" W. J. Nelson and Co. COR. THIRD AVE. A SEVENTH ST. OUTH-SHERLOCK BUD6.- ? Can It Be Made Absolute? : ? ? : : : : : : : : : : > (By Arthur Pollen In tho London Chronicle.) The recent IT boat inva-^lon ot American waters has been so successful in tonnage sunk, without any niipar-yn't compensatiu'j loss of subma.'ines, that we may be finite sura that ;i will bo repeated on a more ambitious scale. Wa can. 1 think, he equally sure that the scale cannot be incr9'.i-,ei without ths risk to U boats being mugniricd out of all proportion. For the Amer-icau Navy Depjirnnriut will certainly see that the coast-wise and Caribbean trafflc is, so to speak, canalised and, It necessity arises, will extend convoy protection to its more important units. This incident lends a new Interest to the whole problem ot Jefoat-Ing the conscienceless attempt to paralyse the world's trafflc, and onco more provokes us to ask the question; Is the absolute and complete defeat ot the subii-.arlne a practical possibility? In spite ot what the Navy has done and ot the very changed condition of things today from what they wore a year ago, the problem is still intensely Horious. Speaking at Edinburgh a week or two ago, the Prime Minister conllrrjied, with the full authority of the Admiralty, what some observers had aready boon rash enough to Inter from the pubialied figures. Ho told from t lie published llgures. 1 le told us that tho Gorman submarine, still a nuisance. Hardly more though no longer a menace, was than a year ago It was a menace of appalling dimensions., Tho German plan and tha German expectation was to destroy a million tons of British shipping a month and to Irigh ten all neutral shipping oil' the seas. For two weeks in tho month of April 1917, the enemy attained this rate of destruction and, indeed, surpassed it. In the three months, April, May Juno, he sank between 1,300,000 and 1,400,000 tons ot British Bhipplng alone, and very nearly i�00,000 ot neutral ami Allied shipping. To call this a "menace" only Is to understate the case. It was a senteuco ot death-It it could have continued. Today not only Is he Binking much less than half ot this, but w.ltli American help wo are building nearly twico as mucli tonnage us wo were building then. Clornuuiy's immediate strategic aim, then. Is defeated, lor Allied tonnage Is growing and not diminishing. Anti-German Cargo Loss. But It tho word "menace" understated the position ot a year ago, the word "nulaanco" undorstatoB tho present, posttion. For in tho month ot April tho world lost over 300,000 tons of shliiping and cargoes to corrnspond. Herr Deruburg,- In his rocjeiit spooch, said that the average caiigo ton was worth .eHB. and that it cost JESO to replace a ton of shipping. At this rate the submarine war has already cost the antl-Oerman world over �1,260,-000,000, and must now be (taxing ub at the rate ot over �300,000,000 a year. .The economic loss, tho dislocation of plana, and th^ embarrassment to our 'military action Involved-all ot these are rabat formidable dlsttdvantages, and the enemy can still impose them on us. Tho nuisance, then is In the vulgar phrase, un "a.v;irti)V tKiisanca," THE CHILDREN'S "Ready to Wear" Department is ropliic with such a dainty and serviceable airay of garments.

I -VALUE IS THE KEYNOTE OF OUR NEW FALL GOODS' so bad in fact that we are compelled to ask if the measure."; that have ended tho submarines as a menace can bo expected to put an end to it altogether, oi; at least so greatly hamstring it-if you can hamstring a creature that has no hind legs!-that its depredations can be expected to be negligible? To answer this question Involves examining liow the efUciency of the submarine has, in tuct been halved during tho last 12 montlis. Wo can then judge whether, any or all of the methods employed bear In themselves tho hope of a eoinplelo and radical cure ot this ghastly evil. Tho anti-submarine campaign may bo divided into two sides. One consists ot measures of dotonce-as interposing between tho submarine and its intended victim, with a view to defending that victim by sinking or threatening to sink llio submarine. The other consists of iiiensuros of of-fenco-namely, either mothods of tlnd-ing the submarine iwhcn at largo and then pursuing it till U is dealroyed-or methods which, if the submarine tries to get to sea, will automatically block his passage, or linally stopping It from putting to soa. Tho llrst involve tho tactics of defence, tho second tho tactics ot oiTenoo. The tactics of dcfonco are made up as follows: (1) Tho convoying ot ships by destroyers, sloops, trawlers and sub-murines. (2) The arming of merchant ships. '.;t) Tho careful idowing of cargoes, so that ships when hit remain afloat. ,(4) Cnmoutiage. Tlip tactics of offence consist of: (5) Dincoverlng tlio submarine by aircraft or hydrojihone and thei) running It down by destroyers and annihilating it by depth charges. (0) Stalking submarines at night when they have to come to tho surface to recharge their battorios. (7) The malntmuinco ot mine barrages across ro,utos which submarines must take to got to their field ot operation, (S) Tho destruction ot tho bases from which tho submarines issue.

Late summer is not too late to preserve eggs, but care must be taken that thay are stricly fresh. Two mehods ot preserving eggs are recommended by spoolallats. Water-glass Method. . Ij'se I quart of sodium silicate to !) quarts ot water that has been boiled and cooled. Place tho mixtuhe in a 5-gallon crock or jar. This will be sulll-cioul to preserve 15 dozen oggs; and the (luantlty needed to preserve a larger number of eggs will bo la proportion. ' First, .select a S-galloii crock and dean it thorouglily, after which it should he scalded and allowed to dry. Second, boat a quantity of water to tho boiling point aud allow It to cool. Third, whon cool, measure out 9 quarts ot water, place in tho crock, and add 1 quart of sodium silicate, stirring the mixture thoroughly. Fourth, place'the eggs In the soUv tlou. Bo vory careful to allow at least 2 Inches of the solution to cover the eggs. Fifth, place the crock containing the jiresorved eggs In a cool, dry place, well covered to prevent evaporation. Wuxod paper covered over aud tied around tho top ot the crock will answer this purpose. When water glass cannot be obtained tho following methods' may be used In it.s stead. Many consider this method entirely satlafactory, though Instun cos are known In which eggja so pre served, huvo tasted slightly ot lime. Lime Method.
