ST. ALBANS, VT., MAT 17, 1918. CASUALTY REPORTS. ; " 'Missing,' In war casualty reports, is a polite term for prisoner. Commanders never like to admit their men aa beng captured. In the hard fight at Seicheprey a month ago the Germans, who made a raid in heavy force on the American lines, claimed 185 prisoners. General Pershing has not. gone into particulars, but almost daily since then lists of 'missing' havo strung along1, on day as many as I!8. Among the number reported missing are a numbtT from Vermont, presumably mtimibers of the 101st Machine Gun Battalion, which was engaged at that time. We doubt -the wisdom of trying to camouflage losses by capture in this way. Parents and frionds would prefer to know that their boys were prisoners than to be confronted with the indefinite word, missing.' "Randolph Herald and News. It becomes increasingly apparent that the war department's casualty list is not a daily record of casualties in our army overseas. When the Germans claimed nearly 200 priosnefs at DClUi cj "in .. silent, and nothing official has been given out about it one way or another.- The-Seicheprey raid took -place April 20. Lieutemant Tenney, of this city, went missing on that day, although it was long afterward that his brother received this information. It was known that Lieuteannt Tenney was in with Massachusetts and Connecticut men. The past few days the casualty lists have recorded the name' of many Connecticut men aa missing in aotion. It is said that two frmnttMlfMif mmnanies were practical ly wiped out in that engaement, yet the war department has told nothing Of course this information cannot fbe withheld on the ground that by re-vealinar it we would give valuable in formation Ito the enemy. In all probability there are imen, or at least officers, in the Germany army who can count, and they know without our telling them, how many of our men they took prisoner. Is the other reason for withholding the full facts a fear that the information would be so crushing as to weaken our morale? That is too school-boyish even to consider. Many people will hold that the war department is in honor bound to get information of casualties to the next "of kin just as promptly as the sad word is flashed under the Atlantic. Also, as The Herald and News points out, if a man is known to be a prisoner, he should be so listed, for missing may mean one of many things, and a parent 'has a right to know the truth. It takes some time to settle down Into a definite policy- in regard to some of these- matters, but the country should make its wishes known so that Washington will at least make its decisions in the light of (full information of what the public desire is. ' THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL. "Attorney-General Barber is out with a statement declining to be a candidate for re-election. It might be a good time to consider the advisability of abolishing this office. It seems difficult to get, for the salary offered, a lawyer whose opinions carry weight, particularly with the legal fraternity." Randolph Herald and News. The office of attorney-general was a storm center at a recent session of the legislature, but it weathered the iblast. No doubt there Is need for such an official, but he must be a lawyer of known ability, one who will command the respect of laymen and lawyers alike. There is a new spirit of public service "growing up m a re-eult of the war. The salary is no longer the one compelling motive of ieh In public service, nor should not . be, and a standard Of excellence should be established and maintained in the office of attorney-general, aa well as In other tuJ)llo office. hi..i will serve to attract men of the iiigU- est ability, the attraction- consisting Erst of service to the stale and second of Che henor of filling a position which the best in the profession had felt honored to hold without regard for the compensation. Because one or two men in an office have not been entirely satisfactory is no reason for abolishing the office, so far as The Messenger can see. NOTABLE BIRTHDAYS TO-DAY. May 17. Schuyler Skaats Wheeler, of Ampere, N. J., who has an international reputation as an electrical engineer and an inventor and manufacturer of electrical apparatus and equipment, is 58 years old to-day. Mr. Wheeler U a native of New York city, who had his special training for his vocation at Columbia University, and was fortunate enough, early in his post-academic career, to win a place on the staff of Air. Edison. It was a time of much initiative, great responsibility, an exceptional opportunity for suitably trained men, and young Mr. Wheeler's talent as an inventor had full chance to develop. Seven years after his graduation, he had organized a thai which was to manufacture many of his own devices and become one of the largest and best known in the industry, and from which he has reaped both widespread fame artd pecuniary profit. His status as an expert may be Inferred from the fact that from 18S8 (to 1895 he served as expert adviser for the New York City Board of Eelectrical Control, at a time when important precedents were being established. Recently Mr. Wheeler has gone to Europe on a special, mission to explain to the French and British governments the system that he has successfully used in his factories by means of which p-r- sons physically handicapped may become self-supporting workers.

