SM ARMY IS WELL SUPPLIED If All Blankets for Troops** Were Brought Together They Would Cover 4000 Acres of Ground. Gigantic Task in Preparing Material to Keep Soldiers Warm — Feeding Five Times Number of Men in the Spanish War. Nearly 20 square miles of new army blankets have been ordei-vid by the quartermaster general since the Unit ed States declared war, the council of national defenso has Informed the state council of defense of Idaho. Some 4000 acres of them—5.990,236 blankets—had been delivered up to Dec. 1. If these blankets were evenly distributed, there would be enough to give three to every man in the army. 'Overcoats contracted for number 6,691.350. If half of the entire number of nx*n of draft age in the country should bo called to the colors, these contracts would supply thorn with an overcoat apiece. Deliveries of over coats amounted on Dec. 1 to 2,026,346. Included in the total are somo hun dreds of thousands of deliveries at army supply Stations, instead of at the camps and cantonments. Otherwise no man if any of the camps would have had to go without an overcoat during the unprecedentedly cold weather of last month. The army is particularly well sup plied with shoes, 21,117.6]2 pairs hafe been contracted for, and 8,525,298 pairs delivered. Every soldier can use up four pairs befoie the supply on hand Is exhausted. Three mllion, five hun ■ dron and fifty-four thousand and ninety-one hats have been delivered contracts calling for 8,092,021. Ä u. . o hundred and fi' ^ Thirty-five million, one hundred and fifty-five thousand and eighty-one yards of woolen cloth foixO. D. shirts has been contracted for. To call it 19,974 miles of cloth will perhaps give ft clearer idea of tho size of the order. Ten million, nine hundred am\ ninety, yards of this ma terial has been made up into 5,676,444 shirts. RUNS 'INTO BIG FIGURES. The contracts for woolen uniform cloth reach the somewhat smaller fig u>" of 28.956.958 yards. Eleven mil ■Ion. two hundred and nlnev-nine thou <and and eight hundred and slxty-sev en yards have been delivered and have bcen made into ->,378,511 complete winter uniforms and 455,856 extra pair of breeches. Ten million, eight hundred and forty-eight thousand, five hundred and three pieo-s of winter underwear have been delivered, out of 28,275,845 pieces contracted for. This would represent a greater stock of underwear if Unck Sam favored the union suit* As it i s , the supply is divided into 4.306,343 up per garments and 6.542.160 nether. Cither articles that have had to be supplied to tho camps in great quan tities are lied sacks, comforters, leg gins and socks. Of they four camps v isited by Surgeon General Gorgas, in his recent tour of inspection, none reported a shoitage of bod sacks. There were leggins enough to go h round, and the supply of light woolen socks was large enough to give each man three pairs. Gump Sevior re ported only two pairs of the light ad woolen weight socks per man, but bad in dit ion 20, socks. None of the camps reporting had quite enough comforters, Camp Fun ston, for instance, was short uj>oi$t 6000. Funston, however, had more than three blankets per man. FEEDING BIG TASK. The latest reports concerning sup plies are from Camp Sevier, down In Greenville, S. 0., wfc- re the national guardsmen from Tennessee and the Carolinas are training. Sevier reported plenty of overcoats on hand, but far from an adequate stock of woolen uni forms. Twenty-four thousand and two hundred and forty coats ordered shipped from New York on Nov. 13. had not yet reached Greenville at the end of the month. Placing the respon sibility aright for such situations as this was the purpose of the recent congressional investigation. In this war the quartermaster de HT SÖFFER WITH NEURALGIA Use Soothing Musterole When those sharp pains go shootin through your head, when your sku. seems as if it would split, just rub ; little Musterole on your temples an. neck.

PATTY Northern Pacific Railroad | tributor of Tanlac, at Kuhlnun-Cham Ex Passenger Agent for the Co. Discusses His Former Troubles. Nearly everybody, especially railroad people, knows Captulp F. S. Patty, for twelve years district passenger agent for the Northern Pacific railroad, with local offices In Chattanooga, Tenn. and general headquarters in St. Paul, Minn. On account of general failing health, Captain Patty was forced to discon tinue active work, and for the past few years has been miking his home in Knoxville, Tenn., where he numbers his friends by his acquaintances, lie is a kind, genial gentleman of the old school. The following interesting state ment was made by him in person to .Mr. G. F. Willis, international dis I bliss' recently: "1 am 69 yours old and always en joyed very good .health up to about six years ago, when I suffered a nervous breakdown and my general he.ilth gradually failed me. My principal trou ble was indigestion and catarrh, but my whole system seemed to bo out of shape. My condition finally got so bad I couldn't sleep at night, and always after eating I would suffer so from in digestion and heartburn that 1 fel* just like there was a coal of fire my stomach. My hearing and vision were also affected. "I consultc'd several .doctors here jhelped me considerably and I finally got Knoxville ami other cities and dhey ! so I could go around, but somehow 1 just couldn't feel right and could not sleep nt night, which made nje awfully nervous, and nothing I would eat seemed to agree with me. "I began reading about this Tanlac when you first came here, but did not decide to try the medicine until I talked with a friend of mine who had actually i used it. He said it was the best thing ! he had ever taken, aud that was suf | Sclent proof to me. "I have just finished the first bottle and came here this morning: not only to buy the second bottle, but to tell you just what it has done for me.

