This is made evident by the discount of nearly 50 per cent, for the German mark in the exchanges on these countries which reflects .as well their large and enormously profitable export The only way to increase the number of sheep in this country or even to maintain the present number is to save some ewe lambs. Furthermore, no sheep owner has any business depend ing upon the other fellow doing it. It is a personal ' matter. If each man does not save his own ewe lambs he deserves to do without. It may be difficult to carry the lambs through the summer, but we can do it' successfully if proper methods are used, Here and there all over the sections farmers are carrying lambs through the summer successfully and disproving the fallacy that they will have to die. It is mainly a matter of dodg ing the stomach worm, and this can begone by changing pasture often. It is desirable to change the sheep once a week through the hot part of the summer and less frequently as the days become cooler. After the sheep are removed from a field they should be kept off for as long a period as prrctical. sheep-produci- ng orchard that is in grass or to some pasture that has not had sheep on it for months for a week or ten days. Then by moving around for short periods from one field to another the lambs may be brought to the time when they can be turned into the corn fields to eat weeds and grass along the fence. They will hurt the corn little or none. After staying there until moving is desirable they may be moved to a second corn field. By that time they may be moved back to a meadow or wheat stubble, but not with the old sheep, if the latter have been kept in one field long. They can be moved from the meadow or wheat stubble to a pasture that has not had sheep on it since spring and from there to a fall pasture of rye, oats, barley or crimson clover.

Officials, who foe obvious reasons, cannot be quoted, declared y that if the Government's activities against German spies in the United States could be published, the news would startle-th- o world. While not admitting they are convinced that the spy system was entirely responsible for the enmassed submarine attack on the transport of Gen. Pershing's expedition, it was said that the combined forces, of the State, War, Navy and Justice departments were working in cohesion, and systematically unearthing information of an amazing character, and of great value to the Government It was pointed out that even with the strictest censorship of mails, cables and press, our allies, have not been able to meet the situation to their complete satisfaction. The problem is of far greater magnitude in this country-wit- h thousands of aliens, an immense border and countless possible means of outside communication. to-da- In the passing of Miss Antha Cab-belon June the 25, 1917, at her home in the Zion neighborhood, the community has lost a splendid Christian lady and the church at Pleasant Hill, of which she was a member from her girlhood, a true and faithful member. She has been afflicted for many years with rheumatism and has suffered much pain and agony, yet she kept a pleasant and cheerful disposition, manifesting much Christian for. t itude and patience. Since the death five years ago, she of her mother-som- e and her brother, Euel, have lived in he home together and by his faithful help and attendance on her a very render tie had developed between them and hence (her going out has brought a great sorrow to the heart of '.er brother, Euel, and to the other members of the family as well.

Secret service operations, necessarily carried on under cover, are given little or no publicity, and this fact, officials say, gives rise to a surmise that little has been accomplished. It was pointed out y that although the allies have never maintained spy systems as or effective as Germany, even that country, despite her registration of individuals, her comparatively small border line and her network of secret police, has been unable to prevent information of her military moves from reaching the outside worfd. Germany's realization of that is shown in her absolute suppression of all mail and cable communications for a considerable period preceding any important military movement. to-dag, About the Draft.

The relief and gratification of officials over the safe arrival of the last units of the expedition is tempered by a manifest feeling of indignation that the German Admiralty was able to lay its plans so well and to attack the American vessels in force fore they reached the zone which had been regarded as most dangerous Discussion of possible spy activities has taken many angles. Some officials were inclined to believe that the Germans must have had a warning of the definite time agreed upon for the crossing, but others discredited anv such theory, arguing that an attack was to have been expected as a natural consequence of the general knowledge that was common property. There were indications that the department of Justice might be asked to undertake an investigation when army ond navy reports on the incident were complete. NO FURTHER REPORT.

