SAYS CAPUIPLINGER. Temptation Will Not Be So Great For Soldiers. Ideal Place For Winter Training. Hattlesburg, Miss., Aug. 28, 1917. "I have been glad from the start that we llooslers were coming to Mississippi," said Captain John II Kiplinger, of Com pany n, Fourth Indiana Infantry, who has the honor of leading tlte first Natlo nal Guard unit Into Camp Shelby He said This is not a new country to me I have been in Hattiesburg once before and other cities of the state. So I knew that a great deal of the prejudice against Mississippi on account of its mosquitoes and malaria was false. And I knew that the climate and soil make it prac tially an ideal place for winter training. I may add that much of the dissatisfac . tlon in Indiana at sending our troops here is disappearing. "Another reason I am glad to be here," continued Captian Kiplinger, "is that it is a dry state. As soon as my company was mustered into the federal service we put the lid down tight on liq uor. Although the men are raw recruits and have not been disciplined as well as the older men, and although we have been in camp richt in our own town where it would have been a comparative' lv easy matter for the men to get drinks from their friends, only one has had any, I dont think he will tnkeany more. 'Red eye' and training for war don't mix. am clad that temptation will not be present " I nnrr'tnti nn nl .T TV ( 'u fllimftll'H. J Hov. I. C. A'rgubright is conduct ing the meeting.

There is a tent meeting heiug Because of the high mortality jimong German sulminrlnc comuinmlcrs tho German admiralty has been compelled to Impress former captains of German merchantmen Into tho U boat service. British skippers along tho Brooklyn water front who have been "torpedoed out" of vessels within the last few weeks report that they are meeting former acquaintances with increasing frequency In command of submarines. One such meeting led to the first re corded case during the "ruthless" block' ade of genuine solicitude on tho part of tho U boat' commander for the welfare of his victim:- For obvious reasons the name of the ship nnd the British skip per concerned cannot be mentioned, but it can be said that both the ship and its master were well known In the Atlantic trade and along the Brooklyn water front. The U boat had, as usual, signaled tho British crew to abandon ship and row to tho side of the submarine. The captain obeyed instructions under cover of the German gun. When he clamber ed on tho submarine's deck and handed his paitors up to tho commanding oUl cer their eyes met. There, was a Hash of recognition, and both men stood In open mouthed ns' tonishment. They were old acquaint unces ami una una many n iricuaiy glass together In Brooklyn, Liverpool and Ilnmburs before the wnr. The German was this first to recover him self. "Why, hello. ," he said In Eng llsu and reached out his hand. 'Tin sorry to see you here." The British skipper snld he was sorry to be there and lnciulred after tho health of the German olllccr's family. Both for moment forgot that they were enemies, "I'm sorry, , but I've got to sink your shin,' the German snm uuiuiy "But I'll tell you what I'll no. its ngalnst all regulations, but you go back and get your personal belongings and those of your men and stand by while I sink the ship, and I'll give you a tow imrt way to shore." The Get'imm was us good as his word. IIu gave the Britishers time to get back on board their vessel and sling their luggage Into the boats. Then they rowed to eno side nnd waited. few shots from tho U boat's deck gun sent the vessel down. The U boat crew paid out a long tow line, to which the lifeboats were lash cd one behind the other and towed tin til within rowing distance of tho Irish coast. There the lino was east off, and the submarine submerged. BURBANK MAKES NEW FIND Yield of Wheat Will Bo Increased by "Plant Wizard's" Discovery.

YOU'LL have to be a little more careful these days in buying clothes. Just because the price of wool is steadily advancing, many manufacturers of clothing have begun to adulterate their fabrics with cotton in order to maintain a low price. That means, when you buy adulterated goods, that you are getting less for your money than before. And the presence of cotton in the wool makes a suit wear out quickly and lose its shape in a short while. You can't afford to invest in cheap clothes now. It will pay you in terms of wear and satis faction to buy standard all-wool Clothes. The only way to be sure of all-wool quality is to buy Hart Schaf f ner & Marx clothes. They have won the confidence of a nation of men and are guaran teed to be all-wool and to satis fy you absolutely. B. F. BEARD & CO.
