The Rainbow Division, composed
of troops from twenty-seven States
and the first National Guard division
to go to France has had its baptism
of fire. It is now identified as the
American force which repulsed Ger
man trench raids last week. The
commander of the division was
personally congratulated by Gen.
Gerard of the French army for its
cool and effective work
Although the War Department
has not encouraged the giving of
pet names to smaller bodies, there
seems to be no objection to this
method of identifying the larger
units. The Rainbow Division is al
ready famous and others are being
nicknamed by the men themselves.
For instance, the Thirty-first
Division, composed of men from
Alabama, Florida and Georgia, at
Camp Wheeler, Ga , has officially
adopted the nome "Dixie Division "
The four American soldiers con
demned to death by court-martial
in France, two for sleeping on post
and two for disobedience of orders,
will not be shot. Reports that
evidence in the case had been sent
to President Wilson were erroneous,
it has-been learned. Instead, the
reviewing authority here, the judge
a-ivocate general's office, after in
sertion of the records, has returned
them to to Gen. Persniog with a
notation showing the findings were
Meningitis in Gamp.
The discovery by army physicians
at Camp Funston that nearly 10 per
cent of 2,800 new recruits received
there last, week were "carriers" of
the dreaded meningitis, although
none of them was suffering from the
disease, goes far to explain tbe
epidemics which broke out at this
and other camps after the men were
mobilized last fall. These epidemics
have been the basis of most of Che
attacks upon the medical corps in
Congress and elsewhere.
It is now realized, however, that
conditions in camp had little or
nothing to do with the outbreaks.
The germs were brought in by men
who did not even suspect their ex
istence and who were probably im
mune while their comrades were
being stricken all around them
Lieut, Col. Shepard, chief surgeon
of tbe Eighty-ninth Division, who
is in charge of the medical corps at
Camp Funston, bad the men who
showed by tests that they were
"carriers" segrated, and they will be
kept in detention for three weeks.
The medical men have found that
the best way to keep the army
bealthy is to bar out the diseases
the men bring from home.
If Texas passes both the bone dry
law and tbe suffrage law, which
seems highly probable at this writ
ing, what will become of the argu
ment that the women need votes to
settle the liquor question?
Kansas City papers are authority
for the statement that safe blowers
crack a safe in K C. every night-
All of which goes to show what
habit will do, for as everybody
knows, Kansas City cracksmen
could work just as well in the. day
time without fear of being molested
by tbe police.
Two years in the federal prison
at Atlanta for a German spy is not
calculated to remove the opinion
prevailing in Germany that the
United States has "no heart in the

A Philadelphia inventor has
manufactured an aerial torpedo
which, he asserts, can destroy Berlin
add win the war in thirty days. He
is Lester P. Barlow, who has already
invented an anti-submarine depth
bomb that has proved itself to be
of the highest value in destroying:
the kaiser's undersea craft.
According to an account of his in
vention appearing in the Philadel
phia Public Ledger, Barlow says his
aerial torpedo is even more effective
than his anti-submarioe bomb, and,
in fact, "the most terrible destructive
engine of warfare that the world
has ever seen.
