Londou,., Nov. 13, 3.41 A. M. —The
correspondent of the "Chronicle," at
Keling, Cocos Islands, under date of
Thursday, November 12, sends the
following story of the last fight of the
German cruiser, Emden.
"A four-funneled cruiser arrived at
full speed at the entrance of the La

The suspicions of those ashore were at

Emden Blew Emergency Siren
'•At 9 o'clock the Emden blew her
emergency siren for the return of the
landing party, but did not wait for
them. From ashore the reason for the
Xfanden's haste was apparent as in the
east a warship could be seen coming
up it full speed.
"The Emden fired the first shot at
a range of 3,700 yards, at the same
time steaming in a northerly direction
at her fastest possible speed. Mean
while her pursuer was identified from
the shore as the Australian cruiser
At tbe first the firing of the Emden
seemed excellent while that of the

that the Emden's first shot had wreck

British gunners soon found the range,
iiov.evcr, and shot away two of the
Linden's funnels and one mast. Both
ghips were blazing away with all their
aims when they disappeared below the
horizon and the Emden was aiire aft.
"Meanwhile the landing party en
trenched on the shore of the lagoon,
determined to fight if the British sent

Emden's Shots Not Effective
"Only two of the Emden's shots
were effective. The first smashed the
range finder and killed one man and
the second killed three and wounded
fourteen. Both of the cruisers used tor

CITIES MADE BANKRUPT BY
WAR AREJKI THE INCREASE
\en ice. Via Paris. Nov. 12, 11.35
I'. M.—The number of bankrupt cities
hele is said to be increasing. Business
in corn at present is in an unsettled
condition. Retail prices on several ar
ticles of food are advancing, notably
p ?gs, flour, lard, bacon and meats, on
which butchers aire attempting to raise
prices, although the wholesale markets
have nor changed. The Minister of
the Interior has ordered the police to
keep a. close watch on the butchers and
report such cases immediately, when
the offenders will be severely punished.
In view of the decreased supjrties of
cajtle, the authorities have agreed to
permit the sale of horses for slaughter
in the Vienna markets daily, instead of
only on Tuesdays and Fridays, as pre
viously had been the case.
Ralph C. Busser, the American Con
sul at Trieste, visited the British pris
oners interned at Krain November 8.
He took them money and \varm cloth

they were receiving.

Elsewhere on the main line of battle
gains by the allies are reported, in

Military experts in France and Eng

reinforcements there and relieve the
pressure in Belgium.
From the othor fields of battle there
is little new Information. In Berlin
was received a dispatch from Vienna
which, while stating that the Austrian
operations in the northwest were de
veloping "without hindrance from the
enemy,'* also contained the admission
that ientral Galicia had been evacuated
by the and that the Rus
sians had crossed the lower Vistula

however, a Russian defeat is reported
by Vienna. A Petrograd dispatch has
it that the Germans suffered a severe
defeat beyond Kalisz, leaving many
dead on the field. This report, how
ever. has not been confirmed.
Vienna states that the campaign
against the Servians Is proceeding suc
cessfully, and that the enemy has been
forced to abandon fortified positions
and is in full retreat. Fighting centers
along the banks of the river Save which
separated northwestern Servia from Au
stria. At one position, according to Au

to the effect that the Russians are now
being attacked on their second liue of

the Turkish attack was severe, Russia
has given forward details of the fight
ing in this theatre.
Great Britain is calling for another
million of men to pour into the war. A
supplementary estimate providing for
this force was introduced to-day in the
House of Commons.
Indications point to another naval
battle in the Pacific. The German fleet
apparently is remaining close to the
South American coast, and reports from
various places suggest that Japanese
and British warships are drawing in on
the Germans. Destruction of a German
submarine is reported unofficially from
Dunkirk. A French torpedo boat, at
tacked by the submarine, is said to
have run it down.
Although the fighting at Tsing-Tau
has ended, a further loss of life there
was reported from Tokio to-day. The
explosion of a subterranean mine killed
ten men aud wounded 57.
Aside from the situation in Belgium, j
the chief point in to-day's war n>ws

Pupils, he said, learn and are governed
more 'by the actions ot' the teacher than
by all the books they study.
Prof. A:'o»rt, in his talk on "School
Disci line From a Modern Viewpoint,"
saiil that the day of the incessant use
of title strap ami rod has almost passed
and one of the chief factors in helping
remove it is the abolishment of the dou
ble desks. If the tea'chers wish to have
order in the school room they should
pay more attention to the seating of the
pupils so as not to seat pupils of the
same temperament beside each other.
Prof, \lhert also said that teacihers that

the self-control at their command and

As the result of an accident due to
