  • LONDON, July 30 — All foreign pupils at the big German schools were informed yesterday that they must leave Germany immediately.
    A number of English students left last night and arrived here today. One who came from Bonn on the Rhine said that between the town and Cologne the train in which he was traveling passed eight trains loaded with German soldiers going toward the French frontier.
    The bridges and all lines were closely guarded and intense excitement prevailed in all the towns in the district where it was understood the schools were to be converted into military hospitals.

    PARIS, July 30 — The Paris bourse opened today as usual, but there was no business. The nominal quotation of French 3 percent rentes was unchanged.
    It was announced by the committee of the bourse that the monthly settlement for July had been positioned until August 31 for all stocks, including rentes.
    The French public seems to regard a general war as a certainty. The crowds outside the savings banks today were three times as numerous as those of yesterday. Private hoarding and the precautions taken by the Bank of France have almost removed minted coin from circulation.

    Preliminary work by the Clark Henery Construction company upon paving the five-mile stretch of the Pacific highway between Ashland hill and Talent has been begun by the company. The plant has arrived and a force of men are on the way from California to assemble it. Ed J. Fitzgerald will act as superintendent of the work, and 100 men will be on the job within a week or ten days.
    Bunkers and rock-crushing pit have been constructed at the gravel pit near Talent, from whence the rock will be hauled to the road. Some of the rock material will be obtained from the quarry at Derby.
