that "facial reconstruction" Is neces

public. Usually these soldiers are th

But there ar only a few savants
. capable of performing these opera
tions, and the treatment la very slow
and tedious. As a result only a small
proportion of the "mutlles," ss the dis
figured soldiers are called, have re
ceived treatment and many may have
to wait two and three years before
their time comes for the reconstruc
tion. "rftk Maynnrd Ladda fitlse faces ar

It will have a chin like the soldier
had before h was wounded, and It wilt
run back to his throat. Then there

help to hide the Juncture of the niask

American soldier who sailed without orders for England, after the sinking of the Lusitaniu, and enlisted as
a Canadian. It is the first story by one of the American soldiers who went to France, has been a real com

Plant Food In Soil.
A cliPtnlcal analysis cannot hnr the
amount of avulIuMu ltmt fiI In a
soil. A chcinltft could, without diffi
culty, make an artificial soil contain
ing every elomrnt of jilnnt food In
nbunilimcc, and yet be perfectly ster
ile. Pent, for example, Is usually very
rich In nitrogen, but It Is locked I or
unavailable. To pulverize it und mix
It with lime Is to change It Into a high
ly nutritious noli.
Birds' Nevt Soup.
The birds' nests from which the fur
fumed C'htm'sn soup Is made arc built
by a cpeiles of swallow that abounds
on the coasts of Java, Ceylon nnd Bor

stance obtained from murine plnnts.
The nests are boiled either In chicken
broth or In milk of ulmonds, nnd the
result very much resembles vermicelli
soup, except that It U fur more costly.
