GOICK ' DELIVERY IS RESULT Fruits, Vegetables and Other Products in Season to Be Carried Mer chandise Is Hauled by Trucks on Return Trips. Last year producers of eggs near Vineland and Millville, New Jersey, had difficulties getting their eggs to dealers in New York City. This year, however, they travel direct by motor truck to the dealers doors and arrive in less time and with less loss from breakage than in other seasons. This community of producers has found the results of their experiment of shipping eggs by motor truck so successful that they are planning to extend their efforts to cover fruits and vegetables, poultry, and other products In season. Eggs by Motor Truck. Following a season in which trans portation troubles made shipments to New York City unsatisfactory the farmers sought assistance from the bureau of markets of the United States department of agriculture, and spe cialists on motor-truck marketing made a survey of the situation. This was followed by a group of producers agree ing to ship their eggs by motor truck end to bring the cases to designated places along the "route the truck was ito cover. A large commercial motor truck company, operating a fleet of .trucks between New York, and Phila delphia, was Interested and agreed to make a detour on their trips to New VYork, to which city their trucks had often traveled without being loaded, to take in Vineland and Millville. Lo cal farmers and merchants in these two towns agreed to give their hauling business from Philadelphia to the truck company and thus insure a full load for the trucks all the way from Phila delphia to New York. Capacity of Trucks. The trucks have a capacity of about five tons, and can take 200 crates of eggs. On the first trip only 150 cases vrere ready at the roadside and the bal ance of the load was made Tip of crated glass from Vineland and Millville. This -first load went the 140 miles in the record time of 15 hours with not an egg broken on the way. The truck went across on the ferry boat from the Kew Jersey shore, and the eggs were delivered on the sidewalks In front of the wholesale houses. On the re turn trip the truck hauled merchandise from New York direct to Philadelphia. Some of the dealers In New Yorfc City are offering a premium of from one-half to one and one-half cents a dozen ' for eggs shipped by motor truck from Vineland and Millville, be cause the eggs arrive In better condi tion and In quicker time than when shipped by rail. This premium alone more than covers the difference In cost of shipping by motor truck and by rail, and, in addition to the time saved, the motor-truck service is more dependable and gives better delivery. The "eggs, as yet. are not pooled, but consist of Individual shipments to a number of dealers.

J . Finding Help for Harvest. Kansas answered the call . for In creased food production. Kansas plant ed more wheat. Kansas knew, of course, that a tremendous amount of man power would be required to har vest that crop. But Kansas wasn't dis mayed. Uncle Sam called for more wheat. Kansas planted more wheat. Kansas knew that wheat would be har vested and that people In the towns and cities would go to the fields to help do It ! ,- And that is precisely how It Is being harvested by people from the towns and cities of Kansas. A literal exo dus of all the urban people hasn't been necessary, of course. . But all that were needed went and more were ready If needed. The state-wide campaign for town volunteers for farm labor service dur ing the harvest was launched at a Kan sas City conference the latter part of May. Representatives of the United States department of agriculture re minded all the co-operating agencies at that conference of the policy that department has been -urging since the beginning of the war the use of town man power for local farm labor needs during seasonal emergencies IMMOVID OKirOKN OTZUIATIOHAl swrSfflooL LESSON (By REV. I B. F1TZWATER, D. T.. Teacher of English Bible in the Moody Bible -Institute of Chicago.) (Copyright. 1918, Western Newspaper Union.) LESSON FOR JULY 14 READING GOD'S WORD. LESSON TEXT Psalms 19:7-11; Acts 8: 86-39. GOLDEN TEXT Te shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FOR rEACHERS Psalms 37:31; 119:9-16: Pro verbs 13:13; Isaiah 55:8-11; John 6:39-46-47; Romans 15:4. DEVOTIONAL READING Psalms 119: H6, 97-105. - I. Characteristics of God's Word 03-19:7-11). ' The Psalmist here sets forth six de scriptive titles of God's Word, -six out standing qualities, and six resultant effects. FIRST GROUP 1. Title: "The Law of the Lord" (. 7). By this is meant the fundamental principles which God as a moral being reveals to the consciences of men as binding upon the soul. 2. Quality: "Perfect" (t. 7). It Is free from omissions and re dundancies. It is perfect as a moral code, and it perfectly accomplishes man's salvation. 