THREE MILLION MEfl
Washington, Dec. 18. -The aban
donment' of the volunteer military
system was recommended by the army
general staff because the time has
come when the United States, unless
it intends to avoid war at any cost,
must resort to universal military
tiaining, Major General Scott, chief
of staff of the army, told the Senate
military committee today. He assert
ed that universal training would be
democratic, reliable, efficient and eco
nomical and within a few years would
practically render the United States
immune fr6m attack.
General Scott expressed the opinion
that for war with a first class power
the United States should have a mil
lion and a half troops ready at the
outbreak of hostilities with a million
and a half to follow in ninety days.
AN EXAMPLE BEFORE OUR EYES
Gen. Scott based his opinion on the
development of the British army, the
organization of great Canadian forces
and the British alliance with Japan.

actually gotten to work and are out

close of the triple vote offer in sight,
there will be a lot of changes in the

and the winner will not be known
until the announcement is made by
the judges when all the votes are
counted at the close on Jan. 20.
New nominations are coming in
every day and with these comes added
interest in the campaign. Those who

Saving money is the one sure way to have money.

Many small deposits make a large sum; as the amount increases, your
interest in your balance increases, and it is that interest, called "the saving
habit," that leads to wealth.

- Mrs. Livingstone Wilson, only surviv surviving

Old Chltambo, where her father's heart

a month to reach It from Capetown.
At New Chltambo, which Is 55 miles

ficulties by insisting on taking a dose
of every medicine which was ordered
for his people. The narrow canoes, the
unsafe native bridges of stocks, the
thwarts of which had been eaten by
white ants, and the fear of mudholes
and crocodiles when tht travplprs n-prp
carried In hammocks across the riv-1
ers made the journey adventurous.
At Old Chitambo an old chief called
Chitend, from another village, claimed
that it was in his mother's hut that
Doctor Livingstone died, and four
other old men, who refused to believe
that Mrs. Wilson was Doctor Living Livingstone's
stone's Livingstone's daughter "He had no child
with him ; he always came alone," they
said remembered him and told of him
through the Interpreter. The discrep discrepancies
ancies discrepancies between their version and that
of the biographers were, Mrs. Wilson
said, of great interest. The old chief's
claim that Doctor Livingstone died In
his mother's hut arose from the fact
that,' while his followers had gone
ahead to build him a grass hut, he be became

the eaves of a native hut, dying after afterward

The old men declared that they re-4

burying the heart under a great tree,
at the other side of which old Chltam Chltambo,

.Battle history halts sat the arctic

difficult to sustain that its willful
waste is unthinkable. The Lapps and
Samoyeds of arctic Russia, like the Es Eskimos
kimos Eskimos of North America and Green Greenland,

of dearth and famine to sacrifice their

has become a vague religion and so social

The armies of the great white czar,
like those of the king-emperor, are not
recruited in such distant places; in indeed,

stature and Intellect that a military
training is next to Impossible cer certainly
tainly certainly not a thing to be thought of
in the days of a great campaign, Pear Pearson's
son's Pearson's Weekly observes.
The population of arctic Russia, both
in Asia and in Europe, outside the of official
ficial official and mercantile classes, contains
few elements which are truly Slavonic,
but in the minds of insular Britons the
reputation of arctic dwellers pertains
to all the people living in. Siberia, which
is always portrayed as a land of ice
and snow and unhealthy marsh..
The Siberian battalions, which have
won so great a fame in the Russian
campaigns, are drawn mainly from
territory as near the equator as Great
Britain.. It is undeniable that their
winters are terribly severe, but in the
hot summer crops of the utmost value

It is not impossible to lead a robust
life in the Siberia of military Russia.

