CANNED RATION NIL
Tested on English Soldiers Shows
Loss of Strength.
Twenty Men of North Lancashire Regi-
ment Undergo Experiment of Two
Weeks to Demonstrate Its
Londbn.—Twenty men of the North
Lancashire regiment have just under-
gone a test for two weeks to prove the
sustaining power of limited rations.
The men have marched for a fort-
night on Salisbury plain under service
conditions, carrying rifle and bayo-
net with 150 rounds of ammunition
They have covered 160 and 170 miles
of hard marching," mostly in bad
weather, sleeping under canvas, and
cooking their own meals.
No special selection of men was
made, as the purpose of the test was
to ascertain the effect of a strict and
limited diet on an average batch of
soldiers varying in height, weight anil
chest measurement. For the first
week canned rations alone were is-
sued. Somfi of the men put on weight,
others lost flesh. In every caBe the
effect of canned rations on the capaci-
ty for marching was bad, leaving the
men without energy or the desire to
do more than endure existence.
During the second week the ordi-
nary service rations were issued, con-
sisting of one and one-fourth pounds
fresh meat, or one pound nominal pre-
served meat, or one pound salt meat;
one and one-fourth pounds bread, or
one pound biscuit, or one pound flour,
flVe-eights ounce tea; one-thirty sixth
ounce pepper; one-fourth pound jam;
two ounces sugar; one-half ounce salt;
one-hart pound fresh or four ounces
preserved vegetables. On this the men
marched from 14 to 20 miles a day,
and began again to enjoy life, and
gave evidence of returning energy by
playing football and hockey after the
Beer, spirits, and cigarettes were
withheld during the first week, but for
the second week two ounces of tobacco
was issued to each smoker. It was
noted that, as usual, In the absence
of fresh vegetables, the men developed
a craving for sugar and jam. The loss
of alcohol was not felt so keenly as
the loss of cigarets by those whe were
in the habit of using them.
Daily, before and after the march,
measurements and tests were taken
for pulse, blood, and pressyre, and gen-
eral condition, the men being ques-
tioned as to how they felt generally.
The conclusion arrived at is that the
rations are on the light side, but. there
1b no doubt as to the splendid condi-
tion of the men.
The canned ration weighed seven
and one-half ounces, divided in three
small tins. The breakfast tin consists
of a mixture of caked egg, fish and
bread; dinner, cak(>d meat, egg, fish,
oatmeal and fat; supper, eaked cheese,
egg and meat. In addition to this a
■mall biscuit was served.
At the end of two weeks the average
loss in weight a man was five pounds,
and the average loss in chest measure-
ment one inch. None fell out except
one man, who was sick'after eating
some nightshade berries, and was car-
ried for half of one day's march.

In Behalf of Ex-Convicts
The following communication was

Last Sabbath I preached to hun-
dreds of convicts intheHunts-
ville State prison. They gave the
most profound and serious atten-
tion. At the close of the sermon,
a crowd of them came forward
and gave me their hands, promis-
ing to trust in Him as their Savior,
The good chaplain at the close of
the meeting, said to me: "Those
men were in earnest." I had a
long talk about prison matters
with Capt. Underwood, the
captain of the prison. He is a
grand man and should be the
next man as superintendent of
the Texas State prisons, He has
great faith from long experience
and hard study of prison matters,

tating prison reformation, as to
treatment of prisoners, is gen-
. But, I took up my pen to say a
few words, especially for those
who are pardoned and those who
have served out their terms of
1. There is the best reason to
believe a good number of the par-
doned out and those who have
served out their terms were not
guilty of the crimes for which
they were imprisoned.
2 Comparatively few of the
guilty were or are hardened
criminals. Many of them com-
mitted what was their first crime
under the impulse of the evil
moments, bitterly repenting of
thecripne in a few moments after
its commission—most from intox-
icating liquors. JVIany of these
convicts are as good men natural-
ly, as any of us, or, at least nearly
so, and many of them better men
than many who are outside of

on convicts who are confirmed
criminals are comparatively few.

never repeated crime and have

point the finger of sham^ at him
and advertise and boycott him
as an "ex-convct!. Alone in the
world and without "friends."
Let me beg for these ex-convicts
a place in the hearts of every true
man and woman. Give them
your sympaties—a warm heart
your prayers and leave unturned
no stone to open the way for
them to make an honorable liv-
ing. Now, that they are just
out, is the crisis in their lives—
the crisis for time and eternity.
If a cold world helps temptation
load them down; •many of them
will return to crime; and havnig
failed to land this time, their
cases are almost absolutely hope-
less hereafter for both time and
eternity. These poor fellows,
like, us are human. They have
our common desires and aspira-
tions. They are candidates for
and noble destiny for time and
eternity. Give them the heart
that our Savior gave the poor
thief on the cross, and thus prove
that you have~our Savior, s spirit.

Don Biggers' resentment ex-
pressed in the Lubbock Enter-
prise of the 18th is a strong arti-
cle, equal to the provocation.
Any one who knows Don Big-
gers and the subjects of the arti-
cle criticized is well aware that
there are no grounds or excuse
for such criticism. It was not call-
ed for in any way and the reproof
is well reserved.
We know of no one more ready
to pay for every service and meet
every obligation and responsi-
bility than the C B, Live Stock
Company and its agent, the Bas-
se tt Land Company, with boftwrf
which Julian M. Bassett is prom-
inently identified, and sufficient
guarantee of their liberal,
Such controversies are unfor-
tunate and to be regretted and
persons provoking them cannot , ? 11

We doubt if this will be accorded ^
them even at home.
