The bravest battle that ever was fought, Shall I tell j on where and when? On the maps of the world yon will find it not; . T> was fought by the mothers of men. Nay, not with a cannon or battle shot, With sword or nobler pen; Kay, not with the eloquent words or thought, From the montbs'of wonderful men. But deep Sin' a. walled-up woman's heart— Of woman that would not yield, But bravely, silently bore" her part— Lo, there was the battlefield. No marshaling troops, no bivouac song, No banner to gleam and wave; Bun, oh I these battles, they last so long, From babyhood to the grave, Yet faithful still as a bridge of stars, She fights, in her walled-up town— Fights on and on in the endless wars, Then silent, unseen—goes "down. O, ye with banners and battle shot, And soldiers to shout and praise, I tell you tbe kingliest viotories fought, Are fought in these silent ways. O, spotless woman in a world of shame! • With a splendid and silent scorn, Go back to God as white as you came, The kingliest warrior born I Joaquin Miller. FARWELL. MT.

OCEAN LINER SINKS: 1.334 LOST ONLY 866 PERSONS OF 2,200 ON BOARD ESCAPE FROM THE WORLD'S GREAT- . EST OF MARINE DISASTERS. Mightiest of Ocean Liners Strikes an Iceberg off Grand Banks at 10:25 Sunday Night and Founders at 2:20 Monday Morning. Although 868 souls are reported to be on the Carpathia It Ib apparent that all of them are not passengers, for it was necessary for members of the Titanic's crew to man the lifeboats which set out from the sinking liner. How many of the crew were assigned to each boat is a matter of conjecture. While the*' names of the survivors are largely" of saloon passengers, the *rule "women first" should apply! equally to the second cabin and steerage, and may have cost the lives of many prominent men above decks. It is natural that the names of the more obscure survivors would be slower in reaching land. False news and false hopes and an international belief that the palatial Titanic was unsinkable, followed the slowly unfolding accounts of her loss without precedent. Eager crowds in a dozen cities in the United States besieged bulletin boards when it be- came known that the giant liner had really sunk with terrific loss of life, and in New York city hysterical men and women crowded into the White Star line offices seeking news of relatives. On Her Maiden Trip. In the melancholy roll of marine tragedies that which overtook the Titanic is the first on record wherein a conspicuous vessel has met disaster ton her maiden voyage. The nearest approach to such an unfortunate fate was the cruise of the Naronic, which, singularly enough, belonged to the same line. She went to the port of missing ships on her second voyage. Carrying about 300, al] told, she steamed out of thv port on- her return trip, nearly 20 years ago, and since then there has never been a word as to how she met her fate HARRISON; city, the last This week W.

The greatest marine disaster in the history of the world occurred Sunday night when the Titanic of the White Star Line, the biggest and finest of steamships, shattered herself against an'iceberg,and sank with 1,334 of her passengers and crew in less than four" hours. Ont of 2,200 people she carried only 866 were known to be saved. Most of these were women and children. They were picked up from small boats by the Cunarder Carpathia which found, when she ended her desperate race against time, a sea strewn with the wreckage of the lost ship and the bodies of drowned men and women. Among the 1,310 passengers of the giant liner were: Col. John J. Astor and his wife, Isidor Straus, Major Archibald W. Butt, George B. Widener and Mrs. Widener of Philadelphia, Mr. and Mrs. Henry S. Harper, Wm. T. Stead, the London journalist, and many more whose names are known on both sides of the Atlantic. The news that few besides women and children were saved has caused the greatest apprehension as to the fate of these. When the Titanic plunged headlong against a wall of ice at 10:25 Sunday night, her fate established that no modern steamship is unsinkable, and that all of a large passenger list cannot be saved in a liner's small boats. The White Star line believed that the Titanic was practically invulnerable and insisted, until there was no doubting the full extent of the catasrophe, that she could not sink. The great ship was the last word in modern scientific construction, but she found the ocean floor almost as quickly as a wooden ship. On her maiden trip, the Titanic, built and equipp- 1 at a cost of $10,000,- 000, a floating palace, found her grave. Swinging from the westerly steamship lane at the south of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland to* take the direct run to this port, she hurled her giant bulk against an iceberg that rose from an immense field drifting unseasonably from the Arctic. Running a't high speed into that grim and silent enemy of seafarers, the shock crushed her bow. From a happy, comfortable vessel she was converted in-a few minutes into a ship of misery and dreadful suffering. Business' Changes. As will be noticed by ads. elsewhere in this paper, the mill recently operated by the Milling, Light and Power Oo. will be run in the future by the Callam Milling Co. Mr. Ting- ley will be retained as head miller, a supply of good flour and feed will be kept on hand and a square deal promised to everyone. The Consolidated Light and Power Co. under the management of F. B. Doherty, wbich company has 1 ad its oflioes in the mill, has now removed to the Dunwoodie building where they will keep electrical supplies and are ready to do your electric wiring. Great Mississippi Power Danu So quietly that even the newspapers nardly know abont it, even after it is half finished, there ia being built in the Mississippi, in the most violent stretch of tbe great river, at> the foot of its impassable rapids, the greatest power dam in the world, creating the largest water-power plant in tbe world, to energize tbe- largest single electrical installation; in the world; and this is being done in the yery center of the agricultural area ofthe United States to change with one move on the economic chessboard the dominant production of the first farming States in the Union from corn and chickens to manufactured products. So large is this water-power devel^ op ment that when it is completed, early in 1913, it will s'hjft tbe manufacturing center of tbe United States' and greatly change the map of industrialism in this country. It is a long step forward in the- evolution of power for manufacturing in America, This evolution has been somewhat of a return to the type in tbis nation of great natural resources: First, there were water wheels in New England and other streams with mills on tbe banks; then came tbe era of coal, whioh built up .Pennsylvania; now the movement is toward turbine water wheels turning dynamos which make power in a form that may be transmitted easily to machines hundreds of miles away from the river. A. similiar change haB occurred industrially i In tbe first era, the raw materials were taken to tbe power, because the power could not bo moved from the overshot wheels; in the era of coal, there came a time when tbe transportation of the fuel was cheaper than the carriage of the raw materials, and some industries moved to the source of supply of the latter; now, power makes sucb a large part of factory cost that the movement is of factories to the power, as in the beginnings of manufacturing in this country, These economic principles have much to do with tbe evolution of all parts ofthe United States which have water power capable of being changed into electric power, which is also the cheapest power the world has ever known, due partly to the economy practicable in its use at tbe machines.—From .
