Since April 1 German submarines
have been equipped with four new
devices which increase their de
structiveness. and render it more dif
ficult for chasers to discover their
whereabouts. Formerly the U-boats
to remain in one spot, had to come
to the surface, or anchor themselves
to the bottom: but four small pumps
are now used which enable them to
remain stationery while submerged
This not only conserves fuel, but pre
vents its enemies from hearing the
throb of the submarine’s propellers.
Telescopic periscopes give further as
sistance to the submarine in conceal
ing its position. A mixture of oxy
gen and strained gas is now used in
the engines, and the exhaust is wash
ed free of smoke and broken into
small bubbles, which do not leave a
wake. Finally, new listening devices
enable it to hear and judge the size
of ships at a considerable distance.

Letter From Artist in Trenches Tells
How Russians Face Death in
Fierce Fighting.
The Paris Figaro contains many let
ters from Russian soldiers who. before
the war began, were residents in Paris.
One. an artist, thus describes a scene
one evening before orders were car
ried out by the regiment to make a
move in the rear. At a certain place
on the Russian front the gassing from
the enemy became unendurable, large
ly because of the weak location of the
Russian trench. To remain where the
regiment was was to court certain suf
focation. To retire meant volleys of
shells. It was resolved to retire. A
few minutes were given for Ivan—the
Russian boys—to prepare.
“One of them,” writes the Figaro’s
correspondent, “took from his breast
a cross and kissed it three times.
Then, looking toward the dark sky. re
peated the sacred words, mother, fa
ther and wife. He replaced the cross
in his breast, and said, quietly, “I am
ready.” He was the first to fall under
the merciless fire of the enemy. An
other soldier, not long in the trenches,
and speaking with an eastern accent,
knelt in the cold, damp trench, and
went through his devotions. “It will
uc raruri, 11c eaiu, ivi v iv uic muu
Ivan here. I have no one to care for
But he got through the scrimmage
to our rear trench. Such are the for
tunes of the trench in this eastern
fight. f
Many Noted Writers and Painters
Have Found Calm and Quiet Con
ducive to Best Work.
The brain can apply Itself and work
far better at night than at any other
time is the conclusion to which Albert
Cirn has arrived in his treatise of the
subject in a recent number of the
French magazine La Kevue.
The reasons upon which he has
based his conclusion are, first, that
you do not risk being disturbed by
telephone, visitors. Janitors or cooks;
second, that there is a calm and si
lence at night which Is most propitious
to thought, a calm which reigns nearly
everywhere and at that time envelops
one; and. third, there is no incom
moded noise at night.
He cites the cases of authors who i
wrote only at this time; George Sand, j
: for instance, whose favorite hours were
i from midnight to 4 a. m.; M. Llttre,
who works at night and does his dig
ging and delving in lexicons In the day.
Balzac was another nightworker and
’ when he was forced to work by day i
i he invariably drew the blinds and lit
' The candles to fool himself into heller
lag It night. He went to bed generally
at 6 ground was called at midnight,
Painterli. M. Cim says, find night
conducive to work. Here he cites the
rase of Guodet. .

Special Eyeglasses for Divers.
A new eyeglass has been patented
for the use of submarine diver*. It is
well known that the human eye does
not function properly under water, ob
jects appearing badly blurred and dis
torted. This is due to the fact that
the speed of light in water is different
from the speed of light in air, and
hence the light rajs enter the eye with
a different angle of reflection. The
eye. being designed for focusing rays
coming through the nir. is unable to
focus rays coming through the water.
The condition is analogous to that of
defective eyes which are unable to fo
cus properly ordinary light rays in the
air. It may be similarly corrected by
the use of special lenses, with the help
of which the diver can see as clearly
under water as in the air.
Policewomen in Britain.
War has drawn women Into police
Service in England. In eight or nine
cities policewomen have been Installed
as part of the regular force. The po
licewoman is in large demand in the
munition factories, where, owing to the
presence of many women, she performs
many functions such as detective,
chaperon, welfare worker and watch
man, but in the main in these plants
her work is of a preventive and protec
tive nature, serving the young people
of her own sex.
Secret Service Costs Big Money.
Great Britain’s service now costs
£.r>00,000 a year, an increase of £400,000
since the beginning of the war. The
increase in the cost of the secret serv
ice department was greatest during the
last fiscal year—£120.000 over and
above the estimated amount to run it
being required.
Derivation of "Germany."
“German” and “Germany” come from
the I.atin Geritianlcug and Germania,
which were the Roman names for the
* XT'! urn hi* nmi lily'll vuuihi j, i ur wi»i u.*
are supposed to be from a Celtic root
which some say meant “shouters” and
others say meant “neighbors.” The
Germans call themselves “Deutsch,"
which Is from the same root as
“Dutch” and “Teuton." The root
meant “of the people" or “belonging to
the people," £nd may have been the £*
sult of ari hffort to pyt Into barbarian
^ortgue Greek word ethnikos, mean
ing tne same thing, “of the people" or
’^iciah^. ¥Tie "relation between
and “Teyton” is more easily
seen when we consider that “Deutsch"

If you plant corn front stalks thal
have suckers, that is what you will
raise. Like begets like. Select
your corn seed from the stalk as it
stands, so you will know its parent

Short, thick, storm-proof stalks
with ears that grow low are the
right kind for the central and south
ern states. Get your seed from such
stalks because slender, top-heavy
stalks are likely to mean loss.

Seed ears from the best producing
stalks in the field produce more than
seed ears apparently as good, but

a Paris dispatch says the French

places and amusements of all sorts,

also food, staples, gas, etc. “If you
