In recognition of the devotion of
these women France lias just created a
series of medals in sold, stiver and
bronze which will indicate service from

and hn.pi'Hl workers have received the
highest military decoration. Their
deeds of heroism have equaled those
of the men.
Six thousand French nurses, it was
estimated today, constantly serve In

to constant risk of death from shells.

this kind that might be given.
Will the soldiers have time for
reading in the training camps? Yes,
The soldiers in these camps are only
required to work six hours a day.
This leaves ten idie hours with leave

WASHINGTON-. Sept. 13.-Th real
President of the United States arrived
in Washington the other day. He ad

he stepped off the train from Keokuk,

One chap educated and ostensibly in
telligent came all the way from Cali
fornia to arrest the President. He ran
the Secret Service gauntlet at the
Union Station and calmly walked up to
the White House before guards nabbed
him. Another sage came from New
York with a weird tale of the shooting
of 400 German spies on the Brooklyn
bridge every day. He wanted President
Wilson to have the same system start
ed in Washington.
A woman working in a government
bureau had a revolutionary invention
that she wanted to bhow to Mrs. Wil
