QUEEN LOSES THREAD WHAT'S OF CONVERSATION The kaiser can well pride himself the enterprise of his German subjects who have invaded England industrially and are about to open an coal mine at Harworth. The mine lies near the edge of the rich and busy coal district around Much of the machinery Doncaster. used will be German. The invasion of the Yorkshire coal field by the German company working on German methods has been regretted in English mining circles, but the opportunity of acquiring the property was first offered to and declined by English coal owners. Herr Stinnes then stepped in, and a company was formed with a capital of $2,000,000, which was fully subscribed, chiefly in Germany, but partly in England. The complaint that British mining engineers have been ignored is also hardly justified, 'or two English engineers have been retained by the company, and Arnold Lupton, also a mining engineer, is one of the two Rritish directors. The contract for the sinking of the shaft has been let to a German firm.

It is a sound muffler. Being equipped with the new invention, the army airship "Z 25" passed over Berlin, and the noise which it made was hardly audible. The success of the invention was the more striking, because the passenger ship Hansa passed over the city immediately afterwards. The rattling and whirring of the machinery of the Hansa could be heard for miles ahead of the ship. The invention will be of very great importance in case of war in the air. In cloudy weather an airship equipped with a sound muffler will be able to steal close upon th6 enemy without being discovered. n assistant chief DANIELS n Count von Moltke, a nephew of the famous strategist of the Franco-Prussiawar, and the general staff of the army are planning ?or next autumn the largest military maneuvers the world has ever seen in time of peace.
