A. workers attached to the Moroccan division of the French army distinguished themselves by their heroism during the rccunt of- feiiKlvo on the Marno salient. They took an active part In relieving tho woulded of the division, were under constant shell, rifle and machine gun fire and many had miraculous escapes. They carried water, cigarettes and food to' tho fighting men and acted as Interpreters, many of Uio men of the division being of different nationalities. Among thoso mentioned for displaying extraordinary heroism under ,flre wore It. II. Ilacon, New York City; Frank Hamilton, Burtalo; S. It. Bush, Iowa Ulty; Kay Coyle, Berkeley, Col., and Wlllinm Murray, Brooklyn, N. T. Strange. Utile Jock was 111, and the medi- CRI man had been sent for. His mother rushed up to the doctor as soon OB he entered the house and started sobbing hysterically. "Calm yourself, my good woman," he said, "and tell me what Is the matter with the little chap. "Oh, doc\ur," she walled, "he managed to gel hold of a dictionary, somehow, and cheWod three pages out of it." "Have you given him an emetic?" asked the medical man. "Yes—oh, yes!" was the mournful reply. "But I can't get a word out of him." . Next? "Thump-rattle-bang!" went the piano. "What are you trying to play, Jane?" called out her father from the next .room. "It's an exercise from my new Instruction book, 'First Steps in Music.'" she answered. ' "Well, 1 knew you were playing with your feet," he said, grimly, "but don't step so heavily on the keys— It disturbs my thoughts." 8. P.

"I'll play no more Germans," announced George Norrls, who was cast lo appear as a German spy In "Unexpected Places," in which Bert Lytell is starred. Not only did the husky young star grub the supposed spy by thu legs and give him a good drubbing In the rough-and-tumble fight which-ensued, but Norrls complained that Bert called llim a "damnable, llun"- which is more than any American can stand, even lor art's "v^ka Ruben*.

IT'S A REAL DISASTER Breaking of Dorcouri-Queanl Switch Line Hard on Huns. THE IMPRESSION IN LONDON Is Tljat the Germans Are in Peril All Along tile Big .linden- burg Line. London, Sept. 3.—The sensa- tlonal breaking of the famous Drocourt-Queant switch tine after a series of Important Allied advances with great captures of men and material has made an Immense impression here. WhIK too great confidence that the success can be maintained Is depreciated, the blow Is regarded as one of the worst disasters In. flicted upon the Germans during the whole war and one which ^must cause the high command the deepest anxiety. The belief is general that the switch line Is the main system of Gorman defense and that there is nothing equally strong behind it. : A Big Back-Up. "Its loss would Involve the evacuation of tho French coal field, perhaps even of the Flanders coast," says the Mail, "iind would imperil tho German hold on Doual, Valenciennes and Cambria, which are essential to Hindenburg for maneuvering nis armies. Tho switch line Is thus, the pivot of the whole German front and Its breach means that we. have forced tho enemy to a struggle of man against man, which Jie had used all of his ingenuity to avert," Tho Telegraph also noting.the danger to the important German centers of communication, says: "If the Germans cannot stand before Douai, Cambral and St. Quentiu, they can stand nowhere this side of the German frontier."

Washington, Sept. 3.—August was the most disastrous month to the cotton crop ttmt.bas over boon recorded, a loss in prospective production amounting to ,2,482,000 bales resulting Irom the severe drouth. Tho department of agriculture today forecast tho crop at 11,137,000, equivalent T>00 pound bales, basing its estimate on a canvasB mado August 26.

In a statement Issued with the crop report, the department of agriculture says: "The past month was the most disastrous In Its effect upon the cotton crop that has been recorded, the decline being 17,!i pointa, equivalent to a depreciation of 24 per cent in one month. The forecast -.of yield per acre, 145 pounds Is smaller than any yield over reported. "A large acreage, however, permits a forecast of total production of 11,137,000 bnlcB, which is' but slightly smaller than tho last three crops. The depreciation was more or less general throughout the cotton belt, bukpreatcr in the west, (Texas and Oklahoma, especially) than in tho east The principal cause of the decline Is extreme drouth, but contributory causes aro boll wSevil, red spider and rust.''

