MARKETING FOR ARMY IS GIGANTIC TASK Duty of Chief Commissary Officer One of Hard? est in Connection With Border Manoeuvres. What the Soldiers Eat. [Special to The Tlmcs-Dispatch.] Washington, D. C, March ?Pic turo yourself starting out to do your morning marketing with a market basket capable of holding over 50,001) pounds of produce and a pockotbook containing $5,000 or 5G.000 with which to mako your purchases. Figuratively speaking, this is the dally task of Major Harry 13. Wilklns, chief commissary ofllcer at the army manoeuvre camps at San Antonio, Tex. Few people realize what a gigantic task it is to see that 20,000 able-bodied soldiers get three, good meals a day. While much has been written about the achievements of other blanches of the army In connection with the newly pitched camps along tho Mexican bor? der, the commissary department has been neglected, and .vet this Is perhaps the most important of them all. Mili? tary experts all agree that In order to get the best services from the sol? dier, first It must be seen that he la well fed. and, secondly, that he Is well shod and clothed. It is Major WTlklns'a duty to see that this first requirement is carried out at the San Antonio camp. In this he has tho assistance of Captain Joseph 10. Cusack, chief purchasing of flcer. As a geperal rule, commissary stores for use in the army arc largely purchased through the War Depart? ment by contract. Uy this means It has been found that the different arti? cles can be secured at less cos.t than if bought by the purchasing officers of the posts where they are needed. Made lu Open Market. In the case of the San Antoi.io camp, however. Major Wilklns has been giv? en authority to purchase any supplies that he may need at the nearest con? venient point. Stich purchases are made in the open market and not through contract. This will mean thut farmers In the neighborhood of San Antonio, Tex., will have no difficulty In disposing of their produce this sea? son, for instead of using canned and desicated vegetables the commissary officers will secure fresh articles when? ever It Is possible. In estimating the amount of food necessary to feed an army, the unit of measure used is known as a ration, or that amount of food required by one man for one day. One army ra? tion costs the government about 23 1-2 cents at me present time. Several years ago rations could be purchased at several cents' less cost. The 20,000 tations needed to feed each day tub army camped about San Antonio costs the government about $ 1,704. Three hundred and twelve cooks are needed to prepare the food when once it has reached the camp. In this work they have the .assistance of an equal 1 number of kitchen police, or soldiers j j who have been detailed to help In the i preparation of the food and also In tho j j serving during meal time. j i Each company has Its own cook \ tent and two regular cooks. Each day about two or ihre.: members of the lespectlve companies are detailed as their aesistunts. In a manoeuvre camp, requiring 20,- j 000 rations dully, such as the one at San Antonio, about 28.000 pounds of ! beef are consumed. About 200 pounds or dried and canned fish ate used. ! Nearly 1,000 pounds of lard arc required, and about Coo pounds of butter. Ap- ' proximately 1,700 pounds of coffee, 2, 000 cans of condensed milk and 7.000 ; pounds of sugar are other important; items. Between 30,000 and -10,000 loaves of bread must also bo included. ! Rations, of course, vary according ! j to the conditions under which they arc i ? to be used. When a military organ! zu- I tloti Is located In a permanent camp. ! fresh meats and vegetables cm gen? erally lie secured, but if an order is t given to break camp and prepare for a campaign the commissary officers must get busy and get together such supplies as can be kept stored for some lime without any ?langer of their spoil? ing. If the regiments * camped about San j Antonio were to be ordered in the field for a week of active campaigning it would be- necessary to carry along J 45,000 pounds of canned beef, 78.750 I pounds of bacon, and 150,000 pounds of j hard bread. Thirty thousand pounds of desclccated onions and potatoes and 15,000 pounds of canned tomatoes j would be needed. Other Items would be. 12,000 pounds of coffee and 22,250 pounds of beans. Dessert for the sol? diers would b? represented by 13,125 pounds of Jam. In seasoning the food 375 pounds of pepper, 6,000 pounds of salt and 13,500 gallons of vinegar would bo needed. Other important items in tho list would includo 6,000 pounds of soap and 2,850 pounds of candles. ?\Vclglif? 100,000 round*. It has been estimated that the net weight of the food necessary to "main? tain an army of 20,000 for one week's 1 duty in the Held would be about 400, ! 000 pounds. This only represents the j actual weight of tho food alone, and does not Include the weight of the boxes, cans and crates in which it I must be carried. The gross weight is I more than 520,000 pounds. Besides supplying the food for an Commissary, With Stock Valued at $1,000,000, Barely Es? capes Flames. Col oil, March 23.?A fierce lire raged to-day in Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Boll vurd and D Streets.

Sixty men from the United States gunboat Paducan rdhdered assistance, and a fire brigade was brought* over from Panama City. Several lives are reported to have been lost.
