The, heroes of the story books are ever in a pose, They always die with words of high and lofty verse or Prose; But wheu the old Tuscania went down with flying flag Our khaki gang of heroes sang a gay and foolish rag! "Where do we go from here, boys, where do we go from here?" Across the eea the melody came dancing free and clear They faced their fate with souls elate and hearts that knew no fear. With "Where do we go from here boys, where do we go from here " be danger it would be out of shape if needed. There would be danger in pumping: local river water into the water sys tem. We drank disolved fish in days gone by. Who wants any more of it? Instead of putting , more money into pumps for thieves to dismantle why not concen trate on further development of the gravity system? Even at its lowest stage this summer, before river water was tken at Thorn Hollow the gravi ty system delivered into th reservoirs at Pendleton 1,750, 000 gallons of pure water daily, whereas the old pumping project formerly in use pro vided but one million gallons daily. A gravity water system that does- so well under the ad verse conditions prevailing this year and the delays experienc ed in getting additional water cannot be fairly classed as a failure. FRENCH AIRMEN GET 184 ENEMY PLANES IN JULY WASHINGTON. Aug. 24. lHirinff the month of July, French aviators shot down forty five enemy machines within the allied lines and 13i be hind the enemy lines, according to an official dispatch received Monday from France. In the siime period, forty nine observation balloons were set on fire. The dispatch summarizing the work of the French aviation arm of the month, shows that 490,380 Mlov (more than 535 tons of explosives were dropped upon German fortifi cations, lines and communication and towns in 1,665 flights. Losses in French airplanes in the month of July were only half the number lost by the enemy, while only one-third as many French balloons were destroyed as German. The importance of the work of aerial photography during a major of fensive is shown by the statement that 20,950 negatives were taken dur ing July 5. THE BELLEAU WOOD FIGHT It is a tale whose wondrous thrill we all of us can share. When brave men meet their destiny with spirit de bonair. What foe can hope with boys to cope who sing, when death is near, Where do we go from here, boys, where da we go from here " Berton iiralcv in- Life. THE GRAVITY SYSTEM SAFER IS II insurance rates in Pendle ton oft a condition that the old pumping plant bd main tained as an auxiliary it is strange that no request for the maintenance of the pump plant was ever made to the water board the body in official charge of the water works. If in addition the underwrit ers paid so little heed to the subject that they allowed the pumping machinery to be sold and the pump plantto be out of patch" with which they use lur tour jeans witnoui a protest it does not appear they were greatly concerned over the matter. Therefore the present de mand for the refitting of the pumping station naturally ar ouses surprise and more or lessi resentment. Suspicion is cre ated that the city is not being given a square deal and that some people are more interest ed in increased premiums than in increased fire protection. With an abundant supply of water assured from the Chap lish and Thorn Hollow springs, not to mention the river at that point, if needed, there is every reason to anticipate that our big reservoirs may be kept fill ed continuously. If so they, plus our good fire department, are the best fire defense we can obtain. The reservoirs arelr..Qv ar, ih fear nf capable of holding as muchUncle Sam into the hearts of water as the old pumping plantjthe H who have been ghaky could pump in 43 hours. An in-their morale ever 8ince. auxiliary pump plant would be; when the fu,, st can be a weak reliance. There would written it win be better read- . iing than anything that has ! come out of the war. St. Louis CASTO R jPost-Diatch For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Years Always bears th Suinatura of ACTS are coming out about the great fight the Americans made at Bel- leau Wood that promises to make the name stand out in the annals of the world war and in American history as the fight at Thermopylae stands out in the records of Grecian hero ism. At Belleau Wood, says Rep resentative Olney of Massa chusetts, 10,000 American ma rines, flanked by four regi ments of American regulars, saved Paris by refusing to re treat before a dozen or 15 Prus sian' regiments. We all re member how, just before that turning .point, the German hordes had advanced, day after day, near and near Pans, until it filled our hearts at home here with foreboding and we looked with anxiety for some sign of a stand against the in vading flood. Belleau Wood was the turning of the tide. Of the operation at Belleau Wood, Premier Clemenceau, who visited the American front on the following day, said, in complimenting the American troops on the "neatness and dis- had done the job, that it was pe culiarly American in concep tion, plan and execution." It was at Belleau Wood that a 19-year old American boy, with his right arm rendered useless by a bullet, drew his automatic and covered five Germans. After they threw down their arms, as he was al so wounded in the leg, he com pelled them to make a litter and carry him back to his post command. And it was at Bel- lleau Wood that Private Frank P. Lennert of Chicago, single handed, took 83 Germans cap tive and marched them back in a bunch, refusing to give them up to a detail assigned to look after prisoners, remarking that they were his meat. Belleau Wood put new cour age into the weary British and Hun Troop Morale Shattered by Allied Firing; Superiority WITH THE FRENCH ARMIES IN FRANCE, Aug. 28. Further evidence has been gathered that the victories of the allies have affected consider ably the morale of German troops. The cause of the depression, which i3 quite general among the prisoners, is the conclusion that they have realized that the allies' artillery tactics are far superior to theirs. They attribute their defeat to the success of the French encircling their strong est positions and in well directed and concentrated artillery fire. Dissensions neem to have arisen be tween different elements of the Ger man army, which has resulted in bit ter recriminations. The bulk of the Jnvigny plateau is In the hands of the French. French cavalry patrols crossed the Ailette to day, altho the Germans resisted des perately. ' been no time to coiulruct permanent defenses.

