He says : "I wish you could have seen the efficiency of the treatment demonstrated as completely as I id recently. This is my own, first hand, eye witness in- i formation. r , ' "It was recently discovered at a certain camp, n account of an unavoidable circumstance (una j: jt-oidable until it was discovered) that 5,000 men ii vere drinking water bad enough to kill a rattle- inake and had been doing so for some time, with 3 o cases of typhoid because they were all vacci i iated against it; but along comes a civilian em- loye who hadn't been vaccinated within five ears for typhoid and although he. was probably he physical equal of any man in camp, he took !i t so badly .that he didn't last ten days after tak- T fig sick. The bugs were in the water alright in t millions; they all drank it; in 5,000 men one got 1 ! aught and he was'n't protected by vaccination rii retty clear case, eh ?" a- : fr t jp THE HOME FRONT. ijj The battle front in Europe is not the only American front. There is a home front, and our A eople at home should be as patriotic as our men i i uniform in foreign lands. n: Every American soldier who has fall- in I ranee, every American sailor who has died for is country's cause has given his life for his c eople. Surely we, their people, can lend our loney ' to our nation, their country. Vj The Fourth Liberty Loan is the fighting Joan. M s great success will bring comfort and pride to (jir Army ana our iNiavy, and to our allies; it ill bring discouragement to our enemies. Its 1 iccess means American victory, Prussian de :at. - WORLD'S RECORD The shipyards of America established a new ." t. - - ' record for ship production for the twelve months just ended. From September 27, 1917, to Sept ember 26, 1918 the United States placed in ser vice 1,956,455 gross tons of shipping. The pre vious world's record was held by British ship yards, which in 1913, the greatest year in British shipbuilding, turned out 1,932,153 gross tons. Expressed in deadweight tonnage, the figure used by the Shipping Board, American produc tion was nearly 3,000,000 tons. The twelve months just ended are first in which American production for a year has exceeded the record of British yards. Before 1918 all shipbuilding re cords were held by the British. . The figures made public are those of the Bureau of Navigation of theDepartment of Com merce and not those of the Shipping Board. For this reason they include all tonnage of 100 gross or more, placing them on a parity withhe British figures, which are always expressed in gross tonnage. ; Commissioner of Navigation Chamberlain has sent this message to Chairman Hurley of the Shipping Board. We have gone over the top in shipbuilding. ,, In the twelve months just ended. American shipyards have built and the Com merce Department, Bureau of Navigation, has officially numbered 1,956,455 gross tons, passing the previous high record of the United Kingdom for 1913 calendar year, 1,932,153 gross "tons launched, of which 1,793,287 gross tons com pleted. British construction for the present year is behind that of the American yards. The latest British figures available are up to August 31. They show for the eleven months ended on that date construction of 1,512,640 gross tons. Pro duction for September will hardly be sufficient to tring the year's total near that of the United States. . The British tonnage for theseven months and the American for twelve aggregate 3,469,095 gross tons completed, exceeding theNrld's rec ord production for. all nations of 3,332382 made in 1913. p ;, 'j ;;.'.-''? ' The figures for the twelve months makeMt clear that the United States will greatly exceed parly estimates of production by experts, who de clared that this country would not turn out '3, p00,000 deadweight tons in 1918. With an entire quarter yet remaining the production is likely to $ qual 4,000,000 deadweight tons of ships deliver ed and in service. , .-v There is at present a gap of more than 1,000, p00 deadweight tons between launchings and de liveries, due to delay in getting engines and boilers. STATE DEFENSE I U MOVE FOB MITOLESS FLORIDA SUMS Tallahassee, Oct. 2. The advisory committee of the State Council of Na tional Defense held its regular month ly meeting in the executive offices of the state capitol Monday. At this meeting there were present Governor Sidney J. Catts, chairman, presiding-; vice chairman, Judge J. B. Whitfield, Major A. B. Small,' of Lake City; Prof. W. B. Cate, of Madison; Hon. John W. Henderson, Hon. J. C. Lun ning, Tallahassee; Judge C. L. Wil son, of Marianna; Hon. J. C. Adkins, of Gainesville, field secretary; Mrs. Frank -JS. Jennings, chairman of the woman's committee, of the state coun cil, who represented the woman's work in Florida, and the executive secre tary. Hon. H. S. Howard. Among important matters taken up and discussed by the pommittee was the work of supervising non-war con structions within the state. The plans of the state council of defense looTTTIiK to the, merging of the woman's committee with the state council of defense was taken up upon advice from Washington and a, com mittee was appointed to confer with the newly organized field defense of the council of nation defense, in re gard to the matter. A