fnt, the report from the Militia Board
that the National Guard Is deficient In.
! jttejigth become highly Interesting. This
s faBtiiney reaches the serious figure of
-jrlnrly 18,000 men. The report shown that
In." no State Is the prescribed minimum
peace strength of all organizations of the
, mllltla maintained, nnd that In many In
stances tho deficiency has reached such
f figure ns to leave the organizations of
as value ns military assets to the Foil
, rl Government
Many of the "States tlu not pay their
"Share of tliccost of maintaining the State
mllltla, hi a large number of States, the
Federal appropriation Is greater than that
rr.nde by tho State Legislatures. In some.
- of thse States the Federal approprln
lion Is three or foilr times, ns great as
. that made by the State. In Arkansas, the
State Legislature for the" lost two yehrit
nan macie no provision whatever for the
support of Its organized" mllltla. In the
State of Alabama the Federal appropria
tion Is four times as large ns the State
appropriation. In Louisiana It Is twice
that of the Stale. Kentucky receives nve
times as much from the Federal Govern
ment as It appropriates for tho mllltla.
MISSISSIPPI FAR BKIllND.

It Is true I have been wounded, but In

our worst days was September 11. It
rained all day, nnd we were shut up In a

My company lost all Its ofTlcers execpf
one, and he was wounded next day. Such
n fine ofilcor. " Mr. Denton, was shot one
day when we had the order to retire. It
eccmed too hard to leave him, so I took
off my waterproof nnd went back, for him.
Pour ot us carried him on this sheet

he kept saying, "Leave me, Slnimondsi

seemed just within tneir grasp, but they;
