"But—; and marines whose death occurred while in service and who are buried in national cemeteries, but the government will also supply them on request of friends or relatives to mark tho graves of any members of the above services who are now buried in private cemeteries throughout the country. The headstones for Civil War and Spanish American War veterans are of white marble with slightly rounded tops. The dimensions are SS inches long. 12 Inches wide and 4 inches thick. The inscription on this design is in raised letters within a sheld-shapcd panel. This is the design adopted when the government first began marking tho graves of service dead, and is retained for two wars named, and previous ones, including the revolution. The design of headstones for veterans of the World War is some what different. It Is also of white marble, hut is 42 inches long, 4 Inches thick and 13 inches wide throughout. The inscription is ’n V-sunk letters and consists of the soldier's name, the state from which he Came, his rank, regiment, division and date of death. This design was adopted out of deference to a sentiment for a distinctive design for World War service, but one not too strikingly at variance with those furnished for the dead of the nation » prior wars. Tho war department attends to marking the graves of members of the military or naval forces whose death occurs while In service and ho are buried in national come* teries, but headstones for thoso who are buried in private cemeteries are only furnished when application is made by relatives or friends. Congress recently appropriated tho sum of 1235,000 for the purchase of these headstones for the period up to June 30, 19 28, and while It is anticipated that this sum will not take care of all the unmarked graves of those who participated in all of th* wars since the War of Revolution to the present time, It Is believed that It will toke rare of all when It Is anticipated applications will be received during that period. orthingA r his WIST -just m 3 your own peace of mind—yoj| haven’t a thing in the world to fet from Nyda Lon ax.'*    His vol hesitated curiously between ‘he ti parts of the name, but Billy wag to# absorbed in wondering what ha meant by his other strange worAI to notice that faint, significant hesitation.    t (To Re Continued) Tn the next chapter Nyda Lomax Ie traps herself to T.
