BETTER THAN ANY MEDIUMS
Mince Pie That Brought Vision of
Home Caused Wounded Soldier to
Long for Life.
Pie Is not among the articles treated
of in works on ainteria niedica, but
a recent incident shows that it may
have therapeutic value. In a hospital
lay an American sailor, for whom ev
erything had been done by surgeons,
doctors and nurses, and yet something
was lacking. Ile was homesick; his
mind was ever away in a little At
lantic coast town. One day, in the
midst of his bodily pain and soul-suf
fering, there flashed upon him the ob
ject of his quest, and he murmured
excitedly: "Oh, if I could only have a
piece of mince pie." It was not that
he wanted to eat a piece of pie, for
he was too il for that. Lis hunger
was for what the pie represented.
An American nurse who heard the
wish inanaged, with some difficulty, to
find all the ingredients for a real New
England pie. When she took it to
him she put with it a hit of cheese.
also hard to procure in these times,
Ro that nothing would be lacking, and
in the cheese she planted a miniature
Stars and Stripes. The poor boy
could ent neither the pie nor the
cheese, hut they contrihuted just the
home touch neelel to improve hi1#
condition. When the wife of the
American consul genernl visied him
Iater she rema rked upon th le 1irove
ment in his conlition, and he said:
"Two days aio I was in such misery
that I could have welcoiverl d''nthli.
Now I feel thIlt Am I not .

got to hang on."

Clearing Up After War.
On the ihanks of the Thames, less
than twenty miles from Lonlon, there
is an American town of the mush
room kind such as you might flnd in
a new California oil field. Its popui
Intion consists of more than 200
white inca and about 160 negroes. It
covers twenty-fiye acres which nine
months ago were fallow grass land.
The business of the town is to re
ceive, sor't and1( store war material.
