The German, on the other hand, fevla tit time of peace as keen iiu Interest In war ua tie does In tbe inldat of a contllot. lie tuki-a noto uf his error In one war and when imicv comes devotes tiluiself to ivuie 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 tary socks. "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. POLITICS AND BUSINESS.
