How War Affected Vital
Statistics Of Nations
A lowered birth-rate; decreased
civilian death-rate but greatly In
creased a eraue mortality; an in
crease of male births over female and
a lowered mortality are features of a
recent report showing the effect of
the war on vital statistics in Knglund
The liirth-rate was 20.9 per thou
sand living, or 4.6 below the average
lor the 10 years 1905-1913, and 12 per
cent below the figures for 1914. The
rcdncton was less than was expect
ed in the circumstances and compares
favorably with that in other belli.ner
More males than females are usual
ly born in time or war. The births in
Knuland and Wales in 1916 were in
the proportion of 1049 males to 1000
-females, against a normal nvcraRP
for the preceding five years of 1033 to
looo. This proportion is by far the
highest recorded in the past half
century. The civilian death rate was 14.4
per thousand, slightly below the aver
age for the 10 pre-war years. The
standardized mortality of males ordi
narily exceeds that of femals. I'p to
1NM) the excess was not more than 9
,-- percent, but 191fi, it was 32 percent.
The most remarkable feature is the
low death-rate during the first five
years of life. Of the deaths of all
ages, 41 percent were of infants less
Man a year old, which corresponds
to a mortality rate of 91 per thousand
births, the lowest ever recorded.
The general death-rate from tuber
culosis showed a further advance from
the high rate of 1915, cancer was
more fatal in 1916 than in any other
year, and cerebro-spinal fever contin
ued to be abnormallv destructive.
HOW PROFITEERING IS
CHECKED IN BIG CITIES
A systematic check upon retail
prices has already been inaugurated
in the Distric of Columbia. "Unfair
price reporters" are being appointed
for each subdivision of the district,
accordance with a recent recom
ijSk'tnlal ion of the United States Food
(Wniinistration in announcing its plan
control retail prices.
The ' Fair Price Lists" compiled by
the District Administrator and pub
lished scail-weekly will be taken as
the basis upon which the price re
porters will work. They are expect
ed to keep in constant touch with I
prices at retail stores in their respec-
live subdivisions and to report to the j
Administrator any sales at figures
above those quoted in his lists.
Names of the reporters will be re
garded as confidential and dealers in
no case will be in a position to dis
criminate in their favor.
Food Administration activities along
this line serve as much to protect the
dealer who has been following Its
requests and giving patrons the best
possible service as they do to protect
the consumer. Merchants, as a whole,
are eager to co-operate with the Foo:
Administration nnd welcome any ac
tion which will restrain those among
them who take advantage of the situ
ation to add unjustly to their profits,
nnd, under the illumination of the
Holy Spirit, seek to do only what we
believe to be in accordancve with his
will. As we study and aim to his will
we educate the conscience, and, es
cape the bondage of mistaken ideals,
of superstitious conceptions of duty,
and of artificial sins. He, and he
alone, enables us to see sin as it is
to measure it by the holiness of which
it is the very opposite.
KNIT YOUR BIT
As you're silting with your knitting,
(icntle lady in your home,
While a yearning thought is turning
To some boy across the foaiiu
I've a notion that a motion
I am making here and now.
Will inspire you and require you
To exclaim, "I'll do it now."
You had better knit a sweater
For a fellow in ISerlin.
Make the collar loose and holler,
So 'twill rattle on his chin.
K.iit it careful and be prayerful,
As you straighten out each knot.
He who'll wear it doth declare it
That he's hand and hand with
Knit it stronger, make it longer
Than the others that you kn;
Make it lighter, make it tighter,
Make the thing a perfect fit.
All creation knows your station
Is important to the game;
f!n witli pleasure take his measure.
Make it fit the Kaiser's trame.
Just surprise him, then advise him
That 'twill stand the hottest fire
And you'd better make that sweater
Out of rusty old barbed wire.
Be a pioneer and store home-grown
feed as if np freight trains were inin
nng or grocery stores open.
A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armies In Europe
IS THIS WORTH WHILE?
"Too busy", is the excuse today of
those women who are letting their
households run amuck. Never before
in history have there been so many
contpellng forces drawing the wo
men outside their homes. So much
lied Cross work to be done. So many
committees on which to serve. So
many hundreds of kinds of war work
calling daily for their brains and
One of the first questions facing a
woman who is running a home is "Is
food conservation worth while?"
