ADVANCE OF GERMANS LIKE

By PHILIP GIBBS,

Amiens on wooded heights, and

the right was commanded by General
A Million on the Move.
On Sunday afternoon fighting was
resumed along the whole line. The
German vanguard by this time had
been supported by a fresh army corps,
which had been brought from Bel
At least 1,000,000 men were on the
move, pressing upon the allied forces
with a ferocity of attack which has
never before bWen equaled. Their
cavalry swept across a great tract of
country, squadron by squadron, like
the mounted hordes of Attila, but

Their artillery was in enormous
numbers and their columns adv*iaced

but rather like a adoving nation--I do
not think, however, with equal pres

itself into a battering ram with a

e LOUISIANA RICE
ONE EFFECT OF EUROPEAN WAR
WILL BE TO BOOST RICE
j Western Newspaper Union News Service.
rts New Orleans.--Louisiana rice boost
be ed by the war, will reach record prices
or this year, due to the demand from
tropical countries. Cuba will be one
ng of the best customers, while demands
of have come from as far as Venezuela
Fn and other countries.
of Figures show that people living in
,U. tropical countries consume 100 pounds
'hr a year, while the average American
v- eats but six pounds. As the result
of w4h a demand from tropical countries
m- the crop will fade into insignificance
no matter how large. So far only the
ng river rice has been 'harvested. This
et- was of fine grade and brought a good
nit price. Next month the crops of south
on west Louisiana will be harvested if
Bn rains do not interfere too badly.
The Bguropean nations at war also
are expected to demand American
LA rice. As a result by October 1 the
lines of demand will be very well
known and the growers who have a
a strong selling organization will reap
a harvest on even the graded that
generally take second place. North
ern buyers are already complaining
about the price which is considered
a good sign.

S, to sell at a big advance.
in Consensus of expert opinion is that
re Louisiana has only about 65 per cent
of the normal acreage in sugar, and
as that, as many planters, on account
it of the reduction of the tariff, could
in not raise money to fertilize or pay
n- labor to cultivate as thoroughly as
re usual, the crop yield will be about
.r 50 per cent of Louisiana's normal crop,
a. say 150,000 tons, as a minimum yield.
a- Since the 1st of August, the rise in
in the price of sugar has been nearly .03,
et ceigs per pound, $60 per ton, which
y, would mean $8,000,000 or $9,000,000

when the beet-sugar crop of both
I France and Germany were cut short
