Women in official society circles met hero tho other day and discussed tho national capital's complex calling system with a vlow to evolving a simpler and more satisfactory method of exchange of tho formal tary of state; Mrs. White, wife of the chief Justlco of the Supremo court, wives of cabinet officers and others. Mrs. Flotcher voiced the sentiment of those present by declaring tho necessity for a simpler calling system wvs Imperative. Everybody, Bhe said, wants to return every call that Is mndo upon them, but there Is a limit of hours In tho day and days In tho week. "On her first afternoon nt home," said Mrs. Fletcher, "Mrs. Marshall had a thousand calls and they have nveraged botween 300 and BOO each Wednesday Blnco Her Blncero effort to return every call has been tho comment and admiration of all Washington society, but how can anybody return In person several thousand calls in one season? Mrs. Marsall's experience Is in greater or less degroe duplicated by everjy official hostess In Washington." Tho question of simplifying formal calling in Washington has been grow ing pioro acute during the last ten years, but this mooting was tho first at tempt at simplification. American Youth Scramble for Places in Navy IT takes a "jimmy" these days to break Into tho United States navy as a plain, ordinary seaman; a stick of dynamltp is necessary to get in as an apprentice or yeoman. Tho navy dopartmdnt and Its recruiting stations havo "waiting Hats" containing hundreds of names of young, husky yotlths "hank ering" to go to sea. Tho full, active membership of tho navy Is limited by law to 51,500 men, and there are that many enlisted men now on tho pay rolls. For tho first timo since tho Civil war the full quota of men allowod by law has been en listed. The bars as to fitness have not been let down, and no men with physical or mental defects have been enlisted, but there has been good advertising. Tho tnles of tho cruises and tho details of tho chances for obtaining an education, Bent out In pamphlet form, havo swelled tho ranks so that tho bars had to be put up. Tho greatest number of monthly enlistments, except in war timo, was made in tho last six months slnco Secretary Daniels began his revolutionary reforms In tho navy. Perhaps tho chief cause for tho great Influx of fine, hardy young men Into tho naval service In tho last few months was tho recent Mediterranean crulso of the, great Atlantic fleet. This crulso wan a regular pleasuro trip for tho young seamen, and It was Intended that it should be such by tho navy department. Long stops woro mado at all tho prlnclpnl cities on tho Mediterranean, whero shore leavo was given. At tho different seaports tho American sailors wero entertained In lavish s'tylo by naval and civic organizations, and In every way Bhown a gen oral good time. x Tales of cruises contained in letters sent back to friends from foreign ports also fire tho Imagination of young, friends "back home." For instance tho recruits at tho Chicago training station wero recently sent overland to Bremerton, Wash. They were allowed a stop-over at Yollowstono park, and other Interesting places. Soon after arriving nt Bremerton they wero assigned to tho cruiser Now Orleans, which sailed for Mexican waters. On Its trip south tho cruiser stopped at San Francisco, whore shoro leave was given to tho youngsters. Now it is reported that as soon as tho Mexican trouble is settled the Now Orleans will sail for tho Orient. Discuss the Increasing Scarcity of Army Horses THERE has been recently a discussion going on among tho army and navy men on tho increasing scarcity of army horses. Tho army quartermasters, who have to do with the purchasing of horses for military establishments, say that there is really an alarming scar (I'M HOT CWttY il,.

If there wero to como an emorgency calling for a largo number of horses tho war department would havo great difficulty In getting them. It Is said that one reason for tho scarcity of horses is tho falling off of tho product of thoso who aro raising horses. It Is unofficially declared that tho Increased uso of automobiles has bad its influence on tho rearing of horses, desplto tho assertions to tho contrary. The motor truckc also sorlously affect tho market for draft animals, but that has to do mostly with tho mulo, so far as tho army is concerned. Tho mulo will always bo a necessity, dosplto tho Improvement which has been mado In the motor trucks. Tho animal must bo used with tho troops In tho field. Tho trucks will bo useful for supplying tho column In tho rear. Believes There Is a Good Deal in Some Names MR. LADISLAS LAZARO, representative from tho Seventh Louisiana district and successor to Arseno Pujo, head of tho now famous "monoy trust" in vestigating comraltteo, believes there Is a good deal in n name whon it comes to runnlnc for congress.

