljn by a bull's-eye shot for each piece, and in other cases the barrel of' the gun had been torn from the carriage, leaving a scrap heap of barrel, wheels, limber parts and masonry. One of the barrels had dents four centime ters deep where fragments of our bursting shells had hit It. "In this "helpless cage' a garrison of about 900 men had been statlonoi. It is understood, that the men fled as soon as fire was opened by ojr artillery. Instead of placing this force in trenches they depended upon this poor position with the result that their defeat was complete morally and phy sically. "There Is the grave of the poor com mandant who witnessed the futile struggle and then siw his men utter ly routed by a numerically superior enemy. The poor man ended his life. Simple German soldiers nave honored this deed by a massive cross of wood upon which they painted In good let tering the words: ' 'Here rests the brave commandant. He found it Impossible to survive the fall of the fort in his charge. R, I. P.

As a result of the war there has been a more or less disar rangement of business and fi nance, but It ia now well In band and will entirely stop as soon as peace Is In eight and that should be soon. This war has given the United States a greater opportunity to increase Its foreign trade than any other country has ever h-td.
