LES A GALLON r Dixon of Stevensville Mileage Tests in the Root Valley, Using tÉnati Amount of Gasoline. Th® McCullough-Turnor company of MlSflOUla hau received a letter from Ashley C. Dixon, manager of the Buasyfllde Orchard I>evelopment com puy Of Stevensville, telling of mileage Uotg which he made In a model it Httpp car. The letter follow»: : "T1*e first test was run with in Ind iana Of gas, and after the ear had been run only 276 miles, which dis tanoo had hardly worn off the stiff ness ©f the motor. On thin charge of gaa I made 182 miles, or about 18 mile* to the gallon. "Thé sécond test, was made with five gallons of gas, and was started from the fiOO-mile mark. The total distance covered with this charge was 101.4 miles, or about, 20 miles to the galjon. "Those runs were made In the Hitter Root Valley, principally between Mis soula and Stevensville, with a fair proportion of side-road work. The average number of people carried was thrô*« with the exception of 30 miles ih'the last test, when five people and tyro suitcases were carried. "I sm satisfied that, after 1,000 miles or IMS* my car will average well above 20 miles to the gallon, ami fully ex pect to get around 25 miles during the Bummer months, with good road conditions. Ht each of the above tests the car StoOd over night, one or two nights, In a cold garage, with the resulting loss of gas to warm up the following day." Her Moonbeam Contretemps No Surprise to Home Folk Bird Island, Minn.—Forgotten is the war in Bird Island today. For had not Helen Möller "danced right out of her drees in New York and it wasn't > so much of a dress either r How the former Bird Island girl, /dancing in the nude, flirted with a moonbeam at the Metropolitan Opera houae In Ootham was the topic of dls cuesion. Some of the folks who knew Helen host were not oversurprtsed that she had danced out of her veil. One woman who had known Helen wolf When she lived here said: "Helen was always fastening something with a pin and it's awfully difficult to make crepe atay with just an ordinary pin." For nearly nine years Helen had been almost forgotten here. She used to live here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Möller. Her mother died and her father moved to Minneapolis and married again. After that Helen took to dancing and* the folks here do not claim that her art dvas acquired in Bird Island, although Helen's preBH agent insisted that her grace came from dancing with the Indians, who, during the last thirty yeaN. have been rather scarce in this • vicinity. Outbursts of Poetry Fail to Get Poet Place in Army Buff- N. Y.—A tidal wave of verse throptened to swamp the recruiting office Of the United States Murine corps here when Burt Gibbs of nowhere In particular entered the office and bunt out: "My country calls! I wish to fight! ÏTÉ* tell me, sir, am I in right?" His auditors were staggered, and one bro-Yer than the rest led the poetic Gibbs, still chattering, into the office of tbe officer in charge. Gibbs effected a lordly bow and swept his hut to the floor: "pve come to fight to clear the sea, To make It safe for democracy." This was followed with : "Prithee, kind sir. I'm known to fame. Think and reflect: Gibbs Is my name." Burt Gibbs may gain poetical, but never military fame. He was rejected as physically unfit. _ A CHILD DOESN'T LAUGH AND PLAY IF CONSTIPATED If Peevish, Feverish and Sick, Give "California Syrup of Figs." Mother!

HUN U-BOATS REPORT ON BRITISH WEATHER TO HELP IN MR HIS London, April 5.—How do the Ger mains obtain the accurate knowledge, which they are known to possess, of weather conditions In England, is oft en asked here. This knowledge Is es sential for them In their air raids, and captured documents show that their meteorological reports are fairly com plete, desptte the fact that no publi cation of weather data or forecasts is permitted In English newspapers. An English meteorological expert de clares that the answer to the question Is not through any system of spies und land wireless, but that the data is derived from observations taken by submarines. The Important point Tor the Her mans, tie says. Is to know the weather conditions off the northwest coast of Ireland, and he thinks that a subma rine working at that place is detailed to send weather reports to Germany by relays through the wireless apparatus working around the British Isles.

