GIRLS AND BOYS ORGANIZE CLUBS Are to be Taught Farming, Stock Raising for Future Good. Beys' and Girls' Club for farming and cattle raising, were organized Saturday at a meeting in Gcrdonville under the direction of Miss Mary Kochtitzky and County Farm Agent Seth Babcock of this city, who have been co-operating with the Extension Department of the College of Agri culture. The purpose of the new or ganization is to prcmote progress of raising cattle, growing farm products and teaching the members of the club economical methods in keeping house. Similar clubs have been organized throughout the country on the same principles. Last Monday a meeting was held at the Indian Creek School, Tuesday at tha Campster School, Wed nesday at Oak Rige, and Thursday at the Whiteriver School. The new movement has caused great enthusi asm mong the school children, who are taught conservation and home economics. Boys' and Girls' Clubs are organiz ed to carry on definite lines of practi cal work which are closely reiated to the farm and thehome. It aims to provide useful employment for the ooyv. rnd ,vi? -Iitiing the year and e:i eu're then Vj take part in the big prog.am cf food production and con servation. Beginning in January clubs are or ganized in the following lines: Gar dening, com growing, canning, sewing baking, pig feeding, poultry, calf and sheep raising. These are for spring and summer work. Others will be or ganized for fall and winter. When a spring and summer club is organize a leader should be elected to meet with the members at least once a month to study the plan of work with them, compare results, learn of any difficulties and report the same to the central office. A man 'r woman who is ii (-rested n io!n ing boys and girls can usually be rf '-ured as lender. Any number of boys and gills be tween the ages of ten and eighteen years inclusive may organize and do club work. The enrollment, giving the name, age and address of each member, the kind of club work to be done, the name and address of the local leader, should be sent to the Agricu' tttral Extension Service, Columbia. Missouri. Its costs nothing to belome a mem ber of a boys' and girls' club. Liter ature for carrying on the work is sent free to the local leader who distributes it to the club members. All clubs should arrange to take pail in a local county or state exhibit and contest.. This will give members an oppuitunity to eshibit their pro ducts and to take part in contests. DOING THE WORK.

NAVY'S TRAINING BASE IN IRELAND American Station on River Under Irish Cliffs. Nava!

This naval barracks, which some of the oHer men call h lock after a part of the New York navy y;:rd. was formally commissioned wilh the arriv al the oilier day from the United States of its commanding ollicer, a commander who came to the navy from Louisiana. He lias a staff of a lieu tenant, two ensigns, a paymaster ami several si!iy'oii s, who can take care f several thousand men. They are instriiciini: men still green to thing of the sea in methods of fighting the submarines. To the station, which covers live acres come the recruits from training stations in the United States. There are regulars, reserves and tate militia, but their identity as such is lost hero and they are ai! alike while the war lasts. House in Big Old Granary. These war time sailors are housed ;n a big old granary which was the home of n famous Irish regiment. When the Americans came along the soldiers cheerfully moved on. for the submarine still is regarded as the most dangerous enemy over here, and nun who come to fight it are wel comed. The granary is really four large buiiilins joined together. They are of rough stone, which makes the barracks :ppnr not unlike some American prisons. The walls are three feet thick, and there are four floors. The Americans have whitewashed the walls and made a wonderful trans formation in the place. The men sleep in hamniorks swung from the rafters i:i the ceiling. They eat- at bmg mess tables from enam eled dishes and get the same food a- those on the Atneiican ships, which is hard to beat nowadays in this par ticular part of the world. IJeveille is sounded at half-past five o'clock while outside it still is dark and cold. But these new war-time sailors rise without a murmur, dress, puck" their hammocks out of tlie way and march to breakfast below as if they had been born to it. All the cooking is done outside the barracks where 1 lie Americans have set up a few field kitchens. They also use trench stoves for cooking bean soup and stews. The adaptability of these men is what first impresses the visit or. Many have given up lives of com parative luxury and case to submit to naval discipline, which probably is less comfortable here than in tin United States. Kept in by Armed Guards. The station i shut in by a high wall upon which armed sentries are post ed. No liberty is permitted for visits In the village, which boasts l.'i saloons and a shipyard. The only time the Americans are seen in the village streets is when a company of them passes through from a cross-country hike, a part of their daily routine. The only liberty granted the recruit. is to ihe more pretentious village a few miles down the river which Is the base of the American destroyer lloiilla. A sea-going tugboat make one round trip 11 day with tlie liberty party. At the base village the recruits : re free to visit the United States Naval clubhouse, tlie British Y. M. C. A. hut or the two village movie shows. The liberty men leave the Iwirracks each afternoon at five; the curfew rings for them at 11 at night, when Miey board tlie tug for the return voy tgc. For those not on liberty taps is sounded at tlie usual hour of nine. The state of health of the men con tinues excellent, despite the raw, damp :limate peculiar to this part of Ire land and the sick bay does n .small business. New Knitting Record. Mrs. Snuiantha Masteii of I'leasant Valley. N. Y.. has established a war knitting record. In five months she lias knitted 20 sweaters. i!0 mufflers, and -0 pairs of wristlets, an average of an outfit a week. While knitting for the soldiers Mrs. Masten lias per formed her daily household duties and has taught other women how to knit. Thrift Stamps as Tips.
