subject. - The Kffects of tho War on tho

prevail against it."

There is hut one great theme upon

other subject is of interest only as it
is related to the one theme. There is
no toleration in the public mind for
pure academic or philosophic discus

man need expect to he read or he heard
unless he w riies or speaks on the one
theme People sometimes say: "I have

were nothing more to say or to write:

they prefer to do it or not

LONDON-. July 14.?Germans who are
sent back to Germany after having
been interned in England. are shocked]
at the treatment they receive and at !
conditions prevailing in their Father- !
land. This is shown by letters re- ;
cetved by friends from some of the
prisoners who have been repatriated.
"About 10 o'clock 1 ii the morning." i

Fatherland. The first stop we made !
was at C.oeh. in Germany, wnere we
wer< kept six days for examination.
From there I was sent to Dortmund,
where 1 was forced by the. military to
work in a munition factory. 1 stuck
it out for three days.
"Well, you know in what condition
I was when 1 left England. 1 had to
handle a hundred pounds of shells and
more. 1 tried my best, but I was not
strong enough for the work, so the
third day I toUl them 1 was weak and
lett the place.
"1 was then ordered to do only gov
ernment work, as otherwise I should
be taken for the army. Well, I thought
this took the rake, after being interned
three and a half years I thought I
would get my liberty in the Father
land. but I really was worse off than

could, and on the night of the I

night and a long and dangerous march.
Will, dear friend. I think you would

Dun's Review in its current issue
heds sonic new light on the conditions
which affect the shoe buyers. It says: |
That ordinary business in hides and'
leather continues restricted is due only
to the paucity of offerings, as such
iiuantities of these articles as come on
the markets are quickly ubsorhed by
regular buyers at full prices. Not only
r there a Keen demand for all kinds
of leather suitable for war purposes,
btit these requirements are likely to
remain extensive for an indefinite
period am) a majority of the tanneries,
are expected to soon he working at
from <">0 t - SO per cer.t of capacity on
government orders. While footwear
factories are running to the full ex-!
teiit permitted t>y the available supply
of labor, producers are confronted witii
various problems and many interests(
are only accepting contracts with the!
proviso that the Roods will he made I
:t the leather and other materials
i:? ? eded in their manufacture are ob
tainable. Among the wast advances
announced during the week was a vol
untary increase of 10 per cent to sev

Richmond dry goods merchants have
been advised that still greater hesita

those heretofore prevailing. With the.

I of the base hospital.
I* C. I'lnckney. field director of the!
Red Cross at Camp Lee. who will have !
charge of the construction and opera-'
tion of the buildings at Wasthampton.
has furnished the following descrip-j
tion of the buildings:
' The convalescent building will be
adjacent to the wards where the pa- :
rients sleep." lie said. "It will be in
'he ? nature of a clubhouse, built in!
the form of a Greek cross, carrying i
out the idea of the Red Cross It
will be an attractive building and
will cost in the neighborhood of ?
"00. It will be painted white outsid.? ?
with a red roof, and from the top a :
large Red t'ross flag will be flown.
"Inside, the building will have at I
one end a stage where entertainment.* |
can be giv? n for the soldiers, also '
there win be a moving-picture ma- i
chine so that pictures can be shown i
At times there will he music for the '
men. and If they are well enough the ;
furniture can be moved and a dance <
held Around the walls will he book '
cjises filled with books, and there will
be two large brick chimneys with open ;
fires for the men to congregate around i
In damp or cold weather.
ROOMS KOIt MOTH Kits
ok i)i;spi:kati:i.v im. mk\
There will be writing-rooms and
a sun parlor. Comfortable furniture
and chairs will be placed evervwhere. i
The interior of the building is to oe
in huff with dark brown trimmings.'
There will be shower baths for use m
hot weather. By no means the leas'
important feature of the building will '
he twelve bedrooms on the second
floor, reserved for the mothers, wives,
or sisters of men who may be desper
ately i!i and who wish to be near them ?
and have nowhere else to j^o.
"It will, perhaps, lake a month to
creet and complete this building, but
work will go forward on it as fast '
as possible A duplicate of this build- '
insr has been erected at the convales- !
cent hospital at the base hospital at
'amp l,ee ft is purposed to have
the one at Camp I we in operation
shortly, and anyone Interested in Rod
?"ross work who \isits Camp I.ee should
take the time to visit this building.
Kirk wood Mitchell, associate field di
rector at <":\mp l,ee. has charge of this
building and will be glad to show It
to anyone interested In tt.
The nurses' house, a duplicate of
which also has been erected at tho
base hospital at Camp l.ro. will pro
vide a place where the nurses cat:
meet for relaxation after their ardu
ous duties in the wards. The main
floor of the building will be suitably '
furnished and there will be a larc?
open fireplace for use in winter. ,\r
the other end of the building will ,? i
an attractive little library, a kitchen
where Impromptu meals can be pre
pared at an\ time, and a place where
the nurses can launder their caps and
other frills, if tlicv so desire

