NOISE ACCOMPANIES ATTACK Yank Engineers Go About Unperturbed While Rescuing Injured- Victims Are Sent to the Sisters of the Poor. Washington. Writing of a German oir raid on Paris, one of the American Red Cross inspectors gives a thrilling account of how American troops and iieu cross workers give aid to the city in such desperate moments. He de scribes an air raid in this fashion: "Nowhere is there any sound but the ,u,u.w luoisreps. iNot a street liht ,be seen not a single ray of light nthlng but the inkiest and most im- l't-iieuuuie aarKness. Then all of the noise in the world seems to break loose. Ciang-clang-clang booms the tocsin like a gigantic pneumatic riveter work ing on a colossal bell. Whooo-o shrieks the siren, running up and 'down the scale in an awful wail. "The streets come to life. Doors open and slam shut. The sidewalks are full of ghostly figures hurrying to ward the caves, where the inhabit ants have fitted up cots and bunks. They get up now to make a sitting piace tor the newcomers. The chil dren go to sleep with their heads on their mothers' shoulders, and a girl in the uniform of a street car conduc tor swaps yarns with a Pollu in dingy blue. In the last raid the front trucks ! of her car were thrown from the rails by the displacement of air caused by i an exploding torpedo. The car and Its inmates were unhurt. The Poilu looks a mite incredulous and mur murs: 'I can well believe you, made moiselle.' Archies Barrage Sky. "Outside the noise continues for about three or four minutes and then subsides as a new noise starts the Archies, or antiaircrft guns, which commence to bark furiously from half a dozen different points. Searchlights rake the sky. The Archies continue their clamor, but they are not firing at anything, merely keeping up a bar rage fire to prevent the Bodies flying over the city. "Suddenly there is an earthrock ing whoom. No doubt as to where the Bodies are. Whoom, whoom, whoom ! One involuntarily ducks and tries turtlewise to cover his head with his shoulders. A hideous noise resounds up and down the deserted street falling walls, and the tinkling and crash of showers of broken glass and roofing tiles. "Through the glass and litter of the street an American Red Cross camol nette comes plowing Its way. One of the city firemen stands on the running board.

The figure 13 was ery prominent in connection with the sinking of the steamship Oransa, on which were the 57 Y. M. C. A. war workers. The following is part of a letter received at the Metropolitan headquarters of the Pittsburgh Y. M. C. A. from one of the secretaries in London. "The sailors said they were not su perstitious, but "The passengers went on .board on a Friday. "The Oransa left America on April 13. "Thirteen vessels were in the con voy. "Thirteen pre.achers were on board the Oransa, also thirteen Methodists. "It was the thirteenth round-trip for the commander of the convoy and the thirteenth trip for an escorting war ship. "R. C. Bennett, of New York, assign ed to berth No. 13, was the only sea sick passenger. He moved out. Thom as B. Dawson of Providence, R. I., who took on No. 13, had the narrowest es cape. "The torpedo struck at 1:03 a. m., sinking the Oransa in thirteen min utes. "Lifeboat No. 13 alone was destroy ed by the explosion. "Upon reaching shore a conference was called in Room No. 13, and one man received hat check No. 13. "On the thirteenth day out a black cat on board Increased the passengers by three black kittens. Aside from that there was nothing connected with superstition." EXPERIMENTS ON SHELL TO END U-BOAT MENACE Evansville, Ind. William Schnabel Is experimenting on a shell with which he hopes to end the submarine peril by shooting the U-boat instead of its peri . scope. He says his shell Is non ricocheting and that it will not skip along on top of the water when shot at an angle, , as those in use now do. to 51?' he calls. A half dozen voices yell out that there is. "'Is everybody here from those numbers? Was there anyone left in either of those buildings?' "There is an anxious ealliner haek and forth and a rapid counting of noses. 'All here,' is the answer ! Send Victims to Poor Sisters. "Good ! Not much left of those two buildings. Don't enter the ruins un til they have been inspected by the engineering department; Go to the Sisters of the Poor if you want food or a place to sleep.

Several cars of oil are burn ing fiercely and. spreading to cars of merchandise. "Two railroaders have got hold of a switch engine and are shunting out whole strings of cars.

It is infernally hot, and the average man knows just how hot gasoline can get before it begins to misbehave; but the line never wa vers. " 'Roll 'em along, boys ! Keep 'era going. Everybody has got to die some time.' "Little by little things become quiet- er. The fires die down. Thp Archips stop. Now the tocsin sounds again, this time with slow, stately measured beats. This is the 'all's clear' signal." HIGH COST OF GOVERNMENT Operation Expense Has Increased 35 Per Cent in the Last Fif teen Years. Washington. Now we have the high cost of government. It has risen 35 per cent in the last 15 years, accord ing to a recent department of com merce report on financial conditions of 219 cities in the country. The report shows that the average American city is in a healthy financial condition, run on good, business-like lines. The total revenues were $1,065, 537,142, or $32.04 per capita, and total expenditures $821,491,575, or $24.70 per capita. The total outlay for the 219 ernes was .sti.Dy.yyu, or per capita. From this last returns could be expected which, on the average, would still further reduce the expen ditures. Next to taxes, the largest "item of which was the tax on the liquor traf fic, the greatest source of revenue for the cities was public service enter prises, the bulk of which came from public water systems, which doubled the amount of money spent on them. The net indebtedness of New York city alone, $987,347,610, was three fifths as great as all other cities of over 30,000 inhabitants taken together. The per capita indebtedness for Chi cago was $28.70, and St. Louis $25.07, both of these cities having an indebt edness which was smaller than most of the small cities and far below the large ones.