Hefore giving the answer let it be
asked "Is the saving of human lives
worth while?" "Is winning the war
If it is, then food conservation :
worth while; for the program of the
I'nited Stales food administration for
saving food in American kitchens is
the only way to save the lives of mil
lions of people in Europe who might
otherwise die of starvation.
Isn't this reason enough to put
aside everything else we are doing at
present, it it is necessary, rather than
to say, "No. I can't follow the pro
gram of the food administration for
the conservation of food. I'm too
.lust a half million moro people
have died in the European countries
from starvation and famine in this
war than have been killed on the field
1-s food saving worth while?
Have you, Mrs. Housewife, time t
help win the war?
Providing he catches anything it is
mighty good luck according to the
ideas of the I'nited States Food Ad
ministration. Fish Lunches

cover it well. Fill the peppers with
this mixture, letting it fall in lightly,
and garnsh the top of each with a
slice of hard-cooked egg.

SUMMER TIME SALADS FOR
HOT WEATHER LUNCHEONS
A salad for the main dish! That
settles the yuestion of the not woa-
;ther luncheon. Surely your guests or
your family would like to sit down to
this: ' f
Watermelon cut in cubes and serv
:vd in glasses. Vegetables salad with
cottage cheese anc nut balls. Barley
'bread. Iliee flour sponge cake.
I H. re are some other salads which
ithe United States Food Administra
could be used as main
Cottage Cheese and Celery Baits
Mix equal parts of cottage cheese
and finely chopped celery, form into
balls, nnd serve on lettuce as a salad.
Nuts may be used instead of the cel
ery or with it and the balls may be
rolled in nuts.
Jellie Egg Salad
Slice hard boiled eggs and line a
mould with them, pouring in sulllct
ent chicken jelly to Oil the mould.
When it begins to thicken, stir gently
so as to mix the eggs with the jelly.
When cold, place on a platter and
heap mayonnaise dressing around the
jelly. Garnish with parsley.
Beet and Potato Salau
Cut equal quantities of beets nnd
potatoes into small balls with a
Parlsienne spoon or vegetable cutter.
Put the potatoes in mayonnaise dress
ing, to which has been added a few
chopped olives nnd chives. Dip the
hocts in vinegar, and dish alternately,
serving all on leaf lettuce.
CAMP KIT SANDWICHES
The urgent suggestion of the Unit
ed Stiites Food Administration to use
no wheat until after the next harvest
and to go easy on the consumption
of meat hits the old-fashioned sand
wich a stern blow. It Is easy enough
to seek patriotically when hot meals
are served, but when It comes to
week-end camping trips and cold
lunches considerable though Is req
uired. Sandwiches have won their place
as the staff of packed lunches, and it
is with sandwiches one has to deal
when wheatless, meatless lunches
are the thing. Women all over the
country have been experimenting on
sandwich combinations that "sound
ed as though they'd taste good". A
few more sandwich suggestions from
the United States Food Administra
tion may not come amiss during the
bread the fol
Apple sliced thinly nnd mixed with
chopped nuts and salad dressing.
Sliced tomatoes and cream cheese
placed between pieces of barley
bread. Eggs, boiled hard, chopped
and mixed with thick cream sauce.
Sliced cucumber and tomato, well
cups corn meal
cup rice flour
cup ground rolled oats
cup barley flour
teaspoons baking powder
',4 cup molasses.
Sift together the dry ingredients.
Beat the eggs, add the milk, the mol
asses, and the dry ingredients. Turn
the mixture into greased pans, allow
it to stay for 10 minutes, and bake In
slow oven from 1 to 1V4 hours.
The old assumption that cold corn
bread should not be served is gradu
ally passing, in the face of successful
trials at using it for sandwiches. Here
are some fillings which make corn
bread sandwiches delicious:
Chopped cabbage and green pepper
mixed wilh salad dressing.
Oil sardines, chopped so they can
Eggs, either scrambled, har-boiled
mixed with cream sauce, or hard-boiled
mixed wilh salad dressing.
