Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager TO PARIS OR BERLIN? Germany is endeavoring to push her Tray to Paris with feverish anxiety, and to reach her objective she will put forth a supreme effort. The fact of the Hussion troops being not only on her eastern frontier, but well into it, is enough to give a new incentive tb her desired move. If East'Prussia falls into the hands the Russians, and they become strongly established there, it will need a mighty effort oa the part of the Germans to dislodge them. If, as is stated, the Russians already prac- tically have possession of Kouigs- ftturg, it will not take them long to gain a hold on Dantzig, and with this the command a fairly large strip of the German 'Baltic coast. If, therefore, the German march to Paris is delayed much longer by the Allies, we should not he surprised to Hear the German legions thunder- ing hack to defend their own capital.: Much depends on the progress of the Russian advance as to whether Germany will persevere in her first plan of campaign.

He has determined in previous experiments that a hoed or cultivated crop such as corn or turnips, has very nearly as beneficial an effect as a summer fallow, on which no crop is :raised. 'But the difficulty in inducing fann- ers generally to-raise field corn has been" almost: too great to overcome. There is no assurance that a field of corn will ripen, although it has foieen matured in many localities in the south. If field corn were raised ex- tensively here it would need to be cut as fodder to be of much use. The ex- tent of the live stock industry so far does not warract the erection of a siSo on very ma'ny farms, and without silo the fodder cannot be kept sue-, culent and green, hence cannot be utilized to any advantage. We can bank on it that squaw corn will- ripen every year. But squaw corn grows to a" height of only two or three feet, and the" fodder value of. the stalks hardly justifies the expense of cutting. Mr. Fairfield points out, however, that squaw corn performs the same service to the soil as a hoed crop, and has the added qualification over other varieties of maturing early. The stalks are so short that picking the ears would lie an endless and ex- pensive task. But why not use the field of ripened grain as a fall and winter pasture? Hogs or cattle would pick the corn without much waste, and at the same, time the soil would Tecelve, a good manuring, while the heavy blunt stubbie left would catch and hold all-the winter's, snows, turn- ing 'it to _gopil account in tbo early spring. Tho stalks would also make good and would be harvested by the stock.without any expense. Mr, ;Fairfleld Is now engaged In do- while using the idea explained Jn'the interim, is to combine the fodder qualities of the standard field" corn with the early-maturing and hardy qualities of the squaw corn, hy breed- ing up each year. FRENCH CHAIN ROYAL CAPTIVE Kaiser's Nephew. Refuses Promise Not to Run Paris, Sept, von Schwerin, nephew of the German Emperor, was amoiig the prisoners sent toward-the west from the zone of fighting. His hands .ruid feet were chained, because he refused to give his-word that he would not escape. He had with him a sword given him by Emperor-William. Count Leo Tolstoi, the Russian wri r, prophesied the present Europea conflict a few months foefore he died He loretold the Balkan trouble o 1912, the resultant international com plications, and finally the world' struggle now in progress. Only on broad discrepancy is noticeable in th time set for the precipitation th present war. Tolstoi thought it wouk occur ia 1913. The facts are contained in a lette sent the American press by Countes Nastasia Tolstoi, in January, 1913, in which it is explained how Tolstoi'; prophecy came to be given" to tin world. The Countsss says that whei visiting the Czarina at Peterhofl Gas tie in October, 1910, she was present ed to the Czar, who entrusted her with. th.e mission which resulted in Tolstoi's remarkable prophecy being given to the world. Permission to publish the matter has been grantet by the Czar. His Majesty told her the Kaisei and the King of England desired to communicate directly with Count Leo Nicblaevitch Tolstoi.- Not being on very good terms with the Count himself, tie' Czar, knowing the Countess was Tolstoi's grand niece, asked her to assist him. "Tell said the Emperor, "that if he will send me, through you, a friendly communication to the Kaiser and the King of England, I -vrill for- ward it to them, but it must fee some- thing-he has and which he shall never publish." A --eek later, as she-was visiting her uncle, the Countess told "Tolstoi of the Emperor's request, and the fol- lowing conversation took place: -Visions of War I'would 'be happy -if I Yes, isirt "FORCE" just delicious, Dad?
