Washington.—The United States
will send within another fortnight a
reply to the note recently received
from the Austro-Hungarian govern
ment, which contended that extensive
shipments of war supplies from this
country to the allies were “not in con-
sonance with the definition of neu-
Unofficially word came that Turkey
would follow Germany and Austria
in making representations on this sub-
ject and should a note from the Otto-
man government arrive, officials
would delay the sending of their an-
swer so as to simultaneously inform
the German allies of the unalterable
view of the United States on arms
While Germany has admitted in dip-
lomatic correspondence with the Unit-
ed States the legal right of individuals
in a neutral country to sell munitions
to belligerents, some emphasis was
placed on the super normal growth of
American industries for the manufac-
ture of arms and explosives. In the
Austrian notes, extracts of which have
appeared in dispatches from Amster-
dam this idea is developed almost en-
tirely to the exclusion of the legal
Contention In Austrian Note.
It points out that the American gov-
ernment would be “entitled to pro-
hibit the export of war material’’ if
the trade in contraband “takes the
form or dimensions whereby the neu-
trality of the country will be endan-
It also was pointed out, regarding
possible objections, that American in-
dustry was willing to supply the cen-
tral powers with goods but could not,
owing to the war situation; that the
United States government was in a
position to redress this state of af-
fairs by advising the entente allies
that the supply of foodstuffs and war
material would be suspended “if le-
gitimate trade in these articles be-
tween Americans and neutral coun-
tries were not permitted."
The Nebraskan Case.
Although state department officials
were pleased by receipt of a memoran-
dum from Ambassador Gerard formal-
ly transmitting Germany’s admission
of liability and expression of regret
for the attack by a Cermn submarine
on the American steamer Nebraskan,
they practically decided that the legal
points raised by the incident would
require the dispatch of a note on the
subject farther to conserve American
rights in the war zone.
Legal officers pointed out that In
many respects the case resembled
that of the William P. Frye, an
[American ship sunk by the Prinz FJitel
Friedrich. In both cases the German
government has expressed regret at
the occurrence and offered to compen-
sate American citizens for losses sus-
tained but the action of the German
commanders has been declared justi-
fied under the circumstances. To ad-
mit this officials here say would estab-
lish a dangerous precedent.
Officials take the view that the case
of the Nebraskan proves conclusively

The Last Straw.
Mary Jane’s master ts a slightly
eccentric bachelor. He has one most
irritating habit. Instead of telling her
what he wants done by word of mouth
he leaves on his desk, or on the kitch-
en table, or anywhere else where she
is likely to see it, a note curtly direct-
ing her to "Dust the dining room” or
“Turn out my cupboard," and so on.
The other day he bought some note-
paper, with the usual die-sunk ad-
dress imprinted upon it, from the sta-
tioner, and ordered it to be sent home.
Mary Jane took it in, and the first
thing that caught her eye was a note
attached to the package. She read it
"Well," she said, "lie’s asked me to
do a few things in his blessed notes,
but this is the limit. I won't stand It

MAN’S SHORT TERM OF LIFE
In Comparison With Other Animals
He Does Not Nearly Live Out
His Allotted Time.
A rule which holds fairly true among
the higher animals is that an animal
lives five times as long as it requires
for his muscular system to reach its
lull strength. The dog is fully devel-
oped at between two and three years
of age, and lives fifteen years; the
horse reaches his prime not later than
five, and if he escapes overwork and
ill usage, lives to be twenty-five and
even thirty. In fact, the rule seems to
be an understatement of animal ex-
pectation of life, rather than an over-
The one conspicuous exception is
man, who seldom reaches his full mus-
cular strength before he is twenty-five
and counts himself living on borrowed
time if he passes the age of seventy,
if man were as well circumstanced in
this matter as the horse, dog or cat,
his average term of life would vary
from one hundred and ten to one hun-
dred and twenty-five years.
