Dec. 12.- Unprecedented floods in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi that started early in the week. were generally receding today, the rivers most greatly affected during the three days being out of bank and causing heavy property lots. This was particularly true around Montgomery where the swollen rivers had almost paralyzed the city’s industries without doing much damage to the Montgomery capital itself. Many persons were marooned around the city but only five lives were lost. according to general reports. The toll of life was small, the total of the three states probably not amounting to a score in all. Grant Irwin, popular agent for the Buick cars in this section, reports the receipt today of four new cars. Two are five passenger cars. one a closed car and the other a seven passenger touring model.

The Villa forces com prised nearly 4OO men.    j Five wealthy merchants and1 ranchmen of Muzquiz are reported in the hands of the Villislas who are holding them for $10,000 each.j The outcome of the fight at Palnu was in doubt at the time the report was received here. It was believed the Villa Com was endeavoring to return to the state of Chihuihua with loot taken in the Musquis raid which took place early Thursday. Officials Are Still Alarmed Over Fuel Situation Is Report By Kerns’ Sfccitl Service WASHINGTON. Dec.    12.—The general fuel acuation and restric-| tion of the use of coal today werej under discussion by the central com-i in i I tee for the purpose of furthering! economy. Consumption has been so much greater than production that officials here are alarmed by the rapid depletion of reserve stocks. No substantial increase iii the amount coal mined is expected before Monday. Railroad administration figures showed that on Dec. IO, the last day for which complete reports have been made, there were moved 15,752 cars of coal ae compared with the daily average of 38,882 cars in the* banner week of October. Officials said a return to maximum production was imperative if disaster was not to result. -a-- ELEVEN MILLION DOI JAR CROP THIS YEAR WASHINGTON. Dec. 12.-—The total value of the country’s important farm crops this year aggregated $11,092,740,000, the department of agriculture estimated today in its final report. This compares with $12,006,526,000. the aggregate value of last year's crop as finally reported. The present planted crops is estimated at 359.134,473 acres compared with 356.497,166 acres last year.

To the damage of of the fire department is attributed! the German rate of exchange, con-as the causes of the loss of the.tlnues Vorwaerts, the German** ber-plant. It is said that a duplicate gar g^Hg    wor^    mMu of the paper’s mailing lists, which was in a fireproof vault, was saved. The paper was established in April, 1911, and during the first five years of its existence, under the direction of Marvin Brown as managing editor, it attained the unprece ket at what prices he can: get and ignores the opportunities to get foreign moneys into Germany and thereby raise the mark. Capitalists who find tax evasion profitable refer to the German eco- civil fill nim -u\ Charity Begins at Home (No. 3) Ada needs a home for the poor and needy. A home after the fashion of the old-time “Poor House” is not needed and not to be thought of. But a home where temporary eases of charity can be taken and cared for is one of the vital needs of the city. az When the blizzard came the other day it found some of the unfortunates without either money or fuel. They had to be cared for in the best way possible. Available homes for all of these could not be found at once. It became necessary to take some of them to a hotel. This was an unnecessary expenditure of both time and money. If a home known as a refuge for the needy had been available, the unfortunate ones could have gone at once to that refuge. It would not have been necessary for Rev. Damron to canvass for possible accommodations and to seperate families that they might be accommodated. When people are suffering and need help, they need it at once. Charity to be efficient and give value received must be centralized. This truth was apparent to the Red Cross and the United Charities Monday when they merged their activities. A central location or home for charitable purposes is one of the needs of Ada. It is needed to husband the resources of the charitably inclined. It is also needed to afford immediate relief. It is needed also to provide a place where all donations may be sent or taken. But a monthly budget of $200.00 will not be sufficient. Our ten thousand population are giving one postage stamp each month to organized charity. They would gladly give two stamps or three stamps each month if the matter was only properly presented to them. They have never failed to answer a call for charity overseas. They know that charity really begins at home. By the Annodated Press WASHINGTON. Der. 12.—The Lyceum Theater, known before the Civil War as the Washington Assembl Hall, which for nearly a century has played the principal part in the social life of the presidents and in which five presidential inaugural halls were held, was litttle more than a mass of ruins today. Fire started about midnight from a lighted cigarette thrown into a crowded gallery, imperiled th© lives of about 2.000 persons and damaged the building and contents to the estimate of $75,000, it was said to-da\ by those in charge. Harvey’s restaurant, another establishment famous for its gatherings of notables before the Civil War, and which was adjoining the Lyceum, was slightly damaged.  * - Bolshevik Attacks Continue Along the Esthonian Frontier By Av«>< inttxl Frew LONDON. Dec. ll.- Bolshevik attacks continue along the Esthonian front south of the Gulf of Finland and east of Narva, according to an official Esthonian statement issued Wednesday night. AN attacks have been repulsed by the Estonians, it is said. Bolshevik forces have again heavily attacked the left flank of General Denektue’g army and have driven the Lettish forces back to a depth of 30 or 40 miles along a Iront of from 300 to 400 miles long. The Reds are swinging around to the southeast of Kiev which is also threatened from the northeast, according to news from South Russia. The situation gives rise to grave anxiety.