Any wheatless corn bread may be
used with these fillings.
While nearly everybody knows how
close the people of Europe are to
starvation, few realize how frequent
is "mineral starvation" here at home.
Sometime ago the farmer learned
that certain minerals like potassium
are necessary to the well-being of his
plants. It has taken us, however,
much longer to realize that mineral
matter is just as essential to the hu
man body. Various kinds of mineral
matter are what is known as body
regulators and are found abundantly
in vegetables, greens and fruit.
The usual decrease of the use of
these foods in the winter may he
responsible for the general lassitude
experienced by many people In the
spring. They are starving their bodies
of mineral matter. To remedy the
deficient supply the body usually ob
tains in the winter, the lion's share
of the spring and summer diet should
be vegetables, greens, and fruit. This
year housewives will have an unpar
alleled chance to see that this is so,
for, thanks to the millions of war
gardens that have been planted, veg
etables and greens bid fair to be
more plentiful this season than ever
The following are two suggestions,
one a dolightul way of fixing spinach
and the other a tempting spring salad
Spinach With Ketchup Dressing
1 cup of cooked spinach
2 hard cooked eggs
1 small head lettuce.
Prepare the lettuce and chill. Drain
the spinach nnd form into molds in
custard cups of any available mold,
serve on lettuce leaf, with ketchup
dressing and garnish with slices of
hard boiled eggs.
'& cup boiled cooked dressing
' cup toma'n ketchup
1 tablespoon onion chopped fine.
Heat the abovt ingredients together
and serve on the above salad as dir
ected. Vegetable Salad
1 cup cooked beans
1 tablespoon minced ureen onion
1 tablespoon minced pteen pepper
Drain the beans nnd add onion nnd
pepper. Arrnnge in a mtnrtd in n
nest of lettuce leaves. Servo with
French dressing, about one table
spoon to each salad.
GOOD THINGS FOR
SUNDAY NIGHT SUPPER
Something good to eat which rtq
ulres little work in the preparation is
the prime requisite for Sunday night
suppers. Lt a quickly prepared but
nourishing salad form the basis of
Sunday night's food, suggests the
United States .Food Administration.
A simple menu follows:
Oat meal crackers
Cover a platter with lettuce leaves.
Arrange a circle of sliced hard boiled
eggs around the edge, the slices over
lapping each other. Heap in the
center two parts of chopped celery or
peas in season to one part of flakes
of salmon which has been thoroughly
mixed with ail, vinegar and salt.
Pour mayonnaise dressing over all,
and garnish with stuffed olives.
PERSHING WASN'T PROMO-
TED FOR 7 YEARS
For sevpn ypars nftpr his gradua
tion from West Point Pershing re
ceived no promotion, says William
Heyliger in Boys' Life, the Boy
Scouts' Magazine, for July.
Nevertheless, with customary grit,
he applied himself to master his pro
fession. He became an authority on
military tactics and was sent to West
Point as an instructor. He was there
when the Spanish-American war broke
out, and immediately applied for a
command. The War Department sent
him to the Tenth Cavalry, a colored
troop, as a first lieutenant, and then
his rise began. His troop went to
Cuba. He led it at the battle of El
Caney and came out of that engage
ment a captain "for gallantry in act
Next he went to the Philippines.
General Chaffee sent him to the hills
of western Mindanao, where the Sul
tan of Bacolod ruled 100,000 Moham
medan Malays who thought it a vir
tue to kill a Christian. The Sultan's
stronghold had walls of. earth and
bamboo forty feet thick, and was sur
rounded by a moat forty feet wide.

To reach that stronghold It was ne
cessary to cut a path through dense
tropical jungles. Pershing, with the
same old grit, cut the path. He told
the Sultan that the killing of Christ
ians had to stop. The Sultan laughed.
Soon there was another killing, nnd
forty-eight hours later the Sultan's
stronghold was destroyed. Within
(wo years Pershing had established
law and order in western Mindanao,
something that Spain had failed to do
in three hundred years of trying.
It was an exploit of determination,
of obstacles overcome, of never-give-up.
They were the traits that had
stamped him as a boy, and they won
him high honors as a man. In 1906,
in recognition of his ability, Presi