' ?"hi the second floor an attractive
sewir>g room has been arranged whi -h
we feel will lie of value Tile whole
will be very attractive in appearance
both outside and in and will doubt
less fill a long-felt want in this camp,
as it has in others. Chairman Worth
am has under consideration the for- i
mntion nf various committees < ,
Richmond women to co-operate it>
caring for the men when they visit
the convalescent house. This has been
a most Important matter at other
camps and the women have rendered
invaluable assistance.
"These convalescent houses arc'
greatly appreciated and well patron- !
ized by the men. Tii every camp where
they have been opened they have be-sn ;
crowded every day. In one of the
Northern camps the first day the Hcd
Cross convalescent house was opened :
twenty-five men straggled in at dif
ferent times to se^ what it was lik-:-. f
They soon passed the word a round. i
telline what an attractive place it was j
and. consequently, lie building has been
packed every dny since. The Kcl
i'r?fs furnishes writing paper for th?- '
men. and I am told tl>i<t the mail from
this building alone averages 30O letters
a day."
WOMEN TICKET SELLERS
Hnllron.l \diiiiii|MCriitlon Open* Ip!
Training; Schools to I'rrpnre Wo
men * <> Do Mdi'n Work.
lierause of ibo need for skilled
ticket sellers and the difli tilty of ob
taining enough trained men, the rail-,
r?>ad administration lias opened schools
in several sections of the country for
training women to till these positions, 1
The nearest of these to (Uchmond is in
Washington. but there may be one in
this city before many moons shall
change.
The present force of trained men'
ticket sellers will be retained when
ever possible, because of the expert'
character of their work, but it has'
been found necessary to supplement
?heir activities with women. This is
due partially to the increase of traffic
and partially to the loss of men to the
army and navy.
When thoroughly trained women
ticket sellers will l>e paid the same
salaries as men doing tlie same work.
Already enough applications have been
made to fill the schools for the. present,
but, as intimated, more schools may
soon be started up.
After preliminary training <>f from
one to two months, the women who
show aptitude will be given work of
actual selling the simpler form of
tickets, and gradually will be worked
into the sale of more complicated
forms

now doing a big business with Uncle
bum in the half-soling line .This con-,

required by government regulations is i
being cut up every day in this citv to:
put half-soles on the shoes of the'sol

The shop in mind is probablv not

reveling in government contracts

may he seen that the government
business, when added to the Immense
trade that citizens of Richmond are
carrying to the shoe shops in these war
times, has brought a heretofore in
significant Industry int.,. something
that is really great.
The composition and rubber half
soles are becoming very popular with
the people generally, who have gotten
down to the half-soling and patching
and mending habits, hu! your Uncle
Sam will have none of these leather
substitutes in his lie requires that
the very t.rst of sole leather shall be
used on the footwear of his soldier
hoys, and when he can't get that kind
on the open market, he just walks into
the l.ip tanneries of the countrv and
the storage houses of the importers
and commandeers everything in sight
that comes up to his requirements in
the sole leather line. These be the
reasons why the citizen has to take to
so much half-soling and mending, and'
why they have to make use of rubber
and the other substitutes for leather, j

