Peanut Butter Rich in Protein
Peanut butter, many people think,
is good only for sandwish filling or
for spreading on crackers and bread.
lt can,however, be used in a number
of dishes that are cheap, easy to
make, and very wholesome, accord
ing to home economic specialists of
United States Department of Agri
' culture. Moreover these dishes have
the rich flavor of the peanut with
out the pastry texture of the butter.
Food experts have known for a
long time that peanuts were rich in
protein and fat, two things that the
"body needs. Within the last few
years these scientists have also learn
ed that there are many kinds of pro
tein and that only those which sup
ply everything needed to make body
protein can he called perfect or com
plete. These complete proteins are
found in eggs, milk, and meat. While
the protein of peanuts is not com
plete within itself, it becomes so
when combined with that of wheat.
For this reason peanuts and wheat
eaten together, even in a dessert,
v reduce the amount of meat actually
Peanut butter, in spite of its name,
. is just finely ground peanuts to which
salt has been added, and particularly
when ground at home or bought' in
hulk is one of the cheapest foods on
, the market at present, considering
what it furnishes.
Peanut butter can easily be made
at home hy putting through a good
grinder fresh roasted peanuts from
which the red skins have been re
moved. Salt can generally be mixed
in more thoroughly if added to the
nuts before they are ground. The
machine should be adjusted to grind
as fine as possible. If the butter is
not fine enough after one grinding, 1
it may be put through the machine
, a second time. Many stores are now 1
grounding peanut butter of excellent I
quality on their own premises, and I
Hiere are also many good commer- i
cial brands.-Farm and Ranch.
Marking the Woman's Vote. 1
Savannah women don't want to 1
vote branded ballots. And you can't
blame 'em Furthermore it ought not J
he the fact that any man's ballot is 1
marked with a number so that any- 1
body afterwards could tell how he 1
voted. If he has a right to vote, let 1
?Slim vote, and let his ballot be not dis- ]
t?nguishable from any other men's (
ballots enough to discover afterward i
for whom he voted^-Savannah News. 1
lt appears that there was a move
ment on in Savannah to so mark the
ballots of women, in an election to be
?h?ld there, as to put the clerks and
managers in position to separate the
.women's votes from the men's votes.
The women "put their feet down" on
The theory of the ballot is that it
is a secret. To so mark ballots as to
be able to determine how this voter
voted or how that voter voted is con
trary to this theory.
It may he that, in some localities,
where the woman voter is demanding
? the privilege of exercising her right
to vote and where there are at the
time of registration and like compli
-.cations, it is desired to separate the
women votes from the men votes.
vThe better plan would be to deter
mine, in advance of the eloctions, the
qualifications of the women to vote.
As a general proposition, women's
votes are not to he given marks of
identification in order to afford op
portunity to distinguish them from
men's votes. Taking upon themselves
the exercise of the right of the fran
chise, the women are asking no privi
lege and no favors and no considera
tion' not given to men voters.-Au

Horse Eats Five Tons Per Year
On thirty -eight profitable farms
Jn 1919 the average horse ate in one
year 6,769 pounds of hay and 2,804
pounds of grain. One farmer got his
"iorses through *the winter on 3,125
.pounds of hay but fed 4,776 pounds
of grain. One farmer fed only 770
pounds of grain in one year but fed
10,811 pounds of hay. The farmer
who fed the smallest amount of hay
per horse fed an exceptionally large
?amount of grain. Many farmers
found that by roughing their horses
through the winter around a straw
?Stack and feeding a very moderate
amount of grain the horses came
through in good condition. As a gen
eral proposition, the farms which had
auch a distribution of labor that they
.used each horse an average of only
2.2 hours per day fed much less
grain and hay than the farms which
used each horse an average of 3.8
boura per day, the latter, however,
obtaining their horse labor at a
smaller cost per hour.-Farm and

When during the war the English
were facing tremendous odds and all
.'breaks" seemed to go against them,
they would rally to the cry, "Carry
on!" The allies took up the refrain
?and in spite of disheartening blun
?ders and sickening set-backs pushed
forward to victory. It was the indo
mitable spirit exemplified in the
words "Carry on" that won.
Today as never before we need to
carry on in business, in education,
in religious advancement. If these
I fundamentals are allowed to stag
! naate and die our civilization is doom
I ed. There are signs pointing to such
a condition in many European coun
tries. The United States, with one
or two possible exceptions, is the on
ly country that is actually not slip
It was far easier to carry on in the
heat of battle and glamour of war,
with the desperate chance appealing
to the heroic, than it is to overcome
the difficulties encountered in our
every-day fight for existance. This
period of readjustment, the chaotic
aftermath of war, is the crucial test,
trying the very intelligence and souls
of men and nations. Ali previous
achievements in business, science
and everything upon which our civ
ilization is Builded will not carry on
with the same spirit that brought
them through the dark war periods
of depression and despair.
In the business world, no matter
how weak and dull the market may
be, no matter how slow the collect
ions, without a determination to carry
on men will falter, stop and go down
in defeat. Conditions confronting'the
world offer a test of endurance of all
the faculties. We have reached a
point where to stand still means to
slip backward and to death.
It will be the strong and capable
business men filled with a determina
tion to carry on who will come
through the bad times and depression
of the present. He will be the man
who will marshal all his business abil
ity and training toward making every
effort count in going after and get
ting business. He will say to himself,
'Now is the test of my salesmanship
ability, my business acumen; now is
when I can show my worth as a sales
man and not an 'order taker.' I will
:arry on. I will redouble my efforts
;o get business, through better sales

