McXeely lost his llfo when the British steamship Persia was torpedoed and sunk In the Mediterranean Thursday afternoon. Ho was last scon struggling In tho water. There Is no mention of his nuno In nny of the lists of survivors so far received. He was on his way to Aden. Arabia. No wamlttR was given the Persia before tho torpedo wa3 launched, according to authoritative information. It Ms understood that llobert P. Skinner, American consul general here, has information In his possession that out of a total of 400 passengers and crew on tho steamer only 153 were saved. This number of survivors has arrived at Alexandria, Egypt. It Is possible that a few more may bo added. Tho number of lives lost was, therefore, 247, making the Persia second only to the Lusltanla loss among the list of passenger steamers sunk by German and Austrian submarines. Of the 153 saved only 59 were passengers, the others being members of tho crew. women There were eighty-seveamong the passengers. Of these only seventeen are known to have been picked up. In addition, there were thirty children. It is feared that all of the latter lost their lives. Charles H.

Twenty other counties liavu asked for and ueun granted such aid and are now preparing road to begin work. The state-wid- e building movement Is on in earnest, and it is here to stay. At the two penitentiaries, at Frankfort and Eddyvllle, there aro 2,000 men convicts. A largo proportion of that number are physically capable of working on the roads. Instead of being so worked, they are let out to prison contractors at an annual loss to tho stato. At the coming election, a constitutional amendment to work tho convicts on tho roads Is to be voted on. It has been twice submitted by the General Assembly and once adopted by tho people. That adoption was nullified by a failure to advertise the amendment within tho prescribed 90 days, Tho necessary advertising has now been done. Tho whole question Is In tho hands of the voters, and botli political parties have declared for adoption In thei state platforms. Tho prison contractor Is opposed to udoptlcm. It will put an end to Organized labor is a his profits. unit on wanting to see tho amend-mon- t adopted. It will put an end to convict competition with freo labor. It will put men at work on tho roads where there Is now n scarcity of labor. In tho stato of Virginia, it was found that convict labor effected a saving of $1,500 a milo In tho cost of building roads. In a scoro of other states, whero this labor Is used, It has boon demonstrated that roads can bo built with contract labor at half tho cost of freo labor. Convict Inbor on the roads has proved good for tho stato and good for tho convict. It has helped him physically and morally. It has, in many Instances, restored him to good citizenship, and a convict re stored to good citizenship is an asset; a convict released to follow a llfo of crime, is a liability.

WOK KING CONVICTS ON PUBLIC ROADS. Only one prison will be needed in Kentucky if the convict labor amendment is properly put into execution by the State government, Commisis the opinion of Daniel O'Sullivan, chairman of the Pri-o- n sion. He said in part: "The Hiiccess of road building with convict labor must bo determined by the needs of the particular locality, its ability to finance the work, the material the various counties are able to supply and the climatic conditions, which, after al , may be the determining factor. In Georgia where an admirable system of roads is being built with convict labor, the prisoners work every day in the year, while in Kentucky the sea.-o-n for outdoor work would not exceed nine months. What is to bo done with the prisoners during the three remaining months is a question the Legislature and tho The coming Legnow Prison Commissioners must answer. devise a plan that will keep approximately islature must 1,800 prisoners employed.

This suggestion will naturally not bo received with favor either at Eddyvillo or Frankfort. IIowevcr.it is plain that when the convicts arc put on tho roads wo will need only ono prison.

Propped up against the house of tho native chief of Yap, which Is one of tho Caroline Islands lying southeast of the Philippines, may bo seen n row of "money stones," the current coin of tho Island. In shape these stones are like millstones, but tliey do no grind ing. They serve simply as n parado of the wealth of tho village. Their value lies solely In the diliiculty with which they are obtained. The yellowish granite of which they are made Is found only In the Island Of I'ulao, 200 miles away, and when the monsoon favors forty or llfty natives voyage there In their canoes. After pacifying the king of Talao with presents the work of hewing the wala-kor money stones, begins, lasting for mouths until the monsoon changes, when the tollers start homeward witli their "coin." The smallest of these stones Is ubout a foot in diameter and three inches thick, with a round hole through its center. It will buy food for a' family for a mouth.

Tho heavy draft horse is doomed, lie will not vanish suddenly, but his hour has stiuek. Motor vehicles already are displacing him iu cities. The cheap farm tractor will do the same In tho country. In a few decades the great, magnificent brutes will be little more than a memory. Their places will be taken by bloodless machines, that never whbiny greetings to a kind master, never search olio's pockets for sugar and never break their legs on ley pavements or drag out a friendless old age undci the whips of stupid, greedy drivers.

Examine any one of the statements of equality in the multiplication table of nine, up to and Including nine times ten. Select, for example. UX"C3; or Observe that In each ca.se the first digit In the product Is one less than the number by which nine Is multiplied, and the second digit In the product Is such that when added to the first digit, the sum of the two Is nine. You may make practical use of this peculiarity of nine and Its multiples by applying it lit the following way: If nine Is to be multiplied by eight, for example, think at once of seven (which Is one less than eight, the multiplier); then think of two, which must bo added to seven to maku nine, und you have beventy two, tho product of nine and eight.

Gledware's presence In the boat this morning had been made possible only by tho Interposition of Lahoma. But for the Indian's deep seated affection for her, whom he regarded as a child, the man now smiling Into Annabel's palo face would long ago have found his final resting place. It was duo to the Indian's singleness of thought that Lahoma's plan had struck him as good. Gledwarc, stripped of all his possessions, slinking us a beggar from door to door, no roof, no bed but sky nnd earth that Is what Hed Feather had limits-trade- He had believed Gledware glad of the respite.

