Loadon, AUK. Japan has borrowed most.of her military science from Ekirope, she taught In return, the enormous value of secrecy In warfare: All the powers engaged In the European death grapple have learned that lesson. Reports from Belgium sty that the German prisoners have no regimental Insignia on their uniforms, and have been instructed .to -refuse information as'to what regiments they are attach- ed to. in 1870 the'English newspaper! gave full accounts of the German and French regiments, .where they were, an8' what regiments composed .each army. The commands and personali- ties of all ,lhe leading generals .-were widely known. Over all these details the armies en- gaged In the war theatre la western Europe, excepting perhaps the Bel- gians, have folded, a. shroud, of .mys- tery concerning the men who will play the greatest parts In the drama.

The great mobilization appears to have proved one fact: that even'the German organization, when put to the test under real war conditions, could not move as fast as expected. The great, swift battle on the French fron- tier, which was due laat week, has not yet begun, so far kno'wri, or per- haps it may be today. The British army permits a few war correspondents to take the field, hilt under strict rules. The French staff prohibits correspondents at the front from using the telegraph. The Rus- sian army will have no correspondents, and the German staff is known strong- ly to disapprove of them. yield on tfce Reserve will this jear reach 41 high as bushels Oats are also extensively grown and will show a good yield.
