LONDON, August 27.?In 1017, when
England had a food re-nerve BUfTlclent '
for only a few weeks and Germany
wan Milking shiploads of meat and
grain raster than the world s ship-1
yard6 could build tho ships or the
world's harvests replace the food, the
women'a land army played its great ;
Part In the effort to make England
self-sufficing for her food, and women
crowded into the shipyards to do work ;
which, through the long years and cen- j
turies that. England has been a sea
faring nation, they had never attempt- !
od. Thoy helped to build food Bhips,
they worked on steel warships and
cruisers to convoy thein. This we
knew, but we have waited a year to
learn that Scottish ilsnerwomen also
did navy work at a new naval base.
"They did," Mr. Kellaway. a Scotish
memoer of Parliament, now tellB us,
"the heaviest of the blast-furnace anu
excavation work."
But these proud deeds were not for
the many. Vet women who could not
do tiiis were not content to sit down
and see titelr country starve. It Is I
true no one talked of starvation, but
London streets were full of women
and children waiting outside shops In
long queues for tue chance 01 buying 1
a lew pounds of potatoes. The win
ter had been very long. Easier was
nearly as cold as Chiibtmas. It look
ed as though nothing would ever
grow again, <?nd yet we knew that the
best time had already gone by for
making preparations for a harvest on ;
which ao much depended. Here comes ;
in tho etory of tho "allotments"?war
gardens?.a story of little eiYorts by
people who did not know how to set
about their work; a rather ridiculous;
story from some points of view. The
new allotment-holders, or "plotters,'
as they were chathilgly called, were
not bv any means all women, but worn- i
en formed an ever-larger proportion |
of them as the army and navy slow.y |
drained tho country of inen. I
Allotments ur? plots of ground for
growing vegetables. Beforti the war 1
country laborers had them aiul some
suburban artisans and a few eccentric ,
schoolmasters and college professors. :
liut, as a rule, no one out farm la- ;
boicrs grew vegetables anywhere but
in their own gardens. townspeople
otten had uu garden at all, and oftener
had only a patch of lawn and a llti.e
border of liowers. There were 'tss
than 500,000 allotments altogether m
1'j16, and a good inany of them were .

TRAINING DETACHMENT
PLANS BIG LABOR DAY
Fair Ground Soldiers to IXipse Fourth
uf July t.'elelirntion?New
Event* Scheduled.
The United States Army training de
tachment stationed at the Fair Grounds
gave Richmond a never to be forgotten
Fourth of July Celebration, and Is now
bent upon giving Richmond the most
exciting Labor Day In its history.
Judging from its paet performances, the
detachment is well uhle to carry that
plan of attack to a most success*
f'.:l conclusion.
From the beginning of the training of
the present detachment, the olhcers,
under the direction of Captain Alcott
Farrar Elwell, the commanding officer,
have been mapping out special features
for the Labor Day program, with the
rerult that at the present writing it
appears the Fourth of July celebration
will be far outdistanced by the exhibi
tion to be given next Monday.
In addition to showing some of the
big features of the former program, iri
cludlng the aeroplane exhibition by Art
Smith, many new stunts, both in th?
military and in the athletic events wit
be shown. Among these events will
an expert shooting exhibition furnished
by some of the best-known crack shots
in the country.
News of the success of the Fourth of
July tournament has trnveled to Wash
ington. nnd some of the most promi
nent officials in the War Department
are planning to attend the Labor Day
tournament for the express purpose of
seeing the results which are being
achieved through the two months in
tensive course of military training be
in* carried out at the Fair Grounds.
The commanding officer has attain
designated Lieutenant Carl Helm to be
the supervlsine officer In rharge of the
general program. R. W. Moon, as
sistant general manager of th? school,
will represent the Richmond City
School Board and assist the military au
thorities in carrying the tournament to
a successful conclusion.
DANCE FOR TOBACCO FUND
Arlntlon Sqnad to filif Ilrnrflt Enter*
tiilninrnl at Armory Sat
urday Night.
That there Is considerable difference
between the cigarettes and tobacco that
the Richmond soldier boys got "some
where in France" and that which they
are accustomed to at home is shown
by a letter from P. S. M- Heckman.
formerly n. clerk in the office of the i
Administrative Board, to Chairman I
John Hirschberg.
The former clerk is now Sergeant
Major Heckman, with one of the regi
ments in the Eightieth Division, which
rained at Camp l-.ee. He writes that
.h? cigarettes over there are made in
England, are labeled to indicate that
they are composed of Virginia tobacco,
but that this is all camouflage, as they
never have seen "God's Country."
The aviation squad stationed here has
announced that it will give a dance
for the Blues' tobacco fund in the
BlUes* Armory, Saturday night.
The Richmond Blues are now Com
t panles E. P and G. of the One Hundred
and fourth ammunition train, of the

