Mrs. Moulden is anxious thai we make a letter showing. A
number of young ladies have made application and their
blanks will be forwarded to the National Council of Defense
in the early future. The young women will hold themselves
in Readiness to enter training until April, 1919. T^e course
is three years in length in both Hit army schools and in the
civilian hospital schools. A call for 1000 registered nurses
has been made for them to enter active service in either the
army or the navy each week which makes the immediate en
trance into training of the Students Nurse Reserve a neees
sitv. It is estimated that the call for registered nurses will
bring all the registered nurses in the I'nited States into ac
tive service in less than a year's time. Our young women
should hear and heed the call ol" patriotism as their brothers
have done and are doing in such large numbers. The services
of these young women in helping to win the war must be had
by the government if it litis to resort to the expedient of
drafting them. Young women between the ages of 19 and
35, who have no dependents to support to hold them at
home, should be the first to volunteer their services in this
emergency. It is a great privilege for these young women to
obtain a thorough and practical training afforded by the Sin
dent Nurse Reserve which qualifies them in helping the sick
and wounded American soldiers. After completing this task
and when peace again prevails, these young, women will find
themselves possessed of a profession that will yield them
salaries ranging from one hundred to three hundred dollars
per month in civilian life after the war is over.

ter under the arrangement provided
for by Departmental Order No. 1277
whereby unwrapped, unaddresscd
copies of inagiusines bearing notice
to reader prescribed in that order are
accepted for mailing' at the postage
rate of one cent each and placed in
the hands of soldiers and sailors, re-

that additional magazines e.ould be
used to advantage at tho various
camps throughout, the country. Tho!
reports indicate that tho magazines
are heartily appreciated altd serve In

It Is believed that If postmaster will
bring this mutter to the attention of;
their patrons the latter will gladly,
respond and so Increase the number
of magazines mailed under the ar-1
raneinent referre<l to that the need
for reading matter of tills kind may
be fully met. It should be borne In
tnlpd that, the magazines should be
of current or comparatively recent is-

magazines and those of local or re-
stricted interest, are of nri' value and

Thus, Mr. Vest makes $20 an acre—a
pretty good sum for a sixty days' In- I
This is a splendid farm, located In ]

li serious situation for farmers who
wish to sow Winter grain. Tliuy must
work out two difficult problems for
each locality, or employ some one to
do the 'work for them. That work Is
difficult and expensive Our uitlllon-
and-a-hulf-u-ycai National Weather
Bureau refuses to do the work for the
farmers and no Individual eiiti^ afford
to do It without extra pay. I am reaily
to show the U. S. Weather Bureau
how the work can be done to much
greater-perfection than I am finan-
cially able to do It. But for showing
them how 1 must be compensated.
The t'Wo problems the farmers need
to be worked out for them Is when
they will get sufficient, rain for sowing
Winter grain, and will the 191# crop-
w eat her be such I hut it will pay them
to sow Winter grain. I am satisfied
there are some sections where they
should rely on Spring grain and nut
waste their seed in sowing Winter
4 1. Official science lilts long tried
to account for the coal beds. Listen
to my hypothesis. It is well know,a
to scientists that comets have an im-
mense amount ol carbon In their
clouds and 111aI their clouds are vastly
more extensive, in proportion td their
solid parts, than are the clouds of
Vehiis, Jupiter of Saturn. <>ur Moon
was one of the liu-gost. if not the larg-
est, comets that ever came into our
solar system and it probably carried
n.4 much cloud material as Jupiter
now carries. Clouds ol Jupiter and
Saturn have great dark belts, suppos
ed to be carbon iu the form of dense
smoke. The inner ring of Saturn is
very dark and scientists claim thai it
is carbon. Of course the heaviest parts
of the clouds Would be first to preci-
pitate as the Moon's average distune,
from the Kurlh increased. Astrono-
mers have no doubt I lull the Moon
was formerly much nearer the Karlli
than now and that it is still slowly-
going farther away. No scientist
doubts that this Is favorable fo ;> de-
crease in rainfall. Mongolia is now
