We fell in line and the funeral march

"Arriving at headquarters the bat
tery commander was the first to be
interviewed. This was behind closed
doors. From the roaring and explo
sions of Old Pepper it sounded as if
raw meat was being thrown to the
lions. Cassell, later, described it as
sounding like a bombing raid. In about
two minutes the f'Icer reappeared.
The sweat was pouring from his fore
head, and his face was the color of a
beet. He was speechless. As he
passed the captain he jerked his thumb
in the direction of .she lion's den and
went out. Then th,. captain went in,
and the lions wert once again fed.
The captain stayed about twenty min
utes and came out. I couldn't see his
face, but the droop in his shoulders
was enough. lie looked like a wet hen.
"The door of the general's room
opened and Old Pepper stood in the
doorway. With a roar he shouted:
"'Which one of you is Cassell?

"But Old Pepper roared, 'Shut up1'

he put his tongue into his cheek and

door, he stuck his thumb to his nose
"Then the sergeant major's turn

must have eaten him.

"That night the captain sent for us.
With fear and trembling we went to
his dugout. He was alone. After sa

of him and waited. His say was short.

LET US EAT POTATOES.
Someone is originating a new way
of serving potatoes almost every day.
They are the stand
by for all occasions
and for all meals,
this season. Be
cause of the boun
tiful supply, patri
otic women Who
wish to save wheat
will be more gen
erous with the po
tato. Because of the high cost and
scarcity of animal fats; deep frying
is not so popular as formerly, neither
is sauteing, for both methods take fat.
Vegetahle fats are still on the list of
admissable fats and they make most
satisfactory ones to use in various
ways ; thQy are not very expensive and
are common in the market. Corn oil,
olive oil, and many of the cottonseed
products are all ' good.
Potato Patties.-Select potatoes of
uniform s!ze, pare, cut ofT a slice then
hollow out to make cups. Let stand
in cold water till time to prepare,
then wipe dry and fry in deep fat.
The shell should cook tender in eight
to ten minutes. Drain on tissue paper
in the oven door ; sprinkle inside with
salt. Use these shells to 1101(1 creamed
peas, sweethreads or any other desired
creamed dish. Creamed fish or chick
en are especially good atnd( the shell is
eaten with its contents.
Yellowstone Potatoes.-Select large,
slootih potatoes ; scrub well and llake
until done. Make two cuts in the form
of a cross on the top of each ; take up
with a towel and crush to loosen the
poiato and1(1 let out the stetam. Set on
a hot n1alpkin on a hot plate. Place a
generous piece of butter in the opening
and fleck with paprika.
Oak Hill Potatoes.-Cut five hard
cooked eggs and five cooked potatoes
into slices a quarter of an inch in
thickness. Make a sauce of four ta
blespoonfuls each of sweet fat and
flour, half a teaspoonful of salt, a
fourth of a teasloonful of paprika,
and two cupfuls of good milk. In the
bottom put a layer of potatoes and cov
er each layer until all are used with a
layer of the sauce. Cover the top with
the sauce and finish the top with a
cupful of buttered crumbs. Set in the
oven to brown. Serve very hot.
The summer hath so many songs
That set my heart a singing.
Such gladness to her reign belongs,
For me joy-hells are ringing.
When robins carol clear and gay,
When brooklets dance along the way,
It's good to live-just live, I say,
With summer over the land.

Iamount of soda if the buttermilk is at

Beet Plquante.-Take two cupfuls of
boiled beets cut lnte cubes ; two ttable
sploonfuls of butter, twvo of flour (bar
ley) and one-half cup~ful of wa'tter in

bananas, scrape each banana to r
miove till coarse fiblers and lay them
side by side in a baiking dishl suitale
to serve them. Grate over them the
rind of tin orange and half a lemon;
mix the juice of the half lemon, the
orange and three-fourths of a cupful
of sugar, pour this over the bananas
and bake in a quick oven until soft

MARCH TO VICTORY
Courage is a matter of the blood.
Without good red blood a man has a
weatre heart and poor nerves.
In the spring is the best time to
take stock of one's condition. If the
blood is thin and watery, face pale or
pimply, generally weak, tired and list
less, one sho ld take a spring tonic.
One that wiH do the spring house
cleaning, an old-fashioned herbal rem
edy that was used by everybody nearly
50 years ago is still safe and sane be

ic. It is made up of Blood root, Gold
en Seal root, Oregon Grape root,
Queen's root, Stone root, Black Cherry
bark-extracted with glycerine and
made into liquid or tablets. This blood
tonic was first put out by Dr. Pierce
in ready-to-use form and since then
has been sold by million bottles as Dr.

Kidney disease carries away a large
percentage of our people. What is to
be done? The answer is easy. Eat less
meat, eat coarse, plain food, with plenty
of vegetables, drink plenty of water
between meals, and take an uric acid
solvent after meals for a while, such as
Anuric (double strength), obtainable at
almost any drug store. It was first
discovered by Dr. Pierce. Most every
one troubled with uric acid finds that
Anurie dissolves the uric acid as hot
water does sugar. You can obtain a
