Give .children plenty of gur 'uga'r,
taffy and butter scotch and they'll have
little need 'of cod liver oil, shys Dr.
Woods Hutchinson In, Woman's Home
Companion. In short, sugar Is, after
meat, bread and butter, easily our
next most it ortant tnd necessary
food. Yotr#J'n put the matter to a
test very easily. Just leave off the
pie, pudding or other desserts at your
lunch or midday dinner. You'll be as
- tonished to find how quickly you'll
feel "empty" again and how "unfin
ished" the meal will seem. You can't
get any workingman to accept a din
ner pall without pie In it. And he's
absole:tly right. The only thing that
can take the place of sugar here is
beer or wine. It is a significant fact
that the free lunch counters run in
connection with bars furnish every
Imaginable thing except sweets. Even
the restaurants and lunch grills at
tached to saloons or bars often refuse
to serve desserts of any sort. They
know their business! The more sugar
and sweets a man takes at a meal the
less alcohol he wants. Conversely,
nearly every drinking man will tell
you that he has lost his taste for
sweets. The more candy a nation con
sumes, the less alcohol.
The Mayor of Berlin.
One of the principal requirements of
a mayor in Germany Is unqualified hon
esty, for in the municipal administra
tion of Germany graft in any form
would not be tolerated. To become the
moyor of a city like Berlin the ap
plicant must-have established his repu
tation for effiilency in governing other
German cities. His career is carefully
scrutinized by the members of the
town council who select him, for not
only must he be competent and suc
cessfully perfor-m the duties of his high
position, but still so young lp likely to
. remain competent for many years. for
a mayor in Prussia is elected for a
term of twclvp years and if not re
elected after that period Is entitled to
a life pension of half the amount of his
salary. After 'a service of six years
his pension is one-fourth of his salary
and after serving twenty yeavs two
thirds. Ie need not necessarily be a
resident of Berlin at the time of his
appolutment-in fact, the mayor is usu
ally chosen from the residents of other

Young Jack Tabbslhas only been in

is .not .a more enthusiastic sea dog In
the whole of his majesty's service, ie
recently made application -for and re
ceived the usual leave and .proceeded
to London and kis mother's house.
- Mrs. Tabbs lives on the third floor of
a house in Casnberwell, and when he
arrived at her address he stood in the
.doorway and bawled up the stalrs.:
"Mother, aloft there! Jack's come
home! Open the window!"
"Why, Jacky, my dear," eried the
old lady from the landing, "whatever's
w'rong with the -stairs?"
"Stairs!I" cried the weather worn tar,
with ineffable contempt. "What do I
know about stairs? Just you open
the window and lower a rope to the
main deck, and be quick about It!"
