C, Sept. 4. —A striking annlogy between Nature's and man's methods of wnrfnro Is pictured by John Oliver LaGarce In a communication lo tho National Geographic Society. (Mr. UiGorce describes our Atlantic seaboard as one of nature's greatest battlegrounds between the forces of the sea and the fortified areas of tho land. A part of the communication is issued by Uiu society as a bulletin of its war geography series, as follows: "The operations of the sea assassins of Prussia on pur eastern coast, In a futile utfort to stay the mighty blow America Is beginning to strlke-figainst despotism, brings into bold relief that ever-changing stretch ot coastline we so proudly call our Atlantic seaboard. . Its a Long Way. "As tlie crow flies, it is some sixteen hundred miles from the out-harbor waters of Kastpurt, Maine, to the key-guarded shallows of Cards Sound, Florida; but as the shore stretches southward, miles lengthen into leagues, rocky citadels give way to shifting sands, and both yield place to coral roufB. "Ho who would follow tho foreshore from northern Canipohollo Island to southern tjargo Key has a ourney thatj while taxing his legs would certainly stir his soul, for in doing so he would traverse the length of a battle-front in the most ancient, the most far-flung, the most unremitting, uncorapromls ing war ever staged between puissant forces of nature—tho war between land and water, with tho wind as a shifting ally. "This warfare, harsh in its local results, Is yet one that by Its analogies lias comfort for suffering humanity in the present hours of stress and crisis, for tlie final results, however serious the monetary • aspects, the beneficial to mankind. A Bird's-Eye View. ' - "Before visiting the various centers of the seaboard battlefront to study the more intimate details of, tin; war between the. sea and the soil, let us erfdifevvoJ' to get" a-• Wrd's-cye view of the great conflict that started long before man appeared upon the face of the earth, and which can only end long after the planet is no longer fit for his habitation. "livery coast line on the globe, be it that of a great continent or a tiny island, is a theater of natures struggle, in which tho- warring forces are marshaled; every rainsorm is d vast squadron of airplanes 'of the sea, a veritable Neptune's Escadrille, sweeping tho shook troops across the No'Man's' l^and of cliff; beach and ' reef, onward to the very heart of the land,forces' strongholds, the mountains', where they wheel about • and launch a rear attack with swollen •torrent, hail and ice.' . "Each drop of water js indeed a soldier of the sea, doing its small part, as il descends with force, in conquering the hillside,' and its drum fire is to be reckoned with, because each Inch of rain brings down one rundrud and thirteen tons of water upon every acre of terrain upon which it falls. The Air Fleets of the Sea. "As tho tiny soldiers concentrate first in rivulet regiments, then into mountain-torrent divisions, and finally into big-river armies, they madly charge tlie rocks and grind them to dust by attrition and carry tlie captive sands tivvf onward to the sea. "Tho vast forces of the sea which are' sunt out lu air fleets beggar belief. The rainfall of the . United States perhaps averages thirty inches a year. On that basis every acre of ground is attacked by three, thousand tons of water. And the water armies, marching back to the sea as rivers, take along a hostage of well- nigh unbelievable proportions) since It lias been estimated that they carry some twenty-flvo billion tons of captive material with them. "Tho prisoners of the Mississippi might be used for an example be- euuse their aggregate volume is greater every year than tho total amount of material removed from tho Panama Canal from tho hour de l-essops turned tho first sod to the glorious day'Goethals pronounced it a finished undertaking, or approximately 505,000,0060 tons! , • "it often happens, however, that the Seemingly vanquished turn on their captors just ,as they come down to tho dead line of No Man's J^aud and suececd In saving' themselves from the prison camps of the sea bottom. "In such eases lhe,y form themselves into river deltas, like those of Uie Mississippi/- the Po, the Euphrates, and tho Ganges, although our own bea- board captive* tire not so fortunate, since deltas are couspicuously absent from tho river mouths of tho North American Atlantic and Pacific eqaijta. "In the attacks. o{ the sea upon the land via the air, It is tho constant en- deuvor of the water forces to bring the whole dry land area under:l)s liquid fist." If the sea ever succeeded In its prognim of world dominion, which Includes dragging every mountain down and filling up every ocean trench with material graded from the land in a leveling process, there would ho a universal ocean nearly t\vo miles deep over the : {aco of tie. globe.

