About 200 women of Cape Giiar
deau County have? already volunteer
ed their service as assistant demon
stratcr through the county, or gj to
the homes in the various towns of
the county to demonstrate methods
of economically preserving food and
The demonstrator will be employed
for the whole year. It is estimated
that the expenses of the office will
run as high as $?00 or $800. The re
mainder of the expense money will be
raised by the volunteer demonstrators
who have pledged to contribute one
dollar each to the fund, out of which
these expenses will be paid.
Meetings will be held at .numerous
places in this city and in the county
in order to instruct the housewives in
the preserving of fruit and vegetables
and cooking of food with the substi
tutes now sold in the place of wheat
flour. A number of new recipes have
been inaugurated by the food demon
strators since the food administration
has limited the sale of wheat flour,
ami these recipes will be practically
demonstrated to the housewives by
the government representative.
In view of the fact, Dr. Dearmont
said, that many housewives can not
leave their duties to attend demonstra
tions, it was decided to have the Vol
unteer demonstrators call at the hom
es of these housewivs in order to im
part to them the new system of cann
ing and preserving. These volunteers
all women who have devoted much
time toward reducing the food waste
will either be instructed by the food
demonstrator separately or will ac
quire their knowledge by accompany
ing the government representative on
her trips through the county.

coriuty court! Friday afternoon was
headed by Dr. Dearmont. He explain

work of the demonstrator. Sonic of
those who accompained him were:
