Soldier* and Food;
Raleigh, March 25.—Future officer*
of the United States Army, who are
now receiving their training in the
United States Military Academy at
West Point, are helping to conaerve
this country's food. At the same time
the health of the cadet corps is bet
ter than ever, according to Captain A.
B. Dixon, Treasurer of the U. S. Mili
All bread used at the Academy is
composed of 45 per cent flour, 45 per
cent rye and 10 per cent white bolted
corn flour. This bread is entirely sat
isfactory, and many cadets consider
it superior to the former product com
posed entirely of wheat flour.
A great saving has been effected in
the use of fats. Formerly about 840
pound* of lard and 450 pounds of but
terine were consumed by the cadet*
each month. The use of these two
products has been entirely discon
tinued. In their place, drippings ob
tained from the fatty portions of meat
carcasses are substituted; the yield
from the meat purchased for use in
the mess being about 2,500 pounds of
| fine grease, which is used in making
pie crust*. Frc nch fried potatoes and
similar dishes. After this grease has
served its purpose it Is shipped to
New York where the clear grease is
sold at 13Hc per pound, the by-pro
ducts in the way of scraps bringing
4Sc. The bones from the carcasses
are sold at lVic per pound.
During the month of January the
revenue from the sale of grease that
had been once used brought (416.00
The sugar problem has also been
solved to the satisfaction of the au
thorities and without discomfort to
the cadets. Formerly a great deal
of syrup made from granulated sugar
combined with mapleine product was
used in the mess. A refined cane
«yrup was substituted and it gave sat
isfaction and substantially cut the
consumption of sugar.
Meatless Tuesday is being observed
in the Academy, and it is said that the
health of the corps is better at the
present time, due to the reduction in
the consumption of meat, than when
the cadets received meat in some form
two or three times a day. The num
ber being fed in the mess is about
775. Each person is served three
meals a day.

Allies Ready ta Strike Bark.
With the slackening of the German
pace there come In dentions tha* the
allies are ready to strike hack .'ome
where along the front. Just where
this hinw w'll bo launched will not be
known until it is struck, but it may be
expected that its impact will be ter

council at Versailles created a great
strategic reserve of men to be used in
Just the contingency which confronts
the armies which have borne the brunt
of the fighting since last Thursday
I nis force prooahly will be launched
when and where it Is believed it will
break the force of the German on
slaught and send the enemy reeling
back over the desert from which the
British have slowly withdrawn.
Each succeeding day reveals the
plan 'of the Germans absolutely to
crush the allied lines west of Cam
brai, a terrain which could not be de
fended by von Hindenhurg a year ago.
Each official report shows that this
sector is valueless from a military
standpoint and that the Germans have
paid a terrible price for their advance
to the lines established by the allies
during the first two years of warfare.
It is officially reported that 70 German
divisions, or 840,000 men, have taken
part in the fighting and that troops
h»ve been moved from every part of
the western battlefront to reinforce
the armies which have been forcing
the British to fall back. Observers
at the front say that the German
losses have been frightful, and that
the enemy has lost from 10 to 20
per cent of his men, by the most con
K*petition 01 Murk * nasn.
The situation a* it standi) seems to
be a repetition of the dash of Gener
al von Kluck on Paris, in 1914, when
the German artillery and transport
could not keep up with the infantry
and the French were able to turn back
the invaders at the Mame. Reports
from various sectors In the last two
days have indicated that the German
infantry, relying on its mass attacks,
has fought without the customary as
sistance of the artillery. To bring up
heavy guns requires time and the Ger
man advance will steadily become
more painful and coetly.

cations has been growing longer, the
British have constantly moved nearer

Anomer raae ni a similar nature
wan settled in the court at the same
time when Harold Macklcy of Hol
land, Vt, wax sentenced to 16 years
at Atlanta for disloyal utterances, j
Evidence was produced to show that
Mackley boasted that he was proud of
his German descent, and if forced to
fight against the Germans, would kill
the Americans before he was shot.
His employer offered evidence that
Markley said he would be glad if the
United States was beaten, ctaiming
il:ut "if the country had minded itsow.i
business it wouldn't be in War." Mack-1
ley, in defending himself said that
these were "jokes."
Mr. Waldron was tried at Brattle-1
boro about two months ago when the
jury failed to agree after being out 24
hours. At both trials, Waldron has'
protested his innocense of the charges
against him, despite the many wit
nesses produced by the Government
that Wildron had been refused the use
of n Baptist church on account of his
pacificist tendencies and that he had
spoken against the Liberty loans as
well as advising young men to oppose
the draft, even to the extent of being
shot for so doing.

White Oak. Post, and Chestnut oak, standard specifica
tions of 7"X8"X8 feet and 6 inches long, when sawed and
7"X7" hewed, same length as sawed.
We also have order for 5,000 No. 2 cross ties, to be
any size under the above sizes, down to 6"X7" and length
to be the same as for No. ones, also to be from above
kinds of oak timber.
Almost all timber haulers already know the speci
fication and we mention this for those who will be getting
out timber this year who have not made ties before.
Also all this timber must be sound, all knots smoothed
off with the tie and all bark peeled off when either sawed
A great many haulers lose their grade by measuring
with their axe handles and we would ask that you cut a
pole exactly eight and one half feet long and make all
ties according to this length, and notch it for 7 inches to
get face and thickness.
At this time we also wish to thank the hundreds of
people who sold their timber to us last year and beg to
assure them of the same fair and courteous treatment for
the coming season.
The price, effective February 1st is 60 cents each for
No. 1 ties and 50 cents for second class.
For Red Oak, Spanish Oak, and all other kind# of
oak (except the above mentioned kinds,) also Hickory
and Ash we will pay 50 cento for No. l's, and 40 cento for
No. 2's, same specifications aa above.
