SOURCE OF ENERGY
Wonderful Results Obtained in
Experiments With Fruits
COMFORT FOR VEGETARIANS
Old Fashioned Apple Butter One of the
Best Things to Eat, Say Agri
Genuine comfort for the vegetarians
and fruitarians is piven in a bulletiu
which hnfl recently been issued I y the
department of agriculture on the sub
ject of fruit an food, says a Washing
ton correspondent of the New York
Comparison is made of the value of
fruits from a nutritive standpoint and
their cost with the uutritive value and
cost of other foods. It is shown that
10 cents will on an average purchase
fully as much energy when spent for
fresh fruits and more when spent for
dried fruits tliim tor lean meats, but
much less than when expended for
wheat flour. From the data as a whole
It Is apparent that fruits are reason
ably cheap sources of energy iu the
For Instance, 10 cents' worth of fresh
apples will furnish 1, 107 calories of en
ergy, while 10 cents worth of iorler-
house steak will furnish only about
third as much vim, or 411 calories of
One of the best things to eat from
the standpoint of production of energy
Is plain, old fashioned apple butter.
Ten cents' worth of apple butter pro
duces iour limes as nuicli energy as
10 cents' worth of steak or mutton.
Such plebeian substance as gooseberry
Jam will produce twice the energy of
fcteak or mutton and nearly as much
energy as milk. Generally speaking.
Jams, preserves, etc.. are high iu their
capacity to produce energy.
The fact that bread is the staff of
life, however. Is Indicated iu the sta
tistics, showing that for 10 ceuts one
can buy tl.tioo calories of energy, or
more than can be had for this sum by
Investment in fruit, meat, milk or
The data published in the bullet iu
Is based on experiments made by
I'rofessor M. E. Jaffa at the Caloorniu
agricultural experiment station iu co
operation with the nutrition investiga
tions that have been carried on by the
department of agriculture at Washing
ton. I'ruil mill nl .ixl Fur,'.
. Dietary studies have -been made at
th California agricultural experiment
station, and it was found that a fruit
and nut diet supplied the subjects with
' amounts of protein and energy which
dtp directly comparable w ith those ob
talned by many other persons from a
mixed diet, though in general the quan
tities were smaller than are supplied
by the diet of the average family. "It
fdiould 1m Haiti," according to the of
ficial report, "that the persons living
on a fruit and nut diet apparently
maintained their normal health and
Strength, and It Is only fair to con
clude that if for any reason such a
course seems desirable it is perfectly
possible to select a diet made up of
fruits and nuts which, for long periods
at any rate, will supply the body with
the requisite protein and energy, as
wns shown by a detailed study of the
results of the California experiments.
In such a diet nuts were the principal
sources of protein and nuts, olives or
the expressed olive oil the chief source
of fat. while fruits, fresh and dried,
supplied the bulk of the carbohy
drates." The department of agriculture does
not go so fur as to conclude that a
fruitarian diet In general is equal or
superior to the ordinary mixed diet,
but it does assert that "fruits and nuts
should be considered a fairly econom
ical source of nutritive material." It
commends these foods in combination
Tvlth other foods.

BY DOG TEAM TO DOCTOR.
Husband's Heroic Journey Through
Snows to Save Dying Wife.
lown from the north comes another
fine story of human love and endur
ance that lends to the silent uortheru
places such warm human interest,
says a special dispatch from Winnipeg
to the New York Times. It is of James
1. Galbraitlv who brought his sick
wife into liawson by dog team from
the Imuran district, a distance of 175
Mrs. Galhrniih became seriously ill
some weeks ago. There was not a doc
tor anywhere in the remote camp, and
heroic steps were necessary. Securing
the best team of trained dogs in the
camp, he placed Mrs. Galbraith in the
basket sleigh and started early in the
morning. The first day out they made
sixtv miles. It was a fairly good trail.
The dogs trotted almost every step of
tin? way. The streams were beginning
to run water.
At Clear creek the water was a foot
and a half deep and 20H feet wide.
Galbraiih wrapped his wife in canvas
anil lixed the bindings so that she was
virtually iu a large canvas bag. Then
the dogs were given the lash and head
ed toward the opposite shore. Gal
bralth waded behind, but the dogs had
to swim and draw the sleigh and its
The old faithfuls did their work
splendidly and came out panting on
the shore almost exhausted, but soon
had their breath and were again trot
ting it down the trail, lietweeu Mc
yuesteu and Highet, the new govern
ment trail, cut last fall, was the course
of travel. Through the heart of a deep
forest this new trail passes, winding
among the foothills and a! nut the
gulches and creeks, and it was while
passu.; thi'i-ogli this remo-e wilderness
that the deep baying of a band of
wolves was heard.
The dogs scarcely needed the warn
ing of the anxious driver. The second
day out sixty miles more were made,
and that brought the travelers t. I -lniiuon
creek. From there H was a
t-'ood toad, and Dawson was made the
other evening. Dr. Catto is in charge
of Mrs. Galbraith at the Fairview, and
he says she has a good chance of re
covery. HOMAGE OF VETERANS.
Pathetic Incidents Before Unveiling of

As the parade passed along Franklin
street toward the Davis monument at
the head of one of the south's battle
tried icgions was proudly borne aloft
a bullet riddled battle llag, which gave
silent testimony of a hundred hard
fought battles. As it passed along,
fluttering in the breeze, a gray haired
veteran made his way to the edge of
the sidewalk and then ran to the head
of the column, grasped a corner of the
flag and kissed It. None knew who
the veteran was, but all understood.

Liord Randolph Churchill and I were
together hunting big game In the con
tral part of South Africa.
"Toward the close of a disheartening
day, during which we met nothing
save a hot wind blowing across thp
sandy wastes we traversed, suddenly
we came across the tracks or a Huge
elephant apparently a rogue elephant
as we noticed from the spoor he was
traveling alone. Following the spoor
we came to the sloping shore of a
sweet water lagoon, and there, about
200 yards from the banks, we saw a
regular Jumbo enjoying a big drink to
his heart's content.
"My companion and I had hardly ex
changed Ideas as to how we sbouM
tackle the monster when, the elephant
trumpeting an alarm, we saw the open
jaws of a crocodile arise from the wa
ters in front of the elephant and. with
a hard, metallic click, close down
upon the elephant's trunk. The ele

shoreward, drawing the crocodile with
him, but had not receded thirty ft

friend, materially helped in checking
the elephant's retreat. Strength aud
weight was, however, with the ele

stride, he was gradually making th

"The hindmost crocodile, acting n:i a

"The elephant simply blew through
his trunk the many gallons of water h
had just imbibed, and the foremost
crocodile, feeling a great and forceful
swirl of water uprooting his back teeth
and threatening to almost wash his
very tongue down bis throat, had to re
lease his hold, and the entire crew- of
five crocodiles fell back into the depths
of the lagoon, defeated and disgraced