IMllas, Texas.—A strange procession of canvas-covared wagons, drawn by mules, for more than a mouth has been creeping out of west Texas with farmers and ranchers who have despaired of trying to make a livelihood on the land that lias been parched under a blajsing sun and hns seen virtually no rain for thirty-six months. Tho emigrants from this particular section have turned I heir faces toward the cotton fields ot eastern Texas and Oklahoma, where work for all can easily be obtained. In some parts of the west Texas district, duBk finds as many as a dozen of these emigrant camps in a single mile. Froni tho Panhundle-nnd the northern section oflthe state come reportB that similar caravans, reminiscent of half a century ago, mar the ex'odus ot farmers from those districts who are moving toward Colorado and farther west. War to Blame Too. The war has played its part with the departing homesteader, but lack of rain has been tho teal factor. Most of the settlers have been on land rented from the state. Some have tjpent years of labor building up their herds and others have been working the land Into a profitable state of cultivation. Hut the drought came and the cattlo died In numbers and those that did not die were too weak to bear young. Livestock men said the calf, crop in west Texas this year was a failure. Some settlers had accumulated enough money to travel while others borrowed money witli which to make their departure. In many cases the war added to the tragedy by taking away young men whose strength might .have made it possible for farmers to hold on until rain came. The country which the settlers are leaving Is that. west and north of Fort. Worth and Dallas, ranging as far west as the slateboundary and south of the Panhandle counties. In the Panhandle there' 1 were rains in the spring and ocoasional showers later that kept grass wllh which to feed tho cattle. ITS ALL OFF. No Navigation of the Missouri River During the War. Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 5—As a result, of the purchase of the-equipment of the Kansas City Missouri River Navigation company and its transfer soon to navigation of the Mississippi river by (he railroad administration, the indication is that there will be no navigation on tho Missouri river during the war, according to A. W. Mackie, former manager of the local boating company, and now manager of tho Mississippi section of the rait road administration. Mr. (Maekje said no future policy of the government concerning navigation of the Missouri river bad been announced, but that the improvement work on the river would continue and the money derived from the sale of Iho equipment here would probaMy foe used for the purchase of new boats and barges after tho war, if navigation was not resumed before then. Provisions have been made only for tho naviga'ju of the Mississippi river from St. Louis to Rew'Orleans," ho said. "There is a possibility the administration may obtain enough equipment to extend its lines up the Missouri river, but the prospect does not appear bright." "The administration took oyer tho boat line and transferred the equipment' to thn Mississippi river as a matter of w-.r efficiency." Mr. Mackie continued. "On account of the low water in the Missouri the barges can haul only one-third their capacity. On the Mississippi they can carry a full load. Also the tow boats can push bigger loads on the Mississippi." The operation of tho government boat lino will begin thn latter part of this month. The equipment of the local company will he turned over to ttio administration as fSst as the boats arrive ut their destination and are unloaded.

ADOPT NEW MEASURE Decide to Set Aside a Day for France National Holiday and One for Argentina* Uuehos Aires.—(Correspondence of The Associated Press).—-Argentina's policy toward the belligerents in the world war was Involved in tlie decision of the Chamber ot Deputies on July 3 to make July 14, France national holiday also and again a day for national celebration In Argentina. Friends of the Entente nations consider the nctlon of the Chamber ot Deputies In adopting this measure to Indicate that the majority of the members of tho Chamber are pro-IOntentc. President Irlgoycn is placed In a difficult position by the passage of this measure. During the debate in tho Chamber of Deputies there was a sharp alignment, lo pro-Entente sentiment lu, support of the proposal to make Uastlle Day a National holiday. In Argentina. No one but the Germans and their sympathizers opposed the measure. These latter contended that the .Germans would be offended If July 14 w;as made an Argentine Holiday and that they would regard It as a breach of neutrality. It was generally admitted in the lobbies ot the Chamber of Deputies that the July 14 'holiday proposal was designed by the enemies of the President to force his hand. He must either veto or sign the bill.. If lie signs \hc bill rriends ot the Allies, will claim it as a friendly action toward the Entente nations.' If he refuses-to sign it his enemies declare that his veto will, be considered as a' definite stand in favor of Germany. There was a hot contest over the measure. It caused a split in the Radical party which has supported the President and theru are now two distinct groups in that party. It is believed here that each group will have Its own candidate for presidency when the next elections are held. The first group contains the clericals nnd the conservative Radicals, Including those two who are to Germany, Spain and Mexico. The other group, called the Extremists, is composed ot Radicals whose sympathies are with the Entente cause in the war. Tho clerical or conservative wing favors strict neutrality by Argentina in the war and is antagonistic toward the British and American trade invasion of South America; while the other wing Is friendly towasd both British and Americans. The lnlter demand a frank expression ot sympathy toward the Entente allies.

Alon^ with other serious problems of the day comes that of securing messenger boyH. It has been difficult for some time to obtain boys ot sixteen or over to do litis work; and the openlhR of school next week will l?avo the local Western Union office without-a single messenger boy to lake and deliver telegrams. It seems that hero again the women will have to come to tho rescue. While the messenger work has' always been considered out ot woman's sphere, sho couM do it, nnd may, if the situation becomes more acute. The Western Union management is urging the public to accept their telegrams over the telephone, and to telephone to the office those which they wish lo send out. This would eliminate the problem of the .messenger, aud Is somewhat similar lo what the merchants are asking In their urging of the cash-and-carry plan. Preston r. Hughes, manager of the Western Union Telegraph Company, assures the public thai ho Is doing all Dint he can to make it possible for people to receive their telegrams at tholr homes or places of business, but that' this cannot bo assured unless the government comes to tho rescue and provides some ways aud menus.

She would thus give hubby a.nice surprise, and uiio save the expense of having a professional wall paper hanger.
