Adventure in the West.

Legends Also Popular.
Coblenz.Tales of adventure in the
American West are the favorite read
ing matter of the American forces in
Germany, and Zane Grey is the most
Strangely enough, Julius Caesar
runs a close second with the dough
boys, who are very keen about trans
lations of Caesar's activities in the
Rhine valley and the ruins of a bridge
he built across the Rhine, which lifts
Caesar's work out of the schoolbook
class and makes it a guidebook that
carries the Americans back mearly
Books which describe the legends
centering about the Rhine are also
popular, especially with the soldiers
who are musically inclined and who
attend the Wagnerian performances
given by the various German grand
opera companies which play in Co
logne, Coblenz, Wiesbaden and the
other cities near the Rhine frequented
by soldiers on leave.
Like Story Magazines.
All-story magazines which special
ize in adventures are more popular
with the American soldiers than any
other periodicals, and the American
Library association has been unable
to supply the demand for publications
of this sort.
With the assistance of the Young
Men's Christian association, which
aids in the distribution of reading ma
terial in the American area, Miss Ala
Weyth, who is in charge of the Amer
ican Library association's reading
rooms, has been able to make a gen
eral poll of the reading taste of the
army and finds that foreign residence
has not won the young Americans
away from fiction laid in America, par
ticularly in the West.
The American Library association
has about 30,000 books available for
Americans, French, Belgians and Eng
lish residents of the occupied area, and
also has circulated many books by
mail to Americans living in other parts
of Germany. Three hundred copies
each of 36 American weekly and
monthly publications, in addition to a
large number of newspapers, have
been taken by the organization and
circulated through the branch li
braries at Andemach and Mayen, as
well as through the American base

Turned Over to Y. M. C. A.
With the beginning of 1921, the
American Library association turned
its books over to the Y. M. C. A. and
is no longer supporting the work.
The mam library in Coblenz was
formerly a German officers' club and
is ideally suited to library purposes.
It has a great ballroom, which makes
an excellent reading room, and also
has sun parlors and large drawing
rooms, with many windows. Many
Germans have asked for the privilege
of using the library, but this has been
denied, as the army did not think it
advisable. One German told the li
brarian he had lived many years in
America and should really be allowed
to have books, because he was an
American "in principle."

HAVE UNIQUE RECORD
loWa Pioneers Live 75 Years in
Couple Married Three-Quarters of a
Century Bought Their Farm for
$160 in 1845.
Mount Zion, la.Seventy-five years
ago Daniel Reneker brought Mary, his
bride of a few days, to Iowa from
Ohio. Today they still are living on
the original homestead they estab
lished in the "wild West" in 1845.
Reneker will be ninety years of age
February 24, and his wife is ninety
seven. Their marriage'record and the I
number of years spent on the same 1
homestead probably can be equaled by
The couple attribute their long years
of life to the fact that they are God
fearing and believe in simple life and
Mr. and Mrs. Reneker's married life
of 75 years, in the eyes of modern-day
folks, contains few thrills. It has
Deen mostly hard work.
Reneker, when a young man, left his
home in Ohio to go West to see the
country. He returned in a short time
to get his Mary. Their honeymoon was
spent floating down the Ohio river to
the Mississippi on a small boat. On
landing at the Mississippi the couple
headed north for the cabin Reneker
had previously erected in the forest
wilderness of Iowa, near the present
site of Mount Zion. There they went
and there they are today.
The early years were spent in clear
ing the 160 acres of timber Reneker
had purchased at $1 an acre. Supplies
were brought from a trading post 45
miles away. Ground on their tract was
broken with the aid of oxen.
Five children were born to the Rene
kers. Four of them still survive. All
are boys. The eldest is Jacob, aged
seventy-two, and the youngest is Dr.
George W. Reneker, aged fifty-two.
The other two "boys" are Joshua and
Dallas Reneker. With the exception
of Dr. George, all the sons remained
near'the old homestead. Dr. George
Reneker left home at the age of
twelve. Today, he is a resident of
Falls City, Neb., and is the state rep
resentative from the First Nebraska
The present home of the Renekers
was built in 1861 near the site of the
original log cabin.
The couple have taken few trips
away from their home. The have
made several trips to Falls City, Neb.,
to visit their "boy," Dr. George,
and once went back to visit childhood
scenes in Ohio.

