CONQUEST OF THE EARTH
Man's Battle fro Fruitful Fields j
Against Nature's Barriers
Nature has set up four kinds of bar
riers to man's conquest of the earth—
mountains, forests, deserts, rivers. The
first he cannot remove, so he bores
holes through them for his railways.
The second he has, most unwisely,
largely cleared away altogether. The
third he is beginning to treat like the
forests. The fourth he is shifting to
suit his purposes and to regulate their I
flow at will.
Man flies now over all boundaries. |
He cuts through isthmuses to remove j
the barriers between the seas^
Into the deserts man sends railroads, |
telegraph lines, irrigation engineers.
The Great American desert marked j
upon the atlases of our fathers has J
ceased to exist. The vast desert of
northwestern Canada has become a
prairie of waving wheat. The Landes
of Gascognv are now much more than |
half covered with pine trees. Over j
22,000 square miles of the Algerian j
desert has been made fruitful by arte- ■
sian wells. Tin Australian desert is j
rapidly being irrigated and turned into !
grazing land. Almost 70,000 square;
miles of desert in India have been re- !
claimed. Operations are now in prog-!
ress for reclaiming J9,000 square miles
of the delta of the .Tigris and Euphra
tes, and more than 4.000 square miles
of the Gezireh plain between the Bhie
and the White Nile are being trans
formed into cotton plantations.
Thus is man by obliterating natural |
Carriers improving upon j
A Whisticr Story
While a draftsman in the coast sur- .
vev from November, 1854, to February,!
1855, Whistler, the artist, boarded at j
the northeast corner of K and Tvvolfth |
streets, Washington. He is remember- j
ed as being usually late for breakfast:
and always making sketches on the j
walls. To the remonstrating landlord.

THE LAST SHOT
Dramatic Incident That Closed the
There wa« probably no incident in
, the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 more
j dramatic than that which marked its
| close. Herr Forckenbeck, president of l
the Prussian chamber of deputies was I
sent with a colleague to Versailles to!
congratulate King Williaim upon his j
election as emperor.
Bismarck, who had just concluded i
the terms of peace with France, in-,
j vited them to supper and in the course j
! of the meal said:
j "This night at 12 o'clock the last}
shots will be exchanged between our
| troops and the French, and I have
1 conceded to the French the honor of
| the lost shot." /
Forckenbeck and his colleague left
; their host before midnight, drew out
i their watches, stood underneath a lau
' tern of the Hotel du Reservoir and
I waited. First there was a cannon
| shot from the German lines; then a
solemn stillness; then followed the Last
I reply from Mont Valerien. The tow
!er clock at Versailles struck 12. The
I French war had ended.—Exchange.

by Them—Some Amusing Inci

A largely attended meeting of the
Foreign Missionary Society of Market
Squ'are Presbyterian church was held
in the ohurch thus afternoon, at whicli
a number of ma/ttors pertaining to the
ivork were taken up. During the after
noon Mrs. Mabel Oronise Jones read
an extract from a letter received by
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel W. Fleming, of
this city, from their daugihtar, Mrs.
Mary Fleming Latyaree, who, with her
husband, is in the missionary field at
Tabriz, Persia, showing tihat the war
in Europe is even affecting faraway
Persia, by reason of the Turks taking
part. Mrs. Labaree's letter is as fol

It has also brought a cessation of hos

was an anxious time for the Christians
there. The Kurds swept down to the
hil'l's of Ch air bach, oaly ten minutes
from the city. They foug'ht their way
down to Uruimia l'ast Monday and the
next day would have been in the city.
That very night Bussian re-enforce

Kurds saw that they could do nothing
and retired on Tuesday morning, the
very day thalt our delegates returned
from the annual meeting in Tabriz.
Kurd's Attack Well Organized
'' The aJtUaeJc was so open, so organ
ized, so different in Its plan from the
usual Kurdish attack that thoughtful
ones are confident that Turkish or
German brains direcited it. Of coiuirse,
the mission yards in Urusnda were fill
ed with refugees and their goods.
There were many sad sights—wound
ed in the hospital, separated fammlies
and hundreds destitute. There were
'aiso some bits of food for lauglhter.
"The liussian commander gave arms
to the moumltain Syriaina, ordering them
to give up their head dress so like the
Kurds, for he feared that in the com
ing fight his soldtors might mistake
the Syrians (for Kurds. So these Syr

