HIGHEST PRAISE Spirit and Discipline of the Men of the Pennsylvania Militia Commended Pennsylvania's National Guards- j men showed splendid military spirit,, commendable knowledge of duties j and scood discipline at the several en- ; campments held last summer and are j praised rather than criticised in the j reports of the officers who made the f inspection. Detailed reports with comments by Col. Frank G. Sweeney, | inspector general, were made public) here to-day by Adjutant General; Thomas J. Stewarl. The ratings are given in tabulated j reports, but only regiments are given . general average iigures. Tills Is be-1 cause inspections of different organ izations are made by different officers. They show two Western Pennsylvania | regiments, the Tenth and Eighteenth, j to be tie for iirst honors with a gen-j eral average of 97.3. Other averages | are 16th, 96.5; 13th, 9«.2; Ith, 95.8; 9th, 95.4; Bth, 95; 14th, 94.9; 6th,, !14.7; Ist. 94.5; 2nd, 93.8; 3rd. 92.8. The auxiliary organizations are pot | Kiven general averages except the i .signal corps which is given 95.3. Praise From Sweeney Col. Sweeney says the "admirable j appearance" of the infantry was due | to the new uniforms, the personnel was "very good" and the soldierly hearing, as a rule, excellent. The uni forms worn, he says, were too heavy for summer wear. Earnest efforts to lake care of rities were eyident he | linds. but belts, bayonets and some other equipment is criticised, while some officers were found without full equipment. Officers are commended for efforts to have men subsist on Stale rations, but camps are praised as improving, cleanliness was sought hv Ihe men in charge, but there is criticism of conduct in detraining and entraining. "The spirit and demeanor of the Guard have been favorably re ported updn by all inspectors," says the Inspector General. The men became interested In the work and instead of trying to evade duty manifested a keen desire to learn, says Col. Sweeney, who at tributes it" to the course of instruction. He urges more attention to guard duty, to military courtesy and the hiring of teams. Meld hospitals, engineers, signal corps and artillery were reported in good shape, although the artillery be ing in camp with the regulars the in spection was apparently not as satis iactory as in years past. Col. H. L. Haldeman, commissary general, urges adherence to State rations and that officers should not mess with men and that civilians should not be ad mitted to mess on Guard meal tick ets. The Fourth Brigade Concerning the Fourth Brigade, of which the Eighth regiment is a part, Major M. H. Taggart, of Sunbury, who inspected it says in part: "Due to the character of the sur-j face of the ground alloted for the en campment of this brigade, it was Im possible to have the regularity and precision of camp construction which il was accustomed to in the past but 4\this handicap and obstacle was largely overcome and a most satisfactory camp was made and maintained. The latrines and bathhouses were main tained in a remarkable condition of cleanliness and little damage was done to them, and the Company streets were carefully policed and the lents uniformly rolled during days and hours permitting thereof. The kitchens and incinerators received special attention at my hands, and I • njoy being able to say I note an Im proved condition in both over past years. However, 1 cannot help but j see the unusual large amount of equipment carried by some commands for messing purposes, and believe this is a mistake. "A marked improvement in knowl edge of duty was noticeable as the week progressed. Interior Guard was lax and indifferent, and saluting by sentinels and soldiers was almost ignored, I believe, from want of proper Instruction. "I report a quiet, orderly camp, | with the personnel kept dressed and orders faithfully complied with. "Renewing my recommendations of | the past, year, that at the next camp ] of instruction, each regiment establish what it considers to be an ideal cook and mess arrangement, and from the several arrangements such parts be selected and assembled as appeals to the assembled officers as the most economical and satisfactory arrange ment, and let that be standard, thus disposing of large, heavy and un necessary boxes, cumbersome tables, secure cleanliness and appearance, without sacrificing handiness, and generally benefitting all and hurting none. T saw refrigerators over six feet high, and some companies with several boxes, any one larger than the aggregate of all the boxes of other companies." | WEST SHORE NEWS New Cumberland's Xmas Tree Celebration Program Special lo The Telegraph Xew Cumberland, Pa., Dec. 16.

BUSINESS WOMEN SHOULD TAKE CARE • Dr. Dixon Gives Some Practi cal Hints Regarding Strain at Christmas Time State Commissioner of Health Sam uel G. Dixon in the course of a discus sion of the strain upon people at Christmas time says that the business woman should take care of herself and see that she gets proper food, clothing and exercise. Dr. Dixon goes into the matter in detail and makes some ex cellent suggestions. Dr. Dixon says: "There are more than eight million women wage-earners in the United States. They are represented in al most every branch of commercial ac tivity. "The question of the health of , women workers Is one of the utmost HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH importance, not alone on account of the elficiency of the individual, l>ut because the future of the race may be materially affected by the health of these potential mothers. "A woman's nervous organization is more sensitive than that of a man. In many trades, occupations and em ployments this very fact has been re sponsible for women's success. Good taste, tact and deftness are qualities which should be cultivated to secure the greatest, value from the services of female employes. "The maximum number of hours of labor may not always bring the maxi mum of production. Scientific efficiency experts have proved thnl shorter hours and reasonable rest periods often re sult in increased production. Nearly all corporations and large employers of women workers have learned that by making adequate provision for the care of their employes their efficiency is increased. • The women in business should re member that within certain limitations her well-being rests largely in her own hands. There are four essentials to good health—eight hours' sleep in the fresh air, regular exercise, sensible clothing, wholesome food. Without these neither men or women can maintain their physical well-being for any lengthy period. "No woman should try working on her nerves. This may be kept up for quite a while when pleasure or tho demands of business tempt one to rob themselves of the necessary amount of rest. Invariably one must foot the bills, so in the end the reaction is apt to prove dangerous. "At this season of the year thou sands of women are working under a continual strain. They should rec ognize tliis and for the time being cut pleasures and devote themselves to getting sufficient rest outside of work ing hours to carry them through the stress of the holiday business con ditions. Better, too, a few personal preparations for Christmas neglected than to risk a breakdown after the holidays."