recent order of the fuel adminis trator calling on the people of the state to forego the pleasure of "joy riding" on Sundays was discussed. Lt appeared from reports of the county chairmen that in some counties the request had not been obeyed. The state council supporting the request of the fuel administrator, passed the following resolution: Request Autoless Sundays. "Whereas, The national fuel admin istration has requested the people of the country to refrain from the use of automobiles of the county for pleasure riding on Sunday and the state council of defense being desirious of. aiding and assisting the national state fuel administration in the execution of this request; therefore: be it "Resolved, By the executive commit tee of the state council of defense that the county councils of defense and the community councils in the ' several counties of this state, actively, so far as it lies within their power, support the request of the fuel administrator in discouraging and preventing, as far as possible, the use of automobiles for pleasure purposes on Sunday, and that the members of the county coun cils and community councils be, and they are hereby requested to report to the local fuel administrator in their respective counties, any violation of this request on the part of any of the people in their respective communi ties, so that the names of those com mitting such " violations, if there are any, may be published In the news papers by the local fuel administration." REAL ESTATE THE PRUSSIAN HOPE. A great many times, in print and in talk, we have run aeross this idea: "Even though he beats the French Army and . the Italian Army, the Kaiser cannot bring England and the United States to terms unless he shatters their sea power. How, then, can h ehope to win ulti mately?" asks the Saturday Evening Post. It is an easy conundrum. He expects England and the United States to lie down. He hopes there is enough laziness and selfishness and cow ardice in them to give the game into his hands. He thinks they will get tired of fighting. He calculates they cannot stand the gaff. He banks on the chap who resents having his profits in terfered with, his pleasures interfered with, his easy ways of living interfered with, his diet regu late; on the big capitalist who forestalls as much as the law will let him; on the same cap italist who will not buy a Liberty bond when he can get eight per cent on mortgage; on the labor leader and wage-earner who will strikeeven against the government; on the farmer who would rather let his production fall off than payj high wages for help. He expects timidity and the slacker and the grafter and the sponge, in all their manifold varieties and manifestations, to get the upper hand and surrender. The Kaiser will be disappointed; but don't let anyone encourage him. P. . J. Huller and wife to W. H.

MINISTERS TO TALK ON CLEAN-UP TOPIC Following a meetiner of a Visrilanea committee which has een organized among the ministersof the city, pas tors of many Pensacola churches have agreed to preach sermons on condi tions in the city at next Sunday's ser vices. Some of the divines intimate that they have some interesting in formation gleaned by investigation and that the sermons may give some facts which will startle.

KULTUR I ' i i. ' 1 mm I M mm,m To Smash The Hun Buy Liberty Bonds ! Program For the Conservation Of Telephone Service Postmaster General Burleson's Bulletin Nof 4t dated August 15, 1918, directed all telephone companies, until other wise advised by him, among other things, as follows: "To confine extensions and betterments to imperatire and unavoidable work to meet war requirements and the vi tal commercial needs of the country. All companies should at once adopt such rules and regulations as may be necessary and proper to accomplish this result, because of the difficul ties, incident to war conditions, of securing adequate supplies, labor and transportation.". In compliance with this order, this company will undertake to provide service as promptly as conditions will permit for es sential war work and commercial needs which are vital to com munity welfare. Possession of government contracts, priority shippingprivi ileges, or a letter or other form of advice from the chief of a government departments certifying to the necessity for the es- tablishment of service, will be accepted as evidence of need for same. Telephones for drug stores, offices or residences of doctors? hospitals, public utilities and such other businesses as are essen tial to the community welfare will be considered as vital com: mercial needs. Initial stations or extension stations for business or resi dence service merely for the convenience of the subscriber, un less coming within the classification above defined, cannot be installed. '' . . No applications for service except those permitted under the order of the Postmaster General will be accepted. . In view of conditions brought about by the war, it is par ticularly desirable that telephone service be conserved in every way possible for use by the government and essential war in dustries and activities.- Your co-operation will be of great help to this company in complying with the order of the Postmaster General J.
