Another group of Bel gian farmers who had taken refuge in Holland when the German troops In vaded their country have departed on their way to tho southern States of the United States to take new homes there. The men, who were accompan ied by their wives and generally by numerous children, were all selected on account of their ability as cultiva tor by William H.
