The British front in Northern

cial statement details an unusual
number of raids by the British in vir
tually every important sector from
Belgium to St. Quentin. An unofficial
dispatch says that one raid last night
served to tighten the British grip
about Lens. These sort of operations
are usually the prelude to an impor
tant general offensive movement.
There is a momentary lull in the
fighting on the Aisne front. The
French have virtually succeded in re
establishing their line in the Vauxil-

of compelling the construction of fire

Perhaps the prettiest fashion that
has so far marked the entrance of
America into the war is the grouping

How Town Was Named.
An Interesting story is told as to the
orlein of the name '.'Moose Jaw," as ap
plied to a town in Canada. Some 50
years ago, so the story runs, a pioneer
with his team of oxen and "prairie
schooner," while passing along' the
banks of Che river, was obliged to
camo at this point In Saskatchewan
on account of an accident to his cart.
A spoke had fallen out during the
day, and the wheel was falling apart.
He looked about for something to in
sert for a temporary brace for the
wheel," while his wife busied herself
with the evening meal.
The pioneer's child, while romping
around, found the jawbone of a moose,
which she held up to her father, who
by this time almost despaired of find
ing anything with which to repair his
cart. He was delighted to find that the
jawbone exactly fitted the place of the
missing spoke. The Indians thereafter
named this- district "The Place Where
the White Man Found the Moose Jaw."
This, it is said, accounts for the town's
queer name. Washington Star.

PLOW IS MOST ANCIENT TOOL

ors Inventors in recent years, but there Is a long
story back of these plows.
From his study of a Babylon brick,
In the museum of the University of
Pennsylvania, Doctor Clay concluded
that -he-had found a true picture of
the first plow, which was invented by
Abraham. For his proof that Abra Abraham
ham Abraham was the Inventor of the plow,
Doctor Clay refers us to the "Book of
Jubilees," which was published in the
second century B. C. This book says
that the Babylonians were punished
because they had yielded to satan,
and that the form of their punishment
was that the ravens came and ate up
the grain they had sowed In the fields.
Abraham devised an Instrument that
should sow the seed in a furrow, In
order that it might be covered up so
that the birds of the air could not eat
it. The apparatus shown on the an ancient
cient ancient brick is a sort of combination
plow, planter and harrow. It required
three men to operate it When the
people sowed according to Abraham's
commands, they feared neither the ra
vens nor the birds. Whatever the
value of the story In the "Book of
Jubilees," the brick, at least, gives a
picture of perhaps the most ancient
tool used by man.
