UNCLE HARRY TELLS ABOUT A NEW WATER CAME
"Ever pl#v brill or nny other game
while you were m swimming, bov#!"
aaked I'ncle. •
"We h.nl a big rubber ball that we
played with in the lake where we wont
last summer on our vacation." said
Jimmy, "an.l wo hail lots of fun.
didn 't we, Joe?"
"Yes, indeed." said Joe. "What
ma le you ask. Uncle Harry; know any
new kinds of water games?"
"I know about a water game that
is going to start at New York next
week," said I'ncle Harry, "and I think
you'd like to see it. It's the biggest
water ><ame that tins ever been played."
"How big is it, I'ncle Harry f"
"Who's taking part in it?" in
"Well, the game starts at New York
with a review of all the players." said
I'ncle Harry. "President Wilson will
l)f there to 'look the players' over and
see if they are in good condition. Then
they will go out into the Atlantic ocean
and begin their game. The 'grounds'
where the big ships will be played ex
tend from Nantucket island, which is
oft' the southern coast of Massachusetts,
to M.ntauk Fomt. which is on the tip
end >if l.oug island. New York."
Joe and Jiuimv understood every
word t tat I'ncle Harrv had said and
yet they couldn't tell what he was
talking aboi.t. I'ncle Harry saw that
the boys weie.pu//led, an l began laugh
"Whats the matter, fellows?" ho
said, a moment later. "1 don't sun
pose yi u ever heard of n water game
as big as tmis one. have you! Well, I
am n <t 'making up' this story; every
word of it is true. What I've !>een
speaking of is the big 'war game' of
the I'nited State* navy. The players
ire all the warships' in the North At
lantic fleet. They include all kinds of
battleships, or dreadnoughts as they are
called nowadays; cruisers, which are
vurshr s that carry smaller guns and
can travel faster than dreadnoughts;
tor[H?do lv>.;t destroyers, submarines
and other snips that carry supplies for
the warships. Altogether there will be
about eighty ships."'
"What is the game these warships
play!" asked Jiimny.
"I suppose you might call it 'At
tacking New- York," said I'ncle Harry.

Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey
is an absolutely pure tonic stimulant which should be in every home. It is made
from sound grain thoroughly malted, including barley the most expensive grown.
Related refiuings, or distillations, are resorted to'in order that injurious bv-
Jtroduets may be removed. This leaves only the sound wholesome soul of the
grain which gives to Duffy's the healthful benefit so necessary for medical use
That's why it helps improve the appetite and digestion, aids in making new rich
blood, assists in rebuilding wornoi.t tissues and feeding starved nerves. It's a
medicine for all mankind which has stood the test for generations, and to-dav

"Will .the ships fire any shots?"
"No. indeed," said I'ncle Harry.
"The warships have just finished sev
eral weeks of target practice off the
coast of Cuba, and this 'war game'j
that will start next week will consist j
of scouting and cruising and trying to j
outwit 'the enemy.' "
"Who*B ' the 'enemy?' " asked
"Some of our own American ships,"!
explained I'ncle Harry. "The bigj
fleet is divided into two parts. One
part of the fleet is ordered to guard j
New York and the other part becomes
'the enemy.' It is the object of the j
'enemy' ships to get near enough to •
New York to fire shots into the city; |
and it is the object of the guarding
•fleet to discover the ships of 'the
enemy' before they get near to New
"In working out the moves in the
game the oflicers of the warships on i
both sides learn many important lessons |
about handling their vessels. In a|
word, the 'war game' is what you j
might call genuine practice for our
warships. The oflicers learn many 1
things thiit would make it easier to
defend our seacoasts in case of war."!
"Is our country likely to have war
soon?" asked Joe.
"Not otu 1 chance in a thousand,''!
said I'ncle Harry, "and I hope there
ne\er will lie another war anywhere."
"Then why do the ships play this j
i'war game?'" asked Jimmy.
"For the same reason that the city ,
liiwmen a.e trained and given tests in
fighting tiros." explained Uncle Harry.
"The purpose of a lire engine is to pre
vent small fires from growing into big
lires. But if the firemen weren't
trained and experienced, the tire engines |
aud hook and ladders wouliln't be worth |
the steel and wood they are made of.
The purpose of the United States nav_\
is to protect our country in case of
trouble. But if the sailors, gunners
and oflicers are not trained and experi
enced. all the warships in the navy
wouldn't be worth their weight in scrap
iron. Our -ountry doesn't want to, j
aud woudn't have any right to, go out
and start a real war. just to get train
ing for its navy. So target practice i
and the 'war game' are the only ways
that the sailors and oflicers can get any
thing like genuine experiet.ee.''

Why Farmers Buy Automobile!
An investigation by "Farm Life,"
covering seven counties in southwestern
Indiana, shows that twice as many
cars are being sold this year, as com
pared with last, and that about 75 per
cent, of the machines going out this
season are being sold to farmers.
The investigation seems thorough j
enough to establish a basis for the
whole country. The licenses issued by
the State were first considered, run
ning about 64,000, against 36,000 for
the same' in 1914. The dealers
were interviewed, as well as more than
seven hundred farmers.
"Farm Life" declares that not only
are average farmers buying machines,
but that every fourth or fifth man in
terviewed, :f he had no car, is planning j
to buy .one—this year or next —if his |
crops and his live stock ventures turn
out according to his reasonable hopes.
Is this unu.sual investment in auto
mobiles by farmers a sign of prosper
It is attributed by "Farm Life"
largely to the decrease in the price of
machines, and the need felt by the
farmer for a time-saring and pleasure
giving veh'clc. In no instance was it
found that the farmers neglected their
flocks and fields to go joy-riding; on
the contrary, the machine owners were
prosperous ind happy.
A machine helps to keep the*boys
and girls on the farm, it does away with
the loneliness of rural life by making a
suburbanite of its owner, and puts the
it reaches so many homes. ' ilP^37
