NEW BARN WAS DEDICATED.
Henry Jenning & Sons' Midsummer Furniture Sale
Means Money Saved to Every Practical Housewif e
This semi-annual sale needs no introduction to thousands of families who have taken advantage of it for
many years past. To those who are not familiar with our methods, let us explain that although our
prices are normally lower than will be found elsewhere (quality considered), we always turn the quiet
month of July into one of the busiest of the year by cleaning up our stock at tremendous reductions.

Colonel George W. Goethals has "out-
Germaned" the Germans in efficiency In
the construction of the Panama Canal,
according to Senator Benjamin Ryan
Tillman, of South Carolina, who arrived
in Forx'and Friday to visit his daughter
and son in-law. Mr. and Mrs. Harry w.
Hughes, for a week. To this efficiency
he credits the success of the tremendous
undertaking: which he Inspected on his
way to Portland. He tells of his visit
"I spent a week In the Canal Zone,
two days on the Atlantic or Gulf side
and four days on the Pacific. Although
in no way connected with the Army,
except as a member of the appropria
tion committee, I felt it my duty to
get as much information as I could
about actual conditions there.
"J became enthusiastic by association
with the Army officers, coast artillery
officers .and those of the r gular in
fantry. The artillerymen a f& working
like beavers at both ends to get the
fortifications in good condition, and al
ready have in place, ready for business,
many heavy mortars and 12 and 14-inch
rifles, so I feel convinced that any hos
tile fleet attempting to enter at either
end would receive very warm treat
ment, "General C H. Edwards is in com
mand of the forces on the isthmus, and
he laid himself out to have me see and
know what the Army needs are. Hav
ing known General Edwards in Wash
ington for many years I was not sur
prised at the grasp and earnestness
which he displayed.
"But notwithstanding the fact that I
was an invalid, so to speak, by sheer
will power I was able to stand up under
OeneraJ Edwards Right Man.
"I visited the camp of the Third In
fantry, detailed on the south side of the
Canal, and became convinced that Gen
eral Edwards Is the right man for the
job on the isthmus.
"He is prepared to repel any invader
from any source whatsoever, be he Ger
man, Jap or what not.
"Captain Hugh Rodman, of the United
States Navy, In charge of the special
duty of putting ships through the
Canal, then took me in hand, and we
ran down to tiatun dam on a special
motorcar belonging to the I. C C. which
means, on the isthmus, Isthmian Conal
Commission, and not Interstate Com
"I returned through the Canal on a
tugboat part of tbe way through Gatun
Lake. Then Captain Rodman took me
in a steam launch up the Chagres River
as far as I cared to go, after which
we took a steam launch and continued
our journey by water to Pedro Miguel,
from where we returned to- Balboa,
Panama, in a motorcar. Thus I have
had an exceptional opportunity to view
me uanal from all angles.
"I saw from the top of Culebra cut,
having been carried up the side of the
mountain in an Army ambulance.
"Cracks 100 or more yards from the
canal brink werehown us, and I saw
earth sliding down on the south side
from the top into the canal itself.
"So I have seen it from the water
and from 300 feet above the water. I
am thoroughly satisfied that it will
take a long time how long I do not
for the earth to be so stabilized
an to render the canal permanently
Mountain SUUInK In.
"The engineers believe eight months
is enough, when they hope that the
expense of dredging will cease. Of
course I do not presume to put my
judgment against theirs, but the cracks
in tl?e earth on the north side of the
canal indicate that the mountain is
moving toward the water, elowly caus
ing the mud to press up from the
bottom of the canal, and dredges are
constantly at work four or five of
mem taking out this material.
I make a crude guess that it will
require two or three years more and
several million dollars before this work
will be completed. Since the 22,000-ton
Finland came through the 'canal, on
wnicn I sailed for San Francisco,
enough earth has slid into It to pre
vent me iiroonland, her sister ship,
from following, and I doubt seriously
wnetner the three battleships on which
the Annapolis cadets are to visit the
exposition will get through safely.
I was much impressed with the
wisdom of President Wilson in not per
mitting our battleships to go through
the canal at this time, as they might
have been prevented from returning to
Aamirai Jtousseau had shown me
the Gatun dam before I left Colon.

United States at the time, but I did see
Colonel Harding, his assistant. I be
came impressed with one thing, after
talking with some ot my old South
C olina friends whom I found there,
thi Colonel Goethals has had one idea
has out-Germaned the Germans
in V, great work, and if a man was
sentJo the canal who did not make
good. Colonel Goethals told him to
move on. It has been his religion.
"The work impresses one in its mag
nitude and greatness at every step
taken, and. In expressing my opinion,
I believe it is as permanent as human
energy and skill and brains can make it.
"Science has lent its aid, and modern
engineering, with American leadership,
has accomplished a stupendous task."