London was subjected Saturday to an air raid on perhaps a larger scale than any the Germans had previously at tempted. A score or more of airplanes flew over the center of the city, diving down suddenly to a comparatively low altitude, dropping their i brmbs quickly and speeding off south ward. Their explosives caused- some damage in the heart of London and persons and injured willed thirty-seveMl. These official figures show the casualties to have been not nearly so hravy as in the big raid of June 13, m lien 151 persons were'killed and 430 jured. On that occasionthe Germans lost one machine, according to the British r hough Berlin claimed all Its returned safely. This time, h iwever, four of the German Eaiders were brought down, one by army aviators at the mouth of the Thames and i .iree after an engagement with British naval aviators forty miles out at sea on the return trip. Furthermore, British Airmen at Dunkirk, across the channel, who went out looking for the raiders and failed to find them, did such effective tepressive work on other German aircraft that seven hostile machines were tccounted for within a brief period. - At the Navy Department it was sSid last night all information which had come through was contained in Secretary Daniels' statement of Tuesday telling how the expedition had encountered two attacks, one of them before reaching the place agreed upon as a a rendezvous with Admiral Sims' American destroyers, and had success fully fought off the and destroyed at least one of them. The Secretary said he might receive a more detailed account later, but ii was pointed out that there was little likelihood that it would throw much light on the genesis of the Ger man attack or the information back of it. Officials taking the view that there is no ground for a spy scare suggested that it inevitably was :i matter of public information that the crossing of the expedition would follow soon aftr Gen. Pershing's announced arrival in France. It therefore would not be unusual, these officials argued, if the German 'were given general orders to cruise in squadrons across various ocean lanes in the hope that one of the squadrons woujd intercept the Americans. ts U-bo- at n -- ma-chin- os parently with a similar purpose. Attacks were made by the Crown Prince's troops last night on the French lines west of Mont Cornillet and southeast of Tahure. The drives evidently were not of such intensity as was that earlier in the week along the Aisne, and the Paris official report says they were easily repulsed. The artillery fighting is proceeding vigorously in these and other sectors of the Champagne. In the Verdun region also the French guns are active. With the evident effort of making the German trenches west and North of Hill 304 untenable, General Petain's artillery is pouring a desnructive fire upon them. Apparently the Crown Prince has none to secure a hold on such ground here as his troops were able to seize in their sudden rush a few days ago. London is reticent as to what is going on along the British front in France, where there have been some important movement wasln prospect. The only activity reported was a nocturnal raid on British outposts near Bullecourt, which was repulsed. In Macedonia there is sone revival of activity, but seemingly not on a large scale Enemy troops, probably Bulgarians, launched an assault on the ridge west.of Doljoli, southwest of Lake Doiran, but were compelled by a British counter-attac- k to relinquish the footing thej obtained. indica-tions,that Christmas time they were selling at three pounds for twenty-fiv- e cents.

Within a few days most corn will be laid by. It would be plan to drill a row of peas between the corn rows. If sown now tney will mature about corn cutting time. They can then be picked and stored for winter. If desired for hay, it is not a difficult matter to pull the vines by hand or cut them with a corn knife about the time the earliest pods are full grown. This plan would help provide means of making many an old cow smile on winter evenings when otherwise she might weep, and it certainly is a quicker way to gather fodder and better fodder than pulling the fodder from corn. If the 'peas are not desired in any of the above ways, hogs can be turned info tne corn held when the peas begin getting ripe and thereby be enabled to take on a good many pounds without injuring the corn. Of course Ahe.ordinary speckled cOw peas can be substituted for th.6 black-eye- d type, but most people prefer the blackeyed pea or the 'crowder' when they are to be used for the table. M. H.

That the first attack should have occurred on this side of the usual submarine zone also was regarded by these officials as natural The Germans, they said, must have expected Admiral Sims to send . his war ships from their North Sea stations well to the west to "meet the expeditions. There was little Inclination any. where to attach blame for the attack to any official act of the War or Navy Department.

The Southern or Blackeyed Pea. It is a common practice injmany parts of the south to sow cow peas between the rows of corn after the corn is laid by. This practice ought to be more common. Everybody who has a corn field ought to do it. There is a form of cow peas called the blackeyed pea, and another called the 'crowder,' that not only makes good food for stock'and improves the soil, but makes good food for people , too. Some people begin to use the ppds of these peas while they are still ten der just as they use snap beans. They are best, however, after they become large enough to shell. They can then be used like Ibutter beans'.' either while green, or when they have fully ripened they can be kept all winter and used as dried beans are used. The Demand for Them is Growihe. Last fall they were sold green on the Nashville market in trays that would holdaboufc a pint. Later they were sold dry by the pound.
