What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
THE STANFORD WORLD. •r- • NEARLY 2,000,000 MEN IN THE ARMY MIGHTY ARMY OP THE UNITED STATES GATHERING MORE STRENGTH DAILY Will have Reached n Tot.il of 2.280.- 000 by the End,of May; Half Mil- lion Men Now Abroad; Million Men Expected to be in Frau o by July 1. According to advices received by the attorney general's office in Hel- ena there are now 1,900,000 soldiers under arms, abroad, in the training camps and various mobilization cen- ters, or on detail. That constitutes the grand army of the United States up to date. By the end of May the army will have been in- creased to 2,251,000. In addition to men in the various classes subject to the draft and ready for the call it is estimated that 750,000 youths who have arrived at the age of 21 since last June will register for the draft shortly. America's contribution to the al- lies' army reaerve which is designed to stop the Hun advance in Belgium, France and Italy will be at least 1,- 000,06e *tea by July 1. It will not alone be mea, however, but guns of a net , tripe. designed to cope with the latest terrors of Krupp and the Skoda pleats, will be brought into action. The limitations of the United States have been human limitations up to now. There are being over- come with a rapidity that is close to marvelous. The United States now has more than half a million trdope in France. Official announcement to this ef- fect was made by Secretary of War Baker. Ile said: \In January I told the senate com- mittee that the strong likelihood was that early in the present year 600,- 000 American troops will be dis- patched to France. I can not even now or later discuss in detail fur- ther movements of troops to France. \I am glad to be able to say that my forecast made in January has been pas-ed.\ Million in Emmen by July 1 It was learned today that Secre- tary of War Baker was characteris- tically meneervativo in his announce- ment. Figures ce.nuot be dealt with except in round numbers, but it can be said today, on authority that can- not be questioned, that by the time 1918 is half ever -July 1 to be exact -the Li:aeries* land forces acmes the Atlantic will exceed 1,000,000 Men. The troop rapvements of the last three isemehe Sad which will con- tinue (*definitely provide a chapter of military stridency which will thrill a imerionne when the details can he weleiluhed. The great fleet of rant tranigeorte created by the at - toy anti navy and added to by France, Great Britain and Japan, has mot the greet problem of the war - how to iatitke the man -power of the United Stote:i. Germany knows this. ts Mae oecr et of the stupendous German effeate on the western front. They fear the American man -power whiclt will tetra the scales through sheer weight of numbers, and they have tried, and continue to try, to force the eecisten before the million A merimns reach the front. This now will be impossible, army experts say. The following figures as to the total force, both In this country and in France, were obtained from autho- ritative quarters. Total number of troops under arms May 1. 1,900,000; number un- der arms when May mobilization is completed, 2,260,000; total number of drafted men in the service, 1,250,- 600. The 1,900,000 men now under arms includes 1,000,000 in the regu- lar army and national guard and 900,000 draft men already In ser- vice. These are round numbers. The actual figures increase the totals; 300,000 draft men have been called and yet are to move to training camps this 'month. According to official information, the combined strength of the regu- - lar army and national guard is in excess of 1,000,000 men. In the first draft 681,000 selectives were sent to camps and under the second draft 560,000 men have been ordered into the military service. This gives a total of 1,247,000 draft men called out. Add the regular army and na- EQUIP YOUR FARM WITH LABOR AND WAGE SAVING MACHINERY PRICES OF FARM PRODUCTS HAVE NOT GONE UP IN PROPORTION TO INCREASED COST OF OPERATIONS; FRUGAL FARMER IS THE ONE WHO FARMS BY MACHINERY AND SAVES THE WAGES PAID TO EMPLOYES. Between the high price of labor on the one hand and of farm equip- ment on the other, many farmers are in danger of taking the course of res- tricting their operations -a course that is warranted.neither by the present nor the prospective outlook. The measure of a. hired man's value to the farmer is \How much , net profit can he earn me during the seaeon?\ 'Whether or not it will pay to buy machinery falls back on the question, \Will it make my labor go enough farther to pay for the investment?\ Labor is high, and so is equipment. The advances in both labor and machinery cost, however, have not been equal to the advance in the price of farm products, particularly of grain. To tpake this clear take the case of wheat -the grain that, on account of federal price control, showe the Poorest present margin of profit. Wheat sold on the farm ha 1914 for a few cents under a dollar; today it sells at almost exactly twice the 1914 price. Labor is hard to get. So It is doubly profitable at this time to invest in labor-saving machinery. If the profits on a man's labor is $400 a sea- son, increasing one's acre -efficiency by one -quarter would more than double the labor profit. And this, too, can be worked out to one's own satisfaction. Consequently, the high prices of machinery and equipment mean little to one who looks at both ends of the situation. High prices all along the Rue are the order of the day. The profit to the farmer is today greater than at any previous tide in the history of agriculture. And the outlook is encouraging. The man who at this time equips his farm as fully as pos- sible with labor-saving machinery is taking a business risk warranted by all the signs of the times, tional guard strength of 1,000,000 men and the total is 2,247 000. The actual figures on the regular army and national guard more than supply the additional 3,000 neces- sary to run the total number of men under the next draft up to 2,250,000. Ot 1.247,000 draft men ordered in- to military service, 288,000 remain to be mobilized