After Four Years of Discouraging
Conditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky.-In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, I could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat
ment relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.

NOW HERO OF BRITAIN
Iis Struggle Against Ottoman Troops
'Has Been oniarka'e and Success
London, Feb. 13.--The remarkable
stand which has been made by Major
General Chas. V. F. Townsend and his
comparatively small body of British
troops at Kuat-EI-Amara, Mespotamia,
where for nearly two months they have
been beseiged by a large army of
Turks, has raised General Townshend
to a high place in the esteem of the
English public. The far away war
theatre has -been watched with the
deepest interest by those at home
since the British repulsed the Turks
at Ctesiphon, and began their retreat
to Kut-El-Amara and the exploits of
Gen. Townshend have occupied much
space in the newspapers, some mill
tary critics hailing him as one of the
most brilliant soldiers the empire has
During 'the long siege Gen. Towns
hend has beaten off all attacks of the
Ottoman troops and kept his little
force intact, Every dispatch which
has come through from the command
er has been read with deepest inter
est by the public that has feared
that the relieving army, which is said
to have been held up by natural ob
it.acles, would (reach Kut.El-Amara
too late. Gen. Townshend's recent re
port that he had suflicient supplies for
his soldiers partly relieved the minds
of the British people, who now are
anxiously awaiting the outcome.
When the full story is told of the
battle of Ctesiphon, the retreat to Kut
ElI-Amara and the siege, it is expected
by the British to make as thrilling a
chapter as any in the history of the
world war, and the name of Gen.
Townshend will occupy an important
place in that story. The conflict at
Ctesiphon was desperate work and the
general himself fought as flercely as
any of his soldiers, who that day put to.
flight a body of Ottoman troops said to
have been six times their number.
There were critical moments and it
was at these times that Gen. Towns
hend showed himself to be a cool and
resourceful commander and an able
tactician. Four times he rallied his
men and led them in their charges.
Military critics declare . that the
victory of Ctesiphon was a magnifl
ent one but that the retreat to Kut
will equal if not surpass it as a suc
cessful military achievement under
disadvantages of an extraordinary
kind. It is stated that not only did Gen.
Townshend ward off the Turks, but
he did so with a loss insignificant un
der the circumstances and he suc
ceeded in taking with him all his
wounded. It has been declared that
the men under him would follow Gen.
Gen. Townshend is said to have
forced himself to a high command
through sheer merit. When he was
only a lieutenant he became a hard
student of Napoleon lie studied ev
ery wvork on the military theories and
practices of that great general.
Gecn. Townshend long before 19141
hmad situdhied the possibility of wvar

Bi'a: Will Need Much Amending.
Vashlingion, Feb. 12.-The proposals
Df the National Guard association for
federalization of the state troops were
before the military committees of con
gress today in the form of a bill
drafted by representatives of the as
sociation at the request of the senate
committee. The regulations contem
plated are given force by a provision
limiting participation in the federal
pay feature to officers, men or organ
izations complying with certain specd
The scale of annual pay proposed Is
Major generals $800; brigadiers,
$700; colonels, $600; lieutenant col
onels, $550; nnjors, $525; captains,
$500; first lieutenants $300; second
lieutenants, $250. Enlisted men would
be paid on the basis of 25 per cent of
the pay rates of the regular army, a
private receiving approximately $15
The maximum number of troops
provided for by the bill is 500 for each
congressional district or a total peace
strength of approximately 200,000, an
increase of 70,000 over the present
strength of the national guard. They
would form a separate branch of the
regular army in time of war when
called 1lo .the federal service. Tihe
net would take effect July I, 19161.
The bill provides also for .rgaUiza
ion of at junior guard composed of
boys bet.ween twelve and 18, available
for active service only after every oth1
er class of militia had been called out.
The juniors would be divided into two
classes, cadets, or those of lifteen and
above, and cadets of the second class
those less than fifteen.
An enlistment contract would be re
quired under which the soldiers would
bind himself to serve the federal gov
ernment "within or without the con
tinental limits of the United States"
for a period of two years or until dis
charged should the guard be called
out at any time during his three years
enlistment period. The enlistment
period of any soldier whose time was
close to expiration when his regiment
was called out would be extendee auto
It is proposed to do away with
choice of ollcers by election, and
commissions would be limited to spc
ified classes and granted only after
examinations by the war department.
Promotion during active service
would be made by the president from
the commissioned force or ranks of
the organization, dependent upon the
grade to be filled. This clause is aim
ed at appointments from civil life.
