Tho rapidly widening lnko In southeastern Arkansas, formed by tho flood vators of tho Arkansas river pouring through breaks In tho levees, had engulfed a scoro of towns, leaving several thousand persons homeless. Sixteen lives have been lost In tho last fow days and damage that probably will run Into hundreds of thousands of dollars has resulted In tho rich farming territory. Still greater damago Is feared If tho Mississippi continues to rise ns In tho last fow days. Predicted stages nt Arkansas City would endanger tlicj? levees there nnd a break In tho Mississippi lovecs and would precipitate a serious situation In tho river valley. AH day 700 men who remained In Arkansas City tolled In an effort to strengthen tho lovecs against tho fast rising waters, and they were hopeful that tho levees would hold and tho town bo saved. Tho narrow strip of lovee Is tho only land In sight there. On one side Is the river, swollen until Its surface Is fifteen feet above tho level of tho town. On tho other sldo of tho levee Is tho great flood lake, nearly forty miles long and twenty miles wide. From It only tho upper stories of buildings In .Arkansas City protrude. At tho levee arc three steamboats, one of which Is ready to carry tho workers to safety should they loso their battlo with the flood.

Ilerlln's latest memorandum on the Lusltanii controversy can ho mnclo the basis o' an amlcalilo settlement, according to Information which came from a liltfh ndmlnlgtrntlon source. Whether tho final agreement can take the exact form of the llerlln memorandum remains to bo determined nt tho conference which the president and Secretary Lansing are expected to hold. At nil events the communication which Ambassador Hernstorff handed to the secretary has Improved tho outlook. This Information coming from an unquestioned source, confirms an Impression which has steadily grown In tho last twenty-fou- r bouts that nil prospects of a rupture In th relations between tho two governments havo been removed for the present. So optimistic are certain officials that they expect an announcement from the state department within the next two or three days which will remove all apprehension ns to a break. It Is understood that the president nnd Secretary Lansing will have met nnd made up their minds definitely before the cabinet meets on Tuesday. Tho only point now at Issue rests on tho acceptability of the eight words used by the llerlln foreign office to avoid tho expression "Illegal." The United States wanted Germany to say that she would pay Indemnity because tho attaek on the Lusltania, resulting In tho killing of 11.' Americans, was Illegal Germany has offered Instead to say that sho will pay Indemnity because, inasmuch as Americans were on the vessel, the attack should not have been made. In German circles It was said that but for the interview given out In llerlln by Secretary of Foreign Affairs Zimmerman, calling attention to tho refusal of Germany to employ the word Illegal tho American public might never havo noted the omission, so close does the expression actually used correspond with "Illegal." Count von Bernstorff, according to his friends, Is more than ever confident that Germany's proposals aro going to bo accepted by tho United States. Anticipating that the American government would accept the final proposals of llerlln In their entirety. It Is said that tho ambassador before going to tho state department drew them up In tho shapo of a formal note. In this form they are now before the president. Should he accept the terms sst forth In the communication, olliclalfl say this note could be published as Germany's reply to tho American noto ot July 21, tho last formal communication from Washington to Herlln. If, however, the president Insists on any slight modification. It Is probablo that tho ambassador will havo to communicate with his government Tho community which tloiw not do tonni work, in other wordn.

Urges Universal Service. General Wood begun his testimony with a dlcusslnn of the Chamberlain bill, which provides for universal service In the continental army and n con- SOME PRACTICAL THOUGHTS 1.2.V) FOR THE FARMER siderable strengthening of the regular forces. He said the bill was sound in principle, but that he had recommended n greater lnerono In Infantry, artillery and engineers. He also urged that until the reserve had been built up the regiments should bo kept at war strength of l.'0 men to a company instead of 112. He believed the universal service system proposed by the Chamberlain bill absolutely essential to any adequate military policy. (By K. E. Glasscock.) Dear Mr, Babbage: Will you please allow me space in your paper to ex- press my ideas about some things in our county which have taken place in the last few years? I consider the Hreckenridge Loose Leaf House at General Wood outlined his own views as to the present needs of the regular army, regardless of any volunteer or compulsory short term service plan. He urged the following, all at full war strength: For the Philippines, four regiments of Infantry, two of cavalry and one and a half of artillery; for Hawaii, sis infantry, one cavalry and two field for I'anama, four infantry, one artillery and n squadron of cavalry. Reasons For Larger Navy. Explaining why he wanted n larger standing army than the house bill provides, General Wood said: "For the Continental army I would have six complete Infantry divisions, two cavnlry divisions of six regiments each, six regiments of heavy mobile artillery. In nddltlon to the two regiments of field artillery with cncli division, and enough engineers to have a bnttalllon with each division nnd n pontoon battalion with each three divisions. The artillery provision of two regiments to a division gives seventy-twguns to rllles. which Is about five guns u thousand rilles. rather less than the European standard. "The total makes about 210.000 men. not Including ollicers. but Including auxiliaries. In the United States you would have about HiO.OOO Infantry and o Hardinsburg the greatest enterprise gotten up by the people of Hreckenridge in the labt ten year.'-One tiling about this house, it has. put vim in people to raise tobacco that never did raise it before, and also boys and girls and the women are going to raise the weed, because they can cut the tobacco, let it cure, strip it out and load on wagon, haul it there today and sell it tomorrow, and get their money next day. You ste how nice this is done. Yet there is one great thing lacking, and that is the road question. What can we do with good crops of tobacco and corn and wheat, and no roadf whereby we can haul our stuff over to market. We will say lor argu ment sake, that I raised five thousand pounds of tobacco and to haul only six ind a half miles to the loose leaf lloor Now, the way the roads are today, it would take four days to haul this to market, and four horses to one load of . pounds to a load. If I had to hire one man and two horses it would cost me t for the team of two horses and ?1 for the K'an for each four days which would amount to 12. Now the feeding of this team would cost me 3O cents ptr winch would day for each horse, amount to 2 40 for the two, and the mnu's board at least 3(1 cents a clay for four days, would amount to $1.20. All told would amount to Sis (it) with the roads in the present condition. Now, if I had a mettle road from my farm to market, I could easily haul 2,500 pounds with two horses or two mules. Now you ee what I could save in marketing one crop and only be out two days with my own team. Mends, wake up. tte will never have any better roads than we have now until we issue bonds. I very well remember the roa Is 25 years ago were just as good as they are touay. mil look what this county has spent in the last 2o years on these same old mud ways and sinkholes.

