what somewhat obscure yesterday owing to the
stiff German resistance, are recorded
today. Whatever gain the British
make in this section it is expected
must be fiercely fought for, owing to
the nature of the defenses and the
anxiety of the Teutons to hold their
present positions at all costs.
The Italians report that they con-

increased the number of prisoners
taken to 16,000. Furious fighting
continues on the Isonzo front. Rome
reports further gains on both the
northern and southern wings.
Fighting on the Verdun front is
dying down. The French objctives

have been attained.

I also notice that you have, under

THE FALL GARDEN
Now is the time to prepare for and
plant that fall garden.
The average man does not give
enough attention to his fall garden
and the result is not satisfactory. A
fall garden given the same attention
and care will prove as profitable a.s
a spring garden. Weeds grow faster
now and it will take a little more
work but food prices continue to
climb and the fall garden this year
will prove an economy.
Good preparation, fertilization and
cultivation will produce results. The
world needs all that we can produce.
You may not raise any to sell but
every bit you raise will save you
from buying that much and thereby
increases the amount available for

Prince Ludwig, the representative of
a legal dynasty, was at the capital, but
the Crown Prince Rudolph, who had
been banished by his father, was in
Paris. Rudolph was the choice of the
people, but the Austrian government
desired to place Ludwig on the throne.
Rudolph made his preparations to go
to claim hi.s crown, and, being obliged
to pass through Austrian territory, the
government desired to intercept him.

proposed to accompany his sovereign
to his capital. "I suggest that we travel
as master and valet. I to be the mas master,

"An admirable plan," said Rudolph.
"We will adopt it."
That night the two started, the count

had all the spirit beaten out of him by
a tyrannical master. Count Ernest be being

him plenty to do and abusing him
soundly at the slightest remissness.
Passing down the Danube by boat, the
two attracted the attention of the old
Baroness von Vallenstein and her beau beautiful
tiful beautiful daughter Bertha.
"Hans," cried Count Ernest, "bring
me some hock and soda water, and
don't spend the whole day gabbling
with the other servants. Be quick I"
Hans moved away, and Bertha von
Vallenstein, who had looked up from
her book, cast an indignant glance at
the count for the severity of his tone.
When the valet returned with the hock
and soda Count Ernest berated him for
having been gone so long. Bertha von
Vallenstein, iodignant at the count's
abuse, called Hans to her and said to
"Do you wish to leave the service
of the man who treats you so harshly?
If you do I will engage you at .once.
My mother and I need a manservant."
"Thank you, fraulein," stammered
the astonished king incognito. "He
pays me such good wages that"
"I will pay you double."
The king was In a quandary. Count
Ernest, who saw what was going on,
ordered him away on another errand
an when he was gone said to the
"Pardon nae, fraulein. This servant
whom you think I treat so unjustly
must be handled with great severity.
He has overridden every master he
has served till he came to ne, and at
the slightest evideiice of kindliness he

After that Count Ernest, seeing his
mistake in attracting attention by his
feigned severity, treated his servant
less harshly. They pursued their Jour Journey,

and at last Rudolph found himself safe

with great joy and affection.

She could not put away the image of

enter her service. Her mother laughed
at her, assuring her that after what
his master had said of him she would
run a great risk in engaging him and
tried to persuade her daughter to pro proceed

A body of troops in camp is protected

OUR PORPOISE FISHERY.

One of the oldest and least known
Industries iu America is the porpoise
fishery, which has been operated from
Cape Uatteras, in North Carolina, for
about 200 years. It should attain an
unusual prosperity in the next few
years, for the bureau of fisheries is
urging more general use of porpoise
hides in place of cowhide. It Is an
excellent leather and could undoubted undoubtedly

Heretofore the most valuable prod prod-act

which is extracted from the jaws of

is also valuable. Attempts to manu manufacture

SOUTHERN TIRE QUALITY
Southern Tires contain more cubic
area of contents of material (not of
air space) than other tires. Size for
size they weigh more, and will give
an unusual amount of service. You
oversize your tires to get extra
weight and material. You get that in
regular sizes when you buy Southerns.

Caribou of Alaska.
The chief food of the caribou of
Alaska is reindeer moss, of a greenish
white color, which is scattered over the
hills and mountains of Alaska. Their
favorite feeding grounds are on the
treeless and semitreeless parts of the
territory, including the tundras along
the coast of the Arctic ocean, and
down to the Pacific side of the Alaska
peninsula. They scatter widely in
summer and collect in herds in the
fall. Each herd has its leader, and it
is said that if the leader is killed the
rest of the herd becomes panic stricken
and stampedes back and forth until
another animal takes the lead.
