with the arrival of the report that a

In view of the death from exposure

fear that the boat still missing may

the coast as to have met with disaster.
One theory for the non-arrival of the

may have last their course, and are
drifting helplossly, waiting for clear

Great Britain Joins
In Investigation of
Loss of the Evelyn
LONDON, Feb. 23. England today
Jolnad tho United States In an inves
tigation of tho sinking of the Ameri
can steamer Evelyn olt Borkum Island
In the North Sea. The action was due
to a dispatch from Uurlln sent to the
United St-itcs by wireless una trans
mitted here by cable from New York.
This stated that Captain Smith, of the
l-.vclyn. had declared the loss of Ills
ship was caused because he followed
the advice of a British boarding offi
cer as to the route ho should uss.
Admiralty officials believe that this
julormatlon was given out in Berlin
In order to cause tension between the
United States and England. That this
was the opinion at tho rorcign office
also was shown by the fact that the
British minister at The Hague and con-

had reported any definite information.
Impatience as to the government's
delay in announcing definitely Its re
prisal methods against Germany 'Ls
growing greater dally here. The state
ment of Premier A aq tilth yesterday in
1 esponse to Inquiries In parliament was
asserted by the London nawspapers
today to be a step in the right direc
tion, but they urged an immediate
nvowal of the government's purpose to
place food and raw materials on Ins
list of absolute contraband.
Premier Asqulth's statement that ne
gotiations are being conducted for Joint
action by the allies explains the de
lay, but the newspapers urged that
England state her position without
waiting for France and Russia to do so.
"We are laboiing under a delusion
that Germany Is being subjected to a
strict blockade," says- the Mail, "while
tho very reverse ls the fact."
It declares that food and raw ma
terials are being imported into Ger
many continually, and that the arrival
of every cargo strengthens Germany's
power of resistance.
"Germans Are Dodging,"
Says Admiralty Official
LONDON. Feb. 23. Admiralty officials
today characterized ns absurd a report
wirelessed to America from Berlin and
then cabled to London that the ill-fated
steamer Evelyn was directed Into the
mine field off Borkum Island by a Brit
ish nauil officer.
"The Germans are attempting to
lodg responsibility for tho sinking of
tho Americnn steamer." said one ad
miralty officer. "It Is rldlculo'is to
think that an English boarding officer
would deliberately endunger American
lives to no purpose."

NEW YORK, Feb. 23. "The present

"The danger of a wheat shortage In
this country is, I think, remote."
Mr. Canby said there were contracts

MIXED FLOUR BILL
,SURE TO CAUSE HOT
FIGHT IN CONGRESS
Health Authorities Get Busy
Protesting Against Use of
CALL CONDITIONS N0rV BAD
Would Not Object, However, to
Use of Whole Grain Say It
Would Be Beneficial.
By JUDSON C. WELLIVER.
Thero Is going to bo a real fight
against th bill to permit tho adultera
tion of wheat flour by the use of corn.
Tho health authorities are getting
busy, protesting that the use of 30 per
cent of coin In flour used as wheat
product, even though It bo labeled plain
ly to show what It contained, would
make wheat flour a worse food than 1M
Is even now; and, If you will take tho
word of the experts for It, wheat flour
is bud enough nlrrudy. They say that
the wheat Hour of commerce Is plenty
bad encxiKb already, donatnrlied to tho
last degree In order that Its whiteness
may be Insured.
Bossy in the dairy gets a good share
of the most valuible nutriment out of
inn wheut. She doesn't mind its com
plexion; so the miller grinds out ubout
fifteen pounds of tho best food con
stituents from every sixty-pound bushel
i'i ..our, and It Is fed to her. Tho re
mainder ls not nearly so useful for
human food as It would be If It had not
been thus separated.
Parts Taken Out.
Opponents of the mlxed-dour proposal
declare that three-fourths of the min
eral salts and phosphorus contained In
the grain of wheat are -iken out by
tho modern methods of grlm.tng. To re-
I placu them with corn stuich would
maku the flour oven less desirable than
It Is now, and that, if we are to give
trust to tho people who describe present-day
bread us tho "staff of death,"
as somebod) has called It, would make
it a good deal worse than It Is now.
It appears, according to tho authori
ties who are girdling up for a big tight
against fuith'ir cheapen ng and debas
ing the wheat product, that about sev
enteen years ao the practice of mixing
corn sturch with wheat flour was pretty
extensively carried on by the Glucoso
Manufacturing Company. Corn as a
wholj cannot be ground fine enough tu
look and fe-l like Hour; but corn
, starch mixing was done on a consider
j able scale.
Tie it came the pure f od legislation:
I one act to prevent making cheese from
skimmed milk, with some cheaper fat
substituted for the butter fat that had
gone nwav In tho cieam; tho other tho
"mixed flour act."' to prevent mlxturo
of other cereals with wheat flour. Theso
measures were put In tVo guise of In
ternal revenue acts, beouse that was
the obvious way t) ext t.d the Govern
ment power to the subj cts: but It Is
vigorously denied, by people who had
to do with parsing them that they woro
pilrnailly revenue ai'is for Spanish
Especially is there antagonism to mix

ists say, it would hoop the i- . p
lnz as much as over for broad, while
gcttliij.' a much poorer article. It is
pointed out that the requirement for la
bcllnir the package to show the charac
ter of the mixture would not help, be
cause, most people never boo the barrel
or the sack In which their flour comes.
The bread appears on the table without
a mixed flour label, and tho person
who eats It Isn't Informod what he is
Would Need Inspectors
Furthor objection to mixing Is that It
would require Inspectors at alt the mills
to sec that the proportions were proper.
This would repeat the experience of
meat Inspection with the Government
pay In ir for the inspectors. As It Is
calculated there are about 10,000 flour
mills in the country the number of In
spectors would be a real expense to the
Government, or to the Industry.
Hut all this ls not the worst of the
assault on the starch-flour proposition.
It ls declared that If the phosphates
and gluten be taken out of the wheat
and 20 per cent of corn starch substi
tuted the result will be a flour of bad
nutritive quality, calculated, especially

SPECIALIST EXPLAINS CAUSE
OF STOMACH TROUBLE
Valuable Advice To Sufferers.
"There are many different forms of
stomach trouble," said a well-known
specialist recently, "but practically all
arc traceable to excessive acidity and
food fermentation. That Is why the re
sults obtained from the use of drues arc
usually so disappointing. Admitting fer
mentation and consequent acidity of the
food contents to be the underlying cause
of most torms of Indigestion, it notur
nlly follows that tho use of a reliable
antacid, such as the pure blsuralcd
magnesia whlcl. Is so frequently pre
scribed by physicians, will produce Let
ter results than any known drug or
ciunuinaiion or urugs. Accordingly l
almost invariably advise those who com
plain ot digestive trouble tn i?Pt
some blsuruted magnesia (notp the
name carefully, as other forms are un
suitable for this purpose), from their
druggist, and take from one to two
teaspoonfuls of the powder, or two o
grain compressed tablets, with a little
water after meals. This by immedi
ately neutralizing tho ue'd and stop
ping the fernientutlon, removes tlio
cause of all the trouble nml Insures
normal and healthy digestion." Advt.
when you tire easily ant
! nerves are excitable, vou
need medicinal food notl
drugs or stimulants.
