Berlin.-Grand Admiral von Koes ter, president of the German Navy ! League, in an address at Kiel Uni versity, discussed the considerations I governing the part that is to be play- 4 ed by the German navy in the pres ent war. He declared that the relative strength of the German fleet - com pared to'the Anglo-German fleet is perhaps one to four. The British, he added, perhaps es- 4 timated German lust for battle so I highly that they had said to them- 1 selves, "Sdme day they will come and we shall be able to assume battle in I I a situation favorable for us." "That the offensive 'spirit of the I fleet is greater than that of the Brit ish." the admiral continued, "can just ly be assumed when one recalls that l the Germans took an offensive against England's east coast, whereas, the English have not dared to approach the German coast. ' "We are full of the frmest confi dence in our fleet." said Von Koester. "but we know that a sea battle means death or victory, and that a destroyed Sfleet cannot be replaced inthe course Sof the war, even it it lasts for years. "We must, thertfore, under all con ditions, be cautious in our procedure and allow ourselves to be incited to no deed which might eventuate in'our defeat. SItaly Gets Much Wheat From America.

LOSSES ARE VERY HEAVY If Russians Can Follow Up Their Ini tial Success Position cf Germans Before Warsaw Will Be Extinct. London.-The battle now in prog ress between 35 and 40 miles from Warsaw is the hardest fought and most costly in life of any during the war. Many military authorities here say that the formation in which the Germans are attacking is more solid than any record in the history of or ganized warfare. Along a narrow front of seven miles, near Borjimow, they concentrated 80. 000 men and 600 guns, and after two days' furious bombardment with as phyxIating shells, they advanced upon the Russian lines in a dense forma tion, 10 men deep, evidently hoping to conquer by sheer weight of numbers. Some part of the Prussian guards were brought up and employed in this ter rific attack, with orders from the n kaiser himself to break through the d Russian line at any cost. r. Under the eyes of the czar the Rus ilans gained a signal success. Not on ly were the German attacks repulsed 1, with enormous loss, but the Russians ip themselves took the offensive, struck , the Germans' left flank, crossed the little river Bzura at its mouth by the 1, Vistula and took Dakhova, just about is Sochacrew, capturing a German bri gade. if they can follow up this stroke the position of the Germans before Warsaw will be critical. While the Germans with three.quar ters of their forces along the Bruam continued to hammer at the Russiah line, the Russians threw their forces across the Bsura at Kamion, near the IS ±unction of the Bzura, with the Vis tula, and captured the German fortified position. At the same time they drove the Germans across the Baura at Dak hova. close to Sochaczew. Is- At Kamion the Russians captured ry steel bullet-proof shields, a number of 11. quick-firing guns aid in this district as and on the upper Rawka River they y. captured several German outposts.

A campaign to dispel the spectre or hard times and to prepare the way tor the inevitable flush times ahead, is what President P. J. (lhapp~!is and his board of directors of the Southwest Louisiana Development Bureau are preparing to undertake. The head quarters of the Bureau are established at Lafayette and its territory em braces thirteen parishes. (Cc Discussing the proposed "Prosperity Campaign Tour,' which it is proposed to begin in Acadia, W. C. Chevis, who for the past year has been manager of the Bureau, said: "Perhaps no section of the United be States was hit harder by adverse con ditions than was Southwest Louisiana. Nevertheless, our people did not m ground their arms and surrender, but on the contrary, got together at a great meeting in Lafayette in October, 1913, and organized the Southwest De velopment Bureau. "The first year of the Bureau's work di i has full justified its existence, and he fwhile no spectacular displays nave " been made the Bureau has led in the - awakening of the people and in inau d gurating the splendid work of crop dt. versification, live stock breeding, the at ºf stamping out of Charbon, cattle ticl: e and hog cholera, the promotion of no drainage and improved highways, the tu Lr voicing of the popular sentiment in fa g vor of more and better rural agricul- as D tural schools, and a hundred other or e. things, which have tended to the im- vii h provement of the business and agricul ie tural interest of that section. M rt "Southwest Louisiana must now be a - prepared with her quotadof grain and ci' feed stuffs, with cattle and hogs and at In poultry and dairy products, to meet ca al the over-whelming demand by the war- in V. ring nations, for these things which vi 11 will probably command the highest le prices ever known outside of war to id times in this country. In order to 1i to prepare for that our people must meet the situation with a compact working b( 'd organization whereby tiper activities "i 'may be readily concentrated and di- I is rected upon points where the greatest gt n- advantage may be gained." The local W. C. T. U. has started a at campaign to drive liquor out of Baton hi Rouge. The organization is circulat ing a petition asking the police jury It to call an election to submit 'the ques- C( tion of parish-wide prohibition to the 8l people. Every other ward in East al Baton Rouge except the first and see- sl oid, comprising the city already is dry. The organization believes that the le o. county could carry the issue over the a heads of the city voters, should they oppose prohibition. t.

"Going to be married?" echoed Barry Miles. Ned King nodded triumphantly. "Sure as fate," he smiled. "I'11 hold you to your old promise, Harry; you'll be my best man?" Barry thrust out a friendly hand. "Of course, you can count on me, old man? Copgratulations-and who is the girl?" Ned reddened, but his eyes were bold. "Della Adams," he said carelessly. Barry whitened and all the light died out of his face. "Della Adams?" he repeated in a curious tone. "You are to be congratulated indeed, Ned!" "Thanks Barry. Remember, it's to be a very quiet affair-perhaps a dos en guests. Next Wednesday evening j at seven-and you're to be best man!" Slarry did not wince now. "I shall not forget," he said gravely as he turned away. Was Ned King his friend? Barry asked himself this question over and over as he made his way toward the village hotel. Surely Ned had known that Barry Miles, the young salesman for a whole e sale grocery firm in a neighboring city, was In love with Della Adams, 1 and Della could have told Ned, if she t cared to listen to something especially interesting when Barry paid his next h visit to Grasston. t Meanwhile, Ned King had hurried r toward the Adams house and told 0 Della of the best man arrangement. t "Nid! You asked him, Barry, to q be your best man?" she faltered s "Why not? He was willing. Said I- I was a lucky chap to get you-and I it guess I am," confidently. Della smiled strangely. "I'm going to send you home now, Ned. It we a are to be married next Wednesday I n have a thousand things to do." t. Della watched nim striding down y the village street, his stocky figure s. covering the distance in absurdly long e steps.
