The Saloniki front is chiefly notable
in the day's dispatches as the scene
of almost continued aeroplane skir-
mishes, one of which continued for
two hours. The Hermans have thus

The rumor that the consule of the

The present situation in Albania
was thus summed up by Lord Robert
Cecil, under secretary for foreign Af-
fairs in itbe house of commons: '
"I regret to say that it is impossible
to speak of Albania as an entity at
present. In the central area over
which Essad Pasha's authority ex-
tends, the relations between the Ser-
bian soldiers and the population have
been friendly and Essad Pasha has
rendered them valuable assistance.
The northern tribes, among whom the
enemy has conducted a considerable
propaganda are hostile to the Ser-
bians and Montenegrins."
Several lengthy dispatches have
been received here giving details of
(he recent operations in eastern Ga-
licia, which were so meagerly de-
scribed in the official reports. Accord-
ing to these dispatches the Russians,
after artillery preparation which
showed there was no longer any short-
age in their big gun ammunition,
started an offensive which caused the
Austro-Germans to rush every avail-
able division to Galicia.

It cannot be disguised that the in-

an end of Italy's dream of dominating
the Albanian section of the Adriatic
The Italian newspapers in expressing
the opinion that an Austrian succeaa
against Montenegro would give the in-
vader an incalculable political, mari-
time, commercial and strategic advan-

posed between Juarez and fhibuahua

Broadway, the driver sleepily tried to

His number was jotted down in the
book of that recording angel and a
summons was handed up. A few
yards beyond, and the horse, turning
to avoid a hot-chestnut peddler, went
down in a heap. The pavement was
slippery, and he must needs be un-
harnessed in the shafts before he
could rise. Another block, and some-
body was digging a hole in the street

somebody else. The off wheels cf the
wagon rolled too near, and tbe vehi-

Cotton is usually differentiated in
ordinary classification by the length ol
its staple. "Ordinary cotton" in the
United States is of several kinds, chief
among them the upland cotton, with
a staple of from seven-eighths to one
inch in length, and Gulf or Texas cot-
ton, on which the staple is not usually
quite so long. The longest-stapled cot-
tons among the "ordinary cottons'
here are the bottom land or bender
cotton, with a staple of from one and
one-eigbth to one and one-fourth inch,
and the special fancy staple cotton,
one and three-eighths to one and five-
eighths inch In length. The sea island
cotton, which is grown on the aea
islands off the coast of South Carolina,
has a staple of from one and a half to
two and a half inches, tbe average
length being one and three fourths.
The Egyptian cotton is being grown In
southern California, New Mexico and
Arizona; its staple is not so long aa
the sea island cotton, but comparer
rather with tbe upland cotton here.
