duty they will forfeit their pay for the period
iiacitated. This is the substance of an order by
ttalT, pursuant to a provision in the army appropriation measure inserted
at the request of army authorities. The order applies ulso to the use of
drugs and to diseases due to misconduct.
Heretofore in the case of enlisted men they have been fined by sum-
mary court-martial for drunkenness which disabled them for duty. In
aggravated cases officers have been brought to court-martial and have
■uttered loss of rank or dismissal from the service.
Where no public scandal lias been attached, and where the offenses
have not been public or flagrant, no punishment has followed.
An officer disabled frrnn duty through any of his vices has been
treated in the military hospitals and lus absence from duty excused as
a matter of course.
By the new regulation the army will be brought more nearly to the
■dilution which prevails in civil life.
Modern standards in railroading, for example, are approaching the
point where harmful indulgences either on or oil duty are regarded as
cause for dismissal.

Photo shows relative size of Spanish and Virginia peanuts. Large size are
the Virginia, used principally as roasted peanuts. The Spanish nuts, small
size, are used for feeding, for the manufacture of peanut butter, for candy
making and general commercial purposes.
The Spanish peanut is the variety usually planted for feed. It lias a ^mall
pod with two small nuts in each pod. The stems prow upright, making it
easy to harvest them for hay. The base of the plant is thickly clustered
with pods, and they cling well to the vine in harvesting. Th.s is a grea
advantage The Spanish is the variety generally grown for making peanut
butter salted peanuts and peanut oil The Spanish variety is particularly
adapted as a second crop in the rain belt and is the variety usually planted
under drv farming conditions. Under favorable condition! it will mature in
S.0 days from planting, while the larger peanut require s 30 to 40 day. longer
