THE TRIANGLE SECRETARY Up t<> tile front-line trenches, Where the brunt of the fighting falls And back to the last cantonment When the summoning bugle calls • Wherever there .' need of a brother To' carry the fighting tune. In the war of men and angels •Go the men of the Great Triune. To war with the darkling powers, ’S. Courageous and clean they go. They carry no arms in tile battle; But the things that count they know. They know when a w'qrd is in season, When a friendly hand is’a boon; To serve and be glad jn the serving Is the creed of the Great Triune. On the sands of the blazing desert. On the pass of relentless sno'ws, Wheretver in quest of freedom The trail of humanity goes There's never a post too lonely, There’s never a time too soon Nor ever a task too daunting For the heart of the Great Triune. In the name of the Master of Manhood, Who taught that man is divine, Spirit and mind and body, They hold the supporting line. Till the world that sits in darkness Shall walk in the light of noon. They will wear the triple chevrons Defending their faith triune. Faith in their far off vision. The truth of the'mystic plan. Where love and reason and valor Meet in the perfect man. On the road of the marching sorrows. Through the wake of a waning moon. Come up with the suns of morning The men of the Great Triune. —Bliss Carman, in Association Men. THANKSGIVING GREETING!

REHABILITATION OF OUR WOUNDED The United States Government i resolved to do its best to restore e\ ery wounded American soldier and sailor to health, strength and self supporting activity. Until his discharge from the hos pital all the medical and surgical treatment necessary to restore him tn health is under the jurisdiction of the military or naval authorities, accord ing to the branch of the service he is in. The vocational w.lining, the re education and rehabilitation necc sary to restore him to self-supporting activity, is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Hoard of Vocational F.ducation. , If he needs an artificial limb or me chanical appliance the Government will supply it free, will keep it in re pair. and renew it when necessary, if after hi- discharge he again needs medical treatment on account of his disability, the Government will supply it free. While he is in the hospital and while in training afterwards the soldier or sailor will receive compen sation as if in service and his family or dependents will receive their allot ment. A wounded soldier or sailor, al though his disability does not prevent him from returning to employment without training, can take a course of vocational tarining free of cost and the compensation provided by the war risk insurance act will be paid to him and the training will be free, but no allotment will be paid to hi- family.

BREED BETTER HORSES, SPECIALISTS ADVISE According to reports received by the United States Department of Agri culture. the situation in the horse breeding industry reveals the fact that there are many nondescript and plug horses glutting the markets. This condition, it is believed, Effects the horse industry in general. The real good -animals are still commanding satisfactory prices, but the misfits tire being sold for .considerably less than the cost of production. The saving of additional fee 1 hills i- said to be the motive which prompts the pro ducer to dispose of this cla-- of horses, regardless of price. One of the conclusions which the Department of Agriculture draws' from the pres ent situation is that indiscriminate breeding of hor-es is an unprofitable enterprise. It is essential, the depart ment specialists add. that farmers use wise discrimination in selecting the proper type of stallions with which to mate their best mares and thus ma terially aid in producing only efficient horses which are capable of giving the service required of them and which consume less valuable teed for the amount of work performed. Such horses have a ready market and al ways bring good price-. It is imper ative that the breeder who proposes to compete with the domestic and for eign demands after the war should begin now to stock up his -tables with desirable better-bred horses. ■ "' ' - ADVANTAGE OF MOTOR TRUCKS SHOWN IN FARMING REPORTS Motor truck hauls in 1918 from farm to shipping point averaged 11.3 miles, while wagon hauls average 9 miles: and a motor truck made 3.4 round trips per day over its longer route of 11.3 miles, while wagons made 1.2 round trips per day over the 9-mile distance. The estimated cdst for hauling in wagons from farm to shipping point a'crage in 1918 about 3<) cents a ton a mile for wheat, 33 cdnts for corn, and 48 cents for cotton: for hauling in motor trucks or by tractors the av erages are 15 cents for wheat or corn and 18 cents a ton-mile for cotton. These figures are based on reports made by correspondents of the Bu reau of Crop Estimates of the United Department of Agriculture. Motor Cost Declines A similar inquiry ity 19;»6 showed an average for wagons of 19 cents per ton-mile for hauling wheat and 27 cents for cotton. Jn 1918 wagon co-ts were naturally higher, since prices and wages have increased, hut motor truck casts were much lower in 1918 than even the wagon costs of 19,'6. due to greater efficiency <>f the motor truck. I he co-t of wagon hauling a ton mile for wheat among the geographi divisions in 1918 was lowest in the Pa cific states. 22 cents. Above this, in order, are the North Central States of the Mississippi River, with 26 cents: the West North Central State 29 cents: the West South Central States. 32 cents: the East South Cen tral States. 36 cents: New England atiH the Middle Atlantic States, 38 cents: the south Atlantic States. 39 cents: and. highest of all. the Rocky Mountain State* with 42 cents a ton mile. In motor-truck hauling the order of the different divisions of the country begins with 9 cents a ton-mile for wheat in 1918 in the East North Cen tral, 10 cents in the East South Con- j tral. 14 cents m New England, the Middle Atlantic, and the West North 1 Central, 15 cents in the West South Central, 17 centsgin the Pacific 18 cents in the South \tlantic, and 2<> cents m the Rocky Mountain States Trailers Often Used rile motor trucks generally in use farmers are not large trucks, but small ones' whose.nominal capacity is usually one to two tons. In quite a number of counties throughout the country the trucks used for hauling are made-over pa senger cars In some cases light wagons are attached as tra'*ers to ordinary passirl^er car> and produce is taken to market in that way. In North Dakota and Califor nia. as well as other States, tractors each drawing several wagons are used especially m the West, with horse drawn wagons. For the United States as a whole the average wagon load of wheat wa 55 bushels in 1906 and 56 bu-heK in 1918. and the motor-truck load in the later years was 84 bushels. E„r , or, the wagon loads of 1906 and 1918 were 3U. ‘‘",l ,lu> ,noto!--truck load of 1918 was 58 bushels.
