Checks Ready for Soldiers' Families. Washington, Jau. 18. Dependents of Kentucky soldiers soon will receive their first allotment of pay from sala ries of enlisted men and also the addi tional payments which the government adds to the soldiers' allotment depend ing on the number of dependents. In every instance the two amounts will be combined in one check on the treasury.

One is the magnitude of the undertaking and the o'.her is a limited force to carry it into execution The last batch of checks was mailed out today. The fiist army checks will be for the November allotments, and the first navy checks will be for the December allotments. It is expected that after the lirst rush is over the work will be kept current. Don't Don't answer a letter just because somebody else wants you to.
