The village was their official host but in reality they were the guests of the women and the children. , Outburst of Emotion. Aged women and girls crowded about Secretary Baker and the two generals, accompanying him to express their thanks and pay homage to their deliverers. It was not merely courioslty; it was an emotional outburst following almost three years of conquerors' suppression. Tho word was passed about that tbe small civilian was the American secretary of war whose armies had accomplished their relief and from half destroyed homes and from points for removed from the center of tho village inhabitants hurried to get a glimpse of the visitors. 1 Chorus of Thankfulness. A military band was brought up from the rear; the Marseillaise was played and tho "Civilians' restraint in the presence of tho visitors broke down completely. Women crowded forward ostensibly to shake the secretary's hand,.but Instead they kissed his hands and wept and then they jolned in a chorus of thankfulness. There were no speeches but many times Secretary Baker responded briefly to expressions of gratitude oftentimes half, hysterically uttered by tho wohieh and children. c KHAKI BILLS Lieut. Wm. ta.

TEARING DOWN PflRCH ON OLD HAKVEY HOUSE Was-Badly in Need ef Repairs, and Also in the Way of Traffic on the New Tracks. The porch on tho old Santa Fe Harvey bouse at the corner of Main street and Third Is being torn down today. Just what improvement will be added to take the place has not been decided upon as yet. Since the tracks have been moved further north, It was In the way of cars pass Ing on that track. U M. Fleming, roadmaster for tho Santa Fc here, is having charge ot the work and when asked this morning just what/the idea was in reiuov ing the old porch he said: "Well, we decided to toko it down before it fell down for It was getting so old .«nd badly in need of repairs. Then, too, it was in the way of switching cars on the north track. The old place will look sort of queer without the adornment, but it has to come down.' This old building s one of the land marks of the Santa Fe and has been bult for many years. H was used by the Harvey system until a few years ago when tie BiBouto was built.

Washington, Sept. 14.—With the St Mihiel salient wiper out by General Pershing's army, interest of officials hero was divided today between the next probable move by the American forces and the amount of booty that had fallen to them in tho short time required for the accomplishment of the first task assigned them as an independent operating army. Latest reports, from the front did not make it clear whether tho Americans and the supporting French forces had halted on a new line running iu the shape of a bow from Fresnes to the Moselle rivcr,at Pagny where tho German border was In sight, or still were repulsing the enemy. From, the knowledge of the nature of the terrain the most of the observor« were inclined to the belief -that any German defense position must have been closer to the border, as it was only their natural defense ground andibcattqn. • Pershing in' Cemmand .'fHy j. The importance, attached 16" this operation was emphasized not /alone by the fact that (leneral Pershing himself commanded tho Americans, but that General Petaln, the French commander-in-chief, also was .on the ground. > Tho speed with which the Americans from the south and. those advancing from the west made a juncture some twelve miles northeast of St. Alihlel was surprising In view of the fact that no less than seven German divisions opposed them. That many divisions were identified by the prisoners taken, which General Pershing reported last night numbered 13,300. ITALIAN OFFICERS ESCAPE. From Austrian Camp and Tell of Privations. Rome, Sept. 14.—Three Italian offl - cers who succeeded in escaping from Austrian concentration camps gave interviews on the conditions in tbe interior of Austria when they arrived in Italy. They said the middle class and thoso who do not own real estate suffered extreme privation, although the farmers and workmen live far better. The prisons and concentration camps are qharnelB, owing lo the lack of food, 'of clothes and of medicines. All of the officers agreed In saying that the Austrians detest the Germans. Whenever Germans enter a cafe, or other public resort, the Austrians who happen to be within leave tho placo forthwith. They aro all tired "of the war and the news from the front finds the public altogether indifferent.V The food supply outlook for next winter, owing to the shortage of the harvest, is discouraging. During their long stay and their journey'through Austria tbe only thing the people discussed with any interest was how to get food. They added that many officers iu the Austrian army refuse to salute tbe Germans. Discover Minerals Through Deep Drilling. Weather Report Kansas!