Recently was published tho fact of romarkablo winnings by Canadian farmers in sovoral events during tho past throo or four yoars. Tho latest Is that of Messrs. J. C. Hill & Sons of Lloydmlnstcr, Saskatchewan, who won In a hard contest for tho oat championship over Montana. At tho National Corn Exposition at Dallas during Fobruary, Montana oats woro awarded tho championship for tho United States. Waiting for tho win ner of this to bo nnnouncod was a peck of oats belonging to tho Ca nadian growers abovo mentioned, and alongstdo of thoso was a Hko quantity bolonglng to a Minnesota grower, who was barred from tho regular compe tition bocauno ho was at ono timo tho winner of tho trophy tho prise. Tho threo entries woro sldo by sido on tho Judge's bench. It would not bo pos sible to bring togothor throo moro likely samplos. Tho Montana and Saskatchewan entries were of equal weight 50 poundB to tho bushel. Tho Minnesota samplo waa somo throo pounds lighter. Tho award was unanimous In favor of tho Saskatche wan oats. A romarkablo featuro and ono greatly to tho credit of tho Ca nadian product was that tho oats, grown In 1913, woro grown and shown by thoso who had competed during tho past two years, wlpnlng on each occasion. ThlB, tho third winning, gavo thorn for tho third timo tho world's championship nnd full posses sion of tho splendid $1,500 silver trophy contributed by tho stato of Colorado. Tho oats which havo thus given to Western Canada anothor splendid ad vertising card, wero grown 300 mllea north of tho international boundary lino, proving that in this latitude, nil tho smaller grains can bo grown with greater perfection nnd with moro abundant yield than further south. In all this country nro to bo found farm ers who produco oats running from 42 to 48 pounds to tho bushel, und with yields of from CO to 100 bush els per aero. Wheat also does well, grades high, and yields' from 30 to 40 bushels per aero. Tho Bamo may ho said of any portion of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, famed over the world not only as a countr? whero championship grains aro grown, but whoro cattlo and horses aro raised that also carry off championships and whero wild grasses aro abundant ylolders, cultivated hay ant alfalfa aro grown, thus giving plenty of feed, nnd with a good cllmnta, sufficient shelter and plenty of water, bring about results such as western Cnnada has been ablo to rectrrd. Thousands of farmers from tho United States who have their homes in Cnnada bear ample testimony to tho bonoflts thoy have derived from farming in west ern Canada.

E HEADACHY MAKING A SPLIT LOG DRAG Anyone Can Make One to Coat From Almost Nothing to $2.50, Depend ing on Materials Used. A subscriber in Latah county, Idaho, asks us to give him a plan for making a split log drag for working tho roads In his county, nnd also wants to know how lo uso ono. Bays tho Western Farmer. Tho drag may bo mado of n log, say eight foot long and 12 Inches through, split in tho middle, or of two pleccu of sawed oak or other substantial wood, 2 by 8 Inches. Aftor n log ts split, glv lng two flat, faced slabs, boro throo two-Inch holes In ench slab, as shown in drawing; connect tho slabs, facing tho same direction, with threo otnkos or rounded 3 by 3a long enough to leavo threo feet of spneo betweon tho slabs after tho connecting pieces havo been driven Into the holes. Two or three planks can bo nailed to thoso pieces, nffordlug a place for tho driver to stand, and, at tho samo timo, strengthening tho drag. Uso a chain or strong ropo for attachment to tho doublo-troe. Supposing tho drag to faco went, and assuming that a chain is used, fasten ono end of tho chain to or around tho left hnnd outnldo con necting brace, lotting tho chain pass over tho top of tho slab. If attached to tho faco of tho slab, near tho loft hnnd ond, tho chain would intorforo with tho movemont of dirt toward that ond of tho drag. Tho drag Is run at an anglo of about 45 degroos, so that dirt can bo thrown toward ono sldo. The other end of tho chain must bo fastened to tho face of tho front slab near whero tho right hand connecting ploco comes through, and not around tho connecting pleco, as It la in tho Illustration. Shoo about threo feet of tho bottom edgo (right hand sldo) of tho front slab with a piece of iron or stool of th.e right length, about threo inchos wldo and a half inch thick, with ono edge sharp or hoveled. Put it on socuroly, letting tho sharp edgo project about half an inch below the edgo of tho slab. This Bhoo will enablu-tho drag hotter to shave tho surfaca and cut down tho hard rldgos which nro usually mot on roads that havo not beon kept emooth.

Roads should bo drgggod 10 or 12 times a year. Tho time Is after each soaking rain, bo that the drag will form a smooth mud coat on tho sur face. When tho frost Is leaving tho ground is an excellent timo; tho drag should bo lit use from then until win ter. Tho work does not Interfere with ordinnry farming operations, as whon It iti tho right time to drag tho soil Is too wet or the conditions ununited for many kinds of field work. It Is diffi cult to Invent a good oxcuso for not dragging. Used at tho right timo and with proper frequency on practically all types of earthy soils and thoso of tho clayey or rolling sections, the drag will make roads smooth, hard and con vex tho threo fundamental character istics of an Ideal dirt road. Tho pro ceas will form a sort of shell or casing over tho surface which will shod watoi llko a roof, and by distributing trnvol over tho entlro area, Instead of con fining It to the center, tho shell will constantly Increase) In solidity. At thd outset, dragging cannot be done so rapidly as whon tho load haa beon Bhapod up by sovoral Bwcopa of the drag; after thl preliminary work, the job can bo done In hnlf tho timo orig inally required. Any boy und farm team can operato tho drag.

CHILDREN LOWE SYRUP OF FIGS l It is cruel to force nauseating, harsh physio into a sick child. Look back at your childhood days. Romombor tho "doso" mother insisted on castor oil, calomel, cathartics. How you hated thorn, how yod fought against taking thorn. With our children It's different. Mothers who cling to tho old form of physio simply don't realize what thoy do. Tho children's rovolt is well-found-od. Their tender llttlo "insldos" are injured by them. If your child's stomach, liver and bowels need cleansing, glvo only doll clous "California Syrup of Figs." Its action Is positive, but gentlo. Millions of mothers keep this harmless "fruit laxative" handy; thoy know children lovo to tako it; that It never fails to clean the liver nnd bowels and sweet en tho stomach, and that a teaspoonful given today saves & sick child tomor row. Ask nt tho store for a 50-cent bottle of "California Syrup of Figs," which has full directions for bablos, children of all ages nnd for grown-ups plainly on each bottle. Aav.
