Many lot the merchants thought it necessary to snut off the lights altogether and some of them were trying to keep the store open wLile entirely dark from five to six. This was not the intent of the order and the voluntary closing of the Sanford stores on the Dart of the local merchants merely means that at six all the stores close but until six they can use the lights. "Mayor Davison wrote to Fuel Administrator Williams and receiven the. following reply: "February 1st, 1918. "Hon. J. D. Davinson, Mayor of San ford, Sanford, Florida: "Dear Sir: I am in receipt of yours of the 3 1st. I enclose you here - wnn pnnteii copy of the fuel order cf the 17th and also memorandum relating, to moving picture shows, theaters, etc You will see from this order that all businesses excent those exempted are prohibited from having heat on Mondays. There is nothing in relation to light. I have construed this order to permit those businesses to operate so long as they do not use any heat on Mondays. There is nothing in the order in regard to light on Mondays. The lightless nights are Thursdays and Sunday nights. On these nights stores are permitted to nave the usual in side lights as long as they are open for business. They are not, however, permitted to burn any outside lights; and electric signs are not permitted to burn on these nights; and when the stores are closed only such lights are permitted inside as to insure the saiety, i. e., to make the interior suf ficiently light for the police officer or watchman to see the interior. "Yours very truly, 1 "ARTHUR T. WILLIAMS, "Florida Fuel Administrator." ar ranged to furnish all papers of the State the detailed rulings for publi cation during the week of Feb. 3. These will give in detail just what is expected of the wholesale and retail grocers of Florida. I wish to adviso all retail grocers that in event they are not explicitly informed on the new rulings that they should get in touch with their jobbers or whole salers, who, through their salesmen, will give all information regarding these matters. "One question that has arisen and haf. called for much correspondence is that relating to retail sales to farmers. I wish to say that all farm ers who have grown their own cereal substitutes such as are mentioned in the original order may, upon submis sion of evidence that they have grown these substitutes, giving such evidence in writing, will be entitled to purchase flour from the Mailer in the quantities set forth in the or dei. This interpretation applies only to the farmer or producer, and in no case should retail grocers sell to such farmer any quantity .of flour in ex cess of the rule laid down, which re stricts sales to rural consumers to one-quarter to one-half barrel. "All retailers are urged to closely watch the papers of their respective counties or communities during thl week for a full interpretation of the rulings."

Ah, the changes wrought by th widely-known whirligig of time! Back more semesters than we would care to say when we were just a wee slip of a lad, there was no such thing as a balloon school. We used to see balloons at the county fair, but nei ther they nor the spangled bedight persons who went up in them knew much about schools. When every thing was ready and the red-faced yokels who had volunteered to hold the guy ropes were told to turn loose, the balloon went scooting up I . .1 -1 ! . . . I - I . auu suuiyiiuuieu arvuuu in me kits cumambient hither and thither, to say nothing of von, seemingly wher ever it darn well pleased. The beau tiful gentleman who skint the cat on the trapeze as it soared upward just let her go Gallagher. He had to. There was nothing else he could do. Before the day of parachutes all he could do was hang on and let her ride. Then, when parachutes were invented, he'd cut loose when he got ready and come sailing down on his own hook. We figure that In all we fcftve run something like three hun dred and seventy-odd miles to see where these -intrepid gents landed. Mostly they'd be gone before we got there, but there was some satisfac tion in locating the exact spot wher one hit the ground and looking at that. We don't know why, but there was. And once, we remember, a par achute failed to open and we stood around and watched the crowd pry the unfortunate aeronaut up out of the ploughed ground with fence rails. That kept us awake something like a month on a stretch, or, anyway, it seemed that long, because every time we'd close our eyes we'd see it all over again. vAnd we didn't exactly enjoy it. But now or so they tell us these bright alert young chaps In the school here can take a balloon ai big as the Grand building, or, as a feller says, all git out, and make it lie down and roll over and sit up and beg and jump through, and stay up or come flown, ust as they like. Which, after due reflection, we would parents? No, thank God MEN ON THE WESTERN FRONT Col. Itepington, formerly of the Lon don Times and now classed as a mil itary expert, says the entente nations have fewer than two million men on the western front and that the Ger mans will not have more than two and a half million when their mobllza tion on that front now in progress is completed. This suggests that in ad dition to the expression "somewhere in France" we will have to begin 'say ing "somebody in France." The num bers engaged will be as hazy as the location of the American contingent. It is probable that the number of men called into the war has been .overstated but if it hasn't been vast ly overstated Col. llepington's figures must be far from correct. Recently we have seen it stated that the French alone had two million men on the western front and while the num ber of the British has not been given it was generally supposed that they had more men than the French on the front. Only recently it was stated that Great Britain had raised seven million men. If so where are they? We have not seen an estimate of the total losses covering more than the first two years of the war. At that time France was the only nation engaged in the contest that had lost more men than could be replaced by those becoming subject to military duty after the war began. About two thirds of a million Germans, a half million Austrians, six hundred thou sands British, one and three-quarter million Russians, four hundred thou sand French and a third of a million Italians come of fighting age each year. This would mean for the three years two million Germans, eighteen hundred thousand British, fifteen hundred thousand Austrians, twelve hundred thousand French and a rail lion Italians have come of fighting age since the war started. Except in the case of France these were more than sufficient to make up for the losses In killed and prisoners and the fatally wounded. It may be that the older men, pass ing military age since the war began, have been mustered out, but even if this is true their numbers would not be half aa great as that of the young er men mustered in and it would not mean a net loss of more than ten per cent from the fighting strength of the average nation. We think Col. Replngton's may well be multiplied by two for the sake of a nearer approach to accuracy. Cer tainly the belligerent nations can put more men on the western front than the numbers stated Jacksonville Times-Union.
