FOR SALE JACK AND STALLION
Gen. Leonard Wood has inavr;"
rated a line of work at Camp Fun
ston which will be of far-reaching
value to the large force of men under
his command, as well as to the coun
try at large. In addition to their
army training, the Camp Funslon
men have educaticnal facilities such
is would he beyond the reach pf very
many of them elsewhere.
Py arrangement with the Kansas
tate Agricultural college, which is
it Manhattan, Kansas, only a few
miles from Camp Funston, instruc
tors from the college give frequent
lectures at the camp on all branches
if. agricultural work stock raising,
'and fertilization and so on, includ
ing agriculture in its broadest sense.
s most of the men under General
Wood's command are from the farm
ing population, this course of in-
t ruction should be invaluable to
fheni on their return to civil life. In
addition to that, the college has of
fered to take three hundred men in
he institution's work shops and lab
oratories and instruct them in a
?ourse of mechanical engineering.
General Wood has taken full advan
tage of this offer. There will be
barracks near the college. " ami as
many men as possible will be quar
'cred there and comfortably cared
for while receiving the instruction
iO generously offered.
At the camp itself instruction in
various lines of study is going on.
The mornings, weather permitting,
ire devoted to strictly military in
struction and army work, while the
nen generally have the rest of the
time to spend by improving themselv
es in general study. The illiterates,
of whom there is a not very large,
but by no means negligible percent
age, have full opportunity for in
struction in the elementary school
branches which, outside of the army,
many of them would feel more or
'ess humiliated in asking for and ac
cepting. This is putting the army, while we
are on a peace basis, to the very best
use that could be made of it. It is
making a sort of university, which is
not only creating American soldiers
and American soldiers are second
to none in the world but which is
also lifting to a higher level th.o
standards of American citizenship.
There is in all this a breadth of vis
ion and an intelligent patriotism
quite characteristic of General Wood.
It is worthy of him at his best, and
that is saying a great ileal. What
ever this admirable soldier's person
al feelings may be at the all but
feminine petty spitefulness to which
he has been subjected, he has uttr
ly sunk such feelings and has given
himself as whole heartcdly to the du-
doctor hnd s r.cee -ti fully treated 4 ' 1 "
"fin" patients f.r swine fever. Nov.
comes the absolute confirmation of

That fact was first e.-tabli-l ed hy
doctors in France, when our soldier.-'
began to fall ill of the mysteriou
rr.ak. dy. The doctors reported; me
the importation of American bacv
was stopped. So far so good :
Thanks to these powerful measure-
the ravages of the plague in The

ket was Icing flooded with Amer
ican baron? Nothing absolutely
nothing: The importation was not
forbidden, :irid the nv'.lie were n-.-?
old. Why not? There are ques
tions which everybody who has been
infected, and every relative of every
body who hn died of the plagr.e.
will demand to be answered. Why
werp we not teld? Why was ot
;ne importation stepped? It must ;
be mentioned here that the rerm '

if the department knev.-, what inter

American meat trust and to Ameri
can bacon? A candid statement on
these pressing points must be made
it once; all the people can't be
fooled --or victimise:!--all the time!

Any one that has raised hogs
know that a man is immune from

mals. Some of the bacon rushed

'lipn salt pork. I don't think any
-f the American bacon is of a good
quality as the Irish and Danish,
which is young lean hogs or rather
pigs and is very mild cured and
comes to the market in whole halves
only the head, fet and the leaf
lard being removed. I den't think
"hat kind of curing would kerp good
