Quaint Legend of Albert Madon
na, Distorted by Germans,
Has Sequel.
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
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

as it was by long-continued fog, and
the Hun was once again in Albert.

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

It was while she was In Alaska seven
years ago, investigating a proposition
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
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."
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,
