itn and eleven deaths from pneu
moi.ia each day among the soldiers at
Camp Cody, Deming, N. M.. is re
ported by Mrs. Gus Hollo, 5326 North
Twenty-fifth street, who went to
Deming to distribute Christmas
boxes for the Dundee Woman's Pa
triotic Knitting club. Mrs. Hollo is
known as "Aunt Sarah" among the
boys of the 134th machine gun com
pany, whom the Dundee women have
"adopted" for the period of the war.
"All the bunks in the base hospital,
which occupies a mile of ground, are
occupied and there is a great scarcity
of nurses and physicians. Men ill

each. It .was the saddest part of mv
trip; I couldn't stand the sight," said
"The sand is something awful,"
continued Mrs. Hollo. "The soldiers
drill in such clouds of sand you could
hardly see their figures and they
couch so harcTthat when we were re
turning to the camp from the parade
ground we could not hear the band
for their coughing."
Sand Causes Trouble.
L Mrs. Hollo believes that sand clog
i ging ilie lungs is the cause of a great
deal uf the seriousness of the pneumo
"The climate, too, must have some
thing to do with it. It gets very
warm during the day, but the nights
are extremely cold, and the boys prob
ably neglect to adjust their clothing
according to the changes of climate."
Mrs. Hollo herself suffered a se
vere attack of pleurisy in the five
days she spent at camp.
Farents who have visited Deming
during the holidays are up in arms
against the location of the canton
ment at that place.
, Boys Have to Sutler.
'Sohie who returned on the train
with me were particularly bitter be
cause of what the boys have to suf
fer from the sand."
"The boys themselves seem happy
and do not complain," said Mrs. Hollo.
Two Nebraska boys in the 134th
machine gun company died at Dem
ing. ix more in the hospital were
visited by Mrs. Hollo.
Mrs. Hollo was the guest of Cap
tain and Mrs. Clifford Gardner. Mov
ing pictures, which will be shown here
in the near future, were taken of the
presentation of the Christmas gifts to
the boys by Mrs. Hollo. The men
gave Mrs. Hollo a handsome knitting

The farms of the United States
must produce more sheep. More
than the entire wool production of
the United States will be used in
clothing and outfitting our armies.
The apparel of one soldier represents

There are six farms without sheep
for every farm with sheep in the
United States. And yet sheep may
be produced profitably in practically
every part of the country and in
an economical agricultural adjust

There are 1,200,000 fewer sheep in
the United States this year than in
1914. The wool production of .this
country has decreased steadily. It
was 321.362,730 pounds in 1910", 290,
192,000 pounds in 1914, 288,490,000
pounds in 1916 and 285,573,000 pounds
in 1917. At the same time the

During this same period the con- soldiers have one great worry in life,
sumption of mutton also increased. In; is a large, stern, unfeeling worry,
otlier words, we used sltcen products i noncommissioned and extremely lr
faster than we raised sheep. As each !
country developed range lands ad
vanced in value. Farming increased
and tfiat decreased the sheep
ranges. So they began to sell mutton
as well as wool. These changes
came gradually through a period of
years. Finally a point was reached
where the world's wool production
was practically stationary. Lambs
were killed for mutton at a rate that
prevented an increase in the docks.
The problem that we would have
had to solve sooner or later has been
made an urgent one by the war. Nx
farms out of seven in the United
States can help.
