One of The Four out of 250 Men to Win Merits in Target Shooting Says Soldiers Need a Smile more Than Luxuries. July 8 (Special to The Breckenridge News) James Dwight Randall, one of Cloverport's boys who was born and practically reared in that city was selected for the military service of our country, ar.d when called for service he was placed in the regular army instead of the National service. Since entering service Priv. Randall has won merits and placed in positions by his excellent shooting at target practice, his average being thirty-eigout of every fifty possibilities. There were only four men out of two hundred and fifty in the infantry who won this score. This placed a Cloverport boy, Dwight Randall, as first man in first line, in first squad of his Company. On account of this average he was one of the four equipped to handle one of the new Browning Automatic rifles which is fired, from the hip of the shoulder.

I am laying up inbed with a pillow for a table at the hospital. A bull had a friendly tilt with me and got his horn under my left wing, and, as Albert would say, "he just knocked me off." He did not gore me but bruised the skin which got infected necessitating two operations.

If you are a business man you will appreciate the significance of these facts. If you are unacquainted with business, talk this matter over with some business acquaintance with your banker, say and ask him to compare profits of the packing industry with those of any other large industry at the present time. No evidence is offered by the Federal Trade Commission in support of the statement that the large packers have a monopoly. The Commission's own report shows the large number and importance of other packers. prove The meat business is one of the largest American industries. Any citizen who would familiarize himself with its details must be prepared for large totals.

I tried to go to sleep; I awoke wlieh we got to Nashville, when daylight came we were going through the mountains; the crops I have seen down here are not as good as they were at home Camp Greenleaf is in Chickamauga Park, right in the old hattlc ground. The Park is ahout thirty miles square and will accommodate ahout 80,000 men. I have heen walking around some this evening. Every regiment and hrigade that fought in the old hattle is marked hy a hig monument, and all ahout the fighting, and how many men were lost and wounded is written on the side. The battlefield is all in woods except the cleared fields, where the camp is. There are monuments all through the woods. I saw two batteries of old connon that were used in the battle; they were placed on big granite blocks. These are still in good shape.

I can see now how small the chance is to come back to America, after going on the other side, but I would rather go over there and die, than have them conic on this side. The spirit has changed some in the Company since they told us we were going over real soon, but every one seems to make the best of it and wants to go and get through. No one thinks they will get killed this is the last thing one thinks of. I suppose the boys must be scarce in Stephensport now, as so many-camin the last call. I believe they will go over as we do, for we like about 10,000 men having enough to make a full division, hut they say we will get the men from Camp Taylor; if we do' they will go as we do. I feel sorry for any that goes over with no more training than they will have, but they are sending men now that know very little about how to fight. Suppose they will train them on the other side.

How n division of American soldiers France played raven to the Klljah nf a family of starving French refugees, found cowering In the nttlc of an dd meat market, and how Elijah, In rum, made the ravens comfortable. Is told In this story, written by a T. If. V. A. man in France: "A division of our troops was oa the move. For 88 hours the men had been on the cars. Then they had detrained, and started to hike for the front. Two days of marching had left them stiff and tired. "The T. M. C.

So they loaded three big trucks with canteen supplies, hustled to the village, and looked around for a canteen. Find Family In Want. "They found an old meat market with shutters up, located the owner, and got the key. The supplies were unloaded, and the trucks started back to town. The two men left behind to 'open up' lighted a candle, and began an Investigation of the place. "Up the steep stone stairs they found a room, with a family of refu gees crouching Inside.

Officers, from the new second lieutenant up. will tell us that an army which sits on benches and bottles up gloom Is not an army that will tight. They man Is liable to an attack, but they say, too. that the number and violence of attacks Is amn.lngly few when one considers the circumstances. Judge rjttUowmy of New York said the other night.

