neoDle of Texas have broken air rec

The U. S. Department of Agriculture's

of Mississippi had provided 1,056 dip- Major Waldron who will succeed Cap

This is an increase of 35 vats and

legislature of Mississippi recently)
passed a law requiring that ticK eraa

BELGIAN KING AGES
UNDER THE STRAIN
Flushing. Netherlands, Sept. 22
King Albert of Belgium has aged un
der the heavy cares and sorrows of
the present time, and his hair is be
ginning to turn gray, according to the
latest news from the Belgian front.
His Majesty never leaves the small
strip of territory over which the Bel
gian flag still flics, refraining from
visits to places in France or to Ste.
Adresse, where his government has
its seat. If the King of England or'
President Poincare want to meet the
Belgian sovereign "they have to go to,
this corner "by the Yser.
The soldiers deeply appreciate the
fact that their sovereign and commander-in-chief
shares with them the
monotony of this marshy bit of coun-,
try, waiting, like them, for the day
when Belgium shall be free once
more. His Majesty is frequently seen
by his men in Jiie treuches, in bar
racks, on the sands and in the dunes.
It is said, indeed, that no one knows
better than he the 25 or 3J miles of
trenches where the Belgian troops
keep vigilant guard day and night.
He is particularly fond of visiting the
advancing posts, and his troops al
ways feel some amount of anxiety
when they descry the king's tall fig
ure traversing the foot bridges only
some hundreds of meters distant
from the enemy.
Queen Elizabeth, on the other hand,
has with her own hands bound up
many badiy-wounded men in the
Ocean Hospital. Here she is in daily
attendance, speaking an encouraging
word here and there to the patients
and distributing tobacco and cigar
ettes. Instances are related in which
she has stood by the dying bed of '
simple aoloiers. Her Majesty is held
in great veneration by the entire
