"Sny, Uncle Dan," said Blllle, "Jlra-ml- e mid 1 have been looking up about war in the encyclopedia at school. We found that in the war between Germany and France in 1S70-7Germany lost in killed and wounded 28.000 soldiers ad m nance lost about nix times as man,, and besides that, she lost every battle. We asked Professor wl 1 this was. He said that the German army was highly trained and ably commanded, while the French soldiers were poorly trained ; and that their war department was honeycombed with jealousy and politics; that the officers were not much good, and that's why France lost the war nnd so many men. What do you think ubout it, Uncle Dan?" "Well," said Uncle Dan, "Professor Slocum is right. By iuetliciency France lost that wur, together with two of her best provinces Alsuce and and had to pay a billion dollars Indemnity money. France today learned her lesson by that sad experience, so she put in universal military training, and as a result, her soldiers now know how to fight and how to protect themselves. They are losing less men in the war than the Germans. France also pst polities out of her war department, so that expert authority, instead of burenucratle stupidity, now directs the army. The result is. Frunce has one of the best and most efficient armies every assembled, nnd this shows what thorough training and good leadership means in warfare. This saved France in this crisis, as well as the liberties of the world." "As war is now conducted, there Is no place for an uutraiued man. A body of 10,000 well trained soldiers properly handled could defeat live t:'M.v- their number of raw recruits uud do it every time with comparatively small loss to themselves. Proper training alone will redure the death and casualty rate of what it otherwise would be, uud right here is an unanswerable argument for universal mi., try training. 'Cur government has no moral right to force her men into wur service without properly training them for it. To do so is simply murder, hence the frantic effort that is now being made to give her soldiers some training before they ure sent to the front If we are to win this war, it will take trained men to do it, and it will take trained men to win any other war that may come upon us in the future. If we must fight, let us fight to win and not to lose." "That's the stuff," said Billie. Continuing, Uncle Dan said: "Our 0 goverument has expended about to put up cantonments and training stations in order to train the men ' called by the selective draft. When these men are trained the training stations should be Immediately filled with younger men, say those in their nineteenth year, to receive six months of intensive military training along the lines of the Chamberlain bill. This will be of immeasurable benefit to them Individually. It will do them more good than any other two years of their whole life ; It will make quick them strong, manly, to see and quick to act; It will equip them for a successful life. In short. It will rebuild American manhood and body will also slve the government 1, our-selv- CASTORIA 30 M IlC&v&ZESi f- Ui-d- i, mu.-ki.o-w Slo-cu- m 1 . off.