3. Effect: "Converting the Sou!" (v. 7). The practical effect of the law of God is to turn men to God himself, righteousness and holiness. SECOND GROUP 1. Title: "The Testimony of the Lord" (v. 7). It is the witness which God bears as to his attributes, and against man's sins. 2. Quality: "Sure" (v. 7) It is plain and infallible. We can repose in it our interests for time and eternity. 3. Effect: "Making Wise the Sim ple" (v. 7). The simple are those who have hum ble, open and teachable minds. THIRD GROUP 1. Title: "The Statutes of the Lord" (v 8). These are the principles or charges which the Lord gives to us all, to fit us to rightly perform the duties which the different relations of life make obligatory upon us. 2. Quality: "Right" (v. 8). They are from the righteous God and are absolutely Just and equitable. 3. Effect: "Rejoicing the Heart" (v. 8). - . The true heart rejoices in justice and equity. FOURTH GROUP 1. Title: "The Commandment of the Lord" (v. 8). This brings into view the personal God who stands back of his law to en force Its demands to require obedi ence to its precepts. 2. Quality: "Pure" (v. 8). It is free from deceit and error. 3. Effect: "Enlightening the Eyes" (v. 8). The effect of God's law Is to give man ability, not only to under stand his love and salvation, but to be wise as to the things about him. FIFTH GROUP 1. Title: "The Fear of the Lord" (t. 0). . Reading the Word of God produces reverential fear in the heart of the reader. 2. Quality: "Clean" (v. 9). It is not only clean in itself, but sanctifies the heart of those who re ceive it. 1 3. Effect: "Enduring Forever" (v. 9). The life and relationship founded upon his law abide forever. SIXTH GROUP 1. Title: "The Judgments of the Lord" (v. 9). By this is meant the sentences pro nounced by God's Word. 2. Quality: "T rue and Righteous" (v. 9). The penalties prescribed by God are true, conformable to the intuitive moral sense of man. 3. Effect: "Serve as Warnings and Bring Reward" (v. 11). If the warnings be heeded, ship wrecks upon life's sea will be pre vented. Besides God pays a wage for obedience to his laws. Godliness Is profitable unto ail, having the promise of the life that now is, and that which Is to come. II. A Notable Example of Bible Study (Acts 8:26-39). 1. Who It Was (v. 27). ' The Ethiopian eunuch, a man of great authority. He was the secretary of the treasury of the Ethiopian queen. The wisest and best men and women of the earth have been reverent stu dents of the Bible and have testified to its beauty and power. 2. The Circumstances of (v. 28). It was while traveling that this great man . was studying the Bible. This, is a most excellent way to im prove moments while on a journey. 3. Doing Personal Work w. -29-37). Philip was taken from his great evangelistic work in Samaria and di rected to go to the desert. The Spirit directed Philip to join himself to the chariot in which the Ethiopian was traveling. Philip ran In obedience to the Spirit's command. One should be alert for the Spirit's direction as for the individual with whom to' do per sonal work. The eunuch was inquir ing after the "Way of life. But still he needed the help of a Spirit-taught man. CONCLUDING THE STORY OF AFTERNOON FROCKS The conclusion of the summer's story of afternoon gowns introduces a few new and interesting features. When midsummer was barely in sight along came organdie and took its place by the side of crepe georgette as a favorite for the sheerest and quaint est frocks. Then appeared foulard, In bold figured patterns, showing a white design on a colored ground, veiled with georgette, or otherwise combined with it, in the same color. Just by way of showing that georgette is not indispensable these figured foulards have been made up with wide laces, and again foulard has shown .Itself quite equal to standing alone in gowns that found no room for sheerer stuffs1. A graceful model for a foulard or crepe de chine or soft satin frock ap pears at the left of the picture. It has a plain" skirt with a tunic which starts out by being nearly as long as the skirt, but wanders upward .in its course about the figure until it fails to reach the knees, in length. The PRESENTING PAJAMAS AS SLEEPING GARMENTS Jiuf 1 ffA HI fer m ' i ttl & 1 1 ' in iTIIflFT mJ I 1 Logic, having lodged Itself in the mind of modern woman, makes it easy to explain why she finds so many good reasons for taking to trousers. She still ' walks in skirts, but she rides, swims, hunts, keeps bees, gardens and farms in bloomers or over alls or breeches. But there Is no logic that .explains her taking to pa jamas for sleeping garments or to replace other negligees, unless It is that she has discovered them to be most becoming. . - Anyway, the fact stands that in every representative collection of lin gerie pajamas. In two-piece and one piece styles, have as prominent repre sentation as night dresses andT negli gees. " Also there are about as many garments made of wash satin, crepe de chine and other wash silks as there are of fine cotton. The heavier cotton weaves are a thing of the past in un dergarments, excepting . petticoats, Among these must be some tnat are heavy to wear under sheer dresses. -.