"Of all the W2a-pona used in the present war, the machine-gun has unquestionably proved Itself the moat efficient," says a British expert in the Daily Mail "Probably a majority of the casualties in the war have been caused by this weapon; . certainly the greater proportion of the enormous losses during -the fighting of the past few weeks have been so inflicted. "Any type of machine gun In-the hands of a skillful operator has tht sauno destructive effect upon men moving in mass formation that a ktv?n cdg?d scythe has in a field of riper.ed wheat. It cuts broad swaths; nothing can stand aganist it. "A well-s?rved machine-gun is the most formidable thing that attack ing battalions have to face. It is not merely their front ranks that suffer At anything approaching close rang., the bullets will go through the front-rank men, cften through the second rank as well, and kill or wound those immediately behind them." There are several types of machine gun now in use in the British army, su-jii as the Lewis, the Maxim, thi Vitkers, and the Hotchkiss. All art very mobile They can be moved quickly from one ;!:ice to another, advan tajro being taken of any covar that offers. Each class of machine gun has with it a squad of about ton men. She eld they find themselves pressod too closely, they pick up their weapon fall back with it, and reopen fire upor the enemy from the- next favorable position. One authority has declared that ir the field one machine-gun is wort! almost a whole battalion of men armed with rifles. Few soldiers car keep up 15 rounds per iminute rapid-firo with 'a rifle, but a machine-gun can discharge GOO rounds in a minute, and the Vickers can discharge 1,601 rounds, without stopping. Bullets poui from the muzzle in a rapid devastating stream, and as these guns use the same kind of ammunition as a rifle there is little difficulty in keeping them fed. The Lewis gun is described as the most moble. One man fires it, usinj 47 rounds in succession. Beside him is another man who puts on fresh trays of ammunition as required, the change being made in two seconds. Meanwhile other men are hard at work filling trays and passing them on for use. The gun has an effective range of about 1,200 yards and can be fired from a stand or a parapet, the gunner placing the piece to his shoulder as he pulls the trigger. The Maxim and Vickers are fired from a tripod, the gunners squatting with, legs a-straddle, and pressing a key. As long as h keeps his linger on the key the gun continues streaming out bullets as the belts, each holding 250 car-triges, fly through it. Gripping thi handles with both hands, the gunner moves his 'weapon iback and forth, playing on the advancing troops much as a fireman plays a hose on a burning building. Guns of this kind can also be used for putting by barrages, and it is possible to attack with them targets one cannot see.' At . the beginning of the war, the British army had two machine guns to each infantry battalion. The numbei is now much larger. In addition, a special machine-gun corps has been formed.

Tomorrow morning you and I are going Into the mountains to talk with the chiefs. Oinna will go with me. But It must be understood at the agency that you have sent her to Who could you send her to? Ti-owa-konza Is our mother's father. Not even Mr. Dupont knows that," said Redbear. "Before he came here, she ran off with a bad white man. They went to fhe Blackfeet. After a time lie got an arrow through his back. My mother came home. Ti-owa-konza would not see her face. She had to work for the agent till they made us go away to school. Then she died., "Old Thunderbolt your grandfather?" remarked Vandervyn, seizing upon that one fact in the squalid tragedy. "Does he know it?" "I told him so today., Be said, my face But maybe he; will come to like me. He said to bring Oinna for him to look at her." "That's great I We'll tell It to everybody. But remember, not a word about the marriage until after we get rid of Hardy and I am agenU Then things will go all right for all of us. Tou savvy that, Charlie? While you rub down the mare I'll go In and say good-by until tomorrow morning." ' - M CHAPTER VIII. t Best-Laid Schemes. Hardy had gone to the Duponts' for supper when Vandervyn returned to the agency. He made a hasty toilet and followed. Marie met him with marked coldness. This, however, mfft-ed before he had finished his report to Hardy. All agreed that the old chief probably would take a fancy to Oinna, and that, as a result, there would be a fair chance of pacifying the tribe. When Hardy turned to the girl, he found her and Vandervyn exchanging ','lanees and murmuring remarks. His habitual gravity -softened to a smile if wistful sadness. 'At the first opportunity he excused himself. Midnight had passed before the light in the little Rifled parlor of the Dupont house was extinguished. When, at sunrise,: Hardy went for breakfast, Marie's eyes were very bright and her look was pensive. She ite little, and her manner toward Early was cold and ungracious. After the officer left,' Dupont squinted across the table at her and began to scratch his head. "You and Mr. Van burned a lot of oal oil last night. He didn't git far enough along to ask, you to hitch tip with him, did he?" A red blush flamed In the girl's jheeks. Without looking up, she murmured a regretful "No." " "Guess he figureskell wait and see if Hardy is going topust us- up. Like is not he'll skip back east if Hardy ?its sore and chokes off our hold on the mine." "What do you mean? He'd send Reggie away. The stiff, solemn old fogy I hate him !" "Easy, easy, girl!" soothed Dupont "No use plunging when, you're hitched to the snubbing