Richmond is full of business from
center to circumference, and every man
in the city, and nearly every woman.1
is busy, and yet some people find time I
to do some wonderful figuring, and
then more talking ahout the figuring j
they have done. A well-known .Main
Street business man a few days ago I
took his pencil in hand to do a little
estimating, not over his own business,!
but about national war financing.!
bond selling, etc. When he finished
his huge calculations he startled his
otlice companions by the announce- J
ment that he had figured out that the
United States government had taken
in about four and a half times as
many dollars by the sale of I.ibertv,
bonds for war purposes un there had i
been minutes to pass by since the birth
of Adam.
lie assumed that Adam, had he lived I
until to-day. would he- exactly 5,000 j
years old, arid as there are only .*2r>.
?"?00 minutes in a year, the head of the
human race would be only about 2.62S,- j
000,000 minutes old were he living to-?
day. That enormous figure was multi
plied by four and a half, and something
less than 12.000.000.000 was the result.
The three Liberty loans that have been
successfully floated by Uncle Sam ap
proximate a little less than $12.ftOo.-i
ftOO.OOO. Thar is the way the Main i
Street business man. with a few leisure j
moments at his command, figured the
vvhole thing out.

Review of Week's
Trade in Richmond I
Hope of Summer Rest Spell \
Abandoned by Manufacturers.
Retailers and Jobbers Busy.
Hero it is the middle of Julv and i
there are as .vet no signs of tho'usual
mid-summer dullness in either the re
tail stores or the jobbing houses of
Richmond. Business was good all of
the past week, the weather conditions!
and all other conditions, apparently, '
being favorable.
All the week the shoppers were out i
in full force and the dry goods and j
shoe men were especially busy. There i
was some falling off In the business !
of the grocery men. but this Is always |
the case when the vegetable and fruit
season is at its height, and this is true :
whether the season be backward or
otherwise.
The jobbers in all lines continue to
have good business, and they also re- !
port good collections. In fact, they
say there is less trouble In collecting
bills from country merchants this year'
than they have known in many years j
past. . I
The manufacturers still have their
hands full. They find some improve-,
inept in shipping conditions, but very
little, if any, in the labor situation,
tlovernment work continues to absorb j
too much of the available labor to i
particularly please the establishments
that require large forces of hands.'
The scarcity of labor and the accumu- ,
latioti of orders will prevent most of
the manufacturers from enjoying any-j
thing like a summer lay-off this year.
?*\ en a short one to give a chance for
pairs ami all the like of that.
THE UNIVERSAL TICKET
Simple Kurni of l'ui??enger llnllTrn*
Tlrket That It Kiprctctl to Ite
lleve the 1'rcnNUrr.
The universal mileage ticket, good
< n any rallwa." line, that there has
l? er. so much talk about is near ui
hand 1 Mrector-CJeneral McAdoo makes
ihf announcement that they wll he
placed on s:\le on or before August 1.
Agents in Richmond have information
which leads them to believe, they will
he selling the unlversals even before
the date namcj It will be called
universal mileage scrip.-' and *-111 be ,
^old at the basic rate of 3 cents per
mile.
Kach coupon of the ticket will repre
sent the value of a cents, and can l>e
used tor the payment of sleeping .'tnd
ilin'ng ear charges and transportation
o* excess baggage. as well as trans
portation charges on all trains on rail
r .ad.: under government control.
There arc several obvious advantages
f.ir the traveler in this simple form of i
ticket, but the principal one is it will
relieve the pressure on ticket agencies
in the busy centers like Richmond.
BIG SHIPPERS SAVE MONEY
BY HEAVILY LOADING CARS
(HKCentltr Story, Scene of W hleh 1* .Not
l.nlri In ItlrHmonil, hut Might
Have Ileen.
The scene of the story below, taken
mm the Railway AK't was ?ot laid in
Richmond, or anywhere in Virginia, but
it is suggestive and contains a lesson
that may well be learned in these parts.
The story reads:
In a campaign which V* ,h? large
railways is conducting to increase car
loading, attention was called recently
to a shipment of perishable products
which would require 1?>0 cars under
the. then-existing methods of loading
nut which rould be carried in 100 car.-*
f loaded to capacity. This was called
?tf. the notice of the shipper who re
plied tha' I? would cost him $5 per
car additional to load in this manner. ,
The railroad officer offered to pay thlr
tadded expense it it actually proved to (