Only United States and Canada
Produce This Much-Prized
Product on Large Scale.
EARLY TAPPING IS FAVORED
First Runs Are Usually the Sweetest
and Therefore the Best Producers
Ten to Fifteen Trees Enough
Washington.Remember the days
when you went to the maple sugar
parties? Well, maple sugar time is
here. The sugar and sirup industry
is American and offers good commer
cial opportunities. Only the United
States and Canada produce this much
prized product on a commercial scale,
which is at once a delicacy and a
highly nutritious article of diet.
Warm days and cold nights are es
sential to a satisfactory flow, and the
sugar content may vary considerably
from day to day. Tapping of sugar
trees if done properly in no way in
jures the tree. Trees have been
tapped for more than 100 years and
are still in good condition.
The maple is well up among the
leaders in the American Forestry asso
ciation's vote for a national tree.
Early Tapping Is Favored.
Tap early in the season, says a gen
eral bulletin, to obtain the earlier
runs,* which are generally the sweet
est, and therefore the best producers.
Makers have lost half and even more
of their crops by not being prepared
for the first run.
In general, the association points
out, the season is ready to open dur
ing the first or middle of February
in the southern section and later in
the northern regions^when days are
becoming warmwhen the tempera
ture goes above freezing during the
day and at night below freezing. If
the days are very bright, warm, and
sunny the sap will start with a rush,
but soon slacken, or if a high wind
starts the flow is checked.
A thirteen thirty-seconds of an inch
(13-32 inch) bit is often used. Its di
rection should be slightly upward in
to the tree, the slant allowing the
hole to drain readily. With an or
dinary tree the' hole should not be
over one and a half to two inches
deep at the best.
Apparatus for sirup and sugar
making does not necessarily repre
sent a large outlay. A number of sap
spouts, either wooden or metal, are
needed. The sirup is usually gather
ed in buckets.
From ten to fifteen trees usually
will yield enough sirup for family
use to make tapping worth while, and
in many cases will afford a surplus
which can be sold at a remunerative
price. The flow of sap depends upon
the age, condition and habit of
growth of the trees, also upon the
character of the weather and con
dition of the soil during the sap-flow
Figures as to Yields.
In a good season a tree fifteen
inches in diameter will yield suffi
cient sap to make from one to Six
quarts of sirup, which in turn can be
concentrated into two to ten pounds
of sugar. Larger trees under the
same conditon will produce corre
spondingly large yields of sirup and
sugar. All hard maple trees, eight
inches or more in diameter, may be
safely and profitably tapped for sirup
and sugar production.
This industry is not confined to cir
cumscribed areas in New England
and New York. There are many "sug
ar bushes" throughout eastern and
northeastern United States and south
to include North Carolina and Tennes

Official Report From Berlin Declares
That Middle-Class Struggle for
Existence Is HopelessSugar
n VPWWI nncnca.
Washington.A report received here
through ofllcial channels from Berlin
outlines by comparative tables of
prices of essential commodities in 1914
and 1920 the tdvance in the cost of
living in Germany since the outbreak
of the European war.
According to the figures, the cost of
living for an unmarried clerk living
away from home has risen from
marks a month in 1914 to 500 marks
I The actual cost of the essential ar
ticles of food for a family of four at
present is estimated at 650 marks a
Clothing Out of Question.
Clothing, the report says, is impos
sible to purchase at present prices. A
suit which in 1914 cost 80 marks is
now reported to sell for 1,000 marks, a
price increase of 1,150 per cent. The
cost of shoes has increased over 1,000
per cent. Shoes which in 1914 sold at
15 marks a pair are now bringing 175
marks. Men's shirts which could for
merly be bought for 7% marks each
are now being sold for 95 marks, a rise
of 1,166 per cent.
Similar price increases prevail for
all essential commodities, the increases
ranging from 225 per cent for electric
current to 1,556 per cent for soap| a
piece of soap which before the war
cost 30 pfennigs now selling for 5
The increase in the cost of food es
sentials, according to the figures given
in the report, is even more startling.
The cost of eggs has risen 4,066 per
cent, one egg now .costing 2% marks.
Lard comes next, with a percentage
increase of 3,733. Bice, cereals, butter
and bacon have increased in price
more than 2,000 per cent.
Sugar Increases Least.
The article of food which has in
'creased least in price since 1914 Is
sugar, which has gone up the compar
atively small amount of 316 per cent.
Before the war sugar sold in Germany
for 25 pfennigs a pound. It now
brings, the report says, 1.04 marks.
Milk also has retained a low cost In
comparison with the tremendous in
creases prevailing in most commodi
ties. Its cost has risen 320 per cent.
According to the report, the average
monthly earnings of the German mid
dle classes are only from 300 to 600
marks. Taking the needs as outlined
for existence, the report says, examina
tion of the tables gives some concep
tion of the present hopeless struggle
of the middle classes for existence on
the meager return jof their work.
