You and our little friends who ar already working so efficiently for the Postal Telegraph Company are perhaps the first in Pensacola to step into the places of some of the boys, and hold Jobs which have been looked upon until now as the birthright of those boys, but you will not be the least, unless the war in Europe comes to a sudden close. For the past couple of years all such posts In the European countries have been filled by girls, and it is said that they are very well filled indeed. Girls over there run elevators like you are doing, and they also run street cars. which you may possibly do later on even in Pensacola, while there is a bare possibility that in some of the ship yards which are being started in the vicinity part of the labor will also bo done by girls, just as it is in the larg est shipyards in the world. In the yards of Harland A Wolfe in Belfast, where tmch monster ships as the Olympic and the Titanic are built, it is , said that a large portion of the work Is now being done by girls, and none of them knew any more about manual labor when the war broke out than the average girl in Pensacola does to-day. Running an elevator in a hotel may be only the thin edge of the wedge, but everybody admires you for having the pluck to Insert it. Just the same as they admire your trim little jackets and caps, and they wish you all the luck In the world in your new work. MR. RAWLINS BACK IN PENSACOLA.

'To save the wool" is the answer to all our Ques tioning as to why so much silk is used in our new cloth coats. The wool is necessary for the clothing of armies, and women folk who have worn silk from choice so long: may now continue to ear silk as a pa triotic obligation. The lightweight topcoat is an im portant part of most spring1 ward robes and the pictured model shows a full length coat of dark bluer, with collar, cuffs, and broad embroidered band about the waist of satin in the same shades. A fetching little "knock-about'' hat or rough braided straw with tiny silk and braid flow ers adds much to the air of the whole costume. - .0 '?1 -yyyUMC-: :..-s. : ' ' - ; If-) . J - i :-".w.'.v.-. Kudzu Greatest Forage Crop, Declares Local Authority By J. C Petterson Sometime ago I . wrote an . article on the greatest ' forage crop in the world the kudzu. I have had sev eral inquiries from farmers about the kudzu and if you will kindly publish a few facts it will give the readers of your valuable paper information that cannot be had in any other way. The first year after this the kudzu cowpea or velvet bean, and is also a perennial. It is planted from the roots as it neither blooms or seeds in field culture. It never needs re planting, it is a self-fertilizer, and a soil builder. At the first planting, it requires a good soil but after this it requires no fertilizer or cultiva tion from the planting of the first year. It is possible from or.Jp acre to plant out five acres the second and third year, it grows on the- ground like the strawberry vine, and taken root at every joint. The root is about three inches" in diameter, the crown part, the prongs from three to five" prongs to every plant, from ten to thirteen inches long. It takes about one thousand plants to the acre. The plants are placed about seven feet apart and corn or cotton in between so as to keep out tho grass. The kudzu is a legume like the will cover the entire ground and erad icate" all obnoxious grasses, such as nut grass . or Johnson grass. Tne stem grows up straight like the vel vet bean, the leaf resembles the vel vet bean. It grows from three to five feet, is cut like any other hay. is easily cured, and is not spoiled by a shower of rain. Unlike ther hay SPALDING COUNTY, GEORGIA, FARMER NOW GIVES FACTS Says He Was Relieved of Severe At tack of Rheumatism After Taking Tanlac When All Else Failed. "I am the happiest man in Spald ing county," decla-cd J. T. Waldrap, a prominent farmer living near Grif fin, Ga., "for Tanlac has made a well man of me and I can now make as good crop as any man. "For four -years I suffered torture with what some sr.it was inflamma tory rheumatism, vhicli3ver it was, the pain was such as to drive mo al most desperate. Sometimes I would get sick at the stomach and have hijh fever and headaches and vomit up everything I Lad eaten. I would have hetrtburn that wr.s like a rag ing fire in my. stomacL. "I tried everytnins i coma trunK of but nothing seemed to do me anj good until I began taking Tanlac. It Vk L Oi bgan to enjoy my meals and have a heartier appetite. My raeuraatism began to disappear and in a f aw weeks I didn't have an ache or a pain in ray body and found I had actually gained fifteen pounds in weight. Tanlac has been such a Godsend to me 111 never get done praising it." Tanlac is sold- in Pensacola ex clusively by the Crystal Pharmacy, adv. SCORES SHOCKED ON LEARNING NEWS OF A. MOOG'SDEATH Scores of friends of the late Al fred Moog were shocked early yes terday morning when they learned that Mr. Moog had passed away about midnight, following an attack or apoplexy, .-and during the day many went to the saddened home and offered'their sincere condolences.

K. r R.. 1366 LARGE AUDIENCE AT FT. A very large audience enjoyed the excellent program last f.ight at Fort Barrancas, given by the music and dramatic committee, of the army and navy life activities committee. Mrs. John Sandusky and Miss Lil lian McDonald sang very beautifully. Their selections were: "Spring Song," "Mighty Lak' a Rose," "Carissima," and "Joan of Arc," all being heartily received, with many encores, as did Miss Lillie Jacob's splendid violin solos. Accompanists were: Mrs. it never loses its foliage, it cuts from four to five times a year, and is a green growing plant until a heavy fro3t or freeze Being a perennial it comes up of itself, and will grow on any land that is too poor, or rocky to yield other profitable crops. It is not injurious to stock as is the case with alfalfa and other leTimes. All stock eats kudzu, and "will leave corn in preference to it. In Escam bia county, it is possible to cut eight to ten tons to the acre and in the peninsula, will yield from twelve to fourteen tons to the acre. The Florida Commission in July, 1916, gave their statement and analy sis, tcking corn as a standard value for feed. Corn analysis show pro tein 10 per cent, sugar and starch 58 and 15.6 per cent, and fat 5.16 per cent of the feeding at a cost of $21-25 per ton. . Kudzu analyses show 17.12 per cent protein, S8.42 per cent sugar and starch 15.8 per cent, val ued at $19.75 per ton. The hay is valued by them at from twenty to thirty dollars per ton. There are many forage plants and legumes such as cowpeas, velvet beans, the al falfa pro gras3, Rhodes grass, Les pedeza grass and others. But rjl of them have to be replanted and fertil ized. Another very important fact is that the kudzu will stand any dry weather that we have The roots penetrate deeper and it is a self fertilizer. It takes in the nitrogen from the air. The roots carry with them the tubercules that are needed to inoculate the soil. The roots draw the potash and phosphoric acid from the subsoil while the leaves draw all the nitrogen needed by the plant from the air. In this way the sou becomes richer every year in stead of exhausted as from growing grasses for hay. The writer has no axe to grind. I don't own any kudzu. l have none for sale but I will be glad to give information to anyone how to get the plant and also I will see that you get them with full instructions how to plant. The only object I have is to see that every farmer or stock raiser in my beloved state and especially m Escambia county, will raise and cultivate the greatest forage in the world and in stead of buying from the North and West one million six hundred dollars worth of hay and two and one-half million dollars worth of v beef and pork, that we can export more than this in place of importing it. You need never be afraid that the kudzu will ever be a disappointment, be cause when you wish to get rid of it all you have to do is to cut the crown with a disc plow and it is dead- RETURN MATCH AT 30WLING TONIGHT A return match game will be pulled off tonight at the Business Men's Athletic Club, on Weat Koraana street, when Van Metre and Lurton will oppose Cash and Tubbs.
