Thomas Barrett. Jr., haa ben nominated
for chairman of the meeting in the Phln

TO IMPROVE ARMY service:.
Gen. Wheeler Makes Some Impor
Chicago, Sept. 23 lmportant recommen
dations for Improving the army service
are made In the annual report of the de
partment of the Bakes made public here
to-day. The report was compiled by Oen.
Joseph Wheeler before his retirement.
"At least four-fifths of the recruits from
this department," reads the report, "have
gone Into foreign service without any tn
rtnietlofia In rifle practice and many of
I hem without having any rides Issued to
them It Is needless to say that these men
are liable to he put on the drlng line be
fore they know how to load and dre their
rides, aside from the fact that they have
n< ver been taught to hit the object al
which they shoot.
The report also recoin men da that a
board of experienced officers be appoint
ed to revlke the course of Instruction at
the Infantry and cavalry ecbool. Some of
the teachings Gen. Wheeler says are not
udapsed to present usage. The report con

have found from experience tn the Phil
ippines that the quickstep was not tire
some to the men. I hove discovered thag

An Interesting time In point was related
by Ihe leading oculist of Montreal, a man
shies practice extended far outside of the
bounds of the city. One day a young wo
man came Into the office, ocrompanled
by an older woman, apparently the moth