European straws, fedoras, and derbys.
One strapping mountaineer bad his gun
over his boulder and on his head a

the Russians, had burned Seir, Mar

The wife and the son of our preacher
were wounded. A Kurd threw one
woman to the ground and held down
her helad, meaning to blow out her
braiins. Just as he fired she jerked her
head away and the bullets struck her
hand causing her to lose four finigers.
Juist then help arrived and she was
taken to our hospital.

NEW IIILIT A ACT
IS WORKING WELL
Though in Operation
but a Short Period,
Good Results Have
Commander Bassett Calls Attention to
How Volunteer Arm of Service Can
Be Improved by Making Number
By Associated Press.
Washington, Dec. 4.—The now
militia act is working well, even
though it has been in operation for a
short period, according to Commander
F. B. Bassett, Jr., chief of the Naval
Militia Bureau, in his annual report
to-day. On the whole, he says, the naval
militia increased in numbers during
the past year for while several divis
ions were disbanded a number were
organized and the increase is expectod
to l>e evon more marked during the
coming year owing to the enthusiasm
and interest aroused by the passage of
. Inspectors reports showed that the
naval militia, with the exception of
two divisions of South Carolina, wero
qualified to participate in the allot
ment of federal funds. Several organi
zations are top heavy with officers and
petty officers, and in many cases the
rank of the officers is too high.
Because of the difficulty in getting
relations from naval militia officers,
busy with their own affairs consider
able government property is not prop
erly accounted for and Comma'nder
Bassett recommends that at least one
competent yeoman be assigned to each
naval militia vessel to assist in this
clerical work. He recommends also
that some of the old battleships now
in reserve, be assigned to a naval mil
itia of certain states, the reserve of
ficers and men on the ships to remain
aboard while they are also occupied by
the militia. The plan is for the Illi
nois to be taken to Brooklyn for use
by the Second Battalion ot' the New
York Naval Militia; the Maine to New
York for the use of the First Battalion
of the New Jersey Militia, and the
First Battalion of the New York Mil
itia; the Alabama to be taken to Bos
ton for the use of the Massachusetts
Naval Militia and the Kentucky to be
moored in the Delaware river for the
use of the Second Battalion Now Jer
sey Naval Militia and the First Bat
talion Pennsylvania Militia.
As the naval militia is a purely vol
untary organization, made up of busi
ness and working men the time they
are able to devote to naval militia
matters is necessarily limited and
should, in the opinion of Commander
Bassett, be devoted to drills and the
details of the naval profession. He
asserts that they should not be expect
ed to spend much time scaling bilges,
painting double bottoms or repairing
material and he recommends a consid
erable increase of the number of ship
keepers to take care of this work.
LATE WAR NEWS SUMMARY
Continued From First I'nge.
ill the war there were similar interrup

later to have been due to rigid censor

For several days it has been Inti
mated unofficially that another great
battle In Belgium and Northwestern
France was pending
The forces of the allies in that re
gion have been strengthened and the
assumption of supreme command thero
by the English general, Sir John French,
was believed to indicate that the new
English army recently sent to the con
tinent had been scattered along the
Yser in Belgium and in Northern
France, perhaps in preparation for a
great attack. It has been assumed by
some military critics that the allies on
this occasion would take the offensive,
since the Germans presumably were
weakened by the withdrawal of troops
for use in the campaign against Rus
sia. Others have stated, however, that
Oermany had determined to make a
"last effort" to push through to the

in the East and is striking another
blow at Russia. Although authenti

only in vaguest outline, it was apfcjrent

a calamitous defeat, are now renewing

A new battle has developed southwest

which took them almost to Warsaw,
was followed by a retreat to German

main positions, so that now the attempt
at a forward movement is initiated by
