Inefficiency Incarnate. At a recent session of the Senate Mili tary Committee, General Crozier, chief of Ordnance in the United States Army, said that in the various arsenals of the United States there are, at the present moment, more than 7000 machine guns which are available for the training of troops. Now for the other side of this machine gun proposition. Senator Lewis of Illinois recently made a visit to the Illinois division which is stationed at Houston. He inquired into j its condition and equipment. He was in i formed, among other things, that the division has only one rusty machine gun that can be "used for training purposes, and that this gun has been “trained with” I so extensively that the threads and bear ings have been worn smooth, and the gun will no longer hang together. There should be sixteen machine guns for every machine gun company, and this entire division has but one—and that one is worthless. The question now arises why, if the United States has more than 7000 ma chine guns stored "for training purposes,” in the name of common sense it does not turn a few of them loose where the troops can become familiar with them? Seven thousand guns held up and a full division of the Army fitted out with only one rusty gun that can no longer hang together! There is a fine situation, and the worst of it is that it is a situation for which some fool in the Ordnance Department, of the United States Army, or in the War Department itself, is directly responsible. In heaven’s name, how much longer are men of the Army to be subjected to such idiotic deprivations as this? The thing is worse than idiotic. The men who are responsible for the lack of machine guns in the hands of the troops which need them so badly for training purposes are directly interfering with the efficiency 01 the army. mere is aosoiuteiy no excuse tnat can be offered for things of this kind. They are the results of stupid inefficiency of the worst type, and whoever is respon sible for them should be court-martialed and thrown out of the Army—if he hap pens to belong to the Army—or dismissed from office in disgrace if he happens to be a civilian. The men of the Army are trying to do their best to serve the country. The peo ple are trying to do their best to aid the Army and the country. It is disgraceful that the efforts of the men of the Army and those of the people should be nulli lied by such inflamed inefficiency as has been shown in this one matter of ma chine guns. [From the San Antonio, Tex., Light.) Children Cry FOR FLETCHER’S CASTO R I A NO MORE CATARRH A Guaranteed Treatment That Has Stood the Test of Time. Catarrh cures come and catarrh cures go, but Hyomei continues to heal catarrh and ‘abolish its disgusting symptoms wherever civilization exists. Each year the already enormous sales of this really scientific treatment for ca tarrh grow greater, and the present year | should show’ all records broken. If you breathe Hyomei daily as direct ed it will end your catarrh, or it won’t cost you a cent. If you have a hard rubber Hyomei in haler somewhere around the house, get it out and start it at once to forever rid yourself of catarrh. A. A. Howes & Co., or any other good druggist, will sell you a bottle of Hyomei i (liquid), start to breathe it and notice how quickly it clears out the air passages and makes the entire head feel line. Hyomei used regularly will end catarrh, ! coughs, colds, bronchitis or asthma. A j complete outfit, including a hard rubber I pocket inhaler and bottle of Hyomei, costs but little. No stomach dosing; just breathe it. It kills the germs, soothes and heals the inflamed membrane. Does it Pay to Grow Grain? “We have been doing more of a manu facturing business than real farming, de pending as we have upon the West for our grain feeds. So long as western feeds remained cheap enough, this sys tem was all right; but it lacked the most fundamental basis of permanence; that is, an adequate area of fertile soil, and now that western feeds are no longer cheap, a readjustment of the business Is inevitable. “The situation isn’t as bad as if New England farmers couldn’t grow grain. They can when the price warrants it. Massachusettsgfor example, used to grow, back in 1845, 90,000 acres of corn as com pared with the present 47,000, and 42,000 acres of rye as compared with the pres ent 3,000. It is all a matter of whether it pays or not. If one cannot afford to buy grain doesn’t it follow that one can afford to grow it, assuming that one has the necessary land?’’ — New England Homestead. HATS OFF. y Maine claims the distinction of having the banner Red Cross membership town of the Union. Isle au Haut, with a pop ulation of 156 has a Red Cross member ship of 133. The other 23 people in the town are becoming interested and wil 1 probably join soon, giving the town a 100 per cent, membership, which would be a world record. Isle au Haut is a small village, about 20 miles off the' coast of Rockland, it takes two and one-half hours to reach the mainland, and during the winter it is only possible for the steamer to touch there when the wind and tide permit. The main industry is fishing and lobstering, and the money which supports the Isle au Haut Red Cross is earned with hard work at peril ous risks. Aviation Notice. Within the last week men applying for commissions as officers in the aviation Section of the Signal Reserve Corps, have appeared at Portland before an ex amining board recently appointed to hold examinations for applicants from Maine and New Hampshire. By addressing the U. S. A. aviation ex amining board, 806 Congress street, Port land, Me., information may be had which should be of interest to young men of good physique between 19 and 30, (both inclusive,) who want to serve their coun try and incidentally to learn to fly. Men somewhat older who have technical train ing or business experience along certain lines, may qualify as non-flying supply officers, adjutants, etc., to the flying squadrons. The two men who fought hardest for preparedness in this country were Con gressman Gardner, who has just died, and General Wood. The former was held up to ridicule and told that he was hysterical. The other was punished by being given an inferior command. The men responsible for the treatment of these two men are now floundering around trying to make up for lost ground.—Port land Press. HUSBAND SAVES WIFE From Suffering by Getting Her Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. Pittsburgh, Pa.—“ For many months I was not able to do my work owing to U WCORUCOO W 1111.11 j caused backache and headaches.

Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.”— Mrs. Jas. Rohrberg, 620 Knapp St., N. S., Pittsburgh, Pa. Women who suffer from any form of weakness, as indicated by displacements, inflammation, ulceration, irregularities, backache, headaches, nervousness or “the blues,” should accept Mrs. Rohr- 1 berg’s suggestion and give Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound a thorough trial. For over forty years it has been correcting such ailments. If you have mysterious complications write for advice to Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn. Mass. That Jap Naval Station. Newspaper readers with long memories may recall a certain disquieting rumor that kept floating around two or three years ago, to the effect that the Japanese had established a naval base in Southern California, and were prepared to land an expedition in Mexico to help the Mexi cans tight the United States. The gov ernment investigated, and reported That there was no ground whatever for the rumor. Well, the source of that particular lie has just been revealed. The German gunboat Geier, in November, 1914, took refuge under the American flag in Hono lulu, fleeing from a Japanese cruiser. The Geier was interned in due form. The officers were trusted as gentlemen. And this is what they did: They rigged up a powerful wireless out fit on their ship and used it to make trouble for the United States. To camou flage their operations they always gave band concerts to drown the crickle while they were using it. They relayed mes sages for Ambassador BernstorfT, Von Papen and Boy-Ed from Washington to German agents at Manila, Hongkong, Shanghai, etc. Thus they operated as a branch of the great German system of intrigue and propaganda. And while they were not working on anything else, they amused themselves by sending out ingenious lies of their own, to embroil the United States and Canada. The Jap anese naval base yarn was one of their pleasant fancies. Another was the story that Germans in this country were or ganizing a military expedition to attack Canada.—Bangor News. Hay. The following is an extract of a letter received from the office of the Food Ad ministration in Massachusetts: F. S. Adams, Bureau of Markets, Augusta, Maine. Dear Sir: In answer to your letter in relation to the hay situation in Massa chusetts. It is true that there is a hay shortage, or, at least there is no quantity of hay on hand in Massachusetts, and it is almost impossible to procure hay from Canada and New York, because of lack of transportation. It ought to be a good time for Maine hay to come in, and if the quality of hay that you refer to is desir able there should be no question about placing it off hand. I understand the embargo which has been on hand for some days is to be lifted tomorrow. Yours very truly, George H. Ellis, Executive Committee of Food Produc tion. THE ONE WAY OUT. There can be no doubt that we are in want and are going to be in greater want. Our Allies must be in deep and bitter want. The world for three years has been destroying instead of saving. It