Tho light hand baggage, containing toilet nrtlclcs nnd n change of undercloth ing, which tho men nro permitted to tako with them to camp, will ho In spected by tho board nnd tho lists of 1 men sent forward made out and copies of original registration cards prepared.

Exempt for retreat roll-calls, the men will be given town llborty until forty-five minutes before train time. Tho board will, during this interval, select one mnn from tho levy who is deemed best qualified to command nnd plnco him In charge of tho party for its trip. Ho will name a second In comand to aid him and the oilier men will be told that the orders of these two men must bo obeyed under pnin of mllltnry disclplln.

Tho tickets, with meal tickets, all papers relating to the party Includ ing tho copies of registration cards, will ho turned over to tho man in cnmmnnd, and tho party will start for Its training camp. Must Watch Over Men. It will be tho duty of tho com mander of each party to watch over his men during the trip, to see that none are left behind nt nny station, that all are fed regularly, and that no liquor is furnished to the men en route. When within six hours of tJie camp he will file a telegram to the Camp Adjutant General notify ing him of the departure of the train, i the local board will send a similar message. Every precaution has been taken to meet nny emergency in ad vance. Should a train be delayed by accident, tho commander of each party will have proper telegraph blanks to report the fact to tho Camp Adjutant General nnd ask Instruc tions. After the departure of the levy for camp, tho local boards will turn to gathering up stragglers. If there Is evidence of wilful violation of orders, tho offender will be reported to tho Adjutant General of tho Army as a deserter nnd the local police will bo j asked to arrest him on sight and turn him over to tho nearest army post for trial. Where there was no Intention to desert, however, and the missing man reports of his own will, tho board wil send him on to the camp with an explanation nnd a rec ommendation ns to his degree of culpability. Arrived nt the camp, the party will undergo final physical examination ;by nrmy doctors. It nny nro reject ed tho local board will be notified nnd an alternnto sent forward for loach such case. Tho net quota of a board will be regarded as filled only when tho full number of men called for, hnvo been finally acepted. Provision is made, nlso, for a strict nccountiug as to quotas, between the Federal Government and tho Adjut ant Generals In tho first Instance and between tho Adjutants and tho local boards In tho second.

Signamle of WwZTW YANKEE GUNNERS HARD ON U-BOATS ki:i:p suiimarinks uni:k sea Y PlItINO AT KVKRYTHIXa FROM LOGS UP. Washington, Aug. 11. It looks ns tho tho submarlno menace has been ovorcomo. Hundreds of ships a week bear tho stars and stripes thru tho barred zone, across which tho Kaiser said we might send ono ship n week paint ed like a barber pole. The Navy Department Is ndherlng to Its pledge to announce any dis ncter. No disaster has been accounted. The nnswer Is that tho Yankee gun ners nre keeping the submarines bs low tho sea and that Yankee Quarter masters aro learning to lay big ships on a course that would make a polo pony Jealous. When a U-boat com mander can safely get but one squint nt a tnrgot less stable than a well conditioned flee, his deadly torpedoes go astray slnco Simm's squadron turned the gamo and taught it to our merchantmen and transports. Yankee gunners when they enter the barred zono nro taking a shot at anything. They admit this. Float ing logs, bits of wreckage, even big sea birds, everything that bears any resemblance to a periscope, right off feels the crash of a three-inch shell. Theso things nro shattered because the Yankee gunners score hits. There aro no scratch crews, such as many of tho British merchantmen carry. These aro among tho best shots of tho United States Navy. From what has been learned of Admiral Slmms' reports there have been real periscopes among theso vic tims. This is borne out by the ap parent caution which tho German has learned. They no longer He calmly half submerged with engines stopped and everything ready for a fair launching of thdir torpedoes. They must take their shots on tho run and after but one glance. Absolute co-ordination between the Slmms patrol of destroyers and our transports and rnerckantmen has evi dently been attained. It is generally believed that the ships are sent thru previously cleared and always chang ed channels. Secretary Daniels is now consult ing with experts as to how much of tho detail of this story can be made public. When It comes out it should bo ono to stir tho soul of every American who knows the navy and believes In his country.

This is accounted for by tho facts that most of theso banks received only a relatively small amount of tho bonds they subscribed for, and that thoy hnvo mndo salos to their customers of thoso they did receive under the allotment. Tho fact that tho bank3 aro not loaded down with thoso bonds. Is regarded by tho Times ns denoting a very healthy condition for tho Liberty Loau bond market as it Bhows tfliat there is a popular demand for the bond. Tho New York Sun snys that the astounding leap In tho number of bond Investors from tho comparative ly small nifcnber of bond holders pre vious to the Llborty Lonn Bond salo to over four million subscribers to tho Liberty Lonn, hns opened the eyes of tho banking world to tho enormous possibilities which will undoubtedly bo at their disposal for placing the second government lonn. Tho people, It stntcs, have been im pressed with tho ndvantnge of sav ing nnd lending money to the govern ment. , Postal savings in New York have been mounting rapidly notwithstand ing numerous purchases by small in vestors of Liberty Loan Bonds.

Tho United States Geological Sur vey, Department of the Interior, re ports that the Presidio silver mine, in Texas, was in continuous opera tion during tho first six months of 1917, that mining was also carried on during that period In the Vnn Horn and Siorra Blanca districts, and that several shipments of copper ore were made from deposits in tho "Red Beds" of Foard and Knox counties. The result was a small output of cop per, lend, and zinc but a production of silver for tho six months of fully 340,000 ounces. "BOTTLED LIGHT" SEEMS REALITY INVENTOR GETS PERMISSION TO ILLUMINATE WHITE HOUSE GROUNDS. Pittsburg, Aug. 12. "Bottled llgtit" will soon illuminate the front hiv n oi the tVhito House in Wash ington, according to the lnvetor Ethan 1. Dodds, of this city. Mr. Doods, who recently returned froji the r.atlonal capital, claims to have nn order from President Wilson for he light, which will shine from an arc globe twenty Inches in diameter and will bo "sparkled" every night from the Arlington Heights wireless station. Gugllelmo Marconi has perfected the "sparker," which enables tho Doods globe to be lighted at a dis tance of 2,000 miles. Altho the light Is to be a gift to the Nation, it will not bo surrendered until Mr. Mar- eoni lights a globe in San Francisco from his wireless plant in Now York. The Dodds light will hum best under water and it gives out no heat. The Navy Department has been con ducting a series of tests In many big harbors strewn with mines. By tho use of tho invention an undersea lane can bo marked out thru which ships may pass In safety. No scintillation takes place In tho light and ships coming into tho safety lanes will hnvo no trouble nt night In following the routes. An enemy ship at a distance can not seo tho Dodd light on ac count of tho absence of reflection. Because it gives out no heat "bottled light" will find an invaluable placo in coal mines. Mr. Dodds, who formerly was asociate with Georgo Westinghousc, stumbled on tho new principle of light storage while experimenting with radium. Business Hcholurbhlp.
