YOUELL, Auctioneer. Our Army In France, Tba number of tr. o; which can be sent to France will be limited more by tommiS? than by resources in men. The offi.'in' Kite of the government on sm, ..j.mons uo.v under way is 9.200 O X) tons to be complete ! by tbe end of 1918, and toe war department estimates 10 to 15 tous per soldier is required. These estimates if orrect indi cue that our forcei in the European war zone by te end of 1918 will not exceed a million men. Lord Northcliffe in a recent state ment has warned the country that no assistance can be given by British shipping, as all the tonnage of the allies will be required fir tbe main tenance of their armies. Tbe forces now enlisted are more than a million men, and while it will be necessary to bave under training troops to fill vacancies, it will give ample itime to proceed with the work, to have them th roughly pre pared. When the soldiers of 1918 reach tbe trenches they will be seasoned veterans. In the meantime ship-building will be-more extensively organized and by year after next a million and a half or two million men may be on the battle Una .

A Word From Pershing, j Gen Pershing's request thnt troops shall be trained in this country until they are well seasoned and proficient in the us? of the rifle is probably the last word in the old nmtroversv as to whether troops shall be sent to France early or only after they are about ready to fight. Tbe sentimental reason for semi ing an early contingent to France has been met There are now many Americans in France, and the French can see for themselves, by the magnitude of the preparatory work going on in France, that the country is going into4ne war on a big scale. .. That matter being out of tbe way, common sense dictates that the atrnies shall receive as much train ing as possible here, where they are close to their supplies and making no demand upon any resources that might be useful to the fighting men in France Married.
