American Under Sea Vessel Went Ta The Bottom wiring Naval Manoeuver Practice THE ENTIRE m PERISHED Heroic Efforts Made To Raise Craft Whicn Was Located In Fifty Fathoms Of Water Honolulu, Hawaii. The American submarine F-4 was lost off Honolulu harbor. Heroic efforts wore made to raise the stricken craft, but after hav ing been submerged for more than thirty hours it was regarded as doubt ful whether any of her crew of twenty-one men remained alive. To lift the little vessel to the sur face, It was fbund necessary to send to the Pearl Harbor naval station for a derrick and crane. This . involved much loss of time and it was thought the fate of the crew might not be de termined until daylight. Rescue vessels dragging the ocean bed with grappling hooks chanced upon the stricken craft at a depth of 300 feet. Making fast to the F-4, the naval tug Navajo and the steamer Villa Suffers a Bloody Defeat Will Renew Attack On Carranza As Soon As He Can Muster More Men And Arms Brownsville, Texas.-- Failing in their attempt to dislodge tin Carranza gar risou by rifle and machine gun lire, Villa forces besieging Malumoras vir tually ceased their aUarks, awaiting, it was announced, the arrival of ar tillery. In the event of an artillery duel. Brownsville, directly across the Kio Grande from Matumoros, would be en dangered, and one of the gravest of border crises is fi-ared. The likeli hood of shells falling in Brownsville was demonstrated by the rifle bullets which dropped here during the first Villa as-ault on Matamoros trenches, a costly failure of Villa forces, in which tlyeir lasses were officially giv n isJ' -Killed and 400 wounded. This attack was a head-strong dash of 2,000 mounted riflemen. The Carranza losses were ten killed and forty-five wounded. Two persons youngster on the Long Distance Bell Telephone. Children who cannot write can use the Bell Telephone with ease, and their small voices over the wires give assurance to loved ones that all is well. The Long Distance Bell Telephone plays an im portant part in the social life of the nation. With out leaving your home you can visit satisfactorily with relatives or friends in distant cities. The service is fine; the rates are reasonable. Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Station. alakaala Began td tow their find they were not certain that it was the submarine they had hooked toward shallow water. Quantities of oil came to the surface, proof that it really was the lost vessel. Soon afterward a sub marine marker buoy, discovered far below the water, removed all doubt that the F-4 had been found. For more than an hour the tug and the steamer struggled with their un wieldy burden. Soon afterwards it became apparent .that it would be Im possible to tow the submarine near enough to shore to bring her to the surface and a hurry call was sent to the naval station for a wrecking ship. Naval authorities admitted they had given up hope for the F-4's crew; however, resuscitating apparatus had been despatched to the scene and ev ery effort will be made to develop any spark of life that may remain. The general opinion is that the ves sel's plates were sprung through the Immense pressure of the water at a depth of 50 fathoms and that the two officers and nineteen enlisted men aboard have perished. Vessels in the vicinity equipped with submarine sig nal apparatus continued to send out signals, but no answers came. were struck by bullets in Brownsville. Neither was seriously injured. The coming Villa artillery must be powerful, enough to cope with nine li-inch field pieces of the defenders, none of which was fired. In addition, the Carranza troops are said to have four 3 1-2-Inch guns. Concealed machine guns won several brilliant successes for the Carranza forces in the opening fight. A troop of 50 Villa cavalry, circling five miles south of Brownsville, approached un wittingly at a town named Uositas, a machine gun trench hidden by brush. They were trotting past this trench when the machine guns opened lire. Nearly the entire Villa dead were said to have fallen at this point, while al most to a man the others were wound ed. This incident explains why so many of the Villa wounded who were brought here were hit in the left side. If some men had their lives to live again they probably wouldn't leave so many dollars for their heirs to scrap over. Hello, Grandma! We're All Well, How arc You?

LOCATE SUBMARINE Sunken Undersea Destroyer Found At Great Depth First Discovery Proved To Be Anchor Honolulu. The submerge'd subma rine F-4 has been located outside the harbor it is announced. Portions of the superstructure have been brought to the surface. The ! dredge California will shift moorings, tugs will crin's-cross in all directions and an attempt will he made to lift the submarine. The submarine was located after search of three days had resulted only in unfulfilled hopes. Divers, who went down the two cables thought to have been attached to the submarine, found the heavy body was an old anchor, probably lost by the battleship Oregon. A Cure for Sour Stomach. Mrs. Wm.

