Ayhvard, and Ceorge Harding. "Are you having any difficulty getting a man to hold a .position long enough for a sketch'/" I asked AVal- luce Morgan today. "That's the (rouble with these battles," be answered, "and particularly with our Yank6," he added, ''They are poor subjects. They want action, and that's what they get. If we could only come to an agreement with our men and the enemy • to stop still In their fighting attitudes every time we call 'Hold it!'—well, we could turn out better pictures. But they insist on fighting all the time." However, the artists are now being equipped with small cameras so that they may. lake snap-shots of battles, using their pencils for sketch notes, Tho artists work,in various mediums —pencil, pen and ink, crayons, water colors and oils. Their pictures are being sent to Washington for exhibition all over America. SENT OUT 7 MEN. Local Draft Board Fille In Vacancies In County's Quota.

TopoUa, Kan., Sept. 12.—Secretary J. C. Mohlcr of the State board of agriculture has figured li out, that In the .curtailment of five of the state's greatest crops alone, the drouth cut down the financial returns to the farmers, in Kansas, an aggregate of $220 ,OUO.OOO —or close to a quarter billion dollars,—this year. Secretary Mohler made a summary ot the effect of the drouth for Senator Gore of Oklahoma, who, frilm Washington, wrote Mr. Mohlcr requesting data on which to base an agricultural bill. Since then Senator Gore has introduced" the bill In the senate, it provided for 1150,000,000 to be loaned to farmers to augnient. food production. • ' The drouth toll as estimated by Secretary 'MolileTT follows: 4,000,000 bushels of wheat 74,000.000 bushels of corn. 10,000,000 bushels of oats. 050,000 tons of alfalfa. 04,000 tons prairie hay. The quarter billion loss is figured on' the basis of a normal yield. What the farmers actually did lose In wheat was,;the seeding of 3,138,800 acres— seed, and labor. , ,, t • ... * Senator Gore wariteit, also. In know the most fensablo way to get the government funds Into the hands of the farmers. The recent seed wheat benefit -fund, now being loaned to farmers who have been hard hit by drouth, encountered a rough road for a while, the various methods devised whereby the money was to be loaned, did not meet with the approval of federal government departments and officials. A method, however, finally was adopted by distributing the loans through tho banks of the slate after Ute loans have been approved by tbe Fedej-al Farm bank at Wichita, tho bankers' to be refunded on the farmers' notes as soon as the wheat is planted. Secretary Jlohler in his reply to Senator Gore proposed that the most simple method for the government to make loans to farmers would bo to make it possible to distribute the funds to the bankers and let them make the loans direct, tho bankers assuming responsibility to the government for the funds and likewise that of collecting on the notes. It would be impossible, Mr. Mohler pointed out, for the banker to accept a note and pass it along to the government as security for the government loan, because by that method tho bank would retain no security for the loan, as Is required by tho banking laws. ALLIED COURTESIES. To the Belgians and Their Families Is Very Noticeable. (By Reciprocal News Service.) Paris (via Ixmdou)—'Belgians and their families got bargains in American and Italian foodstuffs, thanks to the courteous waiver of duties by France and Britain. Tho Belgians have an official shop, known as the llagazln Alimentation Troupes Arriere, where tho goods ore sold. There are several of these shops. The Belgians call them, "M. A. T. A.'a". M „ <jj*Sf It Is possible to got Italian Olive Oil in these M. A. T. A.'s when it is not easily procurable elsewhere. Canned asparagus from America costs 1 franc 50 centimes/about 27 cents.
