Dear Sir: When the District and County Quotas' for Florida were made ud. it was upon the basis of $170,500,000.
You have doubtless seen in the press the fact that President Wilson has approved ah increase of this National
$ quota to $250,000,000. We have received formal notice of this fact.
Florida in company with other States of the Union, has cheerfully accepted the additional quota thus neces-
c sitated. We feel, however, that it would, at this late date,, be wise not to increase the quotas of the Districts and
' Counties, but are writing all District and County Chairmen, and acquainting them with these facts. We believe
it is only necessary to let the people understand that each county will have to go over the top, to the extent of at
least 25 per cent, to insure the raising of Florida's share of this immense sum. We believe the people would pre- "4
fer to do this in this way, and having so much confidence in them, we feel that this is the best course to pursue.
You will readily realize that you ought to immediately acquaint every leader in your territory with this vital-
J ly changed situation, but the people themselves ought to understand the situation thoroughly. I. shall leave this f;
H .matter entireley to you having confidence that your territory will meet the new situation in splendid fashion.
: With kindest regards, I am, Yours sincerely,

I was struck to read in the report
of the struggle of, the 11th of August,
that "The Americans arrived after a
forced march in the nick of time on
the battle field in the" triangle of
Chipilly. Without stopping to restj
they fixed their bayonets and followed
'ie tir de barrage' so that they might
dash forward immediately the cannon
stopped firing. They were almost ex exclusively
clusively exclusively young men from Chicago.
They were met by a fierce volley of
machine guns but with a cry of 'Lusi 'Lusitania!
tania! 'Lusitania! Lusitania!' they dashed for forward,

Of these young heroes of Chicago
it is testified that if placed under good
head officers, who require years of
training, no better or more intelligent
soldiers could a commander desire.
"They are the most intelligent,

Young America is sending as many

MERELY COUSINS OF CHRIST
Explanation of Biblical Passages That
Seem to Say the Redeemer Had
Brothers and Sisters.
To judge from the passages Matthew
12:44, 46; 13:55, 56; Luke 7:19; St.
John 7 :3, 5, 10, Christ undoubtedly had
brothers and sisters. These passages,
are, however, contradicted by others,
from which we learn that the pretend
ed brothers of Christ were only his
cousins. Thus, according ; to Luke
6:15, and John 19:25, James was, the
son of one Alpheus, or Cleophas, and
Mary, the Virgin's sister. From Mat
thew 27:55, and Mark 15:40, we learn(
that Joses, or Joseph, was James'
brother, and ", according to Luke
6 :16, was also Jude. In other pas
sages the fourth pretended brother of
Christ Is designated by the Jews as
the brother of James, Jude and Joses.
It is also claimed, in explanation of
this theological puzzle, that the Jews
were wont to apply the, term brother
to cousins, to relatives In collateral
line, and even to mere, friends (Gene (Genesis
sis (Genesis 12:14-29). The view that the
above-mentioned personages were but
Christ's cousins, and not his brothers,
is held by Tertullian,, Origen, Ambrosi Ambrosi-us,
us, Ambrosi-us, Irenaeus and, in fact, by all the
Catholic church ; also prominent
protestants (Grotius, Calvin etc)

To Make Your. Shoes Last.
When your shoe leather gets dry or
hard, you should oil or grease It, says
the popular Science Monthly. To do
this, first brush off all mud and then
wash the shoe In warm water, drying it
with a soft cloth
While tlie shoe is still wet, apply the
oil or grease, rubbing it in with a swab
of wool, or better still, with the palm
of the hand. After treatment, the
shoes should be left to dry in a warm
but not in a hot place. Castor oil is
recommended for shoes that are to be
polished. For plainer footgear, fish oil

up and I have mentally consigned it
to the salvage dump. Ere departing
from our summer training station, I
was ordered to dispose of the other
trunk along with the most of my re

that time we have systematically shed
some articles of comfort at each new