through advertising, keeping my

tory is apparently within sight,

Nobody's boy, ten, raggedy "thin, as^
a whippet," but with au. attractive
look on his clean, freckled-face'that
challenged a second glance, stood be
fore the entrance to the "Greatest
Show on Earth." His intent gaze was.
glued to the va.st cloud of canvas that,
shut him out of Hie enchanted ground,,
the glory of glories. Like Peri before
the gate of Heaven, his whole soul's
desire spoke from his earnest brown;
"A\ant to go in, son?"
The question, which needed no- ie-1
ply, came from a big; kindly, jolly
faced man whose band was grippingly,
held by a little nve-yearyold chap- who,
was making his first visit to-a circus*
"All right/' lie nodded to the lad?
whose speaking eyes made other re
ply unnecessary. "Come along with,
us." The magic words- were the ses
ame that opened the- path, to- untold!
wonders, beside which: the Arabian
Nights are tame as Mother Goose
Then began the- journey through
Zooland, the little kid, and; the midr
diing sized Ad hugging close to. the
big kid who bad, with the flip of a.
greenback, become a giant fairy, to-two?
adoring, happy boys.
Such fierce looking animals with
long, queer names*, that no little boy
could be expected to. know printed on
their gorgeous cages. Such funny,,
homely, wise looking monkeys that
peered through the bars of their liber
ty lost caged homes with bored' or
saucy manner. Such, huge, hungry,
elephants that never seemed to get
enough peanuts, although an army of
llttle boys and girls kept them con
stantly supplied. Then such corking
ice cream cones, candy and drinks out
of long necked bottles, straw imbibed/,
ambrosial sweets to enchanted kids in i
an enchanted heaven of pleasure.
"Now," said! the big fairy, when-the
two kinds had oaten all they could 1
possibly hold, "we'll get our seats and;
be ready for the circus folks."- Three,
chairs in the second row-so little-five- ?
year-old could see all the fan-were?
bought from "de guy what stood'in.a-i
teeny pulpit all to himself," said1 the j
stray lad. and rhe big kid; with the. j
two little kids, sat down to. walt for ?
"Who's, boy bte you?" askedi the j
giant fairy, whose real name was-Do*.
"What is your name?" The doctor's;,
voice was very kind,
Then the band began, ti), play and}
there was no, chance for farther aues-. ?
The big kid found its. nearness rath*
er overpowering, but he looked ,at the
happy little kids and: he diflu?. care-If;
the noise did make him. temporarily (
?eaf. Its immensity seemed none, too j
great for his guests of honor. (
Finally* the music ended , in,,, a loud, j
explosion of crescendos, and the. band,
scattered to. give- place tp the wonder-,- j
fal ring shows. I
But first came the. grand parade of-,
all the circus folk in. gorgeous array*. j
that kept the two little kids dancing;
on their toes In sheer delight..
This was followed by the most; j
amazing performances that ever, spell-- !
bound the eyes of a kid. Such breath-. I
less, heart thrilling acts that made- !
life, for the little kid and. the mlddVog- j
sized kid, so. full of joy it: wa*,i akin> !
When the program was about, half' j
over. Dr. Curtis wag. notified; by. an. j
attendant that he was. wanted on the* ?
"Jim, while I'm gone, I want yon. ;
to take care, of little Carl. Tissure- 1
I can trust a bis boy like you."
"Yes,, slr, you kin," very earnestly;.. I
But when the thrilling, pony race,
with their monkey drivers, took the '
sawdust tracks, little Cart became a. >
serious responsibility. Both boys j
were keyed- to the. highest pitchi of;
excitement, and; the five-year-old, in,
a wave-of hypnotic ecstasy, bolted into,
the track before- the horrified Jim] 1
could hinder, instantly he sprang,
after the flying little body, while at-,
tendants, rushed forward from, far-,
away distances, men shouted, women,,
screamed, and the ponies raced op. But.
Nobody's Jim grasped his small:
charge and hurled him away from, the
pounding feet that struck the. rescder
When Dr. Curtis returnedj he-found!
his Utile son crying In the arms of a
motherly woman, and the. unconscious
Jim gently supported by aa attendant.
"He saved the kid's life all right,"
declared the circus man.
"And his life, too, shall be saved."
The doctor's jolly looking face was
When Jim woke up with a bnnd-.
aged head, In the hospital, his dazed
brain was yet full of circus glory aad
present surroundings were slowly e?fr.
"You'll soon be all right again,"
smiled Dr. Curtis.
"The kid. Was he hurt?"
MNot a scratch. I've a long score
to pay, old chap." The big fairy's
voice sounded so queer. "Just like m>
was crying'," thought Jim, "only big
folks don't cry." '
And this is how It ended. When
released from the hospital^ Nobody's