The short coat is belted and lathed at the neck with a net collar. bodice has a folded vest of georgette. In the color of the foulard, at the front, and an embroidered collar. The small buttons are covered with the silk. At the right a frock of georgette achieves a tunic effect by the simple expedient of a wide tuck and bands of embroidery or braiding that looks like embroidery. It has a . soft and wide crushed girdle of georgette and a scarf collar that hangs below the waistline and is finished .with small silk covered balls. The very tiny but tons on" the sleeves are covered with several thicknesses of the georgette crepe. Foulard gowns are usually quiet in color, sand, beige, blue and black with navy blue having white figures, are all popular. In georgette and or gandie the gayer, flower-like colors are favored. Heliotrope, pale yellow, green, pink, rose and coral are the livelier tones, but sand and grey are never to be left out of the reckoning, in this delicate and beautiful fabric Another fascinating suit Is shown the little sketch at the left. It has pantalettesbreaklng out Into frills at the bottom and a delightful short smock finished with fancy stitching about the neck and sleeves.

Metal Millinery. Smart millinery shops in London are displaying metal helmets for women, presumably for wear during air raids; though it Is a question whether the fair wearer of a protective helmet would not flee to a bombproof refuge just as swiftly . as her sister whose headgear was fashioned of straw and silk. The metal helmets for women cost just about twice as much as those designed for the masculine sex. They are lined., with dainty and soft mate rial, and on top is a cunning knob which gives a rakish and distinctive line to the stern headgears & MARY 3AHAMQ3ER- ROBIN AND LEOPARD. "1 -would hate to be a robin," said the leopard to the little red robin who was singing In a tree near the leop ard's yard.. "Thank you for the jComplimert, you're very kind. j. m sure, saia ue robin, chirping, happily. "You're always so peaceful and so sweet," said the" leopard. "There "I'm a Wild Leop- 18 nothing fierce ard." ' an wild about you.- You're a silly little thing, I consider." "Too bad, too bad," chirped the robin. "I won't bother you any more then. I have a concert engagement at four o'clock, and" I might just as well have a little practice first." "No, no, don't leave," said the leop ard. "You amuse me. I really can't understand you." ' "I suppose." said the robin, who thereupon . returned to his former perch, "that it must be hard for a leop ard to think like a robin. It would be just as hard for me to think as you do. And so It's hard for you to understand me because we're both so different." "That's so," said the leopard, "we are very different. But I would like to know why you sing instead of roar, why you chirp Instead of growl, why you eat worms instead of animals, and why you are happy instead of cross." "I can't answer so many questions at a time," said the robin, "unless I chirp and sing and say to everything that It's all because I'm a robin a .n-Tr.l.n I" And the robin gave the loveliest of trills. "Now, you needn't begin to practice for that concert," said the leopard. "I want you to talk to me." "Dear me," said the robin. "You are . very severe! And pray tell why can't I practice If I want to? I can fly away from you, and you can't catch me. You're in a yard which Is only a very big cage." "Please don't be mean," said the leopard, and as he looked very sorrow ful, the robin said: ' 'Tm sorry. I didn't Intend to be mean, I am sure, bu you mustn't com mand me to talk to you. You must ask me politely." 1 "Very well," said the leopard. "Now, little Mr. Robin, will you kindly have speech with me? There," he added, "that was fine, wasn't It, robin?" The robin chirped and laughed." That was fine," he agreed. "Well, now I will answer your questions one by one." . "Good !" said the leopard. "In the first place," said the robin. T love to sing. It makes me happy. And too, I was given this voice by dear Mother Nature. It's wrong not to make the most of the things that are given to us, and to give others happi ness by them if we can." "Dear me," said the leopard, "you certainly have a good disposition. Well, continue." "I chirp Instead of growl, because I can talk in that way. I can't growl. And I eat worms because I think they're delicious, and my throat is the size for little worms and not for big meals.' "I am happy because the world Is so nice. There are brooks and trees, green lawns 'and this beautiful zoo park, there is sunshine and there Is dear Mrs. Robin Red Breast whom I love so much. She is such' a good, kind mate! And there are the dear baby robins, too." "Gracious!" growled the leopard softly, for he was trying to be nice. to the robin. "Well, your story Is very Interest tag, but there is an old, old, old saying about the leopard not being able to change his spots, which means, I believe, that the leopard can't change his nature, so I couldn't sing, nor chirp, nor eat worms. And Mrs. Leopard has even The Robin been known to eat ' Laughed, her children up! We could never tx. robins. We will always be leopards. And after all, I'm very glad, for rd hate to be gentle. "Do you know," he continued, "that I'm a leopard, a wild leopard, and I'll never change. Folks know that so they made up a saying about me which has always been true. "So good-day, little robin. Glad to have had a chat with you. But 1 can't be a robin, and I'm glad, after all, that I'm a leopard, for If I weren't I couldn't be wilder than the tiger!" And the robin agreed with the old, old saying as he flew off to the coo, cert. More Than One Use.
