gives a striking example of this in his

Mr. Krob's ill-health began

friends to try Nerv-Worth he was
skeptical. To show that his doubts
were unfounded he says:

They doped me with strong narcotics

Four hills, one of them national in
its scope, were introduced In the House
Saturday by Representative Ilarry C.
Woodyard, as follows:
(1) A bill to grant pensions to teamsters,
bridge builders and railroad repairers
who served the government
during the Civil war.
(2) A hill for the relief of West Virginia
state troops for disability or disease
contracted In line of duty while
co-operating with the forces of the
United States during the Civil war.
(3) A bill granting pensions to the
officers and soldiers who served in the
West Virginia stale troops In' the Civil
war under orders and authority of the
governor of the state of West Virginia
while co-operating with the United
States troops.
The fourth bill was a special bill

Something more than a letter of recommendation
from a member of Congress
Is necessary to secure a commission
in the army, but most West Virginians
applying evidently didn't
know It. The first requisite is lo pass
an examination. So many of liis constituents
have shown an unfaniiliurlly
with the regulations and requirements
that Representative H. C. Wood yard
secured a statement covering important
points from the adjutant general
of the War department, which Mr.
Woodyard is quoting to all inquirers.
The statement which is or follows,
should serve to put many West Virginians
right on this matter of securing
a commission:
"The candidate for a commission in
the army to be eligible for provisional
! appointment as second lieutenant,
. which is the only grade in'tiio line of
the army open to the appointment of
candidates from civil life, is required
by law to be between 21 and 27 years,
and the regulations require that lie
must be unmarried.
"The next examination of candidates
to determine their fitness ror
such appointment will bo held beginning
April 23, 1917, and should n candidate
desire an examination on that
date, he should submit liis application
therefor, furnishing this office with
information relative to his age, mar
ital condition and educational attainments.