The size of the garrison of Przemysl and the number of men who surrendered to the Russians greatly exceed all estimates. Accord ing to Petrograd dispatches the gar rison originally consisted of 170,000 men, of whom 40,000 were killed. Near ly 120,000 surrendered when the fort, ress capitulated. A blizzard, which has interfered with the telegraphic service, prevents details of the surrender from coming through, but Lemberg reports that for seven days prior to the fall of the fortress the people of the town had nothing to eat and the Russians, who took in large supplies of provisions, were welcomed as liberators. Dispatches from Lemberg also say that 15,000 persons were found suffer ing from typhus or cholera and that the work of disinfecting the place is being undertaken energetically. The interior forts, it is said, were found I intact, with a good deal of ammuni tion in mem. To Begin Drive On Cracow Everywhere in Europe, both in bel ligerent and neutral countries, the greatest credit is given the Austrians for their long and stubborn resistance, which has delayed and interfered with the Russian campaign in other direc tions. Now that the Russians, whose num bers, like those of tha Austrians, must have been greater than estimated, no longer are compelled to invest this fortress, a big movement either against Cracow or in the Carpathians doubt less will be started. With their north ern lines protected by the morass into which the greater part of Poland is converted during the spring months, the Russians are expected to throw all their strength against the Austri ans and attempt finally to crush them. One British military critic stakes his reputation on the prophecy that Cracow will fall within a month and that when it does, or before, Austria will endeavor to conclude a separate peace.

C Mrs. Sarah M. Char pell of this town, says: "I suffered foi live years with womanly troubles, als stomach troubles, and my punishment was more than any one could tell. I tried most every kind of medicine, but none did me any good. I read one day about Cardui, the wo man's tonic, and 1 decided to try it. I had not taken but about six bottles until 1 was almost cured. It did me more pood than all the other medicines 1 had tried, put together. My friends began asking me why I looked so well, and i told them about Cardui. Several are now taking it." Do you, lady reader, suffer from any of the ailments due to womanly trouble, such as headache, backache, sideache. sleeplessness, and that everlastingly tired feeling? If so. let us urge you to give Cardui a trial, we feel confident it will help you, lust as it has a million other women in he past half century. Begin taking Cardui to-day. You won't regret it.

In planning for summer vacations or visits back home, try to include the International and World's Union convention to be held in Chicago, 7-12; and if you wish' also to go to San Francisco there is the splendidly con ducted special train of Illinois En deavorers from , Chicago after our convention closes. ' State President D. B. Curry is transportation mana ger for Florida and we expect to have enough delegates for a car to meet others en route; all together forming a full train of Endeavorers before Chicago is reached. - There will be reduced railroad rates. We read much of Clean-up weeks, and such necessary and healthful and beautifying civic plans, and sometimes wonder what the endeavorers are uo ing. ' The last society organized, in Grove Park, North-Central district, is planning street cleaning bees, and a special form of good work is this way, trimming the live oaks, which adorn this town like so many others in our state. Once when traveling through Nebraska in time of drouth we saw often little flower plo.s near the depots, a contrasting vivid green compared with the barren, sun-burnt scenes around; and' we thought, if people in Florida had more to contend with in making things beautiful, per haps they would try to do it harder. In this part of the middle-west just mentioned even the trees have to be planted, and here it seems tiresome often even caring for those nature erives so eenerouslv. or with small ef fort on our part to protect through winter or dry spells. Hawthorne Presbyterians repoit their new society doing well, and so is another late organization of North Central, the Junior work in Lake But ler Christian church. At Pal ma Sola, a Junior society started this Endeav or year, their superintendent. Mrs. Allison, reports excellent work done, the Junior topic books from Bosto.i being used with good results. Palni.i Sola also has a grown-up so'.vi-ty, making a bright, new spot in Sntil'.i Western district growth for the year ending April 1st. Miss Anna J. Gunn of Stuart, will attend the Jacksonville conve'i'Jvi there representing the far-the -rest-down district, South-Knstern. We hope the district presidents hat .ng fewer miles to come will follow her example in attendance. State Treasurer George C'avanagh and his brother Earl, president of South-Western district, hope to get to Jacksonville. They also se !.l a delegate from the United Brethren society of Tampa in whkh the Ca- vanagh brothers are a.'tiv-! workers. Do not forget the date, April Iti-lS. Programs will soon be out and if you want one write D. B. Currv, box Jacksonville. Our Stat; President, Mr. Curry, is very busy these days, and his room-mate. District President I io Pettyjohn, making his typewriter have a C. E. record for such gocd work. Next Sunday's topic is "Conquer ing Discouragement," Let us do it. Years ago your press superintendent read, "Discouragement is from the devil." It stuck in her memory ami has helped over many rough places. GKACrJ A. TOWNSfcliND. Interlachen, March 30th.
