Great Britain Maintaining 7,500,000 Men LORD NORTHCLIFFE IN The Forum. It does not seem to be generally known in this country that up to the time of tlie United States entering the struggle, Great Britain had not only borne the ex pense of maintaining seven and a half million fighting men of her ow, but had carried a large portio of the financial burden of her allies. I do not exagger ate it when I say that prior to ydur com ing into the war we had most willingly advanced six billions of dollars, that we are still advancing large stims daily to them, and that our war expenses are at the rate of $35,000,000 a day. As to the length of the war. we should more properly speak of the wars. Those who have not closely studied this great earthquake since its inception at the time of Frederick the Great, are inclined to compare it with struggles that are by comparison small affairs. Yet your own f ml War, in which neither side had any great preparation, lasted more than four years. Now this series of wars find the maker of the wars prepared to the minutest de tail. He is opposed by those who are de termined that he shall not rule the world, ue. his opponents, are even now in a state of preparation. You have had ob ject lessons in the past few weeks of the depth of the roots of this great conspir acy against the world’s peace. You have seen the great and prosperous state of Argentina thrown into a position of chaos by a word from Beilin. Prussia has penetrated everywhere. It poisoned the chancellories and parlia ments of Europe and tainted the appar ently open, if troubled, streams of com merce. It adapted itself to all exigencies. In Spain it was Catholic, in Holland it was Protestant, in Turkey, as we have seen, it was frankly Mohammedan, in Greece,,, it helped a king to overrule a chamber of representatives. Recent events in Mexico, some of your own ana our own labor troubles, uprisings among the wild folk of our Indian frontier—no place was too remote, no cause too ab surd, to escape the mesh of German in trigue. m m The Augusta Herald Delivered to Your Company Street At Camp Hancock.

TRENCH AND CAMP Coming to the conditions of the actual war, we find a remarkable unanimity of thought and purpose between the Kaiser, the Junkers and the mass of the people. We find the food situation in Germany and Austria distinctly better than it was a year ago. The capture of supplies in Rumania, no less than the extension of cultivable areas throughout the lands of the Central Powers, has re lieved the tension in cereals and garden produce. GOTT FOR MASCOT The 112th regimeht, has a real mas cot at last —It’s a goat. “William B. Goat” is the official designation that Colonel Richards has give him ever since he first made his appearance at the corral, behind the shower bath row, a few days ago. For weeks the commanding officer of the 112th had been in search of a goat for the regiment ,and every time he saw one that he liked, it was not for sale. A few afternoons ago he was in- BOLYARDS BARBER SHOP 221 Bth St. A modern shop with 12 experi enced Barbers and efficient ser vice. Located on Jack son street, below Genesta Hotel.

McKnight Speer, one of the prosperous residents of Au gusta’s farm lands, and at the barbe cue Colony Richards was presented with a handsome goat, which is half Angora. Masters Dick and John Speer, little sone of the host, made the pre sentation, and writing to them a few days later, Colonel Richards said: “William B. Goat” arrived safe at camp and has ben introduced to my horses, ‘Comrade’ and ‘Captain Jenks.’ He did not express himself as to what liis opinion was of them, but I think “A Complete Drug Store” We Have Many Things a Soldier Needs Shaving Equipment A clean face is very essential.

If from the way ’Captain snarled at him, it will take some little time for them to become real fast and close friends. ‘Comrade’ appears to think very well of him, and I expect that he and William will get along fine. ’ So when Bill is sufficiently broken into the army game, there is no doubt but what he will take part in many a hike ovi Southern roads.