post. Just now he's got us roped. He'll have us all hog-tied If we go to bucking. We've got to make him think we're gentled." "What if we act toward him as w feel?" . i "You don't savvy about that mine. Me and JVogeh discovered It and paid honest for developing It, as you know, Well, we let Mr. Van In on it Then Xogen up and gits killed. That makes it half and half between me and Mr. Van, according to all that's fair and square. But do you believe Hardy will look at it that way? Not by a considerable. He'll talk about it being the tribe's, just because It's on the reservation." j "I see !" The girl's eyes flashed, and her nostrils dilated. "He will rob you and Reggie of a fortune yet you wish me to be nice to him !H "You bet I do! Can't you git the point? He ain't going to be bluffed into quitting. That means we got to make friends with him or lose the mine." "Oh! So that Is It?" "Yep. Worst of It Is he's one of them there fellows what stand so straight they lean backwards. We talked to him about how it would help the tribe if he joined us In opening the mine. He was mighty offish. Guess we'll have to give him Nogen's third to get him into our camp." "What a shame ! The mine Is yours and Reggie's. He hasn't done a thing toward developing it." "I know. But he's the agent He's got us roped. He can rob us of our mine if we don't make friends with him. Now do you savvy?" The girl's thick black eyebrows met In a frown of vexation. "If he Is a man whose friendship must be bought, I do not wish to be pleasant to him."' "It's business, Marie. There ain't no two ways about it Mr. Van's hanging fire, a-waltlng to see If we lose the mine. If we do, he can't afford to marry no poor girl off a reservation." "Very well. I shall make myself agreeable to Captain Hardy. But wait until I am free to pay him out for It !" "Nom d'un chlen !" muttered Dupont at sight of her straightened Hps. "That's the Injun In you. Don't let him see you look that way, till after we git the mine cinched? "I am not a fool, mon pere." Dupont shook his grizzled bead da I But at midday, when Hardy came ABA. s.a. .La .1 7 .. .. 1 f -! i uir uwu uiuutr, iMiirie re ceived his courteous greeting with a graciousness that soon lightened the penlT severity ot his look.

Ut. had already grasped the simple details of tlip agency business, and now, pend- j Inp the absence of Vandervyn and Ked- liear, liad nothing to do except instruct the police in his ideas of cleanliness and discipline. Marie never looked more charming than when on a horse. She took her new friend for a long ride around one of the mountains. Every cliff and rock and piney slope was familiar to her.' She pointed out all the grandest and most beautiful views, and showed herself even better versed In the lore of the wild than she had seemed to be posted on the culture and graces of iMilite society. After that there was no break in her friendly manner toward th? captain for several days. Frequently they took other rides, over or around the nearest hills and mountains. Vandervyn had arranged to be gone a week. There was no cause to discuss the time of his return, and as Marie seldom mentioned him, Hardy was not often annoyed by the vision of the handsome young fellow interposing between himself and the girl. . From day to day it could plainly be seen how the rides in the pure mountain air ana the delight of the girl's coinpnnlonslii!) were bringing back strength and vigor to the officer's tropic-weakened body. Soon a healthy red appeared under the tan of his cIxH'nS. The lines of severity and re-pros'Hl grief began to smooth away. On the morning of the seventh day, when lie rode over to join Marie for a" ride out to the butte on Wolf river, ten years seemed to have dropped from him. Even when he lifted his hat to the fc'irl stud exposed the silvered hail at his temples, he looked nearer twenty-tive than thirty. He had shaved off his bristly mustache! "Positively, captain," she bantered "you startle me. You are growing so young! First thing I know, I shall be feeling myself a grandmother In contrast." "Impossible," he gallnntly replied. "You are the Spirit of Youth. Being with you Is what makes me seem so much younger than I am. Yet I shall never see thirty-two -again." "You're barely of age this morning !" she said, smiling at his shapely cleanshaven llct ... To be continued AT THE PLAYHOUSE. Theatrical Attractions In Nsw Yorw Boston, and Montreal.

Surrender of a German force of 3,000 men in , East Africa was due to the chance dropping of a number of bombs by a British airman, according to a report from Capetown, which says: "An officer of the Flying Corps was out on reconnaissance in the region of the Rovuma River, but found nothing to bomb. Being forced to discharge his caffeo of bombs to lighten his machine for the homeward trip, he chose a quiet spot and dropped them all, causing, of course, considerable noise. The German General, Tafel, was at the time marching to join his chief,; Von Lettow, but news of the explosions was reported to him, and he, thinging a large force of the enemy must be somewhere in the district, Jiverted his line qf march and before long bumped into a British force. "Ultimately his whole force, 3,000 strong, surrendered." DENMARK'S STOCK OF SWINE DROPS Copenhagen, May 17. Denmark's stock of. swine, which amounted to about 2,500,000 head at the. outbreak of the war, has now dropped to 400,-000, according to latest estimates. Further serious inroads on this stock are being compelled by the impossibility of mporting fodder, principally corn. In 1913 Denmark's total exports of pork were nearly 250,000 tons, of which Just '.inder one-half went to England.
