great cardinal conditions, Jesu-, Christ

Paul White Wins Honors
Fiom u very interesting letter writ
ten by Paul White to his father, T. W.
White, who is a farmer near this city,
wc make the following extracts:
I am in Philadelphia again tonight
and am sure tired. We were out on
the rifle range today and had an of
ficial firing contest with 30-30 rifles.
The targets arc out of sight and
come up for 30 seconds. A bulls eye
counts 5; the first circle 4; second cir
cle 3; and so on down to nothing.
In rapid filing I scoied 74 pointfi
filing five shots laying down, five
squatting, five kneeling, and five
standing. All from the 200-yard
lange and using the peep sights.
At slow firing I scoied 92 points out
of a possible 100. This was for mark
manship, in which I qualified, and for
which I have $1 per month added to
my pay. Tlieio were only four of
the eighty contestants who did better.
This aftci noon, those who qualified
in marksmanship tried out in shaip--hooting.
I was the only ono making
tin' requited scoic. At fiOO yards I
ha I thiity seconds In which to fne
ii c shots, then ninety seconds to run
the -100-yaid lino set my sights
and load. Fired fivo times squatting,
Kin to the 300-yard lino nnd fired five
times kneeling, lan to the 200-yard
line and fired five times standing. I
pot G8 points out of a possible 100 in
this tost, nnd then scored 82 in twenty
hhots fired from the 500-yard lino.
I am supposed to get an additional
raise of $5 for making good in tho
sharpstootors class. i
Some of tho fellows did not get
their five shots out before tho target
disappeared and of course lost.
I signed to go over to Fiance as an
interpreter of German. Somo of tho
boys signed for French and somo for
Italian. If I get this appointment it
will probably pay a good salary.
I am gun pointer on va 7-Inch gun
now and when wo go to sea again I
w ill try out for marksmanship with it.
Will firo twenty rounds and if I
qualify that will add 8 per month to