Make (Continued From Cage One* 1er and Worse equipped Benedict Ar nold, up to the time of his black treason, was second only to Wash ington in martial genius. Yet by pro fession he was a druggist, not a sol dier. At the battle of Saratoga— the turning point of the Revolution— Arnold, the druggist, forced Burgoyne, the lifelong strategist, to surrender. Israel Putnam, one of the Revolution's foremost leaders, wan a. Yankee farm er. General Warren, hero of Bunker Hill, was a doctor who had absolutely no experience In any form of warfare. Winfield Scott, later the commander of all onr armies, was a. lawyer, with no martial knowledge at all. When our War of 1813 was impending he Joined tin- army, and In a. short time rose to the rank of major general, winning Immortal war-fame at the Hattie of Lundy's I»ano against a Brit ish commander whose career had been devoted wholly to arms. Sam .Houston, the man who le<J n handful of rough pioneers against lh< carefully drilled Mexican army and who won the lndependenee of Texas from Mexico, was a politician and frontiersman, not a soldier. Ills op ponent, General Santa Ana, was Mex ico's foremost professional tactician. Yet Houston outgeneraled Santa Ana, Just as the untrained Texas frontiers man outfought the far larger and pro fessional martial armies of Mexico. Perhaps the most shining example of Americans' natural genius for fighting (and their superiority over he t rained soldiers of other lands) was shown at the Battle of New Orleans, in 1815. General Pakenharn, an Eng lish tactician of note, led a strong force of British regulars to the capture of New Orleans. These troops were veterans of the Napoleonic wars; men who 11 ragged that they had not slept under a roof for years, and who had overcome every European foe they had faced. Opposed to this formidable enemy were a handful of backwoodsmen and shopkeepers and dock bonds, many of whom had never been In a fight. Their leader had no practical military education and who had very little edu cation of any sort. His name was i Andrew Jsckson. He and his raw j militiamen met the British'veterans i and bestowed on them such a defeat ' in fair fight that the Invaders were j all but annihilated. j The Civil war fristlos with such I eases—where a man with no military i experience developed a genius for gen- 1 emlship. I To take a single bright Instance, | out of many. When the war began a ! Boston clerk threw over his job aiA ; went to the front. Tie knew nothing of fighting, but he wanted to serve his country. When the war ended he was a major general—Major General ; Nelson A. Miles. j Grant, Sherman, Stonewall Jackson j —all bad had a West Point training In early youth and had seen actutil ser vice, of a kind. But all three had long since left the army and had de voted themselves to civil life, along one line or another, before the Civil war made them Immortal. None of the three were professional soldiers when the war began; nor had they devoted more than a very few years of their middle-aged lives to the study of warfare. General Leonard Wood was a prac tising physician who Joined the army, as a side line to Ills own profession, as a "contract surgeon." Presently he found his genius was for war rather than for pill-rolling. Paul Jones, first of our sea heroes, had no experience In naval matters when he'Jolned Uncle Sam's new horn navy. Ho tas merely a merchant cai dein —a peaceful skipper of a peaceful cargo-carrier. Yet he heat Captain Pearson of the Ijerapis—a man trained from boyhood to naval strategy. As for the American rank and flic: Our forefathers had never seen a bat tle or (presumably) read a book on "tactics" when they faced the British veterans at Lexington and at Bunker Hlljj; or when they chased a force of redcoat regulars all the way from Concord to Boston. Washington welded that ifndlsclplined rabble Into a weapon that beot back the best pro fessional soldiers on earth and drove them out of our country, ledtdng us free ! St. Bernard Begs Food From Railway'^ Diners Morristown, Tenn.—Meeting trains with dining cars is the favorite sport of Buster, If big Bt. Bernard dog be longing to M. C. Caldwell. Buster knows the trains which carry the dining cars and meets each one that pasaes through the city. But he does not meet the ones which have no diners. !<• lies under the depot abed until the troin Mope, then runs down to the .dining ear, looks up to the Win dow and wags hia tail. If the oooka do not see him, he will bark. When they throw food to him, he picks it up and runs off with it. However, if the food does not milt hitn, he will gt> back and bark again. In addition to calling on the cooks of the dining cars for food, Buster will carry packages from the city to his home. When a British general Is beaten he is given an honorable job doing some thing less responsible. He can save his excuses for his autobiography. Most economical in the consumption of gas.
