GONDRECOURT, France, Feb.
20.—(Special by mail).—The 25,-
351 men of the Eighty-eighth di-
vision were paid $550,000 or 3,000-
000 frances on January's pay roll.
They were all payl by Feby. 8.
This is an average of a little less
,than $22 or 118 francs per man.
Of this, it is estimated that the
men will spend 60 per ccnt, $13 or
60 francs per man—with French
1 merchants. That is, about $230,-
000 or 2,000„000 francs will be
spent in the Gondrecourt area by
| This estimated amount docs not
| include what the 1,100 officers of
the division will spend. They
draw about $125,000 a month, af-
ter all allottments, etc., are .taken
out. It is estimated that they
spend practically the same propor-
tion as the enlisted men.
Estimated statistics from the
records of the divisional paying
figures as the present rate.
This savings streak is shown by
the increased number taking ad- j
vantage of the savings system of
the army. Soldiers can deposit
money with the government at 4
per cent, the total to be paid when
they sre discharged. During the I
first week in February more than
$3,000 was deposited with Major
Mears. The best previous month-
ly record was only about $2,000.
Another indication of the thrift-
iness of the men is shown by the
money order department of the
post office. One man is kept busy
all day long making out orders
which range from a few to several
During the first eight days of
February nearly $13,000 was sent
home by the men. This is a new
record for a like period of time.
On Feb. 3d, orders for $3,218.66
were made out.
t Many of the men, who received
money orders from the folks at
witliin their pay and are not spend
ing so much.
Most of the money being spent
is for souvenirs. French articles
are not so much in favor as they
were as the men are now able to
secure many war souvenirs like
shell vases, guns, helmets, etc.
These are being shipped home by
the truckload every day.
French mechanics are turning
their energy into making vases,
ink stands, reading lamps and oth-
er useful as well as omatmental
souvenirs. These the boys are ,
purchasing with a free hand.

Use this famous coal in your furnace,
stoves, and especially in your kitchen range—
l>?cause it's even-burning quality makes it
ideal for cooking and baking. It never clogs
up your grate with cinders, and burns to a
fine ash. It's just good, clean, solid, pure
coal. The price is a little higher per ton—a
whole lot lower by the month.

It has come to my atten-
tion that some subscribers
are paying boys that call
at the homes of the people
and say they are collecting
for the Transcript, where
i they have not been author-
j ized to do so. To save con-
: fusion and keep the ac-
| counts of the subscribers
| correct, I have taken the
j matter into my own hands
| and will make all collec-
tions except on the west
side of Main, beginning

ing north to and including
Daws St. which district Mr.
Clarence Hamilton is auth-
orized to collect from sub-
scribers living in that part
of town, outside of the dis-
trict just mentioned all
subscribers otherwise in
the city are warned not to
pay any boy.
We are publishing this as
a matter of protection to
you as well as to ourselves.
Boys found collecting who
are not authorized to do so
will be prosecuted to the full
extent of the law.
