Why ilo not more men enlist In llio money, niul that it limy ho thnt a
nrniy of the L'nltnl Stutes? That jjiress aKcnt will be 'unpointed us a.
question has been nskctl continually
adjunct to the general
In the last year, ami thnt thcio nro
reasons for It Is shown by tho con
stantly dwindling enrolment nnd tho
stronu efforts being mado In every
direction to persuade able bodied
joung men of good moral character
to serve their country undor units for
threo ears at least, or If possible to
make the location of the soldier their
life work, sa8 tho New York
Klght recruiting stations on Man
hattan Island alone moTipun for thu
reception of recruits, yet In De em
ber, nlthough tho enlistments wero
under tho control of an energetic and
capable otilrei, they were able to re
gister onlj 170 men for tho army.
Considering that thoy diuw from a
city of four millions tluough tho
gates of which aro passing each year
millions of men from nil over the
country, the lack of lespousos to the
general Imitation to enlist Is sur
prising and aftliug tlioso who nro at
the head of an army already nearly
many thousands less than It should
bo In time of peace.
No kuslnctx house or corporation
yhlch has n new product for halo is
endeavoring to extend Its campaign
of education and persuasion with
more energy than Is the federal gov
ernment in behalf of the army. Thou
bands o'f dollars ato being spent on
advertising of nil Jclmls. Invitations
to rally to the army standards appear
in tho paid advertising columns of
tho newsapcrs, and on deml walls and
in shop windows aio posters nnd
cards setting forth the advantages of
Tho army llnds that Its efforts to
got eligible young men nro matched
by tlioso of tho navy, for only re
cently tho smallest war vessel In tho
or a hospltul orderly. It Is consider
ed as only preliminary, and is sub
ject to revision later by the Burgeons.
It goes without saying that tho ap
plicants must bo ablo to speak, read
and vrlte tho llngllsli language. The
enlistments nrc conllned to citizens
of the United States and to aliens
lliterutmu and sent nshnre blogrnpli
opeialors to denionstralo with mov-
I'vimi. ' Jiniuira lliu uuan uuiiiiy til in'iiif;

Scale Slightly Vnrialk.
Various tables arc employed wlilrli
show tho physical qualifications nec
essary for tho different branches or
tho army organization, nlthough If
an applicant be in good health and
have llrni muscles tho exact applica
tion of tho scale Is not required. The
minimum wolght for all aims of tho
MM'vlce Is lS pounds. Tor Infantry,
coast nitllloiy and engineers tho
holght must not bo less than live feet
tour Inches nnd tho weight not more
than 100 pounds. For cavalry and
Held artillery, except mountain bat
tel lea, tho height must not bo less
llinn llvo feet ton Inches and tho
weight should not oxteed lfiK poundSi
For tho mountain butteries tho height
must not be less than live feet eight
Inches and not more than six feet.
A variation not exceeding a fraction
of an Inch above tho maximum height
glvon for cavalry and field artillery
is pcitnisslblo if tho applicant is in
pood health and Is in other respcclB
n dfbtrnhlo recruit.
After u candidate has been measur
ed ond wolghed nnd not found want

become such ho Is likely to bo passed
from t.ha recruiting station to Fort