be necessary. After the shipment was
loaded as recommended the consignor
asked for his $500. The railway man
indicated his willingness to pay the
amount, but stated that the shipper
should in all fairness deduct from th<?
additional cost all saving.- which lie :
himself had made throigh using r? '
smaller number of cars. The r.iilroad
tnan th<Mi pointed out that the cost or
icing sixty cars at $S each, or $4S0.
had been eliminated, lie likewise esti
mated the savings in demurrage, in
labor because the shipper had only,
100 Instead of l?-ft cars to move from
his door, etc.; anil the shipper finally
was forced to admit that he actually
saved money through loading the cars
heavier. This experience is worthy f?f
emphasis among shippers in general,
often they load c:\rs heavier only be
cause of their desire to do the patriotic
thiiig under present conditions while
ha.boring the thought that they are
making a sacrifice in so doing, when as
it matter of fact they are themselves
profiting by the expedient. When a
shipper can be brought to realize that
It is to his own selfish interest to load
cars heavier, he will he given the
strongest possible ? incentive to do so.
In approaching shippers on this sub
ject railway men can well afford to
bear this point In mind and to consider
the conditions under which their pa
trons operate sufficiently to he able to
present these savings intelligent ly to i
them.
CARY STREET BUSINESS
l.fTorls to near Kgg .Market Failed.
Spring t'hlckenn I.oirer?Menu Hold
ing Kirm?Other Votes.
Cary and Thirteenth Street produce
men. commission merchants and whole- i
sale poultry dealers were fairly busy j
all of last week. They had no coin- j
plaints to make either of receipts of!
good things for them to Kill or of the!
demand for them on the part of rc- '
tailers and market men.
fn the poultry line there was much'
business. The receipts of spring1
chickens continued large, with prices
somewhat lower, while hens held firm
at former quotation?, with somewhat
of an upward tendency. The "bears"
in the egg market attempted a drive
011 all the sectors during the week,
but they signally failed in getting the
prices down to any extent, and towards
the end of the week gave it up as
a bad job. The receipt of eggs were
loo light to encourage the efforts of
the bears. The fact is that very fe.w
eggs are coming in from Virginia and
North Carolina points, and Tennessee
and the Middle West have to be de
pended upon for them. The quota
tions from the Tennessee and Western
centers in no way helped the bears,
and it was ea?ily seen that instead of
lower prices for eggs the bears as
well as the consumers may expect to
pay bigger figures this week.
Fruits and vegetables were in fairly
good receipt and business in this line
was active all of the week.
\pnii of Knr South Cotton Crop.
The government prophets have had to
modify their previous cotton crop esti
mates. much to the confusion of specu
lators and cotton manufacturers. With
the weather map showing a con
tinuance for more than a week past of
extremely high temperatures and lack
of rainfall in Texas, the cotton outlook
| in that great staple growing State has
j become a matter of some anxiety and
1 has prompted speculation in the New
| York, New Orleans and other markets.
I Yet, so the reports go, prospects else
where in tho cotton belt remain p-en- (
orally promising. How tho reported
crop Uolerlorallon In Texas will ulYcct
tho next ofllcial calculation Is a ilcoiUed
ly Important question: in .1 <^y. last
year, the crop hold Its own, but that
more or less declino in condition is
usual during that month the records
for a long series of years demonstrate.
Anyhow Richmond dryuoods dealers,
arc not looking for an advance in prices i
of cotton fabrics on account of the bad |
news front that Slate.
ENCOURAGING OUTLOOK
(iuud Times Aliead for Invratorn Seen
liy Thone W ho Miike Study of
Sltuutloii.
j
Richmond financiers and Investors i
who have made a close study of con- j
dltions say that expectations for a]
bright business future are encouraged '
by the stupendous scale on which this'
country Is carrying on its shipbuilding'
industry, especially at and about th?i j
Virginia ports. It not only is highly <
encouraging to the conduct of tho war.
but :s eloquent proof that America at
ilie same time is laying the founda-j
lion for a policy which will insure tho i
ot-rritnetcia! supremacy of this nation.'
It means continued prosperity of the'
stc I. eoppcr and equipment industries i
and continued activity for the rail
r >nds of the country. It means con-i
tl'tued aotixit} in all manufacturing I
and mercantile, lines While there are j
nsa:\> | roblcnis in tiio economic sltua-'

which thev are being solved can but
