i presented by the war is that of

pouring into Washington. The
Government is exercising its pre
rogative in this direction and has
commandeered conveniently lo
cated office buildings and apart

addition, it is erecting huge tem
porary structures for use as offi
ces, and in the building of these
contractors are breaking time
records for construction work. A
building to house the six hundred
officials and clerks of the CounciJ
of National Defense, containing
more than 100,000 square feet of
floor space, was erected and fully
equipped in fifty-three dayp. Simi
lar buildings nearby are for the
use of the forces of the Food Ad

tion, and Army Ordnance. Work
is well under way on a mammoth
structure which will cover throe
city blocks to house the overflow
of the War and Navy Depart

for completion in four months.

ment keeps l n ad vance of its actual
needs. At the present rate of in

employees in Washington will be

If you could see the difference this

you wouldn't wonder I was anxious

"Why, for years she has in

different remedies nothing seemed to

splendid results. If she keeps on
improving at the rate she is going
