A small French aeroplane, the "Bauernschrech," which translated means "the peasants' ter ror," is no more an great is the re joicing thereat among one wing of the German army which it had disturbed much. For a long period every evening about o'clock the machine used to appear over the trenches south of Rheims, drop just one bomb, which never failed to scatter death and de struction and then disappear. Ger man aviators ascended repeatedly and made futile attempts to bring down the dangerous visitor. It wan evident that the machine carried a murderous machine gun and that its occupants were no mean marksmen. Every aviator who pursued the "Bauernschrech" sought eagerly the honor of bringing it down, and as a result of bravery shown in pursuit one non-commissioned officer won an iron cross but lost his life. After be ing shot through the hips by a gun in the French machine he continued to pilot a German aeroplane for nine miles. Finally a reserve artillery captain evolved a new base for a howitzer, so constructed as to permit great eleva tion and rapid change of objective and the second shot from it finished the Bauernschrech. Both bodies were charred and mutilated beyond recog nition. It could only be told that one was an officer and the other a civilian. VERSAILLES IS BUSY Versailles, France, Dec. 16. War has transformed this ordinarily quiet historic city into a bustling military town. Headquarters of the Germans during the siege of Paris, it Is today the quarters of some of the troops of the military government of the capi tal and it is also the depot for army stores and is an aviation, center. Nec by is the St. Cyr military academy, which is similar to the American West Point The tourist at Versailles now Is a rarity. Formerly ho helped constitute the bulk of the floating population. He has been supplanted by the soldier's wife or sweetheart making a farewell visit. The park of the palace alone remains open and this is their favor ite promenade. The museum and ev erything else of historical Interest is closed. Squadrons of recruits are drilled daily in the public- streets. The com mands of their officers sometimes are unheard in the rattle of heavy muni tion wagons that pass so frequently nuiiiii iiirt.yicairiw'uorses just arrived and destined for the cavalry.

Cuticura Soap and Ointment Healed. 1177 Market St., Chehalto, Wash. VMj little nephew was crow and cried and complained of itching. The eczema broke out with a rash, reddish looking. It tpread until It was all over his body, and It came on bis face and caused disfigurement. HIa hands had to be tied to keep hint bom scratching. His cloth ing aggravated the trouble and made the breaking out worse. Be was so covered with eruptions be didn't look natural. There was such an ttchlng and burning sensation he could not sleep and kept someone with him continually. Weeks and months passed by and we bad almost given up In despair. "One day I read about Cuticura Soap and Ointment being good for eczema and all skin troublos. I sent for a frco sample and Immediately we discovered a change for the better. Before the saraplo was used up there was such a rcmarkablo change that I bought a box of Cuticura Soap and a box of Cuticura Ointment. The erup tions healed, the burning and itching ceased and by the time the Cuticura Soap and Ointment were used up he was a well boy." (Signed) Mrs. J. L. Steelman, Apr. 8. 1011. Samples Free by Mail Although Cuticura Soap (25c.) and Cuti cura Ointment (50c.) are sold throughout the world, a sample of each with 32-p. Skin Book will be sent freo upon request. Ad dross post-card "Cuticura, Dept. T, Boston," "People at home appear to have wrong notions about the fighting qal ities of the enemy. The English are the toughest and bravest foe we have to meet. Every individual mnn keeps on shooting coolly so long he is not taken prisoner and these trained vet erans shoot well.. When we storm a position the French will run when we close in with our shouts of 'hurrah', but the English stick tenaciously to their entrenchments to the last." Danger's Arneezeitung, the leading military publication of Austria, pays a high tribute to the Servian, Belgian and Russian troops. The Servians are called brave, but declaration is made that they are without food and ammunition. Credit is given the Bel gians for standing with England and France "when they must have realized that their own cause was Irredeem ably lost." The press is criticized for its attacks on the Russians, saying they are brave and capable.

Nearly 400 ap plications for 1915 automobile licenses have been already received at the of fice of Secretary of State Antonio Lu- cero. The number tags for automo biles, motor cycles and dealers will be ready for distribution not later than December 20. All tags for 1915 will have a red background and white letters and figures.

"In this connection-1- wish your attention to tba fact that the law provides that all license tags shajl be displayed on the rear end of the car and not on the front, as' some cars are doing; also that dealers' license tags are Issued for the exclusive use of the dealers and not for any of their customers. I mention this because I have ibeen informed that in some towns of the state deafers have allow ed their customres to ruii their cars with some of the duplicates that they were allowed. This' is In violation of the law and should not he permitted. When a man buys a car he should be made to buy a license before he is al lowed to run it." ; Rack your brainsuse your logic let judg ment help you guess, conjecture!

