Hint there is no available storage rapacity, for it is their chief business to see that no cars are allowed to remain tieil up with main shipments. This new system acts In the nature of an embargo although it has nothing to tlo with thi- shipments of grains into Hutchinson. It differs somewhat from an embargo in that it leaves a small loophole for the big shippers. However It seeriis to be the Intention of the government and of the Kood Administration to sve that practically all of the grain Is ground in the region near where it is grown and thus save an extra amount of moving. The "permit system'' is now In full swing on the Hoik Island, for all grain j-hipp; rs to such points as I.titluth, Minneapolis. St. Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, I'toriu. Kansas City, St. Joe, Oin.iliii. and Council lllurfs. It was found necessary to resort to this method because ot the overtaxing of the .-tot-age faiililles al these market points. la order to regulate the future shipments of grain to these markets beyond that which can be cared for by Ihe elevators and storing houses, the permit, system, such as is'in use for all shipment* to sea coast towns, was adopted. They have been adopted in cooperation with the Food Administration. Heretofore at this time of the year the sliljiments s have been ex- tternely heavy to these grain markets and to such an exUm that all storage places were taxed beyond their, ability. Consequently many cars were tied up and it is the plan of the gov- < rmnent that this year when every r.-ir is needed, that this tie-up shall no! result again. Issue Permits. Central drain Control committees have ber-n appointed at different grain markets in the forementloned cities ami applications for permits will have to be made to them. They in turn •will scrutinize the case and if satisfied that conditions warrant, the further movement oX grains, will approve of issuing a permit. No sbi+jiuents of grains will he accepted at any point on the railroad for any of these places without such a permit from the Grain Control Committee. All shippers have been notified that such requests have to be made through these sources and can not be secured otherwise. No permit will he Issued if Ihe Committee finds A NEW FEATURE To Have Concerts Every Wednesday Afternoon Between Three and Tour. Yiclroln concerts will be rivtn evety 'Wediioaday afternoon betwi en three and four o'clock on the mezzanine floor at Korabaugh-Wlley's.

Paris, Sept. 24.—How the Austrian offensive along the Plate river was stopped was described today by the Duke of Aosta, commauder of the Third hui an army, which was located souUi of the Montello plateau during the fighting, in an interview vi-ith the foreign editor of too Matin. He said: "We 1 a,l to ileal with an enemy who ha J ircpared everything minutely but we were forewarned. 1 did not have a moment's uneaoiness. "I let him advance across the Piave along certain fronts as far as Menus- lerlo and then when be was just where I wanted him my batcriea opened a concentric fire. .What butchery! The Austrians will long K-iiiember it. Such Massacres. "The next day I viewed the battlefield. Clod knows 1 saw massncrt-s during the throe years I fought on the terrible Carso Plain but my eyes never before mused on such a spectacle." Discussing the war situation as a whole, the Duke sV.d: "What :i-.e Allied troops are doing against Uie German artny fills nie with admiration and wonder. 1 freely admit that 1 i.ever b-.dleved this vast offertivo would be possible before next spring. That it. could be launched this year in the middle of the German attack and lead to such victories is a marvel and also a proof that for Marshal Fbch the problem of reserves has ceased to be a care." "Reserves! The whole question lies there. If one is certain of being able to reinforce and relieve the troops engaged while the action Is proceeding one can boldly embark on no matter what operation. Must Whip the Enemy. "But," continued the Duke, "now that we have the upperluuid there must be no stopping. We must -beat them completely. We owe it to ourselves.
