CANALS IN THE WAR.
Canals have played an Important
part In the present war and their
value is most Interestingly told by the
Philadelphia Ledger as follows:
"The historian will tell the next
generation about the enormous value
of canals In this European war. Over
exactly the caravan route-traveled
by the Crusaders 800 years ago the
Germans have a canal from the Rhine
to the Danube. It is therefore pos-
sible to send a submarine from Co-
logne to the Black Sea with as much
freedom from a hostile shot as to
navigate a canoe 'on the Schuylkill
"The Black Forest Canal Is playing
vital part In Germany's swift mo-
Miration of war munitions just as
the Kiel Canal makes its fleet as safe
from an enemy's battleship as if it
vera in the great park at Berlin and
miles from a navigable stream. x
"The Egyptians had .canals before
the days of St Paul but the Jock ca-
nal which made it possible to cross
mountains in a boat came only a few
years before Columbus discovered
"To be told that Raphael was con-
structing a locomotive would scarce-
ly surprise yon more than to be told
that Leonardo de Vinci was a pioneer
canal lock builder. But the bands
that put upon the walls of that his-
toric church In Milan 'The Last Sup-
per also designed the locks for Mi-
"America's first canal was dug at
South Hadley Mass. when Washing-
ton was President It was completed
120 years ago. That little waterway
gave De Witt Clinton his idea for the
canal across New York State the
greatest single Impetus ever contrib-
uted to the upbuilding of a large city.
It was the Erie Canal that gave New
York the needed speed to pass Phila-
delphia as the metropolis of this continent"
It again becomes the duty of The
Eagle to call attention to the
fact that rent houses are sorely need-
ed in Bryan. That we have not more
of the better class of cottages and
residences is seriously crippling the
city and Is likely to become worse in
the future. Many men holding Im
portant positions with the A. ft M.
College want bouses In Bryan but
cannot get them. One prominent Col-
lege man told the editor he was se-
riously thinking of sending his family
away because be could not get a
house In Bryan. There are others In
the same fix. Here Is a problem for
the Commercial Club to solve.
Our own C. Stubbs Gainer Is on the
ground at the big Democratic conven-
tion in Houston and got himself quot-
ed in the Houston Post as follows:
"Former Representative C. S. Gainer
of Bryan Is a delegate from Brazos
County. However he says he had a
real mission in coming to Houston.
That was to see President W. B. Scott
of the SuDset-Central and Mr. Cush-
Ing and get them to complete a rail-
road extension out his way. He men-
tioned a lot of things be was going to
do if they didn't hurry up and build it
A prominent citizen suggested to
the editor today that we tell the peo-
ple if they-do not wish to cut the
weeds to have the hogs that are be-
ing unlawfully kept within the city
limits turned out and let them eat
Between trying to see the top of
the Rice Hotel and figuring on how
to cross Main Street the -State Dem
ocratic convention in session in Hous
ton is likely to be deprived of the
wise counsel of many of the up state
If the European war continues
print paper will no doubt become
scarcer and for that reason it may
not be long until In our dally news
papers will be represented all the
colors of the rainbow.
The Eagle hopes some of the coun
ty good roads or some of the resi
dence streets to be paved will be
completed before the day of judg-
ment so that "Old Main" will not be
-vorn to a frazzle.
Bryan can be kept clean and sweet
and pure and wholesome and beautl
ful it the city and the citizens will do
If you bave a few extra dollars put
It In a rent house. You will be a ben-
efactor and get a good return on your
Bryan can be freed from mosquitoes
If we will only look after the stand-
ing water and keep the weeds cut
It Is to be hoped the office-holders
will not be permitted to dominate the
State Democratic convention.
Say a good word for Bryan. It you
can't say something good don't say
Old Bryan is literally being turned
upside down and inside out
The people are cutting weeds. Keep
the good work going.
Service Is all the tax payers want
but they do want that.
WISE AND OTHERWISE.
"Now to Illustrate the roundness of
the earth" said Columbus "I will
show you an egg." "That doesn't
convince me" replied the court as-
tronomer. "If you had waited till the
erg became an omelet it would
prove that the earth Is flat" Wash

MRS. HELEN M. BOWMAN.
One of Bryan's Early Settlers and
Most Respected Ladies Entered
As briefly mentioned in The Eagle
Monday afternoon Mrs. Helen M.
Uowman passed quietly away at her
home In this city Sunday morning at
11:30 o'clock after quite a long Ill-
ness. Mrs. Bowman was one of the
pioneer settlers ot Bryan coming
here first 53 years ago and was a
daughter of the late Col. and Mrs. A.
O. U Hill.
The high esteem in which she was
held by her neighbors and those who
knew her best was attested to by the
many people who were present at the
last sad rites which were conducted
at the home and the many beautiful
wreaths that covered her last resting
place. Mrs. Bowman was a woman of
a very lovable disposition. She lived
her life for others and the height of
her ambition was to make others
She was born at Champenolle Ark
October 4 ISIS and moved with her
parents In 18C3 to Brazos County.
She was then 17 years old and at
the age of 22 on October 6 1868 she
was married to W. II. Bowman ot this
city who bad been a lieutenant In the
Confederate army. In 1879 Mr. and
Mrs. Bowman moved to Weatherford.
Texas and remained there until 1888.
when they returned to Bryan resid-
ing here until her death.
Mr. Bowman died on August 8 1903
and since that time she baa lived with
their only child. Miss Grace Bowman
in this city.
