She had heard of the suffer ing of the men in the field hospitals all along the front; how the ennui of lying in bed all day waiting for the opportunity to return either to use ful private life or to the trenches, depressed the spirits of the men and she resolved that they ought to have music to cheer them up. One of the most practical forms of supplying mu sic, wholesale, is by the talking ma chine. She issued her appeals to the American public and response has been generous. So many people buy quantities of records, play them a short while and then put them aside that Miss Moulton suggests sending these to the wounded soldiers through the Vocation War Relief, at 58 West Thirty-ninth street, New York city. She has been aided in the work by many colleges and war relief socie ties. SOAP HIS CURE FOR GRIPPE Another South Norwalk Physician Says Use Sulphur in Shoes, Clothing and the Bed. South Norwalk, Conn. —The liberal use of soap is a sure preventive of grippe, states Dr. G. H. Nuxon, medi cal examiner of Darien. Dr. Jack W. Vollmer of South Nor walk, advises sulphur as a preventive, saying, “Put it in your shoes, in your bed and in your pockets.” He says there is so much grippe and pneumo nia here that nurses are at a pre mium. Many nurses are working night and day, but not more than two-thirds of the patients are getting professional care. The demand for pineapple, which is generally used here for the relief of throat disorder, has been such that the stores are entirely stripped and the dealers cannot supply the de mand.

Duluth. Minn. Trappers arriving here with wolf hides for bounty report that hundreds of northern Minnesota deer are being slaughtered by wolves The exceptionally deep snow and the alternate freezing and thawing have made a crust that will sustain the weight of the wolves, but the sharp hoofs of deer break through, and they fall an easy prey. The scarcity of rabbits, which have been wiped out, has made the deer the only food available for wolves, and even the small brush wolves have as sembled in packs and become brave enougn through hunger to attack young deer. MARINES-ARE THROWN OUT Insisted on Standing In Theater While “Star Spangled Banner” Is Played. Washington.—Because they insisted on standing up while the “Star Span gled Banner” was being played, and refused to sit down when ordered to do so by persons in the rear, two privates of the United States marine corps, in full uniform, were forcibly ejected from a local motion picture theater. A recent ruling by a justice of the district supreme court gives the man agement of a theater the right to eject patrons under similar circumstance, and no official protest by the marine corps authorities will result.