Watch for the next InstaTaint , ELECTRICITY IN HOTELS Hotel service would "be vastly dif ferent from what it is without elec tricity. It is this mysterious power which operates the elevators, runs the ice and refrigeration machines, drives the fans and ventilators, grinds the food stuffs, peels the vegetables, sweeps and dusts and does nearly all the other hard tasks about a modern hotel. In addition to this electricity operates the telephones, the call bells and buzzers, the fire alarm signals and signal systems of all kinds. It is even used to cook the food, to heat water, and to heat the rooms. One large New York .hotel Is equip ped with 1,200 small motors which are used throughout the building to do the hardest work, formerly done by servants. This number is exclusive of the 1,000 small motors used to drive ceiling, desk and bracket fans. The coal and ashes are conveyed by electricity; It pumps the water, drives a complete machine and repair shop, and the motor power is extensively used in the kitchen for peeling vege tables, chopping meatr for vegetable mashing, for soup straining and mix ing, for turning roasting spits, for dough mixing, for ice cream freezing, for crumbing bread, for grinding cof fee, for polishing silver and for dish washing. Motors also operate the ma chinery in the laundry, and convey the food from kitchen to serving rooms. Even the heating system Is operated by motors which circulate the warm ed air to all parts of the building. The main use of electricity in ho tels is for illumination. In addition lnSf 8 hotel j system oi ae;- - m ml1p of insulated wires are concealed within the walls and partitions of a large hotel to carry the electric current to every room where it Is ready to give light at the snap of a switch. Electricity is also being extensive ly used for heating and cooking in hotels. A few hotels and large res taurants are now equipped with com plete electrio kitchens where all the cooking is done by electricity. A large number of heating and cooking devices, such as electric toasters, per colators, grills, etc., are extensively used In most hotel kitchens as auxil iaries to the gas and coal ranges. F. M. SMITH NOW IS PRACTICAL LY HEAD OF REORGANIZED MORMON CHURCH Kansas City, Dec. 16. Frederick M. SmKh will not become president of the Latter Day Saints church In the full sense of the worcr uu sustained for that position by the next general conference, which will convene at La moni, a., April 6, next year. But he will be acting president of the church till that time, by reason of the unani mous vote of the church authorities at a meeting in Independence yesterday afternoon. Mr. Smith has been first counselor to the president and Elbert A. Smith has been second counselor for several years.. Yesterday's meeting indorsed them to continue in charge of the j work of the presidency, as they have been for the past two or three years. Yesterday's action was necessary to give then full authonry in view of the death of the president. There were present at the meeting nine members of the "Quorum of Twelve," Presiding Patriarch F. A. Smith, and three of the "Seven Presi dents of Seventies." After sustaining Frederick M'. Smith for the presidency the body expressed condolences' to the church and, to the family of the presi dent on his death, and exhorted all of the 75,000 members to co-operate as faithfully with the new president as they have always done. to the deceased one. The bodv congratulated the Reor ganized church on Its prosperous con dition; and expressed the belief that this condition would continue. It was six years ago, at a general conference session in Independence, that President Joseph Smith created a profound impression by announcing that in a revelation he had received teacher is employed in Luna county. Three teachers have professional cer tificates,' 38 have first grade certifi cates and only three have second grade. No other county in the state can make so fine a showing. It is not surprising therefore that salaries range mostly from $75 to $200 a month only nine teachers receiving less and these receiving from $50 to $70. The department of education today received from the bureau of educa tion at Washington, D. C, a complete course of study for intermediate or junior high schools, covering the sev enth, eighth and ninth years. Similar course of study for commercial and vocational courses Is given. Com parison of it with the New Mexico courses of study is most interesting. It is significant that in each year and in each course, Spanish is one of the optional studies. JAPS SAIL TODAY Tokio, Dec. 16. The Japanese Red Cross corps which is going to France leaves Yokohoma by the steamer Fushimi Maru December 16. The corps consists of Dr. Shioda, professor of the (Imperial University, who Is the chief of the medical staff; Drs. Mogi and about 15 nurses and a few pharma-- cists. Landing at Marseilles ihe party will go to Bordeaux. irative lighting GERMANS PRAISE ENEMIES Berlin, Dec, 16. Evidences of the reaction of German officers ana sol diers fighting at the front against the tendency to belittle the fighting qual ities of the enemy continue to accum ulate. Soldiers' letters and returning sol diers speak in terms of high appro ciation of the military prowess and soldierly qualities of their opponents and among several hundred wounded with whom the correspondent of the Associated Press has talked in his visits to hospitals the last fornight no one was found who refused to credit the enemy in general, Russian, French and Belgian and English with bravery and military bkIII. Distinctions are drawn, it Is true, the British being generally recokned as the toughest opponents on the west front. The Germans had a high opinion of the fighting qualities of the French soldiers before this war began. The fighting which occurred on the march from the Belgian frontier to the Mama and Paris tended to lessen their re spect for toughness of French moral fiber, but the last two months have changed that again and soldiers' let ters reflect increased respect for them. The recent fighting of the rem nant of the Belgian army in Flanders also has greatly rased the German estimation of the Belgian soldier, who, in the general army opinion, had not greatly distinguished himself at Liege, Namur and Antwerp and the interven ing field engagements. As to the British, field post letters continue to bear out the statement from a German expert as to their rob ust fighting qualities. One of the lat est of these letters, printed In the Cologne Gazette, contains the follow ing striking passage: BIG PIECE OF PIPE PUT BACK IN PLAGE COMPLETION OF REPAIR WORK AT THE ELECTRIC PLANT WILL BE EASY Late yesterday afternoon the steeplejack succeeded in restoring the Las Vegas Light and Power company's big smokestack to an upright position. The big detached section, which nad been hanging above the roof of the plant for several days, was lifted, by means . of block and tackle erected upon a tall pole, and set in its proper place, where it was fastened tempor arily by means of guy wires. It is the plan of Manager W. P. Snnihnrj tn hnlt: n. larire section ot his son, Frederick M. Smith, had been mat., about the Joint, thua designated' as the one who should sue- tb ipe ganger than it was before the break occurred. Mr. South ard engineered the job from the ground.

Crysler avenue, Independ ence, and he has a wife and several children. Last fall ho went to Wor cester, Mass., to complete certain courses of study and live for a year, taking his family with him. They re mained there when he came home to his father's bedside. He will return to Worcester today to resume his studies. and his absolute fearlessness in the air made him a valuable man. Doll will complete the "upstairs" work. It was discovered by the climber that the detached piece of metal-, weighing about ai ton and one-half, was held in place by one metal hook attached to a single guy wire. Why this hook did not give way and allow the pipe to crash down on the roof of the plant, where it probably- would have done a great deal of damage, is regarded as a mystery.
