"Il was a clear day off Folkestone.,

of    excitement.     The    torpedo j

dashing about in apparently aimless I
circles.    A   seaplane  whirled  out oi J

spol in the waicr.    Watching crowds j
saw a dark shadow which sank bach
into tho depths.    Motor lorries hur-1

Ou the return voyage Mrs. Hales'
vessel was attacked twice by submarines. The first attack was late
on a clear morning. A lookout
sighted a periscope and the wake of
a torpedo speeding toward lhe ship.
Thc vessel veered and the torpedo
passed 50 feet astern. Then the naval gnu crew uuliinheied llieir camion
and lhc U-boat disappeared.
The next attack resulted disastrously for another of the kaiser's
sea terrors. The U-boat fired two
torpedoes, which missed. Naval gunners scut a hail of shot toward thc
periscope. Mrs. Bates counted 68
shots. Thc captain of the gnu crew
wouldn't tell what happened, but
ship gossip had il that the gun crew's
first shot disabled the "sub," and that
later it went down.
ln London Mrs. Bales saw llie first

awakened by the roar of bursting
bombs. They hurried into the street.
Hundreds of fingers of light darted
through the sky and finally the Zeppelin was flooded with light. Two
English airplanes darted in, there
was a rattle of machine gun lire and
the Zeppelin  fell in flames.

Bates has the strongest praise. Women are doing everything, she says

In a recent statement issued by-

shown that the 1917 wheat crop of
France was only 39,900,000 hundredweights, as compared with 87,830,000

The Fir_t Requisite
-Military Defeat Necessary to Secure
a Durable Peace
If Germany cannot bc compelled
to submit to law and civilization now,
what possible chance is there of compelling Germany to submit after a
truce has been made? If lhe nations
that recognize tlie supremacy of law
and treaty obligations cannot employ
their police power successfully in
this conflicl, will they ever hc able lo
employ it successfully? The first requisite lo an international agreement
that can command respect is the military defeat of Germany, and without
tbat an agreement is not worth thc
paper upon which it is written. We
shall be where wc were previous to
1914, with German autocracy ready
lo strike again for world dominion
the moment the prize seems to bc
within reach.
A durable peace will never bc won

Turning on their course, thc British

Why the Telephone Is
Sound travels at the rate of 1,070 feet per second; the
voice when telephoning travels at the rate of 15,000 per second. Think of it! The reason sound travels faster bv telephoning is because it is accelerated by electricity, not very
much, but enough for the purpose,
So you can see the telephone is the quickest���the surest
to send, the quickest to reach the ear you seek, and the easiest to bring the answer back.    From anywhere, too,
