French School Training 150 to Be Self Supporting. The school opened in Hourgcs for the re-education of maimed soldiers is op erating with great success. The num ber of pupils enrolled already is 150, nearly all of whom will be unable to work at the trades by which they earned their living before the war and must learn some new means of making livelihood. A staff of eminent physicians is faithfully attending the unfortunates, preparing them for their changed fu ture and helping to lighten their tasks. Among the instructors are former teachers who are themselves cripples. In spite of their afflictions, the stu dents go about their work gayly. Men who before the war were grocers, plas terers, barbers and miners are now designing patterns for lace, while farm hands and butcher boys are taking courses In electricity and architecture. The course in stenography and account ing is the most popular, the pupils in cluding a former head waiter, a carpet layer and a gardener. Legal Blanks at this qffice.

The London I 'Mily Mail. commenting editorially on tlie report that the Cer mans recently became possessors of a new ami faster type of aeroplane, urges the Uritish government to seek the assistance of Orville Wright, the American Inventor. "The government is being urged to embark on a gigantic scheme for aero plane construction, with Mr. Churchill in charge." says the Mail.