Keeping a million men for a year on the United States garrison rat means th- provision of 225.000 tons— 450,000,000 pounds—of fresh beef. This figure is reduced somewhat by the substitution of other fresh meats—as turkey and occasionally mutton or fish. Three hundred million pounds of flour must be supplied for tho bread ration, not including the flour m^ed in making bard lrcad. Other items of I food supply are 29.600,000 pounds of coffee, 25.000 tons of sugar and 366,000 gallons of cucumber pickles. Besides the articles of the regular ration, th*- quartermaster department keeps on hand 165 items of stock for sale at cost. Many of these items are things to eat. Others are shoe-black ing. writing paper, talcum powder— 148,800 cans—and a few bottles of toilet water. In addition to supplying food and »•quipment for the new armies, the quartermaster department—with the help, here as in other fields of its ac tivity, of the civilian experts of tM council of national defense— has had to build the cantonments. And the lengthening of supply lines by ti>3 movement of troops to France in creases its labor day by day.

Dr. E. A. Bryan, state commissioner of education favors a new building for the Eewiston state normal school to replace the old administration building which was burned down last month. He believes that not to exceed $150,000 should be spent for the pröposed new edifice. That amount, he suys, is suf ficient to give the normal a building adequate for its wants for some time to come. to cover losses on state educational buildings, he believes should be held in a separate .fund and intact from the general fund, so that it will be avail able for use when needed. "I have returned from a trip to Lewiston where I studied the building proposition the state board of educa tion has before it there," said Dr. Bryan. "I am convinced now that a new building should rise ih the place , Insurance money, received i . . , . 1 of the old one, nnd that the wing of | the administration building which Is ] being built under the legislative appro- 1 prlation should be Included as part of the new edifice. "It would be unwise in my opinion to attempt to patch up the ruined edi fice, and I am confident it would be a saving in the long run for the state to proceed with the erection of a build ing to cost not in excess of $150,000 which would meet the needs of the normal for some years to come. It does not seem to me it would he wise to spend more than that amount. A build ing sufficiently largo and attractive can be built for $150,000. In order to accomplish this, however, a legislative appropriation would be necessary to go with the insurance money received to cover the loss by fire to the admin istration building." In order to make possible the build ing of this edifice during the present year an appropriation would have to be secured from the legislature if called into extra session. Dr. Bryan did not visit the univer sity at Moscow as he intended, for lie was taken ill while at Lewiston and was "under the doctor's care for several days. The replacing of the burned struc ture at the Lewiston normal will be considered by the state board of edu cation when it meets Friday. limit, but claimed after each man in the party had one to his credit a c accidentally killed itself and they look I it in.

A Moroaco ploy without rich color ings and strong climaxes Is akin to reduced cost of living—there is no such thing. Therefore, a Morosco play is not dependable wholly on stars. "The Bird of Paradise," playing at the Pinney, opening to a packed house, does not reveal any luminary who stands out with notable distinction in the flrma ment of Thespitmlsm, but It does dis „ .. . . . . close a well-balanced and capable company that handles the situations, some of them difficult, in an entirely acceptable manner. "The Bird of Paradise" Is a' sermon from Hawaii. As a sermon on regen eration and degeneration, on the hope lessness of unrespected love, upon the devotion of Innocent adoration, on a variety of the lights and shadows of the human pussions, It could come from anywhere, but as a colorful scenic Production, as an exposition of tropical indolence and sentimentality and spooney moons and ukeleles it could come from only the island pearl of the Pacific. Paul Wilson, a young American doc tor, becomes enamored of Luana, a Ha waiian girl, and, marrying her, degen erates far below her level. He is on the road to restoration, although tot tering, when ambition impels him to reject her on a pretext. She returns to her people and becomes a h^man sacrifice, to meet the requirements of a native custom believed to ward off further disaster from volcancos, leap ing into a crater.
