V; FALL OF STATUE ENDS HUN LUCK Quaint Legend of Albert Madon na, Distorted by Germans, Has Sequel. TRICK OF PARISH PRIEST When Virgin of Albert Was Dethroned the Huns From Being Truculent Conquerors Were Forced to Knees in Submission. London.—All the world knows the story of the Madonna which was dis lodged by German shell fire from Its perch on the tower of the parish church at Albert during the first mad rush of the Huns through France in 1914. The statue did not fall, nor was It greatly damaged, but the base was so shattered that It hung precariously over the main road from Amiens to Bapaume, which passes under the very walls of the beautiful old church. For some reason, when the red tide of war swept westward through Albert, the Hun did not complete the destruc tion of the tower, and the statue still maintained Its strange poise after the Invaders had been rolled back at the battle of the Marne. Days of Great Hope. Those were the days of great hope, France was fighting with skill and de termination. Britain was steadily in wonderful creasing her small but army, and the Russians were advanc ing almost at a gallop through East Prussia. In fact, there were optimists who thought Germany would sue for peace before Christmas—Christmas, 1914 ! Some hint of the trend of popu lar thought was given by the quaint conceit which grew up In the hearts of the people, namely, that when the Vlr gin of Albert fell (as fall she must, In the opinion of all who saw the statue) the war would end In a victory for Prance and her allies. But the war did not end, nor did the statue fall, j and the opposing armies settled down | to nearly four years of trench war- | fare, with the odds greatly in favor of the Hun, and success constantly at- I tending his efforts and those of his ill omened helpers, the Turks. The Germans, who certainly never miss a point In their efforts to under mine their opponents' morale, seized on the legend. Varying It to suit their purpose they spread the story far and wide that when the statue fell France would lose the war. Now, the town of Albert possesses a most patriotic and efficient parish priest. No sooner did the Hun version of the story reach his ears than he sought out a skilled i blacksmith. The two ascended the half-ruined tower, surveyed the brpken base, and so braced and riveted the statue to its recumbent position that fall It could not until the tower itself gave way. Hun Again in Albert. So for many a day every British Tommy who marched to the front along the road to Bapaume raised his wondering eyes to the Madonna high above his head and few there were any denomination who failed to find in its strange attitude a species benign benediction. At last, during black days of last March and April, the seemingly impossible' hap pened. The British line bent before th e f ur y 0 f a German assault, aided was still intact, but, whether by ac cldent or design is not yet known, the Germans brought down the tower, and with it fell the virgin and child. And here comes the strange part of the story, to which latest development public attention is now directed the first time. Hardly a yard farther did the German advance progress. From that day onward the green gray hordes were pressed back, slowly at first, but with an ever-increasing ce lerity which finally developed to a rout. In a word the luck of the Huns deserted them when the Virgin of Al bert was dethroned. From being the truculent conquerors of nearly all Eu rope they were forced to their knees whining for mercy. The foregoing tacts cannot be gainsaid. Viewed in retrospect they form one of the most curious and interesting episodes of the greatest of all wars. as it was by long-continued fog, and the Hun was once again in Albert. When the British retired the statue tor Is Last Person to Hear of End of War While j; Manchester, Conn, many local citizens were claim ing the honor of being the first ^ to hear locally of the news of *■> the signing of the armistice In Prance, Dr. W.

T ( 1 WOMAN BOSSES MINE Heads Corporation Controlled En tirely by Her Sex. Operates Garnet Mine in Alaska and Lead, Zinc and Silver Mires in Arizona. New York.—From the far West there now comes to us the lady miner, Miss Anna Durkee, organizer and con trolling element of a $1,000,000 cor poration run entirely by women. Miss Durkee operates a garnet mine in southern Alaska and lead, zinc and sll ver afi nes la Arizona. She is the lar E es t individual mine owner in the Oat 111011 district of Arizona, and the most widei y kn <>wn woman In the mining world. It was while she was In Alaska seven years ago, investigating a proposition copper, came Interested In a garnet mine, was given an option on It and finally took It over In the name of a corporation which had a board of 1? women dlrec tors. At the beginning the mine did not seem to amount to a great deal, but as Miss Durkee began to develop the first claim with which the corporation started, veins were discovered opening out In every direction, and as the work continued the amazing fact dawned that the entire mountain was a gigan tic mine of the beautiful crystals, with ledges of garnets extending from the sea level to a distance of 3,600 feet op the mountain aide. But the greatest value of the deposit consists in a by-product of garnet waste, discovered by Miss Durkee, who passed two years In a chemical laboratory working it out. She had observed that garnets when milled did not fuse with Iron or brass, and follow ing this up, she discovered a new use for the waste garnet, of which there were hundreds of thousands of tons. 'Ground to a certain mesh and put through a secret process the waste gar net makes a separating powder valu able in foundry work," she stated. The garnets of Miss Dnrkee's mine are of the finest variety, almandines. Because of their beauty and hardness, geologists have given them the name of "precious garnets." ****************** CONTRIBUTION BOX * * **************** Perkins says that the Y. M. C. A. has $100,000,000.00 unexpended. Pres ident Wilson wants $100,000,000.00 to feed starving Europe. Why not turn that problem over to the Y. M. C. A., and see if they can not give better satisfaction than they seem to have given in the war? This would also give some work to the 5000 secretaries now in training in the United States, for over-seas duty . GUY W. WOLFE.
