The provisions of O. 6. 16. from the
War department, have attracted consid
erable attention throughout tho military
service. Some of the commanding of
ficers have been discussing to what ex
tent, for example, they must personally
fit tho shoes to tho feet of their enlisted
men, ns is one of the obligations com
municated by this new requirement. Tho
order Is regarded as . acUtely scientific
and probably goes Into the subject w 1th
a thoroughness which has characterized
no other official document on this or
any kindred subject In the history of
official publications. On this particular
subject ,tho thoroughness Is due to the ad
mirable work performed by a board of
army officers, which made an exhaus
tive study with many practical experi
ments concerning the style of shoes to
be worn by tho soldier. It was In con
nection with tho requirements of this
order that the surgeon general's office
of the War department gave Instructions
this Week for the purchase of 30,009 cans
of standard foot powder to be used in
connection with adhesive plaster, quan
tities of which are already In stock at
the medical depots, both of which articles
will be supplied by (he depots' on tho
requisition of medical officers.

However. It should bo noted, regarding
Mr. Wattles' letter, that, while most of
what ho said was satisfactory to date,
tho truth only partly told Is, ns usual,
"somo misleading." Tho cars In nil cities
aro badly crowded during certain hours,
hut that condition Is only permitted and
excusable after tho railway company haa
done Its utmost by running as many cars
ns can safely operate on tho tracks, and
oven then the public Is not required "to

The chief of the quartermaster corps
haa under consideration his recommenda
tions, shortly to bo submitted, concern
ing the uniform and Insignia of the
newly organized corps. It Is General
Aleshlre's idea that the insignia of the
former quartermaster's department shall
be retained as the insignia of the en
larged quartermaster's corps, and that It
shall be worn by all officers, whether
those of tho permanent personnel of the
former three supply departments now
comprising the quartermaster's corps or
line officers derailed for duty In the
corps. This is regarded as a sufficient
mark of designation or Identification.
Borne consideration has been, given to, the
adoption of a special uniform for officers
of tho corps, at least for those who will
cornDose Its permanent personnel. Qen-
.roi Aieshlre believes that individual
economy should bo allowed to control the
situation. It Is probable thsTt he will
suggest as the uniform of the quarter
master's corps that worn by officers of
the former quartermaster's department,
but that the permanent officers who were
fnrmerlv of the subsistence and pay de
partments shall bo permitted to wear tho
uniform of their old corps. Tne onicers
who aro detailed from the line will, as
now, wear the uniform of their respective
arms. Alt of them, as has been stateu.
will have uniformity of Insignia. In
other respects, among officers of the
quartermaster corps will be worn seven
different uniforms. This decision will be
received with satisfaction, since It re

OH. PUMPKIN' PIE
W D. Nesblt In Chlcagp Pott.
Oh, pumpKln pie!
Athwart thy faco
An hundred fancies may I trabef
I see the glint of summer sun:
And twilight, when tho day Is done:
The sober peace of musing cows
Who In the mendow grosses browse;
Tho radiant glory of tho morn '
Thnt sweeps acrof.i the nodding corn.
A thousand happy fancies start
When thou art nestling near my heart!
Oh, pumpkin pie!
I hear tl)e breete
That whispered In the maple trees
"I see the swaying fields of wheat
And low across the land nt night
1 catch that ballad of delight
The chant the cricket sings In glee,
And summer comes again to me! 1
Oh, pumpkin pie! Thus dot thou cost
Thy Joyous glamour o'er the past!
Oh, pumpkin pie!
Within thy breast
Theso gladsomo summer fancies rest
The golden sunshine and the dew
Havo paid their tribute through an
through: . ,
Tho song the lark trilled in tho air
Within thy form is echoed there:
And all theso things ot Joy to mo
AVero caught and firmly held by thee.
Oh, pumpkin Pie! Thanks, for all thou
I welcome thee unto my midst!