WILSON Senator Sherman, of llllnoii, Made Speech In the Senate. TOLD OF His ADMINISTRATION And How Honse.vBurleson and McAdoo Actually Kuti the Government. Washington, Sept. 3.—In a lehgthy prepared address on what he called "unofficial and personal government" Senator Sherman, of Illinois, Itepubli­ can, made a scathing attack in the Senate today on lTesldcnt Wilson and his administration, and particularly Colonel M. House, the president's per sonal friend and adviser. With Ironical references lo the president's recent. statement that politics Is adjourned, the senator asserted that, having elected lhe»-prea- ldcnt "almost _gingle handed," Colonel House and n' coterie of Texas politicians "are in tho saddle and they aro doing politics in tho some old way.'. Under pretense of war powers, he said, tho administration is placing control of the country in the hands of a few politicians and labor leaders to be used relentlessly for the election of party candidates now and a president in 1920. Political Autocracy. "1 denounce," be added, "a political autoonvcy covertly engaged in when the nation is in the stress of war in undermining institutional civil liberty." Colonel House was characterised by Senator Sherman as "this alleged, un- elected, unofficial assistant psesldenL" The senator gave an analysis of a novel said Jo have been written by Colonel House, which he described ns an autobiography telling a tale of politics, civil war, love end reform, with a moat tix, showing how to get rid of the constitution. . War Far Away. Secretary Baker was referred to as "one who thinks \>l the war as throe thousand miles away, talks glibly of quantity production of combat airplanes, delays three months the draft law amendment of 1918, opposes universal military training and says -Washington's soldiers at Valloy Forge iwere drunkards and chicken thieves, only to be declared by executive proclamation to be tbo most capablo official that distinguished functionary ever knew." ' Regarding Secretary of Commerce Ited field, Senator Sherman, said he bad made "some sparkling* contributions to trade," including ''"the "shocking information that high cost cTTlv- ing, was caused by too niany delivery wagons; an epic on fish and clams along with a sotuiet or two on sheep killing dogs." ; Former Secretary f Bryan, the Senator declared,- resigned when he hail"played second fiddle long enough and his power for harm had waned.-" Pontics of It. "Politics began there and Jt's neveri adjourned since in domestic affairs," said Mr. Sherman. "Was there ever a more sordid, revelation of selfish, time-serving politics with the first executive officer next only to the President shuffled about as plunder to suit partisan ends?". "In critislng Col. House, Senator Sherman said as personal representative, in favor of the president whilo abroad he "cxeroteeil unofficial and usurped aiowers of government^" and "his gratuitous advice to Bottle the Uiboat dispute provoked the dirision of Germany and the impatience of the Allies." Declaring the administration seeks even to dictate Republican candidates in Republican states, tho Senator said "Eord is to be made senator from Michigan by executive order." Government Control, Denouncing what ho described as socialistic plans of "a coterie of politicians gilded and plated by a group of theorizing, Intolerant Intellectuals," Senator Sherman continued: "Government control is a mere name. As now exercised by this administration it is the Threshold of permanent political ownership and operation. "On all questions related' to labor Gompers is practically president. Burleson controls the physical agencies for communication of thought and McAdoo tho railways' and country's finances. Strip off the mask of alleged ownership and' see behind 11 the revealed political ownership and control of Gonipors, Burleson and McAdoo for partisian purposes, to bo used relentlessly to elect partisians now and in 1920 a president. Politics adjourned. Worse, more rampant, rancorous, partisan politics never abused the patriotism and general confidence of a great nation. Against the clandestine partisan policies of this administration, hidden un. dor thick clothes of war, I rftiae my voice seasonably in remonstrance."
