High grade barley contains about i
as much protein as hard wheat. It I
furnishes comparable amounts of
heat-giving elements (starch ind fat) j
and its mineral content (bone-build

of wheat or more like corn meal.
Loaves are made successfully by

signals of the 120th meridian east of
Greenwich at ll n. ni. and 10 p. m. ,

For tlie purpose of sending time sig
nals, the transmitting clock of the Mn- 1
nila observatory ls connected with the J
Cavit? wireless station through the bu- :
reau of posts. Manila observatory time \
signals begin nt 10:55 a. m. and 9:55 U
p. m., standard time of the 120th me- .
ridian east of Greenwich, and continue
for five minutes. During this Interval
every tick of the clock is transmitted,
except the 28th, 29th, 54th 55th. 5Gth, I

Result of Sugar Shortage.
Thc sugar shortage has encouraged .
Louisiana planters to broaden the use
of pure cane syrup, which ls made J
from cane juice, without taking out any *
of Its sugar. This juice is bolled to a
point just below that required to crys
tallize it into sugar, and can be used i
not only for griddle cakes and candy j
making, but it is recommended by the
planters, as a sweetening for coffee ,
and tea; It is practically sugar in a '
liquid form, and on a basis of S cents
a pound retail for granulated sugar !
will yield economies of 40 to 50 per
cent, at a price of 4'i to 5 cents a i
pound for syrup. ]
Aged Tree Is Dying. j
The original navel orange tree, plant- j
ed 44 years ago, producer of the first
navel oranges grown in the United
States and parent of millions of trees '
now growing in California, ls believed *
to be dying. Horticultural experts
have begun efforts to diagnose the dis- t
ease that threatens it in the hope of t
prolonging Its life.
This tree, the most noted In the cit- <
rus industry of California, came orig
inally from Ballin, Brazil. It was
planted in 1S73 by Mrs. C. L. Tibbetts,
who obtained it from the botanical gar- '
dens in Washington, D. C. ]