How goes the news of war to these
Most casually and slowly, without a
doubt. There are colonies in the fro frozen
zen frozen North which have not yet heard
of the Russo-Japanese war, and cer-.
tainly have no knowledge of the pres present

They are free from national duties
and taxation, and their intercourse,
even with fur "traders of blood alien to
their own, is meager indeed. There
are dialects spoken by these tribes

SYNOPSIS OF SUNDAY SERMONS
The Methodist congregation showed
appreciation of the continuation of Dr.
J. M. Gross in Ocala for another
year's work by filling the church to
its capacity Sunday morning. Few
pastors have met with the general
favor and the continuous successes
which have been characteristic of Dr.
Gross' ministry in Ocala. Yesterday
morning Dr. Gross spoke on "Peter's
Testimony of the Truth of the Bible
and of Christianity." His testimony is
found in 2 Peter 1:16-21 and is as fol follows:
lows: follows: 1. An Oral Testimony.: "We
did not follo"w cunningly devised
fables, when we made known unto
you the power and coming of our
Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eye eyewitnesses
witnesses eyewitnesses of His majesty."' 2. The
Testimony of Personal Experience:
"Yedo well to take heed, as unto a
"light that shineth in a dark place,
until the day dawn, and the day star
arise in your hearts." At the even evening
ing evening service Dr. Gross read the letter
to the Church at Sardis, Rev. 3:1-6.
He gave an account of the history of
this church, its organization, and its
environment. He mentioned the com complaint

a name that thou Iivest and thou art
dead," and "I have 'found no works
of thine perfected before my God."
Then he -emphasized the commenda commendation

did not defile their garments: and
they shall walk with me for they are
worthy." The closing he brought out
the encouragement Christ gave to the
church at Sardis to be watchful: "Be
thou watchful, and establish the
things that remain. He that ev-
ercometh shall tnus De arrayed in

sermon were exnorted to watch their

The Rev. John R. Herndon, at the
morning service at the Presbyterian
church gave a resume of some of the
doctrines held by Presbyterians. This
sermon was a most interesting discus discussion
sion discussion of the doctrines relating to the
Son of God, human freedom, civil lib liberty,
erty, liberty, ; the supremacy of Christ, and
salvation by grace. These are a few
of the fundamental principles upon
which Christianity has laid the stress
in all the centuries. Evangelical
Christianity will continue to empha emphasize

the evening Mr. Herndon delivered an
especially evangelical message from
Rom. 8:1: "There is therefore now no
condemnation to them that are in
Christ." The Presbyterian Sunday
school will hold its Christmas exer exercises
cises exercises Friday evening.
At the Baptist church the Rev. Mr.
Stephens spoke from the text; "So did
not I because of the fear of God."
Neh. 5:15. The sins committed by the
people of Israel were recounted and
the statement of Nehemiah, "So did
not I," was emphasized. The speaker
developed the text under the follow following

Doing as Others Do. That is the easy
course. "When in Rome, do as the
Romans Do." So in Ocala, in busi business,

"CAUSED DEMAND FOR HATS
How Boer Trader Introduced Fash

It Is said that one De Villiers, a
Boer, was the man to introduce hats

In Port Elizabeth, which were offered
for a mere song, De Villiers bought
the whole lot, packed them away In

to prove an unprofitable one. The na natives
tives natives did not want hats; they wanted
blankets and beads and looking
glasses, and, above all, liquor, but
they looked askance at hats. Then a
bright idea came to De Villiers. He
wanted to introduce those hats. His
simple expedient was to refuse to sell
anything to a Kaffir unless he bought
a hat also. The Kaffirs wanted his
goods, so they bought the hats.
When a Kaffir buys anything he
feels bound to make use of It. The na natives,

Seismographs to Find Batteries.
Among the many things to which

fair accuracy the position of an op opposing

on in, many ways, but the nearest sci science

has been announced, in which the seis seismograph,

declared to be possible to teU from

claimed, can tell not only these points,
but can distinguish between the shock

England, where he begged King Henry

Kut Henry remembered that there
were many other kings in Ireland and
he refused to side with MacMurrough,
though he gave permission to any of
his subjects who liked, to go to Ireland
and aid the Leinster king. A company
of barons, therefore, left their barren
lands in South Wales and crossed
over to Ireland to win themselves rich
lands there where soil was fertile. At
the head of this band of barons was
