St. Tammany Farmer
D. B. Mason. Editor P .tor.
Aside from maihemiaticnl problems, there seems to be no se: rule.
Business, trades and fashions and even social ethics suffer innovations
that make the conservative realize that oonstructiveness and initiative
are tearing away cbstacles in the old worn trails.
Just as thu present method of warfare had begun to develop into a
system of rational comprchension, General Byng shows that a new wrinkle
may upset all calculations and throw a who'e army into disorder and con
fusion. The great gunfire tnat has been supposed to be necessary to dis
organize opposition and clear the way for the action of troops he has
shown may in some cases be very advantageously omitted.
It has been aseerted that the American troops could not become etici
clent until after months of training, and that our officers would not be lit
to lead them, because the old school of military instruction did not meet
present requirements. Something of this may be true, but it is evident
that new ideas are being developed so fast that the practices of yesterday
may he discarded to-day. The soldier who understands the tactics of
military drill and who is fearless and brave will do~good work under
proper leadership. The American readily adapts himself to new condi
tions, and trench lile sl:cuid not offer dhlficulties that will take him long
to master. When it comes to quickness of perception, initiative and the
invention of new methods of circumventing standard safeguards, our
generals may hiad a way, just as General Byng shattered the impregnable
lines of Von Hindenburg's army, and they may invent new ways of doing
things that will further alter the system of warfare.

the club tboys learn the best way of
fertilizing their plot of ground, pre
paring the seed bed, seledting the i
seed, planting and cultivating. ThE
canning club girlo are told how tc
cultivate their tenth of an acre o:
tomatoes or other vegetables, and art
given full instructions for the worl
of canning. During the canning sea
son demonstrations are given in a:
many localities as possible by the
agents and their assistants. At the
end of the eaason a fair or contes
is usually held, and prizes are given
for the best exhibits or the best re

L Reniew of Interesting Events of

the Past Year.
The beg'nning of the year 1917
round the United States of America

alected our President with the cry:
'He kept us out of war."
When all at once the call to arms
resounded throughout the land.
F Germany was using the osubmarine
So0 Intimidate all nations. Our Pres
dent's protest to the frightfulness of
such a campaign was nothing to Ger
mnany. She would sink neutral ships
and everything else in order to win
he war.
We were allowed to send one ship
a week beyond the mouth of the
4udosn river, providing we painted
hat sh'p with the colors Germany
lemanded. All the other American
hips must stay In port or be blown

'ation and our people to be Ignored
)r violaled. The wrongs against
vhich we now array our elves are
rommon awrongs. They cut to the
erv roots of human I fe."
W'ar was declared on the Cth'day
of April.
Immediately after the declaration
of war, the Government started in to
.no~bilize the Nation. National mob
lization means the organization of
p hhe whole country behind the firing
t lines. It means the production of
everything necessary-fuel and food
at the head of the list. Navies must
have fuel; the nation that will win
the great war will be the nation
which has flour In the barrel when
the enemy has eaten his last loaf.
The man with the plow must be
willing to show the country that he
is no less a patriot than the man
with the gun.
Volunteers soon filled the navy
with the amount of men called for.
However, the need of men to carry
on the industrial work of the nation
caused the War Department to put
into effect selectve conscription for
the army. All the men of the coun
try between the ages of 21 and 30
must register. The five hundred
thousand thus chosen would be the
first element of the new army which
would provide further forces, from
time to time, as our military need
required. Young men are better
ashle to endure the hardships of the
campaign; they more readily acquire
the training and skill necessary :n
the use of arms. Volunteers of all
ages still enlist in the army, but the
nation claims the right to distribute'
the burden in the fairest possible
At present most of our regular
army is in France and the new vol
unteers and selectmen are dr Ills
away for dear life, being turned into
soldiers. Wrist watches seem to be
the hardest thing for the oau . o g
used to. Some of them turn their
backs every time they look at the
timepiece, and I read of on. who
says his watch feels like a wart.
An unusual event was the call for
all women from the age of 16 up.
to register on October 17th. This
was done so the Government could
know what service the women could
do if needed.
You all know about our L'berty
Loan.,, Red Cross drive, et^., so I
shall end by saying that the hisiro-i.
cal events of the past year resemble
the Crusades. For America is light
ing this wa: with the cry, "Onward,
Christian Soldiers."

A surprise party was given to Mrs.

It was a real surprise as the recipi

surprisers were surprised. How
ever, all's well that ends well, as the
victim was found and a most enjoy

I have taken it myself for coughs

To the Officers and Enlisted Men and
Women of the Army and Navy of
the United States and their Rela
Teh secretary of the Treasury,
through the Bureau of War Risk In
surance, has been charged with the
administration of the War Insurance
Law enacted by the Congress as a
measure of justice to the men and
women who have been called to gave
their lives, if need -De, in the servica
of their country.
I wish to acquaint you with the
benefits and privileges which your
Government has placed at your dis
posal. - It is essential that you and
your famil'es at home should know
of your and their rights under tht
:aw in order that full advantage may
be taken of them.
To care for the wife and children
of the enlisted man during his ser
ivce, the War Insurance Law com
pels him to contribute up to one
half of his pay for their support.
The Government, on application, will
generously add to this an allowance
of from $5 to $50 a month, accord
ing to the size of the family. More
over, if the enlisted man will maze
some further provision himself for
a dependent parent, brother, sister,
or grandchild, they may be included
in the Government allowance .
If, as a result of Injuries ipcurred
or disease contracted in the line of
duty, an officer or enlisted man or an
Army or Navy nurse should be dis
abled, provision is made for compen
sation of from $30 to $100 a month
to him, and should he die, compen
sation of from $20 to $75 a month
will be paid to his wife, h's chij4 or
his widowed mother.
In order, however, fully to protect
each person and family, Congress has
made it possible for every soldier,
sailor, and nurse to obtain life and
total-disability insurance. This In
surance applies to injuries received
while he or she is in the service or
after he or she shall have left it.
Exposure to the extra dangers of
war makes the cost of life insurance
in private life insurance companies
prohibitive. It was, therefore, a
plain duty and obligation for the
Government to assume the risk of -in
suring hundreds of thousands of our
soldiers and sailors who are mak'ng
the supreme sacrifice. Under thin
law, every soldier and sailor and
nurse, commissioned ano enlisted.
and of any age, fas tae right, be
tween now and February 12, 1918,
to take out life and total-diasbility
insurance up to $10,000 at very low
cost, with the Government without
medical examination. This right is
purely optional. The Goldiers and
sailors are not compelled to take in
surance, but if they desire to ex
ercise the right, they must do so be
fore the 12th of February, 1918.
The cost ranges from 65 cents