The "Y" canteens LABORATORY are a necessity. Both are selling at the figure which to each Is the lowest possible, so when your son writes home and tells you It looks as If he were being stung by the "Y" canteen, Just think It over, and you will see. Personality That Counts. Then It comes to the matter of the personality of the man who Is running the canteen. There are men in France who have the ability to get so close to the soldiers that when they say, "Jack, this is the fact. We've got to do It so because " Jack believes him and Is satisfied, because Jack knows that man !s on the spot to do everything In his power for the soldier. But there are exceptions, and there must be exceptions when thousunds of men are picked hurriedly for emerMen land In gency employment. Frunce without fully understanding what is expected of them, and without understanding Frunce or that splendid organization, the A. K. F. They come with enthusiasm, but without definite knowledge of whut the array wants of them, and until they adjust themselves to conditions, they are apt to come to much grief. One thing few men realize until they have been here u week or two, and that is that they are an integral part of the A. E. F. and tliut they are working under tlie authority of the military not us they suspected, on their own hook or for the Y. M. C. A. Their Job Is to do as they are told, and to do it quickly and exactly. That they can learn, anil do learn, or they hear the approaching footsteps of grim retribution. Most of them learn mort tliey learn what real service means. They learn to forget their own egos and to love humanity as exemplified by an army of bully young men lu khaki.

He says: The bathhouse Is a small wooden structure generally situated some way from the dwelling house. It Is divided Into two compartments, one to undress In, while the other contains the oven which produces the steam. The oven Is arched with large stones or pebbles, and heated by a fire placed beneath. Undressing In the first room, one enters the heated compartment. After a short rest on a wooden form or bench, which contains a place for the head, the attendants come In and bathe you. Cold water Is thrown over the stones and the hissing vapor soon sends up a cloud of steam. The higher you sit from the floor the greater the heat. As more water Is thrown over the red-hstones the vapor becomes so Intense that one can hardly breathe.

The action wag taken under the trenty of 1904 the United Stntes to nssume this police duty whetiever It was necessary to maintain order. The I'una-mato government has protested Washington against the measure. Becuuse the former administration had refused to correct conditions In .the. two cities, soldiers in the canal sone were forbidden to enter them, and the civilian employees boycotted Colon and Panama until the mnndate of the military authorities was carried out by the Panaman government. The new administration, under President Urrtola, began to clean up the with this cities, but in connection work, announced that the elections fixed for June 30 and July 7 would be postponed for six months because of the fear that serious disorders might occur If held on the dates set by law. The opposition party protested to Washington against the deferment of the elections, claiming that such a move would serve no purpose except to favor the candidates supported by the new administration. The American state department advised President Urrtoln to hold the elections. He replied that a fair election could not be held now and suggested that American commissioners supervise the making up of poll books and nssumo charge of an election to be held late in July or early In August, which, the president said, could be held In an open nnd fair manner. No disorders have been reported since It was announced that the decree forbidding the elections would be enforced by the police. The opposition party again protested to AVashlngton and yesterday the American state department notified President Urrlola that because of disorders American troops would police the cities until further notice. Urrlola Isauea Statement. Dr. Clrro Urrlola, the president, last night issued a statement on the situation. It reads: "Foreign Secretary Lefevre states that at eleven o'clock Friday morning, the charge d'affaires of the United States delivered a note informing him that the United States by virtue of article 7 of the treaty of 1004 had or dered that Its armed forces, at two o'clock should enter the cities of Pan ama and Colon to maintain the pub He order In them and on the waters adjacent to them. "At that hour in the midst of pro found tranquility the armed American forces entered without the least re sistance on the part of our police or of the authorities, notwithstanding that the Panaman government did not have time to Inform the city authorities as to the manner In which the American troops would exercise their functions as police, because the memorandum covering this feature was not handed to me until after one o'clock In the afternoon. "I do not wish to characterize now as unjustifiable this act of the government of the United States, but the fact should be considered that my government with the forces at its disposal is able to maintain public order in the whole nation, and without doubt in the cities of I'uuuma and Colon. "True, it Is, that there is considerable political excitement becuuse of the approaching elections, but this Is characteristic of ail democracies. "It is also true that, although there were fears of disturbances in some parts of the republic, nothing has taken place nor could take place, which should give rise to a doubt that the government is Impotent to put down with a strong hand the least attempt at public disorder. Sharp Cablegram to Wilson. President Urrlola has prepared a manifesto to the country and yesterday afternoon sent the following cablegram to President Wilson : "Today at eleven o'clock I was informed by the charge d'affaires of the United States in this capital that at two o'clock the cities of Panama and Ooliui would be occupied by the military forces of the canal zone on the pretext of maintaining public order.