has been and is crazy, and the result is before us with worse to come. But why should this pitiful condition make anyuody think that Germany, the cause of all the hellish turmoil, is flour ishing? Stop and think a moment. She is lined up against almost all the rest of the world. The seas are open to the Al lies, except for the submarines, and for the Germans there is not a ship at sea. All that mighty fleet is bottled up or busy for the Allies. Just ask yourself whether you would rather have your country in the position of Germany or in that of the United States or any other of the Allies. The worse our condition, still worse must be that of Germany. It is a question of en durance, and it stands to reason that those countries can stand out longest that have the greatest resources and the greatest opportunities of exchange of supplies.—Hartford Courant. OF INTEREST TO FARMERS. Washington, Jan. 18. A price of $75.50 a ton, f. o. b. seaboard for the nitrate for fertilizer which the depart ment of agriculture has purchased in Chile for sale to American farmers at cost was announced today by Secretary Houston. The farmers must pay the freight charges from ports and the State tag fees, and payments must be in cash. Ships carrying the nitrate will be direct ed to the most convenient ports, the sec retary said, and the nitrate will be handl ed at seaboard by representatives who will serve without compensation. In the farming districts county agents assisted by local business men chosen by them will handle the shipments, and in coun tries where there are no agents a com mittee of three or more local business men will be appointed. Farmers are re quired to file their applications with the agents or committees not later than Feb ruary 4th. At the same time they must deposit the money covering the cost of the nitrate they wish with the local bank association or individual to be designated by the department, CASTOR IA For Infants and Children In Use For Over 30 Years VEILS ARE NOVEL . . ,1 Huge Chenille Dots May Be Scat* tered Over Surface. Vogue for Metal Embroidery Has Ex tended to This Accessory—Plain Type Always in Good Taste. Dots and dashes. It sounds like a telegraph code, but is in reality a de scription of one of the season’s novelty veilings. Chenille dots—huge ones, sometimes —are used as borders on plain veils, or are scattered all over their surface. One sees black veils, embroidered in white and there are white veils em broidered in black. Combinations are rather good this year. A pale tan veil is embroidered in navy blue; one of light gray uses purple for the contrast ing tone. The vogue for metal thread embroi dery has extended to veils. Black em broidered in gold, and dark blue em broidered in silver, are among the most effective ones seen. Fine hair-line scroll designs are much used. These are in all sorts of patterns. One of them has a series of flying larks placed at intervals along its surface. Acorns and oak leaves help to make another charming. Veilings of chantilly lace are a bit hard to get. one is told, but they are eminently desirable where one wishes not so much a face covering as a hat drapery. And of course, tne piain veil, imu Is never anything but good. Good taste, good looks, good—sense! One runs no risk of having a ludicrous dot decorating the end of one’s nose when one thought it was well to the side. Or of having all sorts of harmful inter ruptions between the field of vision and the eyes. In fact, the eyes are especially grate ful for the plain veil. And it’s not an unwise thing to insure their gratitude, j YEARS BRING ADDED CHARM Most Attractive of American Women, It Is Declared, Are Those Who Have Passed First Youth. There are many people who hold that the most interesting and attrac tive of all American women is the woman who has passed her first youth. The years have brought much more to this woman than they have taken from her, says Vogue. She has ac quired mental and physical poise, a knowledge of how to deal with the world, charm—oh, any amount of charm—and an ability to bring out her good points and to conceal her deficiencies. She is delightful to meet and charm ing to look upon, and she dresses with a subtlety and skill that is well worth careful study. In the small arts of dress, which are so important in their significance, she is past mistress. Her clothes are designed with a sure knowledge of line, and the details of her toilette are interesting subjects to consider. Her huts are always be coming, chick, and worn in the most effective manner. In the daytime she is smartly veiled, and at night she is perfectly eoiffed. Her jewels are not merely ornaments; they are the one thing needed to complete her costume; they emphasize a contour or conceal a line, or bring out the delicate tones of the skin or the glossiness of the hair.
