The regulations of the Department of Justice, prescribing the details of the registration, stipulate that tbe following Miall be required to register: "The term 'alien enemy' as at present denned by statute Includes all natives, citizens, denizens, or subjects of a foreign nation or government with, which war has been declared, being males of the age of 14 years and upward, who shall be within the United States and not actually naturalized as American citizens." The following applications of this definition have been made by the Department of Justice: "1. Females are not alien enemies within the present statutory definition. "2.

James Dttnlap Reid came to the United States la 1840 and settlec in ^yestern Pennsylvania, where h w»a" engaged in mercantile pursuit throughout his lite. Col. Reid's pvi. genitors have given several prommei. characters to American history. Se\ eral o£ the Reids attained disuneuoi in battles of war and victories o fteace. One of them was the celebrat ed Captain Samuel C. Reid, a distill guished naval officer, who. in com maud of the privateer General Arir. strong in 1814, engaged a British and fought the most brilliant nava. battle of which we have any record. On the maternal side Colonel Reid comes of the notable Henry family ol which Patrick Henry, the great orator and the late Prof. Henry of the Smithsonian Institution, are members. The Reids and Henrys trace their ancestry back to the old world. Janus Madison Reid completed his education in the Allegheny Institute. His first employment was a clerk in a general store at Buena Vista, Allegheny county. In 1365 he entered the sen-ice of his brother, E. H. Reid, at Broad Ford, where he continued as a clerk tor a period at four years. Thu, in brief, was the foundation o f ] a business education which in its s\ib- seqoent development embraced the successful conduct of a variety of important interests all of which were contributary in a material way to the business By the The enemy have torn some good-sized shell holes in this section of the I^oly Land.
