In all histories of wars among civ-

the rate of insanity is much higher in
the army than in civil life, but In this
war the extraordinary fatigue of mod
ern trench warfare, plus the terrific ar
tillery fire, has produced new prob
lems. Profiting by the bitter experi
ence of the allies, the surgeon genera!
has assigned psychopathic specialists i

In the first enthusiasm of food con
servation a good many people econo
mized vnllantly in dairy product« as
well as in meat and in white flour.
That was a mistaken economy, how
ever. t’sc all the milk and butter and
cheese you can afford to buy. They
».re the best sort of food; they are
not needed for export, and the gener
ous consumption of them will encour
age the dairy Industry to expand. Milk
and cheese and eggs are the best poa-
slhk substitutes for meat; the sup
ply of such foods can be increased
much more rapidly than the supply of
meat; and nothing will effect that In
crease so certainly as a steadily in
creasing demand for them.
Saving accomplishes a -loitble pur
pose. It prevents the diversion of la
bor to useless activity and it estab
lishes our national credit upon n firm
and substantial basis. The integrity
of our financial structure is only sec
ond tn importance to the development
of the highest military efficiency. “As
a people," in the words of Professor .
Scott, “we now have it in our power
either to conserve and strengthen our
credit system or wreck it.”
Charlotte L. Brown was born in
Binghampton, N. Y., May 15, 1830,
and went to Beloit, Wi»., when about
16 years of age. Here »he met and
married Gideon B. Brown in 1848.
Mr. Brown died January 9, 1898. He
was a Civil War veteran and was
buried with military honors in Rock
ford, 111. He was a member of Com
pany C, Fifteenth Illinois Infantry,
and served four years.

In France, says Arkansan Thomas Cat.
Food und drink were supplied to Amer
ican soldiers. Nine rest stations and
seven canteens provided 468,000 meals.
Nine metropolitan canteens served 454-
tekl meals. Three large hospitals were
built and equipped. Three large dis
pensaries have been opened at ports
and hundreds of beds have been added
to the Red Cross military hos
pitals. Many convalescent homes have
been opened, laundries Installed, field
kitchens set up to supply food to sol
diers going to and returning from the
battlefields and 221,000 bags of tobacco
and cigarettes distributed at the camps.
Each field kltchcu has a capacity of
5,000 men dally. Canteens have been
established behind the American lines
where the soldiers gather at night to
smoke, play game« and write letters
to the ones at home.
There Is nothing mean or narrow In

for the participation of women in war
