in the territory traversed by the New

New York State, where farms were

been highly cultivated, and profitable,
were practically abandoned.
In the prosecution of this work a
farm or. agricultural bureau was or-

Speculating on what time the war

dopes out some of the probabilities as
The Last Man
In the Cologne Gazette a Professor
Perseval says that the allies should
remember that in the event of their
defeating Germany they would be un unable
able unable to collect any indemnity because
practically the last man and the last
German dollar would have been spent
! by that time. "Nations do not fight
literally to the last man or the last
dollar. The most heroic of them on-
ly continue to send men to the front
while there is apparently a hope left
of saving their country. They only
continue to spend money on the war
so long as it is .plain that money can
be SDent to some mirnose. When the
truth is forced home mum the Her-
mans that the sending of another man
to the front; will not prevent over
whelming defeat, they will stop, send-
mg men. in ouier woras, tne last man
and the last dpllar would have gone.
This stage will come probably while at
least half the men in Germany are
living; and while Germany in potential
resources is a wealthy nation. The
allies do not contemplate a time when
there will be no more Germans left.
They expect merely to see the day
when the hundreds of thousands, or
even millions, of Germans under arms
will refuse to continue the fight.
When that day will dawn is a mat
ter upon which expert opinions vary.
Some say it will occur in 1915,' some
in 1916. Kitchener is quoted as hav
ing stated that he did not know when
the war would end, but that he knew
when it would begin, namely in May.
An Italian is quoted as observing that
Italy would enter the war when Bri
tain did. He meant to say that when
Britain was ready for her great for
ward movement with a million men in
France 'and. Belgium, Italy would
throw in her armies, too. By holding
off until this new and final phase of
the war had been entered upon Italy
would save the lives of tens of thous
ands of her men, and would avoid i
war' expenditure of probably a couple
of million dollars a day for the next
four months. Her intervention would
be all the more effective because she
would be throwing in. her veteran
troops when they had only half -trained
enemies to encounter. -When the
Germans begin the final retreat, with
perhaps Italy and Roumania added to
their foes, with Russia pouring new
millions of men into Austria and East
Prussia, with Austria perhaps plead pleading
ing pleading for pace, with her colonies all
lost and her Turkish ally driven out
of Europe, the day would dawn for
the German people would be at hand.
All these, things are likely to occur
in the next six months.

Kite SJgnallng'Of French Navy.
Novel ways of signaling were tried
out recently during the naval ma maneuvers

aboard the French warships. It was
generally conceded that the tests with
box kites were most efficient. The
results proved that the box kites, be being
ing being Jight, can be hoisted even when
there Is but a slight breeze; and their
size makes them easily discernible
from great distances. The signal sys
tem used was similar to that of the
flag system. Various combinations of
kite groupings were used. While this
system of signaling is not quite so
fast as signaling by means' of flags,
It is more definite, it is claimed, and
can be seen for miles around. The
success of the experiment has led to
to a recommendation to the French
government that the system be Intro
duced generally in the navy of France.
