WHAT ABOUT LOCH?
Thorpe Lee, in the London Daily
Mail, cries: "Down with lunch." Tho
lunch hahit, he thinks, is a positive
curse. Too much is eaten at midday.
The result is that most persons get
very little done in the afternoons.
They are digesting their lunch. They
have not enough energy to use their
brains actively as well. If they
force this brain activity, they are un
able to digest. Mr. Lee is convinced
that the indigestion from which seven
business men out of every ten suffers
is due to the lunch habit. Lunch is
a dissipator of energy. It chokes the
furnace instead of increasing the
vigor. Mr. Lee's program suggests:
Lunch very slightly and quickly.
John Chalfant replies in the Mail
to Mr. Lee. He says that men are no
toriously in their best tempers, in
their most equable and reflective
moods at and immediately after
lunch. It is because lunch is the one
meahthat nature wants. Breakfast is
a mere human habit, an injurious
habit for most people except outdoor
or manual "Workers. Dinner is a
fashion of quite recent growth, an in
jurious fashion to most people except
late night workers. Children have
natural tastes. No child cares for
breakfast. No child likes dinner.
But every healthy child is ravenous
for lunch and so would every Wealthy
adult be but for the harmful custom
of breakfast. Men linger over lunch
because it is the truly social and ur
bane meal. At the breakfast table
civilized beings are taciturn or trucu
lent. At the dinner table most peo
ple, if they are not idlers, are tired.
The brilliant dinner table Is a fiction
of novels, but there are thousands of
brilliant lunch tables. One of the
sanest resolutions of the war time is
the usurpation of dinner as the sociil
function and chief meal of the day.
Follow the French plan. Mr. Lee ad
vances this as the golden rule:
Breakfast very lightly and quickly.
Lunch substantially and lingcr
ingly. Sup like a sparrow.
College of Agriculture Tells How to
It is comparatively easy, says a Col
lege of Agriculture circular, if one is
willing to spend a little time in car
ing for a hotbed, to have several
green vegetable crops throughout a
large part of the winter season. Or
dinarily lettuce and radishes may be
planted in a hotbed soon after cold
weather begins and they will be ready
for the Thanksgiving season, if well
cared for. Another crop may be
grown immediately afterward by re
charging the bed and this will be
ready by the Christinas and New
Onions may be easily grown from
seeds under the same conditions, pro
vided they are kept growing rapidly
and the temperature does not become
too high during the early part of their
growth. After the coldest weather is
past, if the frames are not needed for
starting an early spring crop, another
crop, or even two, of the same vege
tables may be had in the early' spring.
Another crop which may be had
in the fall by transplanting about the
time frost is expected is celery. This,
when grown in the hotbed or cold
frame, will be entirely self-blanching,
which is an added incentive to using
it in this way.
Any thoroughly dark corners in
the basement may be used for forcing
roots of rhubarb or even asparagus
at any time during the winter, and
parts of the asparagus or rhubarb
rows may be forced early in the
spring by building a coldframe over
them about two months before the
ground would ordinarily thaw.
Former. French Premier Aids Soldier.
By Associated Press
PARIS, Sept. 19. M. Georges
Clemenceau, the "Tiger" of the French
political world, has not forgotten that
he is or was a doctor of medicine. He
is, indeed, the son of a doctor .and
during his three years' life In .the
United States, he married Miss Mary
Plummer, the daughter of a physician
of Springfield, Mass. M. Clemenceau
Is at present taking the cure at
Vichy. He used to go to Carlsbad be
fore the war. A few days ago a sol
dier on leave was injured when his
bicycle collapsed as he was riding
into Vichy. The former premier
happened to arrive on the scene in a
few moments. M. Clemenceau ban
daged the man's damages, did every
thing possible to aid him and took the
injured man in his car to a Vichy
INSPECT COl'NTY SEAT ROADS
"Tell me what you read and I'll
tell you what kind of a person you
are." Thus runs an old adage con
taining more than a semblance of
truth, for it is indisputably true that
we become largely as those of whom
we read or with whom we associate.
The maxim might properly be para
phrased to read: "Tell me whom you
associate with and I'll tell you what
kind of a character you are shaping."
Regardless of whether we know or
realize the influence of others upon
ourselves, it is an accepted fact that
those close about us make a profound
impression upon our lives. It is con
sequently of the highest Importance
that such companionships be formed
following only the most selective con
siderations. True it is that acquaintanceship
and companionship are vastly differ
ent, but the former soon develops
into the latter and care and fore
thought must be exercised therefore.
Arriving a stranger in a strange city,
. Americans especially are prone to the
forming of rapid and often ill-destined
Like selective conscription, select
ive acquaintanceship means choosing
for friends those persons who repre
sent one's idealistic conceptions in
the problems in which one is mainly
interested. There should ever be
that striving upward and onward
among friends which moves toward
perfection for their own welfare as
well as the benefit of the community
Men and women of noble purpose
and inspiring personality surround
us daily. It is for everyone to look
well and apply saneness in choosing
friends, that those of right type and
calibre are selected. No more essen
tial question confronts the student of
today than this one. Like books,
friends are our constant source of
inspiration and comfort and, as some
one has said: "A friend is one who
knows all about you and likes you
just the same."
As we sow the seeds of friendship
today through our acquaintanceships
so we reap tomorrow the rewards of
well or poorly selected associates. In
the intangible as well as the tangible
things of life the best is none too
good. Such men and women are here
State Officers To Find Out If They
Are Being Dragged.
Road drag inspectors appointed by
the State Highway Department are
now making a personal inspection of
inter-county scat roads throughout the
state, to see that drag funds are" being
properly expended. These inspectors
were sent by the state department be
cause of numerous complaints re
ceived from counties to the effect that
the roads were not being properly
dragged .an dthat in some instances
the funds appropriated by the state
were not being applied upon the roads
at all. The inspectors are covering
the entire state, and will report any
failure to drag the roads at proper
times. Citizens living along the inter
county seat highways are also re
quested to notify the State Depart
ment if the roads are not receiving at
tention, as the state department is
determined to secure the" best pos
sible results from the expenditure of
the drag funds.