"No changes have been made in our peace program" Paid Baron Burton, Aus-tro-Hungarian foreign minuter, in proclaiming here the result of the recent conference at German great headquarters. "If we are compelled to continue a war of defense we must still continue to make use of every means that could lead ua to peace," said the baron- Ir. AV. & Solf, German seeretry of state for the colonies, has declared that Belgium must rise as an Inde pendent state after the war. "The only thing that keepa her In chains Is our enemies' will to war." he said In a public address. PROMISED STRIKE AT VLADIVOSTOK PROVES FIZZLE VLADIVOSTOK, Aug. 2$. The threatened general strike has resolved itself into a partial strike by printers, dock workers and casual Ih borers, who demand the release of the im prisoned Soviet deiagates, held as hostages by the Czecho-Slovaks, and the expulsion of Gen. Horvath, the anti-Bolsheviki leader. The strikers denounce the Czecho Slovaks for abolishing the Soviet Government and the Entente Allies for "establishing a military dictator ship.' Majority of the labor unions have adopted resolutions refusing lo par ticipate in the strike. U. S. "WAR CRAZE" BLAMED BY HUNS AMSTERDAM, Aug. 27. Comment Ing on the recent interview given out by Admiral con Hintze, the German foreign secretary. In which he laid re sponsibility for continuation of the war upon the entente, the Frankfort Gazette says: "We must continue the hard and bitter struggle for the defense of tho fatherland. "Any sign of desire for an under standing of the part of the European allies is counterbalanced by the war craze of the United States. In such circumstances there Is nothing to be done but to repress all premature hopes and arm ourselves with courage for the next developments-' ENEMY CLAIMS TO HAVE WON TANK BATTLE E OGfl For a TAXI MY TltlS AUK Al.l. -NKW All Ijeenel privers.

C, in Extension Bulletin No, 2lY. just Issued. ! 19 Some of the Important poluts in silo construction brought out are as follows: The foundation should be well con structed and should be of Coucreae, possessing the greatest possible doit sity, so as to prevent the silage' juice from seeping through Into the tarn yard. The top of tho foundation should be at least ten Inches a bove the ground line- The walls of the silo should be practically air-tight. The inner surfaces of tho walls should be smooth and perpendicuplar. The Inner surfaces of the walls should be free from corners; hence round silos are more efficient and economical than other types. A good roof makes the silo more durable; adds greatly to Its appear ance and assists materially In keep ing the silage from drying out. The bulletin is entitled, "A Silo for Every Farm," and may be had for the asking. WESTMINSTER ABBEY STRUCK BY ZEP BOMB AX ATI-ANTIC PORT. Aug. 27.- Westminster Abbey was struck squarely by a bomb dropped during a Zeppelin raid over London, August 1, but the bomb failed to"exploe, ac cording to Norman O.

"Evap oration of Fruits and A'egetables In the Home," is the title of Extension Bulletin No. 2D6, just off the press, in which A. F. Harss. asitant profes sor of pomology, gives sufficiently de tailed Information to enable anyone to construct and operate an evapora tor and to evaporate sut Isfactorlly most of the fruits and vegetables used in the average home. The object in evaporation is to pre serve the fruits and vegetables through removal of moisture and t-i 1 do this with as little change from the fresh state as possible in taste-. dor, nutritive qualities ami general ap pearance. The "principle upon whlh the pro cess of evaporation is based Is that by removing enough of the moisture present in fruits and vegetables, the organisms which cause food to spoil cannot livo und guv, thus bringing about preservation. Kvaporatlnn will also arrest the nrttural processes of ripening and decaying.
