dying these errors.
A German otUeer who wiih vUltlns
Atuerlen sMke or the way in whnh Ills
people nddreased tbemelve to war
problems In time of peace.
"Here Is nil excellent llliHtnitlim." ho
said, and, HMIiitf lain foot, tie tiih off
his shoe. From about bis futit tie then
took, not the ordinary r-k that men
wear elsewhere, but n sort of napkin
or handken-bler, wblrh was carefully
folded about It
"This;" he said. -W the German mili
tary sock. It r the result of years of
study nnd experiment by the best
minds, nut only In the German nrmy,
but In German faience' nnd medicine.
During the Frnuro-Prmwhrn war of
JSTO, wben our armies were ranking
forced marches around Aletx and on
to Sedan, our Infantry was much tm
jKKled by sore feet Wben It enme to
having a certain nnraber of men at a
certain point at a certain time for a
devbdvo stroke we were usually from
10 to 30 int rent short, because so
many men had fallen opt of tbe ranks
from sore feet.
"We got through the war all right,
for our enemies were as badljr off In
that respect as we were, but as soon
as the war was over tho government
ordered every man In the service to
tun, bis attention to contriving n form
of footwear that would be more scrr
Iceabte to the man of peace wben sud
denly railed to war. It was years be
fore tbe prevent sock was adopted.
Thousands of dollar were spent In
eilMTlmentluu. Thousands of soldiers
marched In nil kinds of footgear, test
ed every osslbte kind of sock nnd
stocking. After years of trial tbts form
was chosen. Here are some of tbo
ways In which It can be worn."
Thetvuon the offlrer took tbe nan
kin. which . was nbont , eighteen or
twenty Inches square, made of cotton
and llneu and folded It about bis foot
with tbe deftness of n Turk winding
his turban about bis bead. Then, un
wrapping It. be folded It about bis
foot In a different manner and then
In still a third way.
"There are nhoot thirty different
ways of folding this sock about tbo
foot." he said, "and daring his threo
years In the urmy tbe soldier Is taught
to become, expert In using them all.
Each manner of folding It has a differ
ent purpose. One will rellere a uoro
ness of the heel; another a weariness
of tbe Instep; a third will protect an
Irritated corn, and a fourth will re
lieve the Inflamed ball of the foot. At
the same, time that the soldier U
taught these different methods of
wrapping tbe sock be also learns tho
anatomy of tbe foot, nnd Just why tbo
different wrappings relievo the differ
ent foot ailments. ,
"After serving bis two years Id tho
army." continued tbe officer, "the sol
dler goes bark to civil life and be
comes, let us nay, a clerk at a desk.
For ten years be doesn't walk a mile
a day. At tbe end of that time war
breaks out and he Is called to the col
ors. He goes to tbe depot uf bis regi
ment and there finds among hi other
accoutrement two pairs of these mili
"Next morning, ho starts to march
wltb his regtmeut. At tbe end of an
bour, wben be has tramped two or
three. mUta over a country road, be U
allowed ten minutes for rest. .Sow.
toe chance are that that soldier bas
a pair of very sore feet. Ile'stts down,
takes off his shou. dlsgnuses his sore
places, and. recalling bis early train
ing, folds hi sock back on his foot so
as to give Immediate, relief. When, a
few minutes later, be falls Into line,
he bas virtually a new pair of feet
And this he does Just as often as new
foot troubles appear
Tbu tremendous advantage that nn
army thus eqiilpjied has over one that
wears the old fasHloncd sock Is obvi
ous. If 'getting there wltb tbe most
men first la the' science of war tho
army with the German sock Is at least
one-third more effective than the oth
er." Vouth's Companion.
