the acting county superintendents of s
schools, received a letter from Homer f
C. Toothman. He states that certain
clothing has been issued to the boys r
at Camp Lee and that carpenters were t
getting ready to saw pipe holes in the p
barracks so that stoves could be plac- t

sand and that there is no end to
that. At present he is attending the t
range finders school, having passed i

Normal School Lecture
Course Will be Opened
This Evening.
The Normal school lecture course
will be opened to the public this evening
at the Grand opera house when Dr.
Lincoln Wirt, F. R. G. S., a war correspondent
and publicist of national
prominence will deliver an address.
Dr. Wirt has chosen as his subject:
'In the Wake of the War." In his lecture
he tells of his adventures as a
war correspondent while on the battlefields
of Europe; and of the day the
Lusitania was sunk not far from a ship
in which he was sailing. He has seen
sngagements in which trenches, reioubts,
barb-wire entanglements, ma:hine
guns, shrapnel bombs, band
jrenades, mines, liquid fire, and asphyxiating
gases were used.
Dr. Wirt was in London when Zeppelin
raids were made upon the city,
fimong the lines of trenches that he
rtsited while abroad were those neari
i'pres, and tragic "Hill Sixty."