( W Iondon, Feb. 7. The Franco-Britiscampaign In the Knmcrun, a German protectorate In westorn equatorial Africa, reached n triumphant conclusion when 900 Germans and 14,000 colonial troops crossed Into Spanish Guinea and wore disarmed and Interned. This blow to Oermnn arms repro-Bentone of the greatest single strokes for the nllles since the war began. It Is hailed with enthusiasm here because the Germans, Interned In Spanish Guinea, are rendered as harmless as If thoy had surrendered. Tho following official statement comes froir. Madrid and Is as follow "Nino hundred German European and 14,000 German native troops have crossed the border into Spanish Guinea, where thoy have been Interned." A centering of activity on the west, on tho Belgian and Artois fronts, Is noticeable in the official statements, thus adding weight to the prophecies of a forthcoming German drive In this sector In another effort to reach Calais. The British and French artillery Is very actlvo In this region, apparently for the purpose of hindering the German preparations for the groat drive. Tho Germans have displayed great activity in the use of mines recently along the northern part of the battle life. British forces occupied the "western sides of three mine craters road Aiear the Vermelles-La-lBasse- e and early In tho morning occupied an edge of the crater formed by tho explosion of a German mine north of s Loos. The Germans bombarded Ypres. There was artillery activity about about Frlse to tho north of L,a Bassee canal, and about Wytschaete and Ypres, while the allied guns did severe damage to tho German organizations before Boeslnghe.

Both faces wore the" Christmas smile, tho smilo which tells tho story that "Christmas comes but once a year, But when It conies It brings Good Cheer." Gradually tho smilo died in the worn-- ' an's eyes and tho curve of her Hps straightened Into a hard line. Her glance left the flickering flames to run over tho row of grotesquely fat stocking along tho edgo of tho mantle. Slowly sho arose, walked Into an adjoining room, and looked at tho rosy fat cheeks of her brood of youngsters who were dreaming of the glorious morrow. When she again dropped on tho stool by the man's side, ho turned to ask: "They aro all snug an' sound asleep, dreaming of Christmas Day, ain't they, little woman?" "Yes," she answered, listlessly. Putting his hand under the woman's chin ho lifted Iter face to look deep Into her eyes before he said: "Something's worryln' you. What Is it? Don't let's start out tho night before Christmas with any worry on our minds. Have you forgot to get somo present for one of tho children, or what?" Sho nodded her head emphatically and explained: "Yes, that's It exactly. We've forgotten all about the best present of them all and ono that lasts all the year." "Well, but what Is It?" "It's the school." The man began to laugh and then checked himself as he saw tho pain In his wlfo's'face, so he merely said, quietly: "Go ahead, llttlo woman, nn' tell mo what's on your mind." "Hero It is. I've been sitting here thinking of all the thought and love we have put Into the children's stockings so that Christmas may bring them good cheer. I've thought of all tho parents who love their children, as you and I love ours, and I havo sorter pictured everybody In this neighborhood well-filled planning and spending for tho chll. dren's pleasure "Well, don't you think that's all right?" he asked her as ho put his hand over her's whero It rested on tho arm of his chair. "Oh, yes, of courso I do. I want tomorrow to bo tho happiest day tho children have over known; but there's a bigger thing than Christmas that wo havo forgotten, and that's tho school-hous- e whore they go day after day." "What do you want for the children In the way of a school?" the man asked. The woman did not answer the question, but went to the mantle nnd picked up n small electrical toy abovo her son's stocking. For a moment she held It In her hand nnd then asked: "Why did you buy this for Jim?" "I bought It becauso he's wild about electricity and It's tho newest electrical toy I could find." "That's just what I expected you'd say. The parents in this neighborhood have bought their children toys, oven If they had to borrow some money with which to do it. They want to bo a real Christmas for the kids." "What about tho school, little woman? It seem3 to mo you're doing a lot of beating around the bush." "No, I'm not, I'm trying to get you to the point where you'll see that, whllo we are dressing our children In 20th Century clothes, giving them 20th Century toys, and 20th Century fruits and candies, we haven't provided a 20th Century schoolhouse, nor a 20th Century school system. I mean that these preparations," and her gesture took in the bulging stockings and the toys on the mantle, "come but once a year and do not have much of an effect on tho child's life. What wo need is to give our children, especially those that live under the blue skies that cover our farms, real schools, no matter what they cost. If parents would only use spirit In some of t,he Christmas-givindeveloping our country schools, tho country would be so much happier for the women and the children from one year's end to another."