Hut the plan had failed because Gledwarc did not believe death was tho other alternative. Never ln the remotest way had It occurred to the avenger that Gledwarc could be spared should lie prove falso to his oath. Ited Feather was less a man with passions than a cold, relentless fate. This fate would surely overcome the helpless wretch should he cling to bis riches. As Jted Feather skimmed the water with long sweeps of his oars, never looking back, the voices of his passengers came to his ears without meaning. He was thinking of the last few days and how this morning's ride was their fitting heipiel. The early sunbeams were full on him as he tilted back his head, but they showed no emotion on his face, hard set ami dully red In the clear radiance. Crouching near the summer houe at Gledware's place, ho had overheard lied Kimball boa.it to bring Gledware the pearl and onyx pin. Then had shot through his darkened mlud the suspicion that Gledware meant to eeape the one condition on wliiWi lil life was to bo spared.

Gledwaro had made his choice; lie had clung to Ids possessions, and now Death held tho oars, lie was scarcely past middle age. He might have lived so long, he who so loved to live!

When Ited Feather brought his mind back to the piesent Gledwaro was describing to Annabel a ranch In California for which hi had traded the house near Independence. He would take her fur away; be would build a hou.su thus and thus rooms so. terraces here, marble pillars. Annabel listened gravely, silently, her face all the paler for the sunlight Hashing over It, for the inluile sun on tile waves glancing up Into her pensive eyes. Somehow tho sunshine, tho ripple of the water seemed to form no pint of Iter life, belonged, rather, to Edgertou Comptou, rowing In solitude against the sky. Those nuked trees, bare, brown hills and ledges of hugu stones seemed her world boundaries, Ulu to her; claiming her Hut there was California and the splendid house to be built. The Indian was listening now, but as he heard projected details glowingly presented no change came In his grim, deep lined face. Ho simply knew It was not lo be. Let the fool plan! "Ilcautlfiil one," ho heard Gledwaro say. speaking In an altered tone, "all that Is In the future but see what I have brought you. This Is for today. It's yours, dear.

BALKAN CRISIS INTENSIFIED Athens Response Increases the Danger of a German Invasion of Greece With the Object of Driving Out the Allies Now Entrenching at Salonlca. Operations In Mesopotamia and On Eastern and Western Fronts. London, Doc. 20. Greece lias sued a formal reply to the Isn Aitsl.ro-Germa- representations protesting against the erection by tho allies of. fortifications around Sulonica. Greece holds herself powerless to prevent the fortifications, which, she say3, are "Indispensable to tho safety of the French expeditionary force." Tho safety of the Anglo-Frenctroops, tho Greek reply Is quoted as pointing out, lias been formally guaranteed by Greece. The reply al30 emphasized that Greece is still Serbia's ally. This reply lntensllles tho Balkan crisis, In that it increases the danger of a German Invasion of Greece, with tho object of drlvlns out the allies. II is not the presence of the allied trpops, but their fortifying Salonlca that forms the chief point at Issue In representations German at the. Athens. In some quarters hero there Is a tendency to the belief that Germany, under a silent agreement with Greece, proposes to allow the situation to proceed to a point where the Hellenic government will bo forced to admit that the allied forces and fortifications have become too strong for Greece to successfully copo with, especially In view of the menace to Greece from tho allied fleets. When that admission Is made, it Is argued Germany will assume the role of Greece's liberator and, with Greek consent, move against Salonlca. Pro- Germans here do not conceal the fact that this is also the view held in Berlin. Meanwhile the Bulgars and Teutons ore scrupulously observing the neu trality zone agreement, keeping strict' ly within the limits of that zone. Tho Germans, in addition to massing add! tional troops on the Greek border, arc accumulating enormous stores ot ammunition, war material and sup pies carried southward along the Bel-railway.

Some of tho birds were held in cnptlvlty, but In nearly every lnstanco theso experiments ro suited in failure, but the birds that woro turned loose and allowed to rear their own young, In practically every instance produced nnd raised a covey Tho result of theso experiments havo so encouraged the Commission that another Importation ot pheasants Is planned, and wo hope to liberate three thousand more of theso birds in tho spring of 1916. Tho distribution of pheasants aroused great Interest, and wo received many requests for set tings of eggs and purchased 800 from a gamo dealer In Pennsylvania, which wero sent by parcels post to those who had applied. Wo also shipped 2G5 from the Kentucky Gamo Preserve on Pine Mountain, In Bell county. Tho reports show that a largo percentage of eggs did not hatch, and where broods wero hatched they soon proved a died, so the distribution failure. It Is unlawful to kill any rlngneck pheasant at any time ot the year, and the Commission appeals to you for your assistance In protecting them un til they Increase sufficiently to permit hunting.

More than 32,614 carcasses of cattle and 6G.000 carcasses of swine wero entirely rejected on nccount of this disease, and In addition, parts of 18,000 cattle nnd 40,000 swine. Hog cholera was responsible for tho next largest loss, nearly 0 swine being condomned entirely on this account.

In the course of its work, the bureau of animal industry, which is in chargo ot thu meat Inspection service, has discovered a new method of destroying trichinae In pork, which is an additional safeguard to human health. Refrigeration at a temperature of 5 degrees, F or lower, for a period of 20 days, will destroy theso parasites which occasionally give rise u in human beings to tho serious known as trichinosis.

Unless pork is known to have been subjected to refrigeration as above indicated, it should bo thoroughly cooked. Tho microscopic examination of pork for tho detection of trichinae has been abandoned as tho usual methods havo proved inefficient. In this connection it is interesting to note that moro swlno wero slaughtered In the past year in establishments under federal Inspection than over before.
