A pushing, scrambling, heaving mass of women, to the stranger unique even in a city of I strange scenes and customs. Scores of them, from the old gray-haired black mammy of "befor d' war" days to the young white girl in her teens with evi dences of poverty in her bearing and attire. Many have broods of children! around them, others carry babies in their arms. Color runs riot, the ban danna kerchiefs of the negroes and the vari-colored -clothing of all combining to surpass the imagination. It is the usual Saturday morning dis tribution of five cent, pieces to the poverty stricken, a custom begun in New Orleans many years ago by a tery company, the old residents 'Ot- say, and still observed weekly as a neces sary rite by at least two of the largest business concerns in the city. In the halcyon days, says fradition, the lot tery gave to all comers coins at certain times and on holidays, cheered the hearts of those in financial straits by Every woman In the county, whether a member of the War Work Commit tee or not, is urged to be present at the meeting, for Mrs. Fuller , and other members of the committee have a mes sage which, they will deliver, which will be of interest to every woman who wishes to serve her country. The members of the Escambia Coun ty Woman's War Work Committee, or ganized only a few weeks ago, are al ready doing splendid work for the coun ty. Their Interest In the War Savings campaign and their work In connection with the canning centre here have al ready demonstrated their patriotism in no uncertain terms, and all are urged to be present on Tuesday afternoon to hear the message has to deliver. . .which Mrs. Fuller doubling the amount. "It Is Just one of our bobbles." de clared the head of one of the concerns when asked why the firm observed the custom. "We have done it for years and are going to keep it up. And this' in spite of the fact that we belong to the Charity Organization Society, which discourages Individual giving." Chaos usually precedes the distribu tion of the "Jitneys" as the negroes eall the coins. The money is given away at 8 a. m. but an hour earlier a crowd already is on hand. By 7:30 o'clock the numter has Increased and when a small window Is thrown open the street is a mass of struggling hu manity. The appearance of the cash ier electrifies the crowd. With shouts hands are held in the air,, the mass surges forward, each woman Intent on being among the first to receive her coin. As each is supplied she leaves the crowd, to make her way to one of the many public markets where she usually purchases "seconds' of various vegetables from the produce dealers. then goes home to prepare dinner. The doling out of coins finally Is con cluded, the window slams down, for the sum to be distributed has become exhausted. Many are disappointed but there is the consolation of looking for ward to the coming Saturday. They resolve to be on hand earlier next week. "" Pathos and disappointment were written plainly on the face of an old negro mammy one recent Saturday as she hobbled down the 6treet, assisted by a battered crutch and a cane.' a nroKer wno naa been watching, ac costed her: "What's the matter, Mammy? Were you left out?" "Yessuh, yessuh. I reckon I ain' young ez I uster be." she replied bomehow all dem younger omans Jes beats me to it. An' I needed dat money to buy sumpln to eat wid, too." And she resumed her Journey. "Just a minute," called the broker. "Maybe this will make up for it. "He took a dollar bill from his pocket. "Thanky ,suh ; God bless you honey,' she said. And as. she showered her thanks and blessings upon him he waited into his office. MAKES GLEAH THE STATE SMPMD SeniTor Fletcher recently the matter of making: clear ested parties the status of took up to inter- shlpyard workers In the draft, and has received a ciear ana concise statement from Provost Marshal Crowder, which has such a local bearing and Interest that ii is reproduced herewith, for the Denent or all concerned. . The letter follows: Gen. Crowder's Letter. Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher. United States Senate. My Dear Senator Fletcher: Receipt Is acknowledged of your let ter of June 6, 1918, relative to the classification under the selective ser vice law and regulations of men em ployed in shipyards. Employment In a shipyard does not entitle a registrant to deferred classi fication as such. Under the regula tions the district board is given exclu sive original Jurisdiction of all claims for deferred classification on Indus trial grounds, and its action is final with respect to such claims, subject to appeal to the president under Sec tion 111 of the regulations. The dis trict board may grant a registrant so engaged deferred classification on in dustrial grounds if In its opinion It considers the industry in which he i employed a necessary industry and the registrant himself necessary thereto within the meaning of Sections 80 to Pensacola Library Association 200 and 202 Blount Bids.

In addition to-the foregoing provis ions of the selective service regula tions. Sections 152 to 155 1-2. provide a special list called the "Emergency Fleet Classification List," upon which registrants employed by companies en gaged in the building or fitting of ships under the supervision of the navy department or Emergency Fleet Corporation are placed when requests are presented to the local boards properly made out and signed by the officials designated in Section 153. This special listing Is equivalent to deferred classification in Class V so lonsr and only so long as the registrant remains employed in this work. Imedlately uponm leaving such employment a registrant becomes subject to the regulations and will be Inducted into the military service in accordance with his class and order number as pre viously determined. It is not thought that either the navy department or the Emergency Fleet Corporation would request to have a pay clerk or any similar employe put upon the Emer gency Fleet Classification List. Such request would not be approved by this office. (Signed) E. H. CROWIDER. Provost Marshal General. USEFUL TOAOES TO BE TAUGHT Id Brighton, England, June 15. Sol diers who have lost a leg but- whose hands and sight are perfect are learn ing diamond cutting and polishing in this Atlantic City of England. They are employed almost exclusively in an Industry new to England and expect before the war is over to compete on a favorable basis with the more highly skilled diamond cutters of Amsterdam and Antwerp, where in pre-war days there was a monopoly of the business. Two large, modern four-story buildings are being put up which when com pleted will employ 1,800 discharged soldiers. Only ex-soldiers with unimpaired eyesight and perfect control of their fingers are taken because everything depends on a man's accuracy of vision and control of his hands. Even with these qualities It takes a man a life time to learn the trade. First the men pass through a train ing school. When a man is first ad mltted he is put to work on marbles such as he played with when a boy. He cuts up and polishes the marbles as he will later do with the real stones. The marbles are first sawn in half, and then grround into shape on a steel disc. This serves to give him some idea of the finished shape of the real diamond, but it is impossible to get the face even approximately correct, owing to the softness of the marble. Instead of cutting the 68 facets or surfaces found on the finished bril liant, the men cut six planes on the marble, and afterward grind the base roughly into the shape of the collet or neck. When a man does this skill fully he is given a small diamond to cut. and it is a great day In a man's training when this stage arrives. The feeling that he has a Btone worth from $100 to $250 in his possession to cut and polish gives him a sense of re sponsibility. While undergoing training the men receive no wages, but they receive a government allowance of about $7 a week. After they have advanced far enough to b entrusted with a dia mond they are put on a wage basis of from $10 to $20 a week, depending on their ability. Their training usual ly occupies a period of from three to six months. CORN GOING UP. rainAfin June 15. Corn ascended rapidly today on reports of hot winds J in the west.

Washington, D. C June 15w Sena tor Park Trammell of Florida has taken up with the Director General of Railways the question of modify ing the recent rate Increases applicable to fruits and vegetables shipped from Florida, "The truck growers of Florida are dependent largely on reasonable freight rates and prompt car service," said Senator Trammell today, "and if these are not secured the risks as sumed in truck growing are too great to invite the truck farmers to attempt maximum production. Senator Trammell said he had brought these facts to the attention o the railway administration several times in reference to prompt car ser vice and that he now has up with Mr. McAdoo's office the matter of freight rates 'and the advisability of modify ing the recently authorised increases In rates, particularly as they apply to Florida products.
