line he said:
"I know of my -own absolute knowl

before a class of thirty-five or more and
go through the pretense of teaching when
they are physically Incompetent to

the only way to do it is to secure the
passage of a law requiring physical ox

The daring dash of a German squadron
to within ten mles of the northeast coast
of K rig and indicates that the prolonged
Inactivity of the larger units of the Ger
man fleet has been broken by a raid on
the coast of England, but much satisfac
tion la expressed that the cruiser Halcyon,
by the clever seamanship of its com
mander, escaped - from a tight corner
practically uninjured. The retiring Ger
man squadron dropped floating mines In
Its track and this delayed pursuit.
Another interesting naval development
was the long dlntance bombardment ot
the Dardanelles by a combined allied fleet.
Athens reports that seventy shots wero
fired at the Turkish forts by the British
ship. The result of the engagement Is un
known. A huge pillar of smoke on shorn
indicated that some of the shells must
have found their mark.
The official reports from Belgian head
quarters are becoming more positive in,,
their assertions that the enemy Is pre
paring to withdraw from his hard won
position on the southwest coast of Bel

not before the city had become an unten

London it is considered as hardly likely
