'.V' .vi;1 'V- , ' '',' From a perusal of the memoranda issued by the ; British it appears that Sunday labor, in the opinion nf tli' i-nmmittM ! ' nnt nrnfitahle and that fnn tinuous work "is a profound mistake" and does not lead to increased output; that a system of shifts although impracticable in some cases is to be pre ferred to, overtime since the latter taxes the cfronnrth nf urnrtri trvrk ipvprclv rpaillt in tn nf time, because of exhaustion and sickness, and cur tails unduly the period of rest. Night work should ' be discouraged. Output cannot be maintained at the highest level for any considerable period if the -rtw1itinna i aurti 11 - learl in tYrrsSv t"aticril and to deterioration in the health of the worker. A recommendation is made that hours' should . not exceed fifty-six per week for men engaged in VCly llcaTJ Id LfVJI , Ul BIJKIJ ivm vtiigvu ill , moderately heavy labor, while sixty-four should be a maximum. - '.

In its report on sickness and injury the committee points out certain injurious conditions which should be guarded against as likely to dim inish seriously the efficiency of the labor force, j The medical examination of all workers before employment is "recommended, and it is suggested that factories should provide proper sanitary facil ities, saleguard machinery, make adequate medical and nurse schemes. The value of first-aid is emphasized. . t -:o:- Flour Grades and Why WITH prices pyramiding, an explanation is in order of what ' is meant by the different ."grades" of flour.'for flour is one of the commo dities into the making and vending of which; twen tieth 'century; artificialliry ' has .largely' entered. Aiouern nousewives nave lost tious quality ot bread in demanding nrst and tore most that it shall be lightest and" white'Stpahd progressive millers, recognizing that the! whiteness the whiteness of the flour, have perfected bleach ing processes to get "uniformity of color ( in' their : product ' --V.'V ":. '''' : '''. it has been a good advertising jm:. 't .l. j- r ...... f - y ; idea that the adoption of modern business methods has made it possible for the humblest laborer to ' cat bread, which formerly was only served at the tables of the wealthy, has therefore been exploited on a broad and comprehensive scale. fiiiinmn itr inr- Tniiiiiiuiif liir innwv iiuvrt. iitr wnai tne miners and middlemen nave aone in the way of turning a popular fallacy into legiti mate profits has not, however, satisfied the bakers, whose product has been subject to sumptuary con- ( trpl by municipal, governments ever since the bak inc of breid became a commercial orofession. In most communities a loaf bf baker's bread repre sents a certain definite unit cf weight. For a cer 'tain price, all bakers are expected to supply a loaf weighing no less than the minimum considered the standard. In the minds of the lawmakers the color of the product has been a matter of small concern, its weight appearing by far the most essential feature. ' ': . To make a long story short, the "grades" of flour :are based on the requirements of the master-bakers, and not on those of the consumer. The baker wants a flour that will produce the heaviest loaf. Hence, the "Number 1" flour for which the house wife pays the highest price because she imagines that anything that is called "Number 1" must be the very best, and therefore none too good for the novereign American citizens' dinner bucket, actual ly is no more nutritious than the lower and cheap er grades.'-. ;', vv . "Number 2" flour is sold at a lower price than "Number 1" because a barrel of the lower grade will not make as many loaves of, bread. The first grade..flour, is superlative yt its water-holding capa city and in that alone. A barrel of "Number 1" flour is worth more.to the baker than a barrel of "Number 2," because he sells his bread by weight, and a loaf of bread made from the best flour con tains an appreciably larger percentage of water. . .With the housewife who bakes her own bread the case ought to be different ; If. living can be brought down to a scientific basis; if the day's requirements for each member of the family are lut on the fight basifr that of supplying to each a sum total of calories sufficient to maintain health and the usual activities, the lower grades of flour are more economical. The baker makes a profit by using the better flour because by so doing he tan sell more water at flour prices. The house wife, on the other hand should care most for the proper feeding of the members of her household, at the least cost. ..It is not a question of her sell ing water at flour prices to the members of her own family..

United Statu without proclaiming it. . ' . , " The groundi on which America hat at la it eome into the fight are morally inexpugnable.. They should com mend themselves to all these Australians who have let ; themselves b deluded lato repeating the! sneaking '' (aeiflst cry. Australia in this war is in a condition of quasi-independeiet. Her contribution is voluntary. The moral right of the struggle against Germany should therefor appeal to Australians as it now ap 'peals to Americans. Those who have dared to prepare for a German penes by saying that "this is a trade war" must be silsnt and ashamed. America is at war for the sixth time in her history; nd this much. must be confessed for the great Repub lic, that in every struggle, no matter how mixed the I motives of war may hays been, a policy of liberation has always been included among them. Tht war of Independence, waged against Britalr from 1775 to 1783, put an end to the old theories of , "colonial empire', aad .prepared the way for the freedom enjoyed today by oversea, communities under the British flag.' Ths next war was the bVief naval episode of 1812'; undertaken partly to solidify the young nation, and partly to , defend neutral rights against belligerent Powers. Id the Mexican war of ' 1840, Texas had already revolted from Mexico before it became absorbed in th United States. Ths titanic struggle of the Civil War saw the North "die to set .', men free," as well as to assert the supreme power of : ths central government ia a federal republic. Finally, the commercial purposes 'of the. Spanish war of 1808 ' did not wholly overshadow ths act that ths liberation "' of republican Cuba was on of its objects. Thererore, tne world may truthfully say of these : : American cousins of snirs 'tbat they, never went to war ''Id a spirit of siere greed, nor with tyrannous ideals '. set before them. ' Their history places them spiritually beside the great democracies of Francs and Britain, and opposes them to German ideals of military con quest for eonquest 's sake. Philosophy, which may be only a longer way of writing the name of God, made them Allies of Britain and , Franco before the war ': began. '. , . . . "Moreover, the American t war, in the Ave struggles ' which he hss undertaken ia' two centuries, ha inva riably fought with a signally bravo and chivalrous . spirit. The Civil War was indeed bloody, and eost the lives of A00,0(K) men; but It contained no story of out rage.. Humanity's instincts of honor and pity, with . 1 the 'Americans, remained paramount over humanity's . iastinets for combat and slaughter. In this Cuban war " . this tale of martial chivalry was. repeated.'