this month. This leaves an aggregate of 969,000 al- ready in service. The greatest single factor In the troop movements has been Major General George W. Goethals. His re- organization of the quartermaster's department went to every branch. In consequence, the movements of men and supplies goes forward in the eas- iest possible manner. Not alone do men travel overseas in fast trans- ports, but every supply vessel leav- ing an Atlantic port carries its quota of soldiers destined for a British or French port. General Goethals is co-operating in every way with the navy and this makes possible the convoy system which is defeating the submarine menace. Today Germany is using only her largest type of seagoing submarines and they are able only to get slow cargo carriers. The huge squadrons of destroyers that convoy supply ships and transports are do- ing wonderful work in combating the German endorsee craft. The British and American destroyers and submarine chasera probably account- ed for twenty submarines daring March and April. Eleven are posi- tively known to have been destroyed, confidential reports reaching entente sources say. Heavy Calls Ropected There is no likelihood of an in- vasion of ths second class this year, it was authoritatively learned. There are 2,240,090 men now in Class 1. To arrive at the available number of actual fighting men, the emer- gency fleet list delinquents and those who fail to pass physical tests must be deducted. Draft officials are con- fident that when all deductions are made there will remain in Class 1 more than 1,500,000 good fighting men. The first June call for draft men was issued recently. Provost Mar- shal General Crowder ordered the mobilization of 5.813 men on June 1. They are to come from all states except Nevada and Utah. The men are to be qualified for general mili- tary service and are to be divided among the several branches of the army as follows Engineer corps, 3,- 180; ordnance, 660; signal, 363 (col- ored); veterinary, 1,600; quarter- master, 110. Legislation raising the draft age to 40 years was discussed as a pos- sibility within a few months at a meeting recently of Provost Mar- shal General Crowder and the house military committee. Although Gen- eral Crowder made no specific rec- ommendations, members of the com- mission said afterwards that the de- partment was condhering a plan for changes. I1ELENA, MONTANA.

Write HENNESSY'S Butte GRAPHITE FIELDS BEING DEVELOPED EXTENSIVE DEPOSITS EXIST IN MADISON AND BEAVERHEAD COUNTIES Federal Government Is Interested in Development of Industry, Product of Which Has Many Uses; Supply Has Heretofore Been Imported From Ceylon. The government is deeply interest- ed in the graphite industry of Mon- tana. It is the only state producing graphite resembling that from Ceylon and is therefore the beat produced In the United States. Large amounts of graphite are required for the man- ufacture of crucibles, for foundry fac- ings, for dry battery fillers, and for a protective polish for explosives. Its most familiar uses, in lead pencils and Move polish, consume compara- tively little of the total output. DevelOpment Panda Just what the government itself will do in developing the mining of graphite in Montana has not yet been determined. The crystalline graphite for making crucibles should contain as high as 65 per cent of graphite carbon and should be free from mica, pyrite and iron oxide. It should also preferably contain a large proportion of flakes one millimeter or more in diameter, so that Rs fragments may interlock and thus be more easily bound together by the clay with which it is mixed. Most makers of crucibles prefer to use a mixture of Ceylon graphite with American flake graphite, for Ceylon graphite is more nearly free from im- purities and its more nearly perfect crucible fragments have a much smaller surface area than any pro- duced in this country, except that in Montana. Eventually the Treasure state may produce enough to meet the needs. New Industry Crystalline graphite is one of the newest of mineral industries In Mon- tana. The Crystal Graphite company, which operates a deposit of vein gra- phite about 16 miles from Dillon, made a marked increase in produc- tion in 1917. Numerous small veins -the thickest measuring 16 inches - have been worked. The vein con- sists of practically pure graphite, al- though here and there it contains a little quartz. Most of the veins show bladed crystals of graphite normal to the walls of the vein. More rare- ly the graphite in this mine consists of fibrous graphite like the beet Cey- lon grades. Other deposits of graphite in Mon- tana which have been prospected dur- ing the last year consist of flake gra- phite disseminated in graphite schist. These deposits are in the Tobacco Root mountains near Virginia City, Madison county, and in the southern part of Beaverhead county near the Idaho line. Both Senators Walsh and Myers are deeply interested in the mining operations for graphite, and are anxious that the field be fully explor- ed. German Substitutes Official dispatches giving accounts of the great Leipzig fair in Germany, said that the latter was largely an exhibition of substitutes. Dolls were shown with hair made of spun glass. Tea made from strawberry leaves anti herbs was exhibited, and said to have an excellent taste. Pepper was sur- prisingly well imitated, marmalades were made from vegetables instead of frail Soap was a combination of oil from vegetables and pumice stone, having effective cleansing qualities but lacking the characteristic of a creamy lather. Two concentric rings with small springs between, were of- fered for pneumatic bicycle tires. Canadian Wheat Outlook Wheat generally thr,ughout the prairie provinces of Canada is about seven inches above the ground, with even backward localities reporting that seeding has been completed. High winds have caused some consid- erable damage but prospects gereral- ly are excellent. Women in Russia • A Zurich dispatch says the Russian soviet of Sartoff has decreed tho so- cialization of women. Married wo- men hereafter will not be obliged to observe the conjugal vows.