Try this! Your hair appears

Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy

There is nothing so destructive to
the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair
of Us lustre. Its strength and Its very
life; eventually producing a feverish
ness and itching of the scalp, which
If not remedied causes the hair roots
to shrink, loosen and die?-then the
hair falls out fast. A little Danderine

save your hair.
Get a Ewnall bottle of Knowlton's
D&nderine from any /Irug store or
toilet counter for a few cents, and
aftor the first application your hair
will tahe on that life, lustre and lux
uriance which Is so beautiful. It will
become tvavy and Huffy and have the
appearance of abundance, an incom

will please you most will be after
just a few weeds' use, when you will
actually see a lot of fine, downy hair?

Danderlno Is to the hair what fresh
showerB of rain and sunshine are to
vegetation. It goes right to the roots,
invigorates and strengthens them. Its

Insects in Wounds

Army Surgeons Claim They :
Very Frequently Prevent
Blood Poisoning
?VVITII TUB AMERICANS ON* THE
AISNK-VKHI.?-: FRONT, Augusl 27.?
"Inserts In 1 Wounds frequently save
the lives of m?n forced to lio in no
man's land tor long periods before they
are fotin'l ..-.nd brought in for treat
ment." said a surgeon at an advanced
drcsflinK station to a correspondent
yesterda y.
A youth was found In a shell hole,
where he had been lying in- a semi
conscious condition Fine? Inst Friday.
His leg was shattered by a shell splin
ter. and th? wound was Infested with
vermin. The wo'ind was cleaned and j
disinfected, and the leg probably will 1
be saved.
The inserts, the surgeon explained. |
largely prevent blood poisoning, al- 1
though they cannot live if the gas !
gangrene bacillus Is present, which is I
deadly uni?is amputation takes place j
Immediately.
The veriiiin keep the wound open. }
permit drainage of the poison, slow up
the bleeding, and allow the air to got!
to the vJound, which Is the best thing I
until proper treatment is possible.
Since the comparative stabilization of,
the lightii.f,' on this front, a certain \
number ot" wounded Americans and
Germans have been brought in, after
iying undiP< overed as long as five days.
In every ? ase the men will recover,
though amputation is necessary oc
casionally.
All say the principal suffering is from !
lack of water. The pain is deadened |
after a time, they assert, and their,
general condition "is usually such that i
they do not feel the lack of food so |
keenly. Jn most cases wounded ineri '
seek shelter in shell holes, under con- !
tinuai lire. The shell holes are usually
half full of water, which makes it all
the harder since it Is impossible to
drink it. because it reeks with gas or
poison fumes from the shells exploding
all around.
The men generally have rations with
them for just such contingencies, but
tnlrst kills their appetite. I^ost men
are usually found by night patrols, who
overhear the groans, the wounded not i
daring to call for help, fearing the '
enemy may be near.

An Important Discovery
Swollen Veins Relieved
That Absorblne, Jr., would relievo
varicose veins was discovered by an
old gentleman who hatl suffered with
swollen veins for nearly fifty years.
He had made many unsuccessful efforts
to get relief nnd finally tried Absor
blne, Jr., knowing Its value In reducing
swellings, aches, pains and soreness.
Absorblne, Jr.. relieved him and
nfter he had applied it regularly for a
few' weeks he told us that his legs were
as smooth as when he was a boy and
all the pain and soreness had ceased.
Thousands have sinco used this antl?
septic liniment for this purpose with
remarkably good results.
Absorblne, Jr., Is made of oils and
extracts from pure herbs and when
rubbed upon the skin Is quickly taken
