C.—The act which provides for Government life insur ance for soldiers and sailors has now been in operation a little more than a month. The Secretary of the Treasury announced on November 17th that up to that date 64,168 ap plications under the new law had been received, representing insurance in the sum of $552,093,000. From four to six thousand applications are re ceived each day at the Treasury De partment, the amount of insurance ap plied for sometimes reaching a total of fifty million dollars in a single day. The^ law provides that soldiers, sail ors, marines and nurses in active ser vice may obtain from the Government life insurance in amounts not exceed ing $10,000 at premium rates rang ing from 65 cents a month at the age of 21 years to $1.20 a month at the age of 51 years, for each $1,000 of insurance. One of the primary objects of this law is to lessen the tremendous bur den of pensions which has followed as a consequence of all American wars. It is evident that the administra tion of this new branch of Govern ment work is big business in itself. But this is only one of many govern mental activities incident to the war which are adding great numbers of clerks, stenographers, and other ser vants to Uncle Sam's payroll. Liter ally thousands of stenographers and typewriters have been appointed in Washington during the past few months and thousands more are to be appointed as soon as they are avail able.

These STATE OFFICER CLEARED BY JURY Bismarck, N. D., Dec. 25.—Thomas Hall, secretary of state, was presented the most wonderful Christmas gift in all North Dakota at 12:25 o'clock this morning, when a Burleigh coun ty district court jury after deliber ating just ten minutes, found him not guilty of embezzling from the state $3,400 of the automobile regis tration funds.

You know at once whether the style and gen eral appearance please you. GREETINGS This year brings to most of us our first "War Holidays". hour to await a verdict. Argument Closed at Midnight Closing arguments in the Hall trial were finished at 12 o'clock, just as the bells of St. Mary's cathedral were tolling for the midnight Christmas mass. Each side had been allotted three hours. For the defense W. H. Stutsman, of Mandr.ti, former chairman of ther te railway commission, and George V. Thorj-e. of Jamestown, divided he time allotted, while Daniel V. n nan, assistant attorney general n sumed all of the time given to the state. Judge James A. Coffey an nounced in the afternoon when both sides rested that he would charge Lhe jury Christmas morning.
