The outstanding feature seems to be "Happy" Graff, nrd th hi rr et auto-drome we have ever seen; "Happy" held his audience upoll bound with hi daring feat . while tilling 11 motorcycle at break-neck speed on tho perpendicular walls. The big 3-a-broast merry-go-round anil the monster Ferris wheel were well patronized ly the old and .voting nlke. The minstrel show has twelve performers who put on a good per formance. Th Western caliaret is another show of merit featuring the Walkers, a team of high-class artists. There are other numerous attrac tions which altogether make the Flynn Shows one of the best we have had here for some time. The carnival will continue all week. American Weight in France. On the occasion of the anniver sary of our declaration of war the German press emphasized the fact that our troops have taken little part in the fighting, and that the future will see no great American strength. An official French dispatch says that the articles seems to have two ideas, one to free the submarine warfare of the responsibility of America's en trance and the other, to discount the strength of the United States. A dispatch from Switzerland notes a change of opinion on the' part of Capt. Persius, the wall known mili ary critic, and advocate of unre stricted u-boat warfare. He admits that "we were at first a great deal persuaded to under estimate the par nation of America in the war. We cannot for the moment estimate when: the United . States will have ready the melons .of men .which, her population will permit her to raise, but it is certain that America will in the very nar future succeed in raising an amazing army, which in any case, will constitute a very val uable aid for our enemies." While the press may depreciate the weight of America's manhood it is perfectly true, as said by Lloyd George that the Americans are go ing to give the Prussian junta the surprise of their lives Just ' when the surprise is scheduled to ;take place, we do not know, but it is al icady on the book of future events and will certainly occur some day. Report to Surgeon General Shows Heelth Conditions Good in Camps- The healtl of troops in the Unit ed States continues very good, ac cording to a recent report to the Surgeon General of the Army by the Division of Field. Sanitation. Admission, noneffective and death rates are somewhat higher than the last report, due chiefly to prevalence of influenza and bronchitis with complicating pneumonia, in many of our northern camps. Nati nal Army camps continue to continue with remarkably low rates. Very few new cases of measles and meningitis have occurred. National Army camps contitnue to have high sick rates as compared with camps of other groups, though' the lates are lower than la?t report. Scattering cases of measles are re ported from all campsl Atk Bid on Laundry.
