ic Duty To Increase Number
"This is the time for America to correct
her unpardonable fault of wastefulness
and extravagance." Woodecw Wilson.
Extravagant use of the telephone is wasteful.
It is wasteful of the man-power and womaii-pcw
er of the nation.
Women are taking the places of men called to
the colors and it is becoming increasingly difficult
to get a sufficient number of competent women to
handle the ever-increasing number of telephone
It is a situation lor the telephone subscriber to
consider. They can help:
By refraining from making unneccessary calls;
By prohibiting younger people, clerks and ser
vants in their homes from using the telephone for
By reducing the length of conversations to not
over FIVE MINUTES; and
By always referring to the Telephone Directory
for the correct number.
This practical assistance will keep lines of com
munication open and enable your telephone compa
ny to give urgently needed service.

The fall nigs are going to bo wo;
more money this year than ever be
fore, and everything should b? dorse
from a financial, as well as a pc
triotic standpoint to raise as many as
possible to maturity. A pig now is
woith twice a3 much as it was whin
! poik was selling for r.me cents. Thr
feed given the brood sow wo! have a
direct bearing upon the pigs saved.
A good ration fcr the brood in dry
lot is: Com 10 parts, shorts 5 pr.rt,
bran " parts, oil meal or tankage 1
part. Ear cf corn may bo fed and
the remainder of the ration given in
I a thin slop twice a day.
Do not let the sow get too fat.
Give her plenty of exercise while she
is with pig. Watch fo signs of far
rowing and plan to give your undivid
ed attention to the sow at this time.
If one pig is saved which would
otherwise be lost it is time well
spent. See that the pigs do not
become eh'lled and that thev all findj
teats. He sura that th.? sow is
properly housed, that she has suffi
cient ventilation and sunshine an
good clean bedding. Plod lightly a
farrowing time. A guard rail about
six inches from the floor around the
sides of the house so the pigs can ge t
uurder it often keeps the sow from
laying on them.
The foregoing ration for the sow,
ii ico ary in a small pen winch ex
cludes their mothci but gives the
pigs access to it all times, will teach
the. "young pigs to cat and will start
them growing. Thrifty pigs can
ruisca economically, it there is somr
forage fcr pasture. Alfalfa, clover,
rye, or blue grss onwhcih to .start
before the winter sets in, will make
le pigs much more hardy. Winter
rye should be sown this fall for pas
ture during winter and early spring.A
liberal supply of clean drinking
water Ls very essential. In the win
ter it should be heated to remove
the chill. Pigs started right in the
fall winter easily. Keep them
coming from the start.
The training of bakers for so;-cice
at ftea is a novelty in tin merchant
service. It originated in the great
demand for skilled bn adnnihers on
the hundreds of new ships being built
by the shipping board for the govern
ment. Fundamentally ii was prompt
ed by t In requirements .f the mod
ern sailor's diet, which is vastly better
than hi-; sea-go!ng ancestors ever
dteani'd of having.
In grandfath -r's day a ship took on
her ;:v.ii )v of bread for a vo;tge in
casks, before leaving home. This sup-
ply was pi l:;st until the end of the j
voyage, though that might bo a year or
two. The bread was in the form of
hard biscuits. It kept fairly well
when dry, but often it got damp and
moldy, or wormy.
The old-lime American sailor's ideal
of dietary luxury therefore was plenty
of, "sof t." rivsh bread. Coupled with
that he bad daily visits of'pies and
puddings such as mother made back
in Nantucket, or New London, or Now
lied ford; but these be tasted while
at sea in fancy only, for bis solo des
sert, after his meal of bard bread and
salt pork or beef, or of sriuie" or
'salt-horse" hash, was a portion once
a week or so of duff, which one sailor
author of NO years ago ds ribod as
"nothing more than flour boiled with
water and eaten with molasses.''

lose nothing by exercising the privilege of conver

4 ' bonds should not wait until the last moment to
e2rcis3 the privilege of conversion, but should do
so pronptly. Delay will result in overburdening
the banking institutions of the country and the
Treasury Department by making it necessary to
handle all conversions at the last moment, and may
result in the loss of the privilege of conversion al
